Kevin King was the worst of the 3 players on Washington's secondary. Sidney Jones got injured and that's the only reason King got pushed up. Sidney Jones and Budda Baker would have both been better selections here. Green Bay may do well with Kevin King.
The 6-6 322 lb Cam Robinson goes to Jacksonville as a left tackle. Robinson fixed his pass blocking footwork which was his biggest issue at Alabama's Pro Day. I can see Robinson having a Russell Okung like impact in Denver. Robinson played right tackle, left guard, and right guard in High School before committing to Alabama to play left tackle which is why Robinson is more versatile than people realize. Albert gives you insurance at left tackle behind Brandon Albert plus he can start at left guard right away.
Seattle got depth behind Jarran Reed. McDowell has first round on the field talent and is 295 lbs. At the same time he has huge maturity issues.
Malik McDowell is versatile enough to play anywhere on the defensive line in the 4-3 and the 3-4 at 5-technique at 3-4 defensive end on either side which is a great quality to have. McDowell put on weight to get up to 6-6 295 lbs despite playing 4-3 defensive tackle at Michigan State undersized at 270 lbs while lining up everywhere on Michigan State's 4-3 defensive line.
Arizona needed a starting strong safety next to Tyrann Mathieu. They gave up too much to move up for Budda Baker, but they gave up too much so this is a B grade.
The 5-9 195 lb Budda Baker is smaller than advertised after he was expected to weigh in at 5-10 192 lbs. Baker had 49 solo tackles, 22 assisted tackles, 71 total tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, 6 deflections from pass breakups, and 2 interceptions. Baker is very fast and athletic on tape. I feel like after Jamal Adams, Malik Hooker, and Obi Melifonwu he is the best safety at man, zone, and press coverage. At the same time, that lack of size keeps Baker out of the first round even with his impressive 4.47 40-time.
The 6-2 202 lb Zay Jones really dominated in Mobile. He's a great possession receiver who had over 150 receptions in 2016, but sucks in the red zone on tape despite what I saw in Mobile. Zay Jones was fantastic at the 2017 NFL Combine though. He did enough to convince me he's the third best receiver in this draft.
Forrest Lamp is a perfect replacement to D.J. Fluker. Lamp was my 17th best player available.
The 6-4 300 lb Forrest Lamp is a guy who Thomas Coburn mentioned in November as a first round prospect way before Jeremiah or Mayock put him in their first rounds. Thomas made his debut on my Senior Bowl preview podcast. Lamps tape is outstanding as he was a right tackle in high school, moved to left tackle at Western Kentucky took snaps as the teams center in practice sessions plus he has the versatility to play all five spots on the offensive line.
My only questions with Lamp were his pass blocking strength and arm length. Lamp did 34 reps on the bench press and his arm length is 32 inches rather than 31 7/8. Lamp addressed his concerns at the 2017 NFL Combine. Everything else makes Lamp a complete offensive lineman as he only gave up 1 sack and 3 quarterback hurries in his last two seasons at Western Kentucky after being flawless as a blindside to Brandon Doughty in 2015.
The 5-10 210 lb Dalvin Cook has been a monster on the ground in 2016. Cook had 288 carries, 1,765 rushing yards, 19 rushing touchdowns, 33 receptions, 488 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown in 2016. Cook is better at running to the outside than Fournette, he catches out of the backfield, blocks better than Fournette, and is more durable. Some have Dalvin Cook ahead of Fournette. It's easy to see why most feel that way and there is no question that Cook would be an upgrade over Latavius Murray.
The 6-3 227 lb Gerald Everett out of South Alabama is a complete tight end on tape. He's the fourth tight end in my rankings, and I can see him starting on the Los Angeles Rams right away. I had a late second round grade on him.
Chicago drafts a tight end for depth. The 6-6 270 lb Adam Shaheen had 70 receptions, 803 receiving yards, and 10 receiving touchdowns in 2015 as a sophomore after becoming Ashland's starting tight end. Shaheen added 7 lbs of muscle to be 6-6 277 lbs in 2016 having 57 receptions, 867 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. Shaheen has incredible size and could be Division 2's version of Rob Gronkowski without the durability issues Gronkowski had coming out of Arizona.
dd>Both Florida cornerbacks disappointed at the 2017 NFL Combine with their 40 times. This would be an absolute steal though if the Bills could land Quincy Wilson in the second round after taking Corey Davis in the first round.
