|1||Jared Goff - QB - Cal|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Goff may not have as high of a ceiling as Wentz, but he is more ready to step in and lead a team with nothing at the QB position.
|2||Carson Wentz - QB - North Dakota State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Wentz has a lot of upside, but will benefit from not being pressed into action immediately as he acclimates to the NFL game. The Eagles gave up a lot for a risky prospect but could be a franchise QB if developed.
|3||Laremy Tunsil - OT - Ole Miss|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
While Ramsey would be tempting, Rivers is in the twilight of his career and the Chargers would benefit in keeping him upright. Tunsil is arguably the best prospect in the draft and could be an All-Pro level left tackle.
|4||Joey Bosa - EDGE - Ohio State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Cowboys have to upgrade their secondary, but they also need to stabilize their pass rushers. Hardy is gone, and two of the rushers will be suspended for 4 games to start the season. Bosa isn't explosive, but should get around 10 sacks a season while being strong enough to defend the run.
|5||Jalen Ramsey - CB - Florida State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Jags take the top prospect on the board. Ramsey would be a decent corner, but would thrive in the safety spot due to his sheer athleticism.
|6||Vernon Hargreaves III - CB - Florida|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Baltimore may consider Buckner or a tackle, but I think they would like to upgrade their secondary which hasn't been very good for the past few years. Hargreaves isn't the larger size that the league is trending towards, but is a physical corner and would help shore up some of the secondary issues.
|7||DeForest Buckner - DL - Oregon|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Buckner is one of the last elite-level prospects arguably on the board. I wouldn't be shocked in San Francisco nabbed Paxton Lynch here, but Kelly gets his former Oregon Duck, who would be a tremendous asset to a decimated defensive line.
|8||Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Ohio State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
TRADE! Cleveland hasn't made it a secret that want to get more picks (and reportedly control the 2017 draft). I think either Miami or Tennessee will try to trade up for Zeke, by far the best RB prospect in the draft and a home-run hitter. Tennessee has extra ammo due to their trade with LA, so they are able to offer more. Cleveland could consider taking Zeke, but I think Buckner is the only player they'd really want at 8 and he'll probably be off the board.
|9||Shaq Lawson - EDGE - Clemson|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Tampa Bay needs to focus on getting its defense up to par, including adding more pass rush. Shaq Lawson is strong and explosive and would be a solid defensive pick without reaching.
|10||Ronnie Stanley - OT - Notre Dame|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Giants will most likely look to bolster their lines, and Stanley would certainly be a strong addition to an offensive line that has to protect Eli in his final years.
|11||Sheldon Rankins - DL - Louisville|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Bears will most likely take a defensive player with no red flags, so I have them selecting Rankins, the highest rated defensive player on the board who would help Chicago continue to upgrade their line play.
|12||Myles Jack - LB - UCLA|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Jack is an elite talent and could go in the top 5 if a team feels comfortable about his knee. There has been talk he could slide out of the top 10 due to medical concerns, but he could be a steal here and the Saints have to upgrade their LB corps.
|13||Noah Spence - EDGE - Eastern Kentucky|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
A lot of people have Spence much lower due to his off-field issues; however, he's arguably the best pass rusher in the draft and I Miami will most likely grab the best defensive player on the board; I don't think they'll be as concerned about Spence as other teams.
|14||Paxton Lynch - QB - Memphis|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
TRADE! The Browns reportedly like Lynch and could take him as high as 8. The Jets are a team without a QB (right now) and even if they re-sign Fitzpatrick, they need a future QB to groom. It's unlikely that Lynch would survive to their pick at 20, so the Jets trade up with Oakland to ensure they get their QB of the future. Lynch has outstanding measurables, but needs a lot of development before he'll be a viable starting QB.
|15||Jack Conklin - OT - Michigan State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
There is talk that Conklin could go in the top 10 before Stanley. I think the mid-teens is probably a more appropriate spot. Cleveland will look to boost their terrible roster by replacing their RT with Conklin, who can help stabilize the right side of that OL.
|16||Laquon Treadwell - WR - Ole Miss|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
After the retirement of Megatron, the Lions biggest need became another threat at WR. Treadwell isn't Megatron, but he's the best WR in this class and would help soften the blow.
|17||Darron Lee - LB - Ohio State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Atlanta has shown strong interest in Lee, who is an quick athlete that could provide pass rush while also doing a decent job of dropping in coverage.
|18||Taylor Decker - OT - Ohio State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Colts will look strongly at getting a DT, but the class is deep at that position, so they'll probably grab the best OL, which I believe to be Decker. Decker would be an ideal RT, but could kick inside to guard or play LT in a pinch.
|19||Robert Nkemdiche - DL - Ole Miss|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Nkemdiche has great athleticism for his size, but there are large concerns about his character. Rex Ryan has shown in the past that he doesn't care about red flags and will probably gamble that he could turn Nkemdiche into a steal, though he could also turn out to be a bust. It wouldn't be shocking if Nkemdiche fell out of the first round altogether.
|20||Mackensie Alexander - CB - Clemson|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Oakland adds picks while grabbing a player they likely would've nabbed at 14. Oakland needs to improve their secondary and Alexander (who I think is better despite some of his statistics) would give them a solid option at corner.
|21||Andrew Billings - DL - Baylor|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
With the signing of Josh Norman, Washington can focus on beefing up their interior defensive line with a monstrous NT in Billings.
|22||Will Fuller - WR - Notre Dame|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
I am not as high on Fuller as many others, but he does have the speed to be a deep threat complement to Hopkins, which I feel will see him overdrafted to the Texans.
|23||Josh Doctson - WR - TCU|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Vikings got a steal in Diggs, who dropped due to medical concerns. They give Bridgewater another weapon in Doctson, who will be a red zone nightmare for opposing defenses to cover.
|24||Corey Coleman - WR - Baylor|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Bengals need to replace Jones and Sanu, who both left in free agency. Coleman could develop into a solid #2 receiver to take pressure off AJ Green.
|25||Eli Apple - CB - Ohio State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Pittsburgh has needed to upgrade their secondary for years. They finally do so in taking Apple, who needs to develop, but has all of the physical tools to be a great corner.
|26||Kevin Dodd - EDGE - Clemson|
|27||Jarran Reed - DL - Alabama|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
The Packers grab Reed, who could certainly go much higher, to offset the loss of Raji and provide some beef to their interior line.
|28||Cody Whitehair - OT - Kansas State|
|29||Ryan Kelly - C - Alabama|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Arizona, like KC, will probably take the highest rated OL on the board. Ryan Kelly would be a major upgrade at their center position.
|30||William Jackson III - CB - Houston|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
After losing Josh Norman to Washington, the Panthers grab Jackson to offset the loss; even had Norman stayed, I still expected Carolina to address the secondary early in this draft.
|31||Christian Hackenberg - QB - Penn State|Latest Video Show Pick Analysis
Denver can't realistically believe that Mark Sanchez will lead them back to another Super Bowl. I'm not high on Connor Cook at all (I have him as a third rounder in a weak QB class) and I think Denver will like Hackenberg better and believe him to be more apt to development while this team is still in their Super Bowl window.
