NFL Draft Summary: 5 Teams who did Good & 5 that did Bad

The 2022 NFL Draft is now at a close. Some teams did absolutely phenomenal and others did absolutely horrendous. Let’s take a look at 5 teams who did well and 5 who did not.

Good: Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles were able to find addition to their DT depth with Jordan Davis, who will also replace franchise star Fletcher Cox when he finally retires of has a far decline. They were also able to obtain star WR A.J. Brown from the Titans in exchange for their other first round pick and later picks (which is a bag of peanuts for him). The Eagles were also able to get an absolute steal with LB Nakobe Dean in the third round, as he was projected to be a first round pick going into the draft. The Eagles made sound picks through the rest of the draft as well and should expect to have success with their 2022 draft class.

Bad: Jacksonville Jaguars

No offense to Travon Walker, but he should not have been the number 1 pick in the draft. The Jaguars should not have even picked someone from his DE position, but since they did, Walker was not even the best player at that position, it was Aiden Hutchinson (who went right after Walker). The Jaguars also failed to address an important need throughout the draft as well: Wide Receiver, which they will need especially now since DJ Chark left for the Lions. They also double-dipped with corner and linebacker, which I am not a fan of.

Good: New York Jets

The Jets had arguably one of the best drafts in NFL history. They were able to get three stud players in the first round with CB Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, WR Garret Wilson, and DE Jermaine Johnson II. They were also able to address their need of a RB with Breece Hall in the second round, and obtained players for other areas of need including TE with Jeremy Ruckert and OT with Max Mitchell. Shoutout to DE Micheal Clemons, who was their final pick and was taken in the fourth round. They addressed positions of need and spread the wealth across multiple positions, a solid drat for the Jets. The only reason why I feel that the Eagles fared better is because they were able to obtain A.J. Brown, who is already a proven player in the NFL.

Bad: Dallas Cowboys 

No offense but who is Tyler Johnson and why was he taken ahead of other top prospects at his position? Jerry needs to hang it up and just sit in the owners box (not that I’m unhappy they did bad since I’m an Eagles fan, but still). That’s all I have to say, Dallas was down bad this draft.
