It’s time to update our mock draft as free agency’s settled down and the draft class continues to gain clarity as we get more data on prospects as teams begin to finalize their rankings. That means even NFL teams don’t know what they’ll do just yet so it’s a very fluid situation.  Mind you this

Mind you this isn’t our big board, rather it’s a prediction of how things will unfold in the draft in its first two days come April 27th and 28th.

1. Cleveland Browns – Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

After the combine, Garrett becomes even more of a no-brainer pick for Cleveland as he’s clearly the best prospect in the draft.

The Browns will have to decide between the clear BPA and a quarterback. But they seem in no hurry to force a pick behind center rather trying to acquire talent worth building around. Garrett certainly would be that and the Browns have ample draft capital to snatch a quarterback after this.

2. San Fransisco 49ers –  DeShaun Watson, QB, Clemson

This is where the draft really starts as we don’t know how the 49ers newest decision makers will act on their first draft night. In this mock world of mock drafts, many media types have begun to give them the best defender available; either Solomon Thomas, Jonathan Allen or one of the top safeties.

Color me skeptical. After having already drafted two defensive ends suited for a three man front in the top 10 I’d find it hard to believe the 9ers go with another defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Going safety at pick No. 2 also seems fairly unlikely as that would be the highest safety ever drafted since 1991. Much more likely the 49ers will get their team back on track by drafting a quarterback, either DeShaun Watson or Mitchell Trubisky. Both are athletic quarterbacks who fit Kyle Shanahan’s offense and have separated themselves as the cream of the crop in this class.

There’s no denying this is a reach draft value wise but quarterbacks rarely last long when there’s a consensus top group. Watson has the experience, leadership traits, and big game exposure to be more NFL ready than most give him credit for. Used the right way he could be a fun player in the league.

3. Chicago Bears – Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

The Bears have the same conundrum as the pick above, deciding on a quarterback or the best defender available. Having paid Mike Glennon gives them a bit of insurance but he’s basically on the books for one year and would be easy to cut if that first season doesn’t play out well.

The need for a franchise quarterback still remains and with Trubisky around it would be hard for the Bears to stand pat. Watson’s attitude and style would fit Chicago to perfection but Trubisky could get the offense back on track after sitting behind Glennon for a year.

John Fox has been picked in the top three twice before in Carolina and Denver and his teams have gone with edge rushers both times. Chicago could do the same picking Thomas or Allen here but again, quarterbacks who are the consensus top of the group rarely last long.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars – Leonard Fournette, RB, Louisiana State

This pick’s a bit easier to draw up as the Jags have made tons of moves in free agency to upgrade their promising defense. Now the offense needs some fixing after an extremely disappointing 2016 season. With Jacksonville rolling the dice once again on Blake Bortles, Fournette would be the perfect added playmaker to help the QB and the offensive line – their two biggest issues.

While Fournette is a different style of back from Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott he’s that rare supremely skilled back that’s worth a pick this high.

5. Tennessee Titans (from Rams) – Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

Thomas is seemingly a candidate to go at every pick after one as his meteoric rise will not cease. He gets selected here by the Titans who’ll have lots of options at this pick. Thomas is the best player available and would be a nice upgrade on the Titans defensive front that could use an injection of youth on the edges.

They have plenty of picks further down to address the other needs.

6. New York Jets – Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

Lattimore has separated himself as the clear-cut best cornerback in this class in the last few months and he should be going right in this range. The Jets are desperate for a quarterback here but they don’t find one worth selecting this high in this mock.

There best options available are going to be in the defensive backfield in this case and that means selecting between Lattimore or one of the two top safeties. With Darrelle Revis gone forever, the Jets need a corner who can truly lock down one-half of the field and the Buckeye redshirt sophomore fits that bill.

7. Los Angeles Chargers – Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State

Things fall nicely for the Bolts at this pick as they’ll have ample choice at need positions. Allen would be intriguing to pair up with Joey Bosa and Corey Liuget up front but the Chargers greater weakness seems to be in the defensive backfield where they’ve added a few nice corners through the years but need more solidity up the middle since Eric Weddle’s departure.

