ROUND 1
1. Houston Texans -- Jadeveon Clowney [DE; South Carolina]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Likely changes with new coaching staff but need based is historic
Team Needs -- QB, OLB, RT, LG, NT
Notes:
QB is the #1 focus this offseason. Bringing in a edge rusher is a big need as well as Romeo Crennel's scheme calls for more pass rush out of the edge positions than the DL. A two-gap NT is a need as is LG & RT. I believe this pick comes down to one questions. Do they believe the QB that they can select at #1 is that much better than a QB at #33 and is it worth passing on a once in a decade prospect in Clowney, which is also a need position? While Romeo Crennel asks for two-gap DL prospects in his scheme Clowney has the athleticism to rush from the OLB spot or put his hand in the dirt from the 5 tech. I just believe he is too good a prospect to pass up at this point in the process.

2. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington) -- Greg Robinson [OT; Auburn]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Snead is a risk/reward boom/bust believer. Will take a chance to hit big.
Team Needs -- OL, FS, CB, WR, SLB
Notes:
This is a luxury pick for the Rams so I expect two things to occur. One being a trade down or two the Rams selecting the best player on their draft board. If Clowney doesn't go #1 I doubt he gets by #2. I even believe the Rams would take him here and add him to the stable of pass rushing specialists. For sake of keeping it simple I will not project a trade. The OL is the weak spot on offense for St. Louis. LT, Jake Long is coming off a knee injury in December. C, Scott Wells and RG, Harvey Dahl are too pricey and may be cut and RT, Rodger Saffold is a UFA. Expect two picks inside the first 3 rounds along the OL. FS is still a need as Rodney McLeod can't be counted on. WR has a lot of young underdeveloped talent so adding a bonafide #1 guy is a need still although it would go against the GM's public remarks. Addressing the nickel CB spot is a mid round need. Given Greg Robinson's elite upside and the front office's history in rolling the dice I believe they would bypass Jake Matthews here for a player in Robinson with higher upside. Depending on Jake Long's week one status Robinson can play LT and RT when he returns. Protecting Sam Bradford has to be a priority this offseason.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Johnny Manziel [QB; Texas A&M]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Caldwell leaned toward solving one area of need last year in the secondary with 5 of 8 being DB's. Maybe OL this year building around the new franchise guy at QB
Team Needs -- QB, OL, DE, RB, TE
Notes:
It is public knowledge the Jags will draft a QB thanks to owner, Shad Khan. Bringing in a difference making pass rusher would be huge for Gus Bradley's defense. LG, C, RG & RT should all be addressed making OL the biggest offseason need, IMO. With a rookie QB likely starting on day 1 the RB position needs some kind of foundation and a TE to grow with is warranted if Marcedes Lewis departs.

4. Cleveland Browns -- Sammy Watkins [WR; Clemson]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Lombardi seems to live by the H/W/S combo ala Bill Parcells traditions. Likes Athleticism
Team Needs -- QB, RB, WR, CB, C
Notes:
The clear focus is bringing in a young franchise QB to challenge Brian Hoyer from day one. I believe Cleveland will be squeezing their shorts as hard as possible hoping Johnny Manziel makes it to #4. The phone will likely be ringing off the hook in St. Louis if Houston bypasses the player Cleveland likely covets and I believe they would package a pick or two to move up however this is not a mock where I project trades. In this situation their guy goes to Jacksonville so regrouping and diving into plan B takes center stage. Looking over the needs list RB need a talent infusion badly. WR leaves a lot to be desired behind Josh Gordon who is one beer away from not playing again. If C, Alex Mack is not resigned that leaves a void. Bringing in a challenger to Buster Skrine at CB may be a priority. In the end Sammy Watkins is the most dynamic playmaker available and teaming him with Josh Gordon will assist in their quest to infuse talent on offense.

5. Oakland Raiders -- Jake Matthews [LT; Texas A&M]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Reggie McKenzie hasn't had many high picks in his tenure but has selected based on need and positional value so far
Team Needs -- QB, LT, G, DE, DT, WR, RB
Notes:
Everyone sees the long term need at QB. LT, Jared Veldheer is a UFA and reports are the contract terms being offered and not what Veldheer is looking for. Both G spots need long term starters. Every starter on the DL is a UFA and DE and DT are needs even if all return. RB & WR could use dynamite talents at the position. At this pick Reggie McKenzie needs to take the best player on their draft board. Reports out of Oakland have them linked to multiple UFA QB options and likely because Dennis Allen is coaching for his job. Bringing in a rookie QB here will not help him keep it. Oakland needs to take the BPA and the consensus amongst big boards would have that be Matthews.

