Reid Mock Draft 1.0
Published at 2/11/2018 2:08:43 PM

The only trades I projected were ones that either already happened or ones that aren't motivated by draft picks. (Ex. I had the Pats getting an early second rounder for Jimmy G, but I won't have any trades where a team trades up only to select a player in the draft.

Round 1

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

I literally haven't seen a mock draft where this isn't the pick. The best player in this draft by far, Garrett has a 108 on a scale to 100 on Derek Whoolery's scale from National Mock Drafts.

2. 49ers: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

Kyle Shanahan needs a quarterback besides Blaine Gabbert, so he gets a Kirk Cousins-type thrower with great arm strength and deep accuracy. The Niners really need a receiving core, but they'll have to wait till the second round for that.

3. Bears: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

Other possibilities are Johnathan Allen and Deshone Kizer. Thomas doesn't fit the Bears scheme, but Eddie Goldman is at DT and he's played well. Willie Young and Lamarr Houston are a free agent and a prime candidate for release, respectively. Thomas can replace Unrein at the DE spot, or replace Young and Houston at OLB.

4. Jaguars: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

A playmaking, speedy, smart safety out of LSU. Adams is an Eric Berry type DB who played free and strong safety with great size. A 94 on Whoolery's scale, he describes Adams as "more Strong than Free". Tashaun Gipson hasn't played well in his first year there, and Cyprien may be gone, and Adams can give them an explosive replacement,

5. Titans: Malik Hooker, Safety, Ohio State

Malik Hooker is a fantastic specimen that can be a Reggie Nelson type player. He has perhaps the best ball skills in the entire draft, and the Titans need him bad. Their starting safeties are Da'Norris Searcy and Rashad Johnson.

6. Jets: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

The Jets signed one of the biggest free agent busts last offseason in Forte, and his legs are pretty much completely stale now. I would cut him, and bring in an Adrian Peterson type runner who can give this aging roster one final push to the playoffs before the Jets possibly go into complete rebuild mode.

7. Chargers: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Best player available here, Allen is a stud. Brandon Mebane is getting older, and if he keeps playing well, Gus Bradley's new 4-3 scheme would put Mebane and Allen in the starting lineup.

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

Stewart is old and is most likely going to be released. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fuzzy Whittaker aren't adequate starters, so a dynamic player with Jamaal Charles-like cutting ability, and Le'veon Bell like patience and vision would be extremely helpful to give the Panthers a chance to go back to the playoffs.

9. Bengals: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

Vontaze Burfict is a good talent, but these dirty plays are gonna add up. The Bengals might not want him on the roster in a few years. Plus, across from Carlos Dunlap, that end spot is filled my Michael Johnson, who isn't playing adequately. Barnett fits the scheme well, and will be a great pass rusher to compliment Geno Atkins' run blocking ability.

10. Bills: DeShone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame

Kizer reminds me of Ryan Tannehill, not a fantastic deep passer, with average legs. Now that's not to say he'll have the same career as Tannehill. I could see him having a much better, or much worse, career. Kizer just might have a (finally) healthy Sammy Watkins playing next season, but McCoy might be reaching the end of his career. Kizer has a great body, but his head must improve.

11. Saints: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Saints have big needs on every level of the defense. Foster is a defensive player. Therefore, he is needed, and the Saints can finally give Drew Brees a fighting chance by building a defense with Cam Jordan, Rankins, Anthony, and now Foster.

12. Browns: Marlon Humphrey, Cornerback, Alabama

Joe Haden might get traded, and he's always injured anyway. Humphrey is an athletic, tough, strong player, who reminds me of Browns rival Jimmy Smith. He doesn't really have a specific weakness, his zone coverage and tackling are his weak points, but they are still both decent.

13. Cardinals: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

Fitzgerald is nearing the end of his career, John Brown has a sickle-cell trait, and he hasn't played well, Floyd is gone, and J.J. Nelson is strictly a deep threat. Mike Williams is a strong, jump ball receiver who can give Palmer another threat.

14. Colts: Chris Wormley, Defensive Tackle, Michigan

Kendall Langford is maybe the colts best player in the front seven... KENDALL LANGFORD... a player that wouldn't start on a lot of others teams... is the Colt's BEST PLAYER IN THE FRONT SEVEN... so they need Wormley. A lot.

15. Eagles: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan

Wentz's #1 priority has to be either to fix his faulty mechanics or to get a good receiver besides Jordan Matthews. And they need more than 1, so even if they get someone in free agency, (Desean Jackson, anyone?) Davis still makes sense here.

16. Ravens: Quincy Wilson, Cornerback, Florida

A second team All-SEC corner, Wilson would give the Ravens the ability to put Shareece Wright in the slot. Reports are that Wilson is skilled at recognizing run vs pass, but his open-field tackling aren't great.
