1: Houston Texans: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
No Clowney, they got Mercilus and Reed. The chance for a QB is now assuming they don't go for Big Ben in a trade with Pittsburgh(which s a very real possibility)
2: St. Louis Rams: Jadevon Clowney, DE/OLB, South Carolina
Many have an OT or a WR here if not a trade. However, I also think it's possible for the Rams to decide that Clowney can't be passed up. They can ease him in behind Quinn/Long and then trade Long and his contract for a better and cheaper player either sooner or later, up to them. Imagine a 3rd-down line of Robert Quinn, Jadevon Clowney, Michael Brockers, and Chris Long. Or a pairing of Robert Quinn and Jadevon Clowney; they're immediatey the best bookends in the league.
3: Jacksonville Jaguars: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
Some like Bortles ahead of Brigewater. Since Clowney is gone this is an easy choice.
4: Cleveland Browns: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texans A&M
There are some reports, possibly smokescreen, that Cleveland would trade up for Manziel. I don't think they'll need to.
5: Oakland Raiders: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
They could go OT here but they need a WR more and they don't see a significant drop-off.
6: Atlanta Falcons: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Many have Jake Matthews ahead of Robinson. I think Robinson has a higher upside on the blindside than Matthews, who I think could be a bit more of a RT than a LT. Tough call, but right now I'm guessing Robinson's upside pushes him ahead.
7: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kony Ealy, DE, Mizzou
Claiborne is only so good and needs help on the other side.
8: Minnesota Vikings: Khalil Mack, Buffalo, OLB
They almost go for Derek Carr here but are haunted by memories of Christian Ponder.
9: Buffalo Bills: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
I think he's a great bet at a great RT. Buffalo needs to figure out RT.
10: Detroit Lions: Marquise Lee, WR, USC
I see Lee as a more reliable compliment to Calvin than Mike Evans. They don't need more pass-rush
11: Tennessee Titans: Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA
They've been needing some help in their front-7 for awhile. They work their way there.
12: NY Giants: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
He seems less injury-prone and arrest-prone than his cousin and maybe even a bit more talented.
13: St. Louis Rams: Cyrus Kouandijo, OT, Alabama
Going for Clowney doesn't look so dumb now, now does it? I don't think Cyrus is going to be as good as Robinson but hey, they got Clowney and still got better at OT. They could also go for Cyrus' teammate Clinton-Dix at Safety.
14: Chicago Bears: Ra’shede Hageman, DE/DT, Minnesota
I have Hageman as my top 34DE. But isn't Chicago a 43? Well, that may change and at worst they could move Hageman to 43LDE to make a fearsome bookend duo with Peppers.
15: Pittsburgh Steelers: Hasean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
They began addressing the depth at Safety last year with Shamarko Thomas. Now they add even more talent behind the aged Polamalu/Clark duo.
16: Baltimore Ravens: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC
A great compliment to Pitta. Now they don't need to worry about Dixon's lack of development. Flacco was missing his between-the-numbers targets last season.
17: Dallas Cowboys: CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama
Their lack of talent behind Sean Lee was exposed last year. Also, Sean Lee can't stay healthy. Mosley isn't a 43MLB like Lee but he can at least ass some talent to OLB which is in dire need of help.
18: New York Jets: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
Ebron is gone and the Jets need a TE. Also, they don't want Miami to get him.
19: Miami Dolphins: Zach Martin, OL, Notre Dame
Maybe he can play LT, maybe LG, maybe RG. He adds some stability. They don't go for Lewan because he reminds them a bit too much of their former LG.
20: Arizona Cardinals: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahome State
Peterson and Mathieu meet their new friend. The Arizona backfield is looking better, now. Dee Ford is also a possibility here. Or maybe they send this pick to Pittsburgh to reunite Big Ben with Bruce Arians.
21: Green Bay Packers: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Pryor has fallen and the top-2 TEs are gone. Why not?
22: Philadelphia Eagles: Mike Evans, WR
Chip Kelly is laughing.
23: Kansas City Chiefs: Allen Robinson, WR
Dwayne Bowe gets a compliment and Alex Smith gets another weapon.
24: Cincinnati Bengals: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
There are some questions about scheme-fit but Verett is immensely talented and will have some good mentors in that back end.
25: San Diego Chargers: Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn
Melvin Ingram gets some help. Pagano is going to love this kid.
26: Cleveland Browns: Aaron Donald, RDT, Pittsburgh
Donald and Phil Taylor side by side? Scary thought.
27: New Orleans Saints: Taylor Lewan, LT, Michigan
His fall needs to end somewhere. The Saints take a chance on a guy who has been anything but a Saint.
28: Carolina Panthers: David Yankey, OG, Stanford
They had to convert a DT to an OG and while Wharton was a great find for them he's not getting younger. They could use help inside.
29: New England Patriots: Stephon Tuitt, DT/DE, Notre Dame
Louis Nix III or Stephon Tuitt? I see Nix III as more of a 34DT/43LDT, and the Pats may need one if they can't work on Wilfork's contract. But they also got a decent performance out of Sealver Siliga. On the other hand, 34DE/43RDT was a disaster. Tommy Kelly got injured, is pricy, and is aged. Armond Armstead couldn't get on the field. Many have Nix higher than Tuitt but I think Tuitt may be a better fit and I'm not as sold on Nix as others are.
30: San Francisco 49ers: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
They need to think about the future after Justin Smith at DE. However, CB has been a weakness for them for too long.
31: Seattle Seahawks: Antonio Richardson, RT, Tennessee
An OG is a possibility here at OG. Max Unger definitely needs some help. However, RT wasn't exactly a strength of theirs.
32: Denver Broncos: Odell Beckham Jr.,WR, LSU
Although I would love to mock them S Jimmie Ward this makes too much sense. They may not be able to keep both Welker and Decker.
