1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals
Murray is the pick, according to multiple sources. Personally, I’d build around Rosen, but if Kingsbury wants his guy, he should be able to convince the front office.
2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Edge is a desperate need for the Niners, and Bosa is the best prospect in the draft, regardless of position. Perfect fit.
3. New York Jets: Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky
The Jets have needed a blue-chip edge rusher forever, and here’s Josh Allen, fresh off a 17 sack season. He’s a perfect fit for their 3-4 defense.
4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
The Raiders love Williams, need help everywhere, and Williams happens to be the highest player left on the board. He’s probably their number two guy.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White, LB, LSU
With Kwon Alexander headed for free agency, a replacement is needed, and the Bucs can’t do much better than the next great LB from the factory at LSU.
6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
The Giants and Haskins are a perfect fit. Haskins slides right in as an ideal backup to Manning, with his pocket passing skills, and has the kind of high upside to take over as starter quickly and go to pro bowls.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonah Williams, T/G, Alabama
The Jags are a team ready to compete right now, and Williams slides in as an immediate high-impact starter on an offensive line that desperately needs to do a better job facilitating its offense.
8. Detroit Lions: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
The Lions have been looking for an interior disruptor like Oliver since Ndamokung Suh left. It’s time.
9. Buffalo Bills: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
The Bills have a solid tandem at edge, but rotational depth is important, and highly valued by Coach Sean McDermott. Don’t be surprised if the Bills trade back, too.
10. Denver Broncos: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Lock should be the apple of John Elway’s eye through the pre-draft process. Big arm, excellent measurables, extensive starting experience, intangible moxie. He can and should be the face of the franchise.
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
Baker is a stud, with real shutdown ability and a physical edge that fits right in with what the Bengals are building on that side of the ball.
12. Green Bay Packers: Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State
The Packers have a glaring need at rush end, and Sweat is a great fit for the Packers 3-4 base. He destroyed the combine and has solid tape and production.
13. Miami Dolphins: Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan
The Dolphins are trying to build something special on the defensive side of the ball, and could do worse than adding a dynamic athlete like Gary to the defensive line.
14. Atlanta Falcons: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The Falcons must shore up the spot opposite Desmond Trufant for the long term, and though Greedy Williams may not be an impact starter right away, he has sky-high potential with his height-weight-speed combo.
15. Washington Redskins: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
Metcalf is probably the highest upside receiver in the draft, and should help out whoever lines up at quarterback for the Skins in 2019. His combine was incredible, and he passes the eye test.
16. Carolina Panthers: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The Panthers should continue to develop their secondary, which has been a huge liability, with a rock solid prospect like Murphy, who does a great job reading and reacting.
17. Cleveland Browns: Andre Dillard, T, Washington State
The Browns have improved the roster a lot, but need to find a franchise left tackle. Dilllard has maybe the best pass blocking resume, and profiles well as Baker Mayfield’s blindside protector.
18. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
Losing Sheldon Richardson, as the Vikings are expected to, would leave a big hole on the Vikings defensive line. The Vikings have bigger needs and would probably trade back in this scenario, but take a talent that has tumbled too far already in Wilkins.
19. Tennessee Titans: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
The Titans find Mariota a rock-solid option with great hands, who will also help tremendously in the running game.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Brian Burns, DE, Florida State
Burns is a heck of a pass rusher, and would be great opposite TJ Watt. That pass rush would help the whole defense and mask the deficiencies at linebacker and in the secondary.
21. Seattle Seahawks: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
After Jimmy Graham left, the Seahawks turned to Will Dissly who was solid. Fant is a perfect complement to him, and gives Wilson the seam stretching weapon he has really never had.
22. Baltimore Ravens: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
Brown is among the most dynamic players in this draft, and would fit perfectly in the short passing and hard-nosed running game the Ravens are building with Lamar Jackson.
23. Houston Texans: Jawaan Taylor, T/G, Florida
Taylor is a bit of a projection as an NFL player, but he has ideal size and great foot quickness and functional strength. Despite his rawness, he may already be better than any offensive lineman in Houston.
24. Oakland Raiders: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Brown would give the Raiders and Derek Carr a reliable winner in the short to intermediate levels of the field. He’s a better, younger Michael Crabtree.
25. Philadelphia Eagles: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
The Eagles love dynamic receivers after the catch, and need more weapons for Wentz, especially if Agholor’s strong season in 2017 turns to have been a fluke.
26. Indianapolis Colts: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
The Colts desperately need a dominant presence in the middle of the defensive line, and they don’t come much more imposing than Lawrence.
27. Oakland Raiders: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Jacobs is a perfect lead runner for Gruden’s Raiders and continues to transform what was a very poor offense a year ago.
28. Los Angeles Chargers: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
The Chargers biggest need, for awhile now, has been a dynamic pass-coverage linebacker. Bush is it.
29. Kansas City Chiefs: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
The Chiefs need serious help all over the defense, but secondary profiles as a good spot to improve here.
30. Green Bay Packers: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama
After cleaning up the a hole on defense with the first pick, the Packers take a field stretching threat at tight end, who was extremely successful at Alabama.
31. Los Angeles Rams: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama
The Rams need to continue to infuse young, cheap talent into their defense, since they’ll eventually need to pay big money to Jared Goff and maybe Cooper Kupp.
32. New England Patriots: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
Jones is a rock-solid QB prospect, with great size, great coaching and solid arm talent. The Patriots will either look to Jones as the successor or flip him for picks a couple of years down the road.
