1 Houston
Jadeveon Clowney
    South Carolina
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
266
Alternate Pick #1
Khalil Mack
Alternate Pick #2
Johnny Manziel
No surprise here, the #1 prospect in this year's draft goes #1. After blazing a 4.53 forty, leaping a tall building (well, at least 37.5") in a single bound and recording a standing broad jump of 10'4", no one can doubt the explosion that this young man exhibited game after game for the Gamecocks. Houston's team defense ranked 28th in the league, tied for 29th with only 32 sacks, and ProFootballFocus gave them a -44.4 grade in pass coverage (due largely to the lack of QB pressure). Value at a position of need!
Grade: A+
2 St Louis
Greg Robinson
    Auburn
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
332
Alternate Pick #1
Sammy Watkins
Alternate Pick #2
Mike Evans
The Rams add a giant of an offensive lineman who is as mentally tough as he is physically tough. Will need some time to develop better pass-blocking skills. However, lining up along with Jake Long, St. Louis is putting together a robust front line for whatever QB ends up taking snaps. Watch This.
Grade:A+
3 Jacksonville
Blake Bortles
    UCF
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -4
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
232
Alternate Pick #1
Sammy Watkins
Alternate Pick #2
Khalil Mack
After all of the mocks, radio shows and TV Broadcasts, the consensus was that Jacksonville wouldn't take a QB with the #3 pick; well surprise, surprise. Hereeeeeee's Blake . . .Jacksonville has been searching for a franchise QB for a number of years so they decided to take a shot on the home-state guy Blake Bortles. Bortles fits the Dave Caldwell profile; a big, strong, sturdy guy that wins from the pocket. Now Caldwell must surround him with a solid line and some big-play weapons.
Grade: B-
4 Buffalo
Sammy Watkins
    Clemson
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Jake Matthews
Alternate Pick #2
Mike Evans
"At the wide receiver position, 'big wins' means a guy that plays big," Whaley told Buffalobills.com last week. "He may be six foot, but if he continues to catch the ball away from his body and has long arms, then he'll play like a 6-4 or 6-5 guy. ....It's not only just the physical measurements of being big, but being able to play big on the field." Watkins is the King of Screens, so watch this trade-up to change the Bills' offense and provide another weapon for EJ. Risk, reward. Bills get their target.
Grade: A
5 Oakland
Khalil Mack
    Buffalo
    OLB43
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
251
Alternate Pick #1
Mike Evans
Alternate Pick #2
Aaron Donald
For weeks, we had Mack to Oakland when he was available at the spot. Pairing the standout out of Buffalo with last year's draft gem in Sio Moore is a brilliant move, making the Raiders a very strong defensive team that should have no problem getting to the quarterback. An argument can be made that Mike Evans was a bigger need here, but this is a smart pick. Oakland needed an immediate-impact player, and they got one.
Grade: A-
6 Atlanta
Jake Matthews
    Texas A&M
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
308
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Anthony Barr
Both Clowney and Mack are gone . . . although in need of a pass rush off the edge, Dimitroff did not reach. Jake Matthews is not a bad consolation prize when your franchise QB was sacked 40 times and starting OT Lamar Holmes allowed 10 of them. Pro Football Focus graded the Falcons' OL equally inept at both running and pass protection, a negative 41 score for each category. Matthews is probably the most NFL ready to start OL prospect in this year's draft . . . and he most likely will for the Falcons.
Grade: A
7 Tampa Bay
Mike Evans
    Texas A&M
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
225
Alternate Pick #1
Johnny Manziel
Alternate Pick #2
Aaron Donald
Vincent Jackson AND Mike Evans? Stop it ! Just stop it. Pretty solid receiving pair, no? But who will be tossing them the rock? When the Bucs decide who that will eventually be, he will have some excellent weapons to target. Evans is an extremely smart football player and knows the route tree well. Strong hands and good quickness will serve only to enhance his physicality when battling for the ball. BTW, if Glennon is the starter, the Bucs have 3/5th of an NBA-level starting five!
Grade: A
8 Cleveland
Justin Gilbert
    Oklahoma State
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
202
Alternate Pick #1
Johnny Manziel
Alternate Pick #2
Darqueze Dennard
The Browns traded away the fourth pick to Buffalo for the ninth pick, plus the Bills' 2015 RD1, and RD4 picks. Not done dealing, Browns GM Ray Farmer moves up one spot (eighth) to select CB Justin Gilbert, this draft's consensus top CB. Could the Browns have stayed at ninth, and still bagged Gilbert? We'll never know, but Joe Haden has a new, scary good bookend.
