The Broncos had a "solid if unspectacular draft that brought reasonably good value and knocked out a few needs," wrote Rotoworld's Evan Silva.

The analyst gave Denver's haul a "B-" grade. Silva sees OLB Shane Ray, OT Ty Sambrailo and perhaps even Florida C Max Garcia as Day 1 starters. ESPN's Mel Kiper agreed with the B- grade. "The trade up to get Shane Ray could end up becoming a steal, because while Ray's injury issue and off-field questions have been well-documented, you're talking about a highly productive pass-rusher who belonged in the top 10 on ability nabbed by a team that still wants to contend for a Super Bowl," Kiper wrote. "If he's right and spelling Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, this is a deep pass rush."

The Colts "managed to get several of my favorite players in the draft, yet I still think they continue to play with fire by not doing more to build quality depth along the offensive line," wrote ESPN's Mel Kiper.

He gave Indianapolis a "B-" draft grade. "D'Joun Smith is a solid sleeper cornerback and a decent value at No. 65 overall, and I think Henry Anderson is going to be a good defensive lineman in this league for a while," Kiper wrote. "I like three of those guys, and Amarlo Herrera could be a nice value late. David Parry is also a ball of muscle and has a chance to stick and deliver value in a rotation." GM Ryan Grigson told the media that he took Miami WR Phillip Dorsett in Round 1 because the prospect was easily the top rated prospect on the team's board at the time of the pick. Rotoworld's Evan Silva gave the Colts class a "C+."

Chargers signed Texas A&M K Josh Lambo.

Lambo (6'0/216) is a former MLS soccer player who spent two years as the Aggies' placekicker, converting 21-of-25 field goal (84 percent) attempts. He was replaced on kickoffs by Taylor Bertolet, which could be a concern for Lambo's chances of holding an NFL roster spot. Still, Lambo is an excellent athlete, has a big-league leg, and was an accurate field-goal kicker in college. He's got a shot.

Redskins signed UCF LB Terrance Plummer.

Plummer (5'11/231) was a three-year starter at Mike linebacker, tallying 30.5 career tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and four INTs. He was a first-team All-American Athletic Conference pick as a junior and senior. Plummer is small and lacks sideline-to-sideline speed (4.90), but is a playmaking overachiever. He figures to begin his career on special teams and could push for defensive snaps down the line.
May 4 - 1:26 AM

Steelers signed Texas A&M TE/T Cameron Clear.

Clear (6'5/277) spent two years as a blocking tight end with the Aggies after transferring from community college, managing nine catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. He's expected to convert to offensive tackle in the pros, where Clear's 4.98 forty, 9-foot broad jump, and 32-inch vertical would make him a plus athlete for the position. Clear has 33 5/8-inch arms, also offering adequate length for the switch. He's likely a one- or two-year project.
May 4 - 1:22 AM

49ers signed Alabama WR DeAndrew White.

White (6'0/193) was a lightly used complementary receiver in the Crimson Tide's offense, managing 94 career catches, 1,294 yards (13.8 YPR), and 12 TDs in four seasons. He ran 4.44 at the Combine, but struggled in the vertical (34 1/2") and broad (9'10") jumps. Small, often injured, and not proficient at creating separation, White's ceiling is a pedestrian No. 3 or 4 receiver. White's lack of special teams experience will hurt his NFL chances.
May 4 - 1:18 AM

Chargers signed Western Oregon WR Tyrell Williams.

Williams (6'4/204) holds the record for career receptions (164) at Western Oregon, where he earned first-team Great Northwest Conference honors in each of his final three seasons. Williams averaged 17.0 yards per catch and ripped up his March Pro Day, running 4.43 with a 39 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-7 broad jump. A SPARQ freak with strong production and a reputation for overpowering his opponents, Williams is someone to monitor long term.
May 4 - 1:14 AM

Chargers signed West Virginia RB Dreamius Smith.

Smith (5'11/223) spent two seasons at WVU after transferring from JUCO, turning 183 carries into 945 yards (5.16 YPC) and ten TDs. He caught 13 passes for 52 yards. Despite a nondescript college career, Smith put himself on NFL radars by running 4.50/4.52 with a 35-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump at the Mountaineers' Pro Day. Smith is a stiff, straight-linish runner, but gobbles up blocked yards and runs hard downhill. While obviously not a big-time prospect, he's a name to keep in mind based on his impressive size-athleticism combination.
May 4 - 1:07 AM

Chargers signed Kansas State OLB Ryan Mueller.

