Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Cleveland finally has the opportunity to draft a franchise quarterback. Fortunately, they only invested a second round pick in Kizer (see later in this first round for his new team). Darnold has all of the tools to be the man that stops that mile-long jersey train.

2. 49ers: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

Matt Breida has some promise, but being honest - Barkley is a franchise changing back. This pick will certainly change if Cousins doesn't make the move in the offseason. I'm sure the Chargers would be offering the farm to SF to jump ahead of the Giants to grab Rosen, but then New York would likely take Barkley, so they won't take L.A's offer.

3. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The rebuild begins for the Giants. Rosen takes over for Manning. It could be possible for Manning to start 2018/19, and if he struggles, he could see the field.

4. Chargers: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Chargers would certainly take a quarterback if Rosen were available. With that being said it would make no sense for them to reach on a quarterback here, and not take a franchise tackle in Williams.

5. Bengals: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

Poor Bengals. Williams is the real-deal and is a Joe Thomas clone. They desperately need him. That being said, Trey Adams is a very promising left tackle. He has a massive ceiling and a low floor.

6. Colts: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Colts go BPA here. I could easily see Harold Landry with this pick, but having the potential of James and Hooker as a safety tandem is salivating.

7. Bears: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Hopefully this seventh overall wide receiver pans out for Chicago. At least this time, Ridley has three very solid seasons under his belt. Bears grab some help for Trubisky.

8. Dolphins: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Minkah is probably a top three talent in this draft class, but due to quarterbacks and offensive line needs, he drops to eight. Miami would be thrilled to have him.

9. Cardinals: Luke Falk, Quarterback, Washington State

Now that the elite talent is off the board (less Landry, Guice, and Chubb) - Cardinals can take a small reach in Falk to be their quarterback of the future.

10. Ravens: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU

Baltimore grabs an elite running back in Guice. With a threat like the LSU product, the entire Baltimore offense will open up and Flacco's life will be easier.

11. Seahawks: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Perfect fit for both McGlinchey and Seattle. I'm unsure if he's their answer at left tackle, but I see him as an elite guard/right tackle. Regardless, Seattle is much better with McGlinchey in the lineup.

12. Browns: James Washington, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

I really wanted to put Landry or Chubb here, but Washington would be the better pick. Washington provides a number one receiver for Cleveland and Darnold.

13. Cowboys: Harold Landry, Outside Linebacker, Boston College

Somehow Landry falls in this scenario. Landry would complete the Cowboys' defensive line rebuild. Would also add help if Lawrence walks in free agency.

14. Jaguars: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

Jaguars grab a receiver to replace Allen Robinson. Even if Allen signs a one-year 'prove-it' deal, Sutton will add some serious talent to the Jaguars corps.

15. Jets: Malik Jefferson, Inside Linebacker, Texas

There are no quarterbacks worth the pick here, so Jefferson is the pick. The Jets will find a

16. Saints: Prospect not selected

Wilkins and Rankins in the middle for New Orleans would be an outstanding pairing.
