1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville 6'3 218
The Bucs complete a perfect losing season and get to grab the top QB in the NFL draft. Bridgewater has great pocket presence, a strong arm and is accurate.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars - Marcus Mariota QB 6'4 211
The Jags shock everyone by winning a game in 2013, taking them out of the Bridgewater race but still allowing them to draft another game changer at QB. Mariota comes from a spread option offense but his accuracy, decision making and strong arm shows that he can transition to a pro style offense in time.

3. Atlanta Falcons Jadeveon Clowney DE 6'6 272
The Falcons struggles this year allow them to grab the most talented player in the entire draft. Already possessing elite speed and strength, Clowney can be special with the right motivation.

4. Minnesota Vikings - Anthony Barr OLB 6'4 235
The Viks miss out on Clowney and with no QB worthy of the #4 selection in this draft, they grab Barr. The Falcons need a dynamic pass rusher on defense and this is what Barr is.

5. St. Louis Rams - Jake Matthews OT 6'5 305
The Rams grab a franchise LT to protect Sam Bradford. If the Rams are picking this high again in 2015 they will be looking at a QB.

6. Oakland Raiders Mike Evans - WR 6'5 225
Mike Evans has been a beast this year and has made a hobby out of embarrassing various CBs in the SEC with his leaping ability. His height, weight and strength after the catch will make him the top WR selected.

7. Houston Texans - Marquise Lee WR 6'0 195

Brett Hundley decides to stay in college, so the Texans grab the heir apparent to Andre Johnson. There was a reason why Marquis Lee won the Biletnikoff Award in 2012. A burner who can run routes and has some leaping ability of his own, Lee had 1700 yards receiving in 2012. He's been injured in 2013, but when 100 percent healthy he's one of the best WR's in college and will help Keenum succeed as the starting QB.

8. New York Giants - Taylor Lewan OT 6'8 309
The Giants OL needs better talent to protect Eli. Draft Lewan. Move Beatty over to RT and put Pugh at LG. OL is instantly better.

9. Buffalo Bills - Eric Ebron TE 6'4 245
The first surprise pick of the draft. Eric Ebron is a flat out stud who uses his speed to outrun LBs and his size against CBs/safeties. Doug Marrone becomes enamored with the type of offense he will have with Ebron joining Spiller, Stevie and Woods. With this safety blanket, EJ won't have to run out of the pocket as much (which led to his injury).

10. Philadelphia Eagles - Sammy Watkins WR 6'0 205
Chip Kelly is smiling. The Eagles are not bringing Jeremy Maclin back in 2014 and instead uses the draft to find his replacement. Sammy Watkins is capable of being a true #1 WR and the speed to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers - Cyrus Kouandijio OL

The Steelers has to protect Big Ben, the OL has been hit with numerous injuries (one happening by a fellow teammate) so this pick will help keep Ben upright. Cyrus has untapped potential and can be a franchise LT if coached correctly.

12. Titans - Louis Nix DT
The Titans grab the best DT in the draft and it fills a immediate need for them on defense.

13. Ravens - Ifo Ekpre-Olomu CB
The Ravens lost a lot pieces to their SB team, they need a reliable corner now that Cary Williams is gone.

14. Browns - Tajh Boyd QB 6'1 221
The Browns grab their future QB and move on from the Weeden era. Boyd can drive the ball down the field with accuracy and also has some running ability. Norv will coach him up to make him become a more consistent QB.

15. Rams (From Redskins) - HaHa Clinton-Dix S
While a weapon like Seferian Jenkins is intriguing to give Bradford more weapons, the Rams decide to grab the best safety in this draft to help improve their pass defense.

16. Cardinals - Khalil Mack OLB
17. Panthers - Austin Seferian Jenkins TE
18. Dolphins - Antonio Richardson OT
19. Packers - CJ Mosley LB
20. Jets Cyril Richardson OG
21. Lions - Bradley Roby CB
22. Bears - Stephon Tuitt DE
23. Cowboys - RaShede Hageman DT
24. Chargers - Trent Murphy DE
25. Browns (From Colts) - Jordan Matthews WR
26. Seahawks - Timmy Jernigan DT
27. Patriots - Jason Verrett CB
28. Bengals - Kyle Van Noy OLB
29. Saints - Vic Beasley OLB
30. Chiefs - Derek Carr QB
31. 49ers - Jason Verrett CB
32. Broncos - Louchiez Purifoy CB

HaHa Clinton-Dix or Khalil Mack there for the Eagles. I think we'll bring Maclin back to a 1 year deal. We'll grab a WR in the later rounds or FA. I don't really see us picking one in the first unless the draft board is unfavorable to us for defensive players.

Why do people still think Tajh Boyd is a top 15 pick? I'd be surprised if he was even taken before the third round.

Was Christian Ponder worthy of top 15 picks? How about Jake Locker? EJ Manuel being a 1st round pick?

Tajh Boyd has look bad at times, but he is still worthy of being drafted in the 1st round.

Give the Panthers Richardson in the first, it fits a bigger need for us.

Actually DT isn't an immediate need for the Titans . They have one of the best in football in Jurrell Casey. Nix and Casey would be great together but they have far more needs. Murphy or Mack would be a good pick.

Not the top half of the first round he's not.

4.5-ish speed but looks slower because of his long strides.
