2017 NFL Mock Draft: Matt Miller's Midseason Projections

    Where will the top college players line up next fall? This three-round mock draft—using the most recent draft order adjusted for playoff seeding—answers that question by looking at team needs, potential losses and additions in free agency and the current value of the top redshirt sophomores, juniors and seniors in college football. 

    For months we've heard about Deshaun Watson, Leonard Fournette and Myles Garrett. Now we're even closer to finding out where they'll play next season. We're also learning new names. Mitch Trubisky is one of them—and the red-hot North Carolina quarterback may spoil a lot of plans from the perceived top quarterbacks in April.

    With a strong draft ahead of us at running back, tight end, defensive end, cornerback and safety, we'll see heavy debate about who the best players are and where the next franchise quarterback will come from. It may be Watson or Trubisky at the top, or could it be someone else?

1. Cleveland Browns

    The Pick: QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame

    The Cleveland Browns are 0-8 but with several building blocks on both sides of the ball (Terrelle Pryor and Jamie Collins to name a few) if they can be aggressive and keep them both in free agency. With the first pick in the draft, the regime can add a premier college player to an improving roster.

    There will be pressure at the top of the draft to add a quarterback, and the only passer currently projected to be considered for the pick is DeShone Kizer of Notre Dame. Kizer isn't a perfect prospect by any means, but his upside is the best of the crop given his arm strength and athleticism.

    If Kizer could work under Hue Jackson, it would be a dream for both while giving the Browns the franchise quarterback they are currently lacking.

2. San Francisco 49ers

    The Pick: DE Myles Garrett, Texas A&M

    The best player in the 2017 draft class goes No. 2 overall, and the San Francisco 49ers couldn't be happier.

    Myles Garrett might not be a traditional fit in the 49ers' 3-4 defense, but he's the type of player you bend a defense for. Garrett can play standing up in an outside linebacker role, put his hand in the dirt outside the tackle as a 4-3 defensive end or even bump down to a 3-technique to beat up offensive guards. His versatility, power and agility make him as close to a can't-miss prospect as this class offers.

    The 49ers could use a quarterback, but going after Watson here over the more proven Garrett would be a risk Trent Baalke's front office can't take.

3. Chicago Bears

3 of 34

    Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: QB Deshaun Watson, Clemson

    The Chicago Bears are reportedly bringing in an outside consultant to inspect the football operations, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport—not exactly a good sign for general manager Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox.

    To keep their jobs safe after a rocky start to 2016, the Bears regime must focus on getting younger and better at quarterback after struggling with Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer with no clear succession plan in place.

    Watson hasn't been as electric in 2016 compared to his finale against Alabama last season, but he's still a dangerous quarterback with a high upside. Given his legs and arm, Watson would be the kind of quarterback to step in and make plays for an offense that lacks an energetic presence under center.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars

4 of 34

    Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: S Jabrill Peppers, Michigan

    General manager Dave Caldwell would be a surprise fire after the 2016 season, but head coach Gus Bradley may be out of a job due to his inability to develop the early draft picks the Jaguars have added. With another top-five pick in 2017, Caldwell can hand his new head coach a playmaking safety who can handle the middle of the field while Jalen Ramsey takes away the edge as the No. 1 cornerback.

    Jabrill Peppers can play cornerback, linebacker, safety, returner and even running back. That might sound a little like last year's second-rounder Myles Jack, but Peppers comes into the league healthy and with more of a background as a turnover machine in the Michigan defense.

    For Jacksonville, Peppers could be a matchup nightmare in the secondary when matched against running backs, tight ends or even slot receivers. He's not quite the short-area athlete Tyrann Mathieu is, but their usage could be the same.

5. Carolina Panthers

5 of 34

    Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: DL Jonathan Allen, Alabama

    The Carolina Panthers already have Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei and Vernon Butler—so why would Dave Gettleman pick another defensive lineman in the first round?

