Round 1

1. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

After his combine performance I am confident he will go #1 overall.

2. Giants: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

I don't think Mara fires last year's HC for benching Manning if he didn't think they could win one more Super Bowl with him. I think they'll pass on a QB and get the player that can help them win now and that's Chubb. He's a fantastic all around DE and the Giants need a pass rusher as bad as any team in the league.

3. Jets: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Jets moved up to take the best QB in this draft class and not settle for leftovers and I believe that QB is B. Mayfield. I don't know how the Jets feel about Mayfield when he's not throwing footballs at people, but for now I'll slot him here.

4. Browns: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Josh Rosen has the tools and charisma you look for in a QB. The problem is he hasn't won enough which reminds me of the knock on Jay Cutler in college. However, I think the Browns will see Rosen as the least risky of the available QB's.

5. Broncos: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Josh Allen had a great combine which moves this stock up to this point. He is not an accurate QB but he has a very strong arm and Elway loves strong armed QB's.

6. Colts: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Colts need more protection for Luck and improve their running game and Nelson can do both. Nelson is probably the 3rd most talented player in the draft class behind Barkley and Chubb but falls this far due to teams with higher needs at positions other than OG.

7. Bills: Mason Rudolph, Quarterback, Oklahoma State

***TRADE*** I personally think Rudolph is the 2nd best QB in this draft class behind Mayfield. He has unbelievable downfield accuracy, touch, courage, buys time in the pocket and is willing to scramble. The Bills have to take a QB and will love this guy.

8. Bears: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

Edmunds is the type of physical prospect that goes high in the draft. He will fill in at ILB for the Bears.

9. 49ers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The 49ers have among the worst secondarys in the league. It doesn't matter where they stick Fitzpatrick, he will be an upgrade.

10. Raiders: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

Gruden is looking to upgrade the Raiders D and the interior is the best place to start. Vea is the best NT to come out of the draft since H. Ngata.

11. Dolphins: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

With Landry gone the dolphins need another dependable possesion WR and Parker has not proven to be it while Amendola has been injury prone. Ridley has proven to be worth a top 15 draft spot both on the field and at the combine.

12. Bengals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

I think L. Jackson will make a better WR, but the Bengals could use him as their long term solution at QB.

13. Redskins: Nick Chubb, Running Back, Georgia

Washington desperately needs a RB and Chubb is a great power back that also has speed and vision.

14. Packers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Ward was not very productive from an INT standpoint which is why he is not being drafted higher, but he has good instincts and the speed that will complient the other members of their defense.

15. Cardinals: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Yes, I have Darnold being drafted much lower than nearly everyone. That's because he threw too many INT's and fumbled way too much last year. That leads to losses in the NFL. However, the Cardinals will take whichever QB falls to them.

16. Ravens: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

R. Smith is a coverage LB who is also a fast, instinctive tackler who could be the last piece to making this defense elite again.
