Trey Lance

Quarterback, Washington Football Team

It is clear now that the Washington Football Team will not be led by Dwayne Haskins now, or in the future, as they have benched their former franchise quarterback. With that said, it may be time for head coach Ron Rivera to draft his own quarterback, and Trey Lance from North Dakota State would be available at No. 4.

Lance is the kind of talent that you can really build around, as he is athletic, and has a cannon for a right arm. The Washington Football Team has some solid talent on both sides of the ball, but with so many question marks at quarterback, they likely will end up landing in the top-5 picks next April.

Micah Parsons

Linebacker, Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have been one of the bigger disappointments of the young football season, as they were expected to challenge for a playoff spot year. However, they are just playing wildly inconsistent football, and as it stands, they would have a top-5 pick in next April’s NFL Draft.

With this pick, they should look to add a quality linebacker, and Micah Parsons is the best player at that position group in this draft class. He can play sideline to sideline, and for a defense looking to get younger, he would be a cornerstone player.

Ja'Marr Chase

Wide Receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have some nice young wide receivers currently in players like Laviska Shenault Jr. and DJ Chark, but passing up on Ja’Marr Chase here is not going to happen. Gardner Minshew needs all the weapons he can get, and with two first round picks in April, they can go with the best wideout in the class at pick No. 6.

Chase is a dynamic playmaker, and could have an impact like Justin Jefferson, his former teammate at LSU, has had as a rookie in Minnesota. He can go up and make any catch, has tremendous speed, and would be a playmaker on an offense that is already fun to watch.
