NFL Draft grades are a weekly staple in the world of sports. This data set can give you an idea on which teams had success and which ones flopped during the NFL draft.

The “nfl draft grades 2022 team” is a list of the final grade point averages for all 32 NFL teams.

Sportscating.com graded all 32 NFL clubs in real time during the 2022 NFL Draft. We collected all the grades and came up with a weighted average for each team’s 2022 draft class once choice No. 262 (Iowa State QB Brock Purdy to the San Francisco 49ers) was in the books, with the impact of each pick reducing as the rounds advanced.

The final GPA for each squad is shown below. 

New England Patriots (32nd) 

71.86 grade point average

Chasen Hines, G, LSU, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Tyquan Thornton, WR, Baylor, F, is the lowest-graded choice.

The number of picks is ten.

To say the least, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots had a “Strange” draft. The Patriots’ first two draft selections, guard Curtis Strange and wide receiver Tyquan Thornton, were both multi-round fliers. Belichick then chose two running backs (a position of strength on the team) and quarterback Bailey Zappe over a number of higher-rated quarterbacks. Although it was a bit of a puzzle, many people will (rightfully) give Belichick the benefit of the doubt. 

The Dallas Cowboys are ranked 31st in the NFL. 

74.17 grade point average

Damone Clark, LB, LSU, A, is the highest rated choice.

Jake Ferguson, TE, Wisconsin, C+, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 9

Jerry Jones and his team had a rather dull draft this year. The Cowboys mostly selected offensive linemen and defensive linemen. While the choices may not have piqued Dallas fans’ interest, the least attractive Jones drafts often turn out to be the most successful in the long term. 

Cleveland Browns (#30) 

67.8 grade point average

Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma, A, is the highest-graded choice.

Cade York, K, LSU, D, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 9

Following the Deshaun Watson deal, the Cleveland Browns didn’t make a selection until No. 68, and the choices after that were underwhelming. The team’s ultimate draft grade point average was harmed by selecting a kicker in the fourth round, a running back in the fifth, and a wide receiver in the sixth.

San Francisco 49ers (No. 29) 

78.5 on a scale of one to ten.

Drake Jackson, DE, USC, B, is the highest rated choice.

Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, LSU, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 9

Despite not having a first-round selection after last year’s trade-up for Trey Lance, the San Francisco 49ers performed well in this draft. It’s a good pick if Deebo Samuel sticks with the squad and helps this season. Not receiving a first-round pick this year will be a huge mistake if the disgruntled wideout pushes his way out or the controversy continues into the next season. 

Los Angeles Rams (28). 

78.5 on a scale of one to ten.3

Daniel Hardy, DE, Montana State, B+, is the highest rated choice.

Cobie Durant, CB, South Carolina State, C, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

“F those selections,” as the reigning Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams say. They’d rather deal proven talents for draft selections. That’s why the Rams had a terrible selection, and no one in the team’s opulent draft room seemed to mind. 

Chicago Bears (#27) 

79.34 grade point average

Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington, B+, is the highest rated choice.

Doug Kramer, C, Illinois, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 11

The Chicago Bears may not have had a first-round selection, but that isn’t the reason for their NFL draft grade point average. The Bears acquired some great secondary assistance, but a bunch of backup-level linemen in the late rounds isn’t doing Justin Fields any favors, as all NFL fans have seen what happens when a club doesn’t support their highly-drafted QB. 

The Houston Texans are ranked 26th in the NFL. 

79.53 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Austin Deculus, OT, LSU, D, is the lowest-graded choice.

Number of selections: 9

With Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner on the board, the Houston Texans went after Derek Stingley Jr. However, Baylor safety Jalen Pitre was a steal in the early second round. This one-step ahead, one-step back scenario encapsulates the Texans’ NFL draft in 2022, and maybe the whole organization.

The New York Giants are ranked number 25 in the NFL. 

80.08 grade point average

Evan Neal, OT, Alabama, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 11

The Giants smashed their first two draft selections (and probably deserve better than a B for Kayvon Thibodeaux upon further reflection). Wan’Dale Robinson, on the other hand, seems to be Kadarius Toney 2.0, and the new administration played it safe, selecting low-celling backups in the late rounds rather than taking risks on higher-potential players, as a 4-13 club should. 

