Picks 1-1617-32

  1. Oakland Raiders- QB Matt Barkley, USC

    -The Raiders are doing a complete overhaul and could be well in the running for the top overall pick. While they just invested a lot into the quarterback position, none of them were picked by the current regime.
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars- WR Robert Woods, USC

    -Despite adding Justin Blackmon in this past draft, the Jaguars could look to grab Woods here, who has elite receiver potential. There are some other directions Jacksonville could go, but Woods would be hard to pass up, especially if they are sticking by Blaine Gabbert.
  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- CB David Amerson, NC State

    -The Buccaneers filled a number of needs this past April, but one area they didn’t touch was cornerback. With Barber likely retiring and Talib in serious legal trouble Amerson would make a lot of sense here.
  4. Minnesota Vikings- WR Keenan Allen, Cal

    -The Vikings added their LT in Kalil this past April, but could use a big play weapon for Christian Ponder.
  5. Indianapolis Colts- OLB Sam Montgomery, LSU

    -The 2012 draft was about fixing their offense, which leads me to believe 2013 will be more defensive centric. Montgomery has a lot of potential as a rush linebacker, and should have immediate impact for the Colts.
  6. St. Louis Rams- OT D.J. Fluker, Alabama

    -The Rams can’t expect Sam Bradford to develop properly if they keep trotting out a sub-standard offensive line. Roger Saffold might be a solid RT and Scott Wells is a good center, but that is about it. Fluker could come in and take over the LT job.
  7. Cleveland Browns- OLB/DE Jarvis Jones, Georgia

    -The Browns added a lot of offensive talent this past draft and could look to find some defensive help next year. Finding another top pass rusher is key for their success.
  8. St. Louis Rams (via Washington)- OL Barrett Jones, Alabama

    -The Rams line is bad enough that they really need to consider spending both of their first round picks on the offensive line. Jones is versatile and can find a place at any position.
  9. Miami Dolphins-S Eric Reid, LSU

    -The Dolphins secondary is still a weakness, with their safety position particularly a concern.
  10. Seattle Seahawks- OT Chris Faulk, LSU

    -The Seahawks have used some premium picks on the offensive line recently, but it is still an area that needs addressing.
  11. Carolina Panthers- DT Star Lotuleli, Utah

    -The Panthers didn’t add any early round defensive tackles which is something I expect them to fix early next year.
  12. Buffalo Bills- CB Tyrann Mathieu, LSU

    -The Bills need to add more help in the defensive backfield and a playmaker like Mathieu could have an instant impact. This is probably a bit high for him, but I like his potential in this defense.
  13. Tennessee Titans- DE Barkevious Mingo, LSU

    -The Titans need to continue to add pass rushers and Mingo is the top one on the board.
  14. New York Jets- QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas

    -The Jets are likely to witness another poor season from Mark Sanchez, what could lead to the Jets drafting a quarterback.
  15. Arizona Cardinals- OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

    -The Cards added some offensive line talent, but could look to address this area even further in 2013.
  16. San Diego Chargers-CB Xavier Rhoades, FSU

    -The Chargers Cornerback situation won’t get any better this season and the team should look to add another early next year.
