NFL MOCK DRAFT: Giants have big decision to make at No. 2

Free agency has given first-round projections a shake, including a big trade by the Jets to move up to No. 3. Will the Cards or Bills follow suit to grab the QB of their choice?

1. Cleveland Browns

Sam Darnold, QB, USC

We’re still not sure which QB the Browns prefer, but Darnold is the much safer bet than Allen.

2. New York Giants

Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State

Dealing away JPP opens a big hole on their line and Chubb would certainly fill that void.

3. New York Jets

Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

The Jets didn’t move up here to pass on a potential franchise QB. They obviously like each of the Top 3.

4. Cleveland Browns

Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

Barkley is a special talent that will help makeover the Browns’ woeful offence.

5. Denver Broncos

Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

Has shown an improvement in accuracy at the Senior Bowl and his pro day and the Broncos should bite here.

6. Indianapolis Colts

Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame

Could trade down and bank even more picks, but Nelson would make an instant impact on their line.

7. Tampa Bay Bucs

Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama

With needs at both corner and safety, Fitzpatrick’s fall into their lap is very fortuitous.

8. Chicago Bears

Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

With Robinson signed in free agency, the Bears will most likely look to their defence in the draft.

9. San Francisco 49ers

Derwin James, SS, Florida State

Adding Sherman helps the secondary, but getting a safety would help that unit get even stronger.

10. Oakland Raiders

Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State

Defence is certainly a priority for the Raiders and Ward is top corner in the draft.

11. Miami Dolphins

Vita Vea, DT, Washington

Letting Suh walk creates a big hole in the middle of their line that Vea can easily plug up.

12. Buffalo Bills

Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

The Bills get lucky in this mock to land one of the top QBs here, but will likely try their hardest to move up.

13. Washington Redskins

Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

Vea would be a good choice, too, but Smith is a good all-around LB that can help in run defence.

14. Green Bay Packers

Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA

Made some nice splashes on offence in free agency and can address free agency in the draft.

15. Arizona Cardinals

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

Signing Bradford is a good short-term investment, but the Cards need to invest in a QB for the future.

16. Baltimore Ravens

Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

Signing Crabtree is a decent move for now but Ridley could be Flacco’s top target for years to come.

17. Los Angeles Chargers

Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

Got some O-line depth in free agency and could add a wrecker in the middle of the defensive front.

18. Seattle Seahawks

Joshua Jackson, CB, Iowa

It looks like the Seahawks have many needs and Jackson is a great fit for their scheme with his size.

19. Dallas Cowboys

Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State

Lee is getting older and has a poor track record with health. LVE would make a good successor.

20. Detroit Lions

Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan State

New coach Patricia should address a defensive line that couldn’t get it done last year.

21. Cincinnati Bengals

Raashan Evans, LB, Alabama

Trading for Glenn helps out their weak O-line and taking Evans plugs a hole at linebacker.

22. Buffalo Bills

Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU

The recent arrest of 2017 second-rounder Zay Jones should make receiver a position of need.

23. Los Angeles Rams

Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College

Landry could be in much higher demand as one of the better edge rushers in the draft.

24. Carolina Panthers

Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP

Norwell’s departure opens up a hole that can easily be plugged by the mauler Hernandez.

25. Tennessee Titans

Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

The Titans need to rebuild the interior of their line to have consistency in their running game.

26. Atlanta Falcons

Taven Bryan, DT, Florida

Defections from the Falcons defensive line makes this a high priority addition.

27. New Orleans Saints

Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State

After a failed pursuit of Jimmy Graham, the Saints take a potential future star at tight end.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers

Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

Guice is a good option after talks with Bell have stalled and there isn’t a good value pick at LB here.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars

Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

The Jags filled their holes in free agency and take an unprecedented sixth QB of the first round.

30. Minnesota Vikings

Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

Getting another incredible athlete in their secondary would bolster an already-great defence.

31. New England Patriots

Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

As the top OT in the draft, could go much higher, but the Pats get a steal here to replace Solder.

32. Philadelphia Eagles

Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon

The champs have done an excellent job in free agency, but need a good prospect at OT.
