The 2012 NFL draft may be over, but the hard work isn't. Now comes the time to break down how each team did as a whole and how well they fit their needs.
With every bit of the 253 selections in the books, here's a look at how well staff members did at grabbing value for their picks, and drafting quality over quanity.
Please feel free to speak your mind and grade your favorite team's draft below!
1. Arizona Cardinals
Round 1: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
Round 2: None
Round 3: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
Round 4: Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss
Round 5: Senio Kelemete, OG, Washington
Round 6: Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State and Justin Bethel, CB, Presbyterian
Round 7: Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
The Cardinals weren't very top-heavy with picks this year after the Kevin Kolb trade, but they made the most of it. Larry Fitzgerald is a fan of Michael Floyd, and those two should be able to build a nice chemistry on the field. Jammell Fleming and Bobby Massie are great value for mid-round selections. I'm hesistant to give Arizona a better grade because it did not address a big need—outside linebacker.
2. Atlanta Falcons
Round 1: None
Round 2: Peter Konz, C/OG, Wisconsin
Round 3: Lamar Holmes, OT, Southern Miss
Round 4: None
Round 5: Bradie Ewing, FB, Wisconsin and Jonathan Massaquoi, DE, Troy
Round 6: Charles Mitchell, S, Mississippi State
Round 7: Travian Robertson, DT, South Carolina
Atlanta didn't expect to get a top tier player after losing its first-round selection via Julio Jones trade last year, but it did anyway with Peter Konz, who will likely serve as a guard until told otherwise. The Falcons did a nice job filling depth with their later picks, too.
3. Baltimore Ravens
Round 1: None
Round 2: Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama and Kelechi Osemele, OT, Iowa State
Round 3: Bernard Pierce, RB, Temple
Round 4: Gino Gradkowski, OG, Delaware and Christian Thompson, S, South Carolina State
Round 5: Asa Jackson, CB, Cal Poly
Round 6: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami (Fla.)
Round 7: DeAngelo Tyson, DT, Georgia
I like what the Ravens did by grabbing an extremely intelligent, athletic football player with Courtney Upshaw. He'll be an immediate contributor as an outside linebacker and likely some special teams. Kelechi Osemele can play inside, which is a big hole on Baltimore's offensive line. Still, it didn't take a future replacement for the aging Ray Lewis, and DeAngelo Tyson isn't going to fill the void at defensive tackle as a starter.
4. Buffalo Bills
Round 1: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
Round 2: Cordy Glenn, OT, Georgia
Round 3: T.J. Graham, WR, North Carolina State
Round 4: Nigel Bradham, OLB, Florida State and Ron Brooks, CB, LSU
Round 5: Zebrie Sanders, OT, Florida State and Tank Carder, OLB, TCU
Round 6: Mark Asper, OG, Oregon
Round 7: John Potter, K, Western Michigan
I didn't think corner was Buffalo's biggest need, but it got a great one with Gilmore nonetheless. Cordy Glenn can play guard and tackle, and will be a starter on the Bills' offensive line come Week 1. I'm not sold on the T.J. Graham pick—I think they could have done a little better here in terms of quality with a round 3 selection.
5. Carolina Panthers
Round 1: Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
Round 2: Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State
Round 3: None
Round 4: Frank Alexander, DE, Oklahoma and WR Joe Adams, Arkansas
Round 5: Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina
Round 6: Brad Nortman, P, Wisconsin
Round 7: D.J. Campbell, S, California
Carolina got the best linebacker in the draft when it took Luke Kuechly No. 9 overall. However, other than Silatolu (who is likely a developmental project), all I see are role players and depth.
6. Chicago Bears
Round 1: Shea McClellin, OLB/DE, Boise State
Round 2: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
Round 3: Brandon Hardin, S, Oregon State
Round 4: Evan Rodriguez, FB/TE, Temple
Round 5: None
Round 6: Isaiah Frey, CB, Nevada
Round 7: Greg McCoy, CB, TCU
McClellin is the perfect counterpart for Julius Peppers and Jeffery is a huge steal in the second round (just imagine him across the field from Marshall). Rodriguez is a versatile offensive athlete that can line up at either full back, tight end, and even wide receiver. The Bears knocked this draft out of the park.
7. Cincinnati Bengals
Round 1: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama and Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin
Round 2: Devon Still, DE/DT, Penn State
Round 3: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers and Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
Round 4: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia
Round 5: Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa and Marvin Jones, WR, Cal and George Iloka, S, Boise State
Round 6: Dan Herron, RB, Ohio State
Round 7: None
Although they essentially traded down just to miss out on David DeCastro and draft Kevin Zeitler, the Bengals had arguably the best draft out of any other team. Kirkpatrick, Zeitler, Still, Sanu and Thompson will probably all start come Week 1, while the rest will compete for starting position and give depth for the future. Cincinnati has had two straight outstanding draft classes.
8. Cleveland Browns
Round 1: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama and Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
Round 2: Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
Round 3: John Hughes, DT, Cincinnati
Round 4: Travis Benjamin, WR, Miami (Fla.) and James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada
Round 5: Ryan Miller, OG, Colorado
Round 6: Emmanuel Acho, OLB, Texas and Billy Winn, DE, Boise State
Round 7: Trevin Wade, CB, Arizona and Brad Smelley, FB/TE, Alabama
I'm in love with the Trent Richardson, Trevin Wade, and Brad Smelley picks. Unfortunately, two of those came in the seventh round, meaning the Browns were careless with their other selections. Brandon Weeden is not a first-round caliber quarterback, Mitchell Schwartz is a huge stretch and John Hughes and Travis Benjamin weren't even on my draft boards. Cleveland did not add to its dismal passing arsenal until the fourth round and that was it.
9. Dallas Cowboys
Round 1: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
Round 2: None
Round 3: Tyrone Crawford, DE, Boise State
Round 4: Kyle Wilber, OLB, Wake Forest and Matt Johnson, S, Eastern Washington
Round 5: Danny Coale, WR, Virginia Tech
Round 6: James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
Round 7: Caleb McSurdy, ILB, Montana
For the few picks it had, Dallas did a good job filling needs. It traded up for the best corner in the draft (Claiborne), who will lock that position down for the next 10-plus years and help a secondary that has really struggled as of late.
10. Denver Broncos
Round 1: None
Round 2: Derek Wolfe, DT, Cincinnati and Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
Round 3: Ronnie Hillman, RB, San Diego State
Round 4: Omar Bolden, CB, Arizona State and Philip Blake, C, Baylor
Round 5: Malik Jackson, DT, Tennessee
Round 6: Danny Trevathan, OLB, Kentucky
Round 7: None
You could tell that Denver was drafting for need last weekend. But Derek Wolfe over Devon Still and Jerel Worthy, Ronnie Hillman over Lamar Miller, and Brock Osweiler over Kirk Cousins? The Broncos could have done things a lot differently, and I don't think picking Osweiler was a better idea than getting a quality corner.
