    Full Analysis

    March 27, 2017

    1. Myles Garrett

      DE

      Texas A&M

      Garrett has an all-pro ceiling and combines elite traits with high-end football character. The Browns obviously need a quarterback, but they need great football players first and foremost, and Garrett has a chance to be special.
    2. Solomon Thomas

      DE

      Stanford

      Projected trade to Panthers
      (Projected trade with 49ers) The Panthers have an additional second-round pick that helps facilitate a move up to target a versatile pass rusher who can be moved up and down the defensive line in rush situations.
    3. Marshon Lattimore

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Bears are in desperate need of a true top cornerback, and Lattimore is that guy in this draft.
    4. Jamal Adams

      S

      LSU

      The Jaguars have some promising young talent, but they looked undisciplined too often last year. Adams is the ultimate "sheriff" in this draft, with an ability to lead from the back end and in the locker room.
    5. Haason Reddick

      DE

      Temple

      Surprised? Reddick's outstanding athleticism and ability to play inside linebacker and roll outside to rush on third downs make him a flexible, ascending prospect.
    6. Leonard Fournette

      RB

      LSU

      If you don't have a good quarterback, you better have a good defense and a good running game. The Jets have some defensive pieces, but in Fournette, they could get a potentially dominant runner to handle the heavy lifting for the offense.
    7. Malik Hooker

      S

      Ohio St.

      The Chargers could use a wide receiver, but this feels too early for that position. Hooker gives them a very talented, instinctive back-end presence.
    8. O.J. Howard

      TE

      Alabama

      Projected trade to 49ers
      (Projected trade with Panthers) Of course the 49ers have other pressing needs, but Howard has tremendous upside and would be a perfect fit for Kyle Shanahan's play-action passing attack.
    9. Cam Robinson

      OT

      Alabama

      Robinson's big, physical style could fit at right tackle if the Bengals are concerned about Cedric Ogbuehi's strength, or they could kick him down inside to take over at right guard.
    10. Mitchell Trubisky

      QB

      North Carolina

      This situation allows the Bills to bring Trubisky along behind Tyrod Taylor until they are ready to cut him loose as the starter.
    11. Takkarist McKinley

      DE

      UCLA

      We all know the Saints need a cornerback, but in a deep cornerback draft, the Saints could afford to wait on that position while grabbing a talented edge rusher like McKinley.
    12. Jonathan Allen

      DE

      Alabama

      There are some concerns about the health of Allen's shoulders, which could cause him to fall a little bit. It might be hard for the Browns to pass on a chance to pair Allen with Myles Garrett, though.
    13. Reuben Foster

      LB

      Alabama

      This would be one of the best marriages in the draft. Foster is fast, physical, and can cover. This is exactly what the Cardinals are looking for.
    14. Gareon Conley

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Eagles need a cornerback, and Conley has good size and the ability to press and cover all over the field. His strong combine performance helped his stock.
    15. Ryan Ramczyk

      OT

      Wisconsin

      Joe Haeg simply isnít strong enough to anchor and hold up at the point of attack. Ramczyk is a tremendous run blocker who will improve pass pro on the right side for the Colts.
    16. Mike Williams

      WR

      Clemson

      The Ravens pick up a big, go-to target with fantastic ball skills who has the potential to become a WR1.
    17. Jabrill Peppers

      LB

      Michigan

      This is probably earlier than I would go with Peppers, but with Deangelo Hall on the back end, Peppers would be allowed to play in space and be deployed all over the field like he was at Michigan.
    18. Forrest Lamp

      OG

      Western Kentucky

      The Titans need cornerback and wide receiver help, but they also need a quality guard as well, and Lamp is one of the safest offensive linemen in the draft.
    19. Taco Charlton

      DE

      Michigan

      Taco has loads of potential as an edge rusher, but his pedestrian combine could have hurt his stock a bit. Still, he has the traits and potential to get Tampa excited.
    20. Garett Bolles

      OT

      Utah

      Bolles is an insane athlete and would have been an easy choice in the Gary Kubiak era, but my guess is that Denver will still have a great deal of interest in him even if he is a little on the light side.
    21. John Ross

      WR

      Washington

      Let's get fast, Detroit. Let's get really, really fast and add a dynamic deep threat with scary run-and-catch potential underneath. The Lions can look for another pass rusher later.
    22. Tre'Davious White

      CB

      LSU

      White has top-notch feet and can mirror and match with the best of them. Miami is light at cornerback; White should be able to step in and be an immediate third corner with a chance to win a starting spot in camp.
    23. Malik McDowell

      DT

      Michigan St.

