2/18 Ryan S' Mock Draft
1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
If the Texans can find a trade partner, they will gladly trade down a few spots if they think they can still get the right guy. If not, I don't think Case Keenum is the answer, and we know Matt Schaub isn't. Bridgewater is the most polished of all QB's in this draft.
2 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
TRADE - THE RAMS TRADE THE #2 OVERALL PICK TO THE BROWNS FOR THE #4 AND #26 OVERALL PICKS...The Browns need to make a splash at the quarterback position. Johnny Football is that splash. Some team is going to trade up to take him, so the Browns do the same, offerring 2 1st round picks. This kid doesn't have the physical intangables, but he can make every throw, and is fearless.
3 - JAX: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
3 picks, 3 QB's. I'm sure Jadeveon Clowney didn't expect this. But let's face it, Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are not the answer. Keep the kid in Florida. This kid may be a star.
4 - STL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
This is the guy the Rams really want anyway. They trade down, pick up a late 1st rounder, and still get the future long term anchor of their OL.
5 - OAK: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
Once a lock top overall pick, Clowney falls because of QB needs at the top. The Raiders top needs are QB and WR, but I don't think they will like Carr or Hundley, and the value is just too great here.
6 - ATL: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
This is the most solid defensive player in the draft. Atlanta needs help at all 3 levels on their defense. Barr will be a great fit.
7 - TB: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The Bucs can be dangerous with a healthy OL, Doug Martin, and a new Weapon for Mike Glennon. Watkins can do it all as a WR.
9 - BUF: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
The Bills won't have to look far to find one of the most disruptive pass rushers in the draft. This kid could be the next JPP.
10 - DET: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
Imagine a WR who can stretch the field, make big plays, and has star quality. Imagine him opposite Calvin Johnson. OL or CB may be in play here as well.
11 - TEN: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Alturran Verner is a nice player, but they've been missing a piece since Cortland Finnegan left. Gilbert is the top CB on my board for now. Darqueeze Dennard may leap him with a good Combine.
12 - NYG: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Talk about a dream scenario for the Giants. I doubt Robinson falls here due to trends of previous drafts, but if he does, this is a slam dunk. This will allow the Giants to move Beatty to RT and Pugh inside to G or C. Robinson is the fastest rising OL in the draft.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
The Rams need an upgrade in their secondary. It never hurts to bring in an Alabama defender. He has been a great contributor in a pro defense for quite some time now.
14 - CHI: Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
Jernigan is the best 4-3 DT in the draft. The Bears were among the worst in stopping the run last year. Seems to be a perfect fit.
15 - PIT: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Nix is the best 3-4 DT/Nose Tackle in this draft. Casey Hampton is done, Nix is a space eater who can make plays in the backfield while splitting double teams. Love his motor.
16 - BAL: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Evans reminids me a lot of Anquan Boldin, someone who was more greatly missed than they thought he was going to be. Kouandijo may be in play here as well.
17 - DAL: Stephon Tuitt, DL , Notre Dame
Run stoppers. The Cowboys need run stoppers. Tuitt played the 5 technique (3-4 DE) in college. The Cowboys may ask him to bulk up a little and move to DT in their 4-3 base defense.
18 - NYJ: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Jets would love if one of Watkins/Lee/Evans falls to them. They don't in this scenario so they take a guy who is being compared to Vernon Davis. Geno gets his safety valve.
19 - MIA: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Ryan Tannehill needs new, fresh faces protecting him. Lewan doesn't wow you with overwhelming physical tools, he just gets the job done.
21 - GB: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Doesn't have the physical tools that Gilbert has, but he makes up for it with desire mixed with a lot of talent. Taylor Lewan may make sense and plug him opposite a healthy Brian Bulaga next year.
22 - PHI: John Prior, OL , Ohio
ACTUAL PICK: CALVIN PRYOR, S, LOUISVILLE...The Eagles need major help in the secondary. They played better over the 2nd half of the season, but I think they were just playing over their heads. Pryor is a playmaker with great physical tools.
24 - KC: Michael Bennett, WR , Georgia
ACTUAL PICK: KELVIN BENJAMIN, WR, FLORIDA STATE - Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster had career years. I can't expect them to do that again. Benjamin is a physical freak. Love this marriage.
25 - SD: Loucheiz Purifoy, DB , Florida
The Chargers were 29th against the pass this year. That wasn't helped by the fact that they faced Peyton Manning twice. But that's another reason why an upgrade is needed.
26 - STL: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
The Rams get their 3rd 1st Rd pick here due to projected trade with Cle. Matthews has a great size/speed combo. Can slide right away into the X or Y.
27 - NO: Kony Ealy, DL , Missouri
This kid can flat out get to the QB. Needs some improvement in run stopping, but will fit in great the attacking, aggressive Rob Ryan defense.
28 - CAR: Carlos Hyde, RB , Ohio State
A Wide Receiver seems to be what everyone thinks they will go after. I think Hakeem Nicks ends up in Carolina. With an aging DeAngelo Williams and an oft-injured Jonathan Stewart, RB is more of a need than people think. Hyde is as productive a back there is and has run the Read Option at Ohio State.
29 - NE: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Compares physically with a former Patriot TE who is no longer playing in the league. With doubts of Rob Gronkowski's future, this makes tons of sense.
30 - SF: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
In typical 49er fashion, they take the best player available. Joe Staley isn't getting any younger and you can never go wrong with an Alabama Offensive Lineman. Needs improvement in his footwork.
31 - DEN: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
I think this will be either Moses or Vic Beasley. The Broncos have an aging Ryan Clady who is coming off a major injury so they decide to help better protect Peyton Manning.
32 - SEA: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
I really think this kid is a perfect fit for the Seahawks. Plays with an edge, attacks with a motor, and is very versatile.

Above Average -- Pretty solid mock draft here. Unlike some ppl, I like exploring trades as long as they seem plausible, which your trade does! I think GB goes after S or D-Line rather than CB, but I would be ok with Dennard. I would rather Pryor at S for GB than a CB tho
