Hey guys and gals! This is the first NFL mock draft I have done with my new blog. I know it is a bit late than most of them, but I guess nonetheless it still works lol. I did one part each of the past 3 weeks, just to help spread it out for me.

Also comment away Very Happy


#1 Houston Texans -
Needs: QB, T, OLB/DE

Talk about starting this mock draft with a tough decision. Do you take arguably the best player in the draft in Clowney and pair him with Watt to form possibly the best defensive end combo in the league or do take a quarterback in a deep draft class? I would go with Clowney, pair him with Watt, and draft a QB in the second round.

Pick: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina


#2 St. Louis Rams -
Needs: WR, S, T, LB

With Jared Cook being the leading receiver last year for the Rams, they need another solid outside option for Bradford. Only two players had over 500 yds receiving last year (Cook, Givens) after departure on Danny Amendola and Bradon Gibson. The Rams could also use help along the offensive line, but it hard to pass up on a solid wide receiver with this pick.

Pick: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson


#3 Jacksonville Jaguars -
Needs: QB, DE, T, WR

The Jaguars have done a lot this year to revamp their team. They signed two former Seahawks (Red Bryant/Chris Clemons), didnt resign MJD, signed Toby Gerhart, and help their offensive line with signing Broncos guard Zane Beadles. However, they still have Henne and Gabbert at the helm and Henne isnt getting any younger.

Pick: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida


#4 Cleveland Browns -
Needs: QB, CB, WR, OL

Here is another team that needs a quarterback and its like gold this year. Brandon Weeden is 31 years old this year and isnt getting any younger. Campbell is gone (Cincinnati). I feel really the only option is quarterback.

Pick: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M


#5 Oakland Raiders -
Needs: WR, CB, DE, OL

Oakland will definitely have a different look next year. The Raiders took the plunge and signed big names such as Maurice Jones-Drew, Matt Schaub, Justin Tuck, Lamarr Woodley, Carlos Rogers, and James Jones. While Mike Evans would be a solid pick at this point, Greg Robinson would basically be a steal at this point depsite he was a top three pick.

Pick: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn


#6 Atlanta Falcons -
Needs: OLB/DE, T, TE, S

The Falcons kind of fall into the same category as the Raiders. While they could take a tight end with Tony G, retiring, but with Mack falling all the way down to the sixth pick its kind of hard to pass on him. Atlanta has been in need of a top notch linebacker since the departure of Curtis Lofton

Pick: Khalil Mack, LB/DE, Buffalo


#7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers -
Needs: G, WR, OLB, DE

Tampa has been active this offseason in addressing a few big needs with adding Michael Johnson and Alterraun Verner. However, they created a small hole when they traded away Mike Williams to Buffalo. Yes they still have Vincent Jackson, but he is 31 years old and will need another wide receiver to take Williams' slot.

Pick: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M


#8 Minnesota Vikings -
Needs: QB, CB, WR, S

This slot puts the Vikings into a tough slot. I'm guessing they are hoping that Bortles/Manziel fall to them or maybe they do a trade with the Rams.However, with really no top cornerbacks or defensive ends in the top 10 they opt for other secondary help.

Pick: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama


#9 Buffalo Bills -
Needs: T, WR, S, TE

Buffalo staffers might be happy with this thus far. They are able to draft a top tackle that is expected to be a top five pick and arguably the second overall tackle in the draft. They traded for Mike Williams from Tampa, which takes wide receiver out of the equation for now.

Pick: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M


#10 Detroit Lions -
Needs: CB, S, DE, WR, OLB

The Lions have several places they can go with this pick. They could go secondary with Justin Gilbert or in state product Darqueze Dennard. They also could go with pass rushing linebacker in Anthony Barr or middle man C.J Mosley. However, they face Rodgers and Cutler twice a year and possibly a solid rookie quarterback (such as Bortles/Manziel). This may be a reach with this pick, but with him being the best in the class and at a position of need.

