2017 NFL Mock Draft by falcons4life - 3.26
Published at 3/28/2017 9:51:21 PM

Okay. So i'm sick of looking at Mock drafts that make no sense, you take one look and go, "This is so stupid there's no way this will ever happen", So the approach I am taking is put all their needs on the table, and then put the best person in that fits those needs. However, i will also give suggestions of others that also fit the motif of which ever team I am doing.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

Top needs: QB, pass rusher, DB
-As every Mock draft so far, this pick will stay the same.

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

Top needs: QB, OLB, OL
-Thomas is a wrecking ball, he can help elevate this defense back to what it used to be.
Other Prospects: QB DeShone Kizer, DL Jonathan Allen
-GM John Lynch loved the interview they had with Kizer
-Allen is a top talent, however I think due to his injury history, Thomas is a safer prospect

3. Bears: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

-Bears take this as the best available player in the draft, as well as help solidify there DL, Last year they drafted speedy Leonard Floyd who was a force and expected to do even better next year. This pick shores up the defensive front.
Other Prospects: ILB Reuben Foster, QB Deshone Kizer
-With Bears trading for Glennon and Sanchez, I feel like they would wait till second round for a Quarterback
-Due to Foster's red flags, they wouldn't try to take him this early

4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

Top needs: TE, DT, OL
-What's the best way to help out a struggling Quarterback? Oh yeah, have a good running back to take the pressure off. Easy Pick for the Jaguars.
Other Prospects: DL Jonathan Allen, OT Cam Robinson
-Through the past two off seasons, Jaguars have gotten some high rated defensive players and quite honestly looks menacing for opponents so I don't think they would draft defensive.
-Robinson is good prospect, not a top 4 prospect though.

5. Titans: Jamal Adams, Strong Safety, LSU

Top needs: CB, WR, ILB
-Adams helps the Defensive backfield a rock solid anchor that they need in the middle of the field.
Other Prospects: WR Corey Davis, CB Marshon Lattimore, S Malik Hooker
-Davis could grow to be Mariota's best friend, he's a playmaker.
-Defensive backfield is the priority here, Lattimore or Hooker would fit in this pick easily as well.

6. Jets: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

Top needs: QB, OLB, CB
They may have found a replacement for Revis in Clayborn, however it's only a one year contract and they have no other corner with the potential to be the next Revis Island. Lattimore would fix this problem.
Other Prospects: QB Mitch Trubitsky, S Malik Hooker, RB Leonard Fournette
-Drafting a Quarterback first round (I feel) would signify the Hackenberg Project is a failure and I don't think they're ready to pull the plug on that project yet.
-Adding a safety would be just as good a decision as Lattimore, Buster Skrine hasn't been the play maker they needed and Pryor has been good but not enough. This would help the secondary tremendously.
-I add Fournette because should Jag's not take him, Fournette would take pressure off whatever quarterback is under center, as well as give fans a reason to watch the games, everyone knows this is a complete rebuild year for the Jets, fans need a reason to watch other than to be disappointed.

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

Top needs: WR, DE, OG
-Hooker would be the best prospect available, He would be a fantastic complement to Casey Hayward and this up and coming defense.
Other Prospects: OL Cam Robinson, WR Mike Williams, DL Jonathan Allen
- Chargers desperately need a consistent Offensive lineman that can last a season, Robinson would be a great fit, but it's still a bit high for him to be drafted.
-Williams would give them a true number 1 WR who can take converage away from Travis Benjamin.
-Should Allen fall to this spot, I think it's a perfect fit for LA.

