With all of the recent developments and changes in the NFL Draft pick order, The Fan’s Kevin “KT” Turner has submitted his latest mock draft picks – Version 3.0. (Click here to see Cavanaugh’s latest mock draft.)
- Rams: Jared Goff QB California
– They made the trade to 1 because they knew they had to jump Cleveland, who was all in on Goff as well is the theory I’m going with. Criticized for making the trade, I actually understand it. That hefty price is the price you should have to pay to get the most coveted position in all of sports. Rams did what they had to do.READ MORE: Child Protective Services Investigating After Haltom City Police Find 1-Year-Old Alone In Street At Night
- Eagles: Carson Wentz QB North Dakota State
– Throwing in one trade on this version of my mock draft. Cleveland trades out and heads for the hills because they wanted Goff. The Eagles are the suckers that trade up to #2 to select Carson Wentz, who new head coach Doug Pederson appears to be infatuated with.
- Chargers: Laremy Tunsil OT Ole Miss
– While I’m not convinced this is the way they will go, it’s the pick that makes the most sense and is most likely to happen. Protect Rivers as he enters the final window of his career.
- Cowboys: Jalen Ramsey CB Florida State
– We’ve heard rumors and reports that the Cowboys like Ramsey. We’ve heard they’ll try him at CB. I think he’ll be good there long-term, but immediately he’ll have some hiccups, as safety is his best position. I think it’s smart to keep Zeke, Bosa, and Lynch in the discussion here.
- Jaguars: Joey Bosa DE Ohio State
– We talk about the Jaguars fast rising, high powered offense a lot, but this defense is making strides and Bosa only helps that.
- Ravens: DeForest Buckner DE Oregon
– Aside from Zeke, probably the best player available as the Ravens improve their run defense.
- 49ers: Ezekiel Elliott RB Ohio State
– I’m not sure if it makes the most sense, but considering the QB questions in SF, Elliott provides some stability to an offense with a lot of questions.
- Browns: Paxton Lynch QB Memphis
– It’s still hard for me to believe that Cleveland wouldn’t want a QB. They trade down to 8 getting a guy with perhaps a higher ceiling, and a true project for Hue Jackson to develop. For Cleveland in this draft, make sure to always consider them a trade down candidate, as accruing picks is their biggest goal.
- Buccaneers: Vernon Hargreaves CB Florida
– The best cover corner in this draft from day 1 is available and the Bucs need help in the secondary.
- Giants: Ronnie Stanley OT Notre Dame
– The Giants took an OT in this area of the draft last year, and they do it again to help protect Eli in the final window of his career.
- Bears: Sheldon Rankins DT Louisville
– He’ll play all over the D-line in the Bears 3-4 scheme, shedding blockers, taking on double teams, and finding the ball.
- Saints: Andrew Billings DT Baylor
– As the Saints continue to build up their defense, why not start with a hulking presence at the nose.
- Dolphins: Darron Lee LB Ohio State
– Lee’s best trait is that he can run, and the Dolphins add another playmaker to what should be a very good defense.
- Raiders: William Jackson CB Houston
– A physical, in your face CB who will annoy at the catch point, he’s got the length teams love and it just seems that Jackson is destined to go in the top 15.
- Titans: Jack Conklin OT Michigan State
– While their interest in Laremy Tunsil is understood, don’t forget that Taylor Lewan had a great year last year at LT. Conklin could immediately start at RT, plus he’s got the versatility to kick inside and play guard.
- Lions: LaQuon Treadwell WR Ole Miss
– I’m sticking to my guns here, because I think Treadwell is the best WR in the class. There’s been talk of him slipping down the board, which I understand due to the depth of the WR class, but baby Dez replacing Megatron makes a lot of sense.READ MORE: Day 2 Of The State Fair Of Texas Brings Visitors Fun, Football & Fried Food
- Falcons: Shaq Lawson DE Clemson
– If I was a betting man, he’d go earlier than this, but I’m not a betting man and I need to fit him in here. Probably the 2nd best overall DE in the draft, and you could make an argument that he’s the best.
- Colts: Taylor Decker OT Ohio State
– After a year of an injured Andrew Luck, Ryan Grigson finally gets it through his head that you have to address the o-line at some point.
- Bills: Jarran Reed DT Alabama
– You know Rex Ryan loves beefing up that D-line.
- Jets: Noah Spence EDGE Eastern Kentucky
– I think Spence should be in the Top 12-15 range, but I’m going with the reality that his past character issues could drop him into the 20s. If the Jets are okay with the person, they’re high-fiving in the draft room.
- Redskins: Josh Doctson WR TCU
– I’ve been calling for a run of WRs to start in the early 20s. Washington helps out Kirk Cousins as the run of WRs begins.
- Texans: Corey Coleman WR Baylor
– A really good compliment to DeAndre Hopkins and another target for new franchise QB Brock Osweiler.
- Vikings: Michael Thomas WR Ohio State
– Teddy Bridgewater gets a new toy, as the Vikings look to be more dynamic offensively.
- Bengals: Will Fuller WR Notre Dame
– While I’m a fan of Fuller late in the 2nd round, there’s been a lot of smoke around him as a guy who will go in the first round, so I’m putting him here, ending a run of four straight WRs taken.
- Steelers: Eli Apple CB Ohio State
– I’m not as high on Apple as most, because he’s so grabby and undisciplined down the field, but he has all the makings of a first round player. A good franchise like the Steelers won’t be so short sighted to pass on a potential long term lock down corner.
- Seahawks: Jason Spriggs OT Indians
– For Seattle, I’m just looking at improving that O-line, and Spriggs is the next tackle on my board.
- Packers: Reggie Ragland LB Alabama
– It might be a little unrealistic for him to slide this far on draft day, given how safe of a pick this is. He’s got one of the highest floors in the draft. If GB really wants to move Clay Matthews back outside, this is the way to go.
- Chiefs: Mackenzie Alexander CB Clemson
– Taking a CB in the first round worked last year as Marcus Peters was the defensive rookie of the year. While he’s a little short for the position, he plays with a sense of swagger and confidence needed for the position.
- Cardinals: Myles Jack LB UCLA
– I have no idea how far Myles Jack will slide. I’ve heard negative and positive reports about his knee, but honestly more grim news than good. A good team like the Cardinals can take a chance on a guy like Jack, who’s longevity appears to be the only thing in question.
- Panthers: Emmanuel Ogbah DE Oklahoma State
– I’m lower on this kid than most, seeing him as more of a late 2nd, early 3rd type of player, but there’s been a lot of chatter of him making it to the first round.
- Broncos: Leonard Floyd OLB Georgia
– I think they’ll get a deal done with Von Miller, and I’m not comparing the two players, as Floyd looks more like a WR than a pass rusher, but Floyd has the burst and bend to become a very projectable pass rusher.
