1. Houston – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville. New coach, new quarterback, new era in H-town.                         

2. St. Louis (from Washington) – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M. Rams need to protect the franchise and keep Sam Bradford upright.                       

3. Jacksonville – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M. Team says no to Tebowmania but yes to Johnny Football!                  

4. Cleveland – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA. A reunion with new coach Mike Pettine and quarterback Mark Sanchez allows Browns to select pass-rush help.                             

5. Oakland – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina. A match made in heaven between a perceived renegade and the NFL’s bady boy franchise.

6. Atlanta – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan. The Falcons offensive line was shoddy this past season, selecting Lewan brings some stability.

7. Tampa Bay – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson. Team sorely lacks a playmaker opposite of Vincent Jackson.                                 

8. Minnesota – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State. Team adds another building block to strengthen the secondary.                                

9. Buffalo – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn. Lengthy left tackle allows Cordy Glenn to slide over to the right side or kick inside and deepen front line.                                  

10. Detroit – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M. Remarkably, its been seven years since the Lions chose a wide out in the first round. Evans and Megatron form twin towers.                                  

11. Tennessee – OT Cyrus Kouandijio, Alabama. With many needs on roster, team should build from inside out.                       

12. NY Giants – ILB CJ Mosely, Alabama. After several years of patching together the inside linebacker position, G-Men finally find new defensive leader.                                  

13. St. Louis – DT Ra’shede Hageman, Minnesota. Plugs the biggest hole on the defensive side of the ball and creates more one-on-ones for ends.

14. Chicago – FS Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, Alabama. Defense was burned deep often this past year, Dix helps shore up that big play vulnerability.

15. Pittsburgh – DT Louis Nix, Notre Dame. The Steelers never filled the void created by Casey Hampton, this pick will.                        

16. Dallas – DT Tim Jernigan, Florida State. Beef in the middle and youth on defense, this pick helps both areas.                       

17. Baltimore – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina. It was a merry-go-round all season long at the tight end spot, Ebron fixes that and adds another red zone threat to the offense.           

18. NY Jets – OLB Kony Ealy, Missouri. A bonafide pass-rusher could elevate the Jets defense to another level.                           

19. Miami – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State. Would become an instant starter and solidify an average unit.                               

20. Arizona – LB Khalil Mack, Buffalo. Can begin on strong side an eventually take over for John Abraham on the weakside.                            

21. Green Bay – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame. Paired with BJ Raji, creates formidable duo on the bookends of their 3-4 defense.                             

22. Philadelphia – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State. The Eagles finished in the bottom half of the league in sacks, Shazier can get after the quarterback.                        

23. Kansas City – FS Calvin Pryor, Louisville. All needs reside on the defensive side of the ball. The combination of Eric Berry and Pryor would make for a dynamic safety duo..

24. Cincinnati – CB Louchiez Purifoy, Florida. The cast of characters the Bengals employ at corner are not of quality caliber and lack talent.

25. San Diego – OLB Dee Ford, Auburn. Proved more than capable of playing linebacker during his week in Mobile.                             

26. Cleveland (from Indianapolis) – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State. New head coach Mike Pettine subscribes to the Rex Ryan philosophy of cornerbacks.                        

27. New Orleans – OLB Kyle Van Noy, BYU. Pieces still needed as team transitions to 3-4 defensive personnel, Van Noy fits perfectly.                        

28. Carolina – OT Zack Martin, Notre Dame. Could fit on either outside tackle spot or inside guard positions.                              

29. New England – DL Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh. A chess piece for Bill Belichick to move around on the defensive line to help create mismatches.                                  

30. San Francisco – DE Trent Murphy, Stanford. Already knows the defense and the coaches, equals smooth transition and instant impact.

31. Seattle – WR Marqise Lee, USC. If the shoe fits, then wear it.                                                                      

32. Denver – SS Deone Buchannon, Washington. Improve the weakest link.

33. Houston – OT Jack Mewhort, Ohio State. Current starter Derek Newton is inadequate at right tackle.

34. Washington – WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State. Oozes with upside, Redskins have least amount of playmakers in their division.

35. Cleveland – OG Cyril Richardson, Baylor. Showed flaws at Senior Bowl but should prevail as first guard off the board.

36. Oakland – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee. Adds flexibility on the exterior of the offensive line, can start at left or right.

37. Atlanta – DE Scott Chrichton, Oregon State. The Falcons used Osi Umenyiora as a part-time player during the second half of the season.

38. Tampa Bay – TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington. More reinforcements to help the strating quarterback to be determined succeed.

39. Jacksonville – CB Jason Verrett, TCU. Would be talked about as a first round pick if he were an inch taller. 

40. Minnesota – QB Blake Bortles, UCF. Added to the equation in the Vikings constant search for a starting quarterback.
