2017 NFL DRAFT: MY FINAL MOCK DRAFT

First Round

1. CLEVELAND BROWNS (1-15)

MITCHELL TRUBISKY-QB-UNC
6-2/222
MENTOR HIGH SCHOOL  
MENTOR, OH 
NFL Comparison: Andy Dalton/Ryan Tannehill

The Browns take the local hero that won Mr. Football in Ohio. He is a die hard Browns fan and would love to help turn around a dreadful franchise in Cleveland. Doesn't that sound familiar? It will be nearly impossible for Trubisky to have a LeBron James like impact on the city, however Browns fans will be happy if he helps make them competitive. After all they haven't had a franchise QB since Bernie Kosar who started in Cleveland before Trubisky was born.

This move will be heavily criticized. However, the fact is the Browns NEED a franchise QB and if they feel Trubisky is the guy, then they should take him. At #12 they will then be in an ideal position to take a pass rusher like Derek Barnett or Charles Harris. They could also get a premier pass catcher like OJ Howard or Mike Williams as well. 



2. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
MYLES GARRETT-EDGE/DE/OLB-TEXAS A&M
6-5/270/35.25 arm length
MARTIN HIGH SCHOOL 
ARLINGTON, TX  
NFL Comparison: Jason Pierre-Paul/Aldon Smith 



The Browns NEED a QB, but with two 1st round picks and not much separating the three top signal callers the Browns can afford to take a QB with their second 1st round pick or trade back up to get one of the top signal callers.

Garrett is the clear cut best true outside pass rusher in this years class. His combine numbers were out of this world for an athlete with his mass. The Browns need an impact guy on the defensive line. He has the chance to change an entire defense with his special skill set.





Adams has all the intangibles to help lead the defense for a decade. He has to size and athletic ability to play both safety spots and play in the slot. Adams is a premier hitter that loves to play physical football. He is an absolute heat seeking missile and game changer than can make a defense elite.


3. CHICAGO BEARS 
SOLOMON THOMAS-DE/5T/3T/EDGE-STANFORD
6-3/273/33.0
COPPELL HIGH SCHOOL 
COPPELL, TX
NFL Comparison: Justin Smith/Everson Griffen
Thomas was born in Chicago, raised in Australia and went to high school in Texas. There is a good chance he could end up back at his birthplace with the Bears. 

Thomas can rush the passer from the inside and outside and would fit well in Vic Fangio's 3-4 defense. The Bears were 27th against the run last year so they need to add some toughness up front. The bigger need for Chicago is at defensive back, however according to Walter Football's Prospect Visits they have met with or worked out many good safeties that will be available in round two including Obi Melifonwu, Josh Jones and Desmond King. This is also a deep draft at corner. My guess is they go best player available at #3 and go defensive back in rounds two and three. 




4. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (3-13)
LEONARD FOURNETTE-RB-LSU



6-0/240
ST. AUGUSTINE HIGH SCHOOL
NEW ORLEANS  
NFL Comparison: Le'Veon Bell/Steven Jackson
Head Coach Doug Marrone and OC Nathaniel Hackett want to run the ball more to take the pressure off of Blake Bortles. Fournette is a three down power back that can take Jacksonville's offense to another level. 

There have been rumors linking DeShaun Watson here. However, I think they give Bortles one more year and if he is unable to take the next step, they look for a QB in next year's draft. 




5. TENNESSEE TITANS 

VIA PRE DRAFT TRADE WITH THE LOS ANGELES RAMS (4-12)
JONATHAN ALLEN-DE/5T/DT/EDGE-BAMA
6-3/286/33.6
STONEBRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL 
ASHBURN, VA
NFL Comparison: Michael Bennett/Fletcher Cox
The NFL now values guys that can rush the passer from the inside as much as edge rushers. Guys like JJ Watt, Aaron Donald, Fletcher Cox and 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year Joey Bosa have paved the way for interior pass rushers.


Allen can rush the passer from the inside and outside and would fit well in the Titans 3-4 defense. Allen is so valuable because you can literally line him up anywhere on the defensive line and he will have an impact. 