The choice will be between Hooker and Jamal Adams. Hooker has been sidelined during the combine workouts due to injury but should be available for camp while Adams is more of an in-the-box intimidator. Hooker has the more coveted skills and goes ahead here regardless of the injury – assuming he’s cleared by the team’s medical staff.

8. Carolina Panthers – Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama

The Panthers are rumored to be interested in both Fournette and Thomas and have even been said to consider a trade up with the 49ers at two to ensure one of those two talents. Getting Allen at pick eight overall isn’t a bad consolation prize.

With the Panthers needing more youth at defensive end Allen is a perfect fit and would also fit the type of DE that the Panthers like to use; a bit on the bigger side with power to hold up against the run.

9. Cincinnati Bengals – Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan

The Bengals seem well positioned to take the best interior linebacker or the best wide receiver here – it’s worth mentioning that teams picking six-through-nine could all use offensive line help though there’s no one who merits such a high pick. But with a rare top 10 selection, I’m not so sure they value the receiver position that highly nor the inside backer spot.

What they’ve always valued in abundance are defensive ends with length a box that Charlton checks off. He also has a developing arsenal of pass rushing moves including a devastating spin move that would instantly make him one of Cincy’s most dangerous edge rushers on the roster.

A surprise pick of sorts the Bengals can afford to go another direction as their roster is well stocked with youth at several key positions.

10. Buffalo Bills – Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

The Bills are trying to get things back in line after the Rex Ryan era came to an abrupt end. With their top two picks from 2016 coming back healthy in 2017 they can focus on adding to the offense which lacked consistency last season.

Even though they traded up to get Sammy Watkins just a few drafts ago their receiving core is lacking in depth now and Watkins has yet to blossom into the top receiver prospect they hoped he’d be by now.

Enter Davis who’s been unable to workout at the combine and his pro day due to a shoulder and ankle injuries that kept him out of both respectively. Both injuries seem relatively minor and shouldn’t hinder his stock too much. What could is his inability to perform in the athletic tests and confirm the speed he shows on tape. If he checks out medically for the Bills staff and they’re confident in his route running ability and in creating separation he’d be a great pick. Giving Tyrod Taylor two phenomenal young receivers on the outside who could immediately open up space for Buffalo’s run game.

11. New Orleans Saints – Haason Reddick, OLB, Temple

The Saints have made it clear that the priority this offseason is to add more talent to the defense that’s severely lacking, which seems like a good plan since the offense is still able to put up 30 points in their sleep.

That means the Saints are going with the best available defender here. They could use another inside linebacker and could consider Reuben Foster here who’s stock’s lost a bit of shine with an injury that held him out of athletic testing and an abrupt exit from Indy. Reddick, on the other hand, is perfectly suited for the modern NFL and has only risen up boards during the draft process.

The appeal to Reddick for a team like the Saints is that he can help in a variety of ways. For starters he’s a three-down backer who can cover sideline-to-sideline, has good instincts to penetrate and make plays against the run for losses of yards. But he’s also an edge bender and could be used as a situational pass rusher while also being a dangerous Blitzer who could be moved around to manufacture pressure. That helps New Orleans in two areas in which they’re desperate for help.

12. Cleveland Browns (from Eagles) – Jamal Adams, SS, LSU

If you’re going to pass on a quarterback twice you better make it count and by taking Garrett and Adams the Browns would come away with two stud defenders from the SEC who could be long-term building blocks for their team.

This is probably the lowest Adams will go on draft day as he could go much higher. Since he’s a player who’s at his best in the box don’t be surprised if he goes just a tad lower than where he’s being projected by most.

13. Arizona Cardinals – Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

Arizona is a very interesting team in this draft as they’re one of the teams that could be tempted to take a quarterback early. Especially with two big armed guys remaining in DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes who fit what Bruce Arians is looking for.

