IT’S MOCK DRAFT SEASON, BABY

In response to Moorhead dropping his mock draft yesterday, I’ve decided to throw my hat into the ring. After that peasant decided to rank Wild Berry as the #2 Pop-Tart flavor of all time, I wanted to knock this so-called “rankings guru” down a peg or two.

For this mock draft (which is obviously subject to change), I looked at each team’s positional needs according to Pro Football Focus and chose accordingly, based on CBS Sports Prospect rankings. So here goes my entire reputation:

#1: Arizona Cardinals – Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State

#2: San Francisco 49ers – Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky

#3: New York Jets – D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

#4: Oakland Raiders – Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

#5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

#6: New York Giants – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

#7: Jacksonville Jaguars – Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

#8: Detroit Lions – Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

#9: Buffalo Bills – Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

#10: Denver Broncos – Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan

#11: Cincinnati Bengals – Devin White, ILB, LSU

#12: Green Bay Packers – Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

#13: Miami Dolphins – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

#14: Atlanta Falcons – Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State

#15: Washington Redskins – Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

#16: Carolina Panthers – Deionte Thompson, FS, Alabama

#17: Cleveland Browns – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

#18: Minnesota Vikings – Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma

#19: Tennessee Titans – A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

#20: Pittsburgh Steelers – Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

#21: Seattle Seahawks – Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State

#22: Baltimore Ravens – Jachai Polite, DE, Florida

#23: Houston Texans – Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

#24: Oakland Raiders (from Bears) – Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma

#25: Philadelphia Eagles – Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

#26: Indianapolis Colts – Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State

#27: Oakland Raiders (from Cowboys) – Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

#28: Los Angeles Chargers – Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

#29: Kansas City Chiefs – Devin Bush, OLB, Michigan

#30: Green Bay Packers (from Saints) – Brian Burns, DE, Florida State

#31: New England Patriots – Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

#32: Los Angeles Rams – Dexter Williams, DT, Clemson

A few notes:

  • I’m only guessing the Jets will take D.K. Metcalf because of their probable desire to surround Sam Darnold with offensive weapons. I realize this wide receiver class is relatively weak, so taking Metcalf that high might be kind of a stretch, even though he’s probably the best receiver in the draft.
  • Greedy Williams is likely to fall in the draft because of his perceived “character issues”, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he isn’t taken this high.
  • Kyler Murray will probably only slip to the Dolphins because of his whole Oakland A’s situation (and his height too, probably).
  • This mock draft will most likely be completely wrong, just like every mock draft, ever.
  • I’m devastated that Trace McSorley probably won’t go until at least the sixth round after his Senior Bowl performance. I’ll just keep praying for a turnaround I guess…

Mock drafts are such a tease. I just want the real thing already, dammit.
