1. Jacksonville Jaguars
Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson
Is there any doubt?
Is there any doubt…? part 2.
With Jimmy in place, the 49ers can afford to go with the high ceiling prospect who has history with head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Andy Dalton isn’t the long-term answer, so they’ll have to make an aggressive move from the 19th spot to get their long-term answer at quarterback.
Bill has gone full YOLO mode this year, so I expect some type of trade-up for an elite receiver.
6. Miami Dolphins
Penei Sewell – OT – Oregon
Sewell is a generational offensive tackle talent and the Dolphins need to protect Tua.
7. Detroit Lions
Jaylen Waddle – WR – Alabama
The Lions lost Golladay and Jones, but getting Waddle will help fill that void.
8. Carolina Panthers
Kyle Pitts – TE – Florida
Panthers have some offensive line issues, but Pitts is too good to pass up.
9. Denver Broncos
Micah Parsons – LB – Penn State
Broncos have a need at linebacker and I figure they’ll roll the dice one more year with Lock so no Jones here.
10. Dallas Cowboys
Patrick Surtain Jr – CB – Alabama
An Alabama corner to the Cowboys… never been more certain about any pick in my life.
Steelers need a quarterback for the future and Mac Jones is just hanging out on the board. This trade is worth it for the Steelers.
12. Philadelphia Eagles (from San Francisco 49ers)
Rashawn Slater – OT – Northwestern
The Eagles need offensive line help and Slater is arguably the best player on the board here, even they can’t screw this one up (although they probably will).
Herbert needs a left tackle for the future and Jenkins is just the freak athlete they need.
14. Minnesota Vikings
Christian Barmore – IDL – Alabama
Mike Zimmer slams his fist on the table for a big boy inside, something they desperately need.
15. Cincinnati Bengals (from New England Patriots)
Devonta Smith- WR – Alabama
Trading down and getting Smith is almost too good to be true, and knowing Cincy’s front office, this probably won’t happen.
16. Arizona Cardinals
Jaycee Horn – CB – South Carolina
This will be one of those picks everyone forgets about for 2-3 years until Horn becomes a very good starter.
Raiders love going with great athletes and JOK fits that mold and could be the guy to cover Kelce and Fant for years to come.
Titans trade up for an Ole Miss receiver to pair with their own Ole Miss receiver; Moore is a perfect fit here.
19. Washington Football Team
Rashod Bateman – WR – Minnesota
WFT is slowly building a monster and Bateman gives them a strong 3-receiver punch that improves their offense.
20. Atlanta Falcons (from Chicago Bears)
Jayson Oweh – ED – Penn State
Oweh is a freaky athlete and the Falcons will fall for the trap of getting another defensive end in the first round… maybe this time it pays off.
Saints trade up with the Colts to take a stud receiver in Marshall, who will play close to home.
22. Miami Dolphins (from Tennessee Titans)
Travis Etienne – RB – Clemson
There’s always that one head scratcher of a move… Dolphins reaching for a running back is that move.
Jets need a cornerback and some attitude on defense; Farley gives you both.
24. New York Giants (from Pittsburgh Steelers)
Greg Newsome II – CB – Northwestern
The Giants played a lot of zone last year and Newsome is a great zone cornerback. They could use a good complimentary CB to Bradberry.
25. Jacksonville Jaguars
Asante Samuel Jr – CB – Florida State
Jaguars take Samuel as they look to rebuild their putrid defense.
26. Cleveland Browns
Kwity Paye – ED – Michigan
The Browns defensive front is carried by Myles Garrett, so finding someone to help him is crucial.
27. Baltimore Ravens
Azeez Ojulari – ED – Georgia
The Ravens are surprisingly weak up front as they’re carried by old man Calais Campbell; they need new fresh blood.
28. Indianapolis Colts (from New Orleans Saints)
Christian Darrisaw – OT – Virginia Tech
Darrisaw is a beast and has plenty of experience at left tackle, which is big area of need for the Colts. With a strong unit in place and good coaching, Darrisaw can be an impactful day 1 starter and have a nice career next to Quenton Nelson. The Colts trading down to pick up an extra two picks and getting Darrisaw is a massive win that we’ve grown to see with Ballard.
29. Green Bay Packers
Kadarius Toney – WR – Florida
Packers can’t piss off Rodgers two years in a row, can they? I say no, so I think they’ll go Toney who is a versatile receiver who fits well in the Packers’ offense.
30. Buffalo Bills
Jaelen Phillips – ED – Miami
Bills could use more athleticism up front and Phillips is one of the most underrated defensive players in the draft.
31. Kansas City Chiefs
Dillon Radunz – OT – NDSU
Chiefs dumped their two offensive tackles, so their offensive line rebuild starts with Radunz, a beast from the FCS.
32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gregory Rousseau – ED – Miami
Rousseau’s draft stock has fallen over the last year, but he’ll be in a perfect situation in Tampa, where he can thrive and reach a very high level.
