Round 1 Picks 17-32
Mark Sciubba follow @MarkSciubbaDoe Last Updated: May 14, 2018.
San Francisco 49ers: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
- The 49ers desperately need a number 1 Receiver for Jimmy G. I wouldn't be shocked to see them make a trade for one in the season but even if they do, Brown would be a nice pick up here.
Dallas Cowboys: Jaquon Johnson, S, Miami FL
- The Cowboys get the safety to help their corners out that they've needed for years now. Johnson and the turnover chain will have the NFL’s attention as he tries to lead the Hurricane’s defense back to the ACC championship.
Detroit Lions: DeAndre Baker, CB, Georgia
- I don't know how many years in a row I'm gonna mock a CB to the Lions in the first round. It's not stopping this year though as they botched the position in the 2018 draft by not taking one early. Baker is a super solid stickyan toan corner perfect for Matt Patricia's defense who might be getting lit up alot through the air this season.
Atlanta Falcons: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
- Trevon Diggs is set to take on a staring role this year for the Crimson Tide. The younger brother of Stefon Diggs will be coached up all year by Nick Saban to replace all they lost in the secondary this year. The NFL Bloodlines and SEC schedule should allow Diggs to play his way into the first round next year.
Oakland Raiders: Clellin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson
- The Raiders are the best of the AFC West teams, but don’t expect them to get past the wild card round. The Raiders take a very good and very safe pass rusher from the best position group in college football. After addressing the Offensive trenches so heavy Gruden looks to elevate his front 7 in year two.
Baltimore Ravens: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State
- Terrell Suggs isn't playing forever. The Ravens could look totally different this time next year. Flacco, Newsome, Harbaugh, and Suggs could all be gone. A strong presence on the edge like Sweat would be a great place to start the defensive rebuild.
Minnesota Vikings: Stanley Morgan Jr., WR, Nebraska
- The Vikings grab a stud wideout here. Morgan had the traits of a number 1 Receiver in the NFL. Inconsistent QB play and a run heavy offense is what has held him back. Scott Frost should help fix both of those things. Morgan is another one of my favorites in what seems to be a strong WR class.
New York Giants: Zack Bailey, OT, South Carolina
- David Gettleman aced his first draft with Giants. The team is still in need of some war daddy's though. Bailey really impressed me on tape and has the size of a prototype NFL tackle.
Houston Texans: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
- The Texans address the offensive line and get Watson and the running game some help after not having the draft capital to do it in 18. Williams is a pro ready tackle who could play left or right in the NFL depending on the roster he goes to. Having Williams at left tackle and Rankin at right tackle does wonders for Deshaun Watson moving forward.
Philadelphia Eagles: David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
- The Eagles look as stacked as anyone in football. Planning for the future at the tackle position would be a great move for a team that has a franchise QB who's already been on IR once.
Green Bay Packers: Darrin Hall, RB, Pittsburgh
- Hall looked the part of RB1 when Pitt decided to feed him the ball. With some first round tape, a great workout, and the fact he won't have too many miles on his body coming out Darrin Hall could be a guy slipping into the end of round 1 in 2019.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
- The 2019 QB class may be sneaky good. Of course it won't have the hype of 18 but theirs 5 or 6 QBs with a shot to go round one if they perform strong this year. Oregon looked like a totally different offense when Herbert was hurt.
Green Bay Packers: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State
- The Packers grab some beef after spending their 2018 Draft addressing their defensive woes. Risner is a great lineman and could be next year's tackle projected to play inside at the NFL.
New England Patriots: Sutton Smith, EDGE, Northern Illinois
- The Patriots grab one of the most interesting players in college football entering 2019 season. Smith is a converted running back who has became a sack master in the MAC.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
- The Steelers usually don't go for Alabama players early. The impending departure of Le'Veon Bell forces them to grab the best RB available here late in round 1.
Los Angeles Rams: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
- Yup that's right, I think the Rams win the Superbowl. They like the Eagles used the advantage of having a stacked roster to add onto the Offensive line and get Little. Little is the prototype Offensive guard but could survive at tackle in the NFL.
