QB Paxton Lynch
This will be the highest grade for anyone who moved up because they graded this player high and moved up when it was clear others were trying to get up there to take him first. Would be an A, but I hate first round picks that won’t help the team. It is unlikely Lynch plays this year. Hopefully, Mark Sanchez will play less like himself and more like a person who deserves to start for the defending Super Bowl champions.
The Chiefs traded out of the first round.
S Karl Joseph
This is clearly a need based pick instead of best player available. Joseph is a huge stretch for this early in the first round, and there was clearly plenty of trades flying around that the Raiders could have taken advantage of. He should be a day one starter, but if you were going to stretch on a need, why not William Jackson III?
San Diego Chargers
DE Joey Bosa
NFL teams spend at least 60% of the time in sub packages which means Bosa’s pass rush skills will be used, but this is a 3-4 base team. DeForest Buckner was still available at this pick, and Buckner fits the base scheme better while offering above average pass rush ability. Three seems like a surprisingly high selection for a player with off the field issues especially when a more versatile, potentially better player is available.
