Round 1

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

Lawrence is the pick, plain and simple. He does everything out on the field, including win, and makes it look easy. Picks aren't any easier to make than this.


2. Jets: Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

I think Coach Saleh and company are considering a lot of options here, but when it comes down to it moving on from Darnold and picking their own franchise QB would be a sound choice. With that in mind the pick is down to Wilson and Fields. Wilson had a great season and his strong arm, accuracy, and ability to take off could get him drafted here.


3. Dolphins: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

The Dolphins are in a great position. They are coming off a 10 win season, nearly all of their starters are under contract, they're in the top 10 in the league in cap space, and they have two first and two second round picks. So why not spend this first one getting the Heisman winner who happens to be a target Tua is very comfortable with.


4. Falcons: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

Fields grew up not too far from Atlanta and the Falcons may be looking for the next franchise QB. With Fields having great athleticism and a talented arm, the Falcons might want to bring Fields back home to Georgia.


5. Bengals: Penei Sewell, Offensive Tackle, Oregon

Decisions, decisions. Do you take a franchise left tackle or go with Joe Burrow's Biletnikoff Award winning receiver from college? It would be awesome to add Chase alongside Higgins and Boyd, but it would be more awesome to keep Joe Burrow healthy the whole season.


6. Eagles: Patrick Surtain, Cornerback, Alabama

Philly has had two main problems since its Super Bowl season; corners and receivers. After taking Reagor and Arcega-Whiteside high the last two drafts, they'll see how they develop along with some other talent at the position. But after being in the bottom five against the pass this season even with being in the top five in creating pressure, the Eagles need some DBs, and a lockdown corner to go with Darius Slay is a great start.


7. Lions: Ja'Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

Even if the Lions franchise tag Kenny Golladay, almost every other receiver on the roster is set to be a free agent, and Detroit doesn't have money to bring them back. Luckily for them a WR1 is there for them with their pick.


8. Panthers: Caleb Farley, Cornerback, Virginia Tech

Corners are a hot commodity in today's passing league, and for a Carolina defense that needs help defending the pass it's an even bigger deal. Farley is long, athletic, and has potential to be a lockdown corner. This would be a great addition to the Panthers defensive backfield.


9. Broncos: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

Denver was in the bottom five for yards per carry and rushing touchdowns allowed this season. Parsons flies around making tackles all over the field and is a good blitzer too.


10. Cowboys: Rashawn Slater, Offensive Guard, Northwestern

I can see this pick going in a lot of different directions, which isn't a good thing for the Cowboys. In the end though injuries on the OL have been a huge problem for Dallas. Slater can play any position on the line and in 2019 allowed no sacks as a left tackle.


11. Giants: Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Daniel Jones will get one more season to prove himself, and for a fair opportunity another weapon is needed. Waddle gets himself open and anytime he touches the ball could easily be a touchdown.


12. 49ers: Sam Cosmi, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Trent Williams is headed to free agency and will be 33-years-old next season. Cosmi is an extremely athletic left tackle who could replace Williams, and if they want to keep Williams, he would have no problems playing inside.


13. Chargers: Christian Darrisaw, Offensive Tackle, Virginia Tech

Justin Herbert had a great season but the Chargers need to continue to surround him with talent and more importantly keep him healthy. His blindside looks like it could be an issue, so that needs addressed now, and Darrisaw can fill that hole day 1.


14. Vikings: Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

I had Minnesota taking Lance in my last mock and I'll do it again because I think it's a great idea. Lance could use a year to sit, and Cousins is the type of smart decision maker that is great for a young, talented QB to learn from. Then after the year save $35 million by releasing him and give Lance the reins to the franchise.


15. Patriots: Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

This is not often said about tight ends, but if Pitts is still on the board mid-first he is a steal. Pitts is a weapon no matter where he is lined up or where on the field the offense is. He breaks long touchdowns, makes contested catches, and wins in the redzone with ease. This would be a huge get for the Patriots and whoever their quarterback will be next season.


16. Cardinals: Joseph Ossai, Linebacker, Texas

A lot of Arizona's defensive success this season came from pass-rush. A few of their edge rushers contracts are up so finding a replacement could be big. Ossai is explosive getting to the QB and can stop the run. Put him on the opposite side of Chandler Jones and now opposing quarterbacks have something to be scared of.
