Greetings Faithful! Just like that Fred Warner Jersey
, the 2019 NFL Draft is over with. On Sunday, we discussed some winners and losers. Today, we are going to grade each team’s class. The San Francisco 49ers came away from the draft with eight new additions to the team. How did they do? How did the other 31 clubs do? We are here to give our thoughts and grades for each club. Let’s get right to it!What grade did you give the 2019 49ers draft class? Please share in the comments below!NFC East:Dallas Cowboys (C)Photo by Corey Perrine/Getty ImagesGranted, Dallas wasn’t on the clock till pick #58 they still overreached for some players, such as defensive tackle Trysten Hill. I did like their backend picks, which came with great value such as defensive ends Joe Jackson and Jalen Jelks. A decent draft for Dallas.Philadelphia Eagles (A-)Photo by Loren Orr/Getty ImagesThe Eagles only made five selections in this year’s draft, but as I mentioned yesterday, they addressed each of their needs on an already talented roster. Andre Dillard was a big get in the first round as was J.J. Arcega-Whiteside to give Carson Wentz another weapon in an already dangerous offense.New York Giants (D)Photo by Mark Brown/Getty ImagesDave Gettleman reached by a mile—maybe more—for Daniel Jones. They were not going to replace Odell Beckham Jr. but why they wouldn’t select a receiver with one of their three first round picks (the 3rd of which was a move-up) is a real head scratcher. DeAndre Baker will be productive as will Julian Love. As for the offense, is their intention for Saquon Barkley to touch the ball 400 times? Washington Redskins (A)Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesThey got the best pro style passer—Thanks to a division rival—in Dwayne Haskins in round one. They added depth to an already talented offensive line. They got shiny new weapons for Jay Gruden and Dwayne Haskins on offense. Bryce Love and Darrius Guice can be a scary duo to defend against. NFC SouthAtlanta Falcons (C-)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesSomething just isn’t sitting right with me with the Falcons draft class. I like their intentions to prioritize the offense line, however they sorely overreached for Chris Lindstrom. After investing a lot already on the offensive line this offseason, the Falcons burned more draft capital to move up for, wait for it, another tackle. I’m all for addressing the offensive line, but other needs were either not addressed or addressed too late in the draft.Carolina Panthers (B)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesBrian Burns is a great pick up for a team that had a need at rushing the quarterback. Will Grier is nice insurance, and who knows how much more down the road. I like the move up for Greg Little, but wow was it an expensive one. That cost the Panthers draft capital to address other needs. A nice haul for the Panthers all things considering. New Orleans Saints (B)Dale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsNo first round pick this year, meant we didn’t see the Saints till day 2. Once again, a wise choice selecting Erik McCoy to protect Drew Brees. They got great value when Chauncey Gardner-Johnson slipped. A good draft for the Saints with limited draft capital.Tampa Bay Buccaneers (A-)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesLast season the Bucs were a mess on defense. So, with their first five picks they focused on the defense. Devin White is going to be an all-pro, while defensive backs Sean Bunting, Jamel Dean, and Mike Edwards fit what Todd Bowles wants in his defensive scheme. NFC NorthChicago Bears (C+)Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesI’m adding Khalil Mack to their draft haul because of the cost it took to acquire his services. The cost was well worth it. Jordan Montgomery is going to produce those tough yards up the middle. I am curious as to how much of an impact Riley Ridley has in his rookie season.Detroit Lions (C)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesT.J. Hockenson is going to be an all-pro tight end. I don’t know why the Lions traded up for Will Harris. Most importantly, I don’t think the Lions are leaving last place in a very competitive NFC North. Their draft to me was a bit all over the place. I’m not sure if there is a clear vision yet in the motor city. Maybe Matt Patricia is trying to be the Patriots, but too many teams have tried and failed at that game already. Green Bay Packers (B-)Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty ImagesI am skeptical at best about Rashan Gary. Did they have to trade up for Darnell Savage? Jace Sternberger was a great value pick in the third round. Elgton Jenkins is another piece of protection for Aaron Rodgers. A good draft, not a great one for the Packers.Minnesota Vikings (A)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesThe roster is already talented. They should have gone to the playoffs last year. They leave the draft with 12 new additions that includes day one starter Garrett Bradbury along the offensive line. I’m usually quality over quantity, but the Vikings have a nice mix of both.NFC West: Arizona Cardinals (A)Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesSay what you want about Kyler Murray Solomon Thomas Jersey
