    25
    OT TAYLOR LEWAN
    MICHIGAN………………….Day one starter at LT doesn't happen @ pick 25 in the NFL draft. Allows King Dunlap to become swing Tackle on game day providing more than solid back-up
    57
    DT WILL SUTTON
    ARIZONA STATE…….Situational pass rusher who can come in on 3rd down and put Manning on his back from the middle. Gives the bolts what they've been lacking.
    89
    CB PIERRE DESIR
    LINDENWOOD………..Impressed with performances at both East / West Shrine and Senior Bowl games. Small school prospect with great skills and upside.
    121
    C MARCUS MARTIN
    USC……………………….First team all Pack 10 with much upside. Given a year to develop behind Nick Hardwick he should become a solid performer for years to come.
    153
    OT SEANTREL HENDERSON
    MIAMI……………………………………..The number one rated high school player in America he was dominant when healthy. If he can stay healthy this could be the biggest draft day steal since Unitas in the 16th round. He should at least provide quality back up play till 2022.
    185
    CB ANDRE HAL
    VANDERBILT…………….Second team all SEC. Known as one of the top cover corners in the conference, plays with physicality and has the size to help in the AFC west.
    217
    CB AARON COLVIN
    OKLAHOMA…………….Another prospect with upside, could develop into a solid corner.

  • Niko Core

    Mike Evans may be the #1 reciever this year he's 6'5 231 while Sammy Watkins is 6'1 211 and just ran faster then Mike by a 10th of a second. He averaged 20+ yards per catch last season. Put him & Cal together nobody will stop them. If the Lions play it smart they'll get Emanuel Sanders to putin the slot which wouldn't cost too much. I say with the corners Ihad left Kyle wouldn't be a bad choice. Of course we'll need a center in a year or 2 why not start developing 1 now while we have time and he'll be ready when needed.

  • JP Langley

    To preface this mock, I took BPA approach ( other than Janis in 5th )
    32. Jernigan DT FSU
    BPA and fills a need with Red Bryant being released
    64. Cooks WR OSU
    This regime likes the special talent players, and this guy has special talent. A steal this late in round 2
    128. Ellis DT Lou Tech
    With the potential losses of Bryant, Mcdonald, Mcdaniels, and Clemons, this isn't just BPA, it also fills DL need
    134. Sankey RB UW
    If Sankey falls this far, than you have some really stupid GM's out there. Easily the best all around talent at RB this year.
    160. Janis WR Sag Val ST.
    The only so-called reach in this draft, but Janis's size, speed combo intrigues me
    192. Gilmore TE CSU
    Getting a potential solid all-around TE this late is too much to pass up. Also a need with the likelihood of Miller being released due to cap.
    224. Colvin CB UO
    Seahawks seem to do quite well with late round secondary picks.
    Even though this was a BPA approach, the Hawks filled needs with every player except Sankey. Lesson is that BPA is always he best approach, as you will probably fill your needs anyways.

    DRI ARCHER

    First 4 picks would be instant starters. Will Clarke could probably start or at least earn a ton of playing time. Duncan wouldn't have much competition in the Raiders current tight ends. Archer could provide a change of pace for Rashad Jennings and Latavius Murray.

  • T.R.

    I like it. 2 guys who played their college football in Florida get to be the foundation for a Florida NFL teams future. Bortles may be raw but having 2 big targets like Benjamin and Justin Blackmon will make things easier on him. They would be fun to watch because all 3 players have "prototypical" bodies. They can all make plays with what they were born with. They will frustrate defenses on a lot of plays.

  • Kerry Corn

    16
    DT TIMMY JERNIGAN
    FLORIDA STATE- Donald gone, need more of a 3 tech. Jernigan is a better than decent consolation prize.
    47
    DE SCOTT CRICHTON
    OREGON STATE- Crichton is a very good pass rusher with servicable skills in the run game.
    78
    OT JOEL BITONIO
    NEVADA- Bitonio has had a very good showing at the combine, Dallas needs to improve it's right side offensive line play, with a qb who has a bad back, taking this guy here keeps Romo upright
    115
    DT CARAUN REID
    PRINCETON- Needing depth is one thing, adding a smart, strong and productive guy at the position is just good gameplanning. Marinelli ought to enjoy the immediate improvement of the overall DT play.
    146
    QB A.J. MCCARRON
    ALABAMA- Mccarron is a smart pick, Orton can ride off into the sunset and Mccarron can be our clipboard holder for a season.
    206
    G CHRIS BURNETTE
    GEORGIA- His skills are an improvement over the overpaid Bernadeau, he's a good G, who has tons of upside and great character.
    208
    DE LARRY WEBSTER
    BLOOMSBURG- This guy was my gem, now he's being talked about because of his combine performance. He's probably moved himself up on everyone's draft board, Still, getting him here is a absolute freaking steal.
    215
    WR JALEN SAUNDERS
    OKLAHOMA- Depth at the position for Dallas is weak and while he's undersized, he's also a playmaker. I'll take a flyer on the tiny guy who's brimming with potential production.

    I like this one. Stealing like this out on the street gets you arrested and put away for a long time! Great value throughout. Jernigan at 32 is a very good get. But I particularly like the last two picks. After watching Gilmore during the E-W Game week and then during his limited Senior Bowl week, I think he is a tight end name we will being hearing a lot of in the coming years. And taking Colvin in the 7th round is smart. Yeah, the injury at the Senior Bowl probably means that he's not going to make much of a contribution, if any, next season. But he is clearly is not just a 7th round talent. The Seahawks can afford this luxury and in year 2, he's likely going to make a significant contribution in that Seahawks secondary.

    I like it but the Chargers need a guard, running back, and wide receiver. Especially a wide receiver in this draft, which has a ton of talent in it.

  • Scott

    Dallas Cowboys

    16
    DT AARON DONALD
    PITTSBURGH
    Immediate impact player at a position of need. Prototype 3 technique with a high motor to go attack that DL coach Marinelli likes.