They could also be tempted by Jabrill Peppers as they have an affinity for versatile back-seven players and do need to replace safety Tony Jefferson.

While all those picks sound nice the Cards have done a lot to put themselves in a position to win now the last few years and adding more depth/talent at wide receiver after Micheal Floyd busted.

Williams has some questions regarding his ability to consistently create separation, but his size, leaping ability, and dominance on contested catches would prove crucial to Carson Palmer who’d have another trusted target. Williams could also be a dominant red-zone threat with the right staff.

14. Philadelphia Eagles (from Vikings) – Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

The Eagles are set up nicely in this draft as most of their needs are at deep positions in this 2017 class. They’ve been very active interviewing several players. They’ve visited most of all with John Ross and Christian McCaffrey while also visiting with all the top cornerback prospects (including a couple visits with Colorado’s Chidobe Awuzie.)

However, with Jim Schwartz as their new defensive coordinator, Philly needs to add a pass rushing force on the defensive front to make everything work according to plan.

With four guys off the board already in this scenario moving on one now would make lots of sense. Barnett isn’t necessarily dripping with upside like lots of these top tier talents but he’s been an ultra-productive pass rusher and has all the skills required to be a complete edge player in the league. He’s ready to contribute immediately and with a top coordinator on his side like Schwartz, he could be a high-level producer sooner rather than later.

15. Indianapolis Colts – O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

The Colts are in need of more defensive talent even after making a couple additions in free agency with Jabaal Sheard being the most notable. With Foster still around he’d be a great pick and adding another pass rusher like Takkarist McKinley would also make good sense.

In this case, though, Howard falls to 15 and he’d be hard to pass on around this pick. Indy has tried to build around young tight ends in the past to surround Andrew Luck with but Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen are now both long gone. Howard wouldn’t just help in blocking but he’d also be a big bodied miss match adding some much needed red zone upside for a team that’s loaded up on speedsters at receiver but is lacking for size.

16. Baltimore Ravens – Takkarist McKinley, EDGE, UCLA

Underrated by many, McKinley’s explosiveness and relentless playing style is worthy of a top 20 selection. The Ravens are now without Elvis Dumervil and their other pass rushers are getting long in the tooth. With lots of edge rushers coming off the board already the Ravens jump at McKinley who’s still very raw and has some significant margin for growth. He’d fit right into that division with his high motored attitude and intensity.

17. Washington Redskins – Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama

Foster’s fall ends here to Washington who should be ecstatic to have him land in their laps as they search for more talent all over the middle of their defense. Foster would be perfect and as long as his shoulder issues check out and there are no real off-field concerns he’d be a true steal here.

Washington might also consider Budda Baker at safety who’d be another great fit for them. With no real leadership at the top of the Redskins right now a flashy pick like Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, or John Ross could all be in play as well.

18. Tennessee Titans- John Ross, WR, Washington

The NFL values speed above all and Ross fits the mold of guys like Tavon Austin, Brandin Cooks, and Will Fuller who all went higher than expected on draft day – thanks to their speed – despite their lack of size. If injuries weren’t a major concern for Ross he could go significantly higher than this. With those concerns, he could drop some but this seems about the right range for him.

Tennessee needs to add more quality targets for their young quarterback and Ross is absolutely the best player available in this mock. He needs to be developed some as a route runner to be used in the slot but his speed will open up space in the Titans offense immediately.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

The Bucs managed to find a groove defensively towards the end of the year and though they’re far from perfect they’ve managed to add some nice young talent the past couple seasons.

Offensively they struggled, particularly when Doug Martin was injured as their run game was nonexistent. Even when Martin was on the field he only averaged 2.9 yards per carry. Simply put, an upgrade is necessary and McCaffrey would also add an option in the receiving game where Tampa is lacking for good targets over the middle of the field.

With Mac and DeSean Jackson added to the offense this group could become a lot more explosive and complex to defend against.

