2017 NFL Mock Draft 11.0: Round 1, 2 And 3 Projections With Trades - Rounds 3 And 4

This is round three of my 2017 NFL mock draft. The first round is here and round two is here


65. Browns: Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State
Here's a dynamic weapon for the Browns offense. Samuel is a Percy Harvin type, who can play some RB but will mostly be a slot WR. It's a great fit and Samuel could go in Round 2. 

66. 49ers: Tyus Bowser, EDGE, Houston
The 49ers need more passing rush help. Bowser should be a solid LEO and he could sneak into the second round. There's been some first round buzz, but I don't buy that.  

67. Seahawks (via Bears*): Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
Why not two corners? Witherspoon fits what Seattle likes and he gives them added help while Shead is hurt and if Richard Sherman leaves.

68. Jaguars: Dion Dawkins, OL, Temple
It's not great value, but Dawkins fills a need. He can start off at guard and maybe play tackle when Braden Albert leaves. 

69. Rams: Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech
The Rams need more weapons for Jared Goff and Hodges could be a great one. I love him and he'd be an upgrade over Lance Kendricks. Tyler Higbee is on the roster, but Hodges has more upside. 

70. Jets: Zay Jones, WR, ECU
Jones is a potential round two pick. With Brandon Marshall gone, the Jets could use another WR. 

71. Chargers: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
Travis Benjamin wasn't great and the Chargers could use another WR. I think a round 3 run on WRs is likely, but Kupp and several others could go in Round 2. He's a Percy Harvin type, who could play some third down back for the Chargers. 

72. Patriots (from Panthers): Ryan Anderson, EDGE, Alabama
Here's a much-needed edge rusher for the Patriots. He's versatile enough to fit the Pats.   

73. Bengals: Ethan Pocic, OL, LSU
Pocic could play guard or center, both of which the Bengals need. 

74. Ravens (from Eagles): Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
Even with Brandon Carr on the roster, more CB help is needed. If it wasn't for a terrible 40 time, Tabor could be a first round pick. But after posting some of the worst numbers among corners, Tabor will slide. But, he has great ball skills and did claim he had a hamstring injury.

75. Bills: Cam Sutton, CB, Tennessee 
The Bills really need corner help. Sutton is the top one left on the board. 

76. Saints: Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia
I can easily see the Saints grabbing two corners. A LB is also an option, but Douglas has solid value. 

77. Cardinals: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC
The Cardinals won't have Larry Fitzgerald forever. Here's a big-bodied possession receiver to take his place. Smith-Schuster's lack of speed could cause him to fall. 

78. Ravens: Anthony Walker, LB, Northwestern
It's a bit early for Walker, but the top ILBs are gone and the Ravens need another with Zach Orr's retirement. 

79. Vikings: Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn
Sharrif Floyd's future is up in the air because of a knee issue. Adams, who could go in round two, can replace him. 

80. Colts: Tarell Basham, EDGE, Ohio
The Colts aren't done upgrading their pass rushers. Basham could go earlier than this and should be a fit as a 3-4 OLB, 

81. Redskins: Dawuane Smoot, EDGE, Illinois
Trent Murphy picked up a four-game suspension for PEDs (and he'll be a free agent after next year) and Junior Gallette got arrested again. Smoot can be a future replacement for Murphy. 

82. Broncos: Carlos Henderson, WR, La Tech
This is great value for Denver, as Henderson could sneak into the late second. He won't be a No. 1 option, but he could become a No. 2. For the time being, he'll be an upgrade as the Broncos' No. 3 option.

83. Titans: Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State
Why not two WRs for the Titans? Godwin and Ross would be two quality options for Marcus Mariota.  

84. Bucs: Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo
This is near the top of Hunt's range, but he's a good runner. With Doug Martin a major question mark, the Bucs will look for another RB. 

85. Lions: Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan
There isn't a linebacker worth taking, which is the Lions' top need. But, Lewis is a perfect fit as a slot corner for the Lions. His major concern is a domestic violence arrest. Without it, he probably goes in round two. 