    47
    DT WILL SUTTON
    ARIZONA STATE
    Position of need, he has explosive athleticism with rare quickness and movement skills. Last season had 23.5 tackles for loss becoming one of the nation’s most disruptive defensive players. Marinelli type of player.

    78
    DE JACKSON JEFFCOAT
    TEXAS
    Position of need, he has a pro-ready combination of strength, athletic ability, and size. He gets off of the line quickly, has a burst to beat his man around the corner and is strong enough to push his man back. Father played in the NFL for 15 years, good pedigree.

    115
    RB BISHOP SANKEY
    WASHINGTON
    A feature three down back prospect that possesses well-rounded skill-set: combination of quick feet, deceptive wiggle, and natural running toughness. He is good as a receiver and in pass protection. Could not pass up his talent in the 4th round.

    146
    DE KAREEM MARTIN
    NORTH CAROLINA
    When on his game he is disruptive. Sneaky foot quickness when changing directions, sufficient motor to pursue from the backside, rushes with awareness to maintain gaps. He is effective when playing from variety of alignments or from a two-point stance. Can be utilized as a rotational DE.

    206
    DE CASSIUS MARSH
    UCLA
    He is a force rushing the the passer and stopping the run. Displays a quick get off and pursuit speed. Has a fiery attitude. Can be used as a situational rush end.

    208
    G CHRIS BURNETTE
    GEORGIA
    Anchored the Georgia Offensive line, Short stocky build, strong hands to defend against the rush. Slides well laterally staying in front of his opponent and does not back down from a challenge.

    215
    OLB
    DEVON KENNARD
    USC
    Run defender, can play off blocks setting the edge forcing runs inside. Can slip blocks and make plays in the backfield. A potential steal who can rush and cover.

    Bring on the controversy… When my first pick fell, I thought, this ought to shake things up.

    16
    QB JOHNNY MANZIEL
    TEXAS A&M- Does Dallas need first round QB? No… Do I even want him? No. He would put butts in seats, which Jerry would love, but like I opened with, controversy.
    47
    OT CYRUS KOUANDJIO
    ALABAMA- Needs a little work in the pass protection game, but he's miles above Doug Free in the talent department.
    78
    DE JACKSON JEFFCOAT
    TEXAS- Keeping it in the family so to speak. Jeffcoat would work into our rotation immediately… red flag for me, durability… we have enough problems keeping talent on the field.
    115
    DT CARAUN REID
    PRINCETON- Ivy leaguer, you know he's smart, projects to the 3. High motor, good speed and average strength.
    146
    DT DANIEL MCCULLERS
    TENNESSEE 1 tech guy, Motors decent, speed for his size isn't bad, but it's his strength and instant double team draw that makes me select Mccullers. He's a beast in the run game and would free up the rest of the line into 1 on 1 matchups.
    206
    OG JOHN URSCHEL
    PENN STATE – So I have a Princeton guy and the winner of the William Campbell award… If smarts were all you needed to win a superbowl, this would be a good start. Instabilities of the Sun-Jupiter-Asteroid 3 body problem and he benched 30 reps… yeah, lets see where this goes.
    208
    RB DRI ARCHER
    KENT STATE- very small, very fast. Would have to put him in specific packages, designed plays, but the get up and go is not a coachable feature.
    215
    DE LARRY WEBSTER
    BLOOMSBURG- I've talked about this kid alot, I see him moving up by draft day.

  • Kerry Corn

    Cowboys draft

  • Kerry Corn

    Donald really showed me some things at the combine. I had some questions about his strength, but he put those to bed with force. He handled all the drills like he was participating in the cake walk at the county fair. I agree that Sankey is a hard talent to pass up, but do you draft RB when the defense was so poor? Marsh has some toughness that I like, Jeffcoat has a Cowboys lineage, as does Kennard , that would be fun to see develop. Not big on Martin or Sutton, but that's just personal preference. I like your pick of Burnette, good character as well.

  • Jimmy Barrier

    R1
    OT JAKE MATTHEWS
    TEXAS A&M High Character guy with great work ethic pairs up with last years #2 overall pick Luke Joekel. If Joekel doesn't come back with the same mobility after broken ankle in week 5 Jake is capable of starting on the left on day one.
    R2
    DE STEPHON TUITT
    NOTRE DAME Another high character player with great work ethic is another day one starter and an instant upgrade to the DL. Terrence who ?!?
    R3
    G DAKOTA DOZIER
    FURMAN Paladin in every sense of the word, and should be a day one starter at G.
    R4
    DT CARAUN REID
    PRINCETON More leadership ability even in a Rookie. Wowed at the Senior Bowl. Has the potential to immediately step into the DL rotation.
    R4
    CB ROSS COCKRELL
    DUKE Natural leader with strong work ethic. Led his Duke Bluedevils to their first bowl win since the days of Sonny Jergenson. Excellent skills in zone defence and should be immediate help in dime packages.
    R5
    QB A.J. MCCARRON
    ALABAMA Definately worth a Fifth round flier, projects as next years backup or even starter
    R5
    DE KAREEM MARTIN
    NORTH CAROLINA Too much talent to leave on the board in round 5. Projected by some as a first rounder, has the skills to become perennial Pro Bowler.
    R5
    DT DANIEL MCCULLERS
    TENNESSEE The Key to defense is the DL, and the key to the DL is a big strong space eater to smother the run. McCullers is one of the best the Draft has to offer
    R6
    DE BRENT URBAN
    VIRGINIA Can play either inside or out he should be able to help from day one
    R7
    QB CONNOR SHAW
    SOUTH CAROLINA High praise from Steve Spurrier is almost non-existent . High work ethic with physical talents could unseat McCarron as the 3rd QB

    Over the last 10 yrs. the Jags have the worst Draft record in the NFL. At this point in time what this team needs is a solid foundation of High Character players who will be committed to getting to the next level. All these players have displayed both character and leadership while displaying the skill set to be ranked at, or near, the top of their respective positions.
    BIG BOARD

  • Jimmy Barrier

    any of the WR's that were within reach were just that. with improved OL, DL, Secondary, and maybe a FA ( Eric Decker) the SuperChargers could win it all.

