    Atlanta Falcons

    • Round 1, Pick 8
      Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

      Jase McClellan, RB, Alabama
      Grade: D
    • Round 6, Pick 187

      Grade: C+
    • Round 6, Pick 197 (from CLE)
      Zion Logue, DT, Georgia
      Grade: C

    Overall Grade: D

    The egregious mistake of selecting quarterback Michael Penix Jr. at No. 8 overall after you signed Kirk Cousins to a four-year deal worth up to $180 million dollars is enough to garner an “F” grade alone. But trading up to reach on an interior defensive line prospect in the second round was the cherry on top of the disaster cake for the 2024 Atlanta Falcons draft experience.

    Baltimore Ravens

    • Round 1, Pick 30
      Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson
      Grade: B+
    • Round 2, Pick 62
      Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington
      Grade: B+
    • Round 3, Pick 93
      Adisa Isaac, EDGE, Penn State
      Grade: A+

      Grade: C
    • Round 7, Pick 228 (from NYJ)
      Nick Samac, C, Michigan State
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 250
      Sanoussi Kane, S, Purdue
      Grade: B-

    Overall Grade: A-

    Say what you want about the Baltimore Ravens, but they consistently navigate the draft board very well over the years. Despite many linking the team to a wide receiver on Day 1, the team added Clemson CB Nate Wiggins on Day 1.

    They then followed up that selection by finding a potential future replacement for Kevin Zeitler or John Simpson at guard with Roger Rosengarten in the second round.

    Other exceptional value picks were Iowa State cornerback T.J. Tampa and Marshall running back Rasheen Ali in the fourth and fifth rounds, respectively.

    Buffalo Bills

    • Round 2, Pick 33 (from CAR)
      Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State
      Grade: B+
    • Round 2, Pick 60

      DeWayne Carter, DT, Duke
      Grade: B+
    • Round 4, Pick 128
      Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky

      Sedrick Van Pran-Granger, C, Georgia
      Grade: A-
    • Round 5, Pick 160 (from GB)
      Edefuan Ulofoshio, LB, Washington
      Grade: C+
    • Round 5, Pick 168* (from NO through GB)
      Javon Solomon, EDGE, Troy
      Grade: B+
    • Round 6, Pick 204
      Tylan Grable, OT, UCF
      Grade: B+
    • Round 6, Pick 219* (from GB)
      Daequan Hardy, CB, Penn State
      Grade: B-
    • Round 7, Pick 221 (from TEN through KC)
      Travis Clayton, G, International Player Pathway
      Grade: B

    Overall Grade: B+

    The Buffalo Bills wrapped up their 2024 NFL Draft class on Saturday evening with an impressive haul of players at positions of need, with multiple impact makers safely squirreled away from training camp. Adding weapons for Josh Allen was always the priority, and the franchise landed Keon Coleman while making moves to acquire more capital.

    With DeWayne Carter and Cole Bishop, the defensive spine was significantly strengthened, while Troy pass rusher Javon Solomon was a dangerous add in the fifth round. There weren’t too many reaches, they hit on plenty of needs and even provided intrigue by selecting British-born offensive tackle Travis Clayton to open the seventh round. Solid stuff.

    Carolina Panthers

    • Round 1, Pick 32 (from KC through BUF)
      Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina
      Grade: A-
    • Round 2, Pick 46 (from IND)
      Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas
      Grade: B
    • Round 3, Pick 72 (from NYJ)
      Trevin Wallace, LB, Kentucky
      Grade: B-
    • Round 4, Pick 101
      Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas
      Grade: A
    • Round 5, Pick 157 (from MIN through NYJ)
      Chau Smith-Wade, CB, Washington State
      Grade: B-
    • Round 6, Pick 200 (from DAL through HOU and BUF)
      Jaden Crumedy, DT, Arkansas
      Grade: B+
    • Round 7, Pick 240 (from PIT)
      Michael Barrett, LB, Michigan
      Grade: C

    Overall Grade: B

    The Dave Canales era in Carolina has started off with a solid first draft class headlined by South Carolina WR Xavier Legette and Texas RB Jonathon Brooks.

