Cincinnati

This is just a formality at this point, barring an idiotic trade decision by another team.

Ohio State

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

Tua would be fun but the Redskins are more likely to do the safe thing, barring a trade down.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

Trading will be tough on draft day this year, so the Lions might be forced to simply hang out and take the best option at No. 3. In this case it’s a replacement for Darius Slay.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Dave Gettleman needs a plug-and-play guy who can help him win games and protect Daniel Jones right now.

Alabama

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

This smokescreen stuff is garbage. The Dolphins want to take Tua, not Herbert.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

Adding Simmons to that defense would give them a ridiculously stout group of talent to try and slow down Patrick Mahomes and Co.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

Feels like the Panthers are probably going to go defense and just let either Brown or Simmons fall to them. They need to get better against the run and Brown helps that.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

GM Steve Keim mentioned taking a wide receiver here despite trading for DeAndre Hopkins, and I’m not sure it’s THAT crazy. Larry Fitzgerald is going to be gone and Kyler Murray needs as many weapons as he can. So let’s get nuts!

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Feels like the Jaguars are going to try and double dip on defense in this draft in order to try and be decent on a side of the ball where they’ve lost a lost of talent over the past year.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Browns need a left tackle after getting Jack Conklin in free agency and land a big boy here.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

No problem with a WR or an OL here for New York, but I’ll lean OL knowing they can get WR help early in the second round.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

Lamb is a perfect fit with the Raiders because of his catch and run ability and how he can fit in Jon Gruden’s offense.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Let’s just fill out all the rumors! Thomas Dimitroff made it clear he wants to move up, and rumor has it he wants to come up for CJ Henderson, who wouldn’t have lasted much longer. There you go, TD. The 49ers would love Henderson but would vastly prefer to move down and acquire more picks.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Tampa would love this scenario where they land a top-tier offensive lineman without trading up in the draft.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Ruggs is a perfect final (potential) puzzle piece in this Broncos offense with his deep speed serving as a nice complement to Courtland Sutton.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The All-Rumor Mock Draft! The Patriots move up from 23 to 16 to grab the Oregon quarterback, who took a surprising tumble down the draft board. I don’t think we’re going to see Bill Belichick give up a future first to move up, not with the questions about this team, but he can get seven spots up for cheaper than that. 49ers keep adding picks.

Michigan

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 307 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

42nd

POSITION RNK

6th

Plug n’ play replacement for Travis Frederick, whose departure isn’t being treated with the proper amount of concern.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 322 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

48th

POSITION RNK

8th

Getting a quarterback early means you better build around that quarterback after it — that’s what this pick is after the Dolphins used free agency to address defense.

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

4th

The perfect landing spot? Love has all the upside in the world but probably needs a year sitting and learning a system, particularly one like Jon Gruden’s. With Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota in the fold but on cheaper deals (depending on playing time and roster status), Love can sit and wait here.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

47th

POSITION RNK

8th

Hard to imagine the Jaguars not using at least one of these picks on a cornerback to replace Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

4th

Justin Jefferson to the Eagles might break the record for most times one player has been mocked to the same team in a single offseason.

TCU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

This pick could be used to replace Stefon Diggs, but I think the Vikings will double dip on defense with their picks in this first round to replace guys like Linval Joseph, who departed in free agency.

LSU

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 197 lbs

The 49ers get to move down a couple of different spots and land a player at a position of need. Don’t be surprised if they aren’t done trading.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

2nd

This is where the linebackers could start to fly off the board and it makes a ton of sense for the Saints to grab a guy with sideline-to-sideline speed like Murray.

Auburn

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

38th

POSITION RNK

7th

Mike Zimmer can never have enough corners from the early rounds on his roster.

Boise State

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 311 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

9th

Double dipping on the offensive line is a logical thing to do if you want to protect your young signal caller, especially if he’s had injuries in the past.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Seahawks always have the weirdest picks, but this one is pretty easy. Pure rusher right now, Chaisson can get better against the run but he can assist Seattle in its biggest need (pass rush) out of the gate.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 229 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Combo of need and value here for the Ravens as they get a linebacker in the fold to help secure a defense that is suddenly looking quite stout again.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 303 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

55th

POSITION RNK

5th

Versatile defensive lineman who could pair nicely with what the Titans already have on that side of the ball.

Arizona State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

6th

Feels too easy to give the Packers another weapon for Aaron Rodgers, but it makes a lot of sense. And Aiyuk gives them a great catch and run guy who can pair nicely with Davante Adams downfield threat.

Colorado

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 227 lbs

He has the tools to be that alpha X receiver that Kyle Shanahan really loves to have and he pairs nicely with Deebo Samuel.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

6th

Easy trade down spot for the Chiefs but if they stay here, grabbing another defensive back would make a lot of sense.