The Titans also have a major need at CB and so Marshon Lattimore could be an option here. However, the Titans have recently worked out many good defensive backs that could be available at #18 including: Chidobe AwuzieObi Melifonwu and Marlon Humphrey. 


6. NEW YORK JETS (5-11)
MALIK HOOKER-FS/DB-OHIO ST.


6-1/206/33.25
NEW CASTLE HIGH SCHOOL 
NEW CASTLE, PA
NFL Comparison: Malcolm Jenkins/Harrison Smith
NFL Nation Jets writer Rich Cimini is as plugged in as any beat writer in the country. He think's there's a good chance the Jets take Hooker here if they are unable to trade down. It makes a lot of sense to me as the Jets need a ball hawking free safety to help their below average secondary. Plus both of their current starters at safety (Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor) are better as playing in the box. 






7. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (5-11)

JAMAL ADAMS-S/DB-LSU
6-0/214/33.4
HEBRON HIGH SCHOOL 
CARROLTON, TX
NFL Comparison: Eric Berry/Reshad Jones
Casey Hayward and Jason Verrett are as good as any corner duo in the league. However, the Chargers really felt the loss of Eric Weddle last year. They need a young game changing safety to set the tone on the back end. Adams gets the nod over Malik Hooker here as he is the more versatile play maker and physical player. 


Adams has all the intangibles to help lead the defense for a decade. He has to size and athletic ability to play both safety spots and play in the slot. Adams is a premier hitter that loves to play physical football. He is an absolute heat seeking missile and game changer than can make a defense elite.






8. CAROLINA PANTHERS (6-10)
CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY-RB/KR-STANFORD
6-0/202
VALOR CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL 
CASTLE ROCK, CO 
NFL Comparison: Jamaal Charles/Theo Riddick 
This would be an ideal landing spot for McCaffery as he would not NEED to be the focal point of the offense. The Panthers already have great offensive weapons with Cam Newton, Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin.  McCaffery can contribute in the run game, pass game and return game. The rumors are that he has a promise from a team in the top 10. If this rumor is true it's most likely Carolina as the Bills and Bengals already have similar backs in LeSean McCoy and Gio Bernard respectively. 





9. CINCINNATI BENGALS (6-9-1)

OJ HOWARD-TE-BAMA
6-6/251/33.75
AUTAUGA ACADEMY 
PRATTVILLE, AL
NFL Comparison: Greg Olsen/Kellen Winslow II
Bengals beat writers, Jay Morrison and Paul Dehner Jr. have linked the stud TE to Cincinnati. Given Tyler Eifert's injury history and impending free agency in 2018 it  makes a lot of sense to get a game changer like Howard. 

10. BUFFALO BILLS (7-9) 

MIKE WILLIAMS-WR-CLEMSON 
6-4/218/33.4
LAKE MARION HIGH SCHOOL 
SANTEE, SC 
NFL Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins/Jordy Nelson
The Bills were 30th in passing last season. This seems like an easy decision to me. The Bills pair the big Clemson WR with the speedy and versatile former Clemson WR Sammy Watkins. 


11. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (7-9) 
MARSHON LATTIMORE-CB-OHIO ST. 
6-0/192/31.25
GLENVILLE HIGH SCHOOL 
CLEVELAND

NFL Comparison: Darius Slay/Desmond Trufant 
The Saints need an athletic corner to machup with guys like Julio Jones and Mike Evans twice a year. The Saints defense is horrendous and needs help at every level. Lattimore appears to be the top cover corner in a very deep class at the position. He could go as high as #2 to San Fran, at #6 he is worth the trade up for the Saints.


12. CLEVELAND BROWNS
VIA PRE DRAFT TRADE WITH THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (7-9)

6-3/259/32.1
DEREK BARNETT -EDGE/DE/OLB-TENNESSEE 
BRENTWOOD ACADEMY
BRENTWOOD, TN
NFL Comparison: Dee Ford/Olivier Vernon
After taking what they hope will be their future franchise QB at #1, the Browns stay at #12 and get an elite pass rusher. GM Sashi Brown is an analytics guru who will value Barnett's high production over his below average combine measurables. 

