WINNERS AND LOSERS
WINNERS

  • Atlanta Falcons:  Great teams rarely pick in the top 10.  Look at Colts for the past ten years.  This pick gives Matt Ryan an elite target for the rest of his career.  Makes an immediate impact from day one.
  • New Orleans Saints:  They got who is arguably the best DE in the draft and got the best RB in the draft.  The Rich get richer.  Love what the saints did.

LOSERS

  • New England Patriots:  Patriots got their LT to protect Tom Brady.  That was fine.  But why did they trade their 28th pick?  They are looking way too much at the future.  It seams all they care about is stock piling future draft picks.  Tom Brady will not last forever.  Why not make a good team now.  They skipped on opportunities to draft elite 5 techs in Wilkerson and Heyward.  And they missed on opportunity to draft Mark Ingram.......
