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

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): Justin Blackmon, WR, OK State

This pick should feel like a no brainer to me, but I am just 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 wild card pick, but the odds are stacked for Blackmon.

7) Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

I have been going against Floyd this early for the whole season, but I've come to realize that there will be a few teams that ignore the off the field problems and the injury prone issues when it comes to Floyd. Gene Smith NEVER drafts the guy that is penciled in, and Melvin Ingram is that guy right now.

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: Luke Kuechly, MLB, Boston College

Kuechly has so much buzz about him that I think he is a huge top-10 threat. The defense needs a leader to command the troops, and Kuechly is a perfect candidate.

10) Buffalo Bills: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

This pick makes too much sense which does nothing but make me doubt that it will ever happen. The team desperately needs a left tackle, but the team has been scared to take a 1st round tackle since Mike Williams.

11) Kansas City Chiefs: Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis


The Chiefs have a lot of needs to address, and getting Poe here might fill their biggest hole. I love David DeCastro going here, but I'm just not sold on it.

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: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

This is a bit of a luxury pick, but getting the a guard at this level is worth it here.
 
14) Dallas Cowboys: Mark Barron, S, Alabama

The Cowboys reportedly desperately need safety help, and getting a do-it all kind of guy would be the perfect weapon for a team that has been a secondary away from a top defense for awhile.

15) Philadelphia Eagles: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

Cox is a guy rising up the boards, and he could go as early as 6th to the Rams. If he falls past the Panthers though then he could tumble.

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): Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama


This very well could be Stephon Gilmore, but I think that the Bengals would go with a solid talent like Dre Kirkpatrick here.

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: Quinton Coples, DE, UNC

The Bears were pushing for a guy like Mario Williams to play across from Peppers. Coples is no Super Mario, but he might be a beary good pick.

20) Tennessee Titans: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

The Titans need to find a replacement at corner and Gilmore is a tough guy with good experience.

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois

The Bengals don't have a severe need at end, but they just might bite if a guy like Mercilus is there for them to add to the roster. A team can never have too many pass rushers.

22) Cleveland Browns (from ATL): Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama

I hate giving a team two players from the same team, but when there are so many players from one team it can be hard. I think the Browns will keep their sensors open for a pass rusher and Upshaw has a lot of potential.

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

I got some hate for mocking Adams (the first OT that I have ever mocked to the Lions ever because there is an ok chance) here the last time, but I'm sticking with it. The Lions too often go with the best player on their boards, and outside of Michael Brockers it just might be a guy like Mike Adams. 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, but Mike Adams actually compares to Backus in quite a few ways.

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: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU


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

26) Houston Texans: Jonathon Martin, OT, Stanford

I have preaching a receiver to the Texans for years, and they have never pulled the trigger. I would love to see what Stephen Hill could do next to Andre Johnson, but I think the Texans go a different way if there is a better value on the board.

27) New England Patriots (From NO): Nick Perry, DE/LB, USC


I wanted to give the Packers Chandler Jones or Janoris Jenkins, but the Patriots typically draft guys that they haven't interviewed with. Jenkins is one of those guys, and Jones only met them at the combine. Perry on the other hand had an official visit to match up with some talks at his pro day.

28) Green Bay Packers: Chandler Jones, DE/LB, Syracuse

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: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

I don't think that this as big of a need as advertised, but Hill is a good value here that adds another blazer in the backfield.

30) San Francisco 49ers: Peter Konz, OC (OG), Wisconsin

Jonathon Goodwin will be 34 at the end of the year, and he will need a replacement over the next few years. Konz can slide into the RG spot until then.

31) New England Patriots: Derek Wolfe, DT (DE), Cincinnati

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: Kendall Reyes, DT, UConn

The Giants very well could go with their BPA like they often do, and a guy like Reyes might just be that guy. 

ROUND 2

1) St. Louis Rams: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

Worthy is an interesting prospect that plays like a top-12 pick sometimes while also disappearing like a 4th rounder as well.

