1 Houston Texans - Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
Houston can do whatever they want. And I believe that this is a way safer pick. Houston is not that bad of a team. Just two years ago, they were in the playoffs. I think they sure up that offensive line first.

2 *St. Louis Rams (WAS) - Greg Robinson OT Auburn
This is a must and simple pick. #1 need to help Sam Bradford stay in the pocket.

3 Jacksonville Jaguars - Johnny Manziel OB Texas A&M

Jacksonville needs to put butts in seats. And who else to bring in media attention and ticket sales than the very talented Johnny Manziel.

4 Cleveland Browns - Blake Bortles QB Central Florida

Cleveland has been looking and looking and looking for a QB since Bernie Kosar. Blake Bortles is mobile, tall and has two probowl threats to pass to.

5 Oakland Raiders - Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
Finally! Oakland has a legit QB. Now, they can build around him.

6 Atlanta Falcons - Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina

This is so obvious and the safest pick.

7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Taylor Lewan OT Michigan

Best player available and helps fill a need

8 Minnesota Vikings - Kony Ealy DE Missouri
This is not a reach. I expect ealy to jump up boards after his combine and pro day.

9 Buffalo Bills - Anthony Barr OLB UCLA

The Bills need to bring in a better defense.

10 Detroit Lions- Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
Calvin Johnson will smile. Someone with speed and hands will release the pressure off of him.

11 Tennessee Titans - Dee Ford DE Auburn

One of the other rising prospects from a great combine and pro day.

12 *Philadelphia Eagles (NYG) - Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo

Eagles make a trade with the enemy. But it is for good reason, they need a pass rushing OLB for their new defensive scheme.

13 St. Louis Rams - Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
Rams drafted Tavon Austin. But he is more of slot receiver. And with Calvin Johnson putting on a clinic in the NFL, the extremely tall receivers are about to be a normal like the physical corner. Rams want that #1 WR who can make a impact.

14 Chicago Bears - Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh

If you dont know about this defensive tackle. Watch some Pittsburgh highlights. This kid was in the backfield damn near every play. He is a potential pro bowler.

15 Pittsburgh Steelers - Zack Martin OT Notre Dame

Big Ben will finally smile.

16 Dallas Cowboys - Hesean Clinton-Dix Safety Alabama

As a Cowboys fan. This is only a dream scenario since we never know what Jerrah Jones is gonna do. Hopefully, he drafts a need. But with the way the coaching is in Dallas, Clinton-Dix might wanna pull a Eli Manning.

17 *Carolina Panthers (BAL) - Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State

Carolina pulls off a shocking trade. I didn't do this for fun. I thought that this was the best team to trade up and grab a true need. With the Panthers being a playoff team, Cam Newton needs more weapons. Especially with an aging Steve Smith.

18 NY Jets - Marquise Lee WR USC
Rex Ryan has been notorious for not paying enough attention to the offensive side of the ball. I think that ends with this talented WR. This is a steal because Lee wouldve been a top ten WR in last years draft if he left.

19 Miami Dolphins - Cyrus Kouanjidio OT Alabama

Miami has issues on the offensive line. But that was because of bullygate. But I think Incognito returns, but Martin wont.

20 Arizona Cardinals - Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
Best corner in the draft. Lockdown CB. We might be talking about Dennard in a few years about being the best.

21 Green Bay Packers - Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech

everyone is all about Eric Ebron. But I think this TE will be high on the Packers board. We have to remember that the teams have their own draft boards.

22 *NY Giants (PHI) - CJ Mosely MLB Alabama
Giants traded with Philly, and I think they miss Jon Beason.

23 Kansas City Chiefs - RaShede Hagerman DT Minnesota

Chiefs need some help on that defensive line. I think hagerman moves to DE

24. Cincinnati Bengals - Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State

I was tempted to go QB here. Based on how bad Andy Dalton has been. But their corners are kinda old as well.

25 San Diego Chargers - Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State
Ohio State's defense was bad, but Shazier was the best player on that defense. And he will have a very impressive combine I believe.

26 *Cleveland Browns (IND) - David Yankey OG Stanford

So far, Cleveland is making an impact in this draft. Need after need.

27 New Orleans Saints - Jason Verrett CB Vanderbilt

Saints defense was really impressive. I think they sure up that secondary.

28 *Baltimore Ravens (CAR) - Allen Robsinson WR Penn State
Ravens traded with Carolina. I think they still go WR and grab a steal in the very talented Allen Robinson from Penn State.

29 New England Patriots - Louis Nix DT Notre Dame

They needed defensive line help. Perfect 34 NT

30 San Francisco 49ers - Trent Murphy DE Standford

Trent Murphy will be a great DE to help that defense.

31 *Houston Texans (DEN) - Derek Carr QB Fresno State
Houston makes a splash and trades back into the first round. I believe that the Texans decided to take the risk and move up two spots. Derek Carr is very underrated, and a perfect fit with his Brother's former team. Maybe he will have a better career and bring back greatness to the Carr name and legacy.

32 Seattle Seahawks - Eric Ebron TE North Carolina

What do they really need? I gave them a TE to help out on offense


Trades:
Philadelphia receives:
1st (2014)

NY Giants receives:
1st (2014)
3rd (2014)
7th (2015)
----------------------------------------------
Carolina receives:
1st round pick (#17)

Baltimore receives:
1st (2014)
1st (2015)
3rd round (2014)
------------------------------------------------
Houston receives:
1st (2014)

Denver receives:
2nd (2014)
6th (2014)

If anyone is wondering why Houston is back in the first round. Denver could easily draft Carr to have someone replace Manning when he retires. So Houston just made the simple trade with it only being two spots up

Except they drafted Brock Osweiler in round 2...it would be very dumb to draft ANOTHER QB in a high round when you are set for a title run


Also Teddy>>>Manziel

Khalil Mack fits our scheme better than Anthony Barr

Not a texans fan but I think they take clowney in that scenario. He would be a ridiculously good 3-4 Olb lined up on the same side of Watt and would push Houston's pass rush to elite and maybe the best in the nfl. Just my two cents. Plus Houston's left tackle, Duane Brown is an excellent blocker and had an off year. Matthews isnt worth the #1 overall pick to be a right tackle.

Give Denver Houston's fifth in that move no point in swapping down for a 6th

I'd rather have Khalil Mack over Watkins

No thanks to Martin in the 1st for the Steelers. When all is said and done, he'll be an OG and the Steelers do not need anymore guards.

Lee is a reach at 18. Ebron would be a much better pick. Oo

Shazier is not a 3-4 OLB.

Watkins, Mack or even Dee Ford make more sense than Lewan. Our bigger need is guard. Dotson played excellent at RT and could move to left if needed, but Penn still had a few years left....

Lewan doesn't make much sense unless we cut penn
