  1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB/WR, Oklahoma
    Kyler Murray: 78.6%
    Nick Bosa: 15.1%
    Quinnen Williams: 6.3%
    Total votes: 458

    Wesley C: As Walt likes to say “New regimes mean new quarterbacks.” Kingsbury is on record gushing over Murray. Rosen goes to Pittsburgh for the 3rd they got from Oakland

    RDGS: Murray is the easiest pick in the draft if AZ stays at #1 and isn’t trolling for a trade down.

    Aiden: I feel the Cards shouldn’t move on from Rosen yet, next years class will have quality Quarterbacks as well. However, Kliff Kingsbury is infatuated with Murray and unless he’s bluffing, Kyler Murray can expect to play in Glendale. Perhaps hiring a coach who couldn’t even lead Texas Tech above .500 wasn’t a great decision

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
    Nick Bosa: 61.4%
    Quinnen Williams: 35.1%
    Josh Allen: 3.5%
    Total votes: 635

    Grant R: While Bosa would give the 49ers an excellent pairing with newly acquired Dee Ford, Williams strength and agility up the middle, as well as youth, would be too tempting for John Lynch to pass up.

    David S: If the 49ers were truly torn between Quinnen Williams and Nick Bosa, trading for Dee Ford seems to give them the excuse to draft Williams over Bosa.

    Ken A: This pick is easy. The 49ers couldn’t rush the passer last year. Bosa fits their scheme better than Allen. With high draft picks already anchoring the interior of the D-line it’s hard to imagine them drafting Williams. Bosa is the pick.

    Tim H: Bosa is a beast. Him at #2 to 49ers: take it to the bank.

    Aiden: For me, Quinnen Williams and Nick Bosa are the top prospects of the draft. For me, I would chose Bosa. I feel he’s more versatile and can play anywhere on the D-Line whether it be Tackle or End. I could even see him slide up to play as a Linebacker or even a Mark Barronesque Safety if needs be. Sure the time he took off and the injury are concerning. But Ohio State was visibly weaker without him, and he’s a once in a lifetime impact player. I wouldn’t fault the Niners for taking Williams however, he’s a Goliath who will do damage.

    Ryan: Ideally, I think the 49ers trade down here because they have greater needs than on the D line. They signed Dee Ford and they also have the likes of Deforest Buckner, Arik Armstead, and Solomon Thomas. The latter two could be considered busts, however, and Bosa or Williams would be an upgrade for both of them. Quinnen Williams is the better athlete of the two, and sources say the 49ers are gushing over Williams. However, Bosa would make more sense to me because Buckner, Armstead, and Thomas can all play on the interior defensive line.

    Matt: Tricky pick for the 49ers in this situation. I don’t think the team are admiring Bosa, so that leaves Allen and Williams. Williams is the best player in the draft, but picking him would mean giving up on Solly Thomas. I really believe the pick is Josh Allen – solving the 49ers OLB problem and giving them a pass rusher in passing downs

    Andrew W: Quinnen Williams looks to be the most likely option if no trade occurs. He fits the bigger current need for SF

  3. New York Jets: Josh Allen, DE/LB, Kentucky
    Josh Allen: 59.7%
    Quinnen Williams: 33.7%
    D.K. Metcalf: 3.5%
    Jawaan Taylor: 2.5%
    Rashan Gary: 0.7%
    Total votes: 285

    Andy Q: The “Wall of Williams” must be built. Pairing Leo and Quinnen together instantly creates a fierce defensive front; it isn’t necessarily a huge need but QW is arguably the best player in this class so I think the Jets pull the trigger.

    Mike Maccagnan: In this situation, with the inability to trade down, it comes down to one of Quinnen Williams and Josh Allen. While Quinnen Williams is the better prospect here, the Jets already have a lot of interior lineman and will go for Josh Allen to improve a mediocre outside linebacker group.

    Ken A: The Jets are switching to the 4-3 on defense under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. They need an edge rusher, while I believe Allen is better suited for the 3-4, I still believe he is the pick here. His pass rushing ability will make him to hard to pass up. Williams will have to be creative to get the most out of the best pure pass rusher in this draft class.

