Round 1

1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

Once again the Browns have the first pick, and if they don't want to screw it up like the last few drafts they'll go with Darnold. Cleveland's long-term search for a franchise QB ends with the star out of USC.

2. Giants: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

Although i think their are better options left at quarterback i.e. (Mayfield, Allen, Rudolph) The Giants take Rosen with the #2 overall pick. Rosen will fall flat within the next two years and we'll be in this same situation in 2020.

3. Jets: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

I know everyone is thinking quarterback for Jets, but if Barkley's still there at number 3, why not? Players like Saquon don't come around often and the Jets are certainly low on running backs after Matt Forte retired. After all they already have Teddy Bridgewater who's a pretty serviceable QB.

4. Browns: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

They have the offensive weapons to at least win them one game next season, their defense however could use some work. They have 0 quality corners after Joe Haden left, but Ward is a nice upgrade.

5. Broncos: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Cutting T.J. Ward was one of the most head-scratching moves last season. I'm not going to say it was the reason for there collapse, but it didn't help. Finding a replacement in the draft shouldn't be hard when there drafting this high.

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

A new offensive line is an urgent need especially at the guard position, opening holes for whoever the running back is in Indy next year is how they'll contend in a suddenly very competitive AFC South next season.

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

Chubb is the best pass rusher in the draft. The buc's bolster an already elite defensive line with young rookie talent in hopes of revamping the pass rush which ranked last in sacks in 2017 with 22.0.

8. Bears: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

The Bears play it safe here with Edmunds. Edmunds brings great tackling ability and should be a starter in the NFL for years to come.

9. 49ers: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Finding weapons for Jimmy Garoppolo is the top priority for the 49ers heading into the draft, to do so they draft Alabama's Calvin Ridley at number 9.

10. Raiders: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Another team that is last in an important category: interceptions (5). I expected them to take more corners in free agency but settling for James is not a complete loss.

11. Dolphins: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU

I'm still trying to figure out the Jay Ajayi trade, and only for a fourth rounder. The Dolphins do not have an elite runner, Kenyan Drake has shown some promise as a fill-in but the Miami organization knows he's not going to cut it

12. Bills: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

I don't really know why the team went out and got A.J. McCarron in free agency, someone who's started a total of three games in his four-year career, when they need someone in draft. But all that aside Josh Allen slides to #12 and the Bills get their next franchise QB.

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

The d-line for Washington is very underwhelming in terms of talent, i could see them going after free agent Johnathan Hankins, but in case he's not available the go with Payne with their top pick.

14. Packers: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

The Packers' only missing piece on the team... is their entire secondary, (except for you know who). Their inability to get Kevin King involved in the defense leads them back to the well in an attempt to find a new defensive playmaker.

15. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

It's official. Carson Palmer has retired. If Mayfield can put his problems behind him, he could be a gift to the Arizona Cardinals and will become their next franchise QB.

16. Ravens: Hayden Hurst, Tight End, South Carolina

Long time Raven Dennis Pitta is gone and the need for a pass catching Tight End is something John Harbaugh should consider fixing in the draft. Hurst is the top TE prospect in draft, and the Ravens snatch him with the 16th overall pick in the draft.
