Cleveland gets their number one corner here. Donte Jackson has the size of a slot corner. You can argue that he has first round tape though. Cleveland needs multiple corners and they get their number one corner here.
New York gets a right tackle to develop under Ereck Flowers. Flowers needs to go and Orlando Brown would be a player who could develop as a swing tackle for a year before taking over for Flowers in 2019.
The Browns get a wide receiver to push Corey Coleman for the slot receiver job. Kirk is a steal at this point and you can certainly argue he's going to have a better career than Courtland Sutton despite falling to the second round. He dominated versus Marlon Humphrey and Tre'Davious White in 2016. He had an underwhelming season in 2017 before bouncing back in his Bowl Game and the combine. Kirk could compliment Jarvis Landry for years in Cleveland when you consider how Josh Gordon cannot avoid failing drug tests along with the fact that Corey Coleman cannot stay healthy. Depth is needed here, and Kirk is someone who could be great for Cleveland.
The Colts get a pass rusher here. Something tells me they reach for Arden Key early on day 2 after his impressive performance a the 2018 NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Even if Key isn't ready to start, he can still be used in a depth role behind 4-3 right end Jabaal Sheard with Tarrell Basham at 4-3 left end while Key bulks up. Key could start at 4-3 right end at some point if he stays clean off the field, works hard, avoids injuries, and plays up to his potential. Those are four big ifs though.
The Colts get a running back to take pressure off of Andrew Luck. They got Marlon Mack, but I see him nothing more as a change of pace back. Guice is a franchise back who can be a three down running back in Indianapolis. Give Guice a left guard like Quenton Nelson and this offense can take off.
Tampa Bay gets the best player on the board at 38. The Buccaneers re-signed Brent Grimes on a one-year deal, have Vernon Hargreaves III next to him, and Ryan Smith in the nickel. Neither Hargreaves III or Smith took the next step when Grimes was injured last season. Tampa Bay can develop Oliver in 2018, and then make him their number one corner for the future in 2019 if neither Hargreaves III or Smith takes the next step, because I really believe Oliver has the upside to be a number one field cornerback.
Chicago gets a wide receiver here. Obtaining Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel as a slot receiver next to the injury prone Kevin White wasn't enough. Chicago also didn't match New Orleans offer for Cameron Meredith. Depth is needed at wide receiver on this team and James Washington could be a great addition for Chicago at 39.
The Broncos have their starting offensive line in place. Braden Smith is talented enough to beat out Max Garcia for the left guard. Even if Smith begins his career as the backup left guard, he gives Josh Allen an offensive lineman to compliment him in the future.
The Oakland Raiders get an immediate starter next to Justin Ellis. Maurice Hurst has a very good first step that is very similar to Legendary MMA Fighter Maurice Smith. If Hurst didn't have a heart condition and weighed a little more, you could argue he's a first rounder. Oakland gets a huge steal with Maurice Hurst in the second round after getting Roquan Smith in the first round.
Miami needs a tight end to replace Julius Thomas. Hayden Hurst was the best blocker and the most athletic tight end. His issue was pass catching consistently on tape. He dominated the Gaunltet Drill at the 2018 NFL Combine and did well at South Carolina's Pro Day. I believe he will be the first tight end picked.
The Patriots get a wide receiver here. D.J. Chark ran the fastest 40-time in the 2018 NFL Combine. He showed he was an excellent route runner. He doesn't have the floor of James Washington in my mind, but he's got the ceiling of a Pro Bowl receiver like Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton, or Christian Kirk despite how raw he is. With Tom Brady getting him the ball, he could be the steal of the 2018 NFL Draft at wide receiver.
The Packers passed on a cornerback for Mike McGlinchey in the first round. Now they atone for that and get Carlton Davis to be their number one field cornerback after trading their best cornerback to Cleveland. I don't see Kevin King being a number one cornerback so they get Davis to be that cornerback here.
The Colts get a starting right tackle here. With Quenton Nelson, Derrius Guice, and Tyrell Crosby. Andrew Luck has an offense that can let him throw it 25 times a game and hand it off to Guice 25 times a game instead of throwing it 50 times a game and only handing it off 14 times a game. That solves a lot of problems for this offense in Indianapolis and allows the Colts to average over 30 points a game offensively.
Baltimore gets a running back here. Even though I really like what Alex Collins did, let's face reality and admit Nick Chubb is an upgrade over him. Georgia has two running backs that I see becoming NFL starters.
One thing I'll say is that Nick Chubb is better than Sony Michel in pass protection. If you value vision and pass protection in your running backs more than game speed on film, then Nick Chubb is your man.
The Chiefs get a 3-4 middle linebacker to replace Derrick Thomas here. Leighton Vander Esch didn't test well medically at the 2018 NFL Combine. I've also heard that Kansas City loves Leighton Vander Esch and he is one player they would trade back into the first round to obtain. In this mock, they get Leighton Vander Esch at 54.
Carolina gets a starting free safety in the second round after grabbing Andrew Norwell's replacement in the first round. Justin Reid is a bargain at this point and Carolina can not let him slip to Atlanta.
Buffalo picks here with the Rams pick. Buffalo needs a long-term next to Kelvin Benjamin. Anthony Miller may be talented enough to beat out Zay Jones who only caught 29 out of 74 targets during his rookie season in 2017.
Tennessee gets Harrison Phillips as a replacement to Karl Klug. Pairing Phillips with Jurrell Casey in the 5-technique could be a deadly combination for the Tennessee Titans now that Bennie Logan is their nose tackle. You also got Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Harold Landry as a situational pass rusher, and Kevin Dodd for depth at 3-4 outside linebacker so Mike Vrabel and Dean Pees have to feel very optimistic about this group of guys he's coaching moving forward.
San Francisco got Jerrick McKinnon in Free Agency and signed him to a four year deal even though he never had a 1,000 rushing yards in Minnesota. San Francisco gets a change of pace back to compliment him here with Ronald Jones because Jones probably isn't a future starter, but could be a great situational change of pace running back that is getting the hype of a day 2 pick.
Pittsburgh gets a situational swing tackle to sit behind Marcus Gilbert who got injured three times last season. Brian O'Neill is a good swing tackle candidate to replace Chris Hubbard in the second round.
The Jacksonville Jaguars get a tight end here. Dallas Goedert provides fantasitc value for Jacksonville who needs a tight end here in the second round. Goedert could come in and start right away for the Jaguars in 2018, plus he's the best player on the board.
Minnesota has Linval Joseph and Sheldon Richardson as their starting defensive tackles. Someone who can beat out Jaleel Johnson for the third best defensive tackle in this draft is B.J. Hill out of North Carolina State. With Richardson on a one-year prove it deal, look for Hill to be the starting defensive tackle next to Joseph in 2019 and beyond.
The Patriots get a small school offensive tackle here. Alex Cappa is versatile enough to play left tackle, left guard, right guard, or right tackle. He could be a backup to Antonio Garcia, Joe Thuney, Shaq Mason, or Marcus Cannon in a worst case scenario. Best case scenario he comes in and becomes Tom Brady's blindside. Something about Cappa reminds me of Matt Light, and the Patriots have a dire need at left tackle that they need to fill.
Cleveland has an offensive tackle tandem featuring Spencer Drango at left tackle and Chris Hubbard a backup on the Steelers at right tackle. I don't trust either offensive tackle long-term and with Joe Thomas retiring, depth at both offensive tackle spots is needed. Chukwuma Okorafor may be talented enough to be Sam Darnold's blinside down the road, but with 2019 also being stacked at offensive tackle, I'm projecting Okorafor as a right tackle for the time being.
