Levis hasn’t built on an awesome 2021, yet he has all the traits teams want in their franchise quarterbacks today. He can compete with Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield in Year 1 for the starting gig.

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

Indianapolis

Back to the cornerback well for the Packers given the disappointing play from the secondary this season.

POSITION RNK

6th

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

• 6’6″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Texans have to add more defensive line pieces to this roster. Wilson is a large, multidimensional rusher.

Florida

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’8″

/ 359 lbs

The Patriots could use more blocking consistency, and Jones is a Trent Brown type of behemoth on the outside.

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

4th

The Commanders go with a feisty man-to-man corner to add more depth to the secondary.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

At this stage of Round 1, there’s not a quarterback who the Jets feel confident in stepping in and immediately playing better than Zach Wilson, so they go with more offensive line help.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 347 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

More overtly strong blockers in front of Geno Smith. Torrence has been a rock in his debut season with the Gators after transferring from Louisiana.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 265 lbs

The Chargers add one of the cleanest tight end prospects in a while to Justin Herbert’s offense. Giddy up.

Maryland

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

68th

POSITION RNK

11th

Duncan is a dancing bear at tackle and would allow the Titans to continue to deploy their against-the-grain, run-heavy philosophy that works.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 213 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

How about Ika next to D.J. Reader in Cincinnati?

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Boutte has had somewhat of a down year for the Tigers but showed in 2021 he can be a WR1 in the NFL.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 233 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Sanders flies around at the second level, and this selection would allow Micah Parsons to solely man edge-rusher duties.

Pittsburgh

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 280 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Broncos get a penetrating defensive tackle to round out their front.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Bills run this pick to the podium. Smith-Njigba essentially lost his entire 2022 to injury yet was an explosive weapon for Stroud in 2021.

Texas

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

1st

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd
