Round 1

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

The Browns don't take a QB #1. Why? Because Allen or Darnold will be available at 4. I don't see a trade taking place for a team to leapfrog them at 3, and I see the Giants undoubtedly taking a QB. Bottom line- Barkley will not be available at 4, but a franchise QB will be

2. Giants: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Darnold is the Giants' guy. He's got the best upside for a QB, and will be their franchise in a year's time

3. Colts: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Defense, defense, defense. Colts could grab Nelson but they know they have a bigger need on the other side of the ball.

4. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The Browns get a big-armed, Flacco/Roethlisberger-esque QB to pair with their franchise HB. This is how to restart an offense with two top-tier rookies.

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

Assuming Cousins goes in free agency, the Broncos will start to provide some ability for him to stay upright and also give the run game a big boost

6. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The Jets need a starting QB. Hackenberg failed. Petty hasn't developed. McCown is ancient. Rosen is an instant starter. Mayfield may be a sexier pick, but he has boom-or-bust potential. This is a safe, successful pick.

7. Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Great player from a great school. Will make plays and invigorate this Bucs defense

8. Bears: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Two Crimson Tide guys in a row- here, the Bears need an offensive playmaker for Trubisky

9. 49ers: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

Bringing back the premium 2010 Niners' linebacking corps with this pick

10. Raiders: Marcus Davenport, Defensive End, Texas-San Antonio

Get some more edge pressure. Carr has the weapons he needs, so the defense now needs to develop

11. Dolphins: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

#GetMeToMiami falls flat for Mayfield, as they have the NFL's most underrated QB in Ryan Tannehill. This bolsters the defense, as WR and HB would be too overvalued at this pick

12. Bengals: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Best OT in the draft to help patch up the woeful O-Line

13. Redskins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

Aaron Donald also went 13th. Watch this space

14. Packers: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

The Packers are an awful team without Rodgers. I can't see an offensive playmaker available here, but the defense could do with some extra help at the second level

15. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Cardinals can breathe a sigh of relief. A QB fell to them from the top 10. They got lucky as this is exactly what they need. Their season would be lost without a semblance of a starting QB

16. Ravens: Orlando Brown, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

Brown is a big scary mauler. Flacco plays his best football with a confident O-Line, and with the presence of 1st rounder Ronnie Stanley, perennial Pro Bowler Marshall Yanda, and now Brown, the Ravens can pound the ball and kick-start their offense