    A few reasons. Short is a free agent. Lotulelei and Butler are set on the inside, but Allen has the athleticism to play anywhere along the defensive line. With Charles Johnson also set to hit free agency, Allen's ability to play defensive end or defensive tackle makes him of value to a Panthers team that is seemingly determined to stay young (and cheap) outside of the quarterback and middle linebacker spots.

    Allen isn't the biggest need, but in a draft class short on offensive tackle talent, he is the best player available and enough of a need to be a fit.

6. New York Jets

6 of 34

    Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images

    The Pick: RB Leonard Fournette, LSU

    The New York Jets have subscribed to a "best player available" philosophy in Mike Maccagnan's run as general manager, and that's why they would select running back Leonard Fournette with the No. 6 overall pick.

    Fournette isn't the biggest need for a team that must get younger at cornerback and edge-rusher and find a quarterback of the future, but he is undoubtedly the best player on the board after Garrett. Fournette is a fit and gives the Jets a future in the backfield. With a generational talent on the board, it should be an easy decision for Maccagnan and his staff as to who the pick will be.

7. Indianapolis Colts

7 of 34

    Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: Edge-rusher Derek Barnett, Tennessee

    The first true need pick in the draft, the Indianapolis Colts reach slightly to get the edge-rusher so desperately needed in the 3-4 scheme.

    Derek Barnett has had a tremendous season, notching nine sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss and even one interception. At 6'3", 265 pounds, he has the power and athleticism to play as a 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker. Barnett has already shown the bend and motor to handle offensive tackles from various alignments, making him an even more attractive prospect for Indy.

    Without a great offensive tackle in this class, the only other option for the Colts would be a cornerback such as Quincy Wilson or a playmaking safety in Jamal Adams.

8. San Diego Chargers

8 of 34

    Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: DL Malik McDowell, Michigan State

    While I'm not completely sold on Malik McDowell as a top-10 player in this draft class, many of my peers in the draft industry and several of the scouts I talk to regularly like him as an elite prospect.

    Beauty is in the eye of the evaluator to some degree, and McDowell has a great frame and natural athleticism, but he too often disappears on tape for my liking. That said, there have been many gifted athletes with correctable issues on tape going in the top 10 lately—and many have panned out. McDowell might be next.

    In San Diego, McDowell is a natural fit as a 5-technique defensive end and part-time 3-technique pass-rusher in sub defense situations. If he can run his motor at a higher RPM than I've seen on some tape, he has the tools to become a Calais Campbell-type player.

    It may sound like I'm really down on this pick, but I promise that's not the case. McDowell's ceiling is incredibly high, but his floor is low. That's the case for many top-10 picks, especially defensive linemen. The reward could be huge.

9. Miami Dolphins

9 of 34

    Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: CB Quincy Wilson, Florida

    The top-ranked cornerback in college football, Quincy Wilson is a special talent. On the year, Wilson has yet to allow more than 35 yards receiving in a game (per Pro Football Focus) and only gave up his first touchdown of the year because he got tripped up with a teammate.

    Wilson is a better prospect than last year's Florida Gators cornerback Vernon Hargreaves due to his superior size (6'1", 200 lbs). He's also a better prospect than his more hyped teammate Teez Tabor due to cleaner technique and better instincts.

    The Miami Dolphins got younger with Xavien Howard in the second round of last year's draft but still need an upgrade at the position. Wilson gives them that upgrade while also representing a potential top-tier NFL cornerback in the making.

10. Tennessee Titans (from Los Angeles)

10 of 34

    Don Juan Moore/Getty Images

    The Pick: WR Mike Williams, Clemson

    The Tennessee Titans shipped off wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham to Philadelphia, leaving the roster stocked with future free agent Kendall Wright and fifth-rounder Tajae Sharpe. An upgrade at wide receiver has to be a priority with one of the team's two first-round selections.

    The only issue is this wide receiver class doesn't look very good. The lone slam dunk in Round 1 is Clemson's Mike Williams. He's sure to be highly sought-after given the lack of talent around him at the position.

