  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    South Carolina
    He'll be the first pick in the draft whether it's Houston making the selection or a team that traded into this slot.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    OT
    Auburn
    Rams secure top-rated OT, although Johnny Manziel might be too much for them to resist here.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    WR
    Clemson
    Most dynamic playmaker in the draft. Khalil Mack will get heavy consideration, as well.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    QB
    Texas A&M
    Keep hearing the Browns want their QB at pick No. 26, but Johnny Football is a splash pick that won't wait.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    OLB
    Buffalo
    Raiders need an impact player with this pick, and this young man is it.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Michigan
    Falcons seeking toughness, and they get it with this Michigan Man. But, Jake Matthews is a good alternative.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    WR
    Texas A&M
    Pairs with WR Vincent Jackson to challenge the NFC South secondaries. OT a strong possibility here, too.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    ILB
    Alabama
    Mosley is one of the top 10 players in the draft. Vikes pass on QB (Teddy Bridgewater?) here to build defense.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    TE
    North Carolina
    Bills need to help young QB EJ Manuel, and the best TE in the draft will provide.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    CB
    Oklahoma St.
    Lions need help in the secondary, and Gilbert's size will come in handy against divisional rivals.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    CB
    Virginia Tech
    Titans have a few highly rated CBs to choose from. Hearing they really like this former Hokie.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    OT
    Texas A&M
    Giants can't believe their luck. They land a "plug and play" OT to help QB Eli Manning.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    FS
    Louisville
    Had thought safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix would be the pick here, but have been convinced that Rams like the "Louisville Slugger" better.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    DT
    Pittsburgh
    Draft board plays out perfectly for Bears, who get the guy they wanted.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    WR
    LSU
    Could be a CB here, but Steelers "throw" Big Ben a speedy target.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OLB
    UCLA
    He's not DeMarcus Ware (yet), but Cowboys are excited about his potential.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    FS
    Alabama
    Will pair with last year's first-round pick, Matt Elam to give Baltimore a formidable last line of defense.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    WR
    Oregon St.
    Speed needed to help free up Eric Decker underneath. Cooks has plenty to spare.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    OT
    Notre Dame
    Could play OT, G, or even C. He fills a screaming OL need.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    QB
    Central Florida
    Carson Palmer, meet -- and tutor -- your eventual replacement. No pressure for the rookie to start right away bodes well.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    OLB
    Ohio St.
    Packers think TE, but defense gets speedy, versatile defender that can be a playmaker.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    CB
    Michigan St.
    Thrives on press-man coverage, and is supremely confident in his abilities.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    USC
    The Chiefs welcome this complement to WR Dwayne Bowe.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Ohio St.
    Bengals want a playmaking corner, and they like Ohio State players.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    NT
    Notre Dame
    Chargers get bigger, and younger, up front on defense.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    OT
    Alabama
    Browns get a tackle to pair with Joe Thomas and help Johnny Football acclimate.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    CB
    Nebraska
    Long, rangy CB that is needed to match up with big WRs of division rivals Atlanta and Tampa Bay.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    OT
    Virginia
    WR is the popular need pick here, but with retirement of LT Jordan Gross, this big man assumes "Cam duty".
  29. Pick No.
    29
    DT
    Minnesota
    His flash plays really stand out, and Pats tend to bring out best in their players.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    DE
    Notre Dame
    Has the size and length to be a force on the D-line. Plus, he can learn from All-Pro Justin Smith.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    OT
    Nevada
    Intelligent technician who has played well against good pass rushers. Exactly what the Broncos need.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    The best true guard in the draft, Su'a Filo fits exactly what the reigning Super Bowl champs like to do on offense -- be physical.
