Since they were willing to bench DeShone Kizer after 5 games, it's safe to say he's not the long term answer at QB.
Carlos Hyde is a free agent after this season and Barkley has the potential to be a transcendent back.
The Giants most likely won't be picking this high and if they did, they might go QB, but its hard to pass up a legit left tackle that enables them to move Ereck Flowers to another position.
Barkley or Adams would be the pick if they were still here, but the Colts can still get the best pass rusher in the draft.
So far, Tampa has been one of the more underwhelming teams in the league. If they manage to get a pick this high, they should take the best player available.
Josh McCown's not the long term answer and if Christian Hackenberg can't beat out Bryce Petty for the backup job, he probably isn't either.
Given their personnel, it's a surprise that the Raiders have the 4th least amount of sacks in the league so far. Aldon Smith hasn't played in two years and probably won't be resigned.
Williams could replace Joe Barksdale on the right side now and eventually replace Russell Okung down the road.
The Bears get a nice value pick here to bolster their secondary in case they lose Prince Amukamara or Kyle Fuller in free agency.
Carson Palmer's injury means that the Cards will be rolling with Drew Stanton for the next 8 weeks. Palmer will be 38 next year coming off a broken arm, they could grab his successor right here.
The Bengals have been rotating three guys between two tackle spots. Andre Smith, Cedric Ogbuehi, and Jake Fisher have all been unspectacular this year and the Bengals could use some stability on the line.
With Corey Coleman out, nobody on the Browns roster has really emerged as a starting caliber wideout. St. Brown's my favorite receiver in the draft and would be a great complement next to Coleman.
Haloti Ngata is on IR and expires after this season. Detroit could use another young DT to pair with A'Shawn Robinson, who has been pretty good so far.
The Redskins need some kind of backup in case they lose Kirk Cousins. Josh Allen is a cut below the top 3 QBs to me, but some people are high on him.
Jeremy Maclin is the only solid receiver on the Ravens signed through next year. Kirk is a versatile player and could develop into a dynamic wideout.
The quarterback situation in Denver is quite murky, to say the least. However, I think they'll eventually give Paxton Lynch a chance before using another first rounder on a QB. Quenton Nelson is the consensus best guard in the draft and should be an immediate starter.
