Baker Mayfield thinks he should be placed higher in mock drafts

Baker Mayfield thinks he should be placed higher in mock drafts

Here's what Kiper wrote about the Patriots' selection from his first mock draft, in which ESPN's expert draft analyst projected the Patriots to take USC defensive end Rasheem Green.

Kiper has neither player going in the first round. Juniors had until Monday to declare, so it likely will come soon. NY took safeties with its top two picks previous year (Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye), so Fitzpatrick would be a corner for the Jets, who have an opening with Morris Claiborne a free agent this offseason.

"Injured the last couple years", Kiper said. "Remember, he also had the injury to deal with, but I think you're dealing with a solid second-round pick there".

LSU previous year had three players selected in the first round, with running back Leonard Fournette at No. 4 overall (Jacksonville Jaguars), safety Jamal Adams at No. 6 (New York Jets) and cornerback Tre'Davious White at No. 27 (Buffalo Bills). He compares his anticipated drop for Guice to that of Alvin Kamara, the Saints rookie sensation who was not drafted until the third round past year.

There's a chance Scarbrough could be the next great late-round running back to emerge as a star at the game's highest level, however, his injury history has to be a concern for National Football League franchises. Look at Alvin Kamara. "To me, he's got a chance to be up in that third-to-fifth-round area with a good week in Mobile".

Djokovic overcomes injury scare, defeats Vinolas at Australian Open
Up next for Djokovic is the No. 21 seed Albert Ramos Viñolas of Spain. "It's a very complex subject to talk about". The last couple of days haven't been that hot but then it's shot up to 40 degrees".

I like Allen and see the upside of why teams should be intrigued.

In Week 2 of the 2016 season, James tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee against Charleston Southern and sat out for the rest of the season. Two picks later, Kiper Jr. has wide receiver Calvin Ridley going to the Chicago Bears.

"Well, I think when you look at the versatility, obviously", Kiper said in a teleconference Thursday. "He has size and athleticism, and is helped by the big punt return against Auburn".

Kiper views cornerback as an area of weakness for the Rams, which won the NFC West.

Kiper has Mayfield going No. 13 to the Washington Redskins, although that pick is subject to change based on what the 'Skins do with current franchise quarterback Kirk Cousins, who's set to become a free agent.