    Williams has size and speed and is a complete route-runner coming out of a receiver factory at Clemson. He has the range to attack deep balls but is slippery enough to mix up cornerbacks on underneath and crossing routes.

    Giving Marcus Mariota a dynamic receiver like Williams to grow with makes a ton of sense—and it also allows the Titans to be smart in spending, as the team won't be forced to re-sign Wright.

11. Baltimore Ravens

11 of 34

    Wesley Hitt/Getty Images

    The Pick: Edge-rusher Tim Williams, Alabama

    Tim Williams is still a work in progress as an every-down player, but Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome loves Alabama players, and in the dynamic pass-rusher he gets an answer to a huge need on the depth chart.

    Williams thrives as a third-down rusher at Alabama, showing off speed and bend that few in college can compete with. The key for his long-term success in the NFL is developing into more of a complete player—especially against the run. Right now his focus for the Crimson Tide is getting into backfields and making plays, which is exactly what the Ravens lack on defense.

12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

12 of 34

    Sean Gardner/Getty Images

    The Pick: S Jamal Adams, LSU

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are remaking the secondary after trading Johnthan Banks to the Detroit Lions and using a first-rounder on cornerback Hargreaves in last year's draft. Now the goal is to finish that job. Using a 2017 first-round pick on punishing safety Jamal Adams will go a long way in adding an aggressive playmaker on defense.

    Adams is the hardest hitter in college football and is a natural fit as a strong safety at the next level. He can play in the box but is also rangy enough to get deep and make plays on the passing game. You'll see him lock up tight ends and running backs in the LSU scheme, and that same level of coverage skills will come with him to Tampa, where he can be a young building block for an evolving defense.

13. New Orleans Saints

13 of 34

    Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: LB Reuben Foster, Alabama

    One of the best players in this year's draft, Reuben Foster slips through the cracks due to some positional needs on the teams that draft ahead of New Orleans. The Saints will gladly take this year's top linebacker and plug him into the middle of the defense for the next eight years.

    This move may confuse some since the Saints drafted Stephone Anthony in the first round two seasons ago, but Anthony is riding the bench now and is looking more like a bad pick every week. Foster, unlike Anthony, is a plug-and-play middle linebacker with the instincts, range and explosive ability to take over the game from the middle of the field.

14. Arizona Cardinals

14 of 34

    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    The Pick: QB Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina

    The Arizona Cardinals are struggling on offense right now, and many of the core pieces of the team are aging. With an eye toward the years to come, general manager Steve Keim finally grabs a viable quarterback of the future in Trubisky.

    Some fans may want an offensive tackle here, but reaching for an average tackle in Round 1 is a colossal mistake. It's better to stay true to the value of the board and draft a future need than reach for a player who isn't worthy of the draft spot. Trubisky at No. 14 is a great value—even a bit of a steal—and gives Bruce Arians' offense a succession plan for life after Carson Palmer.

    Trubisky is just a one-year starter at North Carolina, but his accuracy and arm strength are a deadly combination. Throw in some good athleticism, and he's an ideal fit in Arizona.

15. Cincinnati Bengals

15 of 34

    Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: CB Gareon Conley, Ohio State

    In the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected cornerback Darqueze Dennard from Michigan State. Since then, Dennard has started two games, made one interception and for the most part stayed in the doghouse. For this reason, cornerback is still a need in Cincinnati.

    Gareon Conley is one of three highly touted Ohio State defensive backs expected to be in the 2017 draft class. As a 6'0", 195-pound junior, Conley is emerging as a blanket coverage man with the ball skills to flip the field and create opportunities on defense. He's unlike any cornerback the Bengals have now, with a game more reminiscent of Joe Haden than Dre Kirkpatrick or Dennard, who are more physical than graceful.

