The NFL draft creeps closer and closer and rumors are swirling up everywhere. Tomorrows mock drafts will change, in fact, in 6 hours the mock will (might) change.

They say an artist’s work is never complete, so neither is a mock draft.     Do you FanDuel ?


Round 1



1 Los Angeles(7-9) Jared Goff, QB, California California kid takes over for the Rams. Day one starter
2 Philadelphia (7-9) Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz? Why not! This is a QB driven league and you can’t have too many good things
3 San Diego (4-12) Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Mis San Diego had the worst pass-blocking grade in the league last season. Rivers is a little safer for the remainder of his career.
4 Dallas (4-12) Joey Bosa, DE/OLB, Ohio State Ramsey looks good & is tempting, but Bosa is the pick (and my personal favorite in the whole draft)
5 Jacksonville (5-11) Jalen Ramsey, S/CB, Florida State Tweener by position and experience (FS/CB) Elite track athlete. Will the Jags use him correctly?
6 Baltimore (5-11) DeForest Buckner, DE/DT, Oregon The Ravens need the dominate D again DeForest brings the D back to the Ravens
7 San Francisco (5-11) Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis Chip gets a new toy to play with and Kaepernick wants out.
8 Cleveland (3-13) Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss Top WR prospect and a new weapon for RGIII. Great pick, but they were expecting Paxton Lynch to be available.
9 Tampa Bay (6-10) Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida Best cover corner in the draft
10 New York Giants (6-10) Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame Protecting Eli is probably the smartest choice
11 Chicago (6-10) Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State The Bears do not have a left tackle on the roster, but a 5-tech DE would look great here too.
12 New Orleans (7-9) Shaq Lawson, DE. Clemson Saints need a defensive rebuild. Shaq is a great piece to put pressure on opposing QB’s.
13 Miami (5-11) Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State Blocking, receiving and rushing… he does it all (really really good)
14 Oakland (7-9) Myles Jack, LB, UCLA Knee injury and durabiltiy issues cause a slight slide & the Raiders couldn’t be happier. Will Reggie gamble? Del Rio will…
15 Tennessee (3-13) Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia Pass rush and versatility. Floyd can play ILB and OLB, so he could actually lead the team in sacks and tackles
16 Detroit (7-9) Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State Decker can play both tackle positions and he excels in the run game (something DET needs a lot of help with)
17 Atlanta (8-8) Jonathan Bullard, DE, Florida Very strong D-Lineman. Can play inside and outside, the next Michael Bennett (one of my favorite players)
18 Indianapolis (8-8) Noah Spence, OLB, Eastern Kentucky One of the most talented pass rushers in the draft, but comes with some character issues.
19 Buffalo (8-8) Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville Sheldon slides a little bit, but he’s a perfect fit in Buffalo. The Ryan Brothers are both happy.
20 New York Jets (10-6) Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State Cook is better than you think and NYJ moves on from Fitz.
21 Washington (9-7) Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama Savvy and talented interior NT with good movement and eager to improve. Reed could also play 5-tech (so he’s versatile)
22 Houston (9-7) Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor Investing on Brock Lobster? Must supply with weapons
23 Minnesota (11-5) Josh Doctson WR, TCU Can catch anything and is an overachiever
24 Cincinnati (12-4) Robert Nkemdiche, DE/DT, Ole Miss Tons of talent, but a slight risk factor. He has Bengal written all over him.
25 Pittsburgh (10-6) William Jackson III, CB Houston NT is tempting but can be found later. WJIII can be a great CB and a good system fit
26 Seattle (10-6) Germain Ifedi, OT, Texas A&M Filling in the holes that free agency left the Seahawks (o-line help needed). Feels like James Carpenter 2.0.  DT could also be a target now that Mebane is gone.
27 Green Bay (10-6) Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor There’s a new bull in town. Billings is massive and takes over for BJ Raji.
28 Kansas City (11-5) Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson A bit of a slide for Alexander (eco maniac), but KC is happy with it. Sean Smith replacement.
New England* (12-4) — Pick Forfeited for Deflategate
29 Arizona (13-3) Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama Instant leader and big tackler, on an already powerful defense
30 Carolina (15-1) Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State Norman leaves, and finding a quick replacement means 1st round CB
31 Denver (12-4) Cody Whitehair, G, Kansas State ZBS – Denver lost 4 O-lineman in free agency and Whitehair can start the rebuild process

