Well, here it goes. After watching highlights of Deshone Kizer and others I finally have something to write about with trades for an every team mock draft. Whenever I put a $ it means that the team drafting traded for the pick.

Why I predicted those trades and picks. Well let’s start with the Cam Newton trade. The Panthers don’t want Cam Newton as much as they want a passer, Deshaun Watson is the running version of Drew Brees. The Jaguars need a good QB and Blake Bortles is a backup.
Now for the Steelers trades. I know, center is not a position that hands out great players and Pouncey is probably the best center in the league, but if you want good players you need to trade good players. And Myles Garrett and John Ross are great players, William Gay is a good player but now is the time to start restarting the Cornerbacks and getting new players. Now why trade Bud Dupree, Robert Golden, and their 3rd round compensatory and why would the Saints accept. The Saints desperately need a Linebacker and they could use the safety. As for the 3rd round compensatory pick, it adds much more than you think. The Saints already have two 3rd round picks, so adding another would make them dominate the 3rd round (which is better than most people think). Now here’s why the Steelers must draft Bishard Baker with the 11th pick. The Steelers need another safety. Baker has the right size, lockdown coverage, ball skills, blitz ability, zone coverage, and hit power for a great Steelers safety. John Ross as most of you know, has the 40yard dash record. Being that the Steelers need another fast WR John Ross is not a bad pick.
Well, now that the Bears released Jay Cutler they’re going to need to find a QB. Trading Jordan Howard is not a bad idea being that Dalvin Cook is in the draft, thus allowing the Bears to draft a QB. The 49ers need every position but getting a running back is something that should probably be down now. To me it’s a good trade and that’s it.
THANK YOU FOR READING THIS MOCK DRAFT.
