Pick
1
Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals
Kyler Murray
Oklahoma · QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury gets the quarterback to lead his Air Raid offense.

Pick
2
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers
Nick Bosa
Ohio State · DE

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

The 49ers get a bookend to pair with Dee Ford, giving them a legitimate pass rush.

Pick
3
New York Jets
New York Jets
Josh Allen
Wyoming · QB

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior

The Jets need a pass rusher, but I wouldn't be surprised if they traded out of this pick.

Pick
4
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
Rashan Gary
Michigan · DE

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

The Raiders' only chance to get a premier edge rusher is here, not in the 20s.

Pick
5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Devin White
LSU · LB

School: LSU | Year: Junior

He's an instinctive football player who can make plays from sideline to sideline.

Pick
6
New York Giants
New York Giants
Quinnen Williams
Alabama · DT


School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Giants GM Dave Gettleman stays true to his draft board and takes the best player available.

Pick
7
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jawaan Taylor
Florida · T

School: Florida | Year: Junior

The Jaguars want to be physical up front and run the ball, and Taylor allows them to do that. Look for them to address their tight end need later in the draft.

Pick
8
Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers
Montez Sweat
Mississippi State · EDGE


School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH LIONS.** The pass rushers are flying off the board, and the Panthers need one.

Pick
9
Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills
Andre Dillard
Washington State · T

School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS)

If I were the Bills, I'd move Dion Dawkins to right tackle and slide Dillard -- the best pass blocker in the draft -- in at left tackle.

Pick
10
Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos
T.J. Hockenson
Iowa · TE


School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Joe Flacco loves throwing to tight ends, but I could also see the Broncos taking a quarterback here.

Pick
11
Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals
Devin Bush
Michigan · LB


School: Michigan | Year: Junior

Bengals fill a major need on defense with the athletic Bush.

Pick
12
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
Cody Ford
Oklahoma · G

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

The Packers need an upgrade at right tackle.

Pick
13
New York Giants
New York Giants
Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State · QB


School: Ohio State | Year: Sophomore (RS)

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH DOLPHINS.** The Giants jump ahead of the Redskins to get Eli Manning's successor.

Pick
14
Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons
2020 · 4-12-0
Ed Oliver
Houston · DT

School: Houston | Year: Junior

Pass-rushing defensive tackles are a major priority for the Falcons.

Pick
15
Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team
Clelin Ferrell
Clemson · DE

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)

The Redskins have been looking for a pass rusher to play opposite Ryan Kerrigan for years.

Pick
16
Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions
Deandre Baker
Georgia · CB


School: Georgia | Year: Senior

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH PANTHERS.** The Lions fill their biggest need and pick up some extra draft capital in the process.

Pick
17
Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
Christian Wilkins
Clemson · DT


School: Clemson | Year: Senior

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH GIANTS.** Wilkins gives the Dolphins a playmaker on the inside of their defense.

Pick
18
Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings
Jonah Williams
Alabama · OT


School: Alabama | Year: Junior

The Vikings address one of their most glaring weaknesses by picking Williams, who can play left tackle or left guard.

Pick
19
Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans
DK Metcalf
Mississippi · WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Sophomore (RS)

The Titans' offense has a lot of pieces, but it's still lacking a true speed receiver on the perimeter -- Metcalf would give them that. They also need to address the interior O-line, but I think they can do that in Round 2.

Pick
20
Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers
Byron Murphy
Washington · CB

School: Washington | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Murphy is an excellent technician at the position, helping to bolster the Steelers' secondary.

Pick
21
Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks
Brian Burns
Florida State · EDGE

School: Florida State | Year: Junior

The Seahawks add a pass rusher opposite Frank Clark, who's currently set to play the 2019 season on the franchise tag.

Pick
22
Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles
Greg Little
Mississippi · T


School: Mississippi | Year: Junior

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH RAVENS.** The foundation of the 

Eagles recent success has been the strength of their O-line, so adding a quality player here helps now and for the future.

Pick
23
Houston Texans
Houston Texans
Rock Ya-Sin
Temple · CB

School: Temple | Year: Senior

The Texans lose out on an offensive lineman with the Eagles' savvy trade, but rebound by selecting Ya-Sin to fill a need at CB.

Pick
24
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
Irv Smith
Alabama · TE


School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Irv Smith with Derek Carr! The Raiders have made a lot of moves this offseason to become a better football team.

Pick
25
Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens
Marquise Brown
Oklahoma · WR


School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior

**PROJECTED TRADE WITH EAGLES.** 

Ravens grab a WR who can stretch the defense and play in the slot.

Pick
26
Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts
A.J. Brown
Mississippi · WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Junior

Brown will fill the slot for the Colts, but he can also play outside, too.

Pick
27

The Raiders continue to re-build their defensive line by taking the third Clemson Tiger in Round 1.

Pick
29
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs
Garrett Bradbury
N.C. State · C

School: N.C. State | Year: Senior (RS)

The top defensive players are gone, so the Chiefs upgrade their O-line.

Pick
30
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
Taylor Rapp
Washington · S


School: Washington | Year: Junior

Safety was a major problem for the
Packers last year, but Rapp and free-agent pickup
Adrian Amos are the solution.

Pick
31
Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams
Jerry Tillery
Notre Dame · DT


School: Notre Dame | Year: Senior

The
Rams take the best defensive lineman prospect left on the board.
Michael Brockers can shift inside to play nose tackle, while Tillery lines up at the defensive end.

Pick
32

Drew Lock

School: Missouri | Year: Senior

Tom Brady can play until he is 45 and then Lock will take over!
