2016 NFL Draft Recap/New Depth Charts: REBUILDING TEAMS

Instead of doing pointless "draft grades" I just plugged in key draft picks to see how they fit on their new team

Here is my color code:

Has a good chance to be a starter by next season 
Quality depth 
Need not addressed in the draft 
Key 2017 Unrestricted Free Agent 


Vegas odds project them to win 7.5 games or less
All of these teams either have at least one of the following: 
-A rookie QB
-A 2nd year QB 
-A new Head Coach 

Head Coach/GM: Jeff Fisher/Les Snead
Offensive Coordinator/Style/Blocking Scheme:
Rob Boras (new)/Ball Control-Vertical/Power Man
Defensive Coordinator/Base Scheme and Coverage:
Gregg Williams/4-3 Man
Emerging Offensive Star: Todd Gurley-RB
Defensive Stars: Aaron Donald-DT and Robert Quinn-DE
Donald deserves two clips

RT:  Robby Havenstein-Young/2015 2nd RD
OT/G: Andrew Donnal-Young/2014 4th RD
Todd Gurley-Young/2015 1st RD/Good rookie year

QB: They traded to #1 to select Jared Goff or Carson Wentz 
#1 WR:  The Rams have a bunch of average players and lack a true go to guy. Britt is solid, but Austin has been a major bust.
DB Depth: They lost Janoris Jenkins and Rodney McLeod in Free Agency,
O Line Depth:  Coach Fisher wants powerful guys that can run block

RG: Brandon Brooks-Average/New

Isaac Seumalo
Halapoulivaati Vaitai
Darren Sproles-Below Average
Ryan Mathews: Below Average
Wendell Smallwood

RB: The DeMarco Murray of 2014 that dominated the league in Dallas was not the same guy last year in Philly. It was just a bad fit and Eagles' management saw this and dealt him to Tennessee. They traded up with Miami to get to #8. Ezekiel Elliot could be the target there.
CB: With the addition of McLeod, the Eagles may have the best safety duo in the league, however they still need more help at corner. 
LB Upgrades: The entire core is full of players that are average at best
Backup QB:  This Sam Bradford is solid when healthy, but a young backup is needed.

Kevin Pamphile-Young/2014 5th RD
Doug Martin-All Pro in 2015/Average and Injured before that
Charles Sims-Young/2014 3rd RD

Multiple DB's:  In a division with Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees you need to have multiple guys that can cover. As of now, they don't have a single above average player in their secondary.
Pass Rusher: Signing Ayers was a smart move but they need another guy to put pressure on the signal callers listed above.
O-Line: Recently retired Logan Mankins was their best lineman last year. Smith and Marpet both struggled as rookies. More depth and competition is needed.
WR: Evans is good, but Jackson is 33 and no other WR had more than 27 receptions in 2015.

CB:  This unit needs a lot of help. We should expect them to draft at least two corners in the first four rounds.
C/OG:  They had the worst guard duo in the NFL last year
LB Depth:  They need more athletes here
Speed/scat RB:  Ajayi has nice size but he can't carry the load alone
Young Pass Rusher: They have two good pass rushers in Cameron Wake and Mario Williams. However Wake is 34 and Williams is 31

RT:  Jack Conklin
T/G: Byron Bell-Below Average
C/G: Ben Jones-Average
Demarco Murray-Elite/New
Derrick Henry 
FB: Jalston Fowler-Young/2015 4th RD

O-Line: They must protect franchise QB Marcus Mariota. Lewan and Warmack are good but the rest of the line needs work. They may want to draft a LT and move Lewan to RT.
CB: The current group is made up of several guys that would be #3 corners on most teams.
OLB/Pass Rusher: Casey is the best pass rusher on the team. They need a young player to generate a better pass rush from the outside.
ILB Depth: With all those picks, don't be surprised if the Titans take a risk and draft Jaylon Smith, It could pay off huge in the long run.
