1. LAR: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
The Rams will undoubtedly take a quarterback here. You just can't justify giving up all those draft picks otherwise. The rumor is they'll taking Goff, but you shouldn't believe anything you hear from now until the draft from any team. I personally believe Wentz is not the best QB in this draft, nevertheless, he is viewed as having the most upside, which is what the Rams should be looking for.
2. PHI: Jared Goff, QB, Cal*
The Eagles have publicly stated they will draft a QB here. With Wentz gone, Goff is their man.
3. SD: Jalen Ramsey, DB, Florida State*
Ramsey is the best player in this draft and the Chargers have holes to fill in their secondary. He's the right pick here no matter who was on the board.
4. DAL: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State*
Bosa will be the first DE off the board. Greg Hardy clearly didn't work out but it's now time to look to the draft. They need a legitimate DE.
5. JAX: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss*
Before the Rams traded up, there was no chance Tunsil fell this far. However, here he is. He's just too talented to fall any further and you can't go wrong with an elite level OT.
6. BAL: Myles Jack, OLB, UCLA*
Linebacker may not be the most pressing need for Baltimore, nonetheless, they are all about taking the best player available and they never hesitate to draft another star linebacker.
7. SF: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis*
No team needs a quarterback quite like the 49ers. If rumors are true that Colin Kaepernick is Denver bound, Blaine Gabbert will sit a top their depth chart. Lynch is every bit as good as Goff and Wentz.
8. CLE: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State*
I hate this pick, but Cleveland could end up drafting Elliott with the eighth-overall pick. He's a very talented player, still, he's not Todd Gurley.
9. TB: DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon
This is the dream scenario for Tampa Bay. Prior to the L.A./TEN trade I had Buckner much higher. Now he falls in the lap of the Bucs. He's the best DE in this draft.
10. NYG: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss*
The Giants need a WR2 to lineup opposite Odell Beckham Jr. Rueben Randle is gone and Victor Cruz is done. Treadwell is a nice fit in New York.
11. CHI: Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida*
The Bears need help at CB and Hargreaves is technically the most gifted CB in this draft. Despite his lack of height, his talent makes up for it.
12. NO: Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson*
Lawson has a lot scouts divided in this draft. Some believe he's a top five player, while others don't believe he belongs in the first round at all. It only takes one team and I find it hard to believe he falls even into the 20s. The Saints will snatch him up at pick No. 12.
13. MIA: Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State*
The Dolphins desperately need to improve their LB corps. Lee is not only the best player available, but fills a pressing need for Miami.
14. OAK: William Jackson III, CB, Houston
It's hard to decide how the teams rank Jackson, Alexander and Apple. I'm guessing Jackson will be viewed as the top candidate of the three by most. The Raiders suddenly don't have a ton of holes to fill anymore after drafting him.
15. TEN: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame*
Tennessee traded back, got all those picks and still gets a top OT. He may not have as much upside as Tunsil, nevertheless, he completely vindicates the Titans' decision to trade back.
16. DET: Jack Conklin, OT, Mich State*
The Lions have holes to feel on the OL. With Megatron gone, Matthew Stafford will not have his to bail him out under pressure and will need help from his rushing attack. A strong OL remedies all those issues.
