2017 NFL Mock Draft: Pac-12 Perspective final: Solomon Thomas and Christian McCaffrey first Pac-12 players off board

Our final Pac-12 Perspective mock draft for 2017 expands to three rounds.

NCAA Football: Foster Farms Bowl-Indiana vs Utah Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Cleveland - Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M
  2. San Francisco - Solomon Thomas DE Stanford - I really don’t know what will happen in picks 2-12, but here goes. It sounds like the 49ers are looping back around to Thomas from the down the Bay. They don’t have a glaring need at defensive end, but Thomas is versatile and the best talent here.
  3. Chicago - Jamal Adams S LSU
  4. Jacksonville - Jonathan Allen DE Alabama
  5. Tennessee - Malik Hooker S Ohio State
  6. Jets - Marshon Lattimore CB Ohio State
  7. Chargers - Derek Barnett DE Tennessee
  8. Carolina - Leonard Fournette RB LSU
  9. Cincinnati - Reuben Foster LB Alabama
  10. Buffalo - Mitchell Trubisky QB North Carolina
  11. New Orleans - Taco Charlton DE Michigan
  12. Cleveland - Mike Williams WR Clemson
  13. Arizona - O.J. Howard TE Alabama
  14. Philadelphia - Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford - Can a 200-pound running back go in the Top 15? I guess. McCaffrey is an out of this world talent who could be the perfect spark for the Eagles offense with Carson Wentz.
  15. Indianapolis - Charles Harris DE Missouri
  16. Baltimore - Cam Robinson T Alabama
  17. Washington - Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama
  18. Tennessee - John Ross WR Washington - I could see Ross jumping past Mike Williams, but if he doesn’t he is definitely the second receiver taken. I think the Titans pick a receiver or tight end here and this would be a match made in heaven.
  19. Tampa Bay - Dalvin Cook RB Florida State
  20. Denver - Haason Reddick LB Temple
  21. Detroit - T.J. Watt LB Wisconsin
  22. Miami - Jarrad Davis LB Florida
  23. Giants - Garett Bolles T Utah - It looks like the Giants might go tackle here and the best talent at the position in the draft in Bolles will be here so it would be an excellent pick.
  24. Oakland - Kevin King CB Washington - The Raiders need cornerback help, so why not take a player from Oakland with outrageous skills and length?
  25. Houston - Pat Mahomes QB Texas Tech
  26. Seattle - Obi Melifonwu S UConn
  27. Kansas City - Forrest Lamp G Western Kentucky
  28. Dallas - Chidobe Awuzie CB Colorado - The Cowboys can take the best defensive player on the board and that should be Awuzie. He has lock-down corner written all over him.
  29. Green Bay - Gareon Conley CB Ohio State
  30. Pittsburgh - DeShone Kizer QB Notre Dame
  31. Atlanta - Jordan Willis DE Kansas State
  32. New Orleans - Adoree’ Jackson CB USC - The Saints can load up on another best talent available on the defense and ultra athlete Jackson is that as a great value at the very end of the opening round.

Second Round

33. Cleveland - Deshaun Watson QB Clemson

34. San Francisco - Zach Cunningham LB Vanderbilt

35. Jacksonville - David Njoku TE Miami

36. Chicago - Corey Davis WR Western Michigan

37. Rams - Zay Jones WR East Carolina

38. Chargers - Ryan Ramczyk T Wisconsin

39. Jets - Takkarist McKinley DE UCLA - I could still see McKinley making the first round, but if he doesn’t, he won’t be around long in the second.

40. Carolina - Fabian Moreau CB UCLA - The Panthers need major help at cornerback and grab another UCLA player with first-round skills early in the second.

41. Cincinnati - Tyus Bowser DE Houston

42. New Orleans - Jabril Peppers S Michigan

43. Philadelphia - Tre’Davious White CB LSU

44. Buffalo - Curtis Samuel WR Ohio State

45. Arizona - Davis Webb QB Cal - The Cardinals really need a young quarterback and will have to make a move in the second round. Webb is the best in the pack after the Trusbisky, Mahomes, Kizer, Watson bunch and should be available.

46. Indianapolis - Marcus Maye S Florida

47. Baltimore - DeMarcus Walker DE Florida State

48. Minnesota - Alvin Kamara RB Tennessee

49. Washington - Malik McDowell DE Michigan State

50. Tampa Bay - Budda Baker S Washington - Baker is a couple inches away from being a Top 15 pick, but is the best safety in the draft by a mile at this point and the Bucs need safety help.

51. Denver - Evan Engram TE Mississippi

52. Cleveland - Quincy Wilson CB Florida

53. Detroit - JuJu Smith-Schuster WR USC - Smith-Schuster is a steal at this point as a 6’2 220-pound receiver with speed and hands. The Lions could use a new potential star at WR.

54. Miami - Chris Wormley DE Michigan

55. Giants - Tanoh Kpassagnon DE Villanova

56. Oakland - Joe Mixon RB Oklahoma

57. Houston - Julie’n Davenport T Bucknell

58. Seattle - Dan Feeney G Indiana

59. Kansas City - Jalen Tabor CB Florida

60. Dallas - Raekwon McMillon LB Ohio State

61. Green Bay - Montravius Adams DT Auburn

62. Pittsburgh - Josh Jones S NCState

63. Atlanta - Dion Dawkins G Temple

64. Carolina - Antonio Garcia T Troy

3rd Round

65. Cleveland - Marcus Williams S Utah - The Browns need to reload their secondary and Williams is a nice second round talent available in the third round.

66. San Francisco - Gerald Everett TE South Alabama

67. Chicago - David Sharpe T Florida

68. Jacksonville - Taylor Moton T Western Michigan

69. Rams - Cordrea Tankersly CB Clemson

70. Jets - Jourdan Lewis CB Michigan

71. Chargers - Desmond King S Iowa

72. New England - D’Onta Foreman RB Texas

73. Cincinnati - Ahkello Witherspoon CB Colorado - Witherspoon could sneak into the first round, but will be a huge value here if he is still around.

74. Baltimore - Sidney Jones CB Washington - Guranteed Top 20 pick before he tore his Achilles. Is the kind of player who could be a Pro Bowler once he gets healthy and make everyone wonder why they didn’t just look past the injury.

75. Buffalo - Derek Rivers DE Youngstown State

76. New Orleans - Chris Godwin WR Penn State

77. Arizona - Tim Williams DE Alabama

78. Baltimore - T.J. Logan RB North Carolina

85. Detroit - Carlos Watkins DT Clemson

86. Minnesota - Shelton Gibson WR West Virginia

87. Giants - Nathan Peterman QB Pittsburgh

88. Oakland - Ryan Anderson DE Alabama

89. Houston - Adam Shaheen TE Ashland

90. Seattle - Isaac Asiata G Utah - The Seahawks need to load up on offensive linemen and the massive Asiata could help right away.

91. Kansas City - Brady Kaaya QB Miami

92. Dallas - Caleb Brantley DT Florida

93. Green Bay - Kareem Hunt RB Toledo

94. Pittsburgh - Blair Brown LB Ohio

95. Atlanta - Justin Evans S Texas A&M