6. Atlanta -- Anthony Barr [DE/OLB; UCLA]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Dimitroff favors high character squeaky clean team leaders at need positions. Not a BPA guy
Team Needs -- DE, OL, DT, TE
Notes:
ATL has needed a dynamic young pass rusher for years. Someone who can stand up and/or put his hand down is a major need. Anthony Barr is exactly the kind of prospect Dimitroff covets. Khalil Mack does not have the squeaky clean background the front office tends to lean to. Barr a senior, team captain, leader with high upside will help with Mike Nolan's disguise type pressure packages. Reports are Osi Umenyiora is likely sticking around another season which leads me to believe adding a more versatile edge presence is the focus looking away from the DL which does not present value here. Timmy Jernigan is the highest rated DT but not at #6. While the entire OL needs to be addressed, IMO that will wait now that Matthews and Robinson are gone. C and RG are major need areas as is RT. LT, Sam Baker will probably be given one more season to prove his current contract. TE, Tony Gonzalez's retirement leaves a void and the top 3 DT's are all UFA's. Atlanta could not run the ball at all last season but Steven Jackson will likely be given another year.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-- Khalil Mack [DE/ SLB; Buffalo]
GM Draft Tendencies -- New GM Jason Licht comes from Arizona where the BPA approach was used. He'll carve out his own style though
Team Needs -- DE, G, C, MLB, TE
Notes:
DE is a major priority but one that could be addressed in free agency. However that process has not begun and adding a smaller, explosive edge rusher in Mack fits the mold for an acceptable DE type in the Tampa 2 scheme. The interior OL needs to be addressed. CB, Jonathan Banks struggled badly as so bringing in a vet to challenge him is likely. TE is a position without much luster currently. A MLB who can play in coverage is a must in Lovie's defense. Reading into CJ Mosley his injury history could hurt him on draft day so I went away from the elite coverage MLB to replace Mason Foster here and went with a higher rated player in Mack.

8. Minnesota Vikings -- Teddy Bridgewater [QB; Louisville]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Favors BPA
Team Needs -- QB, DE, DT, LG, CB
Notes:
The QB need is obvious as Matt Cassel should be viewed as the bridge and should be the only QB that sticks through 2014 if possible. Bridgewater seems to be sliding while Blake Bortles seems to be rising. I though about swapping Bortles here but think Bridgewater is more NFL ready and Minnesota needs their guy now to grow with the new coaching staff. The DL needs major attention as Jared Allen is likely a goner and DT Kevin Williams as well. Adding youth up front is likely in the early rounds. Another CB to team with Xavier Rhodes and replacing LG, Charlie Johnson are other needs. A guy like Mike Zimmer will likely add some cast away vets on that side of the ball and get them to play closer to their old potential. With explosive talents on offense QB is the focus here.

9. Buffalo Bills -- Eric Ebron [TE; North Carolina]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Doug Whaley comes from the Buddy Nix school where need based positional value impact guys are selected early
Team Needs -- TE, LG, RT, WR, FS, OLB
Notes:
Scott Chandler is a UFA and a more mis-match pass catcher joker type would help out a blossoming EJ Manuel greatly. LG was a revolving door all year and RT is also a positional need although Chris Hairston will return next season from injury. If Jarius Byrd departs a need opens at FS. OLB could be addressed as well but the focus will be on offense and building around EJ Manuel. They invested at WR last year in Woods & Goodwin but adding a big body would be welcome outside the hashes so Mike Evans will be in the discussion. With WR being so deep I think they look inside the hashes and Ebron brings that mis match ability Doug Marrone can game plan around.

10. Detroit Lions -- Mike Evans [WR; Texas A&M]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Mayhew is another needs based drafter early.
Team Needs -- WR, CB, TE, K, WLB
Notes:
Adding a WR opposite Calvin Johnson who is NFL ready is a major need. Mike Evans is a guy very similar to Calvin in size and would do well to learn how to run routes and refine his craft behind such a dynamic talent. CB is another area that should be focused on but they have invested there in recent years and the value does not match up right now at the 10 spot. TE, Brandon Pettigrew is a UFA and K needs to be stabilized.

