Round 1 NFL Draft Tracker Travon Walker

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles start the night with picks 15 and 18 and rumors swirling that Howie Roseman may make a move up for a difference-making defender.No. 1 – Jacksonville Jaguars – Edge rusher Travon Walker, Georgia The thought was that the Jags were having a three-way debate with owner Shad Khan preferring Aidan Hutchinson, GM Trent Baalke liking the upside of Travon Walker, and coach Doug Pederson preferring an offensive tackle, either Evan Neal or Ikem Ekwonu.Baalke wins out and Walker, an edge rusher with a huge ceiling, is the first Georgia player to go No. 1 overall since Matthew Stafford in 2009.No. 2 – Detroit Lions – Edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson, MichiganHutchinson stays home going from Ann Arbor to Detriot, giving Sergio Rodriguez Jersey Dan Campbell one of the cleanest and safest players in the draft.No. 3 – Houston Texans – Cornerback Derek Stingley, Jr., LSUThere was a lot of talk about the Eagles moving up to get Stingley but the smoke of the Texans having the LSU corner No. 1 on the board was accompanied by fire.No. 4 – New York Jets – Cornerback Ahmad Gardner, CincinnatiAny hope the Eagles had of getting into the top 10 for one of the best CBs quickly ends as the Jets make it four defenders in a row with “Sauce” Gardner.No. 5 – New York Giants – Edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux, OregonIt’s five straight defensive players in the era of offense as the Giants pull the trigger on Thibodeaux, another potential trade-up player for the Eagles.No. 6 – Carolina Panthers – Offensive tackle Ikem Ekwonu, North Carolina StateThe Panthers had their choice of the best three OTs and kept Ekwonu close to home. The first offensive player comes off the board.No. 7 – New York Giants (from Chicago) – Offensive tackle Evan Neal, AlabamaHere Charles Barkley Jersey come the OTs as the Giants get help on both sides of the line of scrimmage with top-10 talent. Neal should help Daniel Jones settle in what will be a make-or-break season with New York eschewing the QB’s fifth-year option. No. 8 – Atlanta Falcons – Wide receiver Drake London, Southern CalArthur Smith wanted a big receiver and he got the best one in the draft in London. The questionable part is that the Falcons probably don’t have the consistent vehicle in quarterback with Marcus Mariota to get Kyle Pitts and London the football.The selection pushes the WRs the Eagles might be interested in down the board a bit.No. 9 – Seattle Seahawks (from Denver) – Offensive tackle Charles Cro s, Mi si sippi StateThe OT run lasts from No. 6 to 9 with Cro s being the last of the top three off the board. It would have been nice to get that kind of OL talent for Ru sell Wilson but I digre s. No. 10 – New York Jets – Wide receiver Garrett Wilson, Ohio State Unable to get the Deebo Samuel deal done, the Jets go WR and take Garrett Wilson over Jameson Williams, which is a slight surprise.No. 11 – New Orleans Saints (from Washington) – Wide receiver Chris Olave, Ohio State The Saints sent the 16th pick to Washington plus No. 98 and 120 to go up five spots, the other show after the pre-draft deal with the Eagles. The move was to get WR Chris Olave, another curious decision by Micky Loomis but the WR run may have spooked the Saints.No. 12 – Detroit Lions (from Minnesota) – Wide receiver Jameson WilliamsThe Lions moved picks No. 32, 34, and 66 to get No. 12 and No. 46. Wilt Chamberlain Jersey The Lions wanted in on the WR run and another player the Eagles like is off the board.No. 13 – Philadelphia Eagles (from Houston via Cleveland ) – Defensive tackle Jordan Davis, GeorgiaThe Eagles gave up Nos. 124, 162, and 166 to go up over Baltimore and select Georgia DT Jordan Davis, the logical targeted trade-up candidate.No. 14 – Baltimore Ravens – Safety Kyle Hamilton, Notre DameThe Eagles certainly weren’t the only ones who put the Ravens together with Jordan Davis but getting Kyle Hamilton, arguably the best overall football player in the draft is not a bad consolation prize. No. 15 – Houston Texans (from Philadelphia via Miami) – Offensive guard Kenyon Green, Texas A&MThe Texans drop down into the Eagles’ original spot to select offensive guard Kenyon Green. No. 16 – Washington Commandeers (From New Orleans via Indianapolis and Philadelphia) – Wide receiver Jahan Dotson, Penn StateScroll to ContinueThe Commandeers wanted a WR and felt comfortable falling back and taking Dotson.No. 17 – Los Angeles Chargers – Offensive guard Zion Johnson, Boston CollegeGetting help to protect prized young QB Justin Herbert was expected.No. 18 – Tenne see Titans (from Philadelphia via New Orleans) – Wide receiver Treylon Burks, ArkansasThe Eagles traded the 18th pick to Tenne see for veteran receiver A.J. Brown and gave the two-time 1,000-yard producer a four-year extension worth up to $100 million with $57M of that guaranteed. The splash everyone in Joel Embiid Jersey Philadelphia wanted.The Titans then selected Brown’s potential replacement in the big-bodied Treylon Burks. No. 19 – New Orleans Saints (from Philadelphia) – Offensive tackle Trevor Penning, Nothern IowaThe Saints get the offensive line help they needed after losing Terron Armstead in free agency, selecting Penning.No. 20 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Quarterback Kenny Pickett, PittsburghThe Steelers share a facility with the University of Pittsburgh so Kenny Maurice Cheeks Jersey Pickett can just head down the hall. This is the latest the first QB has come off the board since 1997 when Jim Druckenmiller was the 26th pick by the 49ers.No. 21 – Kansas City Chiefs (from New England) – Cornerback Trent McDuffie, WashingtonThe Chiefs sent Nos. 29, 94, and 121 to the Pats and selected McDuffie, one of the cleanest players in the draft but a player that lacks the length teams look for at cornerback No. 22 – Green Bay Packers (from Las Vegas) – Linebacker Quay Walker, GeorgiaWhile everyone zigged toward receiver help for Aaron Rodgers, the Packers zagged toward defense with Walker beating the more-touted Devin Lloyd and teammate Nakobe Dean as the best second-level defender to go.No. 23 – Buffalo Bills (from Baltimore via Arizona) – Cornerback Kaiir Elam, FloridaThe Ravens traded Hollywood Brown and the No. 100 overall pick to Arizona to get back into the first round but then moved back to 25 so Buffalo could get ahead of Dallas to take Florida CB Kaiir Elam, who was really well-liked by NFL personnel people.No. 24 – Dallas Cowboys – Offensive tackle, Tyler Smith, Tulsa The Cowboys ultimately defaulted to what had been their strength for years and went offensive line snaring Tyler Smith as a potential replacement for La’el Collins.No. 25 – Baltimore Ravens (from Buffalo
