7 Round NFL Mock Draft

This will be the 16th year that I have mocked a full 7 round NFL mock for the upcoming NFL Draft!  This is merely an exercise in value, possibilities, and fun to try and fit the pieces and see where value falls or what teams could do.  This is my FINAL mock draft.    

Remember: Not every team will draft for need or value (or sometimes either one). For the later rounds, I ditch positional need and try to fit longshots with teams that may take them or sign them as UDFAs.  

I did not mock any trades (though many will happen,) and this often leads to me matching players with teams even if the player won’t go as high. Feel free to send me your feedback on Twitter: @ShanePHallam

Round 1

1. Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray QB/Oklahoma

This seems like it will be the pick for the Cardinals at this point.  Murray is a dynamic player that fits Kingsbury’s offensive scheme. Though I liked Josh Rosen a lot, I can understand the move if they feel Murray will put this team on the map (a la Baker Mayfield last year).  Hopefully they can move Rosen and get some value back if the Cardinals make this pick.

2. San Francisco 49ers – Quinnen Williams DL/Alabama

My mock differs from many at number 2.  Everyone is assuming the 49ers go Bosa here, but Williams is the top defender on many boards.  He is a better fit for the 49ers defensive system and could be a gamechanger from Day 1. Don’t be surprised if Quinnen goes ahead of Bosa.  

 3.  New York Jets – Nick Bosa DE/Ohio State

The Jets are trying to trade down and having Nick Bosa available could be their success.  If the Jets stay put, Bosa makes sense and could fill the Myles Garrett role in Gregg Williams defense.  Bosa is a surefire blue chip prospect in this draft (as is Quinnen Williams,) and worth the pick at 3 for whoever gets it.

4.  Oakland Raiders – Ed Oliver DT/Houston

The reports that the “Raiders could make a surprise pick at 4,” is the same report as any pick.  Yes, they COULD make a surprise pick. A few weeks ago, Ed Oliver would have been a surprise pick at 4, but he no longer is.  He was a dominant college player and can play any D-line position. I feel like Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden will both love his game and ignore the “attitude” questions (if they are even real).  Mold your defense around him and let him wreck.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Devin White LB/LSU

Devin White is a legit threat and he feels like a Jason Licht type of pick.  A rangy ILB is more important than most think and having a stud in the middle of the Bucs defense could really help jump start the defense to competing in more games.

6.  New York Giants – Clelin Ferrell DE/Clemson

This is a bit surprising pick, but I feel like the Giants may want a true Edge player over Josh Allen.  Ferrell would be an excellent fit in the Giants defense and they could move up for a QB later if so inclined.

7.  Jacksonville Jaguars – Josh Allen LB/Kentucky

The Jaguars may prefer a RT like Jawaan Taylor, but it is tough to pass up Josh Allen if he would fall.  Big, athletic, and productive this past year, it is obvious why NFL teams like Allen.

8.  Detroit Lions – TJ Hockenson TE/Iowa

Detroit is devoid of a TE and if their attempted trade last year to get Gronk is any indication, they value the position.  Hockenson could become the best weapon on the Lions.

9.  Buffalo Bills – Jawaan Taylor OT/Florida

The Bills made some good offensive line signings, but nothing long term.  Taylor’s athletic upside puts him squarely in the Top Ten and the Bills could find a way to utilize him.

10.  Denver Broncos – Drew Lock QB/Missouri

I don’t think Drew Lock goes at 10, but I think the Broncos find a way to get him in the first round.  Hopefully John Elway picks the right QB for once.

11.  Cincinnati Bengals – Devin Bush LB/Michigan

If Devin Bush is still around, this could be a slam dunk for the Bengals.  It is their biggest hole and a big upside player.

12.  Green Bay Packers – Jonah Williams OT/Alabama

Jonah Williams can play inside or out and though he may not have the upside of other O-lineman, he will be a solid starter for awhile.

13.  Miami Dolphins – Christian Wilkins DL/Clemson

A Clemson lineman seems likely for the Dolphins if they pass on a QB.  I believe Wilkins fits better as a whole for the Dolphins defense and should start almost immediately.

