Round 1

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

Urban Meyer gets his QB of the next ten years. Lawrence is the most sure thing since Andrew Luck.

2. Jets: Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

Wilson is brought in to New York to replace, and hopefully not replicate, the arduous tenure of Sam Darnold.

3. 49ers: Mac Jones, Quarterback, Alabama

Possibly the reach of the draft, Kyle gets down to some Shanahanigans and picks Jimmy G's heir apparent. He will replace him sooner rather than later; however, at what cost?

4. Falcons: Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

Pitts, the most athletic player in the draft, is brought in as the Falcons shop Julio Jones. He becomes the focal point of the offense.

5. Bengals: Ja'Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

Foregoing the selection of protecting Joe Burrow, Bengals brass brings in a target for him instead, creating a three headed monster of Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd.

6. Chargers: Penei Sewell, Offensive Tackle, Oregon

The first big trade of the night occurs, and it's not for a QB. Herbert gets his wish to have Sewell in LA with him. Former college teammates, Sewell provides immediate upgrade to the offensive line.

7. Lions: Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Waddle is brought in to replace both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. While not the Heisman Winner, Waddle creates elite separation and will be the #1 for Matthew Stafford.

8. Redskins: Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

Another trade, this time for a QB. Washington trades up to get Trey Lance, the biggest enigma in the draft but arguably who boasts one of the highest upsides. Lance hasn't thrown a meaningful pass in quite some time, but possesses the size and strength to become a fantastic QB in the NFL.

9. Broncos: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

Micah Parsons comes off the board after a run on offensive talent. As the first defensive player taken, he will join Von Miller and Bradley Chubb in the linebacker corps in Denver to create a fast, versatile set. Trading for Bridgewater changed things big time in Denver.

10. Cowboys: Jaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

Dallas needs a corner, and they get one here. Horn is from an NFL pedigree, and has the size and athleticism to compete from day one in what will be a very pass happy division.

11. Giants: Kwity Paye, Defensive End, Michigan

Needing speed off the edge, Dave Gettleman, who doesn't trade down, fills his need here. Paye wreaked havoc up at Michigan, and hopes to continue his run in New York.

12. Eagles: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

DeVonta Smith, the Heisman winner, comes off the board and goes to the Eagles, who need weapons. Smith is one of the most elite athletes in the draft, and by adding him, Philly gets someone Jalen Hurts can depend on.

13. Dolphins: Rashawn Slater, Offensive Guard, Northwestern

Slater falls, but the Dolphins, who traded down with the Chargers, get who they wanted all along. Miami has been playing chess, not checkers, this offseason, and in addition to getting Slater, they set themselves up for the future with draft picks as well.

14. Vikings: Trevon Moehrig, Safety, TCU

Minnesota added Patrick Peterson in the offseason, but lost Anthony Harris. Moehrig, a cerebral player from Northwestern, gets the nod here. Playing in a similar scheme that he played in college now with the Vikings, he will succeed early.

15. Patriots: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

Bill Belicheck was thought to be looking to trade up, but as the picks fall, he doesn't need to and gets the guy he wanted all along. We saw what Fields did at OSU, and will get to learn behind Cam Newton for a year before taking the reigns in New England.

16. Cardinals: Patrick Surtain, Cornerback, Alabama

Surtain is brought in to replace Patrick Peterson, and with his NFL pedigree and the success he had at Alabama, it's a no brainer to bring him in to this up and coming team. Surtain slots in Day One as a starter and will attempt to replicate the success his predecessor had at the position in AZ.
