| Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 |

Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Houston TexansQBTeddy Bridgewater #Louisville
 The Texans are a talented team without a quarterback of the future. Now they have a coach in Bill O'Brien who will look to lock down the position with a poised, accurate and mobile Teddy Bridgewater
2St. Louis RamsOTJake MatthewsTexas A&M
 (from Redskins) The Rams are a prime candidate to trade down but selecting a polished, experienced and mature left tackle with #1 overall talent isn't a bad option either.
3Jacksonville JaguarsDEJadeveon Clowney #South Carolina
 Gus Bradley led the Jags to a furious finish and will look to keep that momentum building into next year. Jadaveon Clowney is somewhat of a risky prospect because you don't know what you get in terms of everyday effort. You do know that he is oozing with potential everyday he walks onto the field.
4Cleveland BrownsQBBlake Bortles #UCF
 The Browns will have a new coach after just one year with Rob Chudzinski and will need to add a quarterback, even if the new coach likes Brian Hoyer. Blake Bortles is surging up draft boards. Derek Carr is also an option and might have even been a better fit skill wise with the now old staff's vertical passing scheme.
5Oakland RaidersQBJohnny Manziel #Texas A&M
 After a terrific Chick-Fil-A Bowl where Johnny Football was once again Johnny Football teams will be hard pressed to not fall in love with him on the field. Durability concerns coupled with maturity question marks will give teams pause, but the talent is there.
6Atlanta FalconsOLBAnthony BarrUCLA
 Despite being on the door step of the Super Bowl a year earlier, the Falcons looked like a helpless team this season. Most of the incompetence was on the defensive side of the ball. Barr is a game changing edge rusher that will instantly help any team.
7Tampa Bay BuccaneersWRSammy Watkins #Clemson
 Mike Glennon did enough to warrant a second look, but with Schiano gone the Bucs could look in another direction. Either way Glennon allows them to address the QB position later and take a legitimate #2 threat opposite Vincent Jackson.
8Minnesota VikingsQBDerek CarrFresno State
 Christian Ponder didn't cut it. Matt Cassell didn't cut it. Josh Freeman...well never mind. Derek Carr has a cannon with a quick release and underrated mobility. Plus he's a great leader and very mature.
9Buffalo BillsOTGreg Robinson #Auburn
 Greg Robinson. The Bills are building a nice young core on both sides of the ball, but what would allow Buffalo to take the next step towards contention would be the development of EJ Manuel. Adding Robinson, who has rocketed up boards, would immediately upgrade Erik Pears at right tackle and also help Nate Hackett to control the line of scrimmage in the round game potentially opening up the flood gates for CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson.
10Detroit LionsILBC.J. MosleyAlabama
 Safe picks are not typically the MO of the Lions draft philosophy but a new regime has the chance to change the culture. Mosley is a sideline to sideline linebacker with a complete skill set and would solidify the position for the next four to five years.
11Tennessee TitansOLBKhalil MackBuffalo
 The Titans could use a defensive end arguably more than an outside linebacker, but Mack would give them a unique talent that could be plugged into the strong side linebacker role, similar to how the Broncos used Von Miller.
12New York GiantsCBDarqueze DennardMichigan State
 Dennard considers the space around him a "No Fly Zone" but the Giants secondary has been an open air zone for a number of years now. The Spartans corner is scheme diverse and has fluid hips, great athleticism and a nose for the bal.
13St. Louis RamsSHaha Clinton-Dix #Alabama
 The Rams will likely consider a receiver, tight end or corner at this spot and while Clinton-Dix might be more of a late first, early second round type prospect but is a very talented guy who fills a need and would give the Rams a dynamic centerfielder.
14Chicago BearsDT/DEStephon Tuitt #Notre Dame
 The Bears defense is no longer the feared unit it was in the heyday of Brian Urlacher and Charles Tillman. Stephon Tuitt is an All-Bus teamer who is as physically intimidating a guy as who'll see and offers the size, strength, athleticism blend to be a versatile defender on the front line.
15Pittsburgh SteelersOTCedric OgbuehiTexas A&M
 Cedric Ogbuehi of Texas A&M has been overshadowed by other stud Aggies prospects Jake Matthews, Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans but is a solid tackle prospect in his own right. At this point in Big Ben's career limiting the hits he takes has to be priority number one. Other prospects like Cyrus Kjouandjio might offer more in the run game but Ogbuechi has incredibly quick feet and the better pure pass protector.
16Dallas CowboysDTLouis Nix III #Notre Dame
 The Cowboys will miss out on the postseason yet again, but there are patches of talent throughout the roster. One place they could improve upon is any position on the defense besides DeMarcus Ware. Nix is a beast up front who is massive, strong and also quick. He would really sure up the defensive line regardless of which scheme they choose for 2014.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Baltimore RavensWRMike Evans #Texas A&M
 The Ravens missed Anquan Boldin more than I think they know. Joe Flacco struggled without a true playmaker outside of Torrey Smith. With Dennis Pitta healthy and another big hybrid receiver like Evans outside teams will have to respect Flacco's arm once again.
