Round 1

1Los Angeles RamsQBJared Goff #California
 (from Titans) The Rams pay a hefty price to trade up and select the new face of their franchise as they move into a new market that supports winners. Case Keenum and Nick Foles won't cut it. Goff has all the tools and experiences to take a franchise that hasn't won a division title in some time and take them to the promise land.
2Philadelphia EaglesQBCarson WentzNorth Dakota State
 (from Browns) The Eagles make a big splash following the Rams to move up. With the amount they gave up to make the move, you can safely assume they're targeting Carson Wentz. Wentz is a proto-typical passer with the right size, arm strength and knowledge to be a franchise passer and has a higher ceiling than Goff. That said, he's a risk since he hasn't gone against the top competition playing at North Dakota St (a 5 time FCS champion), and may struggle to adjust the speed of the NFL.
3Los Angeles ChargersOTLaremy Tunsil #Ole Miss
 The Chargers get their choice of the top non-QBs in the draft class. Both Tunsil and Ramsey fit huge needs but protecting Phillip Rivers' blindside is more important. Doesn't hurt that Tunsil is also the BPA.
4Dallas CowboysDEJoey Bosa #Ohio State
 The Cowboys could take Ramsey or Jack, but with the recent suspensions at the DE position (Randy Gregory & Demarcus Lawrence: 4 games) they are cornered to take Bosa, who has All-Pro potential, but also some character questions.
5Jacksonville JaguarsCBJalen Ramsey #Florida State
 One of the best players in the draft, Ramsey is a difference maker that immediately upgrades the Jaguars secondary. Ramsey excels as a press cover corner with the speed and agility to stick with NFL receivers and shut them down.
6Baltimore RavensDEDeForest BucknerOregon
 Buckner has the size and ability to be a perfect fit as a 3-4 defensive end. He can hold the point, and stop the run with excellent athleticism. With a stronger line, the linebackers should be able to make more plays on defense.
7San Francisco 49ersOLBMyles Jack #UCLA
 The Niners are delighted that a top 3 talent in Jack falls to them. He may have injury concerns coming off of an ACL, but if he can return to form he's a perennial Pro-Bowler with his dynamic cover skills. He has lined up at linebacker, safety, and nickel corner.
8Cleveland BrownsOTRonnie Stanley #Notre Dame
 (from Dolphins via Eagles) The Browns collect a bounty of picks from the Eagles and still are able grab themselves a very talented LT prospect with boat loads of talent. He can play RT immediately and take over for Joe Thomas after he leaves/retires. Some people even prefer Stanley over Tunsil due to Tunsil's off the field issues.
9Tampa Bay BuccaneersCBEli Apple #Ohio State
 A Big Ten shutdown corner who handled the receivers he faced and forcing opposing quarterbacks to look away from him. Has the talent to match receivers and the strength to be physical with stronger receivers.
10New York GiantsDEShaq Lawson #Clemson
 The Giants have always won through their defensive pass rush and they need to get back to that. With Olivier Vernon on board and JPP on the roster for at least one more season, Lawson can play a role similar to Shane Ray's last year as he can learn behind the two veterans, be a change of pace rusher, and be the eventual successor to JPP.
11Chicago BearsOLBLeonard Floyd #Georgia
 2015 Butkus Award finalist that thrives as a rusher (17 sacks and 28.5 tackles for loss at Georgia) and provides the Bears an elite edge rusher that they lacked as they moved to the 3-4 defense. With Floyd, the Bears could once again own the most dangerous linebacking core in the NFL.
12New Orleans SaintsDT/DEJarran ReedAlabama
 Reed is a run stuffing 3-4 defensive end that controls his gap, and has room to improve both in techniques and strength. With some development could become a consistent Pro-Bowler as long as learns how to collapse pockets and catch the quaterback.
13Miami DolphinsRBEzekiel Elliott #Ohio State
 (from Eagles) The Dolphins are ecstatic to take a top 5 talent in Elliott who can not only replace the production left behind by Lamar Miller's departure, but take that running game to a new level. A culture-changing player, Elliott could be just what that offense needs.
14Oakland RaidersILBReggie RaglandAlabama
 The Raiders didnt enjoy the last time they took an Alabama ILB in the first round (Rolando McClain) but Ragland is a high character player and this team's culture has changed. This team's arrow is definitely going up. Ragland brings a tone-setting tackler to an already good defense that includes All-Pro Khalil Mack and newly acquired LB Bruce Irvin and CB Sean Smith.
15Tennessee TitansOTJack Conklin #Michigan State
 (from Rams) The Titans have a boatload of picks in this draft and are likely to use them to maneuver around but granted they stay at #15, they get themselves a tough Big-10 lineman who can step in and start immediately at 4 different positions across the offensive line.
