2017 NFL Mock Draft – FIVE Rounds
Round One (1-20) | Round One (21-32) | Round Two | Round Three | Round Four | Round Five
108. Cleveland Browns
Keionta Davis, Defensive End, Tennessee-Chattanooga
The Browns are adding players in free agency and just looking for talent in the draft. Keionta Davis is a bit of a sleeper, but has a very high ceiling.
109. San Francisco 49ers
Malachi Dupre, Wide Receiver, LSU
The 49ers have added some wide receivers in free agency, but need to add some younger talent. While putting in a new offense, the 49ers could use offensive weapons besides their QB that can make big plays.
110. Jacksonville Jaguars
Dawaune Smoot, Defensive End, Illinois
The Jaguars want a front four that can blitz without having to bring extra guys as often as possible, and they need guys to constantly rotate in and out in order to do that.
111. Chicago Bears
Ethan Cooper, Offensive Guard, IUP
The Bears want to build in the trenches, and want maulers on the interior of the offensive line. Cooper didn’t play against top competition in college, but looks like a very high ceiling project, that could start in a year or two, and potentially become a star.
112. Los Angeles Rams
Eddie Jackson, Strong Safety, Alabama
The Rams have a new coaching staff and are revamping on both sides of the ball. They are changing their defensive scheme and needs some different types of secondary players.
113. Los Angeles Chargers
Cole Luke, Cornerback, Notre Dame
More help for the Chargers defense that simply needs to get better at getting off the field and help keep leads. Cole Luke is a tough corner that will the Chargers immediately in the secondary.
114. Washington Redskins (From Jets)
Tarell Basham, Defensive End, Ohio
Basham gets into the backfield, and the Redskins desperately need help at pressuring the opposing quarterback.
115. Carolina Panthers
Davon Godchaux, Defensive Tackle, LSU
The Panthers were a successful team when their front 7 was dominant. They have some older players on their defensive line that can help mentor an influx of talent at tackle and end.
116. Cincinnati Bengals
Taquan Mizzell, Running Back, Virginia
The Bengals need more offensive weapons. Mizzel will add a different dimension to the Bengals’ offense.
117. Chicago Bears (From Bills)
Mack Hollins, Wide Receiver, North Carolina
The Bears need some offensive weapons, and Mack Hollins is one of the most dynamic players in the draft. He will immediately contribute, and possibly star on special teams as well.
118. Philadelphia Eagles
Corn Elder, Cornerback, Miami
Another proven, tough, and reliable player, the Eagles add another quality player to their secondary. Corn Elder is tough, and fits Schwartz’ defensive philosophy.
119. Arizona Cardinals
Lorenzo Jerome, Free Safety, Saint Francis
Arizona lost a couple of safeties in free agency, and added an older one that is probably just a stop gap solution.
120. Minnesota Vikings
Elijah Qualls, Defensive Tackle, Washington
The Vikings could use an influx of youth to their defensive front. Qualls would be an anchor of that defensive line, allowing players around him to penetrate.
121. Indianapolis Colts
Josh Malone, Wide Receiver, Tennessee
The Colts have a strong passing game, but they depend too much on Hilton. They could use more weapons to help balance out their offense.
122. Baltimore Ravens
Howard Wilson, Cornerback, Houston
Wilson can play multiple places in the secondary, and will help add talent to a corner group that could use some depth.
123. Washington Redskins
Ahkello Witherspoon, Cornerback, Colorado
The Redskins continue to add tough, talented players to their defense, and Witherspoon is an underrated prospect that will immediately add depth to their secondary.
124. Tennessee Titans
Trey Hendrickson, Defensive End, Florida Atlantic
If the Titans could get to the quarterback and cause pressure a bit more, their offense probably could have maintained more consistency last year.
125. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Joe Williams, Running Back, Utah
Tampa Bay is a young team that is improving. They have talent all around, but do have some durability concerns with their running back group.
126. Denver Broncos
Taywan Taylor, Wide Receiver, Western Kentucky
The Broncos need to improve their offense, and that will start by finding out who their quarterback is, improving the offensive line, and also adding some help at wr.
