1st round mock



1. Houston. Blake Bortles, QB, UCF. Clowney is the best player in this draft but when your current number 1 QB is Ryan Fitzpatrick you need to do something.

2. St. Louis. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn. The Rams are in a great position to either trade down or take a highly rated OT to try and keep Bradford healthy.

3. Jacksonville. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. The Jaguars have struggled to get a pass rush for years and Clowney is a great talent to help fix that.

4. Cleveland. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. The Browns really need a franchise QB plus they need someone who will put fans in the seats, Manziel does both.

5. Oakland. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo. The Raiders are in the great position to simply take the best player available who also happens to be one of the top 2 players in this draft.

6. Atlanta. Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M. Baker sucks and Ryan isn't mobile so they need to keep the pocket clean for him. Matthews can step in and start at either tackle position right away.

7. Tampa Bay. Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson. They have Vincent Jackson but not much else. Whoever is the QB next year needs options.

8. Minnesota. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville. The Vikings have a narrowing window with Peterson and Bridgewater is the most NFL ready QB available.

9. Buffalo. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M. The Bills have a couple decent secondary WR's but really need a number 1 type guy.

10. Detroit. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma St. The Lions secondary is old and not that good. Gilbert becomes an immediate starter for them.

11. Tennessee. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA. The Titans need a 3-4 OLB and Barr fits that position great.

12. N.Y. Giants. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan. Off the field issues aside Lewan is a solid LT and the Giants have struggled to find someone for that position.

13. St. Louis. Zack Martin, OG, Notre Dame. Again the Rams go O-line to try and give Bradford a good chance to succeed.

14. Chicago. Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh. After Melton went down last year the Bears defense fell apart. Donald is a great replacement for him.

15. Pittsburgh. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St. The Steelers have needed a shut down corner for years and now they finally have one.

16. Dallas. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama. Mosley allows Lee to move outside so he's better protected from injury. Mosley is a smart and good talent.

17. Baltimore. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU. Flacco likes to throw the ball deep and Beckham can go get it.

18. N.Y. Jets. Hasean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama. The Jets need an upgrade in the secondary and after going corner last year they go safety this year.

19. Miami. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina. Might seem like a strange pick but Miami doesn't really doesn't have a good option at TE and Ebron is a great talent.

20. Arizona. Calvin Pryor, FS, Louisville. Not much at safety in Arizona so Pryor is a solid pick here.

21. Green Bay. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio St. Packers really need depth at OLB and Shazier is an instant starter for the Packers.

22. Philadelphia. Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St. After releasing Jackson Cooks is a good replacement.

23. Kansas City. Marquise Lee, WR, USC. Bowe is really the only threat the Chiefs have and they need someone else to take some of the pressure off.

24. Cincinnati. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech. Age and injuries caught up with the Bengals corners last year so they need to get some help in that area.

25. San Diego. Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame. The Chargers need someone who can step in at NT right away and contribute, Nix is a massive player who can do just that.

26. Cleveland. Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio St. The Browns need a RB and select a local kid.

27. New Orleans. Jason Verrett,CB, TCU. They signed Champ Bailey but he's at the end of the road.

28. Carolina. Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia. Newton is great at running but the Panthers would rather he stayed in the pocket longer. Moses should be a starter at either tackle spot.

29. New England. Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. Hernandez is in prison and Gronkowski is always hurt. Amaro is a great receiver after setting records last year.

30. San Francisco. Allen Robinson, WR, Penn St. Boldin is really the only consistent performer and he's getting old. Robinson is a good back of the 1st round pick.

31. Denver. Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St. The Broncos are old and not that good at corner. Roby is a solid starter who helps out right away.

32. Seattle. Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA. Seattle is a running team and Su'a-Filo offers an immediate upgrade for them.
