Best/Worse Value

Recommended Posts

So before the season begins and we are proven right or wrong, let's weigh in on best and worst picks for each team. Two simple things to consider: how good is the prospect and where were they picked? In other words, this exercise isn't designed to identify the best and worst players from each team's draft class, but rather the best and worst values, as you see it. Picking a guy as the best value doesn't necessarily mean you think he'll make the biggest NFL impact, and vice versa for the worst value pick. And I understand that some of us may love (probably ours) or hate (probably our division rivals) every pick out of a given group... tough. Pick one for each category. You can factor need if you want, but I'm not going to.

:Ravens:

 

Best- Mike Campanaro, WR, WF: I can see Campanaro developing into a top end slot receiver. He is extremely effective against zone coverage, demonstrating great understanding of how to find the open window. Lots of good picks by the Ravens this year, but this guy at #218 is especially impressive.

 

Worst- Crockett Gillmore, TE, CSU: I really like Gillmore as a two way TE prospect, but he isn't dangerous enough in the passing game to justify this pick. I'm guessing he becomes a blocking specialist, and that can be had for a lot less than the 99th pick.

:Bengals:

 

Best- Darqueze Dennard, CB, MSU: Pre-draft, I was pretty vocal that I thought Dennard would be the best CB in this draft class if he's allowed to play press man coverage. Assuming that will be the case, 24th overall is good value.

 

Worst- Will Clarke, DE, WVU: I actually like Clarke as a developmental guy, but this was a hard group to pick a bad value from. I'm going with the former Mountaineer because he's not a super exciting athlete and was taken 88th.

 

:Browns:

 

Best- Joel Bitonio, OL, Nevada: Based on athleticism, versatility, and on-tape production, I thought Bitonio was a first round prospect and would not have been angry if San Diego took him at #25. So I love him for Cleveland at #35.

 

Worst- Justin Gilbert, CB, Ok. State: I get why Gilbert went 8th, namely that he's big and athletic and plays corner. That said, I thought he was maybe the 5th best corner in this class on the field (tentative, sloppy) so I laughed at him going that high.

 

:Steelers:

 

Best- Stephon Tuitt, DE, ND: I was pretty down on Tuitt entering the draft, but I was unaware that he had been playing hurt in 2013. Fully healthy, he was a great pick up at pick #46.

 

Worst- Dri Archer, RB, Kent State: I am not overly fond of these OW/gadget type players. I question whether the Steelers will find enough ways to use Archer on offense to justify the 97th pick.

 

:Bears:

 

Best- Will Sutton, DT, ASU: If not for weight issues that limited his explosiveness, Sutton would have been in the conversation with Donald and Easley for the first round. #82 is a great spot to take a guy like that (could be their defensive version of Jeffery).

 

Worst- Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU: I was really confused by Ego going so high. He didn't look good enough on tape to justify the 50th overall selection, and he's not a special athlete. They must have really liked him in interviews.

 

:Lions:

 

Best- Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton: Reid is an explosive upfield penetrator with top notch athleticism, who has also flashed some power at the POA. Great, great value at pick #158.

 

Worst- Eric Ebron, TE, UNC: Ebron's hands were unreliable in college, and the athletic comparisons to Vernon Davis were too generous. I didn't see the top 10 value with him at all, and actually preferred Jace Amaro as a pass catcher.

 

:Packers:

 

Best- Jared Abbrederis, WR, WIS: Plus route runner with great hands who can help in a variety of roles. Clearly fell due to alleged concussions, and could pay off huge for a 5th round pick if he sticks on the field.

 

Worst- Khyri Thornton, DT, S. Miss: I like Thornton and understand the pick, but I'll pick this out as the worst value in a group where none of the pick struck me as being bad. He maybe has a little too much development ahead of him to warrant the 85th pick.

 

:Vikings:

 

Best- Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: I honestly believe that GM's are going to kick themselves for passing on Bridgewater over silly reasons (like a bad pro day when the kid had stellar tape). Getting a franchise QB at #32 is fantastic.

