TV Broadcast: ESPN, ABC, NFL Network, ESPN, ESPN Radio

1. Jacksonville Jaguars – Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Urban Meyer is going to get the only guy everyone expects the Jaguars to spend the first overall pick on in the form of Trevor Lawrence. The Jags didn’t go through extensive tanking to let Lawrence escape. A proven winner with a big arm, Lawrence should start right away for the Jags.

2. New York Jets — Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

The Jets surely are looking to get a quarterback at this slot, as they just traded Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers. With the second pick overall pick, it makes sense for the Jets to draft a quarterback and one that’s generally viewed as the best QB in the class not named Trevor Lawrence.

3. San Francisco 49ers — Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

There have been rumors that the 49ers have their eye on Mac Jones. Even though the team still has Jimmy Garoppolo, the Niners seem to be not convinced of their future with him under center.

4. Atlanta Falcons  — Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

Some experts think that the Falcons will get a QB here, but how about just giving Matt Ryan a game-changing weapon in Pitts? A trio of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Pitts should send shivers down the spine of opposing defensive coordinators.

5. Cincinnati Bengals  — Penei Sewell, OL, Oregon

The Bengals need to protect Joe Burrow who saw his rookie season abruptly end with a serious knee injury that he is still recuperating from. Adding Sewell to Cincinnati’s offensive line will give Burrow an elite protector for years to come.

6. Miami Dolphins — Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LS

The Dolphins still have to know what they truly have in Tua Tagovailoa. By drafting Chase, Miami will just have the weapon to help Tagovailoa’s potential. Chase is -700 to be the first wide receiver drafted this year.

7. Detroit Lions  — DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

The Lions are starting anew with a quarterback Jared Goff. However, they just lost Kenny Golladay to free agency in the offseason, leaving Goff without a true WR1. Smith could definitely be that guy for the Lions. Smith’s speed, athleticism, and smarts will all be useful for the Lions’ new-look passing attack.

8. Carolina Panthers  — Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Now that they got Darnold, the Panthers are not really pressed to get a quarterback. Darnold can blossom in a new and less-toxic environment and it’s definitely going to be a big plus for him to have Waddle downfield waiting to take footballs to the end zone.

9. Denver Broncos  — Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

Sure, the Broncos have Drew Lock, but he has not convinced the team that he’s someone worth giving the keys to the franchise under center. If Fields is available at this point of the draft, Denver will take him in a heartbeat.

10. Dallas Cowboys  — Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

The Cowboys look to improve their defense and get Surtain II, who will give Dallas’ secondary a shot in the arm with his IQ and physical presence downfield.
