| Round 1 |

Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Jacksonville JaguarsDELeonard Williams #USC
 Coach Gus Bradley continues to add pieces to his defense with the best non-QB prospect in the draft. Williams may not be an athletic "freak of nature" like last years #1 pick, Jadeveon Clowney, but Williams has no where near the baggage Clowney had coming out. Played hurt against Stanford and is a highly respected team leader. The right type of player the Jags need to shift their losing culture.
2Oakland RaidersOTCedric OgbuehiTexas A&M
 Get some blindside protection for developing QB Derek Carr. The loss of Jared Veldheer to Arizona in FA has ended up hurting Oakland badly as replacement Donald Penn is waaay past his prime. Ogbuehi follows the lineage of recent A&M Left Tackle prospects (Joeckel/Matthews) to go in the top 10.
3Tampa Bay BuccaneersQBMarcus Mariota #Oregon
 Did you see the Bucs on Thursday Night Football? Horrendous on both sides. Drafting Mariota allows them to have a chance against their division rivals, who all have pro-bowl caliber QBs (Brees, Ryan, and Newton). A proven leader who has grown up in an offense at Oregon that is predicated on getting the football into the hands of playmakers, Mariota will make VJax and Mike Evans very happy. In addition, IF Doug Martin can return to his old form, this offense could look immensely better.
4St. Louis RamsQBJameis Winston #Florida State
 He may have baggage, but hes a proven winner. The media may lambaste him but the people inside FSU (coaches and players) speak highly of his intentions, while bringing up his immature actions/mistakes. The NFC West division has transformed into the toughest in the whole league and to make any noise the Rams need to start over at QB as they can't keep waiting for Sam Bradford and his knees to come around.
5Washington RedskinsCBIfo Ekpre-Olomu #Oregon
 #1 CB Deangelo Hall just tore his Achilles which could be the kiss of death to his career (turns 31 in Nov.). Either way they need to start rebuilding this secondary and Ekpre-Olomu may be the franchise corner this team has been looking for ever since they traded away Champ Bailey in 04'.
6New York GiantsOTBrandon ScherffIowa
 Eli Manning without adequate protection is a much different QB than he is with protection. Scherff, compared by some, as this years version of Zack Martin is a "high floor player" that can play 4 spots across the O-Line (inside at either guard spots or outside at either tackle spots). Coming from an O-Line factory at Iowa, Coughlin, granted he's still around, will like his pedigree and potential to play for many years to come.
7New York JetsWRAmari Cooper #Alabama
 Add Cooper to this offense and it goes from one of the leagues weakest to being able to hold its own against teams they have fallen short to so far this year (Packers/Bears). Cooper and Decker on the outside? Kerley and Amaro on the inside? Now we're talking.
8Cleveland BrownsOTAndrus Peat #Stanford
 Peat is the last of the worthy "Franchise LT" prospects that deserve to go in the top 10. With Joe Thomas still covering up the blindside, Peat can start off on the right side. Give Manziel or Hoyer that type of O-Line with Bitonio at LG, Mack at C, and Greco and Schwartz fighting over that RG spot, and your starting to make a case for a top 3 offensive line in the league. After Thomas retires, Peat can man that spot for the following 8-10 years.
9Minnesota VikingsRBTodd Gurley #Georgia
 The last time the Vikes took a RB in the top 10, it worked out pretty well for them (up to this year at least). Now with AD most likely gone they need to fill his shoes and Gurley is the perfect replacement. RB value may have diminished, but players like Gurley dont come around that often. Hes a true bell cow that is the best RB prospect to come out since Peterson himself.
10Tennessee TitansRandy Gregory #Nebraska
 If the Titans can't trade up for one of the top 2 QBs, they should draft one of the 3 pass rushers worthy of this spot (Gregory, Floyd, or Fowler Jr.)
11Houston TexansOTLa'El CollinsLSU
 Given his massive frame and size (6-4, 325) Collins projects as either a right tackle or guard in the pros. The Texans could definitely use him at one of those 3 spots. Also an idea, If Andre Johnson potentially gets cut or traded, I could see them reaching a bit for Louisville WR DeVante Parker.
12Miami DolphinsOLBDante Fowler, Jr. #Florida
 Getting someone to rush across from DE Cameron Wake is a necessity for this teams defense. It comes down to Fowler and Leonard, with Fowler winning it out due to his size (270 lbs) being a better fit for 4-3 and the fact that the Dolphins will know everything about him, having him in their backyard.
13Kansas City ChiefsSLandon Collins #Alabama
 The best players available are 3-4 OLBs (Leonard, Ray, and Beasley). Unfortunately for KC, that's where they are the deepest (Hali/Houston). Forecasting the draft process, I see Alabama safety Landon Collins rising up draft boards due to the lack of depth at the safety position. Putting Collins next to Eric Berry could do wonders for their weak secondary.
14Cleveland BrownsWRDeVante ParkerLouisville
 The Browns could really use receiver help, even with Josh Gordon available. I was surprised to see them not draft a single WR in last years draft, knowing that Gordon was facing a potential season-long suspension. Miles Austin as your #1-2 receiver isn't going to cut it. They shouldn't make the same mistake this year. Parker, who could fall because of foot surgery he had this year, had 12 touchdowns in his junior year at Louisville. If he can come back and show no ill-effects of injury, he could turn into a very nice #2 receiver that can be used as insurance if Gordon screws up again.
15Dallas CowboysDE/34LBShane Ray #Missouri
 Lucky for the Dallas Cowboys, the draft has left them with an abundance of prospects at the position they could use the most; pass rushers. Leonard Floyd is my highest rated player and should've been gone a long time ago but team needs and fits aren't there for him. Dallas is a 4-3 team now and chooses between Shane Ray and Vic Beasley. Ray has the bigger upside with his elite speed, athleticism, and motor. Adding Ray to their 2nd round pick last year, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, DC Rod Marinelli has the "rushmen" he truly needs to make this Tampa 2 defense work.
