Round 1

1. Browns: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M

Myles Garrett is to superior to the quarterback options available for the Browns to pass him up. Hue Jackson may struggle with this pick because Mitch Trubisky is similar to Andy Dalton, which fits his style. But, this is a similar situation when the Texans chose Clowney over Bortles. Though the Texans have yet to solve their QB situation, they apparently made the right choice. If I am the GM of this team, I'd rather sign a temporary solution in a Tyrod Taylor or Jay Cutler.

2. 49ers: Solomon Thomas, Defensive End, Stanford

I think Kyle Shanahan will prefer signing Jay Culter/Matt Schaub or trading for Jimmy Grappalo rather than reach for a quarterback at the 2nd pick. Thomas had been rising on draft boards and had landed in the top 5 in a few. Thomas over Jonathan Allen would have seemed unforeseeable just a month ago. But, the 49ers can add a local option in this Stanford prospect to give the franchise a figure for fans to watch while they rebuild. Additionally, he can play in whatever type of defense Shanahan moves forward with.

3. Bears: Jonathan Allen, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

While the Bears will move on from Jay Cutler, I don't believe they will be drafting a quarterback. It's likely that they either sign Tony Romo/Tyrod Taylor, or trade for Jimmy Grappalo. It would allow the Bears to add Jonathan Allen alongside Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman. If the Bears can just get a healthy linebacker corps, they will have one the best front seven in the league.

4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, Running Back, LSU

Both offensive and defense line primarily are the needs for the Jaguars. With Garrett, Allen, and Thomas off the board and no great offensive lineman worth taking here, the Jaguars can simply take the best player available. For Blake Bortles to even flirt with reaching his potential, he not only needs better protection, but the Jaguars have to run the ball better. T.J. Yeldon looks more like a complimentary back with Chris Ivory just representing depth. Fournette is an every down back that's had the fairest comparison to Adrian Peterson. He along with receivers Hurns/Robinson would give Bortles plenty of weapons.

5. Titans: Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Clemson

The Titans made enormous improvements this past season on both sides of the ball. Adding Marcus Mariota a consistent weapon other than Delanie Walker must be a priority for the team. Mike Williams is one of the most consistent receiving prospects and a reliable 3rd down threat (which the Titans apparently lack). Choosing one of the safety prospects available in Adams/Hooker would be great picks as well. But, adding Williams is critical to Mariota's development.

6. Jets: Marshon Lattimore, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Jets have been one of the toughest decisions for me. Kizer should certainly be evaluated here, but it looks like the organization wants to give Christian Hackenberg a chance. It's a risky move, but they may feel reaching for a quarterback here is just as risky. They also reportedly have the interest in Mike Glennon. They have plenty of other needs they can address with this selection as well. With or without Darrelle Revis, the Jets need another cornerback for Todd Bowels' system to work.

7. Chargers: Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU

Until the Chargers find a solution to protect Rivers better, their playoff hopes are doubtful. Which is sad considering Rivers' talent. Unfortunately, there just isn't one worth taking here. Trading back can be considered, but safety happens to be a need and the best prospect available happens to be one. The Chargers suffered losing safety Eric Weddle to free agency last offseason, and Adams fills the need. The offensive line will need addressed on day two or free agency.

8. Bills: Mitch Trubisky, Quarterback, North Carolina

TRADE 1: Panthers trade the 8th pick to Bills for the 10th pick and 3rd/5th round picks.

While reports are coming out of Buffalo that they may try and restructure Tyrod Taylor's contract, it still appears the organization wants to move on. It's unlikely the Bills can land free agent Tony Romo or swing a trade for divisional rival Patriots backup Jimmy Grappalo. Therefore, they'll have to address the quarterback position with this pick if one of the top two QB prospects (Kizer/Trubisky) are available. I think they'll prefer Trubisky. I have them trading up in case Cleveland or Arizona consider trading before them to select Trubisky.

9. Bengals: Reuben Foster, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

While Barnett will be tempting here, I think Foster ranks as the better prospect. While the Bengals have good depth at the linebacker position, they lack a true three-down inside linebacker. Foster is worthy of this pick and there will be plenty of pass rushers available in the following rounds.

10. Panthers: Cam Robinson, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

TRADE 1: Panthers trade the 8th pick to Bills for the 10th pick and 3rd/5th round picks.

How do you go from a 15-1 record and Super Bowl appearance to one of the bottom ten NFL teams? Inadequately protect your quarterback. I felt awful for Cam Newton this year. The Panthers will be tempted with some of the superior prospects here, but they just can't afford to ignore this need any longer for the safety of their quarterback. Cam Newton needs Cam Robinson. #CamNeedsCam

11. Saints: Derek Barnett, Defensive End, Tennessee

The Saints did not consistently pressure divisional quarterbacks Jameis Winston, Cam Newton, and Matt Ryan. If they want to return to prominence in Drew Brees final years, they have to improve on defense. Barnett had 23 sacks in this past two seasons at Tennessee. He fits nicely across from Cam Jordan. The Saints must also retain Nick Fairly.

12. Browns: Malik Hooker, Safety, Ohio State

While Kizer deserves to under consideration, I think it's more likely the Browns sign Tyrod Taylor. Safety happens to be a big need for the Browns. If Hooker happens to fall this far because of injury concerns or just pure luck, the Browns have to select on him. Landing Garret and Hooker in the first round will give the Browns defense a major upgrade.

13. Ravens: Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Florida State

TRADE 2: Cardinals trade the 13th pick to Ravens for the 16th pick & 3rd round pick.

I have the Ravens trading up for this selection because I believe the Colts and Eagles will be highly interested in taking Cook. They have never adequately replaced Ray Rice and haven't been an elite competitor in the AFC since. In rushing offense, they ranked 26th in 2015 and 28th in 2016. Dalvin Cook is similar to Rice regarding skill set.

14. Colts: Marlon Humphrey, Cornerback, Alabama

The Colts can take just about any prospect and be improved. Colts have needs across the roster, and it's a shame how poorly they've surrounded Andrew Luck. Defense needs an upgrade, and Humphrey happens to be the best prospect available. They need someone across from Vontae Davis.

15. Eagles: Quincy Wilson, Cornerback, Florida

With Dalvin Cook off the board, the Eagles need to address their secondary. Wilson can step in on day one and potentially be the best cornerback. Receiver Corey Davis can also be considered here, but the Eagles are really thin at cornerback. There will be additional RB prospects in the later rounds.

16. Cardinals: DeShone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame

TRADE 2: Cardinals trade the 13th pick to Ravens for the 16th pick & 3rd round pick.

Carson Palmer's window is quickly closing. The Cardinals may have other needs, but selecting Kizer with the 13th pick is fair. Some scouts have even compared Kizer to Palmer. This would allow Kizer to have a season or two under Palmer in addition to Bruce Arians coaching. I have the Cardinals trading back because they can afford to move back a few selection and still land Kizer.