  • Jimmy Barrier

    I like it except for Jeffcoat in the third. He's too light for the line and too rigid for OLB. Look at tape of Dakota Dozier……if he's there in 3………..

    NEW YORK GIANTS

    TOP NEEDS (CB, TE, OL, WR)

    12

    WR

    MIKE EVANS

    TEXAS A&M
    This pick will determine their draft. The giants can go 3 ways with this pick, OL, TE or WR. Since Evans was still there at 12 i chose him over Lewan or Ebron. This guy is big and strong, two things the giants lack at WR. Manning needs a big target, it has been shown when he panics he throws high to expected routes of WR, unfortuantely we dont have Toomer or Burress anymore to collect the pieces so i believe Evans can do well. His reading of the D is impressive and can sync with Manning very well on play breakdowns.

    43

    CB

    JASON VERRETT

    TCU
    This pick is chosen as Giants need men at CB. With only Amukmara, James and Hosley on the roster and not many high quality corners in free agency i see them going CB here. Verrett is the highest rated CB available at 2nd Round. Could be a solid starter opposite amukamara, especially if they dont resign Mcbride or Thomas.

    74

    OT

    JOEL BITONIO

    NEVADA
    This pick is chosen for depth and versatility. Bitonio is a beast and a warrior, able to play at both OT and G. This is what the giants appreciate most on the O line. I see Bitonio as the ideal player to add competition for the Guard and Right tackle spot, and if the Giants are unable to pick up a second quality Guard and Snee gets injured/cut then i can see bitonio playing inside pugh.

    109

    TE

    C.J. FIEDOROWICZ

    IOWA
    Another vital need for the Giants is the TE position. Since Ebron went in 1st round, i decided to chose late for a TE. Out of all the TE'S i see Fiedorowicz with the most to gain for the draft stock he was given.

    140

    C

    TYLER LARSEN

    UTAH STATE
    Another depth and competition player here with Larsen for C. With Alex Mack of the browns expecting big money i can see Giants keeping Baas and adding a rookie as a backup. Knowing Baas's injury history i predict Larsen could get a few games in the second half of the season. Larsen was a beast at the combine, Showed lots of strength during the benchpress and has good feet for a center. Gabe Ikard was my 2nd choice but i decided upon Larsen based purely off strength.

    171

    RB

    JERICK MCKINNON

    GEORGIA SOUTHERN
    This pick is a steal!! Mckinnon was a standout performer at rb at the combine. Compared to micheal cox, this guy is a world beater. My top rb in this draft is Jeremy Hill or Carlos Hyde, but i see Mckinnon as the ideal rb for the giants, strong and fast. The next Jacobs in the making.

    Cleveland Browns
    4 DE JADEVEON CLOWNEY SOUTH CAROLINA Probably the best athlete in the last 5 drafts. If Barkevious Mingo can begin to reach the promise that the old regime envisioned for him, he and Clowney would make one of the greatest set of QB harassers EVER!
    26 QB DEREK CARR FRESNO STATE- Need meets value…if necessary can learn behind Hoyer.
    35 G XAVIER SU’A-FILO UCLA – Keep hearing that our offensive line is solid, but our Guard play last year killed us. Almost drafted Yankey instead of Derek Carr and then would have also drafted Xavier SU'A-Filo if available. That's how bad our interior OL was last year.
    71 ILB CHRISTIAN JONES FLORIDA STATE – D'Qwell Jackson's Era is over…Jones is a great replacement for the ILB position.
    83 WR JARED ABBREDERIS WISCONSIN – On the other side of Josh Gordon the Browns will have another match-up nightmare for CBs and Safeties. All Carr will need to do is throw high for any of his receivers or Tight Ends. Red Zone efficiency will improve immediately!
    102 RB CARLOS HYDE OHIO STATE – Many Cleveland fans are also Buckeye fans. Carlos is well-balanced and strong for AFC North winter weather.
    123 CB BASHAUD BREELAND CLEMSON – Browns need a strong CB on the opposite side of Joe Haden…Breeland would be an immediate upgrade from Skrine and would allow Buster to switch into the Nickel where he excels.
    133 S C.J.BARNETT OHIO STATE- Urban Meyer called CJ Barnett the best defender for the Buckeyes last year…Bradley Roby is higher rated but Barnett could be a find this late in the draft…if TJ Ward doesn't resign and Byrd doesn't come over from Buffalo, we will need more depth in the secondary.
    164 QB LOGAN THOMAS VIRGINIA TECH – Biggest QB in the draft…will need to be developed but with Derek Carr on board the Browns can afford to stash Thomas on the Bench and develop him into a viable back-up or potential insurance policy in case Derek suddenly does an impersonation of his big brother.
    195 RB DRI ARCHER KENT STATE- Fastest guy in the Draft. Could fill a need as a third down change-up back and also help on special teams. Kyle Shanahan could also play with using him in the slot and in all sorts of exotic formations.

