The Tide had four players drafted in the first round in 2011 (Marcell Dareus, Julio Jones, James Carpenter, Mark Ingram), 2012 (Trent Richardson, Mark Barron, Dre Kirkpatrick, Dont'a Hightower) and 2017 (Marlon Humphrey, Jonathan Allen, O.J. Howard, Reuben Foster).
And with the 11th overall selection, Kiper projected that the Miami Dolphins will take Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey. Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson was still available for the Patriots to take at pick No. 32 in this edition of the mock draft, along with several others, including Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph, Washington State's Luke Falk and Memphis' Riley Ferguson. With that in mind, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. And I don't think we can say that about him. Makes sense for the L.A. Rams, I have him going to.
There are certainly plenty of variables in place too, with the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine, pro days, individual workouts and free agency still left that could change the direction some teams want to go and how they feel about certain prospects.

Kiper is concerned about Rosen's ability to stay on the field.
"He's got a chance at the Senior Bowl in Mobile to enhance his stock", Kiper said of Lauletta. He was a third-round pick. "I think he could go as high as the second round". But should a team decide later in the first round to pick a running back, it could well be Guice, it seems.
"Orlando Brown is a late one, early two", Kiper said.
Kiper appeared most intrigued with Andrews, the Sooners' productive tight end.
However, one concern I have with Payne is his production. Ward is the top corner in this class - if you consider Fitzpatrick to be a safety - though I don't have as high a grade on him as I did for his former teammate Marshon Lattimore, who went No. 11 previous year and had a great rookie season in New Orleans. The underclassmen who chose to go back to school also has a major impact on this update.
