What's up guys this is my first ever attempt at a 4 round mock, with explanations for ever single pick. If you don't want to/have the time to read through it, team draft summary is at the bottom.

*PLEASE don't just comment "bad pick for ___" or "____ instead of ___." Because even though you like the team, you have no idea who they'll pick. Nobody does. Just because you don't like the value or the position of the player, doesn't mean the team doesn't. The Draft is full of shockers and surprises! So when commenting, give me reason! Thanks

Round 1
1. Browns: Myles Garrett, DE
Myles Garrett is, and has been the #1 pick for some time now. Cleveland gets a perennial All-Pro if things go as expected. He'll slide right in with Shelton and Ogbah to crest a young and dangerous defensive line.

2. 49ers: Solomon Thomas, DE
This pick could go many different ways. The Panthers have been rumored to like Thomas/Fournette in a trade up attempt, but I don't think Carolina would make such a move. Instead, the 49ers stay put and pick up the best edge rusher on the board. They can move him to DE, OLB, maybe even DT if needed.

3. Bears: Jamal Adams, SS
The Bears could also be a trade up destination for a team such as Carolina or NYJ, but they stay put as well. Adams is the best safety prospect in this draft and will slide in and start day one.

4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, RB
This is one of the few no brained picks if he's here. The Jaguars filled in their DE/CB/S needs in free agency for the most part. Fournette can be a game changer if the Jaguars get him help up front. Leonard can thank Zeke for his positions draft resurgence.

5. Titans: Marshon Lattimore, CB
The Titans have their pick of best DB or receiver here. I've heard/read multiple things about Lattimore being the Titans "guy" and it would be a great pick. Lattimore has the size and stamina to keep up with teams WR1 and be a true lockdown corner across from Logan Ryan.

6. Jets: Mitch Trubisky, QB
The Jets see all the best defensive players off the board, and with no team needing to trade up, they pick the (hopefully) QB of the future. They've worked him out and have done their homework on him. I believe Petty will be released before the season starts, McCown will start week 1, and Hack/Mitch get playing time in what should be a lost year. Much like Goff in LA last season, a young QB could prolong a head coaches tenure.

7. Chargers: Malik Hooker, FS
Much like the Titans with Lattimore, Hooker has been heavily linked to the Chargers. It makes sense, as he could be plugged in once fully healthy and finally fill in the hole left by Eric Weddle. Hooker will be a nice compliment to and already outstanding/growing defense.

8. Panthers: Derek Barnett, DE
Carolina could go a number of ways with this pick. If they don't trade up, Barnett could be the pick if one of the top DB's doesn't fall. They traded Ealy, and their top 2 DE's (Peppers/Johnson) are ancient. McCaffrey will be considered, but it's just too early for him.

9. Bengals: Jonathan Allen, DT
Jonathan Allen's "fall" ends in Cincy, where he will be tasked with playing DT and DE. The Bengals let Peko walk, and Allen is frequently compared to his new teammate Geno Atkins, so it makes sense. Allen could even go as high as 3 or 4.

10. Bills: Reuben Foster, ILB
Buffalo has been linked to a WR like Williams or Davis, or even a TE like Howard. The Bills believe they have their WR2 already on their roster, so they pick the LB to replace Zach Brown. He can be placed next to Reggie Ragland and form a nice duo at LB.

11. Saints: Taco Charlton, DE
The Saints have made it known they want to go DL here. Charlton and McKinnley are in contention here but Taco is the overall better prospect. He can form a nice line alongside Jordan/Fairley/Rankins in this rebuilding defense.

12. Browns: Deshaun Watson, QB
I have a feeling the Browns aren't inclined to go QB here, but they're going into next season with virtually Kessler as their only QB. Watson has a bright future and can be used to his full potential with Hue Jackson. CB is a need, but it's a deep draft.

13. Cardinals: Gareon Conley, CB
Arizona can go for any position on defense at this pick, and even WR. The Cardinals are in dire need of a CB to line up across from Patrick Peterson and Conley is that guy.

14. Eagles: Hassan Reddick, OLB
The Eagles are a team without a lot of needs and could benefit a lot from trading down. I believe they could trade down with the Broncos, who want McCaffrey bad, but I'm not projecting trades in this mock. Reddick is an athletic, fast rising LB that could be a good fit in Philly on a young, growing team.

15. Colts: Garrett Bolles, OT
O-Line isn't necessarily their biggest need, but with the defensive talent drying up, they decide it's time to help Andrew Luck out and off his back the whole game. Keeping the franchise healthy is key.

16. Ravens: Mike Williams, WR
After losing Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken, the Ravens receiving corps is looking as thin as any in the league. Williams is a nice, big target for Flacco to throw it up to and should get plenty of red zone targets. He's a nice compliment to speedsters Perriman and Wallace.