    Round 3 #89- Jarvis Landry WR LSU: Drops down to 3rd round, has incredibly strong hands, route running is crisp!
    Round 4 #121- Chris Watt G Notre Dame: Versatile player, Played tackle and guard throughout career
    Round 5 #153- Chris Davis CB AUBURN: San Diego needs a guy that can return kicks and punts effectively, and this will add depth to the position
    Round 6 #185- Ryan Carrethers DT ARKANSAS STATE, huge body guy that can impact the defense in a positive way
    Round 7 #217- Tyler Gaffney RB STANFORD, reminds me of Toby Gerhart from Minnesota, trustable and can be a durable backup/role player in the NFL

    Chiefs

    23 CALVIN PRYOR- i doubt he falls this far but if he does we need to grab him

    87 JACKSON JEFFCOAT- with us most likley letting tyson jackson go we need a new DE with some life in him that can get to the qb and with how he played in his senior year i believe he could do it

    123 LAMIN BARROW- Derrick johnson isnt getting any younger and neither is tambi hali we need to start getting some young guys in our LB corps for the future

    151 MIKE DAVIS- I am surprised he is always this low in the draft but he fits andy reids system and would help fill our WR role

    177 MICHAEL SCHOFIELD- With Jon Asomogha and Geoff Schwartz both up for free agency we need O line help since we probably wont be able to bring back both of them i like Schofield or Brandon Linder at this point in the Draft

    184 JUSTIN BRITT- Britt has experiance [;aying at both sides of the line as a tackle and with brandon albert leaving and fisher moving to the left and stephenson on the right it will give us a small amount of depth at the position

  • Glenn

    DE KONY EALY
    Bears first pick is in a tricky spot. we need pass rushers but there are only two worth a pick this high Clowney isn't going to fall to here unless there is some divine intervention, and in this draft Ealy did . If he wasn't available I would look to trade further back in te first round and pick up another pick or two. The only other one I think that might be available here on the defensive side and impact like the Bears need is Justin Gilbert… Otherwise I am trying to move back
    Second Round
    CB KYLE FULLER
    We need secondary help and lots of it, best available CD at the time and ranked higher than this pick so good value. Could look at a DT here as well, wanted a safety..but Prior , HaHa were gone and this is a reach for Dixon…
    Third Round
    DT DOMINIQUE EASLEY
    Wanted Dixon but he was off the board, was thinking to double up on secondary help, too much of a reach, Easly was ranked higher than this , we need DT help, so again real good value
    Fourth Round
    C MARCUS MARTIN
    4th round is where I targettd to fins an offensive contributor/starter to fill a need there. I know we need defense, but can;t totally neglect the offense, I looked at TE for the Iowa one, he was gone, he would be a good compliment to Bennet, I need a center with Garza being almost done. I think this guy could start. Goof value, fills a need…isn;t that ewhat the draft is all about?
    5th Round
    CB ANTONE EXUM
    VIRIGNIA TECH For some reason I just like this guy, I have a good feeling he is going to do well. He is interesting in that he can play at 225 and be a Safety, or at 210-215 and possible be a corner… He hits. and did I mention we need a bunch of secondary help?
    6th round
    DE WILL CLARKE
    WVU Big Strong…might work as a rotation guy… might develop into something

    TE CROCKETT GILMORE
    COLORADO STATE Big Body big target…I need someone to back up Martellus Bennet… it was TE or QB here…if I was going QB I am thinking Tom Savage would work well in our offense, , big guy big arm… had a not so hot year at Pitt cause he played behind a horrible line…. strong arm and accurate though…Might be a FA signing

    Raiders

    5 Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo
    36 Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida St
    67 Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame
    103 Dion Bailey, S, USC
    165 Logan Thomas, QB, VTech
    196 Matt Hazel, WR, Costal Carolina
    212 Brandon Linder, G, Miami

    Bridgewater, Bortles, and Watkins went before I picked so I went with Mack as best player available (not a fan of Clowney and Manziel). For the Raiders almost every position is a need or can be upgraded. Mack would instantly be a starter and help in many ways. Jernigan falling that far would be amazing. He would be a day one starter. Tuitt could play inside or outside and also start immediately. Pairing Tuitt and Jernigan with Lamarr Houston (assuming they re-sign him) would instantly turn a bad D-line around. Not to mention Mack, Roach, Moore (or Burnett) would round out a nice front seven. Bailey could compete for a starting job or nickel package playing time. They have to replace Charles Woodson one day. Thomas can sit behind Matt McGloin/Mark Sanchez/Matt Schaub/Michael Vick/whoever and try to develop his immense talent the right way. Hazel and Linder can compete for playing time against two very weak position groups. My fellow Raider fans its time to be real, our "young and talented" receiving corp is not developing. How long are you willing to wait for Denarius Moore or Jacoby Ford to turn it on? Also when Mike Brisel and Lucas Nix were starting we had the two worst starting guards in the NFL. 64 starting guards. We started numbers 63 and 64 (and it wasn't until Khalif Barnes took over that the position improved. Yes the same Khalif Barnes that every Raider fan wants to see replaced every offseason). Linder as a 7th round pick would have a real chance to start…unfortunately.

    If this draft happened at least our defense would have an identity. We would have a big talented and versatile line with a dynamic linebacking corp. Mack and Sio Moore could provide a nice pass rushing duo on either side. With an honest front seven on the field our secondary would have a fair chance to show how good they really are (hoping they re-sign Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins).

    MIAMI DOLPHINS

    TOP NEEDS: OT, G, DT

    With the 19th pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

    Everyone is guessing: Why waste a 1st round pick on a QB when you have Ryan Tannehill?
    My obvious answer is he was BPA and Dolphins' roster needs talent, not spot-fillers. Unless something strange happens this won't be truth, as Manziel surely will be gone within the first ten picks of the draft, but if he's available here it's a no-brain pick as Johnny Football opens a lot of trade options for the franchise while forcing Tannehill to step up.

    With the 50th pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State

    I understand several fans would be smashing their heads or pulling hairs if true GM picks this way, but I have seen enough of Daniel Thomas and want a new RB more than patching the right side of my O-Line with high profile rookies. Dolphins will fill the roster, but draft won't be the only way to do it. Free agency offers better ways to replace Johnathan Martin and Richie Incognito.
    Carlos Hyde looks promising as the next BEAST! of the game.

    With the 81st pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Ja'Wuan James, OT, Tennessee

    I've said Dolphins will fill the O-Line holes, but this part of draft is where future projects start and Ja'Wuan James is more than capable of winning a starting spot as RT or RG while developing before moving to the other side in a year or two.

