Kizer actually looked competent this week against the Lions but the Browns trying to trade for McCarron shows that they do not think he is their long term QB. Rosen is the best pure pocket passer in the class but his personality may be a problem for some teams. It would not hurt to have two young QBs to develop either.
Assuming that Garoppolo is the future at QB for the 49ers, they are going to need to surround him with weapons. Barkley is the best player in the class and is a better RB prospect than both Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette. They also might trade this pick to someone who wants to beat the Giants to Sam Darnold.
Eli Manning's play is declining but that is no excuse for how this team is playing, it would not suprise me if they are picking first overall. A team with this much talent does not usually pick this high in the draft so they need to go ahead and take a future franchise QB. Darnold would be in an ideal situation to sit behind Manning for a year or two.
The Colts have not had an elite pass rusher since the Freeney/Mathis duo that ended when Freeney left in 2012 and Mathis retired in 2016. Chubb canrush the passer and stop the run at an elite level. He has great size and quickness and plays with a high motor. Chubb has completley dominated his opponets this season and should be a lock Top 10 pick.
Bengals need offensive line help but Minkah is too good to pass up here. George Iloka has pplayed fine but Minkah brings versatility and elite playmaking ability to an already solid defensive unit.
If the Broncos are picking this high I do not see them taking anything other than a QB. Allen is still my #3 QB and would be a fun prospect for Elway to help develop. None of the QBs on the roster are the one to take Denver back to the Super Bowl, although I would be intrigued to see Chad Kelly take a few snaps this season if he can get healthy.
Rivers still has a few good years left in him and the Chargers need to get the most out of them. The tackle position needs to be upgraded and McGlinchey is a very clean prospect that is good in pass protection. Josh Allen would probably be considered here if they end up picking before Denver and it would probably be a better situation for Allen becasue he can sit behind Rivers for a few years.
The Bucs are one of the worst teams in the league in getting to the QB and they need a pass rusher to pair with Noah Spence. Key is an elite talent that can wreck havoc in the NFL if teams can look pass the off the field issues.
They need offensive weapons but they have 3 picks in the second round for that. It is simple, the Browns just need to draft good football players and James is fantastic athlete that would automatically boost the Browns porous secondary. I never believed that Peppers was worth a first round pick but I do not think the Browns are using him to his strengths. James would slide into the traditional safety role which would allow the Browns to move Peppers around the field.
The Bears need to find Trubisky weapons at receiver and Ridley is the most NFL-ready prospect in the class. He is a crisp route runner with great hands and should be able to come in and be the WR1 in Chicago.
The Jets need to find a franchise QB and Jackson would finally bring some excitement to the franchise. I would still bring back McCown and make Jackson work for it but there is no denying that he is an elite playmaker.
The Cardinals need a QB but there is no value at this pick so they take a corner to play across from Patrick Peterson. Ward does not have ideal height but he makes up for it with great athleticism and ball skills. They could a lot of different prospects here and it would fill a need.
Bowman is only a short term fix at linebacker for a team that needs some talent at the position. Smith has been my favorite linebacker this year, he flies around the field and makes plays in both the run and the pass game.
Nelson probably deserves to go top 10 but he would be a home run pick for the Dolphins and fills their biggest need. Nelson is the best offensive lineman in the draft.
Flacco needs weapons and all of the WR signings for the Ravens have not worked out. Sutton is 6'4 physcial reciever that could end up being the best WR in the class.
Harrison is frequently overshadowed by the talent on Alabama's defense but he is a physical, impact safety. This will be a QB if Cousins leaves but Safety is an underrated need on this team.
