The first round is over, and it is time to reflect and re-draft for the teams!

1)    New England (from Carolina):  Brooks Reed, DE/LB, Arizona

This is a little bit of a reach, but if the Pats don't trade this pick then they will be taking someone they love. The team traded the pick that turned into Clay Matthews a few years ago, and Brooks Reed is Clay 2.0 so it could be an interesting pick.

2)  Buffalo Bills: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

The Bills reportedly like Cam Newton's potential, and in many ways Kaepernick matches up to Newton. Kaepernick also has arm strength which should set him apart from Dalton for a team that needs it like Buffalo.

3)    Cincinnati Bengals: Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson

I've had Mikel Leshoure here for awhile, but Ingram fell a lot so Leshoure could too. Bowers could have gone here in the first round back in March, so a month later it could be a steal.

4)    Denver Broncos: Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State

The Broncos seem to want abundantly strong characters on the team, and Paea has a lot of great leadership qualities to justify the pick here.

5)    Cleveland Browns: Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami

By passing on Julio Jones the team admitted that they thought they could get WR talent a little later in the draft. I really think that Hankerson could be that guy.

6)    Arizona Cardinals: Akeem Ayers, DE/LB, UCLA

The Cards need a pass rusher with this pick. If it isn't a rusher it had better be an OT or a DE/DT.

7)    Tennessee Titans: Marvin Austin, DT, UNC

The team already reached on a high character QB, so why not reach on low character DT?

8)    Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Williams, CB/S, Texas

The Cowboys need to find multiple replacements in their backfield in this draft and a guy like Aaron Williams could be a great pick. He adds depth at corner, but may also end up being the best safety in the class.

9)    Washington Redskins: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU

The Skins skipped a QB early and getting a guy like Dalton would be a "steal" to some.

10)    Houston Texans: Rahim Moore, S, UCLA

If Moore is gone then I do believe that the pick will be corner or NT, but there is a very good chance that Moore could fall in the laps of the Texans.


11)    Minnesota Vikings: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame

The Vikings are reportedly looking to replace Visanthe Shiancoe through the draft and they might do it with this pick. The Vikings would much rather find a QB here but they might have to trade up to get one to fall to them at good value.

12)    Detroit Lions: Bruce Carter, OLB, UNC

Why does it seem like every UNC player has a giant question mark? Carter didn't break any rules, but does have some injury issues.

13)    San Francisco 49ers:  Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

The 49ers need to upgrade their DB core badly, and hopefully they do it with the pick here.

14)    Denver Broncos (from Miami): Justin Houston, DE, Georgia

Before his failed drug test broke a few days ago all indications were that Houston was a dominant team leader. I think he could fit in well here.

15)    St. Louis Rams: Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky

The Rams have to find a receiver in the draft to help out Sam Bradford, and Cobb is an intriguing guy for them to play with.

16)    Oakland Raiders: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
(No first rounder)

This pick could be a perfect one for the Raiders. The team needs to find a future starter at QB, and Mallett is a top-10 talent that could fall this far do to off the field rumors.

17)    Washington Redskins (from JAX): Brandon Harris, CB, Miami

The Skins desperately need to find some weapons for their backfield, and Harris is a great value here. This might be a reach on needs, but getting consistent options with good value is a huge need

18)    San Diego Chargers: Martez Wilson, MLB, Illinois

The Chargers might be able to steal a serious 3-4 MLB talent like Wilson given the needs of other teams. I'm not sold on it since they already took an Illinois player, but the talent is there to justify it.

19)    Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Stefan Wisniewski, OC/G, Temple

  Wisni isn't a perfect fit for the offensive line scheme, but his versatility and potential might make him too good to pass on for a team that needs 3-4 offensive line upgrades.

20)    New York Giants: Ben Ijalana, OT/G, Villanova

The Giants took the BPA in round one and may do again here.

21)    Indianapolis Colts: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois

The Colts need to find some new rushers to add power to the offense and Leshoure is a great guy to plug in.

22)    Philadelphia Eagles: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas

Philly rumors lead the draft right now. One is that they will trade Kolb to Arizona for Patrick Peterson when they are able to. Another is that they took Danny Watkins because of Marcus Cannon's condition. Either way the team will need maybe 2 corners from the draft so Brown could be the pick.

23)    Kansas City Chiefs: Jabaal Sheard, DE/LB, Pittsburgh

It is a little strange that the Patriots and the West Patriots (Chiefs) have a lot of the same needs this year.

24)    New England (From New Orleans): Allen Bailey, DE/DT, Miami

The Pats got this pick from the Saints for the Mark Ingram pick. The Patriots need a defensive end and getting a guy like Bailey is good value here.

25)    Seattle Seahawks: Davon House, CB, New Mexico State

The Saints always seem to need some help at CB. Maybe House would help change that.

26)    Baltimore Ravens: Greg Little, WR, UNC

The Ravens looked great at receiver going into last season, but really lacked one or two weapons throughout the year.

27)    Cleveland Browns (from ATL) : James Brewer, OT, Indiana

The Browns have so many things that they can address with this pick that it is crazy. They could look for a new RT though.

28)    New England Patriots:  Rodney Hudson, OG/C, Florida State

The Patriots need to find some young depth on the interior and Hudson could end up a steal

29)    San Diego (From the NY Jets): Titus Young, WR, Boise State

The Chargers have a major need at receiver, and I wouldn't be shocked to see them come out of the draft with two receivers.

30)    Chicago Bears: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland

Smith is the perfect WR for Chicago. He is bigger and more of a deep threat than Knox/Hester. He also love to go up into the air and up for the ball which Chicago fans LOVE.