    With the 112th pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forrest

    During the combine I anticipated there could be someone resembling a famous star. In this case it was a clone of Wes Welker and his name is Michael Campanaro. Great moves, fantastic hands and looks sure while running his route.

    With the 143rd pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Crockett Gillmore, TE, Colorado State

    When the page showed him available, I assumed something was wrong. Crocket Gillmore is one of the most obvious targets of the Patriots and picking him at 5th round is almost robbery. The guy is super fast, has great size, fine hands and looks smart enough to adjust pretty soon into WCO and pro football.

    With the 174th pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Michael Schofield, G, Michigan

    This was a hard decision as I was looking for defensive talent, someone to fill as long term project on the DL, but Schofield jumped as potential starter for the RG spot, allowing new GM to clear needs and allowing coaches to use practice squad on DL projects.

    With the 211th pick of the 2014 draft, the Miami Dolphins select Dri Archer, RB, Kent State

    What? It's so strange to have the fastest guy at combine available as 7th rounder, so it was the cherry of my cake.

    CLEVELAND CLOWNS

    Positions we don't need – WR1, CB1, LT, TE, DT, OLB (This was a shorter list than what we need.)

    Also trying like hell to resign T.J. Ward and Alex Mack. We haven't had many Pro-Bowlers in the last 15 years and it'd be a shame to lose them. We also don't need any more holes to fill. (ahem D'Qwell)

    Top Free Agent Targets:

    Brent Grimes (CB)- Buster Skrine did show improvement last year. He went from 'REALLY bad' to 'just plain bad.'

    Zane Beadles (G) – Shawn Lauvao is a free agent now and won't be missed much.

    Zach Streif (T) – Mitchell Schwartz improved at RT toward the end of the season, but would look a whole lot better as a back-up.

    Wesley Woodyard (ILB) – A 3-4 defense requires 2 ILB's and the Browns don't currently have any that are competent. Sure glad we saved that $6 million by cutting D'Qwell Jackson. $47 million in cap space just wasn't gonna cut it this year.

    Toby Gerhart / Ben Tate (RB) – The Browns don't currently have an NFL caliber RB on the roster. (Edwin Baker only seemed good to us last year because he's the best we've seen since Peyton Hillis got career-ending strep throat.)

    Draft Day (a.k.a. the Cleveland Super Bowl)

    4. WR – SAMMY WATKINS – CLEMSON (Watkins, Gordon, and Cameron would be a scary trio of receivers. After 15 years of questioning whether our QB's suck because they have no weapons to throw to, we can now firmly declare, "Yes, our quarterbacks just plain suck!")

    *NOTE – If Clowney is still on the board at #4, trade down with Atlanta for more picks later. Oakland will probably take a QB, so Watkins should still be there at #6.

    26. QB – DEREK CARR – FRESNO STATE (Seems like he really has the potential to develop into a good NFL starting quarterback with a year or two to learn and develop sitting behind Hoyer. Unfortunately, he gets thrown into the starting role 3 games into the season and never recovers from the traumatic event. "With the 1st pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon.")

    35. G – XAVIER SU’A-FILO – UCLA (We need more big men for when our starting big men get broken.)

    71. CB – BRADLEY ROBY – OHIO STATE (Had a bit of a tough year at OSU, but nothing a little Joe Haden coaching can't fix. Maybe we wouldn't have to see Buster Skrine at all this year!)

    83. ILB – SHAYNE SKOV – STANFORD (Would be a great complement to Woodyard in the middle of the defense.)

    102. RB – CARLOS HYDE – OHIO STATE (Gerhart/Tate + Hyde + Thomas (see pick 164) = a real NFL-caliber rushing attack with a little depth.)

    123. CB – RASHAAD REYNOLDS – OREGON STATE (This pick should secure Skrine's spot on the bench)

    133. ILB – MAX BULLOUGH – MICHIGAN STATE (Depth, depth, depth)

    164. RB – DE’ANTHONY THOMAS – OREGON (See pick #102)

    195. RB – DRI ARCHER – KENT STATE (Our very own Darren Sproles? Yes, please! Archer is a serious playmaking threat and can be lined up anywhere on the field. He can also return kicks when Travis Benjamin gets hurt.)

  • JP Langley

    Seattle Seahawks need based draft.
    Now that some moves have been made with the release of some players ( Bryant, Rice ) and potential release of a few others ( Clemons,
    Miller ) as well as probable/possible FA losses ( McDaniel, McDonald, Tate), the draft needs become a little more defined.
    As such this mock was done on more my perception of what the Hawks need.
    Needs being WR, DL, OL, TE in no particular order.
    1-32. Mathews WR Vanderbilt
    One of the biggest weakness of the offense was the inability to score TD's while in the red zone on a consistent basis. The choices for WR were Mathews, Cooks, and Lee. Lee I'm not enamored with, but it was difficult to choose between Cooks and Matthews. Ended of choosing Mathews because of his advance route running and the fact that Cooks looks to be a clone of Percy Harvin.
    2-64. Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    As stated above, the 'Hawks could lose as many as 4 DL during this offseason. I fully expect them to sign/resign a couple of FA's but as Tuitt was available this late, I couldn't pass him up. I believe he could immediately take the place of Bryant in the Starting DL and is a great value at this point in the draft.
    4-128 Uko DE USC
    One thing the 'Hawks love is versatility. Uko fits the bill, as he played every position on the DL during his time at USC. Also helps in re-establishing the DL depth that made the 'Hawks defense what it turned out to be.
    5-134 Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.
    This player is the type of player that the "Hawks like, his workout at the combine was impressive to say the least. 6'3" runs 4.42 40, 3.98 shuttle, and 6.64 cone, 37 1//2 in vertical. This kid has great athletic ability and would add another nice redzone target for Wilson to throw too. This kid could be a star but is undervalued because of his small school heritage.
    5. 160 Wentworth OT Fresno State
    Brent Giacomini could be leaving via FA so this pick would fill the need for depth at OT. He would get a chance to compete for the starting job with Bowie, and Bailey.
    6-192 Gilmore TE Colorado State
    Seahawks do have a major need at TE even if Miller stays ( which might not happen due to his cap #) In all actuality, Gilmore kind of reminds me of Miller. Same type of all around skill set. Would be nice for Hawks to use some 3 TE sets.
    7-224 Archer RB/WR/KR Kent St.
    Another pick the 'Hawks make because of one special talent. In this case Speed. could end up being a Sproles type of back with the ability to return punts and play special teams early on. Punt returner could be a major need if Tate were to leave in FA.
    In conclusion this drat took care of all of the needs the Seahawks have with the bonus of a couple of late round picks who could be special players. 2 DL that can play any of the line positions, 2 fast and tall WR for the redzone problems of the past year, an OT who would compete for starting job, and a TE that has the talent to replace the incumbent or play alongside in 3 TE sets. All in all a pretty good draft. Would be quite happy if the Seahawks could pull something like this off.