Pick: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State


#11 Tennessee Titans
Needs: CB, QB, DE, RB

The Titans sit in a curious position right now with their team. They cut running back Chris Johnson, lost cornerback Alterraun Verner, however, on the flip side they signed offensive tackle Michael Oher, wide receiver Dexter McCluster, and linebacker Wesley Woodyard. Do the Titans think they can win with Jake Locker or do they also dip into the quarterback pool and pick one of those guys? If they go some other position than quarterback in the first, they could possibly go with one in the second or third rounds or gamble with Locker for another year or two.

Pick: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State


#12 New York Giants
Needs: TE, G/C, WR, DL, LB

Eli had a pathetic year in 2013, throwing for twenty-seven interceptions and eighteen touchdowns. They lost Hakeem Nicks to Indy and Brandon Myers to Tampa Bay, which puts a damper on their receiving core. Manning could use a eccentric pass catching tight end to help him out of jams, unlike last year.

Pick: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina


#13 St. Louis Rams
Needs: WR, S, RT, LB

After surprising a few people and selecting Sammy Watkins with their first pick of the draft, the Rams could still snag a solid quarterback in Bridgewater or they could build along the offensive line, especially with the sixth overall player sitting there and looking them in the face. They lost three offensive linemen this offseason (Chris Williams to Buffalo, Shelly Smith to Miami, Harvey Dahl). The Rams would have love to see Clinton-Dix fall to them with this pick, but I don't think they can complain.

Pick: Taylor Lewan, OL, Michigan


#14 Chicago Bears
Needs: DT, S, CB, WR

The Bears added some much need pass rush with the addition of Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston, however, the lost big man up the middle Henry Melton and defensive end Julius Peppers. The Bears defense ranked dead last in the NFL last year allowing over 160 rushing yards per game.

Pick: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh


#15 Pittsburgh Steelers
Needs: CB, WR, DL, OL

The Steelers lost two of their top three receivers from the 2013 season in which only Antonio Brown, Heath Miller and Le'Veon Bell are their top three going into the 2014 season. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, this draft is chalk full of wide receivers. They could build along the defense with losing such big names as Lamarr Woodley, Ziggy Hood, and Ryan Clark, however I see a bigger need on the offense.

Pick: Odell Beckham Jr, WR, LSU


#16 Dallas Cowboys
Needs: DE, DT, S, G, WR

Dallas was quite awful on the defensive side of the fall in 2013. They finished 30th in opponent passing yards and 27th in opponent rushing yards and to make matter worse they lost defensive tackle Jason Hatcher and linebacker DeMarcus Ware. They did sign Henry Melton from Chicago, but that's one guy. They would have loved to seen Donald slip past Chicago at #14.

Pick: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA


#17 Baltimore Ravens
Needs: FS, TE, LB, RT, WR

The Ravens have quite a few needs this draft. They lost Tackle Michael Oher, starting safety James Ihedigbo, tight ends Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark, and defensive end Arthur Jones. However on the other end, they re-signed Dennis Pitta and Jacoby Jones and made a huge splash in signed cut wide receiver Steve Smith. There isn't a big pool for safeties at this point and offensive line is a big need right now.

Pick: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame


#18 New York Jets
Needs: WR, CB, TE, LB

Signing Eric Decker was very huge for this team that lacked playmakers last year. It didn't help that rookie quarterback Geno Smith didn't have the best year and only receiver Jeremy Kerley was able to eclipsed over 500 receiving yards. The Jets shocked some people signing Chris Johnson who was cut from the Titans, which will help Smith in the passing game. However, you cant have enough playmakers on a team with a young quarterback.

Pick: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State


#19 Miami Dolphins
Needs: RT, G, S, CB

Mike Wallace's big contract didn't help out as much as the Dolphins would hoped it would have, however, Brian Hartline definitely made a big step in 2013. Miami helped themselves by signing former Chiefs offensive lineman Brandon Albert and Texans nose tackle Earl Mitchell. They did lose starting safety Chris Clemons and starting corner Dimitri Patterson, which put a big hit on their secondary.

