Almost 48 hours removed from the annual tradition of Mr. Irrelevant closing out the three-day festivity known as the NFL Draft, hundreds of draft reviews are circulating around the Internet.
Experts attempt to examine each individual pick and then collectively add the grades together to give a draft grade to each franchise.

Standing firm with what we currently have has been a recurring theme this offseason as the Redskins return all but one starter from last year’s squad.
Going into the draft, though, secondary was an area of interest for the 2012 NFC East champs as it seemed like every “expert” was tabbing a corner or safety to come to the Nation’s Capital.
Did they predict three DBs, two of which led the NCAA in interception, would join the team?
ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano looked into his crystal ball for the NFL future for trio and sees some starters for the upcoming campaign.
