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.
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.
A new offensive line is an urgent need especially the tackle position, opening holes for Frank Gore or whoever the running back is in Indy next year is how they'll contend in a suddenly very competitive AFC South next season.
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.
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.
Arguably the best offensive player in the draft falls to New York merely because nobody drafting in the top 5 needed a running back. With Matt Forte descending every year, the Jets need a true #1 runner to boost the running game.
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.
This could be the Bears best wide receiver corps yet; with Cameron Meredith coming back and then expecting Kendall Wright re-signs next season with the combination of Ridley. The Bears can really improve their offense depending on how Matt Nagy develops Mitchell Trubisky
Finding weapons for Jimmy Garoppolo is the top priority for the 49ers heading into the draft. I'm sure their hoping Alabama's Calvin Ridley falls to number 9 but they'll have to settle for the wide receiver out of SMU.
Another team that is last in an important category: interceptions (5). I expect them to take a corner in free agency in what should be a total rebuild in the Oakland secondary.
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
Expect the Bengals to draft a signal caller here if they don't get one in free agency, but because i think they get Captain Kirk this offseason, offensive guard is next in line.
The secondary for the 'Skins is one of the most underwhelming secondary's in the league, James' electrifying play is maybe just what Washington needs to become a contender in the league again.
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.
It's official. Carson Palmer has retired. Rudolph is probably the most NFL ready quarterback in the draft, and a gift to the Arizona Cardinals will become their next franchise QB.
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.
