The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017 TGT NFL Mock Draft 1.0

2017 TGT NFL Mock Draft 1.0

NFL Mock Draft!
Publish Date: 01/20/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

So you say the 2016 NFL season isn’t quite over yet? No worries – – Here at the Grueling Truth, we’ve got one on the short -term future of the NFL already. Here’s our 2017 NFL mock draft 1.0…

1) Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M – The Browns need a quarterback, but I don’t think there is a QB in this draft that is not a reach at number one. All indications are that the Browns love Garrett.

2) San Francisco 49ers: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson – This is a massive reach in some people’s estimation, not mine. The other question is who will the head coach be, which could affect this pick also.

3) Chicago Bears: Jonathan Allen, DE/DT, Alabama – The Bears need a QB, but they would be hard pressed to pass on Allen. Allen was, to say the least, dominant in college, and he will be in the NFL also.

4) Jacksonville Jaguars: Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee – The Jaguars have enough defensive backs, so this is a chance to strengthen the defensive line.

5) Tennessee Titans: Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State – The Titans winning one of the most lopsided trades in history will help to make them a Super Bowl contender for years to come. I think Hooker is the best safety in the draft and would be a great addition to an improving Titans defense.

6) New York Jets: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina – I think this pick would be a mistake, but remember weโ€™re talking about the Jetsโ€™ front office. Trubisky has some flaws that I think should make him somewhere between late first and late second, but the Jets will overreach.

7) San Diego Chargers: Jamal Adams, S, LSU – I think the Chargers can go may directions on this pick, but they need safety help badly, and Adams can help right away.

8) Carolina Panthers: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU – This pick will either be a huge bust or a great pick: There will be no in between. Injury problems have to be a concern, but when healthy Fournette is as good as you will ever see.

9) Cincinnati Bengals: Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama – This pick could depend on what goes on in free agency with Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler. There are some off -field concerns with Robinson, yet we know stuff like that does not faze Marvin Lewis or Mike Brown. I would not be surprised if the Bengals shock some people and go with Western Michigan wide receiver Cory Davis, but for now, I am going with Robinson.

10) Buffalo Bills: Deshon Kizer, QB, Notre Dame – A lot of people have Kizer graded even higher than this. In my opinion, Kizer is a huge reach here, but the Bills may be desperate enough to pull the trigger.

11) New Orleans Saints: Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama – This would be a great pick for the Saints. Foster is the best inside linebacker prospect in this draft.

12) Cleveland Browns: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama – The Browns secondary is terrible, this pick would make them better.

13) Arizona Cardinals: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson – Larry Fitzgerald is getting older and would make a great tutor for Williams, who is a beast.

14) Indianapolis Colts: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State – The Colts need to address the defense, but they cannot afford to pass on Cook. He would be a perfect replacement for 34-year-old Frank Gore.

15). Philadelphia Eagles: Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida – I would not be surprised if the Eagles trade up to try to get an explosive playmaker like a Dalvin Cook or a Mike Williams. If they can’t Wilson would be a solid pick to shore up the back end of their defense.

16) Baltimore Ravens: Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford – The Ravens have more pressing needs than defensive end, but Thomas would be a steal right here.

17) Washington Redskins: Chris Wormley, DE/DT, Michigan – Wormley would be a perfect fit for the Redskins: He has the size, strength and speed the Skins need on their defensive line.

18) Tennessee Titans: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State – The Titansโ€™ secondary is the team’s biggest weakness and this would be great value here.

19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan – This would be an outstanding pick for any team. For the Bucs, it gives them another weapon for Jameis Winston to throw to. It also helps to replace an aging Vincent Jackson.

20) Denver Broncos: Garrett Bolles, OT, Utah – Bolles fills a huge need that the Broncos have on the offensive line.

21) Detroit Lions: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan – I think the Lions need a lot of help on the defensive side of the ball. I believe the need on the DL is bigger, but Peppers will be hard for the Lions to pass on.

22) Miami Dolphins: Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt – To say the Dolphins have a weakness at linebacker would be a huge understatementโ€ฆ

23) New York Giants: Ryan Ramcyzk, OT, Wisconsin – The Giants need help right now on the offensive line. I feel this would be a great value pick, and Ramcyzk is a player that could start right away. Ramcyk will have surgery soon, and that will scare some teams away and move him from a 15-20 pick to a guy that could drop right into the Giantsโ€™ lap.

24) Oakland Raiders: Malik McDowell, DT/DE, Michigan State – McDowell gives the Raiders a player that can play almost anywhere on the defensive interior line.

25) Houston Texans: Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky – Lamp will be a great pick for whoever gets him. I have him graded as the best guard in this draft and he will have a long NFL career.

26) Seattle Seahawks: Desmond King, CB, Iowa – King is as good as any corner in this draft; heโ€™s great at understanding route concepts and is capable of playing very well as a rookie.

27) Kansas City Chiefs: Tim Williams, DE, Alabama – Williams is way too good to pass on here.

28) Dallas Cowboys: Taco Charlton, CB, Michigan – Charlton should give the Cowboys the pass rusher theyโ€™re missing.

29) Pittsburgh Steelers: John Ross, WR, Washington – Another weapon for an already scary offense.

30) Green Bay Packers: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson – This would be a great pick for the Packers if Tankersley falls this far.

31) Atlanta Falcons: Charles Harris, Edge, Missouri – The Falcons need to upgrade their pass rush. This pick would go a long way to getting the defense where it needs to be.

32) New England Patriots: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama – With Gronk always hurt, Howard may be a great insurance plan. Plus, heโ€™s a great blocking tight end that could surprise and go higher than this.