    Both players may require a bit of patience from fans for both players to reach their potential, but both have an exceptionally high ceiling and should help Bryce Young in some capacity immediately. They could make this offense elite if they all reach their potential together.

    Chicago Bears

    • Round 1, Pick 1 (from CAR)
      Caleb Williams, QB, USC
      Grade: A+
    • Round 1, Pick 9
      Rome Odunze, WR, Washington
      Grade: A+
    • Round 3, Pick 75
      Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale
      Grade: A-
    • Round 4, Pick 122 (from PHI)
      Tory Taylor, P, Iowa
      Grade: B
    • Round 5, Pick 144 (from CHI through BUF)
      Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas
      Grade: A+

    Overall Grade: A+

    The duo of Caleb Williams and Rome Odunze will define the Bears’ 2024 class. Williams has the potential to be truly special, and with Odunze, D.J. Moore, and Keenan Allen in his arsenal, he has everything he needs to reach his ceiling.

    Everything after Williams and Odunze served as a bonus for the Bears, but they still managed to use their remaining picks to their advantage.

    In Round 3, Amegadjie was a high-upside investment with starting potential at tackle and guard. Taylor fills a void at punter, and later, the Bears were proactive in trading back into the draft to acquire a dynamic EDGE in Booker.

    Chicago’s roster was almost complete heading into the 2024 NFL Draft. Now, one could argue they’re ready to make noise in the upcoming season.

    Cincinnati Bengals

    • Round 1, Pick 18
      Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

      Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan
      Grade: B

      Jermaine Burton, WR, Alabama
      Grade: B+
    • Round 3, Pick 97*
      McKinnley Jackson, DT, Texas A&M
      Grade: A-
    • Round 4, Pick 115
      Erick All, TE, Iowa
      Grade: B-
    • Round 5, Pick 149
      Josh Newton, CB, TCU
      Grade: B
    • Round 6, Pick 194
      Tanner McLaughlin, TE, Arizona
      Grade: B-
    • Round 6, Pick 214*
      Cedric Johnson, EDGE, Ole Miss
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 224 (from HOU)
      Daijahn Anthony, CB, Ole Miss
      Grade: B-
    • Round 7, Pick 237
      Matt Lee, C, Miami (FL)
      Grade: B-

    Overall Grade: B

    The Bengals clearly prioritized addressing both the offensive and defensive line units heading into the 2024 NFL Draft and executed that strategy effectively by investing three of their first four picks in the trenches with Georgia OT Amarius Mims, Michigan DT Kris Jenkins, and Texas A&M DT McKinnley Jackson.

    The best value pick of the draft may have been Alabama WR Jermaine Burton at No. 80 overall, who enters the league with some character issues but immense production upside with his explosive vertical skill set.

    Cleveland Browns

    • Round 2, Pick 54
      Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

    • Round 3, Pick 85
      Zak Zinter, G, Michigan
      Grade: B-
    • Round 5, Pick 156 (from PHI)
      Jamari Thrash, WR, Louisville
      Grade: C+
    • Round 6, Pick 206 (from BAL)
      Nathaniel Watson, LB, Mississippi State
      Grade: C+
    • Round 7, Pick 230 (from ATL)
      Myles Harden, CB, South Dakota
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 243
      Jowon Briggs, DT, Cincinnati
      Grade: B

    Overall Grade: B

    The Browns prioritized adding talent along the interior of their defensive line with their top spick at No. 54 overall and selected Ohio State’s Michael Hall Jr. to join Dalvin Tomlinson and Shelby Harris in the defensive tackle rotation.

    They also added Michigan guard Zak Zinter and Louisville wide receiver Jamari Thrash as potential future contributors in the middle rounds.

