  1. San Francisco - Sam Darnold QB USC - I have my doubts about Darnold declaring as a sophomore even if he wins the Heisman and USC wins a national championship, but I don’t have doubts about his skills. He’s the top prospect in the draft right now in my opinion.
  2. Cleveland - SaQuan Barkley RB Penn State
  3. Jets - Josh Allen QB Wyoming
  4. Rams - Arden Key DE LSU
  5. Chicago - Trey Adams T Washington - The nation and NFL is starting to pay attention to the 6’8 325 tackle with the agility of a power forward and two years of starting under his belt. He has the potential to be a franchise tackle and the first offensive lineman off the board.
  6. Buffalo - Lamar Jackson QB Louisville
  7. Jacksonville - Josh Rosen QB UCLA - Rosen has so much to prove in 2017, but he’s a great NFL prospect right now and the league is desperate for skilled passers like him. A team that needs a fresh start at QB could take him early in the first round.
  8. Chargers - Derwin James S Florida State
  9. Washington - Christian Kirk WR Texas A&M
  10. Miami - Calvin Ridley WR Alabama
  11. New Orleans - Sam Hubbard DE Ohio State
  12. Philadelphia - Da’Ron Payne DT Alabama
  13. Indianapolis - Mike McGlinchey T Notre Dame
  14. Detroit - Christian Wilkins DT Clemson
  15. Tennessee - Minkah Fitzpatrick S Alabama
  16. Minnesota - Connor Williams T Texas
  17. Cincinnati - Dorance Armstrong Jr. DE Kansas
  18. Arizona - Harold Landry DE Boston College
  19. Baltimore - Vita Vea DT Washington - Vea has first round pick written all over him. He will be either the first defensive tackle taken or the third or fourth, late in the first, at worst.
  20. Giants - Trenton Thompson DT Georgia
  21. Cleveland - Iman Marshall CB USC - Big, skilled and athletic, Marshall could be the top cornerback in this draft. He is a guaranteed first rounder as long as he has a good season.
  22. Carolina - Tarvarus McFadden CB Florida State
  23. Denver - Andrew Brown DE Virginia
  24. Tampa Bay - Kevin Tolliver II CB LSU
  25. Buffalo - Equanimeous St. Brown WR Notre Dame
  26. Seattle - Quenton Nelson G Notre Dame
  27. Green Bay - Bo Scarbrough RB Alabama
  28. Pittsburgh - Bradley Chubb DE NCState
  29. Oakland - TyQuan Lewis DE Ohio State
  30. Atlanta - Dontavius Russell DT Auburn
  31. Dallas - Malik Jefferson LB Texas
  32. New England - Jordan Whitehead S Pittsburgh

2nd Round

33. San Francisco - James Washington WR Oklahoma State

34. Cleveland - Parris Campbell WR Ohio State

35. Jets - Courtland Sutton WR SMU

36. Rams - Cameron Smith LB USC - The best inside linebacker prospect in the draft. Smith won’t stick around long in the second round if he falls that far.

37. Chicago - Josh Sweat DE Florida State

38. Buffalo - Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State

39. Jacksonville - Martez Ivey G Florida

40. Chargers - Antonio Calloway WR Florida

41. Washington - Jarrett Stidham QB Auburn

42. Miami - Marquis Haynes DE Mississippi

43. San Francisco - Derrius Guice RB LSU

44. Cleveland - Billy Price G Ohio State

45. Indianapolis - Jaire Alexander CB Louisville

46. Detroit - Maea Teuhema G LSU

47. Tennessee - Adonis Alexander CB Virginia Tech

48. Minnesota - Jordan Thomas CB Oklahoma

49. Cincinnati - Jerome Baker LB Ohio State

50. Arizona - Nick Fitzgerald QB Mississippi State

51. Baltimore - Royce Freeman RB Oregon - The Ravens haven’t been the same without a running back. A 230-pound beast with speed and proven skills like Freeman could get them back on the right track in the run game.

52. Giants - Martinas Rankin T Mississippi State

53. Cleveland - Micah Kiser LB Virginia

54. Carolina - Mitch Hyatt T Clemson

55. Denver - Armani Watts S Texas A&M

56. Tampa Bay - Matthew Thomas LB Florida State

57. Kansas City - Marcell Frazier DE Missouri

58. Seattle - Dante Pettis WR Washington - The Seahawks need another playmaker at receiver. A player with world class leaping abilities downfield could really help Doug Baldwin.

59. Green Bay - Duke Ejiofor DE Wake Forest

60. Pittsburgh - Chase Litton QB Marshall

61. Oakland - Nick Chubb RB Georgia

62. Atlanta - Porter Gustin DE USC - The Falcons need to keep adding pass rushers and Gustin already looks like an NFL defensive end.

63. Dallas - James Hearns DE Louisville

64. New England - Ronald Jones RB USC - The Patriots need a new running back and the electric fast Jones should continue to blow up in 2017.
