Kansas City settles on Joeckel as the number #1 overall pick.
DE/OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma

CB Dee Milliner, Alabama
The top CB in the draft and Revis' replacement falls right into the Jets lap.
DE Ezekiel Ansah, BYU

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

Excellent replacement for the departed CB Sean Smith.

WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Much need weapon for Mark Sanchez and the anemic Jets offense.

Power DE for the Colts new 3-4 scheme.
LB Arthur Brown, Kansas
It's reported that the Vikings prefer Te'o, but why would they?
Green Bay Packers
WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee

DE Tank Carradine, Florida St.
49ers jump the Broncos to get the top DE left on the board.
DE Bjoern Werner, Florida St.
Denver drafts Carridine's teammate to soften the blow of losing Dumervil.
