2017 NFL Mock Draft — Xavier Cromartie’s One Round Mock (4.0)

Author:
Xavier Cromartie
Air Date:
February 23, 2017

Round 1

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

If they don’t sign a veteran QB, they will stick with Kessler because they like his metrics.

 

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

All new management and no QB.

 

  1. Chicago Bears: 5T Jonathan Allen (Alabama) 3

They should land Garoppolo at QB. The DL needs more than Akiem Hicks.

 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama) (+) 9

Very few mocks have a CB here. But Amukamara is a FA, and they could cut House with no cap hit. Humphrey and Lattimore are both highly ranked CBs.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans (via LAR): CB Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State) 5

TEN is in quite good shape at every position except DB.

 

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

I project Mike Glennon as their QB. They go BPA. Forte and Powell are aging. They have needs everywhere except DL.

 

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

Hooker to LAC has become a meme, but it fits too nicely to change it.

 

  1. Carolina Panthers: 5T Solomon Thomas (Stanford) (+) 20

I think Gettleman will load up on DLs early and often.

 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: 7T Derek Barnett (Tennessee) () 8

CIN tends to go defense early. Barnett is the best need/value combo. No depth after Dunlap and Johnson.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills: WR Mike Williams (Clemson) (+) 13

The #1 reason they will take him is that he is from Clemson. Also, they’re losing 4 WRs to FA. They may end up with Deshaun Watson (Clemson) as well.

 

  1. New Orleans Saints: CB Sidney Jones (Washington) 11

“NO’s pass defense was poor last year.” (You can copy/paste this sentence every year.)

 

  1. Cleveland Browns (via PHI): S Jamal Adams (Louisiana State) () 4

CLE needs a lot of things, and S is one of the bigger needs.

 

  1. Arizona Cardinals: QB DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) () 10

I think that Kizer is the QB whom Keim really wants. (That’s meant as an insult to Keim and his drafting ability.)

 

  1. Indianapolis Colts: 7T Charles Harris (Missouri) 14

All the over-the-hill, ineffective pass-rushers are heading to FA. No team has a greater need at any position than IND does at OLB.

 

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Teez Tabor (Florida) (+) 27

Jalen Mills is PHI’s only CB remaining. Look for either of the Florida CBs here.

 

  1. Baltimore Ravens: TE OJ Howard (Alabama) 16

Do you really think that Ozzie Newsome will pass on an Alabama TE? He’s hoping that he lasts this long.

 

  1. Washington Redskins: CB Adoree’ Jackson (Southern Cal) (+) 29

This pick could go in any direction. If Breeland moves to S, as he should, then CB is weak after Norman.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans: ILB Reuben Foster (Alabama) () 12

They’re losing their ILB depth this year and the starters next year.

 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR John Ross (Washington) (+) 21

I think that Ross will go before Corey Davis.

 

  1. Denver Broncos: RB Christian McCaffrey (Stanford) (+) NR

Ed McCaffrey’s son… Stanford… And they need a RB like him.

 

  1. Detroit Lions: 7T Taco Charlton (Michigan) (+) 28

Devin Taylor is a FA. They have no one else at DE except Ansah.

 

  1. Miami Dolphins: ILB Zach Cunningham (Vanderbilt) 22

Beyond Alonso, MIA has a terrible group of LBs.

 

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

Reese seems disappointed in Flowers and ready to get a new LT.

 

  1. Oakland Raiders: RB Dalvin Cook (Florida State) () 15

For whatever reason, Latavius Murray seems to be on his way out. This isn’t really a shocking fall for Cook. An outside runner with a lot of baggage.

 

  1. Houston Texans: $LB Jabrill Peppers (Michigan) 25

He could play S or LB, depending on the situation. He is the type that Rick Smith will target, I think.

 

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

If any of the top 3 LTs fall to SEA, they should take him.

 

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: CB Quincy Wilson (Florida) () 18

A defensive pick is likely, with an SEC CB being the most likely.

 

  1. Dallas Cowboys: CB Tre’Davious White (Louisiana State) (+) NR

Even if Carr stays while Mr. 4-on-the-Wonderlic leaves for FA, they need a CB. DE is also a need.

 

  1. Green Bay Packers: 9T Takkarist McKinley (UCLA) (+) NR

GB’s CBs are horrible, but they also need an OLB. Since McKinley is the best Pac-12 player available, he’s the pick.

 

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Gareon Conley (Ohio State) (+) 32

Defender, good metrics, Ohio State… everything PIT looks for in a draft pick.

 

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

The DL really needs some work, especially inside.

 

  1. New England Patriots: 9T Tim Williams (Alabama) () 30

NE has the best roster in the league, so Belichick can do whatever he wants.

 

Dropped out: 5T Malik McDowell (17), WR Corey Davis (19), ILB Jarrad Davis (24)
