Round 1

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

Garrett has been considered by many draft experts to be the consensus number one guy for months now. The Browns are a mess. They have glaring needs all over their roster, especially quarterback. The Browns are in a similar spot to the 2014 Raiders. They should take the superior defensive player (Khalil Mack) and wait to take a QB (Derek Carr). The Browns can grab an immediate impact guy on defense here, and wait to grab a QB with their #12 pick from the Eagles. Or they could trade that pick for a guy like Jimmy Garoppolo.

2. 49ers: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

The Niners might have the worst roster in football. Even worse than the Browns. They're going to be moving on to their fourth coach in four years. With rumors suggesting that the 49ers are favorites to land Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as their new coach, he's going to want his own QB. Unless he trades for his former backup in New England. Trubisky, for now, is the top QB prospect. Come combine time this could change, but the 49ers will definitely look to grab a QB here.

3. Bears: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Much like all teams drafting at the top, the Bears have holes everywhere. They could use a quarterback here, but Allen is the easy choice to have some an immediate impact. He'll also fit into the Bears 3-4 scheme perfectly. I think the Bears are in a spot where they can wait on a QB in the second round, and roll with Matt Barkley at QB and Jordan Howard at RB next season. Not like they'll be in the playoff hunt next season, despite what Alshon Jeffery says.

4. Jaguars: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

The Jaguars offense was horrendous this season. Fournette would be a sexy pick here, but I think Adams is an even sexier pick. Adams is that good to be considered here. And I think a foundation of Jalen Ramsey and Adams is orgasmic.

5. Titans: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

Man, the Rams organization will be set back years because of their choice to trade up for QB Jared Goff. The Titans made out real well. Not only did they almost make the playoffs, but they also get a top five pick. This was a real tough choice for the Titans here. They need to acquire a legit CB1, but also need a legit WR1. Ultimately they decided to address the offense. Mike Williams proved in the National Championship game he's a legit talent. With William's boost on offense, the Titans should be playoff bound in 2017.

6. Jets: Quincy Wilson, Cornerback, Florida

The Jets defense is a mess. They're all aging, especially former star cornerback Darrelle Revis. Wilson is a tremendous cornerback out of Florida who could bring some immediate relief to that secondary. Wilson's development won't need to be immediate though seeing ass the Jets are going nowhere anytime soon.

7. Chargers: Ryan Ramcyzk, Offensive Tackle, Wisconsin

The new LA Chargers will need to find some offensive line help for Phillip Rivers. The Chargers were so disappointing this season. They lost to the Browns! Ramczyk is the top OT in the draft, and with the Chargers getting a lot of their skill players back on offense next season they *should* be much better next season.

8. Panthers: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

A lot of scouts think that Fournette and Dalvin Cook are in the same tier. Both very different types of RB's, but both very, very good. The Panthers offense was terrible this season. Fournette will bring in a whole new dimension to this offense that 30 year old Jonathan Stewart can't deliver.

9. Bengals: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

The Bengals might have been the biggest disappointment this season. They lost a few pieces last offseason but came back largely unchanged and missed the playoffs. Being able to grab Foster here is huge for the Bengals. They should be fighting for the playoffs again next season.

10. Bills: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan

The Bills have the talent on defense, they just need new head coach Sean McDermott to hone them in. The Bills need to not shoot themselves in the foot and move on from Tyrod Taylor. With a healthy Sammy Watkins and Corey Davis, the Bills should have a winning record next season.

11. Saints: Malik Hooker, Safety, Ohio State

The Saints secondary is an absolute mess. Them being able to grab Hooker here is a huge get. Hooker would be an immediate starter on the Saints come Week 1.

12. Browns: DeShone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame

Another QB for the Browns! The Browns will absolutely grab a QB here, whether or not it's DeShaun Watson or DeShone Kizer. RGIII obviously isn't the answer. Cody Kessler looked decent at times, but is he really the long term solution? Kizer won't see time immediately, and like pretty much all QB's in this draft, he's another project with a potentially great reward.

13. Cardinals: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

A QB is an obvious need here for the Cardinals. But I think them grabbing a top CB in Lattimore here makes more sense. I think the Cardinals could grab a guy like Patrick Mahomes or Brad Kaaya in the second round as a long term project.

14. Eagles: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

The Eagles would love to have Corey Davis or any cornerback here. If this is how the draft board looks come draft day, the Eagles might trade back. I think grabbing some more defensive help here in Barnett is the right choice.

15. Colts: Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Florida State

The Colts can't help themselves here, and I don't blame them. Cook is an offensive game changer. Frank Gore, who will be 34 next season, did rush for over 1,000 yards this season. But Gore isn't the game changer he once was, and Cook will make Andrew Luck and the Colts offense way more dangerous with himself in the backfield.

16. Ravens: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

The Ravens pass rush was average at best this season. Their key pass rushers are only getting older, Suggs (34) and Dumervil (33). Thomas is a physical monster who's shooting up draft boards. Being able to learn from two greats like Suggs and Dumervil will be huge for Thomas.
