Round 1

1. Browns: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

Don't believe the Schefter nonsense. Browns will take Garrett here and if they don't, should just disband the franchise.

Next three: Thomas, Trubisky, Allen


2. 49ers: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

49ers really want to trade down from this spot, but there is growing consensus that Thomas will be the pick if they stay here. Thomas is a big talent and can help complete the D-line that will be the foundation of the next great 49ers defense.

Next three: Allen, Lattimore, Adams


3. Bears: Jamal Adams, Strong Safety, LSU

After Adams strong pro day, any questions about Adam's athleticism should be erased. He can be a foundation of the secondary and is also a potential force in the wrong defense.

Next three: Allen, Lattimore, Hooker


4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

Coughlin is apparently is in love with Fournette and he is the decision maker in Jax now. Fournette can bring a physical presence to the run game, but won't mix the fact that Bortles probably will need to be replaced. It is unlikely the Jags go secondary here after making 2 big additions in free agency.

Next three: Allen, Hooker, OJ Howard


5. Titans: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

The best cb prospect in the draft would be an excellent fit on the Titans team. This is a little early for one of the pass catching options in this draft so I would expect Titans to go secondary despite the signing of logan ryan.

Next three: Hooker, Williams, Conley




6. Jets: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

The jets seem to be trending qb and Trubisky is the best qb prospect in the draft. He isn't going to be ready to play right away, but Josh mccown can hold down the job while he develops.

Next three: Hooker, Watson, Foster


7. Chargers: Malik Hooker, Free Safety, Ohio State

Chargers seem to be in love with Hooker and will take him regardless of his injury issues if he is still available at this pick. Allen is also an option if he is available.

Next three: Allen, Foster, Williams


8. Saints: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

***Trade***
Saints receive: #8 pick, 2017 3rd round pick
Panthers receive: #11, 2017 5th round pick

Allen could be difference maker on the defensive line and would be someone the Saints might want to move up and grab because he could be difference maker on the dline.

Next three: Barnett, Foster, Conley


9. Browns: Deshaun Watson, Quarterback, Clemson

***Trade***
Browns receive: #9, 2017 3rd round pick
Bengals receive: #12

Jackson definitely wants the gm to draft a qb this year and Watson is the most ready to start in this year's draft.

Next three: Conley, Howard, Foster


10. Bills: O.J. Howard, Tight End, Alabama

Howard is a matchup nightmare and is the best pass catching option in the draft. The Bills may look for a CB instead of a pass catcher at this pick, but receiving options remain their biggest need. Just don't expect them to pick another wr from Clemson with an injury history.

Next three: Davis, Ross, Conley


11. Panthers: Gareon Conley, Cornerback, Ohio State

***Trade***
Saints receive: #8 pick, 2017 3rd round pick
Panthers receive: #11, 2017 5th round pick

Look for Carolina to go either CB or RB with this pick after acquiring Peppers in free agency. OL is a need despite the terrible Kalil signing, but the OT class is very weak this year so they will likely wait till later or address it next season. Conley has great physical tools and can develop into an elite cb.

Next three: Humphrey, Davis, White


12. Bengals: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

***Trade***
Browns receive: #9, 2017 3rd round pick
Bengals receive: #12

Foster is a rangy linebacker who will be an excellent fit in their defense. Look for Cincinnati to go defense here and look to add a receiver in later rounds.

Next three: Barnett, Charlton, Harris


13. Cardinals: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan

Davis is the best complete wr in this class and should be groomed to replace fitzgerald in Arizona. This also gives Palmer another target as they try to maximize his window as he continues his decline.

Next three: Ross, Njoku, Humphrey


14. Eagles: Marlon Humphrey, Cornerback, Alabama

With the recent signings of Jeffries and Smith and high recent draft picks agholor and mathews still on the roster it hard for me to see the Eagles use this draft pick on a receiver. CB is still a big need on this team and humphrey has great film and technique.

Next three: white, awuzie, Mccaffery


15. Colts: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

Barnett had great college production and can provide more pass rush to the defense. Colts could also look rb or the with this pick.

Next three: Harris, charlton, Njoku


16. Titans: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

***Trade***
Titans receive #16 pick
Ravens receive #18 pick, 2017 5th round pick

Williams gives Mariota a target that can catch contested balls if needed on the outside to pair with Walker. Look for the Titans to move up for one of the top three receivers if they don't think the one they like will fall to them.

Next three: Ross, Njoku, Peppers
