The Browns were able to pick up a 1st round pick in last years draft so the have the luxury of picking the best player available. That's what they get in Mules Garrett. Although he reminds me a bit of Jadeveon Clowney, who seems to be a colossal bust at this point in his career, Garrett has hall of fame potential and could give Cleveland a reason to draft him with a strong 2016 season.
Kaaya to me seems like Christian Hackenburg in the sense that both were high profile QB's in high school but never really lived up to their potential in college. Although Kaaya has another year to grow, I feel that his stock may fall pray to being stuck on a dysfunctional college team. Never the less, Chicago needs to move on from Jay Cutler and Kaaya may very well be the man to lead them into the future.
Watson is a duel threat quarterback that would fit perfectly in Chip Kelley's offense. Leading Clemson to a national championship appearance last year, he could separate himself from the rest of the pack as the best QB in the draft.
Fournette's stock fell a bit when Derrick Henry outclassed him in their head to head match up, but he will make up for it this year and give the Dolphins a much needed boost in their offense.
I feel that Jamal Adams is a bit overrated and has reaped the benefits of being with a great defensive program in LSU. he may generate a lot of hype though so he could land in the first round.
*Rams Pick* The Titans need a shutdown corner badly and Jalen Tabor fits the bill. Being paired with Vernon Hargreaves last year, he still led the Gators in interceptions. He has an unlimited amount of potential and could easily cement himself as the best corner in this class.
The Colts need to add to their defense if they want to compete in the well balanced AFC South.
Luke Joeckel needs to be more consistent or else his time may be up as a Jacksonville Jaguar. Roderick Johnson is talented at the tackle position and would be a good option for them at number 10.
Malik McDowell is a monster on the Defensive line and the Bucs would happily take him here,
Another linebacker falls due to a great class and the Redskins (how dare I address them by their actual mascot name) get a guy to pair with Su'a Cravens.
Barrnett's stock should rise as Tennessee is expected to have a good year. He owns the line of scrimmage and would be a big help to a struggling defense. In a class that holds a great amount of linebacker talent, Barrnett should be the best one in this class.
Jonathan Allen is athletic and has great agility but lacks ideal size at 6'3". Detroit would happily scoop him up though if he is sitting in the middle of the first round.
*Eagles Pick* Jackson gives the Browns some fire power and versatility. His speed is outstanding and his play making ability is even better. He would be a nice addition to the Brown's secondary and could pair with Joe Haden.
Cook will be the second running back taken. Although he has fumbling issues, he has enormous potential. Him, Beckham jr. and Eli could make a great three headed monster that complements what Dallas did by drafting Ezekiel Elliot.
Desmond King is in my opinion the best corner in the draft besides Jalen Tabor.
Houston needs better linebackers and Jarred Davis is a big upgrade.
