  • Sonny E - Final Mock Draft 2017 - 2 rounder with a few trades

    • Browns - Myles Garrett (DE)
    Brings the same hype as a Jadaveon Clowney or Julius Peppers. Freak athlete with a rare combination of size, speed and power. He’ll be chasing down QBs for years. Now, lets just see how the Browns screw this up.
    • Panthers - Solomon Thomas (DE) — Trade with 49ers
    In this trade, the Panthers package the 8th and 40th pick to move up six spots and take Thomas. Most boards have him ranked as the 2nd overall prospect in the draft and he’s an ideal fit as defensive end in a 4-3 scheme. In Carolina, Thomas will have the great luxury of learning the position from both Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson, and has the potential to lead the league in sacks one day.
    • Bears - Jonathan Allen (DE)
    Allen dominated in college. He’s a great fit for defensive end in the Bears 3-4 scheme. He may be a little undersized in height at 6’3, but he’s both strong and quick for 290 lbs. Didn’t have the best combine results, like benching only 21 times, but Terrell Suggs ran a 4.8 and only benched 18 times at his combine and he turned out alright.
    • Jaguars - Leonard Fournette (RB)
    The team spent a lot of money on the defense in free agency. More than anything, the team could use help on the offensive line, but what’s the next best thing to help take pressure off of Blake Bortles? How about a running back with the size of a linebacker and the speed of a wide receiver. Fournette brings as much hype as Adrian Peterson or Ezekiel Elliot.
    • Titans - Marshon Lattimore (CB)
    Top rated cornerbacks never last long in the draft. Lattimore is the closest thing to a shutdown corner and the Titans don’t have much depth at the position. Recently signed Logan Ryan is a better fit for the slot and Jason McCourty is hardly a number one on the outside.
    • Browns - Jamal Adams (SS) — Trade with Jets
    In this trade, the Browns package the 12th and 52nd pick to move up and take arguably the best overall prospect not named Myles Garrett. Adams is a hard-hitting, game-changing safety that can impact a defense like Kam Chancellor does. Oh, did I mention he just ran a 4.3 at his pro day? I think he’s worth the extra 2nd rounder.
    • Chargers - Malik Hooker (FS)
    I think the Chargers take either Adams or Hooker if available at this spot. The defense allowed the 4th most points in the league last year, and there’s a big vacancy at safety since Eric Weddle left San Diego. The secondary lacks a playmaker and Hooker is being praised as an absolute ballhawk in center field.
    • 49ers - Deshaun Watson (QB) — Trade with Panthers
    By trading with the Panthers, the Niners pick up an extra 2nd round pick in a loaded draft, and still come away with the QB of their choice. I don’t know why people are sleeping on Watson by projecting him as a late 1st or early 2nd round selection. In my opinion, Watson has Russell Wilson type qualities. He’s got all the intangibles: Proven winner, shows up in big games, coachable, can make all the throws. What else do you want in a franchise QB?
    • Bengals - Reuben Foster (ILB)
    Some scouts are saying Foster has ‘character issues’ but that hasn’t stopped the Bengals from taking ‘red flag’ type players before. Foster is a speedy, hard-hitting playmaker with a nasty side, and the Bengals are super thin at linebacker depth. He can be a nice compliment player to Vontaze Burfict.
    • Bills - OJ Howard (TE)
    The Bills ranked 30th in passing last season and they badly need to improve their passing game. Wide receiver is big weakness, but Howard is way too good to pass up here. He’s big, fast, athletic, great hands, good blocker and he’s really the prototypical tight end any team looks for. Howard can be the next Gronk or Tony Gonzalez one day. Special player.
    • Saints - Derek Barnett (DE)
    Lets be honest, the team defense is atrocious. They need playmakers at every defensive position, but upgrading the pass rush is a must when you play in the same division as Matt Ryan, Cam Newton and Jamies Winston. Barnett is a talented edge rusher who will be a welcome addition to the defensive line.
    • Jets - Ryan Ramczyk (OT) — Trade with Browns
    Jets move down six spots, pick up an extra 2nd round pick, and have their pick of the litter for offensive linemen. Ramcyzk might be a little bit of a reach here, but its a weak draft class for offensive linemen and the Jets desperately need him. Ramcyzk is a big bodied pass protecter out of Wisconsin and he’s rated as the best offensive tackle in the draft.
    • Cardinals - Mike Williams (WR)
    I believe this year will be the Cardinals last chance at Super Bowl glory. Carson Palmer could always use a big, strong and fast target like Williams, and I see him as a great complimentary piece to Fitzgerald and the other speedy wideouts on the roster. Its a nice situation for Williams as he can learn the position from one of the all-time greats.
