After two days and 255 NFL draft picks, now's the time to evaluate what each team accomplished in New York.

The group of clear winners includes last year's NFC champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys. Those smarting a little as they prepare for minicamp include the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs.

How all this translates onto the field remains to be seen but for now the guessing and second-guessing are beginning.