    Justin U: With two interior pass rushers already on the roster the Jets will pass up Q Williams and go for the edge presence they haven’t had since John Abraham. This isn’t the best player available but Allen isn’t a far drop and the selection fills a huge need in Greg Williams new defense.

    Aiden: I like Allen, don’t get me wrong, but Quinnen Williams is a different beast. If the Jets really want to make the smart move, trade trade trade! I saw Allen at the Citrus Bowl and he performed well and made McSorely look like a pathetic player. Then again McSorely is, well, a pathetic player. Quinn rn Williams is on arguably the greatest defense In CFB history! He led that defense. They made Kyler Murray look average, they made SEC look like Class 2 High School. Williams is the right call if you don’t trade, but Allen is alright

    Thomas M: In this scenario the Jets will trade down and get significant draft capital something like the browns did when they traded the number 2 overall pick a few years back and turned their franchise around instead of burning a top 5 pick on a QB with no supporting cast. It worked out ridiculously well for the browns as they are being seen as contenders now. However, the Jets need to improve pass rush they have invested resources to the DLine so I believe Allen would be the pick here.

    Kevin: The most likely thing to happen here is for the Jets to trade down with a team that wants a QB. Right behind them are the Raiders, who have been linked to QBs through rumours, prospect meetings, and Gruden’s interviews. Teams interested in QBs will want to jump them. The Jets meanwhile probably want to draft the best offensive player available. Maccagnan’s job security is tied to Darnold’s success (i.e. if Darnold is a star, Macc is safe even with another overall losing season.) The team’s last first-round offensive draft pick prior to Darnold was Mark Sanchez, a whole ten years ago. The Jets most likely want to continue improving the team around Darnold, and their fans continue to criticize them for neglecting the Oline. That said, if they stay in this spot, the pick will likely be Williams. Macc espouses BPA as his draft mantra, and he has backed that up in the first round. He drafted Leonard Williams over Vic Beasley when he already had Wilkerson, Richardson, and Harrison on the roster. Pairing up Q and L in the middle would free up a lot of LBs and free blitzers in Gregg Williams’s scheme.

    Shivam G: Getting a dominant player like Williams is a no brainer for the Jets in a no trade down scenario. Anchors the front 7, and can now start winning on defense to take pressure of Darnold

  4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
    Quinnen Williams: 71.1%
    Devin White: 12.0%
    Dwayne Haskins: 10.1%
    Rashan Gary: 6.9%
    Total votes: 160

    Thomas M: It’s going to be Williams or a trade. Taking a QB here would be a waste. Derek Carr may not be top tier but even the best will struggle with no supporting players. Cooper wasnt great but blew up on the cowboys. His line was battered and the backfield consisted of the lazy Doug Martin and a declining Lynch. The raiders need to give carr a better defense which was atrocious last year. Williams will go a long way toward that pairing with Hurst and Key on the edge and all of a sudden. Defensive line to respect. I would go white but Williams is a generational talent on the inside.

    Thomas W: If they really like Haskins, then fine, take him. Otherwise, Quinnen’s talent is too much to pass up. Five years from now, no one is going to care what your biggest need was in 2019. They’re going to care about All-Pro selections.

    Jon Gruden: Although people have connected the Raiders and Haskins, I don’t think that they move on from Carr yet, especially with a loaded quarterback class next year should Carr fail to perform. Using that assumption, it is clear that the Raiders would select Quinnen Williams since he is above the rest of the field in terms of skill level.

    Justin U: When best player available and top needs align, its a dream scenario. Q is the obvious choice here.

