Three Round NFL Mock Draft

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

First, final and only mock. Two months in the making. Enjoy

1 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/texans_50t.png Jadeveon Clowney
DE
South Carolina
Best player in the draft by far, maybe the best player of the last 10 years.
2 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/rams_50t.png Khalil Mack OLB
Buffalo
If not for Clowney, Mack might be the top pick in this draft. He has Von Miller type abilities. STL can't pass on such a talent and just makes an already incredible defense that much better.
3 Sammy Watkins
WR
Clemson
JAX needs to start getting playmakers for whomever is the QB this season. Watkins is a top tier talent in this draft.
4 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/browns_50t.png Greg Robinson
OT
Auburn
Pure BPA here, and immediate starter at RT for The Factory of Sadness.
5 Mike Evans
WR
Texas A&M
Size/Speed specimen. Oakland wants to build a chain moving offense. Evans is a great fit for that.
6 Aaron Donald
DT
Pittsburgh
Donald has been flying up draft boards. ATL is in need of help on the front lines, getting the nation's leader in TFL does just that.
7 Taylor Lewan
OT
Michigan
Even with the signing of Anthony Collins, putting Lewan on the right side would clear major holes for Doug Martin.
8 Johnny Manziel
QB
Texas A&M
The most talented QB in this draft.
9 Jake Matthews
OT
Texas A&M Matthews is BPA here and helps the struggling right side of the Bills O-Line
10 Ha'Sean "HaHa" Clinton-Dix
S
Alabama
Detroit is a few good draft picks away from being a very dangerous team. Their front 7 is as good as you will find in the NFL and they have a promising group of young CB's. Pairing Dix with Ihedgibo will do wonders for the Lions.
11 Justin Gilbert
CB
Oklahoma St.
Gilbert should be considered the best CB in this draft. He has the size and playmaking ability you want from a #1 CB. The Titans lost stud CB Verner to Free Agency.
12 Darqueze Dannard
CB
Michigan St.
NYG just misses out on the best CB in this draft, but still gets a quality CB to pair with Amukamura.
13 Zach Martin
OT
Notre Dame
STL needs to keep Bradford on his feet if they want him to be their franchise QB. Martin can play anywhere for them.
14 Calvin Pryor
S
Louisville
Pryor fits the Bears mold. He would provide a presence in the back end for Chicago.
15 http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/user_photos/1243691/0b1878033a122c49c4a18466f784d673_square_medium.jpg Kyle Fuller
CB
Virginia Tech
Fuller is a perfect fit for a zone defense like Pittsburgh's. Could be an eventual replacement for Ike T Swag Swaggin Swagger McSwagster.
16 Ra'Shede Hageman
DT
Minnesota
A historically bad defense that lost players along the DL. Hageman can step in right away.
17 Anthony Barr
OLB
UCLA
Pure, unadulterated Best. Player. Available pick here. You find a way to use Barr even with Suggs and Dumervil already here.
18 Brandon Cooks
WR
Oregon St.
The Jets needs playmakers, and in a hurry. Cooks would only make an offense with the likes of Geno Smith and Chris Johnson that much faster.
19 Xavier Su'a-Filo
OG
UCLA
The monster Guard played about as well as you could ask for last season for the Bruins. Would help a struggling O-Line that lost 2 good players.
20 Blake Bortles
QB
UCF
Perfect situation for Bortles to learn under Carson Palmer for a season, and then Arizona can move on from Palmer after this year where they can save $10M in cap room by cutting him. The Cardinals do not have alot of needs...
21 Eric Ebron
TE

North Carolina

Ebron is better than most people give him credit for, and he would flourish with a quality QB like Rodgers.
22 Louis Nix
DT
Notre Dame
Philly needs to beef up their interior D-Line. Nix would free up alot of room for their great group of LB to wreak havoc.
23 Odell Beckham Jr.
WR
LSU
The defense is set for a long time. If they can surround Smith with a few more playmakers, that team can go far. Beckham becomes a nice compliment to Bowe.
24 Bradley Roby
CB
Ohio St.
Another team without many needs just adds to an already strong defense.
25 Kelvin Benjamin WR
Florida St.
The Chargers have always loved height at WR. Pairing Benjmain with the up and coming Keenan Allen would be beneficial to an already great Phillip Rivers. 
26 Derrick Carr

QB

Fresno St.
They have to do something at QB...
27 Marcus Martin
OC
USC
Flying up draft boards because of his athleticism. Would be an instant start for the fast moving Saints.
28 Marqise Lee
WR
USC
Carolina lost pretty much everything at WR. Lee would step in right away to help Newton.
29 Tim Jernigan
DT
Florida St.
Belichick loves D-Lineman that can move around. Jernigan would fill alot of needs for NE.
30 http://www.nfldraft101.com/images/sfo.gif Jason Verrett
CB
TCU
SF cut ties with Carlos Rogers, and now has a hole at CB. Verrett could step in next to Culliver.
31 C.J. Mosley
ILB
Alabama
Denver lost Woodyard after last season and now has a void at ILB. Mosley is the best ILB prospect in this class and would be a nice piece to that defense.
32 Morgan Moses
OT
Virginia
Seattle took a beating last year on the O-Line and lost a few players to free agency as well. Moses could step in at RT from day 1.



