The NFL Draft is in the books and it is time to rank my top three draft classes.
John Lynch's first draft was a success. He landed two of the top 10 players in the draft with Reuben Foster and Solomon Thomas. Somehow he managed to get the Bears to give him extra picks to move back one spot and still land his guy.
Round 1: Pick 3 - Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford
Round 1: Pick 31 - Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
Round 3: No. 66 overall - Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
Round 3: No. 104 overall - C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa
Round 4: No. 121 overall - Joe Williams, RB, Utah
Round 5: No. 146 overall - George Kittle, TE, Iowa
Round 5: No. 177 overall - Trent Taylor, WR, Louisiana Tech
Round 6: No. 198 overall - D.J. Jones, DL, Ole Miss
Round 6: No. 202 overall - Pita Taumoepenu, DL, Utah
Round 7: No. 229 overall - Adrian Colbert, S, Miami
Again another draft centered around trading back to land the guys that they want. The Browns moved back from 12 to 25 and still grabbed Peppers out of Michigan. They also traded back up into the first round to get David Njoku who will be a stud at tight end. The Browns also landed the best player in the draft in Myles Garrett. The most underrated pick is getting Kizer in the second round as he was projected to go number one overall just a year ago.
Round 1, Pick 1: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Round 1, Pick 25: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan
Round 1, Pick 29: David Njoku, TE, Miami
Round 2, Pick 52: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
Round 3, Pick 65: Larry Ogunjobi, DT, Charlotte
Round 4, Pick 126: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston
Round 5, Pick 160: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
Round 6, Pick 185: Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida
Round 7, Pick 224: Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State
Round 7, Pick 252: Matthew Dayes, RB, NC State
This was really a draft where they were able to get a bunch of talent that shouldn't have been on the board at their pick. Getting J.J Watt's younger brother could be the steal of the draft if not for the Steelers getting Josh Dobbs later in the draft. Dobbs could prove to be the best QB in this draft simply because he can sit for a couple years and learn behind Big Ben.
Round 1, No. 30 overall:TJ Watt, OLB, Wisconsin
Round 2 No.62 :JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, 6-1, 215, Southern Cal
Round 3, No. 94: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee
Round 3, No. 105: James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh
Round 4, No. 135: Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee
Round 5, No. 173: Brian Allen CB, Utah
Round 6, No. 213: Colin Holba, LS, Louisville
Round 7, No. 248: Keion Adams, LB, Western Michigan
