Has Moncrief as one of the best steals of the draft....yet then basically unanimously picked the Colts as the worst overall draft in the NFL.

Which was the best value pick of the draft, non-quarterback division?

Edholm: A few come to mind. I had Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde ranked as my No. 36 player and he went 57th to the 49ers. That's excellent value. So was Mississippi receiver Donte Moncrief (ranked No. 47) who went 90th to the Colts and easily was their best pick. But I also can't help but think that the Texans stole Louis Nix, our 22nd-ranked player, with the 83rd selection. Heck, they were considering him at 33 and again at 65. To get him that late was pure theft.

Which team had the worst draft?

Schwab: I just didn't like what Philadelphia did. It seemed like they kept reaching for players who they could have gotten later. Taking Oregon receiver Josh Huff in the third just seemed like his old college coach, Chip Kelly, making the easy decision to go with a player he knew well. The secondary didn't get a ton of help unless third-day pick Jaylen Watkins out of Florida helps right away. Maybe Kelly knew more than everyone else, but right now it's a head-scratcher.

Edholm: I graded out the Colts as the worst, even with the Moncrief pick, but let's be fair and honest: They were dealing from a short deck following the Trent Richardson deal (which was their own damned fault and should be factored in, I argue.) Other uninspiring drafts: Dolphins, Chiefs, Eagles and Redskins. I might have been slightly too harsh on the Bills' efforts.

Richardson: Sorry, but it is still fair to kick the Colts for the Richardson trade that cost this team a first-round draft pick. The Colts selected Ohio State offensive Jack Mewhort in the second round instead of drafting a quality receiver or safety. Moncrief is okay, but was second on his team in receptions last season.
