Rumors are the Browns love Allen and now with Tyrod Taylor they dont have to rush the young Wyoming QB.
Poor, Poor Eli Manning. Leading the franchise to 2 Super Bowl championships and arguably having a hall of fame worthy career, he gets benched for GENO SMITH. But by being 37, the Giants need to draft an heir apparent and have Sam Darnold fall into their laps.
The Jets traded up for a QB and nabbed one with as much personality as Broadway Joe. Given the right supporting cast, Mayfield can succeed in New York.
It is no secret that the Bills want a QB and with 2 first round picks and Rosen still on the board, they will look to jump Denver and trade a ton of picks to the Browns to do so. Rosen gives them their best QB since Jim Kelly.
With four QBs gone with the first four picks, the Broncos get their choice of the actual best players of the draft. The Broncos LOVE pass rushers and saw theirs diminish last year. Putting Chubb with Von Miller would create one of the top duos in the NFL.
Trading down, getting a boat load of picks in the process, ends up being a brilliant move because they get the most explosive offensive player in the draft and it fills a need for the team. Barkley would take the pressure off of whoever ends up playing QB this year.
The Bucs NEED secondary help and they grab the versatile Fitzpatrick to help that. His ability to play corner and safety will greatly help out the Bucs Defense.
This is almost too perfect a pick to mess up. The Bears have a hole at guard and their new O-Line coach is the former Notre Dame O-Line coach. Nelson has been deemed the "safest pick in the draft" and should be able to earn a lot of Pro Bowls and All-Pros.
The 49ers put together a great stretch of wins to end the season and can use this pick to further strengthen their defense. The 49ers desperately need LB help with Rueben Foster getting felony domestic violence charges. Smith is the opposite player of Foster off the field and an even better player on it. He is a leader and instinctual player.
The Raiders need secondary help and have the chance to grab the best CB in the draft. They can pair him with former teammate Gareon Conley to hopefully form quite a tandom.
With the release of Suh the Dolphins need a player in the middle of their D-Line. Vea is a large man and a dominate run stuffer and would help free up Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn.
The Browns trade down and get possibly the most explosive pass rusher outside Chubb. Davenport has been compare to Eziekel Ansah and would make a fearsome pass rush with Myles Garrett.
The Redskins get an athletic and powerful D-Lineman who will pair nicely with Jonathan Allen. Payne played really well this past season and really tested well at the combine.
The Packers get lucky with a Top-10 player falling right into their laps. Edmunds can play inside or outside and allows versatility within the LB Core. Edmunds can cover TEs and RBs and also rush the passer, making him a perfect fit with the Pack.
The Cardinals have a very interesting QB room right now with Bradford and Glennon in it. They clearly need a QB of the future. Do I think Lamar Jackson should be drafted this high? No. Will he? Most likely. If he can pan out as a QB the Cardinals could very well have the most explosive offense in the NFL with Jackson and a healthy Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens need young receiver help.Calvin Ridley is a great route runner with solid hands. He would be a great safety blanket like he was for the Crimson Tide.
