Houston #1: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida. I'm sort of swaying on whether to give Houston a QB or Jadeveon Clowney. I decided on a QB this time around. With a good QB, they're back in business. They have a good running game, O-Line, and defense. With a good QB, they might be able to make the playoffs. They need to go as far as they can before they have to give J.J. Watt a mega contract and let some others go.
St. Louis (via Washington) #2: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M. St. Louis needs an OT and Matthews is the best one available right now. Greg Robinson is creeping up on him though.
Jacksonville #3: Teddy Bridewater, QB, Louisville. Jacksonville needs a QB and Bridgewater fits what they need. It would be a good building block to start their franchise.
Cleveland #4: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. Cleveland needs a QB and their is a rumor that they have a mancrush on Manziel. If he's there, I could imagine them taking him.
Oakland #5: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. While they need a QB, a player of this caliber could make them think about getting a QB elsewhere.
Atlanta #6: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn. Atlanta needs a LT and Robinson gives value and fills that need.
Tampa Bay #7: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson. Tampa could use a WR to complement Vincent Jackson and Watkins does that just perfectly.
Minnesota #8: Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA. Minnesota will need a pass rushing presence to replace Jared Allen and Barr can do that.
Buffalo #9: Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo. They get a very good local kid to bolster their LB core.
Detroit #10: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M. This gives Detroit their form of the Brandon Marshall-Alshon Jeffery combo. And Detroit needs a #2 WR.
Tennessee #11: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan. Tennessee could use another OT and Lewan could start at RT, then move to LT when needed.
New York Giants #12: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State. New York needs a CB and Gilbert has good size and of course good coverage skills.
St. Louis #13: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama. St. Louis needs another safety and Clinton-Dix is available, so they take him.
Chicago #14: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State. Chicago needs another DT and Jernigan does that very well.
Pittsburgh #15: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota. Pittsburgh could use another D-Linemen and Hageman is very good.
Baltimore #16: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC. This gives Baltimore a very good TE. He can block decently, so that's an added bonus. He gets compared to Vernon Davis. If we even could get a watered-down Vernon Davis, I'd be happy. He's only 6'4", but he has all the other traits to get open.
Dallas #17: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame. Dallas needs a DT, and Nix is the best one available at this moment.
Miami #19: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama. Miami is desparate for OL help, and anybody could probably be an upgrade right now. But they still have the great Bryant McKinnie.
Arizona #20: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State. Arizona could use a QB and Carr could probably ride the bench one year. and then start the next.
Green Bay #21: Stephon Tuitt, DL, Notre Dame. Green Bay needs a D-Linemen and Tuitt is a monster and could really help.
Philadelphia #22: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville. Phili needs a S and Pryor is definitely the best one available now.
Kansas City #23: Odell Beckham Jr, WR, LSU. K.C. could use a smaller and faster WR to complement Dwayne Bowe.
Cincinnati #24: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State. Cinci could use another CB and Dennard is a good value here at #24.
San Diego #25: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU. San Diego needsa CB and Verrett is the best one available.
Cleveland (via Indianapolis) #26: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State. This gives Manziel his Mike Evans.
New Orleans #27: C.J. Mosely, LB, Alabama. This gives NO their do-it-all ILB.
Carolina #28: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State. This is my first mock draft in a while where they don't get Kelvin Benjamin. Either way, they still get a very good WR.
New England #29: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. NE needs another TE and Amaro is just a great value here at 29. This is pretty close to a no-brainer.
San Francisco #30: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida. San Fran needs a CB. Roberson is one of the best ones available.
Denver #31: Kony Ealy, DE, MIssouri. This is also a great value. Ealy would be a very good 4-3 DE for Denver.
Seattle #32: Zach Martin, OL, Notre Dame. This is a very good pick. Martin played OT in college, but he will play OG in the NFL. He is a very good value here.
Lastly of course #16 and 17 and 31 and 32 aren't decided. I assume everything would stay the same if they were flip flopped. Dallas doesn't want Eric Ebron and Seattle would probably still stick with Martin over Kony Ealy.
