2012 NFL Draft Grades: Analyzing The NFC East [VIDEO]

How did the New York Giants fare in the 2012 NFL Draft in comparison to the other three teams in the NFC East. Well, let's look at NFL Draft grades for team. Below you will find a video review from SB Nation football analysts. Before we get to that, though, some quick thoughts on each team.

New York Giants -- Most analysts seem unsure about the Giants' selection of Virginia Tech running back David Wilson with the 32nd overall pick at the end of Round 1. Reality, though, is Wilson was the best running back available at New York's biggest position of need. The pick of LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle at the end of the second round (63rd) has drawn raves. In the third round, cornerback Jayron Hosley was a value pick. The Giants two fourth-round selections, Cincinnati tight end Adrien Robinson and Auburn offensive tackle Brandon Mosley are intriguing. [Full List of Picks]

Philadelphia Eagles -- The Eagles have been widely praised. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (Round 1), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (Round 2) and defensive end Vinny Curry (Round 3) all look like exceptional picks. Cornerback Brandon Boykin is great value in Round 4. Huge defensive upgrade for Philly. [Full List Of Picks]

Dallas Cowboys -- Made an excellent first-round move, trading up to get LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne. Second-round pick Tyron Crawford, a defensive end, is intriguing. Are there any other impact players here? Not sure. [Full List Of Picks]

Washington Redskins -- This is why the down-trodden Redskins have been, and will probably continue to be down-trodden. Robert Griffin III in the first round was the pick Washington had to make, and he should be terrific. But, why quarterback Kirk Cousins of Michigan State in the fourth round, a guy you hope will never play? And third-round pick Josh LeRibeus was seen as late-round value by most analysts.