Round 2
33 Teddy Bridgewater
QB
Louisville
The rich get richer. Bridgewater's stock seems to keep falling after a poor pro-day. Houston taking him in the 2nd round would be a great day for them.
34 Ryan Shazier
LB
Ohio St.
Wasington finally gets to pick and takes the rising Shazier to plug in at ILB.
35 Davante Adams
WR
Fresno St.
Not only is Adams a great talent, but pairing him with his college QB would be beneficial to the growth of their offense.
36 Kony Ealy
DE
Missouri
Oakland has already brought in the likes of Lamar Woodley and Justin Tuck, but adding Ealy to that mix would cause some damage for opposing QB's.
37 JuWan James
OT
Tennessee
ATL needs to get better in the trenches, and James would be in the mix for starting RT.
38 Jordan Matthews
WR
Vanderbilt
Matthews would pair nicely with Vincent Jackson.
39 Zach Mettenberger
QB
LSU
Got to start somewhere.
40 Dee Ford
DE
Auburn
After losing Jared Allen to Chicago, Ford could fill a huge void at LDE.
41 http://s3.timetoast.com/public/uploads/photos/2085547/buffalo_bills_logo-9050_tiny.gif?1326309146 Jimmie Ward S
Northern Illinois
Can play either spot for Buffalo. Would help ease the loss of stud FS, Jarius Byrd to New Orleans.
42 Stephon Tuitt
DT
Notre Dame
The Titans could stand to upgrade the interior of their D-Line. Tuitt is a steal at this point.
43 Troy Niklas
TE
Notre Dame
NYG loves a TE that can block, and Niklas is the best in the draft at just that.
44 Gabe Jackson
OG
Miss. St.
STL continues to load up on OL to make sure Bradford can stay on his feet.
45 Kyle Van Noy
OLB
BYU
The Lions want to add an OLB that can rush the passer, and Van Noy is just that for them.
46 http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/user_photos/1243691/0b1878033a122c49c4a18466f784d673_square_medium.jpg Cody Lattimer
WR
Indiana
Pittsburgh needs depth behind Antonio Brown. Wheaton will be relied upon heavily this year but Lattimer can add another dimension.
47 Antonio Richardson
OT
Tennessee
Dallas is not happy with Doug Free at RT, and Richardson would be in competition there.
48 Jace Amaro
TE
Texas Tech
Amaro is a pass catching nightmare down the seams and would pair nicely with Pitta.
49 Austin Seferian-Jenkins
TE
Washington
Need to keep surrounding whichever QB they start with weapons. ASJ would be a nice addition.
50 Jarvis Landry
WR
LSU
Hartline and Wallace could stand to have another person taking the pressure of them.
51 Joe Bitonio
OG
Nevada
Bitonio is a quality player who could play Tackle or Guard. The Bears would love for him to fill in at LG.
52 Scott Crichton
DE
Oregon St.
Darnell Dockett is winding down his career, and Crichton could play anywhere for ARI.
53 Phillip Gaines
CB
Rice
Gaines is quickly moving up the ranks of this draft and Green Bay could use a playmaker like him in their secondary.
54 Donte Moncrief
WR
Ole Miss
The loss of Desean Jackson leaves a huge hole in big plays for Philly. Moncrief would be a nice addition to Maclin and Cooper.
55 Dominique Easley
DE
Florida
Cinci just continues to pile up defensive talent.
56 Terrence West
RB
Towson
The first RB taken off the board, West is a jack of all trades. Younger brother Jim is happy to get someone who can eventually take over for Frank Gore.
57 DaQuan Jones
DT
Penn State
San Diego lost Cam Thomas to Pittsburgh. Jones can step in at NT.
58 Allen Robinson
WR
Penn State
A size/speed monster that fits in well with Brees.
59 Deone Bucannon
S
Washington St.
Heavy hitter, can be a presence in that defense for Indy.
60 Lamarcus Joyner
CB
Florida St.
A fiery nickel CB who fits the Panthers' style of defense.
61 Jeremiah Attaochu
OLB
Georgia Tech
BPA here, would help with the loss of Aldon Smith. Quality player.
62 David Yankey
OG
Standford
Mankins and Connelly both getting older, Yankey would benefit to learn behind 2 of the best before taking over.
63 Marcus Roberson
CB
Florida
Good depth for their defense.
64 Ego Ferguson
DT
LSU.
For a team that loves to pressure the QB from all areas on the D-Line, Ferguson can do just that after losing Red Bryant to free agency.