      McDowell has a high ceiling and a low floor, but he has outstanding size and could become an extremely disruptive interior defender if he gets his motor right.
    24. Marlon Humphrey

      CB

      Alabama

      Another size-speed cornerback for the Raiders, but he's also an exceptionally aggressive run supporter who sets the tone like a safety.
    25. Zach Cunningham

      LB

      Vanderbilt

      Cunningham's tackle production at Vanderbilt is very impressive, but so is his ability to cover on passing downs. He gives the Texans Brian Cushing's eventual replacement to play next to Benardrick McKinney.
    26. Kevin King

      CB

      Washington

      I feel like this pick is a wild card in the draft because John Schneider is fairly wide open and hard to predict. King matches up with the a need and the physical profile the Seahawks look for.
    27. Corey Davis

      WR

      Western Michigan

      I could see Davis going much higher in this draft, but I still think some teams might shy away from him until he is healthy enough to run and post a good time. He would be a great get for Andy Reid in this spot.
    28. Derek Barnett

      DE

      Tennessee

      Barnett doesn't have the burst out of his stance to put fear into offensive tackles, but his production wasn't an accident. With outstanding hands and good power, Rod Marinelli will be able to have him ready to produce early on for Dallas.
    29. Charles Harris

      DE

      Missouri

      I know Green Bay needs a cornerback, but they could also use a pass rusher, and this draft is fairly thin in that department. Harris gives the Packers an outstanding athlete with loads of potential as a stand-up rusher.
    30. David Njoku

      TE

      Miami

      I would run this card up to the commissioner if Njoku dropped this far. Njoku has the ability to work all three levels of the field and has the potential to become a solid blocker.
    31. Taylor Moton

      OG

      Western Michigan

      Moton would be a kick-down player who would be coming from tackle to guard. He's strong and athletic enough to handle the Falcons' zone-blocking responsibilities. He might also provide tackle flexibility in a pinch.
    32. Chidobe Awuzie

      CB

      Colorado

      Projected trade to Saints
      Earlier in the round, I had the Saints taking a pass rusher and this time they look at finding secondary help. Awuzie has good size and explosiveness and is a quality cover man. It also helps that heís a talented gunner on special teams.
  2. Bucky Brooks

    Full Analysis

    March 20, 2017

    1. Myles Garrett

      DE

      Texas A&M

      The Browns can't go wrong taking the best player in the draft with the first pick.
    2. Solomon Thomas

      DE

      Stanford

      The 49ers don't need another big body in the middle, but Thomas is the top player on the board and gives them another disruptive defender to anchor an emerging defense.
    3. Jamal Adams

      S

      LSU

      The Bears need an enforcer in the middle to set the tone for the defense.
    4. Leonard Fournette

      RB

      LSU

      The Jaguars want to lean more on a run-centric attack to alleviate the pressure on Blake Bortles.
    5. Marshon Lattimore

      CB

      Ohio St.

      A team can never have enough cover corners with size, speed, and athleticism.
    6. Jonathan Allen

      DE

      Alabama

      Mo Wilkerson's weight issues and Sheldon Richardson's behavioral problems could prompt the Jets to take a high-character defender like Allen.
    7. Malik Hooker

      S

      Ohio St.

      The Chargers could use a true centerfielder in the middle of the defense with outstanding instincts and ball skills.
    8. Derek Barnett

      DE

      Tennessee

      The most polished pass rusher in the draft would enhance a pass rush that should improve with the return of Julius Peppers.
    9. Reuben Foster

      LB

      Alabama

      Foster is a menacing "Mike" linebacker with a nasty temperament and rugged game.
    10. Mike Williams

      WR

      Clemson

      The Bills have a WR1 in Watkins but they could use a "bully" on the edge to take advantage of smaller corners.
    11. Tre'Davious White

      CB

      LSU

      If the Saints aren't able to land Malcolm Butler, the LSU standout would be a perfect fallback as a potential CB1.
    12. O.J. Howard

