Based on current standings, obviously who's picking where changes a lot of things.

Round 1

1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Kizer is not the answer...but in Cleveland, no one has been. Darnold is talented enough to be the pick here, and be the Browns savior.


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

Best player in the draft. Dynamic rusher with excellent receiving abilities. Can form a stellar 1-2 punch with Carlos Hyde and allow CJ Breathard or Kirk Cousins to simply manage the game (see: Chicago Bears offense).

He would be the first overall, but the Browns will almost certainly go with either Darnold or Rosen.


3. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Born to be a quarterback. Pure skill is there, as is intelligence (raised by Ivy league parents). He has looked sloppy at times at UCLA, but at otehr times looked like a future NFL HoFer. If Rosen can keep his mouth shut, he gets picked high. If he becomes a distraction, he may slip.


4. Colts: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

Best Edge on the board, a position the Colts need desperately.




5. Raiders: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Massive body that runs a 4.5, sounds like he could match up beside 2017 second round draft pick Obi Melifonwu for years to come, threatening any deep threats.


6. Chargers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

With a secondary that stars the like of Tre Boston and Jahleel Addae, the Chargers need an impact player here. Jason Verrett will be back, Trevor Williams has looked great, and Casey Hayward can fall into a nickel slot, giving the Chargers a much-bolstered second level.


7. Bears: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

You drafted Mitch Trubisky. Now protect him.


8. Bengals: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

Geno Atkins, meet your new best friend. These two will clog up the interior, giving an already stout D-line, even more brickwallyness.


9. Buccaneers: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Quickl strong edge rusher that will complement Noah Spence


10. Cowboys: Da'Ron Payne, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The interior of the Cowboys d-line has been a weakness. Lawrence and Crawford off the edge have been great, as has Taco Charlton--but little production out of the biggest boys.


11. Ravens: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

The Ravens could use a receiver in Christian Kirk or Calvin Ridley. They could get the predecessor to Flacco in Josh Allen...but the injuries on the offensive line are too much. Staley has been a solid pick at tackle, and Yanda will continue elite production once he returns. The rest of the offensive line is a huge question mark


12. Cardinals: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

The Cardinals need a QB, but neither Allen or Jackson are NFL ready, right now. They go offensive line here, and hope David Johnson can carry them on his own.


13. Jets: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

Hackenberg isn't the answer. Petty isn't either. McCown can't be for much longer. Jackson is dynamic and can turn the Jets into an actual offensive threat, not just plain offensive.


14. Browns: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Corey Coleman is injured far too often to be a feasible long term option. Enter Calvin Ridley, the best offensive talent on the board.


15. Titans: Clelin Ferrell, Defensive End, Clemson

The offensive is set, now they can turn their eyes on the atrocious defensive line. Ferrell racks up the TFL at Clemson, and can do the same in Nashville.


16. Lions: Josh Allen, Outside Linebacker, Kentucky

The Lions defensive lion is solid, with Ansah, Spence and Robinson. The real weakness has been in the linebackers. Worrilow has been bad this year, and Allen can slide right into either the Sam or the Mike.
