Round 1

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

The Browns have the opportunity to set their franchise right for years tp come this offseason. It started last year with Myles Garrett, now with John Dorsey calling the shots, the rebuild can officially begin.
The Browns need to get their QB in Free Agency this year. They have the cap space to go get a veteran that you know can play. Saquon Barkley is the best player in this draft, and I know there is a stigma going RB #1 overall, but he is a player that can be your workhorse from day 1.

2. Giants: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The Giants get their QB of the future and at the same time allow Eli to have his swan song at the same time. Allen isn't ready to play in the NFL at this point, but his sill set is incredible; he's just to special to pass up here. The best thing for him is that he will get 2 years to sit behind Eli and learn the ins and outs of the NFL.

3. Bills: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

TRADE- It is reported that the Colts want out of this pick. And the Bills have made it known that they are moving on from Tyrod. The Bills have the ammo to move up to get their QB here. Darnold might not have the arm Talent of Rosen, but he is a winner, and doesn't come tith all the off the field stuff as Rosen.

4. Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Cleveland goes Defense here and gets a solid piece to solidify the secondary. Fitzpatrick is a legitimate Safety and can play deep. This will allow Peppers to play closer to the L.O.S. and be a run stuffer. This pick improves to aspects of your defense.

5. Broncos: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Elway is going to be a big player in Free Agency this offseason. I expect him to get either Kirk Cousins or Teddy Bridgewater to be his QB. That will allow him to get a playmaker to pair with his new signal-caller.

6. Jets: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

Todd Bowles is a former DB and he should go DB here. The Jets will go after a QB in Free Agency. I like Kirk Cousins here a lot. The Jets have gone DB a lot here recently in the 1st round, but those picks seem to fail. Hopefully Jackson can make Jets fans forget those other failures.

7. Buccaneers: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

You have to protect your franchise QB, at least the Buc's think Winston is a Franchise QB, LOL. Nelson is a potential steal here at #7. Nelson could quickly become the best Gaurd in the NFL. He has skills that are already unmatched and people could be talking about him as A HOFer real soon.

8. Bears: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

The Bears try again to finally get thier #1 WR. Sutton has a great skill set, but he played against lesser talent in the AAC. Sutton will take a year to get acclimated to the NFL. That could be bad for the devetopment of Trubisky.

9. Cardinals: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

TRADE- The Cardinals get their QB here. They start to feel the heat when Rosen keeps falling, so they trade up to get him. Rosen has baggage, but for anyone that saw Steve Wilks press conference you know that he is a high character guy, and he can make sure that Rosen stays in line and becomes the QB he was meant to be.

10. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

Raiders get thier MLB here to help with the solidification of the front 7. Smith and Mack can be a formidible force for years to come.

11. Dolphins: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Dolphins might not have a need at DE, but Chubb is just too good to pass on here. Chubb will bring youth to a aging Dline, that will be a big plus behind this pick.

12. Bengals: Orlando Brown, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

The Bengals reach here for a OT, but that is thier biggest need and at this point it will be hard to find someone to trade with. Orlando is a interesting player, he has a good skill set, but plays down to his competition, and in the NFL that is not a option.

13. Redskins: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

I love this pick for the Redskins. They need a kick in the pants, and this kid is just that guy. He has a passion for the game that Kirk Cousins has never shown in public. I truly believe that Mayfield is going to be a great NFL QB, and the Redskins could finally be looking at a great 10 year run.

14. Packers: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

The Packers are actually a team with a number of needs. Key is a special talent and could be a great addition to a defense that needs to find playnakers up front. Ciay isn't getting any younger.

15. 49ers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

the 49ers are a team that will be a playoff contender next year. And Ward will help solidify that secondary to take that next step. If Ward pans out then the 49ers could have one of the youngest and most dominate secondary's in the NFL.

16. Ravens: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

The Ravens need to hit Free Agency to find some ture reciever threats. But if they want to find a #1 threat they need to wait until the draft and take a yound stud.Christian Kirk has all the talent to be a legitimate star in the NFL. But,the Ravens track record of taking recievers in the 1st round is not good, so lets be cautious.
