With the benefit of hindsight, let's look back at which franchises best positioned themselves for 2016 and beyond with their offseason acquisitions, and which came to quickly regret many of their draft picks and free-agent signings. ESPN NFL Insiders Mark Dominik, Bill Polian, Louis Riddick and Field Yates helped compile the original offseason grades last May; this go-around I did the grades myself, with some help from folks in the league.

Baltimore's offseason moves look better in hindsight. Eric Weddle provided the production and leadership the Ravens sought. Fellow free-agent addition Mike Wallace produced his first 1,000-yard season since 2011. Cornerback Jerraud Powers was another solid veteran signing.
The Ravens' 2016 draft class ranked sixth in total offensive or defensive snaps played, led by first-round left tackle Ronnie Stanley. Fourth-rounders Tavon Young and Alex Lewis also played extensively, and fifth-rounder Matt Judon made positive contributions to the defensive line rotation. That production made it easier to overlook underwhelming first seasons from Kamalei Correa (second round) and Bronson Kaufusi (third round).