14.  Atlanta Falcons – Dexter Lawrence DT/Clemson

The Falcons defense can use an upgrade and Dexter Lawrence could help in stopping the run and providing some pressure from the middle.

15.  Washington Redskins – Dwayne Haskins QB/Ohio State

Washington may move up for Haskins, but there is a possibility he falls down here.  Haskins is my QB1 and it would be a slam dunk for Washington to get him.

16.  Carolina Panthers – Andre Dillard OT/Washington State

Protecting Cam Newton should be first and foremost.  Andre Dillard may end up the most successful offensive Lineman in this class and his versatility should help.

17.  New York Giants (from Cleveland Browns) – Daniel Jones QB/Duke

I think the Giants end up with Daniel Jones somehow.  He isn’t very good and needs developed, so maybe he could work in NYG.  I’m not holding out hope though.

18.  Minnesota Vikings – Cody Ford OG/Oklahoma

Not a sexy pick, but a Spielman type pick.  Ford will plug in Day 1 and be a solid starter.

19.  Tennessee Titans – Garrett Bradbury C/NC State

The Titans have a big hole at OG and Bradbury should be able to slide over to OG and be very good.  The last ditch effort to advance Marcus Mariota should be the priority for the Titans

20.  Pittsburgh Steelers – Rock Ya-Sin CB/Temple

Rock Ya-Sin is really good and he fits the Steelers well as an athletic playmaker.  He can start off slowly as the CB4 and eventually move up.

21.  Seattle Seahawks – Montez Sweat DE/Mississippi State

I honestly have no idea where Montez Sweat goes with his medical, but feel like the Seahawks would be willing to take the chance if he slides down to them.

22.  Baltimore Ravens – Erik McCoy C/Texas A&M

Most don’t have McCoy in the first round, but his versatility and fit with the Ravens make me think this is a strong possibility.  Perhaps the Ravens move down and take him.

23.  Houston Texans – Kaleb McGary OT/Washington

The mammoth McGary would give the Texans a starter on the offensive line that is desperately needed.  He reminds me of a Nate Solder type as a starter with big upside.

24.  Oakland Raiders (from Chicago Bears) – Rashan Gary DE/Michigan

Once again, I am not sure where Gary falls due to the medical, and this may be too low, but the Raiders would snatch him up in a second during the rebuilding process.

25.  Philadelphia Eagles – Marquise Brown WR/Oklahoma

Marquise Brown looks to be going in the first round and without major holes, the Eagles are going to bring all weapons on deck for Carson Wentz.

26.  Indianapolis Colts – Brian Burns DE/Florida State

I am not sure if Burns is a Chris Ballard type of choice as he still needs a lot of work, but the structure is there for him to succeed.

27.  Oakland Raiders (from Dallas Cowboys) – Josh Jacobs RB/Alabama

This pick is fairly blaisé, but Jacobs seems like someone Mayock and Gruden would like.  Plus their RB position might be the largest hole in the NFL.

28.  Los Angeles Chargers – Jeffery Simmons DT/Mississippi State

I think Simmons goes in the 1st round, and the Chargers could be a good fit.  They have some flexibility with his injury and can bring him up in a good locker room.

29.  Seattle Seahawks (from Kansas City Chiefs)- Darnell Savage S/Maryland

Darnell Savage is a first rounder athletically and may go much higher than 29.  The Seahawks need a safety badly and will go for that upside.

30.  Green Bay Packers (from New Orleans Saints) – Noah Fant TE/Iowa

This is another common pick, but the fit is too good.  A new weapon for Rodgers and Fant can be a TE2 for awhile as he develops.

31.  Los Angeles Rams – Johnathan Abram S/Mississippi State

I think safety is higher on the Rams priority list than many believe, and Abram appears to be a player they covet

32.  New England Patriots – Byron Murphy CB/Washington

I’m not sure if the Pats would take a CB, but Byron Murphy is too good to not be a first round pick.

Round 2

33. Arizona – N’Keal Harry WR/Arizona State

The WR value is great and the Cardinals need an outside WR weapon.