20. Denver Broncos – Ryan Ramczyk, LT, Wisconsin

It feels like the Broncos will go offense with this pick as the top inside backer and d-line targets are gone at this point. With Howard and McCaffrey gone, Denver could opt to go with Dalvin Cook or David Njoku but with depth at both the running back position and tight end in this draft they can wait on those spots.

A position they can’t wait on long is at left tackle where they have their pick of the litter in this scenario. You could make a case for all the top guys at this pick but Ramczyk is the cleanest selection as long as his injured hip gets cleared medically by the team’s staff.

Ramczyk already has great technique and good movement skills in pass protection which are his biggest selling points, but he’s also system versatile – he’d work in both a zone and power based schemes – and having only played one season of power five football there’s some untapped potential with him as well.

21. Detroit Lions – Jabrill Peppers, DB, Michigan

The Lions have a surprising amount of holes for a team picking this high. They’ve added some important pieces in free agency with a new starting right tackle in Ricky Wagner, and while they’re not explosive or all that scary on paper their offense is pretty good. They’ve invested some assets on the defensive line in recent years, but the backend is lacking in talent.

Enter Peppers who’d be perfectly suited as the Lions starting strong safety, but could also be moved around in sub packages helping cover the slot while also being an asset closer to the line of scrimmage and against the run. He’d be a beloved local pick and given his athleticism don’t be surprised if he goes higher than this to a team that has a plan in place for this versatile playmaker.

22. Miami Dolphins – Evan Engram, TE/WR, Ole Miss

Engram won’t be found in many mock drafts in the first round despite having run a 4.4 40 yard dash at 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds. As things have played out in this mock the top edge rushers have all gone early and Miami will have the opportunity to take a pass rusher and a cornerback in the later rounds.

They’re also in the process of building a suddenly promising young offense. They’ve added Julius Thomas, who’s no sure thing and Engram could play with him or as an h-back instead of Thomas if he’s injured. Regardless of position, he’s a miss match on the field and in the hands of a creative play caller like Adam Gase he could be one of the candidates for rookie of the year. This pick would allow the Fins to give the Patriots a taste of their own medicine in two tight end sets and using Engram spread out or out of the backfield.

23. New York Giants – Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

Both the Giants starting offensive tackles didn’t fare well last season and talent is needed on the roster to make a promising offense click at full force. Bolles, like Ramczyk, has emerged after only one season of starting at the power five level but he’s impressed with some special traits.

He’s super athletic which we saw at the combine and it shows on tape in pass protection or when he’s on the move and blocking at the second level where he finishes with a nasty edge. At 24 years old he’s also still raw but with the Giants in win now mode he already appears to be better than what they have and more naturally suited to play on the coveted left side.

24. Oakland Raiders – Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

Cook drops a bit here for a combination of different things most notably his injury history and a few off-field concerns. But the talent’s there for him to be remembered as a top 10 player in this class who could contribute immediately to an NFL roster.

That would be bad news for Oakland’s rivals as an already potent offense would gain another home run threat in Cook, who’d fit the silver and blacks swagger.

The Raiders have some needs to address on the defensive side but in a deep draft on ‘D,’ a Cook and Derek Carr pairing in the backfield could be too tantalizing to pass up.

25. Houston Texans – Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

The Texans lost A.J. Bouye in free agency and need to find a solid cornerback to keep their defense at a high level. In 2017 that won’t be a problem, likely a reason why they were able to let Bouye go. Humphrey fits very well as a replacement and really stands out when he plays with the action in front of him. He’s also long, extremely physical playing with swagger and has run a 4.4 so you know he has the speed to cover.

He needs to be more disciplined in his route recognition and tracking the ball deep as that’s his one issue but there’s plenty of upside for the Bama playmaker.

26. Seattle Seahawks – Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

The Seahawks have really struggled to fix their offensive line issues the last few years and they’re in desperate need here in the 2017 draft. With the top two offensive tackles already off the board, they’re best remaining options are Robinson and Forrest Lamp who’s a tackle only in some systems.

