It’s becoming obvious that Caleb Williams is the pick for the Bears. They have had a nice offseason, and if he’s the real deal, watch out for this team.

They are definitely taking a quarterback and Jayden Daniels should be the pick. He’s the most-improved player I’ve ever seen in the draft process. That matters.

Would I draft J.J. McCarthy here? No way. But he just seems like a Patriots quarterback — a leader and a winner.

They make the bold move to go get a quarterback, which they must do. Drake Maye is rumored to be their guy.

With Keenan Allen traded to the Bears and Mike Williams released, they need to get a receiver in the worst way. Marvin Harrison Jr. is considered by most to be the best.

The Giants lack a true playmaker outside, which is what Malik Nabers can be. I think he’s the best receiver in this draft.

They took guard Peter Skoronski last year, so now they take Joe Alt to play next to him. The line in front of Will Levis suddenly would be much improved.

The Falcons have seemingly been searching for a top-tier edge rusher for a decade. Dallas Turner has those types of skills. They did a lot for the offense in free agency, so now it’s time to add to the defense.

The Bears need to add an edge player opposite Montez Sweat. Jared Verse has the speed and power teams love. They could consider offensive line here, but edge makes more sense.

They are trying to get more help outside to go with Garrett Wilson. Rome Odunze is a big target who would make a nice complement to Wilson’s game — even with the one-year signing of Mike Williams.

They signed Sean Murphy-Bunting in free agency, but you can never have enough corners. They also could look to add a receiver here, maybe Brian Thomas Jr. from LSU

They don’t get a lot out of the position, so taking Brock Bowers would make sense. They could also look to get help for their offensive line.

You can never go wrong taking a big, powerful offensive lineman. Taliese Fuaga would fit better on the right side than Olu Fashanu from Penn State.

In this mock, Olu Fashanu falls down this far, which might be unlikely since he’s so talented. The Saints have to fix their line, and he would go a long way towards doing that.

They have two young corners they like, but in a division loaded with young passers on the rise, they need more. Terrion Arnold would be a nice addition.

Taking an up-the-field type of player makes sense for new coach Mike Macdonald, who had Justin Madubuike in Baltimore. Byron Murphy II plays a lot like Madubuike.

They tried to keep Calvin Ridley, but he went to Tennessee. So now they add a speedy, big player to go with Gabe Davis, Christian Kirk and Zay Jones. They could consider corner here as well.

They need to get a long-term answer at right tackle and JC Latham is a perfect fit. He is a big, power player who will give them a nice right tackle even after they signed Trent Brown to a one-year deal.

With Aaron Donald gone, they need to get help on the edge to help improve the rush. They have some good, young down players, but need edge help. Laiatu Latu can be that guy.

They need more help up front, and Troy Fautanu can play guard or tackle. He is a power player who fits the Steelers.

Terron Armstead is getting up in the years and was said to be considering retiring, so it’s time to get a long-term left tackle. Amarius Mims can play right guard in 2024 when Armstead is on the field.

Corner is a big issue for them as age has become a problem with their starters. They need to get a young cover player who can improve the back end.

They need to get better inside and center Hjalte Froholdt is in the final year of his contract. Jackson Powers-Johnson would give them a nice player to develop the line around.

Corner help is needed with Stephon Gilmore gone. Nate Wiggins has outstanding cover skills, but some scouts have knocked him for his tackling. But he’s not as bad on tape as that sounds.

The center spot was an issue for them last year, so taking Graham Barton makes sense. He played tackle last year, but most teams think he’s better off inside.

They need deep speed in their offense. Xavier Worthy blew away the 40-yard dash at the combine, so he could be that guy. He isn’t big, but he can fly.
