Myles Garrett is probably the son of Zeus or whoever the Greek God of pass rushing is. He's very good at football. He's a game wrecker, and the Browns are in desperate need of a player of his caliber. They can't get cute and pass on him here.
The 49ers invested in Brian Hoyer as a stopgap, but they still need a long term solution to build around. I think Trubisky would be a great fit in Kyle Shannahan's system
After signing Mike Glennon, the Bears are free to take the best player available. Adams, in addition to being an unreal prospect, is a proven, dynamic leader who gives Chicago's defense the gritty, hard nosed identity they've been trying to install since John Fox's arrival.
if you believe the rumors that Tom Coughlin isn't a fan of Blake Bortles, I think there's a very slight chance the Jags could surprise everyone and pick a QB here. However, something tells me they'll wait until a later round to bring in competition. The Jaguars have straight up said that they're going to focus on the offense with this upcoming draft. Given this statement, and Dave Caldwell's draft history, I fully expect them to reach slightly by picking the most dynamic offensive player available.
The Bills trade up ahead of their division rivals to snag their QB of the future before the Jets can get him. I don't think Watson is good enough to get drafted this high, but after a National Championship and a good combine, everyone already seems to be forgetting how disappointing and mediocre his last season was. Hence, the Bills reach for him here.
Chargers have needed help on the offensive line for a while now and its about time they address it. I don't think Robinson is necessarily worth a selection this high but given the Charger's need and the lack of O-line talent in this draft class the Chargers might feel the need to reach here.
Now that the Panthers have dealt Kony Ealy, this is a perfect example of need meeting best player available. Allen falling to Carolina would go a long way towards getting that defense back into superbowl form. A no brainer in my mind.
I really like Solomon Thomas, but I think he's been a tad overhyped following his great bowl game performance. Overhype aside I think he's a top 15 pick, and drafting him makes a lot of sense for CInci.
I originally had the Bills trading up to snag a Deshaun Watson before the Jets could, but I've since reconsidered. It's been widely reported that the Jets aren't interested in a QB at 6, and the Bills recently recommitted to Tyrod Taylor.
So in case you haven't heard, Kirk Cousins does NOT like that. And by "that", I mean the Redskins' front office. If the Redskins are smart, they have to start planning for Kirk's inevitable departure. Here, they trade up ahead of the quarterback needy Browns in order to snag Kirk's replacement. From there, they can either sit Kizer for a year or, if they feel he's ready to start right away, deal Cousins for draft picks and roll with DeShone next season.
Missing out on all of the top quarterbacks, Cleveland instead opts to add pair up Reuben Foster with newly signed Jamie Collins, sneakily transforming the Browns linebacker corps into one of the leagues best.
No one can deny Lattimore's talent but his hamstring injuries worry me. His durability issues combined with the depth of this class at cornerback, I can absolutely see Lattimore slipping out of the top ten. However, the Cardinals wont hesitate to scoop him up to give their defensive backfield a much needed boost.
I'm a huge fan of Sidney Jones, but in light of his injury, I've got to
Ravens always go best player available, and in this case, Howard fills a need as well. The Ravens offense doesn't have too many weapons to work with, and I think Howard would be an excellent pickup to hopefully start moving their offense into playoff form once again.
