No curveball here, better prospect, incredible production at the collegiate level. Jacksonville makes ‘Safe’ choice with Hutchinson
Are we really trying to pretend a QB won’t go top 5/top 10. Jared Goff is not a winner, even FOOTBALL GUY Dan Campbell sees that. Take your shot with the highest ceiling QB in the class
Texans didn’t expect him to be here, can’t convey a weird prospect like Walker, will fit well in Lovie Smith’s defense.
Once clearly the #1 prospect, “off the ground” concerns have cast doubt in the minds of front office staff. That being said, the ALL-TIME JETS choose here if it turns out he really doesn’t like football!
With both tackles on the board, a down trade is very possible to let a team come up and take Pickett. If they don’t trade here, it’s 100% a tackle. Neal 1a to Ekwonu 1b, I’m leaning Neal because he projects to be a better completion right now for Andrew Thomas and brings a bad streak that I don’t see in other top OTs.
Surprised this isn’t a potentially bigger story, while everyone is looking for Rhule to take a QB, the biggest need is OT, to avoid ruining another QB. Heck their OC Macadoodle even pointed out that Darnold was going to be their starter, albeit a slip. Carolina keeps the NC State product at home.
giants by CHI
Dream scenario here for the Giants. Pass rusher is a deep pool this year and I expect them to go that route in round 2. Wink Martindale’s system is all about coverage and confusion. The Giants are replacing James Bradberry (draft day trade) with the top CB prospect.
For some time I have believed that Drake London is simply the best prospect in the WR class. I also believe Arthur Smith brought in Mariota as QB. London + Pitts create a fairly dynamic receiving body, replacing suspended Calvin Ridley
sea hawks by john
state of florida
Pete Carroll will almost certainly want to take Hamilton here, but they need a quick pass and he could be the last of the best guys on the shelf.
Jets by sea
The Jets need a WR due to their attempts to trade one this offseason, they’re picking from the litter here with only London off the board. Imagine the best Wilson -> Wilson ball stacks!
The Redskins AKA The Football Team AKA The Commanders have actually been drafting well lately and I don’t see how they let top safety on the board get past them here.
Derek Stingley Jr.
Need meets BPA, Stingley has soared since his pro day and is one of CB’s top prospects. I didn’t have the balls, but Kenny Pickett in Minnesota is very intriguing because they say the front office is sour on Cousins
Texas by KEY
Will they be tempted to take a passer to help Davis Mills and the attack, yes. Can they pass on the latest OT elite perspective, NO
Ravens take CB, OT or DL/EDGE. I think there is a chance that McDuffie will be the choice to replace Marcus Peters in the future. BUT I think they are settling on the versatile Edge (former water polo player) who will fit their system well. FWIW Karlaftis behaved to Khalil Mack
Eagles through MIA
MONSTER of a man, and a clear replacement plan for the great Eagle Fletcher Cox…the comedian in me wants to give the Eagles the Olave here.
Winston is going to need some away help because this team hasn’t been the same since Michael Thomas quit playing. Why not replace him with another Ohio State Stallion
Chargers always seem to match the best player available with the need. Perfect spot here to solidify the O line for Mr. Herbert and that dynamic offense.
Eagles via NOLA
The Eagles go WR in the 1st round for the 3rd straight year and the 2nd straight Alabama WR in the first round. No excuses for Jalen Hurts after this year.
They say on the street that the Saints like a QB that isn’t Pickett or Willis… I’m willing to bet it’s not that Desmond Ridder lawn chair. The Saints keep the Ole Miss product in the SEC country with the extra draw ammunition obtained from the Eagles.
The Steelers are almost certainly going to QB here and if they don’t come for WIllis, the Steelers are keeping the Pickett in Pittsburgh.
Pats trade, but if they don’t, Lloyd is a perfect defender to fit Steve Belichick’s versatile defense as he adapts to any scheme and does whatever is asked of him. My #1 LB in the class.
Packers by BT
Drake London and Treylon Burkes stand out for me as the best size speed combos this year. I don’t think Burkes will replace Adams but I love his chances to produce on Matt Lafleur’s offense.
With the elite sporting profile held back by size, Cards would be well advised to invest in the position after trotting Malcolm Butler onto the pitch last season.
I hate the idea of the Cowboys getting a steal here, but Linderbaum is a line-changing player. Top 10 talents playing in a less valuable position.
Andrew Booth Jr.
Biggest need other than offensive coordinator for the Bills, will feel burnt out after targeting McDuffie, but Booth Jr. matches the Bills PUN INTENDED.
EYE EMOJI, Ryan Tannehill’s successor is in the building. The craziest thing about Ridder’s rise to power, “his mobility.” This is a classic case of NFL GMs and Colby Dant not seeing each other okay, with Ridder coming in as Dant QB’s No. 8 yard chair.
Could be Kenyon Green but will almost certainly be the best OG as the Bucs need a starter and I think the rest of the roster is in good shape.
They’re unlikely to go OL here, but for my money they go DL and the food court is a great way to improve your pass rush without drafting a scramble.
Chiefs through 49ers through MIA
Simple solution, let Tyreek Hill walk for a billion dollars and draft his replacement with the pick you picked up from the Dolphins… franchise-winning management.
Luxury pick here for the Chiefs, top 10 upside down. We’ve seen this before, hurt but the monster pass thrower falls through the draft and comes all the way back, but not in time for day one…the rich get richer
They invested in OL in FA, logical for them to continue to store pass rushers given the state of the AFC
the Lions via LAR
After getting their QB of the future, they solidify OL with the last of the 1st round OTs in Tyler Smith from Tulsa, the Lions can focus on defense for the rest of the draft.