17. Redskins: Takk McKinnley, DE
Washington is another team with not many needs. I hate them, but they had a successful free agency in my eyes, but still need some pass rushers. McKinnley has a lot of talent, but his injury has been rumored to affect his draft stock. Washington can be patient in getting him back to 100%, if they even need to.

18. Titans: OJ Howard, TE
No brainer for the Titans if he's still here. Howard is a matchup nightmare, and if he's placed in this offense with Walker and this running game, watch out. He could go as high as 4 to the Jaguars, but the need for a TE isn't as high as the need for a quality EDGE, RB, DB, etc.

19. Buccaneers: Corey Davis, WR
Tampa added Desean Jackson in free agency, have Mike Evans, and Adam Humphries in the fold for Jameis. The Bucs are pretty solid in almost every position, and a game breaking WR could help and already impressive group and lift Jameis to the next level.

20. Broncos: Christian McCaffrey, RB
Denver has been linked to McCaffrey through the draft process. He can play RB, slot, KR, PR and be a nice compliment to CJ Anderson, and take this offense to the next level.

21. Lions: Jabrill Peppers, SS
Charles Harris seems to be the favorite at this spot, which is why it won't happen. The Lions desperately need a LB and Safety, so why not get someone who could do both? The Lions keep Peppers in state and he's ready to play right away.

22. Dolphins: Forrest Lamp, OG
With the Brandon Albert trade, the Dolphins will move Tunsil to LT, leaving a hole at LG. Insert Lamp, who can be a great starter in this league and won't take any time to adjust to the next level.

23. Giants: David Njoku, TE
The Giants are tempted to pick up someone like Ramczyk here, but the chance to add a receiver with great blocking skills to an already dangerous offense is too good to pass up. Njoku has expressed interest in playing here as well. The Giants are giving Eli all the help he needs, because their Super Bowl window is closing.

24. Raiders: Zach Cunningham, ILB
Oakland has made it known they're looking defense early in the draft, and they're in desperate need for a playmaking LB. He may have some tackling issues, but the upside and value here is great.

25. Texans: Patrick Mahomes, QB
The Texans couldn't get Romo, and regardless of what Bill O'Brien says, they need a QB. They have their choice of Mahomes and Kizer, but Kizer is more of a project and won't be ready when/if they need him this year. Mahomes downfield accuracy is perfect for players like Hopkins and Fuller.

26. Seahawks: Kevin King, CB
Richard Sherman is on the trade block, and even if he isn't traded they still need a CB2. King has been rising recently and is a great option for the Legion of Boom. Ramczyk and Cam Robinson are options, but I believe Pete Carroll when he says he liked his O-line that improved as the year went on.

27. Chiefs: Deshone Kizer, QB
The Chiefs are just about there in terms of roster strength on paper. They could use an ILB like Davis or corner like Humphrey, but Alex Smith has maybe a year or 2 left. Kizer can molded into exactly what Andy Reid wants.

28. Cowboys: Obi Melifonwu, SS
Dallas needs DB's after losing 2 corners and 2 safety's in free agency. Last time an athletic UCONN safety came out, the Cowboys picked him in round 1. Obi will start alongside former teammate Byron Jones, assuming he doesn't go even higher.

29. Packers: Marlon Humphrey, CB
Watching the Packers attempt at guarding the Falcons in the NFC Championship was embarrassing. Adding House back and drafting Humphrey is a step in the right direction. Rodgers needs more help on defense to contend.

30. Steelers: Carl Lawson, OLB
Pittsburgh's defense improved drastically in just one year, a complete turnaround. Their early investment in defensive backs last year paid off, and now it's time to address the LB's. Lawson can play edge as well and put pressure on the QB.

31. Falcons: Dan Feeney, OG
Another slight surprise in the first round. Falcons fans will likely want a pass rusher, but with Chris Chester retiring, Feeney is a necessary replacement. The Falcons will do all they can to make sure this offense doesn't miss a beat after losing Kyle Shanahan.

32. Saints: Dalvin Cook, RB
This pick is widely expected to be a CB, but they see Cook still sitting their (due to character and injury concerns) and bounce on him. The Saints are showing interest in Mixon and Adrian Peterson, so they're obviously in the RB market. Their next pick is only 10 spots away, so a good CB should still be available.

Round 2
33. Browns: Quincy Wilson, CB
Cleveland already filled their DE and QB needs, and Wilson could form a formidable duo with Joe Haden. Wilson is a borderline 1st round prospect.

34. 49ers: Ryan Ramczyk, OT
The 49ers continue to build both sides of their line. Thomas was a good addition Day 1, and the value with Ramczyk still here is too good to pass up.

35. Jaguars: Cam Robinson, OT
The Jaguars could go with a TE like Evan Engram here, but Robinson is a raw talent that'll likely play guard for them, at least to start out. If they want Fournette to succeed they should give him the right O-line to do it.

