2/14 ddunning's Mock Draft rd3 (Round 3)
1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
The Texans need a QB that goes without saying but a talent like Clowney comes once in a life time. Pairing of Clowney and Watt is too much to pass on and they can grab a signal caller in the 2nd.
2 - STL: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
St. Louis needs to upgrade their offensive line and protect Bradford but this is a great O-line class and they can easily get a starter with their second pick in the first round. Watkins, who will be a true #1 WR, will not be there when STL picks again. STL has been searching for their #1 guys for years now but never seemed to get there. Austin is great out of the slot and will be freed up with a threat like Watkins. Bradford will have the chance to show whether he is a franchise QB.
3 - JAX: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
Mack is right up there with CLowney as far as instant impact players. Defensive minded Bradley can find a QB in round two and ease him in if Henne does not evolve.
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
I originally had them taking Bortles since Manziel would not be here but now he is and they can not pass. His talent will open his options up at reciever.
5 - OAK: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
They need to get better at LT since losing Veldheer. Robinson could be the answer at LT here for sure.
6 - ATL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Thought to be one of the best and safest picks of this class, ATL gets the OL help it needs in part thanks to the mad-dash for the QBs.
7 - TB: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Getting a big WR to go with Vincent Jackson and compensate for the loss of Mike Williams will be priority number one. This will give McCown elite targets like he had in Chicago.
8 - MIN: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
The Vikings need a QB and might luck out here and get the most NFL ready one. There is no way they can go forward another full season with Cassel and Ponder.
9 - BUF: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
The Bills have found good stop gap optios for most of their positions while their young and future players mature. They need to find an instant replacement for Byrd.
10 - DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Detroit can go FS with Pryor but have an even bigger glaring need at CB and lock up the best in this draft class.
11 - TEN: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
With the move to the 3-4 there will be a big need for OLB that can pass rush. CB is a big need but Barr is the best pass rushing OLB.
12 - NYG: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Replacement for Lival Joseph. There are mre pressing needs but nothing here without reaching, so go with the best player that fills a need.
13 - STL: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
As I stated before, STL needs to upgrade their O-Line, so here it is. Taylor can play the right side if fellow Michigan alum Long is back. And if not they can put him at LT until he does return.
14 - CHI: Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
Getting Jernigan at 14 is a steal for Chicago. He fills a positon of need, that last year was ravaged by injuries.
15 - PIT: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
One of the oldest secondaries make the Steelers very vulerable to the pass, which this league has clearly become heavy on. They could take an OL or NT like Nix, but they seriously need to get younger in at CB.
16 - BAL: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
Need for RT is number one and eventually can move to LT if coahed up, which Harbaugh can do without a doubt.
17 - DAL: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
Losing Ware and replaing him with Mincy raises concerns. Ford is an edge rusher that can pair with Selvie and get to the QB.
18 - NYJ: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
The Wr the Jets need to be the focus of their offense is here and they hope he is better than Hill. Hopefully Hill can be a slot reciever.
19 - MIA: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
THe Phins addressed a lot of their needs in FA. There are OGs and RTs to be had in the 2nd, so why not take the best offensive threat. Ebron will open up the WR core and give Tannehill a safety target while starting opposite Clay.
20 - ARI: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
They could go QB for the future her but Palmer can lead this team to the playoffs with this roster plus some upgrades. If Miami passes on Martin Cards could snag him up, if not Bridgewater is the pick.
21 - GB: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Hands down the most pressing need for GB, so here is the easiest solution. Hopefully for them it plays out this way.
22 - PHI: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
This move takes care of two positions at once. Mosley takes over at ILB and Ryans can move outside, both which needed improvement.
23 - KC: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Adding a WR like Cooks will spread the field and give openning for less talented TEs.
24 - CIN: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
Pacman is getting old and would better serve the nickle position. Verrett would upgrade the postion and add young to the DBs.
25 - SD: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
The Chargers need a point of attack. They can reach for a QB but I think this is the best option going forward.
26 - CLE: Allen Robinson, WR , Penn State
Hard to pass on a WR like Robinson to pair with Gordon and TE Cameron, giving new QB Bortles plenty of talent on that side of the ball. Expect a RB in round 2 or 3.
27 - NO: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
Grabbing a DB is a priority for NO.
28 - CAR: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
Adding another weapon for Cam is priority especially with the loss of EVERY WR HE HAS WORKER WITH! Lee will help heal that wound. No LT to make up for loss of Groos here.
29 - NE: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Brady has become use to TEs that are mismatches. Even when Gronk comes back he is prone to injury and could use another playmaker opposite him.
30 - SF: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
With Aldon Smith all but out for the year and out of favor with the 49ers, Shazier is a grinder who works hard to play the position....what Harbaugh likes.
31 - DEN: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
Another CB to go with Talib would make the defensive team almost a one year perfection, just right for Payton's last year. Superbowl shot...all or nothing!
32 - SEA: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL , UCLA
Seahawks need to fill 2 Guard spots, this is the best guard available.

Above Average -- I agree for the most part.

Above Average -- Good! But I don't see Manziel going before Bridgewater and Bortles.

Average -- I don't think Greg Robinson is on the board...but for people who don't understand what need he fills, it's LG.
Wednesday, February 19, 2014 12:38 PM
-- Thanks for the feedback. I agree with Robinson at LG, where he can learn NFL defenses and transistion to LT later. I have Manziel ahead but that is until Combine, then we'll see how O'Brien feels about the QB class.
