PICK

1

Myles Garrett - DE, Texas A&M

The Browns can't go wrong taking the best player in the draft with the first pick.

PICK

2

Solomon Thomas - DL, Stanford

The 49ers don't need another big body in the middle, but Thomas is the top player on the board and gives them another disruptive defender to anchor an emerging defense.

PICK

3

Jamal Adams - S, LSU

The Bears need an enforcer in the middle to set the tone for the defense.

PICK

4

Leonard Fournette - RB, LSU

The Jaguars want to lean more on a run-centric attack to alleviate the pressure on Blake Bortles.

PICK

5

Marshon Lattimore - CB, Ohio State

A team can never have enough cover corners with size, speed, and athleticism.

PICK

6

Jonathan Allen - DE, Alabama

Mo Wilkerson's weight issues and Sheldon Richardson's behavioral problems could prompt the Jets to take a high-character defender like Allen.

PICK

7

Malik Hooker - S, Ohio State

The Chargers could use a true centerfielder in the middle of the defense with outstanding instincts and ball skills.

PICK

8

Derek Barnett - DE, Tennessee

The most polished pass rusher in the draft would enhance a pass rush that should improve with the return of Julius Peppers.

PICK

9

Reuben Foster - LB, Alabama

Foster is a menacing "Mike" linebacker with a nasty temperament and rugged game.

PICK

10

Mike Williams - WR, Clemson

The Bills have a WR1 in Watkins but they could use a "bully" on the edge to take advantage of smaller corners.

PICK

11

Tre'Davious White - CB, LSU

If the Saints aren't able to land Malcolm Butler, the LSU standout would be a perfect fallback as a potential CB1.

PICK

12

O.J. Howard - TE, Alabama

Nothing wrong with adding a big, athletic tight end with speed and quickness to the lineup.

PICK

13

Corey Davis - WR, Western Michigan

The Cardinals need an eventual successor for Larry Fitzgerald as the team's WR1.

PICK

14

Teez Tabor - CB, Florida

The Eagles need a long, rangy corner to thrive as a CB1 in Jim Schwartz's system.

PICK

15

Chidobe Awuzie - CB, Colorado

The Colts need a young, athletic corner to play opposite Vontae Davis.

PICK

16

John Ross - WR, Washington

An electric playmaker with speed to burn would be a welcome addition to an offense that wants to play long ball with Joe Flacco at quarterback.

PICK

17

Dalvin Cook - RB, Florida State

The ultra-explosive runner would alleviate pressure on Kirk Cousins in the Redskins' backfield.

PICK

18

Takkarist McKinley - LB, UCLA

Adding a pass rusher isn't necessarily a pressing need for the Titans, but McKinley would give them another high-motor rusher to add to the mix.

PICK

19

Jarrad Davis - LB, Florida

Davis is a hard-hitting linebacker with positional flexibility.

PICK

20

Garett Bolles - OT, Utah

Contrary to popular opinion, the Broncos' offensive line struggles prevented the team from making another run at the title.

PICK

21

Taco Charlton - DE, Michigan

Charlton is a solid edge defender with a rock-solid game at the point of attack.

PICK

22

Haason Reddick - LB, Temple

Reddick is an active linebacker with a non-stop motor and a versatile game.

PICK

23

Ryan Ramczyk - OT, Wisconsin

Giants add a rugged blocker who is capable of keeping Eli Manning upright in the pocket.

PICK

24

Cam Robinson - OT, Alabama

The Raiders need a corner but could opt to take a big, physical tackle to groom for a bigger role down the line.

PICK

25

Mitchell Trubisky - QB, North Carolina

If the Texans don't resolve their quarterback issues with a veteran free agent, the team could turn to the North Carolina standout as its QB of the future.

PICK

26

Fabian Moreau - CB, UCLA

Moreau is a fast-rising corner with a blue-collar game.

PICK

27

Deshaun Watson - QB, Clemson

Andy Reid has a knack for transforming athletic quarterbacks into efficient passers (see Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick).

PICK

28

Charles Harris - DE, Missouri

The Cowboys still need to find a legitimate pass rusher to feature off the edge. Harris is a blue-collar worker with a rugged game and non-stop motor that fits the Cowboys' profile.

PICK

29

Christian McCaffrey - RB, Stanford

Can you imagine how much fun Mike McCarthy would have creating big-play opportunities for McCaffrey as a runner, receiver and returner?

PICK

30

Tim Williams - LB, Alabama

The Steelers need a fastball pitcher off the edge. Williams has exceptional first-step quickness and body control.

PICK

31

T.J. Watt - LB, Wisconsin

Watt is a versatile edge rusher who would add another dimension to the Falcons' pass rush.

PICK

32

Adoree' Jackson - CB, USC

Jackson gives the Saints a two-way playmaker to add some sizzle to the lineup.