36. Bears: Charles Harris, OLB
The Bears offense can hold off for another round. Charles Harris could go as high as #11, but falls to the early second. He can move from DE to OLB and make a dynamic duo with Leonard Floyd.

37. Rams: Zay Jones, WR
The Rams improved their Offensive Line in free agency, so they can make improvements in the WR corps to help Goff out. John Ross is available but they have the same guy in Tavon Austin. Zay Jones is an all around receiver that can lead an offense and replace Kenny Britt.

38. Chargers: TJ Watt, OLB
San Diego filled the safety hole in round one, so they pick up Watt to help out on the edge. Watt will join Ingram and Bosa on the defensive side of the ball, and join his brother Derek Watt.

39. Jets: Chidobe Awuzie, CB
New York has a big need for a CB and after passing on one in round one, they fill it here. Awuzie is another potential 1st rounder who is startable away and can become a lockdown corner in the future.

40. Panthers: John Ross, WR
John Ross broke the 40 yard dash record back in February, but injury concerns and the lack of positional need push him down to the second round. Ross is the perfect replacement for Tedd Ginn Jr, and represents an upgrade as well.

41. Bengals: Joe Mixon, RB
Cincy is rumored to have a ton of interest in Mixon, and adding a RB in general. Adding him to a RB group of Bernard/Hill, and "replacing" Burkhead would be an ideal situation for the Bengals.

42. Saints: Tre'Davious White, CB
As mentioned at #32, the Saints are able to land a starting caliber corner in the second. White is kept in-state and adds to an impressive haul of Charlton/Cook.

43. Eagles: Fabian Moreau, CB
Passing on CB in round one and going with Reddick seems like a pretty good idea now. Moreau will strengthen this defense, and isn't much worse than what they couldn't gotten at #14. He should be just fine health-wise in time for the season.

44. Bills: Chris Godwin, WR
This hurts for the Bills. Seeing players like Awuzie, Ross, White, and Moreau go right before them will sting. They're a candidate to trade up for one of the 4, but if they stay, I think they decide to go WR given the board.

45. Cardinals: Jarrad Davis, ILB
Arizona continues to build up the defense and replace Kevin Minter with Jarrad Davis. Davis could go ILB or OLB. The Cardinals can now turn their focus to offense.

46. Vikings: Tyus Bowser, OLB
Minnesota is almost their on paper. Adding Murray at RB was huge, so they can look elsewhere with their first pick. Bowser will replace Chad Greenway, and could go much higher than this.

47. Ravens: Jordan Willis, DE
Baltimore fixed the WR problem (mostly) in round one, so they look to fix the pass rush at 47. Willis and last years second round pick Korrea will be a big upgrade from last season.

48. Colts: Raekwon McMillan, ILB
The Colts added some defenders in Sheard and Spence in free agency and continue to do so in the draft. McMillan is a monster that will step in right away and could become a pro bowl player immediately. He'll fill in for the released D'Qwell Jackson.

49. Redskins: D'onta Foreman, RB
Fat Rob isn't going anywhere, and Chris Thompson is their pas catching back. They added Brian Quick and Terrelle Pryor in free agency and pick up Foreman to be a nice compliment to Kelly as they look to improve this offense even more.

50. Buccaneers: Budda Baker, S
Tampa Bay let McDougald walk in free agency and select Baker to take his spot. The secondary was a weak spot for them last year, and they need to make smart picks to push them over the edge and into the playoffs. Baker seems like a safe pick that should work out.

51. Broncos: Malik McDowell, DT
Denver signed Peko to play at DT, but he essentially replaced Silvester Williams, and they needed a DT before he left anyways. McDowell can also move to DE if needed and is an impressive run stuffer.

52. Browns: Evan Engram, TE
Cleveland draft haul is now up to Garrett/Trubisky/Wilson, and now Engram. They're filling holes left and right and now pick up a 4th potential starter. Engram is a first rounder in a normal TE class, but as we all know, this class isn't.

53. Lions: Caleb Brantley, DT
The Lions have met with Brantley and have told him they've been hurting since they lost Suh and want a dog up front. Brantley can do just that, and team up with last years A'Shawn Robinson to improve the line.

54. Dolphins: Tim Williams, DE
Tim Williams has had some character issues in the past, but has been clean as of late. I'm not sure if they take him based off of the Dion Jordan situation they went through, but if they do, it's a great pick. Williams is an outstanding player who can play both OLB and DE, two places of need for them. The talent is too good to pass up.

55. Giants: Dion Dawkins, OT
Some view Dawkins as more of a guard, but the Giants might think they could move him to tackle, pull Flowers inside to OG with Pugh, and make something happen. Dawkins will likely battle it out with free agent pickup DJ Fluker to start.

