Mark Sciubba's 2017 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds
Round 1 Picks 1-16
Mark Sciubba's third 2017 NFL Mock Draft is up. This one is seven rounds!
Mark Sciubba follow @MarkSciubbaDoe Last Updated: April 10, 2017.
Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett, EDGE, Texas A&M
- Cleveland you got one. Garret is an absolute monster and will make QBs in the AFC North as miserable as they've made you guys the past decade. Garrett is a generational talent and too good to pass up on at one. No QB in the class has a first round grade on my board anyway.
- Other Cleveland Browns Selections
San Francisco 49ers: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
- Carlos Hyde is a great player when healthy. He's been plagued by injury and when he goes down it seems like 49ers offense just completely shuts down. With new offensive HC Kyle Shannahan that shouldn't happen anymore and grabbing a special talent like Fournette will be perfect to start the new era in the bay.
Previous Pick: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
- Other San Francisco 49ers Selections
Chicago Bears: Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
- Myles Garrett is the best player in this class but Jonathan Allen is damn close. In fact if a team runs a 3-4 then Allen might even be better than Garrett. Allen is the ultimate Alabama player of this Nick Saban era. Other than the Saints, The Bears have one of the worst defenses in the league. They have some nice young pieces on that side of the ball and Allen can be the glue and leader to get the Chicago defense in playoff contender form.
- The Bears will have to be smart and fight off the urge to take a QB here. Getting a guy like Allen and waiting a year for the loaded 2018 QB class is the best move for the franchise.
- Other Chicago Bears Selections
Jacksonville Jaguars: Jamal Adams, S, LSU
- Jamal Adams is another one of the multiple blue chip prospects in this class. Pairing him up with Jalen Ramsey and the front 7 they've built there in Jacksonville and their defense just needs time to come together before they start winning games based off their dominance. If he slips to here I can see the Jaguars taking Leonard Fournette but in this scenario Adams is the pick.
Previous Pick: Derek Barnett, EDGE, Tennesse
- Other Jacksonville Jaguars Selections
Tennessee Titans: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
- It seems that Marshon Lattimore has cemented himself as the top CB in this class to many teams. With the CB class looking not as deep as once thought with Sidney Jones ACL tear and Teez Tabor's poor 40 time (the two corners with the best tape in my opinion) the Titans get their corner here at 5 and look for weapons for Mariota later.
Previous Pick: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
- Other Tennessee Titans Selections
New York Jets: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
- To say the New York Jets GM has done a poor job lately would be an understatement. He's a lot better than people give him for but he built a win now roster who couldn't even make the playoffs and now the franchise is back to rebuild with nothing to show for it. I think it would be a King Kong sized mistake for any team to take a QB in the first round this year, but the Jets GM and coach need to swing for the fences to save their jobs. A rookie QB who does well enough and shows promise to be their franchise QB could be the thing that saves them.
Previous Pick: Jamal Adams, S, LSU
- Other New York Jets Selections
Los Angeles Chargers: Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford
- The Chargers need to capitalize on the home run of a player that have in Joey Bosa and get him some help. Thomas is a true defensive chess piece and will give the Los Angeles Chargers the youngest and maybe one day the most dominant pass rush tandems in the NFL. There's plenty of starting safeties they can get in round 2 but they need get Bosa his tag team partner early.
Previous Pick: Tim Williams, EDGE, Alabama
- Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections
Carolina Panthers: Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State
- Malik Hooker has one of the highest ceiling's of any player in this class while already being damn good. The Panthers need all the help they can get in the secondary if they want to compete. The best way to mask having young corners who aren't good yet is to get a ball hawking Safety behind them. I know everyone and their moms wants to see a backfield with Fournette and Cam Newton but he's off the board in this mock.
Previous Pick: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
- Other Carolina Panthers Selections
Cincinnati Bengals: Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
- Despite the past season the Bengals roster is way better than one may think. It's greatly constructed with no glaring weakness freeing up the Bengals to take the best player available on their board. Reuben Foster can be an instant starter and make plays for the Bengals defense day one. As most Alabama defensive players are Foster is extremely NFL ready and they don't have much time left to get Marvin Lewis the playoff win he deserves.
- Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections
Buffalo Bills: Mike Williams, WR Clemson
- My favorite team, the Buffalo Bills, are on of the hardest teams to get a read on in this draft. From a fan perspective, I think they will take a wide receiver if the two top safety prospects are off the board. With a good 40 time at his pro day, Mike Williams can cemented himself in the top 15 of the draft. Adding a new receiver or two is a must for the Bills in this draft. Williams seems like the type of player GM Doug Whaley likes.
Previous Pick: Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
- Other Buffalo Bills Selections
New Orleans Saints: Taco Charlton, EDGE, Michigan
- Another year, another mock draft saying that the saints need defensive help terribly. Charlton has been getting top 10 buzz and it's easy to see why.
- He's physically the complete package. I don't know if I'd trust the Saints coaching staff to coach up a guy like him who hasn't reached his full potential yet at this point, so maybe they'll opt for a more complete and ready player like Derek Barnett of Tennessee here.
Previous Pick: DeMarcus Walker, EDGE, Florida State
- Other New Orleans Saints Selections
Cleveland Browns: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
- Cleveland you got another one. Howard is the best tight end prospect in a long time. He can be as dominant In the pass game as the run game and a game changing tight end could be exactly what sets the Browns offense into motion. He was severely underused at Alabama. Howard is the exact type of player Browns need to target if they want to change the culture of their franchise.
Previous Pick: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
- Other Cleveland Browns Selections
Arizona Cardinals: John Ross, WR, Washington
- People giving Deshone Kizer to the Cardinals because he's "A Bruce Arians type QB" must be forgetting that he most likely will be retiring after this season or the next. Cardinals draft plan is gonna be win now if he has anything to do with it. The Cardinals love speed and Washington is a fast as it gets in the NFL.
- The championship window in Arizona is rapidly closing. If they're smart, which they usually are, they are not taking a developmental QB in the first round of one of the worst QB classes ever.
Previous Pick: Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt
- Other Arizona Cardinals Selections
Philadelphia Eagles: Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
- This pick is hard. The Eagles should take whoever they think is the top corner left on their board at 14 but with this class it could any of 5 players. I love tabor and think he's the best man to man shutdown corner in this class despite of his 40 time. After seeing how miserably Ryan Grigson failed as a GM teams are realizing they have to build up the defense after getting their franchise QB. Not spending a first round pick on a clone of a receiver they already have.
Previous Pick: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan
- Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections
Indianapolis Colts: Derek Barnett, EDGE, Tennessee
- Ahh Ryan Grigson. Him, Matt Millen, and Ray Farmer are truely the only GMs in NFL history I feel the teams would have been better off letting a random fan take the picks then the people actually paid to make them. The Colts have a way to goes to clean up his mess but building the defense and building some inkling of a defense is where they need to start. Barnett might now be the most physically impressive as far as NFL players go but he gives 110% every snap he's out there and his stats reflect his effort.
Previous Pick: Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
- Other Indianapolis Colts Selections
Baltimore Ravens: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
- What makes the Ravens so great at the NFL Draft is that GM Ozzie Newsome doesn't over think. He takes the best player on the board and ones he knows will transition well to the NFL.
- Humphery was one of the best players for the best defense in the nation. Despite Mike Williams dominating the Albama Secondary Humphery has been great to solid all year long. Ravens love Alabama players and they get another great one here at a position of need.
