Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

The Browns need a QB. As much as it hurts to select another one, this is a must. You can't win without one and they have pulled the trigger on so many. Rosen is now the top QB prospect because lets face it Sam Darnold is playing ugly.

2. 49ers: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

I did not want to put Darnold this high but what else. Hyde is solid no need to replace him, Cousins looks like he will stay in Washington for the time as of now, Alex Smith will be on the trade block but I don't think this team will pursue him.

3. Giants: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

This is an easy pick right here. Barkley is a great runner and one of the best in recent memory. The Giants have no run game and if they want to continue to support Eli and company they need to help him out.

4. Colts: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Like Hilton said, The O-line needs to be better. McGlinchey is the best healthy player at this position so it just looks too good to be true. Luck is struggling with health and Brisset is getting no help.

5. Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Bucs nasty secondary needs help. They are nasty in a bad way. Fitzpatrick is playing well and steady and if that continues he will make his way up to this slot. The Bucs could use anybody to help if they want to play better.

6. Bengals: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Williams is an amazing player if he is healthy, The Bengals need lineman. This team has a promising future if they play their cards right. Williams if he does not loose a step will be a steal right here.

7. Jets: James Washington, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

Washington continues to be red hot. I think that the Jets could make a move towards Alex Smith. If they do they need people to throw too. James is the best WR in the draft and adding him would be a great move for any team.

8. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

The Cards need a new QB. Palmer got injured which might mean that his career could be done in Arizona. If not they should bring up Jackson. He is a raw prospect but with a year to sit and learn he could be great.

9. Bears: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

The Bears could be a great team if they had a worthy WR core. Meridith is an amazing player, if he comes back healthy and the Bears snag a great WR in FA then this team could compete next year.

10. Raiders: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Raiders need someone to play safety. They could pick James here, which would be a risky move. James lately has played awful but people still rave for some reason. He is built to play in NFL though, so this might not be that bad.

11. Ravens: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

This is a little early for Ridley to be picked but its a need. The Ravens give no help to Flacco with a weak pass attack. Ridley is a solid player and he could be used well in Baltimore.

12. Chargers: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Chargers are coming back to compete for the playoffs. But if they fail they might want to beef up the O-line. Nelson is solid and playing alongside Freeny could look like the line from Notre Dame soon.

13. Falcons: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Chubb is like Beasly but the Falcons could really use anybody. The defense has let them down all year, and this is no different. Chubb is an elite prospect and adding him to this defense is a step in the right direction.

14. Broncos: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU

Something that has let down this team in back to back weeks in the run game. Guice is a solid athlete and he can play well in the NFL. Guice would fit the Bronco's scheme very well and if they don't pick up a RB then God bless this team next year.

15. Lions: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

Key has played iffy so far, this will cause him to drop. The Lions could use a player like him on defense. He could play well with Davis and that would be a combo to look at for awhile.

16. Cowboys: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Ward is playing with fire down his spine. The Cowboys need help in the secondary and adding a player like Ward is a solid move. Ward can shutdown WRs and cause turnovers.