56. Raiders: Adoree' Jackson, CB
The Raiders will continue to build this defense into the later rounds. Jackson can help their CB group and add athleticism. He won't be needed too much as a returner with the signing of Patterson, but that's not what he's here for anyways.

57. Texans: Pat Elflein, OG
Houston got their future QB in round one and make sure he stays upright in round 2. Elflein can play center, but with Nick Martin coming in this season after an injury, Pat will be placed at OG to start out.

58. Seahawks: Ethan Pocic, OG
Pocic is the best center available in this draft. Since the Unger trade, Seattle has been hurting for someone to snap the ball to Wilson. Seattle starts this draft out on the right track with 2 day one starters.

59. Chiefs: Cordrea Tankersly, CB
Kansas City can basically call it a day after the first round. Love their roster, but CB is one of their biggest weaknesses remaining. Tankersly seems to be gaining momentum and could go as high as top 35.

60. Cowboys: Tarell Basham, DE
As a Cowboys fan, I'd like to see a CB here, but Tank and Jackson were just picked. Trading up is possible. If not, they've met with Basham already and he can improve the defensive line and provide a pass rush.

61. Packers: Alvin Kamara, RB
Getting Michael back and switching Montgomery to RB full time was a step in the right direction. The Packers are still in dire need for a difference maker at RB and Kamara is the guy after testing well.

62. Steelers: Davis Webb, QB
Pittsburgh has been rumored to like Davis Webb a lot. After 4 QB's go in round 1, only 1 goes in round 2. The Steelers know Landry Jones probably isn't the answer after Big Ben. Webb very well could be.

63. Falcons: Ryan Anderson, OLB
Atlanta has a big need for an edge rusher and they go to Anderson here to fill it. They picked up Poe in free agency and are looking very good as they attempt to repeat as NFC Champs.

64. Panthers: Josh Jones, SS
An update on the Panthers draft- Barnett/Ross and now Jones... looks pretty good to me. The Panthers don't have any young answers at safety, so Jones makes the short drive over to Charlotte to join his new team. He should see playing time rather early.

Round 3
65. Browns: Curtis Samuel, RB
Cleveland has checked off almost all of the boxes so far this draft. Adding Curtis Samuel to the mix at RB/WR would greatly help this offense. I know they have a similar player in Duke Johnson, but Samuel is more dynamic and really be something special.

66. 49ers: Jourdan Lewis, CB
The 49ers have one of the worst secondaries in the league. Lewis has been involved in some domestic violence issues recently, which pushes him down to round 2. I think he's clean and would be a great pick here.

67. Bears: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR
Chicago has the worst WR group in the NFL in my opinion. JuJu is very similar to Alshon Jeffery, and could be relied heavily upon right out of the gate.

68. Jaguars: Gerald Everett, TE
The Jaguars make it a point that this is an offensive draft for them. They went defensive heavy last year and this year in free agency, so it's time to give Blake Bortles some help. Everett will compete with newly signed Michael Rivera to be the starter.

69. Rams: Justin Evans, FS
The Rams secondary has been weak since the day they lost Janoris Jenkins. They're set to lose multiple DB's and we're weak at the position anyways. Evans could go in the second round and would be a good value pick here.

70. Jets: Marcus Maye, S
New York knows it's secondary needs more help than just one pick. In comes Maye, who will join Tankersly as the saviors of this weak DB unit.

71. Chargers: Taylor Moton, OT
Philip Rivers' days are numbered, and they need to keep his head on him if they want to preserve their franchise QB. Moton has been viewed as an OT or OG, and I think it depends on the Chargers preference, not every team is the same.

72. Patriots: Sidney Jones IV, CB
New England essentially got King Ealy at 64, and with this extra pick, they decide the Sidney Jones reward far exceeds the risk this late. Jones might have to replace Malcolm Butler eventually.

73. Bengals: Cooper Kupp, WR
Cincinnati used a pick on Tyler Boyd last year and already have AJ Green, but WR is still a big need position. Kupp is dynamic, but also works as a possession receiver if needed.

74. Ravens: Montravius Adams, DT
The Ravens received this pick in the Timmy Jernigan trade, so it makes sense they use this pick to replace him straight up. Adams is a monster that can stop the run and be a difference maker rather early.

75. Bills: Rasul Douglas, CB
The Bills finally find a good spot to pick up a Stephon Gilmore replacement. Douglas is a good value, low risk player that'll fit in nicely in Buffalo.

76. Saints: Nathan Peterman, QB
The Saints have filled in plenty of needs with their plethora of early selections. They now get their choice of a young QB to groom behind Drew Brees, because Daniel and Grayson don't seem to be the answers.

77. Cardinals: Brad Kaaya, QB
The Cardinals want to wait another round for a QB, but seeing Peterman go one pick before them pressures them to pull the trigger. Kaaya will need some work, but his deep ball is flashy and Bruce Arians can mold him for a year or two.

