1. Bucs - Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State - The Bucs finished 29th in points, 25th in passing yards. While their lack of a run game is just as apparent of a need, there is no way they are going to win games without a franchise signal caller. Winston is a competitor and a true pocket passer.
2. Titans - Leonard Williams, DT/DE, USC - The Titans finished 30th in points, 29th in passing yards. On the surface, they appear to need a QB as much as the Bucs do. However, their numbers on defense are just as bad. They finished 29th in points allowed, 31st in rushing yards allowed. I think the Titans will give Mettenberger a shot next year vs. going after Mariota. Meanwhile, they add Williams who is a great presence at the LOS. He plays the run and pass very well.
3. Jaguars - Dante Fowler, OLB/DE, Florida - The Jaguars were dead last in points scored, and ranked 31st in total yards. They also gave up a league high in sacks at 71. There is a definitive need for a play maker on offense, as well as some O-Line help. While their sack total on defense was amongst the best in the league, they finished 26th in both points and yards allowed. Needs loom everywhere. I don't see a Top-5 OT in this draft class, and despite the numbers, their WR corps are pretty solid. I think this rules out an O-Lineman and/or WR. Instead, they go with Fowler, a DE/OLB hybrid who is very tough to block in all facets of the game. He moves in opposite of Clemmons to form a very good edge tandem.
4. Raiders - Kevin White, WR, West Virginia - The Raiders finished 31st in points, and were dead last in total yards. They were very deficient in both the pass and certainly in the run game. Despite the low output from the offense, the O-Line protected their QB a lot better than many of the other teams. On defense, they finished dead last in points allowed, 21st in yards allowed. James Jones was a solid WR for the Raiders, but they are devoid of a franchise, #1 WR. White is the nation's best WR on most boards, and should get the call if Cooper doesn't.
5. Redskins - Randy Gregory, DE/OLB, Nebraska - Despite putting up solid yard totals on offense, the 'Skins finished 26th in points scored. They were 31st in sacks allowed, giving up 58 for the season. Their defense finished 30th in points allowed, 20th in total yards allowed. I still don't see an O-Lineman worth a top-10 selection, so they address their defense. Gregory was undersized at the combine, but still flashed.
6. Jets - Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon - The Jets finished 28th in points scored, and were dead last in passing yards. On defense, they finished 24th in points allowed, yet were amazingly 6th in totals yards allowed. Mariota is high on my board, and the Jets need a QB. Geno Smith threw as many INTs as he did TDs...he's not the answer.
7. Bears - Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson - Chicago's offense was 23rd in points scored, and 21st in total yards. The defense stunk, finishing 31st in points allowed, 30th in total yards allowed. Their play against the pass hurt them. Beasley is an absolute beast, one who'll shine in Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme.
8. Falcons - Shane Ray, DE/OLB, Missouri - The Falcons finished 8th in points scored,12th in total yards. Their defense however was a mess. They finished 27th in points allowed, and dead last in total yards allowed. They were horrible against the pass, posting just 22 sacks. They absolutely need help in getting to opposing QBs. Shane Ray is an elite pass rusher, a player who should blow up his Pro Day. While a bit undersized for the DE spot, he can play there or at OLB.
9. Giants - Danny Shelton, NT/DT, Washington - The Giants had a strong offense, finishing 13th in points scored and 10th in total yards. Their defense was a let down, finishing at 22nd in points allowed, 29th in total yards allowed. They really struggled at stopping the run. Shelton is a thick, strong man who plays with a low base and is a beast against the run. He also shows quickness and hustle for a big man. An O-Lineman could go here as well to protect Manning.
10. Rams - La'ell Collins, OT/OG, LSU - The Rams had an offense that finished 21st in points, 28th in total yards. Their passing game hurt them. On defense, they finished 17th in both points and total yards allowed. The O-Line allowed 47 sacks, which was 24th overall. The Rams should dump Jake Long, and replace him with a high draft pick. Collins has great functional strength and can play OT or OG.11. Vikings - Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama - The Vikings finished 20th in points scored, 27th in total yards. They simply failed to do much through the air. On defense, they 11th in points allowed, 14th in total yards. Cooper is an absolute steal here. There's no way he should be here, but it might shake out that way.
13. Saints - Brandon Scherff, OG/OT, Iowa - The Saints finished 9th in points scored, 1st in total yards. Their offense can still move the ball. On defense, they were 28th in points allowed, 31st in total yards allowed. The Saints have bigger needs than addressing their O-Line, but they have to keep Brees in one piece as long as possible. The Outland Trophy winner can play at OG or OT.
14. Dolphins - Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State - The Dolphins were 11th in points scored, 14th in total yards. While their offense was improved, they have holes along their O-line. They also have too much money invested in average WRs. Cuts may happen there if restructuring isn't an option. The defense was 20th in points allowed, 12th in total yards allowed. While they were ranked 6th against the pass, they have issues within their secondary. Cortland Finnegan gave up way too many big plays. Meanwhile, Waynes is the best CB in the draft. After running in the 4.3's at the combine, he's a steal here.