16. Buffalo Bills

16 of 34

    Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: FS Malik Hooker, Ohio State

    It's hard to pinpoint one area for the Buffalo Bills to attack in the first round of the 2017 draft, which makes this selection more of a value pick that does fill a need. There were other areas of consideration—wide receiver, offensive tackle, pass-rusher—but Malik Hooker's value at pick No. 16 and the impact he would bring as a plug-and-play free safety makes him the pick.

    Rex Ryan may not be the most loved coach in the NFL, but his teams play hard-nosed football, and his defenses consistently make plays. With Ed Reed as an assistant defensive backs coach, Hooker's ability to find the ball and show off his range in attacking all corners of the field would make him an exciting addition to a defense that must keep adding young talent.

17. Tennessee Titans

17 of 34

    Rob Foldy/Getty Images

    The Pick: CB Teez Tabor, Florida

    With the second of the team's two first-round picks, the Titans go after the outside of the defense and grab a stud cornerback in Teez Tabor.

    Tabor entered the season as the more hyped of the two Florida cornerbacks, and his play has been top-notch throughout the year. Tabor did slip behind teammate Quincy Wilson on my board, but he is still a quality cover man with big-play skills if the ball comes his way. The confidence he brings to the table as a man coverage corner may rub some teams wrong, but Tabor's play is worthy of a little leverage.

    With an average cornerback group on the roster, Tabor can step right into the Titans depth chart and make big contributions as a rookie.

18. Detroit Lions

18 of 34

    Dylan Buell/Getty Images

    The Pick: CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State

    Another cornerback and another Ohio State defender comes off the board midway through the first round. If you can't tell, the 2017 secondary class is loaded.

    Teaming Marshon Lattimore with Darius Slay and Quandre Diggs would give the Detroit Lions one of the best young secondaries in the NFL—a good problem to have when you're asked to face Aaron Rodgers twice a year. With no pass-rusher on the board who fits the Lions' scheme, Lattimore is both a value and need pick at No. 18 overall.

    The Lions will have some hard decisions to make along the offensive line and at linebacker spots, but getting an explosive cornerback with NFL size and instincts here is the best play for Detroit.

19. Washington

19 of 34

    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    The Pick: RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State

    The days of Matt Jones' fumbling away the ball are coming to an end with the selection of Dalvin Cook in Washington.

    Cook is an explosive three-down threat with game-changing speed and the vision to be an asset both between the tackles or in space. He's also a solid receiver out of the backfield or when flexed to the slot. When watching his tape, I've compared Cook to a young Jamaal Charles with a little less speed and more power. You might see a Le'Veon Bell comparison by the time this year's draft rolls around.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers

20 of 34

    Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images

    The Pick: Edge-rusher Takkarist McKinley, UCLA

    One of the biggest risers in the 2017 draft class, UCLA defensive end Takkarist McKinley is a smooth projection as a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to lose Jarvis Jones in free agency, and they could get both a replacement and an upgrade in one pick.

    McKinley is a natural fit in the 3-4 defense thanks to his experience as a college defensive end. He knows how to win with his hands and play with power but also has enough agility to dip and sprint in space to beat offensive tackles from a stand-up position.

    It was tempting to give Pittsburgh a cornerback or safety in this spot, but McKinley was too good to pass up.

21. New York Giants

21 of 34

    David Madison/Getty Images

    The Pick: DE Solomon Thomas, Stanford

    A natural pass-rusher from a 6-technique as a defensive end, Solomon Thomas has beaten up every opponent in front of him this season. Jason Pierre-Paul is set to hit free agency, and the Giants are paying big money for Olivier Vernon and Damon Harrison, so it's easy to envision the team will tab Thomas as a replacement in Round 1.

    Thomas, who is listed at 6'3" and 273 pounds, often lines up inside the tackle in the Stanford defense but has the athletic tools to play consistently on the edge in the pros. With his eight sacks, eight hits and 18 quarterback hurries this season, according to Pro Football Focus, he's showing the kind of production to merit a Round 1 selection.

