Pro Football Focus unveiled a 2017 Mock NFL Draft on Wednesday and has two Tigers selected in the first round.

LSU junior running back Leonard Fournette is projected to go No. 13 to the Buffalo Bills. Junior safety is projected to go No. 25 to the Houston Texans.

13. Buffalo Bills: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
This may be the best fit in the first round as head coach Rex Ryan would like nothing more than to run the ball efficiently and Fournette brings a power and speed blend to be his workhorse. He led the nation with 85 forced missed tackles in 2015 before battling injury this season, and putting him in the backfield with RB LeSean McCoy and QB Tyrod Taylor brings dynamic potential to the Buffalo offense. There are still questions about how effective Fournette can be in the pass game and that drops him a little lower than the top-10 expectations everyone has set for him.

25. Houston Texans: Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Since stepping in as a true freshman in 2014, Adams has been one of the most consistent safeties in the nation and he’s upped his game even more this season. He’s an excellent box safety, sticking his nose in there against the run while also showing the athleticism to line up in a variety roles on the defense. Adams currently owns the No. 2 overall grade among the nation’s safeties at 89.1.

Shady/Buga tandem would be nice!

Indeed it would be. Imagine the triple option, with the give/fake to fournette up the gut and the option for tyrod and shady

Tre White is going late 1st.

White is 100% a first rounder. Maybe Pocic as well.

Pocic hasn't looked that great this year

No way Leonard gets out of the top ten. Maybe even the top five.

With Elliott's success in Dallas I cannot imagine LF7 lasting this long

Dallas has the best O-Line in the NFL

Beckwith might even sneak into the 1st Rd.

I'm a huge Texans fan, the thought of getting Jamal Adams makes me hard in the pants...

Fournette at 13th is absurd and this whole rhetoric about his "passing" game being sub par is lazy scouting and regeratated nonsense from two years ago.

Upvoted for use of the word "regeratated".

no way LF7 falls all the way to #13 ...

As a Bills fan, I'd be thrilled with Leonard for sure, but we need WR's in the worst way. We already have Shady back there.

13??? Fournette is the type of running back that doesn’t come around often. 13 is laughable.

Beckwith is the best overall defensive talent in this draft. Size, speed, smarts, cover skills and the fact that the 2lesser talents the past 2 years walked in a starred at MLB on pro teams and have excelled. Pro teams will be salivatating after the combine. Watch this monster on film. He is the complete LB package.

lol at Dalvin Cook going before Fournette. Todd Gurley (with the injury problems) went 10th, then Elliot 4th. LF7 is the best talent at the position since Adrian Peterson, he will be a top 10 pick.

No way Leonard lasts to pick # 13
Reply54 months
No way, not sure who has the biggest need at RB, but they would be idiots if they passed on #7.
