The Browns are not very good when it comes to developing young QBs. They draft Barkley who will help take some pressure of a young QB. Plus, they have Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon which is good too.
Dave Gettleman seems to think that Manning has a couple of years left in him. Thats why taking Allen here is the perfect choice. The Giants can't wait till next year to get their QB of the future. They are a very talented team that won't have the 2nd overall pick again next year. Allen can sit for a year or two and learn the offense from new head coach Pat Shurmur.
The Jets traded up 3 spots to draft a QB that they know for sure won't be there at #6. Darnold is the guy.
Everybody seems to think that Lamar Jackson is not a good thrower of the football. When his mechanics are right, he can throw it very well, he just needs to be more consistent with it. Plus, he has a cannon for an arm. Cleveland can sit him behind Tyrod for a year and then let him share the backfield with Saquon Barkley.
The Broncos signed Case Keenum to be their starting QB. But I'm not sure if they trust Keenum enough to not draft a QB. Drafting Mayfield would heat up the QB competition in Denver and almost completely guarantee a productive starter at QB.
The guy they were going to draft at #3 falls to their lap at #6. The Colts don't need to trade down anymore. They have 3 picks in the 2nd round. Drafting Nelson would help protect Luck and open up running lanes for their RB.
They helped out their D-line by adding Vinny Curry and JPP. But, both guys are 29 years old and may start to slow down a bit. Chubb can help out D-line for next year and for many years to come.
A young and talented defense gets even better with Edmunds. The bears have a strong secondary with Kyle Fuller and Amos. They have a solid D-line. Drafting Edmunds will make their defense even better. If they play to their potential, they can make the playoffs.
The niners' defense is led by Richard Sherman. Drafting young defensive players and developing them would be great. Fitzpatrick is a smart player and can do a little bit of everything in the secondary which makes that secondary very versatile.
The raiders' defense hasn't been good the last couple of years. They signed Whitehead at linebacker which is good. They signed 3 DBs in free agency. They signed 1 D-lineman. Vea can draw double teams in the middle and help stop the run.
The Dolphins don't have a starting caliber ILB. They released Timmons and need to address the linebacker position. Roquan can fly from sideline to sideline.
The bills made the playoffs last year. They can draft a pro ready guy who is a fantastic pocket passer.
The redskins had the worst run defense last year.
Losing Randall is not good. Drafting Ward is very good. Pairing him up with Kevin King would be a very good start to improving that defense.
The cardinals need a QB. But, they are taking a shot with bradford. If that experiment works, great. If it doesn't the cardinals will probably have a higher pick in next year's draft which is a better opportunity to get their QB of the future. In the mean time, they can get a WR to play and learn behind Fitzgerald.
They have a great defense, and they seem to have found a nice running game with Alex Collins. Drafting a guy that can jump up and win 50-50 balls is going to help their offense a lot.
