1) Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

No question here. I still think that the Colts would have potentially benefited more by trading the pick for a kings ransom and drafting a guy to develop behind Manning, but Andrew Luck isn't a bad option.
2) Washington Redskins (from STL): Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Another no brainer here. The Skins traded everything to get Griffin, so hopefully they use their late picks wisely.
3) Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC

This has become such a no brainer pick that I am starting to doubt it. The team really needs a force like Kalil, but that doesn't mean that they think the same way.
4) Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

I am very torn about this pick. It would only make sense that the Browns would take a guy with too little experience at the position to go in the top-5, but Mike Holmgren has never been part of a team that has taken a QB in the first round. He did however do well with a runner from Alabama by the name of Shaun Alexander. I know it is WAY to early for a runningback, but there really aren't a lot of top-4 options this year.

5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

This is an obvious pick given the fact that the team is loaded at receiver, but I wouldn't be shocked to see the team throw a hug wild ball here. For now I've got to go with Claiborne.

6) St Louis Rams (From WAS): Dontari Poe, DT/NT, Memphis

Sure the easy pick here is for the Rams to take Justin Blackmon or an OT, but I just am not sold on it. Jeff Fisher doesn't draft offensive linemen early, and there are enough top-40 receivers in this draft to maybe make him go with a force like Poe.

7) Jacksonville Jaguars: Justin Blackmon, WR, OK State

If Blackmon isn't here then the Jags may reach for a different receiver, but I think that there is a chance that he will be here for the taking.

8) Miami Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Miami

It only makes sense for the Dolphins to take a former WR as their QB. The team really messed up this offseason and they need to take Tannehill if he is here.

9) Carolina Panthers: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

Kirkpatrick might be the most underrated guy in the draft, and I wouldn't be shocked to see him go earlier than expected to some team.

10) Buffalo Bills: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

The Bills have some talent to play with, but I think that they would benefit so much more with a guy like Floyd who will push Stevie Johnson. 

11) Kansas City Chiefs: Quinton Coples, DE/LB, UNC

The Chiefs have a lot of needs to address, but they might be willing to go another way if a pass rusher like Coples falls which is possible given his hit and miss attitude.

12) Seattle Seahawks: Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

The pass rusher from the other USC just might be the weapon that the Seahawks have been missing.
13) Arizona Cardinals: Luke Kuechly, MLB, Boston College

This is the perfect pick for the Cardinals who need a presence and a voice on defense. 
14) Dallas Cowboys: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

The Cowboys would love to see DeCastro in a Cowboy jersey, and it is definitely possible.

15) Philadelphia Eagles: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

Is Reiff a perfect fit here? No. But he is the BPA and would be a great potential blocker for the team. He likely won't fall this far, but there are enough teams with other needs that he may tumble a bit.

16) New York Jets: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

This is about as low as I typically have a weapon like Wright falling in the draft. He is a dominate speedster that can do it all. He also is the perfect complimenting weapon the match with Tim Tebow.

17) Cincinnati (From Oak): Mark Barron, S, Alabama

There are a lot of people that really think Janoris Jenkins is a shoe in here, but I think the team could opt for a guy like Barron if he is there.

18) San Diego Chargers: Cordy Glenn, OG/T, Georgia

The Chargers need some help at both tackle and guard, and Glenn can play a little bit of both very well.

19) Chicago Bears: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Northern Alabama

I personally wouldn't trust a guy like Jenkins despite his talent, but there will be quite a few teams that will drool over his potential.

20) Tennessee Titans: Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama

The Titans need some help getting to the passer. They have some talent, but they just don't have a guy that offenses fear.

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

Brockers might go in the top-10, but I'm not sold that he (or any other DT outside of Dontari Poe) has distinguished himself from others.

22) Cleveland Browns (from ATL): Jonathon Martin, OT, Stanford

A lot of people have the Browns taking a QB with this pick, but I don't think the immediate need for a QB will be around much after the top-12 of this draft.

23) Detroit Lions: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

I think this might be the first time that I have ever in my life mocked an OT to the Lions in the first round, and it might be my last time. I won't go into how bad Jeff Backus is (today atleast), because I am mocking him here because he is the best prospect of need available.

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Dont'a Hightower, MLB, Alabama

This pick makes too much sense for the Steelers. The team cut James Farrior to save cap space, and there is always a chance that the Ravens will be looking for a young force inside.

25) Denver Broncos: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

The Broncos really need to add some good power inside and Cox is a good value here.

26) Houston Texans: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

I have preaching a receiver to the Texans for years, and if they actually pull the trigger here then they will be VERY happy.

