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.
