Average Rank: 4.1 out of 5 (7 votes) -- Rank This Mock Draft


1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
I can't see this pick going any other way. There's lots of talk about a potential trade, and that can still happen, but for now I'm keeping Houston in this slot.
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
If the Rams don't trade this pick then you can take it to the bank that they will go Robinson. They should be regretting the contract they handed out to Jake Long a year ago, already.
3 - BUF: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
TRADE: This will be one of the pressure-points of the draft. With Cleveland and Oakland coming up, this is the spot to trade up for a team that really wants Watkins.
4 - ATL: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
TRADE: With Mack sliding out of the top three it creats an ideal scenario for Atlanta, who desperately needs some defensive help.
5 - OAK: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Oakland can go in a number of directions here. Mike Evans and Jake Matthews were the other considerations, but the truth is that Reggie McKenzie is on the hot seat and needs an immediate impact. Donald is the best player available in my opinion. He might be the most underrated player in the entire class.
6 - CLE: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
What a great addition Mike Evans would be to the Cleveland offense. They already the most talented Wide Receiver in the game and a play-making Tight End. This gives them three big targets.
7 - TB: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Lovie Smith has the luxury of taking a quarterback that can sit for a year while Josh McCown starts. I think this is a good opportunity for Tampa Bay if they're giving up on Mike Glennon.
8 - NYG: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
TRADE: The Giants see their guy falling and know that it's right now or never if they want Matthews. This would be quite an addition for New York, their offensive line play was terrible last year. William Beatty is not a franchise Left Tackle.
9 - JAX: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
With Chad Henne penciled in as the starter right now, the Jaguars need to do something about the Quarterback position. I'm not sure if Bortles would be able to step in as a rookie but they don't need him to. This pick is with 2015 and beyond, in mind.
10 - NYJ: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
TRADE: There's a lot of interest in Beckham Jr. and I expect the Jets to make this move to secure the guy they have wanted all along. Obviously they need weapons so this move is a good one for New York.
11 - TEN: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
In my eyes this is the best Corner in this draft, regardless of what everyone else is saying. Now that Alteraunn Verner is in Tampa Bay, the Titans can use Fuller.
12 - MIN: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Mike Zimmer is a defensive-minded coach and I think Barr would be a nice fit in his defense. Whether he plays as a classic 6-tech in their even front or if he is used the way James Harrison was in Cinncinati.
13 - CIN: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
TRADE: This would be considered a big move with the Bengals going up 11 spots to get Lewan. Andrew Whitworth is almost finished in this league and the team lost Anthony Collins in free agency to Tampa Bay. Lewan fits into the hard-nosed AFC North nicely.
14 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
TRADE: Miami panics and moves up to get their guy. It's obvious that Miami needs to feed the pipeline in the trenches, and Martin is as high character as it gets.
15 - PIT: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Great fit for Pittsburgh. They need a young talented Cornerback with Ike Taylor on his back legs. Dennard is an edgy corner that will get up in your face and press. Sounds like a Steeler.
16 - GB: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
TRADE: The Packers see a couple of teams ahead of them that might be interested in taking Mosely, so they get aggressive and go up to get him.
17 - SF: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
TRADE: A little unexpectedly Gilbert is still here at pick 17 and it's the perfect opportunity for San Francisco to get aggressive. Cornerback is a big need for the team with Carlos Rogers gone, Chris Culliver coming off injury and having legal problems, and Tarrell Brown now in Oakland.
18 - DET: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Detroit barely misses out on Gilbert but they get a nice consolation prize. Safety is a big need for the team so grabbing a top-tier DB is crucial for them.
19 - CHI: Stephon Tuitt, DL , Notre Dame
The Bears can use an addition to their front-four and Tuitt comes with a lot of upside. Word is that Tuitt is back to looking like the 2012 version after shedding weight. If that's the case then this will be looked back on as a steal a couple of years from now.
20 - ARI: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
After slipping a little bit because of a reported narcisistic personality, the Cardinals upgrade their Tight End position in a big way. Ebron is explosive and Arizona isn't a power running team so they will be able to cover up Ebron's blocking deficiencies.
21 - DAL: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
One of the biggest risks in the entire class, Hageman is truly boom or bust. The Cowboys need help upfront and while it doesn't come in the form of your typical 3-tech, I still think that Hageman has enough special traits that can make him a versatile player along their line and an every down player.
22 - PHI: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Coincidently, Cooks is a lot like Desean Jackson. He would give them a very nice complement to Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper.
23 - KC: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
This class is deep at Receiver but not so much at Linebacker. The opportunity to add a guy like Shazier is way too big to pass on.
24 - STL: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
St. Louis cut Cortland Finnegan this offseason so they replace him with Verrett, who plays a lot like him. Verrett brings a fast aggressive physical approach to an already talented defense.
25 - SD: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
Cornerback is the Chargers biggest need and they get an elite level Corner when it comes to talent. When you get a player with Roby's type of athleticism and talent, you get a chance at something special.
26 - CLE: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
It's Bridgewater, not Carr despite the reports that the team loves the latter. When you dig into Carr you get someone that dominated lower level competition but when he played USC in his bowl game he struggled big time. That concerns me a lot and I'm sure it concerns scouts and GMs too.
27 - NO: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech
I think there is going to be some surprises in round 1 when it comes to name recognition but Attaochu can play ball. The Saints have to be thinking about upgrading their pass rush and this pick will give them that.
28 - WAS: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
TRADE: Washington moves in while the Panthers move back to pick 34 and get Marquise Lee (WR/USC). The Redskins have been trying to fill that Right Tackle role for some time now and they get it here. For the record, I don't expect Moses to last this long tomorrow night but I couldn't find a spot for him.
29 - NE: Demarcus Lawrence, DE , Boise State
The Patriots didn't lay a finger on Peyton Manning in the AFC Championship game and I'm getting sick of it. They are lacking an electric speed guy coming off the corner and I think Lawrence would be a huge find for the team. The Patriots had Lawrence scheduled to come be one of their 30 in-house visits recently but called him right before and cancelled. The team did the same thing in 2011 when they didn't want teams to know how interested they were in Nate Solder. This could be de ja vu.
30 - BAL: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
Baltimore needs an in-line Tight End to pair with Dennis Pitta. In 2010 they drafted Ed Dickson on day 2 but he has been very disappointing. This pick gives Joe Flacco another weapon and will make them tougher to defend.
31 - MIN: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
TRADE: Minnesota hops back into the 1st to get their Quarterback while the Broncos trade down to pick 40 and get Stanley Jean-Baptiste (CB/Nebraska). The Vikings are often aggressive on draft day and here they are able to take the picks acquired from the Giants and get back into the 1st round before Houston or Oakland beats them to it.
32 - SEA: Dominique Easley, DT, Florida
The Seahawks are never content with their pass rush for some reason. They always want more so I gave them that here. They lost Clinton McDonald, Red Bryant and Chris Clemons this offseason so adding to the Defensive Line makes sense for them.

Average -- Don't see Falcons passing on a top left tackle to protect Ryan let alone trading up. Are you a Bengals fan by any chance?
