Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Cardinals: Kyler Murray, Quarterback, Oklahoma

It's been Murray all along.

2. 49ers: Nick Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State

The 49ers go with the game-wrecking edge rusher over Quinnen Williams

3. Jets: Ed Oliver, Defensive Tackle, Houston

I've seen a few mocks from respected draft gurus that are slotting Oliver here, and apparently new DC Gregg Williams really wants Oliver. Williams might be the best player in this class, but it's worth noting that he only really starred for one college season. Oliver has been a monster since he was a freshman.

4. Raiders: Quinnen Williams, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Raiders would have to be thrilled here. Walter made the smart connection that Oliver's agent is the same agent that represented Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper, so if Williams went 3rd, perhaps the Raiders would choose Josh Allen over Oliver.

5. Buccaneers: Devin White, Inside Linebacker, LSU

The Bucs apparently love White, and could pair him with Lavonte David to form quite the linebacking duo.

6. Giants: Josh Allen, 3-4 Outside Linebacker, Kentucky

Allen is the guy, if the board is like this.

7. Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor, Offensive Tackle, Florida

Taylor might be in a battle with Jonah Williams to be the first OL chosen. Watch out for TJ Hockenson here, too.

8. Redskins: Dwayne Haskins, Quarterback, Ohio State

TRADE! If someone like Oliver, Allen, or White were available, I think the Lions could stay in this spot. But if not, I believe they'd like to move down. The Redskins and Giants, division rivals, both want to emerge with a QB. Washington's pick, at 15, is slightly higher than NY's next pick at 17. The Giants' 2nd rounder is higher than Washington's pick, though. Would Washington or NY cough up its 2020 1st rounder? Dan Synder is usually the more desperate owner, so I'm going to guess that his team gives up #15 and next year's 1st rounder. They take Haskins, the QB they like the most.

9. Bills: Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Buffalo beefs up its O-line.

10. Broncos: Devin Bush, Linebacker, Michigan

The Broncos, connected with Drew Lock, don't go QB here but take a LB prospect that would fit well in Vic Fangio's scheme.

11. Falcons: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

TRADE! The Falcons trade up with Cincy to take a premium interior D-lineman in Wilkins.

12. Packers: T.J. Hockenson, Tight End, Iowa

Jimmy Graham's tank is on E.

13. Giants: Daniel Jones, Quarterback, Duke

The Giants trade up with Miami to take the #1 QB on their board.

14. Bengals: Montez Sweat, Defensive End, Mississippi State

Sweat's heart condition is going to make calling where he lands tough. His measureables should appeal to Cincy.

15. Lions: Brian Burns, Defensive End, Florida State

The Lions add an edge rusher to their front seven.

16. Panthers: Andre Dillard, Offensive Tackle, Washington State

More protection is needed for Cam Newton.