    Aiden J: As I’ve stated before Quinnen Williams is clearly a beast athlete and the player I’d pick if I was in the Raiders shoes, but I think the Raiders will pick Haskins. There was clearly some chemistry issues with Carr and Gruden last year, and despite Carr being understaffed, I feel that the person with a 10 year contract will win. Haskins would be lucky to land with the Raiders. He’ll come in to a receiving corps with Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams, and hopefully a fresh rookie Running Back. Both would be wise moves. Quinnen Williams could be the face of the Raiders defense who signed lots of players this year like Burfict and Joyner. Drafting him could very well make Oakland an all around threat. I believe they could even contend to make the playoffs this year

    Mark G: Clearly the option here is Quinnen Williams, which is a shame because he is going to the 49ers second overall. Dee Ford trade flipped the 49ers from Bosa to Williams as BPA that makes sense, and it’s too bad their fanbase that voted didn’t understand that. The Niners line will be base end Arik Armstead, nose tackle Quinnen Williams, under tackle Solomon Thomas and wide nine edge Dee Ford in their 403 Under base formation. Almost assuredly Arizona will take Murray, then 49ers take Williams, then the Jets are OTC and it will be tested if they for sure are remaining 3-4 (take Josh Allen) or 4-3 (take Nick Bosa). I am leaning towards the Jets remaining 3-4 taking Josh Allen who they finished courting at his proday, and the Raiders take Nick Bosa. The reason this will never happen in fan vote mock though is because there are months of “wow if only ___ passes on Bosa, then we can get him”. That mentality fails to deliver an accurate mock that takes into consideration moves that develop post-hype. Arizona is infatuated with a QB prospect that goes #1. The 49ers traded significant draft resources for Dee Ford to play the position Bosa would play and gave him a 5 year 85 million dollar extension, and Armstead is a good base end, and Thomas a top 5 pick at under tackle, the arguable BPA is Quinnen and he fits better. Then there is the Jets where Josh Allen fits as a do it all rush LB that not only can rush with advanced technique, but can be dropped into coverage with Darron Lee allowing Greg Williams to dial up disguised blitzes difficult to read. This is Khalil Mack falling to #5 for the Raiders all over again with Nick Bosa kicking off the Mayock Gruden era. Although that isn’t happening here as the 49ers voted to not take Williams so the picks are reversed. Williams would be a good pick by the Raiders here as well, but it’s not what I think happens.

  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White, LB, LSU
    Devin White: 49.6%
    Rashan Gary: 22.7%
    Jawaan Taylor: 15.1
    Ed Oliver: 7.6%
    Christian Wilkins: 1.7%
    Total votes: 119

    Aiden J: I must admit as a Bengals fan, I really hope that Devin White slides to the Bengals, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here. Devin White is a freak linebacker, he reminds me of a faster and slightly more gifted Patrick Willis. Since the Bucs lost Alexander, they haven’t properly replaced him. Devin White would seem to be a massive upgrade over Alexander. His freakish athleticism and playmaking abilities make him the best linebacker in this draft, and the best prospect in his position in the past 4 or 5 years. I am willing to bet Devin White’s name will go down in footballing history as one of the Greatest Linebackers ever.

    Jason Licht: This is a tough one, as all the top prospects that the Bucs would have like to have seen are now gone. Although they will eventually need to move on from Gerald McCoy, they just drafted Vita Vea last year and none of the top prospects seem to fit the traditional nose tackle build. As a result, I think that they look towards Devin White to improve a linebacking corps that needed help before losing Kwon Alexander to the 49ers.

  6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
    Dwayne Haskins: 56.2%
    Rashan Gary: 19.5%
    Jawaan Taylor: 10.1%
    Daniel Jones: 5.9%
    Drew Lock: 5.9%
    Jonah Williams: 2.4%
    Total votes: 169

    Aiden J: Eli Manning is a a shell of his former self. The former Patriot killer is killing his legacy by playing. It’s time for papa Eli to head to pasture and let Dwayne Haskins take over. In my opinion Dwayne Haskins should’ve won the Heisman Trophy over Kyler Murray. Haskins is NFL ready and has the skills to be a threat for years to come. I feel quite bad for him though. He’s about to go to a team who traded away their best asset in OBJ. The Giants need to make moves during the draft if they want to compete in the next few years

    Dave Gettleman: Although the Giants have said that they’re not that interested in Dwayne Haskins, this report is questionable considering that the Giants brass had dinner with him. I really think that they see Eli Manning as their starter for this year, but want to follow the Chiefs and Ravens models in acquiring a young signal-caller to study behind a veteran quarterback so that he can eventually become a future star.

