2017 NFL Draft First Round Pick-by-Pick Analysis
Top 30 Players Still Available After 1st Round

1. (33 overall) Green Bay Packers (from Cleveland)

RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State

Merry Christmas, Green Bay. The Packers could use a corner and a dangerous running back, and there are options. Cook is too good to fall any further.

2. (34) Seattle Seahawks (from San Francisco)

OT Cam Robinson, Alabama

There’s no waiting any longer. The Seahawks shouldn’t have a problem getting the offensive tackle they need, but Michigan State DT Malik McDowell is an option.

3. (35) Jacksonville Jaguars

DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State

After nailing the Leonard Fournette pick earlier, the Jaguars get their defensive tackle help with a first round talent who slid.

4. (36) Chicago Bears

S Budda Baker, Washington

Everyone had Chicago getting Jamal Adams with the third overall pick, and then came the Mitchell Trubisky fun. Remember, the Bears didn’t have to give away a second rounder, and they’ll get their safety here. If could be NC State’s Josh Jones if it’s not Baker.

5. (37) Los Angeles Rams

CB Sidney Jones, Washington

The Rams should have their pick of a few different corner options. They’ll likely go Pac-12, either with Jones from Washington or Chidobe Awuzie from Colorado.

6. (38) Los Angeles Chargers

OG Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky

This couldn’t work out better. The Chargers got Phil Rivers his target in Mike Williams in the first round, and it gets the best guard – a need pick – in Lamp in the second.

7. (39) New York Jets

QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame

The Jets needed defensive back help, and they hit the jackpot getting Jamal Adams in the first round. They get even luckier when Kizer falls in their laps in the second.

8. (40) Carolina Panthers

OT Antonio Garcia, Troy

After getting Christian McCaffrey to help the ground game, now they get a guy who can blast away for him – and keep Cam Newton upright.

9. (41) Cincinnati Bengals

LB Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt

WR John Ross was a luxury item pick in the first round. Now it’s time to go to work with a leader and playmaker of a linebacker.

10. (42) New Orleans Saints

S Josh Jones, NC State

Or Budda Baker – whichever one is still available. Put the new safety next to Marshon Lattimore, and the Saints have their secondary set for a long time.

11. (43) Philadelphia Eagles

CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado

No one’s complaining about getting Derek Barnett to get to the quarterback, but the Eagles need corner help. It’ll be either Awuzie or Florida’s Quincy Wilson.

12. (44) Buffalo Bills

WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, USC

After addressing the cornerback problem with Tre’Davious White, now the Bills need receivers to boost up the attack. Smith-Schuster should be the best on the board by far.

13. (45) Arizona Cardinals

S Marcus Maye, Florida

It would be nice if a quarterback would be here, and maybe Brad Kaaya could be an interesting call, but the Cardinals will keep pushing on defense after landing Haason Reddick in the first.

14. (46) Indianapolis Colts

OG Dan Feeney, Indiana

The Colts got a gift in Malik Hooker, but they need help on the lines. Feeney is the blaster of a blocker the ground game needs.

15. (47) Baltimore Ravens

LB Tyus Bowser, Houston

It’s the right time to need linebackers – there will be several available. Will the Ravens shoot for the stars and grab Tim Williams from Alabama? Nah, but Bowser is an athletic prospect for the outside.

16. (48) Minnesota Vikings

LB Jordan Willis, Kansas State

Will the Vikings pull the trigger on Joe Mixon with their first pick of the draft? Nah. They’ll go outside linebacker with Williams a first round-caliber get at a great spot.

Top 30 Players Still Available After 1st Round

17. (49) Washington Redskins

S Justin Evans, Texas A&M

An interesting call to go along with getting a steal in Jonathan Allen in the first round, Evans is a hard-hitter who could take over the secondary.

18. (50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

RB Alvin Kamara, Tennessee

Will the Bucs go with the controversial issues with Joe Mixon? Kamara will be the safer choice for a variety of reasons, but Mixon would be the better pick – if they want to deal with the backlash.

19. (51) Denver Broncos

LB Alex Anzalone, Florida

An athletic linebacker who could line up in a variety of positions, he’s versatile enough to fit the Denver system and find a home.

20. (52) Cleveland (from Tennessee)

CB Kevin King, Washington

Will the Browns get a quarterback here? It’ll be tempting, but they’ll keep trying to fill holes, trying to pick between King, UCLA’s Fabian Moreau and Florida’s Quincy Wilson to take a key spot in a need position.

21. (53) Detroit Lions

DE/OLB Tim Williams, Alabama

Will the Lions take a chance? With an elite pass rusher still on the board to go along with LB Jarrad Davis for the inside, the defense will be beefing up fast.

22. (54) Miami Dolphins

OG Dion Dawkins, Temple

Dawkins goes inside, Laremy Tunsil goes to tackle, and the line starts to come together.

23. (55) New York Giants

RB D’Onta Foreman, Texas

How much would the Giants love to be able to take Joe Mixon? He’s the better option, but for an offense that likes battering rams, Foreman is a terrific option.

24. (56) Oakland Raiders

LB Ryan Anderson, Alabama

The Raiders need more linebacker options, and while more help on the inside would be nice, getting Anderson for the outside should work out just fine.

25. (57) Houston Texans

OG Dorian Johnson, Pitt

The line needs more help to keep it’s shiny new toy safe. Deshaun Watson should love the protection.

26. (58) Seattle Seahawks

S Obi Melifonwu, Connecticut

Needing help for the O line would be great, but considering Melifonwu seemed like a perfect fit if the Seahawks stayed around in the first round, he should be far better as a second round value pick.

27. (59) Kansas City Chiefs

CB Quincy Wilson, Florida

The Chiefs have a great secondary already, but they need just a little bit more of a boost. That’s where Wilson come in, where he’ll get picked on, but can handle it.

28. (60) Dallas Cowboys

CB Rasul Douglas, West Virginia

It’s the first of a few corners the Cowboys will likely go after. They need to keep addressing the secondary.

29. (61) Green Bay Packers

CB Fabian Moreau, UCLA

The run on corners continues. The Packers will figure out that they can get their running back with the first pick, and several corner options will still be there later.

30. (62) Pittsburgh Steelers

WR Curtis Samuel, Ohio State

Needing more explosive playmakers and another speedster to go along with Antonio Brown, the Steelers can use Samuel in a variety of ways, including out of the backfield.

31. (63) Atlanta Falcons

C Pat Elflein, Ohio State

It’s the find-a-spot pick. The Falcons need a guard, and Elflein can play anywhere on the inside. If one of the true guards slides this far – like Dion Dawkins or Dorian Johnson – it’s a done deal.

32. (64) Carolina Panthers (from New England)

DE Chris Wormley, Michigan

Assume the Panthers go with an offensive tackle with their first second round pick, but they need more pass rushers and more help up front. Wormley might not be a true playmaker in to the backfield, but he can step in right away and produce.