11. Tennessee Titans -- Louis Nix III [NT; Notre Dame]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Ruston Webster will likely draft based on need
Team Needs -- NT, OT, RB, QB, OLB, CB
Notes:
QB, Jake Locker will get his final chance to show he can be a stable starting QB but Wisenhunt will demand change eventually. Chris Johnson will be cut and Shonn Greene is not explosive enough to make the foundation. Changing to the 3-4 will warrant and upgrade and scheme fit at NT and that will likely be priority #1 this offseason. Louis Nix brings a player with skills that cannot be coached. Mammoth size and talent to back it up align with the need based drafting philosophy Ruston Webster values. OT has been stable for years so Taylor Lewan may get consideration as Roos & Stewart are declining and pricey. CB, Verner needs to be resigned

12. New York Giants -- Timmy Jernigan [DT; Florida State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Jerry Reese is known to be a BPA early need guy late
Team Needs -- G, C, TE, OLB, CB, DL
Notes:
Putrid OL play was the Giants demise in 2013. Except for LT, Will Beatty and RT, Justin Pugh expect interior OL positions to all change for 2014. Zach Martin & Taylor Lewan are the highest rated players across the OL. Unless they plan to kick Pugh inside to RG an OT here is not likely. CB is a need area. WLB and SLB need upgrades and have for years. Jon Beason needs to be resigned otherwise add MLB to the need list. Grabbing a foundation type RB in the mid rounds is likely. TE, Brandon Myers is a disappointment. The old stable of pass rushers have died and DT needs youth badly. Where do you start? With the best player available and Timmy Jernigan is just that. Re-building the foundation that won them 2 Super Bowls is a step in the right direction.

13. St. Louis Rams -- Taylor Lewan [RT; Michigan]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Snead is a risk/reward boom/bust believer. Will take a chance to hit big.
Team Needs -- OL, FS, CB, WR, SLB
Notes:
Goodbye Jake Long and your monster contract. We have already discussed that OL is the weak spot on offense. LT, Jake Long is coming off a knee injury in December and we have seen teams double dip on need areas. This would allow them to unload his contract and continue the focus to rebuild the OL. FS is still a need so adding Clinton-Dix or Pryor is possible too but Lewan at RT and Robinson at LT is a great foundation.

14. Chicago Bears -- Ra'Shede Hageman [DT; Minnesota]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Emery likes H/W/S prospects
Team Needs -- DE, DT, S, CB, LB, C
Notes:
The entire DL needs new bodies. Peppers is a goner and McClellin is a bust at DE. DT, Henry Melton may be resigned but adding a starter at DT is needed. Hageman fits the prototype athletic talent Phil Emery covets. A boom or bust talent but none the less someone in the mid round 1 level is likely to roll the dice. Being such a need area I expect this position to be strongly considered if Hageman is available. LB and CB have needs as well as does S. Expect BPA on defense to be the story on draft day in the windy city although C, Roberto Garza is a UFA and 35

15. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Ha Ha Clinton-Dix [S; Alabama]
GM Draft Tendencies -- BPA with guys falling into their laps seems to be the philosophy in Pittsburgh
Team Needs -- LT, NT, DE, CB, S
Notes:
LT, Mike Adams is a bust. Adding a starter should be a first round need to consider but can Zach Martin really be considered at LT prospect? That is undecided. DE and NT are areas that starters are needed. Also round 1 consideration here but Hageman a five tech prospect just went off the board. WR on day 2-3 is likely to replace Sanders and Cotchery who are UFA's. Youth at CB may finally be a priority and Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu are up there in years so I think its time to rebuild the back half of this defense. Clinton-Dix would start immediately as Ryan Clark would see his walking papers.

T16. Baltimore Ravens -- Kelvin Benjamin [WR; Florida State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Ozzie is always a BPA guy
Team Needs -- OL, TE, WR, S
Notes:
Question marks exist across the entire OL. Monroe will be brought back at LT. Not sure about Michael Oher who is a UFA at RT. C is a major need. However we all saw what happened when Anquan Boldin was traded. WR is another major need area. Ozzie has always been a BPA guy and you cannot coach H/W/S. Benjamin is another vertical presence which fits Joe Flacco's skill set. S, James Ihedigbo is a UFA and Dennis Pitta as well but adding another wideout is need #1.

T16. Dallas Cowboys -- Calvin Pryor [FS; Louisville]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Oh Jerry! Need I say more. He is a go get them kind of guy. Aggressive to a fault generally. Takes chances
Team Needs -- DE, DT, S
Notes:
DT is the #1 need and a first round and free agency need area. Adding two guys is likely. S is still and long been a need area. DE needs youth and explosiveness and was the worst metric pass rush team in the NFL last season. The issue here is there is no DL prospect worth this pick. Suring up a position that has been an issue for years nets them Pryor an immediate starter and help to a struggling unit.

