Original selection: Myles Garrett, DE
Re-draft selection: Deshaun Watson, QB
At the time, with so abounding questions about the top quarterback prospects, the Browns acutely fabricated the adapted accommodation in allotment the top pass-rusher in the abstract class. It formed out well, but they still went winless in 2017.
If Cleveland called the top signal-caller, the fanbase would’ve acceptable acclaimed a few wins and an end to futility at the position with Deshaun Watson beneath center.
A broken ACL batty Watson’s amateur season, but he showed abundant in his seven amateur to advance there’s abundant abeyant to bloom into a authorization signal-caller. The Clemson artefact went drive-for-drive with Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson in a Anniversary 8 shootout.

As a rotational pass-rusher, Elvis Dumervil led the San Francisco 49ers in sacks with 6.5 in 341 snaps. Brian Hoyer didn’t aftermost as the band-aid quarterback, but he served his purpose in six starts. The administration acquainted adequate achievement accommodating in award a authorization signal-caller and snagged Jimmy Garoppolo midseason.
Since Watson account the 2017 re-draft class, the 49ers should booty the best arresting lineman to ster their canyon rush. Absent in the Browns’ winless season, Garrett logged seven sacks for an underrated aegis that ranked No. 7 in hasty yards accustomed and No. 14 in absolute yards surrendered.
The Texas A&M artefact didn’t disappoint. Blame the worst-scoring breach in the alliance for the Browns’ historically poor season.
San Francisco couldn’t do any bigger in the win-loss cavalcade (5-0) with a altered aces and Garoppolo beneath center, but Garrett would’ve been a cornerstone asset and set the 49ers up for a bigger jump in 2018.
3 of 32
Original accession (by San Francisco via trade): Solomon Thomas, DL
Re-draft selection: Mitchell Trubisky, QB
Last April, accepted administrator Ryan Pace didn’t accept a lot of grade-A marks for trading up to the No. 2 aperture in barter for a third- and fourth-rounder in that abstract forth with a third-round aces in the accessible accession process.
Trubisky didn’t attending as atomic as Watson, but he had bottom abhorrent assets at his disposal. Kendall Wright accomplished as the Chicago Bears’ top wideout with 614 yards, and he abandoned started four games.
Despite accident wideout Cameron Meredith to the New Orleans Saints, the Bears attending accessible to cycle out Phase 2 in Trubisky’s development by abacus pass-catchers. Bold Allen Robinson II absolutely recovers from a broken ACL, he’ll advance the advanced receiver group. Don’t beddy-bye on bound end Trey Burton as a reliable receiver all over the field.
Finally, the fanbase is bridge its fingers in hopes that 2015 No. 7 all-embracing aces Kevin White stays advantageous and contributes as a accompaniment to Allen on the perimeter.
Beyond his box account numbers, Trubisky didn’t attending baby on the able stage. Already he stepped in for quarterback Mike Glennon, the North Carolina artefact looked adequate in the huddle. At times, he activated his athleticism to accomplish article out of nothing.
4 of 32
Original selection: Leonard Fournette, RB
Re-draft selection: Leonard Fournette, RB

During chargeless bureau and into the 2017 season, the Jaguars added several key players on aegis and best a concrete active aback in Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 all-embracing selection. In added words, Jacksonville set out to asperous up its opponents on both abandon of the ball.

Unlike Hunt, Fournette never accomplished with beneath than 10 carries in a game. His adeptness to handle the anguish in aerial aggregate became allotment of the Jaguars’ abhorrent identity. In this scenario, it’s a stylistic fit that makes faculty alike a year later.
5 of 32
Original selection: Corey Davis, WR
Re-draft selection: Marshon Lattimore, CB
The Arresting Amateur of the Year wouldn’t abatement accomplished No. 5. The Tennessee Titans went with a advanced receiver in this atom and chose cornerback Adoree’ Jackson to abode their accessory 13 slots bottomward at No. 18.
In hindsight, cornerback Marshon Lattimore and standout assurance Kevin Byard would’ve bound bottomward sections of the field. The bike could’ve angry Dick LeBeau’s aegis into a takeaway factory.
The Ohio State artefact became a playmaker already he stepped on the acreage with the Saints, which would’ve animated their defense. The Titans struggled on the aback end, which explains their move to access cornerback Malcolm Butler during the offseason.
Corey Davis had a hamstring abrasion during his amateur year, but he flashed some abeyant backward in the approved analysis and the playoffs.

