Motsag Mock NFL Draft

Our Jacob Seymour offers up a mock draft that suggests the QB class is not as highly valued as some suggest. This of course reflects the futility of predicting trades.

1. Cleveland Browns: Myles Garret, DL, Texas A&M. Best player in the draft fills a need for the Browns

2. San Francisco 49ers: Marshon Lattimore, DB, Ohio State. Best DB prospect gives the 49ers a place to start rebuilding. Fournette could go here, but the OL is good enough to select a RB at #2

3. Chicago Bears: Malik Hooker, DB, Ohio State. Bears need playmakers in the secondary and they get the best play making safety since Ed Reed.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU. Blake Bortles needs a run game to help open up the pass game.

5. Tennessee Titans: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson. Best WR prospect, he proved how good he is against OSU and Bama. Mariotta needs a #1 WR.

6. New York Jets: Jamal Adams, DB, LSU. The Jets need talent and Adams is a complete safety. He will allow the Jets to do different things in the back end

7. Los Angeles Chargers: Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford. Chargers go best player available. Bosa and Thomas will be a scary future for opponents

8. Carolina Panthers: Christian Mccaffery, RB, Stanford. His versatility allows the Panthers to fill the holes they have in the offense.

9. Cincinnati Bengals: Johnathan Allen, DL, Alabama. Rumors of his shoulder injuries is what causes him to drop. With the Bengals talent he is worth the risk.

10. Buffalo Bills: John Ross, WR, Washington. This will be the surprise of the draft. Watkins has proven to be unreliable when it comes to staying healthy. That forces the Bills to try and find another playmaker

11. New Orleans Saints: OJ Howard, TE, Alabama. Howard is a Top 5 talent. Though, it is to hard to justify drafting a TE that high. The Saints offense has shown how hard life has been without Jimmy Graham.

12. Cleveland Browns: Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama. Let’s hope Cleveland does the smart thing for once.

13. Arizona Cardinals: Corey Davis, WR, Central Michigan. A future #! WR in the NFL. The successor at Arizona when Fitzgerald retires.

14. Philadelphia Eagles: Tre’Davious White, DB, LSU. One of the best cover DB’s. In the draft. With Dez and Beckham in your division. You need all the DB help you can get. .

15. Indianapolis Colts: Derek Barnett, DL, Tennessee. The Colts continue to build the team around the defense. Just like Pagano has always wanted.

16. Baltimore Ravens: Gareon Conley, DB, Ohio State. Ravens get a steal here at 16. Conley should be a Top 10 pick. The Ravens have proven to go after guys with character issues (i.e Jimmy Smith).

17. Washington Redskins: Haason Reddick, LB, Temple. The guy is all over the field and will help bring speed to this defense.

18. Tennessee Titans: Charles Harris, DE, Missouri. Tennessee looks to improve the pass rush.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State. Another Top 10 player with character issues. The Bucs lost out on the Adrian Peterson sweepstakes and look to give Winston some help.

20. Denver Broncos: Cam Robinson, OL, Alabama. While he started at Alabama for 3 years on the left side. The right side is where he belongs in the NFL. The Broncos need more help than anyone can imagine on the OL.

21. Detroit Lions: David Nkoku, TE, Miami. Add another surprise in the first round. The Lions personnel has New England ties. We all know how deadly the Pats offense is with 2 TE’s. The Lions look to duplicate that.

22. Miami Dolphins: Forrest Lamp, OL, Western Kentucky. The Dolphins will look to move Tunsil to OT and that opens a spot and a need at OG.

23. New York Giants: Garrett Bolles, OL, Utah. The Giants need to move Flowers over to RT. Bolles has the ability to be a good LT in the NFL.

24. Oakland Raiders: Kevin King, DB, Washington. The Raiders gave up a lot of big plays in the passing game last year. With King’s size and speed. The Raiders look to limit those kind of plays.

25. Houston Texans: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina. I feel Trubusky is better than any QB on the Texans roster right now. So whatever they get out of him will only increase their playoff chances.

26. Seattle Seahawks: Adoree Jackson, DB, USC. The Seahawks need depth in the secondary. Having Jackson and Lockett would give the Seahawks great flexibility in the return game. This will maybe allow Lockett to focus on his WR skills.

27. Kansas City Chiefs: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech. I believe that Mahomes will be the second QB off the board. I feel his skill set is exactly what Andy Reid wants. He has a quick, but funky, release. He is athletic and can make the throws in the West Coast offense.

28. Dallas Cowboys: TJ Watt, LB/DE. Wisconsin. Is Texas big enough to handle 2 Watt brothers?

29. Green Bay Packers: Marlon Humphrey, DB, Alabama. The Packers will take the best DB available,. After last season’s crazy injury bug in the secondary. Would not be surprised if they hold open tryouts just to get bodies back there.

30. Pittsburgh Steelers: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame. Kizer is Big Ben, but 2 inches shorter. Putting him in a stable environment and culture will help minimize his character issues.

31. Atlanta Falcons: Quincy Wilson, DB, Florida. DB is a deep position this year. After they let the Pats throw wild on them in the Super Bowl the Falcons will add depth in the secondary.

32. New Orleans Saints: Takkarist McKinley, LB, UCLA. The Saints will look to add to their pass rush after going offense with their second pick. In a division with Cam, Ryan, and Winston. You need all the pass rushers you can get.
