Round 1:

Updated: April 23

1) Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow QB, LSU 6’3″ 221 lbs
Since he stated he would play for whoever drafts him this is a done deal. The Ohioan comes home.

2) Washington Redskins – Chase Young EDGE/DE, Ohio St. 6’5″ 264 lbs
Best player at any position available for this draft. The Skins already have 3 1st round picks on their DL. This will take it over the top. Best DL in NFL in decades. Now if they can afford to keep them.

3) TRADE – Los Angeles Chargers (from det) – Tua Tagovailoa QB, Alabama 6′ 217 lbs
From what I can research Chargers HC Anthony Lynn & GM Tom Telesco prefer Tua over Herbert. In return the Lions slide down to #6 overall. They also get the Chargers 3rd round pick #71 & their 1st round pick in 2021.

4) New York Giants – Tristan Wirfs OT/G, Iowa 6’5″ 320 lbs

5) Miami Dolphins – Justin Herbert QB, Oregon 6’6″ 236 lbs
The Dolphins love both Tua & Herbert so they choose to stand pat & take whoever falls to them without giving up any of their choice draft picks so they can develop some quality players around him.

6) TRADE – Detroit Lions (from lac) – Jeff Okudah CB, Ohio St. 6’1″ 205 lbs
This pick will be Derrick Brown or Okudah. They’ve been on his page all year & I don’t see them changing horses in the middle of the stream.

7) Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Simmons OLB/SS, Clemson 6’4″ 238 lbs (4.39)
This selection should be between Simmons & Brown. They lost the heart & soul of their defense when LB Kuechly retired. They decide to fill that void with the 2nd best defensive player available.

8) Arizona Cardinals – Jedrick Wills II OT/G, Alabama 6’4″ 312 lbs
I know the Cards resigned both of their starting OT’s but one of them is going to ride the pine because Wills is going to start from day 1.

9) Jacksonville Jaguars – C.J. Henderson CB, Florida 6’1″ 204 lbs (4.39)

10) Cleveland Browns – Mekhi Becton OT, Louisville 6’7″ 357 lbs

11) New York Jets – Andrew Thomas OT, Georgia 6’5″ 315 lbs

12) Las Vegas Raiders – Cee Dee Lamb WR Oklahoma 6’2″ 198 lbs

13) San Francisco 49’ers (from ind) – Derrick Brown DT/NT, Auburn 6’5″ 326 lbs

This could be the steal of the 1st round. Brown has been the beating heart of the Auburn defense the last 2 seasons. Great team leader on the field & in the locker room. They will very strongly consider WR Jerry Jeudy here.

14) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Javon Kinlaw DT/NT/3/4DE, South Carolina 6’5″ 315 lbs

15) Denver Broncos – Jerry Jeudy WR, Alabama 6’1″ 193 lbs
I personally think Jeudy is the best WR in this class but Lamb is getting more love in the lead up to the draft. But Elway will be very quick to snag him immediately.

16) Atlanta Falcons – K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE/OLB, LSU 6’4″ 254 lbs

17) Dallas Cowboys – Xavier McKinney FS/SS/CB, Alabama 6′ 201 lbs

18) Miami Dolphins (from pit) – Henry Ruggs III WR/SWR, Alabama 5’11” 188 lbs (4.27) A lot of mocks have them going OT here but I think they’re a slight reach here. This will give them electricity for their offense. Fastest player @ the combine. He can take it to the promised land on any touch at any time. Talk about lightnin’ in a bottle. This player could have coined the phrase.

19) Las Vegas Raiders (from chi) – Kenneth Murray ILB/OLB, Oklahoma 6’2″ 241 lbs
The Raiders have already signed 2 good LB’s & this selection will make their LB core maybe the best in the NFL. Had 104 tackles in 2019. Was one of the nations leaders in 2018 w/ 155 tackles & 12.5 tackles for loss. Also broke the Sooners single game record for tackles with 28.

20) Jacksonville Jaguars (from lar) – Patrick Queen OLB/ILB, LSU 6’1″ 229 lbs

21) Philadelphia Eagles – Justin Jefferson WR, LSU 6’1″ 202 lbs

22) Minnesota Vikings (from buf) – Yetur Gross – Matos EDGE, Penn St. 6’5″ 265 lbs
The Vikes are going to need some new talent on their DL with the losses of Everson Griffen & Linval Joseph to FA. Had 40 tackles & 9.5 sacks in 2019. In 2018 he produced 54 tackles, 8.5 sacks & an eye popping 20.5 tackles for loss.

23) New England Patriots – Tee Higgins WR, Clemson 6’4″ 216 lbs
It looks like their willing to go into the season w/ Stidham & Hoyer as their QB’s (OUCH). I personally think we have a better chance of finding out what the Chinese Government has planned for us next than we do trying to figure what HC Bill Belechick & the Patriots are going to do at #23. I think he’s going to trade down into the 2nd round & try to pick up a 3rd or 4th rounder also. They don’t have a lot of selections.

24) New Orleans Saints – Denzel Mims WR, Baylor 6’3″ 207 lbs (4.38)

25) Minnesota Vikings – Trevon Diggs CB, Alabama 6’1″ 205 lbs

26) Miami Dolphins (from hou) – D’Andre Swift RB, Georgia 5’8″ 212 lbs

27) Seattle Seahawks – Austin Jackson OT, USC 6’5″ 322 lbs

28) Baltimore Ravens – Zack Baum OLB/ILB, Wisconsin 6’3″ 238 lbs

29) Tennessee Titans – A.J. Epenesa 3/4DE/DE, Iowa 6’6″ 275 lbs

30) Green Bay Packers – Jalen Reagor WR, TCU, 5’11” 206 lbs

31) San Francisco 49’ers – Chase Claypool WR, Notre Dame 6’4″ 238 lbs
Here’s a WR they can play on the other side from rookie sensation Deebo Samuels. Claypool is stronger, bigger & faster than Tee Higgins. Blew away the combine with a very quick 40 time for his size of 4.42. Possess strong hands, natural moves & definitely enough speed to score on any touch. When this WR gets in the open field & up to speed it takes 2 DB’s to take him down if they can catch him.

32) Kansas City Chiefs – Jonathan Taylor RB, Wisconsin 5’10” 226 lbs (4.39)
Here’s a 3 down RB for HC Andy Reid & the Chiefs. Had 2003 yards & 21 td’s in 2019 for a 6.3 avg. Also had 26 receptions for 252 yds & 5 td’s. In 2018 he had 2194 yds w/ 16 td’s for a 7.1 avg. In 2017 he produced 1977 yds & 13 td’s for a 6.6 avg.

Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5 | Round 6 | Round 7
