48. It’s no secret that the Coach Lovie Smith and GM Jason Licht are desperately searching for their franchise quarterback and it looks like that guy will be Jameis Winston. The Buccaneers have already visited with Winston, and while they have also met with Marcus Mariota, it seems that Winston will hear his name called first in the NFL Draft. Winston is the most NFL ready quarterback in this draft and with the weapons that the Buccaneers currently possess, the Buccaneers offense should make major strides next season.. QB. Florida State. Jameis Winston. 1. player

QB. Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 2. player. 35. Sorry Eagles fans. The Titans need a quarterback badly. Incumbent Zach Mettenberger went 0-6 in his rookie year and he can not be seen as a long term answer for the Titans at quarterback. While most question Mariota’s ability to translate to the NFL, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt is known for his ability to work with quarterbacks. The Titans can draft Mariota, start Mettenberger for the first handful of games, while Mariota learns the nuances of the NFL, before handing him the keys to the Titans offense.

player. 52. While Fowler isn’t the highest rated player at this moment, he is the best draft fit for the Jaguars. The Jaguars aren’t really in need of Leonard Williams, regardless of how talented he is, and Fowler Jr. fits perfectly into Gus Bradley’s defense. Fowler was used in a variety of ways during his college career and Bradley loves to use unique blitz packages, which would fully utilize Fowler’s abilities. The fit just seems too perfect to pass on.. OLB. Florida. Dante Fowler Jr.. 3

USC. Leonard Williams. 4. player. 28. Here you go Raiders fans, the player you guys have been clamoring for. Williams might be the most talented player in this year’s draft and, just like last year, the Raiders are getting really lucky that he is falling to them. Along with Khalil Mack, the Raiders will have two cornerstones to build their defense around. . DT
