Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

One of the best players in the draft- Browns improved on oline last off-season but Crowell had a Down year and Duke is more of a slot WR. The Yes the Browns again Pass on a quarterback but the Browns look QB with 2nd 1st Rounder and choose a GAME CHANGER #1

2. 49ers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

A game changer on defense who is “a bigger Tyrann Mathieu.” Not to mention, he can play S and CB like dominate Malcom Jenkins. After an expected great combine, GMs will obsess over this talented prospect.

3. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Giants showed that they are looking elsewhere at quarterback. The Giants pick Rosen here who is the projected best quarterback of this class.

4. Colts: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

This years Myles Garrett. Has great power and athleticism to change the game. Chubb is very underrated and that’s saying a lot for a top-20 pick.

5. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Buccs do not have a huge need for a safety but Derwin James is an incredible player and prospect who will be a All- Pro saftey for years to come.

6. Dolphins: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Dolphins are is great need of a Gaurd to burst their running game to a new level. Jay Ajayi was traded because of the O-line. With Philly, Ajayi is able to break big gamechanging runs.

7. Bears: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

Finally someone who can catch for Mitch Trubisky. True #1 Reciever after Kevin White is always injured. Sutton being picked 7 depends on a great combine. However, watching him play makes me think he has a great chance being picked here.

8. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Josh Allen didn’t play well this season but he is the most talented QB in this class. Also, Jets already showed interests in him. The pick makes sense here as McCown is not the future.

9. Browns: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

This might be a shocker for some here. “Baker before Darnold?!!.” Yes, Darnold didn’t reach expectations. However, Baker Mayfield showed he is a winner. That’s exactly what the Browns need. Baker has some promblems with his actions but when it comes to it, he will win the Browns games.

10. Raiders: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Raiders need to upgrade their Oline- Oline has played awful this year and Penn is getting to retirement age. After missing a lot this year, Williams showed he is a monster.

11. Broncos: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Sam Darnold “slips” a little compared to other Mocks but Broncos will easily draft him here considering they have been through 3 different quarterbacks this year. Drafting Darnold here will open up the run game and make the defense have a reason to compete at the best of their abilities.

12. Bengals: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Whitworth was a HUGE loss for the Bengals as he is doing great with his new Rams team. But Mike can be the Bengals tackle for a long time.

13. Cardinals: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

Cardinals get younger up front as they select this Clemson stud. Wilkins is a beast a will reck havoc in backfields.

14. Packers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Packers went CB in last years draft however it’s still a weak part in Packers defense. Packers need more firepower against the NFL’s WR duos.

15. Seahawks: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

Yes, the Seahawks get Dwane Brown but they simply need more compitition for one of the worst o-lines in football.

16. Cowboys: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

Cowboys need BIG MAN up front to stuff the run.