    Miami Dolphins
    Offensive line wont be unaddressed going into the draft. At least, DolPhans expect shelling out millions for a veteran LT and possibly a worthy Guard. Tannehill should thrive with time to throw. NT is looking suspect as both Big Paulie and Starks are free agents and may test the free agency frenzy. If they prove to be too expensive, MIA may need the likes of A. Donald or T. Jernigan. My main concern right now would be re-signing B. Grimey(Grimes)! Enough jaw jacking….
    OL, NT, TE

    RD 1 Pk 19 TAYLOR LEWAN OT MICH.
    After seeing the combine, I was sold! I usually like BPA in the first. As the days lead up to the draft, I'm not only filling a glaring need but also maybe going BPA. The FO may choose to go Vet. on the left side, but if they don't….
    RD 2 Pk 50 AUSTIN SEFARAN-JENKINS TE WASH.
    Obvious RZ threat that DolPhans and Tannehill sorely missed last season. Former B-ball player, super tall and can go get it. Should fit well with the CLAYmaker on 2 tight end sets….
    RD 3 Pk 81 BRANDON THOMAS G CLEMSON
    Should be plug and play Guard for an OL in dire need of help. Pulls well for zone blocking and WCO. Instant upgrade….
    RD 4 Pk 112 ANTHONY JOHNSON DT LSU
    Possible rotational DT/depth if we can re-sign either Solia or Starks. If not, we get competition for the remaining DTs. Somebody besides/including Odrick will have to plug the gaps….
    RD 5 Pk 143 KAREEM MARTIN DE NC
    I know, I know ! We are loaded with DEs, but Martin has too much upside to ignore. He is beast when motivated and will fit in nicely with Cam Wake, O. Vernon ("U" Know), D. Shelby, and the underused Dion Jordan. Never too many pass rushers ! ….
    RD 6 Pk 174 SEANTRELL HENDERSON OT "U" KNOW

    Never quite met expectations in Miami, but keeping him home with our new and very much improved OL coach Benton may motivate him to show up and show out. Tons of potential with the ideal size to boot. If not, we need depth anyways….

    82 S TERRENCE BROOKS FLORIDA STATE-Unlike most Bears fans I still have some confidence in Conte and would like to have Wright back to see how they do if we could fix the D-line, but if not Brooks could step in.
    113 DT CARAUN REID PRINCETON-Reid would be a developmental project but I like what I've seen so far.
    144 DE KAREEM MARTIN NORTH CAROLINA-A rotational guy for a few years who could develop into something.
    167 DE WILL CLARKE WVU-Back to back DE picks isn't perfect but if you're going to double up why not at a spot that needs the rotational bodies.
    175 C GABE IKARD OKLAHOMA-Resigning Garza was a must, but finding a potential replacement is also a must. Ikard is smart and knows how to play the position.

  • finMANN

    Living in Savannah, Ga, I get my share of Jags games. I might see more live games with this draft. Still prefer Teddy FOOTBALL, but Bortles' good size and big arm would be fun to watch with the champ (K.Beng) and "Git ya Mind Right" J Black. Good OL picks and RB. Smith and Aikens nice. Lyerla in the 7th may be the steal of the draft 2 yrs from now!

    Safety was a disaster for the Packers and they need a guy like Pryor who's faster, tougher and more explosive than any other player on the Packers defense that doesn't wear number 52.

    Rnd 2 (53):
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE) Washington
    Packers may or may not bring back Jermichael Finley either way he's still coming back from spinal fusion so they need a backup plan and ASJ was the best player available at the time.

    Rnd 3 (85):
    Chris Borland (ILB) Wisconsin
    The inside linebacker spot opposite AJ Hawk has been a carousel for the last 4 years and Hawk doesn't have much time left either so they get a young, smart and explosive player to quarterback the defense.

    Rnd 4 (117):
    Demarcus Lawrence (DE) Boise State
    Lawrence will be converted to a 3-4 OLB as the linebacking corps was decimated last season to the point where 1st round pick Datone Jones had to play linebacker.

    Rnd 5 (149):
    Deandre Coleman (NT) California
    BJ Raji is leaving as he hasn't produced for the last 2 years so they get Coleman who can work from the zero technique and be a true nose tackle Raji never became.

    Rnd 6 (181):
    Phillip Gaines (CB) Rice
    Sam Shields will test free agency and even if he comes back to the Packers they need depth as Tramon Williams may not be around for long and Davon House never reached his potential

    Rnd 7 (213):
    Jalen Saunders (WR) Oklahoma
    Packers need to find a kick returner and Saunders has the blazing speed to become a good one in the NFL.

  • Ryan Keeling

    Dallas Cowboys 5 rd Mock:

    16 WR SAMMY WATKINS, How Watkins falls to 16…I have no clue.

    47 G XAVIER SU’A-FILO, Super athletic, perfect fit for the zone scheme. Now all we need is a right tackle and the o-line is set for 10 yrs.

