NFL Draft Grades: NFC South Teams Doing Well, Except Saints (Video)

The 2012 NFL Draft is nearing the halfway point as we've gone through the first three rounds of the Draft. Rounds 4-7 come on Saturday afternoon but we can't wait that long to start grading the picks. SB Nation's YouTube crew recapped the second day of the NFL Draft.

Check out SB Nation's NFL Draft grades, and view the video for more analysis.

Panthers: I really like this class so far -- Luke Kuechly and Amini Silatolu had 1st round buzz. Both are starters, possibly as soon as this year. Tempted to put them at an A.

Saints: Akiem Hicks in Round 3. That's it. Gotta fail the Saints.

Falcons: Peter Konz is a great pick in the 2nd round. Lamar Holmes adds to the offensive line depth. But that's it. The cost of doing business when you move up nearly two dozen spots, as the Falcons did last year.

Buccaneers: I'm starting to love this draft. Mark Barron in the 1st round, and Doug Martin at the end of Round 1. Both potential starters and areas of need. Then Lavonte David in the 2nd round, who is also at a position of need. Great picks.
