2017 NFL Mock Draft- Final Edition

1)  Cleveland Browns- Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

For a team that needs everything, this is a great start. This is a no brainer, Garrett has all the tools to be an All-Pro. The Browns can only hope and the fans can dream.

2)  San Francisco 49ers- Jamal Adams, S, Louisiana State

It’s no secret new defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, wants to replicate the Seahawks defense with a few tweaks. And it all starts with a safety who can cover a lot of ground and tackle in space. Adams checks all those boxes.

3)  Chicago Bears- Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama

Not only can Allen stuff the run, he can get after the quarterback too. Great hands and sound technique make him a complete defensive lineman.

4)  Jacksonville Jaguars- Leonard Fournette, RB, Louisiana State

They addressed some critical needs on defense vis free agency. Now they get some help for the offense. Fournette is a game changer with a unique blend of speed and power.

5)  Tennessee Titans- Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

They need another corner opposite Jalen Ramsey. Lattimore has the ability to be a shut down corner with his immediate burst off the line, closing speed and hip technique.

6)  NY Jets- Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State

Secondary help is a priority. Hooker has great range, speed and is a ball hawk. He can come in and have an immediate impact.

7)  LA Chargers- Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

Relentless pass rusher with a great motor. Pairing him with Joey Bosa will create nightmares for opposing offensive coordinators.

8)  Carolina Panthers- Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

Quarterback, Cam Newton, is taking way too many hits. Enter Cook, who is a big time talent and is a threat as a receiver. He’s a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

9)  Cincinnati Bengals- Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama

Foster has a high football IQ and leaderships qualities. Great for the quarterback of your defense. He’s a tackling machine who can cover sideline to sideline.

10)  Buffalo Bills- Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

He may have more upside than any other defensive back. Humphrey’s combination of size, speed, athleticism and football IQ make him unique.

11)  New Orleans Saints- Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

A defensive back would have been ideal but with the elite ones off the board and Ohio State’s Gareon Conley’s possible legal issues, pressuring the quarterback is the next best thing. Barnett might be the most NFL ready edge rusher in the draft.

12)  Cleveland Browns- Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Watson is a leader and winner. He’s a proven commodity with a resume to match. No quarterback comes into the NFL a finished product but he can make all the throws plus his ability to run adds another dimension.

13)  Arizona Cardinals- Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

Trubisky has a good arm, is accurate and more elusive than given credit for. This is the perfect situation for him to sit and learn from Carson Palmer, given his limited experience.

14)  Philadelphia Eagles- Taco Chalton, DE, Michigan

With the addition of WR Alshon Jeffries via free agency, they can address their defense and pass rush specifically. Chalton has a great motor who gets after the quarterback.

15)  Indianapolis Colts- Takkarist McKinley, DE, UCLA

Defense is an absolute priority. McKinkey offers them an edge rusher who plays the run as well. It’s all about adding talent to the defense and thus is a good start.

16)  Baltimore Ravens- Hassan Reddick, OLB, Temple

They must find a replacement for an aging Terrell Suggs. Reddick is climbing up the boards. He’s very athletic, a sure tackler, covers a lot of ground and can drop back in coverage. He can also rush the quarterback off the edge.

17)  Washington Redskins- Zach Cunningham, ILB, Vanderbilt

They need a leader/playmaker in the middle of their defense. Cunningham has freakish athleticism with sideline to sideline range. Very underrated in pass coverage too.

18)  Tennessee Titans-Mike Williams,WR, Clemson

This is the perfect senerio for the Titans. They get the best receiver in the draft. A Mariota to Williams combo sounds really good. Williams has great hands, a good route running and a wide catch radius.

19)  Tampa Bay Buccaneers- OJ Howard, TE, Alabama

Quarterback Jameis Winston has the ultimate security blanket. Howard has very good hands but what separates him is what he can do after he catches it. He’s also a deep threat. And for good measure, he’s an outstanding blocker.

20)  Denver Broncos- Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

This is a solid pick who fills a critical need. Robinson excels in run blocking but is equally adept at pass protecting with his long arms. Fans will come to appreciate him with time.

21)  Detroit Lions- Charles Harris, DE, Missouri

Offense needs to be tweaked, the defense needs help. Guys who can get to the quarterback are at a premium. Harris is a pure edge rusher who can make an immediate impact.

22)  Miami Dolphins- Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

Suring up the offensive line is a prudent thing to do. Has the versatility to play tackle as well. Will need to get stronger to take on heavier interior linemen. Good hands and footwork allowing him to start immediately.

23)  New York Giants- Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

Very strong, smart and light on his feet. Uses his length to keep defensive linemen away from his body. Able to get to second level to block linebackers effectively.

24)  Oakland Raiders-Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State

McDowell can cause havoc in the interior as a run stuffer and pass rusher. Able to use his hands to shed blockers. Can add another dimension to  the Raiders defense.

25)  Houston Texans- Pat Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

Their quarterback situation is a mess. Tom Savage is the projected starter(?) Mahomes has the best arm in the draft and makes it look easy sometimes. He tends to take risks because of his arm talent. Decision making is the biggest concern at this point.

26)  Seattle Seahawks- Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

The Seahawks desperately need offensive line help. Bolles is one of the best run blocking tackles in the draft. Great acceleration & quickness for downfield blocking. Always willing to do the dirty work.

27)  Kansas City Chiefs- Obi Melifonwu, SS, Connecticut

Supreme athlete and freakish size (6’4″/220). Has surprising speed as well. He’s a big hitter who rarely misses his targets. Athletic enough to play corner too. Still learning and working on his natural instincts.

28)  Dallas Cowboys- Adoree Jackson, CB, Southern California

Secondary was hit hard during free agency. Jackson is a play-maker. An elite athlete who can help a team immediately in the return game. Solid footwork and is a willing tackler. Already has NFL swagger.

29)  Green Bay Packers- Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado

It’s no secret the cornerback situation was horrible. Awuzie is fluid and smooth on the field. Fantastic slot cover and can play the outside. Sure tackler who is an effective blitzer from the slot.  Lacks elite speed.

30)  Pittsburgh Steelers- Tim Williams, OLB, Alabama

It’s time to start grooming a replacement for James Harrison. Williams has an explosive first step and above average speed. Good at setting the edge and playing the run. He’ll need to bulk up because a speed rush alone won’t work against NFL tackles.

31)  Atlanta Falcons- Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn

They need depth along the front seven. You saw them get worn down in the Super Bowl. Lawson is a power pass rusher who also does a good job setting the edge. Non stop motor that uses his hands well on linemen.

32)  New Orleans Saints- Kevin King, CB, Washington

After getting a pass rusher with their first pick, they get a cornerback with their second first round pick. King has great size for his position. A good athlete with speed. Has the versatility to play safety. He must improve as a tackler.
