Best Prospect in the draft. I don't think any team will be able to pass on Garrett because I think he is the best prospect in the draft hands down and I don't think any of the QBs are worth taking over him.
Probably going to be the highest QB if he comes out this year. Kaepernick and Gabbert have both had their chances and have blown them. I'm not extremely confident in this pick however as Chip Kelly has not drafted a QB this high in his entire NFL coaching career.
His stock is going to rise after the Texas A&M game where he made his presence felt in a remarkable way. He is a great prospect and will be able to make his presence felt from multiple spots along the Titans front.
Corners are extremely difficult to find in most drafts and even though the class is deep with them, Quincy Wilson seems to be the best currently. The Titans have older players at CB and need some youth at the position if they want to continue building.
Jabrill Peppers plays similar to Jalen Ramsey and even though I don't see Peppers ever becoming a perimeter corner, he could give the Saints a chess piece that allows them to try a bunch of different things on defense.
Vic Beasley's future is likely as a pass rush specialist, Barnett can stay on the field at DE the entire game and give this defense some pass rush to help against the pass happy NFC South.
Reshad Jones is an underrated safety, but he is not getting any younger. Adams is a versatile safety that plays a similar role, but can also make a difference on the field in his own right. He has plus coverage skills and playmaking ability.
Ameer Abdullah is unlikely to ever develop into a feature back. The Lions have some decent pieces on offense and the Lions O could flourish with a back as talented as Fournette.
Keenan Allen's injuries might have been a result of bad luck, but Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams are not receivers that can carry an offense. With a shrinking window for Phillip Rivers, it would be wise for the Chargers to get him as many weapons as possible. The WR class has a decent dropoff after Williams, so this might be their best chance to snag a difference maker.
Conley has been a good CB this year. The Browns have been hurting for a CB to start opposite Joe Haden and Conley is good enough to give QBs like Roethlisberger and Dalton some problems.
McDowell might be the best prospect available at this point and the Bucs aren't a team with a lot of needs. McDowell could learn a lot from Gerald McCoy and give the Bucs one of the best interior pass rushes in the NFL.
The Giants have always appeared adverse to adding LB talent through the draft, but with a bonafide stud like Foster sitting at their spot, it would be shocking for them to look past him.
Darrelle Revis is over the hill and Buster Skrine has been getting picked on for weeks. Jalen Tabor is a good prospect and has decent value at this spot. The Jets have a lot of needs, but CB is an important position to have depth at.
The Jaguars are a team with a ton of talent that is plagued by deficient coaching, Gus Bradley is unlikely to be the coach next season, so the pick is up in the air in a way. Robinson is almost a luxury pick for this team as I expect him to play at guard or the right tackle spot. Luke Joeckel is likely on his way out and that leaves an open spot on this line.
The Ravens have a lot of holes but the FO has failed to address the need for a quality corner opposite of Jimmy Smith for years. Lewis is a talented cover corner and patches a hole in what otherwise is a fairly decent defense.
The Cowboys pass rush is nothing to write home about. If the Cowboys can stock their DL the same way they've stacked their OL, they will be a contender for the next couple seasons.