86. Vikings (from Dolphins): Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson
The Vikings like using two tight ends and Leggett can be that. With Rhett Ellison gone and the Vikings having two 3rds in an amazing TE class, don't be surprised if they pull the trigger. 

87. Giants: Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
Johnanthan Hankins isn't coming back? Here's a replacement. The Giants could look for another DT even earlier than this. 

88. Raiders: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama
There's still no linebacker worth taking, which hurts the Raiders. But, Jackson could pair with Karl Joseph to form a dynamic safety duo.

89. Texans: Derek Rivers, EDGE, Youngstown State
John Simon went to the Colts. Here's his replacement. 

90. Seahawks: Carroll Phillips, EDGE, Illinois
If the Seahawks are looking for extra edge rusher depth, Phillips makes sense. The Seahawks don't have a ton of needs, so they could target the best player or trade down. 

91. Chiefs: Chad Hansen, WR, Cal
Will Chris Conley take a step forward? Here's some insurance if not. Hansen could be a quality No. 2 WR in the NFL. This year's WR class is full of them. 

92. Cowboys: Justin Evans, S, Texas A&M
The Cowboys get lucky and they snag the top safety left. Evans could start early for the Cowboys. I don't buy the first round buzz around Evans, but he could go in Round 2. 

93. Packers: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida
Ty Montgomery might not be a true feature back, but Mack can help shoulder the load. He's a talented runner and fits what the Packers look for at RB. 

94. Steelers: Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan
The Steelers are looking for a WR early, and this is the right range for Darboh.

95. Falcons: Tanoh Kpassagnon, DL, Villanova
Here's some more defensive help for the Falcons. A great size-speed combo, Kpassagnon could be a key part of the Falcons defensive line long-term, but he reminds me of Margus Hunt. 

96. Patriots: Corn Elder, CB, Miami (FL)
Here's a future nickel corner for the Pats. If Malcolm Butler is moved, corner is near the top of the needs list. 

97. Dolphins (Compensatory Pick*): Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama
Julius Thomas won't be in Miami forever. Here's his eventual replacement. 

98. Panthers*: Taylor Moton, OT, Western Michigan
There's a real chance a poor OT class drives Moton up higher. But if he lasts, he's a fit. The Panthers still need OL help. 

99. Eagles* (via Ravens): DeMarcus Walker, EDGE, Florida State
With Connor Barwin gone, the Eagles need more young depth. Adding a WR or another CB could be an option here too. 

100. Titans* (from Rams): Marcus Maye, S, Florida
The Titans continue the secondary overhaul. 

101. Broncos*: Dalvin Tomlinson, DL, Alabama
Tomlinson is a younger, and potentially better, player than Domata Peko. He could help upgrade the Broncos run defense in a few years. 

102. Bears (via Seahawks*): Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
A poor Combine helped hurt Ford's stock. But this is solid value and he could help replace Alshon Jeffery. Remember, this is part of the early Bears-Seahawks trade.

103. Saints* (from Pats via Browns): Larry Ogunjobi, DL, Charlotte 
More defensive line help doesn't hurt. Plus, Ogunjobi could go before this.

104. Chiefs*: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson
Jamaal Charles is gone and the Chiefs need more RB help. 

105. Steelers*: Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland
Big Ben loves big targets and they don't get much bigger than Shaheen. LaDarius Green has yet to make an impact. Although Shaheen is raw, he has great upside. 

106. Seahawks*: Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
Would anyone fault the Seahawks for taking two OL players? Davenport is raw, but has upside. That's how Seattle likes its linemen. 

107. Jets*: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
Much like Moton, a poor OT class could push Johnson up. The Jets need OT help, especially if Brandon Shell doesn't pan out. 


One note on round four: I won't be doing explanations for each pick, just the picks themselves. 

108. Browns: Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State

109. 49ers: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston

110. Jags: Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington

111. Bears: Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh

112. Rams: Eddie Vanderdoes, DL, UCLA

113. Chargers: Isaac Asiata, OG, Utah
