Reller NFL Mock Draft 1.0

2 of 3

11. Minnesota Vikings

player. 60. The Vikings need to get Teddy Bridgewater some toys to play with and wouldn’t you know, his favorite college target is available here. Parker is the third best receiver in the draft and has primary receiver talent. He is an insane athlete and a big target at 6-3 and 209 pounds. Parker gives the Vikings another cornerstone in their offense and the fact that he’ll mesh well with Bridgewater is just icing on the cake.. Wide Receiver. Louisville. DeVante Parker. 11

12. Cleveland Browns

The Browns had one of the worst run defenses in the NFL last season (31st in efficiency). Shelton is the best true defensive tackle in the draft and is a monster in the middle at 6-2 and 339 pounds. He’s great against the run, and will generally demand a double team. He also has the potential to be a good pass rusher but is still developing his skills in this area. This will address a clear need for the Browns and give them a talented player for years to come.. Defensive Tackle. Washington. Danny Shelton. 12. player. 53

13. New Orleans Saints

Oregon. Arik Armstead. 13. player. 15. The Saints need help at just about every defensive position as they rated 31st in efficiency on this side of the ball. The Saints go with the best available defensive player in Armstead here. He’s a natural fit in a 3-4 defense and excels at stopping the run with impunity (despite what the National Championship game would have you believe). Armstead shows an ability to be a good pass rusher but his production isn’t there, regardless he should help the Saints defense.. Defensive End

14. Miami Dolphins

Wide Receiver. UCF. Breshad Perriman. 14. player. 59. The Dolphins have addressed a number of needs in free agency and will likely have a lot of options available with the 14th pick. They go with Perriman to replace Mike Wallace’s deep play ability. The Dolphins will hope that his improving ball skills haven’t peaked and that he can make the routine receptions in the NFL. Perriman has the potential to be a very talented receiver, as long as Ryan Tannehill can get him the ball regularly.

15. San Francisco 49ers

Michigan State. Trae Waynes. 15. player. 42. The 49ers have seen their team fall apart in multiple ways this offseason and now need help across the defensive side of the ball. Among those defensive needs, cornerback stands out as they’ve needed to address this position for years. They take Waynes who will be able to start as soon as he hits the field. He has everything you want out of a starting corner and is even solid against the run.. Cornerback

16. Houston Texans

10. The Texans could go in a number of directions with this pick. While they have DeAndre Hopkins and added Cecil Shorts, they could use a big target to replace Andre Johnson. Green-Beckham is a freak at 6-5 and with a 4.39 40-yard time. His talent is undeniable, but he has plenty of red flags off the field (marijuana related issues, dimissed from Missouri last summer, didn’t play in 2014). He is the definition of a high risk, high reward player.. Wide Receiver. Missouri. Dorial Green-Beckham. 16. player

17. San Diego Chargers

Running Back. Georgia. Todd Gurley. 17. player. 13. Gurley would be a top 10 pick if it weren’t for the torn ACL. He is an unreal talent who can score every time he touches the ball. The Chargers really struggled to run the ball and with Ryan Matthews moving on, they need a primary back. If he can stay healthy, Gurley could give the Chargers the balance on offense they haven’t had since LaDainian Tomlinson was on the roster. 

18. Kansas City Chiefs

18. player. 124. The Chiefs have needs all over the field, but the offensive line really needs to be addressed. They lost their best player on the line, Rodney Hudson, to free agency and Erving can come in and take the center spot or help elsewhere. The Chiefs could also look at this draft and take the best available player and he’ll be a solid addition to the roster.. Center. Florida State. Cameron Erving

19. Cleveland Browns

Ima Player. 19. player. 53. After addressing the run game a few picks earlier, the Browns need to get either a wide receiver or offensive lineman. With a deep group of receivers that will last till second round, the Browns snag Peat to add bookend protection to whoever ends up starting at quarterback for the team.. Positioned. International

20. Philadelphia Eagles

20. player. 54. The Eagles lost Nate Allen to free agency and have a clear need for a safety just like Collins. He’s a natural fit for Chip Kelly’s defense and will take over a starting role with ease. With the weak safety draft its possible that Collins has been overvalued, but there is no denying he’s talented with the potential to be great.. Strong Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins
