After a stellar combine by Barkley and Allen, it puts the browns into to a tough position. I think both QB and RB will be filled for the browns with the signing of McCarron and Jeremy Hill but I think at the end the take Allen to sit and develop
Giants have to watch what the browns do the closest. If they take Barkley at one then every QB is on the board and they can use that as leverage to bring in a huge draft haul. But they can't afford to miss on Barkley if he falls to them.

I think the Jets are prepared to go all in and make a trade up. To get ahead of the browns no. But to prevent the Broncos from moving to this spot and taking the QB they want. I personally don't think Darnold had a good combine because he didn't throw. But it doesn't appear to hurt his draft stock. I believe to Jets would sign Bradford giving Darnold time to sit for a year.
The Browns take the future of their offense with their first pick, so with their 2nd pick they take the best defensive player on the board to help solidify their young defense.
Broncos are unable to move up and must watch two QBs go ahead of them. But I think they get a steal with Baker Mayfield. I think Mayfield will be the best day one starter of all the rookie QBs if he manages to fall to the Broncos.
With the colts trading down and with the amount of QBs going in the top 5, I think 3 of the top 5 players fall into the colts lap. With Nelson possibly being the safest pick in the draft I think the Colts add to their horrid offensive line.
The Bucs are loving the QBs at the top because it let the best pass rusher fall to them. This would be a huge win for the organization that needs to make the playoffs this next year.
21st overall pick
22nd overall pick
2019 2nd round pick
8th overall pick
105th overall pick
The Bills have two 1st round picks in a very good draft class. They can either stay and take the best players available or stop one of the QBs from falling and scooped them up. The QB in this situation is Rosen who can sit for a year behind Tyrod.
With Rueben Foster having issues of the field, the 49ers should take Edmunds here in order to keep the hot streak they had at the end of the year going. Edmunds is an amazing player and would form a great LB tandem if Foster stops causing problems.
Although he didn't have a great combine, Smith certainly didn't have a bad one. The Raiders need a lot on defense but re signing bowman and putting smith next to him would be a great step forward.
The Dolphins made the playoffs two years ago with a strong running game lead by Jay Ajayi and a great offensive line. With Ajayi gone and RT James likely leaving via free agency the Dolphins need to upgrade the O line. Drafting Williams will allow the Dolphins to put Tunsil at guard where he plays better.
19th overall pick
81st overall pick
2019 3rd Round pick
12th overall pick
The cowboys need to do something with Dez. Either cut him or draft him a counterpart so he isn't the only outside threat. Calvin Ridley would be a solid #2 WR and would be great as the #1 if they want to move on from Dez in the coming years.
Redskins missed out on Ridley so they decide to make the move to improve their secondary. Denzel Ward had a great combine and after giving up Fuller in the Smith trade, this fills one of the Redskins holes.
The Packers are in a golden spot. They got a new GM who looks to be willing to improve the talent around Rodgers. If the packers manage to sign Wilkerson and then have Davenport fall too them in the first round, then the defense overall will improve because of the tremendous pass rush the Packers would have with Clark, Daniels, Wilkerson, Matthews, Perry and now Davenport.
The Cardinals were not able to trade up and get any of the top 4 QBs but ended up having the most dynamic one fall too them. Jackson is being compared to Vick and if Jackson does manage to live up to those expectations then the cardinals will be on of the top teams in the league over the next few years.
I loved what Kirk did at the combine. I think he really helped his stock to where he can be the 2nd WR off of the board. And with the Ravens needing WRs and Ridley being gone, I think Kirk is the pick.
