Weekly Spiral’s Mock Draft

In case you didn’t listen to our podcast this past week, here are the results of our dueling mock draft. With just a week and a half away from the draft, it’s becoming clearer as to what teams are focusing on and who they might target.

Link to the episode:

  1. Bengals- Joe Burrow, QB LSU

Slam dunk pick here as the Bengals get their new face of the franchise

  1. Redskins- Chase Young, EDGE Ohio State

Another easy pick here as the Redskins can draft the best prospect in this class

  1. Lions- Jeff Okudah, CB Ohio State

Okudah is a lockdown corner who will be one of the best in the league sooner rather than later

  1. Giants- Tristan Wirfs, OT Iowa

The Giants continue to build around Saquon by getting an athletic lineman who can step in and contribute at a high level immediately

  1. Dolphins- Tua Tagovailoa, QB Alabama

#Tank4Tua was the slogan all year and it works out in this scenario

  1. Chargers- Justin Herbert, QB Oregon

A bit of a wildcard, Herbert has a high ceiling that the Chargers are willing to take a chance on

  1. Panthers- Derrick Brown, DL Auburn

Panthers get a DT to continue to strengthen their defensive line during this rebuild

  1. Cardinals- Mekhi Becton, OT Louisville

In order to protect Kyler Murray, Cardinals need to start protecting him

  1. Jaguars- Isaiah Simmons, LB/S Clemson

Jaguars need to build back up a defense that not too long ago was the best in the league and Simmons is a rare talent

  1. Browns- Jedrick Wills, OT Alabama

Wills is a rock-steady tackle that can play on the left or right side which is exactly what the Browns need

  1. Jets- Jerry Jeudy, WR Alabama

Darnold desperately needs receivers and Jeudy is the crown jewel of a deep receiver class

  1. Raiders- Henry Ruggs, WR Alabama

Nobody values speed more than the Raiders and nobody in this class is faster than Ruggs. This makes too much sense. 

  1. 49ers (via Colts)- CeeDee Lamb, WR Oklahoma

Lamb is a complete receiver that Shanahan would covet in his system

  1. Buccaneers- Andrew Thomas, OT Georgia

As the Bucs look to quickly build a title contender, getting Thomas will go a long ways to protecting Brady

  1. Broncos- CJ Henderson, CB Florida

Broncos need a receiver but get a corner that Fagio can build his secondary around after trading Chris Harris, Jr

  1. Falcons- Javon Kinlaw, DL South Carolina

A Kinlaw-Jarrett-Fowler Jr. defensive line? More like Sacklanta, am I right?

  1. Cowboys- K’ Lauvon Chaisson, EDGE LSU

Cowboys need another bookend pass rusher that they can consistently rely on and Chaisson is that guy

  1. Dolphins (via Steelers)- Josh Jones, OT Houston

Bit of a reach here but the Dolphins need offensive line help in a major way

  1. Raiders (via Bears)- Kenneth Murray, LB Oklahoma

Murray will be a tackling machine at the next level and can become a key piece in the middle of the Raider defense

  1. Jaguars (via Rams)- Kristian Fulton, CB LSU

After losing Jalen Ramsey, Fulton brings back that attitude in the secondary

  1. Eagles- Justin Jefferson, WR LSU

The Eagles receiver production last year can be classified at best as poor and adding a player of Jefferson’s caliber changes that

  1. Vikings (via Bills)- Tee Higgins, WR Clemson

As one receiver exits, another enters in Minnesota

  1. Patriots- Jordan Love, QB Utah State

Do the Patriots believe in Stidham? We’ll find out with this pick

  1. Saints- Laviska Shenault, WR Colorado

Sean Payton loves versatile players and Shenault can utilize in a few ways

  1. Vikings- Yetur Gross- Matos, EDGE Penn State

After losing Everson Griffen, Vikings need a pass rush

  1. Dolphins (via Texans)- Antoine Winfield, Jr., S Minnesota

As Brian Flores continues to build his defense, he finds his ball hawk safety

  1. Seahawks- AJ Epenesa, DL Iowa

Once a highly-touted prospect, Epenesa fits perfectly along the Seahawks line

  1. Ravens- Patrick Queen, LB LSU

Ravens have one weakness, middle linebacker. Queen solves that

  1. Titans- Austin Jackson, OT USC

After losing Jack Conklin, Jackson can take over the reins at right tackle before moving to the left side

  1. Packers- KJ Hamler, WR Penn State

The reincarnation of Randall Cobb will make Rodgers a happy customer

  1. 49ers- Trevon Diggs, CB Alabama

A developmental corner that can spend a season learning from Richard Sherman before stepping in to start in two years

  1. Chiefs- Jeff Gladney, CB TCU

Gladney is a versatile corner that the Chiefs will need to step in and play right away
