Davis mock draft 2.0: Titans make Jalen Ramsey top pick

Print

PICK

1

Jalen Ramsey - DB, Florida State: The overwhelming philosophy is to protect QB Marcus Mariota at all costs, but Ramsey's so gifted that taking him -- and giving defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau another playmaker to help stop the talented WRs in Houston, Indy, and Jacksonville -- will be considered by new GM Jon Robinson.

PICK

2

Carson Wentz - QB, North Dakota State: New decision maker Sashi Brown, and new head coach Hue Jackson agree to start their era with this talented passer.

PICK

3

Laremy Tunsil - OT, Ole Miss: It will be an upset if he's not off the board No. 1 to Tennessee, but San Diego will eagerly take him to anchor an OL that needs to get better fast.

RANK

4

COWBOYS

Ezekiel Elliot - RB, Ohio State: The Cowboys went to the playoffs in 2014 on the legs of DeMarco Murray. Elliott allows them to recreate that formula, and play to the strength of their OL.

PICK

5

Myles Jack - LB, UCLA: Extremely talented. The Jags will find ways to put him in playmaking spots all over their defense.

PICK

6

Joey Bosa - DE, Ohio State: The Ravens will use him to help anchor their DL. He's able to rush the passer from the edge and inside in sub or nickel packages.

PICK

7

DeForest Buckner - DL, Oregon: The Niners will pair him with last year's first-round pick, Arik Armstead, and give themselves formidable, young bookend DEs. QB will be a strong consideration here.

PICK

8

Vernon Hargreaves - CB, Florida: New head coach Adam Gase will give the offense his full attention, and new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph gets a corner who will benefit from Miami's strong defensive front.

PICK

9

Kevin Dodd - DE, Clemson: The Bucs need to add edge pressure, and they hope that his best football is ahead of him, similar to Detroit's Ziggy Ansah.

PICK

10

Shaq Lawson - DE/OLB, Clemson: The Giants need defensive help, and they play to their identity when they have great pass rushers.

PICK

11

Ronnie Stanley - OT, Notre Dame: Kyle Long has RT locked down. Now he gets a running mate that should hold down the LT spot for the next decade.

PICK

12

Jarran Reed - DT, Alabama: One of the worst defenses in the NFL in 2015 needs help all over. The best run-stopping DT in the draft is a good player to begin the rebuilding process.

PICK

13

Corey Coleman - WR, Baylor: After drafting Nelson Agholor in the first round last year, Coleman's selection adds to the speed that is needed on the perimeter for the Eagles.

PICK

14

A'Shawn Robinson - DT, Alabama: Last year's first-round selection from Alabama ( Amari Cooper) worked out quite nicely for Oakland. Robinson's presence inside only helps LB Khalil Mack get that much better. A CB will be in play here, too.

PICK

15

Jared Goff - QB, Cal: In a bit of a surprise, this QB is still available. Of no surprise, the Rams race to the podium to select him to start their latest tenure in L.A.

PICK

16

Taylor Decker - OT, Ohio State: This pick will allow starting LT Riley Reiff to move to RT.

PICK

17

Reggie Ragland - LB, Alabama: The Falcons have been seeking a stable MLB since Curtis Lofton departed. Ragland believes he can be a three-down player, and so do the Falcons.

PICK

18

Jack Conklin - OT, Michigan State: Colts QB Andrew Luck took too many hits last season, and Conklin will help reduce that number. He offers some "nasty" to aid the running game, too.

PICK

19

Sheldon Rankins - DT, Louisville: Will be put to use in various ways and from various looks by head coach Rex Ryan as the Bills continue to chase Tom Brady and the Patriots.

PICK

20

Darron Lee - OLB, Ohio State: Adding more speed on the edge will benefit head coach Todd Bowles' defense. Lee can run, tackle, cover and rush the passer.

PICK

21

Leonard Floyd - OLB, Georgia: Can be dynamic off the edge, and Washington needs help on all three levels on defense.

PICK

22

Paxton Lynch - QB, Memphis QB is the spot that the Texans must fix and solidify.

PICK

23

Josh Doctson - WR, TCU: The Vikings must get more dynamic through the air, and the selection of Doctson adds another young target to aid QB Teddy Bridgewater's development.

PICK

24

Laquon Treadwell - WR, Ole Miss: The Bengals might lose two valuable WRs in Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones in free agency. Need and talent mesh with this pick.

PICK

25

Eli Apple - CB, Ohio State: Many scouts told me prior to the combine that "If Apple runs fast, he's a first-rounder." He did, and he is.

PICK

26

Derrick Henry - RB, Alabama: Marshawn Lynch retired, and RB Thomas Rawls is coming off of a broken ankle. Seattle is at its best when it's able to run the ball with authority.

PICK

27

Andrew Billings - DT, Baylor: Showed impressive athleticism at the combine to pair with his known freakish strength. He's exactly what the Packers are seeking for the middle of their defense.

PICK

28

Will Fuller - WR, Notre Dame: Kansas City wants to pump up the speed on the perimeter, and Fuller can flat out fly.

PICK

29

Robert Nkemdiche - DT, Ole Miss: Off-field concerns, and some inconsistent play, drop this top-10-type player, but this organization does not shy away from talent.

PICK

30

Vonn Bell - S, Ohio State: The Panthers have needs on offense, but they must get younger, and faster, at safety. Bell fits the bill.

PICK

31

Germain Ifedi - OT, Texas A&M: They might want to play him inside at guard, but no matter what, he fills a need for the Super Bowl champs. Would not be surprised to see a TE considered here, too.