27) New England Patriots (From NO): Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

The Patriots cannot afford to start wide receivers in the back seven, and Gilmore is a guy that can help them achieve that.

28) Green Bay Packers: Whitney Mercilus, DE/LB, Illinois

The Packers have got to turn up their defensive pressure if they want to compete in their tough division again. It is also notable that the other three teams in the division will be looking to significantly help their offensive lines in this draft.

29) Baltimore Ravens: Peter Konz, OC, Wisconsin

The team resigned Matt Birk, but Konz can play next to him for a few years in the waiting.

30) San Francisco 49ers: Josh Robinson, CB, UCF

Each and every draft there are a few guys that sneak into the first few rounds a little bit early. Josh Robinson is one that I think might get drafted early, especially with his speed.

31) New England Patriots: Devon Still, DT, Penn State

The Pats need as much power on defense as they can find. The defense isn't as bad as some give them, but it does need to add a lot of depth.

32) New York Giants: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech

The Giants very well could go with their BPA like they often do, but I think they cut Brandon Jacobs for a reason. 


1) St. Louis Rams: Alshon Jefferey, WR, South Carolina

Jefferey is a potential steal in this draft if he can stay motivated and learn to get a bit faster. He has top-5 receiver properties, but he just didn't excel in college. 

2) Indianapolis Colts: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

I hate mocking players from the same team to each other, but he might be the BPA and the best possible type of pick for a team that will be building around Andrew Luck. 

3) Minnesota Vikings: Kelechi Osemele, OG/RT, Iowa State

More offensive line for the Vikings, but that's not a bad idea with the pass rushers that Christian Ponder sees each week. I'm not sure what the offensive line would look like with these two moves, but I think it would potentially move Charlie Johnson to the right side while moving Osemele and Loadholt inside. Either way getting two studs in the draft might be the move that will help the team out the most.
4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Doug Martin, RB, Boise State

A lot of people think that the Buccaneers are REALLY looking to find a compliment to LaGarrette Blount early in the draft, and I think Doug Martin would be a good grab. He does a little bit of everything including catching the ball well.

5) Cleveland Browns: Nick Perry, DE, USC

The Browns need to get some playmaking threats on defense, and if a guy like Perry falls then they have to look at him.

6) Jacksonville Jaguars: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall

I love mocking for the Jags because after the first round there is a good chance that they will go with the BPA from a non Big-6 conference. Don't believe me? Well they haven't taken a Big-6 conference player outside of the first round in two straight drafts.

7) St. Louis (from Wash): Zach Brown, OLB, UNC

I could see the Rams go with Brown here with their first pick of the round, so getting him here would be even better.

8) Carolina Panthers: Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame

The Panthers have got to fix their secondary if they ever want to compete. Cam Newton can hang all the points in the world on teams, but it won't matter if the defense can't help him out. Hopefully a 1-2 punch like Smith and Kirkpatrick will eliminate the pain.

9) Buffalo Bills: Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss

The Bills really need to find some depth on their offensive line, and it all could start with a guy like Massie.

10) Miami Dolphins: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

The DolphLundgrens just got rid of their stud receiver for essentially nothing in return, and they must find someone that can take his place.

11) Seattle Seahawks: Kendall Reyes, DE/DT, UConn

The team doesn't have a lot of pure needs this offseason, so adding as much power and depth as possible would do wonders for the team.

12) Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Weeden, QB, OK State

I think the Chiefs will be looking to get a passer with this pick, and the most logical pick would be to get a guy that is pro ready to push Matt Cassel. If nobody can get the job done then the team will be picking early next year.

13) Dallas Cowboys: Ronnell Lewis, DE/LB, Oklahoma

On paper the Cowboys are another team that doesn't have a huge list of needs, but getting an extra pass rusher like Lewis should be on the list. 
14) Philadelphia Eagles: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

Getting a defensive tackle should come as no surprise here. Andy Reid loves getting linemen in the draft and a guy like Worthy is worth the 2nd round pick.

15) New York Jets: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson

Rex Ryan just got Tim Tebow because he saw what the Dolphin Wildcat did to his defenses a few years ago. You had better believe that he will be looking to add a Patriotic TE feel to his team at some point.

16) New England Patriots (from Oak): Andre Branch, DE/DT, Clemson

More defensive depth makes too much sense for the team, but at some point they are going to look to pick up a big offensive weapon too.

17) San Diego Chargers: Bobby Wagner, MLB, Utah State

The Chargers lost their spark (pun very much intended) on defense last year, and they must look to get that back.

18) Chicago Bears: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia

The Bears just weren't the same without Greg Olsen last season. Charles is coming off a recent DUI, but his talent is going to get him drafted.

