  1. Pick No.
    1
    QB
    Central Florida
     
    Tough to pass up a talent like Clowney, but Bortles has the physical tools to develop into a franchise QB.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    DE
    South Carolina
     
    If the Rams don't trade down and take an OT, they'll grab the best available player in Clowney.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    QB
    Texas A&M
     
    Jags will fall in love with Manziel's intangibles and production. He'll put people in seats in Jacksonville and sell jerseys in London.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    OT
    Texas A&M
     
    WR/QB help can come later; the Browns won't pass on a polished OT like Matthews.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    WR
    Clemson
     
    Robinson makes sense, but it would be tough to pass on the top WR in the draft.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Auburn
     
    Robinson's pass blocking isn't fully developed, but he'll boost the run game right away.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    OT
    Michigan
     
    Lewan can play in any scheme and will be a good cornerstone up front.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    OLB
    Buffalo
     
    In need of a LB who can be a pass rush threat, Vikings grab Mack to do just that.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    OT
    Notre Dame
     
    Bills would love if Robinson fell to them, but Martin would also be an instant upgrade for their O-line.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    FS
    Alabama
     
    Evans is a possibility, but their need in the secondary will push them to reach a bit for Clinton-Dix.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    Ex-UCLA DC Lou Spanos is the Titans' LB coach and should lobby hard for Barr, who could be a star at the next level.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    WR
    Texas A&M
     
    Manning gets a huge weapon in Evans, who should be a long-term upgrade over Hakeem Nicks.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    FS
    Louisville
     
    Gilbert could get a look, but Jeff Fisher will opt for the hard-hitting Pryor first.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    CB
    Oklahoma St.
     
    He'll complement Tim Jennings nicely and slide right into Devin Hester's role on returns.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    CB
    Michigan St.
     
    Steelers got a good look at Dennard at his pro day, and that should be all they need to confirm what they saw on tape.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    DT
    Pittsburgh
     
    Some knock his size, but Donald leaves college as the most dominant interior defender since Ndamukong Suh.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    TE
    North Carolina
     
    Ebron gives Joe Flacco a new outlet and helps free up newly signed Steve Smith.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    CB
    Virginia Tech
     
    Fuller's toughness and versatility fit what Rex Ryan needs from a cornerback in this division.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    ILB
    Alabama
     
    Other positions might be more pressing needs, but Mosley fits as a top LB and best player available.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    DE
    Missouri
     
    Not a ton of holes on this defense, but Ealy would be a nice addition to their front-seven depth.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    NT
    Florida St.
     
    B.J. Raji will be a short-term rental as the Packers groom the more athletic Jernigan to clog the middle.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    DE
    Auburn
     
    The fast-rising Ford will be ideal for a team looking to get longer and faster.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    LSU
     
    Beckham's 4.43 speed will stretch defenses and provide an option in the return game.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Ohio St.
     
    A trade down is possible, but Roby has too much upside for the Bengals to pass up on.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    WR
    USC
     
    Chargers strike gold again with a Pac-12 receiver in Lee, who'll be a great fit in this offense.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    QB
    Fresno St.
     
    The Browns like Carr and need to grab him here before other QB-needy teams trade up to get him.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    OLB
    Ohio St.
     
    The speedy LB will be great coming off the edge in a blitz-happy defense.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    WR
    Oregon St.
     
    O-line is a bigger need, but Cooks is the best player available and will be a good replacement for Steve Smith.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    NT
    Notre Dame
     
    Pats need to infuse some youth along the defensive line. Nix has the quickness you look for at the position.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    CB
    TCU
     
    He's a bit undersized but can flat-out cover any receiver you throw at him.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    OG
    Stanford
     
    Yankey would be a perfect Zane Beadles replacement who can pick up the offense quickly.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    An immediate boost at guard, Su'a-Filo could also play tackle in a pinch.
