Every draft has some head scratchers and controversial picks, so I'm just trying to keep this as realistic as possible
But honestly I think Baltimore would be the perfect situation for Burfict, with Ray Lewis mentoring him.

*shrug* I just think Ozzie would be the smart one and take the best 3-4 ILB in the draft in Hightower and let Lewis mentor him instead of Burfict. Now, the Chargers on the other hand, they're a great candidate for an idiotic pick almost yearly. I could totally see them reaching for someone, just like they did for Larry English (I still can't let it go that I was SO right about him not being a first round talent and any team that took him there was in for a big let-down)
(Just to clarify, I am not calling your pick idiotic, I am simply referring to the Chargers ineptitude when I reference them).
Time to start the 2nd Round!

The St. Louis Rams select Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina
Colts select Andre Branch, DE from Clemson.
Vikings select Alfonzo Dennard CB Nebraska. They need some serious help in the pass happy NFC North.

All good. I respect your opinion and look forward to your mocks and big board every year
Tampa Bay selects OT Zebrie Sanders Florida State. That line has issues and you gotta get tackles early in the draft. Their other needs can wait till later rounds...RB, WR, another CB, LB
The Cleveland Browns select DE Vinny Curry, Marshall

With the 38th pick, the Jacksonville Jaguars select, Stephen Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

The Jags need secondary help and Gilmore offers that, immediately becoming the #2 CB for the team
The Washington Redskins select Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Washington Redskins select QB Ryan Tannehill Texas A&M....Rex Grossman isn't the answer
The Panthers add a big, fast playmaking WR with the selection of Rueben Randle, LSU.

The Buffalo Bills have many needs but take the BPA...... TE DWAYNE ALLEN CLEMSON

The Miami Dolphins select: DOUG MARTIN 5'9" 215 lbs

A thick, compact back who is built low to the ground, runs behinds his pads and is a tough guy to wrap on. Martin exhibits a good initial first step when asked to press the line of scrimmage. He isn't a dynamic straight-line athlete, but he plays faster than he times because of his ability to reach top end speed quickly. He is quicker than fast, showcasing impressive lateral fluidity and balance with the footwork to pick his way through traffic, maintain balance and make defenders miss. He's consistently able to side-step/break would be tacklers in tight areas. He creates a significant amount of yards through contact because of pad level, balance and overall lower body strength. However, he possesses the short area quickness to plant his foot in the ground at full speed, change directions and accelerate up the field. He possesses a good feel in tight areas, and is natural setting up blocks and running between the tackles. He displays a "plus" burst out of his breaks and can instantly separate from defenders in the open field. Martin likes to finish runs, drop his pad level well into contact and consistently makes himself small, allowing him to knife his way through tight holes and really run his legs through any type of contact. He's effective on the perimeter as well, setting up blocks pressing the edge and making his way toward daylight. Again, he lacks big time straight-line speed in the open field and isn't a dynamic power back who can simply push the pile at the next level and run through tackles. However, he plays more powerful than his 5-9 frame would indicate because he runs with such good leverage. Martin looks natural in blitz pick-up as well and slides his feet well laterally, is patient into contact and can anchor with success. He's comfortable out of the backfield as well plucking the football and isn't going to create one-on-one, but is effective in the screen game. Impression: Martin isn't a dynamic size/speed back, but there aren't many negatives to his game as a back. He plays fast, runs low, is natural through the line of scrimmage and has a skill set somewhat similar to former Alabama RB Mark Ingram last year. He might fall a bit because he doesn't run overly well, but he has the skill set to start in the league.

He might be the BPA but I don't think the Bills would take him. Chan Gailey's scheme does not utilize the TE in the passing game. They want their TE's to block primarily. A receiver or corner would be more likely at this spot.
