Round 1
1
  Browns  
Sam DarnoldQB Southern Cal
There seems to be a growing consensus that Darnold will be the top pick. The Browns should pull the trigger as either the top RB or DB should be there at 4. This will also be a great spot for Darnold who won't be rushed onto the field after the Browns acquired Tyrod Taylor.
2
  Giants  
Bradley ChubbDE North Carolina State
The trade of JPP to the Bucs opens the door for the Giants to draft Chubb if they don't trade back. Gettleman loves to build at the line of scrimmage first.
3
  Jets   f/IND
Baker MayfieldQB Oklahoma
Mayfield seems to be rising because of his leadership and accuracy. He has the personality to handle NY giving him a chance to finally become a long-term solution at QB for the Jets.
4
  Browns   f/HOU
Saquon BarkleyRB Penn State
With Chubb off the board, this pick should become pretty easy. Barkley is a special talent at RB.
5
  Broncos  
Josh RosenQB UCLA
Case Keenum isn't the long-term answer and shouldn't prevent the Broncos from drafting a QB is one of the top guys they like is available. Elway is enough of a force to handle any perceived issues with Rosen's personality.
6
  Colts   f/NYJ
Denzel WardCB Ohio State
Ward is the best cover corner in the draft and the Colts had good luck plucking a guy from OSU's secondary last year with Malik Hooker.
7
  Buccaneers  
Derwin JamesSS Florida State
James to Tampa seems to be almost a forgone conclusion.
8
  Bears  
Quenton NelsonOG Notre Dame
Grabbing a dominant guard who could start for a decade will only help their Trubisky and Jordan Howard.
9
  49ers  
Roquan SmithIB Georgia
With Foster facing legal issues it looks like the 49ers need a new ILB. Smith has sideline to sideline speed and should be a force at the next level.
10
  Raiders  
Minkah FitzpatrickCB Alabama
This pick might surprise some, but the Raiders need playmakers in the secondary and leaders on the defense. Saban raved about Fitzpatrick's intelligence and leadership.
11
  Dolphins  
Tremaine EdmundsOB Virginia Tech
Edmunds may not have a set position yet, which gives him some bust potential but he also could develop into a dominant linebacker making him worth the risk here.
12
  Bills   f/BUF
Josh AllenQB Wyoming
Allen has the arm to succeed in Buffalo and if he's still here at this pick, it should be a no brainer.
13
  Redskins  
Vita VeaDT Washington
Winning starts in the trenches, so the Redskins add another piece to their defensive line.
14
  Packers  
Calvin RidleyWR Alabama
It seemed like the Packers wanted to be in on the conversation of every WR, so why not take the best in the draft. I think the NFL is higher on Ridley than the media is.
15
  Cardinals  
Jaire AlexanderCB Louisville
Alexander is confident, but injuries held him back this year. With Ridley and all the top QBs gone, the Cardinals can finally find a permanent solution across from Peterson.
16
  Ravens  
Mike McGlincheyOT Notre Dame
The Ravens need a new RT and thats where McGlinchey projects to be best. He seems to be the safest OT in the draft.
17
  Chargers  
Rashaan EvansOB Alabama
The Chargers need reinforcements for the second level of their defense. Evans is a solid sideline to sideline linebacker who should transition to the NFL quickly.
18
  Seahawks  
Josh JacksonCB Iowa
Seattle needs to restock their secondary. Jackson isn't the fastest, but he has great ball skills.
19
  Cowboys  
Marcus DavenportDE Texas-San Antonio
I think Davenport ends up being better with his hand in the dirt, which makes a 4-3 a better fit. Dallas could use another pass rusher.
20
  Lions  
Da'Ron PayneDT Alabama
Payne can hold his own against the run and collapse the pocket from inside which is something every team can use.
21
  Bengals   f/CIN
James DanielsOC Iowa
Bodine is gone so the Bengals need a new C. Daniels is the best in the class and it helps Iowa offensive lineman tend to be successful in the NFL.
22
  Bills   f/KC
DJ MooreWR Maryland
DJ Moore has been rising through the pre-draft process. Buffalo needs to get their new QB a new weapon opposite Kelvin Benjamin allowing Zay Jones to play in the slot.
23
  Patriots   f/LAR
Kolton MillerOT UCLA
Miller seems similar in stature to Nate Solder who left for the Giants in free agency.
24
  Panthers  
Justin ReidSS Stanford
The Panthers could use an upgrade at safety and I think Reid surprises people by going in the 1st round.
25
  Titans  
Harold LandryOB Boston College
Landry just seems like the type of pass rusher that does well in Tennessee.
26
  Falcons  
Will HernandezOG UTEP
This is a good value for Hernandez who should upgrade RG for the Falcons from Day 1.
27
  Saints  
Hayden HurstTE South Carolina
Getting Brees a reliable TE will make this offense even scarier. Hurst isn't the most talented TE in the draft, but he's more polished and already knows what it takes to play pro sports having played minor league baseball.
28
  Steelers  
Leighton Vander EschOB Boise State
Hopefully one day Shazier can come back, in the meantime Vander Esch can help and ultimately should be able to play with Shazier too.
29
  Jaguars  
Connor WilliamsOT Texas
Williams could settle in at T or G, but either way reinforcing the offensive line is crucial for how the Jags want to play.
30
  Vikings  
Mike HughesCB Central Florida
Hughes is a great value at this point and the Vikings will ultimately need depth at CB or even an upgrade opposite Rhodes.
