Nothing left to do but mock, mock, mock. Just my thoughts, right or wrong- just my thoughts...
1. Kansas City: Geno Smith, QB WVU
Don't overthink this. He may not be Cam/Luck/RGIII dynamic, but he will be a good pro. That's worth it at QB.
2. Jacksonville: Damontre Moore, DE TAMU
Most active DE, and very versatile for Gus. Awful pass rush, and they need to be able to get after Luck.
3. Oakland: Star Lotulelei, DT Utah
Need position. McKenzie drafts his new BJ Raji to improve everyone else and make his defense just good enough.
4. San Diego (trade from Philadelphia): Luke Joeckel, OT TAMU
I actually felt bad for Rivers last year, the offense couldn't even function. San Diego has to make this happen or they will miss out on the top OT talent.
5. Detroit: Bjoern Werner, DE FSU
Give Rodgers and Cutler even more reason to fear the Lions D-line.
6. Cleveland: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB Oregon
Chud gets a versatile weapon for his new 3-4. He will either draft or trade for a TE early on...Book it.
7. Arizona: Eric Fisher, OT Central Michigan
Without a clear upgrade available, Bruce will try to develop what he has at QB for now. That horrendous line has to get fixed first either way.
8. Buffalo: Mike Glennon, QB NC State
Long overdue. If you wait, you're going to wait too late.
9. New York Jets: Tyler Wilson, QB Arkansas
They have no choice. Still it would be so awesome if they signed JaMarcus Russell to go with Sanchez and Tebow.
10. Tennessee: Dee Milliner, CB Alabama
BPA and need meet, plus they can get a good guard later.
11. Philadelphia (trade from San Diego): Jonathan Banks, CB Mississippi State
Eagles get what they really need at better value here to replace DRC/Nmandi.
12. Miami: Ziggy Ansah, DE Brigham Young
I say they add a dynamic guy here to pair with Cameron Wake and harass Brady. They have multiple 2nd round picks to get a WR, and Ansah is hot top 10 talent.
13. Tampa Bay: Xavier Rhodes, CB FSU
Lucky break for them to address a terrible weakness, plus he is physical for Schiano's scheme. Rhodes has 1st round size and talent. Stop mocking him to the second.
14. Carolina: Cordarelle Patterson, WR Tennessee
Gettleman does what he did all the time in New York, take a dynamic WR early on. Hurney hasn't done it in years, and it's time to draft Cam a weapon.
15. New Orleans: Jonathan Hankins, DT OSU
Nice fit and BPA for their new 3-4. That line was sad last year.
16. St. Louis: Chance Warmack, OG Alabama
Double first-round picks means you can splurge on a pick. Give Bradford every reason to succeed.
17. Pittsburgh: Kenny Vaccaro, S Texas
Quietly this is a huge hole. Polamalu has barely played the past 2 seasons, and him and Clark are 30+. Tomlin would love a leader like Vaccaro as a Steeler.
18. Dallas: Alex Okafor, DE Texas
If they really plan to run a 4-3, then it starts with a great DE. Okafor's stock is hot, and the Cowboys have seen him up close.
19. New York Giants: Sheldon Richardson, DT
If he slides to them, the Giants will run to turn in their card. His lack of ability against the run is what makes him slide past the early teams.
20. Chicago: Lane Johnson, OT Oklahoma
After 2 embarrassing years of Cutler getting killed, they have to do this before the window closes on that defense.
21. Cincinnati: Keenan Allen, WR California
They should be stoked in Cincy if he is here. His skill set is a perfect complement to AJ Green.
22. St. Louis: from Washington*: Jarvis Jones, OLB Georgia
Somebody always slides. Fairley, Bowers, Coples, etc. Medical conditions are big red flags to NFL teams, ask Frank Alexander and Cam Johnson. With multiple picks, Fisher can gamble on a monster here.
23. Minnesota: Zach Ertz, TE Stanford
Nice versatile weapon to assist the young Ponder and take the load off of Peterson. Get a WR later.
24. Indianapolis: Manti Teo, ILB Notre Dame
Pagano gets a leader to plug that defense. Teo gets to play in the state where he is worshiped. Win-win. They don't need a NT, they got Chapman coming off of IR.
25. Seattle: KeKe Mingo, OLB/DE LSU
It's already out there. They want a PASS RUSHER. It just so happens that a good one falls to them because of needs/scheme fit. WR's will be there later. I could even see Carradine going here too.
26. Green Bay: John Cooper, OG North Carolina
Don't waste Rodgers best years behind a shoddy O-line. They face some ferocious D-lines within the division.
27. Houston: Shariff Floyd, DT
Florida With some college time at DE too, I think he'd be a great 5-tech, and a value here.
28. Denver: John Jenkins, NT Georgia
Offense is pretty solid, but they are still looking for a nose to put next to Wolfe.
