1. Arizona Cardinals — Kyler Murray, QB (Oklahoma)

1. Arizona Cardinals — Kyler Murray, QB (Oklahoma)

Experts: 9 of 9

Other possibilities: N/A

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "His diminutive size is the biggest question mark in this draft, but he's got the playmaking talent, arm strength, and speed to become a superstar."

2. San Francisco 49ers — Nick Bosa, Edge (Ohio State)

2. San Francisco 49ers — Nick Bosa, Edge (Ohio State)

Experts: 7 of 9

Other possibilities: Quinnen Williams, DL (Alabama)

Key expert quote: From Kiper: "Best. Player. Available. Bosa is the No. 1 prospect in this class, and he'll help off the edge in any defense."

3. New York Jets — Josh Allen, Edge (Kentucky)

3. New York Jets — Josh Allen, Edge (Kentucky)

Experts: 5 of 9

Other possibilities: Nick Bosa, Edge (Ohio State); Ed Oliver, DT (Houston)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "Josh Allen had a fantastic senior season as well as a strong combine and remains one of the best edge rushers in this class. With needs at edge rusher for the Jets, this is a no-brainer."

4. Oakland Raiders — Quinnen Williams, DL (Alabama)

4. Oakland Raiders — Quinnen Williams, DL (Alabama)

Experts: 5 of 9

Other possibilities: Josh Allen, Edge (Kentucky); Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Slippery interior menace who combines physicality, burst, and violent hands to discard blocks and get into the backfield."

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — TIE: Devin White, LB (LSU), Ed Oliver, DT (Houston)

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — TIE: Devin White, LB (LSU), Ed Oliver, DT (Houston)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Quinnen Williams, DL (Alabama); Josh Allen, Edge (Kentucky); Devin White, LB (LSU)

Key expert quote: From Casserly: "He's an instinctive football player who can make plays from sideline to sideline."

6. New York Giants — No consensus

6. New York Giants — No consensus

Experts: N/A

Other possibilities: Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama); Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State); Dwayne Haskins, QB (Ohio State); Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Smooth operator who combines strong hands with great footwork; could dominate at either tackle or guard."

7. Jacksonville Jaguars — Jawaan Taylor, OT (Florida)

7. Jacksonville Jaguars — Jawaan Taylor, OT (Florida)

Experts: 4 of 9

Other possibilities: Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State); Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama); T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa)

Key expert quote: From Trapasso: "Doug Marrone and Co. in Jacksonville very well could be enamored with Taylor's physicality and run-blocking prowess along with steady play as a pass protector."

8. Detroit Lions — Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State)

8. Detroit Lions — Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa); Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State); Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama)

Key expert quote: From Reuter: "Signing Trey Flowers was a smart move but adding Sweat gives the team a dynamic duo on the outside."

9. Buffalo Bills — Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State)

9. Buffalo Bills — Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa); Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State); Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "It's been popular to have the Bills target a defensive lineman here but offensive line makes a lot of sense too with second-year quarterback Josh Allen. Dillard is the best pass-blocking tackle in this draft and Allen was sacked 28 times in 12 games as a rookie."

10. Denver Broncos — Drew Lock, QB (Missouri)

10. Denver Broncos — Drew Lock, QB (Missouri)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Devin Bush, LB (Michigan); Devin White, LB (LSU); T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "John Elway has reportedly been smitten with Lock since the fall. After back-to-back losing seasons, Elway hopes he's finally found his long-term franchise quarterback."

11. Cincinnati Bengals — Dwayne Haskins, QB (Ohio State)

11. Cincinnati Bengals — Dwayne Haskins, QB (Ohio State)

Experts: 4 of 9

Other possibilities: Devin Bush, LB (Michigan); Devin White, LB (LSU); Jawaan Taylor, OT (Florida)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Pocket passer who combines size and arm talent with quality decision-making, but who has to prove he can excel when pressured."

12. Green Bay Packers — T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa)

12. Green Bay Packers — T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Noah Fant, TE (Iowa); Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State); Cody Ford, OT (Oklahoma)

Key expert quote: From Kadar: "Michigan linebacker Devin Bush has become hot name at No. 12, but it will be hard to pass on Hockenson if he's available. If there is continued uncertainty with Green Bay's receivers, Hockenson can take a lot of the pressure off."

