    1 Eagles - Minkah Fitzpatrick CB -
    Arguably the best player in the draft fittingly goes #1

    2 Colts - Kevin Toliver CB -
    Not quite as good as Fitzpatrick, but he is close. Colts have one old CB and several mediocre guys.

    3 Chargers - Lamar Jackson QB -
    Rivers is old, and Chargers have a chance to get an electric athlete with a big arm at QB. Look out AFC West

    4 Saints - Saquon Barkley HB
    The McKinnon trial lasted one season. The rest of the Saints backfield is filled with depth guys. After missing one of the top 3 HBs last season, Saints go big with the top back in the draft

    5 Lions - Quenton Nelson LG
    Lions wanted one of the top 2 CBs, but with them off the board, they go with the best overall olineman in Nelson who can play G or T

    6 Redskins - Christian Kirk WR
    Skins could use a spark on offense, and Kirk is an explosive option.

    7 Rams - Calvin Ridley WR
    Rams are in desperate need of a WR and Ridley is the best well rounded #1 WR in the draft.

    8 Raiders - Alvin Kamara HB
    Raiders are hard to peg here. Will they go Oline or defense here? They dont have a ton of talent in the backfield, Kamara would be an instant upgrade and playmaker.

    9 Bills - Artis Currie OT
    Bills have needs on both lines, but RT may be a more pressing need. Currie can help open up more room for Cook

    10 Steelers - Quincy Wilson CB
    Wilson is the 3rd CB off the board in a top loaded CB class. Steelers had some issues stopping opposing passing attacks at times.

    11 Texans - Marshon Lattimore CB
    After moving Wentz, will Houston go QB here? The smoke screens say no, and we will believe them for now, as they also have holes at CB

    12 Browns - Arden Key DE
    Browns Dline isn't strong. Key can be a pass rusher at DE in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. A fast strong DE who is similar to Barnett from last year's draft.

    13 Giants - Malik Jefferson OLB
    Jefferson is an elite athlete at LB. Might be a bit raw, but Giants will try to take advantage of his talent.

    14 Jaguars - Iman Marshall CB
    Another CB for the Jags to pair with Ramsey to have one of the best young CB units in the league

    15 Saints - Ryan Ramczyk OT
    Saints need some help on the Oline. Ramczyk will help protect Dak and open holes for their new HB.

    16 Seahawks - Deandre Goolsby TE
    With Graham gone, the Seahawks have nothing at TE. This may be a bit high for his talent, but need speaks here.

    17 Lions - Jordan Thomas CB
    Lions have been thwarted at both picks for the CB they want. They settle on a reach for Thomas as a desperate need.

    18 Raiders - Martez Ivey RG
    Raiders finally go Oline here. Ivey will shore up a top Oline unit in the AFC

    19 Vikings - Curtis Samuel HB
    Bye bye AP and McKinnon. Vikes need a replacement and Samuel is perhaps the next best back in the draft.

    20 Panthers - Conor McDermott RT
    Panthers would consider CB here, but with the best ones off the board, they reinforce the Oline with McDermott

    21 Ravens - Courtland Sutton WR
    Ravens would love Ridley or Kirk to fall here, but with them gone, they take the best outside WR left.

    22 Bucs Brian Allen C
    Bucs have a solid roster, and could possibly go defense here, but the value of Allen is too much to pass up

    23 Texans - DeShone Kizer QB
    Kizer is somehow still on the board, and the Texans can't pass him up a 2nd time. They could also consider Rosen here. But you don't really think they are going back to Brock do you??

    24 Chiefs - Alex Anzalone MLB
    Chiefs get lucky getting the ageless Derrick Johnson's replacement this far down in the first. Anzalone is a great coverage MLB.

    25 Titans - Derrius Guice HB
    Murray is old, Hillman isn't impressive, and the Titans pick up the 4th HB in the 1st.

    26 Packers Cameron Smith MLB
    Another good coverage MLB in Smith. The Packers could use another LB, be it Smith or a few other options. The LBs are in a prime position to be taken in the 20s of the first.

    27 49ers - Maea Teuhema RG
    Oline is the theme of the draft. Teuhema will start day 1 for the 9ers

    28 Broncos - Daylon Mack DT
    Broncos dline is a bit depleted. They get the luxury of their choice of DTs in the draft.

    29 Falcons CeCe Jefferson DE
    Falcons luck out with an elite pass rusher this late in the first. One of the best rosters in the league gets even better.

    30 Steelers - TJ Watt OLB
    If the Steelers don't go LB earlier in the first, they may get it here. Watt is a capable 34 OLB and could bring edge pressure for the Steelers.

    31 Dolphins - Madison Powlus RG
    With the loss of Loadholt in FA, Dolphins have a hole in the Oline that Powlus will be glad to fill.

    32 Cowboys - Josh Rosen QB
    What a talent to drop this late to the SB Champs. Rosen can be the future after Palmer is gone.

    You had Brian Allen going at 22, I took him at 21. Well done, sir.
