Editor's note: This mock draft was published prior to the news that police are investigating Ohio State CB Gareon Conley after he was accused of rape by a woman earlier this month.

  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    Texas A&M
    There's been a lot of buzz about the possibility of the Browns taking Mitchell Trubisky, but I think Garrett ends up being the pick here.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    S
    LSU
    This pick is anyone's guess. I wouldn't be surprised if they took Leonard Fournette, but Adams is the cleanest player in the draft.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    CB
    Ohio St.
    The Bears could go in a number of different directions here, but they are desperate for an impact corner.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    This pick just makes too much sense. Fournette would be a tremendous help to Blake Bortles.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    DE
    Stanford
    I think the Titans will aggressively shop this pick, but Thomas would be a nice fall-back plan if they can't get out.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    TE
    Alabama
    Howard will give the Jets a much-needed weapon in the middle of the field.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    S
    Ohio St.
    Gus Bradley's defense was made for Malik Hooker.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    RB
    Stanford
    This buzz has been building for a while. McCaffrey will provide some easy completions for Cam Newton.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    LB
    Alabama
    Foster's diluted drug test doesn't seem to be a big issue with teams. Either that or they are lying to me. I'll guess the former is true.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    LB
    Temple
    Several teams are targeting Reddick. I'll be surprised if he gets out of the top 15.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    CB
    Alabama
    This is higher than I expected for Humphrey, but his size-speed combination is intriguing.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    QB
    North Carolina
    I expect the Browns to move up to make sure Trubisky doesn't get scooped by another team in the top 10.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    QB
    Texas Tech
    This would be a surprising pick, but I'm told the Cardinals love the upside of Mahomes.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    DE
    Tennessee
    The Eagles need a cornerback, but Barnett might be too tempting to pass up.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    OLB
    Missouri
    The Colts have a lot of needs on defense, but adding a big-time pass rusher is right at the top of the list.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    WR
    Clemson
    The Ravens haven't had much luck drafting wide receivers, but Williams has a tremendous resume.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    DE
    Alabama
    Allen could slide a little bit based on some medical concerns. He would be a steal at this point in the draft.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    WR
    Western Michigan
    The Titans need to give Marcus Mariota a playmaker; Davis qualifies.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    RB
    Florida St.
    The Bucs could take an offensive lineman here, but Cook would be dynamic in this offense.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    OT
    Wisconsin
    The Broncos need to upgrade their offensive line; Ramczyk will help them do that.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    LB
    Florida
    Davis could go much higher than this, but he would be a good fit in Detroit if he were to be available.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    OG
    Western Kentucky
    Laremy Tunsil kicks out to left tackle this season, which creates an opening at guard.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    TE
    Miami
    Njoku is a unique athlete who would be scary surrounded by the playmakers in New York.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Ohio St.
    We could see a run on cornerbacks around this point of the draft.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    OT
    Alabama
    Robinson would be an immediate upgrade at right tackle for the Texans.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    OT
    Utah
    The Seahawks could go with a cornerback here, but Bolles' athleticism would fit well in their scheme.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    QB
    Clemson
    There has been a lot of chatter about the Chiefs looking at a quarterback in the first round. I'm not sure if Watson is their top guy, but he fits what they do schematically.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    Some teams have Jackson as the second-best cornerback in the draft. He might be long gone by this point.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    OLB
    Wisconsin
    This one just makes too much sense. The Packers need another rusher and Watt is a stud.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    TE
    Mississippi
    This would be a mild surprise, but Engram is well-regarded around the league.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    CB
    Washington
    King has the size to match up with the bigger wide receivers in the division. The Falcons have a good group of cornerbacks, but you can never have enough cover guys.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    McKinley seems to be sliding, but he is a very talented edge rusher.