  
13. ARIZONA CARDINALS (7-8-1)
REUBEN FOSTER-LB-BAMA
6-0/229/32.4
AUBURN HIGH SCHOOL
AUBURN, AL 
NFL Comparison: CJ Mosley/Jerod Mayo
GM Steve Keim almost always goes with the best player available and takes chances on guys that have slipped in the draft to to character or injury concerns (Robert Nkemdiche in 2015 and Tyrann Mathieu in 2013).  Foster is a top 10 talent that may slide a little due to concerns from a failed drug test and being sent home from the combine. 




14. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
VIA PRE DRAFT TRADE WITH THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS (8-8) 
HAASON REDDICK-EDGE/OLB/ILB-TEMPLE
6-1/237/32.75
HADDON HEIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL 
CAMDEN, NJ 
NFL Comparison: Thomas Davis at LB/Lorenzo Alexander at EDGE rusher 
What an incredible story this would be. Reddick is a local product from Camden, New Jersey. He walked on to Temple, overcame high school injuries and transformed his body to become a first round prospect. He is an athletic freak that tested well in nearly every event at the combine. 

The Eagles have several studs on the defensive line in Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry. However the LB core needs more athletes. Reddick makes a lot of sense here. 


15. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (8-8)
CHARLES HARRIS-EDGE/DE-MISSOURI 
6-3/255/32.4
LINCOLN PARK PREP 
KANSAS CITY
NFL Comparison: Ryan Kerrigan/Cliff Avril
New Colts GM is on record saying “We want high-character guys that love football, that will hold each other accountable, that will be good teammates." Harris was a productive college player in the SEC averaging 8 sacks and 16.25 tackles for loss over the past 2 years. He didn't test well at the combine, but his production and intangibles make him the perfect fit for the Colts. They need a pass rusher and he should be able to transition to a stand up edge rusher in their 3-4 defense.


16. BALTIMORE RAVENS (8-8) 
COREY DAVIS-WR-WESTERN MICHIGAN 
6-3/209/33.0
WHEATON WARRENVILLE SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL 
WHEATON, IL 
NFL Comparison: Roddy White/Reggie Wayne 
Mike Wallace had a nice year and really clicked with Joe Flacco. However, Breshad Perriman hasn't lived up to a first round pick and they need a true #1 WR. Davis is an elite route runner with good size to become Joe Flacco's go to guy. 



17. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (12-4)
(projected trade with WASHINGTON
WASHINGTON  (8-7-1) receives #27 and #59
DESHAUN WATSON-QB-CLEMSON 
6-2/221
GAINESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL 
GAINESVILLE, GA 
NFL Comparison: Alex Smith/Donovan McNabb
Watson is a great leader that is mature, smart and has all the intangibles that one looks for in a starting QB. But make no mistake, Watson is limited with his size and arm. His running ability is impressive but he needs to become a better pocket passer if he wants to have a 10+ year career. If he slips this far, you bet Andy Reid will be in GM John Dorsey's ear about trading up for Watson. This would be an ideal situation as he could sit for a year and then take over for Alex Smith. Smith would become a great trade asset as well. 


18. TENNESSEE TITANS
JOHN ROSS-WR-WASHINGTON
5-11/188/31.5
JORDAN HIGH SCHOOL 
LONG BEACH, CA
NFL Comparison: DeSean Jackson/Santonio Holmes 
The Titans get the speedster that broke the combine record for the 40 time. The Titans will now hope a solid corner is starting caliber corner is still available in the 3rd round. 

19. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS 
(projected trade with TAMPA BAY) 
TAMPA Receives #26 and #125 and 2018 3rd RD pick 
GARETT BOLLES-OT/G-UTAH 
6-5/297/34.0
WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL
SARATOGA SPRINGS, UT

NFL Comparison: Jake Matthews/Joe Staley
Seattle had the worst offensive line in football and their key O-Line free agent signing was former draft bust Luke Joeckel. Bolles is the most athletic lineman in this draft. He has the potential to be a solid starting LT in the league for many years.


