2017 NFL Live Mock Draft Round 1
Selections 17-32

Adaptive Live Mock Draft Day 2 | April 28, 2017 12:05 PM EST
Notes: A red cell represent an actual pick | A red cell with a star represents a correct Drafttek prognostication

17 Washington
Jonathan Allen
    Alabama
    DL3T
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
286



JONATHAN EFFING ALLEN!!!!! WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!?! Jonathan Allen was that best-case-scenario-but-will-never-happen pick for the Redskins. In fact, he was that pick that people laughed at in mock drafts. But wait...it just happened!! The Redskins get the second best player in the draft at number 17! I am almost always someone who is tough on Redskins' draft picks, but this is an A+ pick if I've ever seen one. Jonathan Allen is a low-floor, high-ceiling player; a high-character player that will upgrade the Redskins' front-seven instantly. This is easily the best pick of the First Round thus far. WOOOOOOT! A++ @Kennedy_Paynter on Twitter


18 Tennessee
Adoree Jackson
    USC
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -27
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
186



Maybe Robinson wasn't so crazy after all. Considering the offensive run that happened, Robinson made the right call taking Wide Receiver early and waiting on the secondary. Marshon Lattimore and Marlon Humphrey didn't last, but Adoree' Jackson is a great pickup! He was a defensive playmaker , deflecting 28 passes during his career and picking off six passes (five in 2016). Like Davis, Jackson was a First Team All-American this past season, and won the Thorpe Award for best Defensive Back in the country. Production? Check. Postseason recognition? Check. Sounds like a Jon Robinson pick. As a bonus, Jackson adds a whole new dimension to the return game on special teams. He's a special athlete. Tennessee lands a incredibly dynamic player here. Grade: A


19 Tampa Bay
O.J. Howard
    Alabama
    TE
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
255



OJ Howard is a once-in-a-decade player who would be a great over-the-middle option. He also comes with valuable downfield-blocking experience, never a bad idea. Read what our own Austin Smith said about Howard, right here. The best TE option, often listed in the Top Ten, available here is a steal. Grade: A+


20 Denver
Garett Bolles
    Utah
    OT
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
296



Well it wasn't a secret that Denver wanted to draft a left tackle. No one has more potential to have success at that position than Bolles. His athleticism is off the charts. He has a nasty streak. He may be a bit raw with his technique but I wasn't sold that any tackle in this draft was going to be ready to walk on the field day one and play left tackle at a high level. I was a little shocked that Reuben Foster didn't tempt them into changing their minds, or even Allen who they could have moved up to select. At the end of the day, the rebuilding process for the Broncos' offensive line is over. Grade: A- ~Austin Smith


21 Detroit
Jarrad Davis
    Florida
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -27
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
238



The Lions find the leader of the defense early in this draft. After DeAndre Levy was released, the Lions knew they had to find someone who could step in and bring a vigor to the defense that's lost its way. Some will claim the importance of a pass-rusher early on but, in a draft this deep, the Lions will have opportunities. Davis was a late riser through the draft all thanks to Florida Gators' Pro Day. Davis's energy and love for the game is infectious and a pleasure to watch. He'll bring a professional attitude that Caldwell and Austin will utilize to spark their defense. Most importantly, Davis becomes the de facto leader of this very talented Lions' defense. Grade: A-


22 Miami
Charles Harris
    Missouri
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -9
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
253



A prospect who had some late helium as a player many expected would be a hot commodity in the late-1st round, Charles Harris didn't last too long as Miami plucks him off the board. The Mizzou EDGE train continues, as Harris is the latest Tiger pass rusher to hear his name called early in the NFL Draft. As our own Austin Smith noted, his spin move is his calling card at this point, but he'll likely need to expand the repertoire if he wants to have consistent success as a professional. The bottom line for the 'Phins is that they needed a pass rusher opposite of Cameron Wake, and they got their man in Charles Harris. Watch for a linebacker and offensive lineman on Day 2. Grade: B+


23 NY Giants
Evan Engram
    Ole Miss
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
234



I imagine many Giants' fans were dreaming of O.J. Howard as the draft took its course Thursday night and the number one Tight End continued to slide. While that did not come to fruition with Tampa Bay reeling him in, the Giants landed a super athletic TE in Evan Engram out of Ole Miss. Engram provides opposing teams match-up nightmares when considering the WR targets Eli Manning already has at his disposal. A four-year starter at tight end, Engram lined up all over the formation at Ole Miss, spending most of his time as a hybrid pass-catcher. He leaves Eli's alma mater as the most accomplished tight end in school history. Somewhere, Eli Manning is happily celebrating this pick as the Giants add an athletic modern weapon to his offense that struggled to score points in 2016. Simply put, the Giants needed to get better at at the tight end position. They have already improved their blocking at the position through free agency with the addition of Rhett Ellison. Evan Engram provides a wealth of options for Coach McAdoo and also brings high work ethic and high football IQ to the Giants. This is a solid pick for the New York Giants. Grade: B


24 Oakland
Gareon Conley
    Ohio St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
195



Ummm... that was a surprise. With most thinking Conley might drop out of the first round due to rape accusations, Reggie McKenzie is rolling the dice on prospect many had going in the 10-15 range before the allegation surfaced. There seems to be tremendous confidence that the former Buckeye is innocent, and, if so, Oakland got somewhat of a steal. He is a dynamic corner who has Pro Bowl potential and instantly alleviates concerns about a defensive backfield that was one of the league's worst in 2016. He's certainly an upgrade over D.J. Hayden, and he could push David Amerson and Sean Smith early on. That said, the accusations do provide a level of uncertainty, and, to me, it's a big mistake to pass up a need/talent fit like Reuben Foster who unexpectedly was sitting there at #24. Grade: B+





