Hey Guys! My first Mock Draft is based on the current Draft Order, but it will include the most likely trade at this point between the Giants and the Bills. Have fun with reading the perfect Mock Draft and please rate it ;)

Round 1

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

The Browns can't risk to not get their QB of the future. Recent Brwons Drafts have shown that trading back in the first round and pick a QB later isn't always the best idea. So they get the best QB of the draft in Sam Darnold.

2. Bills: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

TRADE ALERT: Giants receive 12th and 22nd overall picks; Bills recieve 2nd overall pick!
A quick look at the current QB situation from the Bills isn't very promising. They aren't happy with AJ McCarron as their starting QB. The trade with the Bengals to get to the 12th overall spot was the first step, the trade with the Giants is the final step for their next franchise QB.
For now my guess is that the Bills go for Josh Rosen, but this can change over the next weeks.

3. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The Jets sold a lot of draft capital to the Colts to make sure they get their next franchise QB. You don't give up three second rounders in the next 2 years to get a RB or DE.
After Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen went within the first two picks, the Jets go with the QB which has the highest ceiling. Josh Allen will sit behing Teddy Bridgewater in year 1 (or at least until Teddy will get injured) and he can get familiar with the NFL speed.

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

With their first pick, the Browns got their franchise QB and because of another QB driven draft they get their favourite player in Saquon Barkley with the 4th overall pick.
Barkley is without a doubt the best player in the draft, because of that there is also the possibility that he goes 2nd overall to the Giants if they choose to not trade back.

5. Broncos: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

This one isn't for sure, because it is not unlikely that some QB needy team jumps to No. 4 overall to get in front of the Broncos. But this draft only includes obvious trades so the Broncos get the most NFL-ready QB.
This would be one of the most interesting trainigcamp battles between Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum.

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

The Colts go for the best defender in the draft, who drops to 6th overall because of a QB heavy draft.
The Colts will choose between DE Chubb and OG Nelson, so there could be a change within the next few weeks.

7. Buccaneers: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Buccaneers try to improve their OL to give Jameis Winston more time, so he can get back to his 2016 performance.
For now they get the 2nd best player of the draft in Quenton Nelson, which gets already forecasted to an All-Pro-Career.

8. Bears: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

In Free Agency the Bears tried to add weapons for last years first round pick Mitchell Trubisky. They brought in Allen Robinson and Trey Burton.
So they decide to go Defense this year in round one.
In Minkah Fitzpatrick they get a versatile DB who can play both, Safety and Cornerback.

9. 49ers: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

With Rishard Sherman in town, the 49ers solved their problems at the CB position. Now they get a big playmaker at LB with Tremaine Edmunds.

10. Raiders: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

After losing the coinflip to the 49ers, the Raiders have to select at the 10th spot of the 2018 NFL draft. The biggest splash in the Offseason was made by the Raiders, by getting Jon Gruden back to the NFL. In Free Agency the focus was on getting the Offense back to where it left in 2016. So they go Defense with their first selection in the Draft.
With Vita Vea they get a big run-stuffer, which they lacked the past few years.

11. Dolphins: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

The Dolphins would like to trade up and grad one of the 4 top QB prospects, but they couldn't get a deal done. So they descide to go All-In on Lamar Jackson, who will learn under Ryan Tannehill until Ryan gets hurt.
So we can expect to see Lamar Jackson in year 1 on the field rather sooner than later.

12. Giants: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

TRADE ALERT: Giants receive 12th and 22nd overall picks; Bills recieve 2nd overall pick!
The Giants trade out of the 2nd overall pick because they don't love a QB enough to invest the pick on him. So they descide to collect more quality picks and go with their biggest need in round one.
Even with Nate Solder at LT, their OL isn't very promising. With Mike McGlinchey they get the best OT in the draft and he will start at RT from the beginning. Ereck Flowers will have to play Guard or he will get traded.

13. Redskins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Redskins go best player available with their pick and grab Derwin James, who a lot of people have graded as a top 10 pick.

14. Packers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

After the big struggels in their secondary over the past few years, the Packers are very happy to see Denzel Ward available at No. 14 overall.
With him they get the best CB of the draft.

15. Cardinals: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

The top 5 QB prospect are already gone, so the Cardinals won't get their QB of their future in this years first round. With Sam Bradford as their starting QB they will adress this need in the next rounds, because nobody knows how long Bradford will stay on the field before he gets injured again.
Because they missed on the QBs the Cardinals will get a solid reciever who can play the opposite side from Larry Fitzgerald.

16. Ravens: Kolton Miller, Offensive Tackle, UCLA

When the Ravens want to stay relevant, they have to protect Joe Flacco better, so he has more time to throw. Their O-Line was medicre the past few years, so they are looking for an upgrade on tackle. They go with Kolton Miller this time.
