Draft 2016: NFC Draft Grades (Rotoworld)

Evan Silva unveils his 2016 Draft Grades for the NFC.

(Sat, 30 Apr 2016 16:40:00 PDT)
For the second straight year, defense was the early priority in the NFL draft for coach Dan Quinn and the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons chose Minnesota linebacker DeVondre Campbell in the fourth round on Saturday. Campbell was the third defensive player and second linebacker taken in Atlanta's first four picks.

2016 NFL draft grades for Rounds 2-3 (Shutdown Corner)
(Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:44:10 PDT)
CHICAGO  –  The Jags look scary. Jerry Jones gambled, as only he can. And there was a surprise at what quarterbacks heard their names called on Friday night. Oh, and someone traded UP to get a kicker. Here are knee-jerk reactions and grades for Day 2 of the NFL draft, which featured Rounds 2 and 3. Round 2 1. Cleveland Browns: DE Emmanuel Ogbah – A big, talented rush end who might stand up in the Browns’ 3-4 defense or bulk up and play the end spot. A bit of a curious pick given that uncertainty, but Ogbah is athletic and has a track record of getting to the QB. Grade: C+ 2. Tennessee Titans: DE Kevin Dodd – Pass rusher run! Dodd was one of our favorites, Shutdown Corner’s No. 14 overall player, and he has a chance to be a very good pro after breaking out last season and residing in the shadow of Shaq Lawson until the national title game. Dodd can play on his feet, has great length and is ascending. The Titans needed front-seven help. A nice start to their second day. Grade: A- 3. Dallas Cowboys: LB Jaylon Smith – Giddy up! Smith is a clear top-10 talent whose questionable knee caused forced him off some teams’ boards. But the Cowboys were willing to gamble on potential greatness here, and their team doctor performed the surgery on Smith after his Fiesta Bowl injury, so there’s a level of comfort there. Smith could be a star in this defense, either as a weakside or a middle linebacker. Figure on 2016 being a wash. This risk is significant; the payoff could be huge. Grade: C+. 4. San Diego Chargers: TE Hunter Henry  – This was about as easy a pick to mock in Round 2 as there might have been. The Chargers liked what they saw in the good receiving tight end, who reminds some of Greg Olsen and could be a natural replacement for Ladarius Green this year and Antonio Gates in 2017. Henry is not a great blocker but he can stretch the seam. Grade: B- 5. Jacksonville Jaguars: LB Myles Jack   – What a coup. We mocked Jack to the Jaguars for months before the injury news on his knee seemed to worsen by the day. But to trade up and score Shutdown Corner's fifth-rated player here — in addition to landing our best talent, Jalen Ramsey, on Day 1 — could be an incredible, once-a-decade type of coup. Even if Jack plays only five good years, it’s worth it. Grade: A 6. Kansas City Chiefs: DT Chris Jones – Jones has great potential, but he’s young and raw, and has some bust qualities to his game. Some weeks he looks great, others less so. But he could play almost any spot on the Chiefs’ front and could help immediately replace Mike DeVito up front. Grade: B- 7. Miami Dolphiins: CB Xavien Howard  – A later riser in the draft process who has the big frame the Dolphins are seeking at such a big need of a position. Howard was sneaky good last season and might be a good fit if he’s used correctly. He’s a very physical, grabby corner, which can work against him. Grade: C+ 8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DL Noah Spence – The Bucs wanted to come out of this draft with a pass rusher, and they got one. Spence has bent over backward for teams to show he does not have a problem after his multiple failed drug tests at Ohio State before he was kicked out of the Big Ten. Spence lacks bulk and can be run at, but he has great pass-rush feel and talent. Grade: A-

The Latest: 3rd round a graduation party for Bengals' Dunlap (The Associated Press)
(Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:27:59 PDT)
Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap turned the third round of the NFL draft into his own graduation party. Dunlap missed his graduation from Florida - he returned to get a bachelor's degree in the offseason - so that he could participate in the draft. ''It's awesome what they had Carlos doing,'' Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said.

Bengals get WR Tyler Boyd in 2nd round, LB Nick Vigil in 3rd (The Associated Press)
(Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:26:59 PDT)
The Bengals filled their biggest hole by drafting a receiver who reminds them of one that they lost. Tyler Boyd did everything at Pitt, even lining up in the backfield for handoffs and throwing the ball on occasion. It's a lot like what Mohamed Sanu did in Cincinnati, so the Bengals took Boyd in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday night.

