1. Cleveland Browns-Josh Rosen-Quarterback-UCLA

The quarterback needy Browns are hoping the Josh Rosen can be their savior.

Saquon Barkley

4. Cleveland Browns (via Houston Texans)-Saquon Barkley-Running Back-Penn State

Saquon Barkley could be the best running back for the Browns since Earnest Byner.

5. Denver Broncos-Quenton Nelson-Guard-Notre Dame

Unless the Broncos move up to select a quarterback, they will take the best player available.

6. Indianapolis Colts-Courtland Sutton-Wide Receiver-SMU

If the Colts want to get the best out of quarterback Andrew Luck, they need to give him quality players to throw the football to.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Derrius Guice-Running Back-LSU

The Bucs were 27th in the National Football League in rushing last season as their offense needs more balance.

8. Chicago Bears-Derwin James-Strong Safety-Florida State

The Bears get a steal here as Derwin James will be the best athlete in this year’s draft.

Minkah Fitzpatrick

9. San Francisco 49ers-Minkah Fitzpatrick-Free Safety-Alabama

When John Lynch won a Super Bowl as a player with the Bucs, he played on a defense who’s strength was right up the middle. And now as the general manager of the Niners, Lynch is building this defense in the same mode.

10. Oakland Raiders-Roquan Smith-Middle Linebacker-Georgia

The Raiders have talent on their defense, but they need a leader which they’ll get in Roquan Smith.

11. Miami Dolphins-Maurice Hurst-Defensive Tackle-Michigan

The Dolphins recently released defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh which leaves a huge hole there.

12. Buffalo Bills (via Cincinnati Bengals)-Josh Allen-Quarterback-Wyoming

The Bills could be tempted to trade up again, but they will find what they are hopeful will be their franchise quarterback.

13. Washington Redskins-James Washington-Wide Receiver-Oklahoma State

The Redskins just got themselves a new quarterback in Alex Smith and it only makes sense to get him some help at wide receiver.

14. Green Bay Packers-Josh Jackson-Cornerback-Iowa

The Packers defense is in the midst of an overhaul and it’s time to improve the secondary.

15. Arizona Cardinals-Mason Rudolph-Quarterback-Oklahoma State

Unless the Cardinals are willing to move up, they will miss out on the high-profile quarterbacks in this draft.

16. Baltimore Ravens-Vita Vea-Defensive Tackle-Washington

The Ravens will find their best interior defensive lineman since Haloti Ngata.

17. Los Angeles Chargers-Isaiah Wynn-Offensive Tackle-Georgia

The Chargers will find one of the most interchangeable linemen in this year’s draft.

18. Seattle Seahawks-Jaire Alexander-Cornerback-Louisville

The Seahawks recently cut cornerback Richard Sherman which makes this selection a no-brainer.

19. Dallas Cowboys-Denzel Ward-Cornerback-Ohio State

For the past few years the Cowboys secondary has been nothing short of a hot mess as the defensive side of the football will be their focus in this year’s draft.

20. Detroit Lions-Marcus Davenport-Defensive End-UTSA

The Lions recently re-signed Ziggy Ansah, but they need a bookend defensive end to offset him.

21. Cincinnati Bengals (via Buffalo Bills)-Da’Ron Payne-Defensive Tackle-Alabama

When the Bengals are at their best, it is when their defensive front four is wreaking havoc. And Da’Ron Payne is a stud.

22. Buffalo Bills (via Kansas City Chiefs)-Kolton Miller-Offensive Tackle-UCLA

If the Buffalo Bills are going to select a quarterback, then they need to find players that will protect him.

23. Los Angeles Rams-Leighton Vander Esch-Outside Linebacker-Boise State

The rich get richer here as the Rams will get one the best defenders available in this year’s draft.

24. Carolina Panthers-Will Hernandez-Guard-UTEP

Make no mistake about it that the Panthers love to run the football which means that they’ll be adding another big ugly here.

25. Tennessee Titans-Ogbonnia Okoronkwo-Defensive End-Oklahoma

New Titans head coach Mike Vrabel wouldn’t mind getting another pass rush for his defense.

26. Atlanta Falcons-Dorin O’Daniel-Outside Linebacker-Clemson

The Falcons have a solid defense, but they need more depth at the linebacker position.

Baker Mayfield

27. New Orleans Saints-Baker Mayfield-Quarterback-Oklahoma

The Saints were able to re-sign quarterback Drew Brees, but he isn’t getting any younger and Baker Mayfield has a similar skill set to the future Hall of Famer.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers-Tremaine Edmunds-Middle Linebacker-Virginia Tech

There’s a possibility that the back injury suffered by Ryan Shazier could end his career which means that the Steelers need to find his replacement.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars-Orlando Brown-Offensive Tackle-Oklahoma

It’s all about the running game in Jacksonville, and the Jaguars will find themselves another road grader here.

30. Minnesota Vikings-Connor Williams-Offensive Tackle-Texas

After the Vikings just opened up the vault to pay quarterback Kirk Cousins, they’ll need to solidify the offensive line in front of him.

31. New England Patriots-Mike McGlinchey-Offensive Tackle-Notre Dame

The Patriots just lost left tackle Nate Solder in free agency as this is a huge hole to fill for them.

32. Philadelphia Eagles-Isaiah Oliver-Cornerback-Colorado

The Eagles already have a solid defense and now they’ll get even more depth in their secondary.