 

Worst- Jerick McKinnon, RB, Ga. Southern: I understand that McKinnon is a really impressive athlete, but #96 was too early for an FCS player who is also switching positions.

:Texans:

 

Best- Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, UCLA: I didn't see much of a gap between XSF and former 7th overall pick Jonathan Cooper. So landing him at #33 has to feel like a great get in Houston. Terrific athlete with great tape.

 

Worst- Tom Savage, QB, Pitt: Savage's hype pre-draft seemed manufactured. I don't hate him in the 4th, but it's the value that I like the least out of their total haul, especially when you consider that a better prospect in Mettenberger went a couple rounds later.

 

:Colts:

 

Best- Donte Moncrief, WR, MISS: Moncrief has a lot of areas of his game that need polishing, but the size/athleticism combo is rare and getting him at #90 is pretty solid value.

 

Worst- Jack Mewhort, OT, OSU: Not many picks to choose from here, so I'll go with Mewhort at #59. That's a little high, IMO, to take a slot footed OT who may well need to play guard (and I'm not sure he has the skillset to be great in that regard).

 

:jags:

 

Best- Telvin Smith, LB, FSU: Smith's tape belies his size. I love that he landed in Gus Bradley's offense, and I love that they get him at #144. I think Jax will find a way to protect him so he can run free and make plays.

 

Worst- Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma: I was never overly fond of Colvin; I thought he belonged in the 4th round before his injury. So taking him there post-knee seemed like bad value to me.

 

:Titans:

 

Best- Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU: I thought Mett had a chance to go #33 to the Texans based on talent and fit, so I obviously think the value is amazing at #178. If it really was mostly the injury and drug test that dropped him, then good on Tennessee.

 

Worst- Bishop Sankey, RB, UW: I was not big on Sankey before the draft, and thought the Titans left some better RB talents on the board when they took him at #54.

 

:Falcons:

 

Best- Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, MINN: Hageman is the type of huge athlete that you generally see going in the top ~20 picks when a draft class isn't as rich as this one was. He's raw, but landing him at #37 was great value.

 

Worst- Prince Shembo, LB, ND: Taking Shembo this high was kind of confusing for me. He isn't all that effective as a pass rusher, and neither does he profile as a 3 down player inside. Felt like a reach for 3-4 personnel.

 

:panthers:

 

Best- Kony Ealy, DE, MIZZ: I love Ealy's potential as a long, powerful, flexible athlete on the edge. I was sold on him pre-draft as a first round talent, so I thought it was a steal nabbing him at #60.

 

Worst- Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU: One of my least favorite prospects entering the draft. Suspect hands and doesn't create much separation. One of my picks to bust, and not worth the #28 pick in my opinion.

 

:Saints:

 

Best- Brandin Cooks, WR, Or. State: Cooks was my 3rd favorite WR prospect in this class after Watkins and Evans. Getting him at #20 after OBJR went #12 was pretty solid value.

 

Worst- Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, NEB: I understand the size, but taking a 4.61 CB who still isn't very good at playing defense at #58 was way too early in my opinion.

 

:Bucs:

 

Best- Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming: Herron’s speed and quickness are undeniable. I think he’ll be a really good slot receiver in good time. To land him at #185 is great value.

 

Worst- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, UW: From a talent standpoint, I get the pick. But ASJ has a lot of other issues that are well-documented so I didn’t understand taking him at #38 with Amaro and Niklas on the board.

:Bills:

 

Best- Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor: I am by no means a big fan of Richardson's, but there is hope that he will be more effective after losing some weight. I wasn't a huge fan of the Bills draft class in general, but I'll nod to this guy at #153.

 

Worst- Preston Brown, LB, Louisville: Pick #73 is simply too high to be taking a 2 down linebacker, which is what I think Brown should be. They may try to force him into a 3 down role, but I don't think he'll be effective that way.

