Don’t like your teams pick? Comment Below
1. Oakland Raiders (Onebar) – Leonard Williams DT/DE, USC
While quarterback is absolutely an option, the idea of pairing the dominate Williams with Khalil Mack could be overly tempting. Oakland needs a lot of pieces to compete but continuing to build on the defense would be a step in the right direction.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars (Lupagus) – Randy Gregory DE, Nebraska
The Jags need to upgrade their offensive line but as of right now no tackle deserves to be taken this high. So they upgrade another need area at defensive end, with this pass rushing Cornhusker who has elite pass rushing potential.
3. Tampa Bay Bucs (Lomas) – Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon
Mariota is almost destined for the third place in this draft. Jacksonville and Oakland don’t need QBs and Tampa Bay and Tennessee are both teams that have a need at the position unless Mettenberger steps up. Mariota, V-Jax, Mike Evans, and ASJ may end up being a very interesting combo this time next year.
4. Tennessee Titans (Onebar) – Shane Ray LB, Missouri
Ray has been the big riser this year and has been almost unstoppable. His speed and athleticism would be welcomed with open arms on a Titan defense that needs a playmaker.
5. New York Jets (Lupagus) – Jameis Winston QB. Florida St.
Jameis Winston and New York could be a poisonous match but he Jets have to take the chance. There will likely be a new coaching staff in New York next season and they’ll want to be able to pick their QB. Winston does have some issues, but he’s a gamer with a big frame and rocket arm.
6. Washington Redskins (Lomas) – Hau’oli Kikaha DE/OLB, Washington
I am much higher on Kikaha so he will be around my top-10 all year. Injuries have been what hurt his stock most, but he has a sack in 18 of his last 19 games, and is leading the nation in sacks right now. He is quick and has a great motor, some coach will fall in love with his production and talent.
7. New York Giants (Onebar) – Andrus Peat OT, Stanford
Peat is winning me over as the top offensive tackle in the class. Has a huge frame and excels at both run and pass blocking. The Stanford product would be an instant upgrade and help get Eli’s numbers and the Giants offense back where it should be.
8. Carolina Panthers (Lupagus) – La’El Collins OT, LSU
The Panthers have to get a left tackle here or they will end up with no QB as Cam will end up on permanent I.R. if he continues to take a beating week in and week out. With Ogbuehi struggling and Scherff a possible move to guard, Collins becomes the safest pick and can help restore a Panthers line to glory.
9. Chicago Bears (Lomas) – Vic Beasley DE/OLB, Clemson
The Bears really have no defense at this point, and DE may be the strongest point on their roster. However, they really need someone who can get to the QB so that they can disrupt the offense’s rhythm and Beasley is the best man available for that job.
10. New Orleans Saints (Onebar) – Dante Fowler LB, Florida
The Saints defense is brutal, look for them to go D early and often. Fowler can play all over the field but would most likely find his home on the Saints defense as a pass rushing OLB. Has great speed,size, and ability to get in the backfield. Would be a great start to improving a below average defense.
11. Minnesota Vikings (Lupagus) – Landon Collins S, Alabama
The Vikings need help on their offensive line. So they would have to think long and hard about taking Scherff or Ogbuehi here, but Mike Zimmer is a defensive minded coach and adding a playmaking safety like Landon Collins next to Harrison Smith would do wonders for this defense.
12. Houston Texans (Lomas) – Bryce Petty QB, Baylor
The Texans have to have a quarterback in this draft and with the top two off the board, they can’t to see what scraps are left in the second round.
13. St. Louis Rams (Onebar) – Amari Cooper WR, Alabama
Instead of reaching for a quarterback at 13, the Rams play it safe and get the best pass catcher in the draft. Adding him to the mix of Quick & Austin should help get that offense off the ground. Quarterback will be a high priority in the next few rounds.
14. Miami Dolphins (Lupagus) – Devin Funchess WR/TE, Michigan
The Dolphins offense has come a long way this season but Ryan Tannehill could use a more dynamic tight end. Funchess is a candidate to convert to tight end in the NFL and would become fast friends with Tannehill as a seam stretching, mismatch causing nightmare for defenses.
15. Cleveland Browns (from Buffalo) (Lomas) – Kevin White QB, WVU
Cleveland needs another receiver in this offense, and White may be the closest thing to Tampa Bay Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans in this draft.
16. Cleveland Browns (Onebar) – Brandon Scherff OT, Iowa
Cleveland could use an upgrade at right tackle and Scherff would be a gift at 16. Pairing him up with Thomas could pave the way for Johnny Football to take off in Cleveland. Thomas isn’t a spring chicken anymore and the big man from Iowa could be his replacement down the road.
