Except for the Tennessee pick, I think this is a decent mock. Steal of the Entire Draft: Aaron Murray; with an honorable mention A.J. McCarron. I'm just a casual fan having some fun, gearing up for tonight. Enjoy the next few days!!! For the many huddled-franchises such as my J-E-T-S--this is as good as it's gonna get. :-)

1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
Vestigal memories of a cat called Mario Williams. Secondary choice: Johnny Football, probably via Trade
2 - STL: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
I think they'll trade this pick. Someone will move up to get BPA. Not sure Jeff Fisher would take a wideout this high. Depending where they move down, should still be able to snag a top WR in Evans, Lee, or possibly Jordan Matthews; and, of course, someone to compete at OT.
3 - JAX: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Seems like the safe, stupid Jacksonville thing to do. Ya know: to protect Chad Henne, so he can throw plenty of INTs...
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Tim Tebow; err, Eddie Gaedel; err... you get the idea.
5 - OAK: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
Bortles, or Bridgewater; Bortles, or Bridgewater... the Raidas' go for the fellow whose built like a brick... house, rather than the under-sized, skinny QB with a golden arm.
6 - ATL: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
Could go Khalil Mack, or Anthony Barr, or Jake Matthews. My gut says Mack, but it makes too much sense to pass on the heir-apparent to Tony Gonzalez.
7 - TB: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Jake Matthews or Dennard would certainly make sense. But how can you pass on a specimen like Evans? Especially with another WR in trouble...
8 - MIN: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
The Jake Matthews slide ends; the Teddy Bridgewater one begins. Obviously, if Bortles is available, they'll pick him. Dark Horse: Derrek Carr.
9 - BUF: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
BPA, in a typically Buffalo-not-going-to-help-them-win kinda way.
10 - DET: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Count themselves lucky he's still available.
11 - TEN: Carlos Hyde, RB , Ohio State
This is my shocker: trying to regain the ghost of a certain OSU-RB past.
12 - NYG: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
As much as my Tennessee pick is a one-in-a-million, this one's a lock.
13 - STL: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Coach loves the D. Secondary pick: Calvin Pryor or Clinton-Dix. Darkhorse: Terry Bridgewater
14 - CHI: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Should have been Aaron Donald, but Da Bears get mesmerized by the eater of space. The second coming of ex NFC-Norseman *Jerry Ball*.
15 - PIT: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Top 5 talent, and perhaps the steal of the first round.
16 - BAL: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
Flacco had *Zach Martin* already penciled in, but a player like Mosley's too good to pass up.
17 - DAL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Secondary pick: Timmy Jernigan; darkhorse: Eric Ebronif he somehow drops.
18 - NYJ: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
This is a Homer pick, okay... I know they're apparently set on Beckham. But I'm hoping the Marqise Lee of 2012's too much to pass up in Twenty-forteen.
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Taylor-made for the PR department. Secondary pick: Cyrus Kounadjio--or whoever's their next rated lineman. Pure PR desperation, if the latter. Darkhorse: trade up to Giants spot in hopes of landing Taylor Lewan.
20 - ARI: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Makes no sense, unless you love him; which, they supposedly do.
21 - GB: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
I never get Green Bay's pick right. Secondary pick: Ra'Shede Hagemann.
22 - PHI: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Or Beckham; or whatever speedy WR's still available. Darkhorse: best corner or safety on the board.
23 - KC: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
A reach--no pun intended. Most likely, a colossal bust. Secondary pick: Jordan Matthews, a more sensible pick, but *perceived* as a reach this high--when it should be the other way around. Darkhorse: Trade down (and, IMO, the most sensible thing of all, in this extra-deep draft.)
24 - CIN: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
Should trade down.
25 - SD: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
Secondary pick: Best Available CB or Safety. Darkhorse: Trade down.
26 - CLE: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Possibly the steal of Round One. A safety-net fro Scrambling Johnny Football.
27 - NO: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
Secondary pick: Seferian-Jenkins, as two TE's would be impossible to defend. But that's a luxury this Defense can't afford.
28 - CAR: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
Shoudl trade down. The talent between here and mid-round 3 is scarcely discernible. Secondary pick: Cyrus Kouandjio. Dark Horse: Robinson or Matthews from Vandy if available.
29 - NE: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
Who says TE's have to block? Secondary pick: Koni Ealy. Darkhorse (or favorite?): Morgan Moses, if he's still available.
30 - SF: Stephon Tuitt, DL , Notre Dame
If they didn't have so many picks, I'd say 'trade down'. But perhaps they go up, and grab a top WR, or corner.
31 - DEN: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Via trade. If they *don't* trade out, Cryrus Kouandjio, or S'ua Fialo
32 - SEA: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
Another trade. If they *don't* trade out: Best WR available, probably either Allen Robinson or Jordan Matthews