78. Ravens: Teez Tabor, CB
Tabor seemed like a first round lock earlier in the year, but has tested and interviewed poorly. Something tells me his raw talent at this stage in the draft makes up for all of that. Baltimore could use a young corner.

79. Vikings: Antonio Garcia, OT
The Vikings spent some serious money on the O-line in free agency, but they still have holes. And even if you think they're set, you know how badly the injury bug likes to hit the Vikings.

80. Colts: Cameron Sutton, CB
Colts draft board should just say O-Line, Defense. Check both of those boxes and they're good to go. Sutton might be a bit early here but corners are flying off the board and Indy could really use one.

81. Redskins: Desmond King, DB
Washington had a lot of secondary issues last year. Expect Breeland to bounce back, and King to join him if he's available. King could end up starting at safety once Hall retires.

82. Broncos: Anthony Walker, ILB
Denver was awful against the run last year. Anthony Walker could help them solve those issues if he's still available at this point.

83. Titans: Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE
Tanoh is gaining steam heading into the draft and could slide into the back end of the second. I think the Titans would bounce on the chance to add the athletic DE from a small football school.

84. Buccaneers: Kareem Hunt, RB
Tampa had the chance to pick up Cook or McCaffrey in the first, but I've been reading a lot that the Bucs don't want a RB too early and like who they have. Makes sense if/when they bring back Doug Martin. Hunt can be a reliable back with Martin/Rodgers/Barber.

85. Lions: Adam Shaheen, TE
Reports are out saying the Lions are looking for another TE to pair with Eric Ebron (or eventually take over) and Shaheen could be the guy. His tape is outstanding, and some have compared him to a Gronk-like player. Let's see if that translates to the big leagues.

86. Vikings: Jamaal Williams, RB
Adding Murray was a good move, but I'm not sold on Asiata and McKinnon and as backups. Williams would form a great duo with Murray and can do it all.

87. Giants: Elijah Lee, LB
The Giants need a LB in the worst way, but they almost never pick a LB in round one, but they'd be happy to take one a little later. Lee is an attractive option here for them.

88. Raiders: Demarcus Walker, DL
Nothing new here. Defense defense defense. The Raiders D-line isn't bad, but Walker can make them pretty good, which sounds a lot better to me.

89. Texans: Ahkello Witherspoon, CB
Houston lost Buoye in free agency, Jonathan Joseph is aging, and they needed one anyways. Witherspoon is a very talented corner who will be relied on early in his career.

90. Seahawks: Joe Mathis, EDGE
Seattle is in position to pick the BPA at this point in the draft. Mathis stays in state to provide more pass rush to an already talented group.

91. Chiefs: Carlos Henderson, WR
Kansas City is still searching for an ILB in the draft, but haven't seen one worth the selection up to this point. Henderson is a very underrated receiver that fit in with the Maclin/Hill/Conley/Kelce group.

92. Cowboys: Howard Wilson, CB
Dallas is rebuilding this defense and now the [inappropriate/removed] moves back to the secondary. Another player I think is more of a 4th rounder, but need and the fact the position is being thinned quickly move him up.

93. Packers: Larry Ogunjobi, DT
Green Bay always seems to spend a decently high pick on a D-Lineman, so why stop now? He can replace Datong Jones who left for Minnesota.

94. Steelers: Marcus Williams, FS
Safety isn't a huge need, with Sean David and Mike Mitchell holding down both spots. But Mitchell is aging, and Pittsburgh can be flexible with Williams and move him around.

95. Falcons: Derek Rivers, DE
The Falcons are excited to see Rivers still on the board. He could even be a target for them in the 1st, and they quickly snatch him up here, even after adding Anderson in the second already.

96. Patriots: Elijah Qualls, DT
The Patriots add another piece to the D-Line, after "losing" Chris Long and Jabaal Sheard. Qualls is strong and seems like a Patriots kind of player.

97. Dolphins: Chris Wormley, DE
The Dolphins apparently love Chris Wormley from what I read. Although, they don't expect him in the 3rd. This will likely move Tim Williams to OLB full time.

98. Panthers: Jake Butt, TE
The Panthers are successfully filling holes left and right. With Greg Olsen one of the best TE's, but getting older, why not get his eventual replacement? Butt was the #1 TE in this class before his unfortunate injury.

99. Eagles: Taywan Taylor, WR
The Eagles signed Jeffery and Smith this offseason, and they're still interested in adding more weapons. Taylor can come in and be the #3 or #4 WR, because I expect Mathews and/or Agholor to be gone soon.

100. Titans: Dede Westbrook, WR
The Titans are in desperate need for a WR, and even after adding a receiver in OJ Howard Dede is an amazing deal this late. He's a deep threat and compliments Rishard Matthews nicely.

