What makes a successful draft?

There's a common theory that says one can't accurately judge a draft for at least three years.

Too bad that wasn't invented in the digital age.

Each team has needs. Each team has a draft board on which they rank "draftable" players. Ideally, the team will fit their biggest need with their highest-ranked player.

Countless (and seemingly insignificant) things happen that impact who a team selects and where the team selects them. Speculation and insecurity are likely part of the process as well.

Thus, a team must stick to their preparation and scouting. Really successful teams, like the Ravens, do just that.

Baltimore entered the 2013 NFL draft with 12 picks. Because of a second-round trade with the Seahawks, the Ravens ended up making 10 picks. Of those 10 picks, it's my belief that they met every need (except for taking a tight end) while also selecting players with a high level of character who are also very skilled.

My grade for the Ravens draft so far is a B+. Here's how some other people graded the Ravens' efforts in this draft.
