1. Cleveland Browns
With all of the draft capital they had, they should be at the top of this list. The Browns started off the draft by taking who they hope will be their franchise quarterback in Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick. Three picks later they added the top player at another marquee position in Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward. They also added running back Nick Chubb. People forget how talented the Georgia product is because he has split time with Sony Michel recently, but Chubb can play. They added an talented offensive linemen in Nevada’s Austin Corbett and troubled, but talented Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway. They also added talented defensive players in Miami edge Chad Thomas and Memphis linebacker Genard Avery.
2. Green Bay Packers
The Packers added two of the best cornerbacks in the draft in Louisville’s Jaire Alexander and Iowa’s Josh Jackson and picked up a first rounder for next year in the process. They added another talented defender in Vanderbilt linebacker Oren Burks who had impressive workouts. They also selected a pair of receivers who could push for time in the absence of Jordy Nelson. J’Mon Moore is a speedy and underrated wide receiver from Missouri. Equanimeous St. Brown is a bigger receiver who can win contest catch situations.
3. Dallas Cowboys
To start the draft the Cowboys added an extremely athletic linebacker with huge upside in Boise State’s Leighton Vander Esch. They then added Connor Williams in the second. Williams was seen as the top left tackle in the class at the beginning of the season, but his final year at Texas featured a long-term injury and a drop off in play. Also concern grw that Williams may not have the length to play tackle. The Cowboys get a steal selecting him as a guard in the second. Colorado State’s Michael Gallup may be the best receiver in this class when all is said and done. Gallup is fast and runs great routes. He will need to get better at his releases, but could be the number one receiver for the Cowboys. Dorance Armstrong from Kansas gives the team another talented pass rusher. Dalton Schultz may not have been the most talked about tight end in the draft, but the Stanford product is a great replacement for Jason Witten. He is a talented blocker who can make plays in the pass game when called upon.
4. New York Giants
Saquon Barkley is an incredible talent and is use properly the Penn State running back should get the Giants’ offense back on track. Adding UTEP guard Will Hernandez should help to open holes for him. Georgia edge Lorenzo Carter is extremely talented and should have a big impact on the Giants’ defense. Pundits who wanted the Giants to draft Eli Manning’s heir apparent with the second overall pick may have gotten their wish later in the draft as the Giants selected Richmond quarterback Kyle Lauletta. Lauletta has long been linked to the Patriots and is seen as a player who could develop into an NFL starter.
5. Buffalo Bills
Say what you will about Josh Allen, the Wyoming quarterback will probably be starting for the Bills early in 2018. He has a huge arm, but accuracy is a major concern. The Bills added another player with massive upside in round one with Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. They continued to add to their defense with noted linemen Harrison Phillips from Stanford and criminally underrated Jacksonville State defensive back Siran Neal.
