Prisco's NFL Mock Draft 2.0: 49ers, Jets and Bills gamble on QBs in top 10
It's combine time, which means it's also time for Pete Prisco's second mock draft of 2017
It’s NFL Scouting Combine week in Indianapolis, which means the league will convene there to watch players work out, evaluate the draft and do a lot of free-agent tampering -- including getting deals done -- that nobody will care about, even if it violates league rules.
They all do it, so nobody reports it. But this is a lock: Deals will get done over shrimp cocktails and steaks at St. Elmo Steakhouse.
With some players getting hit with franchise tags and heavy-contract veterans being let go, the roster pictures in the NFL are crystallizing some, which makes doing a Mock 2.0 easier than .
We still have free agency and a few more months of draft evaluation to go, but here’s my second attempt at a mock.
Once again, don’t hold me to it.
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M: They will take him with the idea they can solve their quarterback issues elsewhere. It’s probably the right thing to do.
5. Tennessee Titans (from Los Angeles)
Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State: He would give them a ball-hawking player on the back end of their defense. They could also go corner here.
Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech: They have to solve their quarterback position at some point. This is a player scouts are raving about lately.
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama: He is a player who could step in and start right way, bringing some needed speed to the linebacker group.
10. Buffalo Bills
12. Cleveland Browns (from Philadelphia)
15. Philadelphia Eagles (from Minnesota)
16. Baltimore Ravens
Budda Baker, S, Washington: The back end of their defense needs upgrading. This is a kid scouts are raving about.
18. Tennessee Titans
Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida: They addressed safety earlier in this draft, so now why not take a corner?
20. Denver Broncos
21. Detroit Lions
22. Miami Dolphins
23. New York Giants
24. Oakland Raiders
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama: They have to get better play at corner from what they got last year. Humphrey can step in and help right away. The Raiders could also consider linebacker here.
25. Houston Texans
26. Seattle Seahawks
28. Dallas Cowboys
31. Atlanta Falcons
