Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Well lets be honest, he is not the best Quarterback in this draft, but by draft time he will have made the biggest splash, and the Browns will fall for it. He's big, he's quick, has a big arm, and best of all! He wants to play in Cleveland! SOLD.

2. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Yes, I wanted to put Saquon here, but the Giants front office knows who the best QB is and they wont pass up on him. Eli can have his last year, if NY feels Rosen is not ready. Rosen may have his personality issues, but putting him into the heart of the media, he might just thrive.

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

Bradley Chubb sure as heck sounds smart. But you know what would be smarter? The best player in the draft matched up with Andrew Luck. Barkley is generational and is the most sure thing coming into the draft. Finally give Luck a running game and watch the Colts rise to the top.

4. Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Browns got their QB, now they get their secondary in check. Minkah the best DB in the draft is the only option for the Browns here. Gonna need someone to lockdown players like Antonio Brown and A.J. Green if you want a chance at winning the division.

5. Broncos: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

The Broncos are in a very good situation, and likely go after a QB in free agency. Von Miller rushing on one side Bradley Chubb on the other. Could even kick it inside if they need him too. The Broncos luck out and make their ferocious defense a lot better.

6. Jets: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

The Jets found a great quarterback in 38 year old Josh McCown, well for the Jets at least. The Jets need a QB to turn this ship around, taking Darnold is the safest choice at this point. Baker may fit well in that division, but it just doesn't seem like the safest move for this battered franchise.

7. Buccaneers: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Its as simple as this. Protect your best asset, Jameis needs more time to get the ball to his playmakers. Williams is the best tackle in the draft. Too good to pass up.

8. Bears: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Expecting the Bears the cut a lot of highly paid vets, Josh Sitton would be one of them. Quenton Nelson a perennial superstar in waiting. Protecting No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky is just as important as getting him receivers, which will be done in the middle rounds. Don't forget the Bears hired Nelsons OL coach from ND as well.

9. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Inside Linebacker, Georgia

Gruden is in town, and he needs to make sure that defense is in check so he can bring back 2016 Derek Carr to the playoffs. A very disappointing season bandaged with a franchise LB in the middle.

10. 49ers: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

The 49ers are full of potential with Jimmy G at the helm, there are a lot of positions the team can fill here but the 49er receivers are weak, give Garoppolo a playmaker and you could be looking at one of the fastest rebuilds we've ever seen by a rookie GM.

11. Dolphins: Marcus Davenport, 3-4 Outside Linebacker, Texas-San Antonio

The Dolphins took a blow in 2017 when Ryan Tannehill went down for the year. That being said both sides of the ball still need help. Gase gives Tannehill one more year to figure out this offense. Davenport alongside Suh could be very dangerous to an aging player like Brady. It could be the formula to dethrone this dynasty.

12. Bengals: Orlando Brown, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

Andy Dalton is not a franchise QB. Marvin Lewis somehow retained his job yet again. The Bengals do not have a clue of what to do. Andy Dalton shines best when he has time in the pocket. Losing 2 offensive lineman to free-agency hurt them last year. Orlando Brown will bandage this team to possibly make the playoffs again.

13. Redskins: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Giants got their guy, the Redskins find theirs in no other than the electrifying Heisman winner Mayfield. He will bring his attitude to the NFC East and could possibly give the extra edge to this team that Cousins couldn't.

14. Packers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Packers are another team in a great position. A good team with a HOF QB ready to draft best available. Derwin James is just that, The best safety in college football 2 years in a row. James and HaHa back there could put fear into any QB in the league.

15. Cardinals: Mason Rudolph, Quarterback, Oklahoma State

Palmer is out, Arians is out. An old team in need of a young face. Leader of one of the best Offenses in college football this past year. Mason Rudolph is a smart QB who can really develop well with players like David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald surrounding him.

16. Ravens: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

Is Joe Flacco elite? No. Is he a game manager? Sometimes. Does he have weapons he can trust? No he does not. Courtland Sutton is a big fast go up and get the ball type receiver that could bring back Flacco type games when he had Boldin and Steve Smith.
