2016 NFL Draft grades: What does the pick of Evan Boehm deserve?

New, comments

Arizona takes a player who fills a clear need.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have a need at center. They used their fourth round pick to fill that need in taking Missouri center Evan Boehm. He was a four-year starter at Missouri. He never missed a game. He was a team captain. He is 6-2 and 302 pounds.

He is tough. He is smart, He is the son of a coach. He played all last season with a high ankle sprain.

This was a clear "need" pick, but taking him in the fourth round was probably not a reach.

Dan Kadar had him 134th on his overall board. He went with the 128th pick.

The question is -- what grade do you give the pick? He is a solid, polished player. He isn't overly athletic, but looks like he could be a longtime starter.

Do you give the pick and A? A B? A C? It would be hard to say it would get lower than that. Vote for your grade!
