It’s not really a surprise to see the Browns take Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett with the first pick. That’s the biggest no-brainer in the draft. Getting Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with the 12th pick isn’t exactly a shocker either. But it’s the best possible route for the Browns and their two first-round picks at this point.
The good news for Watson is that there’s absolutely no need to rush him onto the field. Already talented, despite what some draftniks might think, Watson gets a year on bench to watch Cody Kessler work or, maybe, to learn what NOT to do if Brock Osweiler ends up starting the season.
There’s a strange amount of smoke swirling about the Seahawks trading Richard Sherman. Even if that does eventually happen, the Seahawks might use this draft to start restocking the cornerback position. King is generating a lot of first-round buzz in the weeks leading up to the draft, and he has the size that fits in Seattle.
This pick came down to Mahomes or Vanderbilt linebacker Zach Cunningham. I went for high upside with Mahomes. If he pays off, he gives the Chiefs a franchise quarterback for the long term. A linebacker like Raekwon McMillan in the second round would then be a possibility.
For such a high-caliber team, the Cowboys are dangerously thin on talent at cornerback. Conley Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys is an instant starter in Dallas. Don’t be surprised if they draft two corners this year.
Mahomes or Kizer? Kizer or Mahomes? With Tony Romo retiring, it’s Cheap Basketball Jerseys likely that the Texans will face that decision on draft night. The pick could end up being Kizer, the more traditional pocket passer that might fit Bill O’Brien’s offense easier.
