FIRST ROUND

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


Sure there is a chance that this pick could be Eric Fisher, Sharrif Floyd, or Dion Jordan. But the first overall pick will more than likely be Joeckel.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dion Jordan, DE/LB, Oregon

The consensus pick coming out right now is Eric Fisher, and I am really tempted to mock him there, especially since there is a general bias that Fisher if one of the two great players in the draft. But I just have a hard time of believing that a team in such a bad place would take a non-sexy pick. 
 
3. Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

have discussed recently how the Raiders must find a way to trade down. Teams are drooling over Eric Fisher and can buy the rights to him at a discount from the Raiders.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah

The Eagles have narrowed their pick to four guys, and I can't really see them taking a tackle here. Chip Kelly does value his offensive line, but his offensive styling will likely focus more on getting a few great blocking tight ends and receivers later on in the draft while also picking up guys that will be great for him. Kelly scouted Lotulelei at Oregon, and I think that him getting a guy like this could be a cornerstone start to 'his' team.
 
5. Detroit Lions: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

Fisher could easily go to any of the first five teams, but I think he could become a Lion when it is all said and done.
 
6. Cleveland Browns: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

The Browns are so desperate to trade out of this pick that I could see them take a 3rd and a player like Larry English to pull the trigger from the Chargers. 
 
7. Arizona Cardinals: Barkevious Mingo, DE/LB, LSU

The Cards could go a million different ways with this pick, but I could see the team go for Mingo. He has a lot of experience, especially against read-option style teams. He might not have the upside or size of Ziggy Ansah, but I do think that he could be a major sleeper here.

8. Buffalo Bills: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia

I am not buying the Ryan Nassib rumor here. I know that they love him, but any organization that would let a coach take a 2nd round player (in my opinion forth round) 8th overall because he played for him in college deserves to fail. Oh wait, this is the Bills picks...
 
9. New York Jets: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama

It's not a sexy pick, but it does make a lot of sense.

10. Tennessee Titans: Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU

The Titans love Jonathan Cooper, but I just don't trust that they will value getting an upgrade at guard here after paying Levitre.
 
11. San Diego Chargers: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

Could he go 3rd overall? Sure. But I do think he could slide too. He has little experience, and his tape doesn't quite match him upside.

12. Miami Dolphins: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama

The Dolphins want an offensive tackle, and they might be willing to reach for one. They get their right tackle that they wanted, and the perfect bookend for Jonathan Martin.
 
13. New York Jets (from TB): Jarvis Jones, DE/LB, Georgia

The Jets really like Mingo, but I think they would be just as happy with a weapon like Jones here. 
 
14. Carolina Panthers: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

The Panthers love taking the best player available. I think it could come down to Vaccaro or Jonathan Cooper.
  

15. New Orleans Saints: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State

The Saints want a pass rusher, but if one of the premier guys doesn't fall to them then I think this will come down to Rhodes, Sheldon Richardson, or Cooper.

16. St. Louis Rams: Jonathan Cooper, OG/C, UNC

In retrospect this might be late for Cooper to go, but it could also be dead on. He plays a luxury position that teams may pass up on early. The Rams make the right move here because every team between this pick and there next one is going to consider the luxury.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee

Usually the Steelers take the player that falls in the draft, but I don't have a deep faller here. If this happens then I think they will look at Patterson, Eifert, and a pass rusher that they may reach on.
 
18. Dallas Cowboys: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

The Cowboys have a lot of options with this pick, but I think they will look to add a new weapon for their new 4-3 front.
 
19. New York Giants: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

The Giants always seem to find a player that falls in the draft, and this is my prediction this year. Richardson would be considered a steal here, but I see this as a good spot for Richardson.
 
20. Chicago Bears: D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston

Five of the top six corners for the Bears are free agents after 2013, so I truly think that this pick will be a corner. I think that Hayden is the perfect pick here because he won't be completely needed to start until potentially 2014.
 
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Jonathan Cyprien, S, FIU

The Bengals don't have a lot of pressing needs, but so look for some upgrades here. I think the team would love to get a guy like Cyprien to add that extra threat in the backfield.

22. St Louis Rams (From Washington): Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

This might still be a reach for Ogletree, but I think he is an option here. He can play a number of LB positions, and could even fill in at safety on certain downs.

23. Minnesota Vikings: Marcus Trufant, CB, Washington

The Vikings have a few positions of need in this draft, but I don't think they go receiver with one of their first round picks. They have many other needs, and they paid Greg Jennings to do a lot.
 
24. Indianapolis Colts: Tank Carradine, DE/LB, Florida State

The Colts could go one of a million places with this pick, but I think a pass rusher could be one of them.

25. Minnesota Vikings (From Sea): Manti Te'o, MLB, Notre Dame


The team needs a MLB, and Te'o just feels like a Viking. 
 
26. Green Bay Packers: Justin Pugh, OT/G/C, Syracuse

Pugh can be plugged in just about anywhere which is perfect for these Packers.

27. Houston Texans: Margus Hunt, DE/LB/DT, SMU

This pick scares me. Hunt to me feels like JJ Watt kind of pass rusher, and his impact in terms of blocking passes is terrifying. Oh and he also holds the NCAA record for most blocked kicks.

28. Denver Broncos: Tank Carradine, DE/DT, UCLA

The Broncos are going to see who falls to them, and they might consider Carradine a steal.
 
29: New England Patriots: Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

Taylor has pro bowl potential, and I think he would shine on a team like that Pats.

30. Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame

Eifert could find himself in the top-10, or he could fall out to about here. He plays a position that is growing in terms of potential, but there just aren't many teams that have a dire need for a tight end. This would be his best landing spot anyways.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Eric Reid, S, LSU

The 49ers need to add some depth throughout their defense, and getting an impact guy with potential defines the 49ers.

32. Baltimore Ravens: Menelik Watson, OT, FSU

Big name school that fills a need with good value. Done and done.
