Round 1
Trevor LawrenceQB Clemson
The real question is how long will it take to get the pick in? Over under 8 min? Might as well get the calls done ahead of time. Trevor Lawrence is a Jag. NEXT!
Zach WilsonQB BYU
Wilson brings a tremendous skillset but I feel the Jets are making a mistake drafting him and basically throwing him out there week 1. It would be more ideal if they kept a veteran like Joe Flacco to hold the fort down a few weeks while Wilson continues to develop. He's definitely going to need polishing in his game. But hey it's New York and instant gratification is prevalent.
  49ers   f/MIA/HOU
Trey LanceQB North Dakota State
Trey Lance is as green as grass but his upside is remarkable. Is Mac Jones really that good or is he a product of a poor man's NFL team. It helps when both your WRs and RB are potential 1st round picks. I think if San Francisco sticks with Jimmy G for 1 more year, it's a perfect opportunity for John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan to sit Lance and develop his game.
Justin FieldsQB Ohio State
Atlanta may never be this high in the draft for awhile. Therefore bring back the hometown kid and what he couldn't do in Athens, he can do in Atlanta. Justin Fields returns to Georgia and is the future of the Atlanta Falcons
Penei SewellOT Oregon
All this talk about reuniting Ja'Marr Chase and Joe Burrow in Cincinnati. It makes no sense. Did anyone watch the Bengals last year and see Burrow running for his life? In many eyes, Sewell is a generational type offensive tackle even if he's coming from the Pac 12! Bengals already have Tee Higgins who had a solid rookie year along with Tyler Boyd. Good teams build from the inside out! Build the trenches and protect your franchise QB!
  Dolphins   f/PHI
Ja'Marr ChaseWR LSU
Dolphins added WR Will Fuller in free agency and still have DaVante Parker. But Fuller has his injury concerns and Parker leaves much to be desired. After trading with San Francisco and Philadelphia, and ultimately landing the 6th spot, the Miami Dolphins give QB Tua Tagovailoa a weapon in WR Ja'Marr Chase.
Jaylen WaddleWR Alabama
The Lions desperately need help at the WR position after losing both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones in free agency! After acquiring QB Jared Goff via trade with LA, the Lions have to start building around him. With only TE TJ Hockenson and WR Tyrell Williams to throw to, Goff needs another weapon that can open up the passing game. Waddle is the pick.
Rashawn SlaterOT Northwestern
Carolina did get some good value in free agency on the offensive line with the signings of Pat Elflein and Cam Erwing. But after losing Russell Okung, the Panthers need to build around QB Sam Darnold if they believe he is the guy. They better believe it! A one year rental for a 2nd round pick in 2022 is a head scratcher. Play it safe, build the trenches, draft Slater!
Kyle PittsTE Florida
I can see the Broncos trading out of this spot. But I can't do a trade so therefore, I'm going with Pitts to Denver. Noah Fant is an up and coming stud at the TE position. But Denver can establish one of the best offenses in the league with Jeudy, Sutton, Hamler, Fant and in the eyes of many, possibly the next Tony Gonzalez or Antonio Gates, Kyle Pitts!
Patrick Surtain IICB Alabama
The Cowboys continue to build their secondary. After drafting Trevon Diggs in the 2nd round last year who had a encouraging rookie season, the Cowboys proceed in drafting his Alabama teammate in CB Patrick Surtain II.
Micah ParsonsIB Penn State
The Giants worked this offseason to get some potential weapons around QB Daniel Jones in WRs Kenny Golladay and John Ross along with TE Kyle Rudolph. In addition, they also went out and signed CB Adoree' Jackson to pair up with James Bradberry. If you're a Penn State fan or a fan of the NFC East, you probably remember LB Lavar Arrington. Micah Parsons resembles Arrington in many ways. If he can stay healthy, he will be an absolute stud for years to come.
  Eagles   f/MIA/SF
DeVonta SmithWR Alabama
New Head Coach Nick Sirriani is reluctant to commit to QB Jalen Hurts. But the least he could do is give him a fair chance to show what he's got. The Delaware Valley is willing to give Hurts a fair shot this season and the best way to do that is to give him some weapons. Everyone talks about Smith's size. But you don't think he took hard hits in the SEC? This isn't something new. We know the guy is a string bean but he's also a hell of a playmaker. The fanbase is committed to Hurts for at least this year. GM Howie Roseman and Sirriani should do the same and give him a weapon. Go Birds!
Alijah Vera-TuckerOG Southern Cal
The Chargers won't have to look far for their pick. Many list Alijah Vera Tucker as a guard. He may start there, but the expectation is he will be a tackle and protect QB Justin Herbert in the long run. Chargers have their franchise QB, now they need to build the trenches and provide support.
Kwity PayeDE Michigan
With stud DE Danielle Hunter on one side, the Vikings need to establish a formidable pass rush on both ends after losing Yannick Ngaokue. Kwity Paye brings explosiveness and power off the line of scrimmage. His only knock is inexperience but he has every physical tool and trait to be an elite DE. He's got a great mentor in Hunter and both of them can wreak havoc in the NFC North for years to come.
Mac JonesQB Alabama
There's been a lot of talk about New England potentially trading up to get their guy at QB. It just might happen, but if they stay put at 15, they have a good opportunity to still land a solid prospect in Mac Jones who can sit behind Cam Newton and learn the Bill Belichick way.
Jaycee HornCB South Carolina
After making some splash moves this offseason with the acquisitions of JJ Watt and AJ Green, the Cardinals need to find a replacement for CB Patrick Peterson who is now a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Jaycee Horn, son of Joe Horn, brings physicality and toughness to the defensive backfield in the desert. He's gritty and is a solid replacement for Peterson.
