Before we get started, I would like to just thank you for taking a look at my final mock! These mocks take a lot of time and effort, so I hope you enjoy and I hope everyone has a great draft night. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @G_Falcetano and follow our Twitter page @DraftAddicts. Let me know what you think and be sure to share with others!
- Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
Burrow has been the pick since the Bengals finished they’re season 2-14 and secured the first pick in the draft. It’s time to get a new QB and why not get the guy who just had arguably the greatest college season of all time? Burrow goes #1.
2. Washington Redskins: Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State
Young at 2 is a no brainer. The Redskins add the best player in the draft at 2 and instantly get the guy who will be their biggest playmaker on the defensive side of the ball. Their front 7 is already solid, but adding Young will make them one of, if not the best in all of football.
3. Detroit Lions: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
Lions could possibly trade back here with the Dolphins or another team who may want to get a tackle before the Giants pick at 4. Being there are no trades in this mock, we have the Lions staying put and taking the best CB by a mile, with Jeff Okudah. Lions just traded Slay, and adding Okudah is a massive upgrade for them.
4. New York Giants: Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
I’ve been seeing a lot of rumors flying around regarding the Giants and the fourth pick. While it may still be unclear what the Giants will do on draft day, there are a couple of strong possibilities. They could trade back, take Isaiah Simmons or stay put and take an offensive lineman at 4. That being said, many Giants fans won’t be pleased with this pick (and to be honest I won’t blame them), with Isaiah Simmons still on the board. Giants decide to bolster their Oline and take Wirfs, allowing Daniel Jones more time in the pocket to make plays and protect their QB of the future. I think Gettleman doubles down on Danny Dimes and wants to get him some help, thus taking the top tackle on their board, being Wirfs.
5. Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
There’s been a lot of smoke and rumors regarding the Dolphins and this pick leading up till today (the day of the draft), but I don’t think a lot of it is true. There’s two options I see that could happen here: they stay put and hope Tua is there at 5 and take him, or they move up to 3 for an offensive tackle ahead of big blue. Ultimately Tua at 5 is a stellar pick (assuming he can stay healthy) as the Alabama alum was projected as a top 2 pick at 5, following his past injuries while in college.
6. Los Angeles Chargers: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
I don’t think Tyrod gets a shot to start on the Chargers, especially with Justin Herbert still on the board. Herbert at 6 is too enticing for them to pass up, and with Herbert having an insane amount of potential, I think it’s a smart move for LA, to go and grab their QB of the future.
7. Carolina Panthers: Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson
Isaiah Simmons falls to 7 (I believe that he’s a top 5 player in the class) and will be a huge impact in lue of Luke Kuechly’s retirement. He is too big of a stud to pass up here. Isaiah is a special player who can turn a whole defense around being the playmaker he is.
8. Arizona Cardinals: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
The Cardinals offense has insane potential, but they have to do a better job at protecting Kyler Murray. Jedrick Wills is a pretty athletic Olineman who will help protect Kyler much more than their line from last season.
9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
This pick may seem like a shocker to some people here, but I think it’s the right move to make. Personally I think Kinlaw is better than Brown and at 9 I think there is a strong possibility of the Jaguars selecting him here.
10. Cleveland Browns: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
Like I said in my last mock, the last time the Browns took an offensive tackle with the last name Thomas, he turned out to be a future Hall of Famer. Now I’m not sitting here saying that Andrew is going to be THAT good or even on the level close to Joe Thomas, but I do think he will be a very strong anchor for an Oline and will do a great job blocking for Baker the next few years.
11. New York Jets: Ceedee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
CeeDee is the first wide receiver to go off the board here at 11, and the Jets finally get the big name #1 wide receiver they’ve been looking for, for a while now. CeeDee is an electric wide receiver who can do it all and I believe he is the most NFL ready WR in this draft, who also has the most potential.
12. Las Vegas Raiders: Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
First off let me start by saying this. If the first name I hear when Goodell announces this pick is “A.J.”, I am turning the draft off and not watching the rest. That being said, I REALLY hope we don’t make another mistake; Derrick Brown isn’t the flashy pick, but if he makes it to 12, I think the Raiders will definitely take him. If CeeDee was available here he would be the pick I believe. There is still a great chance they might take one of the other two receivers (Ruggs & Jeudy); but with Brown falling here, I think they finish upgrading the DT spot and get a guy who can take up double teams all day. But as we all know, it’s the Raiders and who really knows what they’ll do here.
13. San Francisco 49ers: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
I know a lot of Raider fans will be furious that they didn’t take Jeudy with the previous pick, and is going to the previous Bay Area Rivalry opponent. Jeudy makes it to 13 and the 49ers get their true #1 wide receiver to help try and push them back to the Super Bowl. There are a lot of reports about an apparent knee injury that he suffered back in 2018, but according to doctors, there should be no concern; I really don’t see him falling past this pick honestly. *reported by @RapSheet*
14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
While I was typing this mock, I happened to glance at my phone and thought I was hallucinating… unfortunately I was not. Gronk makes his return to the NFL and pairs back up with Tom Brady in Tampa, as Brady looks to get his 7th ring. That being said, I believe the Buccaneers will want to secure their line and look to do so by adding the athletic freak Mekhi Becton. Standing at a massive 6’7, weighing 364 pounds and running a 5.1(!!!) 40 yard dash, he will be a starter very quickly, and look to protect the GOAT.
15. Denver Broncos: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama
The AFC west will be even harder to win after this pick, having to deal with Tyreek Hill twice a year, and now having to deal with Ruggs twice a year too. Ruggs is insanely fast, running a 4.27 at the combine, but his play on the field may be even faster than what the numbers say. Ruggs upgrades the WR position for the Broncos and is the third of the big three wide receivers to come off the board.
