The Jets' big move from No. 6 to No. 3 in the draft has certainly shaken up the Top Five, where there is almost certain now to be a run on quarterbacks. The consensus around the league is that at least two, probably three, and maybe four quarterbacks will go in the first five picks.
Of course, there are just over four weeks until the NFL Draft begins on April 26, so a lot can still change. For now, here's a projection of how the first 10 picks will go...
1) Cleveland Browns - QB Sam Darnold, USC
For a long time there had been a thought that they'd take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley here to keep him from the Giants (at No. 2) or Colts (at No. 3), and then they could take their franchise quarterback with their second pick at No. 4. Then, the Jets jumped into the No. 3 hole, and it became clear that the Browns really need to take their QB now.
Barkley can wait, especially after they signed free agent RB Carlos Hyde to a three-year, $15 million deal. Darnold has been long considered the best of this QB group, though a lot of scouts love Wyoming's Josh Allen, and some think the Browns have been eyeing him, too.
2) New York Giants - QB Josh Rosen, UCLA
Barkley will certainly get some consideration here, and he could be the pick if the Giants think Davis Webb is their Quarterback of the Future. If they don't, though, they know they have to pick a quarterback.
Eli Manning is 37 and the Giants have a rare opportunity to pick high in a QB-rich draft. Their hope is they won't be back in the Top 10 for years, so this may be their last chance to draft Manning's successor for a while. They don't want to end up in "Quarterback Hell". As for which quarterback they like, they've been linked to Rosen for a while in part because many consider him the most pro-ready.
But again, don't rule out Allen. He might need a few years, but that's fine if Pat Shurmur is right that Manning still has "years" left.
3) New York Jets (from Indianapolis Colts) - QB Josh Allen, Wyoming
Their big trade up from No. 6 was obviously done with a quarterback in mind, and not with just one quarterback either. That would be too risky, since anything can still happen at No. 1 and No. 2, and they wouldn't make this move if there was a risk of losing the one guy they wanted.
According to a team source, they have three quarterbacks rated fairly close together, and those are believed to be Darnold, Rosen, and Allen. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Allen is the darling of NFL scouts because of his size and cannon arm. He has accuracy issues and may need some time to adjust to the NFL, which is a bit worrisome because the Jets may need a starter in 2019.
But a franchise quarterback of any kind is worth the wait.
4) Cleveland Browns - RB Saquon Barkley, Penn State
If this actually happens and the Browns can pull off the Darnold-Barkley double, they would be huge winners of this draft because they'd be getting what some scouts believe are the two best players in the whole thing.
Barkley is being talked about like he's a generational running back, the equal at least of Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley. His presence would surely take some pressure off a rookie quarterback. Or, if the Browns are happy with Hyde, they sure could get a lot from teams looking to move up if Barkley drops this far.
5) Denver Broncos - QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma
Four quarterbacks in the Top Five seems crazy, and it might be. But Case Keenum isn't a long-term answer at quarterback in Denver, and if the Broncos were happy with Paxton Lynch -- their 2016 first-round pick -- they probably wouldn't have signed Keenum.
One other possibility: The Buffalo Bills, with two first-round picks (No. 12 and No. 22) could offer those, and maybe both of their second-rounders to move up to draft a quarterback here.
6) Indianapolis Colts (from Jets) - G Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame
The Colts have made it known they want to accumulate picks, so they could be a trade-down candidate again. If not, they're going to focus here on an offensive line that gave up an NFL-worst 56 sacks last season. They are hopeful that QB Andrew Luck will return healthy. The last thing they need is for him to get hurt again.
7) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - DE Bradley Chubb, N.C. State
The worst pass rush in the NFL last season? It belonged to the Bucs, who had just 22 sacks. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Chubb will instantly change that. He's an edge rusher who is considered to be, by far, the best defensive prospect in the draft.
8) Chicago Bears - CB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama
The Bears matched Kansas City's offer for CB Kyle Fuller, and they re-signed CB Prince Amukamara, but given the former Giants' injury history, they know they need some depth.
They also could use some safety help, which may be eventually where the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Fitzpatrick will play. He's versatile enough to do that or play the slot, even though he might not be good enough to be a lock-down corner (If they want that, they might turn to Ohio State's Denzel Ward instead).
9) San Francisco 49ers - LB Tremaine Edmunds, Virginia Tech
There may be some big, promising shoes to fill in San Francisco now that linebacker Reuben Foster is facing domestic violence charges, and a possible suspension. There's no guarantee the 49ers don't end up cutting him.
So, it makes sense that they'd look to fill his position in the draft. And Edmunds is a unique prospect with terrific size (6-foot-5, 253) and speed who could play inside or outside. He could even be better than the 49ers ever thought Foster would be.
10) Oakland Raiders - LB Roquan Smith, Georgia
The Raiders need linebacker help too, and if the 49ers trade down (definitely a possibility), they might be interested in Edmunds. If not, the 6-foot-1, 236-pound Smith isn't quite the same physical specimen, but he's a heck of an athlete and could prove to be a dangerous pass rusher.