20. DENVER BRONCOS (9-7)

RYAN RAMCZYK-OT-WISCONSIN
6-6/310/33.75
STEVENS POINT AREA HIGH SCHOOL
STEVENS POINT, WI
NFL Comparison: Joe Staley/Riley Reiff
It seems like a forgone conclusion that the Broncos will take the best offensive tackle available. They have an enormous need at left tackle and have worked out/visited with all of the top offensive tackles. Ramczyk doesn't have All Pro potential but he should develop into a solid long term starter. 



21. DETROIT LIONS (9-7)
TACO CHARLTON-5T/DE/DT-MICHIGAN 
6-6/277/34.25
PICKERINGTON HIGH SCHOOL 
PICKERINGTON, OH 
NFL Comparison: Chander Jones/Carlos Dunlap 
I have the Lions taking in state DE prospect from Michigan. The Lions finished 30th in sacks last year despite having one elite pass rusher in Ziggy Ansah. My guess is that they take the best pass rusher on the board between Barnett, Harris, Charlton or Taak McKinley. 


22. MIAMI DOLPHINS (10-6)
FORREST LAMP-G/RT-WESTERN KENTUCKY 
6-4/309/32.25
VENICE HIGH SCHOOL
VENICE, FL 
NFL Comparison: Justin Pugh/Kyle Long 
Do the Dolphins love Lamp? This wouldn't be a glamorous pick but it would be exactly what the Dolphins need to as they want to kick Laremy Tunsil outside to left tackle.. Lamp is the premier interior offensive line prospect in this year's class. This is a very safe pick as offensive guards taken in the first round have a very low bust rate.


23. NEW YORK GIANTS (11-5)
CAM ROBINSON-OT-BAMA
6-6/322
WEST MONROE HIGH SCHOOL 
MONROE, LA
NFL Comparison: Jason Peters at LT/Marcus Gilbert at RT
Robinson is still a top offensive line prospect despite some character concerns stemming from an off-season arrest. The G-Men need more bodies to keep the pressure off of Eli. Erick Flowers has really struggled at LT in his first two years. Robinson has 3 years of starting experience at LT in the SEC where he held his own against many stat pass rushers. He has the potential to be a solid starting LT in the league for many years. He could allow the Giants to move Flowers to the right side. 



24. OAKLAND RAIDERS (12-4)
JARRAD DAVIS-LB-FLORIDA
6-2/230
CAMDEN COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL 
KINGSLAND, GA
NFL Comparison: Lawrence Timmons
Davis is a highly skilled player and mature leader. He is the type of guy Jack Del Rio loves. Davis played with Del Rio's son at Florida, so obviously Del Rio knows what type of locker room guy he would be getting. Davis has the size and skill set to start at either the Mike or Will LB spot.  



25. HOUSTON TEXANS (9-7)
PATRICK MAHOMES-QB-TEXAS TECH
6-2/225
WHITEHOUSE HIGH SCHOOL
WHITEHOUSE, TX
NFL Comparison: Jay Cutler/Colin Kaepernick

Mahomes has the size and elite arm strength that coach and QB guru Bill O'Brian looks for. He has all the tools but is very raw and inconsistent. He was a 2nd/3rd round prospect pre-combine that has seen his stock is rise and he may go as high as the top ten. 


26. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (9-7)
(projected trade DOWN with SEATTLE) 
DALVIN COOK-RB-FSU
5-10/210
MIAMI CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
NFL Comparison: DeMarco Murray/Edgerrin James
Tampa goes with a Sunshine state college product for the third year in a row. Cook makes too much sense here as Tampa is clearly not sold on Doug Martin in the long term. Injuries and off the field maturity concerns have dropped Cook below Fournette and McCaffery. Tampa wants to take their offense to the next level and they need a franchise back to do it.



27. WASHINGTON REDSKINS
(projected trade DOWN with KANSAS CITY
CHRIS WORMLEY-5T/3T/DT-MICHIGAN 
6-5/298/34.1
WHITMER HIGH SCHOOL
TOLEDO, OH
NFL Comparison: Derek Wolfe 
At #17 this would be a reach, but at the end of the first round, this is a great pick for a team desperate for D-Line help. Chris Baker was their only reliable starter on the defensive line last year and they let him leave via free agency. They were horrible against both the run and the pass. Wormley can have an instant impact in Washington. 



