Author's Comments

I tried to throw in a few trades just to make it interesting. I expect to update throughout draft day.

1 - CLE: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
There's some chatter lately, but I'm sticking with Garrett
2 - NO: Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
*TRADE* The Saints are a team in "win now" mode who could see themselves 1-2 pieces away. They trade the two first rounders they have this year and more to get the pass rusher everyone knows they want/need
3 - CHI: Jamal Adams, SS, LSU
Safest player at a position of need. I want to put Trubisky here real bad though.
4 - JAX: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Late rumors are swirling that Coughlin loves Deshaun Watson. I'm sticking with Fournette though.
5 - CLE: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
*TRADE* The Browns have been stockpiling picks, presumably to trade for Jimmy G, but what if the Pats don't budge? They use those picks to get their #1 QB and a kid who wants to play for them. The Titans move down to get a second round pick which they currently lack.
6 - NYJ: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
Best player available if they can't trade down
7 - LAC: Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State
One of the more common picks being mocked.
8 - CAR: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
Another mocked pick that's become near universal
9 - CIN: Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama
This was a near lock for me at the beginning of draft season and I'm putting it back.
10 - BUF: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
This is a run first team and Howard can help them there and give them an additional pass catcher. They'll probably add a WR early also.
11 - SF: Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama
*TRADE* People used to mock Allen to the Niners at #2. Now they get him at #11 and more picks. Allen drops due to fit and needs of other teams.
12 - TEN: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
*TRADE* The two biggest needs for the Titans are CB and WR.
13 - ARI: Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech
I think they like Mahomes the best so they snag him
14 - PHI: Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee
A bit of a surprise maybe but if Barnett drops to them he might be up there on their board. The buzz is that they'll take Dalvin Cook, and it could be true, but it depends on how things fall on draft night.
15 - IND: Charles Harris, DE, Missouri
I used to have Reddick here because of his versatility, then I decided that if they want something they should grab it and they've been working hard on their pass rush.
16 - BAL: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
So many options here, including a trade down. They are said to like Williams and I like that need/fit.
17 - WAS: Haason Reddick, OLB, Temple
I had Foster here in my last mock but now I've got him going sooner. Reddick is a nice consolation.
18 - NYG: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
*TRADE* I think the Gmen want to improve the OL and will move up to get the OL they like best. Some have Bolles as top OT but I just have a feeling Ramczyk goes first.
19 - HOU: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
*TRADE* With Dalvin Cook still on the board, the Bucs might not be as quick to drop down but I think Cook will be there later for them. The Texans get the QB they want.
20 - DEN: Garett Bolles, OT, Utah
They'll take the top OL on their board. It could be Lamp but I'll go with Bolles here
21 - DET: David Njoku, TE, Miami (Fla.)
If he gets by the Bucs at #19 I don't think he'll drop farther than #21
22 - MIA: Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan
A Miami beat reporter says they're going pass rusher here. I'm tempted to put Lamp back here, but I'll take that writer's word for it.
23 - TEN: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
*TRADE* They hit their two biggest needs with their top two picks and gain a few picks in the process.
24 - OAK: Jarrad Davis, ILB, Florida
The Raiders are trying to improve the defense in the middle, their LBs look weaker than DTs so they go with Davis
25 - TB: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
*TRADE* As I said, I think Cook will be there for them later if they drop down
26 - SEA: Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky
The Seahawks are lucky to get a talent like Lamp by staying put. They can put him anywhere on the OL
27 - KC: Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado
A starting corner across from Marcus Peters. DL and LB are possible too
28 - DAL: Adoree' Jackson, CB, Southern California
Free agency ravaged their secondary. They are said to like Jackson
29 - GB: Kevin King, CB, Washington
They showed in the playoffs and all season that they need better CB play, King is an athletic freak
30 - PIT: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
I'm a sucker for late draft buzz
31 - CHI: Davis Webb, QB, California
*TRADE* Atlanta can fill their needs while dropping a couple slots. Some team will come up for a QB to get that 5th year option. I now feel like Webb is the more likely QB4 in the draft
32 - SF: John Ross, WR, Washington
*TRADE* The Niners literally need help everywhere and could go in any direction. I'm just going to guess Ross is at the top of their board

Average -- Man Chicago is almost a lock for Mike Glennon rn. They're wanting best player available here. Watson is way too high...a lot of teams have him graded as a day 2 prospect.
Wednesday, March 8, 2017 8:13 AM
-- I'll adjust Chicago's pick if/when they've signed a QB that makes me think they won't draft one at #3. You might buy into the "a lot of teams have him day 2" but I don't. Lots of QB needy teams out there, it's probably a smokescreen.

-- How about those Bears not taking a QB. They even traded up for one. Jackass
Friday, April 28, 2017 8:19 AM
-- Also, how high was too high for Watson? I had him 10th when you said that, he went 12th. Jackass