29. New England: Kawann Short, DT Purdue
Beli goes defense again. I see Short being a nice 5 tech for them as well.
30. Atlanta: Sam Montgomery, DE/OLB LSU
They need to get more dynamic in the pass rush. Montgomery gives them options to slow down their bi-annual torching from Cam Newton. Get a RB or TE later.
31. NY Jets (traded from San Francisco): Eddie Lacy, RB Alabama
The Jets were a play-off team when they could pound the rock. Their current guys are ineffective. When ATL passes on him, they make a power move to bring some pride back to Gang Green.
32. Baltimore: Alec Ogletree, ILB Georgia
I didn't want to give them an MLB since they did well without Lewis, but he's sitting right here. Ozzie wins again, and gets the middle of his defense more dynamic.
33. Jacksonville: Matt Barkley, QB Southern Cal
New coach + new GM = new QB. He's not as bad as he is made out to be.
34. Kansas City: DeAndre Hopkins, WR Clemson
The next Torrey Smith. First round skillset.
35. Philadelphia: Kyle Long, OT
Oregon Kelly gets his guy for the "Blur" at a much better value than Joeckel. Peters can't do it.
36. Detroit: Giovanni Bernard, RB UNC
Need meets BPA. Make those play fakes to CJ much more effective.
37. Cincinnati - from Oakland: Cornelius Carradine, DE FSU
Don't let the injury cause you to forget about him. With two second rounders Cincy can splurge here and look very smart by the end of next season.
38. Arizona: Monte Ball, RB Wisconsin
The Cards run game is shot. Remembering his Steeler days, Arians helps his young QBs with a RB.
39. San Fran (traded from New York Jets): Marcus Hunt, DE SMU
40. Tennessee: Barrett Jones, C/G Alabama
Munchak will be pumped to get "a man after his own heart" like this at a need position.
41. Buffalo: Terrance Williams, WR Baylor
Their new QB needs a new WR
42. Miami: Justin Hunter, WR Tennesse
They are able to get their WR here. He has great upside as he continues with his recovery.
43. Tampa Bay: DJ Flukker, OT Alabama
Imagine him and Doug Martin together in Schiano's run offense. Scary.
44. Carolina: Jesse Williams, NT Alabama
If the Panthers can get him here, all I can say is !!!!! I don't think all four of the top NT's will be gone before pick 43, and Williams or Jenkins could be the odd man out for the Panthers benefit.
45. Philadelphia (traded from San Diego): EJ Manuel, QB FSU
Boom! With 2 picks, Chip splurges on his guy for his style of offense. It's not Foles's skill set, and Vick is too fragile and too expensive.
46. St. Louis: Tyler Eifert, TE Notre Dame
Again, it's all about tools for Bradford. Put up or shut up time.
47. Dallas: Ryan Nassib, QB Syracuse
Put some pressure on Romo. I think by now, you know what you have in him.
48. Pittsburgh: Datone Jones, DE/DT UCLA
Now they get younger and more dynamic in the front 7.
49. New York Giants: Desmond Trufant, CB Washington
Secondary got torched too many times last year. Once again, they get a steal.
50. Chicago: Larry Warford, G Kentucky
That line is this bad. With Ertz and Eifert gone, get the guy who can match-up with Suh and Raji here.
51. Washington: Tavon Austin, WR WVU
You should be pumped for this fit if you are a Skins fan. Plenty of safeties will be available later.
52. Minnesota: Kevin Minter, ILB LSU
Frazier gets a leader in the middle of his D with 1st round talent.
53. Cincinnati: Matt Elam, S Florida
Bringing some attitude Marvin Lewis will love to the Bengals secondary.
54. Miami: Sylvester Williams, DT North Carolina
Miami is cleaning up in this draft. Lots of talent on that line now.
55. Green Bay: Quinton Patton, La Tech
Jennings and Driver out, Patton in without missing a beat.
56. Seattle: Cobi Hamilton, WR Arkansas
Now the Seahawks get their guy for Wilson. Deep threat baby.
57. Houston: Melinik Watson, OT FSU
They get a guy with great upside to develop. He could be a post-combine riser and not make it to them though.
58. Denver: Jordan Poyer, CB Oregon State
He's too much of a steal to pass up here.
59. New England: DaRick Rodgers, WR Tennessee Tech
Their need for a deep threat is embarrassing, and they don't mind the risk for the upside.
60. Atlanta: Khaseem Green, OLB Rutgers
Really getting that front 7 more dynamic on the edges. Another talented guy to go with Witherspoon. Could also reach slightly for Reed or Kelce here if Gonzalez retires.
61. San Francisco: Eric Reid, S LSU
Great value to take and develop here.
62. Baltimore: Phillip Thomas, S Fresno State
Another ball hawk to handle centerfield...why not?
I think a lot of teams got better here...but who don't you like?
If the draft goes this way, who do you take? In the comments who do you think Gettleman takes? There is a difference...