18. New York Jets -- Marqise Lee [WR; USC]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Idzik favored BPA in round 1 last season despite need
Team Needs -- WR, TE, G, FS, OLB
Notes:
WR is a must add as is a playmaking TE. The entire OL should be re-tooled starting at both guard spots and possibly RT. QB, Geno Smith will likely be given another year to show his stuff but adding a vet to push him is likely. S, Ed Reed can't be counted on for long and OLB is a need area as well. I think Lee slides a bit on draft day due to lack of concentration. Too many drops when you study him and he does not have the prototype size like Benjamin that makes you think he can win outside the numbers consistently. However he could be the best player available on the Jets board still. Only CJ Mosley has a higher grade for sure at this stage in the process but I am dropping him due to injury history and ILB is not a need for the Jets.

19. Miami Dolphins -- Justin Gilbert [CB; Oklahoma State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- new GM Dennis Hickey, so no precedent yet
Team Needs -- OT, LG, CB, DT, RB
Notes:
OL, specifically LT, RT and LG need 2014 starters. Resigning Brent Grimes is a must and they still need another starter. DT has UFA's in Starks and Soliai and the Phins could not run the ball effectively last season. I truly believe Brandon Albert is going to finally be a Dolphin. They will pay the big bucks and solid this spot come March. While RT and LG remain huge needs and Zach Martin can play either spot they need a starting CB. Gilbert is the #1 CB in the class and would be a welcome addition

20. Arizona Cardinals -- Blake Bortles [QB; UCF]
GM Draft Tendencies -- It has been BPA for years
Team Needs -- LT, QB, OLB, ILB, CB, QB
Notes:
LT is a major need area as its been turnstile for years but for some reason Bruce Arians STILL doesn't see if as a high priority. A long term answer at QB should be considered early if someone is available and that is exactly what happens here due to no trades in this mock. I think Cleveland or Houston would move up to secure Bortles if he passed #8. However giving Bortles a year behind Palmer is exactly what he needs. An OLB & ILB to develop behind J.Abe and Dansby, who are aging is also needed but could be more mid round adds. Look for a mid-late round CB this year as well.

21.Green Bay Packers -- Stephon Tuitt [DE; Notre Dame]
GM Draft Tendencies -- TT leans BPA but heavily favoring positional value
Team Needs -- FS, DT, DE, TE, S
Notes:
NT and DE big bodies Ryan Pickett and BJ Raji could both depart. Teaming Tuitt who I believe could continue to slide on draft day with Datone Jones would be another piece to the long-term puzzle on the DL. FS is a need with MD Jennings not starting material but there is not a first round guy worthy of this pick. TE, Jermichael Finley can't be counted on so that position could be a target here. C, Dietrich-Smith should be resigned. Adding a backup QB is also needed later on.

22. Philadelphia Eagles -- Darqueze Dennard [CB; Michigan State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- BPA approach
Team Needs -- S, NT, WR, CB
Notes:
Nate Allen and Pat Chung could both be out so adding starters at S is primary on defense. Secondary would be upgrading at CB and adding a NT to rotate with Bennie Logan is needed. Cooper and Maclin are UFA's at WR but one will be resigned. Bring in Dennard. If he times well and shows he can play off coverage he will go a lot higher. Right now this is about where he will come off the board and its a need for Philly.

23. Kansas City Chiefs -- Odell Beckham Jr. [WR; LSU]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Need based
Team Needs -- OT, RG, FS, WR, DE
Notes:
LT and RG starters at UFA's. FS Kendrick Lewis is a UFA. Bringing in more talent at WR should be strongly considered. With Dexter McCluster a UFA also Beckham could be just what the Dr. ordered. A great return man and explosive talent at WR Beckham could be a vital piece to the offense in 2013.

24. Cincinnati Benglas -- CJ Mosley [LB; Alabama]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Favors large schools in competetive conferences who alreqady have played a lot of games againsty top competition
Team Needs -- CB, DT, DE, SLB, S, OT
Notes:
CB was decimated by injuries and adding another body is likely. What about QB? Picking here you won't get an upgrade over Dalton though. DE will be considered at some point with Michael Johnson likely gone. DT Geno Atkins had a bad injury and Peko and Geathers are pricey mainstays. Bringing in another mid-late round OT is likely as well. However in Mike Brown fashion a sliding highly regarded prospect falls and the Bengals scoop him up. He can slide in at MLB and would be an upgrade in coverage to Maualuga. Injury history/medical always drops someone on draft day and this year it could be Mosley.

