Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Tampa Bay BuccaneersQBMarcus Mariota #Oregon
 The reigning Heisman Trophy winner is the no-brainer #1 pick for the Bucs. GM Jason Licht went to the Rose Bowl to watch the Mariota-Winston match up, but he really didn't need to.
2Tennessee TitansQBJameis Winston #Florida State
 The Titans are desperate for a signal-caller after missing on Jake Locker in 2011 (8th overall). Winston has many red-flags off the field, but hes a proven winner. It also wouldn't hurt if Winston went to a small market team with small market media.
3Jacksonville JaguarsDELeonard Williams #USC
 Jaguars take the best non-QB in the draft. Williams will step in day one and start, eventually becoming a perennial pro-bowler. Athletic size-speed-quickness freak that possesses a high motor.
4Oakland RaidersWRAmari Cooper #Alabama
 Get young franchise QB Derek Carr a young WR to grow with for years to come. Raiders should take best player available as they have numerous needs on both sides of the ball.
5Washington RedskinsDE/34LBRandy Gregory #Nebraska
 With Brian Orakpo's future in serious doubt, grab Gregory and place him across from rising star Ryan Kerrigan and wreak havoc on opposing QBs. DB is a more pressing need but no CB/S truly deserves a top 5 selection.
6New York JetsDE/34LBShane Ray #Missouri
 Ray would be an excellent addition to the Jets front 7 that already includes studs Sheldon Richardson, Muhammad Wilkerson, and Quinton Coples.
7Chicago BearsSLandon Collins #Alabama
 Collins is a good-great prospect but is a bit of a reach in the top 10 IMO. However, because of the serious lack of talent at DB after him, he should find himself somewhere in the top 10. The Bears are a mess on both sides of the ball but slightly messier on defense. Poor at both stopping the run and pass, they should draft a future QB of their defense as team leaders CB Charles Tillman and LB Lance Briggs walk into the sunset.
8Atlanta FalconsDE/34LB/OLBDante Fowler, Jr. #Florida
 The Falcons are much better on offense than they are on defense. They would be wise to start rebuilding there defense back and Fowler is the BPA on defense.
9New York GiantsOTBrandon ScherffIowa
 Other NFC East teams will be looking at the Dallas Cowboys offensive line and follow their blueprint to winning. Ironically enough, Scherff is being compared to Dallas Cowboys NFL All-Pro guard Zack Martin. Scherff should step in day one and start at guard and immediately improve the Giants running game that has been lacking in recent years.
10St. Louis RamsWRDeVante ParkerLouisville
 The Rams have a lot of speed at WR (Tavon Austin/Stedmom Bailey) but are missing size on the outside. Parker is an exciting receiver prospect that can add another dimension to the Rams offense that they're lacking. Kenny Britt is adequate, but not good enough when the Rams have to play the Seahawks, Niners, and Cards twice a year.
11Minnesota VikingsWRKevin WhiteWest Virginia
 The Vikings are getting better on defense with the help of Head Coach Mike Zimmer. With Teddy Bridewater looking like the future franchise QB, the Vikings should surround him with necessary pieces to succeed. Cordarrelle Patterson would be better served as a #2-3 WR/Special Teams Ace until he has properly matured as a route-runner. White had an outstanding season at West Virginia but I'm curious to see how his ranking will be affected after the pre-draft process, compared to players I also like i.e Jalen Strong/Devin Funchess.
12Cleveland BrownsDTDanny SheltonWashington
 The Browns were last in the league in run defense and need to improve if they want to have any chance of ever winning the AFC North. Shelton is a pocket pig that is ultra athletic for his size and can be used in the Vince Wilfork role for the Browns. The 340 lbs nose tackle terrorized QBs this past season with 9 sacks.
13New Orleans SaintsDE/34LBVic Beasley #Clemson
 The Saints were atrocious on defense last year for numerous reasons. With OLBs Junior Galette having legal issues and Parys Haralson only producing 3 sacks last season, the Saints are in dire need of young pass rushers.
14Miami DolphinsOTEreck Flowers #Miami (FL)
 Flowers is not a huge name right now, but with the poor play of Andrus Peat and the injury to Cedric Ogbuehi, it wouldnt surprise me to see him drafted in the top 10-15. Being a Miami Hurricane, no other team would know him better than the Dolphins, who coincidentally have a huge glaring need at OT.
15San Francisco 49ersDTEddie Goldman #Florida State
 With Justin Smith (retirement) and Ray McDonald (released) gone, the Niners could use some new blood on the Defensive line. Goldman would be a nice selection who could step in and start at the DE spot in 3-4.
16Houston TexansOTAndrus Peat #Stanford
 Peat's ranking dropped off a lot this past season due to some inconsistent play but could even out if he impresses enough during the pre-draft process. Peat plays too high too often for my liking but with good coaching, he could revert back to his Junior season form.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17San Diego ChargersOTLa'El CollinsLSU
 The Chargers need a lot of help on the offensive line and Collins will be a plug-and-play guard at either guard spots. He also has the position flexibility to play RT, making him more valuable.