28. DALLAS COWBOYS (13-3)
TAKKARIST MCKINLEY-EDGE/OLB/SLB-UCLA
6-4/250/34.75
KENNEDY HIGH SCHOOL 
RICHMOND, CA
NFL Comparison: Tamba Hali 
Jerry Jones is on the record saying that the Cowboys need a premier pass rusher. McKinley wants to play for Dallas and the Cowboys have met with him several times in the draft process. This could be a perfect match come draft day. 



29. GREEN BAY PACKERS (10-6)
CHIDOBE AWUZIE-FS/CB/DB-COLORADO 
6-1/202/30.6
OAK GROVE HIGH SCHOOL 
SAN JOSE, CA
NFL Comparison: Nnamdi Asomugha
Similar to Keanu Neal and Eli Apple last year, Awuzie is shooting up draft boards and is now likely to land in the first round. He has great size for a corner who also has some experience at safety. His physical play and versatility set him apart from the other corner prospects in this draft. GM Ted Thompson has a history of taking the best player on the board and taking potential replacements for potential free agents.  


30. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (11-5)  

JABRILL PEPPERS-S/CB/LB/DB-MICHIGAN 
5-11/213/30.75
PARAMUS CATHOLIC
EAST ORANGE, NJ
NFL Comparison: TJ Ward at SS/Quintin Demps at KR/S

Peppers would be a steal here and is a perfect fit for a Pittsbugh defense that loves to blitz defensive backs. He may not be Troy Polamalu but he could be a nice upgrade at strong safety. 



31. ATLANTA FALCONS (11-5)
JORDAN WILLIS-OLB/EDGE-KANSAS ST.
6-4/252/33.1
ROCKHURST HIGH SCHOOL
KANSAS CITY 
NFL Comparison: Jerry Hughes
Speed and motor are tow things that Dan Quinn loves and those are the two things that Jordan Willis has in spades. Vic Beasley looks like a superstar, now they need a second elite pass rusher, Willis can help give them that. 

.

32. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
via pre draft trade with the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 
DAVID NJOKU-TE-MIAMI
6-4/246/35.25
CEDAR GROVE HIGH SCHOOL 
CEDAR GROVE, NJ
NFL Comparison: Dallas Clark/Jared Cook 
With three picks in the top 42 they can afford to take a luxury pick on the second best TE in this draft. Despite have major holes on defense, the Saints have proved in the past that they will always take offensive skill players high if the value is there (Michael Thomas-2016, Brandin Cooks-2014 and Mark Ingram-2011)





Second Round


33. CLEVELAND BROWNS
ZACH CUNNINGHAM-LB-VANDERBILT 
6-3/234/34.4
NFL Comparison: KJ Wright/Derrick Johnson 
The Browns make a boring pick after shocking the world on Thursday night 


34. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
CURTIS SAMUEL-WR/RB-OHIO ST. 
5-11/196
NFL Comparison: Randall Cobb/Golden Tate
The 49ers need all of the offensive weapons they can get, New Head Coach Kyle Shanahan will find ways to get this guy the ball in space. 

35. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 
EVAN ENGRAM-TE-OLE MISS
6-3/234/33.5
NFL Comparison: Charles Clay/smaller Vernon Davis
Offensive line is the bigger need but there's a huge drop from Engram to the next best TE available. The Jags can address the offensive line with multiple picks in the later rounds.

36. CHICAGO BEARS 
DESHONE KIZER-QB-NOTRE DAME
6-5/230
NFL Comparison: Steve McNair/Blake Bortles
Mike Glennon isn't the long term answer in Chicago, but Kizer isn't NFL ready. This could be a good situation for Kizer. 


37. LOS ANGELES RAMS 
MALIK MCDOWELL-DT-MICHIGAN ST.
6-6/280/34.75
NFL Comparison: Malik Jackson/Cameron Heyward
New DC Wade Phillips will want to find a long defensive lineman in the Derek Wolfe/Malik Jackson mold that he had in Denver. McDowell is a great value pick that has top 15 talent but lacks consistency. 

38. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS 
DAVIS WEBB-QB-CAL
6-5/230
NFL Comparison: Jake Locker
Rivers is 35 and he won't be around forever. Webb could go anywhere from the late 1st to 4th round. 