, the Cardinals got their guy. They also got a lot of weapons for Murray and Kliff Kingsbury. Hakeem Butler is a steal on day 3, and Andy Isabella is going to be a pain to defend. at #3 in Quinnen Williams. He joins an improving roster with improved jerseys and is my pick as a potential dark horse for a playoff spot in 2019.New England Patriots (A)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsThe rich get richer. Ugh. Tom Brady has a shiny new toy to play with in former Arizona State receiver N’Keal Harry. Chase Winovich should also prove to be a key rotational piece on defense pretty much right away. AFC South:Houston Texans (C)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsDeshaun Watson needed help along the offensive line and that's exactly what he got - although it seemed like there were always other teams beating the Texans to the punch, leaving Houston with having to select their 2nd and 3rd options in most cases.Indianapolis Colts (B+)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsChris Ballard knows a thing or two about building a team well through the draft and this year was no exception. Rock Ya-Sin fills a need at corner and Ben Banogu has a chance to become a consistent threat on the edge of the defensive line.Jacksonville Jaguars (A-)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsJosh Allen serves as a replacement for the departed Dante Fowler and, honestly, could eventually grow to become a better all around player. Jawaan Taylor, one of the top o-line prospects this year, fell to the 2nd round. I imagine Nick Foles is all smiles right now.Tennesse Titans (C+)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsJeffrey Simmons is considered by many to be a top 5 talent in this year’s class but he won’t even sniff the field until 2020 due to an ACL injury. Players come back from those types of injuries all the time nowadays but it’s serious enough to warrant some concern. AFC North:Baltimore Ravens (B)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsMarquise “Hollywood” Brown gives second year quarterback Lamar Jackson a legit threat at wide receiver. Jaylen Ferguson, drafted in the 3rd round, has potential to grow into a fairly fearsome EDGE rusher.Cincinatti Bengals (B+)The Cincinnati Enquirer-USA TODAThe Bengals got their guy in OT Jonah Williams out of Alabama. Not only that but they also drafted a quarterback (Ryan Finley, NC State), which can serve as a fire being lit under Andy Dalton’s butt. It’s time to put up or shut up for him or else he may be out of a job sooner rather than later.Cleveland Browns (A)Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe Browns’ first round pick this year was traded to the Giants for Odell Beckham, Jr. So that works. Also, having Greedy Williams fall to them in the 2nd round (46 overall) doesn’t hurt. I also really like the Mack Wilson pick in round 5 as he has what it takes to become a leader on a still-very young defense.Pittsburgh Steelers (B-)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsReplacing Ryn Shazier in the middle of their defense forced Pittsburgh to be a little more aggressive than they usually are when it comes to the draft. Devin Bush, though, is worth the effort.AFC West:Denver Broncos (A)Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesJohn Elway has not had good luck with picking quarterback since Peyton Manning (in free agency or the draft) - that being said, it’s hard not to like Drew Lock falling to them in the second round. He will have time to learn the offense while Joe Flacco runs things. Also, Noah Fant at 20th overall should help out the Denver offense considerably.Kansas City Chiefs (C)Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY SportsOutside of Juan Thornhill there isn’t much I am excited about. Mecole Hardman serves as what seems to be Tyreek Hill’s replacement. Just all-around not a good weekend for the ChiefsLos Angeles Chargers (B+)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsThe Chargers beefed up their defensive line in the 1st round by selecting Jerry Tillery with the 28th overall pick and landed one of the top safety prospects in Nasir Adderley. It would have been nice to see them begin thinking about the heir-apparent to Phillip Rivers but, hey, they still did enough to improve.Oakland Raiders (B-)Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsClelin Ferrell will probably be a fine player but it’s hard to look beyond the fact that there were a few players who were graded higher and who would have made more sense at #4. Josh Jacobs should start at running back right away and make an immediate impact and safety Jonathan Abram is as disruptive as they come in the secondary. One of the NFL’s highest-profile cornerbacks does not trust the league’s officiating office to review pass interference calls correctly.San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman wrote on Twitter that he thinks the new rule allowing instant replay is going to result in the officiating office finding pass interference where they want to see it.“Now they can control the outcome as they see fit. Every defendable pass looks like PI in slow motion,” Sherman wrote.Responding to a PFT post about the rule change, Sherman suggested that the NFL will favor offensive players over defensive players, calling it a “One sided game.”Another high-profile defensive back, Eric Weddle, responded to Sherman’s tweet by calling the rule change “dumb.” The NFL may have some work to do on selling the replay change to the players who will be most affected by it.
