Mock Draft 6.0

I'll put Dallas at 16 for kicks and giggles. I'll throw in a couple of trades.

Houston #1: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. There are always QB's later on. They could add an amazing complement to J.J. Watt here at #1. You can only double block so many people.

Cleveland (from Washington via St. Louis) #2: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. Cleveland trades up to get their QB that they desperately need.

Jacksonville #3: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville. Jacksonville needs a QB, and Bridgewater could fit into what they need. Jacksonville better hit on this or it could mean the job of David Caldwell.

St. Louis (via Cleveland) #4: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn. St. Louis gets the guy they would have taken at #2 anyway. Robinson has a higher ceiling then Matthews in my opinion. He is an absolute mauler and fits in St. Louis.

Oakland #5: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida. Oakland is also in need of a QB and Bortles is a pretty good value at #5.

Atlanta #6: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M. This is a steal for Atlanta and Matt Ryan gets some great protection. Dream pick for Atlanta here.

Tampa Bay #7: Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo. Tampa needs an OLB and Mack fills that role perfectly. He could work as a Von Miller type player.

Minnesota #8: Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA. Minnesota needs a pass rusher and that is Barr's strength.

Buffalo #9: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC. I'm sure it seems odd that they would pick Ebron over Sammy Watkins. They already have some decent receivers and Ebron would be very good for E.J. Manuel.

Detroit #10: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State. Detroit needs a CB really badly. Gilbert could really help everybody on that whole defense. Another CB would make Detroit a lot better.

Tennessee #11: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan. Tennessee needs an OT and Lewan has a monster ceiling. He is 6'7" and has great potential. He could become very good.

New York Giants #12: C.J. Mosely, LB, Alabama. This gives the Giants a good LB who can do everything.

St. Louis #13: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson. This is a dream scenario for the Rams. A very good #1 WR for Sam Bradford.

Chicago #14: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State. The Bears need a DT and Jernigan is the best one in this draft.

Pittsburgh #15: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M. This pick probably is actually pretty good. This could be Ben's big target to complement Antonio Brown.

Dallas #16: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama. Dallas gets a very good S and gets decent value while at it. Probably means Jerry Jones won't make it.

San Francisco (via Baltimore) #17: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota. I decided SF would be a good candidate to trade up, but the question would be for whom. I debated between a CB or Hageman. They do need both, but I decided on a NT. Hageman would be a good NT for them.

New York Jets #18: Marqise Lee, WR, USC. The Jets need a WR for Geno Smith. Lee would be a great pickup if he returns to his 2012 form.

Miami #19: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama. Miami is desperate for any kind of O-Line help. Kouandjio has the potential to be very good.

Arizona #20: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State. This is a pretty good value for Arizona and it fills a need.

Green Bay #21: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame. Nix is a monster and would be a great fit to be in the middle of Green Bay's defense.

Philadelphia #22: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville. Phili needs a S and they take the best one available here at 22.

Kansas City #23: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU. The Chiefs could use a smaller faster WR to complement Dwayne Bowe.

Cincinnati #24: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State. Cinci needs a CB and Dennard is the best one available.

San Diego #25: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State. San Diego also needs a CB and Roby has the potential to be very good. A good CB and San Diego is an even bigger threat.

Cleveland (via Indianapolis) #26: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State. This gives Cleveland a good all-around WR to complement Josh Gordon and gives Manziel another good target.

New Orleans #27: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee. New Orleans needs another OT and Richardson could develop into a very good one. He is monstrous 6'6" 327 pounds. CBS sports compares him to Erik Williams. Yeah that Erik Williams. If he is that good, he's worth much more then the #27 overall pick.

Carolina #28: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State. Carolina could use a monster target for Cam Newton and Benjamin is big and fast and would work great for that.

New England #29: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. NE could use another TE and Amaro is the best one here right now. He is a great value and fills a big need.

Baltimore (via San Francisco) #30: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt. Matthews is a very good WR who has great route running, hands, and is 6'3". Great pick here at 30.

Denver #31: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU. Denver could use another CB because Champ Bailey is old, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could leave in FA, and Chris Harris will be coming off an ACL tear.

Seattle #32: Zach Martin, OL, Notre Dame. Seattle needs an OG and that is what Martin will have to play in the NFL. Kony Ealy could be the pick if Michael Bennett leaves.

First, we'd probably get their pick #24 in the 2nd round with the trade. That's pretty close in terms of points.
