2021 Draft Team-By-Team Grades


AFC South

Jacksonville Jaguars Grade: A-

Trevor Lawrence QB Clemson A

Travis Etienne RB Clemson D

Tyson Campbell CB Georgia C+

Walker Little OT Stanford A

Andre Cisco S Syracuse B

Jay Tuefele DT USC C-

Jordan Smith DE UAB B-

Luke Farrel TE Ohio State B

Jalen Camp WR Georgia Tech B

Analysis: The Jaguars got their guy in Trevor Lawrence which wasn’t a surprise at all. They attacked O-Line with Walker Little, and they hit their secondary during Day-2. I didn’t love the Etienne Pick in the back end of the first round due to the tread on his tires and the lack of value in the RB position, but overall they had a great draft. (Cade Conzemius)

Indianapolis Colts: B

Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan A

Dayo Odeyingbo, DE, Vanderbilt B

Kylen Granson, TE, SMU B

Shawn Davis, S, Florida B+

Sam Ehlinger, QB, Texas A

Mike Strachan, WR, Charleston C

Will Fries, OT, Penn State B+

Analysis: In the Colts post-draft press conference, Chris Ballard was extremely juiced by adding to their defensive line, but he also addressed the fact that there are still needs on this roster. Regardless, Paye will immediately step in and be a starter while Dayo won’t be available until halfway through the season (Torn Achilles), and if he comes back healthy, could be dominant in 2022. I love the passion and heart that Sam Ehlinger will add to the QB room and Shawn Davis is a hard-hitting safety who is a fun pick with potential. Overall, the Colts got better in the draft, but there wasn’t a superb pick that they made. (Daniel Alameda)

Tennessee Titans: B-

Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech B

Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State A

Monty Rice, LB, Georgia: C+

Elijah Molden, CB, Washington: B

Rashad Weaver, DE, Pittsburgh: B+

Analysis: I guess Titans GM Jon Robinson has short arms because he did a lot of reaching in this draft. If Farley stays healthy, that pick is an A+, but his injury worries scare me, especially in a year where medical checks could not be done as consistently. The team selected Georgia LB Monty Rice, 92nd overall, a clear reach in my eyes, before reaching on Louisville WR Dez Fitzpatrick (109) a round later, selecting him before the likes of Tylan Wallace and Amon-Ra St. Brown. Not a horrible draft, but it wasn’t my favorite to say the least. (Shaun Chornobroff)

Houston Texans: C+

Davis Mills, QB, Stanford B-

Nico Collins, WR, Michigan A-

Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami A-

Garret Wallow, LB, TCU B

Roy Lopez, DT, Arizona B

Analysis: I am a Davis Mills fan, but I think selecting him here was a panic pick and that usually leads to quarterbacks being set up for failure. I think the team got the Collins pick right and landed an absolute steal with Miami tight end Brevin Jordan (147) in the fifth round. I don’t think the Texans did awful, but they messed up their first pick after waiting two rounds and I punished that harsher than most. (Shaun Chornobroff)