16Detroit LionsDT/DESheldon RankinsLouisville
 Excellent athleticism and size with the ability to play a three-technique or five-technique, Rankins is an every down player that can terrorize runners and get after quarterbacks. His shorter size hurts him a little but his talent is undeniable and he can make an immediate impact on a struggling Lions defensive line.
17Atlanta FalconsOLBDarron Lee #Ohio State
 Darron Lee is a gifted athlete that uses his talent and natural abilities to their utmost. He excels at finding the right angle of attacks and can cover ground quickly. Also can slip into coverage and plays instinctively. Needs to get a little stronger and add some bulk, but can be an every down player.
18Indianapolis ColtsOTTaylor DeckerOhio State
 The Colts NEED offensive line help and are fortunate that Decker is still available. Now they have bookends in Decker and Costanzo protecting Andrew Luck's backside. Decker started many many games for the Buckeyes and could turn out to be a steal if he can move to LT.
19Buffalo BillsDE/34LB/OLBNoah Spence #Eastern Kentucky
 An undeniable talent, Spence made a huge impact for the Buckeyes before being kicked off the team for failed drug tests. Showed maturity and character by getting treatment for his Ectasy addiction and transfered to Eastern Kentucky where he graduated. Athletically he can play standing up or with his hand in the ground, and every team could find a use for him, but the Bills have tried to find a rusher for years and will be set by adding Spence.
20New York JetsCBVernon Hargreaves III #Florida
 I can't imagine this actually happens, but if Hargreaves actually falls to #20, the Jets should take him over a QB like Paxton Lynch. A top 10 prospect IMO, Hargreaves, Revis, and Skrine is a scary proposition to opposing QBs.
21Washington RedskinsDTA'Shawn Robinson #Alabama
 The Skins add a huge interior lineman in Robinson who can player anywhere on the 3-4 defensive front and continue to strengthen this Washington defense that made huge strides last season. A player who has all the measurables you're looking for at the next level, Robinson is similar to ex-Jags DT John Henderson.
22Houston TexansWRWill Fuller #Notre Dame
 A field-stretcher, Will Fuller has the speed to scare corners (4.32 40 yard dash) and will get ample cushions. Also can beat press coverage and always knows where the sideline is with the ability to tightrope it. Houston could go Treadwell, but Fuller will be able to run under Osweiler's deep throws and be more of a compliment to DeAndre Hopkins.
23Minnesota VikingsWRLaquon Treadwell #Ole Miss
 A 2015 Biletnikoff Award Finalist, Treadwell is a possession receiver with good hands that can give Teddy Bridgewater a much needed target and safety valve. Treadwell can run all the routes and will develop into a dynamic receiver that can lineup anywhere in the formation and be a threat.
24Cincinnati BengalsWRJosh DoctsonTCU
 A 2015 Biletnikoff Award Finalist, Doctson is a productive receiver that can high point the ball and be a good jump ball receiver for a quarterback. Adding Doctson across from A.J. Green will give the Bengals another excellent receiving threat and will help open up Eifert in the middle of the field.
25Pittsburgh SteelersCBMackensie Alexander #Clemson
 A hard-nosed competitor who was rarely thrown at, Alexander is a strong competitor who flashes shut down corner. He'll need to develop more consistency, the Steelers won't demand any less, but should be an immediate for the secondary.
26Seattle SeahawksDEKevin Dodd #Clemson
 The Seahawks take a defensive end in Dodd that finished off his college campaign better than anyone in the country. Collecting 3 sacks in the national title game and finishing with a sack in his last 5 college games, Dodd's best days are ahead of him.
27Green Bay PackersTEHunter Henry #Arkansas
 Henry is an elite tight end prospect that gives the Packers a sure-handed pass catching, full route receiving, excellent run blocking weapon. His game is already very complete, and should always be on the field this year.
28Kansas City ChiefsCBWilliam Jackson IIIHouston
 The Chiefs go corner in the 1st round 2 years in a row with another great press corner in Jackson who led the nation in PBUs (23). Jackson and Peters is a super exciting corner tandem for KC moving forward.
29New England Patriots   
 (Forfeited for Deflategate)
30Arizona CardinalsCRyan KellyAlabama
 The Cardinals get lucky and are left with the best interior lineman in the draft. Kelly didn't allow a sack or give up a penalty this past season as he was the linchpin of an offensive line that led the way for a Heisman winning running back and a national title winning team.
31Carolina PanthersOTJason SpriggsIndiana
 A four year starter, Spriggs has left side potential and could develop into a Pro-Bowler. He currently has the ability to step in on the right side and open holes for runners and the intelligence to work with the read schemes the Panthers like to execute.
32Denver BroncosQBPaxton Lynch #Memphis
 Why not end day 1 with a splash! The Broncos take a Brock Osweiler clone in Lynch who is very athletic for the position and has great potential with his size and arm talent but is nowhere near ready playing day 1. They need to to trade for a veteran QB to bridge the time before Lynch is ready to play in 2-3 years--just like Osweiler.