      TE

      Alabama

      Nothing wrong with adding a big, athletic tight end with speed and quickness to the lineup.
    13. Corey Davis

      WR

      Western Michigan

      The Cardinals need an eventual successor for Larry Fitzgerald as the team's WR1.
    14. Teez Tabor

      CB

      Florida

      The Eagles need a long, rangy corner to thrive as a CB1 in Jim Schwartz's system.
    15. Chidobe Awuzie

      CB

      Colorado

      The Colts need a young, athletic corner to play opposite Vontae Davis.
    16. John Ross

      WR

      Washington

      An electric playmaker with speed to burn would be a welcome addition to an offense that wants to play long ball with Joe Flacco at quarterback.
    17. Dalvin Cook

      RB

      Florida St.

      The ultra-explosive runner would alleviate pressure on Kirk Cousins in the Redskins' backfield.
    18. Takkarist McKinley

      DE

      UCLA

      Adding a pass rusher isn't necessarily a pressing need for the Titans, but McKinley would give them another high-motor rusher to add to the mix.
    19. Jarrad Davis

      LB

      Florida

      Davis is a hard-hitting linebacker with positional flexibility.
    20. Garett Bolles

      OT

      Utah

      Contrary to popular opinion, the Broncos' offensive line struggles prevented the team from making another run at the title.
    21. Taco Charlton

      DE

      Michigan

      Charlton is a solid edge defender with a rock-solid game at the point of attack.
    22. Haason Reddick

      DE

      Temple

      Reddick is an active linebacker with a non-stop motor and a versatile game.
    23. Ryan Ramczyk

      OT

      Wisconsin

      Giants add a rugged blocker who is capable of keeping Eli Manning upright in the pocket.
    24. Cam Robinson

      OT

      Alabama

      The Raiders need a corner but could opt to take a big, physical tackle to groom for a bigger role down the line.
    25. Mitchell Trubisky

      QB

      North Carolina

      If the Texans don't resolve their quarterback issues with a veteran free agent, the team could turn to the North Carolina standout as their QB of the future.
    26. Fabian Moreau

      CB

      UCLA

      Moreau is a fast-rising corner with a blue-collar game.
    27. Deshaun Watson

      QB

      Clemson

      Andy Reid has a knack for transforming athletic quarterbacks into efficient passers (see Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick).
    28. Charles Harris

      DE

      Missouri

      The Cowboys still need to find a legitimate pass rusher to feature off the edge. Harris is a blue-collar worker with a rugged game and non-stop motor that fits the Cowboys' profile.
    29. Christian McCaffrey

      RB

      Stanford

      Can you imagine how much fun Mike McCarthy would have creating big-play opportunities for McCaffrey as a runner, receiver and returner?
    30. Tim Williams

      DE

      Alabama

      The Steelers need a fastball pitcher off the edge. Williams has exceptional first-step quickness and body control.
    31. T.J. Watt

      LB

      Wisconsin

      Watt is a versatile edge rusher who would add another dimension to the Falcons' pass rush.
    32. Adoree' Jackson

      CB

      USC

      Projected trade to Saints
      Jackson gives the Saints a two-way playmaker to add some sizzle to the lineup.
  3. Daniel Jeremiah

    Full Analysis

    March 13, 2017

    1. Myles Garrett

      DE

      Texas A&M

      The Browns are still in search of their franchise quarterback, but they can't pass up the opportunity to land a premier pass rusher.
    2. Solomon Thomas

      DE

      Stanford

      Thomas has the versatility to play up and down the line of scrimmage, and he seems like a perfect match for what John Lynch is trying to build.
    3. Jamal Adams

      S

      LSU

      Adams is a special talent who would provide the Bears with outstanding leadership in the secondary.
    4. Jonathan Allen

      DE

      Alabama

      The Jaguars already added Calais Campbell in free agency, but Tom Coughlin and David Caldwell both understand the importance of loading up on the defensive line.
    5. Malik Hooker

      S

      Ohio St.

