TRADE- The Jets move up with the Browns to snag the future QB of the franchise.
The Jets are proving a lot of people wrong this season with their performance so far. They are 2-2 and their defense has proved that they can be a threat. Darnold looks like the most likely to be the 1st pick despite the poor performance vs Washington State.
Wayne Gallman didn't play that bad but something that is hurting the Giants offense is the lack of production from the backfield. Barkley had another amazing week and could be a contender for the top pick come around April.
The Chargers are in need of a powerful tackle. They are getting roasted almost every play. This might be a reach for McGlinchey but he is the healthiest and highest ranked tackle at the moment.
The 49ers are going to grab a playmaker in Rosen here. Things are going well in Washington which could mean that Cousins could stay. If he does then the 49ers will be in the market for a QB come around April.
The Dolphins are getting burned in coverage this year and are in need of a LB but there are not a lot of worthy ones that fit the scheme Gase runs. Fitzpatrick can play in different positions to help out so if they need extra help at safety he can do it. If they need extra help with CB play then he can do it.
Washington has looked like the best WR in this years draft. He is the biggest downfield threat and the Bears need one of those badly. Washington is averaging around 30 yards a catch something that is being overlooked by many.
Besides the concerns that are around Key the Colts need him. The pass rush is ugly and they struggled to get to Wilson even with Seattle's weak O-line. Key can add a quick stab pass rush to the Colts defense.
Adams has had a good showing this year and he looks like a potential high pick. The Bengals are missing a good amount of talent on the O-line that they had last year and need to rebuild it to help out Dalton and whoever is the RB next season.
Falk is finally getting the attention he deserves. He pulled an amazing game out vs USC. The Cards need a QB and Falk fits what they are looking for perfectly.
TRADE- The Vikings move up to grab a lineman before its too late.
Williams may have been injured but despite that the Vikings still need him to beef up the o-line
This is from the Jets slot
The Browns moved down but that doesn't stop them from grabbing a playmaker for the offense that is much needed. Kirk has showed that he can make plays that dazzle scouts when he has the ball in his hands. The Browns are going to like that.
The Titans got smoked last week vs the Titans pass attack. McFadden can be a very solid shutdown CB and will his talent he can make a difference for the Titans
The Jags O-line is this teams weakness. They need more players upfront for whoever is playing QB next year. Rankin has played very well this season and will be a high pick due to team needs.
From the Texans due to last seasons trade
The Browns are going to grab another RB for the team because lets just be honest. Crowell is not getting it done. Guice has showed that he is a solid runner and the Browns are going to want that on their team.
The Ravens are going to have to reach for Jones. They need a valid RB in the backfield and none of the current players on the team are going to provide that for them. Jones is growing day by day and he looks like a great player who can shoot up in the draft he continues to play this well.
Jefferson is having a good year at Texas. The Saints have proved that they can compete but need a solid LB core. This pick can help create that core by adding Jefferson.
