2019 NFL Draft
These scores, out of a possible 100 points, rate each team by how efficient they were at making their selections during the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Redskins came away with the #1 ranking for 2019 with the help of solid value picks throughout the draft, but mainly by taking advantage of their first round selections. They are the only team that managed to draft two of our top ten overall players (Dwayne Haskins, #10, and Montez Sweat, #7).
The Kliff Kingsbury-led Cardinals came in at #2, mainly because they were able to add a whopping six of our Top 70 players with their 11 picks, including our QB1 (Kyler Murray), CB1 (Byron Murphy), and two wide receivers we were high on (Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler).
At the other end of the spectrum, the two teams that graded out significantly worse than the rest of the league, were the Giants and Texans.
The Giants started out their draft by drafting our #38 overall player and QB4 (Daniel Jones) at #6, and then took our #27 overall player and DL6 (Dexter Lawrence) at #17. They then traded back up into the first round to select our #34 overall player and CB3 (Deandre Baker) at #30. Overall, the Giants added some good players, but had a very poor first round when it comes to value.
The Texans, much like the Giants, started out the draft with very poor value as far as our model is concerned. After a run on offensive lineman, the Texans selected Tytus Howard, our #86 overall player and OL15, with the 23rd pick in the draft. Their picks in the next three rounds didn’t crack our Top 100, but they did score well value-wise in the 5th Round with their selection of Charles Omenihu, our #73 overall player and DL9 with the 161st overall pick in the draft. That was the only Texans’ pick that our model was high on.
