Round 1

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

Troy Aikman said "The Giants are now on the clock" after watching Sam Darold's Pro Day. Seems like a lock as the top pick in the draft

2. Giants: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Grooming Allen to be their next quarterback for the next decade is the smart choice for the Giants. Allen can learn behind Eli Manning and hopefully develop into a Carson Wentz 2.0

3. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The most pro-ready QB of the class...this is very important since the Jets don't have much weapons on offense. In addition, Teddy Bridgewater is still a question mark and could give Rosen some competition in training camp

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

The dream scenario for the Browns is to grab the best QB in the draft and the best offensive player in the draft. Darnold, Barkley, Landry, Corey Coleman, and a good O-line will take the league by storm and win about 5 games next year.

5. Broncos: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Pairing Von Miller with the best pass rusher in this year's draft class will cause AFC West quarterbacks to wet themselves

6. Colts: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

My favorite player in the class is Minkah Fitzpatrick. Matt Patricia is a defensive guru and will figure out where to play the versatile Fitzpatrick (FS or nickel corner). Pairing up Hooker and Fitzpatrick will help them contain Deshaun Watson and Marcus Mariota in their division.

7. Bills: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Bills jump up and grab their quarterback of the future. The Bill's get a dynamic playmaker help boost this struggling offense.

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

It is rare for guards to be drafted in the top 10...well, Nelson is a rare talent. Stabilizing a cornerstone offensive lineman for Mitch Trubisky is a crucial step for the Bears

9. 49ers: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Getting an offensive weapon for Jimmy G

10. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

A playmaking linebacker is what Jon Gruden loves...just look at Roquan's tape against Oklahoma and Alabama last season

11. Dolphins: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

The Dolphins will be rolling with Ryan Tannehill for one more season as Edmunds falls into their lap.

12. Buccaneers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

After seeing Vernon Hargraves III twitter video as he is smoking a "substance" I think it is safe to say that the Bucs will be looking some secondary help. After all, the play in a division with Drew Brees, Cam Newton, and Matt Ryan.

13. Redskins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

A versatile safety who creates havoc in the secondary. A favorite player of mine as I hope that my Dallas Cowboys trade up for him. Unfortunately, I see them playing against James twice a year

14. Packers: Mike Hughes, Cornerback, Central Florida

A pick that may surprise people but I see Hughes as the second rated cornerback in this draft class.

15. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

The Cardinals reach for a QB and get Jackson. I am not a fan of him because I don't see a high ceiling player in the NFL. He reminds me of a Tyrod Taylor more than a Michael Vick (player Jackson has been compared to). Inaccuracy and pocket awareness are two concerns I have with him