19) Philadelphia Eagles (From AZ): Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech

 The Eagles have talent in their backfield, but they just need to find an extra weapon if they ever want to compete as a dream team.

20) Tennessee Titans: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

Sanu is a talented receiver with a lot of potential, and maybe reuniting with his former teammate Kenny Britt will push the duo to succeed.

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

The Bengals have to find a true replacement for Cedric Benson in the draft, and a guy like Lamar Miller fits the team's desires very well.

22) Detroit Lions: Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska

Dennard fills a need and adds a fiery amount of depth for the Lions

23) Atlanta Falcons: Zebrie Sanders, OT, FSU

Sanders is a guy with some injuries in his past, but he has some huge potential.

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Alameda Ta'Amu, NT, Washington

The Steelers might go for a NT like Ta'Amu in the first round, but getting one here is perfect.

25) Denver Broncos: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona

The Broncos are going to have to add some weapons for Peyton at some time, and Criner is a good value here.

26) Houston Texans: Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin

The Texans desperately need to add some depth on the inside in this draft.

27) New Orleans Saints:

28) Green Bay Packers: Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia

The Packers need some major depth in their backfield, and Minnifield has good experience at the position.

29) Baltimore Ravens: Shea McClellin, DE/LB, Boise State

The Ravens don't have a lot of needs, so getting a guy like McClellin to add some depth is lethal.

30) San Francisco 49ers: LaMichael James, RB, Oregon

Harbaugh's last collegiate coaching loss was to Oregon in 2010 when LaMichael James ran for 257 yards and three scores. He is the perfect change of pace for the team.

31) New England Patriots: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami

The Pats have added some great receivers this offseason, but they may opt to go for an extra blazer like Streeter if he is here.

32) New York Giants: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska


1) Indianapolis Colts: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson

2) Saint Louis Rams: Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California

3) Minnesota Vikings: Antonio Allen, S, South Carolina

4) Cleveland Browns: Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State

5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mychal Kendricks, MLB, California

6) Washington Redskins: Chris Polk, RB, Washington

7) Jacksonville Jaguars: Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina

8) Buffalo Bills: Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse 

9) Miami Dolphins: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

10) Miami (from CHI from CAR): Cam Johnson, DE, Virginia

11) Kansas City Chiefs: Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois

12) Seattle Seahawks: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest

13) Houston Texans (from PHI): Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State
14) New York Jets: Jonathon Massaquoi, DE/LB, Troy

15) Oakland Raiders: 

16) San Diego Chargers: Leonard Johnson, CB/S, Iowa State

17) Chicago Bears: Brandon Washington, OG, Miami

18) Arizona Cardinals: Marvin Jones, WR, California

19) Dallas Cowboys: Trumaine Johnson, CB/S, Montana

20) Tennessee Titans: Tank Carder, MLB, TCU

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia

22) Atlanta Falcons: Ladarius Green, TE, LA-Laff

23) Detroit Lions: Phillip Blake, OC, Baylor

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Casey Hayward, CB, Vanderbilt

25) Denver Broncos: Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati

26) Philadelphia Eagles (from Houston): Bernard Pierce, RB, Temple

27) New Orleans: Markelle Martin, S, OK State

28) Green Bay Packers: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin

29) Baltimore Ravens: Senio Kelemete, OG, Washington

30) San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Taylor, S, LSU

31) New England Patriots: Chris Rainey, SPECIALIST, Florida

** Rainey is a situational player that you give the ball 5-8 plays a game, but I think he will get drafted much earlier than expected because he had six blocked kicks in college. The Patriots love guys like him.

32) New York Giants: Billy Winn, DT, Boise State

33) Oakland Raiders (COMP): Dwight Bentley, CB, LA- LAFF

Round 4

1) Saint Louis Rams: Nick Foles, QB, Arizona

2) Indianapolis Colts: Dwight Jones, WR, UNC

3) Minnesota Vikings: Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa

13) Denver (from JETS): Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas
14) Washington Redskins (from OAK): George Iloka, S, Boise State

15) San Diego Chargers: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State

16) Chicago Bears: Mike Martin, DT, Michigan

18) Dallas Cowboys: Jared Crick, DE/DT, Nebraska

19) Philadelphia Eagles: Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin

27) New Orleans: Nigel Bradham, OLB, FSU

28) Green Bay Packers: Brandon Mosley, OT, Auburn

29) Buffalo (from BALT): Nick Jean-Baptiste, NT, Baylor

30) San Francisco 49ers: Michael Brewster, OC, Ohio State
