2014 NFL Draft Picks: Full List of Results and Grades Following Rounds 4-7
Frank Franklin II/Associated Press

While fans get excited to see what happens in the first round, the NFL draft is not complete until all 256 picks come off the board. Only then can you truly look at how well each organization did at filling its needs.

Obviously, it takes years to truly understand the impact of each player taken in the draft. Prospects who fell to the last few rounds could end up being stars, like Tom Brady or, more recently, Richard Sherman. However, we can still look at how well each organization filled its needs while getting good value throughout the draft.

Players taken in the last few rounds can still contribute right away or be considered high-upside picks who can help out later.

Here is a complete look at results from Day 3, followed by complete grades for each team in the NFL.

NFL Draft Grades for Rounds 4-7
Team Grade Note
Dallas Cowboys A Had a lot of picks and used them well, including six on the defensive side of the ball. Ahmad Dixon is someone who has great upside despite the late pick.
New York Giants B- Andre Williams does not have a game that translates to the NFL, but the Giants got good value. Also took too long to address needs at linebacker and in secondary.
Philadelphia Eagles A Chip Kelly certainly feels comfortable taking Oregon players, picking two in the draft. Adding a speedster in Jaylen Watkins will also help.
Washington Redskins A- Did not truly address needs, but the values were great for Bashaud Breeland, Ryan Grant and especially Lache Seastrunk.
Arizona Cardinals B+ Logan Thomas is a long shot to be productive in the NFL, but he might be worth the risk.
San Francisco 49ers A+ San Francisco continues to draft "redshirt" players and get good value late the draft.
Seattle Seahawks A- Seattle knows how to find gems in late rounds and the squad did not have many needs, making this an easy day.
St. Louis Rams A E.J. Gaines represents good value, but all anyone will talk about is Michael Sam. Jeff Fisher will make sure this is not a distraction.
Chicago Bears A- There are a bunch of high-upside players in Ka'Deem Carey, Brock Vereen and even quarterback David Fales.
Detroit Lions B- Added one cornerback, but the Lions still need more help in the secondary.
Green Bay Packers B Did the Packers draft three quality receivers in this class? Yes. Do they need all of them? No.
Minnesota Vikings A David Yankey was one of the better values in the class and should start right away. The rest of the players should improve the defense.
Atlanta Falcons A Devonta Freeman, Prince Shembo and Yawin Smallwood are all likely to contribute early in their careers.
Carolina Panthers C+ Only had three picks and could have used more help on offense.
New Orleans Saints A- Vinnie Sunseri is a good long-term selection while other picks will be useful defensively.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers C+ Continued to add height, but not a lot of talent. Defense should feel slighted.
Buffalo Bills A Value was the name of the game with Seantral Henderson and Cyril Richardson. Along with Cyrus Kouandjio, could turn offensive line into a real strength going forward.
Miami Dolphins A- Small-school prospects Jordan Tripp and Matt Hazel could be valuable additions.
New England Patriots B Not an exciting draft overall, but the Patriots added some good athletes thoughout.
New York Jets A- Tajh Boyd could make things interesting down the line, but it is the three receivers who will make an early impact in New York.
Denver Broncos C Did not take advantage of only three picks, grabbing undersized players with little upside.
Kansas City Chiefs A This will be an interesting draft to look at in a few years. Aaron Murray and De'Anthony Thomas could be huge or worthless.
Oakland Raiders A- Did a good job of solidifying defense, but could have used some help at wide receiver.
San Diego Chargers A- Ryan Carrethers is a perfect fit on this team, highlighting a strong third day.
Baltimore Ravens B+ Not much spectacular, but the Ravens added depth in key areas and should be in good shape going forward.
Cincinnati Bengals B If AJ McCarron ever becomes a starter, this grade jumps way up. Otherwise, there is not much to like.
Cleveland Browns A- Only had one pick and made a great one in Pierre Desir. However, they still need a wide receiver at some point.
Pittsburgh Steelers A+ Had a few positions they needed to fill and the Steelers hit all of them with good players.
Houston Texans A+ Helped a lot of areas, but most importantly drafted a quarterback who could possibly take over the reigns.
Indianapolis Colts B- Needed help in the secondary and failed to address it despite plenty of solid options.
Jacksonville Jaguars A+ Lots of potential from the Day 3 picks, including Aaron Colvin who is recovering from torn ACL.
Tennessee Titans B+ Zack Mettenberger could end up contributing, but no cornerbacks taken.

 

Best Day 3 Drafts

San Francisco 49ers

Wit a relatively full roster, the 49ers did not have to draft for immediate need. Instead, they continued their trend of bringing in high-upside players who will hopefully make an impact down the line.

On Day 2, they started this mindset with the last pick of Round 3 by taking the injured Brandon Thomas out of Clemson. This continued on Day 3 when they selected cornerback Keith Reaser, who is also dealing with knee injuries.

Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel appreciated the pick:

Meanwhile, defensive end Aaron Lynch was another selection who should have gone higher, but character issues dropped him down. He even admitted this after being drafted in the fifth round, via Matt Maiocco of CSN:

Adding in quick slot receiver Bruce Ellington and some more defensive backs to help the depth, the 49ers should be extremely satisfied with their end of the draft. 

 

Houston Texans

USA TODAY Sports

There will be a lot of debate surrounding the Texans' plan to wait until the third day to get their quarterback, but they certainly got one with a lot of potential.

With the No. 135 picks in the draft, Houston selected Tom Savage out of Pittsburgh. This brought mixed reactions considering the player has very little game experience:

However, ESPN's Adam Schefter points out the positives as he is set to play for new his new coach:

Bleacher Report's Chris Simms even thinks of him as one of the best quarterbacks in the class:

Houston also added a bunch of SEC players who have been through tough competition and should come in to the NFL ready to play.

After a miserable season last year, the future looks bright for the Texans.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers were fortunate to see an extremely talented receiver fall to them in the first round as they were able to take Martavis Bryant with the 118th pick.

Bleacher Report's Matt Bowen describes the physical attributes of the player:

Despite being selected in the fourth round, you can expect the receiver to make an impact right away on a team that needs it. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller and Michael Felder broke down the pick:

After that, the Steelers filled some needs on the depth chart with cornerback Shaquille Richardson and tackle Wesley Johnson. Although neither player projects to be a star, they will be useful early on.

Pittsburgh came into the day with a few specific goals, and it nailed each of the selections in the final few rounds.
