With all the of pro days complete and a trade between the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens executed, it’s time to take another look at how the NFL Draft may shake out later this month.
Eighteen picks have changed since Mock Draft 2.0, while 14 have remained the same.
1. Cleveland Browns
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
The next mock draft that has the Browns taking someone other than Garrett here will be the first.
2. San Francisco 49ers
Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
The closer it gets to draft day the more tempted the 49ers will be to reach for a quarterback, but they’ll resist and do the smart thing.
3. Chicago Bears
Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama
Like the 49ers, the Bears need a quarterback, but Allen is too good to pass up.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
The Jaguars have spent the last few years devoting a lot of money to their defense. It’s time they add some pieces around quarterback Blake Bortles.

5. Tennessee Titans
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
The Titans need secondary help, but Marcus Mariota needs a No. 1 receiver more.
6. New York Jets
Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
The Jets are another team desperate for a quarterback, but a cover safety like Hooker has even greater value when you’re in a division with Tom Brady.
7. Los Angeles Chargers
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
Back-to-back Buckeyes, both in terms of this draft and the last two first round picks for the Chargers, who took Joey Bosa third overall in 2016.
8. Carolina Panthers
Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee
Julius Peppers in back in Carolina, but he’s also 37 years old. He’ll be a tremendous mentor for Barnett.
9. Cincinnati Bengals
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
Even if two other possible targets listed above in Williams and Barnett are still on the board, Foster makes more sense for the Bengals.

10. Buffalo Bills
Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Not many mocks have Adams falling this far, but it’s more a result of teams above them drafting needs rather than best player available, which Adams arguably will be once Garrett and Thomas are gone.
11. New Orleans Saints
Haason Reddick, LB, Temple
After raising eyebrows at the Senior Bowl and dropping jaws at the Combine, Reddick is shooting up a lot of draft boards.
12. Cleveland Browns
Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
Best-case scenario comes to fruition for the Browns as they get the best prospect in the draft and take the first quarterback off the board.

13. Arizona Cardinals
DeShaun Watson, QB, Clemson
Carson Palmer is 37, and would be a great mentor for Watson as part of a succession plan.
14. Philadelphia Eagles
Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
Conley is an ideal replacement for Nolan Carroll, whom the Eagles let leave in free agency.
15. Indianapolis Colts
Takkarist McKinley, LB, UCLA
Protecting Andrew Luck is a priority, just not a top one, especially this year with a thin class of offensive linemen.
16. Baltimore Ravens
Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
Taking Breshad Perriman in the first round in 2015 has yet to pay off for the Ravens, so they again to find a No. 1 receiver for Joe Flacco.
17. Washington Redskins
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
The Redskins have a lot of holes on defense, and most mocks have them going in that direction, but Jay Gruden will love to get his hands on a versatile weapon like McCaffrey.
18. Tennessee Titans
Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU
There is more value at corner midway through the first round than at receiver, and the risk of taking Williams so high at No. 5 pays off here.
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
Pairing Howard with DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans could vault Jameis Winston into the MVP conversation this year.

20. Denver Broncos
Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
If you’re going to face Khalil Mack twice a year, especially after giving up 40 sacks last year.
21. Detroit Lions
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan
The Lions fill their biggest need with a player who is sure to be a fan favorite with great pass-rushing skills to go along with his unique name and UM roots.
22. Miami Dolphins
Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky
The first first-round pick in WKU history fills a need on the line with last year’s first-round pick, guard Laremy Tunsil, expected to move to tackle.

23. New York Giants
Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama
After spending all that money on the defense last offseason, it’s time for the Giants to fortify a leaky offensive line.
24. Oakland Raiders
Kevin King, CB, Washington
Imagine the marketing possibilities when the King moves to Las Vegas.
25. Houston Texans
Pat Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech
With Tony Romo headed to the broadcast booth, this is the next best way for the Texans to fill that glaring hole at the most important position on the field.
26. Seattle Seahawks
Garett Bolles, T, Utah
Bolles is just what the Seahawks need to start rebuilding one of the worst offensive lines in the league.
27. Kansas City Chiefs
Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina
The Chiefs need another receiver, and no one made a stronger impression at the Senior Bowl, and Jones followed it up by running a 4.46 40-yard dash at the Combine.
28. Dallas Cowboys
Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan
The Cowboys secondary had mass defections in free agency. And while there is still a question as to whether Peppers is a linebacker or safety, Dallas seems like a good landing spot for him.
29. Green Bay Packers
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
The Packers desperately need a running back with their current starter being converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery.
30. Pittsburgh Steelers
T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin
Watt not only has a knack for getting to the quarterback, he’s versatile enough to play inside, which will make him a great fit in Keith Butler’s scheme.
31. Atlanta Falcons
Charles Harris, DE, Missouri
The Falcons certainly could have used another pass rusher in Super Bowl LI.
32. New Orleans Saints
Budda Baker, S, Washington
A team in desperate need of defensive playmakers gets another one to add to Reddick.