Given the Hawks propensity for picking gigantic and raw linemen in the past Robinson seems to fit the bill. He’s certainly got the length, high-level upside, and power. With one of the best line coaches in Tom Cable, they take more gambles than most on raw o-lineman.

As Seattle now publicly shops Richard Sherman, cornerback could also be in play and there are quite a few options in this draft. Adding talent up-front on offense remains a priority regardless.

27. Kansas City Chiefs – Chidobe Awuzie, DB, Colorado

The Chiefs are a very interesting team as Andy Reid can always surprise you. They also have some underrated needs; at offensive tackle, inside linebacker, and outside linebacker where their stars are getting too injury prone or old. A cornerback opposite Marcus Peters is also a big need and could take their defense to a higher level.

There’s ample choice here and Awuzie’s versatility makes him a valuable pick. He also has the size and speed on top of some outstanding tape to warrant this high a pick.

His ability to play close to the line of scrimmage, support against the run, cover outside or in the slot make him a great selection here.

28. Dallas Cowboys – David Njoku, TE, Miami

With a bit of a run on edge rushers and cornerbacks, the Boys will have some decisions to make if things unfold like this. They could choose to wait in the later rounds as the top tiers talents are gone or they could jump the gun and take someone like Tre’Davious White or Charles Harris.

With Rod Marinelli, the defense runs smoothly even without top tier talent and the Cowboys have the chance to build something truly special on offense. As they enter a new era they’ll need to find ways so that teams don’t simply set up in the box giving Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott room to do their magic. That’s where Njoku who could be the air apparent to Jason Witten enters. Njoku has huge upside and would already be a big added weapon in the red zone for Dallas.

29. Green Bay Packers – Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

The Packers actually spent some money in free agency on tight ends but did lose a starting guard. While they do need to add linebacker talent Lamp is a plug and play prospect at the guard spot, an easy pick to make.

He’d allow the offense to stay at a high level and the depth in this class on defense would allow the Packers to patch up other holes in the later rounds.

30. Pittsburgh Steelers – Budda Baker, FS, Washington

Baker’s a stud plain and simple. With him, the Steelers would find a playmaker in the secondary that’s been missing since Troy Polamalu left, though they operate slightly differently – think of Budda more as Tyrann Mathieu.

Baker would be an instant upgrade at free safety in Pittsburgh, he’s also a superb cover man out of the slot another big plus for the Steelers who are in need of more trustworthy DB’s in coverage.

31. Atlanta Falcons – T.J. Watt, EDGE, Wisconsin

The Falcons play a really unique defense and their young group began to come into its own towards the end of the season. They’re also going to get back their best cornerback in Desmond Trufant. But they still need to find more stars up front. Their rotation in the middle is intriguing but they’re still missing a real threat opposite Vic Beasley who led the league in sacks last season.

Watt fits that role to perfection and he also has a well-rounded game. Like Cliff Avril and Bruce Irvin in Dan Quinn’s defense in Seattle, Watt and Beasley could form a devastating duo.

Also worth mentioning, with Quinn’s past at Florida and his bias for players from that defense keep an eye out for Jarrad Davis at this pick as he’s gaining steam and could slip into the first.

32. New Orleans Saints (from Patriots) – Kevin King, DB, Washington

The Saints get this pick from the New England Patriots for Brandin Cooks. As mentioned up above in their earlier pick their goal is to keep adding defensive talent and after getting more pass rush in a promising linebacker like Reddick it’s time to address the cornerback position.

After Lattimore, it really comes down to scheme and what traits you value most in a corner. The top two candidates from the remaining crop are King and Tre’Davious White here who both have length with some intriguing upside. King’s stock is hot right now as he’s got length for days in addition to deep speed and is a willing tackler. He’s been more consistent than White which is why he’s the pick here as the Saints have three more picks in this mock to repair their roster.

    Apr 21 for Cleveland – Garrett and Adams would be a home run. Mahomes in the 2nd I could live with as well as fellow Buckeye McMillian 😉