25 Cleveland
Jabrill Peppers
    Michigan
    S
    Reach/Value:     +14
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
213



Lot of risk and reward with this pick. Peppers is one of the best athletes in this draft and his versatility can't be denied. I have long been saying that they need to take the most talented players with every pick because the Browns are the least-talented team in the league. Well, this pick falls in line with that stance. They are going to have to coach the Ohio native, and be patient with him growing into that Strong Safety role. He can also be a dynamic presence on special teams. Look forward to seeing if this pick pays off. Grade: Incomplete ~Austin Smith


26 Atlanta
Takkarist McKinley
    UCLA
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
258



Takk McKinley is a remarkable athlete with a tremendous motor. He is already a very capable run defender who needs to improve his pass rushing moves. Providing he can get past offseason shoulder surgery, he should have some fine coaching to work with in Coach Quinn. McKinley was probably as good an Edge player that Atlanta could have reasonably hoped for at the end of the first round, but they did pay a steep price to move up and grab him. This is a draft with good players in the 3rd round. McKinley's talent, effort, and heart are unquestioned. Now he will need to be coached into a pass-rushing terror by the Atlanta staff. McKinley played for Jeff Ulbrich at UCLA, so they know what they are getting. Player A+, Trade B.


27 Buffalo
Tre'Davious White
    LSU
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
192



Trading down to 27 and getting MCDermott a prototypical-sized CB of this quallity? We'll call it a great start, especially with all the draft capital acquired in the process. Bills fans will love them some Tre'davious White because he can, you know, cover people. A four-year, versatile, press-cover starter with 47 games of experience in the NFL's junior varsity league (the SEC), the All-American is about as battle-tested as a rookie can be. With all the injury concerns surrounding so many prospects this year, White (who wore the vaunted LSU #18) has only missed one game in his entire four-year career. Totaling 14 pass breakups in 2016, 6 career INTs, and 3 punt returns for TDs, White would fill a couple of needs. Grade: A-


28 Dallas
Taco Charlton
    Michigan
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +3
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
277



Despite questionable personnel decisions in the past, no one has ever caught Cuzzin Jerruh in a marketing gaffe . . . " until today!" Yep, true believers, the menu at Jerryworld will have to be updated with the selection of Taco (you really don't think CJ will let an "appetizing" opportunity like this slip through his fingers?). It's amazing Vidauntae "Taco" Charlton was even available for Dallas at #28, having caught the eye of "Mr. Hair".

Taco played mostly on special teams as a true Freshman (2 tackles), but as a Sophomore produced 19 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and 3.5 sacks in 1 start. Although Charlton started just 3 games as a Junior, he contributed 30 tackles, 8.5 for loss, and 5.5 sacks on passing downs. His Senior season produced 1st Team All-Big Ten honors after leading Michigan with 9.5 sacks among his 13 tackles for loss. As you can see from these 2016 highlights, #33 exhibits instant reaction time off snap and up the field, thanks to an explosion factor of 67.7 and an agility factor of 0.53, recorded at the NFL Combine.

The questions surrounding Taco center around lack of consistency . . . and what better coach to get production out of him every play than DC Rod Marinelli ? Pass rush has to be the 1st priority in improving the Cowboys' pass defense, as I never remember a QB completing a pass when he's on the ground!


29 Cleveland
David Njoku
    Miami (FL)
    TE
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
246



I was surprised to see our Browns move back up but in the end, we get a tight end in Round One. While I thought O.J. Howard would be the pick at 12, Njoku was expected to be long-gone by 29. This offense needs weapons, and Njoku has the potential to be a good one. The talent is there at 20 years old, but he has a lot of room to grow as a player. With the Browns' first three picks, "potential" has been the key word. The coaching staff better put their hard hats on and get ready to teach these kids, because another key word tends to shadow "potential", and that is "bust". Grade: Incomplete ~Austin Smith


30 Pittsburgh
T.J. Watt
    Wisconsin
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
243



With James Harrison on his farewell tour, the Steelers have a season to bring his replacement along. Similar to Artie Burns last year, Watt is an elite athlete with upside as a football player, as evidenced by his outstanding 37" vert, 4.13 sec short shuttle, and 6.79 sec 3-cone at the Combine. Despite only playing defense a couple years, he was an impact player last year for the Badgers, with 63 tackles and 11.5 sacks. Here's an excellent scouting profile. Grade A+


31 San Francisco
Reuben Foster
    Alabama
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     +16
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
229



What a night for new GM John Lynch! After adding three extra draft picks and landing Solomon Thomas with the third pick, Lynch makes a low-cost trade to get back into the first to take a player whose on-field talent is top 5. Reuben Foster is another immediate-impact player who will take aim at improving that league-worst defense from 2016. Foster is an instinctive playmaker on the defensive side of the ball who fits as a MIKE or WILL linebacker in San Francisco's new defensive scheme. Grade: A


32 New Orleans
Ryan Ramczyk
    Wisconsin
    OT
    Reach/Value:     +13
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
310



New Orleans concludes the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft by making a selection from the offensive side of the ball. Utilizing the pick acquired from their trade of WR Brandin Cooks with the New England Patriots, the Saints add an Offensive Tackle with the Badger of Wisconsin,Ryan Ramczyk. Despite having hip surgery following his final collegiate season, Ramczyk is a Tackle that gives up very little opportunity to pressure his QB. The Saints will need him to quickly step up and begin to fill in for 34-year old Zach Strief, a 2006 draft selection for New Orleans. Grade: A

Traded Round 1 Picks:
Tennessee gets Los Angeles R1 Pick (2016 Draft trade)
Cleveland gets Philadelphia R1 Pick (2016 Draft trade)
New Orleans gets New England R1 pick (Brandin Cooks deal)
