Editor's Note: This mock draft appears in the Pro Football Weekly draft guide, which you can purchase online here.
One of the most entertaining – and often fruitless – exercises is a mock draft, as we try to project who each team will take in the first round.
Pro Football Weekly editors Kevin Fishbain, Arthur Arkush and Nate Atkins put on their GM hats and drafted for the 32 teams. Many of he picks reflect our rankings, but not all of them do.
That's part of the fun and illustrates the challenge facing prognosticators, since 32 teams will have 32 different draft boards.
1. Tennessee Titans: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi
With their franchise QB secure, securing Marcus Mariot's pocket key
2. Cleveland Browns: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio St.
Passing on QB, the Browns get a much-needed playmaker for front 7
3. San Diego Chargers: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
Torn between Decker and Stanley, Chargers go with athletic upside
4. Dallas Cowboys: Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida St.
High-priced corners Morris Claiborne/Brandon Carr not the answer
5. Jacksonville Jaguars: DeForest Buckner, DT, Oregon
Ailing 'D' takes top-flight DT to pair with a rehabbed Dante Fowler Jr.
6. Baltimore Ravens: Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida
Long and feisty corner fills a need and has a perfect attitude for Ravens
7. San Francisco 49ers: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Mississippi
Chip Kelly loves big receivers; NFL's worst passing offense lacks juice
8. Miami Dolphins: Shaq Lawson, OLB, Clemson
After finishing 25th in sacks, Dolphins add some outside pass rush
9: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson
Right after his teammate, Dodd provides pass-rush boost to Bucs.
10: New York Giants: Myles Jack, OLB, UCLA
Jack's speed, versatility just what Steve Spagnuolo, putrid 'D' covert
11: Chicago Bears: A'Shawn Robinson, DL, Alabama
Bears address DL hole with a young, massive man with huge upside
12. New Orleans Saints: Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
Help needed all over 'D' to Saints take best defender available
13. Philadelphia Eagles: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis
Work-in-progress with great upside good match for Doug Pederson
14. Oakland Raiders: Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio St.
Strong LT gives Carr a better chance to get the ball to Cooper, Murray
15. Los Angeles Rams: Jared Goff, QB, California
Rams get a steal and a potential franchise QB, as Goff stays in California
16. Detroit Lions: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio St.
NFL's worst run game gets workhorse to pair with Ameer Abdullah
17. Atlanta Falcons: Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre Dame
Quinn will be pleased to get a playmaker with the talent of Smith
18. Indianapolis Colts: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan St.
Once again, the Colts need a tackle. Good draft for Luck protection
19. Buffalo Bills: Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama
Proven winner, leader should provide understanding 'D' a wake-up call
20. New York Jets: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota St.
Jets can't believe Wentz falls, finally addressing gaping hole on the roster
21. Washington: Robert Nkemdiche, DL, Mississippi
Off-field questions aside, Washington gets a potential star on d-line
22. Houston Texans: Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor
They find 'Nuk counterpart, speed demon in own backyard
23. Minnesota Vikings: Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh
If Boyd is the real deal, he could put Vikes over the top. They bite.
24. Cincinnati Bengals: Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio St.
Cincy stays in-state to get a productive outside linebacker for their 4-3
25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Eli Apple, CB, Ohio St.
Front-7 has talent, reloading CB corps with aggressive DB a good start
26. Seattle Seahawks: Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama
Some better beef in the middle could return defense to 2013 level
27. Green Bay Packers: Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA
With Raji's future uncertain, Packers shore up nose tackle spot
28. Kansas City Chiefs: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
Eric Fisher hasn't panned out; Reid values Alex Smith's protection
29. Arizona Cardinals: Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky
Cards grab a needed pass rusher to complement loaded secondary
30. Carolina Panthers: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
Another big wideout, but this one brings speed for MVP, upstart offense
31. Denver Broncos: Vadal Alexander, OG, LSU
The offensive line is in desperate need of help, so Denver takes the top guard
*Patriots do not have a first-round pick because of Deflategate.