2) Indianapolis Colts: Shea McClellin, DE/LB, Boise State

McClellin is a hot prospect right now that could go in the top-20, but he could also get washed down to this range by other pass rushers.

3) Minnesota Vikings: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina


The Vikings could opt for a corner here as well, but they might be better off getting a huge potential threat like Jeffery to help out Ponder. Christian Ponder does not have an arm that requires multiple blazing receivers, and getting a monster with some possession skills could do wonders. 
  

4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska

The Bucs really need to find some options at linebacker because they are very thin.

5) Cleveland Browns: Janoris Jenkins, CB, N. Alabama

The Browns will be looking at either a RB, WR, CB or QB with the 4th pick in the draft. Getting a potential steal (or simple bust) like Jenkins here is well worth the risk.

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): Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss

Jeff Fisher doesn't often take offensive linemen early, but he would have to be insane to not find someone in the first few rounds to protect Sam Bradford.

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. 

9) Buffalo Bills: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

The Bills tried turning up the TE spot last year with Scott Chandler, but he was so hit-or-miss that he could be replaced with a stud like Fleener.

10) Miami Dolphins: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

The DolphLundgrens draft their second receiver in the draft here. Maybe Randle can play QB too.

11) Seattle Seahawks: Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin


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: Andre Branch, DE/LB, Clemson

On paper the Cowboys are another team that doesn't have a huge list of needs, but getting an extra pass rusher like Branch should be on the list. 
 
14) Philadelphia Eagles: Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois

The Eagles just spent a lot of Demetrius Bell, but they really need to add a lot of depth on their line. Allen is a guy that can play either tackle spot, and possibly even fill in at guard if needed.

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): Doug Martin, RB, Boise State

The Patriots drafted some rushers last year, but they reportedly like Doug Martin who does a little bit of everything.

17) San Diego Chargers: Ronnell Lewis, DE/LB, Oklahoma


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

18) Chicago Bears: Zebrie Sanders, OT/G, Florida State

The Bears won't go far into the playoffs if they don't have their quarterback(s) healthy. Part of the problem is that the team allows about one sack per play. Ok, maybe not one per play, but it sure felt like it.

19) Philadelphia Eagles (From AZ): Josh Robinson, CB, UCF
 
 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: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech

Lions fans will hate this move, but I love it for a few reasons. First Jahvid Best can only handle 10-15 carries a game to avoid injury. Kevin Smith's no better. Mikel Leshoure is coming off an Achilles tear and has had two marijuana charges this offseason. The team needs a consistent guy, and Wilson's possibly the BPA here too.

23) Atlanta Falcons: Mitchell Schwartz, OT, Cal

This might be a bit early for Schwartz, but he is one of the last guys with some LT 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: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State


The Broncos are going to have to add some weapons for Peyton at some time, and Quick is a guy booming up some boards right now.

26) Houston Texans: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona

The Texans desperately need to add some depth at receiver in this draft.

27) New Orleans Saints:


28) Green Bay Packers: Brandon Thompson, DE/DT, Clemson

The Packers may opt to go a few different ways, but Thompson is a great value here that will improve the run and pass defense as a whole.

29) Baltimore Ravens: Mychal Kendricks, MLB, California

The Ravens don't have a lot of needs, so getting a guy like Kendricks could add a lethal piece of depth into the middle of the defense.
 
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: Trumaine Johnson, CB/S, Montana

The Pats have so many needs that it is laughable that they are the favorites to win the Super Bowl next year. The team would really love to get a guy like Trumaine Johnson that projects as a nickel corner and a full time safety.

32) New York Giants: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia

The Giants usually try to load up on value in the draft, and a guy like Charles is a huge value that fills a need.

