The PLUNGE 2017 Mock Draft #2

1. Cleveland Browns: Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M
Sure the Browns need a quarterback, but they canít go wrong taking the best player in this draft. Garrett is a freak of nature and has all the tools to make a positive impact instantly. He can single handedly change the identity of a defense. The Browns have plenty of draft picks over the next couple of years and look to start rebuilding with Garrett on the defensive side of the ball.

2. San Francisco 49ers: Solomon Thomas DE Stanford
The 49ers take Thomas here in order to solidify their young defense that has been improving. Thomas is an explosive defender who possesses a great combination of strength and quickness. Thomas has a motor that will make it tough on any quarterback. He has all the athletic traits to become a high-impact player and carries more than enough skill and talent to believe he will continue to elevate his game as a pro. Thomas has the potential to become a future all-pro.

3. Chicago Bears: Jamal Adams S LSU
Adams is a physical tone-setter who should thrive near the line of scrimmage in the box. He has some issue in coverage, but that can be fine tuned. SImilar to Landon Collins of the Giants, who also had issues in coverage but turned out to be all defensive team this past season. Adams didn't have the best numbers at the combine but they were good enough and he has great leadership and mentor skills which canít be measured. Adams will help turn this Bears defense around in no time.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Fournette RB LSU
Letís face it. TJ Yeldon isnít going to cut it anymore. The Jaguars and Blake Bortles are hitting their prime and they need a running back to help make them a two dimensional team. Fournette has elite talent and a rare blend of size, speed and power. He can finally help make this Jaguars team a playoff contender.

5. Tennessee Titans: Marshon Lattimore CB Ohio St.
The best talent at his position in this draft class, and the Titans desperate need for a corner fuel this pick. He is average in size, but makes up for it with his quick feet and ball hawking abilities. His lack of experience could show up early, but he has the confidence and competitive nature that should help him overcome those issues.

6. New York Jets: Malik Hooker S Ohio St.
THere is a good chance that the Jets part ways with Gilchrist who suffered a nasty torn patellar tendon last season. Hooker has great instincts that allow him to always be involved in the play. The Jets look to help their secondary with a high impact starter for years to come. One of the hardest workers in this class. He doesnít have a lot of game experience but he that will change very quickly.

7. Los Angeles Chargers: Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama
The Chargers are losing Brandon Flowers and need some help in the secondary. Humphrey is one of the best corners ALabama has produced in a while. He is long, athletic and can run very well. He does not shy away from contact and plays every snap like it's his last. He is a complete defensive back who will have no problem adjusting to the pros.

8. Carolina Panthers: Jonathan Allen DT Alabama
The Panthers signed Julius Peppers this offseason but they also traded Ealy. They need to establish a pass rush again like they had during their super bowl run in 2016. Allen is an elite athlete with an ability to rush the passer from outside or inside using his combination of strength, speed and great footwork. With his big frame, he will be an enforcer at the line to help stop the opposing run game as well. Allen is one of the top pass rushers in this draft class.
9. Cincinnati Bengals: Reuben Foster LB Alabama
This is the pick that almost every analyst is picking here as well. It makes too much sense. The Bengals gave up a whopping 115 rush yards per game last year. They need a linebacker that can hit the point of attack. Foster is a savage hitter with great range and good play recognition. His athleticism allows for coverage as well. There have been some concerns over his medical records and character concerns but the talent is there no doubt.


10. Buffalo Bills: OJ Howard TE Alabama
Is it possible for three Alabama players in a row?! The Bills could take a receiver here but Howard is a better fit. Howard would create many mismatches for defenses and give Tyrod Taylor a big target in the middle of the field. This pick would also allow the Bills to run many two TE sets to go along with one of the best rushing attacks in the league. He has the most raw talent at his position in this draft. He has elite athletic traits and should have no problem transitioning into the pros.

11. New Orleans Saints: Takkarist McKinley DE UCLA

The Saints have massive needs along the defensive front seven and grab Tak McKinley to help rush the quarterback. McKinley is a relentless working with massive amounts of energy and explosion coming off the edge. His overall approach can come off a bit raw, but you combine the athleticism with the amount of energy type plays he makes, this kid comes off as a pretty clean prospect, and there will be a number of coaches very excited to coach Tak up. In a deep cornerback class, the Saints wait a round to address that need and take their pass rusher.

12. Cleveland Browns: Deshaun Watson QB Clemson

The Browns grab their guy Watson with one thing in mind: winning. Because this is the kind of guy they need leading their team on Sundays, a big-time college quarterback who is used to winning like Watson did last year. The inconsistency is there in multiple facets of his game, this is no doubt. And his transition from Clemsonís offense to a pro-style one will take some time, again no doubt. But there is a lot more to like here, especially for the factory of sadness desperately needing a proven, big-time winner running the show.

