2017 NFL Draft Results




Round 1 Picks 17-32



Jonathan Allen, a top 5 talent fell to the back half of the first round.



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: April 27, 2017.


  1. Washington Redskins: Jonathan Allen, 3-4 RE, Alabama A+ Grade

    Jonathan Allen is a perfect fit and replacement for Chris Baker. This is easily an A+ grade.


    The Redskins pick Alabama senior Jonathan Allen here. Jonathan Allen had 10.5 sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, and 15 quarterback hurries in 2016 during his senior season. My biggest concern with Allen is that I see him as a 3-4 only player, but he looked like he could play defensive tackle in the 4-3 against Texas A&M. Allen got schooled on tape when facing Arkansas left tackle Dan Skipper and does better against guards and right tackles on tape. He had similar problems against Clemson left tackle Mitch Hyatt who is expected to be a top 5 pick in 2018. Allen also struggled against Kentucky center Jon Toth as well, but he did get a sack on Western Kentucky's Forrest Lamp even though Lamp played well against the 6-3 285 lb Jonathan Allen.


  2. Tennessee Titans: Adoree Jackson, CB, USC B- Grade

    Adoree Jackson is a second round cornerback and my tenth best cornerback. I'm only giving this a B- grade because it is such a deep cornerback class.



  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama A+ Grade

    O.J. Howard is a top ten talent. He is a big target and another weapon for Winston to throw to.


    O.J. Howard is 6-5 249 lbs and he absolutely dominated in Mobile, the 2017 NFL Combine, and Alabama's Pro Day and is a top 12 talent. Howard had 45 receptions, 595 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns in 2016.


  4. Denver Broncos: Garrett Bolles, LT, Utah B- Grade

    Garrett Bolles is a guy I had a second round grade on. They need a left tackle so that is why I gave the Broncos a B- grade.



  5. Detroit Lions: Jarrad Davis, ROLB, Florida B Grade

    Jarrad Davis is a plug-in-player here. He will play right outside linebacker where DeAndre Levy played.


    Jarrad Davis had 25 solo tackles, 31 assisted tackles, 56 total tackles, 6 tackles for a loss, 4 deflections from pass breakups, 5 quarterback hurries, and 2 sacks in 2016. Davis has been all over the field in 2016. Davis got injured against Arkansas and missed the South Carolina, LSU, Florida State, and SEC Championship games, but he has the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker. Davis is the most versatile linebacker prospect on tape in 2016 after Reuben Foster and his foot speed is vastly superior to Zach Cunningham's. Even with his injuries, Davis is a better player on tape than Cunningham when healthy.


  6. Miami Dolphins: Charles Harris, RE, Missouri B Grade

    Charles Harris is a huge upgrade over Andre Branch. At the same time Harris is a reach, but this is a solid pick.



  7. New York Giants: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss A- Grade

    New York drafts the 6-3 236 lb Evan Engram as a tight end for Eli Manning and Engram dominated the 2017 NFL Combine with a 4.42 40-time. Engram had 65 receptions, 928 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns in 2016.


  8. Oakland Raiders: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State B Grade

    Oakland took a nickel corner here. I had a late first round grade on Conley, but I also feel like this pick is a reach here which is why I gave the Raiders a B grade.



  9. Cleveland Browns: Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan A+ Grade

    This pick is a slight reach here. Peppers addresses a need though plus the Browns have two first round picks in 2018 which is why the Browns got a B grade.


    Editors notice. I saw a tweet saying that Donald Trump called this the worst pick since Brandon Weeden. Trump was wrong about Manziel three years ago so now I'm bumping this up to an A+ pick because Trump does not know football.


  10. Atlanta Falcons: Takkarist McKinley, RE, UCLA B Grade

    Takkarist McKinley was expected to be an outside linebacker in the 2017 Senior Bowl after accepting his invite to Mobile before being ruled out of the 2017 Senior Bowl with an injury. McKinley had 18 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, and 6 deflections from pass breakups in 2016. McKinley has the versatility to play 4-3 right end, 4-3 left end, 3-4 right outside linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker with his versatility. I initially had McKinley as a 4-3 defensive end, but he is a better fit for 3-4 outside linebacker after watching his tape.



  11. Buffalo Bills: Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU B Grade

    The 5-11 191 lb Tre'Davious White did too well in Mobile to fall out of the first round correcting his issues with press coverage and stopping the run after having 13 deflections from pass breakups for LSU in 2016. At the same time other underclassmen stepped up at the 2017 NFL Combine which is the biggest reason White fell as far as he did. White would be a good cornerback next to Ronald Darby here.


  12. Dallas Cowboys: Taco Charlton, RE, Michigan A+ Grade

    Dallas got a top 15 player at 28. Taco Charlton easily warrants an A+ grade.





  13. Cleveland Browns: David Njoku, TE, Miami FL A Grade

    David Njoku was 32 on my board. This is great value for David Njoku at 29 as he compliments Barnidge well.


  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: T.J. Watt, 3-4 ROLB, Wisconsin B Grade

    The 6-5 252 lb T.J. Watt only has one year of experience as a starter. Watt lined up at 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, 3-4 left outside linebacker, 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, and 4-3 middle linebacker.


    Watt had 38 solo tackles, 25 assisted tackles, 63 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks, and 13 quarterback hurries. Watt's ability will intrigue the Steelers from a value standpoint despite the bad combine.



  15. San Francisco 49ers: Reuben Foster, MLB, Alabama A+ Grade

    Reuben Foster had 60 solo tackles, 55 assisted tackles, 115 total tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 5 sacks, and 8 quarterback hurries in 2016. Foster dominated in coverage in 2015. My only concern with him would be to add 5 lbs of muscle at 6-1 228 lbs.


    Foster has the pass rushing of Demario Davis, stops the run like Lawrence Timmons, drops back into coverage like Jamie Collins, and has the exact same versatility as former Alabama linebackers Dont'a Hightower and Reggie Ragland. This linebacker also has the best rip and swim moves on tape since Lawrence Taylor and he's more of an inside linebacker rather than an outside linebacker even though he could be a plug-in-play guy at any linebacker spot in the NFL.


    Foster has the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker. Foster is the most versatile first round linebacker prospect on tape in 2016.


  16. New Orleans Saints: Ryan Ramczyk, RT, Wisconsin C- Grade

    New Orleans reached here. Ramczyk is a third round talent that I mocked in the second round.
