It is time ladies and gents! One of the greatest nights of the year has arrived and I am sure it will not disappoint. From Murray vs. Rosen, to one of the most stacked defensive classes we have ever seen. We did not predict trades so give us a little slack if we get a few wrong. With out further ado…Here is the the final Korner Booth NFL Mock Draft: 2.0.
Marc: Kyler Murray, QB – Oklahoma
Mel Kiper said this a 99.9% lock which makes me want to go in a different direction, but I am going to fall for the rumors. Kingsbury gets the guy he has wanted since Kyler was a sophomore in high school. Next question is where will Rosen end up?
Grade A: Nick Bosa
Jared: Kyler Murray, QB – Oklahoma
Kingsbury recruited him, and what better way to rebuild than having a mobile passer behind a bad offensive line?
Marc: Nick Bosa, EDGE – Ohio State
This is just one of those picks that seems like it is just bound to happen. If he doesn’t go one, he will go two to the Niners. Shanahan and John Lynch have to love this guy and this pick as a whole.
Grade A: Josh Allen
Jared: Nick Bosa, EDGE – Ohio State
He is the best player in the draft, creating the perfect combo given the Dee Ford trade to give the Niners an explosive pass rush.
Marc: Quinnen Williams, IDL – Alabama
Just when you think the Jets off-season couldn’t get any better. Williams is a man among boys regardless of his baby face and braces. He is a freak of an athlete and will excel no matter who drafts him.
Grade A: Quinnen Williams
Jared: Jawaan Taylor, OT – Florida
After a great offseason for the Jets getting Sam Darnold help, what better way than to get him help on the O-Line and get the top tackle in the draft.
Marc: Dwayne Haskins, QB – Ohio State
Surprise, surprise. The Raiders media have rumored that the draft world will be shocked with this pick and this is why. Gruden and Mayock like film room guys who can read and describe situations. Carr has never been Gruden’s guy and will be shipped somewhere else shortly after this pick.
Grade A: Ed Oliver
Jared: Josh Allen, EDGE – Kentucky
The Raiders struggled getting after the QB last year, and Allen’s a premiere pass rusher that should help replace the hole Khalil Mack left.
Marc: Devin White, LB – LSU
This pick just makes the most sense and I do not see him going anywhere else. That is unless the Buc’s go into a different direction and he falls to the Giants or Bengals.
Grade A: Devin White
Jared: Devin White, LB – LSU
The Buc’s lose Kwon Alexander and they now can get back a similar player in Devin White, an extremely athletic linebacker
Marc: Josh Allen, EDGE – Kentucky
This organization is better when their OL or DL is at its best. Allen falls to them at six and they use it on Allen and wait to grab a QB later in the draft.
Grade A: Jawaan Taylor
Jared: Quinnen Williams, IDL – Alabama
The best Interior lineman in the draft, a freak athlete for his size and the film to back up the combine numbers. He’s arguably the best prospect in the draft Giants go value here.
Marc: Jawaan Taylor, OT – Florida
Foles got paid, so why not shore up that O-Line to make your QB happy. Coughlin always had a strong O-Line when he was in New York and he keeps that going with Taylor here at seven.
Grade A: T.J. Hockenson
Jared: Rashan Gary, EDGE – Michigan
Jags need to re-up their front 4, and what a better way to start then grab Gary. Regardless of his 9 on the Wonderlic Test, he’s an end I’m not worried about it.
Marc: T.J. Hockenson, TE Iowa
Patricia continues to follow the Patriot way by grabbing his version of Gronk. Stafford needs a safety valve and Hockenson can do that with his hands for pass catching as well as blocking.
Grade A: Rashan Gary
Jared: D.K. Metcalf, WR – Ole Miss
Lions shock a lot of people and go for a straight line deep threat to give Stafford another weapon to go with Marvin Jones.
Marc: Ed Oliver, IDL – Houston
Coach McDermott needs help on the interior now that long time vet Kyle Williams has retired. Ed Oliver has a chip on his shoulder after being a possible Heisman candidate, to a smaller inconsistent D-lineman.
Grade A: Christian Wilkins
Jared: Ed Oliver, IDL – Houston
The Bills lose Kyle Williams and replace him with another solid interior linemen who has been getting a ton of top ten looks so close to draft time.
Marc: Christian Wilkins, IDL – Clemson
Wilkins is a football guy through and through. The Broncos wait to grab their future QB until next years draft and take what they know best, defense.
Grade A: Devin Bush Jr.
Jared: T.J. Hockenson, TE Iowa
The Broncos fill a huge hole in their team due to the fact I cant name a tight end on their roster. Hockenson is a Gronk type and can catch passes as well as block for Phillip Lindsey.
