1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston (QB) Florida State
It makes sense with his on the field talent and what would fit as their “Face of the Franchise” quarterback for the future.
2) Tennessee Titans
Marcus Mariota (QB) Oregon
No one truly knows what is happening here with this pick. Will the Titans trade down? Will they keep the pick and draft Mariota? Draft Leonard Williams? I think Mariota gets drafted here at #2 by somebody.
3) Jacksonville Jaguars
Dante Fowler Jr. (DE/OLB) Florida
A pure “edge” player with versatility that coach Bradley will fall in love with to help transcend his defense to the next level. Amari Cooper here might be too much after drafting Lee & Robinson last year in the 2nd round, you need to let them develop and take another mid-round wide receiver to add to the corps.
4) Oakland Raiders
Amari Cooper (WR) Alabama
A fit based on his versatility to play inside and out and help Carr develop. A “safe” player with pure talent who makes everything look easy.
5) Washington Redskins
Leonard Williams (DL) USC
Take best available player, and couldn’t be happier with arguably the best player in the draft falling to them at #5.
6) New York Jets
Vic Beasley (DE/OLB) Clemson
Beasley is a pure pass-rusher that will immediately help their defense. Best player available that will make an instant impact from Day 1.
7) Chicago Bears
Kevin White (WR) West Virginia
Will fit very nicely across from Jeffery, and if Jeffery leaves after this season in free agency he’ll move into the No. 1 role.
8) Atlanta Falcons
Bud Dupree (DE/OLB) Kentucky
A perfect scheme fit that Quinn wants to accomplish in his pass-rush, extreme athleticism that the Falcons will fall in love with.
9) New York Giants
Brandon Scherff (OL) Iowa
This is great fit at guard or tackle on the right side to pair with Pugh to create a better offensive line situation than last season.
*** Trade: St. Louis Rams trade their #10 pick to Miami Dolphins for pick #14 and additional picks***
10) Miami Dolphins (from Rams)
Devante Parker (WR) Louisville
This would create quite a wide receiver group of tall possession receivers. Parker, deep-threat Stills, and Jarvis Landry as the playmaker in the middle.
11) Minnesota Vikings
Trae Waynes (CB) Michigan St.
Adding another piece to the defensive puzzle with man-to-man corner Waynes.
12) Cleveland Browns
Danny Shelton (NT) Washington
To help with their pure run defense from last season, Shelton is a stellar nose tackle.
13) New Orleans Saints
La’El Collins (OL) LSU
A mauler to replace Grubbs and help the run game that could play guard, or even tackle.
14) St. Louis Rams (From Dolphins)
Ereck Flowers (OL) Miami
A physical presence at right tackle that would immediately help the run game and what Fisher envisions the offense looking like.
15) San Francisco 49ers
Arik Armstead (DL) Oregon
A great fit as 3-4 edge setter on the defensive line with a high ceiling.
*** Trade: Houston Texans trade pick #16 to Arizona Cardinals for pick #24 and additional picks***
16) Arizona Cardinals (from Texans)
Todd Gurley (RB) Georgia
They need a true #1 back that will take this offense to the next level and open up more possibilities.
17) San Diego Chargers
Melvin Gordon (RB) Wisconsin
They want to add more running game to their overall offense and grab a premier running back here.
18) Kansas City Chiefs
T.J. Clemmings (OL) Pittsburgh
Athletic offensive lineman that Reid prefers and can play guard or right tackle, but more likely right tackle to have a bookend match with Fisher to solidify line.
19) Cleveland Browns
Breshard Perriman (WR) UCF
Perriman is a player that can become a true #1 weapon for Browns organization and will make immediate impact as deep threat.
20) Philadelphia Eagles
Byron Jones (CB) UCONN
For the record, I almost slotted Brett Hundley here, just so you know how unpredictable Chip Kelly is on draft weekend. Jones’ athleticism and versatility could be too much for Chip to pass on.
21) Cincinnati Bengals
Andrus Peat (OL) Stanford
Whitworth and Andre Smith are free agents after the season, they could move Whitworth to guard to pair with Zietler or Boling.
22) Pittsburgh Steelers
Landon Collins (SS) Alabama
Take best available player on the board in their eyes and will fill the hole in their secondary as an instinctive playmaker.
23) Detroit Lions
Malcolm Brown (DT) Texas
Dream scenario for the Lions, a perfect scheme fit for the defensive front in Detroit.
24) Houston Texans (From Cardinals)
Nelson Agholor (WR) USC
Bill O’Brien will recreate the offense of New England by adding a great slot receiver in the middle of the field with great hands and playmaking ability.
25) Carolina Panthers
D.J. Humpries (OL) Florida
It’s time they start treating Newton like a franchise quarterback by protecting him like one.
26) Baltimore Ravens
Marcus Peters (CB) Washington
More likely they trade out of this pick, but Peters would be a strong addition to the secondary. Even though Devin Smith is an ideal match for them at WR.
27) Dallas Cowboys
Eddie Goldman (DL) Florida State
A run stuffer that the Cowboys badly need on the defensive line.
28) Denver Broncos
Jake Fisher (OT) Oregon
A perfect fit for the zone-blocking scheme that Kubiak is bringing to Denver, can line up anywhere on the line.
29) Indianapolis Colts
Eric Rowe (DB) Utah
Versatile, can play corner or safety to help the secondary of the Colts right away.
30) Green Bay Packers
Kevin Johnson (CB) Wake Forest
A great addition to what the Packers want to accomplish in their secondary with a player that is the ideal fit for their type of cornerback.
31) New Orleans Saints
Preston Smith (DE) Mississippi St.
An underrated player with great athletic ability coming off the edge.
32) New England Patriots
Dorial Green-Beckham (WR) Missouri
I think they trade out this pick, so I select a player with huge upside that would be a great outside threat