The 6-1 213 lb Quincy Wilson goes to Indianapolis with the best size and speed of any corner in the draft which is why some have Wilson in the top 10 despite being the #2 corner on Florida. Wilson has good man, zone, and press coverage. Wilson is a pretty complete boundary cornerback despite being the #2 corner on Florida. Wilson is not a #1 field cornerback, but he can compliment Vontae Davis perfectly.
Cincinanti is not drafting for need. They are drafting for value and when you consider their needs like left tackle, 4-3 right end, free safety. The Bengals are ignoring needs and while Mixon is good value, he doesn't fit the Bengals they got Jeremy Hill and Giovanni Bernard.
The 6-4 280 lb Demarcus Walker has 15 sacks and 16.5 tackles for a loss in 2016 after having 10.5 sacks in 2015 as a junior. Florida went 0/12 on third down conversions against Florida State while Walker went 8-0 in his career against Miami FL and Florida at Florida State in his four years with the program. Like Myles Garrett and Derek Barnett, I see Demarcus Walker as an immediate difference maker.
The Browns took the second best quarterback after Patrick Mahomes. I think Kizer has potential as a border line starter.
DeShone Kizer may not have the eye popping statistics Mahomes has. Kizer has the arm strength, throwing power, quick release, mechanics with ball placement, and size you want in a starting quarterback at 6-4 233 lbs with the remaining first round quarterbacks being 6-2 225 lbs or smaller. I do have questions with Kizer's accuracy at times. Kizer showcased the football IQ I thought he lacked, and seems like he has enough potential to develop into a quality border-line starter.
The 6-2 243 lb Raekwon McMillan had 49 solo tackles, 52 assisted tackles, and 102 total tackles in 2016. He gives Miami an immediate starter at left outside linebacker. McMillan has great run stuffing and coverage. His playmaking is inconsistent though due to a lack of athleticism at times and some consider him a two down linebacker. McMillan has top 60 potential in this draft, but may begin his career a top 100 project.
The Giants can draft Dalvin Tomlinson here. Dalvin Tomlinson is now a third round prospect after impressing at the 2017 Senior Bowl, the 2017 NFL Combine, and Alabama's 2017 NFL Pro Day. New York can take a chance on him.
dd>The 6-4 219 lb Obi Melifonwu has four years of experience as a starting free safety, but he's versatile enough to play strong safety too. Obi Melifonwu is now my third best safety and multiple teams picking in the back half of the first round like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers, Atlanta Falcons, and New Orleans Saints worked him out. Even the New England Patriots were impressed enough by him to give him an individual workout. Oakland gets an A+ grade for getting a first round talent.
Obi added 12 lbs of muscle between the end of the regular season and his week in Mobile. Obi showed he could play man, zone, or presss effectively on tape. Melifonwu played both strong safety and free safety on tape against Virginia. Obi Melifonwu added 5 lbs of muscle and dominated the 2017 NFL Combine.
The Texans get a middle linebacker for depth behind Brian Cushing. I feel like the 6-3 234 lb Zach Cunningham is a good pick for the Steelers in the second round. Zach Cunningham had 71 solo tackles, 54 assisted tackles, 125 total tackles, and 16.5 tackles for a loss in 2016. If you want a tackling machine that can stop the run Zach Cunningham is your man, but his foot speed looked awful versus North Carolina State.
The Chiefs get another player at 5-technique here. The 6-7 280 lb Tanoh Kpassagnon is now versatile enough to play 4-3 right end or 3-4 right end after losing 10 lbs he can play left end too. That really helps his stock. Kpassagnon had 21.5 tackles for a loss and 11 sacks in 2016.
The 6-0 202 lb Chidobe Awuzie has played everywhere on the secondary at field cornerback, boundary cornerback, nickel cornerback, strong safety, and free safety. Awuzie ran a 4.43 40-time plus he had 12 deflections from pass breakups in 2016. He's a #1 field cornerback and that is something the Cowboys desperately need at this point.
The 6-1 220 lb Josh Jones had 109 total tackles and 8 deflections from pass breakups at free safety in 2016 before declaring for the 2017 NFL Draft. Jones did 20 reps on the bench press running a 4.41 40-time and put himself in late second round consideration with how he performed at the combine.
The 6-1 215 lb JuJu Smith-Schuster was the top wide receiver back in the preseason. JuJu struggled with only 70 receptions, 914 receiving yards, and 10 receiving touchdowns in 2016. JuJu Smith-Schuster is someone that could step in right away to replace Martavis Bryant plus he compliments Antonio Brown perfectly at this point.
