Ten weeks out from the 2019 NFL Draft, I'm taking my first crack at predicting how Round 1 will play out. Quarterbacks? Yeah, I have four of them flying off the board in an eight-pick span. Quarterback hunters? Oh, yeah -- this draft class is fully stocked, as you can see in my initial forecast of the first 32 selections ...
The Cardinals must get the absolute best player in the draft. Bosa is just that, adding significant talent to this roster.
The 49ers get the kind of edge rusher they need. Another first-rounder gives them one of the best young D-line units in the league.
As a talented and explosive pass rusher, Gary addresses the Jets' top priority on defense.
Pass rushers aren't hard to come by in this draft class. Oakland finds a natural in Ferrell.
This pick is solely to help Jameis Winston. Bruce Arians loves to pair a downhill running game with his play-action passing concepts.
The Jags have an opportunity to get the next Patrick Mahomes. Murray is an explosive playmaker who will fit in well with a good defense.
Detroit fills an edge-rushing need with a talented prospect whose stock rose at the Senior Bowl.
This offseason is all about building around Josh Allen. And this big, talented receiver is the perfect fit.
The Broncos continue to draft quarterbacks until they get it right. Jones is a big, athletic signal-caller who can make all the throws.
With the hiring of Zac Taylor, Cincy's emphasis will be on protecting Andy Dalton.
The Packers need an edge presence. Why not grab the player who just broke the FBS record for career sacks?
With the (possible) departure of Ryan Tannehill, Miami must address this position. Lock has the quick release everyone is looking for.
With the (potential) loss of free agent Grady Jarrett, Dan Quinn adds the best interior lineman in the draft.
Taylor is a big tackle who can immediately help an offensive line that was plagued by injuries in 2018.
Williams is a stud lineman who will help solidify this offensive line -- and protecting Baker Mayfield is a must.
Speed, speed, speed. Brown's an explosive playmaker who will open up this offense.
White is the perfect fit for this Steelers defense. He can do everything exceptionally well.
With most of the top edge rushers off the board, Seattle gets a dominant force for their interior defensive line.
With Terrell Suggs set to hit free agency at age 36, Baltimore needs some young juice off the edge. Polite is capable of providing consistent QB pressure with his explosiveness and burst.
The Texans have to remake their offensive line, and Howard could be the starting piece to build around.
The Raiders add a top-notch cornerback to help shore up the back end of the defense.
Lawrence is a big, talented player who will alleviate pressure on Fletcher Cox.
With the possible departure of Jared Cook in free agency, Oakland hits with Fant, a versatile tight end who prevents mismatch problems for opposing defenses.
Bush fits the ideal mold for Gus Bradley's defense, and a sideline-to-sideline playmaker is a must for this unit.
The Chiefs get a top cornerback -- a position in which they were lacking in 2018 -- with really good ball skills.
Wilkins will help the Packers generate a pass rush with his explosive ability in tight spaces.
The Rams add depth to a position where teams need at least three viable options. Baker's ability to play press is why I like him here.