Marc: Andre Dillard, OT – Washington State
Zach Taylor is going to do what Shanahan did in San Fran. He didn’t grab his QB in his first year because that requires win now. They will shore up other needs this year and grab a QB in free agency, or the draft next year
Grade A: Dwayne Haskins
Jared: Drew Lock, QB – Missouri
New Coach, new QB. The bungles will try to their “Lock” with a cannon arm gunslinger instead of Dalton.
Marc: Jonah Williams, OT/G – Alabama
This is officially Aaron Rodgers’ team now that McCarthy is gone and that means offensive help. This could be a trade back for a WR, but if they stay here I think Williams is a great fit as a utility lineman.
Grade A: Jonah Williams
Jared: Noah Fant, TE – Iowa
Green Bay tries to rebuild for one more run with Rodgers adding a young TE will add some spark to the offense.
Marc: Rashan Gary, EDGE – Michigan
If Gary does not fall to the Dolphins along with guys like Wilkins & Oliver, this could be an easy trade back pick considering Redskins and Giants are looking for QB’s a few picks back.
Grade A: Kyler Murray
Jared: Dwayne Haskins, QB – Ohio State
The Phin’s finally move on from Ryan Tannehill and having this young guy sit behind Fitzmagic for a year could be a good for the pocket passer from OSU.
*Disclaimer* I think Haskins is the most overrated QB in this draft.
Marc: Montez Sweat, EDGE – Mississippi State
Dan Quinn loves athletic defensive players that can move. Sweat might fall further than this pick due to his heart condition, but this seems like a great fit for him all around.
Grade A: Brian Burns
Jared: Brian Burns, EDGE – Florida State
FSU Falcons need to get after the QB and Vic Beasley needs some help. Burns should fit the bill.
Marc: Brian Burns, EDGE – Florida State
If the Skins do not trade up to get a guy like Haskins or Murray, they could very well select Lock or Jones here. I think they pass on a QB this year and wait for a possible loaded class next year or trade back into the first round to grab a QB if their guy is still there.
Grade A: Montez Sweat
Jared: Daniel Jones, QB – Duke
Skins look for the next man up because there is no way Keenum is any teams future QB. Jones is a big body QB but struggles with accuracy. Sitting behind a vet may help him develop, but it is the redskins so it’s a toss up if it works.
Marc: Cody Ford, OT – Oklahoma
Cam Newton is the main priority of this team. He gets banged up every year because he is always under pressure. Ford would help fix that problem.
Grade A: Andre Dillard
Jared: Montez Sweat, EDGE – Mississippi State
The freak of the edge rushers Sweat is fast and strong, but raw. He is still a good fit to replace Peppers.
Marc: Daniel Jones, QB – Duke
Couldn’t disagree with this pick more, but for some reason Jones is rising up draft boards and the Giants are rumored to be big fans of him. As an Eagles fan, take him.
Grade A: Drew Lock
Jared: Andre Dillard, OT – Washington State
Now that the Giants have their DT, they can get some protection for whoever the giants have under center.
Marc: Garrett Bradbury, IOL – N.C. State
Nothing is really intriguing about this pick or this team to me because Cousins is still their QB. This pick makes the most sense to protect a player they guaranteed around $80 million dollars.
Grade A: Garret Bradbury
Jared: Jonah Williams, OT/G – Alabama
Vikings are stuck with Cousins for a while, but at least grabbing a solid tackle will keep him off his back more to reduce his interceptions.
Marc: Noah Fant, TE – Iowa
If Mariota is their guy then they need to get a guy like Fant who can fill the role of Delanie Walker when the time comes. Mariota likes athletic TE’s and is a better QB when having one. Not a popular pick, but makes sense if Mariota is the long-term guy.
Grade A: Noah Fant
Jared: Christian Wilkins, IDL – Clemson
The Titans adding a talent like Wilkins will help their front 4 and help the identity of their “run the ball and play defense” style.
Marc: Devin Bush, LB – Michigan
As much as I would like to see a comeback from Ryan Shazier, it just doesn’t seem likely. This team needs a leader on defense and I think Bush can fill that role. The Steelers would be thrilled if Bush falls to 20, if not they might trade up for him or Devin White.
Grade A: Rock Ya-Sin
Jared: N’Keal Harry, WR – Arizona State
Steelers get themselves a replacement for AB in Harry. Being 6’2, 225 he is a little bigger and a larger target for Big Ben downfield.
Marc: Darnell Savage, S – Maryland
The Seahawks are a wild card team because they could go at this draft at any angle. With Earl Thomas out in Seattle, this seems like the pick made unless they trade back. Savage’s name goes with how he plays, fast and tough.
Grade A: Clelin Ferrell
Jared: Jonathan Abram, S – Mississippi State
Thomas…gone….Chancellor…gone. Seahawks need a replacement. Hopefully Abram fills some of the gap on a team that is going back to a run the ball and play defense style.
