Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Josh Rosen is an elite QB prospect that the Browns cannot pass-up. Hopefully they'll learn from their mistakes for not grabbing Wentz or Watson in previous drafts. They could've had Garrett and Watson in the same draft if they wanted to, but they traded back. SMH

2. Giants: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

I wouldn't blame Sam Darnold if he declared for the draft, but he could help his game immensely if he heads back to USC. He could refine his game and become a consensus #1 pick in 2019. The Giants need a QB and Eli Manning is not the answer anymore.

3. 49ers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

San Francisco is in a good spot with a franchise quarterback already on their roster. They can select on value and need, which Minkah could fill in at corner. Fitzpatrick is a versatile DB, and I believe he could be a great corner as well as a safety.

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

The Colts have a nice young GM on their hands and I believe he'd select the best player available. Barkley would be a no-brainer to add to the backfield with Andrew Luck.

5. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Tampa Bay has plummeted to end the year, and now they're rewarded with another high pick. James would be a game-changer pick.

6. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

If Allen is available at 6, I'd be surprised if the Jets passed on his talent.

7. Raiders: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Defense seems to always be the issue with Oakland. Chubb and Mack would be an insane pass-rush.

8. Chargers: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

San Diego has a pretty stacked roster. They could go QB, but I don't see one at this point that they'd reach for. Smith would be great value and a need pick.

9. Bears: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Chicago needs to give Trubisky some weapons and this would be a good start. Ridley and Meredith would be a nice tandem for the future at WR.

10. Cardinals: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Arizona is atrocious on the offensive line. That's all that needs to be said. They'll go all in another year for Arians before he retires, so I believe they'll fill a major need rather than draft a young QB.

11. Bengals: Malik Jefferson, Inside Linebacker, Texas

Cincy has slowly gotten worse on defense and Jefferson would be a huge boost to a decimated linebacking core. Malik and Vontaze can both scare offenses from going down the middle.

12. Broncos: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

Baker finds a home in Denver. The Broncos are literally desperate at QB, and this pick would make a lot of sense.

13. Browns: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

Go ahead and give Josh Rosen some guys to pass the ball to. Coleman is good, but he seems to be a number two wideout, so why not grab a number one in Kirk.

14. Lions: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Detroit honestly should draft a head coach here. Not a big fan of Jim Caldwell. Realistically, they need to add another guy opposite Slay to cover.

15. Redskins: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

This would be a smart pick for Washington. Allen and Wilkins in the interior would be scary for many years to come.

16. Ravens: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College

Baltimore could definitely look for QB here, but I'm not sliding Rudolph up this high. Landry would be perfect for what the Ravens try to do on defense.