16. Atlanta Falcons: CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
There are a lot of rumors swirling around with the Falcons pick, but the biggest one is the Falcons possibly trading up to the second pick to possibly take Young. I don’t think that trade is really even possible, mainly because of how far they are away from the second pick, they’d have to give up an insane amount of capital. If the Falcons stay put and decide to take a player here at 16, I think CJ Henderson will be the pick. Henderson is a great coverage corner and being Atlanta could use the help in the secondary, I think they take CJ here.
17. Dallas Cowboys: K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU
With the Cowboys on the board at 17, I believe this would be between 2 players available. They could take either K’Lavon or Xavier here, but I think a pass rusher would be the safer pick between the two, which is why I think it makes sense to add Chaisson. Though he is a bit raw, and could need some time to develop, I think his potential is too great to pass up here.
18. Miami Dolphins: Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
In my first mock draft, I had McKinney falling to the Seahawks, but I don’t really think that’s going to happen at all now. McKinney is a great addition for the Dolphins, since they got rid of Reshad Jones and Minkah Fitzpatrick, I believe it would be wise for them to take the best safety on the board with their second first round pick at 18.
19. Las Vegas Raiders: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
This one might be a shocker but I am trying to speak it into existence. I think a lot of people don’t give the credit that Fulton deserves honestly, and I believe he is a top 3 corner in the class. He played in the SEC and played very well for his time playing this year (besides the national championship). That being said, LSU has always had outstanding DBs to come out of their program and I do not believe that Fulton will disappoint. Raiders take a corner to make their defense much better than what it was last year, and get a good coverage guy alongside Mullen.
20. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU
There has not been as much hype behind Gladney as some other corners this year, but that’s ok since he still has a shot to go top 20, and just makes it with the Jaguars picking here. After trading away Ramsey, the Jags look to get back another big baller, someone who is hungry on the field and wants to make plays. That is exactly who Gladney is and he falls right into their laps at 20.
21. Philadelphia Eagles: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
After missing out on the big 3 WRs of this class, the Eagles opt to go for the next best wide receiver available, being Justin Jefferson. Jefferson played well while at LSU, but does have some things to work on. That being said I think he’s the playmaker that the Eagles really need, as they seem to be lacking a big name #1 WR. I think Jefferson will be that guy.
22. Minnesota Vikings: Josh Jones, OT, Houston
The Vikings could use this pick to strengthen their corners, take a WR to replace the void left by the Diggs trade, or they can strengthen their offensive line. I believe they opt to take an offensive lineman and end up taking Josh Jones out of Houston; he is an instant upgrade at a much needed position for the Vikings, and he could become a special player.
23. New England Patriots: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
Perhaps two of the biggest questions going into draft day are, where will Jordan Love be taken and who will be the starting QB for the Patriots this year? Both of these questions are answered right here, as Love falls right into the Patriots laps. I believe if he is still on the board, Belichick will take the successor to the GOAT, and take Love given his star potential.
24. New Orleans Saints: Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
The Saints could use a linebacker; especially one that is fast and could make plays. A lot of people may think that Patrick Queen could go here, but the way Kenneth Murray plays, makes me feel like Sean Payton will fall in love with his play style. Murray is the pick here.
25. Minnesota Vikings: A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
The Vikings opted to take an offensive lineman with their first pick in this draft, with this pick they look to replace Xavier Rhodes. There is another CB that could be in play here (Jaylon Johnson) but I don’t think they go with him.
26. Miami Dolphins: Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
The Dolphins finally take an offensive lineman, thus making this the 6th Olineman to go in the draft. Ezra Cleveland might be a bit of a shocker here (there are a lot of reports saying he is practically a lock in round 1 at this point), but I think this is the right choice being they just invested a top 5 pick in their QB of the future.
27. Seattle Seahawks: Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
This I believe is a good pick for the Seahawks, as I feel as though they are always looking to bolster their offensive line. This time they decide to add Isaiah Wilson from Georgia, who played great during his time in college. Winning in the trenches is usually the key to winning games, and the Seahawks add another guy who looks to step up and protect Russell Wilson.
28. Baltimore Ravens: Patrick Queen, LB, LSU
This pick I believe is a no brainer. If Patrick Queen is here, the Ravens will not mess it up and they will select him. After losing to the Titans in the divisional round last year, they seem to need some help on the defensive side of the ball, and what I believe they are lacking is their linebacker position. Patrick Queen is a huge upgrade for the Ravens as he is very fast and has great playmaking potential. Queen is the pick here.
29. Tennessee Titans: A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa
After a terrible (and I mean HORRIBLE) combine performance, A.J. Epenesa almost saw himself fall out of the first round. The Titans just lost Jurell Casey, who has been a large staple on their defense for years, and Epenesa could be just the guy they are looking for. A.J. was able to put up good stats and apply good pressure during his time at Iowa, but he does lack athleticism, which is why I believe he falls here.
30. Green Bay Packers: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
I had the Packers taking Reagor in my previous mock, which was Pre-Combine, and afterwards his stock rose, but I still see how he could fall to 30. Reagor is a special player and I think he would be much higher if he was on a better team throughout college; Packers get a steal here with Reagor.
31. San Francisco 49ers: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
I believe that Jaylon Johnson is a better player than A.J. Terrell personally and have him ranked as a top 5 CB in the class. If he falls here, the 49ers potentially could be getting themselves a steal with him, as they look to get someone to bolster their secondary.
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Ceasar Ruiz, OG, Michigan
This isn’t a crazy pick, but I think the first true interior Olineman goes here to the Chiefs, as they look to continue to protect the best QB in the league and try to go back to back in the 2020 season.
