NFL Draft Picks

Laremy Tunsil- Tunsil was long expected to be the first pick in the draft and play professional football in Nashville. That changed when the Titans traded their picks to the Rams for an insane amount of draft picks.

Tunsil will likely no longer be the first or even second pick in the draft. He could conceivably go No. 3 to the Chargers, but that’s far from a guarantee at this point. The Jaguars have the No. 5 pick in the draft, but are reasonably stable at the left tackle position. The Ravens are at No. 6 and would most likely not pass over Tunsil.

Possible Suitors: San Diego, Jacksonville, Baltimore

Collin’s Pick: Baltimore






Laquon Treadwell– Treadwell is one of the most interesting picks in the draft. Treadwell will likely be the first wide receiver off the board, but to which team is the question.

The heralded wide receiver had a subpar 40-yard-dash time at his pro day, but is physical enough to make up for that. Treadwell’s likely first landing spot is with the Detroit Lions at No. 16. The Lions are looking to replace former Pro Bowl wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who retired earlier this year. Another possible place for Treadwell is with the Minnesota Vikings at No. 23. The Vikings lack star power at wide receiver, and Treadwell would be a good match for young quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Possible Suitors: Green Bay, Minnesota, Detroit

Collin’s pick: Minnesota






Robert Nkemdiche – This will be the wild card tomorrow. Some people are projecting Nkemdiche will not be selected in tomorrow’s first round, and others see him as a late first-round pick.

Nkemdiche’s stock has fallen since his arrest in December after law enforcement officials found weed in the defensive lineman’s hotel room after he fell out of a window. Nkemdiche has all the talent in the world, but some teams wonder if they can trust him to make the correct decisions off the field. Nkemdiche’s suitors are kind of unclear, as any team could take a chance on the defensive lineman. The first place that Nkemdiche would likely be selected is at No. 19 with the Buffalo Bills. Rex Ryan isn’t against picking players like Nkemdiche. Another place where Nkemdiche could find himself playing NFL football over the next few years is Seattle. The Seahawks are known for their fast and physical defense. Denver is another possibility for Nkemdiche if he falls to the last pick in the first round.

Possible Suitors: Buffalo, Seattle, Denver

Collin’s Pick: Buffalo
