1. Kansas City Chiefs– Sharrif Floyd, DT Florida : Andy Reid loves to build his team from the inside out, so he will go with the Floyd who has been described as the best player in the draft.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars – Dee Milliner, CB Alabama : The Jaguars are in serious need for a CB. Milliner ran a 4.37 at the combine, and has the makeup to be a shutdown corner.
3. Oakland Raiders – Luke Joeckel, OT Texas A&M : The Raiders love Floyd, but if he is not available, they have no choice but to fix their offensive line.
4. Philadelphia Eagles – Eric Fisher, OT Central Michigan : Fisher is having a great offseason and his stock is through the roof. It would be foolish for the Eagles to pass on Fisher.
5. Detroit Lions – Dion Jordan, DE/OLB Oregon : The Lions lost DE Cliff Avril to the Seahawks, and will need someone to replace him. Jordan is a freak, who still has a ton of room for improvement.
6. Cleveland Browns – Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB BYU : Ansah is raw, but he will be a playmaker from day one, and the Browns need him desperately.
7. Arizona Cardinals – Tavon Austin, WR WVU : This is a reach, but he will take pressure off of Larry Fitzgerald, and Cardinals are believed not to be in the running for a QB in round 1.
8. Buffalo Bills – Geno Smith, QB WVU : Smith had a solid pro day, and the Bills currently do not have a starting caliber QB on their roster.
9. New York Jets – Star Lotulelei, DL Utah : Lotulelei had a great pro day, and Rex knows how important it is to have a good front 7.
10. Tennessee Titans – Chance Warmack, OG Alabama : The Titans have been focused on improving their offensive line during the offseason. The addition of Warmack will be the finishing touch.
11. San Diego Chargers – Lane Johnson, OT Oklahoma : Rivers struggled last season because of the offensive line. Lane Johnson will be a star in the league, and protect Rivers’ blindside for years.
12. Miami Dolphins – Cordarrelle Patterson, WR Tennessee. : Miami spent the offseason bolstering their defense, so what better way to compliment the speedy WR Mike Wallace than another fast WR.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Xavier Rhodes, CB Florida St. : Even if the Bucs trade for CB Darrelle Revis, they still need to find a quality CB to start opposite of him.
14. Carolina Panthers – Sheldon Richardson, DT Missouri: The Panthers need to stop the bleeding on defense, and Richardson is the second best DT left on the board.
15. New Orleans Saints – Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB : The Saints have tried to land a OLB in FA, but failed to do so. Enter the raw Mingo, who will make a huge impact.
16. St. Louis Rams – Jonathan Cooper, OG North Carolina : Cooper is a steal this late in the round, and he can also play center if need be.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers – Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia: A poor pro day, medical concerns, and the reputation of not being a work out warrior, could cause Jones to drop all the way into the Steelers lap.
18. Dallas Cowboys – Kenny Vaccaro, S Texas : The Cowboys like Vaccaro a lot because of his ability to cover WRs in the slot, and his playmaking ability.
19. New York Giants – Bjoern Werner, OLB Florida State : Werner did not have a great combine, and had an average pro day. Gmen love to have a ton of defensive linemen, and would look forward to grooming Werner in hopes that he becomes the next Justin Tuck.
20. Chicago Bears – D.J Fluker, OT Alabama : The Bears need to keep Cutler upright, and the only way to do that, is to draft some hefty beefcakes upfront.
21. Cincinnati Bengals – Damontre Moore, DE/OLB Texas A&M – Moore could be a bust, but he will be an upgrade over Manny Lawson on the outside.
22. St. Louis Rams – Keenan Allen, WR California : The Rams need playmakers in order for Sam Bradford to be successful. Keenan Allen is tall (6’ 2”), talented, and will be the playmaker for Bradford on the outside, that he so desperately needs.
23. Minnesota Vikings – Desmond Trufant, CB Washington : With Aaron Rodgers in your division, you better have some good DBs on your team.
24. Indianapolis Colts – Margus Hunt, DE Southern Methodist University : Hunt had a great combine, and has the makings of the next J.J Watt.
25. Minnesota Vikings – D. J Hayden, CB Houston : Hayden is rising up draft boards because of a blazing 40 yard dash time of 4.33, and being in the pass happy NFC North; a team can never have enough good DB’s.
26. Green Bay Packers – Arthur Brown, LB Kansas State : According to some scouts, Brown is one of the best LB’s in this years’ draft . The Packers want to pressure QBs more, and Brown will be able to do that.
27. Houston Texans – Alec Ogletree, ILB Georgia : The Texans would like to get a compliment WR opposite of Andre Johnson, but with the top 3 off the board, the Texans will just have to be satisfied with picking the talented, but troubled Ogletree.
28. Denver Broncos – Tank Carradine, DE Florida State : Carradine has enough talent to warrant a top 10 selection, but a blown knee makes him a question mark. The loss of Elvis Dumervil will hurt the Broncos, but Carradine will make them forget about Elvis easily.
29. New England Patriots – Johnthan Banks, CB Mississippi State: Banks stock is dropping because of a poor 40 time. He is a football player none-the-less, and the Patriots need to upgrade their secondary dramatically.
30. Atlanta Falcons –Datone Jones, DE UCLA : The release of DE John Abraham has created a huge void on the defensive line for Atlanta. Jones is a playmaker with great hand movement, and will give the Falcons a legitimate pass rusher off the edge.
31. San Francisco 49ers – Eric Reid, S LSU : Reid will be able to take over the vacant spot at Free Safety, with Dashon Goldson leaving via free agency. Reid has good range, is solid in run support, and will be a great pick for the 9ers at this spot.
32. Baltimore Ravens – Jonathan Cyprien, S Florida International : Safety Ed Reed will be missed, but drafting Cyprien will help ease that pain.
