2017 NFL Draft Complete

May 1, 2017 1:05 AM EST
  • Team Grades and Recaps here!
  • 2018 Consensus Mock Draft #1 available June 1
  • Drafttek correctly projects 3 QB in top-15, Jonathan Allen plunge


1 Cleveland
Myles Garrett
    Texas A&M
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
272



It has been a task finding new and creative ways to say that Myles Garrett should be selected here over the past year. It is a bit concerning to read that the team was split on this pick, but I guess when you root for the Browns, the end result is more important than the path taken. Garrett is the best player in this draft, without a doubt. He has the potential to have the kind of impact Joe Thomas has had in Cleveland, and who better to help push him to live up to that potential than Thomas. The Cleveland pass rush just got better. The Cleveland defense just got better. The Cleveland Browns just got better. Good way to start this draft off. We will see if that sentiment can last over the next three days. Lord knows the Dawg Pound needs it. Grade: A+ ~Austin Smith


2 Chicago
Mitch Trubisky
    North Carolina
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
222



This Draft has been widely considered the most unpredictible in ages, and it didn't take long for the Bears to prove the analysts right. Chicago has been linked to many a player, and each and every Quarterback during the process. While Mahomes and Watson have been considered the likely targets, the spectre of a Bears-Trubisky marriage has hovered over their pick for the past few weeks. Ryan Pace proves the whispers right by throwing the kitchen sink at the talented Tar Heel. My personal scouting report aside (let's just say I'm not thrilled with this pick), Trubisky is a talented if inexperienced player who will be a very good fit in Chicago. Trubisky is accurate with prototypical size, yet suprisingly mobile. And one thing Chicago has going for it with this pick is the presence of Mike Glennon. There will be no rush to throw Trubisky to the NFC North wolves in Game 1, allowing him development time to become the best version of himself that he can be. Cheers to Ryan Pace for being aggressive, and going after the player he wanted. As much as secondary help made sense here, this draft is deep and Chicago can pick up a Cornerback or Safety with their early Second Round Pick. Once the shock wears off, there is one thing we can all agree on as Bears fans - it's about time we tried to address the QB position. Grade: B+


3 San Francisco
Solomon Thomas
    Stanford
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
273



The 49ers won this pick before they made it. Picking up the 67th and 111th pick in this years draft is huge, and there's a 2018 third-rounder to look forward to as well. Solomon Thomas has long been linked to the 49ers and he immediately upgrades a defensive unit that finished dead last in total defense in 2016. Thomas is stout against the run, and brings versatility as a pass rusher with the potential to come off the edge or line up inside. No matter where he lines up he's an impact player and future pro-bowler. Grade: A


4 Jacksonville
Leonard Fournette
    LSU
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
235



Thankfully Jacksonville didn't attempt to outsmart themselves, and went with the consensus popular mock selection, LSU RB Leonard Fournette at #4 overall in the 2017 NFL draft. He was the marquee player available, at a marquee position, for a franchise that was on its way to becoming anonymous in the league. A choice given an A+ rating by the evaluators at NFLDraft.com. As previously mentioned, Fournette instantly changes the look of the Jags offense, and takes a ton of pressure off QB Blake Bortles, perhaps salvaging the career of the club's #3-overall pick of 2014 in the process. Almost Buddha-like in demeanor, Leonard will bring a strong, quiet confidence that will impact the team's fortunes and public perception far beyond his contributions on the field, as well. Grade: A+


5 Tennessee
Corey Davis
    W Michigan
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -9
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
209



And we thought it was shocking the Bears traded up for Trubisky?

