With trades! I try to draft to address big team needs but if there's a great talent available that would be an upgrade, I will choose that over a need.

The Redskins win the Tank Bowl! Trent Williams is supremely P.O.'d by the front office, so they will need some OL to protect whatever QB of the week is starting. Andrew Thomas is a GREAT talent and has succeeded in protecting the UGA backfield and will do so in DC until he eventually has a complication from medical malpractice at the hands of the Redskins.
Burreaux has been leading a very talented LSU offense and if he keeps this up he will ultimately be the first QB off the board here. Zac Taylor will have a new leader to try to build around and lead the Bengals out of the AFC purgatory.
Woah! No Tua? No J Herbo? Nope. Young is too good of a talent to pass up, and I think the Dolphins SHOULD use all their first round picks to address other pieces on the team. A quality QB will be there in the second round.
I would have the Bucs taking Tua here but the season-ending injury is a big red flag to me and I wouldn't risk taking him at #4. The Bucs defense is horrendous. The offense has a lot of talent but you can't win by hoping the offense wins a shootout. Okudah is a LOCKDOWN corner and will be a big upgrade.
Daniel Jones has promise. But what he doesn't have is targets to throw to. Jeudy will be a very, very great upgrade to the WR core and will make Jones' AND Saquon's lives much easier.
The Jags WR core is not reliable. DJ Chark is the only bright spot on a squad that doesn't give Foles/Minshew much to work with. CeeDee is a menace to opposing secondaries and will bring the Jags offense upward.
Darnold has no OL and no WRs. The Jets offense sputters trying to get running despite having one of the top RBs in the league. Tristan Wirfs won't fix the entire offense but he will be a great piece to solve Darnold's ghost problem.
Tua falls all the way to #8 and into the lap of a Titans team that, minutes before the draft, likely would be panicking trying to work up for a QB. Mariota is done. Tannehill is good, but not the answer. Tennessee will get a QB with promise, but like Mariota, might end up being a glass cannon.
The Chargers, I believe, will be looking to move on from Phillip Rivers, but not in the first round. There is too much defensive talent to choose from, namely Simmons, who is extremely versatile and will bump the already good Chargers defense up yet another notch.
Trade! The Falcons were at #10 but Denver was so desperate for a talented safety and wanted to get to Delpit before the Browns could. Delpit will be a young star to re-frame the Denver defense around.
The clock is ticking for Detroit to put together a contending team before Stafford can't perform anymore. He has weapons, the defense is close but not close enough, and the OL has got to be fixed. Biadasz is without a doubt a top OL-man in this draft, and will give Stafford and Johnson more time to work.
Look, there are a lot of problems within the Browns organization, top to bottom. But the main 2 problems on the field, to me, are the OL and the secondary. Baker needs more time to do what he does. Grant Delpit was their target but the Broncos swiped him, so an upgrade on OL can be brought in to protect Baker.
Gruden's Grinders now reside in the desert and need a new playmaker on offense. Ruggs the 2nd part of Saban's trio of WRs and will produce immediately. Derek Carr has gotten a lot better with his new OL and Jacobs in the backfield behind him. An upgrade at receiver will make the Raiders a serious team next year.
The Falcons could afford to swap picks with the Denvers and fall back 4 spots. The defense in Atlanta is notoriously bad, both in talent and coaching. Atlanta's last two top picks in the form of edge rushers have failed so I think they would be hesitant to take Epenesa and go with Fulton to try to assist the pass defense.
The Cardinals offense is, without a doubt, full of talent. The defense, however, is lacking on that front. They need an edge rusher to torment NFC West offenses and Epenesa will do just that.
The Eagles secondary is a joke. Diggs is a serious talent at his position and will be a cornerstone of a secondary that, hopefully, will be hugely focused upon in this offseason.
