Fact checked by: Simon Briffa
1) Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M. Defensive Coordinator, Gregg Williams’s arrival in Cleveland, will mean a shift to a 4-3 defense for the Browns, and Garrett is the best defensive end in this draft.
2). San Francisco 49ers: Solomon Thomas. DE, OLB, Stanford. Thomas has quickly climbed almost everyone’s draft board.
3). Chicago Bears: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State. The Bears fixed one side in free agency they fix the other side here.
4). Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonathon Allen, DT/DE, Alabama. You win games up front and adding Allen to a defensive line that includes Calais Campbell, Malik Jackson and Dante Fowler Jr., gives the Jags the makings of a big-time defense.
5). Tennessee Titans: Jamal Adams, S, LSU. Adams will be a special player in the NFL.
6). New York Jets: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU. They have a need for explosive players on offense.
7). Los Angeles Chargers: Malik Hooker, CB, Ohio State. Fills a big need.
8). Carolina Panthers: Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee. Panthers need a pass rusher.
9). Cincinnati Bengals: Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama. The Bengals would all the sudden with this pick combined with the Minter signing be strong at linebacker.
10). Buffalo Bills: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson. Best WR in this draft?
11) New Orleans Saints: Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan. The Saints need an edge rusher.
12). Cleveland Browns: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina. Browns get their franchise QB here.
13) Arizona Cardinals: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama. Cards need corner help.
14). Philadelphia Eagles: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State. The Eagles need a Running back and Cook is a special one.
15). Indianapolis Colts: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama. Andrew Luck will love this pick!
16). Baltimore Ravens: Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama. The Ravens badly need offensive line help.
17). Washington Redskins: Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt. The Redskins need to address the front seven, and they do so with this pick.
18). Tennessee Titans: John Ross, WR, Washington. Most explosive player in this draft.
19). Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford. McCaffrey is a versatile big time athlete.
20). Denver Broncos: Hassan Reddick, LB, Temple. A little young blood on the offensive line.
21). Detroit Lions: Adoree Jackson, CB/KR, USC. Added depth at DB for the Lions and an explosive special teams player.
22). Miami Dolphins: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan. Not the LB the Dolphins need, but maybe the best overall athlete left in the draft here.
23). New York Giants: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson. Manning’s replacement in a couple of years?
24). Oakland Raiders: Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida. Would improve the Raiders defensive line immediately.
25). Houston Texans: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech. Texans will take a shot here at finding a possible starting QB.
26). Seattle Seahawks: Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky. Lamp would fill a big need for the Packers.
27). Kansas City Chiefs: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan. Injury concerns cause him to drop here.
28). Dallas Cowboys: T.J. Watt, OLB, Wisconsin. Tested out big time at the combine.
29). Green Bay Packers: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State. The Packers have to address the CB position,
30). Pittsburgh Steelers: Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut. The Steelers secondary needs help.
31). Atlanta Falcons: Garrett Bolles, G/T, Utah. Would fill the one hole the Falcons had on their line last year.
32). New Orleans Saints: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA. Moreau can be a star.