31)    Pittsburgh Steelers: Kendrick Ellis, NT, Hampton

The Steelers could really use a future NT and Ellis is an impact player.

32)    Green Bay Packers: Orlando Franklin, OT/G, Miami

The Packers won the Super Bowl, but Alozo Highsmith won Scout of the Year. Highsmith is a Miami grad that just might have his eye on a guy like Franklin. Franklin has OT potential, but might end up being a perfect fit at OG for the team.


1) Carolina Panthers:  Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

If the Panthers want to take the BPA with this pick, they might look at Williams. The team has had some questions with team interest, motivation, and health between their backs so getting another guy to plug into the mix would help out a ton.

2) Cincinnati Bengals: Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma

The Bengals need to find some offensive line depth before they can ever expect a quarterback to sit in the pocket.

3) Denver Broncos: Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee

This is a little bit of a luxury pick, but the team cannot go defense with every pick they have, especially if someone falls to them like Stocker.

4) Buffalo Bills: Sam Acho, DE/LB, Texas

The Bills would be a much better team if they were able to find a day one at DE, a QB for the future and a pass rusher in the third.

5) Arizona Cardinals: Jurrell Casey, DE/DT, USC

Having three defensive players seems a little unlikely, but there just aren't a whole lot of great offensive players that fit their needs in this draft.

6) Kansas City Chiefs (from CLE): Quan Studivant, MLB, UNC

The Chiefs got this pick for trading back with the Browns. I think the team could be looking to add a newer, younger presence inside this year.

7) Dallas Cowboys: Jarvis Jenkins, DE/DT, Clemson

The Cowboys skipped out on a DE/DT in the first round, but may take care of the issue here.

8) New Orleans (from Wash): Mason Foster, OLB, Washington

The Saints are a team that doesn't put much value at the LB position, and unfortunately always have a need there.

9) Houston Texans: Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy

The team cannot go defense with every pick, and getting an extra weapon to plug into the offense could do wonders..

10) New England (From Minn): Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State

The Patriots have taken care of a lot of needs before this pick, but plugging in an extra runner would do some wonders for the team.

11) Detroit Lions: Chimdi Chekwa, CB, OhioState

The Lions need to find defensive backs in the 2nd or third round.

12) San Francisco 49ers: Terrell McClain, DE/DT, USF

More defensive depth for a team that had very few holes to fill.

13) Tennessee Titans: Kelvin Sheppard, MLB, LSU

The Titans need to find some fresh options inside and Sheppard is a great 3rd round value.

14) St. Louis Rams: Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State

The Rams cannot actually think that Steven Jackson can run as much as he does and stay healthy. Getting a young,  runner to plug into the mix would mean so much for the offense.

15) Miami Dolphins: Ricky Stanzi, QB, Iowa

Ricky Stanzi had some pretty good success with a good offensive line, and a great defense behind him. He might be able to translate well to the Dolphins.

16) Jacksonville Jaguars: Marcus Gilchrist, S, Clemson

The Jags really need to focus on their defensive backfield in this draft, and luckily there will be talent throughout rounds 3-5.

17) Oakland: Marcus Cannon, OT/G, TCU

Could Cannon take a major fall because of cancer? Unfortunately yes. But I do believe that a team will have done their research and found that the risk will beat the reward.

18) San Diego Chargers: Chris Carter, DE/LB, Fresno State

The team needs to find extra pass rushers, and there should be one here for the taking.

19) New York Giants: Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin

The Giants like to take BPA guys and Kendricks could potentially push the Boss for the starting spot.

20) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville

Ronde Barber is turning 2,300 years old this year, so it might be time to find a replacement, especially with the Aqib Talib trouble.

21) Philadelphia Eagles: Clint Boling, OT/G, Georgia

The Eagles need as much help on their OL as they can get and Boling is a versatile weapon.

22) Kansas City Chiefs: Sione Fua, NT, Stanford

The team has needed a legit nose tackle for awhile and Fua could be a good option here.

23) Indianapolis Colts: Tyler Sash, S, Iowa

The Colts may opt to replace one Iowa safety with another.


24) New Orleans Saints: Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

The Saints could add some major weapons on their OL to help boost the offense that much more.

25) San Diego Chargers (From Sea): DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma

The Chargers already have some talented potential at RB, but they really could use another if a good one falls to them.

26) Baltimore Ravens: Casey Matthews, MLB, Oregon

The Ravens are rumored to really like Matthews, and a 3rd round flyer for him is a good value.

27) Atlanta Falcons: Shane Vereen, RB, California

Some Falcon fans might not love this pick, but with the talent that I have had go, and with few top notch OT,TE,DE here to pick from the team might look for a value runner like Vereen.

28) New England Patriots: Dontay Moch, DE/LB, Nevada

The Pats already took a pass rusher in this mock, but I think they would take Moch if he were to fall this far to them.

29) Chicago Bears: Drake Nevis, DT, LSU

The Bears need to address this position and could if a guy like Nevis is there for the taking.

30) New York Jets: Tandon Doss, WR, Indiana

The Jets could go a number of places with this pick, but Doss may be too good of a value to pass up on here.

31) Pittsburgh Steelers: Brandon Burton, CB, Utah

The Steelers need a corner in this draft, even if it means going defense three picks in a row.

32) Green Bay Packers: Christian Ballard, DE/DT, Iowa

The Packers have few immediate needs, but getting an extra guy at end would be a good value.

33) Carolina Panthers (comp): Edmund Gates, WR, ACU

The team still has a lot of needs, but getting a talented WR here would help Cam Newton going forward.
