Over the last few decades, there has been an increased need for quick and accurate breakdowns of each team’s performance in the NFL Draft. Consequently, NFL draft grades have become a staple of the popular sporting event. This year, under special circumstances, these draft grades carry even more weight as sports fans around the globe look to devour any content that is aimed towards their favorite team.

Here at Pro Football Network, our NFL Draft analysts and Chief Draft Analyst Tony Pauline have been publishing 2020 draft grades and will continue to do so until we cover every team (published grades are linked below).

The PFN Mock Draft Simulator features over 350 prospects, free trades (including future year picks), the option to control any number of teams, and the ability for you to choose your own draft speed. Build your favorite team into a winner – click here to enter the PFN Mock Draft Simulator!

2020 NFL Draft Grades

Over the three day event, we covered each and every pick at length in our live draft day blog. Nearly all 255 prospects were broken down by Pauline and Andrew Dicecco as soon as the pick was made, with expert scouting reports linked back to every player. But now that the event has come and passed, how did each team do as a whole?

It is difficult to grade a prospect without having seen them put a foot on an NFL field, but by combining some of our big boards, expert analysis, value, and potential, we can get a clear overview of a team’s performance. Who reached for certain players? Who was able to profit from an inexplicable fall down draft boards? When all is said and done, who “won” the 2020 NFL Draft?

Please note – we have not published all draft grades yet. Check back daily to see if we have linked back to your team’s grades. This page was last updated on May 2 at 2:15 AM ET.