31
  Patriots  
Mason RudolphQB Oklahoma State
Belichick will get his QB of the future after the Jimmy G trade. Rudolph fits better than Jackson and taking him in round 1 gives the Pats the 5th year option.
32
  Eagles  
Taven BryanDT Florida
This is all about value. Bryan is a top talent, but needs a lot of work to reach that potential.
Round 2
33
  Browns  
Donte JacksonCB LSU
I'm not sold on Jackson, but he is fast and everyone else seems to like him and you can't teach speed.
34
  Giants  
Billy PriceOC Ohio State
The Giants need help pretty much everywhere but LT. Price would likely be a solid first rounder if not for torn pecs this offseason.
35
  Browns   f/HOU
Geron ChristianOT Louisville
Joe Thomas retired so the Browns will need to find a new LT. Christian needs polish, but has the ability to play early in his career.
36
  Colts  
Lamar JacksonQB Louisville
I can't predict a trade, but I'm thinking someone trades up into the early 2nd round to draft Jackson if he falls.
37
  Colts   f/NYJ
Derrius GuiceRB LSU
Marlon Mack doesn't seem like the long-term answer at RB. Guice is a more complete RB and should be the future in Indy.
38
  Buccaneers  
Sony MichelRB Georgia
We have a mini run on RBs. Muscle Hamster is gone and there isn't a complete back on the roster. Michel is big and versatile enough to handle a full workload.
39
  Bears  
Uchenna NwosuOB Southern Cal
Nwosu came on late for USC and could be a good fit opposite Leonard Floyd.
40
  Broncos  
Frank RagnowOC Arkansas
Whether he plays C or G, he should upgrade the Broncos line quickly.
41
  Raiders  
Ronald JonesRB Southern Cal
Marshawn Lynch is still there, but Jones represents a change of pace back in Year 1 and potential full-time starter after that.
42
  Dolphins  
Mike GesickiTE Penn State
Gesicki blew up at the combine and could be a matchup player in the passing game. He may not offer much as a blocker though and needs to work on his route running to become a more complete player.
43
  Patriots   f/SF
Maurice HurstDT Michigan
At some point teams will ignore the medical and take a chance on talent. The Pats seem like a good bet to take a chance on talent.
44
  Redskins  
Austin CorbettOG Nevada
Corbett should help solidify the interior of the offensive line.
45
  Packers  
Lorenzo CarterOB Georgia
Carter was never asked to rush the passer full-time which depressed his rushing numbers. If unleashed he could be a good pass rusher, but he offers a ton of versatility after being asked to drop into coverage a lot in UGA's defense.
46
  Bengals  
Sam HubbardDE Ohio State
Hubbard isn't the most athletic guy, but doesn't quit on plays and has solid technique to make him successful.
47
  Cardinals  
Courtland SuttonWR SMU
Sutton is talent but needs work. Learning from Fitz would be a great opportunity.
48
  Chargers  
Ronnie HarrisonFS Alabama
The Chargers could use an upgrade at safety. Some seem to think Harrison could sneak into round 1.
49
  Colts   f/NYJ/SEA
Brian O'NeillOT Pittsburgh
I think this is a reach, but the Colts still need help and OTs tend to get over drafted.
50
  Cowboys  
Isaiah WynnOG Georgia
There seem to be some medical flags popping up with Wynn, but that didn't stop him from playing well for UGA. He should be able to win a job as a G quickly, and could even get a look at OT if needed.
51
  Lions  
Nick ChubbRB Georgia
The 2nd straight UGA guy! Chubb seemed healthier last year than his junior year, which should bring his stock back up some. Blount isn't a long-term answer and Chubb will probably win the job quickly.
52
  Ravens  
Dallas GoedertTE South Dakota State
Goedert has talent, but needs to adjust to competition. The Ravens need a TE after letting Ben Watson leave.
53
  Bills  
Isaiah OliverCB Colorado
White was great at CB as a rookie, but he could use another guy across from him to solidify the secondary.
54
  Chiefs  
Jessie Bates IIISS Wake Forest
This is another value pick as Bates is likely the 2nd best SS in the draft behind Derwin James.
55
  Panthers  
DJ CharkWR LSU
Chark has plenty of speed and the Panthers offense was better when they had a consistent deep threat.
56
  Bills   f/LAR
Martinas RankinOT Mississippi State
Cordy Glenn is gone, so the Bills need offensive line help.
57
  Titans  
Darius LeonardIB South Carolina State
Leonard seems to be moving up draft boards as a sideline to sideline inside backer.
58
  Falcons  
Christian KirkWR Texas A&M
Kirk can start in the slot and ultimately take over for Sanu. This pick becomes more likely if there is something to the Julio Jones rumors.
59
  49ers   f/NO
Braden SmithOG Auburn
Smith should be a solid G early in his career so this is a good value for him.
60
  Steelers  
James WashingtonWR Oklahoma State
Washington is best used as a deep threat, which is the role Martavis Bryant used to fill.
61
  Jaguars  
Oren BurksIB Vanderbilt
Paul P. retired so ILB is now a need. Burks fits in todays NFL well and should slide right into the vacated spot.
62
  Vikings  
Rasheem GreenDT Southern Cal
Green can play outside and move inside on passing downs making him a good rotational player for the Vikings defense early in his career.
63
  Patriots  
Arden KeyDE LSU
Another talented player with questions snatched up by the Pats. Key is the best pure pass rusher in the draft, but slides due to questions about his commitment and off-field behavior.
64
  Browns   f/PHI
BJ HillDT North Carolina State
Hill was overshadowed by Bradley Chubb, but is a good player in his own right. The Browns also traded away Shelton this offseason.
