Houston Texans: C-
Round 3: Justin Reid, S, Stanford
Round 3: Martinas Rankin, C, Mississippi St.
Round 3: Jordan Akins, TE, UCF
Round 4: Keke Coutee, WR, Texas Tech
Round 6: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
Round 6: Jordan Thomas, TE, Mississippi St.
Round 6: Peter Kalambayi, LB, Stanford
Round 7: Jermaine Kelly, CB, San Jose St.
Houston made a healthy eight selections in this Draft. The problem is none of them are that great. Reid will certainly help a thin secondary, but not having any high picks really hurt. The good news is they gave up those picks for Deshaun Watson, who is pretty good, and definitely worth the trade.
Indianapolis Colts: B+
Round 1: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame
Round 2: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State
Round 2: Braden Smith, G, Auburn
Round 2: Kemoko Turay, DE, Rutgers
Round 2: Tyquan Lewis, DL, Ohio State
Round 4: Nyheim Hines, RB, N.C. State
Round 5: Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa
Round 5: Jordan Wilkins, RB, Mississippi
Round 6: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson
Round 7: Matthew Adams, LB, Houston
Round 7: Zaire Franklin, LB, Syracuse
This was somewhat of a boring draft for the Colts, but still a good one. They got Quenton Nelson, the best offensive lineman in the class, and used four(!) second round picks to add another guard and some defensive help. Trading back from No. 3 paid off with a good haul of future assets.
Jacksonville Jaguars: C+
Round 1: Taven Bryan, DT, Florida
Round 2: DJ Chark, WR, LSU
Round 3: Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama
Round 4: Will Richardson, T, N.C. State
Round 6: Tanner Lee, QB, Nebraska
Round 7: Leon Jacobs, LB, Wisconsin
Round 7: Logan Cooke, P, Mississippi St.
Bryan certainly has value at No. 29, but Jacksonville has no real issues on the defensive line. Additionally, both their starting safeties are signed through 2020. Chark was their best pick, because they lack wide receivers. My question is why not take a better one in the first?
Tennessee Titans: B
Round 1: Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama
Round 2: Harold Landry, LB, Boston College
Round 5: Dane Cruikshank, S, Arizona
Round 6: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
Realistically, the Titans should get a C for this Draft. I’m not sure about trading up for Evans, but he was certainly a good pick. Him and Landy are really what convinced me to bump them up half a letter. Expect good things from those two.