22. Green Bay Packers

22 of 34

    Rob Foldy/Getty Images

    The Pick: G Dan Feeney, Indiana

    Offensive guards don't get enough love, which makes the case of Dan Feeney an interesting one as the first lineman off the board in this mock draft.

    Feeney has been the best draft-eligible offensive lineman I've seen so far this season. He's easy and smooth in pass protection, showing an understanding of space and angles while winning with his length and timing. In the run game, Feeney will get mean and can chip and attack at the second level like a pro.

    What general manager Ted Thompson does with his first-round pick will be interesting since there are needs in the secondary and the pass rush still needs help, but Feeney is a natural replacement for departed guard Josh Sitton.

23. Cleveland Browns (from Philadelphia)

23 of 34

    Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

    The Pick: T Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin

    The top offensive tackle in the 2017 draft class wasn't even ranked on my board four weeks ago. But Wisconsin junior Ryan Ramczyk impressed me when I went back to watch his play, making him a natural Round 1 pick.

    The Browns got a quarterback of the future with the top pick, and now they get a plug-and-play tackle to either take over the right tackle spot or slide into Joe Thomas's left tackle job if/when he leaves town. Ramczyk is a pro-level pass protector and stays true to the Wisconsin lineage with his ability to get nasty in the run game.

    As the Browns try to build a winner, grabbing high-impact, high-floor players like Ramczyk is key.

24. Atlanta Falcons

24 of 34

    Gregory Shamus/Getty Images

    The Pick: CB Jourdan Lewis, Michigan

    The Atlanta secondary is becoming a tough group to move the ball against with Desmond Trufant entrenched as one of the game's best cornerbacks, while rookie safety Keanu Neal is making plays already. Add another shutdown cornerback to this group with an improved pass rush in front of them, and the Falcons are ready to compete with anyone in the league.

    Jourdan Lewis isn't the biggest cornerback—he's estimated to be 5'10"—but his instincts and ball skills are some of the best in college. Lewis has great range and a knack for the ball that makes him a threat to pick off passes anytime the ball goes his direction. Another plus: Lewis is a good tackler when coming up to take on the run.

25. Houston Texans

25 of 34

    Frederick Breedon/Getty Images

    The Pick: LB Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt

    The Houston Texans defense is becoming a well-rounded group and will be even more dangerous with J.J. Watt back in 2017. But to remain competitive and stay ahead of the curve, adding another linebacker in the Benardrick McKinney mold is tough to pass up with Zach Cunningham on the board.

    Cunningham doesn't fill the most immediate need, but Brian Cushing has struggled in 2016, and the team will have to make free-agent decisions in the future with Cushing, Akeem Dent, John Simon and McKinney. To have Cunningham already on the roster and learning the defense is a major boost for the defense.

    In Cunningham the Texans get a linebacker with the tools to play all over the defense. He's not quite as thick as Jamie Collins, but his three-down impact reminds me of Collins at Southern Miss.

26. Seattle Seahawks

26 of 34

    Stacy Revere/Getty Images

    The Pick: T Cam Robinson, Alabama

    The Seattle Seahawks will head into the offseason with needs at offensive tackle, defensive tackle and cornerback. At pick No. 26, the smart pick is taking the highest-ranked player at the three spots. In this version of the first round, that's Alabama tackle Cam Robinson.

    Robinson is a massive man with great strength but limited flexibility. His future in the NFL is likely at right tackle, but there he could be a very good player with a high ceiling. Combining Robinson and 2016 first-rounder Germain Ifedi on the right side of the line would give Russell Wilson great protection, open up massive holes in the run game and give the front office two foundation pieces at a low cost on the offensive line.

27. Kansas City Chiefs

27 of 34

    Matthew Holst/Getty Images

    The Pick: CB Desmond King, Iowa

    Desmond King is an exciting playmaker at cornerback who excels in zone coverage. His lining up opposite Marcus Peters should terrify every quarterback the Kansas City Chiefs face.

