1. Cleveland Browns – Sam Darnold
While Josh Allen could also be drafted here, the Browns instead go for the safest quarterback prospect in the draft.
2. New York Giants – Saquon Barkley
Barkley is the best player at the biggest position of need, especially after the Giants’ brass reaffirmed their support for Eli.
3. New York Jets – Josh Rosen
One of the best pure throwers in recent years, the Jets nab their future after trading up a few picks.
4. Cleveland Browns – Minkah Fitzpatrick
The Browns are in need of a leader on the defensive side of the ball, as well as major help in the secondary.
5. Denver Broncos – Quenton Nelson
After signing Case Keenum, the Broncos address their biggest need with one of the best interior offensive line prospects in the past few years.
6. Indianapolis Colts – Bradley Chubb
Even after trading down, the Colts are still able to shore up their defense with the top pass rusher on most teams’ draft boards.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Marcus Davenport
The Buccaneers have been rumored to love Davenport’s skill set and upside, even though this seems a bit early for him.
8. Chicago Bears – Tremaine Edmunds
The Bears focused on offense in free agency and could use an athletic linebacker in the middle of the field.
9. San Francisco 49ers – Derwin James
One of the most hyped safeties in the draft, John Lynch gets a tone-setter to anchor the defense for years.
10. Oakland Raiders – Roquan Smith
The Raiders are in desperate need of an inside linebacker that can run from sideline to sideline, and Smith fits the bill perfectly.
11. Miami Dolphins – Vita Vea
After cutting Ndamukong Suh, the Dolphins decide to stick with Tannehill at quarterback and instead gain a monster in the middle.
12. Buffalo Bills – Josh Allen
In this situation, the Bills stand pat and get a high upside quarterback to groom behind recent signing AJ McCarron.
13. Washington Redskins – Derrius Guice
Although the Redskins could go in many directions here, they pick the consensus #2 running back in the draft to solidify the offense.
14. Green Bay Packers – Denzel Ward
With a seemingly constant need at cornerback, the Packers draft the most explosive and best player available.
15. Arizona Cardinals – Baker Mayfield
Even after signing Bradford to a large one year contract, the Cardinals elect to draft a young player to pair with David Johnson.
16. Baltimore Ravens – Calvin Ridley
The Ravens have been lacking at the receiver position since their 2013 Super Bowl run, and Newsome is know to like Alabama players.
17. Los Angeles Chargers – Da’Ron Payne
With a young and explosive roster on both sides of the ball, the Chargers fill one of their few holes with a top tier player.
18. Seattle Seahawks – Carlton Davis
The Seahawks do have major needs on the offensive line, but Richard Sherman’s departure leaves a hole in the secondary.
19. Dallas Cowboys – Taven Bryan
The Dez question still lingers over the Cowboys, but they need an athletic player on the interior defensive line.
20. Detroit Lions – Kerryon Johnson
The Lions haven’t had a 100 yard rusher since 2013, and are perhaps a running back away from contention.
21. Cincinnati Bengals – Will Hernandez
After trading down a few picks to solidify the left tackle position, the Bengals continue to revamp the offensive line.
22. Buffalo Bills – Courtland Sutton
As much as the Bills hated Tyrod Taylor, they can’t deny that they were lacking a true number one wideout.
23. Los Angeles Rams – Rashaan Evans
With a newly loaded secondary and the loss of Alec Ogletree, the Rams need a versatile inside linebacker like Evans.
24. Carolina Panthers – Christian Kirk
The Panther could go in many directions here, but the front office seems determined to give Cam weapons in the passing game.
25. Tennessee Titans – Harold Landry
One of the best pure pass rushers in the draft, Landry is a perfect fit to pair with Jurrell Casey off the edge.
26. Atlanta Falcons – Jesse Bates
Although sometimes forgotten, the Falcons have a top tier roster lacking only a playmaking free safety.
27. New Orleans Saints – Dallas Goedert
After striking out on bringing back Jimmy Graham, the Saints finally decide to invest in a target for their quarterback.
28. Pittsburgh Steelers – Ronnie Harrison
This pick largely depends on the situations of Bell and Shazier, but in this instance the Steelers take a talented box safety out of an elite defensive school.
29. Jacksonville Jaguars – Josey Jewell
The loss of longtime linebacker Paul Posluszny is a big hit to the defense, so the Jaguars draft a similar player to replace him.
30. Minnesota Vikings – Isaiah Wynn
The Vikings have an outstanding roster that only got better after signing Kirk Cousins, but they need to make sure he is protected.
31. New England Patriots – Mike McGlinchey
The loss of both their starting tackles hurts, but McGlinchey would do a lot in the way of helping the Patriots recover.
32. Philadelphia Eagles – Kolton Miller
The defending champions have a complete roster with very little needs, so they take their future left tackle instead of reaching on a linebacker.
