At some point the Browns need to start winning. Dorsey brings in a vet to hopefully get them on their feet. Keep Kizer on the bench to learn behind Bradford. In comes Saquon the biggest impact rookie on the offensive side of the ball. With Saquon and Duke the browns try to rely less on Bradford to keep him healthy.
Its a new GM and Coach. They may say that they believe in Eli still and rightfully so, but hes starting to show his age more and more.Its doubtful that this new regime passes up on the most pro ready and number 1 QB in the draft.
Bills trade 21&22 along with 2019 1st and 3rd.
Bills have plenty of picks to pull this off, it may require more but this feels right. Its clear that they dont think Tyrod is the answer there in buffalo. So they make a big trade and grab the QB with a higher ceiling than Rosen but also a lower floor. Its not by much but its clear these two are the top 2 QBs.
With 2 picks in the top 5 the Browns really have a chance to make a splash and grab two difference makers. Here they grab one of the top players on the defensive side of the ball. Minkah is a great player that is versatile enough to be either FS or CB. They hope hes just a good as Jalen Ramsey.
Elway feels like he cant miss on another QB after the lynch and Siemian and Osweiler debacles.So he decides on grabbing a veteran in FA. Failing to grab Kirk, he then grabs the next hottest QB this off-season nick foles. With Foles he gets a fairly cheap veteran, and can say that he will have an open competition with Lynch for the starting position. Quenton Nelson is the best guard in this draft by far, and although he isnt that agile the dude is just a beast and will fit in fine anywhere.
The Jets over performed this season with some big holes in the most important positions. QB Edge CB and C are all huge needs and that they managed to win and stay in most games shows that they aren't as far off as everyone claimed.Here they go with the best pass rusher of this draft, although hes more naturally a 4 3 DE hes athletic enough to play olb in a 3 4
The Bucs are in a bad spot here, lose out on the Pass rusher they want and have to reach for a need. They grab Landry who had to deal with some injuries but if hes back to form can be a great pass rusher in the league.
The bears will try to get some Wideouts in free agency. Even if they grab one, they still need more. Calvin Ridley is the top Wideout in an underwhelming class this year. but he is still a good prospect that should be able to help trubisky.
Jimmy G looks like the real deal. If they want him to continue lighting it up, hes going to need some more help. Sutton is a great physical receiver that is just what the 9ers and Garappolo need. He needs to work on his route running a bit, but with his size can still be effective as a rookie.
Oak needs help pretty much everywhere on defense. Theres no consensus number 1 corner. It could be either Ward or Jackson as well, but well go with Oliver here.
Baker gets his wish and goes to Miami. Tannenhill is recovering from an acl injury where he tried to come back too early. Who knows how hell play when he does come back. This should set up for an interesting QB battle to follow.
They need help on both lines, but they decide to go with protecting Dalton. This could be his last chance to show that hes their franchise QB so they go and try to help him as much as possible.
Josh Allen would be tempting here, but they hold off on grabbing the project QB. They go with a DT here. They had a horrible run d so any help here is much needed.
Green bay needs a pass rusher really bad. Here they go with a prospect that has the potential to be one of the better pass rushers in the league. He just needs great coaching because he is extremely raw and relies on his size and power a bit too much right now.
Arizona wins the kirk cousins sweepstakes. Now they try to protect him as their QBs were hit a lot last season. Connor williams could be the best tackle of this draft but was battling injuries throughout the year.
Surprise pick here, but the ravens decide to take a chance on the potential of Allen. Flacco is 33 and has been on the decline for the last few years. This move could be similar to the Chiefs last year drafting Mahomes.
