After giving the results of the NFL Draft a few days to sink in I decided I would give the whole draft grade thing a chance since that’s what’s hot on Twitter. Find below my unarguably correct draft grades:

Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals made a good pick in Kyler Murray however it was a probably a reach with taller Kyler Murray (Tyree Jackson) still on the board.

Grade: F

Atlanta Falcons: Tyree Jackson doesn’t have a cool nickname like “Matty Ice” but he’s better at football, the Falcons made a mistake passing on Jackson.

Grade: F

Baltimore Ravens: There was talk last year about the Ravens using Lamar Jackson as a WR, and they could have done that this year with true QB Tyree Jackson available, but they passed.

Grade: F

Buffalo Bills: The Bills actually did sign Tyree Jackson as a UDFA, but given #OneBuffalo and all you probably should have taken him in at least the 7th round.

Grade: D

Carolina Panthers: We’ve all seen the size/athleticism comparisons between Cam Newton and Tyree Jackson, so this would have been the ideal team for Tyree, but the Panthers chose to go another route.

Grade: F

Chicago Bears: What’s better than one future Hall of Famer from UB? Two future HOFs from UB. However, the Bears didn’t have the foresight to realize this dream and passed on Tyree Jackson.

Grade: F

Cincinnati Bengals: I mean come on, you took Ryan Finley instead of Tyree Jackson, enough said.

Grade: F

Cleveland Browns: The city of Cleveland is sick of UB after winning every MAC basketball title possible so they got revenge by not drafting Tyree Jackson.

Grade: F

Dallas Cowboys: Not drafting Tyree Jackson was pretty un-American of “America’s Team”.

Grade: F

Denver Broncos: The Broncos got scared of tall QBs after the Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch debacles, understandable but a mistake nonetheless.

Grade: F

Detroit Lions: The Lions hate feel good stories, so they didn’t draft the local MI kid (Tyree Jackson).

Grade: F

Green Bay Packers: It’s clear to see that Aaron Rodgers calls the shots in Green Bay, and he’s terrified of Tyree Jackson based on the fact that the Packers did not draft Jackson.

Grade: F

Houston Texans: Rumors around the Texans organization say national champion DeShaun Watson was concerned about having to compete for his job against MAC East champion Tyree Jackson, so the Texans passed.

Grade: F

Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck is injured all the time so investing in the best QB in the 2019 draft class (Tyree Jackson) would have been a smart move.

Grade: F

Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars have no idea how to evaluate QB talent, releasing Blake Bortles and not selecting Tyree Jackson.

Grade: F

Kansas City Chiefs: A lot of people are calling Tyree Jackson “Patrick Mahomes 2.0” so the Chiefs found it wise to pass on Jackson as to avoid conflict in the QB room.

Grade: F

Los Angeles Chargers: The Chargers took Jackson off their board due to a lack of foot skills and an inability to finish PKs.

Grade: F

Los Angeles Rams: All I’m saying is Tyree Jackson could have put up at least 4 points in the Super Bowl.

Grade: F

Miami Dolphins: Trading your 2nd round pick for Josh Rosen with Tyree Jackson on the board is inexplicable.

Grade: F

Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings needed a mobile QB to run from the defensive linemen constantly in their backfield but they passed on Tyree Jackson in favor of keeping Kirk Cousins because he has better GIFs.

Grade: F

New England Patriots: The Patriots must be sick of winning Super Bowls because they passed on Tyree Jackson, the best QB since Tom Brady.

Grade: F

New Orleans Saints: If Sean Payton could make 6’0” Drew Brees look decent, he would have made 6’7” Tyree Jackson look GREAT. A clear miss by the Saints here.

Grade: F

New York Giants: The Giants reached for Daniel Jones instead of taking Tyree Jackson, who would have been a true steal at pick #6.

Grade: F

New York Jets: Do the residents of New Jersey get mad that the Jets have New York on their jersey? Tyree Jackson would have been the man to lead the New Jersey Jets to relevance after the tear down of NYJI.

Grade: F

Oakland Raiders: The Raiders hate UB players (see Khalil Mack).

Grade: F

Philadelphia Eagles: Surprised that Tyree Jackson did not do enough on the Eagle’s home field, while torching Temple, to get drafted.

Grade: F

Pittsburgh Steelers: Sources say Tyree Jackson was not on their draft board due to concerns of a MAC East rivalry in the QB room.

Grade: F

San Francisco 49ers: I don’t have anything here other than the 49ers are bad and should feel bad for not drafting Tyree Jackson.

Grade: F

Seattle Seahawks: Passing on tall Russell Wilson (Tyree Jackson) didn’t make a lot of sense.

Grade: F

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Buccaneers are like the guy in your fantasy football league that has no idea what he’s doing. They took a kicker in the 5th round when the best QB (Tyree Jackson) was still on the board.

Grade: F

Tennessee Titans: The only excuse I can come up with for the Titans not drafting Tyree Jackson is maybe they let the fans in the streets make the picks?

Grade: F

Washington Redskins: The Redskins had their choice of the top 2 Heisman snubs, Tyree Jackson and Dwayne Haskins. The Redskins chose the wrong QB (Haskins).

Grade: F
