Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Darnold has had a disappointing season but he still has the highest ceiling in this draft. Darnold has the "it" factor to win any close game and the Browns desperately need a franchise QB.

2. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Rosen has the ability to hit any throw on the field. He has been a bit outspoken during his tenure at UCLA including saying "he doesn't want to play for the Browns" He should fit in with the Giants letting him sit behind Eli

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

With Luck returning next season he needs someone to take some of the focus off of him. Barkley is a home run threat that Luck can rely on. Father time has caught up to Gore and the lack of explosiveness hurt the Colts last season.

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

Chubb has had a dominant career at NC State. Him lined up next to Myles Garrett could create the most athletic line in the NFL. Having both of those pass rushers keeping QB's uncomfortable for years to come.

5. Broncos: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Most people would think Baker Mayfield would be the pick here but I do not believe him and Elway would get along. Allen however is from a small school in the cold that can turn into a Carson Wentz type player.

6. Jets: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Fitzpatrick is one of the most athletic players in the country that always seems to be around the ball. The Jets went with Jamal Adams last year and adding another piece to the secondary could take them to the next level.

7. Buccaneers: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

Buccaneers had a disappointing season and need some desperate help in the secondary. Jackson is a beast of a corner with amazing ball skills.

8. Bears: Orlando Brown, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

The Bears need to keep Trubisky upright in order to have him reach his high potential. Brown is a huge guy capable to push anyone around and protect Trubisky.

9. 49ers: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Jimmy G seems to be one of the best QB's in the league for years to come. However the 49ers need to add play makers around him in order to take advantage of his skills. Ridley is an explosive player with good hands to instantly becoming a number 1 receiver.

10. Raiders: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

With the Gruden era underway I believe Gruden wants to go back to the roots of Raider football. The big defense that the Raiders notoriously have. Vea is a big box in the middle that clogs up any running hole created.

11. Dolphins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Derwin James had a nice comeback season for that knee injury. James has nice ball skills for the Dolphins. The Dolphins need some support deep and James can help them shore it up.

12. Bengals: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Bengals had a very stagnate offense and need some help with Nelson. Nelson is a beast at the guard position who can help a very slow offense.

13. Redskins: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

Key had a very underwhelming season but we have seen what he is capable of doing. Key can provide pressure for the Redskins

14. Packers: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

Why not give Rodgers some more weapons on the outside. Sutton is a sure handed wide-out that can help greatly. He is the biggest and most physical receiver which should fair well in the icy Green Bay conditions.

15. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Cardinals have to start from scratch with no head coach or quarterback. Mayfield has proven to be a winner and a hard worker. I think he would fit the best in a warm weather climate to excel on the next level.

16. Ravens: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

Ray Lewis 2.0? You never know but the Ravens love defense and Smith seems to always be around the ball on every play. As evident by his performance in both the Rose Bowl and the Championship Game this kid can ball. Enough said.
