FIRST ROUND MOCK DRAFT
1 Arizona QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma
2 Oakland DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State
Raiders get their fans back with an impact sexy pick-up.
3 NY Jets DT Ed Oliver, Houston
If the Jets fail to trade down in the first, look for them to add more picks later by trading down in the middle rounds.
4 San Francisco DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama
With only six picks going in, the 49ers trade down two spots to add a premium pick to their arsenal and still get a quality talent they could have chosen at two.
5 Washington QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
The Bucs need more picks and the Redskins are the perfect trade partner with their desire to steal Haskins from New York.
6 NY Giants OLB Josh Allen, Kentucky
7 Jacksonville TE TJ Hockenson, Iowa
8 Detroit ILB Devin White, LSU
9 Buffalo DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State
Keep in mind that Clelin Ferrell could be chosen over Sweat if Sweat’s recent health concerns have him free-fall down the board.
10 Denver OL Jonah Williams, Alabama
11 Cincinnati QB Drew Lock, Missouri
New young offensive-minded head coach = new QB.
The Bengals can also save 40 million by cutting Andy Dalton.
12 Green Bay ILB Devin Bush, Michigan
13 Miami RT Andre Dillard, Washington State
14 Atlanta DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson
15 Tampa Bay RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama
16 Carolina DE Rashan Gary, Michigan
17 NY Giants QB Daniel Jones, Duke
18 Minnesota DL Christian Wilkins, Clemson
19 Tennessee OLB Brian Burns, Florida State
20 Pittsburgh WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma
Lots of options here with Brown getting the nod thanks to his elite speed that will help spread the entire field. Last year’s second-round pick James Washington is no sure thing after a disappointing rookie season, so Brown will also provide insurance.
21 Seattle CB Greedy Williams, LSU
If Williams is gone by 21, I can see the Seahawks going with a receiver (N’Keal Harry), an offensive lineman (Kaleb McGary) or an edge-rusher (Jaylon Ferguson).
If the Seahawks go in another direction with their first pick, keep an eye on CB Joejuan Williams from Vanderbilt as a potential second or third-round selection.
22 Baltimore C Garrett Bradbury, NC State
23 Houston OT Kaleb McGary, Washington
24 San Francisco WR D.K. Metcalf, Ole Miss
25 Philadelphia DE Jaylon Ferguson, Louisiana Tech
26 Indianapolis DL Jeffery Simmons, Mississippi St.
G.M. Chris Ballard is clearly the most underrated football executive in the NFL and his master plan of building from within is about to pay huge dividends. Not only do the Colts have the most salary cap space in the league, but they quite possibly have the least amount of issues. That’s why I’m going with Simmons here. Ballard and the Colts are building towards a long-term goal, which is why they can afford to be more patient with Simmons - who tore his ACL in February - than most other G.M.’s.
27 Oakland CB Byron Murphy, Washington
28 Los Angeles OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida
As good as the Chargers were last season, they still have several key holes to fill at right tackle, defensive line and safety.
Besides Taylor at this spot, keep an eye on DTs Dexter Lawrence & Jerry Tillery as well as DBs Johnathan Abram & Juan Thornhill.
QB Daniel Jones could also be an option here as a developmental future starter or they could trade for Josh Rosen.
29 Seattle WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State
30 Green Bay WR Deebo Samuel, South Carolina
31 Los Angeles DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson
The decision to go with Lawrence appears to be an easy one. If they pass on Lawrence or if he’s unavailable, I would look for an edge-rusher, some offensive line depth or a defensive back.
The Rams will probably add some running back depth on the second or third day.
32 New England TE Noah Fant, Iowa
The defending champs own a league-high 12 draft picks and I suspect they’ll spend several of them on much needed receiving depth. They also need to add some pass rushers, find safety depth and look for Tom Brady’s eventual successor and Josh Rosen could very well be that guy.