Pick: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville


#20 Arizona Cardinals
Needs: S, OLB, TE, WR

The Cardinals needs along the front line was addressed by signing tackle Jared Veldheer from Oakland, but they lost some big names on the defensive side of the ball. While Arizona was hoping at least Calvin Pryor to fall to them, there is not another safety they like in the first round anyway. They need more playmakers on both sides of the ball, but what do they plan to do when Palmer retires?

Pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville


#21 Green Bay Packers
Needs: S, ILB, TE, DL

Picking all the way down here and expecting a big need to fall right into their laps wasn't what they planned. Their defense finished in the bottom half of the league in opponent passing and rushing yards and could use more help up the middle.

Pick: C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama


#22 Philadelphia Eagles
Needs: WR, OLB, S

Philadelphia will have a much different look at wide receiver this upcoming year. There will be no #10 streaking down the field and throwing the football before he reaches the goal line. However, they need help secondary wise. The Eagles were dead last in opponent passing yards per game, allowing almost 300 yards per game. Nick Foles made a big stride last year and with no Michael Vick, only Mark Sanchez to compete with him, his job is safe.....

Pick: Marqise Lee, WR, USC


#23 Kansas City Chiefs
Needs: WR, S, G

Alex Smith certainly came out of no where and helped lead the Chiefs to the playoffs, along with the help of Jamaal Charles. If Kansas City wants to get back to the playoffs they will need more offensive weapons. They lost Dexter McCluster to Tennessee and a few key defensive weapons as well. I could see Kansas City taking a safety here, but IMO it is too much of a reach right here.

Pick: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State


#24 Cincinnati Bengals
Needs: CB, LT, C, DE

Cincinnati was very good in almost every aspect of their game last year. They finished in the top five in opponent passing yards, rushing yards, and top ten in offensive passing yards. There weak spot seemed to be running the ball, but as the season went on last years pick Giovanni Bernard started to turn up the heat. The Bengals could pretty much go anywhere with this pick such as Morgan Moses (OT) or Kony Ealy (DE, to replace the departed Michael Johnson). I see them upgrading their defense and teaming a solid cornerback with Dre Kirkpatrick.

Pick: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State


#25 San Diego Chargers
Needs: CB, DT, WR, OLB

The Chargers kept most of they team intact this offseason. The play of Rivers and Keenan Allen certainly helped this team. They did add running back Donald Brown and Kavell Conner from the Colts in order to add solid depth to their team. Their biggest weakness was against the pass, which doesn't help when you have to play Peyton Manning twice a year. Which is why I could see them taking a cornerback or a big man up the middle to disrupt the pass.

Pick: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota


#26 Cleveland Browns
Needs: QB, CB, WR, OL

After filling one big need and taking Johnny Manziel with their first pick, they can continue to rebuild this team. The biggest surprise from last year was the trading of Trent Richardson in the middle of the season. Willis McGahee and Chris Ogbonnaya combined for 617 rushing yards between them. While taking a stub running back here would be great, there just isn't the value for one here. They still could use a solid cornerback opposite of Joe Haden

Pick: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech


#27 New Orleans Saints
Needs: CB, OLB, WR

As usual, the Saints were exceptionally good at passing the ball. The emergence of Cameron Jordan and the play of then rookie Kenny Vaccaro certainly helped New Orleans vault to the #2 slot in opponent passing yards per game. The Saints could use more depth in the secondary (although they did sign Champ Bailey) and linebacker.

Pick: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State


#28 Carolina Panthers
Needs: LT, WR, CB. S

Carolina is in a very precarious position with the #28 pick. They lost their top three wide receivers (Smith, Ginn, LaFell), two defensive starters (Mike Mitchell, Captain Munnerlyn), and their top offensive tackle to retirement. At this point in the draft they could trade back and snag a few extra picks to add depth to the team, however, I see them staying right here (unless they get a good offer) and taking the best player available.

