Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Titans: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss

Mariota had his rookie season cut short last year. The Titans need to protect their young QB if they want him to be successful.
NFL Comparison: Tyron Smith

2. Browns: Carson Wentz, Quarterback, North Dakota State

In a division full of big QBs with strong arms the Browns finally get one of their own. This picks fills a hole that's been there since the team returned to Cleveland in 1999.
NFL Comparison: Blake Bortles

3. Chargers: Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback, Florida State

Ramsey might just be the best player in the draft. He has the versatility to play both corner and safety at the next level but he projects better as a safety. Ramsey is a good replacement for Eric Weddle.
NFL Comparison: Charles Woodson

4. Cowboys: Joey Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State

With Greg Hardy out the door, and Randy Gregory suspended for the first four games, the 'Boys could use some help on their pass rush. Bosa can play anywhere along the line. Rod Marinelli is going to have fun with Bosa.
NFL Comparison: Ryan Kerrigan

5. Jaguars: Myles Jack, Outside Linebacker, UCLA

Jack is extremely versatile and fits into Gus Bradley's defense perfectly. Jack is an insanely versatile and athletic LB. Jack seems to be recovering quickly after being sidelined for most of last season with a torn meniscus.
NFL Comparison: NaVarro Bowman

6. Ravens: DeForest Buckner, Defensive End, Oregon

The Ravens have a lot of holes that need filling. This is a team that likes to win in the trenches, and Buckner will help them do just that. They've needed help up front since they lost Haloti Ngata.
NFL Comparison: Calais Campbell

7. 49ers: Jared Goff, Quarterback, California

Goff is a great fit in Chip Kelly's scheme, and with Kaepernick wanting out of San Fran, this pick just makes since. Goff is the safest QB in this draft and will be ready to play day one.
NFL Comparison: Matt Ryan

8. Eagles: Ezekiel Elliott, Running Back, Ohio State

The DeMarco Murray experiment failed in Philly. Elliott is by far the best RB in this draft. He's a fast, one cut RB, who can catch the ball out of the backfield, and block.
NFL Comparison: Arian Foster

9. Buccaneers: Vernon Hargreaves, Cornerback, Florida

Hargreaves is the best cover corner in this class. He lacks size but he makes up for that with outstanding ball skills, and coverage ability. Mike Smith needs help on the back end of his defense and he just got it.
NFL Comparison: Joe Haden

10. Giants: Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

This may not be the sexy pick, but this makes too much since. The Giants are going all in with Eli, and that means they need to make sure his blindside is protected.
NFL Comparison: Lane Johnson

11. Bears: Leonard Floyd, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

The Windy City could use some help in their pass rush and Floyd will do just that. Floyd is a great fit in the Bears 3-4 defense. He can both rush the passer and play in coverage. The biggest knock on Floyd is his size he is long and lanky, which will make it hard for him to set the edge against the run. He may only be a role player early in his career.
NFL Comparison: Randy Gregory

12. Saints: Sheldon Rankins, Defensive Tackle, Louisville

Rankins is undersized but he makes up for that with rare lateral quickness and footwork. Pairing him with Cameron Jordan will immediately make the Saints defensive front a force to be reckoned with. Rankings knows how to get in the backfield and make plays.
NFL Comparison: Aaron Donald

13. Dolphins: Kevin Dodd, Defensive End, Clemson

Kevin Dodd is a relentless pass rusher, and he knows how to consistently get penetration against the run. Dodd is a high motor guy who doesn't take plays off. With Olivier Vernon leaving via free agency, this pick takes the pressure off of Cameron Wake.
NFL Comparison: Michael Bennett

14. Raiders: Reggie Ragland, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Ragland is the type of LB the Crimson Tide regularly produces. He's a big hitting, run stuffer who leaves something to be desired in the speed department. He makes up for his lack of speed with instincts and size. Reggie McKenzie loves Alabama players and he gets another one in Ragland.
NFL Comparison: DeMeco Ryans

15. Rams: Laquon Treadwell, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss

The Rams could use some help in the redzone. Treadwell is a big receiver who knows how to high point the football. Treadwell won't burn anybody with his speed at the next level, but he will win using his incredible feel for the position, hands, and large frame to shield DBs from the ball. Tread well will thrive in LA if they can find a QB to get him the ball.
NFL Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins

16. Lions: A'Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Lions have been starving for a defensive lineman ever since Ndamukong Suh took his talents to South Beach. Robinson is a big lineman who uses his power to push the pocket in the passing game. He also is big enough to eat up blocks, freeing his LBs against the run. Robinson needs to work on his consistency and pad level at the next level.
NFL Comparison: Marcell Dareus
