Carl Falk's Updated Mock NFL Draft

1.  Browns- Josh Allen-QB Wyoming- I had Darnold here originally, but now leaning towards Allen. I think it’s a mistake, but (hand) size matters to Dorsey

2.  NY Giants- Bradley Chubb-DE NC St- Tempted to trade down, but in the end, JPP is in Tampa, Big Blue is best when it has big time DEE, Chubb fits perfectly 

3.  NY Jets- Baker Mayfield-QB Oklahoma- Fiery leader who is very accurate. Not perfect but if he wins, NYC will love him 

4.  Bills- Sam Darold-QB-USC- This is a gift to Beane and McDermott. It costs the 12, 22, 53 and next years 2, but they land the closest thing to a can’t miss of the QBs 

5.  Patriots-Josh Rosen-QB UCLA- The rebuild that’s coming, now has a face. Pats use 23, 31, 43 & a 2019 second, but had to get a head of Miami 

6.  Dolphins (Trade with Colts)-Lamar Jackson-QB Louisville - They wanted Rosen, Gase got the job in Miami because he’s a quarterback whisperer. Jackson has huge upside but will need time to develop. Cost of trade is the 11, 42 & 2019 second. 

7.  Buccaneers -Quinten Nelson-G ND- Staying true to your board ensures quality picks. Give Jameis a rock up front 

8.  Browns-Sequan Barkley-RB-Penn St- Browns move up from 12 to get the guy they wanted at 4. Cost is 12 & 35 

9.  49ers-Minkah Fitzpatrick-S Bama-Garapolo is cornerstone of this team, but the defense can’t be overlooked and Fitzpatrick is one of the best players in the draft 

10. Raiders-Roquan Smith-LB Georgia-Mack and Smith will terrorize offenses for Gruden 

11. Colts-Derwin James-S Florida St-Getting Luck help will have to wait for round 2, James is too good to pass on 

12. Bears-Tremaine Edmunds-LB Va Tech-Urlacher is going in the Hall of Fame, the bears draft a placement, finally 

13. Redskins-Denzel Ward-CB Ohio St-It’s a passing league, and the best corner in the draft doesn’t go until 13. 

14. Packers-Harold Landry-OLB Boston College-Clay Matthews is close to the end, Landry gives an upgrade that will allow for a seamless transition 

15. Cardinals-Mike McGlinchey-OT ND-They wanted a QB, loved Lamar Jackson, but the Dolphins overpaid to get him, so they get a protector for Bradford. Too bad they could draft bubble wrap 

16. Ravens-Joshua Jackson-CB Iowa-For years, Ozzie Newsome was as better than most in the draft, he goes with a safe pick that fills a need to get back on track 

17. Chargers-Vita Vea-DT Washington-Big, fast, nasty guy to press the middle and make the Chargers defensive front one of the best 

18. Seahawks-Marcus Davenport-Edge UTSA-Legion of boom is gone, as is Michael Bennett, small school guy starts the rebuild 

19. Cowboys-Calvin Ridley-WR Bama-Too good, too much of a need to pass on. Will McClay would have gone defense, but Jerry likes flashy toys, so he gets Dez replacement 

20. Lions-Tavern Bryan-DT Florida-Many needs, but Matt Patricia gets a cornerstone to build around 

21. Bengals-Rashaan Evans-LB Bama-Marvin Lewis can’t count on Vontaze Burfict, Evans is an eventual replacement, and by eventual, I mean week 1 

22. Browns-Isaiah Wynn-OG Georgia-Very good player, Browns add another big piece on offense. 

23. Broncos-Conner Williams-OT Texas-Not a QB, but a protector for Keenum, he bookends with Bolles 

24. Panthers-Mike Hughes-CB UCF-Time to get a replacement for Josh Norman. Last year Panthers focused on offense, it’s time to fix the defense 

25. Titans-Leighton Vander Esch-LB Boise St-Could be a star, but only played six games in 2016, so essentially a 1 year starter 

26. Falcons-Da’Ron Payne-DT Bama-Could be a force against run. But, several Alabama DT have been first round picks, not many have made pro bowls 

27. Saints-Dallas Goedert-TE-South Dakota St-Brees has a few years left, Saints surrounding him with talent 

28. Steelers-Mike Gesiki-TE Penn St-Jesse James is best know for a catch he didn’t make. Gesiki is a freak athlete who will benefit from Bell & AB 

29. Jaguars-Cortland Sutton-WR-SMU-Hurns & Robinson are gone, Bortles was a surprising re-sign, he gets the first WR off the board 

30. Vikings-Jaire Alexander-CB Louisville-When you have talent everywhere, you can take the best player available 

31. Broncos-Darius Guice-RB-LSU-Might be the best back in the draft. QB comes later, but for now, OL & RB will make the offense really good 

32. Eagles-Isaiah Oliver-CB Colorado-Secondary is one of the few areas that isn’t a strength, this helps make it one