Buccaneers of Tampa Bay, No. 24  

80.27 grade point average

Logan Hall, DE, Houston, B+, is the highest rated choice.

Ko Kieft, TE, Minnesota, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

Tampa Bay made a solid move by trading out of the first round, but these NFL draft grades only reflect the players selected. The problem with the Bucs’ selections is that some of them are long-term projects, which conflicts with the team’s Tom Brady-related Super Bowl window, which will only last a year or two at best. 

The Denver Broncos are ranked 23rd in the NFL. 

81.26 grade point average

Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA, is the highest-graded choice.

Montrell Washington, WR, Samford, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 9

No one will be upset with these draft ratings since the Denver Broncos traded their choices for Russell Wilson this year. The choices themselves were a good balance of offense and defense that will assist now and in the future. There were no game-changers, but neither was there a complete waste of time. 

Minnesota Vikings (22nd) 

81.36 grade point average

Lewis Cine, S, Georgia is the highest ranked choice.

Ed Ingram, OG, LSU, is the lowest-graded choice.

The number of picks is ten.

While trading back is normally a good idea, the Minnesota Vikings appeared to go overboard in 2022, and their draft grade suffered as a result. With their first two choices, they were able to secure some much-needed secondary aid. However, new general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah chose guard Ed Ingram in the late second round and passed on Nakobe Dean in the first round for Brian Asamoah, which might come back to bite him. 

The Raiders of Las Vegas are ranked 21st in the NFL. 

81.83 is the grade point average.

Dylan Parham, OG, Memphis, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Brittain Brown, RB, UCLA, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is six.

The Las Vegas Raiders, who hosted this year’s draft, only had six picks and didn’t sign a new player until No. 90. In modern NFL draft grading system, that affects clubs, but the Raiders made the best of the selections they had. The club received fantastic value for their selection, and that’s what a team needs to do when they only have a few draft-day bullets. 

Los Angeles Chargers (#20) 

82.25 grade point average

Jamaree Salyer, G, Georgia, A-, is the highest rated choice.

JT Woods, S, Baylor, C+, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

The Los Angeles Chargers are another club that has accomplished a lot without a lot of draft selections. Zion Johnson and Jamaree Salyer, both offensive linemen, could immediately assist strengthen Justin Herbert’s protection. So, although the draft wasn’t very exciting, it was unquestionably a victory for the Bolts. 

Green Bay Packers (19.) 

82.38 grade point average

Zach Tom, OT, Wake Forest, A, is the highest rated choice.

Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia, D, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 11

The Green Bay Packers finished in the middle of these final NFL draft grade point averages after making both good and bad choices. To aid Aaron Rodgers, the club made value choices later in the draft, which is fantastic. They might have gotten a linebacker in the mold of Quay Walker later, and Devote Wyatt poses a big danger due to his off-field concerns.  

Arizona Cardinals (#18) 

82.77 grade point average

Cameron Thomas, EDGE, San Diego State, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Keontay Ingram, RB, USC, C, is the lowest-graded choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

On draft day, the Arizona Cardinals made some terrific and some not-so-good decisions. However, depending on how excellent of a player Marquise “Hollywood” Brown is, the team’s total rating for the weekend will most certainly go up or down dramatically. 

Tennessee Titans (#17) 

82.92 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas, A, is the highest-graded choice.

Theo Jackson, S, Tennessee, is the lowest ranked choice.

Number of selections: 9

The Tennessee Titans, like the Cardinals, had a good weekend, but the players chosen alone will not tell the tale of the franchise’s NFL draft in 2022. The success or failure of this class is determined on A.J. Brown’s performance in Philadelphia, if Treylon Burks grows into Brown 2.0 as expected, and whether Malik Willis develops into a franchise quarterback. If the second and third eventualities come true, this draft will get an A+++. 

16. Commanders in Washington 

83.27 grade point average

Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State (A-), is the highest-graded choice.

Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes, Christian Holmes

The total number of selections is eight.

