Not buying into the Murray to the Cardinals buzz just yet. The Cardinals must get the absolute best player in the draft with the 1st overall pick. Bosa is just that, adding significant talent to this roster.
Allen offers elite size and rush talent off the edge and the 49ers badly needs help pressuring the edge. He is loaded with moves to get to the quarterback and has the athleticism to help in second-level coverage.
PREDICTED TRADE WITH JETS. The Jaguars give up a 2020 1st, a 2019 3rd round pick and the 2019 6th overall pick to move up and grab the 1st QB in this year's draft. In Haskins they get a young, strong-armed quarterback and officially end the Blake Bortles era.
The Raiders have to address their pass rush -- they recorded a league-low 13 sacks in 2018 after trading Mack. Williams is a DT who lives to make plays in the backfield and will make an immediate impact on this Raiders defense.
The Buccaneers must protect Winston and I don't think they'll be able to pass on one of the top tackle prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft. The buzz around Taylor have scouts saying he has a higher ceiling than Williams at this time.
The Giants take a flyer on the 2020 QB class and select Gary who is a talented and explosive pass rusher. Although Gary is a better athlete than playmaker at this point, he will make an immediate impact on this Giants defense which needs an infusion of young talent.
PREDICTED TRADE WITH JAGUARS. After picking up some additional draft assets, the Jets address their O-line to aid in Darnold's development. Williams is arguably one of the best offensive line prospects in this draft and should be an immediate starter.
There are needs at every level for this defense, but finding a stud corner to line up opposite Slay should be high on the list. Williams is a long, lean CB who has rare speed, quickness and agility for his size. He’s not the most physical player, but he’s fundamentally sound in coverage, and he uses his length well at the line to break up routes.
The Bills need to address their supporting cast around Allen to help him develop. Ford is a versatile mauler, and should be an immediate starter on this offensive line for years to come.
PREDICTED TRADE WITH BRONCOS. The Redskins have nothing at quarterback in the wake of Smith's injury. They trade into the top 10 to get the jump on the Bengals and Dolphins who are also rumored to be in the QB market. Jones has positive arm strength, athleticism and developmental upside. Jay Gruden did strong work with Smith and Cousins, hopefully he can do the same with Jones.
The Bengals offensive line needs an upgrade as well, but the linebacker play was among the worst in the league this season. White is a three-down difference-maker at the second level and a great value here.
The Packers desperately need a special edge pass-rusher and Ferrell is the best Clemson defensive line prospect in the 2019 draft. His size gives him a high floor as an outside run-stopper in addition to his explosiveness as a pass-rusher.
The Dolphins are a perfect team to take a risk on Murray who appears ready to move on from Tannehill. If Murray is able to get the team to rally around his natural skillset, the Dolphins will be a fun team to watch next season.
Being an undersized DT who played against inferior competition will likely keep Oliver out of the top 10. Regardless, Oliver is a quick, disruptive interior lineman who would give the Falcons a force to be reckoned with in the middle.
PREDICTED TRADE WITH REDSKINS. With the acquisition of Joe Flacco, and additional draft capital in this scenario, the Broncos address their secondary. Baker can give the Broncos a smart, physical press coverage presence they lack in the secondary.
The Panthers had some of the worst safety play in the NFL in 2018. Thompson is the rangy playmaker they need to clean up against the pass, and he’s solid in run support too.
