Mock Drafts are often ridiculed, made-fun-of and torn apart.  So have your best at my first mock of the year!  2.0 will most likely be done a week before the actual draft and a second round Mock may be created as well.  For now, enjoy:

1 Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma: Don’t think this works out long run and they regret not keeping Rosen.

2 49ers – Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State: Allen is the better of the edge rushers, but believing that the 49ers go with the “bigger name” here just “because.”

3 Jets – Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky: Ends up being one of the best Jets draft picks in about a decade.

4 Raiders – Montez Sweat, Edge, Miss State: Raiders could’ve went Quinnen Williams here, but when you have to play against Pat Mahomes and Philip Rivers twice a year – getting the pass-rusher makes more sense.

5 Buccaneers – Brian Burns, Edge, Fl State: Another team passes on Williams but this is because they acquired Vea Via last season.

6 Giants – Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama: After trading some draft capital to the Cardinals for Josh Rosen, the Giants have the ability to draft the best interior defensive lineman in the draft.

7 Jaguars – TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa: They gave Foles the contract and truly believe he’ll be the guy to bring them to the playoffs, they help him out by giving him the best tight end in the class as his security blanket.

8 Lions – Devon White, LB, LSU:Might over-pursue or at times is overly aggressive, but he has the speed of a running back at the linebacker position and for a defensive mind like Matt Patricia to make it work.

9 Bills – Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida: Makes sense to get the best tackle in the draft and have him block for young franchise quarterback.

10 Broncos – DK Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss: Not saying Metcalf isn’t or won’t be good, but this is a reach at ten that we all can see John Elway making. Elway needs to give Flacco some weapons, something new and something shiny – eh, it doesn’t matter, Flacco stinks, but so does Elway as a GM at this point.

11 Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State: He’s a New Jersey kid, but as far as football goes, he’s an Ohio kid. He goes from Ohio State to the Cincinnati Bengals, in a move that solidifies the end of the Andy Dalton era.

12 Packers – Ed Oliver, DT, Houston: Void at this position and Oliver just might be one of those players who stays in Green Bay for the long haul.

13 Dolphins – Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: Some have Drew Lock ahead of Jones and that’s okay. I just saw more out of Jones to be “they guy” than Lock. Either way, they are both marginal at best and the Dolphins are a sorry franchise, so it doesn’t matter.

14 Falcons – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson: He had an impressive game against an impressive offensive line in the National Championship game. Falcons need a disruptor on defense.

15 Washington – Will Grier, QB, West Virginia: Redskins will probably force the issue here and take a quarterback. Redskins, along with the Bengals and Dolphins are all teams that I like to up in this draft to take a quarterback. This is all dependent on what the Giants do this off-season.

16 Panthers – Rashan Gary, DT/DE, Michigan: Predicting that Gary slips this low only because of his actual production on the field last year was underwhelming – although the expectations were probably unrealistic. He’s an athlete that this defense can put just about anywhere though.

17 Giants (via Browns) – Devin Bush, LB, Michigan: t’s easy to believe that the Giants go and take a wide receiver here, but why not just bolster a young defense and pair previous draft pick Quinnen Williams with Michigan product Devin Bush. He’s the type of athletic and smart linebacker that can be a team leader for years to come.

18 Vikings – Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama: Give Cousins time. In the pocket, not in years. He doesn’t get it done this year, you got problems.

19 Titans – Jaylon Ferguson, DE, Louisiana Tech: A reach here, but this is the player they want (in my mind for no reason what so ever).  They need to solidify this position for the long term.  Ferguson has a first round grade from some teams, and if one of those teams are the Titans, they might not want to wait to the second round to see if he’s there.

20 Steelers – Paris Campbell, WR, Ohio State: Steelers want to take AJ Brown here, but they just had issues with an A. Brown, so why even tempt irony like that.

21 Seahawks – Cody Ford, G/T, Oklahoma: This team’s offensive line is a joke and it’s been a neglected position for a few years now.

22 Ravens – AJ Brown, WR, Ole Miss: Ravens get the better of the wide-outs between picks 20 and 22

23 Texans – Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson: If he gets passed his own issues, he’ll be a legit defensive lineman in the league.

24 Raiders (via Bears) – David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State: Some have Harris as the number one back – I don’t – Montgomery is a three down back with exceptional receiving skills as well.

25 Eagles – Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama: As much as I like Josh Adams, I think the Eagles may just take the best running back available here to help establish a better balance of offense and a sense of security for Carson Wentz. Eagles are happy with either Montgomery or Jacobs here.

26 Colts – Greedy Williams, CB , LSU: Better corners here, but Colts go with Greedy.

27 Raiders (via Cowboys) – Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson: An athletic defensive end who can play linebacker and give this Raiders defense some versatility

28 Chargers – Irv Smith, TE, Alabama: Whether Hunter Henry gets back to his older form or not – this would be a good look for the Chargers to add a great route running tight end, with size and strength.

29 Chiefs – DeAndre Backer, CB, Georgia: Might have undershot his value here, but thats what second Mock Drafts are made for!

30 Packers (via Saints) – Andre Dillard, T, Washington State: Rodgers got a hit a lot and had to move around more than he wanted. The Vikings and Bears have edge rushers who can get at anybody, so the Packers got to protect their guy.

31 Rams – Byron Murphy, CB, Washington: He’s a ball hawk at corner and the Rams want to give their offense the ball as much as they can.

32 Patriots – John Oliver, TE, San Jose State: This is what I wrote before Gronkowski announced his retirement: “Best receiving tight end in the draft. With rumors of Gronk retiring every year (and him seemingly hurt every other year) this pick makes sense. You can either pair Oliver with Gronk, or if Gronk falls, use him as a replacement. Iowa’s Noah Fant isn’t strong enough as a blocker and i just believe Oliver will be better, long term, than UCLA’s Caleb Wilson”  Replacing Gronk would be an impossible task, but needing to fill the void of what has become the most important part of their aerial attack will be a necessity.