Round 2



32 Cleveland (3-13) Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson A new pass rushing OLB in Cleveland. Dodd has prototypical size for the position, but he’s a 1 year wonder.
33 Tennessee (3-13) Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech NT aren’t supposed to be this quick.
34 Dallas (4-12) Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State His speed attracts Jerry Jones
35 San Diego (4-12) A’Shawn Robinson, DE/DT, Alabama Big intimidator and run stuffer at DE. Needs to develop pass rushing moves
36 Baltimore (5-11) Joshua Garnett, OG, Stanford Best guard prospect in the draft and helps improve the run game.
37 San Francisco Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State Chip gets a big target and a true #1 WR
38 Jacksonville (5-11) Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State Jax needs many pass rushers as they can get
39 Tampa Bay (6-10) Shilique Calhoun, OLB/DE, Michigan State Good leader, nice game and should develop into a very good pass rusher.
40 New York Giants (6-10) Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame Fast Fuller will make Eli’s stats look amazing. He’ll only need 2 or 3 balls per game, and he’ll get 7 or 8 TD’s year one.
41 Chicago (6-10) Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi St Chicago is looking for key pieces in converting completely to a 34. Great 5 tech DE prospect
42 Miami (5-11) Artie Burns, CB, Miami Doesn’t travel far from campus.
43 Tennessee (3-13) Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas With all the new picks for the TItans, weapons for Marriota is a very good thing
44 Oakland (7-9) Karl Joseph, SS, West Virginia Henry looks like an Al Davis pick
45 Tennessee (3-13) Le’Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech The new right tackle
46 Detroit (7-9) Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama 3-tech DT in the mold of Aaron Donald
47 New Orleans (7-9) Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech Saints draft heavy on D
48 Indianapolis (8-8) Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana Great left tackle prospect, should go earlier.
49 Buffalo (8-8) Kamalei Correa, OLB/DE, Boise State Continue to find the correct pieces converting to a 34D (The Ryan’s prefer the 34)
50 Atlanta (8-8) Deion Jones, OLB, LSU Linebackers are ATL’s biggest need (Pass rushers too)
51 New York Jets (10-6) Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA Snacks is gone, here’s a nice replacement
52 Houston (9-7) TJ Green, FS, Clemson Tall Fast safety can cover like a CB
53 Washington (9-7) Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama Best Center prospect, unless Whitehair turns Center
54 Minnesota (11-5) Vonn Bell, SS, Ohio State Very impressive cover safety
55 Cincinnati (12-4) Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma Paired up with AJ Green, great combo
56 Seattle (10-6) Carl Nassib, DE, Penn State Mebane’s replacement (and possibly an upgrade)
57 Green Bay (10-6) Kentrell Brothers, ILB, Missouri BJ Raji’s replacement
58 Pittsburgh (10-6) Austin Johnson, DT, Penn St. Stout Nosetackle
59 Kansas City (11-5) Adolphus Washington, DT, Ohio State Big enough to play 5-Tech DE, with some pass rushing ability.
60 New England (12-4) Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech very talented RB. Can do it all
61 New England (12-4) Tyler Boyd, WR, Pitt can play the slot, but might be taller than all the WR in New England
62 Carolina (15-1) Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn New Right tackle
63 Denver (12-4) Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State 5 Tech DE is the target here, but Denver gets their future signal caller here.

  1. I like Cravens to the Browns but Treadwell is a reach and not the best available and Dodd is just a terrible fit.

    • Yes, Treadwell is a bit of a reach, but he’s the #1 WR. He’s not a blazer, but he’s an aggressive and physical player and I can see Hugh Jackson taking him early. (plus, it’s good to be different). Thank you for the reply!
