One trade projected... kind of

Unless Burrow pulls a Eli Manning or Laremy Tunsil, he'll be the pick here. Despite not having elite physical attributes you usually see out of a #1 pick, Burrow is a proven winner with great intangibles and a functional arm. He's by far the safest QB in the class.
And the Redskins get the best player in the class. Hard imagining Young not being a consistent 10+ sack a year player.
Like Walt, I think the Lions trade this pick. However, I think this goes to the Dolphins who might be weary another team (Chargers) jumps them for a QB. I've watched a bit of tape on Herbert, and he's such a frustrating player. He's the clear third best QB in the class, but goes #3 here due to Tua's injury concerns. Herbert has the physical makeup of a superstar (see his game against Colorado) but is way too inconsistent for my liking.
I have Thomas slightly higher than Wirfs and Wills on my board. But I think the Giants like Wifs better. The Giants need to help out Jones and Barkley with better O-Line play. I could also see Simmons going here.
The Lions have a huge hole up front and Derrick Brown is a stud, but I can't shake the feeling that they are in love with Okudah. I still think he's the pick here.
The Chargers are usually a patient drafting team, so I believe it's more likely the Dolphins panic and trade up. Tua, if healthy, would be 1b to Burrow's 1a atop the QB class.
It's down to Simmons or Brown here. I believe the Panthers go for Brown in this scenario, as the positional value is a tad higher.
I believe Simmons will be a stud. The Cardinals need a guy like him roaming the middle of their defense.
Thomas is good value here and provides the Jaguars with much need Oline help.
The Browns need OLine help. I could see the Browns taking Becton over Wills.
I believe Wills has an argument on being the best offensive lineman in the class - he has unbelievable feet. He's a good pick here.
I've had Lamb as my top wideout for most of the season. Agreed with Charlie - he looks like a Davante Adams clone. He should be a very good pro.
The 49ers lost Emmanuel Sanders in free agency and find his replacement here.
If the Bucs don't trade out of this pick, I could see them taking Kinlaw here, who's probably the BPA. He's a menace as an interior disputer.
I could see Ruggs going to Oakland, but he fits well with the Broncos and will pair well with Courtland Sutton.
This is Henderson's floor. The Falcons make this pick quickly, as they need a replacement for Trufant.