 

:dolphins:

 

Best- Arthur Lynch, TE, UGA: Murray's absence in 2013 hurt Lynch's ability to demonstrate his receiving ability, but I think he's a legitimate two way threat who could potentially start in time. Great value at #155.

 

Worst- Ja'Wuan James, OT, TENN: This was an obvious need pick, and I think it's clear that they passed over better players to land their offensive lineman. I don't blame them, and I think that James can be a fine RT in time, but it isn't good value.

 

:patriots:

 

Best- Jon Halapio, G, FLA: Halapio is a nasty interior blocker who fell due to the poor tape that was precipitated by playing through injury in 2013. Assuming he recovers, I think the Pats got a good starter at #179.

 

Worst- Bryan Stork, C, FSU: I don't hate any of the Pats pick, but taking a pedestrian center prospect high in the 4th round was my least favorite.

 

:Jets:

 

Best- Jace Amaro, TE, TTU: Amaro isn’t as fast as Ebron, but I think he has a better receiver’s skillset. And while he wasn’t asked to block much at Texas Tech, I think he has the power and disposition to do so. Good pick at #49.

 

Worst- Dexter McDougle, CB, Maryland: McDougle can burn, but he has a long way to go as an actual cover corner. I didn’t get the pick at the time, with a guy like Gaines on the board.

 

:Cowboys:

 

Best- Ben Gardner, DE, STAN: Gardner is an underrated athlete with great production in college and understands how to play the game from multiple positions. That's a steal at #231.

 

Worst- Anthony Hitchens, LB, Iowa: Hitchen's athleticism doesn't marry well with his skillset as a WOLB. He looked like an NFL backup and ST player in college, so I really don't get a 4th round pick.

 

:Giants:

 

Best- Weston Richburg, C, CSU: I don't love any of the Giants picks from a value perspective. That said, I'll go with Richburg here. He's probably the best center in the draft in terms of understanding and playing the position. So #43 is pretty solid.

 

Worst- Jay Bromley, DT, SYR: This is the only pick that I really didn't like for the Giants. He's got some interesting penetrating skills, but he's definitely a developmental guy, so #74 was too early.

 

:Eagles:

 

Best- Taylor Hart, DE, Oregon: Hart fell off the map a little at the end of the season after hurting his foot, but he is a great 34DE prospect that I can see starting down the road. Great get at #141.

 

Worst- Marcus Smith, OLB, Louisville: Smith profiles well for the 34OLB position in a lot of ways, but I have this against him: he’s stiff and doesn’t bend well. I see that as being a big issue for a guy who is primarily a pass rusher. Didn’t think he was worth a first round pick.

 

:Redskins:

 

Best- Morgan Moses, OT, UVA: Moses isn’t the greatest athlete or run blocker, but he’s got outstanding length and projects as a really reliable pass protector on either side. That’s a great pick up at #66.

 

Worst- Spencer Long, G, Nebraska: I thought the 3rd round was about right for Long before he missed all of 2013 with an injury. Taking him at #78 afterwards seemed unnecessary and risky.

:Broncos:

 

Best- Cody Latimer, WR, IND: There were five receivers who I consider to be lesser prospects that this Hoosier and still went ahead of his slot at #56. I think he provided terrific value at that position and will outplay a few of the guys who went ahead of him.

 

Worst- Michael Schofield, OT, UM: I was surprised that the Broncos spent a 3rd round selection on a guy who I don't think a) fits their approach on the OL, and b) struggles with edge speed.

 

:Chiefs:

 

Best- Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice: I was surprised to see a big athlete like Gaines slip to #87 for the Chiefs. He's obviously got a lot of work to do at the next level, but could be a really good starter in time.

 

Worst- De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon: I am admittedly not a fan of these OW types that the Ducks seem to produce annually. I don't see much NFL utility for Thomas, especially not as a runner. Bad value at #124.

 

:Raiders:

 

Best- Gabe Jackson, G, Miss. State: The Raiders had a lot of good value picks for me to choose from, but I’ll go with Jackson here. He’s a really well-rounded lineman who will likely start right away. Great value at #81.