    • Eagles - Dalvin Cook (RB)
    Reports indicate Ryan Mathews days are numbered in Philly and Darren Sproles has never been an every down back. This is a no-brainer choice if Cook is available here. He’s a talented, shifty runner with game breaking moves and speed, and can help take the pressure off Carson Wentz. In my opinion, Cook is 1B, if Fournette is 1A in this draft.
    • Colts - Takkarist McKinley (OLB)
    Indy gave up the 3rd most yards last year in the league and a big reason why is they couldn’t get to the quarterback. McKinley is an ideal fit as an edge pass rusher in a 3-4. He’s an athletic, high-motor type player, and fills a big need for the Colts on defense.
    • Ravens - Corey Davis (WR)
    Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman aren’t the most intimidating wide receiver duo in the league. They may be fast, but they sure can’t run routes like Corey Davis can. Davis has great hands and feel for the game, and should quickly develop into Joe Flacco’s favourite target.
    • Redskins - Malik McDowell (DE/DT)
    Team ranked 28th in total defense last year, and needs major help anywhere on the front seven. McDowell has the size and ability to play multiple positions on the defensive line and be an effective rotation man. Scouts are questioning his motor but not his talent.
    • Titans - John Ross (WR)
    Tennessee has to come away with a top receiver in this year’s draft. They would probably prefer a bigger target like Williams or Davis, but Ross is a nice consolation prize. He’s the fastest man in the history of the combine, an instant playmaker on offense, and draws comparisons to Desean Jackson.
    • Bucs - Jabrill Peppers (LB/SS)
    Swiss Army knife Peppers can play a hybrid type role as linebacker and safety for the Bucs defense. Looking at the roster, the team is thin at both linebacker and safety depth, so Peppers will fill a need somewhere. You simply can’t dismiss his talent as a football player and freakish athleticism even though he doesn’t fit a clear position.
    • Broncos - Garrett Boles (OT)
    No secret how bad the Broncos offensive line is and the team did nothing in the offseason to fix it. I’d be shocked if the Broncos leave the first round without a top offensive linemen. Boles is an ideal fit for the Broncos zone blocking scheme and is the most athletic offensive linemen in the draft.
    • Lions - Haason Reddick (LB)
    Reddick had a very impressive combine: 4.5 speed, 37 vert, 24 bench at 240 lbs. The Lions are incredibly thin at linebacker and could really use the athletic skills of Reddick. He’s a bit of a project, but has the natural ability to be a good pro in the league.
    • Dolphins - Forrest Lamp (OG)
    Team needs more help on defense, but this is weak class for offensive linemen and finding an immediate starter like Lamp will be difficult later in the draft. Lamp is being compared to Zack Martin, so he might be worth the pick here.
    • Chiefs - Zach Cunningham (ILB) — Trade with Giants
    In this trade, the Chiefs package the 27th pick and a 3rd rounder to move up 4 spots. With 10 picks in this year’s draft, the Chiefs can spare a few picks to get the guy they want. Derrick Johnson is coming off a ruptured Achilles and isn’t getting any younger. Cunningham is a tackling machine but can also play coverage in the NFL.
    • Raiders - Adoree Jackson (CB)
    Sean Smith and David Amerson are both tall press cover corners. Jackson may be undersized and better fit to play the slot right away, but he is athletically gifted and can make a big impact in the return game for the Raiders.
    • Texans - Mitch Trubisky (QB)
    The plan to sign Romo didn’t work out for the Texans, and now the team is desperate for a QB. Trubisky reminds me of Jay Cutler, who is coincidentally still available on the free agent market. Hopefully for the Texans, Trubisky doesn’t come with the same bad attitude and poor decision making skills of Cutler.
    • Seahawks - Cam Robinson (OT)
    The team currently has undrafted George Fant playing left tackle for the upcoming season. There’s a reason why Russell Wilson didn’t have time to make throws and kept getting banged-up last season. With the signing of Eddie Lacy, I imagine the Seahawks will look to pound the run game, and Robinson is the best run blocking linemen in the draft.
    • Giants - David Njoku (TE) — Trade with Chiefs
    Team picks up an extra 3rd rounder with the trade down. They may have more pressing needs at defensive tackle or linebacker, but Njoku is rated as the 2nd best tight end in the draft. 6’4 with a 38 inch vertical, Njoku can be a very useful weapon and red zone target for Eli Manning.
    • Cowboys - Marlon Humphrey (CB)
    I’d bet the farm that the Cowboys spend this pick on defense. Cowboys are one of the worst teams against the pass and lost a bunch of their starters from the secondary in free agency. Humphrey is a big corner that can play zone coverage and tackle.
