1.TRADE! Cardinals – Raiders: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma
Jon Gruden is crazy and according to Benjamin Allbright, he’s working on a “super team” of Kyler, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell. With three first round picks, I think Gruden will trade up and get Kyler despite having Derek Carr.
2. 49ers: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State
The 49ers need a pass rusher on their defense and Bosa may be the most talented one in the draft. He’s NFL ready and will be a nice pairing with second year linebacker Fred Werner.The 49ers are looking at a bright future.
3. Jets: Josh Allen Edge Kentucky
I could see the Jets trading back if the Giants or Redskins want to rush for Dwayne Haskins. The Jets desperately need a pass rusher and with 31.5 career sacks at Kentucky,Allen could be that guy. Remember last year current Bills quarterback Josh Allen was a possibility for the Jets, but instead they drafted Sam Darnold
4. TRADE! Raiders-Cardinals : Quinnen Williams DT Alabama
This is a win win for Arizona. They could get Williams at one but they still could snag him at four trading with Oakland, so the Raiders could move up to number one. Williams to some analyst is the second best player in the draft and the Cardinals could use him to blossom their D-line.
5. Buccaneers: Montez Sweat Edge Mississippi St
The Bucs need an explosive pass rusher under new DC Todd Bowles and their 3-4 scheme. They also need to replace Vinny Curry. Sweat helped his stock at the combine and had 12 sacks this pass season.
6. Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State
The Giants passed on Sam Darnold last year and cannot do the same this year. I think the Giants will do whatever it takes (trading up) to get their guy Haskins. Big Blue needs to find a successor for Eli Manning.
7. Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor OL Florida
Taylor seemed to be the most impressive offensive lineman at the combine. It seems the Jags will sign free agent Nick Foles so they need an offensive- lineman to protect and be able to run the ball down teams throat with Leonard Fournette.
8. Lions: Rashan Gary DL Michigan
The Lions need a stud on their defensive-line and Gary could be that guy. Him paired with Damon Snacks Harrison could be part of a new culture in Detroit.
9. Buffalo Bills D.K. Metcalf WR Ole Miss
Metcalf is an absolute freak of nature. He’s 6 feet 4 inches and has blazing fast speed. Josh Allen needs a big play wideout to throw deep 50-50 balls to and Metcalf is that guy.
10. TRADE! Broncos – Redskins: Drew Lock QB Missouri
The ‘Skins need a QB more than any team in the league in my opinion. If they miss on Murray, or Haskins Lock is the next best quarterback. Washington could try and sign a quarterback but, I think they want to go with a younger option.
11. Bengals: Devin White LB LSU
White is the best linebacker in the draft and could be a difference maker starting day one for the Bengals, who had one of the worst defense last season. The Bengals need a difference maker like White.
12. Packers: Brian Burns DE Florida State
The Packers have two first round picks this year and desperately need a pass rusher. Burns had 10.5 sacks last season
13. Dolphins: Ed Oliver DT Houston
I think the Dolphins will wait to draft a QB until next year or sign one in free agency. Oliver could be a rebuilding point for the Dolphins under new coach Brian Flores.
14. Falcons: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson
The Falcons need a big play guy on defense and Wilkins made some big plays at Clemson. With Dan Quinn taking over the defensive play calling I expect the Falcons to be more aggressive on defense.
15. Broncos: Jonah Williams OT Alabama
I think the Broncos would take Williams at their original nine spot so sliding back and getting him at 15 is a win -win. They need to improve their offensive-line to protect the newly acquired Joe Flacco.
16. Panthers: Clellin Ferrell DE Clemson
Ferrell to me is one of the most underrated players in this draft. He had 11.5 sacks last season and could be a replacement for Julius Peppers who just retired.
17. Browns: Devin Bush LB Michigan
The Browns already have a star pass rusher in Myles Garrett, a young stud corner in Denzel Ward and now they can add a versatile linebacker in Bush.
18. Vikings: Andre Dillard OT Washington State
The Vikings need to go back to their ground and pound with Dalvin Cook and adding Dillard could help. Plus they need to protect their $85M dollar quarterback.
19. Titans: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma
Brown could of been the first WR off the board but injury kept him out of the combine. Marcus Mariota needs a big play WR and Brown is exactly that. He was lucky enough to have Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray as his quarterbacks.
20. Steelers: Greedy Williams CB LSU
The Steelers need a big play corner. Williams could be a nice duo along Joe Haden, who also played in the SEC as a Florida Gator.
21. Seahawks: Cody Ford OT Oklahoma
The Seahawks need more protection for Russell Wilson. He’s been of of the most pressured QBs over the last few seasons so an offensive lineman will help out. Ford protected Mayfield and Murray during his time at OU.
22. Ravens: N’Keal Harry WR ASU
The Ravens desperately need a WR, after they released Michael Crabtree. Harry, who is a tall physical receiver, could help out the young Lamar Jackson.
23. Texans: Rock Ya-Sin CB Temple
Ya-Sin had a very impressive combine and should jump on a lot of teams draft board. The Texans release Kevin Johnson and are in need of a CB, and Ya-Sin is the second best corner in this draft, in my opinion.
24. Cardinals: Dexter Lawrence DE Clemson
I think the Raiders will trade this pick to get the number one overall pick. If the cardinals could get Quinnen Williams early and Lawrence here they are paving the way for a nightmare for opposing offenses.
25. Eagles: Byron Murphy CB Washington
The Eagles could go running back here, but I think they sign Le’veon Bell. Ronald Darby is a free agent so they need a new star corner.
26. Colts: Hakeem Butler WR Iowa State
The Colts could use another weapon alongside the speedster TY Hilton. Butler is a big body standing at six feet six inches tall. Butler’s size makes me believe they would take him over AJ Brown or Parris Campbell.
27. Raiders: Jaylon Ferguson Edge Louisiana Tech
The Raiders could get their quarterback at first overall and a pass rusher here. Ferguson could of been a top 15 pick if he didn’t get into trouble earlier in his college career, but he can ball out. He had 17.5 sacks last season.
28. Chargers: AJ Brown WR Ole Miss
Another weapon for Philip Rivers won’t hurt, especially since Tyrell Williams is a free agent. Brown had 19 career TD’s at Ole Miss and could be a nice trio with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
29. Chiefs: DeAndre Baker CB Georgia
The Chiefs Achilles heel last year was their defense, especially their secondary. Adding Baker won’t solve all their defensive woes but it’s a great start for a team whose an early Super Bowl favorite.
30. Packers: Jonathan Abram SS Mississippi State
The Packers traded Ha Ha Clinton -Dix and they need to fill a hole at safety. Abraham is known to be a big hitter and could be a nice piece for a young Packers secondary, along with defensive back Jarie Alexander and Kevin King.
31. Rams: Jachai Polite DE Florida
Polite had a bad combine but his skills are there to be a first rounder. He had 11 sacks last season and could help the Rams pass rush who may lose some players in free agency.
32. Patriots: TJ Hockenson TE Iowa
It’s time for the Pats to plan for life after Rob Gronkowski and Hockenson could be that guy.He was impressive at the combine.
