1/16 rstern33's Mock Draft
1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
Quarterback is a major need for the Texans. They have their pick of any of them in the draft. But I can see them trading a 2nd or a 3rd round pick for someone like Kirk Cousins or using the depth of the QB class to their advantage and take one in the 2nd. Players like Clowney don't come around very often. I think he can go here.
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Not convince this is the pick for 1 of 2 reasons. 1. They may prefer Jake Matthews. 2. They trade down and use the top end QB's as bait. I love Robinson. If they do pick here, I think he'd be a great fit opposite and eventually taking over for Jake Long.
3 - JAX: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
If they have their pick of QB's they may look at Manziel as a seat filler, but I think Bridgewater is the best QB in the draft. Bortles may be in play with his Florida ties.
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Browns may have to trade up to get Johnny Football because I think he is the guy they really want. He's the guy that the Raiders, Vikings, or Titans may really want too. He can make all the throws, there's no doubt. He needs to learn to take a sack because some of his heaves are going to be intercepted at the next level.
5 - OAK: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
I don't think they think Bortles is worth this pick. WR is just as big of a need and this QB class, being as deep as it is, can be had in the 2nd or 3rd rounds. Watkins is a legit playmaker and that's what the Raiers need. rou
6 - ATL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
The Falcons need every bit of help on the defensive side of the ball they can get. But LB isn't a great need so I don't know if Barr is the pick here. May be a bit of a reach for Justin Gilbert or Darqueeze Dennard. If they think Khalil Mack is worth the pick, they may go with him, but Matthews is a huge value at this point.
7 - TB: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
While Mack's natural position is OLB in a 3-4, he can still thrive in a 4-3 as a Sam LB. He can rush the QB, defend the run, drop in coverage. If he had gone to an SEC school, he'd be a Top 3 pick.
8 - MIN: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
The Vikings will do backflips if they see Bortles fall to them at 8. He will have an established superstart at RB, an up-and-coming stud WR (Cordarelle Patterson). He will bring a sense of things looking up for the franchise at a position which has been such a question mark for quite some time now.
9 - BUF: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Maybe the most complete defensive player in the draft, Barr will look really nice lined up next to Kiko Alonso. Barr isn't as flashy with his tools like Clowney or Mack, but he's as consistent as they come.
10 - DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Something tells me not to rule out a WR (Evans or Lee) to play opposite Calvin, but upgrading their secondary is the #1 issue. Gilbert is a physical CB who doubles as a returner. Could be a strong side starter week 1.
12 - NYG: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
If the board shapes up this way, the Giants may look to trade down, or think about a Timmy Jernigan. But I think the smartest move is to upgrade the OL. This would allow the Giants to move Beatty to RT, Pugh to G or C, and look into FA to fill the other.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
While WR would make sense here, that position is the deepest of any this draft and they may look to add a veteran instead of another youngster. The safety position is a major need for them and Clinton-Dix has been a star in a pro-caliber defense for a few years 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: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
I don't think the Steelers are sold on Emmanuel Sanders being the #2 guy as he may be more suited as a slot guy. Evans has maybe the best size/speed combo of WR's in the draft.
16 - BAL: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
If Lee has the Combine performance I believe he may have, I don't think he'll be here at this pick. But in this scenario he is, and he won't get past the Ravens.
17 - DAL: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Run stoppers. The Cowboys need run stoppers. Nix is the most disruptive DT in the draft. Timmy Jernigan may be in play as he is more acustomed to 4-3 if he falls here.
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: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Ryan Tannehill needs new, fresh faces protecting him. Martin doesn't wow you with overwhelming physical tools, he just gets the job done.
20 - ARI: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
Kouandijo had a subpar 2nd half of the season which has made his draft stock drop down to the 20's. The Cards need help on the OL as they have given up far too many sacks over the past few years.
21 - GB: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
I think Jermichael Finley has played his last game in Green Bay. ASJ is the most well rounded TE in the draft. Not as much of a pass catcher as Ebron or Amaro, but a much better blocker.
22 - PHI: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Eagles got beat over the top way too much last year. Pryor's stock is flying high right now and this may end up being considered a steal if he falls here.
23 - KC: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
While I like Benjamin more, I think Beckham fits the KC scheme better. Unless they decide to let Dwayne Bowe go, then Benjamin fits in as the big "X" receiver.
24 - CIN: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
The Bengals lack of depth at DT was prevalent when Geno Atkins went down with an injury last year. If Hageman is added to this team, it can be a scary defense.
25 - SD: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Dennard is my favorite CB in this draft. 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 - CLE: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
If this is how the draft falls, the trade of Trent Richardson looks like a steal. He is a perfect compliment to play opposite Josh Gordon and the offensive woes of the Browns may be changing to positive.
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: Jarvis Landry, WR , LSU
This will change if the Panthers are able to land a free agent WR like a Hakeem Nicks.
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: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State
Joyner will be a slot CB in the NFL and with more 3 WR sets than ever, a slot CB is a starter on most teams. Only question is his size. If he were 6', he'd be a top 20 pick due to his playmaking ability.
31 - DEN: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
After a stellar Senior Bowl, Ford has propelled himself into 1st round talk. The Broncos weren't able to muster any pass rush off the edge once Von Miller went down. Ford will be able to step in right away.
32 - SEA: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Another Senior Bowl standout, Donald is hampered by him being undersized. If he were an average DT size with his continual disruptive force getting into the backfield, he may have been the top DT in the draft.

Above Average -- not bad, but i dont see 3 tight ends going in the 1st

Above Average -- I don't think the Raiders would pass on a QB if he's there and I don't think ASF is a 1st rounder, but I'm not going to bash a mock just because I don't agree with a couple picks. You provide solid reasoning. Good job
Friday, February 21, 2014 3:30 PM
Excellent -- Solid mock I actually think 3 TEs will go. The. TE position is a miss match nightmare and these 3 kids fit the bill. The only pick I ask out is Landry to CAR. I "feel" like they will go for a big bodied Wr since they have Smith and Ginn still.

Excellent -- As a UW fan, you have ASJ too high. He is not that fast and he has tight hips. I could see him falling to the second. Aaron Donald to the hawks is a great pick. I have been calling for that for a long time!

Average -- no to kouandijo nor to the tight end from washington
Saturday, March 8, 2014 6:41 PM
Below Average -- 20 and 21 bad picks
