Earlier we had listed the first 15 draft picks with a trade. Let’s see what happens with the rest of the teams and who will get drafted from 16-32. So here is the final attempt in Round 1 of the NFL Draft.
ORLANDO BROWN-OT, OKLAHOMA
In Brown’s Pro Day he made up for the horrendous 40-time and made some improvements. But it will be his late father’s former team that will snatch him up for what he can do on the field over numbers.
LAMAR JACKSON, QB, LOUISVILLE
Phillip Rivers is 36 years old and the Chargers have to prepare for his successor. Head coach Anthony Lynn will be looking for a Tyrod Taylor-like skill set and will find it in Jackson. His explosiveness will put teams on notice.
ISAIAH WYNN-OG, GEORGIA
With the Rams bolstering up their defense, the Seahawks have to address the leaky offense they exposed last season. Wynn is an excellent interior lineman to protect Wilson to get a play in motion.
ROQUAN SMITH-LB, GEORGIA
The Cowboys addressed the WR needs with Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson. The need to address the linebacker situation is next. Smith has the speed they need and the ability to play fast up front.
HAROLD LANDRY-DE, BOSTON COLLEGE
New head coach Matt Patricia is going to address the defense with a dual threat landing Landry alongside Ziggy Ansah. The edge rusher can play standing up or hand in the ground. The match up will be deadly.
WILL HERNANDEZ-OG, UTEP
The Bengals need help in the interior who is a powerful run blocker an can create holes for running back Joe Mixon. Bengals need to get back to the run game and a balanced offense.
MIKE McGLINCHEY-OT, NOTRE DAME
Solid offensive tackle who will provide more protection for McCarron or Allen.
MARCUS DAVENPORT-EDGE, UTSA
Davenport is a disruptive pass rusher with length, athleticism and a sack master. Rams will make their defense number one in the league.
CHRISTIAN KIRK-WR, TEXAS A&M
Even though some may see a defensive end or corner here, Panthers need a top WR to complement Cam Newton‘s arm and Kirk is the guy.
SAM HUBBARD-DE, OHIO STATE
An explosive pass rusher who could see some substantial double-digit sack numbers off the edge. Spending the year behind Julius Peppers would be ideal for his career.
MAURICE HURST-DT, MICHIGAN
Hurst is an elite athlete and interior pass rusher who has a strong football IQ and can be a day one starter. With Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn gone, the Falcons have to address this immediately.
MIKE GESICKI-TE, PENN STATE
Coby Fleener was invisible last season and Saints need a good solid tight-end to give Drew Brees an edge. He has length, speed and explosive height to produce some end zone magic.
RASHAAN EVANS-LB, ALABAMA
Shazier will be out for the entire 2018 season and the Steelers need help on the inside. Evans has the toughness, rush capability and speed to get the job done.
KOLTON MILLER-OT, UCLA
QB Blake Bortles are in need of a good swing tackle option that can move to the right tackle position. Miller. His big frame and powerful hand placement may get him as a late starter.
CONNER WILLIAMS-OT, TEXAS
Mobile and hostile tackle our of Texas. Agile when blocking on the run he can help the Vikings set new QB Kirk Cousins for success.
JAIRE ALEXANDER-CB, LOUISVILLE
With Malcom Butler at the Titans, the Patriots need another corner with speed. He put on a great show at the NFL Combine
DARIUS LEONARD, LB, SOUTH CAROLINA STATE
Leonard has the NFL physique and showed very good pass-coverage ability at the Senior Bowl. Has a sideline-to-sideline mentality and would fill in right away as a three-down linebacker.
And there you have it. All 32 picks and subject to change via trades. The Eagles set the standard on how to put a winning team together and teams are taking notice. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out.
