No. 1 Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Garrett is a cant miss prospect in this draft. With new DC Gregg Williams getting his hands on a relatively young Browns Defense, he will look to utilize his young studs to the best of their ability. GW will run a 4-3 Defense in Cleveland like he always has, so Garrett will have no problem adjusting to his defense as that is what they ran in Texas A&M during his tenure. Browns get a defensive corner stone with #1.
No. 2 San Francisco 49ers: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
The 49ers have had it with Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert as their only choices at QB, so they address that problem with their first round pick this year. Although Kizer may not be the most NFL ready QB in this years class, I would say that he has the highest potential of any other play caller in this years class. He is a project player, but if put in the right situation, could be something special, with all the physical tools you look for in a QB.
No. 3 Chicago Bears: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
We see two QB’s go back to back with the second and third pick in this years draft. Jay Cutler is set to become a free agent this year, and lets face it, as much as we may want to think so, Matt Barkley should not be in the discussion for being a franchise QB. John Fox will have some fun molding Trubisky into the guy that they want and need. Trubisky has a big arm and he’s not afraid to sling the rock when asked. With a potential threat such as Alshon Jeffery on your side (barring free agency decision) and Kevin White, Trubisky would have some pretty targets in his rookie year.
No. 4 Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama
After being promoted to the head coaching position in Jacksonville, Doug Marrone is going to be thrilled to see Jonathan Allen on the board at pick number 4. Allen played a very disruptive role in that big bad Bama defense. In 4 years at Alabama, Allen posted an astounding 28 sacks to go along with 152 total tackles and 3 FF. Allen would fit right into Jacksonville’s young defense. Allen and Dante Fowler Jr. would complement themselves nicely.
No. 5 Tennessee Titans: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
As I make this mock draft, I continue to wonder how Marcus Mariota looked so sharp this year with Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharp at WR 1 and 2. Now sit back and take a second to realize how scary their offense could be with a true number 1 receiver. Mike Williams is that player. Williams displays great ball control and serviceable balance in the year, not to mention that he also has great size measuring in at 6”3. Williams provides yet another threat on a surging Terry Robiskie, taking some pressure off of Murray and Henry, the well-oiled machines of this offense. Titans get a big red zone threat for their young QB.
No. 6 New York Jets: Tim Williams, EDGE, Alabama
WOAH! No QB pick here for the Jets as it would puzzle me that the Jest woud take another signal caller after drafting Christian Hackenberg in the second round in last years draft. Don’t panic Jets fans, as the team still addresses another need. They add Tim Williams for additional pressure behind that scary defensive line. The Jets defense posted a disappointing 27 sacks this year ranking in the top 5 least amount of sacks during the 2016 regular season. Williams displayed a constant motor during his 4 year tenure at Bama posting 20 sacks, 2 FF, and 30 TFL. The Jest draft defense in the first round again.
