Round 1:

1. Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB

The Colts announced this pick is official.

2. Washington Redskins (From St. Louis) - Robert Griffin III, QB

This pick is also a lock.

3. Minnesota Vikings - Matt Kalil, OT

I think ultimately the Vikings will go with Kalil here.

4. Cleveland Browns - Trent Richardson, RB

If the Browns decide to stay with McCoy for one more year, they need to give him playmakers to work with. Drafting Trent Richardson would definitely take some pressure off McCoy.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Morris Claiborne, CB

If Claiborne is on the board I think he's the pick. The wonderlic score means nothing.

6. St. Louis Rams (From Washington) - Fletcher Cox, DT

Fletcher Cox's stock is flying right now. The Rams need a DT so they could consider taking him.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars - Justin Blackmon, WR

The Jags #1 priority this offseason is getting Gabbert some weapons. They do that here with Blackmon. If he's on the board, I think Jacksonville takes him.

8. Miami Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill, QB

The Dolphins need a QB. They weren't able to get their hands on any of the FA's or players available for trade. I think they'll take Tannehill here if he's still on the board.

9. Carolina Panthers - Stephon Gilmore, CB

His stock is skyrocketing right now. Before the season he was projecting as a top 20 pick so it's not a complete surprise that he's shooting back up the boards.

10. Buffalo Bills - Michael Floyd, WR

The Bills don't have any WR options besides Stevie Johnson. If Floyd is available I think they may take him.

11. Kansas City Chiefs - David DeCastro, G

The Chiefs need offensive line help. The Chiefs might have their choice of a few players at this pick.

12. Seattle Seahawks - Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB

The Seahawks need help rushing the passer. They could consider addressing that issue with this pick.

13. Arizona Cardinals - Riley Reiff, OT

Offensive tackle is one of their biggest needs. If Reiff makes it to them, I think he's the pick.

14. Dallas Cowboys - Mark Barron, S

The Cowboys might look to upgrade their secondary. Barron will probably be drafted in this range.

15. Philadelphia Eagles - Michael Brockers, DT

The Eagles may be looking to replenish the interior of their defensive line. Brockers could do that for them.

16. New York Jets - Luke Kuechly, LB

The Jets are always looking to reload with defenders even if that means they take someone at a position they don't need as much as other positions.

17. Cincinnati Bengals - Cordy Glenn, G/T

Guard is one of the Bengals' biggest needs since they need two of them. They should probably consider taking Cordy Glenn their first first round pick since he probably won't make it to their second one.

18. San Diego Chargers - Chandler Jones, DE/OLB

The Chargers need help rushing the passer.

19. Chicago Bears - Quinton Coples, DE

I think Coples might fall a bit. The Bears might consider taking him if he makes it to them though.

20. Tennessee Titans - Dre Kirkpatrick, CB

The Titans just lost Cortland Finnegan to the Rams in FA. Plus you can never have too many talented corners.

21. Cincinnati Bengals - Stephen Hill, WR

The Bengals just lost Jerome Simpson to FA. Other than AJ Green, they don't have any good receiving options. Since they have two first round picks, they can afford to take a player at a position of lesser need.

22. Cleveland Browns (From Atlanta) - Jonathan Martin, OT

The Browns need help at RT. Martin would pair nicely with Joe Thomas. The Browns also need help at WR, but they may like Martin more than Kendall Wright.

23. Detroit Lions - Dont'a Hightower, LB

The Lions always seem to surprise on draft day. They never take players based on their needs, instead they sit at their pick and take the BPA. They could do that again this year.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers - Amini Silatolu, G/T

I've had Dont'a Hightower here for months. But in this mock, he's not available. The Steelers need help on the offensive line. Silatolu has flown into the first round.

25. Denver Broncos - Kendall Wright, WR

The Broncos need to provide Peyton with receiving options other than Thomas.

26. Houston Texans - Alshon Jeffery, WR

The Texans have literally no other good receiving options than Andre Johnson. This was apparent when Johnson was out for all those games. If they want to help Arian Foster by taking some pressure off the running game, they will need to get another WR.

27. New England Patriots (From New Orleans) - Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB

The Patriots need help on defense. They have to address the defensive side of the ball in this draft.

28. Green Bay Packers - Shea McClellin, DE/OLB

The Packers don't have too many needs but they could use a rush linebacker to play opposite of Clay Matthews.

29. Baltimore Ravens - Peter Konz, C

I think the Ravens will take Peter Konz if he's available.

30. San Francisco 49ers - Coby Fleener, TE

The 49ers don't have a lot of needs so they can afford to take a luxury pick like Fleener.

31. New England Patriots - Harrison Smith, S

The Patriots never do what anyone expects them to do. Most likely they'll trade this pick to a team looking to jump up to grab someone at the end of round 1 for a first rounder next year. If they stay here they could and should take a defensive player. Their defense was atrocious last year.

32. New York Giants - Doug Martin, RB

The Giants usually just stay at their pick and take the best player available to them. That might be Martin in this case.

Round 2:

33. St. Louis Rams - Rueban Randle, WR

If the Rams pass on a WR in round 1, they will need to take one in round 2. They have no one at the WR position.

34. Indianapolis Colts - Mike Adams, OT

The Colts need help in a few places. They could take Mike Adams if he's available here.

35. Minnesota Vikings - Jayron Hosley, CB

The Vikings need help in the secondary. They might take multiple upgrades for the secondary in this draft.

36. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Lamar Miller, RB

The Bucs have a few options with this pick. The Bucs need help at RB and they could select one of the 2nd round RBs here. Doug Martin would probably be the pick if he was available.

37. Cleveland Browns - Mohamed Sanu, WR

The Browns need to take a WR. They should probably consider one in round 1, but if they don't they might take someone here.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars - Josh Robinson, CB

The Jags could use help at CB. Some people think Stephon Gilmore is a possibility at #7 overall. Robinson seems like a Jags pick.

39. St. Louis Rams (From Washington) - Bobby Massie, OT

The Rams need help on the offensive line.

40. Carolina Panthers - Jerel Worthy, DT

The Panthers need help at the defensive tackle position.

41. Buffalo Bills - Mitchell Schwartz, OT

The Bills need an upgrade at left tackle. There aren't a ton of tackles in the draft so some may go earlier than expected.

42. Miami Dolphins - Nick Perry, DE/OLB

The Dolphins could use a pass rusher to play opposite of Cameron Wake.

43. Seattle Seahawks - Zach Brown, LB

The Seahawks could be looking for a linebacker in this draft. They may target Kuechly in round 1 since he's more of a traditional ILB than Brown is.

44. Kansas City Chiefs - Brandon Weeden, QB

I think Weeden could end up going to the Chiefs. It's starting to look like his age won't be much of a factor. This is a win now league, not a build for 5 years league anymore.

45. Dallas Cowboys - Devon Still, DT/DE

The Cowboys could be looking for a new DE. Still could go a lot higher than this, but there are a lot of these type of players in the draft, so one or more of them could fall a bit.

46. Philadelphia Eagles (From Arizona) - Janoris Jenkins, CB

The Eagles could be looking for depth at the CB position. Since Asante Samuel is gone, they don't have anything after Scrabble and DRC on the depth chart. The Eagles are one team that shouldn't care about his off the field problems.

47. New York Jets - Andre Branch, DE/OLB

Similar to the DT/DE tweeners, there are a lot of these DE/OLB type players in the draft so one or a few could fall in the draft. The Jets could be looking for some pass rush help.

48. New England Patriots (From Oakland) - Trumaine Johnson, CB/S

Another defensive upgrade for NE. Their secondary has some holes and could use some upgrades. Trumaine Johnson provides some flexibility in that he could probably play corner or safety. BB loves flexible players.

49. San Diego Chargers - Kevin Zeitler, G

The Chargers need depth on the offensive line. They had trouble staying healthy there last year.

50. Chicago Bears - Kelechi Osemele, G

The Bears could be looking for some offensive line depth. They need it in multiple places.

51. Philadelphia Eagles - Mychal Kendricks, LB

The Eagles need LB help. They may look at taking Kuechly in round 1, but if they pass on him, they should take a LB with one of their second round picks.

52. Tennessee Titans - Kendall Reyes, DT

The Titans need depth on the d-line. They could take a DT and a DE in this draft. As previously stated, since there are a lot of players at this position, some could fall further than expected.

53. Cincinnati Bengals - Alfonzo Dennard, CB

The Bengals need help at CB. Dennard's stock has fallen tremendously, but he could still go in the second round. The Bengals won't care about his off the field problems.

54. Detroit Lions - Whitney Mercilus, DE

The Lions could look for depth on the defensive line.

55. Atlanta Falcons - David Wilson, RB

I haven't heard a lot of talk about the Falcons taking a RB, but they may need to. Michael Turner is on his last legs and declined a bit last year. Wilson is also one of the BPA.

56. Pittsburgh Steelers - Alameda Ta'amu, NT

The Steelers could look for a new NT. Casey Hampton is old and often injured.

57. Denver Broncos - Brandon Thompson, DT

The Broncos need help at the DT position. They may take someone like Thompson to help eat up blockers to clear the way for Dumervil and Miller.

58. Houston Texans - A.J. Jenkins

The Texans' need a lot of help at WR so double dipping is entirely possible. Jeffery would be a nice outside option across from Johnson while Jenkins would slide nicely into the slot receiver position.

59. Green Bay Packers - Ron Brooks, CB

The Packers could use some depth at the CB position. Charles Woodson can't play forever.

60. Baltimore Ravens - Vinny Curry, DE/OLB

The Ravens could look for a pass rusher.

61. San Francisco 49ers - Brandon Brooks, G

The 49ers need help on the offensive line. They could target an offensive lineman in round 1 if they get jumped for Fleener.

62. New England Patriots - LaMichael James, RB

I know the Patriots just took two RBs last year, but this seems like something they would do. They like taking players that offer different things to them. And they let BJGE go in FA, so adding another RB to the rotation wouldn't be entirely out of the equation. Bottom line, no one knows what NE will do. If they even stay at this pick, which is unlikely in itself, they could consider taking someone like LaMichael James.

63. New York Giants - Lavonte David, LB

Again, the Giants take someone who could be their BPA.

Can't pass up Mercilus in the 2nd round and Andre Branch sucks.

Rather have Silatolu at 23 than Hightower even if Silatolu maybe a slight reach there.

Mercilus in the second would be outstanding value for Detroit and id love that pick Cool

Great Bengals 1st round, but no way Dennard is worth a 2nd rounder. Give us Mercilus there

Big thanks to kacymcbryant18 for the sig....^^

I like Kirkpatrick but I'd prefer going with Still in the 1st and then Vinny Curry in the 2nd.

Avery Williamson