13. Arizona Cardinals: Mike Williams WR Clemson

The Cards have a ton of needs heading into draft day, losing Calais Campbell and Tony Jefferson, OL worries, and concerns with Larry Fitzgerald and how long heíll be around. They cannot afford to miss at 12; this is going to be a true best player available pick as they could go in a ton of different directions depending on the board. At this point they have their pick of the WR class, and grab the pro-ready Mike Williams to come right in and play from Day 1, and learn from one of the greats while doing so. Heíll be a dominant pass catcher right away and will mesh nicely with the current receiver core in AZ.

14. Philadelphia Eagles: John Ross WR Washington

The Eagles needs by far are at the corner position, but this may be another case where a team waits a round to grab a corner in a deep class for the position and select the best player on the board given their needs in the speedster John Ross. This makes a lot of sense if Ross is still on the board, as Jackson bolted for the Bucs and the Eagles need to get some playmakers to gel with their ascending young QB Carson Wentz. Ross is that guy; this will be an exciting combo to watch for years to come.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Ryan Ramczyk OT Wisconsin

The Colts have a dire need at pass rush, but letís face it, they have a dire need at most places. Andrew Luck has struggled to get completely on the same page with his Offensive Line for some time now, and they grab Ramcyzk here in an effort to shore up those chemistry issues. Ramczyk seems like a classic Wisco OT, with some decent pedigree here producing Ricky Wagner and the great Joe Thomas. Not quite as good as the latter, but Ramczyk will do great things in the run game from day 1 and will continue to improve on the pass pro side.

16. Baltimore Ravens: Dalvin Cook RB Florida State

Ever since Cook entered the draft, it seems as though the media has blasted him one way or the other. And maybe his combine performance wasnít out of this world. But a smart player evaluator like Ozzie Newsome, one of the best in the biz, will definitely look through that noise and focus on the tape, which is pretty unbelievable. Cook dominated for three years in Tallahassee. Heís got the kind of vision and ability that you look for at the position, and the Ravens nab their back for years to come here.

17. Washington Redskins: Malik McDowell DT Michigan State

This kid is a bit of an enigma, no doubt, but he is extremely gifted physically and has the

potential to be truly special. Projections are all over the board on this kid and the draft, and it makes sense. He looks like a pro bowler on one play, and undrafted in the next. There also reports his interviews were pretty rough at the Combine. Nonetheless, it only takes one team, and middle first round could be in play to grab a potentially dominant player, and coaches will attempt to light a fire here to get McDowell close to his ceiling.

18. Tennessee Titans: Corey Davis, WR Western Michigan

What a draft here for the Titans. Davis slips a bit and the Titans are able to grab him here. The Titans have a phenomenal nucleus of players on the offensive side of the ball now to really compete. Davis is dominant after the catch, has great size for the position, and loves the game of football. If Davis is here, I think the Titans run to the podium. He is the kind of player they need at the position.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derek Barnett DE Tennessee

Barnett is a clean prospect that will come right in and help a team on day 1. I think the fact that he hasnít gotten the chance to work out for scouts at full health is disappointing, because his lack of quick twitch and pure explosion is what questions a lot of us. But he was ultra-productive in college with phenomenal technique, and at 19 he is a great get for the Bucs who also have a need at the position.

20. Denver Broncos: Garrett Bolles OT Utah

Bolles is as fluid and light-footed as they come, and despite his age (25 years old) the Broncos make the selection here. I think the Broncos can go a few different ways with this pick, but I donít think they are quite ready to spend a premium pick on a QB, as they wait and see what they have in Lynch and Siemian. Instead, they are very happy to find Bolles still there, and grab their LT of the future to continue to build that offense and get answers about their two young passers.

21. Detroit Lions: Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford

McCaffrey may not be a prototypical running back but his talent is undeniable. He is out to defy the ďwhite guyĒ running back label and just be known as a stud running back. The lions do have Zenner, Abdullah, and Riddick but McCaffrey is too big of a talent here to pass up despite other pressing needs. I think in this spot Christian becomes a top 3 rookie of the year contender.

22. Miami Dolphins: Forrest Lamp G Western Kentucky
After taking Big Old Gas Mask Laremy last year the Fins continue to build their o line and provide a stud line for young running back Jay Ajaiyi. Lamp is widely regarded as the top guard in this class and is a classic mauler up front who can move guys with relative ease. The talent jump for Lamp will be a challenge but his combine performance and measurables do not lie.

23. New York Giants: David Njoku TE Miami

The Giants go back to the old times and draft a stud Miami TE. Njoku has freaky athleticism ala JPP and his upside may even surpass consensus number one OJ Howard. Reese adores these kind of players and with the chance to put the Giants offense on another level, Reese and Benny DooDoo are ecstatic to make this selection.

24. Oakland Raiders: Hasson Riddick LB Temple

The Raiders are ready to get back to the promise land. If not for that David Carr injury last year they were right up there with the Pats for taking the AFC crown. Riddick is linebacker that you can plug and play from week 1 and that's what Sin City needs. Riddick has ideal measurements for a middle linebacker at this level and has versatility to play other spots and when you pair him with Mack and Irvin this linebacking corps becomes scary as all hell.

