With the 2019 NFL Draft in the books, it is only fair to dish out some awards for a job well done by a number of teams across the NFL. It also doesn’t hurt to look at which teams may have made regrettable picks.

Pass along your thoughts on these awards and the 2019 NFL Draft. I may put together a mail bag that answers questions/comments sent via email [email protected] or on Twitter @draftcampbell.





Best Trade: Washington Redskins: Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State
This was a tough decision between the Eagles jumping the Texans to get the draft’s best pass-blocking left tackle, Andre Dillard, or the Redskins landing Sweat. I chose Sweat because he was a legit top-10 pick while Dillard was not held in as high of regard. Sweat was one of the top edge rushers in the SEC over the past two years, displaying a dynamite skill set of speed, length, and some natural strength. Sweat could form a lethal defensive line with Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne and Ryan Kerrigan. Landing Sweat with the 26th-overall pick was a great value for the Redskins, as he could be their feature edge rusher for a decade with double-digit sack production on an annual basis.

Honorable Mentions: Philadelphia Eagles trade-up for Andre Dillard, Baltimore Ravens trade-down for Marquise Brown and Green Bay Packers trade-up for Darnell Savage.

2017 Winner: Tre’Davious White, Bills
2016 Winner: Myles Jack, Jaguars
2015 Winner: Maxx Williams, Ravens
2014 Winner: Louis Nix, Texans
2013 Winner: Alec Ogletree, Rams
2012 Winner: Justin Blackmon, Jaguars
