The Browns have an uber-warm left to the fore starting right now in Desmond Harrison, it’s just going to understand grow very old for him to profit NFL hermetically sealed and learn to concurrence gone the variety of counter moves he’ll viewpoint from gain pass-rushers. Little is a superb capacity too, and he’ll have had three years of schooling in the SEC.
7. Seattle Seahawks

8. New York Jets
Bobby Evans, OT, Oklahoma.

Evans is a mauler following well-ventilated feet and experience at right and left deliver.
9. Miami Dolphins
A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss. The Dolphins are one of the many teams that highly would gain if the repulsive origin was addressed at the forefront in the draft, but they can’t pass upon the utter idea skill set of Brown here.
10. Dallas Cowboys
N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State.Though not known for his disaffection skills, Harry is a grown man at receiver and would find the part for a huge boost to the Cowboys beneficiary room.

Anthony Johnson, WR, Buffalo. Same choose as lack week’s mock … it’s just too unmodified. The 49ers compulsion a teenage, boundary broad receiver who can create after the catch. That’s Johnson.
13. New York Giants
Drew Lock, QB, Missouri. The Giants are going to compulsion a authentic quarterback of the once soon. Lock has the arm strength and the gun-slinger mentality to stretch NFL defenses every one of Sunday, which should save one more defender out of the bin for Saquon Barkley.
14. Oakland Raiders from Bears
Devin White, LB, LSU. White misses more tackles than you’d as soon as. But you’concerning courteous to receive the bad taking into account the pleasant because his athleticism is at an elite level, and he’s still a relatively teenage artiste.

16. Cincinnati Bengals
Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State. On paper, the Bengals have one of the most adroitly-rounded rosters in the AFC. If there’s one glaring anodyne spot … it’s at right speak to. Risner is arguably the best right focus on in the country, an experienced blocker when a sturdy presenter and deceptive foot nimbleness nearby readiness-rushers.
17. Carolina Panthers
Zach Allen, DE, Boston College. Heading into 2019, the Panthers are going to have a colossal dependence upon the edge. Allen is a larger, heavier-than-taking place to acclaimed defensive fade away taking into account oppressive hands and a high motor.
18. Tennessee Titans
Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan. At more or less 6-feet-5 and 280 pounds, Gary can be a five technique in Tennessee’s base 3-4 and hurry the passer from the inside in nickel situations. He’s probably best upon the interior too.
19. Denver Broncos
Ryan Finley, QB, NC State. Will John Elway be gun shy to pick a quarterback in the first round after the Paxton Lynch debacle? Ehhh. Elway, of anyone, knows how a real, franchise quarterback can reinvigorate a team. Finley is an smoothly-schooled pocket passer when deafening athleticism.

22. Houston Texans
David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin. Even considering than third-round choose Martinas Rankin a promising blocker at left take in hand, Houston needs to load taking place upon repulsive pedigree gift to save Deshaun Watson tidy.
23. Baltimore Ravens
Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama. Despite yet playing capably, Eric Weddle is in the twilight of his career. Thompson is a bony safety who could learn from the veteran for a season at the forefront stepping in previously-door door to Tony Jefferson.
24. Green Bay Packers from Saints
Beau Benzschawel, G, Wisconsin. The Packers stay local to improve the interior of their belligerence pedigree. Benzschawel can see out of sorts at period still is a dancing bear at the protect slant.
25. Atlanta Falcons
Michael Deiter, G, Wisconsin. Couldn’t regulate this prefer from last week … it’s makes a lot of sense, as the Falcons way someone who could potentially do its stuff protect or right speak to.
26. Minnesota Vikings
Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina. If there’s one shape the Vikings could use, it’s more broad receiver extremity. Samuel is a decently sized, quick route-runner subsequent to full of zip triumph in the entre ground.
27. Jacksonville Jaguars
Tyree Jackson, QB, Buffalo. Jackson is a 6-7, 245-pound, very gymnastic quarterback taking into account a rocket arm. He’s a tiny raw at this narrowing, but he’s in for a omnipotent year which will likely gain to a major draft-amassing ascension in the spring.
28. Philadelphia Eagles
Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma. It wouldn’t treat badly the Eagles to have an effect on ahead a twitchy speedster at the beneficiary spot for 2019 and greater than. Brown is intensely that type of electric performer.
29. Green Bay Packers

31. Los Angeles Rams
Jeffrey Simmons, DT, Mississippi State. Ndamukong Suh is upon a one-year peace, and if he has one of his typical season in 2018, the Rams aren’t likely to be practiced to afford him. Simmons is a hand-use master later a powerful bull hurry in his arsenal.
32. New England Patriots
Te’von Coney, LB, Notre Dame. As of 2019, Dont’a Hightower will have two years left upon his goodwill, but the Patriots could stand to mount going on more athleticism to their organization of off-ball linebackers. Coney can be the Mike linebacker of the well along.
