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.

PICK

1

Myles Garrett - DE

School: 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.

PICK

2

Jamal Adams - S

School: 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.

PICK

3

Marshon Lattimore - CB

School: Ohio State. The Bears could go in a number of different directions here, but they are desperate for an impact corner.

PICK

4

Leonard Fournette - RB

School: LSU. This pick just makes too much sense. Fournette would be a tremendous help to Blake Bortles.

PICK

5

Solomon Thomas - DL

School: 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.

PICK

6

O.J. Howard - TE

School: Alabama. Howard will give the Jets a much-needed weapon in the middle of the field.

PICK

7

Malik Hooker - S

School: Ohio State. Gus Bradley's defense was made for Malik Hooker.

PICK

8

Christian McCaffrey - RB

School: Stanford. This buzz has been building for a while. McCaffrey will provide some easy completions for Cam Newton.

PICK

9

Reuben Foster - LB

School: 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.

PICK

10

Haason Reddick - OLB

School: Temple. Several teams are targeting Reddick. I'll be surprised if he gets out of the top 15.

PICK

11

Marlon Humphrey - CB

School: Alabama. This is higher than I expected for Humphrey, but his size-speed combination is intriguing.

PICK

12

Mitchell Trubisky - QB

School: North Carolina. I expect the Browns to move up to make sure Trubisky doesn't get scooped by another team in the top 10.

PICK

13

Patrick Mahomes - QB

School: Texas Tech. This would be a surprising pick, but I'm told the Cardinals love the upside of Mahomes.

PICK

14

Derek Barnett - DE

School: Tennessee. The Eagles need a cornerback, but Barnett might be too tempting to pass up.

PICK

15

Charles Harris - DE

School: 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.

PICK

16

Mike Williams - WR

School: Clemson. The Ravens haven't had much luck drafting wide receivers, but Williams has a tremendous resume.

PICK

17

Jonathan Allen - DL

School: Alabama. Allen could slide a little bit based on some medical concerns. He would be a steal at this point in the draft.

PICK

18

Corey Davis - WR

School: Western Michigan. The Titans need to give Marcus Mariota a playmaker; Davis qualifies.

PICK

19

Dalvin Cook - RB

School: Florida State. The Bucs could take an offensive lineman here, but Cook would be dynamic in this offense.

PICK

20

Ryan Ramczyk - OT

School: Wisconsin. The Broncos need to upgrade their offensive line; Ramczyk will help them do that.

PICK

21

Jarrad Davis - LB

School: Florida. Davis could go much higher than this, but he would be a good fit in Detroit if he were to be available.

PICK

22

Forrest Lamp - OG

School: Western Kentucky. Laremy Tunsil kicks out to left tackle this season, which creates an opening at guard.

PICK

23

David Njoku - TE

School: Miami. Njoku is a unique athlete who would be scary surrounded by the playmakers in New York.

PICK

24

Gareon Conley - CB

School: Ohio State. We could see a run on cornerbacks around this point of the draft.

PICK

25

Cam Robinson - OT

School: Alabama. Robinson would be an immediate upgrade at right tackle for the Texans.

PICK

26

Garett Bolles - OT

School: Utah. The Seahawks could go with a cornerback here, but Bolles' athleticism would fit well in their scheme.

PICK

27

Deshaun Watson - QB

School: 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.

PICK

28

Adoree' Jackson - CB

School: USC. Some teams have Jackson as the second-best cornerback in the draft. He might be long gone by this point.

PICK

29

T.J. Watt - OLB

School: Wisconsin. This one just makes too much sense. The Packers need another rusher and Watt is a stud.

PICK

30

Evan Engram - TE

School: Ole Miss. This would be a mild surprise, but Engram is well-regarded around the league.

PICK

31

Kevin King - CB

School: 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.

PICK

32

Takkarist McKinley - DE

School: UCLA. McKinley seems to be sliding, but he is a very talented edge rusher.
