2021 Draft Team-By-Team Grades

By

NFC East

New York Giants: A-

Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida B-

Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia A

Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF B+

Elerson Smith, LB, Northern Iowa A-

Gary Brightwell, RB, Arizona B-

Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma State B

Analysis:  The Toney pick was a head scratcher, but he’s dynamic with the ball in his hands and the Giants lack that after the catch ability. But other than that pick, the only questionable pick was running back Gary Brightwell in the sixth round. Gettleman got great value for Ojulari, corner Aaron Robinson (71) and edge rusher Elerson Smith (116). Watch out for Smith to be a gem of this draft. The Giants not only got some talent that I love, but three picks in next year’s draft, including a first round pick. (Shaun Chornobroff)

Washington Football Team: B+

Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky B

Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas A-

Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota B+

Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina  A-

John Bates, TE, Boise State B+

Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati B

Camaron Cheeseman, LS, Michigan C+

William Bradley-King, DE, Baylor B+

Shaka Toney, DE, Penn State A

Dax Milne, WR, BYU B+

Analysis: This was a really solid draft for Washington. I may not love Davis, but he’s got a lot of upside and is a great fit in Ron Rivera’s defense. I think Washington was great in the middle rounds, and Cosmi was a tackle who I had a first-round grade on.  (Cade Conzemius)

Philadelphia Eagles: B

Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama A

Landon Dickerson, IOL, Alabama B+

Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech C

Zech McPhearson, CB, Texas Tech C

Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis A+

Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, USC C

Tarron Jackson, DE, Coastal Carolina B

JaCoby Stevens, LB, LSU B+

Analysis: After a season of turmoil and major confusion at their quarterback position, Howie Roseman had all eyes on him to see if he can turn his team around. Roseman took the best player on the board in Devonta Smith in the first and added one of my favorite lineman in the second round.

Memphis running back Kenneth Gainwell was an absolute steal in the fifth round as he was my third overall back in this class and will contribute as an all-around weapon. After this, it was a pretty average haul for a team that has major holes at linebacker, secondary, and receiver. The Eagles definitely have their eyes set on next year’s draft where they have three 1st round picks. (Daniel Alameda)

Dallas Cowboys: B

Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State A

Kevin Joseph, CB, Kentucky B

Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA B

Chauncey Golston, DE, Iowa B

Nahshon Wright, CB, Oregon State B-

Jabril Cox, LB, LSU A

Josh Ball, OT, Marshall B+

Simi Fehoko, WR, Stanford B

Quinton Bohanna, DT, Kentucky B

Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina A-

Analysis: Getting Micah Parsons in the fourth round and a second-round talent in Jabril Cox in the fourth round makes this Cowboys linebacker corps easily the best in football in my life. But I am not a big fan of Joseph in the second round, especially with Asante Samuel Jr. sitting there and the subsequent gamble of Osa Odighizuwa was one I am not as big a fan of as most. His athleticism is there, but I am not his biggest fan. (Shaun Chornobroff)
