We previously mocked the first round but this time, were taking a swing at including possible trades. Here is our updated first round mock draft with trades:
The Browns have traded away three quarterbacks this offseason and are left with only Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton as the only quarterbacks on their roster. The Browns use their first pick to get their quarterback of the future in Darnold.

Buffalo didn’t already trade up in the draft just to stay at pick 11. They offer the Giants both their first round picks to move up and get the quarterback they so desperately need after trading Tyrod Taylor away to the Browns this past March.
Josh McCown performed much better than was expected of him last year but the Jets know that his career is coming to end soon. They take the next best available quarterback at pick 3.
The Browns are drafting the best available player at pick 4 and, in this situation, Barkley is the unanimous best player here. With Carlos Hyde having previous injury concerns, Barkely makes sense here.
The Broncos were at their best when they had both Demarcus Ware and Von Miller lined up on opposite sides of their defensive line. At pick 5, the Broncos prioritize having a strong pass rush and select Chubb.
The Colts could easily find themselves trading back from pick 6 if Chubb is off the board but they also understand Nelson might be the most safe pick in the draft. They bolster their offensive line in an effort to protect Andrew Luck.
The Bucs are desperate for defensive backs but they choose to gain more draft capital and trade back with Arizona. With Carson Palmer likely retiring after the 2018 season, the Cardinals prepare themselves and get Palmer a successor in Mayfield.
Chicago could go a number of different ways with pick 8 but I think they choose to take the player with possibly the highest ceiling in this year’s draft in Edmunds.
San Francisco could be looking to improve their linebacker core with Roquan Smith here but, instead, they’re happy to see possibly the best defensive back in this year’s draft slip to them at pick 9.
10. OAK: Roquan Smith LB, Georgia
Oakland needs a ton of help on defense but they choose to take a player that can make an immediate impact in Roquan Smith. Smith falls into a defensive quarterback role for the Raiders here.
The Dolphins need help at just about every position and could even draft a quarterback here but they decide to take the undisputed best cornerback in the draft at pick 11.
After seeing Denzel Ward drafted just ahead of them, the Giants use the first of their two first-round picks to help out their secondary and select Jaire Alexander. Alexander has been gaining a lot of buzz after his strong combine performance.
Washington allowed a league-worst 134 yards per game on the ground last year and they rightfully address the issue with pick 13. The select Vita Vea, the versatile human wrecking ball to create some disruption in the trenches.
Green Bay could address their secondary here but they are also desperate for a pass rusher. Though Marcus Davenport is available, Green Bay go out and acquires the more polished edge rusher in Harold Landry.
The Bucs’ GM Jason Licht has mentioned how they’re looking for players with winning attitudes and Derwin James embodies such character. Tampa Bay jumps at the opportunity to get James at pick 15 and picks up draft capital in the trade back.
Baltimore’s receiving core has plenty of veteran presence but they choose to bring in some youth to that group and select D.J. Moore.
Behind Washington, the Chargers had the second-worst rushing defense in the league last year and they also take control of that problem by acquiring a defensive tackle in Da’Ron Payne.
The Panthers traded away Kelvin Benjamin last year and are left with Devin Funchess, Torrey Smith, and Curtis Samuel at the receiver position. They decide to trade up to get a receiver that they have shown interest in and select Calvin Ridley.
Dallas has thrived while having one of the best offensive lines in the league over the past few years and they choose to retain that quality by taking McGlinchey at pick 19. This pick also allows La’el Collins to move back inside to play guard.
Detroit has a number of needs that they could address with pick 20, but new head coach Matt Patricia will want to place an emphasis and getting after the quarterback. The Lions select Davenport to line up opposite of Ziggy Ansah.
Cincinnati struggled with linebacker injury issues last season and you never know when Vontaze Burfict will wind up getting suspended for another ugly hit again. The Bengals address the linebacker position and select Rashaan Evans with pick 21.
Ereck Flowers has not performed how the Giants expected him to when they drafted him in 2015. The Giants use their second first-round pick to help out their poor offensive line and select Kolton Miller.
The Falcons unfortunately lost star defensive tackle Dontari Poe to free agency and understand the importance of getting push from the interior of their defensive line. They choose to trade up with the Patriots here and get a versatile defensive tackle in Taven Bryan.
Besides for Earl Thomas, the legion of boom in Seattle is no more. The Seahawks pass on bolstering their offensive line and prioritize getting their secondary back to where it once was by selecting Mike Hughes.
This pick might surprise a lot of people but Josh Sweat is one of the best natural edge rushers in this years class (when healthy) and Tennessee is desperate to get a top tier pass rusher. They reach a bit here and select Sweat.
The Patriots aren’t shy when it comes to trading back to acquire more draft picks and they do it again this year. Though there has been talks of having interest in quarterback Mason Rudolph, the Patriots lunge at the chance to get possibly the best interior defensive lineman in Hurst. Hurst was sent home from this year’s combine due to a heart issue discovered by doctors but has been cleared for football activity.
There has been buzz around the Saints possibly wanting to draft a quarterback to sit behind Drew Brees but the need isn’t as immediate as some think. Instead, the Saints look back on their Jimmy Graham days and select Hayden Hurst to be a threat at the tight end position.
The tragedy to star linebacker Ryan Shazier took a toll on the Steelers and though Shazier could one day return to football, that won’t be any time soon. The Steelers use pick 28 to select linebacker Leighton Vander Esch.
The Jaguars were the bounce-back team of the year last season and they want to continue in the direction. Having lost Allen Robinson to free agency, the Jags decide to get Blake Bortles another offensive weapon in Courtland Sutton.
The Vikings have had constant struggles with injuries to their offensive line and they want to be able to protect new quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Vikings go out and select a human people-mover in Will Hernandez.
New England uses their second first-round pick to bolster their offensive line and take Connor Williams. Williams has had issues with injury but, when he’s healthy, he is a nasty force to be reckoned with.
The Eagles could look to add a running back with the last pick in the first round but, instead they go with a tight end. Philly chooses to find a replacement for Trey Burton and take Dallas Goedert at pick 32.
