Predicting Where the Top Offensive Draft Prospects Land


The draft is almost here, where will all these talented young players end up?


Mitchell Tribusky: Browns, 5th overall (trade up)

Any football fan knows that the Browns lack a good quarterback. They have been rumored in Tribusky so I think they’ll find a way to get him.

Deshaun Watson: Giants, 23rd overall

The Giants aren’t a team with a ton of needs, they have the luxury of solely focusing to address who their future QB will be, Eli Manning won’t be around forever.

Patrick Mahomes: Chiefs, 27th overall

The Chiefs may be a consistent playoff team but they won’t win a Superbowl with Alex Smith over conservative play style. Mahomes wouldn’t replace him right away, but down the line, the Texas Tech gunslinger could be special with Andy Reid guiding him along the way.

DeShone Kizer: Texans, 25th overall

The Texans have a good running back, solid receivers, and a great defense. They need a quarterback, they will look at Kizer because he’s more ready to start in the NFL than Patrick Mahomes is.


Running Backs:

Leonard Fournette: Jaguars, 4th overall.

The Jaguars addressed their defense during last year’s offseason and during this year’s free agency period, adding yet another young defensive player is tempting for them, but adding Fournette would greatly help the currently struggling Jaguars offense.

Christian Mccaffrey: Panthers, 8th overall

The Panthers have been rumored in being interested in taking a running back with this pick, I think they’ll take do it all running back Christian McCaffrey and give Cam Newton some help.

Dalvin Cook: Buccaneers, 19th overall

Doug Martin has had under 500 rushing yards three of the past four seasons, the Buccaneers could use a new running back. With Fournette and Mccaffrey off the board, they will look at Dalvin Cook and pair him with his former FSU teammate Jameis Winston.


Wide Receiver:

Mike Williams: Bills, 10th overall

Other than Sammy Watkins what consistent reliable receivers do the Bills have? None. They’ll be very interested in Williams and make a Clemson duo between Sammy Watkins and him.

Corey Davis: Titans, 12th overall (trade down)

The Titans already have their QB for the future, a very good running game and offensive line, a good tight end, what’s missing? A true #1 receiver. It would be very surprising if they didn’t pick a WR with one of their two first round picks.


Tight end:

OJ Howard: Cardinals, 13th overall

OJ Howard is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenders and a very good blocker. Other than David Johnson and an aging Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals don’t really have any offensive weapons that jump out at you. They will be tempted to take a QB here to later replace Carson Palmer, but OJ Howard is a stud, he probably deserves to be drafted before this.
