USC. Sam Darnold. 4. player. 53. . Quarterback

The Browns finally get their guy. Instead of taking Sam Darnold at number one, they opt to wait. The strategy pays off because they get him at No. 4. Darnold is one of the best QBs in the class, with no character issues, and all the looks of a franchise QB.

Darnold has the demeanor and calm personality that coaches seem to love and the pressures of being the savior of Cleveland’s QB woes shouldn’t bother him.

The Browns can put Darnold, Barkley, Josh Gordon, and David Njoku together to form one of the league’s youngest and most exciting offenses. (Stephen)

5. player. 16. <strong>(TRADE)</strong> <p><em>Buffalo Receives</em>: 5th,182nd</p> <p><em>Denver Receives</em>: 21st, 22nd, 96th, 2019 2nd round pick</p>. Quarterback. UCLA. Josh Rosen

The Bills get their guy. It may have been costly, but the Bills finally solve the quarterback issue that has been plaguing the franchise since Jim Kelly retired in 1996.

Rosen is as polished of a quarterback as they get. His mechanics and footwork allow him to work the pocket and dissect opposing defenses. He has been called cocky based on some actions during his time at UCLA, but they are not enough to stop the Bills from betting on him.

He will start from day one and make Bills Mafia even rowdier then they are now. (Justin)

player. 30. . Quarterback. Wyoming. Josh Allen. 6

Much like the Bills, the Jets are a team that needs a franchise QB. Josh Allen has all the physical tools to be an elite QB, and had an impressive combine, showing off his rare arm strength and impressive athleticism.

One of the biggest knocks on him is what happens when he is under pressure. His accuracy and throwing platform tend to break down. He also put up pedestrian stats last year at Wyoming, but that could be due in part to a weak supporting cast.

However, the Jets should be very pleased to wait at No. 6 and take who some consider to be the best QB in the draft. (Stephen)
