Onebar and Lupagus are at it again with a monthly Ultimate Mock Draft. Each takes turns filling each teams needs and making their attempt to predict who each takes. Check back as we update this throughout the draftseason, as we get closer we add more and more rounds.
1. Cleveland Browns (Onebar) – Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
I think it’s time for the Browns to go with more of a sure thing with the #1 overall pick and try to fill the quarterback position in the next few rounds.
2. San Francisco 49ers (Lupagus) – Mitch Trubisky QB, UNC
The 49ers need to start over at QB and as of right now Trubisky is the top signal caller on most draft boards.
3. Chicago Bears (Onebar) – DeShone Kizer QB, Notre Dame
Kizer is the top quarterback on my board and for the Bears to get him at #3 would be the fresh start they need at the position.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars (Lupagus) – Dalvin Cook RB, FSU
This may be a shocker but the Jags have routinely done that in the past. Cook is the most complete back in the Draft and will make life much easier for Bortles and the entire Jaguars offense.
5. Tennessee Titans (from Rams) (Onebar) – Malik Hooker S, Ohio St.
Love me some Hooker, dude is a ballhawk who will be a game changer. Titans no doubt need some help in this department and would be a huge upgrade.
6. New York Jets (Lupagus) – Leonard Fournette RB, LSU
The Jets know Matt Forte’s tank is getting near empty. So they go ahead and grab themselves a power back who can carry the load and make some explosive plays on the ground.
7. San Diego Chargers (Onebar) – Jamal Adams S, LSU
Chargers still need to find their replacement for Eric Weddle, his presence was missed in 2016. Adams wouldn’t only help replace him, but will be better.
8. Carolina Panthers (Lupagus) – Jonathan Allen DE, Alabama
This isn’t the biggest need on the Panthers list, but Allen is too damn good to fall any further down this mock.
9. Cincinnati Bengals (Onebar) – Derek Barnett Edge, Tennessee
Barnett is the pass rusher the Bengals have been looking for, should be able to put up some big ole sack numbers early in his career.
10. Buffalo Bills (Lupagus) – Mike Williams WR, Clemson
The Bills don’t seem happy with Tyrod Taylor and could consider DeShaun Watson here. Instead they get the best receiver on the board and now have one hell of a one-two punch at wideout.
11. New Orleans Saints (Onebar) – Reuben Foster LB, Alabama
Saints defense STILL needs work and their group of linebackers doesn’t get anyone excited. Foster is one of the hotter names and could be one of the better linebackers to come out in a while.
12. Cleveland Browns (from PHI) (Lupagus) – DeShaun Watson QB, Clemson
Watson’s stock is back on the rise after the National Championship game. He is a versatile QB who can make plays with his legs and not just his arm. Watson has the ability to bring some life to this Browns offense from day one.
13. Arizona Cardinals (Onebar) – Patrick Mahomes QB, Texas Tech
Choooooooo! Chooooooooo! I’m all aboard the Mahomes train. Mahomes has the big arm, body, and accuracy and would go to the Cards who depending on Palmer, might have the chance to sit for a year.
14. Philadelphia Eagles (from MN) (Lupagus) – Corey Davis WR, Western Michigan
This is an easy pick. The Eagles need a true no. 1 receiver for their new QB, and Davis has the size, speed, and ball skills to be just that.
15. Indianapolis Colts (Onebar) – Marlon Humphrey CB, Florida St.
Secondary help is still a big need for the Colts, Humphrey does it all well, including stopping the run.
16. Baltimore Ravens (Lupagus) – Tim Williams OLB, Alabama
The Ravens defense needs to get back to it’s dominating ways of yesteryear. Taking a pass rushing linebacker like Williams would be a pick in the right direction.
17. Washington Redskins (Onebar) – Malik McDowell DT,DE, Michigan St.
Washington needs help all across the defense but needs to start up front. McDowell would be able to play anywhere along that line.
18. Tennessee Titans (Lupagus) – Solomon Thomas DE, Stanford
There are quite a few ways the Titans could go with this pick. I could see Peppers being an option as could TE OJ Howard or even WR John Ross. Ultimately the decide to improve their pass rush with the fast rising Thomas.
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Onebar) – John Ross WR, Washington
The Bucs have one of the best up and coming passing games in the league. Look for them to add a bit more youth at the receiver spot.
20. Denver Broncos (Lupagus) – Cam Robinson OT, Alabama
The Broncos offensive line could use some shoring up so they go ahead and grab themselves the top tackle in the Draft.
21. Detroit Lions (Onebar) – Chris Wormley, DE/DT Michigan
Lions made huge strides in 2016, continuing to beef up that defensive line will be a priority come draft day.
22. Miami Dolphins (Lupagus) – OJ Howard TE, Alabama
Howard is simply one of my favorite players in this Draft. He was vastly underused at Alabama and is a mismatch waiting to happen in the NFL. He would make life much easier for Ryan Tannehill and would open up this stale Miami offense.
23. New York Giants (Onebar) – Ryan Ramczyk OT, Wisconsin
The Giants offensive line has a ways to go if they want to continue to push the NFC. In a fairly weak class of tackles, Ramczyk might be their best option at 23.
24. Oakland Raiders (Lupagus) – Teez Tabor CB, Florida
The Raiders ranked towards the bottom of passing yards allowed per game. Adding a talented defender like Tabor to the mix of Amerson and Smith, would improve that number sooner than later.
25. Houston Texans (Onebar) – Jabrill Peppers S, Michigan
Peppers’ stock has dropped a bit due to the fact nobody is quite sure where he will play. With his athleticism and natural talent, I think the Texans could find a cozy little spot for him in their secondary.
26. Seattle Seahawks (Lupagus) – Garett Bolles OT, Utah
The Seahawks reach slightly to address a major need. They are currently scraping by with George Fant and Gary Gilliam as their starting tackles and that just isn’t good enough. Bolles is a strong and mighty blocker who could start real early in his career.
27. Kansas City Chiefs (Onebar) – Zach Cunningham LB, Vanderbilt
Cunningham could be the heir to Derrick Johnson, the Vandy linebacker actually plays pretty similar to Johnson. Needs to beef up but he makes plays and is always around the ball.
28. Dallas Cowboys (Lupagus) – Taco Charlton DE, Michigan
The Cowboys are either going to snatch some secondary help here or take a pass rusher. To me pass rush is the bigger issue so they take this mexican delicacy.
29. Pittsburgh Steelers (Onebar) – Adoree Jackson CB, USC
Speedy ball hawk who can also help as a return man. Still a little rough around the edges but once the Steelers polish him up could be a number 1 corner.
30. Green Bay Packers (Lupagus) – Christian McCaffery RB, Stanford
The Packers defense is already extremely tough to defend. Giving Rodgers a versatile weapon like McCaffery would make it damn near impossible.
31. Atlanta Falcons (Onebar) – DeMarcus Walker EDGE, Florida St.
Beasley had a coming out party in 2016, but the Falcons still ranked in the bottom half for team sacks. The offense is stacked, so look for them to continue to bolster that defense.
32. New England Patriots (Lupagus) – Takkarist McKinley OLB, UCLA
The Patriots got rid of Chandler Jones and Jamie Collins in the last year. It’s time to re-stock the pass rushing cupboard.
46. Minnesota Vikings (Onebar) – Forrest Lamp OT, Western Kentucky
This dude is built like a wall. Can play multiple spots along the line, and it just so happens the Vikings need help along the entire line. Longterm the Vikings would look for him to man left tackle.
