- Cleveland Browns – Myles Garrett, EDGE, Texas A&M
I find it highly unlikely the Browns can go in a different direction. There have been rumblings that they may look QB, but I believe it is a smoke screen at this point. Garrett is the best player in the draft, a rare athlete with the talent to match. Garrett can have a Von Miller like impact on the Browns. With only 26 sacks last season ranking 30th in the league it’s a no brainer. Kyle Crabbs shares his thoughts on Myles Garrett here.
- San Francisco 49ers – Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
Trubisky is my second ranked quarterback, but I do have a first-round grade on him. He is an athletic quarterback with good poise, accuracy, and anticipation. The 49ers are in a tough spot with no clear-cut number 2 prospect in the class. They are said to be fond of Trubisky, and with Hoyer projected to start it makes sense to look to build around Trubisky.
- Chicago Bears – Solomon Thomas, EDGE, Stanford
The Bears were 12th in the league in sacks last year, but need a player who can help stop the run as well as rush the passer. Thomas projects favorably as both a 3-tech and a 5-tech and will help the Bears in both the run game and rushing the passer.
- Jacksonville Jaguars – Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama
The Jaguars biggest needs are offensive line and tight end. They give a long look to OJ Howard who is a rare prospect at the position, but ultimately reach for the offensive lineman. Director of scouting at NDT Scouting Kyle Crabbs loved Cam Robinson and thinks he is a top 5 player in the class.
- Tennessee Titans – Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
The Titans are desperate for weapons to give Marcus Mariota with Rishard Matthews currently profiling as the team’s number one option. Davis is an explosive play maker, who can play both outside and kick inside to slot and dominate in three wide sets. He also fits the Titans smash mouth offensive style with his run blocking ability.
- New York Jets – Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
Jets fans are all over the map in terms of what they want. I wrote my thoughts on the Jets quarterback situation here. Watson not only brings his winning pedigree, but pocket presence, poise, accuracy, and an ability to read a defense. He is a much maligned QB who doesn’t get credit for what he does pre-snap or for his mental makeup.

- Los Angeles Chargers – Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Adams fits perfectly in LA. He is a do it all safety that can play in the box, single high, or nickel corner. He will give the Chargers one of the league’s most dangerous and versatile secondary’s.
- Carolina Panthers – Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Now I am not a fan of this selection, but according to the national media the writing has been on the wall for months here. This is the Panthers top guy and he fits their power running style. He is a beast in the open field, but there are legitimate concerns about his game. National Scout Scott Bischoff explains why.