127. Detroit Lions
Teez Tabor, Cornerback, Florida
Teez Tabor falls because, in a very deep cornerback class, he ran very, very slow. He has good tape, but there were concerns that the style of play didn’t show if he could cover fast receivers down the field. Put in the right position, he could thrive, but with other speedy cornerbacks available, he tumbled in the draft.
128. Minnesota Vikings (From Dolphins)
Krishawn Hogan, Wide Receiver, Marian
The Vikings got hit hard with injuries at key positions, and actually had some surprises at wide receiver emerge. If they can stabilize their offensive line and running game, adding more talent at wide receiver should be considered.
129. Oakland Raiders
Duke Riley, Outside Linebacker, LSU
Riley is a feisty, intense player that flies all over the field. He excels in all three phases of the game for the position: stopping the run, pass rush, and dropping into coverage.
130. Houston Texans
Kareem Hunt, Running Back, Toledo
The Texans actually run an offense that is supposedly very similar to the Patriots- they just haven’t put in the pieces to allow it to run on all cylinders. Hunt is a versatile back that they can use in many ways, allowing the offense to continue to try to get more dynamic.
131. New England Patriots (from Saints)
Marcus Maye, Free Safety, Florida
The Patriots have made a lot of moves in free agency, and they like to draft secondary players every year.
132. Kansas City Chiefs
Davis Webb, Quarterback, California
The Chiefs seem all in on Alex Smith, but they will need a quarterback at some point in this draft. Webb could use a few years to work on his technique, particularly his footwork.
133. Dallas Cowboys
Corey Levin, Offensive Guard, Chattanooga
The Cowboys are suddenly in need of offensive linemen. Yes, they signed Cooper, but he hasn’t worked out with the last few teams he has been with. With the departure of two key pieces, they still have three extremely talented players, but need to add a young player to start developing.
134. Green Bay Packers
Dylan Donahue, Outside Linebacker, West Georgia
The Packers do a great job of finding underrated players throughout the draft. Donahue is relentless, and would find a place in the Packers’ defense.
135. Pittsburgh Steelers
Justin Evans, Strong Safety, Texas A&M
Evans is a super tackler that can cover. He fits the long standing mold of Steeler defenders.
136. Atlanta Falcons
Conor McDermott, Offensive Tackle, UCLA
The Falcons offensive line played much better than they got credit for most of the year. A lot of that was scheme and play calling and a star at center. They could use some talent to keep the stability with the line.
137. Indianappolis Colts
Tarik Cohen, Running Back, North Carolina A&T
The Colts have an explosive offense, but it can run hot and cold. By adding a playmaker like Cohen, who can burst for big gains at any time, they will keep defenses guessing, and will have more options other than the deep ball, which they have had to depend on too much lately.
138. Cincinnati Bengals
Derek Rivers, Defensive End, Youngstown State
Adding some more versatile players on defense should help the Bengals stop being so predictable in their scheme.
139. Philadelphia Eagles (from Browns)
George Kittle, Tight End, Iowa
Kittle was known as being perhaps the best blocking tight end in this year’s draft, but showed surprising speed at the Combine.
140. New York Giants (moved due to penalty)
T.J. Logan, Running Back, North Carolina
D.J. Fluker is a low risk addition to the offensive line, but he has been a disappointment thus far in his NFL career. They can give him a year and see if he can live up to his talent. Adding another dynamic element to their offense should be a pressing need.
141. Los Angeles Rams
KD Cannon, Wide Receiver, Baylor
It will be interesting to see if the Rams will take a big step forward on offense this year. They could use a wide receiver for their brand new QB.
142. Houston Texans (from Browns)
Josh Augusta, Defensive Tackle, Missouri
The Texans defense is exceptional, and with questions over their QB, it will need to continue to lead the team. They have a dynamic and versatile defensive front, but that needs quality anchors.
143. San Francisco 49ers
Jaleel Johnson, Defensive Tackle, Iowa
More talent for the defense, the 49ers are completely changing their defense and need to add players that fit the new system.
144. Indianapolis Colts
Isaac Rochell, Defensive End, Notre Dame
Rochell can set the edge and be a powerful left defensive end that can be a force against the run.
