2. San Francisco 49ers   Jamal Adams, S, LSU

San Francisco is in dire need of a quarterback, but they’ll play it safe by drafting a sure thing in, Adams.

Lattimore is a pick that should be able to stabilize the Bears shaky secondary. Malik Hooker would be a great pick here too.

4.Jacksonville Jaguars  Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

It’s about time Jacksonville gets Blake Bortles some help in the backfield.

5.Tennessee Titans SolomonThomas, DE, Stanford

Sans trade, the Titans will nab a blue chip edge rusher here.

6.New York Jets MalikHooker, S, Ohio State

The Jets pass defense allowed 244 yards per game (16th), 30 passing touchdowns (25th), and 98.5 passer rating (30th) while forcing only eight interceptions (29th) in 2016.  They take Malik Hooker here all day.

7. Los Angeles Chargers Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

Mike Williams will be a consistent go-to option for Phillip Rivers IF they don’t trade down and acquire more picks.

8. Carolina Panthers  Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

Panthers will take off some pressure on Cam Newton by adding another dynamic playmaker in McCaffrey.

9.Cincinnati Bengals Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama

Allen will be the third defensive end to get drafted inside the top ten. He and Carlos Dunlap will wreak havoc in backfields.

10.Buffalo Bills  Corey Davis. , WR, Western Michigan

Tyrod Taylor needs a reliable go-to weapon because right now he doesn’t have many options.

11. New Orleans Saints Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

Saints need corner help and Humphrey is the best corner available here.

12.Cleveland Browns  Mitchell Trubiksy, QB, Alabama

The Browns are still in search of a franchise quarterback. They hope Trubisky is the guy.

13. Arizona Cardinals Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Bruce Arians is the perfect guy to develop Watson into a franchise quarterback.