Gregory RousseauDE Miami
I saw an article on PFF for the Raiders and for draft needs it said, every position on defense! Maxx Crosby is going to be a premiere DE but the Raiders need help on the other side of the D Line. Rousseau had 15.5 sacks his red-shirt freshman year. His personality makes him a Jon Gruden type of guy. With his style, Rousseau would fit perfectly in Sin City.
Jaelan PhillipsDE Miami
DE Emmanuel Ogbah had a solid 2020 season with 9 sacks. But the Dolphins could use more help up front. After drafting WR Ja'Marr Chase with their 1st pick, the Dolphins won't have to look far for their 2nd pick in the 1st round in DE Jaelan Phillips from The U!
  Football Team 
Teven JenkinsOT Oklahoma State
QB Taylor Heinicke looked all right in the playoff game against Tampa. In addition, the WFT also brought in 100 year old Ryan Fitzpatrick who can now check WFT off the list of teams he's played for. Nine to be exact! WFT COULD trade up for a QB with a higher upside. But after losing tackle Trent Williams to San Francisco, the WFT will look to rebuild the trenches and bring in his replacement in tackle Teven Jenkins.
Christian DarrisawOT Virginia Tech
The Bears are a mess on offense. Uncertainty at the QB position and a disgruntled Allen Robinson. In situations like this, the best thing to do is to start from the inside and build the trenches. Getting a wall in Darrisaw should help mitigate the issues just a bit.
Alex LeatherwoodOT Alabama
The Colts will attempt to do what the Eagles failed to do and that's build around new QB Carson Wentz the right way. With the return of WR T.Y. Hilton and 2nd year man Michael Pittman Jr, the Colts have some weapons on the outside. Keeping Wentz upright will be imperative for their success which equates to the Eagles getting a 1st round pick in 2022. Getting a tackle with tremendous upside in Leatherwood will make fans in Indy happy.
Rashod BatemanWR Minnesota
The Titans have an up and coming super star at WR with AJ Brown. However, Brown is more of a big play, stretch the field WR. They need someone who can catch passes underneath and essentially be the X receiver while Brown is the Z. Bateman's stock is rising big time and both he and Brown could establish one of the more dynamic duos at the WR position in the league.
  Jets   f/SEA
Jayson OwehDE Penn State
After securing a potential franchise QB in Zach Wilson with their first pick, the Jets now look towards improving their pass rush. Oweh didn't have the best numbers but his upside is insane and would be the perfect player for new Head Coach Robert Saleh. Saleh takes pride in his D Line and we saw just how dominating it was in San Francisco. Now he'll bring that same mentality to the Big Apple with Oweh.
Najee HarrisRB Alabama
Big Ben is on his last stand and the Steelers need more balance on offense to help him get through the season and be a contender. With James Conner no longer in Pittsburgh, the Steelers need obvious help at the RB position. Najee Harris is the definition of a Steeler RB. Big bruising very similar to Jerome Bettis. It's like the perfect match Harris and the Steel City.
  Jaguars   f/LAR
Christian BarmoreDT Alabama
After landing the Golden Goose in QB Trevor Lawrence with the 1st overall pick, the Jaguars will now look to establish one of the best D Lines in all of football and reclaim the nickname Sacksonville! Josh Allen and K'Lavon Chaisson are two up and coming studs at the DE position. But the interior is where the Jags need improvement as Taven Bryan has been disappointing so far. Getting him some help with Christian Barmore will help significantly and bolster the D Line.
Greg NewsomeCB Northwestern
Denzel Ward is one of the best CBs in the league and Troy Hill is a solid slot corner. But with the injury issues surrounding Greedy Williams on the other side, the Browns need to find a contingency plan incase Williams cannot recover. Newsome is the right choice here.
Elijah MooreWR Mississippi
Word on the street is Baltimore is strongly committed towards taking a WR. Similarly to Rashod Batemen, Elijah Moore's stock is sky rocketing. The Ravens need play makers aside from Hollywood Brown and Mark Andrews. Moore provides the big play ability which will open up the passing game for Baltimore.
Caleb FarleyCB Virginia Tech
The back surgery is concerning but Farley is too talented to pass up. He should be ready to go and has elite potential. With the guidance of Marshon Lattimore, the Saints can establish a solid duo at the CB position.
Rondale MooreWR Purdue
The Packers need considerable help opposite of Davante Adams. Marquez Valdes-Scantling shows flashes but is too inconsistent. That's basically the story of the Packers WR group aside from Adams. Flashes but no consistency. Moore is one of the best route runners coming out. He is a bit undersized at just 5'9 but has explosive speed and tremendous route integrity. With a QB like Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, it will create a quick underneath passing game which will then open up the big plays down field for the Packers.
Asante Samuel Jr.CB Florida State
Head Coach Sean McDermott knows all about the Samuels. It was not too long ago he coached Asante Samuel Sr. in Philadelphia. Now he gets the privilege to coach his son and if Jr. is anything like his father, then the Bills would have hit a home run.
  Ravens   f/KC
Trevon MoehrigFS TCU
The Ravens need to address the secondary urgently. CB Marlon Humphrey is a good player but he can't command the secondary all by himself. This would be a perfect spot to land a safety like Moehrig who can step in and establish a presence in the Ravens secondary.
Jeremiah Owusu-KoramoahOB Notre Dame
The rich get richer. The Buccs already have 2 of the best linebackers in the league with Lavonte David and Devin White. But depth is important for the defending Super Bowl Champions and Owusu will learn from 2 of the best as he brings his own talent and potential to the table.
