Seems like the Cardinals are likely to trade Rosen and take Murray (or possibly another QB) here. My assumption here is that Rosen is had by a team for a round 3 or 4 pick, who considers him as a potential future (but maybe not immediate) answer.
The 49ers end up getting the top prospect here at two in Bosa. They potentially could trade back, but they probably won't pass up the chance to get Bosa here if he's available.
Trade! The Raiders exchange their second round pick for the Jets' third round pick and move up here to select Williams, who could very well be taken in the first two picks. Gruden likes this DT more than he wants to replace Carr at QB. Williams is the number one or two prospect in this draft, so this is a really nice pick.
Gruden likes this DT more than he wants to replace Carr at QB. Williams is maybe the number two prospect in this draft, so this is a really nice pick. Williams is probably more likely than not to go #2 or #3, so the Raiders (or another team) may need to move up to #3 if they really want him, as many have him pegged as the top prospect in this draft. (after trading down one spot with the Jets) The Jets are hoping for more trade interest for another top QB, but none comes this high. They go with Allen here as the top pass rusher available to fill a need.
Trade! If Haskins falls to here, there will very likely be a lot of offers the Bucs will get. Unless something really negative happens, this could be his floor. Here, the Bucs take the Skins' picks at 1-15, 2-14 and 3-12 to trade back ten spots (while other teams like the Dolphins and Jags and Giants miss out on him).
The Giants need to be serious about drafting their future at QB. They could consider trading back, but with the Jaguars and Broncos drafting soon after, they probably wouldn't risk it if they really like one of the prospects. With Murray and Haskins (who the Giants reportedly don't think is a good fit) off the board, they go with Drew Lock out of Missouri as their future at the position.
The Jaguars take a qualilty tight end here. It may be a little high, but Hockenson is a skilled pass-catcher as well as a great run blocker.
The Lions go for an edge rusher here in Ferrell to replace Ansah, who is likely to depart as a free agent. An edge rusher is what the Lions need the most, and they find good value here.
The Bills go here for an explosive offensive weapon to help out Allen. They have addressed WR in free agency, but taking Metcalf here gives their offense a chance to be pretty good and gives them a great long-term solution.
The Broncos are likely here to take a piece for their defense if they get good value. White is great value here and fills a need at ILB.
The Bengals go with a top OL prospect here in Jonah Williams. The Bengals' OL is not what it used to be, so whether Williams ends up at T or G he will be a significant addition for protecting Dalton.
The Packers really need to give their defense some weapons. Here they go with Burns, who gives them a quality edge rusher (and is the last of the first tier or edge rushers besides Polite, who has off the field issues).
If the Dolphins don't go for a 1st round QB this draft, they should focus on rebuilding their team so that next year they can get a good 1st rounder and have the weapons and protection in place when that time comes. Part of helping a young QB is having a solid defense. Taking a stud DT here in Oliver to shore up the DL would ultimately be a smart move, especially since there is great value.
Trade! The world champion Patriots decide to move up in the first round for once for DT Rashan Gary, who would greatly help their line. He's also great value here. The Patriots send their extra picks at 2-24 and 3-9 (or a future 2nd rounder) to trade up from 32 to here at 14. The Falcons go forward with the trade so that they can get more pieces to fill needs and also to give a little flexibility in case they want to move around a little later in the first round or in round 2.
(after trading down from 5) The Buccaneers here take Sweat, who looks to have great potential as an edge rusher. He could fall some due in part to combine testing revealing a minor heart condition. But if the Bucs don't think it will affect his playing career, they could definitely take him here.
The Panthers here go for an OT prospect who some project as a potential LT. Wherever he plays, Taylor will help shore up the line and protect Newton.
