Version 2 - Updated March 19, 2014
QB Blake Bortles, UCF
Houston secures their QB of the future.
DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina
TRADE: Falcons give up next year's #1 pick to move up and land Clowney.
WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson
Watkins talent combined with Justin Blackmon's off-field issues make this pick a no-brainer.
QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville
Tough call between him and Manziel, but Teddy gets the nod despite his uneven pro-day.
OT Greg Robinson, Auburn
Again, tough call passing on Johnny Football, but o-line is a priority.
St. Louis Rams
OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
Rams GM Les Snead moves down, solidifies their line and gets a 2015 1st round pick.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo
Arguably the top pass rushing prospect in the draft falls into Lovie Smith's lap.
QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M
Johnny Football finally finds a home.
TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina
WR Mike Evans could go here, but the need for an athletic, playmaking TE is even greater.
CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma St.
Perfect pick for a team in dire need of CB talent.
OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
Titans look to rebuild their aging, underperforming offensive line.
New York Giants
DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh
Disruptive interior force for a thin defensive line.
St. Louis Rams
Rams are just trolling the rest of the league now on draft day.
DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida St.
Nice fit for a revamped defensive line.
OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA
Pass rush is their bread and butter and this is not a deep draft for 3-4 OLBs.
DT RaShede Hageman, Minnesota
Huge, extremely talented but very raw player to replace Jason Hatcher.
WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
Ravens add a huge downfield weapon to their offense.
New York Jets
WR Brandin Cook, Oregon St.
Perfect compliment to newly signed WR Eric Decker.
OL Zack Martin, Notre Dame
More talent for their revamped and much publicized offensive line.
LB Ryan Shazier, Ohio St.
Big, fast and athletic linebacker to replace Karlos Dansby.
Green Bay Packers
S Calvin Pryor, Louisville
Worked out perfectly for the Packers as they fill their glaring need at FS.
NT Louis Nix, Notre Dame
Quality depth behind Bennie Logan; eventual starter in the middle of their defense.
Kansas City Chiefs
OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama
With no real RT on the roster and no second round pick, the Chiefs must go offensive line here.
CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan St.
D2 falls a little, but to the benefit of the Bengals.
San Diego Chargers
CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech
Fills an obvious need for quallty CBs in the Chargers secondary.
CB Bradley Roby, Ohio St.
Eventual starter opposite Joe Haden and immediate impact at nickel and special teams.
New Orleans Saints
WR Odell Beckham, LSU
Another weapon for Brees falls into the Saints laps.
WR Marqise Lee, USC
Could use safety help, but they get great value here in the falling Lee.
QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois
TRADE: Raiders swap with the Patriots to get their QB.
San Francisco 49ers
CB Jason Verrett, TCU
Ferociously competitive, quick and athletic defensive back who will battle for the starting job as nickel corner.
LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
Badly in need of fresh talent at LB.
WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida St.
The rich get richer as the huge WR from Florida St. goes to Seattle.
