Earlier this week, Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus released an updated NFL Mock Draft and has LSU quarterback Joe Burrow as the No. 1 overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals.

1. CINCINNATI BENGALS: QB JOE BURROW, LSU
Burrow has sustained elite play every game for half a season. He’s torched one of the best secondaries in college football. He’s got a stronger arm and quicker release that Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa. We’ve never seen a quarterback with a higher passing grade through the first seven weeks of the season. He may not be at the top of boards right now, but he’s shooting his way up there.
Renner has LSU safety Grant Delpit going No. 11 overall the Tennessee Titans and cornerback Kristian Fulton going to the Tampa Bay Bucs at No. 12.
quote:

11. TENNESSEE TITANS: S GRANT DELPIT, LSU
Delpit is built to play safety in the NFL today. Of his 356 snaps this season, 128 have come deep, 139 over the slot and 71 in the box. Him seamlessly filling all those roles and only allowing five catches so far this year is a fit for every defense in the league.

12. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: CB KRISTIAN FULTON, LSU
Fulton has already given up more yards this season than he did in all of 2018, but over half of those came in the Texas game where he rolled his ankle in the first quarter. In all other games, he’s allowed 11-of-21 targets for only 110 yards and broken up three passes. He’s still one of the most complete corners in the draft, and the Bucs still need as much help as they can get at the position.
Here's the Top 12:

1. CINCINNATI BENGALS: QB JOE BURROW, LSU
2. MIAMI DOLPHINS: EDGE CHASE YOUNG, OHIO STATE
3. WASHINGTON REDSKINS: CB JEFFREY OKUDAH, OHIO STATE
4. ATLANTA FALCONS: EDGE AJ EPENESA, IOWA
5. NEW YORK JETS: OL ANDREW THOMAS, GEORGIA
6. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: WR JERRY JEUDY, ALABAMA
7. CLEVELAND BROWNS: OL ALEX LEATHERWOOD, ALABAMA
8. MIAMI DOLPHINS (VIA STEELERS): OL TRISTAN WIRFS, IOWA
9. NEW YORK GIANTS: DI DERRICK BROWN, AUBURN
10. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS: QB TUA TAGOVAILOA, ALABAMA
11. TENNESSEE TITANS: S GRANT DELPIT, LSU
12. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: CB KRISTIAN FULTON, LSU

I didn't realize his release was so quick until the UF game. I mean this kid seems to know the playbook already and they just put the spread in this year. So that tells you the football iq this guy has.

If anything, Delpit is lower than I would expect. He may not be meeting his 2018 stats, but he is still easily the top Safety in the country.

Wish the frick Tampa would stop drafting LSU players unless it's a very high pick.

He’s got a stronger arm and quicker release that Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa. This won't sit well with the resident Tide Pod Challenged among us
