DTG's 5th Annual Mock 7.0 Update with Round 2!
Published at 4/22/2018 8:28:39 PM

In 2016, I got 5 picks correct. In 2017, I only got 4. But, in my defense, I didn't update after March. I'll try to update more frequently this year to improve. And if you don't like my picks, just know I'm already admitting how bad I am at this. You can probably breathe a sigh of relief since I'll be wrong haha.

Round 1

1. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

Barkley is the best player in the draft. He's been on top for me for the majority of the offseason. The reason is simple, even if NYG trade back, CLE still gets a good QB.

2. Giants: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

Eli is going nowhere. I think the Giants are more likely to take a OG to pair next to Solder and keep Eli healthy but Chubb is too good to pass up. Bills would like to trade up, but they really don't need to. One of the top QBs will fall.

3. Jets: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

I predicted the Colts-Jets trade in February. I think most will be surprised to see Mayfield be the first QB off the board.

4. Browns: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

See, Browns don't need to take Darnold or Allen first. One will be there at #4.

5. Broncos: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

A lot of people think Denver is going to draft a QB in the 1st. I just don't see it. They traded Talib to the Rams and have a hole in their secondary.

6. Buccaneers: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

I don't like putting in details for trades, but since people will gripe I'll give it a try.
TAM: #6 pick
IND: #7 pick and 5th rounder in 2018
Small return, but it's moving up one spot. I don't think anyone else is giving IND anything either.

7. Colts: Marcus Davenport, Defensive End, Texas-San Antonio

Davenport blew up the combine. I think his stock is soaring to a top 10 grade. People love his athleticism.

8. Bears: Calvin Ridley, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Almost a no-brainer pick here. Chicago needs a leading receiver that isn't also getting handoffs regularly. Their WR corps is terrible.

9. 49ers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

San Fran is building a strong defense. I wanted to give them a WR here, but I think pairing Sherman with a dynamic player like Fitzpatrick is the safer option.

10. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

I've had McGlincy slotted here for awhile, but I'm changing it up. Apparently Gruden loves Smith's game.

11. Dolphins: Da'Ron Payne, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

After cutting Suh, the Dolphins DL needs help.

12. Bills: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The reason the Bills didn't need to trade up is simple. One of the QBs will fall. In this case two do. After the Browns pick, there are no teams that are dying for a QB. Now, this does put them at risk of someone (like the Cards) jumping ahead of them. There'd still be one QB remaining if that does happen. Bills do not need to trade up again.

13. Redskins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Josh Norman needs help. He's still the only DB on the Redskins worth anything. James would have been the first DB off the board if he wasn't injured for much of last year.

14. Packers: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

The Packers defense could use a huge body to clog running lanes. Vea would command double teams on every play, which would open things up for Clay Matthews. Pairing him with Wilkerson would make the DL nasty.

15. Cardinals: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

I really didn't think I'd do an update with Rosen falling out of the first 3 picks. Crazy, but here we are. The rumors about his personality are enough to drag his stock down.

16. Ravens: Billy Price, Offensive Guard, Ohio State

Baltimore lost its starting C in free agency. Price is much better anyways. Combined with their signings, the Ravens don't look that bad for next year.
