Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Jets: Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson

If the Jets get the first pick, Sam Darnold will be out as QB as the new regime will bring in their own QB and start fresh. Lawrence is the best QB prospect we've seen in a while.

2. Giants: Gregory Rousseau, Defensive End, Miami

The Giants need help everywhere but their pass rush has been lacking for a long time. Rousseau is just a beast in Miami.

3. Jaguars: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

Gardner Minshew has not been very good and with a new regime most like incoming means a QB swap if they land a high pick. I think Fields is a very close second to Lawrence.

4. Falcons: Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

The Falcons have a new GM and head coach coming in and I can see them starting from scratch and getting their QB of the future to replace Matt Ryan. Lance has the tools but needs development which is perfect since Matt Ryan has 3 years left on his contract after this year and the Falcons can get out of it and save money if they trade or cut him in the 2022 offseason. This possibly lines up with Lance's development timeline.

5. Dolphins: Penei Sewell, Offensive Tackle, Oregon

It's officially Tua Time and the Dolphins should focus on building around him. The Dolphins take a stud offensive lineman in Sewell who has killed it his whole college career.

6. Panthers: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

Vikings receive: #13 and #45
Panthers receive: #6

The Panthers could be in win now mode with Drew Brees possibly retiring and the Falcons rebuilding. They've over-achieved this year and could be willing to give up assets for studs while the Vikings receive a 2nd round pick as they flipped their own for Yannick Ngakoue. Parsons is a versatile and athletic linebacker who could be fill the void in Carolina left by Luke Kuechly.

7. Bengals: Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Burrow has been very vulnerable behind the Bengals' horrible offensive line and building around their new franchise QB is a must for the Bengals.

8. Dolphins: Ja'Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

Cowboys receive: #14, #48, and #110
Dolphins receive: #8

The Cowboys suck and they barely have any picks this year so any value they can get with this pick they have to take while the Dolphins continue to build around Tua. Preston Williams is good but giving Tua an elite option like Chase is a no-brainer.

9. Redskins: Sam Cosmi, Offensive Tackle, Texas

The QB situation is super messy right now but it makes sense that Washington decides to re-sign Kyle Allen and have him battle for the spot with Alex Smith and focus on the QB situation in the 2022 Draft. They have a lot of needs but their offensive line has struggled so I think Cosmi fits the bill here.

10. Chargers: Patrick Surtain, Cornerback, Alabama

With the top OT's off the board, I think the Chargers should just go best player available here. Surtain does fit a need in LA as their secondary has been banged up this year and Chris Harris Jr. and Casey Hayward are not getting any younger while Desmond King could departure from the team in free agency. I think Surtain has a slight edge over Wade and Farley for the top corner in this year's class.

11. Patriots: Christian Barmore, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Patriots need help on the defensive line and I can see Belichick looking towards Alabama as usual to get this help. Barmore is going to be a riser in this draft.

12. Broncos: Shaun Wade, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Broncos have needed secondary help since Chris Harris Jr. departed. A.J. Bouye is also hurt and old so Wade makes sense here.

13. Vikings: Carlos Basham, 3-4 Defensive End, Wake Forest

Vikings receive: #13 and #45
Panthers receive: #6

The Vikings chose to restart from scratch and get more pass rushing help after trading back since they missed out on the QB's.

14. Cowboys: Caleb Farley, Cornerback, Virginia Tech

Cowboys receive: #14, #48, and #110
Dolphins receive: #8

The Cowboys defense needs so much work especially their corners who have gotten burned every single week as Trevon Diggs is still developing and Chidobe Awuzie is injured and might depart due to how little money the Cowboys have. Farley is the last of the corners who I think can go in this range.

15. Raiders: Dylan Moses, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

The Raiders could use some linebacker help and I think Moses is a perfect fit here.

16. Lions: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Marvin Jones are Danny Amendola are probably done in Detroit leaving the Lions with really only Kenny Golladay and Quintez Cephus as their two viable receivers and this team is going to need weapons for Matthew Stafford if they wanna compete in a shootout against the Packers or a competitive defense in the Bears. Kenny Golladay and DeVonta Smith would be a great WR duo with T.J. Hockenson and D'Andre Swift still at the Lions disposal.
