Top Ten Mock Draft

As the day of days approaches, the mock draft will be expanded.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

1. Tennessee Titans: Jalen Ramsey, S, Florida St.

In the first stunning move of this draft season, the Dick Lebeau influenced Titans take the plunge and upgrade their defense with a cornerstone pick. Some might think this pick is out of the blue but Taylor Lewan held down the left side of the line nicely and the combination of Ramsey and say Jason Spriggs is better then Laremy Tunsil paired with whoever else not named Ramsey.

2. Cleveland Browns: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota St.

Wentz gets the edge over Goff as he is the quarterback with the most upside. The signing of Robert Griffin III leads to Hue Jackson deciding to take his time in developing a quarterback with higher upside. Wentz also gets the nod when size is concerned, sporting a frame reminiscent of Ben Roethlisburger's.

3. San Diego Chargers: Laremy Tunsil, LT, Ole Miss.

With perhaps the draft's most shoe in pick, the Chargers find themselves gifted with who some critics call the best tackle prospect in ten years. The pick answers the issue that has been plaguing the left side of their line ever since the departure of Marcus McNeill. Tunis offers stability in pass protection and unparalleled athleticism to get to the second level.

4. Dallas Cowboys: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

Joey Bosa would have been the pick if not for reports the Cowboys were "not in love" with him. Jack is a perfect fit for Rod Marinelli's defense and would give the Cowboys a linebacking corp similar to the Carolina Panthers. He helps the secondary as well as the front seven, as his coverage ability is second to none.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio St.

Bosa falls to the Jaguars, a team that is desperate for pass rush. Paring him with Malik \jackson inside and Dante Fowler outside gives the Jaguars three players who can bring the heat. The jaguars employ stunts in staggering amounts. This trio could become one of the best in the league. Playmaker would now riddle the defense.

6. Baltimore Ravens: Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio St.

The second surprise comes as the Ravens pick the best running back in the class. Elliott will have a bigger impact then DeForest Buckner, and with the addition of Mike Wallace, gives the Ravens what would be one of the most explosive offences in the league, barring recoveries going according to plan. Elliott is amore complete back then Todd Gurley was coming out of Georgia. It is a classic best player available pick.

7. San Francisco 49ers: Jared Goff, QB, California

Chip Kelly gets an accurate quarterback who can throw with anticipation. Goff would stay in northern California and try to revitalize the storied franchise. The niners do need to add weapons.

8. Philadelphia Eagles: Vernon Hargreavs III, CB, Florida

The Eagles start to rebuild the cornerback group with the playmaking corner out of Florida. Hargreaves will probably be at his best in off-man coverage but his ball skills and his hands will remind eagles fans of Asante Samuel. The Eagles will probably look to boost their secondary even further in later rounds.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson

Lawson fits the Bucs like a hand in a glove. He'll be able to play the seven technique in their 4-3 defense, where he won't be forced to bend the corner from wider angles. Lawson will infuse the Bucs defense with energy, as he is possesses an outsanding motor.

10 New York Giants: Ronnie Stanley, LT, Notre Dame

Stanley's pick would move Ereck Floweres to right tackle where he belongs. The Giants would solidify what has been an issue for years in New York. He does not play with the desired aggression but his quick feet and good hand placement will allow him to protect the blind side with adequacy.