39. NEW YORK JETS 
KEVIN KING-Press CB-WASHINGTON
6-3/200/32.0
NFL Comparison: Jimmy Smith
The Jets get the right fit for their press scheme. KIng is a long, athletic corner that can compete for a starting job right away. The Jets' corners are among the worst in the league right now. 

40. CAROLINA PANTHERS

ZAY JONES-WR-EAST CAROLINA
6-2/201/32.5
NFL Comparison: Pierre Garcon 
Cam gets another weapon here. Jones has good mix of speed, size and hands. He could sneak into the first round and pass John Ross as the third WR in this draft class 

41. CINCINNATI BENGALS
GAREON CONLEY-CB-OHIO ST. 
6-0/194/33.0
NFL Comparison: Vontae Davis/Stephon Gilmore
The Bengals seem to always take chances on guys with character concerns. Conley does make sense in the 2nd round though. 



42. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
TJ WATT-OLB/EDGE-WISCONSIN
6-4/252/33.1
NFL Comparison: Clay Matthews
The Saints get the pass rusher they need midway through the second round 


43. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
TRE'DAVIOUS WHITE-CB-LSU
5-11/192/32.13
NFL Comparison: Janoris Jenkins/Morris Claiborne
The Eagles by far and away are the worst CB group in the NFL. They need to use two high picks to address this group. White is a good cover corner with great speed and has a lot of starting experience in big games. 

44. BUFFALO BILLS 
MARLON HUMPHREY-CB-BAMA
6-0/197/32.2
NFL Comparison: Josh Norman/Logan Ryan
Humphrey is a good zone corner that can provide an ideal replacement for Stephon Gilmore. He has the great size and length for the modern NFL corner.  

45. ARIZONA CARDINALS 
MARCUS MAYE-S/DB-FLORIDA
6-0/210/32.5
NFL Comparsion: Tony Jefferson  
The Cards lost DJ Swearinger in free agency. Maye would be an ideal replacement with his ability to play both safety spots  

46. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 
JOE MIXON-RB-OKLAHOMA
6-1/226
NFL Comparison: Todd Gurley
Can the Colts give star QB Andrew Luck and aging RB Frank Gore some help please? Mixon is as good as any back in the draft but the previous domestic violence incident makes his draft range a mystery. 

47. BALTIMORE RAVENS 
DION DAWKINS-RT/G-TEMPLE
6-4/314/35.0
NFL Comparison: Ronald Leary 
Not a sexy pick, but Dawkins is exactly what the Ravens offensive line needs to become an elite unit. He is the high character type of prospect that GM Ozzie Newsome likes to draft.

48. MINNESOTA VIKINGS
JOSH JONES-SS/DB-NC ST. 
6-1/220/32.0
NFL Comparison: Barry Church 
Harrison Smith is right there with Earl Thomas and Eric Berry among the best safeties in the league but he needs some help at strong safety. Jones is a hard hitting box safety can fit alongside Smith. 

49. WASHINGTON REDSKINS
PAT ELFLEIN-G/C-OHIO ST. 
6-3/303/33.25
NFL Comparison: Ryan Kalil 
Elflein can come in and compete for a starting guard spot while providing them insurance at center. 

50. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS 
BUDDA BAKER-FS/NCB-WASHINGTON
5-10/196/30.6
NFL Comparison: Devin McCourty/Kurt Coleman  
In a division with Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees you need to have safeties that can cover. Baker has great ball skills and can play a lot of roles in a secondary. 

51. DENVER BRONCOS 
GERALD EVERETT-TE-SOUTH ALABAMA
6-3/239/33.0
NFL Comparison: Delanie Walker
Both Virgil Green and Cody Latimer have been major disappointments. They need a pass catching TE to take the pressure off of Thomas and Sanders. Everett is raw but has the skill set to become a highly productive pass catching TE. 

