Draft Grade: A Final Piece
There are some question marks with this draft, but because they added a final super elite prospect to their defensive line, that is enough to give it passing marks.
Bosa was the pick all along, and should have been. They now have a loaded defensive line, and already have their QB in place. That right there is enough to build a team around.
In such a deep WR class, going for two with the next couple of picks was probably not a great allocation of resources. Perhaps they are thinking of Hurd as more a RB that also catches a lot of balls, which would help clarify that decision.
Kaden Smith feels like a “Stanford” pick by the GM. He just didn’t stand out in any way as an NFL prospect, and that was the general opinion that was formed during the draft process.
