Recently two of our featured writers got together and collaborated on a mock draft together. When on person makes a mock draft you tend to see a lot of the same picks come together, but every collaboration brings out a lot of fresh and new scenarios to watch for. With each pick I will give my own analysis to their picks.

1. Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

Harman: No shock with this pick. The Chiefs need some line help if they want to give Alex Smith any chance.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
 
Harman: This isn't a pick that you see in many mocks, but it wouldn't be a huge shocker. It takes one team to love a player with Warren Sapp potential.
 
3. Oakland Raiders: Dion Jordan, DE/LB, Oregon

Harman: Many analysts don't have this pick mocked often, but I don't know why. Jordan is the cleanest pass rusher in the draft, and can play a lot of different positions.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Star Lotulelei, DE/NT, Utah

Harman: This is another pick that could be dead on come draft day. The team needs a player on their line for their new 3-4 defense, and he can play just about anywhere on day one.
 
5. Detroit Lions: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

Harman: This is the guy that the Lions want to fall to him, and it doesn't take much to do so.
 
6. Cleveland Browns: Ziggy Ansah, DE/LB, BYU

Harman: Mike Lombardi likes guys with experience, but if they aren't able to trade out of this pick then you had better believe that they will consider the lethal potential of Ansah.

7. Arizona Cardinals: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

Harman: The Cards aren't as much of a slam dunk to take a linemen like many think, but you had better bet that they would love to have Johnson on their side protection Carson Palmer.

8. Buffalo Bills: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama

Harman: The Bills lost Andy Levitre this offseason, and replacing him with a potential Hall of Famer is a good pick. Personally I would go with Geno Smith or Tavon Austin though if I were the Bills.

9. New York Jets: Barkevious Mingo, DE/LB, LSU

Harman: This is a slam dunk pick. The Jets reportedly love Mingo, and they will get one of a few studs with their other pick.

10. Tennessee Titans:  Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

Harman: This might seem high for a safety to some, but those same people might not understand how much the safety position is improving in terms of value due to the evolution of the slot receiver & tight end.

11. San Diego Chargers: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama

Harman: I personally would never take a RT with this pick, but he could go as high as 6 to the Browns when it is all said and done.

12. Miami Dolphins: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

Harman: Milliner has the potential to be a steal here with this pick, especially given the fact that I could start for the Dolphins at corner.
 
13. New York Jets (from TB): Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

Harman: Having a second 1st round pick makes this pick a good one. They find a QB that might actually want to win football games. This pick also makes a scapegoat for Rex Ryan if they have another bad season.
 
14. Carolina Panthers: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
  

Harman: I think that there is about a 90% chance that Tavon Austin will go before Patterson, but I could see a team like the Panthers take the bigger receiver.
 
15. New Orleans Saints: Sheldon Richardson, DE/DT, Missouri

Harman: The Saints need to start building tools for their new 3-4 defense, and Richardson has good potential to be a solid end.

16. St. Louis Rams: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia

Harman: If the Rams are able to actually land Austin then they will be infinitely lucky. I think Austin goes earlier than this, but I also am ignorant in thinking that every team will value a gadget-slot receiver.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jarvis Jones, DE/LB, Georgia

Harman: I hate this pick, because it always seems like the Steelers are able to land elite players like Jones. 
 
18. Dallas Cowboys: Alec Ogletree, MLB, Georgia

Harman: There is talk about Ogletree moving to outside linebacker in the pros. Either way the Cowboys need to add an extra linebacker into their new 4-3 defense.
 
19. New York Giants: Datone Jones, DE/DT, UCLA

Harman: I don't hate this pick because if fills a need. But the Giants always go with the best player available, and I don't think that Jones is that guy.

 
20. Chicago Bears: Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

Harman: This is the first pick that I just don't see would truly happen. The Bears drafted Shea McClellin last year, and they already have 7-sacks Corey Wootton opposite of Julius Peppers. It could happen if the team thinks that he is the absolute best player here though. 
 
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Eric Reid, S, LSU

Harman: No complaints here. I don't value Reid this high, but he is the perfect boom or bust player that the Bengals like.

22. St Louis Rams (From Washington): Sylvester Williams, DT, UNC

Harman: I like this pick, but I think that the Rams could do better. I personally would beg for Eddie Lacy, Jonathan Cooper, or Tyler Eifert here. With that said, Williams would definitely help the Rams grow.
 
23. Minnesota Vikings: Marcus Trufant, CB, Washington

Harman: This is a pick that I like. Trufant is a very safe & clean pick which matches the Viking's defense perfectly.
 
24. Indianapolis Colts: Jonathan Cooper, OG/C, UNC

Harman: No way does Cooper last this long. There are some teams that like him more than Warmack, and he might go as early as 9 to the Jets. If he does somehow fall though I think that this is the perfect fit for him.

25. Minnesota Vikings (From Sea): Jessie Williams, DT, Alabama

 
Harman: Each and every year there are a few picks that sneak into the first round, and I could see Williams be the guy. He is a mauling monster that some teams will love.
 
26. Green Bay Packers: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

Harman: The last thing that the Packers need is to gobble up a running back that could actually help them get better on offense.

27. Houston Texans: Keenan Allen, WR, Cal

Harman: This is a pick that I hope the Texans pull. They have needed one (or two) great receivers to compliment Andre Johnson, and Allen is an insanely safe guy that they would love.

28. Denver Broncos: Bjoern Werner, DE, FSU

Harman: This is one of those picks that I think could be a slam dunk for the Broncos here. Werner could take a fall in the draft, and he could be a steal here.

 
29: New England Patriots: Tank Caradine, DE/DT, FSU

Harman: The Patriots could take one of a million different guys with this pick, and this Tank is one of them.
 
30. Atlanta Falcons: Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

Harman: I haven't though about Te'o to the Falcons much this year, but I kind of like it. He doesn't fill a huge need, but he will definitely become a huge character for a team that loves high character players.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Johnathan Hankins, DT/NT, Ohio State

Harman: This is another guy that might be able to sneak into the first round for a team that loves his potential, especially if a team likes him as a zero tech.
 
32. Baltimore Ravens: Kevin Minter, MLB, LSU

Harman: Great last pick of the round. The Raven get a good value while also filling a need.