Grade: B-



9 Minnesota
Anthony Barr
    UCLA
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
255
Alternate Pick #1
Johnny Manziel
Alternate Pick #2
Darqueze Dennard
After I picked up on a few of the hints that "Tricky" Rick Spielman has dropped lately, like "We're looking for a disruptive player in the Front 7" and "There are a few players at the top of our board that you guys (mock drafters) have missed", I officially placed a Grab on Anthony Barr. It was a shocker at the time, but this is the exact type of player that should thrive under the tutelage of Mike Zimmer. He's raw, but he has the potential to be an impact player for years to come. Add in a 5th Round pick and this is a great pick.
Grade: A
10 Detroit
Eric Ebron
    North Carolina
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
250
Alternate Pick #1
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix
Alternate Pick #2
Darqueze Dennard
Erik Ebron had been rumored to Detroit, but, like so many rumors, this one wasn't given much credence. Lions Offensive Coordinator Joe Lombardi must view Ebron as the Jimmy Graham-esque component that will make the offense purr. The Lions, who were expected to go with defense by most, get the draft's top Tight End. Let's hope that Ebron eclipses TE Brandon Pettigrew as the top receiving option.
Grade: B
11 Tennessee
Taylor Lewan
    Michigan
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
309
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Johnny Manziel
Although they just singed Michael Oher this offseason, Tennessee still needs help at the tackle position. Oher graded out as the 68th best tackle, according to Pro Football Focus, and David Stewart and Michael Roos nearing the end of their careers. With players like Barr and Gilbert off the board, Tennessee goes best player available, and fills a need moving forward.
Grade: A
12 NY Giants
Odell Beckham Jr.
    LSU
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -4
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
198
Alternate Pick #1
Aaron Donald
Alternate Pick #2
Timmy Jernigan
The New York Giants pull the carpet out from underneath the Jets again by grabbing LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. The buzz all during the pre-draft process was that the Giants were going to take Aaron Donald or Zach Martin, but in the end they decided to replace Hakeem Nicks with a faster version of him. Beckham is a good route runner with good speed and decent return ability. He's not exceptional in any one area, but should be a versatile, productive NFL WR.
Grade: B-
13 St Louis
Aaron Donald
    Pittsburgh
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
285
Alternate Pick #1
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix
Alternate Pick #2
Brandin Cooks
In a division that is already sporting some nasty defenses, the Rams continue to build their own brand of nasty. Adding the versatility that Aaron Donald brings to the frontline with Langford and Brockers (not to mention Long and Quinn crashing in from the edges) will not only increase the nastiness, but also the immense depth that it provides. "The Don" will help to create disruptions all along the opposing offensive line, and that is really where he will help the Rams' defense the most.
Grade: A
14 Chicago
Kyle Fuller
    Virginia Tech
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
190
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
C.J. Mosley
The Bears' secondary struggled mightily last year. Though they ended up in the middle of the pack with 233 yards/game allowed, they sat in the bottom third of the league with 7.7 YPC allowed. The starting CBs on the roster are both on the wrong side of 30, so this pick makes a lot of sense from a need perspective. From a value standpoint, this is about right for where Fuller was expected to go and scheme-wise, Fuller is a much better fit for the Bears than a guy like Justin Gilbert. All-around, a very solid pick.
Grade: B+
15 Pittsburgh
Ryan Shazier
    Ohio State
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -17
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
237
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Jason Verrett
The Steelers look past needs at CB and D-line to go more or less BPA, picking up an incredibly athletic inside linebacker to pair with Lawrence Timmons. Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau maintains a close relationship with his alma mater and surely has been getting an earful over the last 2 years as the fleet-footed Shazier racked up 258 tackles. Essential to today's NFL, Shazier is equally gifted in coverage, against the run, and rushing the passer.
Grade: B+
16 Dallas
Zack Martin
    Notre Dame
    OG
    Reach/Value:     -4
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
308
Alternate Pick #1
Timmy Jernigan
Alternate Pick #2
C.J. Mosley
While most of this draft should concentrate on defensive needs, "Romo Friendly" is still pertinent and 1 more stud on the OL will benefit that cause. Zack Martin can learn the NFL game inside at OG in 2014 and become a potential replacement for Doug Free (who is a Free Agent in 2015) at ROT. Not your typical "Notre Dame OL"; footwork is extremely good, keeps his feet under him, plays with his butt low to accentuate his power on blocking technique, as illustrated against Stanford.
Grade: A
