DD Round 1 Instant Grades:
==
1. Indianapolis Colts - QB Andrew Luck, Stanford

Grade: A.
Colts didn't overthink it, took the best available player. Luck is a once in a decade franchise QB prospect.
==
2. Washington Redskins - QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor

Grade: A-.
RG3 should be very successful, very early. His arm is exceptional and his legs will get him out of trouble.
==
3. Cleveland Browns - RB Trent Richardson, Alabama

Grade: B-.
Great fit and a great prospect but a questionable use of value. Did the Browns really need to trade up 1 spot for a tailback?
==
4. Minnesota Vikings - OT Matt Kalil, Southern California

Grade: A+.
Left tackles _are_ essential and the Vikings' actions proved that maxim. Vikings were playing smart poker all week and it paid off.
==
5. Jacksonville Jaguars - WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State

Grade: B+.
Blackmon as a top-5 pick is deserved. He is a blue chip option and will be a huge help to Blaine Gabbert.
==
6. Dallas Cowboys - CB Morris Claiborne, L.S.U.

Grade: A.
Cowboys made a splash by snatching the final remaining blue chip player. Were the Bucs caught snoozing?
==
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - S Mark Barron, Alabama

Grade: C+.
Bucs have uncertainty at the center of their defensive backfield, Barron is a very good option out of a short supply.
==
8. Miami Dolphins - QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

Grade: B.
After missing out on several targets, the Dolphins claim Tannehill and his athletic upside. Got to have a QB in this league.
==
9. Carolina Panthers - LB Luke Kuechly, Boston College

Grade: A-.
To have a middle linebacker healthy and productive will be a welcome change in Carolina. Kuechly is a tackling machine.
==
10. Buffalo Bills - CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina

Grade: B+.
Bills reload at the crucial cornerback position, Gilmore can ball hawk and shore up the leaky secondary.
==
11. Kansas City Chiefs - DT Dontari Poe, Memphis

Grade: B.
This player has been criticized but according to the planet theory, there are few people on the planet Earth with his measurables.
==
12. Philadelphia Eagles - DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State

Grade: A.
Eagles were aggressive in trading up. Cox is as comfortable at end, as he at tackle, just an outstanding athlete.
==
13. Arizona Cardinals - WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame

Grade: B+.
Cards stuck to their board and found value with Floyd. Having Fitzgerald to take the heat is ideal for his early career.
==
14. St. Louis Rams - DT Michael Brockers, L.S.U.

Grade: A-.
Brockers can toughen up the interior of the Rams defense and sneaking into the top 15, this was about his draft value.
==
15. Seattle Seahawks - DE Bruce Irvin, West Virginia

Grade: C.
Irvin has a rare first step that can't be taught. Most will say he's a reach, but he could make the media look dumb by producing sacks.
==
16. New York Jets - DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina

Grade: A-.
Coples has been nitpicked for months but he is productive and showed signs of dominance. Rex Ryan can use him at 5-tech.
==
17. Cincinnati Bengals - CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

Grade: B+.
Kirkpatrick shores up the Bengals secondary and was drafted on time, he wasn't going to last much longer.
==
18. San Diego Chargers - LB Melvin Ingram, South Carolina

Grade: A.
Ingram at 18 was an absolute steal for a versatile and tough rush linebacker. He should improve the defense right away.
==
19. Chicago Bears - LB Shea McClellin, Boise State

Grade: B-.
McClellin's career will be helped if the Bears use him at his college position of 4-3 defensive end. Slight reach?
==
20. Tennessee Titans - WR Kendall Wright, Baylor

Grade B.
Opinions vary on Wright but the Titans should see increased scoring with this potentially dynamic play-maker.
==
21. New England Patriots - DE Chandler Jones, Syracuse

Grade: C+.
Boom or bust. Positive outcome possible based on bloodlines and wingspan. But did he really show enough to be worth this pick?
==
22. Cleveland Browns (VIA ATL) - QB Brandon Weeden, Oklahome State

Grade: B-.
It's understandable to want to upgrade the QB position but Weeden might have lingered until their 2nd round pick.
==
23. Detroit Lions - OT Reilly Reiff, Iowa

Grade: B+.
Reiff may or may not be a left tackle, but the Lions need help at several spots and Reiff will be solid.
==
24. Pittsburgh Steelers - OG David Decastro, Stanford

Grade: A+
Steelers got a steal for this player, at this spot in the round. Just a great pick.
==
25. New England Patriots - LB Dont'a Hightower, Alabama

Grade: B+.
Hightower upgrades Pats defense as a linebacker or as a pass rusher, and should help early. Saban connection on display.
==
26. Houston Texans - DE Whitney Mercilus, Illinois

Grade: A-.
The most recent NCAA single season sack leader is a great value this late in the frame and he has exciting upside.
==
27. Cincinnati Bengals - OG Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin

Grade C.
Nothing against Zeitler, who is a solid, mauling tough-guy, but the Bengals seemed to make one trade down too many.
==
28. Green Bay Packers - DE Nick Perry, Southern California

Grade: A-. Perry is another example of a highly talented athlete with big-time sack production going later than he could have in the 1st frame.
==
29. Minnesota Vikings - S Harrison Smith, Notre Dame

Grade: C+.
Smith is more impressive in workouts than he is on the football field, and it's questionable if another trade was really necessary.
==
30. San Francisco 49ers - WR A.J. Jenkins, Illinois

Grade: B-. Jenkins was a reach, but only by a half round. He's a scrappy player with legit speed and play-making ability.
==
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - RB Doug Martin, Boise State

Grade: A-.
Bucs could have a real nice rushing attack next year with Martin's vision and a re-vamped offensive line.
==
32. New York Giants - RB David Wilson, Virginia Tech

Grade: B-.
Wilson has that extra gear to take it to the house, but wonder if Martin was their real target and were surprised by the Bucs?
==