18Kansas City ChiefsWR/TEDevin Funchess #Michigan
 The Chiefs went the whole season without a TD from a WR. Need I say more? They should take the top WR on their board. Funchess is a walking mismatch and would add a nice dimension to a KC offense that is run-dominated, not just because of scheme, but because of lack of personnel.
19Cleveland BrownsWRJaelen Strong #Arizona State
 (From Bills) With Josh Gordon's future in Cleveland in serious doubt, the Browns NEED to find themselves a new #1 target for either Manziel or Hoyer. Strong is underrated IMO and will be a nice player for years to come.
20Philadelphia EaglesCBTrae Waynes #Michigan State
 The Eagles are desperate for DB help. Other than Malcolm Jenkins, they could use an upgrade at every other position. CB Bradley Fletcher was abused all season long (go look at him matched up on Jordy Nelson and Dez Bryant). Waynes is my top CB prospect in the draft. Plays good in man/zone coverage and can tackle.
21Cincinnati BengalsOLBShaq Thompson #Washington
 The Bengals have a tough decision to make when deciding whether to resign Linebacker Rey Maualuga or not. If they dont, they have good LB prospects to choose from at this point in the draft. Thompson is a good prospect that has continuously made plays for the Huskies throughout his college career.
22Pittsburgh SteelersCBMarcus Peters #Washington
 The Steelers NEED cornerback help desperately. Ike Taylor is way past his prime and needs to be replaced. The question is, do they take the injury prone Ekpre-Olomu or the red-flagged Peters? I think the Steelers are a stable enough organization to take Peters and make it work.
23Detroit LionsGA.J. CannSouth Carolina
 The Lions really need to solidify the inside of their offensive line. Cann is a safe pick that can come in day one and start.
24Arizona CardinalsILBBenardrick McKinney #Mississippi State
 The Cardinals have needs at linebacker and McKinney is a promising prospect that could flourish being surrounded by all the talent the Cardinals possess on the defensive side of the ball.
25Carolina PanthersRBMelvin Gordon #Wisconsin
 I've had Gordon going to the Panthers in everyone of my mock drafts this season. I just believe it would be an excellent fit with Cam Newton and Gordon running the read-option, giving headaches to opposing defenses. IMO Newton is an average decision maker when passing at best and adding this dimension to their offense would put more defenders in the box and make lanes much larger and decisions much easier for Cam as he goes through his progressions.
26Baltimore RavensRBTodd Gurley #Georgia
 This is very much a wildcard selection by me, but the Ravens could use Gurley and Forsett as a very nice thunder-and-lightning duo as they go back to their roots of playing great defense and running that rock. I know RBs are being devalued in the draft nowadays, but Gurley is a very special talent, that when healthy should eventually become a pro-bowl caliber back.
27Dallas CowboysDTMichael BennettOhio State
 The Cowboys are probably going to lose Henry Melton to free agency and would be smart to draft a future starter at the 3-technique, which is one of the most important positions in the Tampa 2 ran by DC Rod Marinelli. Bennett isn't the sexiest pick but he will be a good player that understands his role. He had a nice Senior campaign with 36 tackles, 12.5 tackles for a loss, six sacks, and three forced fumbles.
28Denver BroncosOLB/ILBDenzel PerrymanMiami (FL)
 I've thought Perryman to the Broncos was a perfect fit for quite some time. The Broncos need a QB on defense and Perryman can develop into that type of player. He's short (6'0) but makes up for it with heart that you expect from Miami Hurricane MLBs.
29Indianapolis ColtsOTCedric OgbuehiTexas A&M
 The Colts could grab a great value in Ogbuehi, who may not be ready for the start of the season (torn ACL), but could eventually grow into the blindside protector of Andrew Luck for 10+ years. He struggled a bit during his senior campaign, but his injuries could have hindered his play. Colts fans know what Tarik Glenn did for Peyton Manning, and know that Anthony Castanzo would be better served on the right side.
30Green Bay PackersILBEric KendricksUCLA
 Kendricks is one of my favorite players in the draft, according to current value. He plays similarly to his brother, Mychal, who is a good starter for the Eagles, and he can come in and start if need be. AJ Hawk is getting long in the tooth, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to start to prepare for life without him.
31New England PatriotsCBIfo Ekpre-OlomuOregon
 The Patriots could afford to take risks and Ekpre-Olomu is the ultimate boom-bust prospect. With good coaching, which is a given in New England, and good role models in Revis, Browner, and McCourty, Ekpre-Olomu could be in the perfect situation to succeed.
32Seattle SeahawksCBKevin JohnsonWake Forest
 The Seahawks can always go BPA. Johnson is a savvy senior out of Wake Forest that is a nice pick with good length. He can come in immediately and play special teams and the nickel/dime.
