Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Giants: Justin Herbert, Quarterback, Oregon

round 2, pick 34: Yodny Cajuste - OT - West Virginia

Needs QB, DL, OT

The Giants need an answer at QB, and Herbert is the only passer who's worth the top slot at this stage. For this to work, they'll have to get better up front; Yodny Cajuste is a snag to hopefully plug a hole on either side of this struggling o-line.

2. 49ers: Nick Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State

round 2, pick 33: N'Keal Harry - WR - Arizona State

Needs Edge, CB, WR

An injury sustained earlier this season won't keep the younger Bosa out of the top-3, and if he turns out anything like his brother, he's a steal anywhere past no. 1. This lets the 49ers move Arik Armstead back to the inside, and this San Francisco team has one of the most imposing front fours in football. N'Keal Harry is a tremendous value outside the first frame, and he'll be a perfect compliment to Marquise Goodwin over on the other sideline.

3. Raiders: Ed Oliver, Defensive Tackle, Houston

round 2, pick 35: Bryce Love - RB - Stanford

Needs Edge, DB, WR

The Raiders need to replace Khalil Mack, first and foremost, but the selection of Nick Bosa pushes the draft board down one spot. They'll pick up the next Aaron Donald while they can, and patch holes with their two subsequent first rounders. Bryce Love is a long-term solution at running back, with Marshawn Lynch getting even more up there in age, and his breakaway speed will add a dimension to this offense they haven't seen since Darren McFadden.

4. Bills: Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

round 2, pick 37: Quinnen Williams - DT - Alabama

Needs OL, WR, CB

Josh Allen is trying his best, but there's little he can do with the blockers in front of him. Jonah Williams is a career left tackle and a sure pick here at no. 4. Quinnen Williams will fill in for Marcell Dareus and, eventually, Kyle Williams. His added pressure should allow this quick secondary to hop on more hurried passes, as well.

5. Cardinals: Greg Little, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss

round 2, pick 36: Kendall Sheffield - CB - Ohio State

Needs OL, WR, CB

Greg Little fills a big hole with his ability to play either side on day one. "Mr. Reliable" should be nice addition to this offense, and we will get to see more of Josh Rosen if he has a little more time in the pocket. On the defensive side, Kendall Sheffield is a speedy corner that will form a nice duo with Patrick Peterson for the near future.

6. Browns: David Edwards, Offensive Tackle, Wisconsin

round 2, pick 38: Julian Love - CB - Notre Dame

Needs CB, WR, OT

Joe Thomas stand-in, and that's enough said. Julian Love is an instant start opposite Denzel Ward. Add a better-protected Mayfield to a more-balanced secondary, and this could very well be the year we see Cleveland get over the hump.

7. Colts: Derrick Brown, Defensive Tackle, Auburn

round 2, pick 39 (via Jets): Anfernee Jennings - OLB - Alabama
round 2, pick 42: Chase Winovich - DE - Michigan

Needs DL, WR, CB

Derrick Brown compares favorably to Ndamukong Suh, and he'd be the top selection in any other class. OL-hungry teams pushed him out of the top-5, and the Colts will be happy to cement the front of their young 4-3. Anfernee Jennings will start at a position the colts have refused to patch up for a stretch, and he plays like a stand-up Terrell Suggs, if you know what I mean. Chase Winovich adds to a pass rush that let Mingo and Simon walk last season, again exposing its ineffectivity.

8. Broncos: Drew Lock, Quarterback, Missouri

TRADE w/ JETS: 3-5 (DEN sends Shaquil Barrett, 2:41 and 2020-1st for 1:8)

NEW YORK J. Needs OL, Edge, WR

The Broncos leapfrog the Jaguars to secure their QB of the future, who can start right away or wait a year out under Case Keenum: I think this is the poor-man's Smith/Mahomes combo. They secure Rashan Gary, another top-3 talent plagued by this class' stacked-ness at DT, at pick 10, and are happy to trade Barrett to a Jets team hungry for an established rusher, putting full faith in Bradley Chubb moving forward. Since I love comparisons so much- Von Miller and Bradley Chubb = Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis? We'll see.

9. Jaguars: Ryan Finley, Quarterback, N.C. State

round 2, pick 40: Kelvin Harmon - WR - N.C. State

Needs QB, WR, OL

The Jaguars would likely opt for Ryan Finley over Drew Lock even if the Broncos hadn't jumped them, as they would like to stray a little further from the Bortles-mold moving forward. That said, it's time for a change under center in Jacksonville. In round 2, they give Finley his favorite target and get this team ready for another playoff run.

10. Broncos: Rashan Gary, Defensive Tackle, Michigan

round 2, pick 41 (JETS): Andre Dillard - OT - Washington State

Needs QB, CB, OL

The Jets added to their pass rush in a trade down and can focus on fixing what might be the worst o-line in football. If you're noticing a trend here, there are four rookie quarterbacks with off-the-charts potential being held back by their blockers; this draft should turn the page for all of them.

11. Titans: Josh Allen, 3-4 Outside Linebacker, Kentucky

round 2, pick 47: Collin Johnson - WR - Texas
Needs WR, TE, OLB

The Titans add a versatile playmaker to an position group that will see a lot of bye-byes in the next few years, and then pick up a 6'6" target to give Mariota an endzone look in place of the departed Rishard Matthews.

12. Raiders: Brian Burns, Defensive End, Florida State

via Cowboys: 3-4
round 2, pick 43 (COWBOYS): Taylor Rapp - S - Washington


The Raiders get their man here, a future pro-bowler in Brian Burns, and we can start to move on from Khalil Mack a little easier.

As for the Cowboys, Taylor Rapp is a day-one starter at the only position left to fill on defense. We've yet to see how Amari Cooper works into their offense, but they could be back on the brink of playoff contention with the return of Travis Frederick.

13. Lions: Montez Sweat, Defensive End, Mississippi State

round 2, pick 44: D.K. Metcalf - WR - Ole Miss

Needs DB, Edge, TE

The Lions desperate need an end across from Ziggy Ansah,while D.K. Metcalf is a third big body in a now-monstrous receiving core that won't be missing Golden Tate or Eric Ebron.

14. Buccaneers: Greedy Williams, Cornerback, LSU

round 2, pick 45: Daniel Jones - QB - Duke

Needs CB, S, QB

Greedy Williams is the top corner in this draft, and again, only fell because of an abundance of star D- and O- T's . He'll plug in with Vernon Hargreaves when the latter returns from injury, and Brent Grimes might be able to play another season at safety, patching up that need for a while. In the second frame, Daniel Jones is a possible replacement for Jameis Winston without any long-term commitments.

15. Falcons: Raekwon Davis, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

round 2, pick 46: Connor McGovern - OG - Penn State

Needs DT, OG, Edge

The Falcons would be ecstatic if Raekwon Davis fell to them, and in this scenario he did, so case closed. He's the best player available, and he fills a big need. Next up, Connor McGovern will plug into an interior line that's barren aside from Alex Mack and the Falcons might squeeze a few more top-tier years out of Matt Ryan.

16. Dolphins: A.J. Brown, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss

round 2, pick 51 (RAMS): Terry Beckner Jr. - DT - Missouri

Needs DE, QB, WR

A mid-tier finish gives Ryan Tannehill a year of breathing room (that, and the lack of worthy QBs here), and they should give him something he's never had: a true no. 1 option on the outside.

For the Rams, Terry Beckner is a boom-or-bust player that will fill in for Ndamukong (unless we see a Warriors-esque resigning) and keep this defense in the best-of-the-best conversation.
