NFL Draft 2017: Ranking the 15 best draft sleepers since 2010

22 April 2017

That, however, is for a couple of reasons. But an argument can be made for the 49ers needing traditional 4-3 defensive ends to help transition to their new defense. The draft is deep in several of those positions, but is considered thin at OT.

In what perhaps will be Mel Kiper's last or second-to-last mock of the 2017 National Football League draft, the ESPN draft analyst made picks based on who would be the pick to give teams an "A" grade for the draft.

And therein lies the core problem with mock drafts.

When his hype was at it's peak, pundits mocked Watson to the Cleveland Browns with the first overall pick as a surefire franchise quarterback.

However, as per Chat Sports reports, the three organizations most likely to acquire the 5-foot-11, 202-pound rusher are the Philadelphia Eagles who now hold the No. 14 overall draft pick, the Baltimore Ravens with No. 16, and the Washington Redskins at 17th position as they are the clubs in current need of a young weapon at running back position.

In the US , meanwhile, lawmakers introduced bicameral legislation this month aimed at reining in Washington's own pot prohibition. The legislation also imposes tough new penalties of up to 14 years in prison for people giving or selling marijuana to children.

Kiper hasn't given up on the Bucs using an early-round draft pick on a tight end. "Put him in the rotation with Perry and Clay Matthews, and let them pile up the sacks and QB hurries". Curtis Samuel has been a popular name paired to the Saints, but his draft projection is all over the board.

"First, [the Eagles are] in great hands", he said.

This may be the most interesting draft scenario I have seen thus far. Lattimore would be a huge upgrade over what they have at cornerback right now. He's coming out of Alabama. I have to mentally, emotionally, and psychologically prepare myself for the event and with nine days time you are in luck. And if I'm sitting there are three, like Chicago, or at four, like the Jaguars, and my medical staff said, 'Hey, we're good, ' I think he'd be a good pick. And is he someone the Eagles would even want based on their medical [staff]? The character concerns, the off the field stuff.

I don't know if I'd give this draft an "A", but I certainly wouldn't be upset about it. And throw in Leonard Fournette at sixth. "And at what point are they worth taking a chance on?"

Those looking for an offensive lineman in that grouping should be a bit discouraged.

Residents of Madaya and Zabadani, formerly summer resorts, joined the 2011 uprising against President Bashar Assad. In footage aired on Syrian TV, bodies, including fighters, were seen lying alongside charred and destroyed buses.

Free-agent signing Quintin Demps turned 32 in June, so don't be surprised if Chicago looks to get younger at safety in the draft.

I understand Kiper is just connecting the dots here. Finding a trade partner is the hard part. McCaffrey showed he can carry the load as a full-time running back at Stanford, but his ability in space is what makes him exciting.

Obviously, I don't know what Kiper's entire "Big Board" looks like to know where he has every single player ranked, but to say that there aren't any offensive linemen left on his board at 48 is a unusual declaration, in my opinion. Cook is another prospect who has dropped a little. While Ramcyzk would have been my preference, Cam is a close second, and many have him rated higher. There are other running backs who could come out and be the best out of this class in a few years.

McShay's selection for the Miami Dolphins with the 22nd overall pick was Forrest Lamp, the Western Kentucky guard. Cam Robinson has the upside, but has to develop better balance.
