Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Tampa Bay BuccaneersQBJameis Winston #Florida State
 Bucs need a QB bad and Winston seems to be the growing consensus.
2Tennessee TitansQBMarcus Mariota #Oregon
 Whether it's the Titans or some other team trading up (Chargers, Eagles, etc.), Mariota is an extremely exciting prospect at the most important position in sports. I would never take Mariota over the safer bet (Leonard Williams), but this mock is based on what I think will happen, not what I would do...
3Jacksonville JaguarsDELeonard Williams #USC
 Jags take the best overall prospect in the draft and keep building this defense around the pass rush. Williams will step in day one and start at a high level at any position on the line. Extremely versatile player who has it all (great intangibles, short-area quickness, awareness, pad level, and motor).
4Oakland RaidersWRKevin WhiteWest Virginia
 White is the riskier bet compared to Amari Cooper, who has had a string of productive seasons, but White brings the one thing you cant teach. SPEED. He also brings great size/wingspan and can make the contested catch. Carr to White could be a nice combination for years.
5Washington RedskinsDE/34LB/OLBDante Fowler, Jr. #Florida
 The Redskins lose Brian Orakpo, who has been oft-injured for a while now, and need to fill the glaring hole across from rising star Ryan Kerrigan. Fowler and Kerrigan coming off the edges is a scary proposition, and could mask the issues the team has on the back end.
6New York JetsDE/34LBShane Ray #Missouri
 The Jets have extremely improved their team from a secondary aspect. Signing Revis, Cromartie, and co. allows for Bowles to play his style of defense: Man coverage with lots of pressure coming from every which way. They could use more pressure players from the OLB position and that's exactly what Ray can provide them.
7Chicago BearsOTBrandon ScherffIowa
 Scherff can start at any position on the offensive line and do so very well. He compares favorably to last years rookie All-Pro selection, Zach Martin, who was a converted tackle to guard. I can see the Bears doing the same with him or keeping him on the outside.
8Atlanta FalconsDE/34LBVic Beasley #Clemson
 The Falcons have needed pass rush ever since John Abraham left town. Beasley had a productive college career and a more productive scouting combine performance.
9New York GiantsOTLa'El CollinsLSU
 Many people have the Giants taking Andrus Peat. I would much prefer taking Collins, who can play 4 positions on the offensive line and is a more polished and readier product IMO.
10St. Louis RamsWRAmari Cooper #Alabama
 The Rams get extremely lucky and take a top 5 talent at #10. Perfect fit of value and need. Cooper would finally give the Rams what they've needed since Torry Holt left, a legit #1 option on the outside. This pick also frees up coverage for Austin and Bailey to wreak havoc.
11Minnesota VikingsCBTrae Waynes #Michigan State
 The Vikes have to pick between Waynes, Peat, and Parker. All 3 would fill needs and involve high potential players. Ill assume the defensive minded coach takes the corner. Waynes has size, speed, instincts, and tackles.
12Cleveland BrownsOTAndrus Peat #Stanford
 Peat had a so-so Senior campaign and fell out of my top 10. He has a very high ceiling and his body makeup is an incredible advantage for his position (thick lower half). He has the tools and can turn back to dominating his opponents if he can bring a mean streak and confidence to his play.
13New Orleans SaintsDTDanny SheltonWashington
 The Saints take a "pocket pig" that can bring pressure right up the middle and take up double teams from Cameron Jordan and the LBs. Shelton is an outstanding prospect that brings an imposing size and physicality to his position. The Saints defense needs help in the front 7 and Shelton brings that help.
14Miami DolphinsWRDeVante ParkerLouisville
 The Dolphins lost Wallace, Hartline, and Clay, among others. They need new weapons and Parker is a great value at this point. Parker is a high-point specialist that wins one-on-ones regularly and can provide an excellent red zone target for QB Tannehill.
15San Francisco 49ersDEArik Armstead #Oregon
 The 49ers need to replenish the cupboards on a defense that not only lost a lot of talent, but also most of its captains. Armstead is long and strong and brings an imposing figure to a defensive line that most likely just lost Justin Smith.
16Houston TexansWRJaelen Strong #Arizona State
 The Texans just lost the face of their franchise of 10+ years, Andre Johnson, to a division rival no less. They need to replace him and give whoever QBs their team a couple of nice options in Hopkins and Strong. I'm a huge fan of Strong's, who was incredibly productive in college, and think he can easily become a #1 in this league if used correctly.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17San Diego ChargersDTEddie Goldman #Florida State
 The Chargers need help at the nose tackle position and Goldman would be an excellent fit on a defensive line that already has Kendall Reyes and Corey Liuget.
