22. Dolphins Kevin King CB Washington

King is a long, athletic, and versatile CB with a great 6’3″ frame.  King fits a weak CB group in Miami that will play alongside of Byron Maxwell and Xavien Howard.  King made some outstanding plays at Washington and could evolve into a shutdown corner.

23. Giants David Njoku TE Miami (FL)

The Giants are ready for a run at the NFC Title Game with their superb last two Free Agency periods.  Njoku poses yet another threat in an offense with Paul Perkins, Brandon Marshall, Odell Beckham, and Sterling Shepard.

24. Raiders Jarrad Davis LB Florida  

Jarrad Davis is a run-stuffing LB who has that grit to him that is a perfect fit in a raiders uniform.  The Raiders continue to build up their roster to compete with powerhouses in Pittsburgh and New England.

25. Texans Ryan Ramczyk OT Wisconsin

Ramczyk is another mauler on the offensive line that can be a great pass-blocker in the NFL.  Most mock drafts have Texans reaching for a QB like Kizer or Webb, but the Texans should let Tom Savage try to prove himself this year and wait until next season to find their franchise QB.

26. Seahawks Forrest Lamp OG/OT Western Kentucky

I would like to start off by saying that Forrest Lamp is an appreciable name and I hope he has an outstanding career.  Anyway the Seahawks are lucky enough to not have many holes on their roster.  So doing what the good teams do, it is likely that SEA will take the best lineman available here on either side of the ball.

27. Chiefs Takkarist McKinley DE/OLB UCLA

The Chiefs are another team just on the cusp of a Super Bowl appearance and are in need of a few more versatile players on both sides of the ball.  The Chiefs love to attack the QB in their 3-4 defense and McKinley is a guy that can play down as a DE and can cover as an OLB.

28. Cowboys Marlon Humphrey CB Alabama

The Cowboys need a physical CB to pair with Sean Lee and the rest of their old-school defense.  Humphrey is a CB that is not afraid to come up and hit people but he also can cover opposing team’s number one receiver.  With a division filled with Pryor, Jeffery, Marshall, and Beckham, the Cowboys are in need of a starting CB.

29. Packers Malik McDowell DT Michigan State

McDowell is a gap-filler who can play in both a 4-3 or a 3-4.  McDowell was discussed as a possible top-20 pick but the need of a pass rusher is more important in today’s NFL.  McDowell is a great fit for the Packers who pick BPA at pick 29.

30. Steelers Obi Melifonwu S Connecticut

The Steelers most immediate need is to bolster their secondary for the 2017 season.  The Steelers get a S that had an incredible combine.  Melifonwu has the ball-skills to start right away in the dominant Steelers defense.

31. Falcons Charles Harris DE Missouri 

Charles Harris is another player that deserves a better draft spot than the one I am giving him at pick 31.  Harris has an insane first step off the ball and makes tons of plays as a pass rusher.

32. Saints Tre’Davious White CB LSU

 

White is a fantastic CB who has great acceleration and recovery speed at the position.  The Saints need all the help they can get on defense and close out the 1st round with two playmakers on that side of the ball in Derek Barnett and Tre’ White.