"Hold my beer..."-Jon Robinson (probably)

Davis is a player that Tennessee was looking at, having him as one of their official visits. But consensus opinion thought the fifth pick was a bit too high, and the 18th pick was more realistic. Davis is a playmaker, dominating his entire career at Western Michigan. He fits the type of productivity that Jon Robinson looks for in college prospects, putting up four highly productive seasons, and finished 2016 as a First Team All-American. He can immediately fit into the starting lineup and will open up the passing game for Marcus Mariota. Again, it's a little shocking he went this high, but he likely wasn't going to be there at 18, so Robinson went and got "his guy." Grade: B


6 NY Jets
Jamal Adams
    LSU
    S
    Reach/Value:     +3
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
214



Draft experts, fans and even the Jets themselves didn't think Jamal Adams [Scouting Report] would be available at 6, but we here at DraftTek kept the faith. Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor failed to provide any real spark from the Safety position last year, and Todd Bowles needed to make changes. The conveyor belt of talented DBs coming out of LSU continues with Jamal Adams. Adams had 209 Tackles in a 3-year career for the Tigers. He brings versatility, leadership, and some badly-needed steel to a secondary devoid of real talent. After a dysfunctional 2016, Adams leadership qualities will also be a welcome addition for Bowles. Grade: A+


7 LA Chargers
Mike Williams
    Clemson
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
218



What more can you say about GM Tom Telesco and his ability to keep the Chargers' draft plans a complete secret? Honestly, the dude is a ninja. It's not like this pick comes out of left field. He's been on the target list since December, but the feeling all along was that the Bolts were going to focus on the defensive side of the ball here. In Mike Williams, the Bolts are getting our #1 WR prospect in the draft. He's a play maker on the outside, capable of winning match ups at every level of the field. He won't blow you away with his speed, but he's a polished prospect who can high point the ball better than any receiver in the draft. This pick might be Keenan Allen insurance in the short term, but Williams can develop into a #1 "X" receiver in time. Not many thought that the Chargers would be passing on Malik Hooker or Jonathan Allen, but they passed on both to give Philip Rivers and this offence one more weapon. Great call by Tom Telesco; the DBs will be there in RD2! Grade: A


8 Carolina
Christian McCaffrey
    Stanford
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
203



Yes! Now the Panthers have a real playmaker on offense. Someone that makes their playcalling a bit upredictable. He is who I predicted and absolutely helps evolve the Panthers' offense. He runs it up the middle and catches the ball out of the backfield. Some are skeptical of his size and durability but I think this is exactly what the team needed. I give this: Grade: A




9 Cincinnati
John Ross
    Washington
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
190



Cincinnati could have went Foster or Allen here but with WRs flying off the board a decision had to be made. Another factor is the chance Baltimore could take him forcing the Bengals to cover him the next few years. Ross is a boss, and a definite game-changer. His 4.22 in the forty-yard dash at the Combine saw him break the record. The knock on him is his injury history throughout college, but when healthy, he's a true playmaker everywhere on the field. His elite speed and agility make him very dangerous after the catch as well as in the return game. Giving AJ Green another partner to stretch the field will create more opportunities for less double and triple coverage. This makes Dalton and the Bengal offense a legitimate threat to any opposing defense and a nightmare to slow down. Grade: A-


10 Kansas City
Patrick Mahomes II
    Texas Tech
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
225



Wow! I was not surprised when the Chiefs traded up to grab a QB. But, did find it interesting that Patrick Mahomes II was chosen over Deshaun Watson. Mahomes son of the former MLB pitcher, led the nation in passing yards, hitting his targets for a combined 5052 yds in 2016. He scored 41 TDs and owned an amazing 157.0 QB rating. He was possessed in his season finale against Baylor. The Red Raider QB threw for over 580 yds and scored 6 TDs.

Mahomes does the highest ceiling of all QBs in this draft class. He is a bit polarizing, however, in that he plays a backyard style of football. Yet, every analyst has made a comparison to Brett Favre at some point. He is smart, has raw arm talent, good size, and mobility. He manipulates defenders well and makes throws no other can match.

