1.) Cleveland Browns
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M.
The Browns pass on a franchise quarterback to draft the best player available, and the conspicuous number one selection.
2.) San Francisco 49ers
Jamal Adams, S, LSU
The 49ers are a quarterback needy team, but there is not one available that is worth the value of this selection. Jamal Adams will solidify their safety tandem, and bring a toughness to the 49ers struggling defense.
3.) Chicago Bears
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
The Bears were the team that forced the least turnovers last season with just 11; Lattimore is a corner with shut down ability, and all-pro potential.
4.) Jacksonville Jaguars
O.J Howard, TE, Alabama
The Jaguars have a very talented young defense with a quarterback that has shown flashes of potential, but continues to struggle. They have to get weapons around Bortles, and O.J Howard is a threat in the short, intermediate, and vertical routes with efficient blocking skills as well.
5.) Tennessee Titans
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
The Titans need playmakers on both sides of the ball, but if they decide to stay where they are at in this draft; I believe they have to select Williams here to give their young quarterback a monster of a weapon, and a chance for their offense to get vertical from day one.
6.) Cleveland Browns (Trade)
Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
The Browns find a trade partner in the New York Jets, and move up to select their franchise quarterback.
7.) Los Angeles Chargers
Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama
Allen in my opinion has already slipped too far. Combining Allen with Joey Bosa, and the rest of the talented Chargers defense; this selection may put them over the top.
8.) Carolina Panthers
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
It is no secret the Panthers like power running football. This selection takes the pressure off of Cam Newton in the run game, and is a dream fit for both sides.
9.) Cincinnati Bengals
Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
The Bengals are lacking pass rush after losing key pieces this offseason. Thomas brings an endless motor, and solidifies that Bengals defensive front.
10.) Buffalo Bills
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
The off the field issues are a major concern for Foster, but there is no question he is a top five talent in this draft, and a player with one of the highest ceilings.
11.) New Orleans Saints
Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee
The Saints solidify their defensive front with the pass rusher that they need desperately.
12.) New York Jets (Trade)
Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
The trade with the Browns allows the Jets to get more draft selections, and they take the best player available that can help shape up their secondary.
13.) Arizona Cardinals
Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
The Cardinals have a roster that looks like they can be a contender next season, but the play from Carson Palmer last year just was not acceptable. Watson is a proven winner and can play whenever they need him to.
14.) Philadelphia Eagles
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
The Eagles need help in the secondary, but there is no player worth their selection at this point. McCaffrey brings a Darren Sproles type of style to the team, and that is something they can use when he decides to retire.
15.) Indianapolis Colts
Haason Reddick, LB, Temple
The Colts select the Philadelphia native that can help shape up their struggling defense.
16.) Baltimore Ravens
John Ross, WR, Washington
Joe Flacco loves to air the ball out. John Ross is the fastest player ever according to the 40 yard dash, and has a tremendous skill set.
17.) Washington Redskins
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
The Redskins love to run the football and take pressure off of their quarterback. Cook can come in and start right away and bring a different dynamic to the offense.
18.) Tennessee Titans
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
The Titans need playmakers in the secondary, and Humphrey can do it all.
19.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Charles Harris, DE, Missouri
This selection will not take long if Harris is still on the board when the Buccaneers make their pick.
20.) Denver Broncos
Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama
The Broncos need help on the offensive line, and I believe Robinson is the most pro ready out of the bunch.
21.) Detroit Lions
Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
After Calvin Johnson’s retirement the Lions know you can never have too many targets for their quarterback. This is a perfect fit for both sides.
22.) Miami Dolphins
David Njoku, TE, Miami
The monster from Miami gets to stay home and bring the Dolphins offense over the top.
23.) New York Giants
Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
The Giants need help along the offensive line, and Ramczyk fits what the Giants are trying to do perfectly.
24.) Oakland Raiders
T.J Watt, LB, Wisconsin
The Raiders and Watt just seem like a perfect fit. Combining Mack and Watt will make opposing offenses very hesitant.
25.) Houston Texans
Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech
The Texans select their franchise quarterback that brings the team to the next level.
26.) Seattle Seahawks
Garrett Bolles, OT, Utah
The Seahawks offensive line is one of the worst in the league. They need to select Bolles to help protect their quarterback, and solidify the run game.
27.) Kansas City Chiefs
Takkarist McKinley, DE, UCLA
If McKinley is still available for the Chiefs; there is too much talent for him to be passed up.
28.) Dallas Cowboys
Adoree’ Jackson, CB, USC
The Cowboys need help in the secondary. There is no better selection than
Jackson who can start day one at corner, is also a special teams animal.
29.) Green Bay Packers
Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
Kamara brings a slashing, versatile back to the Packers offense that is much needed to take the pressure off Aaron Rodgers, and make this offense more versatile.
30.) Pittsburgh Steelers
Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida
This guy has Steeler written all over him. A hard hitting linebacker with pass rushing abilities, and is just an all around smart football player.
31.) Atlanta Falcons
Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky
The Falcons take the best offensive lineman in this draft that can play all five positions along the line.
32.) New Orleans Saints
Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU
With two first round selections, and a needy defense; the Saints already selected their pass rusher, now they get the playmaker they need desperately at the cornerback position.