    In the last two seasons, Peters and King have combined for 22 interceptions. That's notable because both are ignored to a certain level due to their playmaking reputations. King isn't as big or as physical as Peters, but he's arguably better at keeping the ball in front of him and preventing the big play. The combination of the two, though? That's a dream come true for a Chiefs secondary that desperately needs a legit No. 2 cornerback.

28. Oakland Raiders

28 of 34

    Frederick Breedon/Getty Images

    The Pick: LB Jarrad Davis, Florida

    Jarrad Davis has been on my radar for almost two seasons now after watching him all over the field when evaluating 2016 draft prospects. Seeing No. 40 roam from sideline to sideline making plays last year made Davis one of the first names in my 2017 database. Now it's his turn for the NFL draft, and his play and potential are of a Round 1 linebacker.

    Davis would be the answer to the problem at middle linebacker in Oakland. The team has talent around the middle of the field, but the gaping hole at the "Mike" position has to be addressed in this offseason. With Davis available and few other needs on paper for the Raiders, it's an easy choice to grab the Florida linebacker to anchor the Oakland defense.

29. Denver Broncos

29 of 34

    Scott Halleran/Getty Images

    The Pick: S Justin Evans, Texas A&M

    The Denver Broncos don't have a huge need at safety, but Justin Evans is too talented to let slide any farther down the board. General manager John Elway knows about the value of drafting for future needs and getting the best player available when you can.

    Evans is a playmaker and a hitter. He's incredibly well-coached thanks to defensive coordinator John Chavis' presence at A&M and would step in as a reliable three-down contributor for most defenses. If he's not needed right away in Denver on first and second down, Evans would be a punishing asset in nickel and dime packages.

    There will be calls for offensive linemen here or maybe a defensive tackle, but the best value for Denver was in addressing the safety position.

30. Philadelphia Eagles (from Minnesota)

30 of 34

    Harry How/Getty Images

    The Pick: WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, USC

    The Philadelphia Eagles have been rumored to want more help at wide receiver, per ESPN's Ed Werder. In a poor 2017 draft class at the position, general manager Howie Roseman would be wise to pull the trigger on one of the few Round 1 talents in the group.

    Smith-Schuster struggled early in the season, but once a quarterback change happened, the USC star took off and started to show the production to match his potential. There will still be those who doubt his play given the long list of busts coming out of USC at wide receiver, but Smith-Schuster has the body and power to match his route-running skills. That's a combination the previous top receivers from USC didn't possess and all the more reason to bet on Smith-Schuster in Round 1.

31. Dallas Cowboys

31 of 34

    Joe Robbins/Getty Images

    The Pick: DE Charles Harris, Missouri

    The Dallas Cowboys are surprising everyone in the NFL by getting to the quarterback without much star power on the defensive line. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli has done an admirable job of scheming pressure on opposing quarterbacks, but the offseason will give Dallas time to get a pass-rusher with the skill set to make plays on his own.

    Charles Harris hasn't been helped by Mizzou's scheme change, but he's flashed greatness at times (three sacks against Georgia) while showing a readiness and willingness against the run from his defensive end position. Getting Harris out of a scheme where he reacts to the snap instead of anticipating and firing off with speed would allow him to get back to the pass-rushing styles he showed before this season.

32. New England Patriots

32 of 34

    Joe Robbins/Getty Images

    The Pick: Edge-rusher Carl Lawson, Auburn

    Chandler Jones and Jamie Collins are both gone from the New England Patriots roster after two blockbuster trades in the last six months. Replacing their production can be done with schemes and by rotating in players with different skill sets, but the best true replacement will be finding high-caliber players with Day 1 NFL skills in the draft.

    Up first, Carl Lawson to replace Jones as the team's primary edge-rusher. Jabaal Sheard has played well, and he may be back in New England next season as a re-signed free agent, but Lawson gives the Patriots power and speed off the edge in an athletic package Sheard can't compete with. Using the two together to pinch offensive lines—with Malcom Brown in the middle—gives New England a viable (and cheap) pass rush to replace the players lost in trades.
