      a baseball player wearing a helmet? Provided by USA Today Sports Media Group LLC We won’t know which first-round selections in the NFL draft will be busts or stars for at least several seasons. But the teams who excel most in the draft prioritize talent and value with their selections. The problem is not all teams can win the draft.

      Here are the five most questionable picks of the first round of Thursday night’s NFL draft.

      Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell to the Oakland Raiders at No. 4

      Ferrell was a productive player.?He’s an excellent fit as a 4-3 defensive end and should be a solid player for coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock. But the Raiders entered the draft with three first-round selections and?even more holes to fill on their roster. The draft is all about value, so let’s throw out a hypothetical. Perhaps Ferrell wouldn’t have been available when they were due to pick next at No. 24. But since they owned the No. 27 pick as well, they potentially could’ve packaged some of their selections to move up into the middle of the first round to ensure they would have gotten Ferrell. So with the No. 4 pick, they could’ve potentially drafted a blue-chip player – maybe even another edge rusher like Josh Allen out of Kentucky, who went to the Jaguars at No. 7.

      Michigan edge rusher Rashan Gary to the Green Bay Packers at No. 12

      This is one of those draft picks that was made more because of potential than production or need. Gary has that size-speed-strength trinity general managers always seek. And eventually, he could blossom into a dangerous pass rusher. But for that to happen, he’ll need to refine his techniques to beat offensive linemen in the NFL. The good news is that Green Bay signed Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith in free agency, so there’s no real urgency for Gary to step in and produce right away. But for a team with quite a few holes, No. 12 may have been a bit early for a project.

      Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence to the New York Giants at No. 17

      Some may want to criticize the Giants for taking Duke passer Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall, but this selection is even more baffling. This was the pick the team acquired in the trade with Cleveland for star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Like Ferrell, Lawrence is a fine and productive player. But it’s tough to swallow a team trading its best player – and arguably a generational talent – for a run-stuffing defensive tackle. Not only that, but this is the same team that traded away nose tackle Damon Harrison – one of the top players at the position in the NFL – in October?2018. So after trading away Beckham, they used that pick to take … a player they can only hope will eventually turn into a talent like Harrison.

      Iowa tight end Noah Fant to the Denver Broncos at No. 20

      Denver did the smart thing to trade down from No. 10 and acquire more draft capital. And the Broncos?even selected a decent player at a position of need. But this is questionable because it doesn’t solve the biggest issue that has plagued general manager John Elway and the Broncos for years: finding and developing a future franchise quarterback. Perhaps the Broncos didn’t love either Dwayne Haskins or Drew Lock. But Joe Flacco, 34, certainly isn’t the long-term answer at the position. With Lock – a strong-armed passer?who needs coaching – available, Denver potentially could’ve plucked a greater need and let him learn on the bench.

      TCU defensive end L.J. Collier to the Seattle Seahawks at No. 29

      Seattle has a history of trading down and getting production out of defensive players at this point in its drafts, and this pick shouldn’t surprise anyone after the team traded Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs. While Seattle needs the help on the defensive front, Collier’s strength isn’t rushing the passer (he posted 14 1/2?sacks in four seasons). He does come cheaper than Clark would have?been, but the Seahawks still had their star at a relatively affordable rate under the franchise tag for at least one season, so they could have kicked this problem down the road for one more year. But even still, Collier needs some work and needs to improve his pass rush production drastically to merit the first-round price tag.
