15. Cincinnati Bengals

Apparently, Cincinnati has everything it needs. It’s so good and so loaded that it could afford to take a kicker in the fifth round.

Okay, so the Bengals had a ton of picks and that’s fine, but 1) they needed an OT and took Ja’Marr Chase over Penei Sewell. That had better be the right call, and 2) they took a whole lot of guys who are just okay NFL prospects. Florida PK Evan McPherson can’t be the best pro of the bunch after the third round.

14. Tennessee Titans

The Titans threw Virginia Tech’s Caleb Farley and Washington’s Elijah Molden at the cornerback problem. Start there and don’t get too hung up on anything else.

There were a slew of strong flier picks late, and landing OT Dillon Radunz in the second round will help, but it would’ve been nice to get one of the better wide receivers in a deep draft – Dez Fitzpatrick in the fourth round is okay, but that’s not fixing the glitch.

13. Miami Dolphins

It’s close. They could’ve used another flier of a wide receiver to go along with the Jaylen Waddle pick at the 6, and Miami edge rusher Jaelan Phillips didn’t fit a glaring need at the 18, but they got real players with their first five picks. They should have – they were all in the top 81. However, if Waddle isn’t amazing – taking wide receivers in the top ten has lately been a bad, bad call – this class looks very ordinary very fast.

12. Kansas City Chiefs

For Kansas City, the draft was actually … normal? The franchise doesn’t do anything by the drafting book – and everything has worked out just fine thanks to that one very, very big pick at the 10 in 2017 – but this time it actually took great prospects at the right times. The late round fliers were fantastic, particularly Tennessee OG Trey Smith in the sixth. If the medical concerns turn out to be okay, kaboom.

11. Denver Broncos

YOU HAD ONE JOB. Okay, so maybe Denver likes Drew Lock, or maybe it’s about to get Aaron Rodgers, but to come out of a quarterback-loaded draft without a quarterback was puzzling.

However, forgetting that glaring decision, it was a really good haul of other positions, especially for the secondary. Always like the strength-in-numbers picks – take the same position a few times late and hope for one to hit. The Broncos did that.