    Dallas Cowboys

    • Round 1, Pick 29 (from DET)
      Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma
      Grade: B+
    • Round 2, Pick 56
      Marshawn Kneeland, EDGE, Western Michigan
      Grade: B+
    • Round 3, Pick 73 (from MIN through DET)
      Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State
      Grade: B+
    • Round 3, Pick 87
      Marist Liufau, LB, Notre Dame
      Grade: B-
    • Round 5, Pick 174*
      Caelen Carson, CB, Wake Forest
      Grade: A
    • Round 6, Pick 216*
      Ryan Flournoy, WR, SE Missouri State
      Grade: B+
    • Round 7, Pick 233 (from LV)
      Nathan Thomas, OT, Louisiana
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 244
      Justin Rogers, DT, Auburn
      Grade: C+

    Overall Grade: B+

    It might not have been the sexiest draft class of all time, but the Dallas Cowboys came away from the 2024 having built a very clear identity for the franchise going forward. Bullyball is coming to the Cowboys, with some big nasty beasts being selected on both sides of the ball.

    Tyler Guyton has long-term left tackle potential, and Cooper Beebe is a beast on the interior, giving Dallas some flexibility as to how they construct their best five offensive linemen going forward.

    Marist Liufau is a seek-and-destroy heavy-hitter from the linebacker position, and even wide receiver Ryan Flournoy has physicality as the hallmark of his game.

    If you were looking to pick fault, you could argue that there were better nose tackle options available to complete the class in Round 7, but it was good work from a Cowboys front office who were feeling the heat following an offseason of relative inactivity.

    Denver Broncos

    • Round 1, Pick 12
      Bo Nix, QB, Oregon
      Grade: B-
    • Round 3, Pick 76
      Jonah Elliss, EDGE, Utah
      Grade: B
    • Round 4, Pick 102 (from WAS through SEA)
      Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon
      Grade: A+
    • Round 5, Pick 145 (from NYJ)
      Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri
      Grade: B+
    • Round 5, Pick 147
      Audric Estime, RB, Notre Dame
      Grade: B-
    • Round 7, Pick 235 (from SEA)
      Devaughn Vele, WR, Utah
      Grade: B-
    • Round 7, Pick 256 (from NYJ)
      Nick Gargiulo, C, South Carolina
      Grade: A+

    Overall Grade: B+ 

    The vast majority of the Broncos 2024 class’ impact will be weighed based on Nix’s performance at QB. He is the tide that raises all boats — but value acquisitions like Franklin, Abrams-Draine, and Gargiulo can’t go overlooked.

    With the little capital they had, the Broncos were at least able to address multiple needs, while also adding a QB who could be a competent starter in Sean Payton’s scheme. Time will tell what the ultimate returns are, but this was a step in the right direction.

    Detroit Lions

    • Round 1, Pick 24
      Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama
      Grade: A+
    • Round 2, Pick 61
      Ennis Rakestraw, CB, Missouri
      Grade: C+
    • Round 4, Pick 126 (from GB through NYJ)
      Giovanni Manu, OT, British Columbia
      Grade: B-
    • Round 4, Pick 132* (from SF through PHI)
      Sione Vaki, RB/S, Utah
      Grade: C
    • Round 6, Pick 189 (from BUF through HOU)
      Mehki Wingo, DT, LSU
      Grade: A+
    • Round 6, Pick 210* (from PHI)
      Christian Mahogany, G, Boston College
      Grade: A+

    Overall Grade: B+

    Lions fans can feel good about the latest class that Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell put together. Terrion Arnold is a true blue-chip prospect at CB, and Mekhi Wingo and Christian Mahogany were two of the best value acquisitions on Day 3. Both could make a major imprint early in their Lions careers.

    There were a few moves that felt redundant or forced. Ennis Rakestraw Jr. is a good player and scheme fit, but the 61st pick could’ve been spent on an EDGE or WR. And trading capital to acquire a potentially positionless hybrid in Vaki wasn’t ideal, either.

    Nevertheless, the Lions had a successful stretch in the 2024 NFL Draft overall. And more importantly, they aggressively targeted weaknesses, with the intent of rising back to contention in 2024.

