Philadelphia Eagles B plus- The Eagles usually do a solid job in the draft, and they did a good job this year. Danny Watkins is definitely going to start at guard, and he's a huge upgrade on the line. The Eagles' linebackers were poor last year, so the addition of Casey Matthews in the fourth round was a huge one for Philly. He was a nice deal there, and he will start. Dion Lewis can be a solid running back in the draft, and he was a nice pick in the fifth round.

Pittsburgh Steelers D plus- I really didn't like the draft the Steelers turned in this year. I love the Cameron Heyward pick a lot, but there was really nothing of note besides him for Pittsburgh.

San Diego Chargers B Corey Liuget will play at end in the Chargers' 3-4 and will effectively replace the poor Luis Castillo. Vincent Brown runs good routes, and he'll be productive for the Chargers; who may lose a few wideouts to free agency. Jordan Todman was my favorite pick by the Chargers. He was incredible for UConn, and he should be able to get some carries because the Chargers don't exactly have a steady running game. Todman was a very good deal in the 6th round.

San Francisco 49ers B Aldon Smith was a reach at number seven, but if you think he's the guy; you take him. Smith will fit in nicely in new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's defense. He's a very good edge rusher with a ton of upside, and this may mean that Manny Lawson- another quality edge rusher- will depart via free agency. Kendall Hunter was good value in the fourth round, and he will be right where he belongs; a solid backup to a great running back.

Colin Kaepernick can be a good starting quarterback in the NFL with another season. His funky delivery suits him well, and it actually helps him get rid of the ball faster. That quirky throwing motion is a good thing. Jim Harbaugh likes Alex Smith, and I hope Smith stays for another year as a bridge for Kaepernick. Kaepernick is a smart QB with great arm strength, and he is very athletic. With a year on the bench to learn an NFL playbook- he came from a pistol offense in college- Kaepernick could be the answer for San Francisco.

Seattle Seahawks F plus- This was a horrible draft. First, they took James Carpenter when Derek Sherrod and Gabe Carimi were on the board. The only solid player they picked in this draft was Wisconsin guard John Moffitt. That was a nice pick- he will be a solid contributor and leader right off- but that was just one guy. If Seattle wants to get better and build through the draft, they need to draft well in the first place.
Nice Pick By Niners
