It's time for Round 2 of "Producer's Pick," as Derek Papa, the architect of "The Greg Papa Show" with Bonta Hill tells you how the top 10 picks will play out...

1. Cleveland — QB Sam Darnold USC

Hue Jack City loves himself some USC QB's. John Dorsey goes with the safe pick. I know he had a rough 2017 but I'll always remember that Rose Bowl where he put on a show. 

 

2. NY Giants — RB Saquon Barkley Penn ST. 

Everyone says it's too high to take a running back. This guy is different. Helps in the passing game too. Giants would be stupid to pass him up.

 

3. NY Jets — QB Josh Rosen UCLA

Jets just need a QB. This guys seems a little whiny but he fits the part. 

 

4. Cleveland — DE Bradley Chubb NC ST. 

Browns get excited with a Chubby to match up with Myles Garrett.

5. Denver — G Quinton Nelson Norte Dame 

I'm sure Elway wants a QB but they just signed Keenum and I'm sure he doesn't want to get rid of Paxton Lynch just yet. Nelson is probably the surest thing in this draft & Broncos need help on the line. 

 

6. Buffalo (trade w/Indy) — QB Josh Allen Wyoming 

This dude said he likes buffalo wings, seems like the right move. He used to playing in the cold. 

 

7. Tampa Bay — DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Alabama 

Best DB in the draft. Whether it's Corner or safety, Bucs need both & he can play both! Go figure! 

 

8. Chicago — DL Vita Vea Washington 

Bears need more beef on that D-Line. Bears D is already pretty stacked just missing one piece. 

 

9. San Francisco — CB Denzel Ward Ohio St.

Not sure what Richard Sherman we'll see this season. Greg thinks he's the best corner and has great feet. Well Greg knows his corners...and feet.

 

10. Oakland — LB Roquan Smith Georgia 

While I would love to see a pass rusher opposite Khalil, Raiders have neglected this position for years. I can't tell you how many bad linebackers they have drafted too. This guy was a force when I watched him. Maybe undersized but so was Ray Lewis I guess, and this didn't even kill anyone...sorry. Bowman still isn't signed and he's slowing down. For god's sake, can the Raiders finally stop the run and have a leader on defense?!