13. Miami Dolphins — Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State)

13. Miami Dolphins — Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson); Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan); Jawaan Taylor, OT (Florida)

Key expert quote: From Trapasso: "Whichever rookie quarterback takes the reins in 2020 for Miami will be very grateful the Dolphins picked this pass-blocking wizard the year before."

14. Atlanta Falcons — Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson)

14. Atlanta Falcons — Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson); Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State); Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama)

Key expert quote: From Kiper: "I'm running to the podium if I'm the GM of the Falcons and Wilkins is still available. He could be a steal."

15. Washington Redskins — Drew Lock, QB (Missouri)

15. Washington Redskins — Drew Lock, QB (Missouri)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Devin Bush, LB (Michigan); Marquise Brown, WR (Oklahoma); Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)

Key expert quote: From Kadar: "Lock is one of the more controversial players in the first round of the draft. He's almost certainly going in the first 32 picks, but where is difficult to peg. Washington makes sense because of Alex Smith's injury and Case Keenum and Colt McCoy are average, at best. Lock can be the team's future."

16. Carolina Panthers — No consensus

16. Carolina Panthers — No consensus

Experts: N/A

Other possibilities: Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan); Cody Ford, OT (Oklahoma); Jawaan Taylor, OT (Florida); Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State); Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson)

Key expert quote: From Kadar: "The Panthers have never been averse to gambling on potential high in the draft. Sometimes it works (Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey), and sometimes it doesn't (Vernon Butler). Gary is a big risk, but one the Panthers could take because they desperately need pass-rush help."

17. New York Giants (via Browns) — Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)

17. New York Giants (via Browns) — Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Devin White, LB (LSU); Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan); Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson)

Key expert quote: From Trapasso: "The David Cutcliffe connection plays a big role in Jones landing with the Giants to be Eli's heir apparent."

18. Minnesota Vikings — Cody Ford, OT (Oklahoma)

18. Minnesota Vikings — Cody Ford, OT (Oklahoma)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson); Chris Lindstron, G (Boston College); Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "Kirk Cousins had an uneven debut season for the Vikings. And while he deserved some of the blame, Minnesota's porous offensive line did him no favors. Ford is coming off a strong season for the Sooners and he'll be a welcome addition to an O-line that wasn't even replacement level in '18."

19. Tennessee Titans — Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State)

19. Tennessee Titans — Brian Burns, OLB (Florida State)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan); Deandre Baker, CB (Georgia); Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson)

Key expert quote: From Reuter: "Signing Cameron Wake was good for this year but Burns' skills will be valued in 2020 and beyond."

20. Pittsburgh Steelers — Devin Bush, LB (Michigan)

20. Pittsburgh Steelers — Devin Bush, LB (Michigan)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: T.J. Hockenson, TE (Iowa); Rock Ya-Sin, CB (Temple); Byron Murphy, CB (Washington)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "The Steelers need help at edge rusher and cornerback but if Bush, with his 4.44 40, is still on the board, they have to take him. He has sideline-to-sideline speed and can wreak havoc in the run game, rush the passer, and smoothly drop into coverage."

21. Seattle Seahawks — Jeffery Simmons, DT (Mississippi State)

21. Seattle Seahawks — Jeffery Simmons, DT (Mississippi State)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Rashan Gary, DL (Michigan); Dalton Risner, OT (Kansas State); Jerry Tillery, DT (Notre Dame); Cody Ford, OT (Oklahoma)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Tremendously athletic interior player who has the talent to go in the top 10, but his history of violence and recent left ACL tear could send him tumbling down draft boards."

22. Baltimore Ravens — D.K. Metcalf, WR (Ole Miss)

22. Baltimore Ravens — D.K. Metcalf, WR (Ole Miss)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: A.J. Brown, WR (Ole Miss); Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson); Erik McCoy, C/G (Texas A&M)

Key expert quote: From Wilson: "Metcalf, who blazed a 4.33 40-yard dash time at the combine, has game-changing talent. He would add another dimension to the Ravens' run-heavy offense."

23. Houston Texans — Greedy Williams, CB (LSU)

23. Houston Texans — Greedy Williams, CB (LSU)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Erik McCoy, C/G (Texas A&M); Noah Fant, TE (Iowa); Rock Ya-Sin, CB (Temple)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Scrappy, long-limbed cover corner who has great instincts and the ability to turn and locate the ball in the air."

