Who Had the Best NFL Draft?

It’s that time of year again! The NFL Draft is complete and now everyone is wondering, who had the best NFL Draft?


Now that the NFL Draft is over, it’s time to take a look at who did the best. There are a few ways to measure this, but we’re going to focus on two: who got the most value in terms of draft picks, and who got the most talent.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The NFL Draft is complete and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came away as one of the big winners. They added several key pieces that should help them challenge for a spot in the playoffs next season.

The Bucs used their first-round pick on linebacker Devin White, who was widely considered to be the best player at his position in the draft. They also got a potential franchise quarterback in second-round pick Josh Allen. Allen has a lot of upside and could be a starter in the NFL for years to come.

The Bucs also made some nice additions on the offensive side of the ball, drafting wide receiver Justin Watson and running back Bruce Anderson. Both players have the potential to be immediate contributors for Tampa Bay.

Overall, it was a very successful draft for the Buccaneers. They addressed several needs and added some talented young players to their roster. We’ll have to wait and see how it all pans out, but right now, it looks like they are poised for a breakout year in 2019.

The Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens had, what many are calling, the best NFL draft. Not only did they get two potential franchise cornerstones in Florida State cornerback Asa Jackson and Clemson outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw, but they also added some key role players that could make an immediate impact.

The Ravens went into the draft with a few needs, but their biggest one was at cornerback. Jackson is a small, but physical corner that has the potential to be a shut-down corner in the NFL. He will need to add some weight and get used to the speed of the NFL game, but he has the potential to be a very good player for the Ravens.

Upshaw is a big, physical presence that will immediately upgrade the Ravens’ pass rush. He is also a good run defender and should be able to help the Ravens’ defense right away.

The Ravens also added some depth at wide receiver with the selections of Tommy Streeter from Miami (FL) and Deonte Thompson from Florida. Streeter is a big (6’5″, 220 lbs), fast receiver that could develop into a red zone threat for the Ravens. Thompson is a smaller (5’11”, 190 lbs), but quick receiver that could be used in the slot.

The Ravens also drafted two tight ends that could make an impact in 2012. Matt Furstenburg from Maryland is a big (6’4″, 245 lbs), physical tight end that can block and catch the ball. He will need to work on his route running, but he has the potential to be a very good player for the Ravens. Nick Provo from Syracuse is more of a receiving tight end that can also block. He is not as big as Furstenburg (6’3″, 240 lbs), but he is a very good athlete with good hands. Both of these players could see time on offense this season and should be able to contribute right away.

The Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys had one of the best NFL drafts this year. They added a lot of talent to their team and addressed some key needs. They got a franchise quarterback in Dak Prescott, a talented young receiver in Ezekiel Elliott, and a potential star defensive end in Jaylon Smith. They also added some depth and potential starters at other positions. Overall, it was a very successful draft for the Cowboys.


After all is said and done, the team that usually comes out on top of the draft is the one that had the most needs and addressed them the best. This year, that team is unquestionably the San Francisco 49ers. They added an instant starter at edge rusher in Nick Bosa with the second overall pick, then swung a trade with the Denver Broncos to move up to No. 3 overall and drafted stud DT DeForest Buckner. They also grabbed twoDay 2 starters in center Joshua Garnett and guard Ronald Blair. How many other teams can say they landed four starters in this draft?
