Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.
35. DET - D'Andre Swift RB1 ... F

Instead of taking an RB (RB1, 63rd) this high, why not use the one you have & draft OL to help him run better....

IDK, just a thought.

F bomb for the #Lions.
36. NYG - Xavier McKinney S1 ... A+

Phenomenal value here for the #Giants. My 17th overall player, this is a slam dunk & the X Factor is a great one.
37. NE - Kyle Dugger S3 ... A

WOW. #Patriots just got my 38th overall player & a freak athlete.

As a #Bills fan, this one terrifies me.
38. CAR - Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE4 ... B+

Great value, huge upside EDGE rusher. Physcially, it's all there. Slight knock just bc my EDGE2, AJE 15th overall, is still available.

Big time upgrades to the DL for the #Panthers.
39. MIA - Robert Hunt iOL4 ... B

Big fan of this pick. Doesn't have the value (59th overall) to get an A grade, but Hunt helps keep Tua upright at either iOL or OT (which he played at Louisiana). Back on the right track, #Dolphins.
40. HOU - Ross Blacklock iDL7 ... D

Not a big fan of this.

*I would've traded back if I'm the #Texans
*If I stayed put, there's a long list of better prospects than Blacklock (71st)...
*...even at his own position - he's iDL7, while iDLs 3-6 are still available.
My write-up:
41. IND - Jonathan Taylor RB2 ... F

Gimme a sec, still laughing.

What're these teams doing?

#Lions & #Colts waste early 2nds on RBs when they already have good, cheap RBs. It's a replaceable position & there's HUGE value still on the board.

C'mon man.

Taylor a beast tho.
42. JAX - Laviska Shenault WR4 ... A+

Congratulations #Jaguars #DUUUVAL - you got an absolute STUD.

#TheShenaultimateWeapon. WR4, 21st overall player. Enough said.😤
43. CHI - Cole Kmet TE4 ... F

Terrible start, #Bears.

Cole Kmet is my 93rd overall player and 4th ranked TE. Not a fan here. But at least it wasn't in the 1st, I guess?
44. CLE - Grant Delpit S2 ... A+

Back to back years of getting great, falling DBs in the 2nd. This will pay off. Delpit is really good. Well done, #Browns!
45. TB - Antoine Winfield Jr. S5 ... B+

Fine value for a solid prospect (47th), I'm a fan. #Buccaneers with another playmaker in the secondary. They're making a run at this thing.
46. DEN - KJ Hamler WR13 ... B

My 57th overall player, Hamler is built on speed. #Broncos are going IN for Drew Lock.

I'm giving this value a pass bc Edwards & Mims are redundant w/ Sutton. DEN's trying to surround their QB w/ speed.
47. ATL - Marlon Davidson iDL4 ... B

Good, versatile player at a fine value (49th). I have Jordan Elliott higher (iDL3, 34th), but I'm a fan of Davidson. He may not have great odds to become a star though.
48. SEA - Darrell Taylor EDGE11 ... D

The reach in the 1st on a non-need leads to a trade up & another reach in the 2nd -- Taylor is my 100th overall player.

Taylor has potential, but #Seattle should be getting a higher floor, higher upside player inside the Top 50.
49. PIT - Chase Claypool WR10 / TE1 ... A

I LOVE this pick. #Steelers land one of the most versatile players in the draft - he's my WR10, TE1 & 45th overall player. Freak straight line athlete w/ a lot of size - congrats 'Lers!
50. CHI - Jaylon Johnson CB4 ... A

Fantastic value (30th) here for the #Bears, who lacked a 1st round pick & wasted their earlier 2nd rounder. Much needed help in the secondary. JayJo can contribute right away.
51. DAL - Trevon Diggs CB5 ... B

Like this pick for the #Cowboys, who desperately needed a CB after going w/ WR1 in the 1st. Diggs, 37th overall & CB5, lasted way too long.

I wouldn't have passed on the amazing value of Kristian Fulton (CB3, 13th) but, alas...
passed on Fulton (CB3, 13th)
52. LAR - Cam Akers RB8 ... F


With the #Rams first selection, they go with an RB. They already took Darrell Henderson last year & *maybe* would've learned from the Gurley situation.

Akers is not in my Top 100.
53. PHI - JALEN HURTS QB3 ... UH ... A+

Stunned. The #Eagles are 1 of the last teams I expected to take my guy here, but an enormous value in my eyes. Hurts is my QB3 & 9th overall player.