    • Green Bay - Christian McCaffrey (RB)
    Ideally the Packers could use a bigger, bruising type running back, but McCaffrey just looks like a future Packer to me. He’ll be used in all types of ways in Mike McCarthy’s dynamic spread offense and should get lots of open looks from Aaron Rodgers. This seems like a match made in Lambeau heaven.
    • Steelers - TJ Watt (OLB)
    James Harrison is 39 and the team needs to get more help in the pass rush. Watt is a real nice fit as an outside pass rusher in a 3-4 scheme. Blue collar type player for a blue collar type team, if he’s anything like his brother, this pick is an absolute steal.
    • Falcons - Budda Baker (FS)
    Team ranked 28th in pass defense last season and didn’t do a great job defending the pass in the 2nd half of the Super Bowl. The undersized Baker is super athletic and doesn’t shy away from tackling. He could be the Falcons version of Earl Thomas.
    • Saints - Tre’Davious White (CB)
    Rumour has the Saints trading this pick to New England for Malcolm Butler, but why not stay with the pick and select a talented cover man like White. Team is really thin at corner, and could probably use 2 or 3 corners in this draft.


    ROUND 2:
    • Browns - DeShone Kizer (QB)
    Here’s your new QB of the future Cleveland. Hope he sticks around.
    • 49ers - Alvin Kamara (RB)
    Kamara is an electric playmaker and can form a thunder and lightning duo with Carlos Hyde.
    • Jaguars - Dan Feeney (OG)
    Somebody has to block for Fournette.
    • Bears - Chidobe Awuzie (CB)
    Cornerback huge need, among every other position on the Bears.
    • Rams - Evan Engram (TE)
    New coach McVay likes his tight ends in the offense.
    • Chargers - Taco Charlton (DE)
    Team switching to a 4-3 this year and could use another end opposite of Joey Bosa
    • Jets - Obi Melifonwu (FS)
    Thought they would take a QB? I don’t think the team has written off Hackenberg. Melifonwu was a combine freak.
    • 49ers - Raekwon McMillan (LB) — trade with Panthers
    He can play strong side in the 4-3 or be Bowman’s eventual replacement at middle.
    • Bengals - Charles Harris (DE)
    Pass rushing defensive end. Team needs to find another rotation guy.
    • Saints - Gareon Conley (CB)
    Like I said, the Saints could use 2-3 corners in the draft. White and Conley are the future starters.
    • Eagles - Kevin King (CB)
    Tall corner who had a nice combine, ideal for zone coverage scheme.
    • Bills - Curtis Samuel (WR)
    Ultra-fast playmaker. Another weapon for the Bills offense.
    • Cardinals - Caleb Brantley (DE/DT)
    Big guy who can rotate in on the defensive line.
    • Colts - Jarrad Davis (ILB)
    Best player available. Davis can be the eventual captain of the defence one day.
    • Ravens - Ryan Anderson (OLB)
    Team is very thin at outside linebacker.
    • Vikings - JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR)
    Minnesota couldn’t move the ball at all last year. They need weapons badly on offence.
    • Redskins - Pat Mahomes (QB)
    This will be Kirk Cousins last year in Washington
    • Bucs - Joe Mixon (RB)
    Somebody will take a chance on him in the 2nd round
    • Denver - Chris Wormley (DE)
    Somebody will take a chance on him in the 2nd round
    • Jets - Tim Williams (OLB)
    Pass rushing specialist.
    • Lions - Justin Evans (SS)
    Hard hitting safety that Detroit needs
    • Dolphins - Tyus Bowser (LB)
    Had a good combine and can play LB or DE eventually
    • Giants - Montavious Adams
    Defensive line needs another big body.
    • Raiders - Kendall Beckwith (ILB)
    Good value pick. Beckwith could be the leader on defence in the future
    • Texans - Antonio Garcia (OT)
    Spot open on at RT.
    • Seattle - Teez Tabor (CB)
    Big corner will fit in nicely in the Seahawks secondary
    • Chiefs - D’Onta Foreman (RB)
    Team needs another back to replace Jamaal Charles
    • Cowboys - Jordan Willis (DE)
    Pass rush help much needed
    • Packers - Dorian Johnson (OG)
    Replacement for TJ Lang.
    • Steelers - Fabian Moreau (CB)
    Will be out 4-6 months with injury suffered at pro day, but was late 1st round talent.
    • Falcons - Dion Dawkins (OG)
    O-line was great last year, but Chester retired.
    • Carolina - Jeremy McNichols (RB)
    Jonathan Stewart is gone.