Pick: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia


#29 New England Patriots
Needs: TE, DL, WR, S

The Patriots Super Bowl stock took a hit when Aaron Hernandez was accused of murder, and Rob Gronkowski has been injured several times. They did get Vince Wilfolk back, but he and Tommy Kelly aren't getting any younger. New England lost their top corner in Aqib Talib, but countered with signing Darrelle Revis. The Patriots ranked 30th in opponent rushing yards per game and another big body up the middle would help that cause.

Pick: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State


#30 San Francisco 49ers
Needs: CB, WR, C, DL

San Francisco was very good in all aspects last year and almost made it to the Super Bowl for the second time in as many years. They lost two of their top cornerbacks (Rogers/Brown) and starting safety Donte Whitner. The 49ers were able to sign safety Antoine Bethea and cornerback Chris Cook. More defensive help may get them to another Super Bowl in 2014.

Pick: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU


#31 Denver Broncos
Needs: ILB, CB, WR, G

If any team made the biggest push to get to the Super Bowl, it was certainly Denver. They signed big names such as Aqib Talib, TJ Ward, and DeMarcus Ware to add to their defense. They did lose breakout player Eric Decker, but signed Emmanual Sanders to try and replace him. Defense was their biggest weakness in 2013, even those nobody showed up in the Super Bowl. Denver would prefer a cornerback right here, but they have been flying off the board.

Pick: Chris Borland, LB, Wisconsin


#32 Seattle Seahawks
Needs: WR, TE, RT, DL, G

Finally the Super Bowl champions get to select and add to their very well rounded team. Wide receiver is probably the biggest need for them in which they lost top receiver Golden Tate to the Lions. But right now, I don't think it is worth reaching for a wide receiver right now. If one of the ones above fall, then I can certainly see them taking one right here. They need more depth along the defensive line.

Pick: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

As a fellow Panthers fan, I just hope they take a position of need instead of taking it somewhere else.

I agree. They need to replace Ware's presence on that defense.

I dont think its a terrible pick. It is a big need after losing their top corner in Verner. If they did take a QB, it wouldnt be a bad pick either.

Obviously as a Panthers fan, I dont like it LOL. In the turn, it would be a great pick for them and pair him with Mike Glennon.

It is a terrible pick because its not a big need. It would be a big need if they didnt have any good CBs. Jason McCourty who is the #1(not a #2 like Verner was) is a top 10 CB. Coty Sensabaugh who was just drafted 2 years ago and has shown to be a good nickel CB and coaches have praised him in camp as a #2 CB. Also Blidi Wreh-Wilson was just drafted last year in the 3rd round and fits what Horton wants in his CBs as a physical CB. Titans have made a living off turning mid to late round CBs into good players (McCourty, Verner, Finnegan, etc.). Drafting a guy to be our #2 CB is not smart. There's no value in it.

#6 Atlanta Falcons -
Needs: OLB/DE, T, TE, S

The Falcons kind of fall into the same category as the Raiders. While they could take a tight end with Tony G, retiring, but with Mack falling all the way down to the sixth pick its kind of hard to pass on him. Atlanta has been in need of a top notch linebacker since the departure of Curtis Lofton

Pick: Khalil Mack, LB/DE, Buffalo


A++++++++++ on Mack to the Falcons. Also TE is not really an option in the 1st round. Mike Smith has already came out and said the TE position will not be a play maker position like it was with Gonzo here it is going to a more tradition TE style with us running alot more 3 WR sets with Julio, Roddy, and Harry as the go to guys. TE will be more utility position still can make some plays but not the top target like it use to be.

Honestly, I dont see Mack falling all the way to 6th, but hell who knows in the draft. I see it as a possibility tho with what the top 5 teams do.
