Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

4th

This is a hunch based on the talk that Ekwonu is the player coach Doug Pederson wants. Even with the signing of Cam Robinson to a long-term deal, this doesn’t preclude a pick of Ekwonu. He could start at right tackle or left guard.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’7″

/ 260 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Kayvon Thibodeaux will be in play here, but in the end I think they will take the local kid. Hutchinson will liven up a pass rush that badly needs it.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 272 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

1st

There is a chance they could go corner here, but in Lovie Smith’s defense the pass rushers matter more. Walker is a projection of sorts since he didn’t have a lot of sacks at Georgia, but he is a physical player.

Oregon

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They have to get more production off the edge, so why not take a player who can provide it? He would fit perfectly in Robert Saleh’s defense.

Mississippi State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 307 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They have been linked to this player for a long time. With Andrew Thomas at left tackle, they can play him on the right side. That would give them a nice combo.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 337 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

They will consider moving down, but in this mock they are stuck, so they end up with the best tackle in the class. Neal will step in and start right away at left tackle.

Cincinnati

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

In their new system under Wink Martindale, they need to be able to lock up and play man. Gardner can do that. So they pass on an edge here to take an outstanding cover corner.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They will consider a quarterback here — probably Malik Willis — but I think they will pass in the end. The pick will be Stingley, who can step in and pair with A.J. Terrell to give them a nice duo at corner.

Florida State

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They might consider a quarterback — Sam Howell is one I hear they like — but in the end they pass to take a player who will help solidify the pass rush. They need help in that area and Johnson is coming off an impressive season.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 183 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

They could go corner here, but I will give them a top receiver to help Zach Wilson. Garrett Wilson can fly and would really be a nice asset to the passing game.

USC

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 219 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They could consider Kyle Hamilton here, but they need to get a big-bodied receiver to help Carson Wentz. London will be a nice red-zone threat.

Washington

• Soph

• 5’11”

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

4th

Corner should be the pick, and with the way the board has played out, McDuffie is the next one up. He will play opposite Patrick Peterson.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

This is a bit of a fall for Hamilton, but the Texans can use a player like him in the John Lynch role that Lovie Smith had in Tampa. Hamilton can be really good near the line of scrimmage, which is a must in a division with Derrick Henry and Jonathan Taylor.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 341 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They brought back Michael Pierce, and Calais Campbell re-signed, but they need a young power player. They’ve always had them when they’ve been good on defense. Davis is that guy.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 179 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

This is a bit of a risk, but the Eagles can afford it with the receivers they have. They would be getting the best receiver in the class. Were it not for his knee injury suffered in the championship game, he would be gone in the top 10.

Tulsa

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

46th

POSITION RNK

10th

He is a tough, nasty player who could step in as the left tackle for the departed Terron Armstead. The Saints have a major hole there that has to be addressed. NFL people love Smith more than the draft analysts.

Northern Iowa

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 321 lbs

The right tackle spot is a big problem for the Chargers. They need to get help there, and Penning could move from the left side to the right side for the Chargers to pair with last year’s top pick, Rashawn Slater.

Purdue

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

4th

There is some talk that Karlaftis could fall out of the first round. I don’t see it. He’s too talented. The Eagles would be getting a nice addition to their front.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 187 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Saints need more speed in their passing game, which Olave can provide. He would team up with Michael Thomas, who is a bigger receiver, to give them a nice mix at the position.

Liberty

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 219 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

1st

The Steelers have put a lot of work in on Willis, which is why this might seem to be the pick. I am a little hesitant because they like bigger quarterbacks, but I will spot him in here.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 237 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They need speed at linebacker and Lloyd is the type of player to bring it. He can also rush at times, and we know how Bill Belichick loves versatility.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

4th

Burks is a bigger receiver who can give Aaron Rodgers another target. He runs well enough that he ran away from SEC corners, so it works.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 307 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

4th

The interior of their defense needs help and Wyatt is a force inside. Were it not for some character issues, he might go a lot higher.

Boston College

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

7th

The interior of their line — aside from Zack Martin — is an issue. Johnson was a college guard, but a lot of teams view him as a center. He can really amp up their run game.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 194 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

He has some injury concerns, but the Bills have been linked to him in league circles. They have a major need at corner, which is why this would make a ton of sense. They could also consider Kaiir Elam and Kyler Gordon.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 323 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

6th

They have issues at guard and also could use a right tackle. Green looks the part for both spots. If you want to run the ball with Derrick Henry, you need big bodies up front.

Washington

• Soph

• 6’0″

/ 194 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

39th

POSITION RNK

7th

They have a couple corners coming up on contract years, which is why this would make sense. Gordon can play inside and outside in their defense.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

93rd

POSITION RNK

11th

They have a good off-the-ball linebacker in De’Vondre Campbell, but why not add another speedy player to the mix? Walker is explosive and will help a defense that needs more speed on the second level.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 191 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

36th

POSITION RNK

6th

He is a long corner who can match up in man coverage. With Charvarius Ward gone to the 49ers, they need help in the secondary with Derek Carr, Russell Wilson and Justin Herbert in the division.

Michigan

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 250 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

44th

POSITION RNK

6th

Ojabo is coming off a torn Achilles tendon suffered at his pro day. That injury will keep him out likely until midseason. But this Chiefs team is all about the playoffs. They can wait for him to get healthy.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 296 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

3rd

This pick would totally give the line a complete makeover. They signed Ted Karras, but he can play guard, too. Linderbaum would be ideal for Joe Burrow and that line.

Pittsburgh

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

2nd

After passing on a quarterback earlier in the draft, they take one in this spot by landing Pickett. This would be a great pick for the Lions if it played out this way. He is NFL ready.
