There is a love/hate relationship with mock drafts. Nobody really likes them, but we click on every single mock draft that comes our way. This mock draft features a couple trades, a couple head-scratchers, a few no-brainers, and everything in between.

This mock is what I would think happens. At least, something along those lines. It’s more to give you an idea of where teams are looking position-wise. For the picks outside of the box, it’s to help you look at things from a different point of view. It is focused more on fit rather than need. So a team might take “Player A” because that player helps them more than reaching for a need.


The Dallas Cowboys trade the 28th and 60th overall picks to the Tennessee Titans for the 18th overall pick. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade the 19th, 84th and 125th overall picks to the Arizona Cardinals for the 13th overall pick. 

1. Cleveland Browns – Myles Garrett, Edge Defender, Texas A&M

Garrett has a lot more flaws than the media will lead you to believe. I don’t think he’s this can’t-miss prospect that he’s being made out to be. He’s a good player. He’s incredibly explosive and covers a lot of ground. His effort is questionable, and his moves leave something to be desired. But in a sport where potential matters, Garrett is the pick. If the Browns believe in their quarterback, they should take him here. Garrett will slide into a role opposite Jamie Collins, and that should instantly give the Browns one heck of an athletic pass rushing duo.

    No way cards pass on foster and take peppers. Peppers is a joke in the first. He doesn’t have a position. Foster is a future All Pro.

    As a Cowboys fan, “NO WAY” can they afford to give up the 60th. Pick to move up to get Adams. I like Adams, but for a team with that many holes on it, especially on defense, they’re goi g to need it. I remember in 2012 i thought giving up their second round pick to move up to get Morris Claiborne was a mistake and that’s if he would’ve worked out. I would’ve given up a 1st. and a 3rd. In fact, with the holes the Cowboys have, i’m in favor of them getting an extra 1st., 2nd., or 3rd. round pick and plugging their obvious holes, not getting rid of their picks. As for the rest of this mock? Horrible and i don’t like it at all. Hope it doesn’t turn out this way.

    “Money matters in the NFL, and there’s no cornerback or defensive lineman that I can see the NFL taking in the top 5.”

    You just mocked Marshon Lattimore to the Bears at #3. Did you mean to say no “other cornerback besides Marshon Lattimore?”

    lol does anyone see mike williams here. No kizer or Trubisky. I am a positive person but this draft is a joke. But if this happens I will be super happy cause my Rams will be able to get Mike Williams

    If the Browns pass up Mitchell Trubisky and Jamal Adams to take Pat Freaking Mahomes I will lose my mind. He is at best the fourth best QB in this draft. If you just care about arm strength you end up with Brandon Weeden.

      Agree 100%. Not only does this mock have them passing up Trubisky but Adams as well? Not likely.

    Garrett won’t be lining up opposite Jamie Collins exactly. The Browns are switching to a 4-3 in which Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah will be DE and Collins will be a linebacker. Still, indeed a good foundation for a defense.

    Could you please tell me what your qualifications are, to be second guessing EVERY “credible” NFL talent evaluator ? When you see this kind of consensus (like there is with Garrett), the pick is almost always a hit. When I hear a respected former GM like Charlie Casserly say Garrett is a better prospect than Clowney, Mario Williams, and Julius Peppers, I take that seriously !

    The only people claiming he is overrated are some of my fellow Browns fans. The “less than thoughtful” ones. They claim he disappeared in big games…….namely the 2016 Alabama game. According to them he was “dominated” by Alabama’s LT Cam Robinson. But they were just going by what their untrained eyes were showing them.

    What they failed to see was the Tide running the ball 56 times. They also threw it less than 20 times. On 8 of those pass plays, Garrett and Robinson were matched up 1 on 1. Of those 8 plays, Garrett managed to get pressure on the quarterback 3 times; which is fairly good. He also registered 7 total tackles, including one for a loss down around the goal line. So was he dominate against Bama ? No. But he also was not a flop either. And remember, he was not even supposed to play due to an ankle injury, but did anyway. So that should say something to the people who question his effort.

    The above information was not collected by me. I read some of of it, but most of it came via the NFL Network show- “Path to the Draft”, and the show’s analyst Daniel Jeremiah. You see, he IS an ex-scout, and has the credentials to break down tape. I do not have those qualifications. All the opinions I have on the NFL draft, are bases entirely on the information I gather from the pre-draft magazines, and on-line/television draft sites/shows. And from those sources I weed out the real “experts”, from the pretend ones. And too me the determining factor is experience (how long a person has been doing this), and credentials (who have you worked for in the past, and what is your defining accomplishments in the field).

    So, to answer my question about your qualifications, just tell me………. How much experience you have, and what your credentials are.