    Dak: Just because the Giants need a QB, doesn’t mean they should reach and waste the #6 pick on one if they’re not sold. Giants brass has had dinner with other QB prospects, it doesn’t mean Haskins is their guy

    Andrew W: What makes sense to me is to finish the offensive line. Adding in a solid RT like Taylor should be a difference maker. I have no reason to believe any QB this year is a franchise Qb.

    Sam B: A QB makes sense, but judging by the OBJ trade and all the rumors about the Giants not liking Haskins, I think they are going to play the long game. I have a feeling they will wait until next years superior QB class and will instead select Jawaan Taylor with this pick. Give some blocking to Barkley and have an established LT to next years QB. It makes sense to me.

    Kevin: Gettleman has been lousy at his job, but he is not brainless. He has to realize that he is not surviving this year without a legitimate successor to Eli. In the first place, if this was any other team, Eli would have been gone two years ago; it is a safe bet that his backup is going to be shoved into the starting position this season. That means the Giants must draft a QB with their first pick. All the noise saying otherwise is a smokescreen. The choice then comes down to Haskins and Jones, and I think the organization has bigger ties to Jones.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
    Jawaan Taylor: 47.7%
    Rashan Gary: 16.8%
    D.K. Metcalf: 12.3%
    T.J. Hockenson: 9.0%
    Ed Oliver: 9.0%
    Jonah Williams: 5.2%
    Total votes: 157

    Aiden J: I really don’t know how the Jags managed to go from almost beating the Patriots in the AFC championship game to, well, whatever you call last season. Most of the blame however can be shoved on Blake Bortles. Now that Bortles has left, the Jags have replaced him St. Nicholas of Philadelphia house of Foles. Foles is good not great, a clear upgrade over Bortles, but he’s been plagued with inconsistency throughout his career in the NFL. A solid o-line should help him succeed. Jawaan Taylor was one the few bright spots for Florida in recent history. Normally, there are plenty of O-Line prospects in the draft, but this year, Taylor is the only sure thing. He’s the cream of the crop by a long distance, so I wouldn’t pass on the opportunity to take him

    Dave Caldwell: With all of the top prospects gone, Jacksonville is left with a choice between a DL prospect, an OL prospect or DK Metcalf. I think this is too high for Metcalf, and they just went DL last year, so I think they go with Taylor, who I think is the best OL on the market.

    Hurricane Ditka: I think if there was an actual top receiving prospect, the Jags would pair their new quarterback with a dynamic playmaker, and someone who could give Fournette space. It would also do wonders for their play action game. Unfortunately, this is not one of those years. That means, in order to improve the offense, they need to strengthen the offensive line. Jawan Taylor seems like a lock if he’s available. NFL size and mobility plus 3 years of SEC line play. I don’t know what else they could ask for.

    David S: Nick Foles and John DeFilippo come from Philadelphia, where the tight end is of significant importance. T.J. Hockenson is a double threat at the tight end spot; a fantastic receiver and blocker. A tight end may not offer the best positional value, but he’s the perfect fit for them.

  8. Detroit Lions: Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan
    Rashan Gary: 38.6%
    Ed Oliver: 26.2%
    Devin Bush: 8.9%
    T.J. Hockenson: 8.9%
    D.K. Metcalf: 6.4%
    Bruan Burns: 5.9%
    Christian Wilkins: 5.0%
    Total votes: 202

    Aiden J: Detriot needs a Linebacker and bad. While I think it’s possible they take Ed Oliver or Rashan Gary if they slide, I think one of the Devin’s will be their pick. They have a young offense around Matthew Stafford and a solid O-Line, so they shouldn’t mess with that. I can’t see them drafting any D-line as Snacks, Hand, and Robinson all had great seasons. They had a strong secondary, so they have to invest in a linebacker. If they don’t rate Bush that’s fine, but take Ed Oliver, he can slot into the OLB position. After Stafford’s stupid contract expires, I don’t see him playing at a starting capacity, he’ll be 34. So the Lions need to enter win now mode if they want to win with Stafford. If not, then there may be some movement in Detroit

