Which teams got "A's" and which teams flunked?

New England Patriots
The Patriots were getting old, and needed to add to their depth. They did so by getting four second round picks and two third rounders.
Picks: S Patrick Chung DT Ron Brace CB Darius Butler OT Sebastian Vollmer WR Brandon LB Tyrone McKenzie G Rich Ohrnberger C George Bussey DT Myron Pryor LS Jacob Ingram WR Julian Edelman DT Darryl Richard
The Jets got a potential starting QB in Sanchez, we shall see if he can handle the NY pressure.
Picks: QB Mark Sanchez, RB Shonn Greene G Matt Slauson
The Ravens got themeselves an excellent OT in Oher and couple him with Jared Gaither and the Ravens have solidified their offensive line.
Picks: OT Michael Oher, DE/LB Paul Kruger CB Lardarius Webb LB Jason Phillips TE Davon Drew RB Cedric Peerman
OT Britton may come in and start right away. They still have receivers issues, with Torry Holt now their main weapon.
Picks: OT Eugene Monroe, OT Eben Britton DT Terrance Knighton CB Derek Cox WR Mike Thomas WR Jarett Dillard TE Zach Miller RB Rashad Jennings WR Tiquan Underwood
Kansas City Chiefs
Picks: DE Tyson Jackson DT Alex Magee CB Donald Washington OL Colin Brown WR Quentin Lawrence, RB Javarris Williams TE Jake O’Connell K Ryan Succop
Getting Cassel seems to be a great move, but I am a bit wary at seeing how well he will do without having the Belichick "system" behind him. Time will tell.
DE Jackson is a Richard Seymore clone, and should provide run stuffing capabilities.
Picks: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey S Michael Mitchell DE Matt Shaughnessy WR Louis Murphy DE Slade Norris DE Stryker Sulak TE Brandon Myers
No big surprise here. Raiders continue to draft speedy WR's but nobody to block or open holes. When will Al Davis learn that you win with your Offensive and Defensive lines.
