NFL Mock Draft 2017 0.75

17. Washington Redskins: Haason Reddick LB, Temple- After watching his tape I am a huge fan of Reddick. He can stand up in the middle, play outside linebacker, and go after the quarterback with some serious speed. It would also be unfair of me to not talk about his hustle. The Redskins lost Chris Baker in free agency and Trent Murphy is suspended early on in the year. Putting Reddick across from Kerrigan in the Skins 3-4 attacking scheme can be scary for the NFC East.

18. Tennessee Titans: Mike Williams WR, Clemson- Big, physical, number 1 receiver. Something the Titans haven’t had in a long time. Adding Williams will give Marcus Mariota the playmaker he needs to really take the next step. Williams is probably the number 1 receiver in the draft but he isn’t as fast as Ross and his route running isn’t as good as Davis which causes him to fall.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dalvin Cook RB, Florida State- We are keeping the boy in Florida. Doug Martin is getting old and suspended. Not a good combo. Charles Sims is a good pass catcher but running between the tackles isn’t his strong suit. Going with Cook, possibly the best runner in the draft, may help Winston take the next step.

20. Denver Broncos: Garrett Boles OT, Utah- ¬†Giving up 40 sacks last year can’t be blamed on Trevor Siemian. After tackle Russell Okung had his option declined, there is a need on the o-line. Give Paxton Lynch / Siemian / Tony Romo a little more time to get the ball to their playmakers and the Broncos may get back to the playoffs.

21. Detroit Lions: Taco Charlton DE, Michigan- Tied with the Browns for 2nd least sacks in 2016. You never want to be tied with the Browns. Charlton gives a pass rusher opposite Ziggy Ansah. You should also watch out for Jabrill Peppers to go to the Lions. Both of their safeties have expiring contracts and this year he could be used as a super utility player on D.

22. Miami Dolphins: Marlon Humphrey CB, Alabama- The Dolphins have a starting corner back who will either be Byron Maxwell or Tony Lippett. Adding Lawrence Timmons knocks out the need for linebacker so I think they try to improve the secondary.

23. New York Giants: David Njoku TE, Miami (FL) – Don’t be surprised if coach Ben McAdoo goes after a tight end to help Eli and Co. Njoku is very athletic and can help the offense by giving Eli another weapon.

24.  Oakland Raiders: Malik McDowell DL, Michigan State- The Raiders ranked dead last in sacks last season. McDowell is great up the middle and create pressure inside releasing Khalil Mack from double teams. McDowell is injury prone but is also a great talent the Raiders can gamble on.
