Average Rank: 3.7 out of 5 (10 votes) -- Rank This Mock Draft


1 - ATL: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
ATL makes this move and HOU gets an extra 2nd in 2014 and 1st in 2015. Clowney is worth it.
2 - DET: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
DET gets their guy and St. Louis continues to build their draft pick monopoly with an extra 2nd in 2014 and a 1st in 2015. Again, Watkins and Johnson will dominate.
3 - JAX: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
JAX takes the QB with the most upside in the draft and trust Gus Bradley to take care of the defense.
4 - CLE: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
Cleveland takes BPA and waits for their QB till later in the 1st round.
5 - OAK: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Shaub is a statue and they will need o-line after losing Veldheer and missing out on Saffold.
6 - BUF: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Buffalo jumps ahead of Tampa Bay to land Evans, a combine favorite with size. The Bills send the 9th pick and the 73rd to Houston.
7 - TB: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Rather than reach for a replacement WR TB takes BPA and an immediate upgrade at LT or RT. Even with offseason o-line aquisitions, they make the safe pick.
8 - MIN: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Minnesota takes the most pro ready QB and Patterson becomes the second best receiver in the division.
9 - HOU: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Houston takes the fan favorite at a discounted price and picks up some much needed picks in the process. Johnny Manziel is a boom or bust prospect that could make Rick Smith look amazing or could cost him his job.
10 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
A little bit of a backfire in that both of the top tackles are gone, but HHCD will make that secondary scary in no time.
11 - TEN: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Pretty much chalk on this one, but Barr just makes too much sense here.
12 - NYG: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Giants win Super Bowls with two things. O-line and D-line, and they need help on both. Lewan is BPA amongst those two.
13 - STL: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
STL misses again on a top tackle, but with the depth in this years draft at the position and extra picks from the trade they can wait. Dennard gives them a LOB-ish secondary.
14 - CHI: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
CHI lucks into the top corner and BPA. They can move Peanut Tillman to safety this year or next. Either way this pick helps a needy secondary.
15 - PIT: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Pittsburgh is nothing if not consistent. They get an eventual replacement for Polomalu. Plus a lot of teams are running 3 safety sets so don't think they will pass with Mitchell newly acquired.
16 - DAL: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Somebody slips Jerry a tranquilizer and the Cowboys take BPA and a huge need in a top notch interior pass rusher who is also good against the run. He destroyed the combine as he will the NFL.
17 - BAL: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
The Ravins finally get a replacement for Ray Lewis. Plus, another Bama kid who can flat out play football.
18 - NYJ: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
Contrary to popular picks. The Jets take the 6'5" 240lb. WR with speed as opposed to the 6' 190lb. WR with speed.
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Popular pick for a reason. They NEED him. He can play OT or G and he can play now.
20 - ARI: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
ARI tends to take BPA and they can put him on the opposite side of Acho and rush the passer all day long.
21 - GB: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
Combination of BPA and need makes for a sure thing. If Ebron is still there they lock him up for a long time. Or, at least, until Rodgers leads him into a decapitating hit.
22 - SF: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
SF finally uses some of their plethora of draft picks sending the 30th, 61st, and 94th to the Eagles to take a rising star from LSU. He teams up with Crabtree, Davis, and Boldin and erases CK's excuses.
23 - KC: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
A much needed complement for Dwayne Bowe and a guy that can take some catches away from Charles and maybe prolong his career which is maybe 3 more years.
24 - CIN: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
They need to get younger at CB and they like former Horned Frogs. Plus Verret isn't afraid of anything and plays bigger than he is.
25 - SD: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
You can never have enough capable cornerbacks when you play Peyton Manning 2 sometimes 3 times a year.
26 - CLE: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Browns fans might not like this, but he has a much higher floor than other QB's in this draft. Plus, he will have a much better team around him than his brother did when entering the league.
27 - NO: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech
He is flying up draft boards for a reason. Put him in Rob Ryan's defense and he could quickly become a pro bowler.
28 - CAR: Allen Robinson, WR , Penn State
This guy is a pure WR. Size, speed, atheleticism and great hands. Exactley what Cam Newton needs right now.
29 - NE: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Amaro is the perfect fit for NE with the way they use TE's and the fact that Gronk is coming off a serious knee injury.
30 - PHI: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Philly lucks out big time with Cooks sliding do to his size. But, he is the perfect replacement for DJax who abandoned ship.
31 - DEN: Deone Bucannon, S , Washington State
Denver continues to improve a defense that went into the offseason needing some major improvement.
32 - SEA: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
Seattle is on there way to being the classic "Miss the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl." They need offensive talent or they are going to have a major drop off. Matthews has the stats and talent. Plus, with the blood line(he's Jerry Rice's cousin) he should be a 15 year starter in the NFL. A pure gym rat. Steal by the Super Bowl champs.

Excellent -- Please feel free to comment with disagreements. I think this is a more accurate draft due to the fact that trades should be flying around come may 8th.
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 4:47 PM
Average -- Rams should take Lewan at 10 and Dix at 13.
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 10:54 PM
Excellent -- I see what what you're saying but Fisher hates drafting OL early and there will be some good RT prospects in round 2.
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 12:07 PM
Excellent -- New England is more of an enigma. I think they will trade back before taking a first round tight end.
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 11:19 PM
Above Average -- Think the Eagles take Nix at 30. WR can come later
Sunday, April 27, 2014 2:22 AM
Average -- Niners moving up for a DB not a WR.I like it though.
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 9:32 PM
Excellent -- I can see the 9ers going DB or WR.