Falcons draft LSU linebacker Deion Jones in 2nd round (The Associated Press)
(Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:05:51 PDT)
The Falcons spent the second night of the NFL draft upgrading their defense and giving quarterback Matt Ryan another tight end to target. Atlanta chose LSU linebacker Deion Jones in the second round on Friday night, hoping shore up a pass rush that's been among the NFL's worst over the last three years. In the third round, the Falcons selected Stanford's Austin Hooper, who likely becomes the No. 2 tight end behind starter Jacob Tamme.

One player hugged Roger Goodell for an uncomfortable amount of time (Shutdown Corner)
(Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:42:13 PDT)
It's become tradition for recently-drafted NFL players to embrace Roger Goodell while celebrating their new fortune. Whether or not they know (or care) that the commissioner will soon become their adversary is unclear; what matters is that their NFL dreams have come true so everyone looks like a friend. Of course, not every player hugs the same way. Some opt for a handshake that turns into a simple chest bump, others go for a rocking hug that looks like the awkward end of a middle-school dance. Then there was Florida safety Keanu Neal, who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. While some might say it looks like he was waltzing with Goodell, I think it looks an awful lot like he's stopped the commissioner and is waiting for officials to deem forward progress has been halted. Seriously, watch again as Goodell finally starts to worry about being deflated — insert Tom Brady joke! — and taps out after about 15 seconds of hugging.

Saints draft defensive lineman Rankins with 12th pick (The Associated Press)
(Thu, 28 Apr 2016 22:04:07 PDT)
Seeking immediate help for a defense that has languished near the bottom of the NFL for the past two seasons, the New Orleans Saints selected former Louisville defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins 12th overall in Thursday night's NFL draft. Saints coach Sean Payton said Rankins' combination of quickness, strength and versatility make him a player the Saints could use on any down - not to mention a constant threat to disrupt opposing quarterbacks with pressure up the middle. ''I'm fired up about our selection,'' Payton said.

Denver Broncos select QB Paxton Lynch in 1st round (The Associated Press)
(Thu, 28 Apr 2016 21:41:01 PDT)
Paxton Lynch is stepping into the long shadows of John Elway, Peyton Manning - and maybe even Mark Sanchez. The Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos selected the Memphis quarterback with the 26th overall pick of the first round in the NFL draft Thursday night. Elway said he still might add another veteran quarterback to the mix but declared that Lynch's selection puts an end to Denver's dalliance with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Round 1's grades for 2016 NFL draft (Shutdown Corner)
(Thu, 28 Apr 2016 21:24:42 PDT)
CHICAGO – One player's social media accounts dominated discussion. Jerry Jones couldn't pass up on a potential star running back. And Denver may have found its quarterback not named Sam Bradford. It was a wild first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night. Here's a look at the 31 picks, with knee-jerk reactions and grades: 1) Los Angeles Rams: QB Jared Goff – This pick has been in pretty much since the Rams moved up dramatically from No. 15 to 1, even if they kept the mystery going for a few weeks. Goff is a rhythm passer who has spent three years in the “Bear Raid” offense, and there will be a transition to more of a pro system with a first-year passing coordinator and a second-year QB coach. Patience, Rams fans. Grade: B

Bengals take cornerback William Jackson III in 1st round (The Associated Press)
(Thu, 28 Apr 2016 21:05:10 PDT)
After being shut out of the top receivers, the Bengals went to one of their favorite standby picks for the first round and added another cornerback who will have to wait his time. The Bengals are already set at the position with starters Adam ''Pacman'' Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick - their top pick in 2012 - returning as starters. Darqueze Dennard, their first choice in 2014, is competing for a bigger role on a defense that allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL last season.

(Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:42:58 PDT)
Coach Dan Quinn targeted Florida's hard-hitting strong safety Keanu Neal as a new anchor piece for Atlanta's defense when the Falcons selected Neal with the No. 17 pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night. There were reports the Falcons, who have only five picks in the draft, might trade down for additional picks. Instead, Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff said they wanted Neal as a difference-maker on defense.

Athletes chosen in NFL draft need to plan for the long game
(Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:02:55 PDT)
By Chris Taylor NEW YORK (Reuters) - Every year, the National Football League draft makes a number of strapping young men very, very rich. "As an athlete, your body is your company - and you're a depreciating asset," said Israel Idonije, a former defensive end with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions for more than a decade, starting in 2003. "That's why it's important to lay a foundation for life after football, while you're still in the league." That is exactly what Idonije did, buying a company that supplies communion cups to churches around the world, while he was still suiting up for the Bears.

Even in a year when the quarterbacks don't appear to be slam-dunk naturals to make it big in the NFL, that's where the focus will be when the draft begins Thursday night in Chicago. The Rams and Eagles mortgaged a whole chunk of their futures with huge deals to get the top two selections, and they're determined to find their franchise QB.
