Kliff Kingsbury’s desire to reunite with Murray is either the worst kept secret in the NFL or a genius ploy to increase the value of this pick. Murray will be picked first. Probably by the Cards.
Bosa was the consensus top player in this draft heading into the season. His talent and the success of his brother Joey with the Chargers is enough for him to hold his spot as the top non-QB drafted.
After making an off-season splash with Leveon Bell and drafting their franchise QB last year, the Jets will undoubtedly address the other side of the ball in this defense heavy draft. They need help getting to the passer and that’s what they’ll get in Allen.
Oakland is another team that made huge moves on offense but their defense needs help on the front lines. Gary will go a long way in bolstering their line, although he lacks technique and is overflowing with athletic ability.
The Dolphins need a QB and have since Dan Marino retired. They will move up here and hope they’ve found their guy on who many believe is the best QB in this draft. Haskins will have growing pains as he learns to see the whole field and move through progressions.
The Giants are going with a lineman here, it’s just a matter of which side of the ball. Williams is just too talented to pass up on here sitting in the six spot. The Giants need to get back to their bread and butter in years past which was a powerful pass rush.
Washington has traded up before for a QB and it proved to be a mistake. History repeats itself. Lock is anything but a lock when advancing to pro ball. He throws an inconsistent, inaccurate ball with a noticeable inability to feel pocket pressure.
Buffalo has not been able to find a stud receiver in a very long time. They will leave this draft with a great WR still eluding them.
10. DEN: LB Devin White, LSU
The true linebacker has been devalued similar to what we’ve seen with running backs in years past. That’s why these LBs hold such great value from Round 1 and even heading into Day 3.
Taylor is one of the best players in this draft and the top O-lineman. Cincy will be thrilled if he’s sitting there when they’re on the clock.
The Packers have purged their top pass rushers and need help in that department. Many believe Sweat is one of the five best players in this draft. He could be a steal here.
The Bucs will trade back and still get a stud on their line. This worked out great for Tampa.
14. ATL: DL Ed Oliver, Houston
Atlanta needs help at DT and Oliver is a stud. The Houston alum could be as good as any tackle in this draft.
The Jags have A glaring hole and it’s their passing attack. They seem to be content with Nick Foles at QB so they either have to give him weapons or protect him. The weapons are more of a need here and they will snag the top TE.
Bush is another high-value pick and fills a need for the Panthers. Panthers fans will be happy with this pick.
17. NYG: QB Daniel Jones, Duke
For whatever reason the Giants are still waiting for Eli to turn the clock back. But it’s time. The team will finally take the first serious step in moving on from the Manning era. Something the rest of the league has already done.
The Vikings’ line took a big step back last year. Williams will help them take a big step forward.
Mocks and scouts have Ferrell all over A the map. I’m right in the middle. I can see the potential and the concerns but he will fill a much needed void for the Titans.
Pitt needs help all over their defense but that D has always been driven by the 3-4 pass rush. The Steelers will roll with Burns rather than add a corner.
Seattle has lost some pretty good safeties over the past few seasons. They will grab the top safety in an effort to rebuild a once great secondary which is now unrecognizable from their glory days.
The Ravens WR corps is atrocious and they’ve never had any luck drafting wideouts. However, they have to at least try to get Jackson some help. They can’t just run on every play.
After taking a hit at corner this offseason the Texans will look for their new franchise corner. Murphy has the talent to be just that.
Oakland needs help in their rushing attack and have the luxury of having a ton of picks to address multiple needs. They’ll add the top back in the draft here.
Philly will address their offensive line here with yet another talented big man in this draft.
Lawrence is an absolute monster with massive upside. The Colts have nailed their last couple of drafts and this is the kind of player that can push them right over the top into the Super Bowl sooner rather than later.
27. OAK: TE Noah Fant, Iowa
The Raiders will address another hole on offense here. All these picks allow them to improve less than premium positions.
The Chargers will add one of the top true guards in the draft here passing up on some talented DBs. This is the direction they go.
Thompson is a difference maker on a secondary that desperately needs him in KC. He will be a much needed reinforcement.
Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb have moved on and it will be tough for the Packers to pass on Brown. They need help behind Davante Adams and this should help.
With Ndamukong Suh gone from an already poor run defense the Rams will almost certainly address their D-line.
This would be another steal for the Pats but no matter who they pick I won’t be questioning Bill Belichick.
