Round 1 Picks 1-16
Tony Mario's 2017 NFL Mock Draft is up. Enjoy!
Tony Mario Last Updated: March 31, 2017.
Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett, 3-4 ROLB, Texas A&M
- Myles Garrett is a generational talent. Cleveland can wait until the 2018 NFL Draft for a quarterback with the progress Cody Kessler has made.
- Other Cleveland Browns Selections
San Francisco 49ers: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
- San Francisco is taking a quarterback here. John Lynch has raved about this years quarterbacks. Even though I like Mitchell Trubisky the best, DeShone Kizer is the guy the 49ers seem to have the most interest in.
Previous Pick: Jonathan Allen, 3-4 RE, Alabama
- Other San Francisco 49ers Selections
Chicago Bears: Jonathan Allen, 3-4 RE, Alabama
- The Bears gave Mike Glennon too much money to draft a quarterback at 3. Jonathan Allen makes the most logical sense at this point.
Previous Pick: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
- Other Chicago Bears Selections
Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
- Jacksonville addressed a vast majority of their team needs in the offseason. The Jaguars can do something smart by taking the best overall player available a 4 in Leonard Fournette rather than draft for need here.
Previous Pick: Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan
- Other Jacksonville Jaguars Selections
Tennessee Titans: Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State
- Tennessee addressed most of their offseason needs. A free safety to compliment Jonathan Cyprien is still needed. Jamal Adams is the best safety in the draft, but Malik Hooker is the better scheme fit for the Titans.
Previous Pick: Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
- Other Tennessee Titans Selections
New York Jets: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
- Not only does Marshon Lattimore fill a need for th Jets, you can also argue he's the best player available. Lattimore will not fall out of the top 6 because he stood out the most among the cornerbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Previous Pick: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
- Other New York Jets Selections
Los Angeles Chargers: Jamal Adams, SS, LSU
- Not only does Jamal Adams fill the biggest need for the Chargers, but he's also the best player on the board. Some will go as far as to say that Adams is the best prospect in this draft after Myles Garrett and Jonathan Allen so the Chargers are getting a clear steal with Adams here.
Previous Pick: Ryan Ramczyk, LT, Wisconsin
- Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections
Carolina Panthers: Solomon Thomas, LE, Stanford
- The Carolina Panthers will likely start Mario Addison at 4-3 right end with Charles Johnson complimenting him at 4-3 left end. Kony Ealy rotated with Addison to give Carolina depth at defensive end. I can see the Panthers drafting Solomon Thomas at 8 to keep that depth in tact at the defensive end position.
Previous Pick: Cam Robinson, LT, Alabama
- Other Carolina Panthers Selections
Cincinnati Bengals: Derek Barnett, RE, Tennessee
- Derek Barnett would be a huge upgrade over Michael Johnson. Having Barnett and Carlos Dunlap compliment each other as defensive ends gives Cincinnati a lethal pass rush which can give Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger problems.
- Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections
Buffalo Bills: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
- Buffalo got Tyrod Taylor back at quarterback, but lost 5 wide receivers to Free Agency or retirement. Mike Williams is a slam dunk pick for the Bills if he slips to 10. Williams to Buffalo is such a slam dunk if he falls to this spot that the Bills need to be running up to the podium to turn in their draft card.
Previous Pick: Reuben Foster, 3-4 MLB, Alabama
- Other Buffalo Bills Selections
New Orleans Saints: Taco Charlton, LE, Michigan
- New Orleans needs a 4-3 left end. Taco Charlton is a perfect pick for the Saints at 11.
Previous Pick: Desmond King, CB, Iowa
- Other New Orleans Saints Selections
Cleveland Browns: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
- Mitch or Mitchell Trubisky whatever you want to call him is my favorite quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft. I'd urge and advise the Browns to take the Ohio Native and Browns fan at 12.
Previous Pick: Jamal Adams, SS, LSU
- Other Cleveland Browns Selections
Arizona Cardinals: Reuben Foster, 3-4 MLB, Alabama
- Reuben Foster gives Arizona a replacement to Kevin Minter at 3-4 middle linebacker. Taking Foster is a no brainer for the Cardinals here.
Previous Pick: Malik McDowell, 3-4 RE, Michigan State
- Other Arizona Cardinals Selections
Philadelphia Eagles: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
- Philadelphia got this pick by giving the Vikings Sam Bradford. Ryan Matthews cannot stay healthy so getting a reliable running back like Dalvin Cook with this pick may be something for the Eagles to consider here.
- Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections
Indianapolis Colts: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
- The Colts traded Dwayne Allen to the Patriots. O.J. Howard is the best player available and a huge upgrade over Jack Doyle since he gives Andrew Luck another weapon to work with.
Previous Pick: Charles Harris, RE, Missouri
- Other Indianapolis Colts Selections
Baltimore Ravens: John Ross, WR, Washington
- Baltimore goes with a wide receiver here. John Ross gives Baltimore a slot receiver that can be utilized as a deep threat for Joe Flacco. While Mike Wallace showed promise at times, he didn't fill the void Torrey Smith left and there is no question that Ross will fill that void with this pick at 16.
Previous Pick: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
- Other Baltimore Ravens Selections
