2017 NFL Mock Draft — Xavier Cromartie’s One Round Mock (2.0)

Author:
Xavier Cromartie
Air Date:
February 7, 2017

Round 1

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

I’m projecting Tyrod Taylor as the Browns’ QB. There’s no other real option here besides Garrett.

 

  1. San Francisco 49ers: QB Mitch Trubisky (North Carolina) 2

I guess Schaub as their veteran QB makes sense, but they need to draft one here. They’re starting over.

 

  1. Chicago Bears: 5T Jonathan Allen (Alabama) (+) 4

I’m projecting Jimmy Garoppolo as the Bears’ QB. Their d-line remains soft.

 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: S Jamal Adams (Louisiana State) (+) 12

Cyprien is a free agent, so they have nothing at SS.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans (via LAR): CB Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State) (+) 11

They were rotating DBs. They need to rebuild the whole secondary.

 

  1. New York Jets: RB Leonard Fournette (Louisiana State) 6

I’m projecting Mike Glennon as the Jets’ QB. They will take the best player. Building the offense around a RB makes sense for them.

 

  1. Los Angeles Chargers: S Malik Hooker (Ohio State) 7

Their safety situation is a barren wasteland.

 

  1. Carolina Panthers: 7T Derek Barnett (Tennessee) (+) 14

They didn’t have much of a pass rush and a few contracts are up.

 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama) (-) 5

CBs Jones and Kirkpatrick both could depart, and the Bengals are known for their love of CBs.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills: QB DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) (-) 3

Here’s a QB who doesn’t win nor throw accurately, so he’s a nice fit for the Bills.

 

  1. New Orleans Saints: CB Sidney Jones (Washington) (+) 29

They have an eternal need to improve their pass defense.

 

  1. Cleveland Browns (via PHI): ILB Reuben Foster (Alabama) (+) 17

In their new 4-3, they can put Kirksey at WLB, Foster at MLB, and Collins at SLB.

 

  1. Arizona Cardinals: WR Mike Williams (Clemson) (-) 9

It’s pretty clear that they need to think about the future at WR. A pair of sub-180 lb guys won’t work.

 

  1. Indianapolis Colts: 9T Charles Harris (Missouri) (+) 28

They have literally no one to rush the passer. Every contract is up.

 

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: RB Dalvin Cook (Florida State) (-) 8

Pederson would love a RB similar to Jamaal Charles. He tried to make Sproles a feature back.

 

  1. Baltimore Ravens: TE OJ Howard (Alabama) (+) 22

Newsome will convince himself to take Howard. They are weak at TE.

 

  1. Washington Redskins: 5T Malik McDowell (Michigan State) (+) 18

It’s time to rebuild the defensive line.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans: CB Quincy Wilson (Florida) (-) 15

Two CBs in the first round wouldn’t be crazy.

 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR Corey Davis (Western Michigan) (-) 16

There’s no one after Mike Evans.

 

  1. Denver Broncos: 5T Solomon Thomas (Stanford) 20

I’m projecting Tony Romo as the Broncos’ QB. Not hard to imagine that Elway would take a Stanford guy.

 

  1. Detroit Lions: WR John Ross (Washington) (-) 19

They’re stuck with Marvin Jones’s contract, but they need to find playmakers. The Seahawks shut down their offense in the playoffs. Boldin is gone.

 

  1. Miami Dolphins: ILB Zach Cunningham (Vanderbilt) (+) 24

Alonso moves to WLB and Cunningham takes over at MLB.

 

  1. New York Giants: LT Cam Robinson (Alabama) 23

They have to go offense. A run-mauling LT would help change their offensive identity.

 

  1. Oakland Raiders: ILB Jarrad Davis (Florida) (+) NR

Poor LB play hurt their defense all year and Malcolm Smith’s contract is up.

 

  1. Houston Texans: S Jabrill Peppers (Michigan) (-) 13

Keep the defense strong. Safety is a weak point.

 

  1. Seattle Seahawks: LT Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin) 26

They continue to have many needs on the o-line, starting at LT.

 

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: CB Teez Tabor (Florida) (-) 21

Since they never show interest in upgrading at WR, they can go with a CB opposite Peters.

 

  1. Dallas Cowboys: 7T Taco Charlton (Michigan) (+) NR

They’re rotating a bunch of mediocre players on the d-line.

 

  1. Green Bay Packers: CB Adoree’ Jackson (Southern Cal)

Randall and Rollins are busts. GB can’t win with their CBs. They’ve shown a preference for Pac-12 players.

 

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: 9T Tim Williams (Alabama) (+) NR

They really need an edge rusher, so they’ll overlook the character issues.

 

  1. Atlanta Falcons: 3T Caleb Brantley (Florida) 31

They’re about to lose 3 d-linemen from their massive rotation. They have no one other than Grady Jarrett inside.

 

  1. New England Patriots: CB Gareon Conley (Ohio State) 32

Logan Ryan is probably leaving. Belichick/Meyer connection.

 

Dropped out: QB Deshaun Watson (10), QB Patrick Mahomes (25), 9T Dawuane Smoot (30)
