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.
2Tampa Bay BuccaneersQBMarcus Mariota #Oregon
 Drafting Mariota allows the Bucs 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.
3Oakland 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.
4New 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. Cooper and Decker on the outside? Kerley and Amaro on the inside? Now we're talking.
5Washington RedskinsCBIfo Ekpre-OlomuOregon
 #1 CB Deangelo Hall tore his Achilles this year, taking out Washington's #1 corner. The injury 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'.
6St. 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.
7Minnesota 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.
8Tennessee Titans34LBRandy 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.)
9Cleveland BrownsOTAndrus Peat #Stanford
 (from Bills) Peat is a worthy "Franchise LT" prospect that deserves 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.
10Atlanta FalconsOTBrandon ScherffIowa
 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, Thomas Dimitroff, granted he's still around, will like his pedigree and potential to play for many years to come. He can play across from or right next to last years first round selection, Jake Matthews.
11Miami 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.
12Pittsburgh SteelersSLandon Collins #Alabama
 Team leader Troy Polamalu (33) isn't getting any younger, and they need to start improving this secondary. With safety very thin at this point in the draft process, I imagine them taking Collins, leader of Alabama's defense.
13Houston 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 Auburn WR Sammie Coates.
14Kansas City ChiefsCBMarcus Peters #Washington
 Losing Brandon Flowers to the rival Chargers has opened a huge hole in the secondary. Sean Smith is a fine young corner but he isn't made to be a #1. Peters is my #2 corner in the draft.
15New York GiantsOLBLeonard Floyd #Georgia
 Floyd is an exceptional value at this point in the draft. The Giants have various offensive and defensive deficiencies and could use this pick on the BPA.
16Cleveland BrownsDE/34LBShane Ray #Missouri
 Ray is a player I love to watch on tape. A playmaker on the defensive side of the ball that can plain and simply get to the QB. Special combination of speed, quickness, and effort.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Carolina PanthersRBMelvin Gordon #Wisconsin
 I know, I know! 2 RBs in the first round, let alone the top 17?! Yes. I like both Gurley and Gordon a lot and think they can be exceptional talents in the NFL. The Panthers may have had trouble in the past with taking a RB in the 1st (Williams and Stewart) but Gordon may be too good to pass up. Gordon, who is on pace for 2,000 yards rushing and 25-30 total TDs, 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.
18Detroit LionsDE/34LBVic Beasley #Clemson
 The Lions get a steal at #18. 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.
19Chicago BearsCBP.J. Williams #Florida State
 With Charles Tillman at the end of the line, the Bears should draft another cornerback in the first round to team up with Kyle Fuller for years to come.
20New 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.
21Baltimore RavensDEMario Edwards, Jr. #Florida State
 Ozzie being Ozzie. The Ravens fill a need across their defensive line, while also taking one of the best players available. Edwards Jr. is a disruptive player who gets in the backfield and causes havoc.
22Cincinnati BengalsDEShawn Oakman #Baylor
 Oakman is just a mammoth, athletic tree on the defensive line. At 6-9, Oakman could continue to rise up draft boards and be drafted much higher than this. Has huge potential and with the correct coaching, could be a pain to block. Being tall, his biggest flaw is he needs to bend his knees and get lower because smaller guards and tackles can use leverage and technique to move him around.
23Indianapolis ColtsDTMichael BennettOhio State
 The Colts have had a lot of trouble getting sacks this year. With Freeney long gone, and Mathis hurt for the year and future in doubt they should select the best D-lineman still on the board.
24Green Bay PackersOLB/ILBDenzel PerrymanMiami (FL)
 Perryman may be undersized (5-11, 245) to play inside in a 3-4, but he is a true MLB with the instincts and leadership skills that remind you of Miami LB's of the past. The Packers could really use help at the ILB position with AJ Hawk getting older and the 2nd ILB constantly in flux.
25New England PatriotsWRSammie Coates #Auburn
 The Patriots have one HUGE GLARING WEAKNESS. A deep threat that can fill the void that was left by Randy Moss. I'm not comparing Coates to Moss but they need someone better than Brandon LaFell to take the top off of defenses and open up zones for Edelman and Gronk to find.
26San Francisco 49ersWRJaelen Strong #Arizona State
 Strong has had a great season so far, being keyed-on by opposing defenses that understand he is ASU's primary playmaker, and still putting up stats against them. A big-bodied receiver that is tough to defend because of his positioning could add another dimension to San Fransisco's offensive attack. Crabtree is going to be there next year but I have my reservations about Boldin, Johnson, and Lloyd.
27Philadelphia 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.
28Dallas CowboysDE/34LBNoah Spence #Ohio State
 Adding Spence to their 2nd round pick last year, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, gives DC Rod Marinelli the "rushmen" on the outside he truly needs to make this defense work. The defense has been excellent, playing as a team with a bunch of small dollar players, just imagine if they could get some additional blue-chippers in there.
29Arizona CardinalsTEDevin Funchess #Michigan
 The Cardinals are great on the outside with Fitz and Floyd, but they could use a TE for Palmer to throw to. Statistically speaking, Palmer is TE friendly and with a new toy like Funchess in town, they could continue to get stronger as HC Bruce Arians continues to strengthen this team.
30San 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.
31Seattle SeahawksOLBShaq Thompson #Washington
 Hometown player that has 1st round talent and can provide competition for OLBs KJ Wright and Malcolm Smith, who both had tough games against the Cowboys last weekend.
32Denver BroncosILBEric KendricksUCLA
 The Broncos don't need a QB on offense, but a signal-caller on defense should be on their wishlist. Take the younger brother of Eagles starting linebacker, Mychal Kendricks. Eric Kendricks, just like his brother, has a high floor because of his athleticism, effort, disciplined tackling, and instincts.