101. Broncos: Bucky Hodges, TE
Denver has invested in Jeff Heurman as a young TE option, but he hasn't panned out so well. Virgil Green isn't a great option, so they pick Bucky Hodges's to strengthen the group.

102. Seahawks: Eddie Jackson, S
Much like the Patriots, the Seahawks are in the position to draft an injured DB and wait on him. The Seahawks surprisingly go defensive heavy to start out, anticipating some of their current players demanding big contracts soon. Jackson was a 1st/2nd rounder before the injury.

103. Saints: Duke Riley, LB
New Orleans added Te'o and Klein in free agency, but that's not enough to fix this defense. Adding Riley gives them another LB to add to that suddenly solid group.

104. Chiefs: Samaje Perine, RB
Jamaal Charles is a free agent and is unlikely to return, and their current RB group is iffy. West and Ware are good, but are they enough to carry them deep into the playoffs? We saw Perine's college career, he's the real deal.

105. Steelers: Jordan Leggett, TE
Ladarius Green hasn't had the best luck staying healthy for the Steelers, and Jesse James is a good, not great option, Leggett is a good receiver, and could learn quickly. I've heard some motivational issues from Leggett, but Mike Tomlin is a good motivator.

106. Seahawks: KD Cannon, WR
Seattle doesn't have many needs, but their WR's always seem to be missing something. Cannon is a dynamic receiver that can fill in for Lockett until he comes back from that leg injury.

107. Jets: Isaiah Ford, WR
Brandon Marshall is switching locker rooms, and Robby Anderson is facing a suspension. Ford is an exciting and underrated player that could see play time quickly.

Round 4
108. Browns: Xavier Woods, S
Cleveland decides to take care of the safety position at the top of the fourth with one of my favorite players in the draft. Woods could be a steal in the fourth round.

109. 49ers: George Kittle, TE
Kittle has been rising lately like some anticipated, he tests well and his tape is impressive. He'll add an already pretty strong TE group.

110. Jaguars: Damontae Kazee, CB
The depth behind Buoye and Ramsey isn't great. They lost Gratz, House, and Amukamara, and if Kazee impresses, he could see himself as the CB3.

111. Bears: Dorian Johnson, DT
The Bears released Ego Ferguson and don't have many young options invested at the DT position, Johnson could be a play maker if given the play time.

112. Rams: Roderick Johnson, OT
Andrew Whitworth and John Sullivan were good starts, but Johnson would be the cherry on top. He could come in as a backup tackle, maybe even guard.

113. Chargers: Chad Hansen, WR
Keenan Allen hasn't played a full season in forever, and the Chargers struggled when they had to rely on Inman and Williams. Hansen was a monster at California and his tape should get the Chargers excited.

114. Redskins: Alex Anzalone, LB
Washingtons linebacker group is arguably their biggest weakness. Anzalone would be a nice reliable rotational player.

115. Panthers: Aaron Jones, RB
Aaron Jones is one of my favorite players in this draft. Playing in a smaller school, he dominated the competition and he has the characteristics to do the same in the NFL. Carolina could use another RB to pair with Stewart.

116. Bengals: Shaquill Griffin, CB
Cincinnati has good depth at corner, especially with WJ3 making his debut this year. Griffin will solidify this group and could be a steal this late.

117. Bears: Jalen Myrick, CB
The Bears add another weapon to the secondary. Myrick is incredibly fast and has above average ball skills.

118. Eagles: James Conner, RB
The Eagles are rumored to really like Conner, and it makes sense. Conner had a very good career at Pittsburgh and would receive plenty of snaps in Philadelphia.

119. Cardinals: Devonte Fields, DE
Arizona needs depth at almost every defensive position. Fields will likely be a rotational end to start out and could gain playing time if he impresses.

120. Vikings: Ryan Switzer, WR
Last years first rounder Laquon Treadwell only got one catch last year. Charles Johnson signed with the Panthers, and Cordarrelle Patterson signed Oakland. Switzer was a weapon at UNC and was a big reason for Mitch Trubisky's success.

121. Colts: Jaleel Johnson, DT
The Colts released Arthur Jones so DT could be a need for the Colts near the middle rounds of the draft. Johnson is a big body that can do it all.

122. Ravens: Conor McDermott, OT
Baltimore lost Rick Wagner to the Lions and were already struggling at the position. McDermott isn't far away from being able to start across from Ronnie Stanley if he needs to.

123. Redskins: Vincent Taylor, DT
Adding McGee and McClain were good, but not enough to replace Chris Baker. Taylor would be a nice add to that retooling D-Line, joining Takk.

124. Titans: Jaylen Reeves-Maybin, LB
Before the season, I liked Maybin as a potential 1st or 2nd round pick. He's slipped a bit since then, but could be a different maker on a Titans defense that needs to improve to make the playoffs.

