Vikings had a hole at LT and Darrissaw is a solid prospect to fill it. The athletic technician needs more poa power but he's steadily improved at VTech and should continue to do so. 3rd round OG Davis is a rock solid depth guy.

 

QB Mond may have been taken a little high for an insurance back up but he's ideal for that role and will eventually get his shot. LB Surratt's a great scheme fit and should eventually take over Barr's spot.

 

DE Jones was a reach. He profiles as a try hard back up type with a 50/50 chance for the roster. As a 3rd, the Vikings apparently see him as a future starter. The other edge selection, DE Robinson, is a bit of the oppossite;he didn't produce in college but is expected to find his niche as a pro. He's got unique length but needs to prepare like a pro to develop.

 

Taking RB Nwangwu as a mid rounder to just replace Abdullah seems steep. CB Bynum was one of my favorite prospects in this class but he's entering a crowded DB room. Hopefully Pat Peterson rubs off on him.

 

WR ISM was a solid later round pick but don't be surprised if UDFA WR Philyor outplays him. DT Twyman was a decent late round get. His ability as an interior rusher would be welcome addition if it manifests. Vikings really seemed to empahsize prospects with leadership and character this year and we'll see if that can get them over the hump.

Packers finally nailed their need for a man corner opposite Alexander. CB Stokes is an elite athlete with technician traits.

 

OC Myers is a physical brute that's rough around the edges. He's a solid fit for the run game as he becomes more precise with his technique. 4th rounder Newman is another solid add to the OL group. He also projects as a future starter.

 

Slot WR Rodgers projects as another yac guy besides Adams. DT Slaton gives solid depth at the nose. CB Jean-Charles is a dime playmaker. LB McDuffie fits the scheme well and will be groomed as a key contributor down the road. RB Hill might have a tough time earning a spot inside a crowded RB room. UDFA Uphoff will get a shot to make it on ST.

GM Brad Holmes just threw it down in his first go as a draft decision maker. Blue chip OT Sewell is a physical people mover but will have to adjust to playing on the opposite side. DT Onwuzurike was one of the few true difference makers at the position in this class. DT McNeil looks to transform himself from a college 0 technique to a pro 3 tech. He's tough to move off the ball inside, if nothing else.

 

CB Melifonwu has all the tools and flashed on film but isn't a consistent playmaker. WR St. Brown is a devastating blocker for his size and punches up all the time but has an ordinary skill set and size.

 

LB Barnes is a leave it all on the field type that can be especially disruptive when he anticipates correctly. He's a high upside mid rounder. RB Jefferson is one of the most talented runners in this class but brings a pedestrian skill set and size. That said he's a good bet to stick and outplay his draft slot.

 

The Lions signed one of my favorite interior offensive lineman in this class as an UDFA in OC Drake Jackson. He's a quick, tough, experienced guy but may get buried behind starter Ragnow. OG Kraemer is a people mover when healthy. WR's McKinley and Surratt are big 50/50 guys that could see snaps inside a light WR room.

Bears made the play they had to and went up for a possible franchise QB. Fields has the grit to be successful in Chicago but the scheme and coaching will loom large. OL Jenkins was a great get in the 2nd but fashioning him as a LT might be a bit much. OT Borum backs him up as a mid rounder but he's a guy that could've gone undrafted imo.

 

RB Herbert is an explosive guy that will be a steal if he plays with better physicality. WR Newsome is a punt returner and slot guy that can make acrobatic catches but doesn't get consistent separation.

 

CB Graham and DT Tonga are solid athletes for their positions and have flashed but need technique overhauls to stick on the roster. UDFA Edge Snowden was a guy most thought would be drafted. If he doesn't stick as a player he'd make a great executive one day.