52. CLEVELAND BROWNS
VIA PRE DRAFT TRADE WITH THE TENNESSEE TITANS 
OBI MELIFONWU-S/CB/DB-UCONN
6-4/224/32.25
NFL Comparison: George Iloka/Taylor Mays
The athletic freak that may go as high as the top 20 with is elite size and athletic ability. They hope to move him all around the secondary. The Browns need a big corner to help out Haden and Taylor, both of whom are under 6 foot. Obi has ideal size and length to guard TE's and bigger WR's.  


53. DETROIT LIONS 
ADOREE JACKSON-CB/KR-USC
5-10/186/31.4
NFL Comparison: Adam Jones/Jason Verrett
Jackson is an electric playmaker that will can give the Lions an edge in the return game. He has shown he can become a good cover corner despite his size.  

54. MIAMI DOLPHINS 
QUINCY WILSON-Press CB-FLORIDA
6-1/211/32.25
NFL Comparison: Xavier Rhodes/Trumaine Johnson
The Dolphins get the local kid from Fort Lauderdale. He is a physical corner that will fit their scheme nicely. 

55. NEW YORK GIANTS 
TIM WILLIAMS-OLB/SLB/EDGE-BAMA
6-4/237/32.75
NFL Comparison: Bruce Irvin
The Giants had interest in Leonard Floyd last year. Williams might not be as good as Floyd, but he could earn a role as a pass rush specialist and then develop into a starting SLB. 

56. OAKLAND RAIDERS
ALVIN KAMARA-RB-TENNESSEE 
5-10/214
NFL Comparison: Mark Ingram
The Raiders signed Beast Mode but they still need a RB of the future and a good #2 back to spell him. 

57. HOUSTON TEXANS
DALVIN TOMLINSON-3T/NT/DT-BAMA
6-3/310/33.5
NFL Comparison: Jonathan Hankins 
Tomlinson was overshadowed on the Bama defense by Allen and Foster, but he was a very important piece to the success of their defense. He can really help out JJ Watt in stopping the run. 


58. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS 
TEEZ TABOR-Press Zone CB-FLORIDA
6-0/199/32.0
NFL Comparison: Aqib Talib/Malcolm Butler
Tabor was a lock to be a top ten pick before this season. However, his stock has slipped due to attitude concerns and a brutally slow 40 time. He would be a great addition to the Legion of Boom. 

59. WASHINGTON REDSKINS

(projected trade DOWN with KANSAS CITY
RAEKWON MCMILLAN-LB-OHIO ST. 
6-2/240/33.0
NFL Comparison: Alec Ogletree
The Redskins get a hard hitter in the middle of their defense

60. DALLAS COWBOYS 
JUSTIN EVANS-SS/DB-TEXAS A&M
6-0/199/32.0
NFL Comparison: Antrel Rolle 
Their has been talk that Evans could go to Dallas in the first round. He makes a lot more sense in the second. He is physical player that can help make up for the losses of Barry Church and JJ Wilcox at strong safety. 

61. GREEN BAY PACKERS 
DAN FEENEY-G/C-INDIANA
6-4/305/33.4
NFL Comparison: TJ Lang
The Packers need some help at guard after letting Josh Sitton and TJ Lang leave in back to back seasons. 

62. PITTSBURGH STEELERS  
FABIAN MOREAU-PRESS MAN CB/DB-UCLA
6-1/206/31.4
NFL Comparison: Prince Amukamara
The Steelers need help on the back end at both safety and corner. 


63. ATLANTA FALCONS 
TAYLOR MOTON-OG-WESTERN MICHIGAN 
6-5/319/34.2
NFL Comparison: Zach Fulton 
The Falcons need a starting guard. Moton's stock is rising and he could be a sleeper to go in the first round. 

64. CAROLINA PANTHERS
DEMARCUS WALKER-DE/EDGE-FSU
6-4/280/33.0
NFL Comparison: Cameron Jordan
Walker is a good fit for Carolina's defense with his ability to set the edge and rush the passer. 




Third  Round

65. CLEVELAND BROWNS
SIDNEY JONES-CB-WASHINGTON 
6-0/186/31.5

NFL Comparison: Sam Shields 

66. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
CORDREA TANKERSLEY-Press Man CB-CLEMSON 
6-1/199/32.5
NFL Comparison: Byron Maxwell  

67. CHICAGO BEARS