      The Titans added Johnathan Cyprien in free agency, but Hooker is a far superior talent who would add some much-needed playmaking skills to the backend of the defense.
    6. Marshon Lattimore

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Lattimore's durability is a concern but he is the most gifted cornerback in this draft class.
    7. Deshaun Watson

      QB

      Clemson

      The Chargers start preparing for life after Philip Rivers by selecting Watson. He's not ready to play right away but he'll have time to sit and learn behind one of the best in the business.
    8. Leonard Fournette

      RB

      LSU

      This seems like the perfect fit for both Fournette and the Panthers.
    9. Derek Barnett

      DE

      Tennessee

      Barnett isn't a great tester but he's a heck of a football player.
    10. Gareon Conley

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Conley is a rock-solid football player on tape and his combine workout was outstanding.
    11. Christian McCaffrey

      RB

      Stanford

      The Saints have holes on the defensive side of the ball, but selfishly I'd love to see McCaffrey in this system.
    12. O.J. Howard

      TE

      Alabama

      The Browns coached Howard at the Senior Bowl, and he's one of the safest players in the draft class.
    13. Reuben Foster

      LB

      Alabama

      Foster would be a steal if he fell this far in the draft.
    14. Tre'Davious White

      CB

      LSU

      The Eagles upgraded the receiver spot in free agency, and now they need to address the cornerback position in the draft.
    15. Forrest Lamp

      OG

      Western Kentucky

      It's not a sexy pick, but Lamp would team up with last year's first-round selection (Ryan Kelly) and Jack Mewhort to provide a rock-solid interior offensive line.
    16. Charles Harris

      DE

      Missouri

      Harris is a very productive edge rusher who is plenty athletic enough to drop in coverage if needed.
    17. Jabrill Peppers

      LB

      Michigan

      Peppers is a unique athlete, with the ability to excel at the nickel position as well as play as a high safety. He will also be a major difference-maker on special teams.
    18. Corey Davis

      WR

      Western Michigan

      Davis has all of the tools to develop into a true No. 1 receiver.
    19. Chidobe Awuzie

      CB

      Colorado

      I'm a big fan of Awuzie's game; he is another player with the versatility to play cornerback or safety.
    20. Cam Robinson

      OT

      Alabama

      Robinson has some flaws on tape but he has excellent size, length and power.
    21. Takkarist McKinley

      DE

      UCLA

      McKinley would be ultra-productive playing opposite of Ziggy Ansah in the Lions' defensive front.
    22. David Njoku

      TE

      Miami

      I know the Dolphins are bringing in Julius Thomas, but Njoku is too good to pass up at this point in the draft. He is a matchup nightmare.
    23. Haason Reddick

      DE

      Temple

      Reddick has the ability to play any of the three linebacker spots and he can provide some pass rush off the edge if needed.
    24. John Ross

      WR

      Washington

      This isn't a big need for the Raiders but Ross could take this passing game to a new level with his big-play ability.
    25. Garett Bolles

      OT

      Utah

      Bolles is not only ultra-athletic, but he plays with a nasty streak in the run game.
    26. Kevin King

      CB

      Washington

      King is the perfect fit in the Seahawks' scheme. His stock continues to soar following an outstanding combine performance.
    27. Dalvin Cook

      RB

      Florida St.

      Cook is the perfect fit in Andy Reid's system, and he would be a tremendous value at this point in the draft. The Chiefs could then turn around and trade one of their current backs for an extra draft pick.
    28. Evan Engram

      TE

      Mississippi

      Engram would be a matchup nightmare in the Cowboys' offense and he'd help Dak Prescott continue to develop into a top-tier signal-caller.
    29. Taco Charlton

      DE

      Michigan

      The Packers lost Julius Peppers in free agency; Charlton has the tools to develop into a double-digit sack artist at the next level.
    30. Mike Williams

      WR

      Clemson

      The Steelers can't rely on Martavis Bryant; Williams would be an incredible value if he were to slip this far down the board.
    31. T.J. Watt

      LB

      Wisconsin

      Watt has tremendous upside as a pass rusher and his motor never stops running.
    32. Mitchell Trubisky

      QB

      North Carolina

      Projected trade to Saints
      The Saints need to start planning for life after Drew Brees, and Trubisky has plenty of upside at the position.
  4. Chad Reuter

    Full Analysis

    March 15, 2017

    1. Myles Garrett

      DE

      Texas A&M

      Garrett confirmed at the combine what everyone knew: He's a fantastic athlete.
    2. Jamal Adams

      S

      LSU

      Kyle Shanahan is playing the waiting game for Kirk Cousins, so the 49ers look to instead add a leader in the secondary.
    3. Solomon Thomas

      DE

      Stanford

      Thomas is an outstanding player with position versatility the Bears will appreciate.
    4. Leonard Fournette

      RB

      LSU

      Jacksonville gets an elite back to pair with T.J. Yeldon, with Chris Ivory possibly a cap casualty.
    5. Corey Davis

      WR

      Western Michigan

      Marcus Mariota could use some receivers. Now.
    6. Marshon Lattimore

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Jets are lacking talent at cornerback, so one of the Buckeyes' talented corners should find a home in NYC.
    7. Malik Hooker

      S

      Ohio St.

