There has been alot of different opinions on the relative success of certain teams drafts, and of course its not easy to accurately gauge how effective these players are going to be at such an early stage.

Having said that ESPN did a consensus of the grades given out by 8 draft 'experts' in order to see what teams averaged out the best.

Here is the list in order of best to worst.

1. Cardinals
2. 49ers
3. Saints
4. Patriots
= Eagles
= Broncos
7. Jets
8. Ravens
= Browns
= Titans
11. Packers
= Panthers
13. Steelers
14. Rams
15. Lions
= Seahawks
= Jaguars
= Raiders
19. Cowboys
= Texans
21. Dolphins
22. Chargers
23. Giants
= Buccaneers
= Falcons
= Bengals
= Colts
= Chiefs
29. Bills
30. Vikings
31. Bears
32. Redskins

The usual suspects are in the top half - Baltimore, New England, Pittsburgh and Philly.

And by the same token, in the bottom half we have the Cincy, Washington and Minnesota.
