Grading the 2016 NFL First-Round Draft Picks

We are officially three games into the NFL season. While we are still ALOOOOOOOOOOOONG way from determining who was a “bust” and who was a “hero” in this year’s NFL Draft, it’s not too early to start talking about how each individual player is playing.

With numerous NFL games going on every weekend featuring HUNDREDS of NFL players smashing into each other, it can be hard for each individual fan to keep track of how a certain player is performing.

That’s what this column is for. Want to see how a certain first-rounder is performing so far this year? Pull it up and discuss it with your friends. It’s that simple.

So, with no further distractions. This is how every single first-round draft pick in the 2016 NFL Draft has performed thus far…..
