This is the direction the Cardinals appear to be headed. Murray is a dynamic playmaker who can make all the throws, extend plays with his legs, and hopefully turn around a franchise. Murray may only be 5'10, but his talent is undeniable. The Cardinals have to take their chances on his talent here and see if they can get a first round pick in exchange for last year's first rounder, Josh Rosen.
Bosa is as safe of a pick as there is in this draft. He has a diverse set of pass rush moves, holds his own in the run game, and there are a lot of similarities in his game to his superstar brother, Joey.
Oliver is a potential star, but this pick would be a bit controversial with Quinnen Williams on the board. Nonetheless, reports have surfaced that Oliver is the DL that new DC Gregg Williams prefers. I fully expect the Jets to trade back, but since I'm not projecting trades, Oliver is the pick here.
Williams is the consensus top talent in the draft. Getting him here is great value for the Raiders, who have done a good enough job of plugging the holes on their roster that they can grab the best player available here.
White to Tampa is the draft's worst kept secret. With Kwon Alexander's departure in free agency, White is a natural fit. He is an excellent athlete, has good instincts and is a prototypical sideline-to-sideline LB for today's NFL.
If Allen is available here, the Giants would run to the podium to make this selection. He offers the highest upside of any pass rusher in this draft, and the Giants have an enormous need for pass rushing help.
With Nick Foles signed, the Jaguars would be wise to add weapons for Foles to throw to. The return of Marqise Lee will help, and there's not necessarily a WR that wouldn't be a reach here. Hockenson is a well-rounded threat who can provide a security blanket in the middle of the field, just as Zach Ertz did for Foles in Philly.
Williams has great length and is an outstanding athlete. Those traits translate well in the NFL, especially for a team like Detroit who covets guys who can play tight man coverage. This is one of the more natural fits on paper in the first round.
Investing in the offense is critical to Josh Allen's success. Williams has re-risen up draft boards late in the process. His versatility to play on the inside or outside make him an extra valuable commodity here.
Jones has his supporters. His protoypical size and the excellent coaching he received from David Cutcliffe are sure to help his cause with John Elway. Elway's affinity for taller QB's, in addition to the Cutcliffe-Peyton Manning connection, make this an interesting potential landing spot for Jones.
The Bengals need help at the second level, that's no secret. Bush is a bit undersized but offers the coveted ranginess and athleticism that today's NFL requires. Dwayne Haskins is hard to pass on here, but I think the Bengals will give Andy Dalton a vote of confidence and add to their defense if given the choice.
This would probably qualify as one of the biggest surprises of the first round. But after a tumultuous offseason, it's clear the Packers need to add some help for Aaron Rodgers. Brown's gamebreaking speed makes him an intriguing option to pair with Davante Adams.
Miami has a hole at RT after Ja'Wuan James' departure in free agency. With the Dolphins destined to tank, adding help along the OL makes sense to ensure that next year's likely QB draft pick has ample protection up front.
Simmons is injured, but is a top 10 talent in the draft. This is more of a gut feeling than anything - the Falcons have a talented roster and can afford to let Simmons recover, before eventually pairing him with Grady Jarrett.
I think Haskins will be off the board by this point due to a team trading up and grabbing him. But without a projected trade, the Redskins would have both Haskins and Drew Lock available here. Haskins is the selection after showing higher end ability in his lone season as a starter at OSU.
Burns is the most athletic pass rusher in the draft. His upside is simply too tempting to pass on for a team that needs pass rushing help.
