A surprise pass-rusher lands in Top 5 with Jets

There is more uncertainty at the top of the draft than there has been in many years, making any forecast a bit of an adventure. Even the first pick is still unknown. But we’re running out of time, so here’s another guess at how the top of the draft is going to go – my latest, and perhaps last, Mock Top 10, version 6.0:

1. Jacksonville Jaguars – Georgia DE Travon Walker

Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson is the closest thing to a consensus No. 1 in this draft, and maybe 25-30 GMs would take him here. But none of them are Jaguars GM Trent Baalke, who has apparently fallen hard for the 6-foot-5, 272-pound Walker. Those that know Baalke says he favors measurables over production, which tips the scales to Walker who had an eye-popping combine with a 4.51 in the 40, a vertical jump of 35.5 inches and a three-cone drill of 6.89 seconds. He only had 9 ½ sacks in 29 starts for the Bulldogs, though. Maybe that’s why this pick isn’t locked in yet. Hutchinson and N.C. State OT Ikem “Ickey” Ekwonu are reportedly under consideration too. But Baalke is the man in charge.

2. Detroit Lions – Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson

The Lions may set a speed record for turning in their draft card if the Jaguars do indeed take Walker, and the screams from coach Dan Campbell in the Detroit war room will be heard all the way in Vegas. Taking this 6-foot-6, 265-pound hometown kid is the no-brainer pick of the draft. The Lions need a difference-making pass rusher and Hutchinson had 14 ½ sacks and 16 ½ tackles for loss for the Wolverines last season. He’s also the type of energetic and fiery player that Campbell loves, which is why he’d be the pick over Oregon’s Kayvon Thibodeaux, whose “fire” has been questioned by a variety of insiders and scouts.

3. Houston Texans – North Carolina OT Ikem ‘Ickey’ Ekwonu

The Texans, being the Texans, are a real wild card here. New GM, Nick Caserio is a bit of a mystery and they…
