Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3

1 (65). Houston Texans: OT Cameron Fleming, Stanford

2 (66). Washington Redskins trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars: Jaguars select DE Kareem Martin, UNC


The Deal: The Jaguars trade their 3rd (70) and 5th (159) to the Redskins for their 3rd (66)


Why the Jaguars make this move: The Jaguars want to add another pass rusher in this draft and Martin looks to be the best on the board. They give up the 3rd of their three 5th rounders to jump up 4 spots to ensure they get their man.


Why the Redskins make this move: The Redskins continue to add extra picks and only have to jump down 4 spots to pick up a mid-5th rounder.


3 (67). Oakland Raiders: DE Trent Murphy, Stanford

4 (68). Atlanta Falcons trade to the Houston Texans, who trade it to the Browns : Browns select- WR Martavis Bryant, Clemson    Traded

5 (69). Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Stanley Jean Baptiste, Nebraska

6 (70). Jacksonville Jaguars trade this to the Redskins: Redskins select- S Terrance Brooks, FSU

7 (71). Cleveland Browns: RB Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona

8 (72). Minnesota Vikings trade this pick to the New York Jets: OLB Trevor Reilly, Utah  TRADE


The Deal: The Jets trade their 3rd (80) and 5th (154) to the Vikings for their 3rd (72)


Why the Jets make this move: New York picked up a number of additional comp picks, so they can be confident in dealing a later round selection to jump up here for a guy they really want. Reilly is the best pass rusher on the board and could be a really good starter on their defense.


Why the Vikings make the move: Minnesota gets to pick up an extra selection for moving down a few spots to help deal with the loss of so many picks in their massive trade from the first round.

9 (73). Buffalo Bills: CB Bashaud Breeland, Clemson

10 (74). New York Giants: DE Marcus Smith, Louisville

11 (75). St. Louis Rams: C Marcus Martin, USC

12 (76). Detroit Lions: C Weston Richburg, Colorado State

13 (77). San Francisco 49ers (from Tennessee Titans): DL Ego Ferguson, LSU

14 (78). Dallas Cowboys: DE Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas

15 (79). Baltimore Ravens: RB Terrance West, Towson

16 (80). New York Jets trade this pick to the Vikings:  CB/S Keith McGill, Utah

17 (81). Miami Dolphins traded to the Rams:  Rams select- CB Jaylen Watkins, Florida

18 (82). Chicago Bears: DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State

19 (83). Cleveland Browns (from Pittsburgh Steelers): OT Billy Turner, North Dakota State

20 (84). Arizona Cardinals: FS Dion Bailey, USC

21 (85). Green Bay Packers: WR Paul Richardson, Colorado

22 (86). Philadelphia Eagles traded to the Cowboys: Cowboys select- OT Jack Mewhort, Ohio State

23 (87). Kansas City Chiefs: WR Jarvis Landry, LSU

24 (88). Cincinnati Bengals traded to the Redskins: Redskins select- G Cyril Richardson, Baylor

25 (89). San Diego Chargers: RB Andre Williams, Boston College

26 (90). Indianapolis Colts trade this pick to the Chicago Bears: Bears select- ILB Shane Skov, Stanford


The Deal: The Bears trade their 4th (117) and 5th (156) to the Colts for their 3rd (90)


Why the Bears make the move: Chicago needs to add as many defensive players who can play early on as possible so here they jump up 27 picks to add the highly productive Skov. The Bears are on the cusp of being a very strong contender so giving up a 5th here is not a big deal.


Why the Colts make the move: Indy has dealt away some selections in recent years so adding some depth here isn’t necessarily a bad thing for the Colts.

27 (91). New Orleans Saints:  QB A.J. McCarron, Alabama

28 (92). Carolina Panthers trade this pick to the Buffalo Bills: Bills select- OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee


The Deal: The Bills trade their 4th (109) and 7th (224) and 5th next year to the Panthers for their 3rd (92)


Why the Bills make the move: Buffalo could use a quality right tackle and here they can jump up and land one in Richardson. They do have another pick in a couple spots, but both Carolina or the Patriots could have gone in that direction.


Why the Panthers make the move: Carolina needs extra draft picks so they pick up a 7th this year and a 5th next year to move back less than 20 spots.

29 (93). New England Patriots: TE C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa

30 (94). San Francisco 49ers traded to the Bills: Bills select – OLB Chris Smith, Arkansas

31 (95). Denver Broncos traded to the Steelers: Steelers CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood – Traded

32 (96). Minnesota Vikings (from Seattle Seahawks) trade this pick to the Rams who trade it to the Patriots: Patriots select DT Caraun Reid, Princeton Traded

33 (97). Pittsburgh Steelers (compensatory selection): DT Justin Ellis, LA Tech

34 (98). Green Bay Packers (compensatory selection):  WR Bruce Ellington, South Carolina

35 (99). Baltimore Ravens (compensatory selection): LB/S Telvin Smith, FSU

36 (100). San Francisco 49ers (compensatory selection): WR Robert Herron, Wyoming
