Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: DeShone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame

The Browns have finally played their hand. You don’t pull a franchise quarterback in the middle of a competitive game with a division rival. Hue Jackson has given up on Cody Kessler and securing a QB will be the number one priority in Cleveland. Kizer has the highest ceiling in this year’s quarterback class and should fit well in Hue Jackson’s offense.

2. 49ers: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

San Francisco needs a QB, but Myles Garrett is too good to pass up on. He would make their young front line one of the best in football and give the 49ers a foundation to build around.

3. Jaguars: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Jaguars have some young talent on the edge but don’t have very much interior presence. Jonathan Allen gives whoever succeeds Gus Bradley a flexible piece across their front line and a young and talented front 7.

4. Bears: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

Jordan Howard has been promising, but Fournette will be too tempting to pass up on. After Ezekiel Elliot’s success I don’t think teams are going to be hesitant to draft a RB early, and Fournette is an even better prospect than Elliot was.

5. Jets: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been mediocre at best and unwatchable at worst. New York is under a lot of pressure to find an answer at QB and Trubisky has had an excellent year at UNC. He doesn’t have the ceiling of Kizer, but he has shown traits necessary to succeed at the next level.

6. Panthers: Cam Robinson, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Cam Newton getting calls for roughing the passer is a moot point, but it’d be nice if he had a better line that wouldn’t let him get hit in the first place. Cam Robinson has faced high quality rushers in every game and put together an impressive season at Alabama.

7. Titans: Jabrill Peppers, Safety, Michigan

The Titans are an up and coming young team but they could use some help in the secondary. Peppers gives them a playmaker from day 1 who could give Dick LeBeau a Troy Polamalu like player to work with.

8. Bengals: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

The Bengals would be more than happy to have Adams fall to them, as safety is one of their biggest needs. Adams is a playmaker who’s always around the ball and can get the Bengals defense back to being one of the best in the AFC

9. Colts: Malik McDowell, Defensive Tackle, Michigan State

The Colts need help everywhere except quarterback and special teams. Start in the trenches and work from there.

10. Chargers: Marcus Maye, Safety, Florida

The Chargers need to find a long term replacement for Eric Weddle at safety. Marcus Maye has looked good so far this season at Florida both tackling and in coverage.

11. Bills: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

Tyrod Taylor has been surprisingly effective as a starting QB but doesn’t have much to work with for receivers. Williams has made some spectacular catches and should give Taylor some steady hands to aim for.

12. Buccaneers: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

Gerald McCoy dominates inside, but he could use an outside compliment to create more pressure up front. Barnett has been consistently productive in three years of SEC football.

13. Dolphins: Adoree' Jackson, Cornerback, USC

The Dolphins secondary could use some help. Jackson has played well against quality receivers and could be dynamic at the next level.

14. Packers: Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Florida State

This pick is a match made in heaven. Dalvin Cook immediately takes pressure off Aaron Rodgers and gives Green Bay the running game they have been lacking for years.

15. Saints: Zach Cunningham, Outside Linebacker, Vanderbilt

An elite middle linebacker is an invaluable asset for a defense. Cunningham has done nothing but make plays for Vanderbilt and gives the Saints defense a leader to build around.

16. Steelers: Tim Williams, Outside Linebacker, Alabama

James Harrison’s illustrious career is coming to an end. Williams would be a like-for-like replacement and could thrive in Pittsburgh’s 3-4
