7. San Diego Chargers
8. Carolina Panthers
9. Cincinnati Bengals
10. Buffalo Bills
11. New Orleans Saints
12. Cleveland Browns (from the Philadelphia Eagles)
13. Arizona Cardinals
14. Philadelphia Eagles (from the Minnesota Vikings)
15. Indianapolis Colts
16. Baltimore Ravens
17. Washington Redskins
18. Tennessee Titans
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
20. Denver Broncos

28. Dallas Cowboys

Two mock drafts from knowledgeable sources were done just prior to the NFL divisional round being played, and while there are some consensus picks between the two, there is some variation as well. updated its mock draft on Thursday, January 12, and Rob Rang of CBS Sports issued his mock on the same day. Here are the first round picks on which they agree:

1. Cleveland – Myles Garrett, Texas A&M defensive end
3. Chicago – Jonathan Allen, Alabama defensive lineman
5. Tennessee – Jamal Adams, LSU safety
7. San Diego – Malik Hooker, Ohio State safety
8. Carolina – Leonard Fournette, LSU running back
20. Denver – Ryan Ramcyzk, Wisconsin offensive tackle
26. Seattle – Garrett Boles, Utah offensive tackle

While those are seven spots in which both mocks have the respective teams taking the same players, there are numerous other spots in which the two mocks have the corresponding teams taking a player at the same position, but simply not the exact same player. Both mocks have Dallas selecting a cornerback, Detroit taking a defensive lineman, Washington going d-line, Philadelphia opting for a wide receiver, Cleveland snagging a cornerback with its second pick, the Jets placing their hopes in new quarterback, and San Francisco following the Jets’ example.

After next week’s conference championship games, fans will know who will pick 29th and 30th in April’s draft, and two more fan bases will look toward that event as a way to improve their team’s chances to reach Super Bowl LII.
