With a franchise quarterback for the first time in decades, Cleveland looks like a team on the rise. Baker Mayfield, Kareem Hunt, Nick Chubb, Jarvis Landry, and David Njoku will be the heart of the Browns offense, but their defense is a unit with several difference makers as well.
The Vikings have to be disappointed with the team’s overall performance last year. They must find a way to get Kirk Cousins to live up to his contract and grabbing a player like Bradbury could be the trick. Bradbury will be a plug and play guy for Minnesota and I have no doubt he will be a 10-year stud in the middle for the Vikings.
Marcus Mariota has been injured numerous times over the last several seasons and that is in large part to the play of the team’s offensive line. If they continue to have Mariota as their quarterback, the Titans need to shore up the offensive line to give him ample time to pass. In addition, the team needs to build up the line to ensure Derrick Henry has a high level of success.
The Steelers must regain their strong defensive identity and they opt to add the physical corner out of Georgia. Baker faced stellar WR play in the SEC every week and withstood the task. He will have a chance to start Week 1 and help a defensive unit that has been reeling since the loss of Ryan Shazier.
Earl Thomas is set to walk in free agency, leaving the once legendary “Legion of Boom” in ruins. Seattle needs to continue to overhaul their secondary and adding one of the top safeties in the class will help them do that. Adderley is a playmaker on the back end, something the Seahawks desperately need.
Lamar Jackson will have to adjust his play to get this man the ball. My WR1 is an absolute beast after the catch. Butler would be a great fit for an offense that requires a big bodied receiver that can go up and get some 50/50 balls.
It’ll come down to Josh Jacobs and Hakeem Butler, but I believe the positional value is much higher on Butler.
Murphy is a big, long corner that could benefit the Houston secondary. Up front, the Texans have J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus, and company. On the back end, Tyrann Mathieu and Kareem Jackson are free agents and the team will need some help in the secondary. Murphy would help fill that void.
With their second pick of the first round thanks to the trade with the Raiders, Arizona can take another position of need (which is nearly every position). This time they add to the offensive side of the ball with N’Keal Harry.
For months Harry was my top wide receiver in the class. He has a blend of size, agility, hands, and route running that makes him very dangerous. Adding Harry helps new head coach Kliff Kingsbury build his offense on the outside and give whoever the starting quarterback is another weapon.
