Average Rank: 3.1 out of 5 (8 votes) -- Rank This Mock Draft

1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Houston is a legitimate QB away from being Superbowl champs in my eyes. They have a solid defense when healthy, an elite RB, elite WR and a decent O-Line. Bridgewater will put them over the top.
2 - STL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
If they don't decide to trade out I think this is a no brainer. Jake Long might not be available due toi injury at the start of 2014 and mathews is a 10 year starter for them. Clowney is an option at this point but with Quinn and long I just can't see it.
3 - JAX: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
If it were me I would take Clowney here but how can you sell the Jacksonville fans that Clowney is a better option at this point than Johnny Football? You can't and that's why he's the pick here.
4 - CLE: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
Cleveland is really not as far off from the playoffs as most think, they have WR Gordon, TE Jordan, a decent OL lead by Joe Thomas and asolid defense. Bortles didn't come out of nowhere I just don't think people took him that serious being from UCF, looking at him throw every pass this season he appears to be the real deal and they have Hoyer coming back from injury,
5 - OAK: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The raifders are a mess on both sides of the ball, they don't have a true #1 WR and Watkins is a game changer.
6 - ATL: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
I think this would be an ideal fit for both Clowney and the Falcons. The falcons had a real down year, many injuries occured and the pass rush was pretty much awful once again, Clowney and Umenyiora would form a very strong due.
7 - TB: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Lavonte David had an all pro year, he and Barr has the makings of a 49ers type LB core, Barr has a super high ceiling due to the fact he has only been playing LB at an elite level for a season. You would think that would be a red flag although making the switch and looking elite doing it I wouldn't hesitate to take him at all.
8 - MIN: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
Minnesota needs a QB, Derek Carr is not the answer for them. The best bet is to recoup some pass rush since they will be losing Jared Allen.
9 - BUF: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Buffalo really need to solidify the OL, for years they have been neglecting the trenches on both sides which is why they are where they are. They finally have a pass rush now it's time to secure the OL and protect manuel from more punishment. He and Cordy Glenn will be 10 year starters if everything works out right for them.
10 - DET: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
When Calvin Johnson is out of the lineup this team just plays awful, they need another option so Mathew Stafford doesn't panic and throw it to the other team on a weekly basis. Lee is a solid # 2 WR and would be a nice compliment to Johnson.
11 - TEN: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
The Titans love upgrading the OL, last year it was Levitre in FA and Warmack in the draft, this year they can address the OT position both are getting up there.
12 - NYG: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Giants need to upgrade the secondary and may need to draft another WR/RB if they lose Wilson and Nicks to injury and FA. Dennard was fantastic this season for the Spartans.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
I originally had them taking WR Mike Evans here but I just can't see how they could pass up the safety position, Quick hasn't been great but it will be his 3rd season and that will be either his breakout or bust season. Tavon Austin came on down the road.
15 - PIT: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Mike Evans gives them that Plaxico Burress type of player they have missed. He is big, solid hands, needs to work on his maturity but he'd be in a Mike Tomlin lead team, no nonsense.
16 - BAL: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The OL of the Ravens was pretty bad last season, Monroe was bad, Oher is a FA and everyone forgot how to run block. Lewan excels at run blocking and is above average pass protector.
17 - DAL: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
GM/Owner/Cowboys downfall is pretty much running this team into the ground, hopefully they do the right thing and get the only guy on their defense (Demarcus Ware) some much needed help.
18 - NYJ: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
WHo knows what QB will be the starter in 2014, heck it could be Tebow again but the lack of offensive weapons doesn't help very much but they should get Hill. Holmes back and Ebron is a special downfield threat.
20 - ARI: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Huge target with excellent hands and deceptive pass blocking skills, he could be a Jimmy Graham type of weapon in Arizona.
21 - GB: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
They lose Quarles and Finley in FA, Jenkins would be a big upgrade and another huge target for Arod to throw to.
22 - PHI: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Nix is a more natural NT in the 3-4 defense than Bennie Logan, he is a massive man that will take blockers to move him. Logan can then move to DE where he belongs.
23 - KC: Kony Ealy, DL , Missouri
Not much at all as far as a pass rush, Ealy would bring that part to an already solid KC defense since there isn't much as far as offensive help.
24 - CIN: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Both Terrance Newman and Pacman Jones are getting old in the tooth, they have Kirkpatrick but he hasn't lived up to his 1st round staus yet. Gilbert would be a good fit here in Cincy.
25 - SD: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
They upgraded the inside linebacker position last year with manti Teo and now get an absolute pass rusher/run stuffer in Shazier.
26 - CLE: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
They got the franchise QB earlier, they have Josh Gordon and James Cameron as weapons to throw to and now they have Schwartz, Thomas and Richardson blocking. A solid RB in round 2 and the browns are looking real good.
27 - NO: Vic Beasley, DE, Clemson
The Saints are going to be over the cap regardless if they restructure Brees' contract or not, they will cut some fat but adding a pass rusher like Beasley makes sense.
28 - CAR: Allen Robinson, WR , Penn State
Carolina needs another WR, Steve Smith has needed help for about 3 years now and the lack of playmaker opposite him, Robinson has excellent hands and big play ability and may take some pressure off of Smith.
29 - NE: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
The secondary has always been quite ordinary which is probably why they just can't get that 4th SB title, the defense has always let them down when it counts. Verrett is a solid upgrade and good insurance policy if Talib doesn't re-sign.
30 - SF: Stephon Tuitt, DL , Notre Dame
The 49ers can just keep on taking the best players available regardless of position and Tuitt is a big strong DE who will probably end up being a great run stuffer.
31 - SEA: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
Seattle could use some playmakers for Wilson, who knows if Harvin will bounce back and Beckham would be a nice fit.
32 - DEN: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State
Zane Beadles will most likely be gone in free agency, and here is another team that can just keep replenishing talent as long as Manning is the QB.

Above Average -- I like the write ups with each pick. I think for the most part, each team fills a need. GB will likely need a TE, but they won't get one in round 1,and won't reach for ASJ. Too many holes on the D-Line and a huge weakness at S. D-Line or Pryor at S for GB

Above Average -- I think if youre pick at 17 for the Cowboys is correct, I think they trade down for tuitt. And The Giants will not pass on Lewan
