It is time for the next mock draft. With the scouting combine coming soon it is time to start really getting ready for the draft.
1. Cleveland Browns (1-15)
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M The Browns would make a mistake if they picked anyone other than Myles Garrett. No one else in this draft will have the type of impact that Garrett will, regardless of their position. After resigning Jamie Collins and the flashes of Emmanuel Ogbah, the Browns would be smart to bolster their defense even further. Other Needs: QB, CB, S, LB, OL
Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina Kyle Shanahan needs a quarterback to work with to make his offense work and the smartest move would take the best one in the draft. Mitch Trubisky looks like the type of quarterback that would fit in a Shanahan run offense. If given a year or two, Trubisky could be a real threat to the NFC West. Other needs: LB, CB, WR, OL, DL
Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama The Bears have a couple of needs and should take the best player that they can. If they can keep Brian Hoyer or bring in a veteran quarterback, then drafting a player like Allen would make a lot of sense. He has the ability to play anywhere along the defensive line and perform at a high level. Other needs: QB, CB, WR, DB, OL
Jamal Adams, S, LSU Jacksonville drafted the top cornerback last year when they took Jalen Ramsey. To put a top safety like Adams with Ramsey would make their secondary one of the best in the league and certainly the best in their division. Other needs: OL, DL, QB, RB
5. Tennessee Titans (9-7) [Los Angeles Rams (4-12)]
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State The Tennessee Titans can use some help in the secondary and adding a player like Lattimore would fill that need. Lattimore has the size, athleticism and natural ability to neutralize opposing receivers. Other Needs: WR, DL, LB
Teez Tabor, CB, Florida The Jets need to replace some of their older cornerbacks and Tabor is a good candidate to do so. Tabor is a prototypical NFL cornerback with good size and ability to cover receivers. He has some areas to improve upon, but should develop into an excellent NFL player.
Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford The Chargers need a couple of things, but fixing up the defense might be their best option. Solomon Thomas might be the most versatile defensive lineman at the top of the draft and should be able to help the Chargers. Pairing him with Joey Bosa would set the Chargers up nicely for the next four years. Other needs: LB, S, OL, WR
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State The Panthers have Jonathan Stewart and Fozzy Whittaker, but they need some youth in their backfield. Dalvin Cook is the best running back in this year's draft. He has the homerun ability, ability to catch and can run good routes. He could improve a little bit on pass protection, but he improved dramatically in that category during his time at Florida State and should be able to progress more at the pro level.
Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama The strength of the Bengals is supposed to be their defense, but they didn’t show up the way Bengals fans would have liked them to this season. They need some youth and talent to help revitalize this defense and Ruben Foster is the perfect candidate for the job. Other Needs: CB, TE, LB, WR
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson The Buffalo Bills would have a chance to draft a quarterback, but adding a receiver like Williams might be too good to pass up. Williams is an excellent receiver that would make Sammy Watkins even better once he is healthy.
Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State The Saints need a lot of help on defense and Hooker would be the best player available at this point in the draft. Hooker is one of the most talented players in the draft and the only reason that he would drop this far would be because he is still recovering from hernia and labrum surgery. He would instantly be the best defensive player in New Orleans and would give Saints' fans something to be excited about. Other Needs: DE, TE, LB, CB
DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame The Cleveland Browns would be able to draft their quarterback of the future in this circumstance. Kizer is young and has a lot of talent that could be developed by Hue Jackson. If Kizer is developed properly, then the Browns could be in a good spot going forward.
Other Needs: CB, DE, S
Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson The Cardinals need to start looking toward the future after Carson Palmer. Deshaun Watson needs some time to develop and to learn behind a professional like Palmer would help him become a top quarterback in the NFL. Other Needs: OL, TE, WR
14. Philadelphia Eagles (7-9) [Minnesota Vikings (8-8)]
Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan The Eagles desperately need help at the wide receiver position. Corey Davis is possibly the best all-around receiver in this draft. He would give Carson Wentz a great weapon to go to as he progresses. His level of competition wasn’t the best in college, but neither was Wentz’s. He would give them the option of being in contention for the NFC East. Other needs: RB, TE
Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin The Colts need to protect Andrew Luck and Ramczyk is the best option for that. Ramczyk is the best all around offensive lineman in this year's draft and should be able to play on either side.