Mueller (6'2/245) walked on at K-State and went on to become a 26-game starter, tallying 33.5 career TFLs, 20.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles. He was a first-team All-Big 12 selection by the conference's coaches as both a junior and senior. Already undersized, Mueller's sub-optimal athleticism was exposed at the Wildcats' Pro Day, running 4.84 with an 8-foot-9 broad jump. Mueller excelled as a college player with extreme hustle, but his limitations are a lock to show up in the pros. He would do well to become a useful sub-package pass rusher.
May 4 - 1:01 AM

Chargers signed Central Michigan WR Titus Davis.

Davis (6'1/196) followed in the footsteps of Antonio Brown with the Chippewas, starting all four years and parlaying 204 career catches into 3,700 yards (18.1 YPR) with 37 TDs. First-team All MAC as both a junior and senior, Davis is the only wideout in FBS history to catch eight-plus TD passes in all four seasons. Despite his productive resume, Davis has abnormally short arms (29 5/8") and small hands (8 1/4"), and is an ordinary athlete with 4.51 speed, a 32 1/2-inch vertical, and a 9-foot-11 broad jump. Not quite skilled enough to excel on the perimeter, and not quite sudden enough for the slot, Davis figures to max out as a No. 3/4 receiver in the pros.
May 4 - 12:55 AM

Steelers signed Auburn C Reese Dismukes.

Dismukes (6'3/296) won the 2014 Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center, finishing his time at Auburn with two first-team All-SEC selections and 50 starts. He showed passable athleticism in Indianapolis, running 5.31 with a 27 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-11 broad jump. An undersized, high-effort scrapper, Dismukes can only play center and has a ceiling of "functional starter" despite his decorated college resume.
May 4 - 12:48 AM

Bucs signed Louisville RB Dominique Brown.

Brown (6'2/234) finished his Louisville career with 1,736 yards and 16 TDs on 399 carries (4.35 YPC), adding 47 receptions. He was frequently injured in college and slipped down the depth chart as a senior. Brown turned some heads with a solid East-West Shrine performance, but ran 4.63/4.65 at his Pro Day with a brutal 9-foot-1 broad jump. As Brown will turn 24 late in his rookie year, we suspect his NFL career will be brief.
May 4 - 12:44 AM

Redskins signed Duke OT Takoby Cofield.

Cofield (6'4/310) was a 42-game starter for the Blue Devils, earning third-team All-ACC recognition as a senior left tackle. He has plus length (34" arms), big hands (10") and showed adequate athleticism at the Combine with a 5.19 forty and 30-inch vertical. Cofield is a good enough run blocker to eventually push for playing time at right tackle or guard, but lacks the foot speed and pass-protection skills to stay on the blind side.
May 4 - 12:39 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper gave the Ravens an "A-" draft grade.

"Breshad Perriman could have been off the board by No. 14, and I wouldn't have blinked," Kiper wrote. "To get a big (218 pounds), fast (sub-4.3 speed) big-play threat such as this at No. 26 is a great get." The analyst sees some Dez Bryant in Perriman. "Maxx Williams was a player the Ravens coveted, and to get him at No. 55 overall was good value," Kiper wrote. "Both he and Perriman could be impact players from the rookie class, which is rare on a good team." Kiper also liked Baltimore's later picks, which included DT Carl Davis, edge rusher Za'Darius Smith, CB Tray Walker, RB Buck Allen and TE Nick Boyle.

Titans signed Florida State OG Josue Matias.

Matias (6'6/309) was a stalwart left guard for the Seminoles, tallying 43 starts and earning second-team All ACC as a senior. Brutally short on athleticism, Matias posted a 17 1/2-inch vertical, 5.52 forty, and 7-foot broad jump at the Combine. Matias has the build of a right tackle, but his inability to move efficiently or smoothly is a major concern. It would be a surprise if Matias became more than a high-end backup or barely-functional spot starter.
