1. Cleveland Browns – Sam Darnold

It sounds like the Browns will miss out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, so they are inclined to take a QB #1 overall. With three or four possible QBs going in this slot, I have the Browns taking their best-fit at QB. Josh Rosen clearly would like to stay away from the Browns and we don’t want an Eli Manning situation and we have seen the big armed QB with great tangibles fail (Deshone Kizer), so we don’t need to go that route with Josh Allen. And lord knows that we have seen the undersized Heisman winner in a spread offense (Johnny Manziel), so I’d suggest staying away from Baker Mayfield, at least with the #1 pick. Darnold did not throw at the Combine and, in my opinion, slightly underperformed in the athletic drills, but still remains the best and safest QB on the board for the Browns.

4. Cleveland Browns – Minkah Fitzpatrick

The Browns ideally would have Saquon Barkley fall into their laps with this pick to be a running mate in the backfield with their new QB for the next 10 years. However, after such a dominant performance in the Combine, this mock has Barkley drafted before the Browns could select him. So the Browns take the best player on the board and the best defensive player in the draft, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and in two picks the Browns have found their leaders on defense and offense for the next 10 years.

5. Denver Broncos – Josh Allen

It seems as if Denver will also miss out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes with him possibly going to the Jets in this mock draft. So John Elway will draft a big and strong QB with an arm that would remind many of Elway himself. Allen will have time to learn from playing against one of the best defenses in the NFL everyday and eventually will take the reigns as the Broncos’ franchise QB.

15. Arizona – Billy Price

Arizona, in desperate need of revamping their offense, will hold out another year of selecting a QB in favor of protecting their QB with Billy Price. Price will be the best OL in this draft when it is all set and done. He is vastly experienced and he can and is willing to play multiple positions on the offensive line. With athleticism, size, versatility and experience, Price will turn out to be a Pro Bowler in his first season, Mark these words.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers – Marcus Allen

The Steelers do not have a lot of weaknesses on their star-studded team, but secondary help, especially at safety, is much needed if they are going to win their seventh Super Bowl. If giving up 45 points to Blake Bortles in a shocking divisional round upset wasn’t enough evidence, the Steelers need a safety. Enter Marcus Allen. The in-state product was one of the leaders of the Nittany Lion defense and will fit perfectly alongside the likes of Artie Burns, Joe Haden, and Sean Davis.
