Round 1

1. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Allen has a huge arm and prototypical size for an NFL QB. Plus he can sit for 2 years under Taylor before he starts. Allen appears to be the favorite as Darnold doesn't' have the arm strength, Rosen is a head case, Mayfield is short and Jackson has gone of the deep end not hiring an agent.

2. Giants: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

The Giants really like Darnold and they need a future QB. Manning is done, he got benched last year. All this talk about going with Manning is smoke screen. Darnold can sit for at least a year behind Manning.

3. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

I would take Mayfield but the Jets will probably take Rosen because he has great ability and size. Hopefully they can manage him and his social media, pre-madonna lifestyle.

4. Bills: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

With the run on QB's the Bills trade with the Browns (#12 and #22) so they can take a QB. Mayfield is the last of the 4 top QB's. I personally think he has the tools to succeed and Buffalo made the playoffs last year so they have a sold team.

5. Broncos: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

The Broncos want a new RB and Barkley is actually available at #5 so the Broncos are thrilled.

6. Colts: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Nelson is a stud OG and will be a Pro Bowler for the next 10-12 years plus the Colts actually need to protect their franchise QB so he doesn't get hurt again.

7. Buccaneers: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

The Bucs badly need a DE so they are head over heels that he falls to #7. he can be a base 4-3 end.

8. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

The Bears aren't in a great spot and the Cardinals really need a QB since Bradford is so fragile. Jackson has all the tools in the world and just needs coached up. I am not sure why he didn't hire in agent. The Cards need a QB and they trade their #15 pick and #47 for the #8 pick.

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

The need LB help and Edmunds can play all 4 LB positions in a 3-4.

10. Raiders: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

They need 2 OT's and McGlinchey is the best in the draft. He immediately makes the RT problem go away and should be able to be LT in a year or two.

11. Dolphins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

They release Suh so why not replace him with another huge DT.

12. Browns: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Ward is the best CB available in the draft and even though they signed several free agents at CB none of them are young and Ward could be a #1 shut down CB.

13. Redskins: Da'Ron Payne, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Of their needs Payne is the best value as he should be able to be a stud NT.

14. Packers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Fitzpartick is a very solid player but I don't think he is top 10 talent. He is not super athletic nor did he put up great numbers despite playing for the best college defense. Don't get me wrong, he is a very solid player and should help the Packers immediately.

15. Bears: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

James is very athletic and has great potential. He has an injury history. He is a good value at #15.

16. Ravens: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

Jackson ran a fast 40 time at his pro day and the Ravens need a CB. Jackson has the size and style of play that I think the Ravens would like.