24. Oakland Raiders (via Chicago) — Irv Smith Jr., TE (Alabama)

24. Oakland Raiders (via Chicago) — Irv Smith Jr., TE (Alabama)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Noah Fant, TE (Iowa); Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson); Josh Jacobs, RB (Alabama)

25. Philadelphia Eagles — Marquise Brown, WR (Oklahoma)

25. Philadelphia Eagles — Marquise Brown, WR (Oklahoma)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Montez Sweat, Edge (Mississippi State); Darnell Savage Jr., S (Maryland); Devin Bush, LB (Michigan)

Key expert quote: From Jeremiah: "It would make sense for the Eagles to add a receiver because I don't think DeSean Jackson's a long-term solution and they could lose Nelson Agholor next year, as he's due to hit free agency."

26. Indianapolis Colts — A.J. Brown, WR (Ole Miss)

26. Indianapolis Colts — A.J. Brown, WR (Ole Miss)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: D.K. Metcalf, WR (Ole Miss); Christian Wilkins, DT (Clemson); Lawrence, DT (Clemson)

Key expert quote: From Kadar: "The Colts would love to see a pass rusher drop. If that doesn't happen, they could get a wide receiver to pair with T.Y. Hilton to help Andrew Luck. Brown can play the slot or on the outside, and is physical after the catch."

27. Oakland Raiders (via Cowboys) — Byron Murphy, CB (Washington)

27. Oakland Raiders (via Cowboys) — Byron Murphy, CB (Washington)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Deandre Baker, CB (Georgia); Irv Smith Jr., TE (Alabama); Josh Jacobs, RB (Alabama); Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson)

Key expert quote: From Reuter: "Gareon Conley gets a strong partner in Murphy, who possesses the best ballhawking skills in the class."

28. Los Angeles Chargers — Dexter Lawrence, DT (Clemson)

28. Los Angeles Chargers — Dexter Lawrence, DT (Clemson)

Experts: 3 of 9

Other possibilities: Jeffery Simmons, DT (Mississippi State); Chris Lindstron, G (Boston College); Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)

Key expert quote: From Kiper: "I love this fit. Nose tackle is a huge need for the Chargers, and Lawrence is the best one in this class."

29. Kansas City Chiefs — Garrett Bradbury, C (NC State)

29. Kansas City Chiefs — Garrett Bradbury, C (NC State)

Experts: 4 of 9

Other possibilities: Nasir Adderlay, S (Delaware); Byron Murphy, CB (Washington); Greedy Williams, CB (LSU)

Key expert quote: From Kelly: "Athletic zone center whose quickness and balance allow him to seal defenders in the run game and anchor in pass protection."

30. Green Bay Packers (via Saints) — Noah Fant, TE (Iowa)

30. Green Bay Packers (via Saints) — Noah Fant, TE (Iowa)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Marquise Brown, WR (Oklahoma); Dalton Risner, OT (Kansas State); Taylor Rapp, S (Washington)

Key expert quote: From Reuter: "Matt LaFleur leaned heavily on three-tight end sets in Tennessee last year, so it won't be a surprise if he wants to add an athletic receiver to play alongside Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis."

31. Los Angeles Rams — Elgton Jenkins, C (Mississippi State)

31. Los Angeles Rams — Elgton Jenkins, C (Mississippi State)

Experts: 2 of 9

Other possibilities: Jerry Tillery, DT (Notre Dame); Elgton Jenkins, C (Mississippi State);

Key expert quote: From Jeremiah: "Jenkins is another player who's made his way into the first-round conversation. Teams love his strength and power inside. He can play any of the three interior positions."

32. New England Patriots — No consensus

32. New England Patriots — No consensus

Experts: N/A

Other possibilities: Deebo Samuel, WR (South Carolina); A.J. Brown, WR (Ole Miss); Daniel Jones, QB (Duke); Drew Lock, QB (Missouri)

Key expert quote: From Trapasso: "Samuel is a crafty route runner who excels after the catch in the short-to-intermediate portions of the field. Ideal skill set to flourish in New England."