Round 3
65 Carlos Hyde
RB
Ohio St.
Lost Ben Tate to the Browns and with a young QB most likely coming in, would help to have someone to spill Foster.
66 Cyrus Kouandjio
OT
Alabama
Knee issues drop a once thought to be 1st round pick. Washington hopes to use him at RT to protect RG3.
67 Jimmy Garoppolo
QB
Eastern Illinois
Oakland finally putting together a very, very good draft if they can add Garoppolo here and let him learn behind Schaub for a season.
68 Will Sutton
DT
Arizona St.
ATL double dips at DT to help get pressure on a division flooded with good QB's.
69 C.J. Fiedorowicz
TE
Iowa
The Bucs have the defense they want, now they load up on offense in this draft to help keep up with the other power houses in their division.
70 Tre Mason
RB
Auburn
Toby Gerhart is the #1 RB for JAX right now....
71 Cyril Richardson
OG
Baylor
In the AFC North, you build your team from the inside, out.
72 Chris Borland
LB
Wisconsin
Tough, rugged player that would fit in nicely next to Chad Greenway.
73 Brandon Coleman
WR
Rutgers
Tall target to pair with Woods, Williams and Johnson.
74 Caraun Reid
DT
Princeton
NYG has lost alot of beef on the DL over the years. Reid is flying up draft boards and is a versatile player.
75 Martavious Bryant
WR
Clemson
Another weapon for Bradford.
76 Pierre Desir
CB
Lindenwood
Detroit have a young group of CB's they love, so Desir will only add more competition starting roles and depth.
77 Weston Richburg
OC
Colorado St.
Competition for Kilgore.
78 Bishop Sankey
RB
Washington
Murray could use depth behind him, especially with all his injury concerns.
79 Billy Turner
OT
North Dakota St.
Turner from the D1AA power house, NDSU, would immediately compete for the open RT spot.
80 Shayne Skov
LB
Stanford
Is the type of player/leader Rex Ryan admires. Would fit in nicely next to Harris.
81 Jaylen Watkins
CB
Florida
Good depth behind Grimes and Finnegan.
82 Ka'Deem Carey
RB
Arizona
Change of pace back for Forte.
83 Stanley Jean-Baptiste
CB
Nebraska
Finally dip on defense, taking one of the biggest CB's in this draft.
84 Carl Bradford
OLB
Arizona St.
John Abraham won't be around too much longer, and Bradford is a stud on the edge.
85 Bryan Stork
OC
Florida St.
JC Tretter should be tested by someone before being given the starting job.
86 Kareem Martin
DE
North Carolina
Big body DE who is a great rotational player. Can do alot of things in Philly's 3-4 defense.
87 Terrence Brooks
FS
Florida St.
If Bronson or Abdullah don't work out, Brooks would be a good option at FS next to the All-Pro Berry
88 Tom Savage
RB
Pittsburgh
Dalton is going into the final year of his contract and is demanding big money. Will Mike Brown give it to him?
89 Marcus Smith
DE
Louisville
The leading pass rusher on the team right now had 5.5 sacks last season.
90 Travis Swanon
OC
Arkansas
The current 2 players fighting for that spot have 0 combined starts last season.
91 http://store.nike.com/nikestore/merchandising/mobile/storefronts/us/landing/football/img/logos/new_orleans_saints.png Jack Mewhort
OT
Ohio St.
The ends protecting Drew Brees are still somewhat of a question mark.
92 De'Anthony Thomas
ATH
Oregon
Explosive player, fits their offense.
93 Jared Abberderis
WR
Wisconsin
If you're a white WR, you play for New England. Plus, they could use him.
94 Dri Archer
WR
Kansas St.
The 49ers are looking for a speed threat behind Boldin and Crabtree. Archer is one of the most dynamic players in this draft.
95 Dakota Dozier
OG
Furman
The LG's for Denver right now started zero games last year, including Ramon Harewood.

96

Jeremy Hill
RB
LSU

Gerhart left for JAX, and Hill is another big body RB who could spill AP.

97

Justin Ellis
DT      
Louisiana Tech

Big Body DT who is used to being a rotational player and would add good depth for Pitt's front line.

98

Bruce Ellington
WR      
South Carolina

Green Bay has seen both Greg Jennings and James Jones leave the last few years.

99

Keith McGill
CB      
Utah               

Tall, rangy CB who has met with Baltimore already. Would immediately compete for the #3 CB job.

100

Taylor Hart
DE      
Oregon

Great fit for a 3-4 DE spot. Tough, has a non-stop motor.
