Ranking and Grading Each NFL Team’s 2023 Draft Class

The 2023 NFL Draft has officially come to an end. That ever-lasting feel of fun, adventure, and excitement is now over. The season is now just a few months away, and I am already counting the days. Sure, it will be weird not doing mock drafts anymore, but I guess I’ll just have to wait until Caleb Williams decides to be the #1 pick new year or not. Overall, there is much to look forward to in next year’s draft but…

We are focused on this year’s people. Everybody is talking about how better their team’s draft class was than the next person’s. The only opinion that matters now is mine because I have compiled a ranking and grading system for each team’s draft class. It takes into account the needs of certain positions, the best player available, how the team did monitoring their draft assets and current and future picks, and so on and so forth. Did your team receive a good grade, or did your team fail? Let’s find out!
