1 Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney DE/OLB South Carolina

Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel will be given the polished gem, while O'Brien

will do the polishing on a Garoppolo, Carr, Savage, or Mettenberger with a later pick.
2 St. Louis Rams  (fr. Wash) Greg Robinson OT Auburn
3 Jacksonville Jaguars Khalil Mack DE/OLB Buffalo

The best way to counter division-foe Texans? Trump their new pass-rusher w/ one that

could be just as good; this team has been downright miserable at pass-rush, being last

in the league the past two seasons - Mack truly illustrates both need and value here.
4 Cleveland Browns Sammy Watkins WR Clemson

Here's believing that the Browns aren't totally enamored with the QB's commonly

thought of as the "top 3," and will go for that need at #26 or with a trade-up later on…

Watkins is a perfect value-selection and staying true to the board will yield dividends.
5 Oakland Raiders Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
6 Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M

The team values pass-rush, but if that market dries up (as it does in this mock), the team

will decide between OT's Lewan and Jake Matthews.  Matthews is a great, safe pick.
7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M
8 Minnesota Vikings C.J. Mosley LB Alabama

Might happen in a small trade-back, but I really like the player and the fit with Minn.
9 Buffalo Bills Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
10 **Trade-up**   Cowboys Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh

Here's a hunch that Jerry Jones is completely smitten with love for the top DT prospect,

Donald, and will make an aggressive move to go get him.  Detroit will begin the draft

w/ eight selections, to the 11 that Dallas has, and will obtain a 3rd (#78) for the move.

Plus, all this Manziel entertainment in Big D might cause Jerry to get aggressive just for

the sake of being flashy - Think: Jerry= little kid that just must have the attention.
11 Tennessee Titans Blake Bortles QB Central Florida
12 New York Giants Zach Martin OT/G Notre Dame

One of the safer picks in this draft, Martin is rated higher than last year's offensive

pick (OL Justin Pugh), which the Giants didn't hesitate on; very versatile, can start at

guard or tackle in year one and build a great tandem with Pugh to fortify the O-line.
13 St. Louis Rams Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
14 Chicago Bears Calvin Pryor FS Louisville
15 **Trade-up**   NY Jets Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU

The J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets have a whopping 12 selections in the draft; don't expect them

to sit by and watch the ones they love go off the draft board.  ODB Jr. is of great value

to this team, as they must get a #1 receiver.  The give up (2) 4th rounders, #104/#115
16 **Trade-back**   Lions Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State

Detroit gains a 3rd-rounder in moving back, yet still take the guy they liked most at #10.
17 Baltimore Ravens HaHa Clinton-Dix FS Alabama
18 **Trade-back**  Steelers Ryan Shazier LB Ohio State

While both CB and WR are thought of as top needs, both have depth for now and

this draft is deep in those areas.  The Steelers will slide down and take a guy they've 

visited with a ton… gain (2) 4th rounders… and look to fill the WR/CB combo needs

in rounds 2/3, particularly with the new ammunition they have to trade up if needed.
19 **Trade-up**   Raiders Derek Carr QB Fresno State

Here's to the idea that if you want Carr, you might want to hop in front of the Cards at

pick #20… Dolphins fall-back to #36 to address their OL needs and gain the Raiders 

3rd rounder (#67) and a future mid-rounder.  Smart moves by both organizations.
20 Arizona Cardinals Anthony Barr DE/OLB UCLA

Sticking with the "win right now" mentality, this team forgoes an early QB and takes a

spark-plug that will jump-start the pass-rush mentality Arians wishes to deploy.
21 Green Bay Packers Eric Ebron TE North Carolina

Ebron is of high value at this slot in the draft; it could even turn out that G.B. has

interest in moving up for him, part of the puzzle to putting this mock projection into

formation… with the LB prospects gone, this front office will go for highest value.
22 Philadelphia Eagles Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech

This is one of those picks where a trade won't be projected, but the Eagles may bump

up a small handful of picks (maybe to Ravens at 17) to secure a coveted defensive back.
23 Kansas City Chiefs Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State
24 Cincinnati Bengals Bradley Roby CB Ohio State
25 San Diego Chargers Jason Verrett CB TCU
26 Cleve. Browns (fr. Indy) Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville

Whether true or not, it will be said that Teddy was their #1 QB choice all along!
27 New Orleans Saints Marcus Martin C USC
28 Carolina Panthers Marqise Lee WR USC
29 New England Patriots Ra'Shede Hageman DT Minnesota
30 San Francisco 49ers Cody Latimer WR Indiana
31 **Trade-up**   Jaguars Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois

With the thought in mind that Garoppolo is the preferred QB, and that division foe 

Houston picks #33 and didn't take a QB at #1 overall, the Jags add first round frenzy to

the mix and move into the bottom of Rd. 1 to get "their" guy.  Denver takes advantage

of this enthusiasm by picking up one of Jacksonville's (two) 4th rounders, #105 overall.

It can be noted: The Jaguars begin the draft with 11 selections, so they have precisely

the needed trade ammunition to do these types of moves on day two of the draft, while

many of Denver's greatest needs (LB, DE, CB, or OG) can all be had at pick #39.
32 Seattle Seahawks Morgan Moses OT Virginia
