Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

Normally I would slot a QB in here for the number 1 pick regardless of other prospects. However, this QB class looks incredibly weak and later rounds should garner similar value at QB for the Browns. They take the top prospect on most everybody's board and start to accumulate some real talent on defense.

2. 49ers: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Niners too need a QB, it's just hard to put any of the "top"QBs this high, maybe a trade back a few slots or reaching will be the play, but taking a guy to go along with Armstead and Buckner can start to rebuild what was once a great SF defense.

3. Jaguars: Malik McDowell, Defensive Tackle, Michigan State

Malik McDowell could fit in nicely with a budding defense that has some real potential. With guys like Ngakoue, Ramsey, Jack, Telvin Smith and Malik Jackson, adding another piece could offset what has been a disappointing offensive team.

4. Bears: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

Trubisky and Kizer are immensely overrated at this point, but the top few teams absolutely need QBs and none of the other players are worth taking over a future QB at this point. Trubisky may return to UNC, but has shown good accuracy and athleticism this year.

5. Jets: Quincy Wilson, Cornerback, Florida

The Jets are another team who can opt to reach for a young QB here, but probably shouldn't. Quincy Wilson might be the most talented corner in this class for what has been an awful secondary this year. The Jets need to have an improved defense to have any shot in most games.

6. Titans: Sidney Jones, Cornerback, Washington

Sidney Jones could be a big piece for the young Titans to push for NFC south supremacy in the next couple of years. The defense there has proven to be not quite as stout as most thought, especially in the secondary.

7. Panthers: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Panthers have an obvious weakness in their team and have a good shot to address it with a top 10 selection this year. Lattimore has big game experience and could play immediately.

8. Bengals: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

The Bengals have a decent team left but Andy Dalton hasn't looked as confident since losing complementary guys like Sanu and Jones. Mike Williams would be a perfect number 2 immediately across from A.J. Green, with an opportunity to develop into a number 1 receiver.

9. Browns: DeShone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame

At number 9, the Browns can feel a bit better about reaching for Kizer. If he is still available, it wouldn't look like a terrible choice. Kizer has a legit NFL frame and really looks the part, but hasn't looked as impressive as some seem to think.

10. Saints: Jalen Tabor, Cornerback, Florida

The Saints have Drew Brees at the end of the rope, although he is as good as ever, but finding a defense to match the offense is the only way the Saints can contend. Tabor has been somewhat overshadowed by Quincy Wilson this year, but should be quality at number 10.

11. Chargers: Cam Robinson, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

The Chargers have a super talented team that can do big things if healthy, the line is consistently banged up and could use a refresh on the outside, so Cam Robinson is the first tackle off the board.

12. Cardinals: Prospect not selected

The Cardinals have the talent to make another run but could do with an upgrade on the interior of the line, a spot it seems like they have been trying to plug for a while now. Carson Palmer needs all the protection he can get.

13. Titans: Jabrill Peppers, Safety, Michigan

The Titans have two top picks this year, and could use another body in the secondary to make plays, something Jabrill Peppers can do in bunches. Peppers is a versatile player with high energy.

14. Colts: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

The Colts would probably be ecstatic if Leonard Fournette fell to them this far down, as he is a monster of an athlete to go with Andrew Luck. Fournette also could be categorized as slightly overrated, but should be a first rounder in any case. He will likely go before this, but most of the high picking teams have solid runners.

15. Bills: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

The Bills have a need at safety due to injuries and poor play. LSU has a track record of producing great DBs and Adams could be the next stud out of that program.

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

The Packers have not been the usual offensive powerhouse they are for many reasons, mostly Mike Mccarthy, but I think Eddie Lacy is done in Green Bay as the starter. Dalvin Cook would be an easy contender for rookie of the year and could jumpstart this offense.
