Two Round 2017 NFL Mock Draft

Round 1

Pick 1, Cleveland Browns

Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

Garrett is hands down the best player in this draft. He has a real chance to be a future franchise cornerstone and a player that could help turn the Browns organization around. With a Von Miller-like build and a clear motivation to succeed in the league, the sky is the limit for Myles Garrett. Unless the Browns pull a Browns and don’t pick him, Garrett will almost positively be the first player off the board in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Pick 2, San Francisco 49ers

Mitchell Trubisky, QB, UNC

I have a strong feeling that the 49ers will trade down from the second overall slot in order to accumulate more picks. That would make a lot of sense, because there is no clear cut second best player in this draft and the 49ers could still find a way to get a quality quarterback, be it Trubisky, Watson, Mahomes or someone else, later in the first round. However, in this situation of San Fran staying put, they still opt quarterback this high in the draft. The 49ers roster currently consists of two quarterbacks: Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley. With two of the most underwhelming names in sports at the helm of their franchise, the 49ers desperately need a quarterback, and many think Trubisky is the top of the class. He’s accurate and has a strong arm, but people question if he’ll be able to adapt to the NFL and learn professional offenses. That being said, Trubisky is a very solid player and has a chance o be something special in the NFL.

Pick 3, Chicago Bears

Jamal Adams, S, LSU

The Bears biggest weakness in 2016 was their secondary, so Adams fills an immediate hole on the roster. But drafting Adams won’t just be a pick fulfilling need, as he’s the best player available at this point in my opinion. Adams is smooth and instinctual at the safety position with excellent coverage skills. He’s the perfect fit for Chicago at 3rd overall.

Pick 4, Jacksonville Jaguars

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

Jacksonville signed Chris Ivory last offseason in hopes that he would be a solid starter to balance the Jag’s pass-happy offense. Ivory wasn’t bad last season,  but he wasn’t enough to take the pressure off of Blake Bortles, and the Jaguars offense sputtered all season long. Fournette will immediately bring this offense to another level and has the potential to be an All-Pro right out of the gates.

Pick 5, Tennessee Titans

Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

Thomas has top 3 ability and is a great fit for a quietly solid Titans defensive line. Alongside Jurell Casey, Thomas has could elevate the Titans defense to something special.

Pick 6, New York Jets

OJ Howard, TE, Alabama

Jets tight ends have notoriously been the least productive position group in the league over the past few years. They combined for just 18 receptions last year. With Austin Sefairan-Jenkins, who accounted for 10 of those catches, suspended, the Jets need tight end help badly. Howard is an athletic wonder and will immediately top the Jets depth chart and contribute.

Pick 7, Los Angeles Chargers

Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State

The Chargers will be looking for exciting players bolster their roster for their move to Los Angeles. Malik Hooker fits that mold. Hooker is fast and has superb ball tracking abilities, making him a candidate to be an interception machine for the Chargers in 2017.

Pick 8, Carolina Panthers

John Ross, WR, Washington

There will be lots of talk about Leonard Fournette or Christian McCaffery for Carolina here at 8. If Fournette is available still, Carolina will take him. However, it is looking increasingly unlikely that he will still be on the board by the time the Panthers are on the clock. Instead Carolina will take the fastest man in the history of the NFL combine. Ross ran a 4.22 second 40 and will slide right in to the #2 wide receiver role recently vacated by Ted Ginn Jr.

Pick 9, Cincinnati Bengals

Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

Ruben Foster seems like the perfect fit for the Bengals here, but in light of his recent off the field issues, it looks like Foster won’t be going in the first round anymore. However, the Bengals will be lucky if Lattimore falls this far, as he has potential top 5 talent. With Pacman Jones aging, Lattimore will be an investment for the future.

Pick 10, Buffalo Bills

Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

Williams isn’t particularly fast, but he’s tall and attacks the ball in the air. He’ll form a dangerous combination with Sammy Watkins for the Bills, giving Tyrod Taylor a pair of big outside targets.

Pick 11, New Orleans Saints

Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

Pick 12, Cleveland Browns

Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
