1) Arizona Cardinals (3-13): QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma- Kliff Kingsbury is enamored with the arm and legs of the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner.  Josh Rosen will be traded and Arizona will build around Murray.

 

2) San Francisco 49ers (4-12): DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State- The 49ers are still in need of a terrific pass rushing defensive end.  Solomon Thomas has not produced yet and may be best at tackle.  Bosa is explosive and plays with terrific technique.

 

3) New York Jets (4-12): DE/OLB Josh Allen, Kentucky- The Jets have long sought a top pass rusher. Allen dominated in the SEC with his length, exceptional first step and quickness.  

 

4) Oakland Raiders (4-12): DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama- Mike Mayock adds a penetrating inside pass rusher who also defends the run.  Williams is only a redshirt sophomore and has tremendous upside.

 

5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11): DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State- The Bucs are starting just about from scratch on defense.  Sweat has explosive speed, quickness, production and played against top college competition.

 

6) New York Giants (5-11): QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State- The Giants are clearly rebuilding after the OBJ trade.  Haskins has the size and arm to play well in the Northeast when the cold weather hits. He will team with Saquon Barkley to give Big Blue a talented backfield for years to come.

 

7) Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11): OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida- The Jags have their quarterback in Nick Foles and now must protect him.  Taylor should be a day one starter at right tackle.  His run blocking prowess will help Leonard Fournette.

 

8) Detroit Lions (6-10): DE Rashan Gary, Michigan- The former Wolverine is a great athlete.  Matt Patricia is a terrific defensive coach and should be able to unlock Gary’s full production.

 

9) Buffalo Bills (6-10): OT Jonah Williams, Alabama- Josh Allen was running for his life far too often in 2018. Buffalo’s offensive line was terrible last year and needs a lot of help.  Williams has good balance and the foot quickness to stay in front of pass rushers. 

 

10) Denver Broncos (6-10): DT Ed Oliver, Houston- Oliver joins Von Miller and Bradley Chubb to give Denver a terrific pass rush.  John Elway is in win-now mode with a strong defense, running game, and a strong-armed Joe Flacco throwing deep.

 

11) Cincinnati Bengals (6-10):LB Devin White, LSU- Cincinnati needs new blood at linebacker and this Butkus Award winner would be a great start.

 

12) Green Bay Packers (6-9-1): TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa- The Packers were aggressive in free agency, but still have a big need at tight end.  Hockenson will help Green Bay in the passing and running game.

 

13) Miami Dolphins (7-9): QB Drew Lock, Missouri- There is a new regime in Miami and they have moved on from Ryan Tannehill.

 

14) Atlanta Falcons (7-9): C/G Garrett Bradbury, North Carolina State- Alex Mack is 33 and Bradbury can be his replacement.  Atlanta’s offensive line has taken a step back and Bradbury will provide competition at guard until Mack is done playing.

 

15) Washington Redskins (7-9): QB Daniel Jones, Duke- Alex Smith’s career is likely over.  Jones is similar to Smith.  They both make good decisions, are mobile and lack a strong arm.

 

16) Carolina Panthers (7-9): OT Andre Dillard, Washington State- Carolina has relied on Cam Newton’s mobility and size for too long in dealing with pass rushers.  Dillard provides an immediate upgrade at offensive tackle.

 

17) New York Giants (5-11): DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson- The Giants biggest need after quarterback is a defensive lineman that can penetrate.  Ferrell should be a good pass rusher and he also holds up well in run support.

 

18) Minnesota Vikings (8-7-1): OG /OT Cody Ford, Oklahoma- The Vikings were one of the more disappointing teams in the NFL in 2018.  An offensive line that sprung a leak was a big reason why.  Ford will help Minnesota’s run game and keep Kirk Cousins clean.

 

19) Tennessee Titans (9-7): TE Noah Fant, Iowa- Delanie Walker turns 35 before the season.  Marcus Mariota likes targeting his tight end and Fant has a lot of talent.

 

20) Pittsburgh Steelers (9-6-1): WR D.K. Metcalf, Mississippi- Antonio Brown was traded to Oakland and Metcalf is too talented to pass up.

 

21) Seattle Seahawks (10-6): DE Brian Burns, Florida State- Burns has a great burst off of the edge and would join Frank Clark to boost Seattle’s outside rush.  

 

22) Baltimore Ravens (10-6): WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma- The Ravens have a big need for playmakers at the wide receiver position to help speed Lamar Jackson’s growth.  Brown should be recovered from Lisfranc surgery by training camp.  The former Sooner has electric speed and quickness.

 

23) Houston Texans (11-5): CB Greedy Williams, LSU- Houston signed Bradley Roby to a one-year deal. However, you can never have too many cornerbacks when faced with playing against Andrew Luck twice a season.  

 

24) Oakland Raiders (4-12, via Bears): CB Deandre Baker, Georgia- Oakland adds to their secondary with an instinctive cornerback with solid technique.

 

25) Philadelphia Eagles (9-7): RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama- This is Carson Wentz’s team and the Eagles help their quarterback by adding a very talented backfield mate.

 

26) Indianapolis Colts (10-6): DT Christian Wilkens, Clemson- Indy is doing a great job with surrounding their superstar quarterback with talent.  They have built a terrific offensive line and now look to upgrade their defensive line.

 

27) Oakland Raiders (4-12, via Dallas): LB Devin Bush, Michigan- Bush can develop into a leader on the defense.  The former Wolverine's speed enables him to drop into coverage and be an effective blitzer.

 

28) Los Angeles Chargers (12-4): DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson- New England exposed the interior of LA’s defensive line.  The Chargers need to get younger, bigger, and better at defensive tackle.

 

29) Kansas City Chiefs (12-4): CB Trayvon Mullen, Clemson- KC has the offense, but need to improve on defense to finally get to the Super Bowl.  Mullen has good size and length to cover NFL receivers.  His big-game experience at Clemson is appealing to a Chiefs team that is an improved defense away from a Super Bowl appearance.

 

30) Green Bay Packers (6-9-1, via New Orleans Saints): S Johnathan Abrams, Mississippi State- Abrams is a good tackler with solid ball skills.  Green Bay continues to revamp their young secondary.

 

31) Los Angeles Rams (13-3): OL Chris Lindstrom, BC- Rodger Saffold departed via free agency.  Lindstrom is tough and physical.

 

32) New England Patriots (11-5): DT Jeffery Simmons, Mississippi State- Simmons drops this far due to a torn ACL and character concerns.  He’s a superb top 10 talent  and the Pats dynasty can be patient with him.  Simmons can be used all along the defensive line and offers the flexibility that Bill Belichick looks for.  He could be another Richard Seymour for New England.