Are they planning to convert him? Use him like Taysom Hill? Idk. Need to digest...
54. BUF - AJ EPENESA ... A+


#Bills got one of the best values in the #NFLDraft2020 after trading their 1st for Diggs. Epenesa is my 15th ranked EDGE.

Shocked he was there, but damn, this Defense is LEGIT. BUF is on the cusp...
15th ranked overall*, EDGE2.

Sorry, too excited to type😅
55. BAL - JK Dobbins ... F

What is happening. Why, #Ravens, Why?

My 83rd overall player & RB7, there are significantly better values on the board & better RBs too. Shame!
56. MIA - Raekwon Davis iDL8 ... D

This is another reach by the #Dolphins, but I have optimism for Davis.

He's my 94th overall player, so there's considerable risk to take him here & way better value to be had. Still, Miami addressing a ton of needs.
57. LAR - Van Jefferson WR UR ... F

Not ranked in my Top 100 or my Top 10 WRs. He's around WR17 in my expanded WR ranks. This is way too high in my opinion, but he's a been a trendy name on #DraftTwitter. No thank you.

Rams w/ double Fs.
58. MIN - Ezra Cleveland OT6 ... A+

Fantastic pick here for the #Vikings. Wow, what a value to find this athletic of a LT late in the 2nd. @thorku must be thrilled!

Huge fan of Ez's profile. He's more athletic than my OT1 last year, Andre Dillard.

This is a SLAM. DUNK.
59. NYJ - Denzel Mims WR7 ... A+

Great pick here by the #Jets. Mims is my 36th best player & WR7. The fact that Van Jefferson went before Mims here is wild. Huge value & makes me feel better about Becton in the 1st.
60. NE - Josh Uche EDGE UR ... D

I don't dislike Uche at all & he fell just outside my Top 100. He's versatile - something the #Patriots love. I just prefer many guys still available, incl. @ EDGE. Weaver 27th & Okwara 32nd are still there.

NE continues hammering DEF early.
61. TEN - Kristian Fulton CB3 ... A+

Wow. Took wayyyyyy too long but finally, Fulton finds his home. CB3 & 13th overall, this is INCREDIBLE value.

#Titans are absolutely loaded.

This mitigates some of the damage done by taking Isaiah Wilson at 1.29.
62. GB - AJ Dillon #TheBUS RB5 ... D

Whoa, didn't see this as a landing spot for one of my favs.

AJD, The #BeefedUpSaquon is a tank. Freak athlete.

He's also an RB (RB5, 81st) w/ a poor pass catching profile (none).

#Packers refusing to give Rodgers something to work with.
63. KC - Willie Gay Jr. LB5 ... B

Love this landing spot for Gay. #Chiefs get an ultra athletic LB w/ coverage ability. Gay is my 61st overall player.

If you removed the off-field concerns, we'd be looking at Devin White 2.0. He went 5th overall for reference...

Nicely done.
64. CAR - Jeremy Chinn S4 ... A+

Fantastic move to trade up here #Panthers - you got a great prospect.

Chinn, 39th overall & S4, is a huge value at the end of 2nd. Could become a true LB if CAR wants. He's just so athletic.

65. CIN - Logan Wilson LB10 ... D

Wilson landed outside my Top 100 but snuck in as LB10. I think he'd be a very solid Day 3 pick, but this is too early for me by the #Bengals, with superior LB prospects still available.
66. WAS - Antonio Gibson RB6 ... C

We're in 'OK' range for RBs...

What about RBs (82nd) that also play WR & have elite athletic traits? Yeah we're OK with that here #Redskins.

I would've taken a straight-up WR (say, Bryan Edwards?? WR8 43rd) but I really like Gibson's profile.
67. DET - Julian Okwara EDGE5 ... A

Big time value for the #Lions here. My 32nd overall player & EDGE5, they get a steal in the 3rd.

This will definitely help their Front 7 get better.

Doesn't hurt Okwara's older brother is also on DET...
68. NYG - Ashtyn Davis S6 ... B

Davis is my 48th overall player, so this is strong value.

However, the #Giants could've gone with DL or OL instead, w/ higher rated prospects, which hurts their grade a bit.

Still a solid selection, nabbing the rangey S in the 3rd.
69. SEA - Damien Lewis iOL6 ... C

Not a terrible pick here, but I have multiple interior OL rated higher than Lewis, 84th overall.

#Seahawks needed to address OL.
70. MIA - Brandon Jones S UR ... F

#Dolphins select another player I'm not high on as a Day 2 prospect. Jones didn't make the cut for my Top 10 Safeties either.
71. BAL - Justin Madubuike iDL6 ... B

Solid value here for the #Ravens again after their mishap in the 2nd (RB). Madubuike has a shot to be a force on the inside, coming in at 65th overall for me.
72. ARI - Josh Jones OT5 ... A+

The slide is OVER. My OT5 & 24th overall player, Jones didn't warrant a 3rd round selection. But god DAMN are the #Cardinals happy to get him here.

