Round 1

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

No fuss, no muss. The Jags take the predestined first pick overall and hope Lawrence is as transformative for them.


2. Jets: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

First big surprise! The new Jets coaching staff could try to rehab Darnold or move for a NFL-proven QB like Hurts with the draft capital they have. They do need to get more explosive players and none are more explosive than the Heisman Winner!


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

Having drafted Austin Jackson last year, maybe the Dolphins don't go for another big money OT right here. Instead, they try and help Tua by giving him one of the best WRs in the Draft.


4. Falcons: Gregory Rousseau, Defensive End, Miami

If the Falcons opt to keep faith with Matt Ryan at QB, they will move to improve a pass rush that remains a long-standing issue.


5. Bengals: Penei Sewell, Offensive Tackle, Oregon

Joe Burrow is the future in Cincy. Helping him and keeping him safe has to be the priority. If Sewell is there, it's a no-brainer.


6. Eagles: Patrick Surtain II, Cornerback, Alabama

If one of the top WRs falls here, that would be the pick. If both and Sewell are gone, the next highest need is a DB that can help the Eagles' pass defense improve.


7. Lions: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

There's every chance that Fields is gone by this point. There's every indication that Matthew Stafford will not return to Detroit given his high price. If so, landing a top QB prospect is a must.


8. Panthers: Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

There could be a push to get a QB prospect here or a LB like Parsons. However, Pitts is a mismatch with his combo of skills and size and the Panthers' offense needs weapons.


9. Broncos: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

Wherever the Broncos go here, they need to get a difference maker. Parsons is highly-rated and could be their next great LB.


10. Cowboys: Alijah Vera-Tucker, Offensive Guard, USC

The Boys' best years were built with the o-line as its foundation. Tucker can play either G or T and can be instrumental in keeping Dak safe.


11. Giants: Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

The Giants ranked second to last in offense last year. Any help for Daniel Jones should be welcomed!


12. 49ers: Caleb Farley, Cornerback, Virginia Tech

The Niners need to get younger at CB. Farley is one of the top CB prospects even without playing in 2020.


13. Chargers: Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Protecting Justin Herbert has to be priority #1 for the Bolts come next season. Leatherwood comes from one of the best offenses in CFB history and should fit fine in the NFL.


14. Vikings: Jaelan Phillips, Defensive End, Miami

Remember back when the Vikings had pass rushers who struck fear in the hearts of opponents? Any help in defense is good but improving the pass rush is almost mandatory.


15. Patriots: Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

There's every chance Wilson is long gone by now. If not, the Pats almost have to take him. They tried making do with Cam and Stidham but it wasn't enough.


16. Cardinals: Jaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

Patrick Peterson has been a great CB for the Cards but as he passes 30, Father Time is chasing him down. Getting younger in that area would be a big help.
