I would say it was the Bears.  They have been looking for a QB since McMahon.  I think Fields is going to be great. 

I’ll say this truth. Pats taking Fields would have made me sh*t my pants vs sigh of relief w Jones. 

Best: Vikings, Ravens, Jets Worst: Jags: have a cheap, undrafted rookie from last year who ran for 1200 yards and take Etienne with 2nd pick when they have as many holes as us Miami: Ou

Bears had by far the worst move. They’re done for a decade. Absolute debacle. 

The Raiders were a disaster too.

Best moves were either the Jets being aggressive to build the line or the Pats staying put and getting their guy.

Oh, its the trade I liked, not their ultimate draft pick.

 

To move up nine spots, the Bears had to send their a 2022 first-round pick, a 2021 fifth-round pick and a 2022 fourth-round pick to New York. On top of that, the Giants also got Chicago's 20th overall pick in this year's draft. It was a monstrous haul for Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who's not known for trading back.

The giants are going to suck next year.  They loaded up on all these WRs but the OL sucks and Jones doesn’t look comfortable in Judge’s offense

Might seem a bit obvious but Atlanta selecting Pitts was a great "move" - there were lots of suggestions that they'd take a future QB, trade down, take OL, but they stayed put and took the guy who could be the best overall player. Didn't overthink it / try to get cute.

That was a great move.  Falcons who are in cap hell can now trade Julio Jones.  Pitts is a beast

Giants and Bears both came out winners in that one.

That trade made big sense for both teams.  Don’t love toney as a wr, he’s more of a gadget guy but he is a weapon.  It was a no brainer for the bears though.

Yup.  I feel like even when Giants get extra picks they make some real head scratching selections

Best moves - Vikings, Chargers, Browns 

Worst moves - Raiders (again), Packers (again), Saints, Bills, Dolphins at 18, Patriots, Broncos, lots actually in the latter part of the first round.

With hindsight, or maybe foresight, only the Eagles came out ahead on the three-way trade. Did the 49ers really need to move up that far for Lance? And Miami did well initially in a trading down but lost nearly all of that value, by having to settle for Waddle at 6.

Supposedly Shanahan wanted Jones, the scouting dept wanted Lance, scouting dept won because now they keep Jimmy G another year while Lance can sit and learn

I thought they dropped too far (11 to 20) and missed out on a lot of talent at positions of need (OL and LB/EDGE) but if they knew they were going WR, you can question which WR but they didn't miss out on anyone between 11 and 20.
It has to be Minnesota who got two thirds and still got the guy they wanted. 
You could argue that the Giants still got the guy they wanted too and got a whole lot more. If they wanted EDGE all were still available at 11 so they were OK not going EDGE, it looks to me like they knew they were going WR. Once Smith went off the board at 10 they may have had similar grades on a Toney/Bateman etc. but still ended up having their pick of all remaining WR at 11 down at 20.

I’d say the Vikings probably had the best 1st round. Darrisaw would have made sense with their original pick.

I also love what we did. Vera-Tucker is going to be a stud.

Mac Jones to the Pats, Paye to the Colts and Newsome to the Browns were excellent picks.

I don’t like what the Saints, WFT, Panthers and Denver did.

Best move Zach Wilson NY Jets.  Worst move Atlanta not taking FIelds and paying a TE no. 4 slotted money for  4 years.  (Love Pitts but I'm not paying him 4 slot money when their are QB's and LT on the board)

Also have to wonder what SF was thinking.  The trade down for Lance seems like an epic reach.  Clearly they were in full buyers remorse mode on Jones and tried to get Rodgers.   I can't believe they were locked in on Lance when they gave up all that draft capital.  

Ryan has a few years left in him and Fields sucks

They had better be right this time.  After the Bears nightmare trade-up for one spot to get a worse bust than Darnold in Trubisky, now they roll the dice on Fields.

Best move was a non move. Pats get Jones.

Watched everyone including the Jets overthink it, and wound up with arguably the 2nd best QB on the board. Was beyond pissed last night,but  hope  I'm wrong.

Arguably the 3rd best who in a normal draft is a 2nd day pick.

I honestly think Mac Jones was their consolation prize, they’d have taken AVT to replace Thuney.

Well, we shall see. 

We saw last night.  SF took a project over him and Chicago took Fields over him.   Denver, Atlanta and Carolina passed.   Mac Jones might have fallen into the 2nd round if BB didn't reach for him.
