Pacific Takes Pac-12 Perspective 2017 NFL mock draft 4.6.17: Kevin King goes in first round

An update of our Pac-12-focused NFL mock draft

NCAA Football: Washington at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Cleveland - Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M
  2. San Francisco - Solomon Thomas DE Stanford - Thomas’ stock has simmered since the Sun Bowl and combine and has turned himself into the second or third best prospect in the draft. The 49ers don’t have a direct need at defensive end, but I think they will decide if they like Thomas or Jonathan Allen more and take their pick.
  3. Chicago - Jonathan Allen DE Alabama
  4. Jacksonville - Leonard Fournette RB LSU
  5. Tennessee - Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama
  6. Jets - Jamal Adams S LSU
  7. Chargers - Malik Hooker S Ohio State
  8. Carolina - Marshon Lattimore CB Ohio State
  9. Cincinnati - Reuben Foster LB Alabama
  10. Buffalo - Mike Williams WR Clemson
  11. New Orleans - Derek Barnett DE Tennessee
  12. Cleveland - Mitchell Trubisky QB North Carolina
  13. Arizona - Taco Charlton DE Michigan
  14. Philadelphia - Dalvin Cook RB Florida State
  15. Indianapolis - Cam Robinson T Alabama
  16. Baltimore - Garett Bolles T Utah - Bolles brought himself into the top offensive lineman in the draft conversation with his combine performance. The Ravens need to rebuild at tackle and there aren’t many other players who aren’t a reach here at positions they need help at.
  17. Washington - Haason Reddick LB Temple
  18. Tennessee - O.J. Howard TE Alabama
  19. Tampa Bay - John Ross WR Washington - I can’t see the fastest player in combine history falling further than this. A team like Tampa Bay who really needs more targets for their young quarterback would be a perfect landing spot for Ross.
  20. Denver - Forrest Lamp G Western Kentucky
  21. Detroit - Gareon Conley CB Ohio State
  22. Miami - Charles Harris DE Missouri
  23. Giants - Ryan Ramcyzk T Wisconsin
  24. Oakland - Jarrad Davis LB Florida
  25. Houston - Adoree’ Jackson CB USC - Jackson is a guarantee first round athlete with as much potential as any player in this draft. The Texans could use a boost in their secondary and a player like Jackson could come in right away and turn into a star with the help he would get from their front seven.
  26. Seattle - Chidobe Awuzie CB Colorado - I think the Pac-12 has the five best corner prospects in the draft and Awuzie is the best of them in my opinion. The Seahawks need a new, young lockdown corner and they could find him in Awuzie.
  27. Kansas City - Corey Davis WR Western Michigan
  28. Dallas - Obi Melifonwu S UConn
  29. Green Bay - Tre’Davious White CB LSU
  30. Pittsburgh - Jabril Peppers S Michigan
  31. Atlanta - Takkarist McKinley DE UCLA - An injury will prevent McKinley from being the Top 10 selection he could be, but this elite pass rusher can only fall so far. The Falcons really need help on the edge and McKinley would be a steal here.
  32. New Orleans - Kevin King CB Washington - The 6’3 King was overshadowed by stud corner teammate Sidney Jones at Washington, but it won’t stop him from being a first round pick. The Saints need help at cornerback and King has outrageous length and potential.

2nd Round

33. Cleveland - Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford - McCaffrey is so hard to peg. He has so much going for him, but at the same time is a questionable NFL prospect. A team with four picks in the first two rounds with a need for playmakers at running back like Cleveland would be a great spot for him if he falls this far.

34. San Francisco - DeShone Kizer QB Notre Dame

35. Jacksonville - David Njoku TE Miami

36. Chicago - Deshaun Watson QB Clemson

37. Rams - Dan Feeney G Indiana

38. Chargers - T.J. Watt LB Wisconsin

39. Jets - Zach Cunningham LB Vanderbilt

40. Carolina - Alvin Kamara RB Tennessee

41. Cincinnati - Ahkello Witherspoon CB Colorado - Witherspoon is basically Colorado’s Kevin King and could go as high as the first round as a 6’3 corner who can run a 4.4 40. The Bengals could use a boost as cornerback and Witherspoon is a great value here.

42. New Orleans - JuJu Smith-Schuster WR USC - The Saints need a new receiver now that Brandin Cooks is gone and Smith-Schuster is the kind of big play target they need. Smith-Schuster has first round talent and should be available in the second round.

43. Philadelphia - Curtis Samuel WR Ohio State

44. Buffalo - Budda Baker S Washington - Baker would be a sure fire first round pick if he was a couple inches taller. Either way, he is steal here for the Bills in the second round.

45. Arizona - Pat Mahomes QB Texas Tech

46. Indianapolis - Fabian Moreau CB UCLA - Another combine star, Moreau is 6’1 200, but runs a 4.3. The Colts need major defensive help and he could slide in right away.

47. Minnesota - D’Onta Foreman RB Texas

48. Baltimore - Dawuane Smoot DE Illinois

49. Washington - Tanoh Kpassagnon DE Villanova

50. Tampa Bay - Joe Mixon RB Oklahoma

51. Denver - Evan Engram TE Mississippi

52. Cleveland - Quincy Wilson CB Florida

53. Detroit - Caleb Brantley DT Florida

54. Miami - Jalen Tabor CB Florida

55. Giants - Malik McDowell DE Michigan State

56. Oakland - Jordan Willis DE Kansas State

57. Houston - Davis Webb QB Cal - I think Webb cemented himself as a second round pick with his combine performance. The Texans really need a quarterback and Webb is the only one worth taking right here who should be available.

58. Seattle - Dion Dawkins T Temple

59. Kansas City - Taylor Moton T Western Michigan

60. Dallas - Chris Wormley DE Michigan

61. Green Bay - Tim Williams LB Alabama

62. Pittsburgh - Gerald Everett TE South Alabama

63. Atlanta - Marcus Williams S Utah - Williams is an amazing talent at safety to still be around late in the second round. The Falcons need secondary help and a rangy safety with speed and hitting ability like Williams would be an excellent choice.

64. Carolina - Carl Lawson DE Auburn
