Teams with the Best and Worst Drafts
 
Which team had the best draft? Which team had the worst draft?

I don't know about the worst draft, but KC walked away with DT Glenn Dorsey, OT/OG Branden Albert, CB Brandon Flowers, RB Jamaal Charles, and S DaJuan Morgan among others. That's a heckuva draft class.

The NFL Network cite the (Shefter) chefs, vikes, (Mayock) raisins, (Shefter) panthers, and (Dukes)crygirls as winners. Later, Casserly gave us high marks for sticking to our plan, he did cite our failure to address the trenches, however.

Hard to say who was worst. I think the Bengals were mentioned.

I think the Chiefs had the best I can't really say who had the worst.

It's not the popular thing to say, but the Patriots had a bad draft in my opinion.

-I think #10 is too high for Jerod Mayo

-Terrence Wheatley was a huge reach in the 2nd round. He's struggled to stay healthy and most projected as a 5th-7th round pick

-Kevin O'Connoll also has trouble staying healthy and Colt Brennan probably has just as much upside. Yet we got our QB three rounds later. O'Connoll was also projectd as a 5th-7th round pick.

-They needed help on the OL and didn't get any at all there

Yeah pretty much Chiefs had the best, I don't really see one team that had a head and shoulders below everyone else bad draft class though.

I agree, Mayo probably would have lasted into the 20's

I hear we were interested at Jerod Mayo at #21 as well, several t.v. announcers were saying that during yesterday.

Meyo was a mid 25 pick pretty obviously. No one else jumped at LBs until later. Strange because the Pats usually are good value dafters and that works well because they don't normally have holes to fill. I know they needed to get younger on D but Meyo was just an obvious reach. I think unfortunately for them though this draft was short on high end help in the back 7 where they are damn old.

Miami, Kansas City, New Orleans, St. Louis, and Green Bay did phenomenal.

Dallas did not-so-hot, Denver's draft was rough, Atlanta's was pretty unimpressive also. I definately have to throw Tennessee in here also.

New England actually had a rough weekend as well.

Well, St. Louis got Chris Long, so you can't say they had a bad draft. But taking Donnie Avery with the 33rd pick as the first WR over Sweed, Thomas, or Kelly was a huge reach and an awful pick. But it sure did help us!

The Jets also had a questionable move IMO when the traded their 2nd and 4th rounder to move up 7 spots to take Dustin Keller. Bad move. If they stayed put with the 36th pick Keller still would have been there. They already traded their 3rd and 5th rounders during free agency, so this move left them with no picks in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th rounds.

philly was solid... miami probably did the best (got three safe picks at the 3 hardest positions to fill - #1 DE, #1 QB, #1 LT, though henne might only be a good starter and not a great one), and the jaguars got two great pass rushers.

i think carolina and the vikes would be towards the bottom of the list. carolina's draft was pretty ugly. cinncy also drafted 3 wrs while CJ and who'syourmama are still on the team, though that is a bit of a situation. didn't really like houston or oakland that much either. mcfadden is good, but he has the reggie-i-can't-break-tackles-bush syndrome.

or they could have taken brian brohm, since, you know, QB's an actual need of theirs.

i think the raven's blew it with flacco too.

I thought Carolina got some quality players but at too high of a cost.

I think Jacksonville gave up way too much for Harvey

And the Panthers had probably the worst trade of the weekend trading a 2nd, 4th, and 1st in 2009 just to move up to get Otah