      Hooker's range and ball skills are worthy of a top-10 pick.
    8. John Ross

      WR

      Washington

      Finding speed at the receiver position should be a priority for the Panthers.
    9. Jonathan Allen

      DE

      Alabama

      The Bengals might see a younger version of Geno Atkins in Allen.
    10. Mike Williams

      WR

      Clemson

      Tyrod Taylor's back in the fold, so finding him dependable targets becomes a high priority.
    11. Derek Barnett

      DE

      Tennessee

      Barnett pairs well with Cameron Jordan in bringing pressure into the opponents' backfield.
    12. Deshaun Watson

      QB

      Clemson

      If Jimmy Garrapolo doesn't come to Cleveland, I won't be surprised if Hue Jackson pushed to use some of the team's extra picks to get Watson.
    13. DeShone Kizer

      QB

      Notre Dame

      Carson Palmer's nearly through, and Kizer's a good fit to learn and emulate the former No. 1 pick's game.
    14. Gareon Conley

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Philly finds a new starting corner.
    15. Reuben Foster

      LB

      Alabama

      Foster has some red flags for teams, but his talent won't allow him to leave the top 15.
    16. Cam Robinson

      OT

      Alabama

      This feels like a Michael Oher-type bargain for Ozzie Newsome, getting a new right tackle to replace Ricky Wagner.
    17. Jabrill Peppers

      LB

      Michigan

      Now that Peppers showed he's perfectly capable of handling deep-half responsibility, the Browns will grab him up.
    18. O.J. Howard

      TE

      Alabama

      Free agent signings allow the Titans to bolster their offense with two first-round receiving threats.
    19. Dalvin Cook

      RB

      Florida St.

      Cook's shoulder surgeries might drive down his value, but it is interesting to think about him joining former college teammate Jameis Winston.
    20. Garett Bolles

      OT

      Utah

      John Elway needs a reliable pass protector to keep Paxton Lynch (or Tony Romo?) upright.
    21. Taco Charlton

      DE

      Michigan

      Charlton stays in-state to help Ziggy Ansah bully passers in the NFC North.
    22. Haason Reddick

      DE

      Temple

      Reddick's climb up draft boards during the post-season lands him in Miami.
    23. Malik McDowell

      DT

      Michigan St.

      Power, length, and athleticism? Sounds like a Giant to me.
    24. Montravius Adams

      DT

      Auburn

      Jack Del Rio gets his quick and strong pass rusher inside.
    25. Mitchell Trubisky

      QB

      North Carolina

      Trubisky will need time to develop (with Romo as a mentor?), but has the skills to be a good QB.
    26. Ryan Ramczyk

      OT

      Wisconsin

      Signing Luke Joeckel was nice and all, but Ramczyk will be a very good starter once his hip has healed.
    27. Christian McCaffrey

      RB

      Stanford

      The release of Jamaal Charles makes finding a speedy and elusive back a necessity; enter McCaffrey.
    28. Marlon Humphrey

      CB

      Alabama

      Humphrey's physicality and speed will endear him to Jerry Jones.
    29. Forrest Lamp

      OG

      Western Kentucky

      T.J. Lang signed with the Lions, so the Packers plug in Lamp.
    30. Takkarist McKinley

      DE

      UCLA

      James Harrison can't play forever, and Jarvis Jones is a free agent.
    31. Jordan Willis

      DE

      Kansas St.

      Willis really impressed with his athleticism at the combine, so now it's unclear if he's even available at this spot.
    32. Tre'Davious White

      CB

      LSU

      Projected trade to Saints
      New Orleans uses the Brandin Cooks trade to add a talented cover man.

