1. Cardinals: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

Everyone knows by now that the Cardinals prefer to have Murray over Josh Rosen. Arizona has been shopping Rosen at the combine and Murray is the better fit in Kingsbury offense.

2. TRADE! 49ers – Broncos: Drew Lock QB Mizzou

Flacco will be the bridge QB until Lock is ready to take over.

3. Jets: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State

Jets take the best player in the draft. He can lineup anywhere on the field.

4. Raiders: Josh Allen DE Kentucky

Oakland needs to find a replacement for Khalil Mack.

5. Buccaneers: Quinnen Williams DT Alabama

There have been rumors Gerald McCoy may get cut, but pairing Williams alongside McCoy and Vita Vea would be a solid move.

6. Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

Giants need to find the quarterback of the future. Haskins is a project, but could develop to be a solid player.

7. Jaguars: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma

Brown is the best wide receiver in the draft and the Jaguars need to find a legitimate target for future quarterback Nick Foles.

8. Lions: Devin White LB LSU

Detroit struggled on defense last year and White is one of the best players in the draft. Lions should sprint to the podium and hand in this pick.

9. Bills: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida

Bills need to protect Josh Allen. Taylor has been considered the best offensive tackle in the draft.

10. 49ers: Rashan Gary DE Michigan

San Francisco trades back and still lands a really talented player in Gary. He lined up everywhere on Michigan’s defense that was ranked number one in the country.

11. Bengals: Andre Dillard OT Washington State

Cincinnati has had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL in the past couple of years. They’ve struggled to find a replacement for Andrew Whitworth.

12. Packers: Ed Oliver DT Houston

Green Bay needs to focus on the defense with this pick and bringing Ed Oliver into Mike Pettine’s defense would be a smart move.

13. Dolphins: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State

This guy is an athletic freak and probably the best player on the board. Dolphins would be lucky to land this guy.

14. TRADE! Falcons – Raiders: Daniel Jones QB Duke

Raiders aren’t sold on Derek Carr. Gruden wants his own quarterback.

15. Redskins: D.K. Metcalf WR Ole Miss

Metcalf lit up the combine and is rising up draft boards. He struggles running precise routes and that’s a huge problem. Some team will reach for him.  

16. Panthers: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson

Wilkins is one of the best players in the draft and someone who should be drafted in the top 10. Carolina will be psyched to land him at this spot.

17.TRADE!  Browns – Giants: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson

Browns receive: WR Odell Beckham – Giants receive: 17th overall pick
The Giants are shopping Olivier Vernon and already have a need for a pass rusher.

18. Vikings: Devin Bush LB Michigan

Anthony Barr is a free agent. Bush is considered to be a short linebacker but he’s faster than some defensive backs. Coach Zimmer will find a way to utilize him.

19. Titans: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa

Need to find another target for Marcus Mariota. Hockenson is not only a great pass catcher, but he’s a good blocker too.

20. Steelers: Greedy Williams CB LSU

Former first round pick Artie Burns has been a disappointment so far. Steelers need to find someone to pair with Joe Haden.

21. Seahawks: Jachai Polite DE Florida

Seattle loves pass rushers and aren’t afraid to take chances on guys with character concerns. Polite had a really bad combine performance but that won’t scare John Schneider.

22. Ravens: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State

Baltimore needs to find a target for Lamar Jackson as they released Michael Crabtree.

23. Texans: Cody Ford OT Oklahoma

Houston had one of the worst offensive lines last season. They have to protect their greatest asset—Deshaun Watson.

24. Falcons: Rock Ya-Sin CB Temple

Atlanta is overhauling their defense and Ya-Sin would a great piece to add in the secondary. Ya-Sin has been rising up draft boards and could be the sleeper of the draft.

25. Eagles: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech

Philadelphia loves drafting lineman in the first round. They’ve been shopping Michael Bennett and Derek Barnett is coming off a season ending injury. Also, you could never have enough pass rushers.

26. Colts: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama

Marlon Mack had a solid season for Indy, but they need to find a more consistent back for Andrew Luck. Jacobs is the best running back in the draft and should fit well in Reich’s offense.

27. TRADE! Raiders – Steelers: Riley Ridley WR Georgia

Raiders receive: WR Antonio Brown – Steelers receive: 27th overall pick
The Steelers ship Antonio Brown to Oakland and draft his replacement in Ridley.

28. Chargers: Jonah Williams OG Alabama

LA couldn’t protect Philip Rivers in the playoffs, especially against the Patriots.

29. Chiefs: DeAndre Baker CB Georgia

Kansas City has a lot of holes on defense and need to find a replacement for Marcus Peters.

30. Packers: Noah Fant TE Iowa

With the second first round pick, why not help Aaron Rodgers? Jimmy Graham is getting up there in age and Fant could be a very nice piece to have in the middle of the field.

31. Rams: Greg Little OT Ole Miss

Andrew Whitworth isn’t going to be around forever and LA could use a tackle to add to the offensive line.

32. TRADE! Patriots – Cardinals: Byron Murphy CB Washington

Cardinals receive: 32nd overall pick – Patriots receive: QB Josh Rosen

Patrick Peterson almost left Arizona last season. Cardinals need to find a capable cornerback to pair alongside Peterson.
