Scouting Report Overview: Barring some trade with another team looking to move up presumably for the quarterback of their choosing, this pick will most likely be Laremy Tunsil to help protect their investment in Marcus Mariota.
Scouting Report Overview: If it were up to me in Cleveland, I’d go with the next best player available in Jalen Ramsey to be a cornerstone on that defense, but I get the feeling that Hue Jackson and co. wants to draft the quarterback of the future here in Carson Wentz, who is the quarterback that is connected the most to the Browns.
Scouting Report Overview: Long-time starter and cornerstone safety Eric Weddle is now on the Baltimore Ravens, and it makes sense to replace a former superstar with a future superstar at that position in Jalen Ramsey.
Scouting Report Overview: I’m starting to get the vibe that Dallas is getting more and more interested in the idea of taking Ezekiel Elliott with fourth overall pick. He provides this team with the biggest impact of any player in this draft class and will be the immediate front-runner for OROY.
Scouting Report Overview: Despite the splashes that Jacksonville made in free agency to help bolster their defense, they still have a hole at the inside linebacker position, but there is no need to worry because arguably the most talented player in this class, Myles Jack, fits that big need.
Scouting Report Overview: The marriage between San Francisco and Colin Kaepernick appears to be headed for a divorce soon, and as a result, the 49ers have done their homework on quarterbacks like Jared Goff, who I believe is far and away the best quarterback in this class.
Scouting Report Overview: I’m sure that the Eagles would love to have their quarterback fall into their lap here, but they would most likely have to trade up to get their guy, and with some uncertainty at the cornerback position, Vernon Hargreaves makes a lot of sense here with his playmaking ability.
Scouting Report Overview: Does Joey Bosa fall this far on draft night? Maybe not, but in this scenario, this is his floor and I believe the Buccaneers would be ecstatic to see his name still on the board as an impact defensive end in their 4-3 defense.
Scouting Report Overview: Even with the acquisition of Ereck Flowers, the Giants still need help on that offensive line, particularly at left tackle, and the player that will be at the top of many boards at this point will be Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley. I’m not the biggest advocate for Stanley, but he would provide them with stability at that position.
Scouting Report Overview: Chicago is showing needs some youth and athleticism on the outside of that secondary, and with Kyle Fuller’s versatility, a player like William Jackson III could make this team better at two positions if Fuller is moved to safety with Adrian Amos. I believe Jackson III is the best overall cornerback in this class and should make a legitimate impact right away as a feared ball-hawk.
Scouting Report Overview: Rankins is the most disruptive interior pass rusher in this draft who can play in an odd or even front and have big-time production. This would be a great value pick for New Orleans.
Scouting Report Overview: The Dolphins need a linebacker who can play in space and make plays all over the field. That player could potentially be Darron Lee out of Ohio State with his athleticism, instincts, and cover skills.
Scouting Report Overview: In my opinion, the Oakland Raiders stole the offseason this year with their acquisitions on both sides of the ball, but I think that if there were one spot that I’d like them to address, it’d be at the Mike linebacker spot, which is where Alabama’s Reggie Ragland could provide an instant upgrade.
Scouting Report Overview: In every mock that you see, Laquon Treadwell is all over the board from the top ten to out of the first round entirely, but I think that if he is still available when Los Angeles is on the clock, his name will be on that card.
Scouting Report Overview: Most of “draft twitter” is not enamored with Michigan State’s Jack Conklin, but there is no doubt in my mind that he can be an impact player right away in this league as a starting right tackle, a position that the Detroit Lions need to upgrade.
Scouting Report Overview: This is a dream scenario for Atlanta fans because of the talent and impact that a top ten player like Shaq Lawson would provide to this front seven. With a young core of Vic Beasley, Shaq Lawson, Ra’Shede Hageman, and Grady Jarrett, this team has the potential to be a formidable defense going forward.
Scouting Report Overview: Noah Spence is far and away the best player on my board at this point, and I’m sure that he could be near the top of consideration for the Indianapolis Colts as well with their need for a young, athletic edge rusher.
Scouting Report Overview: Buffalo could go a bunch of different directions here, but I think that the safe pick would be Taylor Decker, offensive tackle out of Ohio State. He would give the Bills an immediate upgrade at right tackle with the ability to move to the left side in 2017 if they don’t want to pay Cordy Glenn long-term.
Scouting Report Overview: The Jets are rumored to be heavily interested in Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch, but the question is if he will get to the 20th overall pick with teams like Los Angeles and Buffalo in front of them. If Lynch is indeed on the clock, the Jets shouldn’t hesitate.
Scouting Report Overview: The Redskins have an aging defensive line that needs a boost of youth and talent to to that group. A player like Jarran Reed could man the middle of that defensive line for the next several years with big-time production against the run.
Scouting Report Overview: This would undoubtedly be a controversial pick because of his “boom” or “bust” factor, but he does have the potential to be a Desean Jackson kind of player who can absolutely take the top off of a defense, which is exactly what this Texans team needs.
Scouting Report Overview: For Minnesota to take that next step, they need to find a true number one option at wide receiver, and Josh Doctson could be the perfect mold for that role. He would be a threat all over the field, providing franchise quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with a reliable safety blanket.
Scouting Report Overview: The Bengals lost both Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency this offseason, leaving a hole at the wide receiver position opposite of AJ Green. In my opinion, Corey Coleman should be the no-brainer pick here for Cincinnati as he would complement this offense perfectly as a number two receiver who can take double teams away from AJ Green.
Scouting Report Overview: As the offseason has gone along, it is evident that the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for help in the secondary. Alexander is one of my top defensive backs left on the board and he fits the Steelers mold at the cornerback position.
Scouting Report Overview: I’m just going to put it plain as day that Seattle’s offensive line is absolutely atrocious. They can still address the position group in the draft however, and a player like Jason Spriggs fits what they like in offensive tackle prospects with his length and athleticism.
Scouting Report Overview: BJ Raji taking a hiatus from the game of football may be a relief to some Packers fans as he was starting to lose his luster on the field, but a player like Andrew Billings could be the upgrade on that defensive line that they are looking for with his power and All-Pro potential.
Scouting Report Overview: Cornerback may not be the most pressing need for Kansas City, but I’d imagine that at some point the draft they would like to replace Sean Smith with a player who has a very similar skill-set. That player could be Eli Apple, who is a long, ball-hawking cornerback, but he should be taken with caution.
Scouting Report Overview: Arizona doesn’t have a lot of pressing needs, but the center position is one of them, and Ryan Kelly is a top 20 player in my opinion. This offensive line could be one of the more dominant groups in the league if Kelly translates as well as I think he will.
Scouting Report Overview: This is another pick that could make the rest of the NFL tremble at the thought of this actually happening. A trio of Cam Newton, Mike Tolbert, and Derrick Henry is a load to stop, and as a result of the scheme fit and impact he would have in this offense, this is a nightmare for the rest of the league in terms of trying to stop this attack.
Scouting Report Overview: Jonathan Bullard is a top 20 player in this draft with big-time value this late in the round. He can line up in an odd or even front and have success has a quick, explosive three down player. It’s hard to not know where Jonathan Bullard is on the field because he consistently lives in the opponent’s backfield.
