Reuter 5-round mock draft: Surprise QB lands in Round 1

The Browns take the top player on the board.

Whether the Niners play him hand down or standing up, Thomas will affect plays.

Allen plugs into one of the Bears' five-technique spots.

T.J. Yeldon and Fournette should help take the load off of Blake Bortles.

Tennessee tightens up the secondary with the draft's most physical corner.

If Christian Hackenberg hasn't impressed Jets coaches, they'll bring in Trubisky to see if he's the guy.

Adams is a 10-year starter in Los Angeles.

Charles Johnson and Julius Peppers won't be around for too long.

Two-tight end formations are back in vogue with Howard in town.

This makes it two former Clemson receivers for Tyrod Taylor.

Barnett joins with Cameron Jordan to disrupt opposing backfields.

Watson is a clutch player with good physical traits; his arm will get stronger in time.

Davis learns from one of the best in 2017 and takes over Larry Fitzgerald's No. 1 spot in 2018.

Philly desperately needs help in the secondary.

Reddick will not escape the top 20 with his athleticism and toughness.

Baltimore finds a deep threat so Joe Flacco can unleash his cannon arm.

Hooker's range is unbelievable; only team needs push him down this far.

Marcus Mariota needs to get a big weapon with one of Tennessee's two first-round picks.

Peppers becomes a starter immediately for the Bucs.

John Elway keeps McCaffrey home as a star rusher/receiver/returner.

Willis' combine workout showed the type of explosiveness the Lions need across from Ziggy Ansah.

Ryan Tannehill and Jay Ajayi will appreciate Lamp's tenacity inside.

Ereck Flowers is obviously not the answer at left tackle; Ramcyzk will be.

Maybe New Orleans, Baltimore, or Tennessee pick Foster despite off-field concerns; but the Raiders would love this scenario.

Given Mahomes' skill set, it's tough to see him escaping the first round.

Long and athletic, King stays in Washington to play for the 'Hawks.

Cook's shoulder injuries might not prevent the Chiefs from selecting him as the replacement for Jamaal Charles.

Jones' stock is on the rise, and the Cowboys would love this enforcer in their secondary.

Watt could play inside or outside for the Packers, wreaking havoc for Dom Capers when he decides to blitz.

Charlton's agility would allow him to succeed outside for Pittsburgh.

The offensive line must be stout to keep the Falcons' offense explosive.

Doubling down on defense makes sense given the Saints' unit ranked 27th in yards allowed last season.
