Round 1

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

Barkley is the most talented player in this draft. Yes they do need a QB but I have them taking a QB with the 4th pick. I just can't see them passing up on saquon.

2. Giants: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

They do need a QB. But, their new GM said that he thinks Eli has a couple of years left. The Giants have 2 good players on a bad O-line. Both players are set to become free agents (Pugh and Richburg).

3. Bills: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Bills trade their 21st and 22nd overall picks for the 3rd pick and a 4th round pick from the Colts. The Bills franchise needs to end their losing ways and start winning. They draft the heisman trophy winner, who fell just short of playing in the national title game.

4. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Sam Darnold is the best QB in this draft class. He gets drafted by the Browns who have a good offensive line, Saquon barkley, and a good young defense.

5. Broncos: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Yes they might get a QB in free agency. But, so can every other team that needs a QB. As of now, the Broncos have a championship level defense. That defense won the super bowl with peyton manning in his last year. They need a QB. I think they draft the most NFL ready QB in this year's class.

6. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The jets have a good young core. They just need to find their future QB. Josh allen is the QB with the biggest upside out of all the QBs in this year's class. They draft him, sit him for a year (to learn the offense), and start him the season after this upcoming season.

7. Buccaneers: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

The bucs lack pass rushing talent. Bradley Chubb is the best DE in this years class.

8. Bears: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

They have Adrian Amos. One of the best safeties in the NFL at age 24. 2 of their 3 starting corners are upcoming free agents. If they draft Fitzpatrick, he and Amos could form a great tandem, or he could fill out Kyle fuller's spot (1 of the 2 corners that are upcoming free agents) who is expected to leave.

9. 49ers: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

The niners need help in the secondary. They already have a decent slot defender (K'Waun Williams), but they need an outside corner. They draft Jackson who is the best outside corner in the draft. Denzel ward is better overall but, josh is better on the outside.

10. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

The raiders help their defense by getting the best inside linebacker of the draft. Taking Roquan will fill one the holes they have on defense.

11. Dolphins: Rashaan Evans, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Name the Dolphins current ILB.

Evans is the best ILB available in this point of the draft.

12. Bengals: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

They lost 2 elite players on their O-line last year to free agency. The bengals couldn't overcome the O-line issues. The Bengals draft the best available tackle in the draft.

13. Redskins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

They gave up 134.1 rush yards per game (worst in the league). Getting this monster in the middle would help out a lot.

14. Packers: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU

The Packers need help on defense. They also need to give Aaron Rodgers a run game. Getting Guice will make their offense more balanced, which will help out Rodgers, and help the defense by controlling time of possession.

15. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

The cardinals are a championship level team without a QB. People have questioned his accuracy throwing the football. With the cardinals it may not be a problem. They already have a top 3 RB (David Johnson) which means he won't have to throw it 30 or 40 times a game. Plus, they could simplify the offense and make it an up tempo offense like the panthers did with Cam in his rookie year.

16. Ravens: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Everybody knows that the ravens have a great defense. They looked like they found a good run game last year. They are a good playmaking receiver away from being a top 3 team in the AFC. Ridley is has good talent and could be the guy who puts them over the top.