Do not expect him to see much action in 2017; he will play understudy to Alex Smith, who has struggled to connect on intermediate or deep passes throughout his career. In 2018, Smith is due $20.6M if he remains the Chiefs' starter. Hoorah! We can stop talking about Todd Blackledge and the 1983 draft!!! ~KCBudMan, Chiefs Analyst Grade: A-


11 New Orleans
Marshon Lattimore
    Ohio St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
193



With the amazing way the first 10 picks falling the way they did, the New Orleans Saints find themselves with a bevy of defensive talent to choose from at #11. With a secondary that has finished next to last vs the pass in 2015 and dead-last a year ago, Marshon Lattimore provides New Orleans with a top talent at CB. Grade: A


12 Houston
Deshaun Watson
    Clemson
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -14
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
210



I love it; Deshaun Watson is perfect for H-Town! Cleveland owns Houston's 1st and 2nd RD picks next year, but thank you Browns for helping get us out of a QB conundrum, twice. The Texans are in win now mode and Deshaun certainly knows how to in. Watson led his team to back-to-back National Championship games, winning one in grand fashion, while being awarded the Davey O'Brien award as the nation's best QB two years in a row. Nothing against Savage, I hope he explodes this year and replenishes some of our draft assets, but Watson is a championship caliber QB. The Texans are getting one of the best overall players in the draft. Watson's back-to-back 4,000 yd, 35+ TD seasons are better than many of the QBs drafted over the past 10 years. I'm excited to watch O'Brien transition that production into his scheme. A QB prospect like Watson could ensure prolonged success. Grade: A ~CME, Texans Analyst


13 Arizona
Haason Reddick
    Temple
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
237



After watching the Chiefs trade up for Patrick Mahomes and the Texans move up to grab DeShaun Watson, the Cardinals ultimately ended up with Temple ILB Haason Reddick. Reddick is a versatile playmaker that excelled as an edge rusher, racking up 22.5 TFL and 9.5 sacks in 2016. Reddick followed up with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl and the Combine. His athletic measurables include a 4.52 forty-yard dash, 36.5" vertical, and 24 reps on the bench. Reddick most likely projects to an off-ball role at the next level, but he has the range and cover skills to project as a three-down ILB. As a former walk-on at defensive back, Reddick is full of twitch and playmaking ability. Reddick's work ethic and versatility should make him a fixture through the middle of the Cardinals' defense for years to come. Grade: A+


14 Philadelphia
Derek Barnett
    Tennessee
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
259



I'd like to take this moment to point out to Eagles' fans how well this team strategized these last two drafts. Carson Wentz would have been the hands-down #1 QB in this year's draft, and the Eagles had the foresight to make their "QB-move" last year, and build their roster with position players this year (imagine yourself a Browns' fan right now). After watching teams scramble and reach for guys that would have been the #3 QB at best last year end up going in the first 12 picks this year, it's obvious that the Eagles played this perfectly. When you take a step back, it's hard to believe Freaking Sam Bradford (Freaking = not a compliment here) netted us a choice between Reuben Foster, Jonathan Allen, and Derek Barnett. In the end, the Eagles chose the guy with zero red flags in the character OR medical department, and with TONS of checkered flags in the production department. ~Broz, Eagles Analyst


15 Indianapolis
Malik Hooker
    Ohio St
    S
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
205



The best pure cover safety of the 2017 class, the bizarre offensive blitz by teams picking in the first 14 slots allow the Colts to get exceptional value on the defensive side of the ball. Marshon Lattimore is extremely dangerous and a solid playmaker, which GM Chris Ballard had as a top priority. Hooker is a bit risky and still a bit raw, but the ceiling is high for him long-term. Many Colts' fans will wonder if they should have gone wtih Reuben Foster, but the former Buckeye gives Indy top value at the pick. Grade: A


16 Baltimore
Marlon Humphrey
    Alabama
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -23
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
197



When Baltimore signed Brandon Carr this offseason, our conviction that the Ravens would look heavily to address last season's prime weakness, cornerback, wavered. However, Ozzie saw a top 10 talent from his old school available and jumped at the opportunity to turn the position group into a potential strength. Jimmy Smith, Carr, Tavon Young, and Humphrey should have the ability to cover almost anyone, and the Tide product adds a physical and athletic presence that could make him a perennial Pro Bowler. Overall, I like Humphrey more than our Big Board #39 ranking would suggest, but I do think there were other quality players at positions of need (see Allen, Jonathan) that deny this selection a higher rating. Grade: B+
