Our NFL mock draft only focuses on Pac-12 draft picks

NCAA Football: UCLA at Arizona State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Figured with the early entries officially declared. Let’s update our Pac-12-focused NFL mock draft.

  1. Cleveland - Mitch Trubisky QB North Carolina
  2. San Francisco - DeShone Kizer QB Notre Dame
  3. Chicago - Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M
  4. Jacksonville - Jonathan Allen DE Alabama
  5. Tennessee - Jamal Adams S LSU
  6. Jets - Leonard Fournette RB LSU
  7. Chargers - Deshaun Watson QB Clemson
  8. Carolina - Solomon Thomas DE Stanford - Thomas has become one of the hottest prospects in the draft after his incredible performance in the Sun Bowl and after declaring early. He is the best defensive line prospect after the elite two in Garrett and Allen and shouldn’t fall out of the Top 10. The Panthers could use fresh, talented blood like him up front.
  9. Cincinnati - Derek Barnett DE Tennessee
  10. Buffalo - Patrick Mahomes QB Texas Tech
  11. New Orleans - Malik Hooker S Ohio State
  12. Cleveland - Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama
  13. Arizona - Reuben Foster LB Alabama
  14. Indianapolis - Cam Robinson T Alabama
  15. Philadelphia - Dalvin Cook RB Florida State
  16. Baltimore - Sidney Jones CB Washington - It’s a tight pack of really talented cornerbacks in this years draft and I think Jones is as good as any of them and has length which sets him apart. The Ravens need a new corner and would have a wealth of great prospects to choose from, Jones being the best available after Humphrey in my opinion.
  17. Washington - Malik McDowell DE Michigan State
  18. Tennessee - Mike Williams WR Clemson
  19. Tampa Bay - Chris Wormley DE Michigan
  20. Denver - Ryan Ramcyzk T Wisconsin
  21. Detroit - Taco Charlton DE Michigan
  22. Miami - Zach Cunningham LB Vanderbilt
  23. Giants - Charles Harris DE Missouri
  24. Oakland - Quincy Wilson CB Florida
  25. Houston - O.J. Howard TE Alabama
  26. Seattle - Garett Bolles T Utah - Bolles is quietly as good as any offensive lineman in this draft and could easily be the first one taken. The Seahawks could get a huge score here if he is around to help their woeful offensive line.
  27. Kansas City - Corey Davis WR Western Michigan
  28. Dallas - Marshon Lattimore CB Ohio State
  29. Green Bay - Jalen Tabor CB Florida
  30. Pittsburgh - Takkarist McKinley DE UCLA - McKinley’s stock is rightfully heating up. He is one of the best pure pass rushers in the draft, but also has the bulk to hold up against the run. The Steelers could use another edge rusher on their defense and McKinley could help right away.
  31. Atlanta - Caleb Brantley DT Florida
  32. New England - Jabril Peppers S Michigan

2nd Round

33. Cleveland - Antonio Garcia T Troy

34. San Francisco - John Ross WR Washington - Ross has Top 15 speed, but is small and his production against press coverage in his final two games is going to raise a lot of concern with teams. However, a receiver with his proven production who can run whatever he will run in the combine will quickly get snatched in the second round by a team that needs receivers like the 49ers.

35. Jacksonville - Ethan Pocic G LSU

36. Chicago - Curtis Samuels WR Ohio State

37. Rams - JuJu Smith-Schuster WR USC - Smith-Schuster is a major talent to be around in the second round and the Rams could add the local product to their receiving corps to help Jared Goff and give them more size and speed at the same time.

38. Chargers - T.J. Watt LB Wisconsin

39. Jets - Shelton Gibson WR West Virginia

40. Carolina - Desmond King CB Iowa

41. Cincinnati - Jarrad Davis LB Florida

42. New Orleans - Dawuane Smoot DE Illinois

43. Philadelphia - Chris Godwin WR Penn State

44. Buffalo - Adoree’ Jackson CB USC - It might seem strange to have a world class athlete like Jackson down here, but I have long wondered about his pure cover corner skills and I think it will drop him behind and excellent class of corners. He would be a scary steal here though, especially considering his return skills as well.

45. Arizona - Carroll Phillips DE Illinois

46. MInnesota - Alvin Kamara RB Tennessee

47. Baltimore - DeMarcus Walker DE Florida State

48. Indianapolis - Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford - The Colts need a running back and receiver, so how about picking up Andrew Luck’s fellow Stanford product who can run and catch as well as any prospect in the draft?

49. Washington - Marcus Maye S Florida

50. Tampa Bay - David Njoku TE Miami

51. Denver - Evan Engram TE Mississippi

52. Cleveland - D’Onta Foreman RB Texas

53. Detroit - Carlos Watkins DT Clemson

54. Miami - Gareon Conley CB Ohio State

55. Giants - Tre’Davious White CB LSU

56. Oakland - Nazair Jones DE North Carolina

57. Houston - Fabian Moreau CB UCLA - Moreau is another UCLA product sliding up boards. He has great size, physicality and experience. He could help the back end of the Texan defense.

58. Seattle - Jaleel Johnson DT Iowa

59. Kansas City - Julie’n Davenport T Bucknell

60. Dallas - Gerald Everett TE South Alabama

61. Green Bay - Jeremy McNichols RB Boise State

62. Pittsburgh - Kevin King CB Washington - I think King is about to blow up. He is 6’3 with outrageous range and tackling skills. The Steelers need more young talent at corner and he could be a nice fit.

63. Atlanta - Dan Feeney G Indiana

64. New England - Forrest Lamp T Western Kentucky
