Round 1

1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

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.

2. 49ers: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

Carlos Hyde is a free agent after this season and Barkley has the potential to be a transcendent back.

3. Giants: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

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.

4. Colts: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

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.

5. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

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.

6. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

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.

7. Raiders: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College

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.

8. Chargers: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

Williams could replace Joe Barksdale on the right side now and eventually replace Russell Okung down the road.

9. Bears: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Bears get a nice value pick here to bolster their secondary in case they lose Prince Amukamara or Kyle Fuller in free agency.

10. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

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.

11. Bengals: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

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.

12. Browns: Equanimeous St. Brown, Wide Receiver, Notre Dame

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.

13. Lions: Da'Ron Payne, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

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.

14. Redskins: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

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.

15. Ravens: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

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.

16. Broncos: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

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.