 

Worst- Derek Carr, QB, Fr. State: I really don’t have a huge problem with the value at #36, but the Raiders had really good picks across the board so I’m going with this one as the worst. Carr struggled under pressure in college, which is a huge no-no for me.

 

:Chargers:

 

Best- Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, GTU: Seeing as how I had Attaochu pegged as a 1st round talent who I wouldn’t mind at #25, I was thrilled to get him via trade up at #50. Great value.

 

Worst- Chris Watt, G, ND: I have confidence that our OL coaching staff knows what they’re looking for, but I can’t say I was blown away by the value of Watt at #89.

 

:Cardinals:

 

Best- Kareem Martin, DE, UNC: The former Tarheel might not have lived up to his potential in college (what else is new at UNC?), but to get a 6'6" 272 lb DE with top shelf athelticism at pick #84 is pretty tough to ignore.

 

Worst- Deone Bucannon, S, WSU: It's not that I think Bucannon is bound to bust or anything, but I do project his role in the NFL as a rather pedestrian run specialist. That's not a skill set worth the 27th pick.

 

:49ers:

 

Best- Carlos Hyde, RB, OSU: I love Carlos Hyde. He was the one RB I thought deserved to be in the first round conversation. So when the Niners got him at #57, I thought it was an incredible pick.

 

Worst- Jimmie Ward, DB, NIU: I really like Ward and the pick. But the 49ers draft was so good, that I have to go with this pick as the one that I like the least, mostly because Ward’s most natural position seems to be as a slot corner in sub packages.

 

:Seahawks:

 

Best- Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, BC: KPL is a seek and destroy LB who can absolutely fly. I love the fit in the Seattle defense and the value at # 132 was great.

 

Worst- Justin Britt, OT, MIZZ: Seahawk OL picks tend to mystify, but I’m not giving them the benefit of the doubt simply because more often than not they haven’t really panned out. Britt’s value, to me, was nowhere near the 64th pick.

 

:Rams:

 

Best- Aaron Donald, DT, PITT: Hard to say someone was a steal when you take them #13 overall, but I thought Donald deserved to go in the top 5 so I have to mention the value in getting him 8 spots later (which, in the top 16 is a much bigger deal than 8 slots in the 5th round).

 

Worst- Greg Robinson, OL, AU: Similarly to the 49ers, there aren’t any picks here that I don’t like. But if I’m picking one out to be the worst, I’ll go with Robinson at #2 mostly because he’s going to be a guard out of the gate and Jake Matthews was there.

How anyone at all had Mettenberger going any higher than the 5th is beyond me. He was garbage before his senior year, and wasn't exactly all-world then either.

I don't know about ASJ being the worst value pick for the Bucs. He was may favorite TE, other than Ebron and I believe he can a pretty dynamic TE in the NFL. Are his off the field issues really that bad? All I knew of was a DUI, but maybe I'm missing something? The only other TE I would have considered taking over him is Amaro. Definitely not Niklas because I don't think at best he'll be a mediocre receiver. Nothing wrong with that, but I would not want to take a guy like that at the top of the 2nd round.

 

I think I would put Charles Sims for the worst value because we took him in the 3rd round and already have a pretty loaded backfield.

 

Herron was definitely the pick for best value and nailed that.

 

Great job on this overall.

The Bucs didn't have anything that really stood out to me, so I went with ASJ because it was a fairly high pick and I prefer Amaro. I can see going with Sims though. For some teams, you had to come down to the pick you liked the least out of a whole class that you liked in general.

I don't see ASJ being that effective between the 20s myself. So I don't see him being dynamic. Amazing hands though and a legit red zone threat.

 

Great job btw Kemp, scary how similar we view a lot of the prospects.

Denver Broncos:
Worst: 31. Bradley Roby, CB Ohio State - Day 2 to 3 pick imo.

AFC South:
Houston Texans:
Best: 83. Louis Nix III, DT Notre Dame - Great pick in the 3rd, had him as an early second talent.

