. QB. Bo Nix. Bo Nix. player. . Oregon. Bo Nix. 45. 12

We've seen the Denver Broncos miss out on both Cousins and Fields, along with Baker Mayfield returning to Tampa. With the next-best options in free agency being guys like Sam Darnold or Jacoby Brissett (among other similar talents) the Broncos reach a bit for a rookie quarterback which Sean Payton can work his magic with. Oregon's Bo Nix is the pick, and while some thought he'd be in the late teens, he goes a few picks sooner to Denver.

QB. . Michael Penix Jr.. . 13. 28. Michael Penix Jr.. Washington. Michael Penix Jr.. player

Let's make this a historic first round, shall we? How about six quarterbacks within the first 13 picks? Hey, we've already established the fact that the bigger quarterback names are already accounted for. So, the Las Vegas Raiders may have no choice but to reach. Washington's Michael Penix Jr. has been labeled a late first or early second-round prospect, but the Raiders ensure they get a guy who can be their shot at a franchise quarterback.

How about another trade? The Seattle Seahawks see value that's too good to pass up.

Seahawks Saints trade

Seattle moves up two spots, while the Saints net a fourth rounder this year.

Olu Fashanu. 14. . . player. Olu Fashanu. 36. Olu Fashanu. OT. Penn State

The Seahawks saw Penn State offensive tackle Olu Fashanu fall far enough. Because of the run on quarterbacks, they get a guy who some may have thought to be the top offensive tackle in his class at one point. But, he ends up being the third tackle off the board, and Geno Smith is a happy man.