    Joe B: Gary is Ansah 2.0 with all his injuries, and his diva attitude is not what this locker room needs. Oliver is not a fit, and Metcalf and Hockenson would cause a fan revolt. leaving Wilkins, Bush, and Burns as the only viable options. Assuming they don’t trade back with Atlanta who apparently covet Oliver, the value just isn’t there taking Burns and Wilkins, leaving Bush as the only choice in this scenario. Jarrad Davis needs help bad, and Bush should be the pick at #8, unless the coaches are absolutely convinced that Burns’ athleticism and football IQ could work as a 3-4 OLB. Devin Bush at #8 or a OL.

    Colin M: As a Lions fan, I agree with Thomas and Aiden. Oliver is a penetrating 3-tech that fits perfectly in a 1-gap scheme. The Lions use 2-gap DTs to eat up blocks, which isn’t Oliver. Gary blew up the underwear Olympics, but he’s the type of risky pick Quinn avoids. He wouldn’t be able to play DT for the same reasons as Oliver, and he’s a more athletic clone of D’Ashawn Hand, a promising starter. Neither would start from day one, neither fits the Lions scheme, and neither are the high character, safe picks our GM prefers. We’re loaded at DT, and need an outside pass-rush. I’d love to land White, but he’s not available. Bush is a bit small, and our scheme uses big linebackers. Because of his upside and pass rush ability I’m going Burns, but Hock wouldn’t surprise me. If you’re set on a DT, Wilkins seems like the high-character, versatile DT we’d prefer. We don’t really need a DT, but he’s a perfect scheme fit.

    Thomas W: Gary and Oliver being tied for the lead seems mistaken. Gary isn’t a proper edge rusher, and Oliver is of course not an LB. Do they need iDL? Burns would be a better choice to complement Flowers. Bush, Hock and Metcalf make sense, if you like them talent wise.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
    Ed Oliver: 45.6%
    D.K. Metcalf: 20.3%
    Jonah Williams: 13.2%
    T.J. Hockenson: 7.7%
    Cody Ford: 6.6%
    Andre Dillard: 3.9%
    Christian Wilkins: 2.8%
    Total votes: 182

    Aiden J: If this scenario holds out to be the NFL Draft, then oh boy are the Bills disappointed. Poor guys missed out on Rashan Gary, an edge back who would be a top defender any other draft class besides this, by one pick. Now the Bills will be forced to draft a non-natural edge player (I predict Ed Oliver) and hope they can transition into that position. For Ed Oliver, this is a loss as well. The pain of having to play in Buffalo is one that has driven wiser men mad, poor Jordan Matthews had a kid because he was so bored. On top of that, the Bills are perennial disappointments (this is coming from a Bengals fan). They made the playoffs once in the past 20 years, and did so on a mountain of corpses. They are tied for the worst record in super bowl history, and have no prospects of making it back there soon. Unfortunately for the Bills and Ed Oliver, no one wins here. The NFL Draft is cruel beasts, and both just happened to be its prey

    Brandon Beane: Since Kyle Williams’ retirement, the Bills have lacked a dominant interior presence. I think Ed Oliver is the best prospect here and he also fills a need, so he’s the pick for me.

    Joe B: Protect Josh at all costs! Dillard had the best combine among all OTs and he should be the pick, unless the staff feels they can coach up someone already on the roster. In that case, Oliver and Metcalf make the most sense, but I’d take Dillard to protect my QB.

    Thomas W: 3-tech DT is their obvious need, but they also have use for Edge (not nominated), OL, TE and WR. If you think Oliver is BPA, you have to take him. TBH, as a Bills fan, I suspect they may prefer Wilkins over Oliver due to a combination of character and size. In Carolina, McD had the larger Kawaan Short next to Star Loutelei.

