Casserly mock 1.0: Two projected first-round trades

Fills need to protect their franchise quarterback, Marcus Mariota.

RGIII gives them time to groom Wentz.

Major need filled with best interior defensive lineman in draft.

Most debatable pick in the top 10. They can try for QB later with a win-now philosophy.

Most impactful defender for them on the draft board.

Myles Jack could be considered here, too, but Ravens must solidify LT position to protect Joe Flacco.

Obvious need addressed with Goff. If they don't take him, they are banking on Blaine Gabbert.

Projected trade from Eagles (No. 13). Trader Mike Tannebaum hits a home run with Elliott.

Best "off" cover guy in the draft.

Best-player-available philosophy also fills major need.

They need size and bulk for their 3-4 defense.

The lack of a pass rush has killed their defense.

Projected trade from Eagles (No. 8). Missed out on Stanley. Eagles get the second-round pick they lost in the Sam Bradford trade back and solidify their OL.

They continue to rebuild their defense with versatile cover/pass-rush linebacker.

Obvious need. They have the running game and defense to help the rookie.

Projected trade from Lions (No. 18). Colts can't afford to come out of first round without an OT.

Lee gives the Falcons the athletic LB they need in Dan Quinn's defense.

Projected trade from Colts (No. 16). First-year GM pulls a Bill Belichick move and trades back, adds extra picks, and still fills a need.

Rex Ryan's defense needs a pass-rushing OLB. Might be tempted to trade up for a QB.

Not the position they want but taking the best player on the board is GM Mike Maccagnan's philosophy.

They will take the best defensive player on their board.

They need speed opposite DeAndre Hopkins.

He gives Teddy Bridgewater a reliable target missing in Minnesota.

Fills big hole at wide receiver with losses in free agency.

Some will say this is a reach but he is my next-best cornerback.

Fills major need. Best value pick in the draft if he stays out of trouble.

Replaces the retired B.J. Raji at nose tackle.

Helps fill the void left by Sean Smith.

The run on cornerbacks continues.

Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short are free agents in 2017.

Broncos in position to go a lot of ways with this pick.
