AFC WEST DRAFT GRADES: The Crimson Tide West and Mahomes gets a shiny new toy

Denver Broncos

I love the Broncos first pick in Jerry Jeudy. He’s arguably the best receiver in the draft and is the best route runner. I like them going wide receiver again in round 2 in drafting the speedy receiver out of Penn State, but drafting Hamler at 46 might have been a stretch. There other picks were not the sexiest ones, but have good value. Drew Lock is definitely the happiest Bronco right now. 

Draft Grade: B

Kansas City Chiefs 

What made this a successful draft for the Chiefs, was them drafting Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Already having the league’s best offense, they decide draft a running back who will fit their system perfectly. He will be massive in the passing game for them. They decide to draft defensive players will four of their final five picks which is a good call in my books.

Draft Grade: B+

Las Vegas Raiders

They get their wide receiver in Ruggs with the first pick, which should really help out Carr. Their second first round pick is very questionable to me. Drafting a corner back makes sense, but I would not have went with Arnette. Their next pick, Lynn Bowden JR is a very interesting pick. He is a jack of all trades. He can play QB, RB, and even WR. I like them taking a chance on him.

Draft Grade: B

Los Angeles Chargers

With their first pick, they go with the 6 foot 6 QB out of Oregon in Justin Herbert. Interesting to see how his game transitions in the NFL and if he’ll be more than a “safe” QB which many experts have labeled him. They then trade up to acquire Kenneth Murray, linebacker out of Oklahoma. He’ll fit right into that defense. A few of their other draft picks may pleasantly surprise some people…I’m looking at you Kelly and Gilman.

Draft Grade: B+