The Washington Commanders had an exceptionally (and rather unexpectedly) successful NFL draft in 2022. The one big blunder was taking defensive line depth in the second round, which seems to be unnecessary. Wideout Jahan Dotson is a choice that will assist both now and in the future, and if they hit on QB Sam Howell with a fourth-round pick, like the Commanders above and the Falcons and Panthers below, this draft will be a home run. 

Atlanta Falcons (#15) 

83.37 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Drake London, WR, USC, A, is the highest-graded choice.

Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State, C, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

For this Atlanta Falcons class, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This might be a top 10 class if you like sleepers like DE Arnold Ebiketie, LB Troy Anderson, and RB Tyler Allgeier, and/or believe Desmond Ridder was a value in Round 4. Even though some of these picks received poor live draft evaluations, this is still a strong group of talents with a lot of potential. 

Carolina Panthers (14). 

84.38 grade point average

Ikem Ekwonu, OT, NC State, A, is the highest rated choice.

Brandon Smith, LB, Penn State, C, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is six.

With DE Amaré Barno, OL Cade Mays, and CB Kalon Barnes, the Carolina Panthers nailed their first pick, tackle Ickey Ekwonu, and smashed their last three picks, DE Amaré Barno, OL Cade Mays, and CB Kalon Barnes. In the meanwhile, the club signed a mediocre Penn State LB and took a chance on QB Matt Corral. Overall, not bad with just six selections. 

Philadelphia Eagles (13). 

84.59 is the grade point average.

Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia, A, is the highest rated choice.

Grant Calcaterra, TE, SMU, is the lowest-graded choice.

Number of selections: 5

Even if A.J Brown isn’t included in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2022 NFL draft ratings, the team still had a strong draft. The weekend would have been a huge triumph even if their whole draft comprised of just Georgia Bulldogs defenders Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean. 

Steelers of Pittsburgh, No. 12 

85.12 grade point average

Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh, D, is the highest-graded choice.

George Pickens, WR, Georgia, A+, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 7

The Pittsburgh Steelers seemed to recall one crucial truth after making the huge error of selecting a low-ceiling quarterback in the first round: they are the Pittsburgh Steelers. Following the Kenny Pickett disaster, the franchise took off A grade after A grade (as they normally do). Despite the first-round blunder, they have a respectable draft rating. 

Miami Dolphins (11th) 

85.18 grade point average

Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia, B+, is the highest rated choice.

Cameron Goode, LB, California, C+, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is four.

The Miami Dolphins take home the honor for doing the most with the least amount of resources. The organization only chose four guys, but they received a lot of bang for their buck with each of them. Tyreek Hill was the actual prize this draft season, so this draft grade is simply frosting on the cake. 

Bengals of Cincinnati, No. 10 

85.27 grade point average

Daxton Hill, S, Michigan, A-, is the highest rated choice.

Cordell Volson, OT, North Dakota State, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is six.

The Bengals, the defending AFC champions, didn’t accomplish anything particularly exciting. They just did not “Bungles” the selection as in previous years. Mike Brown and the rest of the team kept to the plan, addressed holes in the secondary and on the offensive lines, and ended up with an exceptionally high draft rating. 

New Orleans Saints, No. 9 

86.08 grade point average

Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State (A-) is the highest rated choice.

Jordan Jackson, DT, Air Force, New Orleans Saints, lowest rated selection

Number of selections: 5

When a team’s lowest draft rating is a B- with the 194th selection in the draft, it’s clear that they’re on the right track. The lack of a quarterback and the selection of OL Trevor Penning at No. 19 are divisive selections, but if you agree with them, there’s basically nothing to criticize about the New Orleans Saints draft this year. 

Buffalo Bills (#8)

 86.18 grade point average

Matt Araiza, P, San Diego State, A+, is the highest rated choice.

Terrel Bernard, LB, Baylor, is the lowest-graded choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

Despite having one of the most comprehensive rosters in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills were able to satisfy holes while still gaining value. They even have the Punt God, who will work marvels in the weather of Western New York. The Bills are also victors in this year’s draft since they improved their secondary, linebacking corps, and added two weapons for Josh Allen. 

Indianapolis Colts, No. 7 

86.79 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati, was the highest-graded choice.