    78 DT WILL SUTTON, Huge value in the 3rd. If we can get him to play in the 290lbs range has the potential to be a superstar 3 tech.

    115 DE DEMARCUS LAWRENCE, A little undersized for DE in the 4-3 but good athlete and his frame looks as though he could add weight. Most likely a situational pass russer.

    146 DE KAREEM MARTIN, Prototypical size and I think he's a steal in the 5th. Probably starts over Selvie.

    My mock is based on gaining FA pick ups of OG, OT, WR of starter caliber (names to be debated) along with CB and ILB of high backup grade to potential starter (again, names to be debated) as well as resigning both Mack and Ward and the hopeful full recovery of Chris Falk (OT) returning to his pre-injury 1st/2nd round grade form. This is what I came up with.
    4. Sammy Watkins – WR
    Best in draft
    26. Eric Ebron – TE
    Best in draft
    35. Xavier Su'a-Filo – OG
    Could have gone with Yankee, but I think Su'a-Filo has better upside
    71. Christian Jones – ILB
    Tremendous untapped potential, be up to Pettine to get it out of him
    83. Jalen Watkins – CB
    Better CB then gets credit for, another Fla prospect
    102. Carlos Hyde – RB
    With Shanny on board, expect some UDFA RB to surprise and complete unit, but this one's a no brainer
    123. Yawin Smallwood – ILB
    Very underrated player, sideline to sideline guy
    133. Hakeem Smith – S
    Depth with potential
    164. Logan Thomas – QB
    Meets Pettine's criteria for QB and, if his mechanics can be fixed, franchise caliber player
    195. Colt Lyerla – TE
    Troubled but highly talented player, worth the risk of a 7th
    This brings in a bunch of weapons and will set up to prove if Hoyer is "the guy" or we mortgage the farm next year to get "our guy". I would not go RB in FA, there's just too many coming from nowhere (UDFA's, late round picks, etc.) to get spend happy in FA, just not worth the investment.

  • Kevin

    Not a bad draft.. Not sure a QB will be drafted at all this year by Keim and Co.

    Here is my draft…

    20 OT TAYLOR LEWAN MICHIGAN
    52 S DEONE BUCANNON WASHINGTON STATE
    84 DE/OLB DEMARCUS LAWRENCE BOISE STATE
    116 CB KEITH MCGILL UTAH
    148 WR BRUCE ELLINGTON SOUTH CAROLINA
    180 C RUSSELL BODINE NORTH CAROLINA

    This draft was done using BPA like the Cue Ball brothers like to do, while also filling needs.

    What do you all think?

  • Ryan Keeling

    Cowboys 7rd Mock:

    16

    DT

    AARON DONALD

    PITTSBURGH
    This is the obvious pick. Perfect scheme fit and hell of a football player. Most likely wont happen the way he's flying up draft boards though.

    47

    G

    XAVIER SU’A-FILO

    UCLA
    Again perfect scheme fit. Super athletic, quick footed and strong.

    78

    DT

    KELCY QUARLES

    SOUTH CAROLINA
    Extra depth at DT, exactly what the boys need. Fill in at the 1 on passing downs and back up Donald at the 3 on 1st and 2nd down.

    115

    WR

    BRANDON COLEMAN

    RUTGERS
    Doesn't have elite speed, but fast enough to stretch the defense and has the height to go up and get it. If Dez were to get hurt he could fill in at your X and let T-WIl stay as your Z.

    146

    CB

    ANTONE EXUM

    VIRIGNIA TECH
    I don't want to give up on either of the two corners the boys have drafted the last two years(Claiborne and Webb) just yet, but Exum has high upside and if 1 or both of the previously mentioned draft picks ends up struggling again then the depth is definitely needed.

    206

    RB

    RAJION NEAL

    TENNESSEE
    You know Murray won't play a full 16 games and I'll just say it right now, I don't like Joseph Randle. Neal looks good in pass protection my only question is whether he can catch the ball.

    208

    ILB

    JEREMIAH GEORGE

    IOWA STATE
    Good speed and instincts. Needs to add weight and strength though. Could see him backing up Sean Lee at the mike but also has the speed and coverage skills to play the will as well.

    215

    WR

    SHAQ EVANS

    UCLA
    Good speed, good hands.

    Texans 7 round mock….. (i believe our new coach will pick up a free agent QB with some experience so here goes)

    1
    DE JADEVEON CLOWNEY
    SOUTH CAROLINA ~ best player available, couple him with JJ Watt….. problems for opposing offensives on who to double team… Release the hounds!

    33
    S HA’SEAN CLINTON-DIX
    ALABAMA ~ an excellent free safety that fills a need after Ed Reed

    65
    CB E.J. GAINES
    MISSOURI ~ our new slot corner, bye bye Brice McCain

    97
    ILB YAWIN SMALLWOOD
    UCONN ~ this solve the problem with the revolving door at ILB next to Brian Cushing

    129
    DT DANIEL MCCULLERS
    TENNESSEE ~ finally, a true 0 technique, since the Texans are switching to a more traditional 3-4, plus great value

    161
    OT CORNELIUS LUCAS
    KANSAS STATE ~ the problem with the Texan's offense wasn't necessarily the QB, it was the line. this pick will compete with Brennan Williams for the starting RT spot.

    193
    TE MARCEL JENSEN
    FRESNO STATE ~ Gronk 2.0, a TD catching machine, a steal for the 7th round too

    i believe i got 4 starters and 2 heavy rotational guys.

  • http://www.aceindustrial.com/ Mark C.

    hey, slow down there Nick, with picks like that Cleveland might start winning games and competing in the AFC North. Why change now?

  • Daniel Budd

    Detroit Lions 4 RD mock draft. The Lions don't have a 5th RD pick this year, and I probably wouldn't know most of the guys who will get drafted in rounds 6-7. But if the Lions got these four guys…ohhhh man.