    Green Bay Packers

    • Round 1, Pick 25
      Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona
      Grade: B+
    • Round 2, Pick 45 (from DEN through NO)
      Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M
      Grade: B
    • Round 2, Pick 58
      Javon Bullard, S, Georgia
      Grade: A
    • Round 3, Pick 88
      MarShawn Lloyd, RB, USC
      Grade: C+
    • Round 3, Pick 91 (from BUF)
      Ty’Ron Hopper, LB, Missouri
      Grade: C+
    • Round 4, Pick 111 (from NYJ)
      Evan Williams, S, Oregon
      Grade: C+
    • Round 5, Pick 163 (from BUF)
      Jacob Monk, OL, Duke
      Grade: B+
    • Round 5, Pick 169*
      Kitan Oladapo, S, Oregon State
      Grade: C+
    • Round 6, Pick 202
      Travis Glover, OT, Georgia State
      Grade: B+
    • Round 7, Pick 245
      Michael Pratt, QB, Tulane
      Grade: A
    • Round 7, Pick 255*
      Kalen King, CB, Penn State
      Grade: A-

    Overall Grade: B-

    With a strong, ascending roster, the Packers had a larger margin for error in the 2024 NFL Draft. But that doesn’t change the fact that a few of their picks were reaches on the value board or somewhat redundant with the personnel they’d already acquired.

    Marshawn Lloyd and Ty’Ron Hopper, in particular, felt premature on Day 2, while Jordan Morgan will also be pressured to play at a high level right away after going in Round 1.

    Nevertheless, for all the uncertainty, picks like Bullard, Monk, and Glover matched fit and value perfectly, and in Round 7 – as they always do – the Packers managed to score a couple of potential buy-low steals.

    Houston Texans

    • Round 2, Pick 42 (from MIN)
      Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia
      Grade: B
    • Round 2, Pick 59
      Blake Fischer, OT, Notre Dame
      Grade: C-
    • Round 3, Pick 78 (from SEA through WAS and PHI)
      Calen Bullock, DB, USC
      Grade: C
    • Round 4, Pick 123 (from CLE through HOU and PHI)
      Cade Stover, TE, Ohio State
      Grade: B
    • Round 6, Pick 188 (from MIN)
      Jamal Hill, LB, Oregon
      Grade: B-
    • Round 6, Pick 205 (from DET)
      Jawhar Jordan, RB, Louisville
      Grade: C+
    • Round 7, Pick 238 (from NO)
      Solomon Byrd, EDGE, USC
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 247
      Marcus Harris, DT, Auburn
      Grade: A
    • Round 7, Pick 249 (from DET)
      LaDarius Henderson, OL, Michigan
      Grade: B+

    Overall Grade: B-

    Much of the Texans’ grade is predicated on Ryans’ ability to develop the defenders he chose. On paper, Bullock, Hill, and Byrd are solid talents, but they need to be put in a position to succeed.

    To see the full analysis of the Houston Texans draft class, make sure to check out our full Texans draft grades.

    Indianapolis Colts

    • Round 1, Pick 15
      Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA
      Grade: A
    • Round 2, Pick 52 (from LAR through CAR)
      Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas
      Grade: A+
    • Round 3, Pick 79 (from JAX through ATL and ARI)*
      Matt Goncalves, OL, Pittsburgh
      Grade: C-
    • Round 4, Pick 117
      Tanor Bortolini, C, Wisconsin
      Grade: B+
    • Round 5, Pick 142 (from TEN through CAR)
      Anthony Gould, WR, Oregon State
      Grade: B
    • Round 5, Pick 151
      Jaylon Carlies, S, Missouri
      Grade: B
    • Round 5, Pick 164 (from DET through PHI)
      Jaylin Simpson, S, Auburn
      Grade: B-
    • Round 6, Pick 201 (from DET through PHI)
      Micah Abraham, CB, Marshall
      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 234
      Jonah Laulu, EDGE, Oklahoma
      Grade: D+

    Overall Grade: A

    The Latu and Mitchell selections buoy the class, but Bortolini and a string of DB selections also raise the value.

    Even Goncalves and Laulu, who received C- or lower grades, could build productive careers in Indy. GM Chris Ballard obviously had a plan entering the draft, and he executed it.

    Jacksonville Jaguars

    • Round 1, Pick 23 (from CLE through HOU and MIN)
      Brian Thomas, WR, LSU

      Grade: B
    • Round 7, Pick 236
      Myles Cole, EDGE, Texas Tech
      Grade: B

    Overall Grade: B

    As with most Trent Baalke drafts, the Jaguars went with high-upside players who could also flame out in a few years. But if they hit on players such as Smith, Foster, and Cole, Jacksonville will be in a position to compete for deep playoff runs.

