Pre-FA Bowl mock draft. Took into account team needs and general chatter from what I've read.

The Browns need a QB in the worst way and word is that John Dorsey is a big Darnold fan. Plus they can avoid a possible Eli type fiasco with Rosen.
I have a hard time believing Dave Gettleman will pass on a top QB here at the top. They could draft Barkley here, but the RB class is very deep.
Ownership and some in the front office have raved about Barkley and the possibility of pairing him with Andrew Luck. I would place Bradley Chubb and the possibility of trading back and drafting a lineman above Barkley, but signs point to RB here.
The Browns best case scenario would be Barkley at 4, but Fitzpatrick is one hell of a consolation prize. They'd be able to pair him with Jabrill Peppers in the secondary.
Broncos are a decent QB away from being a SB contender again, hopefully Allen can be that guy.
The Jets need a QB badly, but if Allen isn't available, I really can't see them going for Baker Mayfield at 6. So they solidify the offensive line for now.
The Bucs ranked dead last in sacks this year, and they'd be thrilled to get the best pass rusher in the draft.
Popular mock pick and it makes sense. Give Trubisky a true #1 weapon. I think the hiring of Matt Nagy from KC just solidifies they'll go offense here at 8.
The Niners have a good young corner in Akhello Witherspoon, but they could use another to pair with him.
Burst onto the scene in a big way in the CFB playoff, and MLB is one of the bigger weakspots on the Raiders roster.
The Dolphins linebacker corps ranked among the worst in the league according to PFF, and Evans can help lead that defense. Although it would be tough for them to miss out on Roquan Smith by one pick.
Last year the Bengals should've taken Ryan Ramczyk (who ranked 8th among tackles in 2017-18 according to PFF) after they lost 3 lineman in FA, in stead they took John Ross. They shouldn't pass on one this time around, especially if Nelson falls.
Even with the talk of letting Cousins walk, as of now he's still on the roster, so they help out their defense with one of the top DBs on the board.
Mike Pettine loves athletic corners, and that's Jackson. He's with Ward as 1 and 1A corners in this draft, and I would be pumped as a Packer fan if they got Jackson at 14. Jackson led the FBS in INTs, deflections, and forced incompletions this season.
Palmer is gone and now the Cardinals need a QB. Mayfield is the big wild-card in this draft, and I think he could be great with the weapons they have in Arizona.
The Ravens offense was pretty bad this year and a big reason is their lack of a #1 receiver. Perriman can't get on the field, and can you really trust Mike Wallace?
