Cole Madison did well in pass protection for Luke Falk at right tackle. He moved to right guard in the 2018 Senior Bowl. I'm surprised he went this early, but this is a good pick by the Packers. Not a steal, but a nice addition for depth at right guard or right tackle late in the draft.
New York already has Damon Harrison, Dalvin Tomlinson, and B.J. Hill for depth. The Giants really didn't need McIntosh and if they wanted another defensive tackle so badly they should have taken Maurice Hurst.
Hurst ran a 4.97 at Michigan's Pro Day despite getting dismissed from the 2018 NFL Combine due to a heart condition. People are crazy for waiting this long to take Hurst as this is easily an A+ grade for Oakland here.
Tampa Bay gets a wide receiver for depth. Justin Watson from South Fayette who had 81 receptions, 1,083 receiving yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns with the Penn Quakers in 2017. He dominated the 2018 East West Shrine game before having a great week in Mobile. The 6-3 220 lb wide receiver did not get an invite to the 2018 NFL Combine. Justin Watson ran a 4.39 at Penn's Pro Day did 25 reps on the bench press, and had a 40 inch vertical at Penn's Pro Day. Of all the big bodied receivers that are 6-2 200 lbs or bigger Watson is hands down the fastest in the class as well as the only sub 4.4 for someeone with that size. Great job by the parrot who outdrafts Jason Licht once again.
Micah Kiser projects as a backup right now, but if he can win blocks he can become a good starter down the road. I had Kiser going one pick later to Pittsburgh in my final mock, and I'm sure Kiser was on Pittsburgh's board too.
I had Tyler Conklin graded as a third rounder. I believe he can be a great starter down the road. I had Conklin graded higher than Bucky Hodges the tight end Minnesota drafted and cut. Great pickup by Minnesota here.
This may be the Rams best pick. The Rams may have secured an immediate replacement for Robert Quinn this late in the draft. If Ogbonnina Okoronkwo becomes that good, there may not be anyone who can keep the Rams from winning the NFC when you consider how strong their defensive line is outside of Ogbonnina Okoronkwo.
New Orleans has two good safeties with Von Bell and Marcus Williams. Jamerson impressed at the 2018 NFL Combine and depth to replace Kenny Vaccaro is the only thing sparing this pick from getting an F grade.
Seattle needs a right tackle for depth. Jamarco Jones is capable of surpassing first round pick Germain Ifedi for the starting right tackle job in Seattle. He may even be able to move to left tackle when Seattle moves on from Duane Brown. He just needs to work on not getting beat inside. Overall a great selection.
Cincinnati got this compensation pick at 170 thanks to Andew Whitworth signing with Los Angeles. Darius Phillips is versatile enough to play cornerback or safety. The 5-9 defensive back is a nice addition here.
Dallas got this compensation pick at 171 thanks to Barry Church signing with Jacksonville. They get a backup quarterback to Dak Prescott here.
Cooper Rush is not the best backup option. The Cowboys get a much better backup for Dak Prescott with Mike White out of Western Kentucky here.
I did a film session of Mike White. You can hear a quick clip of Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast and creator of The Evolution Network breaking down Mike White on tape though. I like White as a backup though.
Dallas got this compensation pick at 173 thanks to Brandon Carr signing with Baltimore. They traded this compensation pick to the Oakland Raiders though. Tony Mario had Johnny Townsend as his top ranked punter. Oakland needed a punter and they got one here.
