Pre-Combine Round 1 Mock

Recommended Posts

1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State

Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo.

2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky

Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone.

3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama

MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3.

4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan

The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge.

5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama

With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T.

6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning.

7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma

Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line. 

8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag.

9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston

With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10. 

10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU

Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract.

11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri

Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff.

12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida

GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement.

13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size. 

14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson

Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal.

15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke

Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense.

16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State

Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE.

17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU

Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better.

18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi

The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line. 

19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi

Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat.

20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama

Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams.

21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington

Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary.

22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma

Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat.

23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida

Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down.

24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State

Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed.

25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson

Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets.

26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State

DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB.

27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama

Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack.

28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan

DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White.

29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia

The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC.

30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa

The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE.

31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech

Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season.

32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa

While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.