15. 49ers - DeAndre Parker, WR, Louisville - San Fran was 25th in points scored, 20th in total yards. Their rushing attack was lethal, but their passing game ranked 30th. On defense, they were 10th in points allowed, 5th in total yards allowed. Parker had a great year, and has all the skills to be a fine WR in the NFL. He could help this team out in a major way.
16. Texans - Malcolm Brown, DT, Texas - The Texans were 14th in points scored, 17th in total yards. On defense, they were 7th in points allowed, 16th in total yards allowed. The Texans are solid as a whole, so they have options. With Brown on the board here, I think he gets nabbed. He's a player who can slide in at DT or DE in a 3-4.
17. Chargers - Ereck Flowers, OT/OG, Miami - The Chargers were 17th in points scored and 18th in total yards. However, they were 30th in rushing yards, with no ground attack. On defense, they were 14th in points allowed, 9th in total yards. They were 26th in rushing yards allowed. The Chargers should go with a lineman here. Flowers is a beast who dominates at moving bodies.
18. Chiefs - Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State - The Chiefs were 16th in points scored, 25th in total yards, and 29th in passing yards. On defense, they were 2nd in points allowed, yet 29th in rushing yards allowed. Above all, they need a #1 WR. Strong is a physical kid who makes great catches. He also ran and jumped quite well at the combine.
19. Browns (via Bills) - Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma - As stated, the Browns were one of the worst teams last year when it came to points scored. They need WR help, and get it here by taking DGB.
20. Eagles - Marcus Peters, CB, Washington - The Eagles had a very good offense, ranking in the top 10 in passing, rushing, and total yards. On defense, they finished 23rd in points allowed, and 31st in passing yards allowed. They need secondary help. While Peters has had issues with coaches, he is a very good CB who could turn things around.
21. Bengals - Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State - The Bengals were 21st in passing yards, and were 6th in rushing. On defense, they were 22nd in yards allowed, ranking 20th against the run and pass. Outside of Carlos Dunlap, this team struggled to create sacks. Goldman can eat up blocks and free others to create pressure.
22. Steelers - Landon Collins, S, Alabama - The Steelers were 7th in points scored, 2nd in total yards. On defense, they were 27th against the pass. Considering the Safety situation in Pittsburgh, Collins is a blessing here.
23. Lions - Jordan Phillips, NT, Oklahoma - The Lions moved the ball through the air, but were 28th in rushing yards. On defense, they were the very best team against the run, and 3rd in points allowed. A big reason they were so stout on defense was Suh. If Suh or Fairley walk, one leaves a huge void. Phillips is raw, but he demands double teams as is very tough to move.
24. Cardinals - T.J. Clemmings, OT/OG, Pittsburgh - The Cards were 31st in rushing yards. On defense, they were 29th in passing yards allowed. Their pass defense is horrible because they have zero edge rushers. The Cards also have FAs on the O-Line. Clemmings can start Day 1 at RT or one of their OG spots.
25. Panthers - D.J. Humphries, OT, Florida - The Panthers had a solid offense, but their O-Line isn't strong. Cam needs better protection. Humphries is a bit of a reach here, but could end up being one of the best OT's from this draft class.
26. Ravens - Shaq Thompson, OLB/S, Washington - The Ravens were solid in pretty much every aspect of play, but their secondary struggled at times. They could reach for a Safety here, or target a LB. Thompson can play at either spot, so this selection is perfect.
27. Broncos - Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia - The Broncos were great on both sides of the ball, but they didn't have a 1,000 yard rusher. That ends if/when they draft Gurley. Even if not healthy Day 1, he's worth it here.
28. Cowboys - Erik Armstead, DE/DT, Oregon - The Cowboys don't have any glaring issues, other than the fact that they'll have to take care of their impending free agents. One spot they could use some help is along their D-Line. Armstead is a huge kid who can play at DE or DT. He has great value here.
29. Colts - Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin - The Colts were 1st in passing yards, but 22nd in rushing yards. Trent Richardson is now on special teams, and their other backs are nothing special. Gordon can be special on this team.
30. Packers - Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State - The Packers are solid throughout, but they were 23rd against the run, and were ranked almost at the bottom early in the season. McKinney is a great athlete who can play any LB spot for them. Hawk was just released, so this pick makes sense.
31. Seahawks - Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota - The Seahawks were 27th in passing yards. Wilson needs better targets. While Luke Wilson is a decent TE, Williams would be an upgrade.He's a bit of a reach here, but justified.
32. Patriots - Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford - The Patriots are a great team, so they could go anywhere here. Peat lacks anchor strength as a pass blocker, but he has a big lower half and can create run lanes.
