1. Cleveland Browns
DE Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
Notes: With two of the first dozen selections in the first round, Cleveland can grab Garrett — the best player in the draft — at pick No. 1, then perhaps make a calculated risk with a quarterback at No. 12.

2. San Francisco 49ers
QB Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina
Notes: Yes, Trubisky was just a one-year starter for the Tar Heels, but he passed for just 1,014 fewer yards and four fewer touchdowns in nine fewer starts than Carson Wentz, last year’s No. 2 overall pick.

3. Chicago Bears
DE Jonathan Allen, Alabama
Notes: The super-explosive Allen had 10.5 sacks, 15 quarterback hurries and 19.5 tackles for loss as a senior and will give head coach John Fox the kind of impact player the Bears currently lack in their front seven.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars
S Jamal Adams, Louisiana State
Notes: A year after drafting star-in-the-making Jalen Ramsey No. 5 overall, the Jags add another blue-chip secondary prospect in Adams, who could develop into their version of Landon Collins.

5. Tennessee Titans (from Los Angeles Rams)
CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State
Notes: The Titans badly need corner help, and they get their pick of a loaded class in this scenario. We have them going with Lattimore, whose rare athleticism makes up for the fact he only started for one year.

6. New York Jets
QB Deshaun Watson, Clemson
Notes: The Jets need help all over the roster, but they pick up the electrifying Watson to be their quarterback of the future and face of the franchise after he led Clemson to a national championship.

7. Los Angeles Chargers
S Malik Hooker, Ohio State
Notes: Another one-year starter in the secondary for the Buckeyes, Hooker has drawn some comparisons to Earl Thomas for his playmaking ability, but his rawness might make for a steep learning curve.

8. Carolina Panthers
DE Solomon Thomas, Stanford
Notes: I’m tempted to put a running back here, but instead I went with Thomas, whose skill, strength, motor and versatility bring to mind Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett.

10. Buffalo Bills
WR Mike Williams, Clemson
Notes: The Bills have had mixed luck with their last top-10 Clemson wideout (the oft-injured Sammy Watkins), but the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Williams is too good a prospect to pass up for receiver-needy Buffalo.

11. New Orleans Saints
CB Sidney Jones, Washington
Notes: New Orleans needs help all over its defense, and we have them going with the playmaking Jones, who snagged nine interceptions and broke up 21 passes with the Huskies.

12. Cleveland Browns (from Philadelphia)
QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame
Notes: After an up-and-down 2016 season it’s possible Kizer came out a year too early, but possessing elite size and enough tools to project as a quality starter, he’ll be groomed in Cleveland.

13. Arizona Cardinals
TE O.J. Howard, Alabama
Notes: With Larry Fitzgerald likely entering his last season, the Cardinals could use a playmaker in the passing game. They get the top tight end in the class in Howard, who could also develop into a capable run blocker.

14. Indianapolis Colts
RB Leonard Fournette, Louisiana State
Notes: This might be much too low for a player garnering comparisons to Adrian Peterson and Bo Jackson. In this scenario, Fournette gives Indy a chance to take the pressure off Andrew Luck with a legitimate ground game.

15. Philadelphia Eagles (from Minnesota)
RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State
Notes: Even with Fournette gone a pick earlier, this is hardly a conciliation prize for the Eagles. Cook is a home-run hitter able to take just about any carry to the end zone and is readymade to make an impact in a pro passing game.

16. Baltimore Ravens
WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
Notes: With the retirement of Steve Smith, Baltimore could use some receivers. They get one of the best in the draft in Davis, a 6-foot-3, 213-pounder who moves like a much smaller man.

DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State
Notes: The Redskins need some help in the interior of their defense, and they go with a risk-reward prospect in McDowell, whose physical gifts entice amid questions about his work ethic.

18. Tennessee Titans
S Budda Baker, Washington
Notes: Baker’s size (5-foot-8, 180 pounds) will concern some evaluators, but he’s an athletic playmaker with a nose for the football. That sounds like a good fit for the Titans in their second secondary pick.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
DE Taco Charlton, Michigan
Notes: Charlton is a rare prospect in terms of physical ability, but he didn’t put together the type of production you would have hoped to see in college. Some team will fall in love with his skills.

20. Denver Broncos
T Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin
Notes: The Broncos need a lot of help on the offensive line, and they take the first one off the board in the uber-athletic Ramczyk, whose stock has slid due to hip injury concerns.

22. Miami Dolphins
G Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky
Notes: Miami will move 2016 first-rounder Laremy Tunsil outside to replace Branden Albert at left tackle. Lamp could fit in nicely at either guard spot or potentially play right tackle.

Notes: New York’s defense made big strides last year, and they get more help with the addition of Brantley, who has drawn some comparisons to Rams All-Pro Aaron Donald.

24. Oakland Raiders
CB Marlon Humphrey, Alabama
Notes: The Raiders need to upgrade their secondary if they’re going to be a perennial power in the AFC. Humphrey, the son of former Broncos running back Bobby Humphrey, gives them a playmaker.

25. Houston Texans
T Cam Robinson, Alabama
Notes: I wouldn’t put it past the Texans to add a quarterback at the end of the first round after seeing Brock Osweiler last year, but they need help on the O-line, and Robinson can start at right tackle immediately.

26. Seattle Seahawks
T Garett Bolles, Utah
Notes: Bolles has a interesting story, overcoming some personal demons to become a draft prospect at the age of 24. With elite athleticism as well as room to grow on his 6-foot-5 frame, he’d be an upgrade at either tackle spot for Seattle.

27. Kansas City Chiefs
CB Quincy Wilson, Florida
Notes: Scouts are a little split on Wilson, but his size and physicality make him an attractive option for Kansas City opposite Marcus Peters. Could be a free safety down the road.

28. Dallas Cowboys

Notes: With Randy Gregory out for at least a year due to multiple failed drug tests, the Boys need some help rushing the passer. They go with Harris after he totaled 9 sacks and 12 tackles for loss in 2016.

Notes: Green Bay’s corners got exposed in the playoffs, so they reload with the addition of Tabor, whom some teams believe might be the best pure cover corner in the draft.

The NFL awarded the Seattle Seahawks two third-round selections Friday in the annual doling out of compensatory draft picks, the system that helps compensate teams who lost major free-agent contributors the previous offseason.

Seattle's two additional selections (Nos. 102 and 106 overall) brings their total number of 2017 draft picks to seven, with five in the first 106 selections. The Seahawks dealt away their 2017 fourth-round pick last year in order to move up to select Maryland defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson in the fifth-round of the 2016 draft. The Seahawks forfeited their 2017 fifth-round pick in September after an NFL investigation found Seattle violated the league's offseason workout rules.

The compensatory selections are determined by a formula that takes into account how many free agents a team loses in a given offseason versus how many they signed. A total of 32 picks are handed out each season, with a maximum of four per team.

Seattle's losses of linebacker Bruce Irvin, defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, tackle Russell Okung and guard J.R. Sweezy worked for them in the formula, while the signings of tackles J'Marcus Webb and Bradley Sowell worked against them.

SeattlePI.com sports writer Stephen Cohen talks about Seattle sports over a sandwich at Mean Sandwich in Ballard.

Four teams -- the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs -- received the maximum of four compensatory selections, while the Miami Dolphins netted three. In addition to Seattle, the Los Angeles Rams also earned two. Nine teams received one compensatory selection each.

The Seahawks received three compensatory picks in 2016 and four in 2015. The picks are eligible to be traded for the first time this year.
