Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Cleveland needs to land their franchise quarterback to be competitive. Giving Hue Jackson, a guy who is a proven winner, a great passer and a pure athlete will give their football team a start.

Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

The 49ers are starting fresh as both their head coach, and general manager has been fired after their two win season; with new staff, bringing in a fresh quarterback who is very efficient in every regard seems appropriate.

DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

The Bears need a franchise quarterback to compete in their division. Kizer is a two-way threat that has a strong arm to bring a spark to the Bears offense.

 

 

 

Image result for jaguars logo 500x5004.) Jacksonville Jaguars 

Myles Garrett, OLB, Texas A&M

The Jaguars need help at all skill positions; which makes this spot very trade-friendly for a team to jump up to get a guy they want, and for the Jaguars to collect as many valuable picks as possible. A guy with the pass-rushing abilities of Garrett is going to be very hard to pass up, if he happens to still be on the board for the Jags as they desperately need someone to get the opposing quarterback.

5.)  Tennessee Titans

Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State

Hooker is a young player with tremendous upside. The speed is off the charts, as is his ball skills which makes him a very possible top five selection, and a great fit in Tennessee who needs help in the secondary.

Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

The Panthers who had 15 wins in a season they appeared in the Super Bowl prior to this season. The Panthers had a very disappointing 2016 campaign. The loss of star cornerback Josh Norman really took a blow to Carolina’s secondary, and defense as a whole. Lattimore is player with ideal size, and versatility to revive the secondary for the Panthers.

 

 

 

Image result for bengals logo 500x5009.) Cincinnati Bengals

Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama

Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan

Image result for saints logo 500x50011.) New Orleans Saints

When the Cardinals were in the NFC Championship game a season prior to this one, their pass offense was one of the top in the league. They need a big, physical guy like Williams to bring a spark back to the offense, and a great complement to an aging Larry Fitzgerald.

 

 

 

Image result for colts logo 500x50014.) Indianapolis Colts

Image result for eagles logo 500x50015.) Philadelphia Eagles

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

The Eagles are in desperate need of a workhorse running back that can take pressure off of their second year quarterback, but most importantly bring a huge threat to opposing defenses, as Fournette is a downhill, player with incredible upside.

Image result for lions logo 500x50021.) Detroit Lions