Starting w/ my #1 prospect @ 8th overall, ARI is making a strong early case my top Draft Class.
73. JAX - Davon Hamilton iDL UR ... F

I felt like I may have been too low on Hamilton, but he missed my iDL Top 10 and Top 100. This is a great landing spot for him as a prospect.

With that said, #Jaguars could've had Jordan Elliott, my iDL3 & 34th overall player.
74. NO - Zach Baun LB4 ... A

Huge value here for the #Saints.

Baun is my 46th overall prospect & LB4 - he lasted wayyy too long. Baun was also my 5th best prospect remaining.
75. DET - Jonah Jackson iOL ... B+

Jackson is a strong pick here for the #Lions.

My 60th overall player & iOL5, he'd be an 'A' if Netane Muti weren't still available. There's risk there though, so I'll give DET mostly a pass. Great pick to help the OL.
76. TB - Ke'Shawn Vaughn RB UR ... F

I was a fan of Vaughn earlier in his career. He's not a Day 2 prospect to me, though.

Good receiver, 4.5 speed, not bursty & already 23. There are better RBs to have picked, #Buccaneers.
77. DEN - Michael Ojemudia CB UR ... F

#Broncos had the chance to take 2 Front 7 guys I love, Weaver 27th & Elliott 34th.

I also love K'Von Wallace & L'Jarius Sneed, both S / slot CBs who could've helped replace Chris Harris Jr.

Would've gone another direction here.
78. ATL - Matt Hennessy iOL8 ... D

#Falcons got a solid iOL prospect who snuck into my Top 100. Hennessy is my iOL8, but my iOL2, Netane Muti is still available.
79. NYJ - Jabari Zuniga EDGE UR ... F

With multiple great EDGE prospects still available, the #Jets opt for a flashy upside pick in Zuniga. I left him outside my top 100.
80. LV - Lynn Bowden WR15 ... B

I love this pick for LV. #Raiders get a super shifty athlete with a lot of versatility. Bowden (74th, WR15) complements the field-stretching ability of 1st round pick Henry Ruggs to ignite this Offense.

Grade dips bc WR8 Edwards is available.
81. LV - Bryan Edwards WR8 ... A+

WELL. That didn't last long (^ re:pick 80).

Edwards. Is. A. Stud. Plain & simple.

Falls way too far. True WR1 ability here. What a WR trio the #Raiders land in the first 3 rounds.
82. DAL - Neville Gallimore iDL5 ... B+

#Cowboys continue a stellar draft, selecting my iDL5 & 64th overall player.

I'm a big fan of Gallimore's freakish athleticism & pass rush ability. This is a solid pick to fill in the DL.

Knocked a tad bc Elliott, iDL3 & 34th, still there
83. DEN - Lloyd Cushenberry iOL9 ... C

#Broncos add to the OL w/ an interesting prospect from LSU. Cushenberry is not ready to contribute right away, based on his huge drop off in 2019, but he could be a future starter in Denver.
84. LAR - Terrell Lewis EDGE7 ... A+

It's extremely rare to get such high-upside EDGE prospects this late. Obviously it comes w/ risk.

Lewis is a fat steal for the #Rams. He is my 51st overall player & was my 4th best available player. I LOVE this pick.
85. IND - Julian Blackmon S UR ... D

I had multiple Safeties available, 4 left in my Top 10. Not a fan here.
86. BUF - Zack Moss RB4 ... B

No bias here #Bills -- my RB4 & 78th overall player is a good value here at 86th, especially factoring in the trade back.

Moss is Kareem Hunt 2.0. I'm a big fan of his game.

I just hope he pans out enough to pass on the great value remaining...
87. NE - Anfernee Jennings EDGE10 ... C

I actually love this pick for the fit. Jennings is one of my favorite DEF sleepers, coming in at 97th overall. Leaving Weaver (27th) on the board hurts the grade, but I'm optimistic this pick will pan out for the #Patriots.
88. CLE - Jordan Elliott iDL3 ... A+

From a pure pick differential standpoint, this is the best value of the #NFLdraft I believe. UNREAL Value for the #Browns.

Elliott is my 34th overall player & iDL3. CLE's defense is so legit w/ young stars.

