Recommended Posts

1.Titans-Laremy Tunsil OT Ole Miss

The Titans gave up the most sack in the NFL and need to keep their investment protected. Tunsil pairs with Lewan to surround Mariota with two good bookends


2. Browns-Jared Goff QB CAL

The Browns are searching for a franchise QB again after the failed Manziel experiment. Goff fits well with new head coach Hue Jackson

3.ChargersJalen Ramsey DB FSU

The Chargers need help in the secondary and will be losing the oft injured Weddle at FS. Ramsey can step in an play at multiple positions

4.Cowboys-Carson Wentz QB NDSU

Not the biggest need, but they have the luxury here of finding Romo’s eventually replacement. The Cowboys coaches will get to know Wentz well during Senior Bowl week and I think become infatuated with him

5. Jaguars-Joey Bosa DE Ohio St

Best player available and fits a need for the Jags. Bosa will pair with the returning Dante Fowler Jr to give Gus Bradley a great set of DE’s

6. Ravens-Laquon Treadwell WR Ole Miss

Flacco lacked weapons once Steve Smith went down with injury. They drafted Perriman last year who will return and Smith has staved off retirement for a year and Aiken played well in spots, but Treadwell is too hard to pass on here

7. 49ers-Ronnie Stanley OT Notre Dame

With the retirement of Anthony Davis last offseason it opened a hole at RT for the 49ers. Stanley can play RT until he’s ready to take over for Joe Staley

8. Dolphins-Mackensie Alexander CB Clemson

Alexander has tremendous shut down corner skills that are needed in Miami

9. Bucs-Vernon Hargreaves III CB Florida

Hargreaves makes up for size with good ball skills and speed. He provides much depth at corner for the Bucs

10.Giants-Reggie Ragland ILB Alabama

The Giants need a tone setter defensively and Ragland really fits that role. The Giants have been against drafting LB’s early, but can’t pass on the talented Ragland

11. Bears-DeForest Buckner DT Oregon

Buckner is diverse schematically. The Bears need help on all levels of the defense and start with Buckner on the line

12. Saints-Andrew Billings DT Baylor

The Saints finished last in rushing defensively. They need a big run stuffer in the middle. Billings is a stout run defender, who also brings an ability to rush the passer

13. Eagles-Paxton Lynch QB Memphis

Doug Pederson needs to find the franchise QB. Lynch has good mobility and decent accuracy for Pederson’s scheme

14. Raiders-Myles Jack OLB UCLA

An off the ball “space” LB that can play inside or out. Jack pairing with Mack is a dangerous combo

15. Rams-Shaq Lawson DE Clemson

Chris Long is heading into a contract year and may be a cap casuality. Lawson can step right in at the SDE spot

16. Lions-Kenny Clark DT UCLA

Clark played multiple positions across the UCLA Dline. He has traits that would appeal to defensive coordinator Teryl Austin

17. Falcons-Darron Lee LB Ohio St

Lee had a great bowl game against Notre Dame with 7 tackles and two sacks. He can blitz off the edge and is also good in coverage.

18. Colts-Ezekiel Elliott RB Ohio St

The Colts have a need at RB that has never been properly addressed. They need to take some pressure off Andrew Luck, Elliott is adapt at picking up blitzes

19. Bills-Noah Spence EDGE WKU

I think Rex Ryan needs a true edge rusher for his system and Spence fits. He can play with his hand in the dirt and stand up as a OLB.

20. Jets-Jason Spriggs OT Indiana

Spriggs is very raw coming from the Hoosiers spread offense. He can play RT to start which is a big need for the Jets

21. Redskins-Justin Simmons SS BC

The Redskins were so lacking in depth at SS that DeAngelo Hall played snaps there. Simmons is quick riser. He’s a thumper with good coverage skills

22. Texans-Christian Hackenberg QB Penn St

I don’t want to do this, but the Texans can’t wait another round to draft their QB. Bill O’ Brien knows Hackenberg very well and can possibly bring out the talent Hackenberg flashed his freshman year

23. Vikings-Corey Coleman WR Baylor

The Vikings need a game changer for Teddy Bridgewater. Coleman is great after the catch and can get vertical.

24. Bengals-Michael Thomas WR Ohio St

The Bengals are set to lose two free agent WR’s to free agency and need someone to pair with A.J Green

25. Steelers-Eli Apple CB Ohio St

The Steelers lack corners. Apple is only 20 years old with good ball skills and desired length

26. Seahawks-Taylor Decker OT Ohio St

The Seahawks offensive line was destroyed by Carolina in the 1st half of the divisional playoff game. Wilson was able to improvise in the second half to lower the sack numbers, but he was still feeling immense pressure. They need protecting on the right side

27. Packers-Leonard Floyd EDGE UGA

The Packers finished top ten in the NFL in sacks, but need younger edge rushers

28. Chiefs-Josh Doctson WR TCU

Doctson has length and nice deep speed. He is great in the red zone with his leaping ability at the highest catch point

29. Cardinals-Kamalei Correa EDGE Boise St

Correa is a rising prospect and though undersized uses his hands well to shed blocks. A great fit in Arizona

30. Broncos-Hunter Henry TE Arkansas

Broncos have to get younger at the TE position. Henry will make a great Y TE in Kubiak’s offense

31. Panthers-Shon Coleman OT Auburn

The Panthers Oline played better than expected, but Michael Oher was just a stop gap at LT. Coleman can step in at either RT or LT

I would not doubt that if Henry is there that Reese take him. Not that that's the right move. but you know how JR is with is BPA approach. That said will he actually make an attempt to draft to our needs, as to just picking the whom ever catches his eye in the underwear Olympics?

MacAttack will value the TE more. I wonder how much input he'll actually have in the draft. Surprised O.J Howard went back to school after that NC game