Worst: 65. C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE Iowa - Not really a bad pick, just thought he could be had later. Better talent was available, and IDT he's anything special.

Jacksonville Jaguars:
Worst: 39. Marqise Lee, WR USC - No comments needed. Better receivers available.
Best: 159. Chris Smith, DE/OLB Arkansas - Love his potential. Great pick imo.

Worst: 166. Jonathan Newsome, DE Ball State - Better ends available, 7th rd talent imo.

AFC North:
Pittsburgh Steelers:

Worst: 118. Martavis Bryant, WR Clemson - Should of went in the back end of the draft imo.
Best: 173. Wesley Johnson, OT Vanderbilt - I think he can develop into a very good lineman. I like him more as a center, but it looks like the Steelers got him to play tackle.

Baltimore Ravens:
Best: 48. Timmy Jernigan, DT Florida State - I actually think this was perfectly where he was supposed to go, unllike with others that were selected a little higher then I liked.
Worst: 99. Crockett Gillmore, TE Colorado State - Not overly special, better players available imo.

Cincinnati Bengals:
Best: 24. Darqueze Dennard, CB Michigan State - Wasn't a fan of a lot of picks by the Bengals. Dennard went off perfectly where I thought he should go.
Worst: 55. Jeremy Hill, RB LSU - Meh, not a second round talent imo.

Worst: 8. Justin Gilbert, CB Oklahoma State - Bad tape, always playing catch up. I'll pass... But he's got all the talent in the world.

AFC East:
Buffalo Bills:

Worst: 4. Sammy Watkins, WR Clemson - They traded up for the second best receiver in the draft while giving up a 1st next year. Nope nope nope.
Best: 153. Cyril Richardson, OG Baylor - Probably a day one starter.

Worst: 105. Bryan Stork, C Florida State - There were better players available.
Best: 130. James White, RB Wisconsin - Good change of pace back.

New York Jets:
Best: 49. Jace Amaro, TE Texas Tech - Drafted right around where I think he should of went.
Worst: 80. Dex McDougle, CB Maryland, 115. Shaq Evans, WR UCLA - Both were equally bad value imo.

Miami Dolphins:
Worst: 19. Ja'Wuan James, OT Tennessee - Way better options, even as far as OT is concerned.
Best: 63. Jarvis Landry, WR LSU - Went right around where I thought he should.

NFC West:
St. Louis Rams:

Best: 41. Lamarcus Joyner, DB Florida State - Easy choice for me. Was a top 20 talent.
Worst: 110. Maurice Alexander, S Utah State- Not really a bad pick, but I thought there was better talent available.

Arizona Cardinals:
Worst: 27. Deone Bucannon, S Washington State - Way too high. No range, limited role.
Best: 84. Kareem Martin, DE UNC - Potential to be the best DE in the class, first round talent imo.

Seattle Seahawks:
Best: 45. Paul Richardson, WR Colorado - Really starting to warm up to the pick. Pretty good.
Worst: 108. Cassius Marsh, DE UCLA - Too high imo.

San Francisco 49ers:
Worst: 106. Bruce Ellington, WR South Carolina - Don't see much potential in him.
Best: 150. Aaron Lynch, DE South Florida - A lot of potential. Could be the best pass rusher

NFC South:
Atlanta Falcons:

Best: 37. Ra'Shede Hageman, DT Minnesota - Massive star/bust potential. Could be one of the best players in this year's draft.
Worst: 68. Dez Southward, S Wisconsin - There were better players available imo.

New Orleans Saints:
Best: 58. Stan Jean-Baptiste, CB Nebraska - He went right about where I think he should of gone.
Worst: 126. Khairi Fortt, OLB California - Better options available imo.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Worst: 69. Charles Sims, RB West Virginia - Better options at HB imo.
Best: 185. Robert Herron, WR Wyoming - Great option for where he was taken.

