1ClevelandSam DarnoldQBUSCBrowns are tempted with Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield, but go with the safer pick
3
2NY GiantsBradley ChubbDENC State
Long rumored spot for SBarkley; I can already hear boos if Barkley is not selected. Best defensive lineman in draft who can replace JPierre-Paul. Can find a RB in rd 2.
4
3NY JetsBaker MayfieldQB OklahomaNeeds time, but can learn this season from JMcCown until ready
5
4Buffalo (from CLE)Josh AllenQBWyomingEntirely dependent on what Giants do at 2. If Giants grab SBarkley, Browns stay at 4 and pick BChubb.
6
5DenverJosh RosenQBUCLAGuessing JElway likes JRosen's cerebral approach to the game. Denver could move back.
7
6IndianapolisSaquon BarkleyRBPenn StateAnother trade back candidate, depending on how the QBs are going. Barkley would fit in well in Indy with ALuck.
8
7Tampa BayMinkah FitzpatrickDBAlabamaCan play either corner or safety. Might be DJames.
9
8ChicagoQuenton NelsonGNotre DameIf Nelson lasts this long, Bears snag him & reunite him with former OL coach HHiestand.
10
9San FranciscoRoquan SmithLBGeorgiaPlays sideline to sideline, + the news on RFoster has to have the 49ers concerned. Maybe TEdwards also for LB.
11
10OaklandDerwin JamesSFlorida StateAthletic safety to help solidify Oakland's secondary. Could go to TB at 7. DWard might go here
12
11MiamiTremaine EdwardsLBVirginia TechRumored to want a QB, but Dolphins take a versatile LB who can make an immediate impact. Maybe VVea instead for interior DL help.
13
12Cleveland (from BUF)Denzel WardCBOhio StateEmphasize how everything depends on Giants at 2. Browns need a LT to replace JThomas, but Ward is a terrific CB
14
13WashingtonVita VeaDTWashingtonCould pair nicely with last year's selection of Jonathan Allen. Redskins need to improve their run defense.
15
14Green BayHarold LandryDE/OLBBoston CollegeInjuries hurt him in 2017, but very good pass rusher.
16
15ArizonaLamar JacksonQBLouisvilleRumored to be moving up for a QB, but could possibly sit tight and get the QB former coach BArians has endorsed.
17
16BaltimoreCalvin RidleyWRAlabamaSolid, dependable, wide receiver in Ozzie Newsome's last draft as GM of Ravens.
18
17LA ChargersRashaan EvansLBAlabamaThis could be an OL pick, such as MMcGlinchey, or a DB, but I went with a consistent, dependable LB.
19
18SeattleMarcus DavenportDEUTSASeahawks are tempted to go with DGuice, but focus on pass rusher with the pick. Another trade back possibility, as SEA has no 2nd or 3rd round picks.
20
19Dallas
Leighton Vander Esch
LBBoise StateWR is tempting, but Cowboys wait until later, focus on defense with their first pick. BPolian ripped this pick on ESPN's NFL Nation Mock Draft
21
20DetroitDa'Ron PayneDLAlabamaLions help their run defense with Payne, who can also generate interior pass rush.
22
21CincinnatiWill HernandezGUTEPBengals will try to solidify their OL. Pick could have been BPrice of Ohio State, barring Price's injury at the NFL Combine.
23
22Cleveland (from BUF)Mike McGlincheyOTNotre DameBrowns grab an OT to try and fix their left side with the retirement of JThomas. McGlinchey is better at RT than LT.
24
23
New England (from LA Rams)
Jaire AlexanderCBLouisville
Rumors abound with NE, but Belichick takes a solid CB who can come in and immediately contribute. Alexander can help with special teams as a returner also.
25
24CarolinaJustin ReidSStanfordSecondary help for the Panthers. Might go TE or OL here instead.
26
25TennesseeJames DanielsCIowaHelps solidify the Titans' OL. Can play either guard or center. Might be BPrice of Ohio State also.
27
26AtlantaTaven BryanDLFloridaSolid DL for the Falcons. Would love it if DPayne fell this far to them.
28
27New OrleansHayden HurstTESouth CarolinaAnother offensive weapon for Drew Brees. Will the Saints grab a QB like MRudolph here?
29
28PittsburghRonnie HarrisonSAlabamaPittsburgh could use secondary help, and would love it if JReid is still on the board here.
30
29JacksonvilleMike GesickiTEPenn StateAthletic TE to help diversify Jags' offense; help for BBortles. Not much of a blocker, but match-up problem as a receiving option.
31
30MinnesotaIsaiah PeadGGeorgiaSolid OL pick for a Vikings team that wants to protect their investment in KCousins. Might be BPrice of Ohio State instead.
32
31New England Kolton MillerOTUCLANeed a replacement for NSolder, and Miller fills a need. Could go at 23 instead. May be CWilliams of Texas instead.
33
32PhiladelphiaDerrius GuiceRBLSUThis pick could be swapped to CLE or another team, looking to move back into the late 1st; PHL has no 2nd or 3rd rd picks. Guice replaces LBlount
