peep my mock draft

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Jets: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Pretty self explanatory. Best QB in the draft, first overall pick, Jets desperately in need of a quarterback.

2. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

Isaiah Crowell isn't bad but his contract will expire this off season, and Saquon Barkley is easily the best running back in this draft. One of the only things the Browns have going for them is their O-line. Put a running back like Saquon Barkley behind it and that's pretty scary already.

3. 49ers: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Super good quarterback as well. There's a high chance the 49ers will sign Kirk Cousins next off season, but Josh Rosen is, in my opinion, a much better option, especially looking forward.

4. Bills: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

This guy's a beast and Buffalo needs pass rushers. It'd be a sin to let Arden Key fall any lower than top 5 in this draft.

5. Saints: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

The Saints might as well only draft defensive players this year. That's how bad their defense is now. Christian Wilkins is one of the best defensive tackles in this draft, so it's logical that the Saints pick him up with the 5th overall pick. This could probably be switched with someone like Da'Ron Payne though.

6. Giants: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

Best offensive linemen in the draft by far. The Giants really really need to address their O-line, and with such a high pick, picking the best guard in the draft only makes sense.

7. Bears: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Literally every mock draft has Derwin James going to Chicago so I might as well have him going there too.

8. Colts: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College

Indianapolis needs pass rushers, Harold Landry is the best option available. Nuff said.

9. Bengals: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

A lot of people are saying the Bengals should draft a QB here or bench Andy Dalton for AJ McCarron, but it's not much of a problem with Dalton as it is their O-line. Next to the Giants and the Texans, Cinci's offensive line has been among the worst in the league. Trey Adams is one of the best tackles in the draft, they pick him up with the ninth overall pick.

10. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

Even if Josh Allen makes more sense here, watching Lamar Jackson continue to play for a Cardinals team would be so much cooler. Carson Palmer should retire this offseason, which means Arizona really needs a franchise quarterback. Arizona hasn't really ever had a quarterback as dynamic as Lamar Jackson is, and with the best running back in the league, they could run the read option.

11. Redskins: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

It's been two weeks and the Redskins have already begun to miss Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Jamison Crowder is good but Terrelle Pryor isn't really the deep threat Kirk Cousins needs. This pick could probably be switched out for someone like Christian Kirk, but whatever.

12. Jaguars: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

I don't need to explain this. Blake Bortles is awful. Getting Josh Allen this low is a steal. It's a no brainer.

13. Panthers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Ever since Josh Norman left Carolina, they went from one of the league's best secondaries to one of the league's worst. Having someone like Minkah Fitzpatrick would help them out big time and might help them contend in a division with some of the best receivers in the league.

14. Browns: Iman Marshall, Cornerback, USC

Cleveland needs someone to replace Joe Haden. Jabrill Peppers already looks like a really promising safety. Getting someone like Iman Marshall in the draft could bolster this Cleveland secondary into something special.

15. Cowboys: Sam Hubbard, Defensive End, Ohio State

Even in their dominant win against the Giants, whom quite possibly have the worst O-line the NFL, Dallas's pass rush was passable at best. They need defensive ends.

16. Chargers: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Losing Forrest Lamp really sucked for Chargers fans. Him coming back to line up with someone like Mike McGlinchey could catch the league by surprise, especially in a division with some of the best pass rushers in the league. The Chargers have a good receiving core, they just need an offensive line to buy Phillip Rivers some time to get the ball to them.
