Chad Reuter 2017 seven-round NFL mock draft: Round 1

There's a possibility Mitchell Trubisky gets the call here, but some in the building want to select the pass rusher from Texas A&M first and a quarterback later.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan would enjoy coaching the North Carolina QB, but don't be surprised if some team ( Jets? Browns?) explores a move up in a trade at this spot.

Adams and Quentin Demps give the Bears a nice one-two punch at safety.

Blake Bortles needs a running game to take the pressure off; the LSU runner is the perfect answer.

The value this Stanford pass rusher provides is too great for the Titans to pass up.

The demise of Darrelle Revis leaves a big hole in the Jets' secondary; the Ohio State corner fills it nicely.

The ultimate center-fielder, San Diego gets a playmaker from Ohio State in the back half.

An ultra-versatile offensive threat at Stanford, McCaffrey can help Cam Newton's cause.

Cincinnati pairs Tyler Eifert, who is a free agent after next season, with the Alabama tight end to cause major problems for opposing defenses.

With Gareon Conley's legal issues causing his draft stock to teeter, Humphrey could become the beneficiary.

Finding a pass rusher is a major priority for the Saints, and the Tennessee defender's relentless nature should endear him to the fans in New Orleans.

If Browns move up to get a quarterback, team that slides down to this spot will take a look at Allen, whose arthritic shoulders could cause his stock to drop.

Larry Fitzgerald is soon to retire, leaving Williams as the go-to target for the Cardinals.

Philly gets a big playmaker fro Western Michigan for Carson Wentz.

The Colts bolster their defense with Reddick, who can do it all.

If Buffalo takes this physically dominant tackle from Alabama at 10, then Ozzie Newsome will find another bargain here.

If the Redskins don't believe Kirk Cousins will stay, they could take Mahomes for 2018. Otherwise, a team will move into this area of the first round to select the promising passer.

Despite Ross' injury history, his ability to stretch defenses will help Marcus Mariota.

Cook and the Buccaneers seem like a nice fit, and it reunites Jameis Winston with his former Florida State teammate.

There's a new left tackle from Wisconsin in the not-so-sleepy Western town.

Questions about Foster's maturity and shoulder could cause the Alabama linebacker to drop down boards. Detroit should be willing to take a chance on his talent at this spot.

The Dolphins are moving last year's first-rounder, Laremy Tunsil, to left tackle, making room for the Western Kentucky swing-man at guard.

The Miami tight end's promise as a playmaker on offense makes Eli Manning smile.

It's tough not to picture Nnamdi Asomugha when watching the cornerback from Colorado.

Houston's secondary gets a smart, hard-hitting safety from North Carolina State.

Seattle takes a chance on the Michigan State defender's talent and scheme versatility.

Alex Smith has a significant cap hit in 2018, and is a free agent the following spring. The Clemson QB should be able to take control of the offense after a year or two.

The Florida corner has the height, length and agility to start for the Cowboys on Day 1.

Green Bay will have a tough choice between Watt and Jabrill Peppers. The Wisconsin pass rusher might win out if the Packers think they can mine secondary talent later in a deep draft.

Pittsburgh's linebacker situation is getting a bit thin, and McKinley's length, toughness, and athleticism fit well.

The second half of the Super Bowl showed the Falcons' need for a strong, consistent pass rusher like this K-State defensive end.

This Florida Gator brings athleticism and toughness to the middle of the Saints' defense.
