Enough trades to make things interesting and be relatively realistic. Let me know what you think of my picks. Feel free to comment or rate, thanks! Just one round this time, for the mock draft contest.

Round 1

1. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The Browns go with the top QB on their board, which appears to be Josh Allen.


2. Bills: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Trade! Bills trade away their picks at R1#12, R1#22, R2#21, R2#24 and R3#1 in exchange for this pick and the Giants' R4#8. The Bills would be trading up for whoever the Browns don't take between Darnold and Allen. They'd be ecstatic to land Darnold here.


3. Jets: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

Since the Jets have moved up, they've been rumored to like Mayfield. If Darnold or Allen fall to #3, they could have a decision to make.


4. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

The Browns do the easy thing and take Barkley here. They'd be fortunate to snag him at #4.


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

Giants trade up here from #12 with the Broncos, throwing in their R2#2 pick and swapping third round picks (R3#1 for R3#7). The Giants could have their eye on Chubb or Barkley, or even Nelson. If the top 4 is QB heavy and one or two of those non-QB's are available, they could trade up for an elite prospect here in Chubb (after trading away JPP). Also, they have plenty of other picks left to address their OL.


6. Colts: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Colts miss out on Barkley and Chubb, but they still land an elite OL prospect here and don't complain too much.


7. Cardinals: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Trade! Cardinals trade their picks R1#15, R2#15 and R3#33 for this pick and Tampa's R4#2 pick. If Rosen (or another top 4 QB) slips out of the top 5, there's likely going to be a fair amount of teams looking to trade up. The Buccaneers could use more picks, so this trade benefits them; also, with Chubb, Barkley and Nelson off the board, there are no more elite-level prospects. The Cardinals move up for Rosen, their future franchise QB, here.


8. Bears: Prospect not selected

The Bears get a nice LB prospect here who they may play outside or in the middle, or they could even move around.


9. 49ers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

The 49ers take the top CB prospect here.


10. Raiders: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Raiders sit at #10 and Fitzpatrick makes it to them. This may not happen, but you've got to think they'd be very happy if it did.


11. Dolphins: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

The Dolphins like Smith, and he'd fill a big need for them.


12. Broncos: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

After trading back from #5, the Broncos land the top WR prospect here.


13. Redskins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

The Redskins could use another talented DT to add to their defensive front/rotation.


14. Packers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Packers sit back at #14 and land James, who'd likely start where Morgan Burnett played at safety.


15. Buccaneers: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

After trading back, the Buccaneers just miss out on James but still land the top OT prospect in McGlinchey.


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

The Ravens would love to take a WR here. With Ridley gone, it's likely Sutton or Moore. The hometown edge gives Moore the selection.
