Average Rank: 3.1 out of 5 (9 votes) -- Rank This Mock Draft

1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
I think unless someone gives up the house for this pick Clowney is a lock for the number one spot. A Watt & Clowney duo is too enticing to pass up.
2 - STL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
STL could go 50 different ways here but I think the absolute surest bet in this entire draft is Jake Matthews.
3 - JAX: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
I think Jacksonville will go with the best QB they see on the board with the #3 pick. Whether or not Bortles is that guy remains to be seen. He graded out higher than any other QB in this draft so this pick makes sense and why not keep him in state?
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Reports are showing that Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has a "love affair" with Johnny Manziel. I can't tell if this is a smoke screen or not 2 days before the draft but this pick would make sense...
5 - DET: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
Reports this week show Oakland having serious interest in trading out of the #5 slot and currently have 3 interested trading partners. I think if Sammy Watkins is on the board here Detroit would make a play for trading up to #5 to get him. A Megatron, Watkins, Tate, Bush combo going 4 wide would give the Lions maybe the most exciting offense to watch since I have started watching football.
6 - ATL: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
Atlanta will be taking a pass rusher with their first pick its just a matter if they sit on their hands and stay at #6 or move up to take Clowney at #1.
7 - TB: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Part of me wants to throw Bridgewater's name here but the need at WR is just too great. However, I would look to Tampa Bay to be on the move come draft day. I would bet TB is one of the 3 trade partners that Oakland is currently talking with.
8 - MIN: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Bridgewater although smaller weight wise, his durability should not be in question. Considered by many a top 5 selection in 2013 draft in his last season at Louisville his numbers actually improved from the 2012-2013 season. He went from 27 td's 8 int's in 2012 to 31 td's and 4 int's in 13-14. I don't see how Minnesota can pass on him?
9 - BUF: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
To finish it off I think Buffalo is the 3rd trade partner in the Oakland reference earlier. I don't think Buffalo would expect Greg Robinson to fall this far since he has the biggest upside out of any OT in this draft but this is how it is panning out and Buffalo takes him at #9.
10 - OAK: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Oakland will likely receive more picks than other teams are willing to offer which will make the deal with Detroit that much sweeter. With that said Carr has impressed and grade out to be an immediate starter day 1. With Oakland's first pick I think they elect to keep Carr in the Golden State.
11 - TEN: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Titans needs to fill the hole left by Alterraun Verner. TEN can maybe look to Jimmy Graapolo or Mettenberger rd 2 or 3 to bring in and compete with Jake Locker for the starting QB spot.
12 - NYG: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
I can see the Giants going OT over WR with their first pick. Lewan is a surefire starter from day 1 and can improve that OL that struggled last year mightly.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
If Mike Evans were on the board here I would say STL would pull the trigger on him. Since he is not I think they take HaHa Clinton Dix.
14 - CHI: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Aaron Donald played in the backfield all year last year. With a Dlineof Jared Allen, Lamar Houston (which you can slide inside to play next to Donald) Stephen Paea, WIllie Young and Izzy Idonoje their Dline went from dud to stud.
15 - PIT: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
The Steelers number one need is cornerback. Dennard is arguably the best corner in the draft so don't be surprised when the Steelers call his name come draft day.
16 - DAL: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Although I think Anthony Barr should be the pick here I think safety is too big a need for the Cowboys right now.
17 - BAL: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
OT is the Ravens biggest need right now so I think they take best left on the board at OT in Zach Martin.
18 - NYJ: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
I think the Jets will go with the best playmaking WR on the board and it will come down to Odell Beckham Jr./Brandin Cooks/ Marqise Lee.
19 - PHI: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
I think Philly will be on the move and trade with Miami if Anthony Barr slips this much. They have to because Barr is that good. Although Philly needs to replace DeSean Jackson I think they can wait until Rd 2 to grab a WR.
20 - ARI: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
AZ had Jason Verrett in on a visit and of all the visits AZ had in Verrett was the top name and corner is a position of need. They need to find someone to play opposite Patrick Peterson.
21 - GB: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
Do I need to give any reasoning for this pick?
22 - MIA: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL , UCLA
Miami needs to address OL with their first pick . Su'a Filo can play both OT & OG which is always nice to have an inner changeable part that pans out as a draft pick.
23 - KC: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
They have their shifty playmaking WR already in Dwayne Bowe now they need to find a tall playmaking red zone threat to open up the offense more.
24 - CIN: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
Cincy's biggest need in is CB right now and Roby could fit in quite nice.
25 - CAR: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
With Cleveland and New Orleans as both possible landing spots for WR's in the 1st round I think Carolina has to move up to take Odell Beckham Jr.
26 - CLE: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Cleveland should take the next best WR on the board and pair him with Josh Gordon.
27 - NO: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
Shazier has done nothing but impress and will translate into an excellent olb in Rob Ryan's system.
28 - SD: Demarcus Lawrence, DE , Boise State
Lawrence gets great pressure on the QB consistenly and is an ideal 3-4 OLB or 4-3 RE.
29 - NE: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
With veteran leadership and Bill Bellichick's guidance Hageman can come in and have an unreal year playing alongside Vince Wilfork.
30 - SF: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Louies Nix is exactly what San Fran needs at NT.
31 - DEN: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
Once thought by many as one of the top OT's in the draft Kouandijo's stock has slipped quite a bit. Denver needs to invest everything they can into keeping Maninng upright so look for them to grab an OT here.
32 - SEA: Donte Moncrief, WR , Mississippi
Seattle could use some help at WR and Donte Moncrief can do just that. Who knows maybe Moncrief can become the number 1 eventually.

Above Average -- I could see most of these picks occuring.

Average -- safety will be the pick at 13 for the rams. the group of tackles is very deep and the rams can grab one in the second or third. other than that solid picks
