Son Adam's 2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0


1. Cleveland Browns - Solomon Thomas* |DT| Stanford:

A dominating bowl game then declaring for the draft has seemingly catapulted Thomas’ draft stock. But he’s been a dominant force all season for Stanford. He’s a tad longer and leaner than Aaron Donald but their play style is very similar.

NFL Comp. Aaron Donald Lite

2. San Francisco 49ers - Myles Garrett* |OLB| Texas A&M:

He’s been the consensus #1 prospect since the start of the season. Highly productive, rumored freakish athletic ability, and a high character guy. What I think is lacking is a consistent motor, and physicality at the line of scrimmage. He plays like a smaller stand up OLB despite being near 6’5 270.

NFL Comp. Chris Clemons

3. Chicago Bears - Jamal Adams |S| LSU:

Former CB retains the speed but brings the physicality. Supreme leader and motivator.

NFL Comp. taller Earl Thomas

4. Jacksonville Jaguars - Malik Hooker**|S| OSU:

Elite athlete and ball skills for the position but also a one year wonder.

NFL Comp. Devon McCourty

5. Tennessee Titans - Jonathan Allen |DE| Alabama:

DE in a DT body. Big time motor and a savage at the point of attack.

NFL Comp. Jurrell Casey

6. New York Jets - Len Fournette*|RB| LSU:

Unique size and speed but just adequate patience and vision. Atm he’s just a physical battering ram.

NFL Comp. Ricky Williams

7. Los Angeles Chargers - Derek Barnett |DE/OLB| Tennessee:

Massive motor and top tier initial quickness in a squatty body.

NFL Comp. Brandon Graham

8. Carolina Panthers - Jabrill Peppers*|S| Michigan:

Polarizing guy has elite speed and got better over his college career despite playing 4+ positions.

NFL Comp. Malcolm Jenkins

9. Cincinnati Bengals - Malik McDowell*|DT| Michigan St:

Boom bust candidate has a unique physical skill set but never reached his potential at MSU.

NFL Comp. Malik Jackson

10. Buffalo Bills - Mike Williams*|WR| Clemson:

Not a blazer but has size, hands, and quick feet.

NFL Comp. Amani Toomer

11. New Orleans Saints - Teez Tabor*|CB| Florida:

Clicks and closes at an elite level and has great ball skills. But he’s not a fan of tackling or coming off blocks.

NFL Comp. Asante Samuel

12. Cleveland Browns - Garett Bolles |OT| Utah:

Best OT in this class, imo. Pass protects well but shines as a run blocker. However, he’s got just adequate size and is a little older than the average prospect.

NFL Comp. Jordan Gross

13. Arizona Cardinals - O.J. Howard |TE| Alabama:

Exactly how you draw up a pro TE but disappeared for long stretches at Bama’.

NFL Comp. skinny Marcedes Lewis

14. Indianapolis Colts - Christian McCaffrey*|RB| Stanford:

Tremendous running and receiving talent but he’s slight and a bit underpowered.

NFL Comp. Marshall Faulk

15. Philadelphia Eagles - Dalvin Cook* |RB| Florida St:

Pure speed plus durability, balance, hands make him special despite being on the smaller size. Past character concerns might creep up though.

NFL Comp. Lamar Miller

16. Baltimore Ravens - Tanoh Kpassangnon |DE| Villanova:

Monster small schooler is smart, ripped and one of the best pieces of clay in this class.

NFL Comp. raw Calais Campbell

17. Washington Redskins - Jaleel Johnson |DT| Iowa:

Best NT in this class.

NFL Comp. Kawaan Short

18. Tennessee Titans - Corey Davis |WR| W. Michigan:

2016 All American is atop many WR boards. But I’m not sure just how explosive he actually is.

NFL Comp. Allen Hurns

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Forrest Lamp |OT| W. Kentucky:

Steady, powerful guy with good feet. Held his own at LT against the strength of Jon Allen and the speed of Arden Key over the past 2 seasons.

NFL Comp. Justin Pugh

20. Denver Broncos - Cam Robinson*|OT| Alabama:

More of a RT imo or even a OG but he looks capable of playing both sides. So so pass protector but moves people around in the running game.

NFL Comp. King Dunlap

21. Detroit Lions - Reuben Foster |LB| Alabama:

Devastating hitter and has shown he can cover. Dropped weight this past season and became extra explosive. But it’s hard to get a good read on a guy playing behind the most dominant DL in the country.

NFL Comp. Kevin Burnett

22. Miami Dolphins - Charles Harris* |DE| Missouri:

Harris has a big time motor and is aggressive and quick at the poa. But he’s a little stiff and undersized.

NFL Comp. top heavy John Abraham

23. New York Giants - Mitch Trubisky* |QB| UNC:

Barring a meteoric rise due to combine/private workouts, I think teams will be appropriately cautious with Trubisky...and really all the QBs. Becoming Eli’s eventual successor makes a ton of sense for both sides.

NFL Comp. between a stronger armed Andy Dalton & Mark Sanchez

24. Las Vegas Raiders - Sidney Jones |CB| Washington:

Imo the best CB in this class. On the skinny side but will hit.

NFL Comp. Darius Slay

25. Houston Texans - David Njoku*|TE| Miami:

Inexperienced phenom athlete that can also block.

NFL Comp. Vernon Davis

26. Seattle Seahawks - Ryan Ramcyzk*|OT| Wisconsin:

RR was a good blocker for the Badgers, especially in the run game. But he may not have the feet to stick at OT.

NFL Comp. David Diehl

28. Kansas City Chiefs - Zach Cunningham*|LB| Vanderbilt:

Cunningham closes aggressively to the ball carrier all over the field. Not as adept in coverage.

NFL Comp. Daryl Washington

28. Dallas Cowboys - Takkarist McKinley |DE| UCLA:

Strong motor with good athletic ability put some things together as a senior.

NFL Comp. Jabaal Sheard

29. Green Bay Packers - Dan Feeney |OG| Indiana:

I've been luke warm on Feeney but he man handled some good players senior week. A plug and play type for the interior.

NFL Comp Matt Slauson

30. Pittsburgh Steelers - Haason Reddick |LB| Temple:

Good athlete with closing burst and fluidity as a pass rusher and has a lot of experience playing in space and in coverage. Prototype 34 OLB but versatile enough to play in a 43 scheme. A movable chess piece.

NFL Comp. 6’1 Anthony Barr

31. Atlanta Falcons - Gareon Conley*|CB| OSU:

Conley might be a top ten guy in most drafts. He has to back up what he’s put on tape with good athletic testing, however.

NFL Comp. Stephon Gilmore

32. New England - Evan Engram*|TE| Mississippi:

Engram is really a big WR that’s not afraid to block.

NFL Comp. Dustin Keller


33. Cleveland Browns - Patrick Mahomes* |QB| Texas Tech:

NFL Comp. an air raid Matt Stafford

34. San Francisco 49ers - Deshone Kizer**|QB| Notre Dame:
