- CIN: QB Joe Burrow LSU
- WSH: Edge Chase Young Ohio State
- DET: CB Jeffrey Okudah Ohio State
The Lions HAVE to upgrade this defense and Okudah is a top 5 player overall in this draft class. Lions get their perfect replacement for Darius Slay in the secondary.
- NYG: OT Jedrick Wills Alabama
It’s down between Wills and Wirfs. New HC Joe Judge knows Alabama very well after working under Nick Saban down there and with a huge need at RT, Wills will step in right away day one and be an impact player. Giants HAVE to protect their investments in RB Saquon Barkley and QB Daniel Jones.
- MIA: QB Tua Tagovailoa Alabama
#TankForTua becomes a reality here at pick #5. Tua will be the long term answer for Miami at the QB positon on and off the field especially with his leadership ability; the locker room will rally around Tua.
- LAC: Justin Herbert Oregon
Chargers replace QB Phillip Rivers with a young Justin Herbert but now they have to protect him. Hopefully the Chargers can grab a LT on day two.
- CAR: LB Isaiah Simmons Clemson
It should be a toss-up between Simmons and Derrick Brown but don’t count out Javon Kinlaw. New HC Matt Rhule wants a true leader with some serious speed on his defense as he begins his tenure in Carolina.
- ARI: DT Derrick Brown Auburn
I believe the Cardinals should protect QB Kyler Murray and grab an OT but it’s hard to pass up the talent in Auburn’s DT Derrick Brown. Interior Defensive Line help is also a huge need for Arizona.
- JAX: DT Javon Kinlaw South Carolina
The Jags could grab their Jalen Ramsey replacement with CJ Henderson but last season the Jaguars were bottom 3 vs the run and with the addition of Javon Kinlaw that will improve tremendously.
- CLE: OT Tristian Wirfs Iowa
- NYJ: OT Andrew Thomas Georgia
It’s Simple both the Browns and Jets have to protect their young QB’s.
- LV: QB Jordan Love Utah State
HC Jon Gruden finally gets his young QB he can develop for the future. This would definitely shock a lot of people but should we expect anything less from Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden?
- SF: WR Henry Ruggs III Alabama
The Niners can’t go wrong with selecting either receiver, it’s clear the team has a need on the outside. I believe HC Kyle Shanahan will learn from his mistakes and after being beat by the Chiefs in the SuperBowl mainly due to speed San Francisco gets their speedster in Ruggs here at #13.
- TB: OT Mekhi Becton Louisville
QB Tom Brady and TE Gronk have invaded Tampa Bay and now it’s time to sure up the offensive line. The Bucs get their mountain of a man on the right side in Mekhi Becton.
- DEN: WR CeeDee Lamb Oklahoma
- ATL: CB CJ Henderson Florida
- DAL: Edge K’Lavon Chaisson LSU
- MIA: OT Josh Jones Houston
Miami got their guy in QB Tua, now it’s time to protect him with picking at least 1 offensive linemen with either their #18 or #26 pick in the first round.
- LV: WR Jerry Jeudy Alabama
Dream Scenario for the Raiders after grabbing their QB of the future at #12 and now they get their #1 WR of the future here with Jerry Jeudy.
- JAX: CB AJ Terrell Clemson
- PHI: WR Justin Jefferson LSU
- MIN: OT Erza Cleveland Boise State
No question the Vikings have to upgrade their defense but if the Vikings want to continue to have success running the ball with RB Dalvin Cook, Minnesota has to add more talent to their offensive line.
- NE: Edge AJ Epenesa Iowa
Keep an eye out for TE Cole Kmet here at #23 but right now the Patriots have many holes on both sides of the ball. I have the team selecting a talented defensive lineman who won’t jump off the board with his athleticism but plays his role well and that’s exactly what Bill looks for in his team.
- NO: LB Patrick Queen LSU
- MIN: CB Jeff Gladney TCU
Minnesota has a huge need at WR to pair alongside Adam Thielen but with this WR draft class the Vikings can pick a couple in the later rounds. I love 2 corners for the Vikings Jeff Gladney and Auburn’s Noah Igbinoghene. I don’t believe Noah will be selected in the first round but both guys are really physical and have great length to play on the outside and that’s exactly what HC Mike Zimmer looks for in his CB’s.
- MIA: S Xavier McKinney Alabama
- SEA: OL Cesar Ruiz Michigan
- BAL: LB Kenneth Murray Oklahoma
- TEN: OT Isaiah Wilson Georgia
- GB: WR Brandon Aiyuk Arizona State
Jalen Reagor is also an option here at #30 but Brandon Aiyuk could be a game changer with the ball in his hands and also adds great returning ability which is another thing the Packers are looking to add in the draft.
- SF: CB Trevon Diggs Alabama
- KC: CB Kristian Fulton LSU
