2017 NFL Draft: Breaking down Todd McShay’s updated big board

McShay has updated his top 32 for us after spending a week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. Not a whole lot has changed at the top, but there’s been some major shuffling in the teens. Again, McShay and Kiper are the two most plugged in guys, so their boards are pretty significant. Let’s take a look.

Myles Garrett and Jonathan Allen sit on top. The two SEC standouts have been locked in the top spots on most boards all draft season. I’m interested to see if Allen falls any later in the process. He’s a bit of a tweener by NFL standards. Teams may want him to bulk up or slim down.

Leonard Fournette sits at three, staying firmly in the top five discussion. Jacksonville is a team to watch here. His NFL teammate Jamal Adams is 4th overall, remaining a real option for the Bears, Jaguars and Titans.

Stanford’s Solomon Thomas keeps climbing. He’s 5th this time around for good reason. He’s a very impressive and polished player. I think he’s a lock for the top ten at this point.

Popular Titans and Jets target Marshon Lattimore sits 7th overall, firmly planted as the number one cornerback on the board.

A Titans fan favorite — Reuben Foster — is 9th overall. Foster is a little hard to pin on the board, simply because linebackers don’t go this high very often. I think he ends up in the teens somewhere.

Mike Williams checks in at 11, ten spots higher than Corey Davis. This is a classic case of big draft media vs. draftnik opinion. Most guys that write for smaller sites are ranking Corey Davis higher (myself included) but those that are plugged into the NFL won’t budge off of Williams. I think this will come down to Williams’ performance at the Combine later this month.

Washington cornerback Sidney Jones jumps into the top 20 at 18th overall. You’ll be hearing a lot about this guy in the coming weeks. He’s a top three corner for me at worst and I think he’s a real option for the Titans at pick 18. Tre’Davious White is another potential Titan target, checking in at 22 on the board.