6 of 32
Original selection: Jamal Adams, S
Re-draft selection: Tre’Davious White, CB
Most New York Jets admirers wouldn’t barter Jamal Adams for any added safety. Beyond his solid comedy on the field, the LSU artefact brings courage and appearance to the locker room. He’s the guy who’s activity to authority his teammates answerable at every turn.
However, the Jets could’ve called a altered LSU anticipation to strengthen the secondary. Tre’Davious White took the acreage and performed to the akin of a assured No. 1 cornerback who can go one-on-one with the opposition’s best wideout. He’s a solid accession to Lattimore amid the amateur cornerbacks and placed additional in Arresting Amateur of the Year voting.
White snagged four interceptions and bankrupt up 18 passes with the Buffalo Bills. He fabricated all 16 appearances as a constant obstacle for pass-catchers throughout the 2017 term.

7 of 32
Original selection: Mike Williams, WR
Re-draft selection: Kareem Hunt, RB
The Los Angeles Chargers called advanced receiver Mike Williams at No. 7. He didn’t move the aggravate at all in 10 appearances. Fortunately, wideout Keenan Allen ill-fitted up for all 16 games. The casual advance accomplished No. 1 in yards.

For the third afterwards season, active aback Melvin Gordon bootless to boilerplate four yards per carry. On the ablaze side, he put calm his best advantageous analysis with 1,581 yards from scrimmage. However, Los Angeles still accomplished with the No. 24 hasty breach in the NFL.
Hunt led the alliance with 1,327 hasty yards and averaged 4.9 yards per carry. With Gordon and Hunt, the Chargers breach would’ve broiled defenses like the Saints’ active aback duo during the antecedent campaign. Arch drillmaster Anthony Lynn could appointment wonders with two high-end dual-threat tailbacks—especially the one who can move the brawl added than four yards per carry.
8 of 32
Original selection: Christian McCaffrey, RB
Re-draft selection: Alvin Kamara, RB
Running aback Alvin Kamara produced the numbers abounding anticipation Christian McCaffrey would accomplish as a ball-carrier with solid route-running skills. The Tennessee artefact bankrupt out as the best accepting tailback in the 2017 class.
Once the Saints traded Adrian Peterson in October, Kamara emerged as a matchup daydream for defenses. Quarterback Drew Brees targeted him 100 times as a receiver. He accomplished with 81 catches for 826 yards and bristles touchdowns. By the way, the able tailback led the alliance in yards per backpack with 6.1.
McCaffrey came aing to Kamara as a pass-catcher with 80 receptions for 651 yards and bristles scores, but he fell added abaft as a ball-carrier with 435 yards, averaging 3.7 yards per blitz attempt.
It’s important to agenda the Saints accept bigger inline blocking, but the Abhorrent Amateur of the Year looked a bit added atomic and ambiguous with the football in space. Kamara would’ve additionally compensated for the Carolina Panthers’ abridgement of reliable pass-catching options.

It’s still aboriginal in the development process. Nonetheless, the Bengals would acceptable go with a top-tier ambit protector in a analysis with defenses that can bones quarterbacks in a hurry. Cincinnati abhorrent tackles struggled to absorber the pocket.
Ryan Ramczyk played on the larboard and adapted abandon as a amateur through 16 amateur with the Saints. Opposite Cordy Glenn, whom the Bengals acquired via barter with the Bills, Cincinnati wouldn’t accept to anguish about edge-rushers consistently breaking bottomward its aegis on the ends.

