Even after a somewhat shaky performance, you can't look to far into one game. That being said, Darnold has the qualities of a franchise QB and if he plays consistently well, he will be the top pick.
Rosen showed great poise and talent in the comeback win against the Aggies, and maintains my spot as QB2. The 49ers could get Kirk Cousins, but without that having happened, they need a QB.
Deshone Kizer might be the future at QB, and that means the Browns don't have to use a high pick on one. Barkley is my top player on the board, and is a difference maker in any offense.
The Bears have many holes, so will probably want to go BPA. In this case, it's James. James did not disappoint in his return to the game after missing all of last season, and is a versatile player who can do anything asked, from coverage to rushing the passer.
Even though the Jaguars took Cam Robinson a year ago, I see him more as a RT for the NFL. They could still stand to add a player on the line, and Adams is a big, strong, and athletic OT who can make a living as a LT in the NFL.
The offensive line has been the Rams biggest issue, and if they want their young guys to succeed, they need to block for them. Williams started off the season a little rough, but has been the most consistent LT in the country over the last two years.
The Bills are in full rebuild mode, and that means accumulating talent. Key is the best player on the board, and would be an instant upgrade at OLB for Buffalo.
Jay Cutler might not be successful in Miami, and they could find themselves back picking near the top. With a need for more pass rushers, they go with Landry who has power and quickness to get after the QB.
The Chargers have solid CBs, but could add some more talent at S. Fitzpatrick has the ability to play both positions, but is a more natural fit at FS, a position of weakness for LA.
Drew Brees may want to play past 40, but he might not be able to hold up. In that case, a potential replacement can be found this year. Allen was not impressive in the opener, but has the traits of an NFL QB. He could sit a few years and improve behind one of the all-time best.
Adam Jones is a liability off the field, and doesn't play well enough to make up for it. The Bengals need to invest and early pick in a CB soon, and McFadden has the size and ball skills to be an effective starter.
The Ravens offense has lacked any kind of fire for years, and they need a play maker to get things going. Guice is a shifty and powerful runner who could be that guy.
After losing their top two wideouts from a year ago, the Redskins added Terrelle Pryor. However, if Josh Doctson doesn't play well, the Redskins could look to add another WR in round one. Brown is a long receiver with great hands who runs great routes.
The Lions didn't get to the passer well last season, and should look for more help up front. Wilkins is a productive player in the run and pass who can play along the line.
Denzel Ward CB Ohio State
Vontae Davis is the Colts only reliable CB, but he's aging. Ward struggled some against Indiana's big receivers, but displayed his great instincts and ball skills as well.
Sharrif Floyd's future is in jeopardy, so the Vikings need a new player alongside Linval Joseph. Hurst is small, but he's quick and very good at getting to the QB.