    Once again, Brett Veach put on a masterclass of playing the board and added droves of talent in the process. Worthy is the gem of the class, but Wiley could legitimately be a successor to Kelce on offense, and Suamataia is a starting tackle in waiting.

    On defense, Hicks can be a difference-maker at safety with his range and physicality, and all of the Chiefs’ other moves were savvy ones to solidify depth and long-term security. The Chiefs build through the draft, and this class was just a continuation of that.

    On the surface, Tom Telesco’s first draft with the Raiders was a success. Brock Bowers and Jackson Powers-Johnson were stellar value acquisitions early on, and Glaze has starting upside at the right tackle spot.

    On Day 3, the Raiders continued to follow the theme of value, adding high-upside DBs like Richardson, Devonshire, and Taylor, and stopping the fall of a versatile weapon in Laube. The Raiders covered the bases they needed to, and added that extra playmaking flair as well.

    There was a sense ahead of the draft that the Chargers wouldn’t be able to hit everything they needed to without trading down from No. 5 overall.

    Fast forward to now, and they have a blue-chip starting OT duo, a WR core with new life and variable skill sets, a young and talented defensive back room, new run defense reinforcements up front, and a defensive leader at LB.

    The Chargers covered a lot of ground in the 2024 NFL Draft and were able to do so while also making moves of substance at multiple spots. This draft should help kickstart the process of reworking the roster in a competitive AFC West.

    Another NFC West team, another A. Sure, I may not be the toughest grader, but look at the Rams’ draft class and point out a clear miss. It was a defensive-focused haul until Day 3, and GM Les Sneed has proven they know how to scout and develop late-round selection.

    Miami Dolphins

    Overall Grade: B-

    It was an interesting 2024 NFL Draft for the Miami Dolphins that might not be immediate dividends. Their first two picks, Chop Robinson and Patrick Paul have some high-end athletic traits and measurables that, if they can be developed, could turn them into excellent selections.

    However, if you want to see an immediate return on your early-round investments, that’s not likely to happen in Miami.

    Although EDGE was considered a need coming into the draft, selecting two pass rushers in the first four picks can be considered excessive, even if the latter selection was great value at pick 158.

    Given the rumors circulating before the draft that Miami would take a receiver early, it was somewhat poetic that their biggest wins from a draft spot vs. PFN Big Board ranking perspective were with Malik Washington and Tahj Washington, who should compete to start in the slot in 2024.

    Overall Grade: A-

    The Vikings’ sparse Day 3 class didn’t carry the same kind of weight that other teams’ did in the 2024 NFL Draft. On Day 3, the Vikings added a developmental CB, a kicker, and trench depth on both sides of the ball.

    That said, the Day 3 stretch was never going to sway Minnesota’s draft grade too far in either direction, because in Round 1, they added two franchise-defining players on either side of the ball.

    J.J. McCarthy has a legitimate chance to be Minnesota’s next franchise QB with the support he’s been given. And at 17th overall, Dallas Turner is a superb value addition, with the tools to wreck offensive game plans. That duo alone made Minnesota’s class a success.

    Overall Grade: B+

    The Bill Belichick era in New England is well and truly over. The Patriots put together an exciting offensive class, the like of which hasn’t been seen in Foxboro recently, perhaps not ever. Headlined by quarterback Drake Maye, the number one overall player on the PFN Big Board, there can be genuine enthusiasm about what New England’s offense can become in the future.

    The franchise surrounded him with a plethora of skill players in the 2024 NFL Draft too, with Ja’Lynn Polk and Javon Baker providing excellent outlets, not to mention the versatile and athletic Jaheim Bell.

    While we’re gushing over the skill player additions, it’s worth tempering excitement over the class as a whole because both Caedan Wallace and Layden Robinson were a significant reach at positions of need on the offensive front. Thankfully, Maye has the athletic ability to extend plays when placed under pressure.

    The Saints’ top priority was to add talent along the offensive line unit, with offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk’s immediate future currently up in the air. They did exactly that by selecting Oregon State offensive tackle Taliese Fuaga at No. 14 overall to instantly slide into whatever role necessary to improve this unit upfront.

