The Bengals are taking the best player in this draft and their next franchise quarterback. This isn't Akili Smith. Cincinnati gets this pick right and has its generational quarterback for the next decade.
Ron Rivera is the Redskins' new head coach. He didn't draft Dwayne Haskins, which gives him every reason to select Tua Tagovailoa in this spot. But it's hard to see Washington pass up on Young when Jack Del Rio is the defensive coordinator. The Redskins get the generational pass rusher needed in a division with the Eagles and Cowboys offensive lines.
The Giants need an offensive tackle to protect Daniel Jones. Nate Solder is getting paid a lot of money to be average and New York needs another tackle anyway. Dave Gettleman takes the best lineman available in Wills.
The Dolphins don't have to trade any of their first-round picks to move up and get Tua. He'll be there at No. 5, and Miami will use 2020 to develop the most talented quarterback the franchise has employed since Dan Marino (sorry, Ryan Tannehill).
The Chargers appear to have no interest in Jameis Winston or Cam Newton, and I find it hard to believe they will roll into the season with Tyrod Taylor having no competition. Herbert goes over Love here and will compete with Taylor for the starting job.
The Panthers seem to always have an excellent linebacker (is that what we're calling Simmons?) fall into their lap. He's perfect for what Phil Snow will want to run in Carolina, especially since he can play slot cornerback and safety as well.
The Cardinals are loaded with offensive weapons, but Kyler Murray will be running for his life. Becton has the most upside of the "big four" offensive tackles in this draft and his athleticism fits what Arizona does on offense.
The Jaguars need interior defensive line and cornerback help more than a wide receiver, but they make the draft go sideways with the selection of Jeudy. Jacksonville has solid wideouts outside of D.J. Chark, but still want to make Gardner Minshew a thing. Jeudy gives Minshew the best chance to succeed as the starter.
The Browns send a "thank you" card to the Jaguars for taking Jeudy, as that enables them to land Wirfs. They solidify the right side of the line with Wirfs and Jack Conklin, as Cleveland can plug Wirfs at guard to start before an eventual move to tackle if they find another answer on the blindside this offseason.
The Jets lost Robby Anderson in free agency and signed Breshad Perriman to replace him. They still need to add a receiver, even with Derrick Brown still on the board. Joe Douglas has demonstrated he prioritizes the trenches, but there's no way he passes on Lamb.
The 49ers traded DeForest Buckner for the No. 13 pick. Brown falls into San Francisco's lap and the team adds him to an already stacked defensive line. The 49ers get one of the best picks in the draft.
The Buccaneers see Thomas fall to No. 14 after the top wide receivers come off the board. They get their tackle to protect Tom Brady, which is what the franchise desperately needs in order for Brady to win another Super Bowl.
Injuries and all, there's no denying Chaisson's ability to get to the quarterback. The Falcons addressed their pass-rushing deficiency with Dante Fowler and add another sack master in Chaisson. C.J. Henderson is tempting here, but there are corners to be had later.
This is the pick the Dolphins got for Minkah Fitzpatrick and they select -- a safety?! Miami needs help behind Byron Jones and Xavien Howard, and McKinney will lead the safety position on South Beach for years to come.
The Raiders could have traded up to land Henderson (no trades in this mock, remember), but they settle for Fulton. Getting a good cornerback isn't a bad consolation prize for a team that desperately needs a starter here.
Jacksonville drafts the best player available. The Jaguars could use an edge rusher and Yannick Ngakoue isn't playing for them anymore. Jordan Love is tempting, but the Jaguars are still hoping for a first-round pick for Ngakoue at this stage. Plus they are convinced Minshew is going to work (at least this year).
The Eagles love their pass rushers, especially with Jim Schwartz putting a premium on rushing four. Gross-Matos is the long-term solution behind Brandon Graham. Besides, the Eagles don't have much depth behind Graham and Derek Barnett at defensive end. They can get their wide receiver in the second round.
How fortunate are the Patriots to have Love still on the board at No. 23? They get a year to develop him in the offense while finding out if Jarrett Stidham is the truth. Unfortunately, there are no tight ends worth taking in the first round this year.
Don't see how the Saints pass on a linebacker here, especially since they could use a starter to go with an oft-injured group that includes Kiko Alonso and Alex Anzalone. New Orleans should hope Queen is better than Kenneth Murray.
No point to reach for Jefferson at No. 22 when the Vikings can land their wide receiver at No. 25. Jefferson is no field stretcher like Stefon Diggs, but he already is a polished wide receiver. The Vikings could use one of those.
Miami really needs a running back to pair with Jordan Howard. The Dolphins were last in rush yards and 31st in yards per carry in 2019. Why wait until the second round, hoping Taylor falls to them? Taylor is the best player on the board.
The Titans are trying to win a Super Bowl this year. They get the best player on the board in Swift, who will be an excellent change-of-pace back to Henry (who is playing under the franchise tag this year). Swift can also be a long-term solution in case the Titans decide to move on from Henry.
Green Bay has its pick at the wide receiver it wants between Mims, Brandon Aiyuk and Tee Higgins. Mims fits the Packers offense the best of the three, even though they could use a burner on the outside.
