Round 1

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

Cleveland finally gets their franchise QB. Unlike Rosen, Sam actually wouldn't mind playing for the Browns.

2. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Should be a no-brainer if you're NYG, grab the franchise QB who can succeed Eli Manning.

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

Arguably, the best player in the draft who can be a dynamic playmaker out of the backfield for Indy to keep the pressure off of Luck and keep him upright.

4. Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Browns could add talent to their secondary and having the luxury of another top 5 selection gives them that opportunity to upgrade. Fitzpatrick is probably the best DB prospect to enter the draft since Jalen Ramsey a couple of years ago.

5. Broncos: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Denver is going to pay Kirk Cousins ransom. Depending on his arrival, QB may not be the selection here. Nelson would be ideal to improve a line that needs to protect whoever the quarterback is.

6. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

New York will be in the market for a veteran QB to be the bridge for whoever they draft in the 1st round. Josh Allen could use some NFL development for a year.

7. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

A playmaker in the secondary that the Bucs need.

8. Bears: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Trubisky needs weapons, so this would be a rock solid start in improving the guys around him.

9. 49ers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

SF is in need of adding talent at cornerback and Ward could be elite at that position in the right situation.

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

Acquiring an elite pass-rusher to tag along with arguably the best in Khalil Mack would be a nightmare for opposing Quarterbacks.

11. Dolphins: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

A linebacker needy defense would strike gold with ultra-talented Smith.

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

Cincy's offensive line has been horrendous and improving it with a 1st round pick could drastically make an impact protecting Dalton.

13. Redskins: Marcus Davenport, Defensive End, Texas-San Antonio

An enormous defensive line specimen that Washington could throw on their front line along with Johnathan Allen.

14. Packers: Mike Hughes, Cornerback, Central Florida

Green Bay has had a terrible defensive season and a lot of that has to do with getting dominated through the air. Hughes, a fast rising CB prospect could make a huge impact for the Packers if selected.

15. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

Arizona finally gets their hands on a franchise signal-caller. This is a team that is a QB away from being a threat in the NFC West.

16. Ravens: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

A pass-rusher is always needed, and Baltimore needs one. Suggs is only getting older and that position could use more production.
