The Browns signed Collins to an extension but that won't stop them from drafting a player of Garrett's caliber. A pass rushing OLB isn't the Brown's biggest need, but Garrett is by far the best player available (BPA) in this draft class.
I last had J. Allen going here but I was assuming the 49ers would sign a good veteran QB and Hoyer and Barkley are not that. Trubisky only got a year of starting experience but he has the best balance of accuracy, mobility and potential of all the available QB's.
By paying M. Glennon $15 million/year I don't think the Bears will take a QB in the 1st round. Allen can do it all as he played inside and outside for Alabama. He can stop the run and rush the passer and Fox loves being strong in the trenches.
I really don't have a good feel yet for what the Jaguars will do with this pick. I don't even know who I think is the 4th best player in this draft class. After the combine I don't think Fournette or Adams are worth taking at this spot, but the Jaguars didn't do anything in FA to address the RB position and consensus is that Fournette is the best RB in this class. Personally I think it's Cook, but I've been bitten too much in the past making mock drafts to put the player I would draft. In short, I hope more info comes out between now and the draft so I'll feel more confident in this pick.
***THIS PICK WILL BE TRADED TO THE CHARGERS WITH THE TITANS GETTING THE CHARGERS 2017 2ND ROUND PICK*** The Chargers really need a downfield threat for their offense and Ross running the fastest official time in Combine history is a match made in heaven for the Chargers. Ross has great hands as well and runs crisp routes.
Now that the Jets have taken a look at Cook I am back to believing they will draft him at this spot. Whoever they line up under center would be greatly helped by a balanced running attack. Cook is the best bonafide three down RB in this draft class.***Howard is fast, smart, agile and a great blocker. He has proven worthy of a top 10 selection.
*** THIS PICK WILL BE TRADED TO THE TITANS WITH THE TITANS GETTING THE CHARGERS 2017 2ND ROUND PICK*** The Titans need secondary and WR help and Hooker represents the best value of all the available options. Hooker is the best ball hawk in this year's class. I'm assuming Hooker will make a full recovery from surgery this offseason.
With Ealy being traded to New England and Peppers being over the hill the Panthers could use a DE. Thomas is an athletic, productive defensive lineman who really stepped it up a level last season and particularly in his final bowl game. He has the ability to play outside or inside on the D-line and he had great combine so he has been steadily moving up draft boards.
I'm not sure M. Williams is worth taking this high but the Bengals have shown interest in him and WR's in general this offseason. They certainly need to reload at the position after the last two offseasons. The ability of Williams to win 50-50 balls down the field will allow Dalton to stay productive for years to come.
This is another case of BPA more than anything, but the Bills also need to fortify the back end of their secondary. Adams is well rounded safety who can line up anywhere on the field and be productive.
Whether this ends up being the Patriots or Saints pick I think either of them could use Lattimore. The Saints would do just as well with either a pass rushing OLB or CB and Lattimore was very productive in college as a playmaker and performed very well at the Combine.
This seems like a good spot for Watson from a value standpoint and obviously fits a position of need for the Browns. Watson has now outperformed Kizer on the field in college and at the Combine.
With the unfortunate injury to CB S. Jones during Washington's Pro Day the Cardinals will have to look elsewhere for help. I don't think any of the other CB's are worth taking at this spot so they move on to their next position of need: QB. Kizer hasn't wowed from a production standpoint and wasn't that accurate at the combine (or in college for that matter) but he has the best size, arm strength and pro training of all of the QB's in this draft class. He is athletic, but he is the type of pocket passer Arians covets.
The Eagles still need help at the skill positions on offense and they could go RB or WR but RB is probably the bigger need. McCaffrey is a perfect fit for the Eagles offense with his receiving ability.
The Colts desperately need a front seven guy for their defense in the 1st round. Reddick has had the attention of scouts for some time, but really came to my attention at the Combine. I think he can be the pass rusher the Colts have needed since father time finally caught up with R. Mathis.
The Ravens have to get younger at the pass rushing position and McKinley is the best pass rushing OLB available. McKinley really stepped his game up in this past season and learned to play the run as well as improving as a pass rusher.