18New York JetsTEEric Ebron #North Carolina
 This pick fills two needs for the Jets who needed an NFL starting caliber tight end and actual offensive threat for Geno Smith or whoever plays quarterback. Ebron is scarily close to a Stephon Hill type because his talent is only clouded by inconsistency, but unlike Hill Ebron has produced at the college level and flashed consistently at the ACC level.
19Miami DolphinsOTCameron ErvingFlorida State
 The Dolphins lost two starting linemen to the Incognito-Martin saga so they could pluck a few offensive line prospects in May. Erving was a defensive lineman not too long ago but instantly flashed as a first round type talent on the offensive side of the line showing smooth athleticism and also the strength to drive defenders in the run game.
20Arizona CardinalsOTCyrus Kouandjio #Alabama
 The Cardinals could take a signal caller like Brett Hundley as Carson Palmer's years are numbered, but if not Cyrus Kjouandjio improves a line in desperate need of an upgrade.
21Green Bay PackersTEJace Amaro #Texas Tech
 Matt Flynn was able to hold down the fort as the Packers somehow overcame an injury to Aaron Rodgers and sneaked into the playoffs. Jace Amaro is just to good to pass up and pairing him with a guy like Rodgers would be borderline unfair.
22San Diego ChargersCBJustin GilbertOklahoma State
 Philip Rivers and Ryan Matthews have both looked rejuvenated with the guidance of Mike McCoy but the defense is still a work in progress. Justin Gilbert is a special athlete with tremendous value in the return game as well as the ball skills, speed and physicality to be a potential shutdown corner with time.
23Philadelphia EaglesDTRa'Shede HagemanMinnesota
 Like the Chargers the offense is clearly in good hands with Chip Kelly who is helping Nick Foles look like an All-Pro. The 3-4 defense really seems to succeed when the front line has versatile and athletic guys capable of playing multiple spots. Ra'Shede Hageman is an athletic freak with size, strength and explosive potential that could help push that unit over the top.
24Kansas City ChiefsTEAustin Seferian-Jenkins #Washington
 Alex Smith has proven he's a starter in this league. That being said he's still a low level starter with limited upside. Why not take a chance on a guy that will be an instant red zone monster and that has the physical skills to be a dominant two way tight end?
25Cincinnati BengalsOLBRyan Shazier #Ohio State
 Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga are both very good players but athleticism is not something either is known for. Ryan Shazier is however. He's also undersized but would seem like a natural complement giving Cincy one of the most complete linebacking groups in the NFL.
26Cleveland BrownsWRMarqise Lee #USC
 (from Colts) Drafted a new quarterback and pairing him with another rookie target is something that happens all the time and for good reason. Lee is a steal who might last this long because of a combination of injuries and poor quarterback play, neither are his fault.
27New Orleans SaintsDE/34LBVic Beasley #Clemson
 Rob Ryan helped orchestrate an impressive turnaround as the Saints D became a feared group. In his attacking 3-4 scheme an explosive OLB off the edge would bolster the entire unit even further. Enter Clemson's pass rushing phenom Vic Beasley.
28New England PatriotsGCyril RichardsonBaylor
 Belichik is known for making savvy personenell moves so while drafting a guard won't excite a fan base, "The Hoodie" doesn't care (and frankly shouldn't). The interior line could certainly use an elite guard prospect like Richardson who was athletic enough to be RGIII's blindside protector and the physical strength to dominate inside as well.
29San Francisco 49ersWRJordan MatthewsVanderbilt
 Colin Kaepernick has looked like a different player with Michael Crabtree back from injury but he still needs more weapons. Matthews, who is related to the former Niners and NFL great Jerry Rice, is a hard worker, great route runner and with nice size and soft hands.
30Carolina PanthersWRAllen Robinson #Penn State
 Steve Smith is somehow still playing like a Pro Bowler but as Cam continues to grow as a passer he'll need more options out wide. Robinson has size at 6'3 and is also a very good athlete who can stretch the defense vertically.
31Denver BroncosCTravis SwansonArkansas
 When you have an undisputed future Hall of Fame quarterback like Peyton Manning, the offense is pretty much covered. One area that could certainly use an upgrade would be at the center position. Swanson is a brilliant pass protector and should help Peyton avoid sacks and unnecessary hits.
32Seattle SeahawksGDavid Yankey #Stanford
 Seattle is the odds on favorite to take home the hardware in February but there are a few holes on the otherwise stacked roster. One is on the offensive line, where due to injuries the Seahawks have been playing without offensive tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini and center Max Unger for parts of the season. The guard play has been awful as well, and Pete Carroll will look to secure an athletic and technically sound Yankey who he has experience against playing in the Pac 12.
