The NFL Draft is the step that every franchise tries to build on, to grow as a better team. Losing teams are rewarded with high draft picks to select the best players in College Football. Now these 32 NFL teams are ready to pick their next franchise players for the future.
First 15 Draft Picks
1. Arizona Cardinals: Nick Bosa, Ohio State, Defensive End
Bosa is a First-Team All-Big Ten, Big Ten Champion, and is an ESPN Freshman All-American. He is by far the best player in this draft class and is too good to pass up on.
2. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Allen: Kentucky, Linebacker/Defensive End
Allen could really help the 49ers build a really good pass rushing core with the Niners pick last year Solomon Thomas. Especially as the Niners were ranked the 19th best pass rushing team, Allen would help improve that pass rushing core drastically. Also, Allen fits in with the Niners defensive set-up.
3. New York Jets: Quinnen Williams: Alabama, Defensive End
With Williams skill at the defensive tackle position and the Jets need for defensive pass-rushers, Allen would be a real help for the Jets defense.
4. Oakland Raiders: Rashan Gary: Michigan, Defensive Tackle
Since the Raiders have lost Khalil Mack, they have needed immediate help on defense. Rashan Gary would really help bulk up the defensive for the Raiders and give them a physical presence on the defensive line.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Byron Murphy: Washington, Cornerback
The Bucs have been struggling with the cornerback position and did not draft any cornerbacks in last years draft. This is their chance to get the best-graded cornerback in this years draft class. Even though Murphy is on the smaller side, he has great ball skills and is good at reading and making plays.
6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins: Ohio State, Quarterback
The New York Giants really need a quarterback especially when Eli Manning is aging. The Giants need to find a quarterback fast and Haskins would be a good quarterback who could start immediately. Also, Haskins and the Giants is a new star running back Saquon Barkley with be a good duo to watch.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeffery Simmons: Mississippi, Defensive Tackle
Simmons is one of the top-ranked defensive tackles in this draft class. With Malik Jackson and Marcell Dareus most likely leaving the team, Simmons would easily fill in their positions.
8. Detroit Lions: Clelin Ferrell: Clemson, Defensive End
The Lions are working on building their defense and Ferrell would be a great addition to their defensive line. Also with a lot of the Defensive-lineman Lions players in question with their future on the team, Ferrell would replace them and would fit with Lions defense.
9. Buffalo Bills: Jonah Williams: Alabama, Offensive Line
Williams is a really solid tackle who is very versatile and would do a really good job protecting their new and young quarterback Josh Allen.
10. Denver Broncos: Kyler Murray, Quarterback
Murray is a Heisman winner and is a very talented quarterback. The Broncos have been searching for a Qb for a long time but have not found a long term quarterback. Murray would fit in with the Broncos playbook better and is a very talented Qb.
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Greedy Williams: LSU, Cornerback
The Bengals need a cornerback after being ranked last in pass defense in the whole league. Williams is a top-ranked quarterback and would be helpful for the Bengals.
12. Green Bay Packers: Montez Sweat: Mississippi State, Outside Linebacker
Sweat is a very talented player with a mix of speed and skill, he would be ideal for the Packers.
13. Miami Dolphins: Drew Lock: Missouri, Quarterback
The Miami Dolphins have a problem finding a quarterback for year but adding a young and solid Quarterback would really help them create a more balanced offensive scheme.
14. Atlanta Falcons: Ed Oliver: Houston, Defensive Tackle
Oliver would really fit perfectly into the Falcons defensive scheme. Oliver has great movement skills and is very strong. He would fit into the Falcons 4-3 defense.
15. Washington Redskins: Daniel Jones: Duke, Quarterback
If the Redskins don’t take anyone in free agency, they need to take a quarterback in the first round. When a lot of teams are in need of a quarterback, the Redskins need to pick a QB as fast as possible. Daniel Jones is a solid QB who still needs help but it is a talented quarterback.
16. Carolina Panthers: Garrett Bradbury: NC State, Center
17. Cleveland Browns: Devin White: LSU, Linebacker
18. Minnesota Vikings: Tennessee Titans: T.J. Hockenson: Iowa, Tight End
