2017 NFL Mock Draft — Xavier Cromartie’s One Round Mock (1.0)

Xavier Cromartie
Air Date:
January 20, 2017

Round 1

  1. Cleveland Browns: 7T Myles Garrett (Texas A&M)

Unanimous choice for best player in the draft.


  1. San Francisco 49ers: QB Mitch Trubisky (North Carolina)

The QBs get pushed to the top because of positional value.


  1. Chicago Bears: QB DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame)

Overdrafted because of need.


  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: 5T Jonathan Allen (Alabama)

Take the best player because they have plenty of needs.


  1. Tennessee Titans (via LAR): CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama)

CBs will go early and often in this draft.


  1. New York Jets: RB Leonard Fournette (Louisiana State)

No team is more desperate for a QB, but they go for value.


  1. Los Angeles Chargers: S Malik Hooker (Ohio State)

They should jump on any of the top 3 safeties.


  1. Carolina Panthers: RB Dalvin Cook (Florida State)

Complement/replacement for Jonathan Stewart.


  1. Cincinnati Bengals: WR Mike Williams (Clemson)

The starter opposite AJ Green plays a lot of snaps and needs to be an upgrade on LaFell.


  1. Buffalo Bills: QB Deshaun Watson (Clemson)

Grades on him are all over the place. I don’t know what else they can do if they dump Tyrod.


  1. New Orleans Saints: CB Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State)

The Saints always need defenders.


  1. Cleveland Browns (via PHI): S Jamal Adams (Louisiana State)

Keep stacking the defensive talent.


  1. Arizona Cardinals: S Jabrill Peppers (Michigan)

The Cardinals can never have too many safeties.


  1. Indianapolis Colts: 7T Derek Barnett (Tennessee)

Lucky for them since they have little at OLB.


  1. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Quincy Wilson (Florida)

Very sad CB situation.


  1. Baltimore Ravens: WR Corey Davis (Western Michigan)

They need to find some offensive playmakers.


  1. Washington Redskins: ILB Reuben Foster (Alabama)

Excellent fit.


  1. Tennessee Titans: 5T Malik McDowell (Michigan State)

He’s going to be tough to place because he’s inconsistent and a 5-tech.


  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR John Ross (Washington)

They need a speedy guy to pair with Evans.


  1. Denver Broncos: 5T Solomon Thomas (Stanford)

The run defense collapsed after Malik Jackson left.


  1. Detroit Lions: CB Teez Tabor (Florida)

They must address their dreadful pass defense.


  1. Miami Dolphins: TE OJ Howard (Alabama)

Gase has to be dreaming about Howard’s potential.


  1. New York Giants: LT Cam Robinson (Alabama)

They should look for offensive help here.


  1. Oakland Raiders: ILB Zach Cunningham (Vanderbilt)

Last year’s additions didn’t help the defense much. LB is a weak spot.


  1. Houston Texans: QB Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech)

Brock Osweiler is fake news.


  1. Seattle Seahawks: LT Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin)

Pathetic o-line.


  1. Kansas City Chiefs: CB Adoree’ Jackson (Southern Cal)

The Chiefs have a thing for those versatile types.


  1. Dallas Cowboys: 9T Charles Harris (Missouri)

Unimpressive pass rushers on this team.


  1. Green Bay Packers: CB Sidney Jones (Washington)

The Packers like size and Pac-12 guys.


  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: 9T Dawuane Smoot (Illinois)

James Harrison won’t last forever.


  1. Atlanta Falcons: 3T Caleb Brantley (Florida)

Nice fit for a team weak at DT.


  1. New England Patriots: CB Gareon Conley (Ohio State)

The Belichick + Urban Meyer combo strikes again.
