Round 1

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

After starting 0-2, no one is surprised by where the Jets are at. Darnold has the qualities of a franchise QB and if he plays consistently well, he will be the top pick.

2. 49ers: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The 49ers have yet to get any kind of offense going. Rosen looked a little shaky against Memphis, but he helped put up over 40 points, which usually can win you the game. The 49ers could get Kirk Cousins, but without that having happened, they need a QB.

3. Colts: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Without Luck, the Colts have shown that they have tons of weaknesses on their roster. 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.

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

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.

5. Bengals: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

The Bengals offense has been awful to start the season, but their whole team has been playing poorly. Key is the best player on the board, and would be an instant upgrade at OLB.

6. Bears: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College

The Bears have many holes, so will probably want to go BPA. With a need for more pass rushers, they go with Landry who has power and quickness to get after the QB.

7. Bills: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Bills are in full rebuild mode, and that means accumulating talent. Fitzpatrick is a player who will give them versatility in the secondary.

8. Jaguars: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

Blake Bortles showed promise in week one, but then went back to normal a week after. Jackson struggled against Clemson, but so will everyone this year. He has shown great improvement in his accuracy, field vision, and pocket presence.

9. Chargers: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

Philip Rivers needs to stay on his feet if the Chargers want to succeed. Adams is an athletic and large LT who has done a great job protecting Jake Browning.

10. Saints: Prospect not selected

Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

The Saints defense has allowed some fantastic performances by QB's so far this year, and once again need to address defense. Ferrell is one of the most dominant pass rushers in college football.

11. Rams: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Jared Goff has been able to play much better under a new coach, but the Rams still need a franchise LT. Williams is in the discussion for best OT in college football, but an injury and shaky performance against Maryland could impact his draft stock.

12. Cardinals: Equanimeous St. Brown, Wide Receiver, Notre Dame

Carson Palmer has been awful this year, but there aren't any QB's i find worthy of this spot (Josh Allen has taken a big drop in my big board). With Fitzgerald retiring soon, the Cardinals could grab a reliable WR in St. Brown who hasn't had good QB play all season.

13. Browns: Tarvarus McFadden, Cornerback, Florida State

The Browns let Joe Haden go, and that shows they are ready to find a new #1 CB. McFadden has great size and production, but hasn't gotten to play since week one.

14. Giants: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

There has been no time for Eli Manning in the pocket, and it has affected his play when there isn't pressure. McGlinchey is a slight reach here, but is a future NFL LT.

15. Dolphins: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

With Ndamukong Suh in one DT spot, the Dolphins could add another player next to him. Wilkins is effective at making plays in the backfield and has one of the best motors in the country.

16. Redskins: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU

A committee of RB's isn't the best strategy, and the Redskins are in need of a feature back. Guice is a powerful and shifty back who can turn any run into a big one.
