Round 1

Picks 17-32
17. Chargers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

I had the bolts for the better part of last year taking Malik hooker. While tre Boston was better than anticipated he is no Eric Weddle and James would be a huge upgrade. James has too 10 potential and has been compared the Sean Taylor. Edmunds is an option here and would also be an excellent value pick for the bolts.

18. Seahawks: Isaiah Wynn, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

Defense easily could be an option here especially with the dismantlement of the legion of boom. However Seattle’s number one priority should be protecting Russell Wilson. Wynn played tackle at Georgia however due to his size he is projected to be a very talented guard. This pick will hopefully also create more holes for the Seattle rushing attack. Something that struggled greatly last year.

19. Cowboys: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

I really want to give the cowboys a WR here but it’s more of a luxury pick here especially since Dez is still on the roster. The Defense is a much more serious matter. Edmunds is only 19 extremely versatile and has a ton of potential. Their defense falls apart whenever Sean Lee gets hurt, so having a LB on the roster would provide some sort of insurance. Pass rush is also an option I just feel LB is the better option here.

20. Lions: Dorance Armstrong Jr., Defensive End, Kansas

The lions have very few pass rushers who can really impact a game. Armstrong is raw but after a solid senior bowl and great combine showing he is undoubtedly worth a first round pick. Ansah and Armstrong would provide a nice one two punch for years to come.

RB is an obvious need but there is tons of depth in the later rounds including Guice and Ronald Jones.

21. Bengals: Will Hernandez, Offensive Guard, UTEP

Continue building the offensive line you already got Cordy Glenn which bolsters the left side. Hernendez is a monster he’s also a plug and play starter. Improving the line will help the rushing attack and help the bengals offense be less one dimensional.

22. Giants: Rashaan Evans, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

Alex ogletree may be a nice expensive new addition but the giants d still has holes everywhere. I like Sam Hubbard here however Vernon and JPP are still a dynamic duo of the edge. Evans will help stop the run and provide depth at LB. He also has range and can go sideline to sideline.

23. Rams: Harold Landry, Defensive End, Boston College

The rams need to add new life at pass rusher. Robert Quinn is gone and barwin has grossly underachied. Landry may be a bit undersized but if developed right and put in the right situation has amazing upside. He reminds me of Vic Beasley.

24. Panthers: Jaire Alexander, Cornerback, Louisville

I had Christian Kirk going here for the longest time. The panthers are lacking a true deep threat that helped lead them to a super bowl apperence in 2015. However after the extremely questionable trade for Torrey Smith, Carolina no longer needs that threat and lost a CB. Enter Jaire Alexander. Alexander was one of the best cornerbacks at the combine, and it doesn't seem like teams are too concerned about his injury issues. Alexander also has the potential to be a true number 1 something the teams lacked since Josh Norman.

25. Titans: James Daniels, Center, Iowa

Continue building the offensive line. Daniels can play guard or center and is a plug and play starter. Improving the line will help the smash mouth running attack and help Marcus Mariota.

26. Falcons: Taven Bryan, Defensive Tackle, Florida

With the departure of dontari Poe, the falcons have a whole in the middle of their defensive line. Bryan was a force at Florida and can help a Atlanta D that under achieved in 2017. Rumors are that the falcons like the DT in this class and Bryan was listed amongst them.

27. Saints: Sam Hubbard, Defensive End, Ohio State

You can never have too many pass rushers and Hubbard would join a rotation that was already very successful at sacking the QB.

28. Steelers: Leighton Vander Esch, Inside Linebacker, Boise State

We all saw what happened when Ryan shazier went down and who knows if he’ll ever play again. Vander Esch is a very dynamic LB and can do it all. He is a 3 down player and would also add some youth to an aging defense.

29. Jaguars: Dallas Goedert, Tight End, South Dakota State

Blake Bortles is the WB for the next 3 years continue to build around him and get him weapons. Marcadies Lewis is 900 years old and a deep threat like goedert would provide match up nightmares for opposing defenses. He could very well have Evan Engram type production.

30. Vikings: Kolton Miller, Offensive Tackle, UCLA

There isn’t many holes in Minnesota. Upgrading at tackle is always a safe move. Plus you need to protect the 84 million dollar man Kirk Cousins.

31. Patriots: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

With Nate Solder likely gone in free agency tackle becomes a huge need. Miller would be the ideal selection if available however he just went. Next player available is Arden Key who has some question marks including an injury history. The patriots need help at pass rush and key has the potential to be a double digit sack guy.

32. Eagles: Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU

What a pick here for the eagles. The roster has very few needs and with only 2 real WR on the roster Sutton would be incredible value here. Sutton is my favorite WR in the draft and him and Jeffery on the outside would be a heck of a duo. Just another weapon for Carson Wentz.
