NFL Mock Draft 1.0 Part 4

#16 Atlanta Falcons- Jedrick Wills OT, Alabama

Although there are a lot of rumors that the Falcons will be trading up, I have them drafting offensive lineman Jedrick Wills who fell a bit in this mock. He’s a very good run blocker so helping Todd Gurley run the ball with his god-awful knees would and should be a priority for the Falcons. He’s one of the top tackles and the draft’s top right tackle but can play either tackle position. One of the only possible negatives would be that he’s standing at 6’ 3” compared to Mekhi Becton’s 6’ 7” frame. Watch for the Falcons to pick earlier than this.

#17 Dallas Cowboys- C.J. Henderson CB, Florida

The Cowboys need to replace Byron Jones and C.J. Henderson is the natural fix. I’m a lot higher on Henderson and think the gap between him and Jeffery Okudah is a lot smaller than others. Henderson is a rapid corner that can be a #1 corner on any team if given the opportunity. Although he had no interceptions all season, he had a lot of deflections and played well in every game except LSU, but who wasn’t torched by Burrow? Cowboys will save a lot of money by drafting Henderson and they can spend that money on Dak Prescott’s new deal.

#18 Miami Dolphins- Javon Kinlaw DL, South Carolina

After selecting a quarterback with their first pick, Kinlaw is the best available and he is an absolute monster as shown in his workout video squatting one TON, 2,000 pounds!  Brian Flores and the Dolphins opened up the bank and spent millions of dollars on the defensive side of the ball and Kinlaw would be a stellar addition. With the stockpile of draft picks, the Dolphins are setting themselves up for success as they could add five studs in the first two rounds. The Dolphins will be one of the hardest teams to predict as they can go in any direction due to their many holes and many picks to fill those holes.

#19 Las Vegas Raiders- Kristian Fulton CB, LSU

One of the Khalil Mack picks, the Raiders should look too sure up their defensive holes after picking with an offensive mind with their own selection. Fulton starts off the rest of the corners where the likes of Kristian Fulton, Noah Igbinoghene, and Jeff Gladney, are all around the same skill level for me. I like Fulton’s ability to show up in big games and for his tackling ability. His high in tackles came against Clemson in the title game so he’s not afraid of the spotlight. With a lot of these LSU players, the scheme could be a major reason for their successes, so you always have to be careful, but in this spot, I think Fulton’s a corner with a very high ceiling but has bust potential. 

#20 Jacksonville Jaguars- Antoine Winfield Jr. S/CB, Minnesota

The Jaguars have glaring holes all over the field, so I have the Jags selecting the best available in my opinion, Antoine Winfield Jr. A lot of things will change for the Jags as the inevitable trade of Yannick Ngakoue for some draft capital. I have no idea what the market will be, so I have the Jags selecting a player that fills two needs, safety and corner. Antoine can play slot corner as well as safety and his positional flexibility will be what makes him go over Alabama’s Xavier McKinney in my opinion. The Jags are another team that could quite possibly select any position outside of long snapper, punter, and kicker with their two first round picks, hopefully they can get something with this pick they got from L.A. after trading away Pro-Bowl corner Jalen Ramsey.