Lights. OUT.
89. MIN - Cameron Dantzler CB UR ... C

Dantzler just missed the cut for my Top 10 CBs & Top 100. He's a solid pick here, though there are guys I like more at CB & S.

Dantzler is long (6'2), thin & faster than his testing (4.64 40). Worth a shot at the end of the 3rd #Vikings
90. HOU - Jonathan Greenard EDGE UR ... D

#Texans needed help off the edge, but I have multiple Top 100 EDGE prospects still available, including 27th overall Curtis Weaver. Not a good value to me.
91. NE - Devin Asiasi TE8 ... D

Asiasi ended as TE8 for me & wasn't one of the last 10-20 out of my Top 100. I think he has a decent profile here & fits what the #Patriots want out of the position. Don't expect the next Gronk or anything, but a solid contributor. Just not my fav
92. BAL - Devin Duvernay WR14 ... A

GREAT pick here near the end of the 3rd for the #Ravens. Another excellent value, DD is my WR14 & 73rd overall prospect. Solid slot weapon w/ 4.39 wheels. This is a great fit for BAL, trying to add more speed & weapons for Lamar.

93. TEN - Darrynton Evans RB UR ... D

Just outside my Top 10 RBs, I like Evans & his 4.41 wheels. He has a solid profile, but I don't like the pick here.

#Titans should've continued to go after value & trenches, not *another* RB.

All the same, he'll hit some homers.
94. GB - Josiah Deguara TE UR ... F

I want to give the #Packers a win, but this ain't it.

Significantly better TE prospects still available:

70th Adam Trautman TE2
92nd Hunter Bryant TE3
98th Albert Okwuegbunam TE5

Big time reach.
95. DEN - McTelvin Agim iDL9 ... C

I like this pick. Just behind Raekwon Davis to me, Agim is a very intriguing prospect. I wanted to fit him into my Top 100 (maybe I should've made a Top 150? Next year...) but I'm still giving the #Broncos credit here for a solid pick.
96. KC - Lucas Niang OT UR ... C

Solid pick here by KC to get a developmental OT to keep Mahomes upright. I'm a fan.

There's a big gap between my OT10, Bartch 68th overall, & where Niang roughly falls outside my Top 100. That drop in value hurts the grade.
97. CLE - Jacob Phillips LB UR ... F

Overdrafted LSU athlete, Phillips has the physical profile to play but is baaad in coverage. #Browns had been killing it. I guess everybody makes mistakes.
98. BAL - Malik Harrison LB9 ... C

A tier below my LBs 7 & 8, Harrison is a solid pick & I really like the landing spot. Paired w/ Patrick Queen, coverage monster, Harrison is a nice complement.
99. NYG - Matt Peart OT7 ... A+

Anotha one #Giants - Peart is a perfect pick here. My 54th overall player & OT7, his athletic profile is great, minus some agility concerns. His length is STUPID - 99th percentile arm length - that's just special.

This is a HUGE value.
100. LV - Tanner Muse LB6 ... A+

I love this fit & I know Jon Gruden does too.

Muse has rare speed as a coverage-specialist LB prospect. He's a discount Dugger-Chinn type that I think is being wayyy undervalued.

Another great get here #Raiders.
101. NE - Dalton Keene TE UR ... F

Another... TE.... He's an athlete, but not as good as TE2 Trautman (70th) or TE5 Albert Okwuegbunam (98th).

And not even in my Top 10 of TEs. That's a weak pick.
102. PIT - Alex Highsmith EDGE UR ... F

I don't hate this pick, bc Highsmith is an interesting small school prospect that I've considered, but he is not ready to contribute right away & there are competition concerns.

Much better EDGE prospects still available.
103. PHI - Davion Taylor LB UR ... F

This is a pure athleticism pick. Not a fan.

There are better LBs, that can actually contribute as rookies, still available.
104. LAR - Terrell Burgess S8 ... B

Another great value here for the #Rams on Defense, Burgess is my 77th overall prospect & S8.

Burgess is super interesting, but has literally 1st percentile arm length. Not required, but that is a concern.
105. NO - Adam Trautman TE2 ... A+

In a very weak class that has a TE1 (Claypool) that may not play TE, Trautman really stood out to me.

I absolutely love this pick for the #Saints. Fantastic value at the end of Day 2, Trautman has a complete TE profile, other than elite speed.
106. BAL - Tyre Phillips OT/iOL UR ... F

Phillips' terrible agility & pass-pro skill against decent EDGE play will likely mandate a move inside. Even so, I'm not optimistic. Bad end to Day 2.

My iOL2 #NeTankMuti is still available. 40th overall. Unreal.
