Published at 10/13/2017 2:23:00 AM

My first time doing this so let me know what you think, and be honest so I can try to improve. The order is based off when I started to make this Mock Draft which was on 10/11/17.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

I think they go QB with Darnold. Kizer seems like a bust, and I wasn't very fond of him in college so I'm not surprised that it hasn't worked out with him so far. He just got benched as well, so it seems that Hue Jackson will like to find a new QB this draft. Sam has the talent, and hopefully he gets out of his slump soon.

2. Giants: Trey Adams, Offensive Tackle, Washington

I think most people are going QB here, but I feel like they have one of the worst offensive lines in the league, and a franchise left tackle would really help them out, and make Eli more comfortable in the pocket. Trey Adams has had a pretty good year so far this year, and should continue to do so.

3. 49ers: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

Barkely is an amazing athlete, and he looks like he has a bright future in the NFL. With Carlos Hyde( who also is injured quite often) being a free agent they may let him go at the end of the year, and get themselves a shiny new running back for whoever the QB will be next year.

4. Chargers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

This guy is a freakishly good athlete, and can fly around the field. I think the Chargers need to still replace Eric Weddle in the secondary, and Derwin James could be the guy.

5. Bears: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

The Bears defense is better than people give them credit for, and adding another stud into the secondary wouldn't hurt . Minkah would play great next to Eddie Jackson who was his teammate at Alabama, so the chemistry could be there instantly between the two.

6. Colts: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

Arden Key is pretty developed with his pass rushing ability, and it happens to be exactly what the Colts are looking for in the draft. His versatility and size should allow him to play DE and OLB so the Colts hsould be able to move him around so he can cause mayhem on the O-Line.

7. Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

We could go O-Line, but with Jackson available I think Bruce Arians could help Jackson solve some of his accuracy, and ball placement issues to help Arizona win some games.

8. Bengals: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Mike would fit right in at RT for the Bengals whose O-Line has been awful this year to say the least.

9. Titans: Da'Ron Payne, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Payne is the man in the middle the titans desperatley need right now. He even is good enough to rush the QB consistently, with strong hands, and agile feet he is quite athletic for a guy his size.

10. Cowboys: Kevin Toliver II, Cornerback, LSU

Toliver would be a great addition to this secondary. With his size, and speed to be able to defend bigger receivers, he would play well alongside Jourdan Lewis, and Chidobe Awuzie.

11. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

The Raiders need a linebacker that can fly around, cover ground, and lift some pressure off of Mack. Smith is playing very well this season. He even defends well in pass-coverage

12. Browns: Christian Kirk, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M

I've heard comparisons to OBJ, and he does a great job of getting yards after the catch, and can become a big time receiver in the league. He is fast, agile, and elusive to make big plays in the NFL.

13. Buccaneers: Prospect not selected

They could use another shutdown caliber corner, and Iman Marshall is the guy with great height, and physicality. He also plays the run very well.

14. Dolphins: Tarvarus McFadden, Cornerback, Florida State

The Dolphins need help in the secondary, and McFadden is a big bodied corner who can be a shutdown corner the Dolphins need.

15. Redskins: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

I think Rosen will fall a bit in this draft, he isn't a very good leader, has said some things publicly that he shouldn't have and doesn't get along well in the locker room so I think that can cause issues for him during his NFL career. Aside from that he may have the best mechanics in his position in this years draft. Strong arm, and quick release.

16. Saints: Prospect not selected

Saints still need help on the defensive line, Austin Bryant can help cause mayhem on QBs for years to come.
