2017 NFL Mock Draft by Cunningham818
Published at

Every pick was based off team needs and where players were going based on other mock drafts. And if the descriptions look familiar, it's because they came right from Walter's Team Needs pages.

Round 1

1. Browns: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

The Browns desperately need a franchise quarterback, as it's clear that Cody Kessler is nothing more than a long-term backup. There's talk that Cleveland will take Mitch Trubisky with the No. 1 overall pick.

Range (based on other drafts): 1-15


2. 49ers: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

Hey 49ers fans, 'member when Aldon Smith was on the roster and he kept getting a bunch of sacks? Smith was fantastic! Unfortunately, he's long gone, and San Francisco no longer has anyone who can rush the passer consistently. 'Member Aldon Smith again?

Range: 1 (Garrett is listed at number 1 in every draft, but since Trubisky was all over the place in every mock draft and quarterback is their top need, I could see Cleveland shocking the world and taking him, which in turn would lead to Myles Garrett "falling" to San Francisco)


3. Bears: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Bears have some promising, young cornerbacks on their roster, but they could stand to add some depth.

Range: 3-6


4. Jaguars: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Jaguars could use an interior pass-rushing presence with Sen'Derrick Marks in decline. Jonathan Allen could be theirs in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Range: 2-5


5. Titans: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

Both positions in the secondary must be upgraded. The Titans may go for either Malik Hooker or Jamal Adams at No. 5 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Range: 2-10


6. Jets: Deshaun Watson, Quarterback, Clemson

This is the obvious top need. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are impending free agents, and they were never good anyway. Christian Hackenberg is probably a sunk cost, so New York will investigate the possibility of selecting a quarterback at No. 5 overall.

Range: 5-25


7. Chargers: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

Here's another the position the Chargers need multiples of. They'll have to find only one though if they manage to re-sign Melvin Ingram. However, with Joey Bosa playing on the line of scrimmage, Los Angeles should find a bookend pass-rusher across from Ingram.

Range: 4-19


8. Eagles: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

Trade w/ Carolina

Doug Pederson played musical chairs with his starting running backs this past season because he didn't have any confidence in any of them. Ryan Mathews was the best of the bunch, but he's too injury-prone to be deemed reliable. The Eagles will have to use an early pick on a running back.

Range: 5-8


9. Bengals: Malik Hooker, Safety, Ohio State

The Bengals missed Reggie Nelson, as he left for Oakland this past offseason. Their defense was much weaker on the back end as a result, so they could spend one of their early selections on a replacement.

Range: 5-9


10. Bills: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

Sammy Watkins is a dynamic weapon, but the Bills don't have anything else at receiver. Robert Woods doubly doesn't count because he's both a pedestrian talent and an impending free agent.

Range: 10-16


11. Saints: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

The Saints had some of the weakest linebackers in the NFL, so it could be argued that this is their biggest need. James Laurinaitis was playing for them last year, for crying out loud. Reuben Foster is a viable candidate for the team at No. 11 overall.

Range: 6-11


12. Browns: Sidney Jones, Cornerback, Washington

An e-mailer had a great quote about Joe Haden, calling him the "oldest 27-year-old on the planet." Haden can't stay healthy, so the Browns need to find at least one new cornerback this offseason.

Range: 10-21


13. Ravens: Taco Charlton, Defensive End, Michigan

Trade w/ Arizona

Baltimore's No. 1 need is bolstering the pass rush, which was non-existent down the stretch. Having players who can rattle opposing passers would've prevented Ben Roethlisberger from overcoming a double-digit deficit on Christmas afternoon. The Ravens need a new defensive end to go along with Timmy Jernigan.

Range: 7-23


14. Colts: Ryan Ramcyzk, Offensive Tackle, Wisconsin

Indianapolis has some major defensive issues, but protecting Andrew Luck is the No. 1 priority. Right tackle has been a major weakness, and it needs to be addressed in free agency or early in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Range: 12-24


15. Panthers: Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Florida State

Trade w/ Philadelphia

Doug Pederson played musical chairs with his starting running backs this past season because he didn't have any confidence in any of them. Ryan Mathews was the best of the bunch, but he's too injury-prone to be deemed reliable. The Eagles will have to use an early pick on a running back.


16. Cardinals: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

Trade w/ Baltimore

Baltimore's No. 1 need is bolstering the pass rush, which was non-existent down the stretch. Having players who can rattle opposing passers would've prevented Ben Roethlisberger from overcoming a double-digit deficit on Christmas afternoon. The Ravens need a new defensive end to go along with Timmy Jernigan.
