Here's everything you need to know about the NFL for May 4
It's a big day here at the newsletter and that's because after a three-month hiatus, Pete Prisco's power rankings are returning.

Since it's "Star Wars Day," I also asked Prisco to power rank all the Star Wars movies, but apparently, he has NEVER SEEN A SINGLE ONE OF THEM, which doesn't even seem believable. I mean, that's like going through life without ever using the letter "P," it just doesn't seem possible. In Prisco's defense though, he was born before movies had sound or color, so that probably has something to do with why he's been avoiding Star Wars.

Anyway, May the Fourth be with everyone, except for Prisco.

Alright, let's get to the rundown. As always, here's your weekly reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the newsletter. To sign up, all you have to do is click here and then share the link.

1. Today's show: AFC draft grades

At some point, we'll stop talking about the 2021 NFL Draft, but today will not be that day. As a matter of fact, today is the opposite of that day because for our Tuesday episode of the podcast, Will Brinson, Ryan Wilson and I did a deep dive on how each AFC team did in the draft.

Did the Patriots make a smart move by landing Mac Jones? Did the Jets finally get a draft right? Did the Bengals and Steelers get the two biggest steals of the draft with a kicker and a punter? We answer all those questions and more.

Not to mention, we also spent a few minutes trying to figure out what in the name of Sam Houston were the Texans thinking during the draft. Does the selection of Davis Mills mean that Deshaun Watson is definitely out?

Speaking of the Texans, no one in the AFC South (except the Jaguars) really drafted that well, so we walked through each team's haul to figure out what they did wrong.

We ended the podcast by fawning over every draft class in the AFC West ... except for the Raiders.
