The NFL Draft is over guys. It’s a sad day, I know. The good news is, the draft will be back in just under 365 calendar days so we all shouldn’t jump off a cliff and panic just yet. We have a lot of things to tide us over until then. What exactly? Well, how about THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF 2019 MOCK DRAFTS TO WET YOUR APPETITE? I’m sure those are already popping up all over the web, but we haven’t crossed that road here at The USB yet.

Oh no. We still have to talk about what happened during the 2018 NFL Draft. Here at The USB, we don’t operate like those other big-named websites. You won’t see a “DRAFT GRADES” article here, because I’m going to be honest with you guys. I have no idea how these guys are going to pan out in the NFL, and if anyone says that they do, they are a god damn liar and that’s the truth.

Instead of basing draft grades on how I assume players are going to pan out, I like to grade the draft on a very simple formula:

-Did the team address their biggest needs? I have the biggest needs of every team listed below. I can’t express how important it is for teams to draft players to meet those needs.

-The more draft picks, the better. I love teams with numerous draft picks. The NFL Draft is just one big giant gamble and you really never know which players are going to hit. The more picks you have, the better chances you have of nailing a starter, especially in the later rounds. GIVE ME ALL DA DRAFT PICKS!!!!

-Did the team draft a QB? QB is the most important position in the NFL and I personally feel that every team should take a flier on one at some point in the draft, especially in the later rounds. The QB position is so difficult to scout that you just never know when you’re going to find your next Tom Brady. Grab a QB guys.

And there we go. That’s my formula for deciding whether or not a team had a good draft.

Did your team draft well this year?

I’ll let you decide…….

*For the record, I’m not listing quarterbacks under the “biggest team needs”. Why? Because like I said,  I personally think EVERY single team could use another good quarterback on their roster.