  10. Denver Broncos: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
    Drew Lock: 62.8%
    T.J. Hockenson: 10.2%
    Devin Bush: 10.1%
    D.K. Metcalf: 4.1%
    Daniel Jones: 3.4%
    Cody Ford: 2.7%
    A.J. Brown: 0.7%
    Total votes: 148

    Aiden J: Drew Lock is the most Elway pick I can imagine. Poor Elway has had to let so many Elwaytypes slip past his fingers the past few years. He missed out on Josh Allen last year and Trubisky went too early for him to pick. Finally, a 6’4 220+ pound Quarterback with an average completion percentage from an average school has fallen to him. However, unlike Trubisky or Allen, Denver now has a Quarterback in which it can mentor their raw product. Do I think Drew Lock is slightly overrated? Yes. Do I think he will be the next Brady or Manning? No. Could he be a serviceable starter for the Broncos? Absolutely. I wouldn’t fault the Broncos for taking Drew Lock. Plus with a few years of mentoring, and few more successful top-10 picks, I could see the Broncos jumping right back to 2015 form.

    John Elway: With the trade for Flacco, it is clear that the Broncos are looking to follow the Chiefs’ and Ravens’ paths of developing their young starter behind an experienced veteran. Although Denver has other needs, this pick gives them a choice between two elite QB prospects. I think Lock is the pick here, as the Broncos have been higher on him and see his big arm as a great tool to build around.

    Nolan: Lock would have to be the pick here. Give him a year or so to learn behind Flacco and maybe get another top 10 pick next season to add a weapon for him. Broncos are a couple years away from competing again so groom your guy for a year get another weapon and maybe have some cap space to add enough other pieces to jump your window up to 2020

  11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
    Devin Bush: 38.5%
    Jonah Williams: 13.1%
    Cody Ford: 12.3%
    Andre Dillard: 10.7%
    Brian Burns: 7.4%
    Montez Sweat: 5.7%
    T.J. Hockenson: 4.1%
    Clelin Ferrell: 3.3%
    Daniel Jones: 2.5%
    Christian Wilkins: 2.5%
    Total votes: 122

    Aiden J: This is a tough spot for my favorite team. There are 3 options here, Daniel Jones, Cody Ford or Devin Bush. Zac Taylor, despite His meeting w/ Jones, seems to have some faith in Andy Dalton, so I wouldn’t take Jones. Cody Ford is a good Offensive Tackle which has been a need, but now that Burfict is gone the Linebacking corps is horrendous. Preston Brown is the only viable starter. While I feel Bush would be a reach, it’s the Bengals who f***ed themselves up at this point, so now they must pay the price

    Paul Brown: This seems to be a bad scenario for the Bengals, and I could see them trading down here if they got a good enough offer. That said, in the event that they don’t trade down, I think they take Devin Bush as they desperately need to improve their linebackers in the wake of Vontaze Burfict’s release.

    Steven Evans: Bengals would love Devin White,but he will be gone.They take the other LB named Devin.Then they should grab an OT in rnd 2.

  12. Green Bay Packers: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
    T.J. Hockenson: 39.2%
    Montez Sweat: 21.6%
    D.K. Metcalf: 11.4%
    Christian Wilkins: 8.0%
    Brian Burns: 5.7%
    Jonah Williams: 5.1%

    Aiden J: The Green Bay Packer have built their team on the basis that Aaron Rodgers can lead 2 chickens and a cool looking stick to the NFC divisional round. Since Rodgers injury that kept him out, the Packers have been sliding, and fast. This leaves quite the conundrum for Green Bay. While it’s clear upgrades to the offense are needed, and fast, there aren’t any solid option available. At the time of me writing this T.J Hockensen seems to be the consensus. I wouldn’t fault the Packers for taking the Hock as their current strategy of signing past their prime starters on one-year deals hasn’t exactly been successful. However, if I was in the Packers seat, Cody Ford would be my pick. I frown upon taking tight ends in the first round if other positions have yet to be filled. On top of that plenty of good tight ends will be available at the 44th, so Green Bay shouldn’t worry. Cody Ford is a dynamic Guard but has struggled in big games, as shown versus Bama. However, his protection allowed Murray to succeed, so he’s a prospect that can’t be ignored. Behind every great Quarterback, is a greater offensive-line

    Grant R: As a Packers fan, I personally feel that Sweat would be the perfect fit for the team with his absurd athleticism, I can see Gutekunst taking Hockenson at 12 overall. Yes, the draft has some good tight ends later in the later rounds (so he may double-dip), but it’s clear that Graham and Lewis aren’t going to be Packers for much longer. That’ll allow Hockenson a year or two to get used to the speed of the NFL game and learn from some gifted veterans, so in a year or two, he can take over for Graham and be Rodgers’s and Lefleur’s star tight end.

