The top three

Joe Burrow, Heisman Trophy winner, and quarterback of the National Champion LSU Tigers is going first overall to the Cincinnati Bengals. Washington is up next, with what should be a no-brainer pick, Ohio State defensive end Chase Young. There is a growing sense that the Skins could either make Tua Tagovailoa their pick and send last year’s first-rounder Dennis Haskins packing or trade down to fifth or sixth.

If Washington does what is expected and draft Young, Detroit is up next. The Lions have an opportunity to draft the best cornerback coming out of college since Patrick Peterson in 2011, Jeff Okudah from Ohio State. They already traded away three-time Pro-Bowl corner Darius Slay, so Detroit is almost locked in on Okudah. That is unless they get an offer they can’t refuse.

This brings up the New York Giants. For what Big Blue needs from this draft, they can trade down. The Miami Dolphins (5th overall), Los Angeles Chargers (6th), and maybe Las Vegas Raiders (12th) will be courting Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman to ensure they get the quarterback their team wants from one of Tagovialoa, Justin Herbert, or Jordan Love.

Miami and Vegas each have two first-round picks, The Fins have fifth and 18th picks, While the Raiders hold 12 and 19. Will Miami give up so much to move up one spot? Does Gettleman feel good about dropping all the way to 12th? Those are questions that will be answered closer to draft day.

For now, we have the draft order holding as is. Let’s see who the mock drafters choose as favorites this time around.