Carolina Panthers:
Best: 60. Kony Ealy, DE Missouri - Ealy won't be needed to be a pass rush specialist playing in Carolina, so he'll fit right in.
Worst: 92. Trai Turner, OG LSU - Not a fan of Turner at all. Really sloppy, questionable technique.

NFC North:
Minnesota Vikings:

Worst: 9. Anthony Barr, OLB UCLA - I get the pick because of athleticism, etc, but I don't see him being as good as he can be. And I wouldn't of touched him that early.
Best: 32. Teddy Bridgewater, QB Louisville - Value of the draft imo.

Green Bay Packers:
Best: 53. Davante Adams, WR Fresno State - First round talent imo.
Worst: 85. Khyri Thornton, DT Southern Miss - Jones was/is better, and available.

Detroit Lions:
Worst: 136. Larry Webster, DE Bloomsburg - He had no business going as high as he did imo. I loved the Lions' draft, but that pick killed me.
Best: 158. Caraun Reid, DT Princeton - Very quick, great interior pass rusher imo.

Chicago Bears:
Best: Kyle Fuller, CB Virginia Tech - Not a great pick, but he went right around the area I figured he'd go. Fuller was the second best corner imo.
Worst: 131. Brock Vereen, S Minnesota : Went too high imo. Saw him play a lot, and he was very active, but never really impressed.

NFC East:
New York Giants:
Best:
43. Weston Richburg, C Colorado State - Everyone knows how high I was on him. Richburg is a top 10 talent imo.
Worst: 74. Jay Bromley, DT Syracuse - There were better DTs available.

Philadelphia Eagles:
Worst
: 86. Josh Huff, WR Oregon - Way too high. Limited route tree, Not as fast as he is quick, kinda body catcher. No thanks...
Best: 162. Ed Reynolds, S Stanford - Type of safety that I love. He's got range, size, and pretty athletic. Not really a part of the Matthews fan club.

Dallas Cowboys:
Worst:
34. Demarcus Lawrence, OLB Boise State - REACH!
Best: 248. Ahmad Dixon, S Baylor - Kinda where I think a guy like him goes. Doesn't have great range, but I think he's an ideal in the box safety.

Washington Redskins:
Best: 47. Trent Murphy, OLB/DE Stanford - A first round prospect imo. Could be a day one starter if given the opportunity.
Worst: 78. Spencer Long, OG Nebraska - Not much of an athlete. Way too sluggish for my liking. Don't really think he fits well.

I'd be interested to hear how your had Attaochu as a 3rd round guy.

 

31.5 career sacks, largely from a first step that's elite when he's right. 6'3" 252 and has a 1.55 10 yd, plus a 37.5" vert. 33" inch arms.

 

Clearly needs to refine his approach and use his hands better, but all the tools of a great pass rusher are there. The explosion is on par with almost anywhere in this class, and he's not stiff like a Marcus Smith.

Really? I thought he was stiff, not very, but enough to where it'd be a concern. I agree he's explosive, but I think it goes away when he starts to move laterally, not really a fan of his balance, and his ability to counter punches, etc.

 

He's got a lot of developing to do imo.

I wouldn't say flexibility is an asset per se, but it didn't look like it would hold him back. Not with his first step.

You don't think so? It wouldn't help with turning the corner?

 

Yes, it's necessary for turning the corner. But I mean to say is that I think Attaochu has enough flexibility to do so. It's not elite or anything, but I don't think it's below average. I would describe it as adequate. And I think a player with his kind of explosiveness and adequate flexibility can be a really good pass rusher in this league.

I agree on Su'a Filo but Savage is well, meh.

4th rounder so no biggie if he is a no goer.

Dude throws a frozen rope and is reportedly very teachable and working his tail off.

Preseason could see him throw a few around and that will be interesting to watch.

I'm so stoked to see Hageman. He could be a potential stud in the future. He's got the sky for his ceiling.

You got a good one there Rain Man - I was hoping Texans would take him, but Xavier Su'a Filo is looking awesome at training camp even though he is way behind so I'm happy with that.
