Draft Day One Winners and Losers thumb_side_06.png

The Raiders and Dolphins were a mixed bag.  Henry Ruggs should be a perfect fit for the Raiders offense but Damon Arnette at 19?  He was a late second round prospect.  The Raiders reached for Kolton Miller in 2018 and he's been terrible.  Ditto for Clelin Ferrell at 4th overall last year. The Dolphins stood firm at 5 and got their man in Tua, but then reached for Austin Jackson at 19.  Jackson is a similar prospect to Kolton Miller who looks good but isn't particularly good at blocking.  The Eagles doinked it at 21 passing on Justin Jefferson for Jalen Reagor.  We had higher grades on 5 receivers who will be taken after Reagor.  Other winners:  The Falcons for not trading up and taking AJ. Terrell at 16.  We like the Jaguars two first round selections in C.J. Henderson and K'lavon Chaisson.  If Aaron Rodgers is willing to help Jordan Love for a few years, that's a perfect situation for a developmental prospect.  The 49ers trading up and taking Brandon Aiyuk?  Yuk!

Jimmy Garoppolo-QB, 49ers thumb_up_04.png
John Lynch is probably regretting that he let it slip that he considered making a run at Tom Bradar.  They have one of the highest paid tossers in the NFL who just took the Niners to the Super Bowl.  Lynch is probably issuing some mea culpas.
Gronk- TE, Buccaneers thumb_side_06.png
The Patriots traded Gronk for a 4th round pick and few months ago traded a second round pick to the Falcons for the privilege of retaining the services of Mohammed Sanu.  Bwahhh.