25. Houston Texans: Patrick Mahomes QB Texas Tech

The Texans need another quarterback on their roster, that is first and foremost. I don't doubt Savageís ability to be a middle of the road starter in this league but not as a franchise signal caller. I know Mitchell and Kizer are still on the board but they each don't have a cannon like Patty M has. Bill O'Brien is one of the best qb coaching minds in the NFL and takes a chance on the former Air Raid quarterback as the quarterback of the future and potentially present for this super bowl hungry squadron.

26. Seattle Seahawks: Gareon Conley CB Ohio State

The Seahawks have Richard ShermanÖ. For now. When there is smoke there is usually fire and I am not saying that Sherman will even be traded before or on draft day but my sources are telling me that these rumors do have merit. Conley has a nice blend of all the measurements needed to be a number one corner in this league and his tape at OSU proves it. If they keep Sherman this becomes a tad of a luxury pick but still the Hawks need some insurance if Shermy is gone.

27. Kansas City Chiefs: Deshone Kizer QB Notre Dame

As much as Kansas City won't admit it, the Chiefs will not win a superbowl with Alex Smith at the helm. There are way more pressing needs than a QB but Kizer's potential along with head coach Andy Reidís coaching prowess this is too good of a fit to pass up. Kizer as tall and rangy quarterback with excellent athleticism who can do damage with his arm and legs. There have been consistency issues with Kizer but when he is on, he arguably is the top quarterback on tape in this class. Another luxury pick here but could be a franchise changer for KC.

28. Dallas Cowboys: Evan Engram TE Ole Miss

Engram is another athletic freak with top of the line speed and explosiveness. This gives Dak another weapon on offense and also the heir apparent to HOF Jason Witten. Engram will dominate due to the attention given to Zeke, Dez, and Witten and this is why gambling Jerry makes the pick. Engram is not a blocker at this point but they don't need him to be right now and can learn from one of the best.

29. Green Bay Packers: Alvin Kamara RB Tennessee

Kamara is a stud and in any other year would probably the top running back in the class. The Packers have a huge hole at running back and you put Kamara with Aaron Rodgers you have a deadly combination. The only knock on Kamara is the lack of carries in a game but I don't see that being an issue because of his ideal measurables. Kamara is a great pick this late in the first round.

30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jarrad Davis LB Florida

With the loss of Timmons in free agency there is a major hole at linebacker and Davis fits the bill for another quality linebacker for this franchise. This is an amazing spot from Davis because he can learn a lot from father time James and can potentially start right away. Davis prowess in run defense along with his exceptional athleticism gives him the potential to be a pro bowler very early in his career.

31. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Harris DE Mizzou

They were so damn close last year these guys better be hungry this year. Harris is a steal this late in the 1st. Harris has many different moves to get to the quarterback and with Beasley on the other side he will have plenty of opportunities to do work on one on one coverage. Harris does not have freakish athleticism but his talent is undeniable.

32. New England Patriots: Jabrill Peppers Athlete Mich

I am not going to give him a specific position in this spot, most of all because he is going to the Patriots. This guy is a talentÖ HANDS DOWN. I grew up in the same area as this young buck and have seen him from High School and things he was doing there along with the things he did at Michigan leaves me no choice to believe he will do these things on the NFL level. Special Teams, Defense, Offense it doesn't matter, Peppers will contribute on any level. This is the best possible landing spot and a steal for the Patriots who at this spot is a dark horse ROY candidate.

I like it. I think Tomsula can get the most out of McDowell.

Where as Harris is a solid player for the Falcons i don't agree with you at all he is a steal and i value him more of a early to mid 2nd rounder. So the value isn't to bad but i think we can do better with whats available to us.

Here are 3 players that would for sure be better value imo

Taco Charleton - Top 15 to 20 player now THIS would be a steal for the Falcons. Him or Takk would be amazing for us come draft day.

T.J. Watt - similar value as Harris but i think a better upside and player overall.

Derek Rivers - This guy is going to be a stud at the next level and im not even sure he makes it to our pick at 31 truthfully.

For the 100th time, Cardinals aren't taking a WR round 1. It's either QB or defense (as we lost 3 starters on D).

Watson to the Browns? What a garbage pick. Watson will never be in Cleveland as he is not a QB Hue prefers. Williams or Davis is the pick for Cleveland.

I'd prefer going defense but I have no problem with Ramczyk.

Not a chance. Some character concerns, didn't test well, and RB is a need but further down the list. We'd sprint to the podium for Corey Davis here.

Tak is a reach at 11. We own the 32nd pick, not the Patriots

The Steelers will not spend a first on an ILB unless it someone with MUCH better value. They have Vince Williams who is more than serviceable. OLB and CB are biggest needs.

I think that is a very likely option for the eagles.