    Full Analysis

    March 7, 2017

    1. Myles Garrett

      DE

      Texas A&M

      Garrett is the best pass rusher in the draft and will fit nicely in the Browns' new 4-3 defense.
    2. Jonathan Allen

      DE

      Alabama

      Projected trade to Redskins
      (Projected trade with 49ers for QB Kirk Cousins) Redskins get an excellent 3-4 defensive end who gives you an inside pass rush.
    3. Marshon Lattimore

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Lattimore has terrific cover skills. The Bears will solve their quarterback problem by other means.
    4. Leonard Fournette

      RB

      LSU

      Fournette will take pressure off QB Blake Bortles.
    5. Jamal Adams

      S

      LSU

      Adams has excellent cover skills and also provides solid run defense.
    6. Dalvin Cook

      RB

      Florida St.

      Cook is an explosive back who will help the Jets' quarterback, whoever it is.
    7. Malik Hooker

      S

      Ohio St.

      Chargers add a very good cover safety in Hooker.
    8. Derek Barnett

      DE

      Tennessee

      GM Dave Gettleman believes in having a strong defensive line. Barnett is an excellent addition.
    9. Reuben Foster

      LB

      Alabama

      Foster reminds me of Luke Kuechly.
    10. Mike Williams

      WR

      Clemson

      The Bills keep Tyrod Taylor and draft a quarterback later (see Pick No. 31).
    11. Sidney Jones

      CB

      Washington

      Help is needed in many places in the Saints' defense.
    12. Mitchell Trubisky

      QB

      North Carolina

      Trubisky is the top quarterback in a weak group.
    13. Solomon Thomas

      DE

      Stanford

      Thomas could replace Calais Campbell, whom they'll probably lose in free agency.
    14. Takkarist McKinley

      DE

      UCLA

      Projected trade to Saints
      (Projected trade with Eagles for WR Brandin Cooks) Help is needed in New Orleans with the outside pass rush.
    15. Garett Bolles

      OT

      Utah

      Andrew Luck gets some much-needed help in protection.
    16. John Ross

      WR

      Washington

      Joe Flacco gets much-needed speed at receiver.
    17. Caleb Brantley

      DT

      Florida

      The rebuilding of the defensive line continues.
    18. Ryan Ramczyk

      OT

      Wisconsin

      Projected trade to Giants
      (Projected trade up with Titans for No. 23 pick) The Giants get the left tackle they desperately need.
    19. Christian McCaffrey

      RB

      Stanford

      The versatile McCaffrey can fill many roles.
    20. O.J. Howard

      TE

      Alabama

      The Broncos fill their offensive line needs in free agency, and add a receiving weapon here.
    21. Charles Harris

      DE

      Missouri

      I'm not sure the Lions sit here when it's all over; I could see them trading up for an OT.
    22. Tre'Davious White

      CB

      LSU

      This pick is assuming the Dolphins re-sign Kenny Stills -- otherwise they draft a receiver.
    23. Corey Davis

      WR

      Western Michigan

      Projected trade to Titans
      (Projected trade down with Giants for No. 18 pick) Marcus Mariota gets a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver.
    24. Gareon Conley

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Conley is a fine press corner who has the potential to play off in man-to-man coverage.
    25. Cam Robinson

      OT

      Alabama

      The Texans' offensive line needs to be strengthened.
    26. Tim Williams

      DE

      Alabama

      The Seahawks add the second-best pass rusher in this draft.
    27. Deshaun Watson

      QB

      Clemson

      The Chiefs take their quarterback of the future. Watson can sit behind Alex Smith.
    28. Adoree' Jackson

      CB

      USC

      The Cowboys will lose one or two cornerbacks in free agency.
    29. T.J. Watt

      LB

      Wisconsin

      Peppers is getting older and the Packers will probably look for a young pass rusher. Watt will be fastest riser this spring.
    30. Jabrill Peppers

      LB

      Michigan

      The Steelers take the most versatile athlete in the draft to fill their safety need.
    31. DeShone Kizer

      QB

      Notre Dame

      Projected trade to Bills
      (Projected trade up with Falcons) The Bills get back into Round 1 and take their quarterback of the future.
    32. David Njoku

      TE

      Miami

      "Trader Bill" not likely to stay here, but the Patriots could lose Martellus Bennett in free agency.
