On Apr. 25, the NFL Draft kicks off and a new class of rookies will be introduced into the NFL.

The likes of Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams will look to turn their dreams into reality and dominate at the next level, just as they did in college.

What better way to bring on this great night than a two-part mock draft that will take you right to the footsteps of draft night.

Part one will include pick number 32 through pick number 17.

Part two will include pick number 16 through the first overall pick in this year’s draft. Part two will be published on Wednesday, Apr. 24, the day before the draft.

(This mock draft does not include potential trades.)

32. New England Patriots: WR Hakeem Butler, Iowa State. Butler is a six-foot-five-inch physical specimen that has the potential to replace the production on the outside of Chris Hogan while also being a dynamic threat in the Red Zone.

31. Los Angeles Rams: DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson. Lawrence is a plug and play replacement for Ndamukong Suh, who remains a free agent. Lawrence is a big body (342 lbs) that will dominate while playing next to Aaron Donald.

30. Green Bay Packers (via Saints): WR Parris Campbell, Ohio State. The Packers were aggressive in free agency, improving their defense. Now, it’s time to give Aaron Rodgers more weapons.

29. Kansas City Chiefs: S Nasir Adderley, Delaware. A smaller-school prospect that has experience playing both safety and cornerback at a collegiate level.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: DL Christain Wilkins, Clemson. The downfall for the Chargers last season was their inability to stop the run in the playoffs. Beefing up the middle should help an already talented defense.

27. Oakland Raiders (via Dallas): TE Noah Fant, Iowa. Fant can make up for the loss of Jared Cook in free agency right away. He is the most athletic tight end in the draft.

26. Indianapolis Colts: DL Jeffrey Simmons, Mississippi State. Simmons is a top-tier talent, but his stock is falling due to a torn ACL suffered while training this offseason. The Colts don’t have many holes, but stacking the line with a talent like Simmons may pay off in the long run.

25. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Deandre Baker, Georgia. Philadelphia has other needs on defense, like linebacker, but the value on remaining linebackers is simply not there at this point. Baker fills another need for a struggling secondary.

24. Oakland Raiders (via Bears): RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama. Khalil Mack turns into a running back. Jacobs punishes defenders with his combination of power and speed.

23. Houston Texans: OL Andre Dillard, Washington State. Adding a potential franchise tackle and keeping DeShaun Watson protected will raise the ceiling for the quarterback along with the Houston offense going forward.

22. Baltimore Ravens: WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, Oklahoma. At the moment, the starting receivers for the Ravens are Willie Snead and Jordan Lasley. Brown is a dynamic talent who may fall down draft boards due to injury, but once healthy, he can be the number one target for Lamar Jackson.

21. Seattle Seahawks: WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State. Re-sign Russell Wilson, under any circumstance. Do not allow him to leave the franchise. Then go draft him a weapon to throw to like Harry.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Greedy Williams, LSU. Getting perhaps the number one corner in this class at 20 is a steal. Williams is long, fast and can mirror receivers well. Pairing him with Joe Haden should solidify the secondary in Pittsburgh.

19. Tennessee Titans: WR DK Metcalf, Ole Miss. Metcalf was a physical specimen at the Combine but struggles with change of direction. Regardless, pairing him with Corey Davis, a top pick two years ago, will help quarterback Marcus Mariota.

18. Minnesota Vikings: EDGE Clelin Farrell, Clemson. There have been discussions about Everson Griffen being cut by the Vikings. Ferrell can step in and fill the hole right away.

17. New York Giants (via Browns): OL Jonah Williams, Alabama. Williams is a versatile tackle who has played on both the right and left side for the Crimson Tide. Williams can protect the quarterback, as he shows good footwork and can open up lanes for second-year back Saquan Barkley.