ROUND 3

1) Indianapolis Colts: Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska

2) Saint Louis Rams: Zach Brown, OLB, UNC

3) Minnesota Vikings: Casey Hayward, CB, Vanderbilt


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

5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati

6) Washington Redskins: Kelechi Osemele, OG/RT, Iowa State

7) Jacksonville Jaguars: Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State

8) Buffalo Bills: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma 

9) Miami Dolphins: Dwight Bentley, CB, LA-LAFF

10) Miami (from CHI from CAR): Devon Still, DE/DT, Penn State

11) Kansas City Chiefs: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin


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: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami

17) Chicago Bears: Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia


18) Arizona Cardinals: Nick Foles, QB, Arizona

19) Dallas Cowboys: Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas
 
20) Tennessee Titans: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Bobby Wagner, MLB, Utah State

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

23) Detroit Lions: Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Chris Polk, RB, Washington

25) Denver Broncos: Cam Johnson, DE, Virginia


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

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


28) Green Bay Packers: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia

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: Marvin Jones, WR

33) Oakland Raiders (COMP): Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina

Round 4

1) Saint Louis Rams: Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas

2) Indianapolis Colts: Dwight Jones, WR, UNC

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


4) Houston Texans (from PHI from TB): Bruce Irvin, DE/LB, West Virginia

5) Cleveland Browns: Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa

6) Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Steed, CB, Furman

7) Washington Redskins: Josh Chapman, NT, Alabama

8) Miami Dolphins: Andrew Datko, OT, FSU

9) Carolina Panthers: James Brown, OT, Troy

10) Buffalo Bills: Brandon Washington, OG, Miami

11) Seattle Seahawks: Nate Potter, OT, Boise State


12) Kansas City Chiefs: Terrance Gannaway, RB/FB, Baylor

13) Denver (from JETS): George Iloka, S, Boise State
 
14) Washington Redskins (from OAK): T.Y Hilton, WR, FIU

15) San Diego Chargers: Tank Carder, MLB, TCU

16) Chicago Bears: Phillip Blake, OC/G, Baylor

17) Arizona Cardinals: Billy Winn, DE/DT, Boise State


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

19) Philadelphia Eagles: Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin

20) Tennessee Titans: Tony Bergstrom, OG, Utah
 
21) Cincinnati Bengals: Sean Spence, OLB, Miami

22) Detroit Lions: Vontaze Burflict, MLB, Arizona State

23) Cleveland Browns (From ATL): Brandon Brooks, OG, Miami-OH

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Matt McCants, OT, UAB

25) Denver Broncos: Audie Cole, MLB, NC State


26) Houston Texans: Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa

27) New Orleans: Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State


Ok, so it would be kind of funny to see 6'0 Kellen Moore go to the Saints, but this pick makes too much sense. If I were an NFL GM I would honestly take a major look at Kellen Moore about 50 picks ago because you are getting the most polished NFL QB in the draft at a steal. Moore is a top-5 pick, but his stock is low because of his height and because of his relative arm strength. If you've seen his tape though you would know that his accuracy is so good that he doesn't need the arm strength that Jay Cutler needs. At worst the Saints are getting a guy that can learn and grow behind Brees. 

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

29) Buffalo (from BALT): Leonard Johnson, CB/S, Iowa State

30) San Francisco 49ers: Ben Jones, OC, Georgia

31) New England Patriots: Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri

32) New York Giants: Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State

33) Minnesota Vikings (COMP): Nigel Bradham, OLB, FSU

34) Oakland Raiders (COMP): Tim Benford, WR, Tennessee Tech

35) Baltimore Ravens (COMP): DeQuan Menzie, CB, Alabama

36) New York Giants (COMP): Mike Martin, DT, Michigan

37) Green Bay (COMP): Ronnie Hillman, RB, SD State

38) Green Bay (COMP): Nick Jean Baptiste, NT, Baylor

39) Minnesota (COMP): Keenan Robinson, OLB, Texas

40) Dallas (COMP): Levy Adcock, OT, OK State
