The Giants need to get rid of Eli Manning, since he has been playing horrible. They had a chance to replace Eli last season but opted to pick Saquon Barkley instead. Luckily, they have a chance to select Justin Herbert this year. Herbert has the skill set of an NFL QB and has been very solid at Oregon so far. Especially in the game against Stanford he showed why he is the consensus top Quarterback in this draft.
The Colts have been drafting well, but they are still in rebuild mode. They can use some help at their D-Line. Ed Oliver would be a great player that could start in their 4-3 scheme. Ed Oliver has been compared to current best defensive player in the NFL, Aaron Donald.
The 49ers could use a franchise pass-rusher like Nick Bosa. He is by far the best player available and fills a need for the team that could use some help alongside other high first rounder Solomon Thomas who has been disappointing so far. Bosa was dominant the first couple weeks in CFB and by far the best edge rusher before his injury against TCU.
Quinnen Williams is the next big thing out of Alabama. Although players like Raekwon Davis had more preseason hype, Williams has been the best Bama player. According to PFF he is the highest rated defensive player in college football. The Cardinals should/could go best player available, which also fills a need.
Just like in my last mock draft I had Brown to the Falcons, but later in the draft. The Falcons don't have many holes in their roster, so they could go best player available with Brown. He easily could've been the first defensive lineman off the board in any other draft. Just goes to show how deep this class is. Brown is a great rusher and run defender. He could end up being a great addition next to Grady Jarrett.
After trading Khalil Mack, the Raiders need some edge rush talent. Bosa is already taken, but Clelin Ferrell could be a great addition for the Raiders. Ferrell is the best out of the four defensive lineman out of Clemson. He has a great skill-set to become a successful player in the NFL.
The Cowboys are in desperate need of receiving help, but there is no value here with the 7th overall pick. They could potentially trade out of this spot. But they could use some safety help since they were already interested in Earl Thomas. Deionte Thompson has experienced a breakout season for Alabama, and he is very similar to Malik Hooker who went 15h overall to the Colts in 2017. Thompson grades out as the second-best defender in CFB according to PFF
Deshaun Watson is in desperate need of some half decent protection. Jonah Williams provides excellent value here at 8. He has been a 3-year starter for Alabama and has been very impressive. Although there are some questions about his size but he his athleticism could make up for that.
The Eagles always go best player available and are known for beefing up their D-Line. Having the 9th overall pick means a disappointing season, but they have the chance to scoop up one of the best players in the draft: Jeffery Simmons. He has had some off-the-field problems, so that could lead to certain teams passing on him. He has been the 5th highest graded defensive player according to PFF. He possesses great burst speed and strength, which is key for interior rushers.
The Jets used to have a great defensive line, but times have changed with the departures of Wilkerson and Richardson. Williams could use a partner in crime and Gary would be a great one. He possesses great strength, bulk and is very athletic.
The Legion of Boom days are over in Seattle, so they can start rebuilding for a new one. A great piece would be Williams who has been an excellent cover corner for DBU. He has great ball instinct; long arms and his frame makes him the perfect corner. They could pair him with Shaquill Griffin to form a strong young cornerback duo.
Kyle Williams is only getting older and overpaying Lotulelei has not been a great idea so far. Dre’Mont Jones has a first round skill-set and has been playing up to his potential this season. He has been the 3rd highest graded defensive player in College. He has a great frame, thickness, long arms and needed athleticism for a defensive tackle.
This is another match I already had in my first mock draft. But I still love the value and need here for the Lions. Lawrence is raw but has a lot of untapped potential. Some scouts say he could end up being the next Suh. Happens to be that the Lions need a player like Suh since he left.
The Broncos No Fly Zone has been very disappointing this season. Former first rounder Bradley Roby has been mediocre at best. So, they could use some corner help to go with Chris Harris Jr. DeAndre Baker has been one of the best corners in CFB. According to PFF he is their best corner in this year’s draft. Baker has been a physical playmaker for the Bulldogs and has the ball skills you would like to see for a CB1.
The Packers need to replace Clay Matthews at some point since he has not been a real dominant player for a couple of years now. Add tall athletic Josh Allen and you have yourself a great fit. Allen has great pass rush skills and good instincts. Kentucky has experienced a surprisingly good season thanks to Allen that has been racking up sacks for the Wildcats.
The Vikings have experienced a disappointing season so far. Their multimillion dollar investment Kirk Cousins could use some insurance. Greg Little is a raw prospect that has been lived up to his potential at Ole Miss after being a 5-star recruit. But since the Vikings have O-Line needs and a not a lot of needs they can take a gamble on Little. He has all the ideal measurables for the position and has plenty of college experience.
