Grades:

Sigmund Bloom: B+

The trade up for Newton was a huge win, but I can’t gush too much about it, because it was completely unrealistic. Likewise on the trade down with Seattle, which seems to make little sense for the Seahawks. Don’t like the Cannon pick, a massive finesse guy (he gets in the way and is hard to move, but is no drive blocker – I wish him a speedy recovery from lymphoma) who does little to plug the hole at center or right guard. Love the addition of Gates speed to the WR corps (worth the trade up for sure), Green as a quality two-way TE, and White as a hard-nosed backup RB. Jackson is likely just quality depth and also doesn’t plug any holes on the O-line. Overall, lots of flash at the offensive skill positions, but missing the immediate and long-term offensive line help and developmental pick on the defensive line necessary to be a full success. Miami did possibly the best job of taking advantage of the loose trading and widely varying ideas about pick value.