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

Top needs: OT, DE, RB
-Cam Newton cannot operate when all the pressure is on him to make plays, it's vital to get him a back that can take pressure off him as well as give Newton a new weapon coming out of the backfield in the passing game.
Other prospects: DE Takkarist McKinley, DE Derek Barnett, OT Ryan Ramcyzk
-Panthers just lost an up and comer in Ealy and desperately need someone to fill that void.
-Newton needs help up front. but it's hard to pass up either a RB or DE in this spot

9. Bengals: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Top needs: OL, LB, Edge
I know there is a suspected drop for Foster due to the red flags off the field. However, Bengals are no strangers to dealing with trouble makers and they cant pass up this talent.
Other Prospects: OLB Haason Reddick, OL Cam Robinson, OL Ryan Ramcyzk
-Reddick is ridiculously talented athletically as proven in the combine, but has none of the red flags Foster does.
-Bengals watched 2 of their best lineman walk in free agency, they NEED replacements if they want to consider a viable playoff run

10. Bills: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan

Top needs: DB, WR, OT
-Bills need a complement or a fill-in for Sammy Watkins for if he get's injured like he does every year. Davis is elusive and good route runner, exactly what they need.
Other Prospects: WR Mile Williams, DB Marlon Humphery, DB Tre'Davious White
-Williams is a great wide receiver who could easily go in this spot as well.
-With them losing their best CB. they could very well get a corner for a replacement

11. Saints: Marlon Humphrey, Cornerback, Alabama

Top needs: DB, LB, WR
-Saints secondary was poor, it got better throughout the season marginally, but not enough. Humphrey will help restore that secondary.
Other Prospects: DB Tre'Davious White, DE Derek Barnett, OLB Haason Reddick
-Saints need help in the secondary, White is a great prospect as well to fill the void.
-A pass rusher is a major need as well, the Saints had horrible numbers when it came to sacks.
-It's been years since the Saints have had a dominant Line backer corps, Reddick is ridiculously talented and could easily help improve the defense in the middle of the field.

12. Browns: O.J. Howard, Tight End, Alabama

Top needs: QB, pass rusher, DB
-I really want to go with a QB here, however Howard is such a talent that i think Browns will take him instead to give whichever QB they have a big target to dump the ball off to.
Other Prospects: QB Deshaun Watson, QB DeShone Kizer
-Browns REALLY need a QB, Watson is my guess but KIzer has looked good as well.

13. Cardinals: Tre'Davious White, Cornerback, LSU

Top needs: ILB, QB, DB
-Cardinals need a CB to play opposite Patrick Peterson, they were grasping at straws last season trying to convert WR to play a fill in role. They just lost one of their best safeties so they need help in the secondary no matter what.
Other Prospects: QB Mitch Trubitsky, QB DeShone Kizer, S Jabril Peppers
-Cardinals are realizing that Palmer is not the way he used to be, they need to find a successor immediately. My prediction is Palmer retires after this year along with Fitzgerald.
-Peppers is an interesting prospect, he is the swiss army knife that can help fill the void of the safety they lost.

14. Eagles: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

Top needs: CB, RB, DE
-Eagles desperately need a corner, like REALLY desperate. However, Barnett would be a steal for dropping so to them. He has average physical abilities but makes up for it with a constant motor and great technique.
Other Prospects: CB Teez Tabor, CB Quincy Wilson
-As stated, they really need a corner so it's likely who they draft.

15. Colts: Garett Bolles, Offensive Tackle, Utah

Top needs: OL, DL, RB
-Colts need to protect Andrew Luck, he's a great QB but he needs more then 2 seconds before getting plastered by the oncoming pass rushers. OL is priority. Bolles does a great job in blocking especially.
Other Prospects: RB Dalvin Cook, RB Christian McCaffery, OT Ryan Ramryzk, OT Cam Robinson
-Gore is old, productive, but old. They need a new spark in the backfield who can take pressure off Luck.
-Cam and Ramryzk are good fits as well, but I think Bolles will be the pick.

16. Ravens: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

Top needs: OLB, WR, CB
-Ravens need a WR Steve Smilth was the guy for the past couple years, they need a number one wideout that Flacco can throw to. Williams fits the bill with a tall strong upper body.
Other Prospects: WR John Ross, OLB Haasan Reddick
-WR is the priority, they need to give Flacco a weapon. Ross would be fastest speedster in the NFL
-Reddick would help a depleting LB corps.