Andrew Ogletree, TE, Youngstown State, is the lowest-graded choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

When it mattered most, the Indianapolis Colts nailed the draft. GM Chris Ballard addressed three big areas of need with the franchise’s first three choices, all of which have unexpectedly high possibilities. The wheels did come off a bit at the conclusion of the draft, but that’s not a big deal. 

Jacksonville Jaguars, No. 6 

86.93 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah, A, is the highest-graded choice.

Snoop Conner, RB, Ole Miss, is the lowest-graded choice.

Number of selections: 7

Another club that had a divisive draft weekend was the Jacksonville Jaguars. GM Trent Baalke’s preference of measurable over production and the benefit of moving back into the first round for an off-ball linebacker are reflected in the live draft grades here. A more negative assessment of the Jaguars’ draft suggests they could have done more to assist Trevor Lawrence and made better first-round decisions, but if Travon Walker becomes a star, all of that will be forgotten. 

Seattle Seahawks, No. 5 

87.08 grade point average

Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State, A, is the highest rated choice.

Dareke Young, WR, Lenoir-Rhyne, C+, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 9

At every point in this draft, the Seattle Seahawks seemed to make the right option. They may have been tempted to go for win-now guys or a mediocre quarterback prospect, but the organization never lost sight of the long-term aim. Plus, the lowest draft rating goes to a seventh-round pick who may be the next Terrell Owens. That’s quite impressive. 

New York Jets, No. 4 

87.45 grade point average

Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner, CB, Cincinnati, AFC (highest rated choice)

Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State, C Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State, C Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State, C Jeremy Ruckert,

Number of selections: 7

Reasonable draft analysts may argue that the New York Jets grabbed the best cornerback, wide receiver, running back, and tight end in the draft, as well as a top-five pass rusher and tight end. Even if some of it is right when things settle out, the Jets have sabotaged this process. And, unlike other organizations (see at you, Bears and Jaguars), Gang Green put Zach Wilson’s success first, earning him a high draft rating. 

3. Lions of Detroit 

87.5 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan, A, is the highest rated choice.

Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State, C, is the lowest rated choice.

The total number of selections is eight.

In his first press conference, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell famously said that he wanted “knee-biters,” and now he has a defense full of them. In this draft, no club executed a cohesive plan better than the Lions. Over the course of three days, they built what should be a respectable (if not excellent) defense, and in Jameson Williams, they may have gotten the best long-term value at WR. The squad is still without a quarterback, but once they do, they’ll be a force to be reckoned with. 

Baltimore Ravens, No. 2 

88.22 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

Travis Jones, DT, Connecticut, A+, is the highest rated choice.

Isaiah Likely, TE, Coastal Carolina, C-, is the lowest rated choice.

Number of selections: 11

The most dull and predictable statement in each draft grade report over the previous two decades is this: The Baltimore Ravens nailed the [insert year here] NFL draft yet again. In S Kyle Hamilton and C Tyler Linderbaum, the Ravens may have selected the two most certain-fire winners in the whole draft, yet none of them received the top rating. In this draft, the franchise received a large number of selections and nailed virtually all of them. If you think that Ravens GM Eric DeCosta also fleeced the Cardinals by selling “Hollywood” Brown for a higher selection than he was chosen with, the Ravens comfortably won the weekend. 

1. The Chiefs of Kansas City 

Final NFL draft grade point averages for all 32 teams

Final NFL draft grade point averages for all 32 teams All 32 NFL clubs’ final draft grade point averages | Mike Calendrillo; Sportscasting

89.29 percentile on a scale of one to ten.

George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue, A, is the highest rated choice.

Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State, C+, is the lowest rated choice.

The number of picks is ten.

The Kansas City Chiefs have the highest 2022 NFL draft grade point average on Sportcasting’s final report card, indicating that the league’s talent-rich rosters are only growing wealthier. The Chiefs recruited ten prospects, all of whom have a chance to make the team. Except for the quarterback, they showed affection to every position group on the squad. However, in a sense, this means Patrick Mahomes received the most love of all. And backing a franchise signal-caller like that is how you create a dynasty, not simply a champion.
