Round 1

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

There's rumors that this may be a quarterback. If that's the case, my bet would be that Cleveland will be picking here again next year and possibly the year after that. They need to take Garrett, and doing so will add a potential superstar to their defense that is severely lacking one

2. 49ers: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

I think the Solomon Thomas stuff is smoke. Thomas is a promising defense end, and could definitely be an all-pro, but Leonard Fournette has the ability to take over games as a big bodied back. 49ers take a guy that will relieve whoever is throwing the ball in 2017, and allows them to take a QB in the stacked class in 2018.

3. Bears: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Bears take a guy that can provide an 'Aaron Donald' style of disruptiveness in the middle. He would be a superstar up front for Chicago, and provide some identity there.

4. Panthers: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

TRADE: #8, #64, and a 2018 3rd for #4.

Carolina finally snags a #1 corner. They've truly missed Norman, and Lattimore will provide the Panthers with some strength in their secondary.

5. Browns: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

TRADE: #12, #52 and a 2018 2nd for Tennessee's #5.

Cleveland gets the best of both worlds with their franchise quarterback at pick five. Sure it cost them, but they now have someone to build around on offense, and they have their franchise defensive player. Truly a win.

6. Jets: Malik Hooker, Free Safety, Ohio State

New York can't pass on a potential 'Ed Reed' to play center fielder for them. Hooker will elevate the play of Claiborne and Pryor as well.

7. Chargers: Jamal Adams, Strong Safety, LSU

The Chargers grab a stud strong safety to replace the void that hasn't been filled since Eric Weddle's departure.

8. Jaguars: Garett Bolles, Offensive Tackle, Utah

Jaguars trade back and snag their guy at #8. Sure it may still be a reach at this pick, but it's much better. Bolles is a spitting image of Joe Staley, and the Jaguars truly hope that comes to fruition.

9. Bengals: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

Cincinatti would run to the podium with this pick. Thomas provide terrific value here, and would add a tough pro-bowl end to their defense that is lacking an identity.

10. Bills: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Foster is extremely high on some team's draft boards, and rightfully so. He is a the type of player to step in on day one and contribute. Foster and Ragland will be a dynamic, Alabama duo for Buffalo.

11. Saints: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

I considered a quarterback here, but it would be wise for New Orleans to beef up their defensive line with a stud like Barnett. He would play opposite Jordan, and would continue to add to a defense that is getting more impressive every day.

12. Titans: Forrest Lamp, Offensive Guard, Western Kentucky

Don't get me wrong. I could see Tennessee taking one of the safeties at #5, but here, they trade with Cleveland and grab an offensive guard who reminds some of Zach Martin. This will help their entire offense out, as currently Josh Kline and Quinton Spain are starting at guard.

13. Cardinals: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan

Don't get me wrong, I like Mike Williams' upside, but I think Corey Davis is going to be a very strong pro. Davis will replace Fitzgerald in the next few seasons, and have the benefit of learning from one of history's best in the meantime.

14. Eagles: Christian McCaffrey, Running Back, Stanford

As a Dallas fan, this would suck. McCaffrey would give Wentz an elite weapon in the run game, pass game, and return game. McCaffrey is an offensive swiss army knife, and is going to give teams fits.

15. Colts: Marlon Humphrey, Cornerback, Alabama

I considered a lot of different players here, but opted to give Indianapolis some secondary help. Humphrey could come in day one and play opposite Vontae Davis, and make their defense better.

16. Ravens: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

This would be a nasty pick. Nasty, but good. Mike Williams playing for the Ravens would provide Flacco what he has needed for awhile. A true, potential, #1 receiver.
