With the 2020 NFL Draft officially complete, theScore's NFL editors hand out their initial grades for how teams fared over the course of the three-day event.


Dallas Cowboys

Round Pick Player
1 17 WR CeeDee Lamb
2 51 CB Trevon Diggs
3 82 DT Neville Gallimore
4 123 CB Reggie Robinson II
4 146 C Tyler Biadasz
5 179 DE Bradlee Anae
7 231 QB Ben DiNucci

Grade: A

It's difficult to envision a bigger winner from the 2020 draft than Jerry Jones' squad. Though receiver wasn't the Cowboys' biggest need, selecting Lamb - easily the top remaining prospect on the board - was a no-brainer. The value picks didn't end there. Diggs, Gallimore, Biadasz, and Anae each could have been selected earlier than their slot, and all of them address Dallas' greatest needs. The Cowboys might be NFC East favorites after a stellar draft.

New York Giants

Round Pick Player
1 4 OT Andrew Thomas
2 36 S Xavier McKinney
3 99 OT Matt Peart
4 110 CB Darnay Holmes
5 150 G Shane Lemieux
6 183 LB Cameron Brown
7 218 LB Carter Coughlin
7 238 LB T.J. Brunson
7 247 CB Chris WIlliamson
7 255 LB Tae Crowder

Grade: A-

Kudos to Dave Gettleman. The Giants general manager came into the draft with a plan and he executed it well. Thomas wasn't the consensus top tackle prospect but he has All-Pro potential and will make life easier for Daniel Jones. McKinney represents outstanding value at No. 36 and fills a major weakness. From Round 3 onward, New York hauled in a few solid players at key roster positions - including Peart, who has long-term starter potential at right tackle. After two questionable drafts, Gettleman's 2020 class looks great on paper.

Philadelphia Eagles

Round Pick Player
1 21 WR Jalen Reagor
2 53 QB Jalen Hurts
3 103 LB Davion Taylor
4 127 S K'Von Wallace
4 145 OT Jack Driscoll
5 168 WR John Hightower
6 196 LB Shaun Bradley
6 200 WR Quez Watkins
6 210 OT Prince Tega Wanogho
7 233 DE Casey Toohill

Grade: C

It's easy for Eagles fans to be disappointed. With CeeDee Lamb within striking range, the famously aggressive Howie Roseman opted to stay put and allowed a premier wideout to fall to a division rival. Reagor addresses the team's biggest need, but he still feels like a reach. Meanwhile, the Hurts selection was among the draft's most puzzling. Roseman may want to build a "quarterback factory," but there were numerous talented prospects available that would have immediately aided a Super Bowl contender. Philadelphia uncovered a ton of value on Day 3, but it wasn't enough to compensate for the team's early woes.

Washington Redskins

Round Pick Player
1 2 DE Chase Young
3 66 WR/RB Antonio Gibson
4 108 OT Saahdiq Charles
4 142 WR Antonio Gandy-Golden
5 156 C Keith Ismael
5 162 LB Khaleke Hudson
7 216 S Kamren Curl
7 229 DE James Smith-Williams

Grade: B

Washington came away with a solid, if unspectacular, 2020 class. As the consensus top overall prospect, Young should immediately terrorize opposing blockers, while Gibson, Gandy-Golden, and the two offensive linemen help improve Dwayne Haskins' supporting cast. We especially love Gibson as a versatile weapon. Overall, the Redskins nabbed a handful of potential contributors while addressing most of their weaknesses.