125. Buccaneers: Dalvin Tomlinson, DT
DT isn't a huge need for Tampa Bay, but McCoy struggles with injuries, and Tomlinson has been able to stay on the field during his college career.

126. Broncos: Tyler Orlosky, OT
Broncos fans might not be too happy to see them address the O-Line so late, but Orlosky isn't a bad option in the 4th. He could challenge for one of the Tackle spots.

127. Lions: Paul Magloire, LB
Detroit needs an athletic linebacker, and Magloire fits what they're looking for perfectly. Expect him to get plenty of playing time if he ends up in Detroit.

128. Vikings: Damien Mama, OG
The Vikings will do whatever it takes to forget last seasons nightmare. Adding pieces to the line and adding Murray will fix this offense.

129. Raiders: Michael Roberts, TE
They signed Cook, but I'm not sold on Walford as the backup option. Roberts will take over for Rivera, and maybe work his way up.

130. Texans: Tedric Thompson, FS
Houston has a weak secondary and after adding his teammate Witherspoon, Thompson will come in at FS and keep the train on the tracks.

131. Patriots: Marlon Mack, RB
The Patriots addressed some defensive needs earlier, so they draft Mack to help out the offense. Lewis/Burkhead/White/Mack is a solid group to have.

132. Chiefs: Steven Taylor, ILB
Taylor is an exciting player to watch, he's almost always where the ball is. He fits in with the Chiefs defense and could end up starting when Johnson retires.

133. Cowboys: Dawuane Smoot, EDGE
Smoot is exactly what the Cowboys need. His talent is putting pressure on the QB, and the fact he's still around is a great thing for Dallas. Smoot will see the field a ton his rookie year with Dallas.

134. Packers: Jermaine Eluemunor, OT
The Packers line improved a lot in 2016, but to make sure it doesn't fall apart again, they need to add more pieces to the puzzle.

135. Steelers: Brian Hill, RB
DeAngelo Williams is still a free agent and they just released Karlos Williams not to long ago. Hill can spell Le'veon Bell in the run game and play some special teams.

136. Falcons: Corn Elder, CB
I personally like the Falcons corners, but they already addressed their need positions. Elder will play behind Trufant/Alford/Collins.

137. Colts: Wayne Galman, RB
Frank Gore won't last forever, so they need to look at their options in the draft. Galman is a winner that could replace Gore when the time comes.

138. Bengals: David Sharpe, OT
They lost a lot of their line in free agency, but they still have Fisher and Ogbuehi. Sharpe will add depth to the line and could end up starting down the line.

139. Eagles: Marquez White, CB
It would be wise of the Eagles to double up on the CB position, their biggest position of need. White is an athletic corner that adds depth.

140. Giants: Joshua Dobbs, QB
The Giants need to start looking for the QB of the future. Geno Smith was a solid signing, but he's not the answer. I believe Dobbs could be given the time.

141. Rams: Carlos Watkins, DT
LA doesn't necessarily need a DT, but the value is too good. Watkins rotating in next to Aaron Donald could be nasty.

142. Texans: Kendell Beckwith, LB
Simon left for the Colts in free agency, so Beckwith would be his direct replacement.

143. 49ers: Malachi Dupree, WR
Adding Garšon and Goodwin was a good start, but Dupree is a rare talent that fits in nicely here.

144. Colts: Montae Nicholson, S
The Colts lost Mike Adams to the Panthers in free agency, so they have a hole there. Nicholson is a great athlete that can heal that wound.

My only major complaint is not drafting a pass rusher. I know it's hard to cover all the Colts' needs in one draft but thats probably our biggest one.

Nice effort.

Kupp will probably be a good receiver, but no thank you. He is a slot guy and we are good there. We need outside speed.

Give the Rams Ross because if we are talking about McVay offense, remember the Redskins had both D-Jax (5'10)and Crowder (5'9). He used them in very different ways to make the offense work as far as the passing game went. Having Tavon and Ross wouldn't be a bad thing. Plus it wouldn't shock me if the Rams would go grab a big receiver like JuJu in the 3rd round or even trade up into the back half of the 2nd to grab him if need be.

As long as Dede is a good boy then this is perfect! Got the Titans Stamp of approval.

Love the first two picks but consider Gerald Everett over Tankersley. Henderson is not bad in a vacuum, but Wormley, Qualls and Ogunjobi are sitting there. Take Ogunjobi.
Likewise, take Leggett (or Kittle) over Perine onless you grabbed Everett in round 2.
If you cannot get an ILB in the first two rounds, take it off the need list. Taylor is a fair value in the 4th, but go with BPA even if it doubles up a position, such as Dobbs or Watkins.