    They also traded up for Alabam cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry in the second round, which helped limit their draft assets the rest of the way. While the addition of Spencer Rattler isn’t helpful for this season, the pick of Northern Iowa DT Khristian Boyd is amongst the best value picks in the entire draft.

    The New York Giants were clearly looking to surround Daniel Jones with the talent to either elevate his game or prove, once and for all, that he isn’t long for the roster. Malik Nabers is the most explosive wide receiver he’s had while with the franchise, and Day 3 picks Theo Johnson and Tyrone Tracy Jr. bolster the offense in their own unique ways.

    The playmakers selected in the secondary on Day 2 should have an immediate and apparent impact, but it was somewhat surprising to see the Giants come away from the NFL’s annual selection event without adding any form of offensive line upgrades.

    Overall Grade: A-

    The New York Jets, like it or loathe it, will revolve around Aaron Rodgers in the short term, and their 2024 NFL Draft has a similar storyline. The franchise did a great job of protecting their current signal caller with the selection of Olu Fashanu – a move made better by dropping a spot in a trade with Minnesota.

    Malachi Corley was good value in the third as a dangerous RAC weapon for Rodgers in the short term and then for potential long term QB, Jordan Travis. Injury impacted his stock but Travis has the hallmarks of an NFL QB.

      Dylan McMahon, C, NC State
      Grade: B-

    Overall Grade: A-

    At the risk of sounding sycophantic, the 2024 NFL Draft was another masterclass from Howie Roseman. Looking at individual grades for each pick, the overall grade is likely closer to a B+ than the A- we’ve given it here.

    However, you have to take into account the sheer value of the first two picks that the Eagles made in Detroit. Quinyon Mitchell can be a lockdown corner in the league, and the value in landing Cooper DeJean with the 40th overall pick while moving around the board like Garry Kasparov was something spectacular.

    There were rookie contributors selected at multiple positions of need, and both sides of the ball got an influence of excellent talent.

    If you were looking to pick fault, the offensive line additions possibly weren’t of the caliber that fans might have hoped for as they look to a post-Jason Kelce era that could also be Lane Johnson-less in the not-too-distant future. That shouldn’t detract from the excellent work done by the franchise.

    Normally, when a team heavily focuses on just one position group for an entire draft, that could be a recipe for disaster. Yet, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ ability to land Washington offensive tackle Troy Fautanu, West Virginia center Zach Frazier, and South Dakota State guard Mason McCormick felt more like a masterpiece on how to revamp your offensive line instantly.

    The selection of NC State linebacker Payton Wilson further managed to solidify this group as an excellent overall class for the Steelers in 2024.

    Overall Grade: B-

    From a quick glance, it seems like the 49ers reached on all of their selections. But reaching is relevant, and each pick – sans Guerendo – added talent to positions of need. Pearsall received a C+ due to his position on the board compared to where he was selected, but if San Francisco deals Samuel or Aiyuk and the Florida WR balls out, then the grade is null and void.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers managed to hit a pair of home runs early in the draft by landing arguably the best interior offensive line prospect in the class — Duke’s Graham Barton — at No. 26 overall, but they followed it up by selecting Alabama edge rusher Chris Braswell when they fell in general manager Jason Licht’s lap at No. 57 overall.

    Washington WR Jalen McMillan at No. 92 overall was another solid pick, but missteps with Georgia safety Tykee Smith (89th overall) and Oregon running back Bucky Irving (125th overall) prevent this class from receiving an elite grade.

    The moves that Washington made to open the 2024 NFL Draft speaks to the sea change taking place within the program. It’s a whole new world from top to bottom of the front office, and they were aggressive and successful early on, taking franchise difference makers in Jayden Daniels, Johnny Newton, Mike Sainristil, and Ben Sinnott.

    The Commanders were running at an A- grade after Day 2, but some of their moves on Day 3 failed to live up to the excitement of the opening salvo. Jordan Magee is a solid, perhaps underrated get at linebacker, and Dominique Hampton could be a playmaker at the heart of the secondary.
