The rumor is that the Browns are deciding between Myles Garrett and Mitch Trubisky, I think Hue Jackson likes Garrett better on some interviews he had. By the time the Draft comes, i think the Brown's front office wil come to their senses and select the best pass rusher i've seen since a long time ago.
After the Browns, the Saints and Titans have the most ammunition to make a blockbuster trade. I believe that, if they can't trade or if they sign Malcolm Butler, they will probably trade up to select a blue chip prospect on the defensive side of the ball. In this case they trade with the 49ers for Solomon Thomas.
They give #11, #42, #76, next year's 1st and 3rd round picks for the #2.
Injury concerns will not make Malik Hooker fall, that's because he's one of the best safeties this past decade. The Bears just signed Quintin Demps, but they don't like Adrian Amos that much, and Hooker would provide a much better FS.
This has been one of the most consensus picks aside from the Myles Garrett one. Fournette and the Jags are a beatiful fit, just like a glove in a hand. He would take some pressure off Blake Bortles and, with the additions made in the Free Agency on the defensive side of the ball, the Jags could be the Cinderella of the 2017 season.
Here, the Titans go BPA. This is a toss up between Lattimore and OJ Howard. I think the Titans would be ready to gamble that Howard could fall to them at #18. Let's see. Lattimore would pair up with Logan Ryan and Johnathan Cyprien in the secondary and make a run for the division.
It seems like around the league, the consensus No.1 QB is Mitch Trubisky. With this pick, i think the Jets can afford to reach and select him to start Day 1, since he's probably better than all the guys the Jets have on their roster.
Since letting Eric Weddle leave, the Charger's defense hasn't been the same. With Adams, they get the perfect replacement for him. Adams is a leader and a really good player that can start right away and change the defense, Gus Bradley can really use a dominant safety back in his secondary.
I really think there's an possibility that the Panthers can reach for a OL here. Maybe Garrett Bolles, maybe Ramzcyk, maybe Robinson. BUT, i think they will go with a running back here since they signed Matt Kalil to a CRAZY contract. They just signed Peppers too, so i don't think DE/OLB makes a lot of sense here. Cook would really help Cam, would open a lot of opportunities to go play action, and take some pressure off of him.
I don't think Kevin Minter is the answer for the Bengals front-seven problems. Maybe they could go pass rusher here, but passing on Reuben Foster would be a mistake, and a big one. He's really good at pass coverage and a really good tackler. Bengals usually go BPA in their drafts so i think Foster would make a ton of sense here.
The first receiver off the board, Williams is a big redzone threat and that's what the Bills need. They could go OJ Howard too, if they don't believe Charles Clay is the answer right now. I do believe tho, that WR is a bigger need and they should help Tyrod Taylor here and give him some weapons to work with.
The 49ers trade out of the top 10, and still manage to draft a top-5 talent player. The newly discovered arthritis on the shoulder have him falling out of the top ten, this has happened before (see Warren Sapp, Laremy Tunsil). What about a A+ trade for the new GM of the 49ers huh? Allen would be a disruptive force up the middle fitting as a DT to help the 49ers build one of the best DL in football.
The Browns love Mitchell Trubisky, but he does not fall to them @ #12, so they settle with one of the best prospects in this draft with O.J Howard, Barnidge is 31 so OJ could sit some time and learn from him. He would obviously split some snaps. The Browns get 2 of the best prospects in the draft.
Patrick Peterson needed help last season from his fellow CBs and he did not get that, instead, he got poor playing from the CBs and the Cardinals just lost DJ Swearinger and Tony Jefferson to FA. With this pick they get Pat Pete some help to get that secondary back at where it belongs, at the top.
I personally think this will be a toss up between the best CB avaiable and the best RB avaible. In this situation, Humphrey and Lattimore are off the board and so are Cook and Fournette, because of that, the Eagles settle with McCaffrey, who is a 4-down back, who can run, catch, block and return.
Derek Barnett is a monster and for me, he is the closest you can get from Myles Garrett in production by a pass rusher in this draft class, obviously Garrett's athleticism is off the charts, but in pass rushing skills, Barnett is maybe even better than him. Colts really need pass rusher, and they pick one that's really good right here.
Ravens just cut Elvis Dumervil and they need to get to the QB and add some young talent to the front seven since T. Suggs is getting really old, real soon. Charlton is a really good pass rusher and could make an impact right away in the league.
