Best Pick: I like third-round receiver Josh Huff (above). He is a guy who will come in and know the offense, having played in it at Oregon.

Questionable move: Waiting until the fourth round to address corner. I like the guy they took there in Jaylen Watkins, so that could work out.

Third-day gem: Fifth-round defensive tackle Taylor Hart will add some depth to the defensive. He was a productive player at Oregon and Chip Kelly knows him well.

Analysis: The Eagles passed on a receiver in the first round to take pass rusher Marcus Smith because the pass rushers were a thin group. That made sense. They did take two receivers in round two and three to make it work.

Grade: B+

New York Giants

Best Pick: I like third-round defensive tackle Jay Bromley from Syracuse. He fills a major need inside.

Questionable move: Some will say it’s taking a receiver in Odell Beckham in the first round, but I understand it. They need help for Eli Manning.

Third-day gem: Seventh-round corner Bennett Jackson is a player who could make the roster and contribute on special teams.

Analysis: The selection of Beckham with the 12th pick was a bit of surprise to some, but they need to free up Victor Cruz from the doubles. He will. Second-round pick Weston Richburg will compete to start at center.

Grade: C+

Dallas Cowboys

Best Pick: Trading up in the second round to take defensive end Demarcus Lawrence. They had to get a pass rusher.

Questionable move: Waiting until the seventh round to get secondary help.

Third-day gem: Fifth-round receiver Devin Street put up some big numbers at Pittsburgh He is a tall receiver.

Analysis: The Cowboys deserve credit for not getting caught up in Johnny Manziel fever to take guard Zack Martin. I liked that decision. They followed it up with a good move to get Lawrence.

Grade: B

Washington Redskins

Best Pick: I think they got great value in the third round by drafting tackle Morgan Moses from Virginia. Bet he starts at some point as a rookie at right tackle.

Questionable move: I like Trent Murphy as a player, but taking him with their first pick in the second round is a bit questionable

Third-day gem: Fourth-round corner Bashaud Breeland will be a starter in a year or so and could help in the nickel right away.

Analysis: For not having a first-round pick — traded away in the Robert Griffin III deal — the Redskins bounced back and a did a solid job with their seven picks. There are some intriguing players in their group and they addressed some needs.

Grade: B-
