Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Darnold seems like the most prototypical QB in the class. Turnovers have been an issue for Darnold, but a year under Tyrod Taylor will improve that.

2. Bills: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

TRADE! - The Bills are not going to strut out Nate Peterman or AJ McCarron as their QB of the future. Allen needs to develop, but his physical capabilities are unparalleled in this class.

3. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The Jets boldly traded up to #3 to get the third QB of the class. They also signed Teddy B to a one year deal. This allows for Rosen to sit if need-be.

4. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

The Browns could go a multitude of ways with Saquon, Bradley Chubb, or Minkah Fitzpatrick. Barkley instantly improves their offense.

5. Broncos: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Broncos dealt Aqib Talib which thinned out their secondary. Adding a versatile player Fitzpatrick immediately improves the already stout Denver D.

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

It's not ever year a team can trade down three picks and get arguably the most devastating player in a class. Chubb gives the Colts their best pass rusher since Freeney and Mathis.

7. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Buccaneers need to improve their secondary, and James' athleticism and playmaking will be huge additions to their team.

8. Bears: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Chicago may get the steal of the draft with Nelson at #8. He shores up the protection for the Mitch Trubisky and can open lanes for Jordan Howard.

9. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

TRADE! - The Cardinals are not in a position that they can guarantee they'll get one of the top QB's. Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon are not the answer, so the Cardinals risk it with Mayfield.

10. Raiders: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

Edmunds' freakish athleticism and potential beat out Roquan Smith. Edmunds can be all over the field while still being a pass rushing force.

11. Dolphins: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

Letting go of Ndamukong Suh opens up a hole on the D-line, but Smith's talent is too much to pass up given that the Dolphins are not to set at LB.

12. Giants: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

TRADE! - The Giants move down and still get a top tier prospect. Eli Apple has not shown he can be a viable starter, and the friction between him and Landon Collins didn't just vanish.

13. Redskins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

They took Jonathan Allen last year, but he's the only reason for hope along Washington's D-line. Vea adds depth and talent.

14. Packers: Mike Hughes, Cornerback, Central Florida

I thought that trading Damarious Randall was bit curious given that the Packers are far from set at CB. There is not a lot of consensus on who is the next best CB after Denzel Ward, but I think they go Hughes.

15. 49ers: Marcus Davenport, Defensive End, Texas-San Antonio

TRADE! - The 49ers gather some picks and still get the guy they've been rumored to like. Davenport gives them an elite pass rusher, something they've been searching for since Aldon Smith.

16. Ravens: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

The Ravens are not set on the O-line, so adding a player like McGlinchey instantly improves protection for Flacco.
