1st/15 Malik Hooker, S Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 206 School: Ohio State With only eight interceptions last season, which was tied for second worst in the NFL, it wasn’t a surprise to see the Colts select Malik Hooker who had seven interceptions alone this past year.

1st/7 Mike Williams, WR Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 218 School: Clemson After a second straight injury shortened season to Kennan Allen forced the Chargers hand to go out and find a new go to receiver.

1st/10 Patrick Mahomes, QB Ht.: 6-2 Wt.: 225 School: Texas Tech Wanting to find the future franchise quarterback the Chiefs moved up seventeen spots in a trade with Buffalo.

May 6, 2017 Brian Johannes 0

1st/4 Leonard Fournette, RB Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 240 School: LSU With Tom Coughlin hired as the vice president of football operations it was clear that the Jaguars were not going to be throwing the ball 625 times in a season again.

1st/5 Corey Davis, WR Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 209 School: Western Michigan Adding a weapon for Marucs Mariota was a top for the Titans as they wasted little time taking Corey Davis with their first of their two picks. While there were concerns with Davis since he was unable to work out for teams with an…

2nd/35 Malik McDowell, DT Ht.: 6-6 Wt.: 295 School: Michigan State Supremely talented McDowell at times can look like one of the best players in this draft and will long stretches where he disappears and looks disinterested. Seattle is hoping the culture they’ve built and the leaders they have in the building can hold McDowell…

1st/3 Solomon Thomas, DE Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 273 School: Stanford With so many needs on their roster the 49ers couldn’t afford to be picky and needed to take the best available prospect.

May 3, 2017 Brian Johannes 0

1st/30 TJ Watt, OLB Ht.: 6-5 Wt.: 252 School: Wisconsin The Steelers are still running out James Harrison at age 38 so the selection of a rush outside linebacker in the first round was not surprising at all. TJ Watt had been rumored to the Steelers for quite some time leading up to the draft…
