Another month of scouting done, but not much has changed. Haven't rewatched many of the players because I've been focusing on new prospects, so this isn't too big of an update. Rate and comment please!!

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Jets: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

After not drafting a QB, the Jets are going to have to hope Hackenberg pans out if they don't want to be picking here. Darnold appears to be my clear cut #1 QB in this class, and will go in the top 2 at least.

2. Rams: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

The Rams didn't do enough to really improve their roster, and will likely be picking this high. Their biggest hole is on the offensive line, and Williams is being compared to the great Joe Thomas. He has also only allowed one sack in two years, and that came on a QB scramble.

3. 49ers: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The 49ers seem to have a nice plan,but won't be able to get out of the bottom until the bring in a franchise QB. Allen has the potential to be that guy, but needs another year starting to really prove himself.

4. Jaguars: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

With the third QB, the Jaguars replace Blake Bortles. They haven't picked up a fifth year option yet, so they likely aren't big fans of his development. Rosen has all of the tools to be an NFL QB, he just needs to put it together this season.

5. Bears: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

After taking their QB of the near future this year, the Bears still need to address other spots on their roster. Key is the best player available here, and will give them a pass rusher opposite of Leonard Floyd.

6. Dolphins: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

I don't think the Dolphins are this bad, but I didn't think they had a favorable schedule. No players on my board really fit their needs here, so they go with Wilkins who can give them a talented player to add to their front.

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

The Browns roster is showing improvement, and I think they avoid the top 5 next year. Barkley is another talented RB who will go top 10, or top 5, and would give the Browns a big offensive play maker that they lack.

8. Bills: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

The Bills did not exercise Sammy Watkins' fifth year option, so they could be on the market for a new #1 WR. Kirk is big and athletic, and he should get better numbers now that he's the top target.

9. Lions: Josh Sweat, Defensive End, Florida State

Even with their awful pass rush, the Lions failed to improve in that area. Sweat is a player who is big and athletic who will help give them a rusher opposite of Ziggy Ansah.

10. Redskins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The secondary for the Redskins is one of their weakest units, so they need to find some more talent. James is coming off of an injury season, but he has demonstrated the ability to be a dominant player.

11. Cardinals: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

With Larry Fitzgerald coming down to the end of his career, the Cardinals need to find a new top WR. Sutton easily could have gone on day 1 this year, so staying back should help him refine his route running skills.

12. Bengals: Malik Jefferson, Inside Linebacker, Texas

LB is still an area of need to the Bengals, and next year there will be a stud near the top. Jefferson has been one the brightest spots on that Texas team, and can do everything you need a LB to do.

13. Vikings: Prospect not selected

Clelin Ferrell DE/OLB Clemson
The Vikings front 7 took a hit with Shariff Floyd, and also could use another player on the edge. Ferrell is big and dominant as part of the Clemson D-Line that also features Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence.

14. Chargers: Duke Ejiofor, Defensive End, Wake Forest

The Chargers have multiple edge rushers in contract years, and could look to find a partner for Joey Bosa in the first round next year. Ejiofor had a lot of production last season, and should continue to do so to help his draft stock.

15. Eagles: Tarvarus McFadden, Cornerback, Florida State

The Eagles passed over taking a CB in the first round last year, and they will need to address the position next year. McFadden has terrific cover skills and should find himself being one of the top CBs next year.

16. Ravens: Jerome Baker, Outside Linebacker, Ohio State

Terrell Suggs is close to retirement, and the Ravens need to find his successor. Baker is an all over LB who is continuing the trend of high Ohio State picks.
