Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

It doesn't make sense to me that a team would take a player they may never use at no. 1 overall. Plus, the browns aren't guaranteed Barkley at 4th so they need to take him here, if they absolutely want a quarterback one will still be available at 4, and it hasn't even been made clear what quarterback they prefer.

2. Cardinals: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

If Saquon Barkley is off the board, the giants aren't interested, they don't need to replace Eli manning bad enough to take a quarterback second overall. The Cardinals need a quarterback badly, Bradford gets hurt a lot, and so that quarterback needs to be pro-ready. Darnold is the consensus best qb in the draft.

3. Jets: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The jets need a quarterback badly, and Allen has perhaps the highest ceiling of any of the quarterbacks. They moved up for a reason, and he is it.

4. Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Surprise. As you can tell I'm not into the quarterback hype, and i'm a big fan of tyrod taylor, the browns got barkley, the offensive gamechanger, but they need defensive gamechangers as well. Fitzpatrick can have an instant impact, where a quarterback can't, and he fulfills a real need, as the browns secondary is subpar.

5. Broncos: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Once again, i don't bite on the QB hype. The broncos need to protect 20 million dollar case keenum. Nelson is the top offensive lineman in the draft, and will bolster the offensive line in denver.

6. Colts: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

If the Giants trade down, then none of the other top 5 teams will pick chubb. The colts need to improve a woeful defense, and Chubb will help the pass rush in a division where the colts face 3 young promising quarterbacks.

7. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

First of all, it's always a good idea to bet on the hometown selection. Tampa bay selecting a florida state player just has a nice ring to it. Chris conte and Keith tandy, are not viable long-term solutions at safety, and James stock has really risen as of late.

8. Bears: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

The Bears have a very young, green, quarterback in Mitch Trubisky, and better blocking would do a lot for his confidence, McGlinchey is arguably the safest pick in the draft for offensive lineman.

9. 49ers: Marcus Davenport, Defensive End, Texas-San Antonio

The 49ers need a little help with the pass rush, Davenport has 15 sacks in two years of college football at UTSA, and will wreak havoc in the NFC West.

10. Raiders: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

The raiders need to improve their secondary, and the best corner in the draft is on the board, they'll be pleased to see him fall this far.

11. Dolphins: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Dolphins need to move on from Ryan Tannehill, and Baker Mayfield combined with Kenyan Drake could create a very explosive offense.

12. Bills: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

In my opinion, this is actually a good situation for Rosen, he'll have to buckle down and show maturity in order to win the job over AJ Mcarron. but if he does he will be nurtured by an excellent rushing attack, and a good defense.

13. Redskins: Prospect not selected

Washington get a steal here, and with a shaky offense, they'll need good run defense, in order to control the clock.

14. Packers: Jaire Alexander, Cornerback, Louisville

A little bit of a reach, but it fills a need. Things look sparse opposite tramon williams, and alexander has great physical tools 5'11'' ,192 lbs., 4.38 40 time, 14 reps at combine, as well as a reputation for being hard-nosed.

15. Giants: Isaiah Wynn, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

This is the perfect scenario for the giants, they get more picks later in the draft to add depth, and they don't have to reach for an offensive lineman. They have major holes in the interior line, and wynn is very versatile as well as immensely talented.

16. Ravens: D.J. Moore, Wide Receiver, Maryland

Another hometown pick, and another reach, but Moore's stock has been rising, and he is a tenacious, tough receiver which is what a team with an aging michael Crabtree, and an injury prone breshad perriman need. Despite being labeled as "thick built, Moore ran a 4.42 compared to courtland sutton's 4.54, and is as tall as Calvin Ridley with a better 40 time and equal reps on bench press.
