Team  Pick Player School Explanation
Tampa Bay 1 Jameis Winston FSU Best quarterback in the draft. Tampa Bay hopefully gets the franchise QB they have been searching for
Tennessee 2 Marcus Mariota Oregon Ultimately the decision comes down to Mariota or a trade. If they do stay I assume they take Mariota to give the Titans fans a little hope for the future
Jacksonville 3 Dante Fowler Florida Gus Bradley needs some young pass rushers to bring some ferocity back to the Jaguars defense. Immediate starter at LEO
Oakland 4 Amari Cooper Alabama Most polished recevier in the draft. Immediate starter for the Raiders offense, no. 1 receiver for the future for Carr
Washington 5 Leonard Williams USC If Williams fell into the laps of the Redskins I would expect this pick to take all of 20 seconds to be in. Williams is potentially the best overall player in this draft, and would be an immediate impact player for one of the leagues worst defenses
New York Jets 6 Vic Beasley Clemson Todd Bowles likes to send pressure from everywhere, and with a freak athlete like Beasley he gets a young chip
Chicago 7 Trae Waynes Michigan St. Bears have needs all-over the defensive side of the football. Waynes, although not my favoirte CB will be overdrafted due to his elite long speed
Atlanta 8 Brandon Scherff Iowa Atlanta needs to protect Matt Ryan if they want to take the next step in the NFC South. Scherff gives the Falcons a day 1 starter who can play on interior or on an island at tackle
New York Giants 9 Kevin White WVU Someone will fall in love with Kevin White's freakish athletic ability. While I rank White as the #3 WR behind Parker and Cooper, the pairing of ODB and White would be enticing
St. Louis 10 DeVante Parker Louisville The Rams have a lot of talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Parker gives the Rams the no. 1 WR they have been looking for 
Minnesota 11 Bud Dupree Kentucky Like the Titans I expect the Titans to trade down and accumulate more picks. With Parker off the board and Adrian Peterson still on the roster, the Vikings add another freak pass-rusher.
Cleveland 12 Danny Shelton Washington Massive nose tackle that fills the most important position in the 3-4 defense. Should be a starter for the next decade and dramatically improve the Browns putrid rush defense. 
New Orleans 13 Marcus Peters Washington Back-to-back Huskies go as the Saints add the talented cover corner in Peters. While he does come with some off-field baggage, Peters could potentially be a shut-down corner very soon
Miami 14 Todd Gurley Georgia My favorite player in the draft, and without an ACL injury Gurley likely goes in the top-10. Has the skill-set to be a 3-down RB immediately
San Francisco 15 Arik Armstead Oregon Probably the most physically gifted player in the draft. Elite movement skills on a 6'7" frame, potential to be the steal of the 1st round. 
Houston 16 Kevin Johnson Wake Forest Underrated CB in this class w/ plus ball skills, and crazy short area quickness. Improves one of the league's worst secondaries immediately. 
San Diego 17 Melvin Gordon Wisconsin I doubt SD makes the move to no.2 for Mariota, and with the lack of a running game the Chargers take the gamble on the electric Melvin Gordon. Immediately becomes the focal point of the Chargers running game, and a center-piece for the future.
Kansas City 18 Nelson Agholor USC One of the more underapprecaited WR's in this draft. Has a well-rounded game, and the ability to play immediately in the slot, as well as on the boundary.
Cleveland (From Buffalo) 19 Maxx Williams Minnesota The best TE in the draft. Has the ability to up and get the football in traffic, as well as make plays after the catch. Not quite Jeremy Shockey athletically, but plays with the same nastiness
Philadelphia  20 Byron Jones UCONN Physically gifted athlete w/ glimmering off-field record. Chip Kelly likes these types of players, and should fit in nicely opposite Byron Maxwell
Cincinnati 21 Malcolm Brown Texas With Texas football out of the national spotlight many didn’t get the chacne to see Brown play. He has the aggressiveness to fit in behind Geno Atkins and add some depth to a depleted pass rush
Pittsburgh 22 Landon Collins Alabama The loss of Polamalu to the Steelers secondary is going to be a major impact, despite Troy not being as physically gifted as he was earlier in his career. Collins would be an immediate replacement, and bring back the tough, hard-nosed attitude associated w/ Steelers football
Detroit 23 Cameron Erving FSU Versatile lineman with the ability to play 4 of the 5 spots on the OL. If the Lions want Stafford to succeed they have to add some young depth to the offensive line. 
Arizona 24 Eric Kendricks UCLA With Daryl Washington's future in limbo the Cardinals add another tackling machine in Kendricks. There have been some reports of a knee issue, but Kendricks has a nose for the football and is underrated from a coverage standpoint
Carolina 25 D.J. Humprhries Florida Athletic offensive lineman for a team that desperately needs one. When signing Michael Oher is considered an "upgrade" you still have work to do
Baltimore 26 Devin Smith Ohio St The best deep ball receiver in the draft, and with Flacco's big arm this is a match made in heavan. Smith is definitely not a one-trick pony like many portray him as
Dallas 27 Owamagbe Odighizuwa UCLA Yes this is a real name folks. Better known as Owa, has the size/strength/athleicsm to play in any defense as a 3-4 DE, or a 4-3 DE. Check out his game tape from USC if you have any questions about his game. It speaks for itself, this kid is legit.
Denver 28 Ereck Flowers Miami Peyton Manning is getting older, and likely will not be around much longer. For the best success the team needs to add offensive lineman to help keep Manning upright. Despite not being a great fit for Kubiak's zone-run system the talent was too much to pass up. 
Indianapolis 29 Eric Rowe Utah One of the most underrated players in the draft. Has the ability to line up at safety as well as CB. Should fit in well opposite Vontae Davis
Green Bay 30 Benardrick McKinney Miss St.  A.J. Hawk is gone, could go with Stephone Anthony or CB here, but McKinneys potential is too much to pass up for Dom Capers and the Packers defense.
New Orleans (from Seattle) 31 Dorial Green-Beckham Oklahoma New Orleans could add a WR earlier and could potentiall add a pass rusher here, but the potential of Green-Beckham is too much to pass up for the Saints offense. If he can stay clean off-field Green-Beckham has the potential to become the no. 1 WR in the class
New England 32 Carl Davis Iowa Such a Patriots pick. They could add a WR or add depth to the OL, but instead add the Hawkeyes pass-rusher with loads of potential. Some people may object, but Bellicheck always does the unexpected

About Us

We believe Fantasy Football success comes down to two things — opportunity and talent. You will have Fantasy Football mastered once you understand how good a player is and how good of an opportunity he has to gain yards and score touchdowns. The thing is, you'll never master Fantasy Football. But you can get pretty darn good at it when you have even a slightly better understanding of opportunity and talent than the average Joe. That's what Fantasy Football Helpers is dedicated to doing.
