OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

Kansas City settles on Joeckel as the number #1 overall pick.

2

Jacksonville Jaguars

DE/OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

Long and freaky athletic pass rusher for new head coach Gus Bradley's revamped defense.

3

Oakland Raiders

DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida

4

Philadelphia Eagles

OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

Long-term answer at LT and eventual replacement for the aging/oft-injured Jason Peters.

5

Detroit Lions

OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma

They need a corner badly, but need a starting LT even worse.

6

Cleveland Browns

DT Star Lotulelei, Utah

Building block as the Browns transition back to a 3-4.

7

Arizona Cardinals

OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

Cardinals look to keep Palmer upright by adding size, power and athleticism to the one of the worst lines in the league.

8

Buffalo Bills

OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Buffalo reaches to replace Andy Levitre at guard; will grab their young QB later in the draft.

9

New York Jets

CB Dee Milliner, Alabama

The top CB in the draft and Revis' replacement falls right into the Jets lap.

10

Tennessee Titans

DE Ezekiel Ansah, BYU

Great young talent for a team badly in need of a pass rush.

11

San Diego Chargers

DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU

If the Chargers fail to move up to grab a top LT, they'll settle for a young pass rusher.

12

Miami Dolphins

CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida St.

Excellent replacement for the departed CB Sean Smith.

13

New York Jets

WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia

Much need weapon for Mark Sanchez and the anemic Jets offense.

14

Carolina Panthers

DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

One of the top defensive lineman in the draft for a team with a desperate need in the middle.

15

New Orleans Saints

DE/OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

The Saints begin to rebuild their historically bad defense.

16

St. Louis Rams

WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee

S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas

Hometown hero addresses huge need for the Cowboys.

20

Chicago Bears

OL D.J. Fluker, Alabama

Chicago is finally putting the right pieces in front of Jay Cutler.

21

Cincinnati Bengals

S Eric Reid, LSU

Slight reach, but much better talent than what's currently on the safety depth chart.

22

St. Louis Rams

S Jonathan Cyprien, Florida International

Safeties are flying off the board fast and furiously.

23

Minnesota Vikings

WR DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson

Hopkins definitely has the tools to develop into a #1 WR.

24

Indianapolis Colts

DE Datone Jones, UCLA

Power DE for the Colts new 3-4 scheme.

25

Minnesota Vikings

LB Arthur Brown, Kansas

It's reported that the Vikings prefer Te'o, but why would they?

Green Bay Packers

WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee

Green Bay adds another weapon for Rodgers and will address their awful defense later.

27

San Francisco 49ers

DE Tank Carradine, Florida St.

49ers jump the Broncos to get the top DE left on the board.

28

Denver Broncos

DE Bjoern Werner, Florida St.

Denver drafts Carridine's teammate to soften the blow of losing Dumervil.

29

New England Patriots

CB DJ Hayden, Houston

Patriots still need quality corners and with Hayden healthy, he's an ideal fit.

30

Atlanta Falcons

CB Marcus Trufant, Washington

Falcons get good value at corner and address their most critical need.

31

Houston Texans

WR Keenan Allen, California

After the trade down with SF, the Texans grab a solid #2 WR.

32

Baltimore Ravens

LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia

Playmaking linebacker is still a critical need.
