Third Round: Jordan Elliott

Grade: F

Jordan Elliot’s grade is well deserved because Elliot did absolutely nothing through the regular season. No sacks, no tackles-for-a-loss, no pass deflections, no turnovers, no nothing. He could’ve been replaced and the team wouldn’t have lost any production.

Third Round: Jacob Phillips

Grade: D+

Who would’ve thought Mack Wilson would’ve been the disaster that he was? Jacob Phillips didn’t get much done, as injuries delayed him, but he did play better than those on the roster. Phillips probably isn’t a long-term answer but he at least showed enough to warrant consideration during the upcoming 2021 training camp.

Fourth Round: Harrison Bryant

Grade: C

Harrison Bryant looked great at times, and other times he looked out-matched. That’s about what you expect with a fourth-round pick. Growing pains. Bryant did post 238 yards, which was on par with Cole Kmet, a player taken in the second round by the Bears. If the team just ran sets with Bryant, they’d be in trouble but allowing him to come along next to Austin Hooper and even David Njoku was a wise decision. He needs to improve his blocking significantly, as well as becoming a more consistent playmaker.
