Look at prospect rankings from 9 different sites/draft scouts. NFL draft order is based off of 538's NFL predictions win count. I am basing this off the prediction that Cousins ends up on the Broncos and Tyrod ends up on the Jaguars

Browns could go QB, but I think that Barkley could be the next Marshall Faulk, and you don't pass on a franchise cornerstone like that.
The 49ers could use help really everywhere, so going the best player available is the smart option and Fitzpatrick is the 2nd best player in the draft.
Eli is 36. While the o-line is an issue, the Giants shouldn't plan on picking to 5 again next year, so grabbing Eli's heir is their top priority. While Rosen might be the most NFL ready QB, Darnold is more mature and has better potential.
WR is the biggest need for the Bears and Trubisky, but going receiver here would be a big reach. They also need help in their secondary and James can be an immediate difference maker.
The Colts could also go o-line here, but their defense doesn't have any big name players (although I believe Hooker will be a very good player), so they need talent on that side of the ball. Chubb could be the pass rusher the team hasn't had since Freeney.
The Broncos o-line also is a weak point. The Broncos have a good defense with some pieces on offense, so they grab Nelson to improve their line.
Miami could go a lot of ways here. but like most bad teams, their o-line is a poor. Tunsil was fine as a guard, but once they moved him to tackle, he went downhill. Grabbing Williams allows Tunsil to move back to guard, so this would improve two positions.
McCown has looked good, but he's 39. Petty and Hackenburg aren't the answer. The Jets need a QB. Rosen is the clear choice here.
The Bucs are last in the league in sacks. Key isn't the most productive pass rusher, but he's got all the physical tools and has the potential to be the big time pass rusher this team needs.
Khalil Mack is one of the best players in the NFL, but the Raiders struggles opposite him. Irvin has been ok, but adding Landry opposite Mack could give the Raiders a very scary pass rush duo for years.
I know the Browns have missed on players like Wentz and Watson in the past, but I personally believe that Kizer can be the answer if given the time and weapons. Having already added Barkley, giving Kizer a number 1 receiver would be big. Sutton has the size and athleticism to be that guy.
The Cardinals need a QB and Palmer will be 38 next year. If he doesn't retire, that would allow Allen to have a year to learn and improve. Allen has the necessary physical tools to be a great NFL QB, but he has to bring it all together for it to happen.
The Bengals got killed in free agency losing Whitworth and Zeitler and they're seeing the effects, so expect them to go o-line in round 1. Brown can play left or right tackle.
Like Eli, Rivers is getting old. While still a good QB, he doesn't have much left in the tank and the Chargers need to act sooner rather than later. Rudolph is an enigma to me as some believe he's the best QB in the draft and others believe he's not even a top 5 QB. I believe that he would be a great heir to Rivers given his style of play.
Mayfield could fill Cousins' shoes right away. He's got a similar play style and personality.
So Peterman isn't the answer. The Bills need a QB in round 1. With Jackson being the last top tier QB, the Bills need to snatch him. Some feel his best shot at the NFL is as a WR, but I personally believe that he could be the next Vick, but NFL defenses will be more prepared this time around.