Marc: D.K. Metcalf, WR – Ole Miss
This team needs plenty of help at receiver, and this freak of nature might be what they need. If Lamar and D.K. can become buddies, this could be an interesting offense. Metcalf has a lot to prove as a pure receiver though, or he will be a possible bust.
Grade A: D.K. Metcalf
Jared: Devin Bush, LB – Michigan
When you lose half of your linebacking core in free agency, grabbing a solid backer like Bush to replace C.J. Mosley is a start.
Marc: Dalton Risner, OT – Kansas State
Watson seems to always be running for his life back there; either if its him holding on the ball to long, or the pocket collapsing. That all being said, strengthening up the line with Risner makes sense here.
Grade A: Cody Ford
Jared: Cody Ford, OT – Oklahoma
A solid lineman very well balanced, and quick off the ball, which should help Watson out in protection.
Marc: Joshua Jacobs, RB – Alabama
Jacobs has Gruden written all over him. If the Raiders keep this pick and Jacobs is on the board, consider this a guarantee now that beast mode has retired, again.
Grade A: Josh Jacobs
Jared: Joshua Jacobs, RB – Alabama
Versatile back that can play between the tackles now that Beast Mode is retiring. Jacobs is also the best back in the draft.
Marc: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE – Clemson
The Eagles D-Line is solid, but getting old. Drafting Barnett has worked out so far, and a guy like Ferrell would hopefully do the same.
Grade A: Darnell Savage
Jared: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S – Florida
Malcom Jenkins is easily Top 10 Safety but this young Gator can transition to who ever they move on from in the back end of that defense.
Marc: N’Keal Harry, WR – Arizona State
Andrew Luck is healthy and on the verge of an MVP season. He could use some help at wideout and I think a play-maker with great hands like Harry is a good fit here. Could also see Jeffery Simmons going here if the Colts are willing to take the risk with off the field issues and the ACL injury he suffered a few months ago.
Grade A: Jeffery Simmons
Jared: Jeffery Simmons, DT – Mississippi State
The Colts had a solid season and Simmons help shore up the middle of the defense now that they grabbed Justin Houston.
Marc: Rock Ya-Sin, CB – Temple
This team needs a lot of help in the secondary and a player like Rock Ya-Sin or DeAndre baker seem like great fits considering he is okay with getting physical. Would be surprised if they still have this pick at twenty-seven.
Grade A: DeAndre Baker
Jared: Greedy Williams, CB – LSU
The Raiders get the best corner in the draft and help shore up their defense with a young core.
Marc: Marquise Brown, WR – Oklahoma
The inter-division rival Kansas City Chiefs have one of, if not the most electric football player in Tyreek Hill. This guy could mirror that kind of player and some say he is a better all around receiver. If the Chargers are okay with his weight and coming off his foot injury, this seems like a lock if he is still on the board.
Grade A: Hollywood Brown
Jared: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, WR – Oklahoma
Chargers replace the their deep threat and that receiving core with brown is scary.
Marc: Erik McCoy, IOL – Texas A&M
Seattle just made Russell Wilson the highest paid QB in the NFL. Now that that is taken care of they need to keep him healthy by drafting a guy like McCoy.
Grade A: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson
Jared: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE – Clemson
The Seahawks snag Ferrell here and start to replace the pieces they lost in the Frank Clark trade, starting with a solid pass rusher.
Marc: A.J. Brown, WR – Ole Miss
This receiver might low-key be the best in the draft. He has the necessary skillset, but just seemed to be shadowed by Metcalf for obvious reasons. Rodgers would love a guy like Brown if available at this pick.
Grade A: A.J. Brown
Jared: Nasir Adderley, S – Deleware
Packers get more help on defense with a running mate for Amos on the back end of that defense.
Marc: Greedy Williams, CB – LSU
This man almost falls out of the first round which may come to a surprise to many. He has great size and potential, just lacks specific talent, which is why he falls. The Rams will be fine with Greedy and he will have a great mentor in Talib to show him the ropes.
Grade A: Greedy Williams
Jared: Byron Murphy, CB – Washington
An underrated Corner with great ball skills should fit right in on that Rams defense as they try to come back from a disappointing super bowl performance.
Marc: Jeffery Simmons, DT – Mississippi State
The Pats get one of the top prospects in this draft with the final pick in the first round. If Simmons doesn’t tear his ACL a few months back he would have been a top 10 pick in my opinion, even with his off the field issues. Belichick and the Pats get a steal to end the first round.
Grade A: Will Grier
Jared: A.J. Brown, WR – Ole Miss
Patriots need receivers and Brown is a solid route runner who does not mind contact. Tom Brady won’t mind that.
