Jeremiah mock draft 2.0: Bills, Giants grab QBs in Round 1

Print

A lot has transpired since my last mock draft. We've had two college all-star games and a few notable injuries. I've also had a chance to view a lot more tape. Here's Take 2, a month out from the start of the NFL Scouting Combine, where we'll learn a lot more about these players.

Note: The Vikings, who traded their first-round pick to the Eagles, have the same record and strength of schedule as the Colts, so there's a tie for the 14th pick. A coin flip at a later date will determine which team picks first.

» Other mock drafts: Bucky Brooks 1.0 | Lance Zierlein 1.0 | Chad Reuter 1.0

RANK

1

BROWNS

Myles Garrett - DE, Texas A&M: The Browns need an instant-impact defender and Garrett is the obvious choice.

RANK

2

49ERS

Marshon Lattimore - CB, Ohio State: The 49ers could address the QB position with this pick but Lattimore carries a much higher grade than any of the signal-callers in this draft class.

RANK

3

BEARS

Jonathan Allen - DT, Alabama: Allen is a high-impact player and would add to a talented front seven in Chicago.

RANK

4

JAGUARS

Jamal Adams - S, LSU: Adams has an ideal blend of physical tools and off-the-charts intangibles.

RANK

5

TITANS

Reuben Foster - LB, Alabama: Foster is an explosive, playmaking linebacker who would be a perfect fit in the Titans' system.

RANK

6

JETS

Leonard Fournette - RB, LSU: I know the Jets have other needs, but Fournette would be a very tempting option to consider.

RANK

7

CHARGERS

Malik Hooker - S, Ohio State: This would fill a major need for the Chargers; Hooker would be ultra-productive roaming behind a gifted collection of pass rushers.

RANK

8

PANTHERS

Solomon Thomas - DE, Stanford: Thomas has the versatility to move up and down the line, and the Panthers need to upgrade their pass rush.

RANK

9

BENGALS

Mike Williams - WR, Clemson: Williams would be a matchup nightmare playing on the opposite side of A.J. Green.

RANK

10

BILLS

Deshaun Watson - QB, Clemson: I feel confident the Bills will add a quarterback early in the draft, but I don't have a great feel yet for which player they prefer at the position.

RANK

11

SAINTS

Quincy Wilson - CB, Florida: Wilson is a big, physical cornerback with excellent ball skills.

RANK

12

BROWNS

O.J. Howard - TE, Alabama: Howard would team up with Gary Barnidge to give the Browns a potent 1-2 punch at tight end.

RANK

13

CARDINALS

Corey Davis - WR, Western Michigan: Davis is a complete wide receiver who is ready to play Day 1.

RANK

14

COLTS

Dalvin Cook - RB, Florida State: The Colts need an explosive running back; Cook would be a perfect fit with Andrew Luck.

RANK

14

EAGLES

Sidney Jones - CB, Washington: The Eagles are desperate for cornerback help; Jones is very polished and consistent on tape.

RANK

16

RAVENS

Taco Charlton - DE, Michigan: In this scenario, Charlton would continue to make plays for a Harbaugh brother.

RANK

17

REDSKINS

Forrest Lamp - OG, Western Kentucky: Lamp could play either guard or center for the Redskins.

RANK

18

TITANS

John Ross - WR, Washington: The Titans need to provide more playmakers for Marcus Mariota; Ross has elite speed.

RANK

19

BUCCANEERS

Alvin Kamara - RB, Tennessee: The Bucs can't rely on Doug Martin any longer; Kamara is a three-down back who would fit perfectly in this offense.

RANK

20

BRONCOS

Ryan Ramczyk - OT, Wisconsin The Broncos must address the offensive line; many consider Ramczyk the top tackle in this draft.

RANK

21

LIONS

David Njoku - TE, Miami: GM Bob Quinn appreciates the benefits of having two athletic tight ends after spending so many years in New England.

RANK

22

DOLPHINS

Derek Barnett - DE, Tennessee: Barnett won't test very well, but he is extremely productive and plays with a relentless motor.

RANK

23

GIANTS

Mitch Trubisky - QB, North Carolina: The Giants need to start thinking about Eli Manning's eventual replacement.

RANK

24

RAIDERS

Tre'Davious White - CB, LSU: One of the cleanest players in this draft, White can play outside or in the nickel.

RANK

25

TEXANS

Garett Bolles - OT, Utah: Bolles is very athletically gifted and can play tackle or guard at the next level.

RANK

26

SEAHAWKS

Marlon Humphrey - CB, Alabama: Humphrey has the ideal size and length to excel in the Seahawks' scheme.

RANK

27

CHIEFS

Budda Baker - S, Washington: Eric Berry is due to become a free agent, and Baker has a similar skill set.

RANK

28

COWBOYS

Charles Harris - DE, Missouri: The Cowboys need help on third down; Harris is a very skilled pass rusher.

RANK

29

PACKERS

T.J. Watt - OLB, Wisconsin: The Wisconsin native doesn't have to travel far. He would provide some punch to the Packers' pass rush.

RANK

30

STEELERS

Haason Reddick - OLB, Temple: Some guys just play like a Steeler -- Reddick is one of those guys.

RANK

31

FALCONS

Takkarist McKinley - DE, UCLA: McKinley would team up with Vic Beasley to give the Falcons two fastballs coming off the edge.

RANK

32

PATRIOTS

Jabrill Peppers - S, Michigan: Nobody appreciates versatility quite like the New England Patriots.
