  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    Ohio St.
    If Josh Rosen really is head coach Kliff Kingsbury's guy at QB, then picking the best player in the draft makes sense here.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    DT
    Alabama
    Williams and DeForest Buckner will cause major headaches for opposing offenses.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    EDGE
    Kentucky
    Not only is Allen a fantastic pass rusher, but he can move well in space to make plays against the run and in coverage.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    DE
    Michigan
    Even though Gary had just 3.5 sacks for the Wolverines this past season, he will be a powerful asset for the Raiders on the edge.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    RB
    Alabama
    If I were projecting trades, I'd move the Jaguars or Dolphins into this spot so they could get their favorite quarterback. The Bucs could then nab their new bell-cow back in Jacobs with one of those later selections.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    QB
    Ohio St.
    Haskins is a pocket passer who can effectively move the Giants' offense after 2019, the final year of Eli Manning's contract.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    QB
    Oklahoma
    The Jaguars tried the prototype prospect in Blake Bortles; now they take a strong-armed and athletic passer who will present big problems for opposing defenses.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    DE
    Clemson
    Ferrell's length and motor give him a real chance to be an excellent three-down player at the next level.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    TE
    Iowa
    Hockenson will be a welcome addition to Buffalo's offense as a safety valve for second-year quarterback Josh Allen and a devastating blocker for the running game.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    T
    Florida
    Denver must improve the offensive line so Joe Flacco can be at his best. Taylor's power combines with Garett Bolles' toughness to form strong bookends up front.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    The Bengals' pass defense was poor in 2018, so the team needs a playmaker like Williams in the secondary.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    EDGE
    Florida
    The Packers could part ways with free agent-to-be Clay Matthews. Their need for an explosive pass rusher is paramount.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    QB
    Missouri
    It appears Ryan Tannehill is on the way out. The Dolphins could trade up to ensure they get the new signal-caller they want, whether it is Lock, Murray or Haskins.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    G
    Alabama
    The Falcons line up Williams at guard to help in pass pro and bring some balance to an offense that just ranked 27th in rushing yards.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    QB
    Duke
    The Redskins apparently expect Alex Smith to miss the 2019 season. Jones should grade well in team interviews. Throwing well during workouts could cement his spot in the first round.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    LB
    LSU
    Fourteen years after selecting Thomas Davis in the middle of the first round, Carolina finds his replacement in the rangy White.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    DT
    Houston
    Projected trade to Browns
    Oliver's combine performance is key to his draft stock. If he is longer and bigger than expected, then he will go high. If not, he will end up a mid-first-round bargain for someone willing to trust the film more than than the tape measure.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    DT
    Clemson
    Wilkins really should go higher, as he is an athletic player with scheme versatility -- and has the sort of positive character every team wants in a first-round pick. We'll see if a strong combine forces teams to ignore other roster needs to bring him in.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    EDGE
    Mississippi St.
    Sweat's a strong and steady outside performer who will help 2018 second-round pick Harold Landry replace the retired Brian Orakpo and free agent-to-be Derrick Morgan, should he depart.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    WR
    Oklahoma
    Antonio Brown has said goodbye to Steeler Nation. Marquise would be a nice fit, using his speed and quickness to elude defenders as Antonio did in Pittsburgh for nine years.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    S
    Mississippi St.
    Assuming Earl Thomas does not return to Seattle in 2019, Abram steps in Day 1 as a leader and playmaker.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    WR
    Mississippi
    If Metcalf's medical history is not an issue, he could go higher due to his ability to make big plays downfield. For now, I'll say the Ravens take a shot on a potential home run hitter for Lamar Jackson following the release of Michael Crabtree.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    T
    Washington St.
    Dillard's smallish build (for a tackle) and unwavering ability to protect his quarterback will remind Texans fans of longtime starter Duane Brown.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Georgia
    Free agency could raid Oakland's talent at cornerback. Baker brings consistency and competitive fire to the position.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    WR
    N.C. State
    The Eagles' receiving corps could look completely different in 2019 between the loss and gain of free agents -- and potentially picking up a young playmaker like Harmon.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    DT
    Clemson
    GM Chris Ballard says his team must continue to improve up front. Lawrence will be tough to move from the middle of the Colts' D-line.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    G
    Boston College
    New Oakland GM Mike Mayock taps a hard-nosed player from his alma mater to bolster the offensive line.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    T
    Kansas St.
    New England exposed the right side of the Chargers' line in the Divisional Round. Risner is not massive, but he's tough to beat and could play multiple positions.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    CB
    Washington
    Murphy is slight, but is not afraid to mix it up with larger receivers and is a willing hitter.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    TE
    Alabama
    Jimmy Graham will likely be back in Green Bay, but Aaron Rodgers needs another playmaker at the tight end position.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    EDGE
    Louisiana Tech
    Ferguson's pass-rush ability makes him a good fit for the Rams if they don't retain Dante Fowler.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    DT
    Mississippi St.
    The Patriots are willing to take chances on players with medical issues (Rob Gronkowski, Marcus Cannon, etc.). Simmons' ACL tear may not be a deal-breaker for them.