Despite the baby sample size, Kansas City acquainted adequate trading Smith and axis the reins over to Mahomes for 2018.
Tyrod Taylor played quarterback on attenuate ice with the Bills over the accomplished brace of seasons. The alignment showed little confidence in him as the abiding starter, which became axiomatic aback amateur Nathan Peterman logged a alpha over the advantageous 28-year-old during the antecedent term.
Buffalo could’ve had a bigger plan in abode with Mahomes cat-and-mouse to booty over for Taylor, who’s aback been dealt to the Browns. It makes alike added faculty in hindsight aback because the Bills authority the No. 12 atom afterwards a ablaze attempt at a top signal-caller in the accessible draft.
11 of 32
Original selection: Marshon Lattimore, CB
Re-draft selection: Marlon Humphrey, CB
Three of the Saints’ abstract picks accept appear off the lath aural the top 10 selections, which leaves accepted administrator Mickey Loomis scrambling for replacements.
Based on two of New Orleans’ top three 2017 abstract picks, it’s ablaze the advanced appointment capital to bind up the aback end of the defense. Sticking with that theme, cornerback Marlon Humphrey would be an adapted best at No. 11.
His amateur advance doesn’t analyze to Lattimore’s arch season. However, the Alabama artefact showed the adeptness to alpha on the perimeter. He logged two interceptions and 11 canyon breakups in 16 appearances, including bristles starts.
Humphrey played 54.5 percent of the arresting snaps with the Baltimore Ravens during the antecedent term. Lattimore saw the acreage in 71.0 percent of the time.

Re-draft selection: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR
At the top of this re-draft, the Browns adapted their amiss and netted Watson with the No. 1 all-embracing pick. Next, he’d charge some weapons.
Only one pass-catcher in Cleveland accomplished with added than 40 catches and 400 yards aftermost year. Active aback Duke Johnson racked up 74 receptions for 693 yards. With Watson already in the fold, wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster would complete a solid one-two bite in the casual attack.
It’s a adamantine us to absorb for Browns fans, who watched Smith-Schuster boss in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform, but he accomplished the 2017 advance as the best advantageous amateur advanced receiver. He aggregate 58 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 amateur as a accessory option.
In Cleveland, on the accepting end of Watson’s passes, Smith-Schuster could’ve been in the Pro Bowl conversation. He’s additionally a accommodating downfield acquaintance who isn’t abashed to claiming a linebacker in efforts to bounce a assistant on the run.
13 of 32
Original selection: Haason Red, LB
Re-draft selection: Jamal Adams, S
The Arizona Cardinals absitively to cut ties with LSU artefact Tyrann Mathieu because of banking differences. Why not access a cheaper advantage at assurance from the aforementioned affairs in Jamal Adams? As mentioned, he brings appearance to a locker allowance forth with versatility.
As a able safety, Adams’ amateur numbers don’t angle out, but he can band up in assorted spots. The new apprenticeship agents could use him in bound end-coverage assignments or a the box for abutment adjoin the run.
That versatility increases his ambit of capability. Furthermore, he’d be a affection backup for an All-Pro arresting aback who went elsewhere.
Without a anxiously advantageous amateur beneath center, the Cardinals charge to strengthen their canyon aegis with the bigger offenses in the NFC West. Having Adams and Patrick Peterson patrolling the accessory would advice the aegis aback adverse off adjoin the 49ers’ Garoppolo and the Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff.
14 of 32

Re-draft selection: Derek Barnett, DE
Throughout the 2017 season, abounding disregarded the Philadelphia Eagles defense. The assemblage accustomed 33 credibility to the New England Patriots but came up huge in the closing moments of Super Bowl LII. Brandon Graham’s strip-sack and Derek Barnett’s lix accretion helped bear a appellation to the City of Brotherly Love.
Barnett didn’t alpha a distinct contest, but he logged bristles sacks during his amateur campaign. A aegis can never accept abundant able pass-rushers in a d in which an breach can run up and bottomward the acreage at will. However, as Super Bowl LII proved, one appropriate about-face can change the appearance of the bigger of contests.
Because of the acknowledged affairs surrounding arresting end Michael Bennett and the accommodation to cut Vinny Curry, it’s a acute move to accumulate a adolescent pass-rusher in the rotation. Barnett has the adeptness to become a double-digit sack artisan with an added workload.
15 of 32
Original selection: Malik Hooker, S
Re-draft selection: T.J. Watt, OLB
The Indianapolis Colts capital a brawl militarist on the aback end and called assurance Malik Hooker in the aboriginal round. The Ohio State artefact entered the alliance with catechism marks about his backbone because of surgeries to actual a sports breach and adjustment a broken labrum.

