1. Houston Texans – 2-9 – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville
It's obvious that Matt Schaub isn't the future for the Texans at QB, and if the Texans keep the #1 pick, it's got to be Bridgewater.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars – 2-9 – QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon
Mariota isn't the most polished QB in this draft, but he may have the highest upside. And the Jags need to find a true answer at QB, as Gabbert and Henne are clearly not the answers.
3. Atlanta Falcons – 2-9 – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina
The Falcons need help along the front 7, and Clowney is the best DE in this draft, and the best defensive player in this year class.
4. Minnesota Vikings – 2-8-1 – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA
The Vikings have a question mark at OLB. Is it Erin Henderson, Desmond Bishop, or who? Both are on 1-year contracts, and neither have the capability that Barr has.
5. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
The Rams have an uncertainty in Rodger Saffold at RT, and Matthews has the potential to play on the right side, and left side, so it makes sense.
6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 3-8 – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
The Buccaneers could use another top tier Tackle, so Lewan makes sense.
7. Oakland Raiders – 4-7 – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson
Might be a steal, and the Raiders lack explosiveness, and just plain great weapons, and if Terrelle Pryor is to succeed at QB, he needs better weapons.
8. Cleveland Brown – 4-7 – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M
The Browns need a franchise QB, and Manziel has the potential to be just that, and this makes sense all around.
9. New York Giants – 4-7 – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame
The Giants need many things, but DL help is at the top, in my opinion, thus Tuitt makes sense. They lost Osi Umenyiora, so this makes a lot of sense.
10. Buffalo Bills – 4-7 – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame
The Bills could use another big body DT. They have a great front 7, and great front 4. They cut Mark Anderson in the offseason, so they could have a dynamic DL in Mario Williams, Marcel Dareus, Kyle Williams, and now Louis Nix III.
11. Pittsburgh Steelers – 5-6 – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama
The Steelers have a serious need for youth along the O-Line. And Kouandjio is among the best Tackle prospects in the nation, and thus it makes sense.
12. Baltimore Ravens – 5-6 – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
The Ravens need more weapons for Joe Flacco to succeed. They traded away Anquan Boldin, who is doing great in San Francisco, so they get a dynamic WR in Evans.
13. San Diego Chargers – 5-6 – OG David Yankey, Stanford
The Chargers lost Louis Vasquez in free agency, so they have a need at Guard, and Yankey is my top OG in this class.
14. New York Jets – 5-6 – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo
The Jets need youth along the linebacker core. And Mack is a dynamic play making OLB. So it makes sense to me.
15. Tennessee Titans – 5-6 – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State
The Titans lost Cortland Finnegan 2 offseasons ago, and never really replaced him, so now they do so, by getting Roby, and teaming him with McCoutry.
16. Miami Dolphins – 5-6 – OT Cameron Erving, Florida State
It's clear Tyson Clabo isn't the answer at Tackle, so they get a young, stud LT, who has tremendous upside.
17. St. Louis Rams – 5-6 – QB Brett Hundley, UCLA
A bit of a surprise indeed. But Sam Bradford to me isn't the future. He hasn't produced, and is injury prone. This pick may not be the most likely, but it makes sense to me.
18. Green Bay Packers – 5-5-1 – CB Lochiez Purifoy, Florida
The Packers need secondary help, and CB is among the top needs. So Purifoy makes sense. Dynamic CB, who has speed, and good size.
19. Detroit Lions – 6-5 – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon
The Lions still need CB depth, and Ekpre-Olomu will step in as a starter right away.
20. Philadelphia Eagles – 6-5 – FS Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama
The Eagles are in need a true stud Safety. And Clinton-Dix is just that.
21. Chicago Bears – 6-5 – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
The Bears need to replace Brian Urlacher, who was clearly low-balled, and he decided to retire, so they get younger at ILB. And Mosley is just that, plus he can play Inside and Outside.
22. Dallas Cowboys – 6-5 – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford
The Cowboys may need a OLB/DE if Anthony Spencer leaves after 2013. Plus Murphy is younger, and cheaper compared to Spencer.
23. Cincinnati Bengals – 7-4 – OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson
The Bengals get younger at OLB, and Beasley is a dynamic pass rusher.
24. Arizona Cardinals – 7-4 – QB Zach Mettenberger, LSU
The Cards need a franchise QB, and clearly Carson Palmer isn't the future, but he can be a great mentor for Mettenberger.
25. Cleveland Browns (f/Indianapolis Colts) – WR Marqise Lee, USC
The Browns seem likely to trade Josh Gordon in the offseason, so this makes sense to get a play maker at WR.
26. San Francisco 49ers – 7-4 – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State
The 49ers need CB help, they did lock up Tramaine Brock, but Carlos Rogers has a large cap number, and could be a cap cut, and Tarell Brown could leave for more money than the 49ers can afford.
27. Carolina Panthers – 8-3 – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee
The Panthers could use a new Tackle, with Jordan Gross not exactly spectacular.
28. New England Patriots – 8-3 – DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State
The Pats could use more D-Line help. And Vince Wilfork isn't getting any younger.
29. Kansas City Chiefs – 9-2 – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State
The Chiefs need to replace Glenn Dorsey, who left for San Fran, and has played really good there, so it makes sense to get younger with Jernigan.
30. New Orleans Saints – 9-2 – DT Ra'Shede Hageman, Minnesota
The Saints need more youth among the D-Line, and Hageman is a riser, who could rise up farther come May 2014.
31. Denver Broncos – 9-2 – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State
The Broncos need more talent at OLB, and a better pass rusher, plus with so much talent, this could be a luxury pick.
32. Seattle Seahawks – 10-1 – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech
The Seahawks have struck out with Zach Miller, so they get my top TE in Amaro, a play maker.