25. San Diego Chargers -- Dee Ford [OLB; Auburn]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Telesco favors best player available at a position of need. This year mentioned pressing need at OLB and wanting to get faster on offense
Team Needs -- CB, G, OLB, NT, WR
Notes:
CB needs one maybe two new starters if they want to improve next season as Wright, Cox and Marshall all struggled badly. Adding a WR opposite Allen is a need. NT with Cam Thomas a UFA will be addressed at some point. Possible resign although Cam had a down year. LG, Chad Rinehart should be resigned but RG is a need still. Adding another OLB is likely and Telesco made it a point to announce their focus to add another edge rusher. Dee Ford is a climber and likely a late first round talent thanks to his senior bowl performance.

26. Cleveland Browns (f/Indianapolis) -- Derek Carr [QB; Fresno State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Lombardi seems to live by the H/W/S combo ala Bill Parcells traditions. Likes Athleticism
Team Needs -- QB, RB, WR, CB, C
Notes:
Here is the back side to plan B working in action. Someone using pick 26 and possible another to move up or secure a QB in this area. With Bortles sliding I think they would have moved him for him but Derek Carr and Sammy Watkins is not a bad consolation prize. Who would you rather have Watkins/Carr or Bridgewater/Jarvis Landry? Of course using both picks for Johnny Manziel is plan A.

27. New Orleans Saints -- Zach Martin [RT; Notre Dame]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Loomis is a BPA at positional need early
Team Needs -- OLB, C, RT, CB, S
Notes:
The window is starting to close for NO so giving Drew Brees tools for a couple more runs is likely. OL will be a focus with C and RT starters UFA's. Jahri Evans is a restructure candidate but likely will stick around. I know Micky Loomis tends to lean towards late round OL prospects but Charles Brown was a 2nd round pick and Zach Martin is the highest rated player available. CB is a likely first round need area with Jabari Greer coming off an ACL tear at 32 and there is talent available who could be considered. Bringing in another pass rushing OLB is likely but not here/now. Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper could both depart as UFA and cap casualties especially if they resign Jimmy Graham.

28. Carolina Panthers -- Jarvis Landry [WR; LSU]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Need based
Team Needs -- CB, S, WR, OL
Notes:
DB will be a first round priority as Florence, Munnerlyn, Mitchell and Mikell are all UFA's. WR is a clear need with no difference makers outside of aging Steve Smith who is now 35 so grabbing a player like Landy who is NFL ready is a welcome consideration. The OL could be re-tooled with LT, Gross & LG, Wharton pending UFA's and Byron Bell's play warranting a possible upgrade. This team must bring Greg Hardy back otherwise DE shoots to the top of the need list.

29. New England Patriots -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins [TE; Washington]
GM Draft Tendencies -- One never knows with BB
Team Needs -- TE, G/C, DT
Notes:
TE is an obvious need first round need area and wit ASJ and Amaro available BB will likely pull the trigger on the higher of the two rated players. Conventional wisdown says Amaro here which is why I went the other direction. DT, Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly are coming off season ending injuries and Aaron Donald is still available. My issue with Donald is at 6ft his arms must be very long or he's a 2nd round pick. Until that measurement I'm passing on him. Plus BB likes two-gap DT's and Donald is more of a penetrator. CB, Aqib Talib is a must resign otherwise a #1 CB becomes a priority. I don't see WR being a need as they have young talent that needs to grow there in Dobson & Thompkins. Interior OL depth should be addressed in the mid-rounds.

30. San Francisco 49ers -- Allen Robinson [WR; Penn State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Trent Baalke usually goes BPA
Team Needs -- WR, CB, SS, ILB, DL
Notes:
Getting a WR that can create separation off the line is a definite target and Bolding & Manningham are UFA's. Robinson is big and physical and would be a nice addition for Kaep. CB, Carlos Rodgers may be released for a 6.6M salary and RCB Tarell Brown is a pending UFA. CB, Chris Culliver is also coming off a torn ACL so Cb could be an early round consideration. SS, Donte Whitner may bolt in free agency and they don't have a starter on the roster today. Depth at ILB with Bowman's injury could warrant a mid-late round pick.