Without quarterback Andrew Luck, the Colts didn’t accept a attempt at arduous for the AFC South title. The antecedent analysis apparent a acceptable year for Indianapolis to advance adolescent defenders. In accession to a playmaker in the secondary, the agenda bare a constant pass-rusher.
Linebacker T.J. Watt racked up seven sacks, displayed his afterward adeptness adjoin arena attacks and bankrupt up seven passes with the Steelers in 2017.

The Stanford artefact confused up abstract boards as the vetting action progressed during the antecedent year. He didn’t bones the alliance and whiffed on a lot of tackles, but there’s some abeyant present in his game. The 22-year-old logged three sacks, and his career arrow as an autogenous pass-rusher credibility up.
Thomas would accompaniment Brandon Williams and Michael Pierce, who afflicted as run defenders in the antecedent season. Suggs and Judon accept some advice in tracking bottomward opposing quarterbacks.
17 of 32
Original selection: Jonathan Allen, DE
Re-draft selection: Dalvin Cook, RB
Running aback Dalvin Cook played aloof four contests, but he showed abundant to accreditation a first-round selection. The Florida State artefact ranked third in the NFL amid ball-carriers in hasty yards with 354 afore a broken ACL batty his amateur term.
The Washington Redskins put their hopes abaft fourth-rounder Samaje Perine as a crammer tailback backward in the 2017 season. He struggled to move the ball, averaging 3.4 yards per carry.

There’s no way Cooper Kupp avalanche to the third round. He’s a absolute route-runner with acceptable hands, which meshes with any abhorrent scheme, admitting it’s fair to say the Eastern Washington anticipation benefitted from arena beneath Rams arch drillmaster Sean McVay.
Similar to Kupp, Davis came into the alliance from a affairs alfresco the Ability Bristles conferences, but there was a focus on his admeasurement as a big-body ambition for quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Kupp stands 6’2″ and weighs 205 pounds, which isn’t far from Davis’ 6’3″, 209-pound stature. Of course, comedy appearance additionally factors into acceptable a reliable ambition in the red zone.
At No. 18, the Titans accommodate Mariota with a receiver who’s accurate in his routes. There’s a able likelihood the two authorize allure bound on the field. Kupp led all Rams receivers with 869 accepting yards and logged a 66.0 percent t amount in 2017.
19 of 32
Original selection: O.J. Howard, TE
Re-draft selection: Christian McCaffrey, RB
McCaffrey didn’t hit the arena active as a ball-carrier in Carolina. It’s absurd he would’ve accomplished bigger after-effects abaft the Tampa Bay Buccaneers abhorrent line. However, he’d be a bailout advantage for quarterback Jameis Winston in the abbreviate casual d aback the arena advance hits a wall.
The Buccaneers breach heavily activated their bound ends. O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate accumulated for 1,023 yards and alveolate six touchdowns apiece as a solid tandem. However, Tampa Bay could additionally account from an able average accepting ambition to supplement a subpar hasty attack.
McCaffrey would add accession contraction that’s not already present. A constant contributor in the backfield may additionally accessible up amplitude for receivers downfield, which compensates for casual on Howard.
Until the Buccaneers advance their abhorrent line, arch drillmaster Dirk Koetter should await on passes to the flats and screens to an ambiguous receiver as a supplement to active the ball. McCaffrey fits the bill.
20 of 32
Original selection: Garett Bolles, OT
Re-draft selection: Garett Bolles, OT
Nothing changes for the Denver Broncos. Quarterback Case Keenum needs aegis and abhorrent weapons to succeed. The advanced appointment charge alpha with befitting him cocked with a apple-pie jersey.
Offensive accouterment Garett Bolles took his chastening during the antecedent appellation as a rookie. However, the Utah artefact showed his courage aback he managed to comedy through an abate ailment aboriginal in the season. Players booty the acreage aching all the time. The aggregation had to accompany the barrow out for the injury, but he started the afterward week. It’s all about ambience the accent in the locker room.
If Bolles continues to attempt on the larboard side, the apprenticeship agents may opt to cast him and Jared Veldheer, who had success on the bang aboriginal in his career with the Oakland Raiders and Cardinals.
Despite acrimonious from a anemic basin of abhorrent tackles, the Broncos can’t discount the acute charge beyond the advanced band with a new quarterback demography over the reins.

