1) Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC – There is lots of Josh Allen talk lately, but I’m not buying it.
2) *Projected Trade* Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming – The Bills trade up once they know their guy is there and the Giants trade out because their top quarterback is not there.
3) New York Jets: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma – Mayfield is a great fit for the Jets.
4) *Projected Trade* Denver Broncos: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA – With Rosen still on the board, the Broncos aren’t willing to risk that someone else trades into this position.
5) *Projected Trade* Cleveland Browns: Saquon Barkley Running Back, Penn State – The Browns pick up some draft capital in the trade and still get the guy they wanted.
6) Indianapolis Colts: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, North Carolina State – The Colts still get their target after trading down.
7) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame – Thanks to quarterback fever, the Bucs get the top player in the draft at 7.
8) Chicago Bears: Tremaine Edmunds, Linebacker, Virginia Tech – Edmunds’ measurables push him in front of Roquon Smith.
9) San Francisco 49ers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State – Ward give the 49ers the shutdown corner that every defense needs.
10) Oakland Raiders: Roquan Smith, Linebacker, Georgia – Jon Gruden is an offensive coach, but defense is what won him a Super Bowl.
11) Miami Dolphins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington – With Suh gone this pick makes a lot of sense.
12) *Projected Trade* New York Giants: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College – The Giants build up front with perhaps the drafts best pass rusher.
13) Washington Redskins: Jaire Alexander, Cornerback, Louisville – Adding Alexander takes this secondary to another level.
14) Green Bay Packers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Defensive Back, Alabama – Fitzpatrick is a great fit for the Packers who will utilize him in a number of ways.
15) Arizona Cardinals: Josh Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa – The Cardinals have a number of needs, and Jackson is the best available player to fill one of them.
16) Baltimore Ravens: Rashaan Evans, Linebacker, Alabama – The Ravens add a piece in an attempt to get back to playing dominant defense.
17) Los Angeles Chargers: Maurice Hurst, Defensive Tackle, Michigan – Putting Hurst between Bosa and Ingram makes for a fearsome defensive line.
18) Seattle Seahawks: Marcus Davenport, Edge, Texas San-Antonio – The Seahawks need to replace the playmakers they have lost on defense.
19) Dallas Cowboys: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State – With a number of needs, the Cowboys opt for the best available player.
20) Detroit Lions: Taven Bryan, Defensive Tackle, Florida – The Lions opt for interior defensive line help.
21) Cincinnati Bengals: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame – The Bengals would have considered McGlinchey at 12, they immediately pounce on him at 21.
22) *Projected Trade* New York Giants: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas – The Giants use their second pick to get stronger on the offensive line sticking with the philosophy of building through the trenches.
23) New England Patriots: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama – Rarely does a team trade a player for a draft pick and replace the player with that very pick, but this works out so well for the Patriots. They get the deep threat they want on a rookie deal.
24) Carolina Panthers: Isaiah Oliver, Cornerback, Colorado – Wide receiver can wait, the Panthers have a much bigger need in the secondary.
25) Tennessee Titans: Leighton Vander Esch, Linebacker, Boise State – Vander Esch is an excellent fit to replace Avery Williamson.
26) Atlanta Falcons: Josh Sweat, Defensive End, Florida State – With Clayborn heading north the Falcons add another speedy pass rusher.
27) New Orleans Saints: Isaiah Wynn, Offensive Guard, Georgia – The Saints continue to improve their offensive line.
28) Pittsburgh Steelers: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville – In a move that shocks and terrifies the entire AFC, the Steelers draft Roethlisberger’s heir apparent.
29) Jacksonville Jaguars: Will Hernandez, Offensive Guard, Texas-El Paso – Fournette’s running style requires talent up front to open holes for him.
30) Minnesota Vikings: Dallas Goedert, Tight End, South Dakota State – Goedert has been compared to Zach Ertz, which makes him a great fit with the Vikings’ new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.
31) New England Patriots: Mason Rudolph, Quarterback, Oklahoma – Belichick admires are talent, and Mason has plenty of that. In a draft without Josh Allen, Rudolph would be long gone.
32) Philadelphia Eagles: Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU – The Eagles continue to add talent with Guice.