    Zach C: In an ideal world, as a Packers fan I would love to have Devin White somehow drop to 12, but that’s looking less and less likely. If the first 11 play out like this, I believe the Packers should trade back (possibly to a QB-needy team) and accumulate more picks. However, if they stay here I think they go Sweat. Yes, he has a medical red flag, but he’s a physical freak who ran extremely well at the Combine. You can never have too many edge rushers. Side note, I think it’s way too early to take a TE and believe the Packers could get a good one at 30 or in the second/third round of the draft. Additionally, none of the lineman available here would provide good value IMO and the Packers took 3 receivers in last year’s draft, so I don’t see the need to take one at this juncture.

    Brian Gutekunst: I don’t think that the Packers go WR here, seeing as they drafted multiple last year and don’t need it that much. I also don’t see them going OT, as it’s not really pressing for them. I think they either go DL (I know they signed Za’Darius Smith but they could replace Matthews) or TE. Hockenson is the best tight end available and the Packers can still address DL with their next pick so I think they take him here.

    Thomas W: I don’t think the two Smiths signings relieves the need for an edge rusher. There are three of them here, but the quality in the position will plummet by their next pick. So I’d take one here (I like Burns). Hockenson is a good choice as well, but I wonder if Fant would have siphoned off some votes.

  13. Miami Dolphins: Montez Sweat, DE/OLB, Mississippi State
    Montez Sweat: 33.9%
    Daniel Jones: 15.7%
    D.K. Metcalf: 14.8%

    Joe Y: Mike Tannebaum did the same thing to the Dolphins as he did the Jets. He left the salary cap in shambles by going “all-in” on mediocre players every year. The Jets are finally getting over what he left behind, and now the Dolphins are starting that same journey. Fun conspiracy theory: Tannebaum was a Patriots plant, sent to sabotage the AFC East. It’s a more logical explanation then Tannebaum actually believing he acted in the Jets and Dolphins best interests during his time there. Anyways, to escape the salary cap purgatory of 6-10 Miami was left in by Tannebaum (I hated Tannebaum, if you couldn’t tell), Miami had to gut the roster. Therefore, literally every position is in play here. I think Miami is a big trade down candidate, as they have been stacking up on 2020 picks this offseason, clearly hoping to acquire the ammo to ensure they get their choice of Tua or Fromm next year regardless of how low they finish. I think the Giants secretly love Daniel Jones, who they see as their next Eli Manning (very similar player and personality), and they’ll want to make sure they leapfrog the Redskins to get him. If that doesn’t happen and Miami can’t find a trade partner, then I think they try to address their terrible run stop unit with Christian Wilkins here. DT was an issue when they still had Suh, so they need to address it eventually.

    Thomas W: I think this has to be D-line: BPA among Wilkins, Burns and Ferrell. No way should they take Dre’Mont Jones here. I went with Wilkins, as much as I like Burns. Burns may have to suffer for the sins of Beasley and McKinley, both of whom are light DEs. Or maybe people like B. and McK. and thus don’t want a DE.

    Jeff D: This team could absolutely use edge rushing help, but I think the greater opportunity here is to take a stab at finishing off what could be one of the best offensive lines in football if health and development break right. They’re now paying free agent money to 3 spots on the line (Paradis, Turner, Williams), so they could use another rookie contract, especially with Williams only signed for one year. I went with Jonah Williams and with figuring out his best role once he arrives. He could slot in right away at guard and finish out a strong starting 5 with Taylor Moton on LT, or be an upgrade at either tackle position if he seems up to the task. Locking in a strong starting line is the best move for continuing the development of McCaffery and their young receivers. They can address their defensive weaknesses in later rounds and just be resigned to high scoring games this year, with an eye on trying to return to contention in 2020 and later years.
