Average Rank: 4.0 out of 5 (1 vote) -- Rank This Mock Draft


1 - HOU: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
The Texans can't pass on a talent like Clowney and a pairing with JJ Watt is scary.
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
The Rams made strides on defense and have invested in the skill positions on offense. Improving the o-line will have a trickle down effect on the rest of the offense.
3 - JAX: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The Jags added some nice pieces in free agency and came out and said they are not counting on Justin Blackmon. Watkins gives them a playmaking dynamic on offense.
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Browns have a lot of assets to work with in the draft and should be able to add talent throughout the roster. With QBs like Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen on the roster, this is obviously a top priority and owner Jimmy Haslem seems to have enough influence to make this pick happen.
5 - OAK: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
Mack may be the best defensive player in the draft and Raiders need young talent everywhere.
6 - ATL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
The Falcons would love to trade up for Clowney, but getting Matt Ryan some help on the offensive line so he can have more time to find Julio and Roddy White isn't a bad consolation.
7 - TB: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
Lovie Smith has always valued defense first and pressure from the defensive line is the key to the Cover 2 scheme. Donald will remind Bucs fans of Warren Sapp.
8 - MIN: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
The Vikings brough back Matt Cassel and can afford to wait on QB in this draft. Mike Zimmer gets to work fixing the defense while hoping AP and Cordarelle Patterson can make enough plays on offense.
9 - BUF: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Bills invested a 1st round pick on EJ Manuel last year and now need to invest in keeping him up right. The depth at WR in the draft means they can wait to add weapons.
10 - DET: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The Lions need help on defense, but the thought of Evans with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate is too good to pass up.
11 - TEN: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Titans lost a Pro Bowl CB in Verner going to Tampa Bay. Gilbert can start right away and add playmaking value to the defense.
12 - NYG: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
Eli Manning's struggles the past couple years can be attributed to a poor o-line and a lack of weapons outside of Victor Cruz. Ebron will be a much needed dynamic to the Giants stale offense.
13 - STL: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
The Rams pass rush should lead to plenty of opportunties for Dennard to take advantage of in the secondary.
14 - CHI: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
The Bears invested in their defensive line this offseason and should use the draft to repair an aging secondary.
15 - PIT: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
Big Ben is starting to get up there in age so the Steelers need take advantage while their window is still open. Beckham should help ease the pain of losing Emmanuel Sanders and Cotchery in the offseason.
16 - DAL: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
The Cowboys could use help all over on defense, but they need Barr to come in and fill the huge shoes left behind by Demarcus Ware's departure.
17 - BAL: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Pryor will bring the same centerfied precense of Ed Reed during the Ravens defensive glory years.
18 - NYJ: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
The Jets have added Eric Decker, Chris Johnson, and Michael Vick to a stagnant offense. Adding Cooks to the mix would benefit all three.
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
It's amazing the Dolphins did as well as they did last year considering the locker room turmoil. Martin is another step toward rebuilding the offensive line and atmosphere.
20 - ARI: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
Having Carson Palmer means the Cards could afford to let Bortles sit a year and develop under Bruce Arians' tutelage.
21 - GB: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
BJ Raji's play has dropped off and the Packers defense has suffered because of it. Nix provides additional talent and depth at the NT position.
22 - PHI: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Eagles could use help at all positions on defense. Fuller's size and style of play is a perfect fit for what the Eagles want to do in the secondary and he should immediately push Bradley Fletcher for a starting job.
23 - KC: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
The Chiefs had no talent outside of Jamaal Charles and the occassional big game from Dwayne Bowe. Lee will be a starter from day 1.
24 - CIN: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Andy Dalton has continually come up short despite on the talent around him on offense. Carr will either provide the necessary motivation for Dalton to step up or he'll take over.
25 - SD: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
The Chargers are need of talent and playmakers on defense. Roby fits both criteria.
26 - CLE: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
Playing opposite Josh Gordon should help Benjamin ease into his role and develop.
27 - NO: Cody Latimer, WR , Indiana
The Saints lost veteran players on offense and Marques Colston has been on a steady decline recently. Latimer could contribute right away and has the upside to be a #1 of the future.
28 - CAR: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
Unless the Panthers hate Cam Newton, they'll add some talent at WR early.
29 - NE: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
Hageman is the type of versitaile defensive lineman that the Pats love as he'll be able to alternate postions as the Pats alternate between the 3-4 and 4-3.
30 - SF: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
The Niners are likely to trade up with glaring needs at CB and WR and a plethora of draft picks, but even if they stay put they'll add an early contributer.
31 - DEN: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
The Broncos are in win now mode and will be looking to add rookies that can contribute immediately.
32 - SEA: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
The Seahawks obviously have few needs and will look to give Russell Wilson some more weapons as he continues his development.

Above Average -- I like the 1st half of the draft (especially the Cowboy pick), but you seemed to wander a bit in the 2nd half. Maybe an excessive amount of 1st round WR since the position is so deep this year.
