Deshone Kizer has gotten off to a rough start, and Cleveland is hard place to turn things around. There will most likely be a new front office and coach, so they might want to grab their own QB. Darnold has struggled, but still has all of the pieces of a franchise QB.
After getting Garroppolo, the 49ers no longer need a QB. They can use this pick to add weapons, and do so by grabbing the number one prospect in Barkley.
We don't know what Davis Webb can do yet, so until we do, the Giants need to take advantage of picking this high and grab a QB of the future. Rosen is the most polished passer in the draft.
The Buccaneers have one of the worst safety tandems in the NFL, and finding at least one new starter in round one will help. Luckily, Fitzaptrick is here and he is a versatile player who can help anywhere in the secondary.
Andrew Luck has never really had any protection, and it has caused him injury after injury. Nelson is one of the best OG prospects in a long time, and could go top five.
The Bengals have a lot of problems, and going BPA would be there best option here. Key has looked amazing since coming back from his injury, and if he is medically okay, he will be a top 10 pick.
Deshaun Watson's injury is a blessing for the Browns, as it looks like they'll end up with two top 10 picks. They can go ahead here and get a weapon to help Darnold and take Guice.
The Chargers haven't addressed their need at OT in the first round lately, and they could use the help on the line. McGlinchey is an athletic OT who can step in on the right side right away.
QB problems have plagued the Broncos since Peyton Manning retired. Trevor Siemian has played terribly this year, and they don't know what they have in Paxton Lynch. Allen wouldn't be able to get in right away, but he'll help give them time to sort out the issue and maybe get a great player out of it.
The Bears have been exceeding expectations this year. With no real need that can be filled here, they take the BPA in Chubb who to me could end up going in the top five. He's already a very polished pass rusher.
Like the Bears, the Ravens don't have a need that can be filled here and go BPA. Hurst is an undersized DT, but he can play DE in their 3-4 scheme. Hurst has the talent to be a run stopper and get to the QB.
Somehow this Jets team has been able to win four games and has gotten themselves out of the running for the top couple QBs. Jackson is a bit of a reach here, but he can wait a year or so behind McCown and improve on his passing which has gotten much better this season.
The biggest area of need for the Raiders is at LB. Nwosu is a very athletic OLB who can help in pass and run game. He's a smart, quick player.
Carson Palmer is all but done, so the Cardinals reach a little bit here for the last first round QB. Mayfield is an athletic player who makes plays, but still needs a little bit of work as a passer. He's accurate and good at limiting turnovers.
I don't know how much longer Suh is going to be in Miami, but either way the Dolphins could get some help along the defensive line. Wilkins can play at any spot and has a quick first step inside to help in the run or pass game.
The Falcons have been much worse than expected this year, and a lot has to do with the playcalling on offense. Given that, they go ahead here and fill a need at S. James is the kind athletic, versatile player that will fit right in on the Falcons defense.