Atlanta Falcons
Dan Feeney / OG
Ryan Anderson / OLB
Derek Rivers / DE
Corn Elder / CB

Dang good effort on the 4 rounder this time around bro and truthfully we got some good players overall. Im not against Feeney in the 1st round and truthfully i would have been happy with Rivers or Watt in the 1st round. Rivers is gonna be a stud and if were lucky enough to get him at 31 in the real draft i'll be thrilled.

Now im not as big on Anderson as most people even more so since we got rivers. I don't think anderson can a versatile OLB like we need as i don't see him dropping in coverage at the next level. But still i can see the thought process behind Anderson and finishing our D-line completely and have our edge rush group set for the long haul and the future with Him, Clayborne, Beasley, and Rivers. + Brooks Reed and Derrick Shelby.

Thats a ton of pass rushers from the DE and SLB positions in our scheme.

Now as for the really only bad puck you made in the draft it's in the 4th round in Corn. The problem here is you made a pick of a position we have 0 need for and you forgot one of our best Cb's last year and was on the all rookie team in Brian Poole. He was an AMAZING NB for us and will dang sure be our 4th CB behind Trufant, alford, and collins. CJ. Goodwin was pretty dang good last year as well even more so in the playoffs he stepped up big time. We have 2 more Cb's that are ok depth but nothing great but still they are #5 and 6 on the chart and really don't get much time on the field.

The problem here to me is you said we don't have any more needs but completely left off like 3 other needs and 1 of them is pretty big.

We need a talented FS to upgrade Rico as he was our weak link back there and we have been looking at quite a few FS in this draft this offseason.

You cold have also went with a versatile LB to help depth at WLB and MLB. You could have went with a Power RB to be our 3rd RB and short yardage guy since we let Ware go. You could have also went with a TE although that would be my last choice as i like Hooper, Toiollo, and Perkins as a TE group. But still would be better than CB.

Here is how i would have drafted in each round based on who was there and who i think wouldn't have dropped any further in the real draft.

1st - Dan Feeney - RG - Good player no complaints here to much.

2nd - Desmond King - FS - He is possibly the best type of talent we can get four our specific scheme at FS outside of maybe Baker or Williams. Really good value here imo as well.

3rd - Derek Rivers - Edge rusher - I really doubt he makes it here in the 3rd round but im not gonna complain about it Very Happy It's yo draft and value bro im just using your setup for our benefit what luck this would be for us.

4th - Carroll Phillips - Here is a great place to double down on some pass rush help and the funny part is i like him better than Anderson for a much better value.

In the 5th round target a TE and in the 7th target a Power RB. OR you can swap those positions for each round.

Why would you even post something so dumb? You post a draft this to get feedback. If you do a second one feedback from the first would help.

On that note your Browns draft sucks. Any draft giving them Watson with the #12 pick is a straight up fail. No QB in this draft is worth a 1st round pick let along a 2nd round pick and you give Cleveland the worst one. Those of us who are fans of our team have a little bit better idea of who they are going to pick than you.

You should be smart enough to understand the comment, everyone that commented above you did. I clearly meant don't just make a blind comment without any reasoning, because the validity of your comment will be challenged by fans with more knowledge than you. As for the Browns picks, I never said the fans of the teams don't know more than ME. I said the fans as a whole don't know as much as the teams. We're fed second hand information, many smokescreens, misread headlines, etc. which go into what we're told, and ultimately pass on to other fans...

So do I think Watson would be a good pick? No. Have the Browns shown interest in him? Yes. They even asked him to participate in the Senior Bowl. Is Watson completely eliminated from being a possible selection at #12? No. And have the Browns been known to make good picks anyways? Also a no.

That's all.

No way we can pass on Engram if he is there the 2nd.... I think he is an EASY 1st rounder..

LB is not a huge need. OT, OG, DT, RB and CB are all bigger needs.

Carolina Panthers
Derek Barnett / DE
John Ross / WR
Josh Jones / SS
Jake Butt / TE
Aaron Jones / RB

Not really a fan. Don't think the team would be interested in Aaron or Josh Jones. They're big measurable guys which we don't really care about. Panthers also seem to only be interested in big bruising RBs except for maybe McCaffrey, who would be able to double for us as a slot/returner guy.

Ross has too many medical issues that I think it'll scare the team away after being bit by high draft picks like Edmund Kugbila and Frank Alexander.

Jake Butt is fine I guess. Would rather have taken OJ Howard in the first.

This gets a 9/10 for the Bucs. An absolute dream draft either way but instead of adding another DT I would've gone Corn a Elder or Smoot in the 4th. We already added Baker at DT. Now the Bucs need another edge rusher or DB help behind an aging Grimes.

I would absolutely kill for this draft though.

Well done. I would be a fan of trading back if that was how the first round played out, but even though he's pretty raw for such a high pick, I can't be mad at the Takk selection. You hit most of our needs in the other rounds, so yea, good job.

Can't complain for Dallas.

Any draft that has us going defense 4x in 4 rounds is good with me.