34.  Indianapolis (from N.Y. Jets)- A.J. Brown WR/Ole Miss

AJ Brown in the slot for Indy would be ridiculous

35.  Oakland – Greedy Williams CB/LSU

Greedy falls because he doesn’t tackle, and Oakland gets another upside potential steal.

36.  San Francisco – Deebo Samuel WR/South Carolina

Deebo is the playmaker the 49ers need for their offense and a great Shannahan fit.

37.  N.Y. Giants – Chris Lindstrom OL/Boston College

If the Giants don’t take offensive line in the first, there should be a few options in the second.

38.  Jacksonville – Will Grier QB/West Virginia

Grier will likely go Top 50 and the Jaguars can bring him along slowly behind Foles.

39.  Tampa Bay – Jerry Tillery DT/Notre Dame

If Gerald McCoy is out, a replacement is needed.

40.  Buffalo – DK Metcalf WR/Ole Miss

NFL teams seem split on Metcalf, but the Bills seem to like him.

41.  Denver – Sean Bunting CB/Central Michigan

Bunting is underrated and if Chris Harris is out, they will need more CBs.

42.  Cincinnati – Greg Little OT/Ole Miss

Little can help strengthen a Bengals O-line that is weak in some areas.

43.  Detroit – Nasir Adderley S/Delaware

Adderley this late could be a steal and an instant starter in Detroit.

44. Green Bay – Parris Campbell WR/Ohio State

Campbell could go in the first round, and be an immediate #2 for the Packers

45.  Atlanta – Dalton Risner OL/Kansas State

Risner is another potential 1st round pick who can play inside and out.

46.  Washington – Hakeem Butler WR/Iowa State

More weapons for Dwayne Haskins would be a plus and Butler is legit

47.  Carolina – Zach Allen DE/Boston College

Allen is an underrated pass rusher with big impact

48.  Miami – Ryan Finley QB/NC State

Miami has to take some shot at QB and Ryan Finley has the leadership style to fit them.

49.  Cleveland – Dre’Mont Jones DT/Ohio State

Jones is coveted for his pass rush ability and Cleveland’s Front 7 would get more dangerous.

50. Minnesota – Tytus Howard OT/Alabama State

Howard has moved up boards.  2 O-lineman means Vikings go all in on fixing their big problem.

51.  Tennessee – Irv Smith TE/Alabama

The Titans do have Jonnu Smith, but Irv is a more complete weapon.

52.  Pittsburgh – Kelvin Harmon WR/NC State

The Steelers add a 3rd WR who can play physically.

53.  Philadelphia (from Baltimore) – Juan Thornhill S/Virginia

Thornhill could go much higher as his playmaking ability will be valued.

54.  Houston (from Seattle) – Deandre Baker CB/Georgia

Baker isn’t flashy, but he can play.  A steal for Houston here.

55.  Houston – Chauncey Garden-Johnson S/Florida

Houston’s weakness in the secondary could be fixed in Round 2 with CGJ.

56.  New England (from Chicago) – Jace Sternberger TE/Texas A&M

The ideal replacement for Gronk, Sternberger is a Pats type.

57.  Philadelphia – Elgton Jenkins C/Mississippi State

Jenkins could be a swing back-up with potential for OG in the future.

58.  Dallas – Jaylon Ferguson DE/Louisiana Tech

Cowboy fans may kill me for not giving them Taylor Rapp, but Ferguson has awesome tape and fits the defense well.

59.  Indianapolis – Taylor Rapp S/Washington

I think the Colts could move up in the 2nd for Rapp and complete their defensive rebuild.

60.  L.A. Chargers – Deionte Thompson S/Alabama

Thompson + James could be a dynamic safety duo.

61.  Kansas City – Joejuan Williams CB/Vanderbilt

A good #2 type of CB who can jam at the line

62.  New Orleans – Terry McLaurin WR/Ohio State

McLaurin would be a jack of all trades for the Saints as a good weapon.

63.  Kansas City (from L.A. Rams) – Chase Winovich DE/Michigan

The Chiefs could use more pass rush outside of Frank Clark.  Winovich can do it all.

64.  New England – Jachai Polite LB/Florida

Steal and upside pass rusher.
