- Cleveland Browns- EDGE Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
Garrett is the biggest stud in this draft. The Browns do not need more draft picks. They need stars. The card is ready to be turned in.
- San Francisco 49ers- S Jamal Adams, LSU
Adams is a do it all safety who can immediately help the back end of the Niners defense. I believe they’d prefer to trade down though.
- Chicago Bears- CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State
The Bears secondary needs help. Lattimore has the ability to become a shutdown type CB.
- Jacksonville Jaguars- DL Jonathan Allen, Alabama
Tom Coughlin won Super Bowls with great defensive lines. I believe he will build the Jaguars in the mold of those teams.
- Tennessee Titans- DL Solomon Thomas, Stanford
Thomas is a monster and an immediate upgrade inside and out on the Titans defense.
- New York Jets- RB Leonard Fournette, LSU
A QB could go here, as could Malik Hooker, but they need to improve their offense and Fournette is the fastest way to do it
- Los Angeles Chargers- S Malik Hooker, Ohio State
For the second year in a row, the Chargers head to Columbus to take an instant impact defender. Hooker is the best centerfielder in this draft.
- Carolina Panthers- RB Christian McCaffery
Cam needs help on offense. He has big targets around the field, but a swiss army knife like McCaffery would do wonders for the Panthers.
- Cincinnati Bengals- WR Mike Williams, Clemson
A stud wide out to pair with A.J. Green and to help open up the passing offense for the Bengals.
- Buffalo Bills- TE O.J. Howard, Alabama
Tyrod Taylor is staying in Buffalo, so maybe the Bills should get him some weapons. Howard is a pure tight end who can do everything.
- New Orleans Saints- EDGE Charles Harris, Missouri
Harris is a very good pass rusher who needs to get better against the run, but can be a double digit sack guy immediately.
- Cleveland Browns- QB Mitchell Trubisky, North Carolina
Trubisky, despite only starting 13 games, has shown the ability to be an NFL QB with above average accuracy, arm strength, and athleticism.
- Arizona Cardinals- CB Marlon Humphrey, Alabama
Getting Pat Mahomes to be the heir apparent to Carson Palmer would be great, but Arizona is still capable of being a playoff team so getting Humphrey’s immediate impact would be huge.
- Philadelphia Eagles- WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
Even with the signing of Alshon Jeffery, the Eagles need to get Carson Wentz more help. Davis has the talent to be a number one guy for a long time.
- Indianapolis Colts- DE Derek Barnett, Tennessee
Barnett, at times, was as good a pass rusher as Myles Garrett. His rush ability will immediately improve the Colts defense
- Baltimore Ravens- WR John Ross, Washington
After losing Steve Smith to retirement, the Ravens need help at the WR spot. Adding the fastest man in the draft with big arm Joe Flacco could make for an exciting duo.
- Washington Redskins- DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State
McDowell has the skills to be a star. The Redskins could use a monster in the middle of their defense and McDowell
- Tennessee Titans- CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado
Awuzie can play CB or FS and excel at either. Even with free agent additions Cyprien and Ryan, adding Awuzie and Thomas in round one would be a coup for the Titans.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers- RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State
Cook’s draft stock has been slipping, but reuniting with Jameis Winston could be a perfect fit for him and the Buccaneers.
- Denver Broncos- OT Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin
The Broncos still have a loaded defense, so this pick will likely be offense. Adding Ramczyk to their offensive line could be a weapon for them on offense. His strength and athleticism are perfect fits for Mike McCoy’s offense.
- Detroit Lions- LB Haason Reddick, Temple
Reddick can play off the edge and be a stud weak side LB. Perfect fit for the Lions.
- Miami Dolphins- OG Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky
Miami needs to keep Ryan Tannehill upright and open holes for Jay Ajayi if they want any chance of winning. Lamp will help them do that day one.
- New York Giants- QB Pat Mahomes, Texas Tech
Eli won’t play forever. Mahomes, in time, could be the best QB in this draft. He has amazing arm talent.
- Oakland Raiders- TE David Njoku, Miami
The Raiders could pick a linebacker, like Jarrad Davis, or go secondary with this pick, but Njoku is someone they cannot pass on at this point. Tight end size with wide out ability, Njoku would be a great addition to the Raiders young and potent offense.
- Houston Texans- QB Deshaun Watson, Clemson
A Super Bowl caliber defense and a giant hole behind center. The Texans take Watson here and hope he develops quickly behind Tom Savage.
- Seattle Seahawks- CB Kevin King, Washington
Whether Richard Sherman is dealt or not, King with his combination of size and talent is a perfect fit for the Seahawks defense.
- Kansas City Chiefs- EDGE Takkarist McKinley, UCLA
The Chiefs do not have any glaring needs which will allow them to take McKinley late in round one and allow him to develop into a Tamba Hali clone.
- Dallas Cowboys- LB Reuben Foster, Alabama
The top LB in this draft falls to the Cowboys due to a mix of off the field issues. He is an immediate impact player.
- Green Bay Packers- RB Joe Mixon, Oklahoma
The Packers need a running game behind Aaron Rodgers and there may not be a more talented runner in this draft than Mixon. He does come with baggage, but I believe the Packers would have the support system around him to allow him to succeed.
- Pittsburgh Steelers- S Jabrill Peppers, Michigan
Peppers will give the Steelers and in the box safety who can also move around the defense for them.
- Atlanta Falcons-DE Taco Charlton, Michigan
An edge rusher to add to the young Falcons defense. Charlton doesn’t set the edge well against the run, but he can get to the QB.
- New Orleans Saints- CB Quincy Wilson, Florida
After averaging almost 30 points per game and losing nine times in 2016, the Saints double up on defense in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.
- Cleveland- S Obi Melifonwu, Uconn
- San Francisco- EDGE TJ Watt, Wisconsin
- Jacksonville- TE Evan Engram, Ole Miss
- Chicago- S Budda Baker, Washington
- LA Rams- WR Zay Jones, East Carolina
- LA Chargers- Curtis Samuel, Ohio State
- NY Jets- QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame
- Carolina- CB Adoree Jackson, USC
- Cincinnati-LB Jarrad Davis, Florida
- New Orleans- QB Davis Webb, Cal
- Philadelphia-RB Alvin Kamara, Tennesee

- Pittsburgh-CB Sidney Jones, Washington
- Atlanta-TE Adam Shaheen, Ashland