    10
    OLB KHALIL MACK
    BUFFALO- IF, and only if, Mack falls to the Lions, this would be an absolute steal. Behind one of the best defensive lines in the league, paired with Deandre Levy and Stephon Tulloch, the Lions front 7 would be downright scary.
    45
    WR KELVIN BENJAMIN
    FLORIDA STATE-Calvin Johnson like size but slower with great instincts. He'll have to develop his hands and focus on catching before running, but he has all the skills to become a solid No. 2 receiver opposite Megatron.
    76
    TE TROY NIKLAS
    NOTRE DAME-With Brandon Pettigrew soon to be out of the picture, Niklas (nicknamed Hercules) would be the perfect replacement. He has good hands, he's massive and with a little coaching, could become a very solid run-blocker.

    107
    S CRAIG LOSTON
    LSU-Probably the best DB available at this point in the draft. High football IQ. Coverage skills need a little work but a proven tackler and a vocal leader.
    If the Lions were to pull these four guys in the draft, they would surely score an "A" for the second year in a row by most analysts.

  • Kevin Norman

    I liked it until you said you wanted Major Wright back and had confidence in Conte…..SMH

  • Kevin Norman

    14

    DT

    AARON DONALD

    PITTSBURGH

    Donald fills the need at DT especially if they bring Melton back.

    51

    S

    JIMMIE WARD

    NORTHERN ILLINOIS

    Ward steps right into a starting position. Both safeties were horrible last season so drafting ward and signing another in FA is a good start.

    82

    CB

    BASHAUD BREELAND

    CLEMSON

    I think Tillman comes back bu Breeland would be a nice nickleback and provide depth. Im not sold Kelvin Hayden will stay healthy.

    113

    DE

    DEMARCUS LAWRENCE

    BOISE STATE

    Rotational player who could have nice upside.

    144

    ILB

    MAX BULLOUGH

    MICHIGAN STATE

    Bostic struggled so Bullough could compete for a starting job in the middle and Bostic could move outside. Even if Bullough isnt ready, DJ Williams could be brought back for a year.

    167

    RB

    DE’ANTHONY THOMAS

    OREGON

    May best fit at WR but hes dynamic playmaker who could be another weapon in return game.

    175

    QB

    LOGAN THOMAS

    VIRGINIA TECH

    Nice developmental project for Trestman. Thomas had a great showing thus far and may move up on draft boards.

  • Andrew Blaeser

    Minnesota Vikings 7RD Mock:

    R1P8 – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

    R2P40 – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida St
    R3P72 – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio St
    R3P96 – QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois
    R4P104 – RB Lache Seastrunk, Baylor
    R5P136 – DE Brent Urban, Virginia
    R6P168 – ILB Preston Brown, Louisville
    R7P200 – DE Jeoffrey Pagan, Alabama

    After doing a couple mocks I was very happy with this one. As a Vikings fan I would not mind this at all on draft day.

  • Andrew Blaeser

    I think that we've learned our lesson with Ponder: Reaching for a QB in the first round is not a good idea. I say build up that defense if we can't get Bortles at the top of the draft.

    Cleveland Browns 7 round draft
    4 ILB C.J. MOSLEY (ALABAMA)-I actually believe the Browns will trade back with Miami at #8 and take CJ Mosley; but if they take
    him here it's not a major reach and a major, major hole will be filled.
    26 G DAVID YANKEY (STANFORD)-Anyone who praises the Cleveland OL has never looked at the weak production from the guard
    position. We need to upgrade starters at both sides.
    35 G XAVIER SU’A-FILO (UCLA)-I really was not kidding about the need for upgrades…if we managed to get both of these guys, I'd be
    ecstatic!
    71 CB STANLEY JEAN- BAPTISTE (NEBRASKA)-Joe Haden is a very good CB but a bit short…Buster Skrine is best suited for the
    nickel position and is also vertically challenged…Jean-Baptiste would give us a tall corner to match up with the big receivers in the
    NFL and would immediately upgrade our Secondary.
    83 WR JARED ABBREDERIS (WISCONSIN)-Abbrederis would give us a huge receiver opposite Josh Gordon…we thought we had this
    guy in Greg Little, but Abbrederis will actually CATCH the ball.
    102 RB CARLOS HYDE (OHIO STATE)-Possibly the best running back in the draft in 4th round? What's not to like? Add in the fact that
    Cleveland fans LOVE Ohio State and this is a really great pick at a position of incredible need. The Trent Richardson trade was
    fantastic but we never addressed the huge hole in our running game.
    123 S C.J.BARNETT (OHIO STATE)-Urban Meyer says that Barnett was the best defender on the OSU Roster last year…A defense
    that included Bradley Roby…We need safety help whether we resign TJ Ward or not.
    133 ILB MAX BULLOUGH (MICHIGAN STATE)-Even with Mosley…our ILB spot was a major weakness and Robertson (our only
    returning ILB) can't cover. This would be valuable depth.
    164 RB DE’ANTHONY THOMAS (OREGON)-Carlos Hyde would bring us an every-down THUNDER back and Thomas would be our
    version of Lightning. Dion Lewis looked pretty good before getting injured, but the kind of speed that Thomas brings to an offense is
    such a weapon.
    195 WR L’DAMIAN WASHINGTON (MISSOURI)-L'Damian Washington is another HUGE and FAST receiver. After Josh Gordon we
    basically have no one to depend upon. The athleticism of Washington makes him a very reasonable risk at this point of the draft.

  • Rick Hamby

    I figured that would be a point of contention, but when looking at Wright/Conte's 2013 season you really have to wonder how much was a result of them having to try and make up for the dline gwtginv no pressure. So many times last year opposing QBs had double or triple the time they should have. After 2012 it looked like these guys were the future and after 2013 the price will be low enough to go after dline help and even add depth at Safety. If the worst thing to happen ends up being both guys get beat out it would be nice having them as backups.