18Kansas City ChiefsCBJalen Collins #LSU
 The Chiefs needed a WR badly going into free agency and ended up with Jeremy Maclin. That relieves a bit of their needs at the position and allows them to take a receiver in the 2nd or 3rd, especially in a very deep class of receivers. They should take Collins and fill a need at the CB across from Sean Smith. The second corner to come off the board will be interesting, but Collins would be mine.
19Cleveland BrownsDTMalcolm Brown #Texas
 (from Bills) The Browns take the quick-footed big man from Texas and add depth and talent to this defensive line. They still have needs at RB and WR but I see them looking at those positions in rounds 2-4.
20Philadelphia EaglesSLandon Collins #Alabama
 The Eagles get extremely fortunate and take by far the best safety in the draft class. Collins, who gets criticized by some who think he's purely an in-the-box safety, lucks out and gets to play with a perfect counterpart in Malcolm Jenkins who is more of a cover safety and will allow Collins to roam and play freely. The Eagles love to play cover 1 and this safety duo would fit nicely.
21Cincinnati BengalsOTEreck Flowers #Miami (FL)
 LT Andrew Whitworth is getting long in the tooth and RT Andre Smith has never lived up to being a top 10 selection. Flowers would be a nice prodigy to eventually take over at either spot and brings youth and depth to their O-line.
22Pittsburgh SteelersCBMarcus Peters #Washington
 The Steelers have needed corner help for some time now and finally find a possible replacement for longtime starter Ike Taylor. Peters has some off the field issues that concern me but the Steelers family should be able to keep him under control and playing up to his potential.
23Detroit LionsDE/34LBAlvin DupreeKentucky
 "Bud" Dupree is a great talent that is special rushing the passer. By drafting Dupree, the Lions can try and reproduce the pressure lost by the departures of Suh and Fairley. Dupree and Ansah are young edge-rushers that will make playing the Detroit D that much harder. They still need corner help but can look at that position on day 2.
24Arizona CardinalsDE/34LBRandy Gregory #Nebraska
 The Cards have taken risks on players with pot-related offenses in the past (Tyrann Mathieu) and had success. Gregory is a top 5 talent going at #24 and fills a glaring hole for the team. I consider this a well calculated risk that could turn out really well for the team. I'm not a huge fan of Gregory's in general, but at this point, he's a huge steal.
25Carolina PanthersOTT.J. ClemmingsPittsburgh
 The Panthers need an offensive tackle to protect Cam and Clemmings is a high risk-high reward prospect that can pay off for the team if he can continue maturing at a position he is very new to. The fact that the offensive line is relatively strong already only makes the chances of him succeeding that much better.
26Baltimore RavensWRDorial Green-Beckham #Oklahoma
 The Ravens need to replace the lost production of Torrey Smith. Green-Beckham is a top 10 talent with a lot of baggage. Just like the Steelers, I believe that the Ravens have the right organizational structure to keep players on the straightened path. If this gamble works out for the team, the Ravens may have a deadly combination in Steve Smith and Green-Beckham. They still need a complimentary RB for Justin Forsett, but can find that in later rounds.
27Dallas CowboysDTMichael BennettOhio State
 The Cowboys signing Hardy and drafting Bennett would give them a very formidable defensive line and a huge improvement from last years group that only tallied 28 total sacks. More pressure is exactly what Rod Marinelli wants and that's exactly what Bennett can provide them for years to come. Everyone expects the Cowboys to take Gurley or Gordon but I see them taking one in round 2 or 3 where the class of running backs truly shines.
28Denver BroncosOT/CCameron ErvingFlorida State
 The Broncos get the versatile lineman that can come in and start day one at any position. However, I would prefer him as an interior lineman...
29Indianapolis ColtsRBMelvin Gordon #Wisconsin
 The Colts may have signed Frank Gore, but he's more of a short term rental that still has a year or two of productive football left in him. Gordon can provide a nice compliment and change of pace to Gore and give the Colts the RB of the future. Imagine Andrew Luck with a good running game? Scary...
30Green Bay PackersILBEric KendricksUCLA
 Kendricks is a favorite of mine and will step in day one and start at a high level. The Packers find a replacement for AJ Hawk and continue to build their team through the draft.
31New Orleans SaintsWR/TEDevin Funchess #Michigan
 New Orleans lost Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills in the off season and need to replace the chess pieces for Brees to throw to.
32New England PatriotsCBKevin JohnsonWake Forest
 The Patriots just lost Revis and Browner. They need corner help immediately, especially if McCourty stays at safety.
