Washington Redskins, DOWN: The Redskins addressed some of their needs, but they didn't do anything in the draft to help keep their young star, Robert Griffin III, safe. If he gets banged up again, we'll be looking back at the draft wondering why the Redskins didn't spend the farm protecting one of the most electric players in football.
New York Giants, UP: Giants beefed up both sides of the ball with additions to both their lines. In addition, they nabbed Ryan Nassib for a cheap fourth round pick. That provides some insurance and an understudy for Eli Manning. It wasn't a home run draft for the Giants, but the word "solid" comes to mind.
Dallas Cowboys, TANKING: The Cowboys spent their early picks of the draft adding players to positions of strength. While the weapons they added will benefit Tony Romo, the rest of the team, and its fanbase, have to feel neglected by what has to be called a poor draft.
Philadelphia Eagles, UP: The Eagles got a very good tackle to start their draft off, but the real story-line move was the Eagles trading with Jacksonville to move to the top of the fourth round, using the pick on former USC quarterback Matt Barkley. Barkley won't play much for some time, but the thought is he'll provide insurance for Vick in a similar way Nassib will for Eli Manning. In addition, the Eagles added some players that should turn into core players. The future looks good in Philly.
