Updated 52 NFL Mock Drafts: Garrett overwhelming top pick in NFL Draft

The NFL Mock Draft Database consensus picks have been updated for the top six picks and the Washington Redskins.   The 52 mock drafts we munched for consensus picks were updated between March 26 and April 1.   Consistent with prior Mock Draft Database mock munches, DE Myles Garrett is the overwhelming consensus pick as the top overall pick in the NFL Draft to the Cleveland Browns.  In fact, only 1 of the 52 mock drafts selected another player than Garrett.

The NFL Mock Draft Database is updated multiple times per week. This is the 15th NFL Draft that the Mock Draft Database has tracked mock drafts. The Database is made up of a wide variety of mock drafts, from national media sites, to media general sites, to individual team fan sites, to NFL Draft sites and to personal blogs.

Here is how the Top Six picks in the NFL Draft look, according to the various NFL mock drafts.

NFL Mock Drafts overwhelmingly select DE Myles Garrett as top pick

1st Overall Pick: Cleveland Browns

Projected Pick: DE Myles Garrett

Projection: 98% of 52 recent mock drafts

NFL Mock Drafts are convinced that the Cleveland Browns will select Myles Garrett as the top pick in the NFL Draft.  All but one of the 52 most recent NFL mock drafts chose Garrett as the top pick.   Garrett is the consensus top defensive lineman in the NFL Draft.  His performance at the NFL Combine has done absolutely nothing to shake that confidence.  He ran a quite impressive 4.64 40 at the Combine.  At the Texas A & M Pro Day, he improved that 40 times t0 4.62 seconds, a slight improvement.  Garrett is entering the NFL Draft as a Junior out of Texas A & M where he recorded 32.5 sacks.  Garrett confirmed that he had dinner recently with the Browns front office brass.

2nd Overall Pick: San Francisco 49ers

Projected Pick: DE Soloman Thomas

Projection: 54% of 52 recent mock drafts

This is a new consensus pick. DE Jonathan Allen has led here in each of our prior NFL Mock Draft consensus tabulations. Now, more than half of the 52 most recent NFL mock drafts believe that San Fran will take Stanford DL Solomon Thomas. Thomas has been steadily climbing up mock drafts for the past few weeks.  At Stanford last year, Thomas racked up 61 tackles with an impressive 14 of those tackles for loss of yards.  He also contributed 8.5 sacks and 2 fumble recoveries.  He hit a 4.69 40 at the NFL Combine.  Other top picks here are S Malik Hooker (9 mocks) and DE Jonathan Allen (4 mocks).

3rd Overall Pick: Chicago Bears

Projected Pick: DE Johnathan Allen

Projection: 47% of 52 recent mock drafts

DE Jonathan Allen is the favorite of 46% of the 52 most recent NFL mock drafts to the Bears as the third overall pick.  Combined, 35 of the 52 mock drafts slate Allen between the 2nd and 4th picks.  The senior from Alabama recorded 69 tackles, of which 16 were for loss of yards.  Allen recorded 10.5 sacks and recovered 3 fumbles last season.  Over a four year career with the Tide, Allen posted 152 tackles and 28 sacks.  Other popular picks here are S Jamal Adams (9 mocks) and CB Marshon Lattimore (8 mocks)

4th Overall Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars

Projected Pick: RB Leonard Fournette

Projection: 63% of the 52 mock drafts

More and more NFL mock drafts each week are growing confident that Jacksonville will select LSU RB Leonard Fournette as the 4th overall NFL draft pick.  That numbers has climbed over 50% with 63% of mocks projecting Fournette to the Jags.  Most NFL Draft sites have Fournette ranked as the top running back in the NFL Draft. In three seasons at LSU, Fournette dominated, gaining 3,830 yards on 616 carries for an impressive 6.2 yards per carry and 40 touchdowns.  Fournette also grabbed 41 passes for 526 yards.  Other popular picks here are TE OJ Howard, DE Solomon Thomas, and QB DaShaun Watson.

5th Overall Pick: Tennessee Titans

Projected Pick:  CB Marshon Lattimore

Projection: 31% of 52 recent mock drafts

Safety Jamal Adams has led here for weeks of our NFL mock draft consensus.  Not anymore.  31% of the 52 most recent NFL mock drafts project the Titans to select CB Marshon Lattimore.  In fact, there are strong reports coming out of Nashville media that the Titans are pretty set on Lattimore.  The Ohio State corner is widely regarded as the top corner back in the NFL Draft.  In 13 games last season, Lattimore recorded 41 tackles and added 4 interceptions, including one pick six.  Other popular choices are:  S Jamal Adams (13 mocks) and S Malik Hooker (5 mocks).

6th Overall Pick: New York Jets

Projected Pick: CB Marshon Lattimore

Projection: 23% of 52 recent mock drafts

If the Titans pass on Lattimore, he could be selected by the New York Jets.  Lattimore is the new leader here with 23% of mocks projecting him sixth overall.  The Jets pick is really all over the board and should be.  It will be based on what happens above.  Other popular picks here are TE OJ Howard (8 mocks), QB Mitchell Trubisky (8 mocks), and QB DaShaun Watson (6 mocks)