31. Denver Broncos -- Ryan Shazier [MLB; Ohio State]
GM Draft Tendencies -- John Elway seems to be a need based drafter.
Team Needs -- CB, WR, LG, MLB, DL
Notes:
DRC is a UFA, Champ Bailey could be a cap casualty and Chris Harris tore his ACL in January so CB is probably the pick here but I wanted to get Shazier in round 1 and there is a need a LB with Woodyard and Lenon leaving a lot to be desired. I think its one of the handful of late round 1 corners or Shazier here. WR, Eric Decker is a UFA and may be priced out of the Broncos territory. Wes Welker is 33 and has conssusion issues and Demaryius Thomas is entering his contract year. Starting LG, Zane Beadles is a UFA too.

32. Seattle Seahawks -- Cyrus Kouandjio [OT; Alabama]
GM Draft Tendencies -- John Schneider wants impressive measurables on day 1 & 2. Favors elite potential and is not afraid of off the field baggage
Team Needs -- WR, RT, LG, K, DE, CB
Notes:
RT, Breno Giacomini is a UFA and should be upgraded if possible leaving Kouandjio as a likely target. Plus when Okung get to the end of his contract he can slide to the left side as they won't be able to afford him. LG was a turnstile position all season with rotating players who never nailed down the starting spot so a guard could be considered here. WR, Sidney Rice will be a cap casuality while Baldwin & Tate have expiring deals. Percy Harvin is injury prone although dominant. DE, Michael Bennett is a UFA & Chris Clemons may be priced off the roster at 7.5M. I doubt they can afford to resign Hauschka with Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman's new contracts approaching so a young leg is likely. CB depth was exposed and Brandon Browner can't be counted on next season. A lot to consider for Seattle at #32.

I like Dennard as BPA at 22.

You are missing a way bigger need than NT, OLB.

I personally prefer Matthews over Robinson. Other than that we don't need two OT in the first round. Second pick will either be traded down or CB, FS, WR and possible DT would be taken there.

I'm torn. I love Mosely as a prospect, but he would be playing SLB for us. I don't see us moving Rey to SLB again.

I'd rather go WR if we pick offense in the first, but I like Martin as a prospect so not bad. Clean mock too, I like the layout. I'm in the middle of making my mock, and we have a lot of the same picks.

Swap the Falcons and Bucs picks and players and you actually have 2 guys that fit the teams schemes much better. Barr doesn't have the coverage skill or run defense than Mack does and it's actually not close in those 2 areas. Barr is a better speed rusher off the edge than Mack but thats pretty much it.

With what we have personally seen Nolan do with guys like Biermann, Abraham, and Osi then it pretty much shows we need a guy who can drop in coverage from that position at a high level. Mack is the choice here for the Falcons.

I'd much prefer Odell Beckham Jr. for the Jets.

Raiders will not pass on bridgewater at 5. Even if he wasn't there, the raiders would take barr or mack because of the need at pass rush. When healthy, Menelik Watson and Jared Veldheer are excellent OT's. There is also no way that Veldheer leaves Oakland, as he understandably wants to get a deal done, but he wants to be a "raider for life" no matter what. I see no need for matthews whatsoever at 5. Otherwise, I like this draft and I like that you put down needs and draft tendencies.

Awesome but not happening. Also in your description you said we need an ILB to develop behind Dansby and D Wash but we already have Minter whom we drafted in the 2nd round last year so there isn't much of a need at ILB.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Johnny Manziel [QB; Texas A&M]
GM Draft Tendencies -- Caldwell leaned toward solving one area of need last year in the secondary with 5 of 8 being DB's. Maybe OL this year building around the new franchise guy at QB
Team Needs -- QB, OL, DE, RB, TE
Notes:
It is public knowledge the Jags will draft a QB thanks to owner, Shad Khan. Bringing in a difference making pass rusher would be huge for Gus Bradley's defense. LG, C, RG & RT should all be addressed making OL the biggest offseason need, IMO. With a rookie QB likely starting on day 1 the RB position needs some kind of foundation and a TE to grow with is warranted if Marcedes Lewis departs.




1) It was public knowledge this team would be drafting a QB long before the owner said anything. I am pretty sure once Chad Henne replaced Gabbert midseason it was fairly apparent a QB would be brought in this coming offseason.
2) I am not really sure why people think Bridgewater is not going to go before Manziel. I totally get the possibility of Bortles going before Teddy simply because of size reasons, but there is literally no legitimate reason Teddy should not go before Manziel, and it is my hope the GM here would grab Teddy and not reach for Manziel, especially if you envision the OL getting nice and built up this offseason.
