Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Kansas City ChiefsOTLuke Joeckel #Texas A&M
 I know most think that the Chiefs will take Geno Smith, but he really would be a reach for number one overall. Instead, the Chiefs can release Branden Albert (forgoing his large bonus) and take Joeckel, a great left tackle that can secure this poor line and have more cap space for signing other key free agents.
2Jacksonville JaguarsDE/34LBBarkevious Mingo #LSU
 Jacksonville has to create a pass rush or their defense will continue to be a huge disappointment. Mingo is an athletic threat off the edge, although a little raw. Again, a quarterback could be targeted, but taking one of the top signal callers would be a huge risk.
3Oakland RaidersDTStar LotuleleiUtah
 Raiders take the top player on our board as the defense was one of the worst in the NFL (29th in takeaways, 31st in sacks, 5th in points allowed). Lotulelei will give the line strength up the middle with the ability to collapse the pocket and stop the run.
4Philadelphia EaglesOTJake MatthewsTexas A&M
 The Eagles have looked to Nick Foles at quarterback and he likely will be given the opportunity to win the job next season. But for him (or whoever is under center) to succeed, the offensive line has to be shored up.
5Detroit LionsCBDee Milliner #Alabama
 The Lions secondary was awful last year, and Milliner would be a huge upgrade that could make an impact immediately.
6Cleveland BrownsDE/34LBBjoern Werner #Florida State
 The Browns struggled mightily to stop teams on 3rd down and need to focus on improving the defense after focusing on offense last season. Werner is the top defensive end in the draft, a complete player who has only been playing football for five years.
7Arizona CardinalsQBGeno SmithWest Virginia
 The Cardinals are desperate at quarterback, and therefore willing to reach a little to get someone. Many put Geno Smith #1 overall, mainly because of need and the success of recent rookie quarterbacks.
8Buffalo Bills34LB/OLBJarvis Jones #Georgia
 Doubt Jones will drop this far, but if he does, the Bills will snap him up needing a playmaker at the 2nd level. Even more likely in this scenario would be a team like the Jets or Chargers moving up to here for him and Buffalo dropping down and taking Matt Barkley or Tyler Wilson.
9New York JetsDE/34LBDamontre Moore #Texas A&M
 The defense Jets only garnered 30 sacks, so taking a rusher that is familiar with the 3-4 (Moore played DE in the 4-3 and rush linebacker in the 3-4) would be a no brainer.
10Tennessee TitansDESam Montgomery #LSU
 The Titans needs aren't many, but they are specific. Biggest is defensive end where Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan haven't been the playmakers that the Titans were hoping. Montgomery has the size and tools to be that playmaker at the next level for the Titans.
11San Diego ChargersCBJohnthan BanksMississippi State
 The Chargers seem to have much of the same needs as last year, namely a left tackle, corner, and rush linebacker. Here San Diego takes a bit of a reach and pulls in a much needed starting corner in Banks.
12Miami DolphinsDTJohnathan Hankins #Ohio State
 Although not one of the top needs for the Dolphins, Hankins is a top 10 talent that has dropped some in this draft.
13Tampa Bay BuccaneersDTSheldon Richardson #Missouri
 Bucs need a presence up front and Richardson is rising on draft boards.
14Carolina PanthersDTJohn JenkinsGeorgia
 Jenkins is a massive force up front that can really help the Panthers in one of their biggest struggles, stopping the run.
15New Orleans SaintsDE/34LBDion JordanOregon
 The Saints have to generate more pass rush and Dion Jordan can get after the passer.
16St. Louis RamsWRJustin Hunter #Tennessee
 Rams hope to grab a left tackle but will be happy with an elite wide out like Hunter.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Pittsburgh SteelersILBManti Te'oNotre Dame
 The defense needs a leader in the middle and Te'o is a smart linebacker who has dropped because of his play in the National Championship game.
18Dallas CowboysGChance WarmackAlabama
 Warmack is a top 10 talent, but guards aren't valued enough to go that high. However, Dallas won't let him fall past them.
19New York GiantsOTEric FisherCentral Michigan
 High upside tackle that can play the left or right side for the Giants who struggled to protect Eli Manning.
20Chicago BearsGJonathan CooperNorth Carolina
 The O-Line continues to cost the Bears and upgrades are needed every where. Cooper is the best offensive lineman available.
21Cincinnati BengalsCBXavier Rhodes #Florida State
 The secondary was a major concern for the Bengals this season and cost them a few games. Rhodes is a physical corner who can add support in the run game, also.
22St. Louis RamsOTD.J. Fluker #Alabama
 (from Redskins) A dominant run blocker that has potential as a blind-side blocker to protect Sam Bradford.
23Minnesota VikingsWRKeenan Allen #California
 If Christian Ponder is going to have a chance, he'll have to have a receiver that he can rely on and Allen is the go-to type of receiver that could make this offense explosive.
24Baltimore RavensILBAlec Ogletree #Georgia
 Replacing Ray Lewis may not be possible, but somebody has to step in. Ogletree is a gifted linebacker who can make plays all over the field.
25Indianapolis ColtsSKenny VaccaroTexas
 Vaccaro is an elite safety that will make a huge impact on defense in both run support and against the pass.
26Seattle SeahawksWRTerrance WilliamsBaylor
 Russell Wilson has taken control of the Seahawks offense, but he really needs better weapons in the passing the game. Williams could easily start as the #2 and even move up to #1 on this team.
27Green Bay PackersTETyler Eifert #Notre Dame
 Jermichael Finley will likely be gone and Tom Crabtree has been solid, but not great whereas adding Eifert can give them a real threat at tight end.
28Houston TexansWRRobert Woods #USC
 The Texans have been looking for a playmaking receiver opposite Andre Johnson for a few years, and Woods can go deep and take the hits going across the middle.
29San Francisco 49ersSMatt Elam #Florida
 The biggest weakness for the 49ers has been their secondary, and in particular their safeties. Elam can come in and immediately compete for a starting position and possibly upgrade the position.
30New England PatriotsWRTavon AustinWest Virginia
 The tight ends and slot have been the only receivers making an impact for the Patriots on a regular basis, so an upside on the outside is needed. Austin is a player who can make moves after the catch and spread the field.
31Atlanta FalconsDE/34LBAlex OkaforTexas
 The Falcons front seven struggled to get consistent pressure. Okafor is an athletic end who is great in run support.
32Denver BroncosDTJesse WilliamsAlabama
 A massive tackle that can demand double teams and stop the run.