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU The Ravens have a pretty strong defense and need a dynamic weapon on offense to complement that. Fournette isn’t the fastest running back, but his ability to make a big play when needed is undeniable. Fournette is also a pretty good blocker, but it will be interesting to see him catch passes at the combine because he didn't get many good chances while in college. Regardless, he would be a great acquisition for the Ravens. Other needs: S, DL, LB
Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt The Washington Redskins could use some help on defense. Zach Cunningham is athletic, fast and is an absolute playmaker at linebacker that would instantly make the Redskins a better team. Other needs: TE, RB, DL
John Ross III, WR, Washington If the Titans are able to get a big piece for their secondary with their first pick, then they should look to help out their other weakness, wide receiver. John Ross might be the fastest receiver in this year’s draft. He isn’t the biggest receiver, but his ability to make plays makes him a great slot option or even a receiver that can take the top off of any defense. He would certainly add an element to the Tennessee offense that they are desperately missing. Other Needs: DL, CB
OJ Howard, TE, Alabama The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted a young corner last year and should do the same again in this draft. Marlon Humphrey is young, but will develop into a good cornerback along with Vernon Hargreaves. They also have a couple of needs on offense, but it is never a bad idea to build up their defense a little bit more. Other needs: WR, RB
Forrest Lamp, OL, Western Kentucky The Denver Broncos could use some talented players on the offensive line and Forrest Lamp might be the most experienced guy in the draft. He was a four year starter at left tackle and is more likely to move to guard in the NFL due to his size and arm length, but he should be a top five guard within three or four years. Other needs: QB, RB, TE
Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee The Detroit Lions need some help on the defensive line and Derek Barnett should be able to help. Barnett has great athleticism and should be able to balance out the Lions and make them better immediately. Other needs: RB, CB, S, LB
Tim Williams, LB, Alabama Tim Williams might be one of the ten best players in this draft, but his issues off the field might make him drop a little bit. The Dolphins picked up a player like that last year when they selected Laremy Tunsil. If they can keep Williams under control, then he will make the Dolphins an even better team next season. Other Needs: TE, CB, S
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan The Giants could use some help in other places, but having the ability to draft someone like Charlton might be too good to pass up. Charlton has all of the traits that a team would want for a defensive lineman. He has the size, speed and athleticism that defensive coordinators dream of. He is still a bit raw, but given his athletic ability, it won't be long before he is beating up the rest of the NFL. Other needs: RB, LB, OL
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama The Oakland Raiders could use some help in the secondary and Marlon Humphrey would be a good choice for that. Humphrey has the size and athleticism to play in the NFL, but still needs to work on his footwork a little bit. He is very young, but should develop into a good corner for the Raiders. Other needs: RB, DL, LB
Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State Malik McDowell has all of the talent in the world, but there are some concerns that his head isn't always in the game. If he is put into a defense with guys like JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney, then maybe he will be more motivated. Other needs: OL, CB
Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama The Seahawks need to protect Russell Wilson. If he had missed more time last season, then this season could have been even worse for Seahawks fans. Cam Robinson would be the best tackle available at this point and should be someone for Seattle to consider. Robinson does have some issues, but his size and experience should help him adjust to the NFL. Other needs: RB, WR
Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA The Chiefs need help on defense. They are good when Justin Houston is on the field, but with his recent injuries, it is time for the Chiefs to look for some reinforcements. McKinley is a versatile defender that can play in any defense. To see him and Houston rushing at the same time would be frightening for opposing offenses, Other needs: S, WR, RB
Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn The Cowboys desperately need some defensive line help and the addition of Lawson would do just that. He was once thought of as a better pass rusher than Myles Garrett and should add a lot to a troubling defense.
Sidney Jones IV, CB, Washington The Green Bay Packers need someone to replace Sam Shields and Sidney Jones is one of the better cornerbacks in this loaded draft class. He has excellent footwork and has a lot of experience in the position. He needs to add some strength, but other than that, he seems like the perfect cornerback for the Packers. Other needs: LB, DE, RB
Jabrill Peppers, S/OLB, Michigan The Steelers are a team that could find a spot for Jabrill Peppers. He needs to improve in a couple of areas, like coverage, to succeed in the NFL, but Mike Tomlin has a proven track record and should be able to get the most out of Peppers' ability. Other needs: WR, DL
Charles Harris, DE, Missouri The Falcons need to improve their defense, they were worn out by the end of the Super Bowl and need reinforcements. Charles Harris is a high motor player that just keeps going and should complement Vic Beasley very well. He does have a bit of trouble against the run, but should be able to develop. Other needs: LB, CB, S
David Njoku, TE, Miami Martellus Bennett is a free agent and Rob Gronkowksi is coming off of an injury so it would make sense to add another talented tight end through the draft. David Njoku is very talented and would quickly become a favorite target for Tom Brady. Also, when Njoku and Gronkowski are on the field at the same time, it is hard to imagine too many defenses being able to stop the New England offense. Other needs: DE, WR
