Round 1

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

Abosolute, slam-dunk pick at #1 overall. Tyrod Taylor is not the man of the future, so you need to asses that here. Darnold has issues with turning the ball over, but his rain-soaked pro day proved he's got what it takes to be the man in Cleveland

2. Giants: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

The Giants need somone to take over for Eli, but the G-Men aren't gonna let him go within the next two years. They have no superstar on the offense other than Odell, and they need a guy like Barkley to take the pressure off Eli and Odell. The addition of Nate Solder is also a key here

3. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

I've been high on Josh Allen from day one. He's got the physical stature and the arm strength to help negat that swirling wind when playin in the home stadium. Allen did play at a small school, but he will be a big-time star in the NFL. The good recieving corps aroud him will help him learn and grow

4. Browns: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

With the best player possibly ever associated with the franchise hanging up the cleats, the Browns need help on the O.Line. But don't be surprised if they look to trade this pick away. Other QB needy teams ( Broncos, Bills, Dolphins, Cardinals) may be giving a call for this 4th overall pick

5. Broncos: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

If the Browns don't trade away the pick at 4, if Rosen is here Elway runs to the phones to call to send in this pick. I see a lot of Elway in Rosen and he could be the answer at the QB position in Denver for the next decade plus

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

One of the best talents in the draft goes to the team that would've originally picked him at 3 had they not traded away thier pick. Chris Ballard (Colt's GM) is also arrested for highway robbery for stealing the picks the Jets gave up for the Colts to get who they wanted all along. Well on them.

7. Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The first of many stars of the National Champion Alabama defense goes here at pick 7. Fitzpatrick has the skill and football knowledge to be the next Earl Thomas. Buccaneers have the best safety now to put on that uniform since John Lynch

8. Bears: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

Originally I had the Bears picking Calvin Ridley here, but with all the off-season additions to the recieving corps, he's no longer needed. When I think of the Bears my mind automatically goes to defense, specifialy the MLB position. Roquan Smith becomes the next leader from the middle, just like Butkus and Brian Urlacher

9. 49ers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Ward is a day-1 starter beside Sherman, making that defense even scarier than a lot of people thought it would be going into the season

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

Edmunds is an athetic freak and will fit nicely in that scheme, taking over for Bowman (who left after just one season with the team. Granted the Raiders would've wanted to get Ward, but they're happy with the pick in Edmunds

11. Dolphins: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

Adam Gase gets his guy. Tannehill doesn't make the 53 man roster (wether it be from trade or release) and Gase needs a confident and accurate passer to run that offense. Granted it won't be as easy with Jarvis Landry being gone, but there's enough talent to help Baker Mayfield possibly win the ROTY

12. Bills: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

NOTE: I DO NOT THINK THEY WILL BE DRAFTING AT THIS POSITION. But with this draft being one as is, with no extra trades, the Bils are on the outise looking in on the QB race. They get a quality player at 12 none-the-less with the best WR in this year's class. Hopefully whatever is up with Zay Jones gets cleared up, becasue they could possibly be the best YOUNG 1-2 reciever pairing in the league. Now Buffalo just has to find someone to throw to them

13. Redskins: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

The gain of Alex Smith also meant the loss of Kenall Fuller. Vita Vea would also be a good pick here to help bolster the defensive line, but Mr. Interception from Iowa is hard to pass up

14. Packers: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Steal pick here for the Pack if McGlinchey is still on the board. He'll compete for a starting job and could possibly win it. If the Packers are going to go anywhere this year, it will be on the arm of Aaron Rodgers and you have to keep him healthy.

15. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

There is about a 60/40 shot that the Cardinals, in my mind, stay at pick 15. Sam Bradford is NOT the answer at QB, not even for this season. Rudolph is also a pick that Arizona may consider here as well if Jackson is somehow off the board or they want more of a pure pocket passer

16. Ravens: Rashaan Evans, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

May possibly be a little higher than would be expected from Evans on draft day, but there's no denying the guy is a playmaker and a starter in the NFL. He's got the size and skill and could transition to the NFL quite nicely
