  6. Baltimore Ravens – OT Laremy Tunsil, Mississippi
  7. San Francisco 49ers – DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon
  8. Cleveland Browns – LB Myles Jack, UCLA
  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – LB Leonard Floyd, Georgia
  10. New York Giants – OT Jack Conklin, Michigan State
  11. Chicago Bears – CB Vernon Hargreaves, Florida
  12. New Orleans Saints – DT Sheldon Rankins, Louisville
  13. Miami Dolphins – RB Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State
  14. Oakland Raiders – CB Eli Apple, Ohio State
  15. Tennessee Titans – OT Taylor Decker, Ohio State

  26. Seattle Seahawks – OT Germain Ifedi, Texas A&M
  27. Green Bay Packers – DT Jarran Reed, Alabama

  29. Arizona Cardinals – OC Ryan Kelly, Alabama
  30. Carolina Panthers – DE Kevin Dodd, Clemson
  31. Denver Broncos – WR Laquon Treadwell, Misssissippi

I also promised several weeks ago that I would post a complete seven-round mock draft projecting all 253 picks. Unfortunately, I was unable to complete that once those trades at the top of the draft forced me to have to re-do it. But here are the five picks I had projected for the Falcons:

1/17. Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State
2/50. Keanu Neal, S, Florida
3/81. Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
4/115. Joe Thuney, OG, N.C. State
7/238. Ryan Smith, CB, North Carolina Central