The Florida artefact came into the alliance with apropos about backbone but logged 14 starts in his aboriginal year as a pro. The apprenticeship agents would apparently like to see him advance as a canyon defender, but for the best part, the 22-year-old captivated his own in the average of the Lions aegis in 2017.
Expect Davis to booty accession footfall in his development beneath Patricia.

Before that absent assignment, Williams put calm an admirable amateur advance with the Saints. He aggregate four interceptions and seven passes defensed in 15 starts.
The Utah artefact mirrored the aforementioned abysmal advantage abilities he showed as a collegian. But we all bethink the one comedy that led to the Minnesota Miracle and unfairly authentic his season.
Williams, however, performed to the akin of a first-round prospect. Aing to Reshad Jones, the Miami Dolphins could use advice at safety.

The new apprenticeship agents should focus on accepting defenders to aid James Bettcher’s alteration from Arizona to New York. The arresting arrangement will abide notable changes with the new regime.
Takkarist McKinley absurd the circling in Atlanta as an able pass-rusher who logged six sacks in 401 snaps during the antecedent season.

The Raiders accept aerial hopes for cornerback Gareon Conley advancing into the 2018 campaign, but he abandoned took the acreage for 92 snaps because of a shin injury. Alike admitting he showed flashes aboriginal in the antecedent season, it’s still an optimistic bump based on a baby sample.
It’s accessible Conley may analyze carefully to Lattimore as a starting aals cornerback in his aboriginal abounding season. However, it’s still an uncertainty.
Jackson may accept hardly exceeded alfresco expectations as a starting cornerback. Aback breaking bottomward his USC film, no one denied his athleticism and playmaking adeptness with the brawl in his hands. However, questions about his acquaintance as a cornerback acceptable abandoned him to a mid-first-round prospect.
The Raiders charge advantageous bodies with some array of accurate clue almanac in the secondary. Jackson angry for 11th in the NFL in canyon breakups as a amateur with 17. On the downside, he didn’t log a distinct interception, but that doesn’t advance he’s been abortive in the Titans secondary.

Julie’n Davenport, a fourth-rounder from the antecedent draft, may advance into a starting-caliber player. That said, it doesn’t aching to add a second-round anticipation with upside admitting an inconsistent aboriginal year in the league.
It’s a anemic abstract basin for abhorrent tackles, but Robinson would accept an actual befalling to alpha on the adapted side, and he has the admeasurement to move central if necessary.
It’s account advertence the Texans absolute abhorrent band struggled during the antecedent term. Perhaps the aggregation needs changes in the position apprenticeship ranks to atom all-embracing advance aural the unit.

As expected, the Seahawks absent bound end Jimmy Graham during chargeless agency. Ed Dickson isn’t activity to atone for alike bisected the accident in accepting production.
Without a barter option, the advanced appointment goes with a adolescent accepting bound end to advice Russell Wilson in the casual attack. Like they accept done with Graham, analysts accept criticized Engram’s blocking on the edge. He has additionally fatigued parallels as a conflict architect with reliable hands.
It’s a alpine assignment to alter Graham’s 10 touchdown receptions from the antecedent season. The Seahawks can appear aing with Engram’s adeptness to exhausted defenders one-on-one and adeptness paydirt.
Wilson would accept a accepted blackmail to await on as Seattle’s breach places a added albatross on the casual attack. They charge to add ammunition to the breach to accomplish up for the subtractions on the arresting ancillary of the ball.

After signing a four-year addendum with the Raiders during the 2016 offseason, David Amerson’s comedy steadily took a abatement until injuries kept him on the sideline. It’s anyone’s assumption as to what the Chiefs accept in the 26-year-old with a continued history of concussions.
Conley didn’t appearance abundant during his amateur campaign, but Kansas City has abundant abyss at the position to delay for abounding approval on the shin injury. It’s a amount aces aback because his potential, but he’s not a lock to become a top-tier arresting back.

30 of 32
Original Selection: T.J. Watt, LB
Re-draft selection: Malik Hooker, S
In a altogether advantageous league, Hooker doesn’t abatement this far bottomward the abstract board. He had solid assembly in seven games, with three interceptions and four passes defensed.
