I run my mock drafts like I am the General Manager of each team. My priorities are QB, playmakers, pass coverage, pass protection, and pass rush. I will only trade draft capital for a franchise QB. It is never worth it to reach for a need. Taking the best player available is a good strategy.

This is a no brainer. Best QB prospect in years and we need a QB.
Sorry for the previous regime that messed up Sam Darnold, he could have been the guy but that ship has passed. We need a franchise QB. Some think Zach Wilson is better than Fields, really? Fields dominated for 2 seasons in a better conference against better opponents. He took his team to the college football playoffs both seasons. He has athleticism to run as well as being able to make ever throw.
We didn't trade up to take an offensive tackle or WR. Wilson has true franchise QB potential. We think he can be dynamic in our system plus he is a lot cheaper than Jimmy G who can't even stay on the field.
We had been hanging on ever since our Super Bowl melt down but now we have a new coaching staff and it is time to think about the future. Lance has the potential to be a franchise QB plus we can let him sit for a year behind Ryan before starting. You can't pass up a franchise QB when you have the chance to take one.
We have our franchise QB in Joe Burrow but we need a third playmaker on the outside to give him all the weapons to succeed. Smith has completely annihilated the best of college football for 2 seasons including the Heisman Trophy last season. He is the best playmaker in this draft.
**TRADE*** The Miami Dolphins trade Tua Tagovailoa, the #6 pick and the #36 pick to the Seattle Seahawks for Russell Wilson. The Dolphins are in win now mode and with a certified franchise QB we become instant Super Bowl contenders.
As for the Seahawks, Wilson is taking up most of our payroll and has expressed his unhappiness with our organization. Getting a 1st and 2nd round pick plus a potential young franchise QB allows us to stay competitive and add more overall talent to our squad to stay in the hunt for a Super Bowl.
(As Seattle) Our offensive line has not been great for years so adding a sure fire stud OT is priority number one for a new young QB. Sewell has elite size, athleticism and technique making him well worth this pick.
We lost our #1 WR so we need to add another one. Thankfully Chase is still on the board. Chase has the size, speed, and hands to become a Pro Bowl WR.
***TRADE***The Carolina Panthers trade pick #8, #39, our 1st round pick of 2022 and Teddy Bridgewater to the Texans for Deshawn Watson. We are ready to take the next step as a franchise and getting a sure fire franchise QB in Watson is worth the draft capital.
As the Texans we have seriously messed up our team but we have a new management in place. We recognize that Watson is unhappy and we don't want to hold him back. Getting 2 first round picks, a 2nd and a starting QB to hold us over for now is a good return.
Pitts is the best playmaker available in the draft. He destroyed college football last year. He can line up at TE or WR and beat you with his size or speed. With no franchise QB being available we take the best playmaker.
Some are still questing Drew Lock at QB. Remember folks he has roughly played one full season at QB while dealing with less than ideal off-seasons and our stud WR missing a ton of time. We like his development and want to continue to build. After his Pro Day, Surtain is the best pass coverage asset in this draft. You need 3 stud CB's to have a great defense.
After making Dak Presscott one of the highest paid QB's in the NFL, we need to make sure he is protected. Tyron Smith has been injured a lot recently and we think Slater can play LT or improve any other position on the offensive line.
We have added a #1 WR and #2 CB in free agency so our biggest need is edge rusher. Rousseau dominated college football 2 seasons ago and has the size/speed combo to be an impact player on the edge.
We know that we took Reagor in the 1st round of last year but we need more playmakers for our young QB Jalen Hurts. Waddle has the game breaking speed you just can't coach or pass up.
We have a franchise QB in Justin Herbert now we need to protect him. We has a terrible offensive line last year. We made some improvements in free agency but we still need a LT.
Parsons is an elite athlete with the ability to play LB or edge rusher. We plan to use him for both to help make our defense elite.
We need a franchise QB. Jones has looked great in his time at Alabama. Some would argue that he was an average talent with superior talent all around him. Yes, he did have superior talent all around him but he still made it work. He has the tools to be great and having a franchise QB is the most important thing in the NFL so spending a first round pick on someone that has the potential is worth it.
We lost one of the all time greats in Patrick Peterson so we need to draft a starter. Horn is a stud CB with all the tools to be a starter in this league.
