1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Jameis Winston 1 Last Rank
Todd McShay (who is never wrong) is calling Winston the best QB since Luck.

2 Tennessee Titans: DT Leonard Williams (+) 4
Most people expect Williams to be the first defender gone.

3 Jacksonville Jaguars: OLB Vic Beasley 3
A lot of people put Fowler or Gregory here now, but ultimately I expect Beasley to be the top pass rusher.

4 Oakland Raiders: WR Kevin White (+) 6
The Raiders missed out on all the top free agent WRs.

5 Washington Pigskins: QB Marcus Mariota (-) 2
If no one trades up, they won’t pass on the chance to move on from RG3.

6 New York Jets: OLB Randy Gregory (+) 9
After getting help at WR and CB, the Jets can take one of the pass rushers.

7 Chicago Bears: WR Amari Cooper (+) 10
With Marshall gone, I don’t think you can pass on Cooper for some boat anchor DT (Shelton).

8 Atlanta Falcons: DE Dante Fowler 8
I don’t buy the Shane Ray talk here, unless they have no better option.

9 New York Giants: DT Malcom Brown (+) 12
Brown has made a slow, osmosis-like rise throughout the draft process.

10 Saint Louis Rams: WR DeVante Parker (+) 14
Somehow WR is still their greatest need.

11 Minnesota Vikings: CB Marcus Peters (+) 31
The media are still not over the ‘character’ nonsense. Soon Peters will be the top CB in mocks.

12 Cleveland Browns: NT Danny Shelton (-) 7
The law requiring him to be mocked to the Bears had been repealed finally.

13 New Orleans Saints: OLB Alvin Dupree (-) 5
I cannot believe there is even debate about whether Dupree belongs in the first round. Top 15 easily.

14 Miami Dolphins: G Brandon Scherff (+) 19
Talent and need outweigh the lower value of the guard position.

15 San Francisco 49ers: CB Ronald Darby (+) 37
Placing Darby this high may surprise you now, but within a few weeks he will be the new ‘hot’ CB.

16 Houston Texans: OLB Shane Ray (+) 20
Clowney is likely out this season, and he may never be the same.

17 San Diego Chargers: WR Dorial Green-Beckham (+) 53
I think they’re aggressively rebuilding their offense this year, and they appear desperate for a big WR.

18 Kansas City Chiefs: G La’el Collins 18
A run blocker for Jamaal and Knile.

19 Cleveland Browns: WR Jaelen Strong (+) 45
Josh McCown needs a tall WR.

20 Philadelphia Eagles: OLB Owamagbe Odighizuwa (-) 13
Gil Brandt says their guy ‘should be there.’ Diggy is a super-athletic, versatile pass rusher who fills major defensive need.

21 Cincinnati Bengals: DE Preston Smith 21
People are still unaware of Smith’s existence. A certain someone’s recent mock has him in the fifth round. You’re not getting him there.

22 Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Trae Waynes (-) 11
The post-Combine days of Trae as the unanimous top CB will soon come to an end.

23 Detroit Lions: RB Todd Gurley 23
They have enough of a glaring need at RB to take an injured one in the first round.

24 Arizona Cardinals: OLB Eli Harold (+) 48
They signed Sean Weatherspoon to play ILB, and so I think Kendricks is out now. There’s a major need for an athletic pass-rusher.

25 Carolina Panthers: LT DJ Humphries 25
The top LT in the draft.

26 Baltimore Ravens: CB Kevin Johnson (+) 33
Johnson is the current hot CB name getting first-round buzz.

27 Dallas Cowboys: RB Melvin Gordon (+) 42
DeMarco’s gone.

28 Denver Broncos: RT Jake Fisher (+) 36
Kubiak requires athletic linemen.

29 Indianapolis Colts: S Landon Collins 29
He replaces LaRon Landry.

30 Green Bay Packers: ILB Stephone Anthony 30
There’s little chance he’ll last until their second pick.

31 New Orleans Saints: CB Jalen Collins  (-)  22
They still need more CB depth.

32 New England Patriots: CB Byron Jones (-) 15
Suddenly the Patriots have an urgent need at CB. Six CBs go in the first round, and they get the best one. “How do they do it?”
