Mock Draft 7.0

Houston #1: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. I keep on going back and forth on who this will be. I'm saying Clowney for right now. Him and J.J. Watt would make a very scary tandem at DE.

Cleveland (from Washington via St. Louis) #2: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. I still think this is the most likely trade for St. Louis. They trade down and let Cleveland take Manziel.

Jacksonville #3: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida. Jacksonville gets their franchise QB here at #3.

Minnesota (from Cleveland via St. Louis) #4: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville. I know. You don't think St. Louis would trade down twice. But they did do that back in the 2012 draft. They traded away from RGIII. Then they traded down with Dallas and Dallas got Morris Claiborne. Either way, Minnesota gets their QB.

Oakland #5: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson. With none of the best QB's available, Oakland gets one of the best players in this draft.

Atlanta #6: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn. Atlanta lets the best OT fall onto their lap.

Tampa Bay #7: Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo. It's between OT and LB for Tampa. They decide to take the best LB in this draft.

St. Louis (from Minnesota) #8: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M. Well talk about lucky for St. Louis. They collect a couple of nice extra picks from Minnesota and Cleveland and get one of the players who is in contention to be their pick if they stay at #2.

Buffalo #9: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M. Mike Evans would be a great complement to Robert Woods in Buffalo.

Detroit #10: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State. Detroit needs a CB and Gilbert is the best CB in this whole draft.

Tennessee #11: C.J. Mosely, LB, Alabama. Tennessee gets a very good LB. He can pass rusher, cover, and stop the run.

New York Giants #12: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA. When someone leaves, replace it. Justin Tuck might leave, so they need someone to replace his production. Barr at #12 is a great pick for value as well.

St. Louis #13: Marqise Lee, WR, USC. St. Louis needs a #1 WR, and Lee, if healthy, would do great doing that.

Chicago #14: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama. Chicago also needs a S, along with a DT. They decide on Clinton-Dix over Timmy Jernigan.

Pittsburgh #15: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State. This gives Ben Roelthisberger a decently fast and huge WR.

San Francisco (from Baltimore) #16: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota. San Fran needs a NT and they might not be there at #30, so they give Baltimore their #28 2nd rounder and #28 4th rounder.

Dallas #17: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State. Now that Jernigan doesn't go to Chicago, Dallas has no problem picking him up.

New York Jets #18: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC. The Jets need some kind of weapon for Geno Smith and Ebron is the best one available.

Miami #19: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan. Miami needs an OT, and they are lucky that Lewan falls to them at #20. Great pick for Miami.

Arizona #20: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State. Arizona needs a QB and Carr is a decent value at #20.

Green Bay #21: Stephon Tuitt, DL, Notre Dame. This is a different pick. I've been reading news on GB and I've heard they want to be more athletic on the D-Line. Nix compares to B.J. Raji, who GB will likely be letting go in FA. Tuitt is still big, but also very athletic, so he could be the pick.

Philadelphia #22: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville. They need a S and Pryor is by far the best one available here.

Kansas City #23: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. K.C. could use another TE, and Amaro is a great value pick here. Alex Smith likes to use his TE's, so they take the best TE available.

Cincinnati #24: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri. Cinci gets their replacement at DE for Michael Johnson.

San Diego #25: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State. San Diego gets the best CB available.

Cleveland (from Indianapolis) #26: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama. Cleveland takes Kouandjio to be their RT.

New Orleans #27: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn. New Orleans gets Ford to be their 3-4 OLB pass rusher.

Carolina #28: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU. Beckham gives Carolina a #2 WR and he will be able to eventually replace Steve Smith.

New England #29: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame. NE is a team that takes value. Nix is a good value at #29. Vince Wilfork is also getting older and just came off an Achilles tear.

Baltimore (from San Francisco) #30: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt. Baltimore needs a better all-around WR. Matthews would fill that role perfectly.

Denver #31: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU. Denver needs another CB and Verrett is the best one available.

Seattle #32: Zach Martin, OL, Notre Dame. Martin is the best O-Linemen available and Seattle could use another starter at OG.
