Your Opinion: Winner And Loser Of This Years Firsts

In your opinion, who had the best and worst first round picks this year?

I am going to say New England had the best, getting two versatile defensive guys that fit their scheme VERY well and adding some punch to their last ranked defense.

I would say Miami had the worst. They made a reach that Stretch Armstrong would have been jealous of, picking up Tannenehill in their spot. Tannenhill does not remind me of Blaine Gabbert, but I think his story will be similar. He picked up tons of momentum with his draft stock towards draft day and was reached for by a quarterback hungry team. Now he is a quarterback that normally would have been drafted in the second or third and is now the projected starter for an awful team.

The rams. Even tho I don't like brockers, it's a good pick for them and they are taking up on the picks. How many frigginh picks do they have in the second and third now. My god.

Rams = huge losers

They thought they were gonna land Cox, Blackmon or Floyd and failed miserably

I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty impressed with the Bengals getting Kirkpatrick & Zeitler while managing a trade

Steelers snagging DeCastro at 24 makes them my biggest winner

Panthers with the #9 pick get the best LB in the draft.

That ain't too shabby.

Panthers were only team to draft a 4-3 LB in the first round.
Minimal risk, Minimal Impact.

Yeah I don't and we happen to disagree

They'll probably get Jeffery or Hill today

Nice job at being all snarky though

Not sure an elite LB who can play all three spots should be considered minimal impact in regards to our LB core last year.

Well, I think Rams were huge winners if they went into this draft thinking DT at #6 if they couldn't trade down. Brockers was my favorite of the bunch. The Patriots bucked both their drafting trends by trading UP and making GOOD picks, in my opinion. The Steelers stayed put and took a phenomenal guy and value for where they got him. Thought the Vikings did a good job, still took the guy they needed and were able to add some late round picks. Not sure about the trade up for Harrison Smith, but they didn't give up much for the move. The Chargers stayed put and got exactly the guy they needed. Ditto for the Lions and Packers.

I think the biggest losers were the 49ers. Maybe they know something about that kid everyone else doesn't, but surely they had to think they could have gotten him in the 2nd. Ditto with the Seahawks. Surely they could have gotten him in the 2nd. I think the Bengals whiffed with their second pick. Traded themselves out of taking Decastro and ended up taking a G anyway and only picked up what, a 3rd? Not a good trade in my opinion. Not saying Zeitler is a bust, but whoever they get in the 3rd with that pick will probably not make up the difference between Zeitler and Decastro. They gambled, they lost. The Bears also, I don't think that McClellin kid was the better pick over Chandler Jones.

Yeah they will probably get hill or Alshon, then mayve one of the best DTs available to put with brockers. And a LB or whoever they want like a zach brown. That's four quality starters in 2 rounds. Sounds like a win win to me. Sorry for being snarky

Makes sense...I just don't see Brockers as an instant impact type which I could easily be wrong with. no worries mate

They need to get Bradford weapons bottom line