16Pittsburgh SteelersLeonard Floyd #Georgia
 Finally, Floyd finds his landing spot. A huge steal for the steel curtain as they try to rebuild a defense that had been aging. Now with Floyd, Ryan Shazier, and Jarvis Jones, the Steelers have invested 3 first round selections as they build one of the most formidible linebacker squads in the league. Very similar to their championship past of having Harrison/Woodley.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17San Francisco 49ersDEMario Edwards, Jr. #Florida State
 With the Ray McDonald domestic violent situation up in the air and the ageless wonder Justin Smith turning 35 on Sept. 30th, the Niners, who are loaded with young talent from stockpiling draft picks should snag up the best 3-4 defensive lineman in the draft.
18Green Bay PackersCBMarcus Peters #Washington
 The Pack have some holes on defense. They could use a true FS and a young infusion at CB. With the only safety worth a 1st round pick, Landon Collins gone, the "Cheese-heads" take the second best cover corner in the draft.
19Chicago BearsWRNelson Agholor #USC
 This may be overkill considering they have Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey, and Martellus Bennett. However, they could be even scarier if Cutler had another receiver in the slot to take double teams away from the others. Agholor has great shiftiness and route-running made for the slot. However, his hands need to get better if they expect him to catch the spicy mustard Cutler throws the pigskin with.
20Carolina PanthersRBMelvin Gordon #Wisconsin
 The Panthers may have had trouble in the past with taking a RB in the 1st (Williams and Stewart) but the backs left around at this point are too good to pass up. It's difficult choosing between Gordon and Yeldon, but Ill go with Gordon, who matched up with the legs of Cam Newton could make for some terrifying zone-read assignments for defenders. Add that to TE Greg Olson and emerging WR Kelvin Benjamin, and the Carolina offense may give their defense a run for their money in practice.
21Baltimore RavensDTMichael BennettOhio State
 Ozzie being Ozzie. The Ravens fill a need across their defensive line, while also taking one of the best players available. Bennett is an disruptive player who gets in the backfield and causes havoc.
22Detroit LionsDE/34LBVic Beasley #Clemson
 The Lions get a steal at #22. Beasley, who could've gone in the top 10 has fallen due to the depth at his position, and lucky for the Lions. They can use him at either DE or OLB, similar to the fashion that the Seahawks have used Bruce Irvin.
23San Diego ChargersGA.J. CannSouth Carolina
 The Chargers currently have Chad Rinehart and Johnnie Troutman starting at Guard. They could definitely use an upgrade at the position. They could also go RB TJ Yeldon, but its possible that their selection of Ryan Matthews in the 1st a few years back could scare them out of that thought.
24Atlanta FalconsTEDevin Funchess #Michigan
 The Falcons have looked good on offense, but they have a glaring hole at TE. Funchess is a tall, athletic, flex tight end that has lots of potential. If he can stay healthy, (missed the Miami (OH) game), play well during the remainder of the season, and have a good showing in the draft process, he can crack the top 32.
25Indianapolis ColtsWRTy MontgomeryStanford
 This selection makes sense for a couple reasons. 1) Reggie Wayne is coming off of an ACL injury at the age of 35. 2) The Colts and GM Ryan Grigson like players (Andrew Luck/Coby Fleener) and coaches (OC Pep Hamilton) from Stanford.
26New Orleans SaintsDEShilique Calhoun #Michigan State
 The Saints are one of the best teams in the league at finding diamonds in the rough and late round gems. For example, pass-rushing specialist OLB Junior Galette from Stillman College has turned into a star for the team (14 sacks in the last 19 games). However, opposite him is Parys Haralson, who has underwhelming stats (3.5 sacks in the last 19 games). The Saints could give opposing O-Lines headaches by taking and giving them a nice 1-2 punch on the edges.
27New England PatriotsDTDanny SheltonWashington
 With veteran leader Vince Wilfork turning 33 in early Nov. it would be smart for the Pats to draft his successor so they can learn from him. It's rare to find a 340 pound "pocket pig" like Shelton that could be the nation's leader in sacks (7.0) and tied for the lead in tackles for loss (9.5).
28Arizona CardinalsRBT.J. Yeldon #Alabama
 TJ Yeldon and Andre Ellington could become a dynamic "thunder and lightning" combination. I was considering a QB here but who needs to reach for one when you have a QB whisperer as head coach. Was I dreaming, or did Drew Stanton really just tear up the SF defense?
29Denver BroncosOLB/ILBDenzel PerrymanMiami (FL)
 Perryman may be undersized (5-11, 245), but he is a true MLB with the instincts and leadership skills that remind you of Miami LB's of the past. The Broncos don't need a QB on offense, but a signal-caller on defense should be on their wishlist.
30Philadelphia EaglesCHroniss GrasuOregon
 The Eagles don't have a weakness at C as Jason Kelce has done great for them. However, they could use help at G with long time starter Todd Herremans turning 32 next month and LG Dennis Kelley being average at best. Grasu has been projected as a C but could easily move to guard and backup C.
31Seattle SeahawksOTTyrus ThompsonOklahoma
 Do the Seahawks really need to have a first round pick? A team with no glaring holes, they should go Best Player Available. They have no immediate needs at OT, but the opportunity to draft a player with the potential of Thompson, the starting LT on the 4th ranked team in the nation, should suffice.
32Cincinnati BengalsILBEric KendricksUCLA
 The Bengals take the younger brother of Eagles starting linebacker, Mychal Kendricks. Put him on the strongside next to MLB Maualuga and WLB Burfict and this defense keeps getting better.
