1)Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
I think the Texans will definitely draft an defensive end. Weather it is Clowney at 1 or trading back a few picks to get Mack. I can see them getting a QB in the 2nd round.
2) St. Louis Rams (from the Washington Redskins): Khalil Mack, DE, Buffalo
The Rams need some help on defense so I have them scooping up a de3fensive end with their second pick.
3)Jacksonville Jaguars: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
Sammy Watkins with Justin Blackmon would be a fun duo for sure and hopefully help make the Jags more relevant.
4)Cleveland Browns: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St.
The Browns need a franchise QB and I believe they go Carr over Bortles, Manziel, and Bridgewater.
5) Oakland Raiders: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The Raiders need a number 1 receiver and Evans can be that guy.
6)Atlanta Falcons: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
The Falcons have a need for offensive tackle and Robinson is the best one in the draft.
7)Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
I am not sold on any of the Bucs quarterbacks so here is a chance for Manziel to step up.
8)Minnesota Vikings: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF
The Vikings resigned Cassel but I think drafting Bortles would help in the long term.
9) Buffalo Bills: Jake Matthews. OT, Texas A&M
Matthews is a great tackle that can immediately come in and help project Manuel. Wide out if also an option here.
10)Detroit Lions: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Lions addressed their need for a wide receiver in free agency. Their next biggest need is secondary help so I have them going with my top corner here. Barr is also a possibility.
11)Tennessee Titans: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA
Titans need help on the pass rush so I have them going Barr here.
12) New York Giants: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC
The Giants good use another dynamic weapon to help Eli on offense and Ebron is just that. Offensive line and secondary help is also a potential move here.
13) St. Louis Rams: HaHa Clinton-Dix, Safety, Alabama
The Rams need a safety and Clinton-Dix is the best one in the draft. Offensive tackle is also a possibility here.
14) Chicago Bears: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St.
The Bears will need cornerback help this offseason. This will be a great pick up for the Bears here.
15) Pittsburgh Steelers: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Steelers could definitely use a young tackle and Lewan is the next best one available. Tight end or wide receiver is also an option here.
16)Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
Cowboys could use some help on the defensive line and I love this move for them.
17)Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Ravens may need another safety to start aside form Elam. Wide out of C.J Mosley is also an option here.
18) New York Jets: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
Geno Smith had almost zero help on offense this year so this would be a huge need pick for them.
19) Miami Dolphins: Zack Martin, G/OT, Notre Dame
I have been having the Dolphins go defensive tackle a while now but they really need offensive line help if they want Tannehill to get better. They are set a LT and C, Martin can come in an start at guard.
20)Arizona Cardinals: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
If Bridgewater drops this far, the Cards need to think about drafting him to eventually replace Carson Palmer.
21)Green Bay Packers: C.J Mosley, ILB, Alabama
For the first time in a while I do not have them going tight end. I like this change for them though, they need linebacker help.
22)Philadelphia Eagles: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.
The Eagles need to replace Jackson so I have them going Cooks. If not, I have them going corner.
23)Kansas City Chiefs: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Lee would be a great compliment to Bowe.
24) Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Bengals need to add youth to their secondary so I like this move for them. Defensive end is also a possibility with their current free agent situation.
25)San Diego Chargers: Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU
The Chargers need some defensive tackle help and I think Jernigan is a good fit here.
26) Cleveland Browns (from the Colts): Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St.
I have the Browns going with a corner to pair with Joe Haden. I really wanted to go with an offensive weapon here but they can do that in the second round.
27) New Orleans Saints: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
The Saints need to get younger in the secondary and I like Verrett as a fit.
28) Carolina Panthers: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU
Cam Newton can use someone to throw to now that Steve Smith, LaFell, and Ginn are gone. Newton would enjoy throwing downfield to Benjamin.
29)New England Patriots: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
The Patriots could get younger on the D-Line and Nix would be a good fit here. Tight end is also a possibility.
30)San Francisco 49ers: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
Niners need to get younger in the secondary and this would be a great move.
31)Denver Broncos: Kony Ealy, DE/OLB, Missouri
The Broncos need a younger defensive end because they lost two in free agency and Ware is old and they do not know how healthy he will be. That is why I like Ealy here.
32)Seattle Seahawks: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota
Hageman is a big guy who can come in and immediately contribute on defense for the Seahawks.
