Using a unique grading system based on my big board and needs list, I have come up with a simple way of comparing the picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Kevin C. Cox

How I rate a draft pick may not matter to you, but I think it is a fairly effective system. It is a 10-point system based on 50% talent and 50% need. For example, the Jaguars got my top rated player (Luke Joeckel) which earned them a five in the talent column, but they already have a solid left tackle so I have to assume that this is a pick ends up upgrading the right tackle position which is only a middling need so I gave them a three in the need column. Put them together and they end up only scoring an eight in my system.

This system doesn’t include the value of a trade, it is just based on a the player’s talent and fit with an organization.

Final Grade Chart:

10:Great pick, fulfills a huge need with a great player

9-8: You either had a huge need to fill or you added very good value

7-0: You must have over valued a player and taken him at a place that you are not absolutely desperate at.

This list is how everyone was ranked in round 1.
