The real deal is set to kick off April 27 in Philadelphia.
>> EXPERTS' LATEST MOCK DRAFT PREDICTIONS
Round 1 (23 overall): Charles Harris, DE, Missouri
Harris, who did not put on a football jersey until his junior year of high school, finished tied for seventh in Missouri history with 18.0 career sacks, while his 34.5 tackles for loss rank 11th. The 6-foot-3, 253-pound defensive end had a breakout season in 2015 when he earned second-team All-SEC honors after leading the conference in tackles for loss (18.5).
“I'm not sold on the Giants' offensive tackles, but for now, I'm going with a pass-rusher who can spell Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon,” Kiper wrote. “Harris is a versatile defender who could play for all 32 teams.”
Round 2 (55): Marcus Williams, S, Utah
“Last year's third-round pick, Darian Thompson, missed most of the 2016 season because of injury, and we still don't know if he's the long-term answer at free safety,” Kiper wrote. “Williams is a super athletic (43½-inch vertical) center fielder who would fit alongside Landon Collins.”
Round 3 (87): Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
Perine finished as the Sooners’ all-time leading rusher (4,122 yards), despite turning pro after just three seasons. He also holds the NCAA single-game rushing record with 427 yards vs. Kansas in 2014.
“Perine is just a bully,” Kiper wrote. “At 5-foot-11, 233 pounds, he steamrolls defenders. New York had one of the worst rushing offenses in the league last season, and Perine brings value late in the third round.”
