Round 1
1
  Bears   f/CAR
Caleb WilliamsQB USC
(3/10) I strongly believe JUSTIN FIELDS WILL BE TRADED for draft picks for the Bears to select with the #1 draft pick : CALEB WILLIAMS. He had a very good '23 season (QB4 in my rating system) following his Heisman trophy year. He's (almost) unanimous in mock drafts as the #1 pick which is normal given his talent. He has good combination of weight/arm/hand size. Few would say he's missing few inches (so did Bryce Young or Kyler Murray) he's slow to throw, he fumbles a lot...but he is so ahead of this year QB class. It's a No-brainer to me: he will be QB1 for the Bears and Tyson Bagent his QB2!
2
  Commanders 
Jayden DanielsQB LSU
(3/10) The commanders are in great need for a starting QB. Coach Quinn is eyeing for the next Lamar Jackson so I believe JAYDEN DANIELS is ahead of Drake Maye for their #2 draft pick. Daniels had an amazing season (obviously, winning the Heisman), he's a real dual-threat (ranked QB2 and RB10 in my rating system) and has very good size for an NFL QB. He may be missing few pounds and yes, he had only 1 good season in college at age 23 (some have concerns with that) but Commanders should feel safe with Daniels' choice as they have a reliable backup at QB2 with Sam Howell (if he stays).
3
  Patriots  
Marvin Harrison Jr.WR Ohio State
(3/10) MARVIN HARRISON JR. needs no introduction : he had two amazing seasons (ranked WR2 in '23 in my rating system), he has size, talent and NFL DNA in his blood. He is a generational talent and WILL BE DRAFTED as WR1 this year by the patriots. Why?? Mac Jones is gone ; Patriots need even more a QB1 ready for the NFL...now!! Drake Maye (next available QB in the draft) is not. Maye will need time and patience (given his age and inexperience) that's why New England will go for...JUSTIN FIELDS (giving up 1 or 2 draft picks). With this move, they fulfill their top2 team needs using only 1 pick!
4
  Cardinals  
Brian Thomas Jr.WR LSU
(3/10) Arizona WILL DRAFT A WR (#1 team need). I have BRIAN THOMAS JR. as their 4th draft pick. He ranked WR1 in my rating system this year (69 receptions, 17 TD). He has also better physical traits (ALL size, weight, arm, hand, wingspan) and speed results at the combine than Odunze or Nabers. There is less buzz around him but in my opinion, Arizona SHOULD NOT TRADE DOWN if they can't draft Marvin Harrison Jr because Brian Thomas Jr is not a lesser choice.
5
  Chargers  
Brock BowersTE Georgia
(3/10) That's a tricky one! The Chargers have many needs but most importantly CB, WR, DL, TE in that order. The 5th pick is too early to select CB1 or DL1 or TE1. Rome Odunze could be a real option but I think the Chargers will TRADE DOWN and select BROCK BOWERS. He's my best tight-end in this year draft class BY FAR. He's physical (Jim Harbaugh likes that) he is a good blocker and has really high offensive production.
6
  Giants  
Rome OdunzeWR Washington
(3/10) The Giants needs are mostly at WR and IOL (and then QB). I don't seee them selecting IOL1 that early in the draft OR trade down, that's the reason why, with the 6th pick in this year draft the Giants select ROME ODUNZE my WR3 in this draft class. He had an excellent season, he's strong, he's fast and agile (excellent combine) and will have immediate impact on the team.
7
  Titans  
Joe AltOT Notre Dame
(3/10) Tennessee #1 team need is at OT position (and preferably LT). That's why the Titans will select the #1 Left tackle in this draft with JOE ALT. The OT class this year is very talented but Alt has better overall size (hands, arm, height, weight) than Fuaga or Fashanu. Alt had a better combine overall (better agility and speed results, little behind when testing explosiveness). He had a solid season (90,7 grade on PFF, allowing just 1 sack). Also, his dad being a former NFL player, will for sure, help his draft stock.
8
  Falcons  
Drake MayeQB North Carolina
(3/10) Unless they go for Kirk Cousins or another experienced QB, I believe the ATLANTA FALCONS WILL TRADE UP (most likely with the Chargers) in order to select with their 1st round pick DRAKE MAYE, their future QB1 for years to come. Maye is young and raw (only 2 college seasons), but he showed great potentiel, with very good stats. Aside from Carolina, Atlanta is also the closest to his hometown. Definitely a plus for him and the Maye family.
9
  Bears  
Malik NabersWR LSU
(3/10) Chicago could be tempted to select IOL1 (team #1 need) but it would be too early in the draft, with the 9th pick. They will either trade trade (option #2) OR select in this draft with MALIK NABERS who just had a breakout season with LSU. He may be lacking size, he's still WR4 on my list. That would give right away a good weapon for Caleb Williams (selected first in this draft)
10
  Jets  
Olumuyiwa FashanuOT Penn State
(3/10) Given the injury, the age of Aaron Rodgers (and the Jets' last season performance), the New York Jets will select with their first draft pick an OT, and OLU FASHANU best fits this need being a left tackle. He had an excellent '23 season (78,8 grade on PFF no sacks allowed). Fuaga could have been also be a great choice (they both have similar speed and explosiveness) but the Jets need, in my opinion rather a left, than a right tackle.
