  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    South Carolina
     
    Clowney is the premier talent in this draft class and I will be surprised if he isn't the top pick.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    OT
    Auburn
     
    I think the Rams will trade out of this spot, but if they are stuck then Robinson would provide a physical element to their offensive line.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    QB
    Texas A&M
     
    Manziel's playmaking ability would fit nicely in Jedd Fisch's offense.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    WR
    Clemson
     
    The Browns wait on a quarterback and nab the top pass catcher in the draft to pair with Josh Gordon.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    OLB
    Buffalo
     
    The Raiders solved a lot of needs in free agency, which will free them up to take the best available player.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Texas A&M
     
    Protecting Matt Ryan gets the nod over upgrading the pass rush.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    WR
    Texas A&M
     
    Following the Mike Williams trade, the Bucs are very thin at receiver.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    QB
    Central Florida
     
    Bortles showed massive improvement in his footwork during his pro day and that has teams excited.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    ILB
    Alabama
     
    Mosley and Kiko Alonso would form one of the top young linebacker duos in the league.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    OT
    Michigan
     
    I could see the Lions grabbing a cornerback or safety, but protecting Matthew Stafford is always a top priority.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    CB
    Oklahoma St.
     
    The Titans lost Alterraun Verner in free agency and Gilbert would be a nice fit in Ray Horton's scheme.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    TE
    North Carolina
     
    Ebron would be a perfect compliment to Victor Cruz and hopefully help Eli Manning return to form.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    FS
    Alabama
     
    Clinton-Dix would put up big numbers roaming the middle of the field in this defense.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    DT
    Pittsburgh
     
    Donald is undersized, but he has rare explosiveness and instincts for the position.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    CB
    Ohio St.
     
    Roby had an up-and-down season, but he has as much upside as any cornerback in the draft.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    The Cowboys are desperate for edge rushers and Barr would be an excellent value at this spot.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    FS
    Louisville
     
    The Ravens could look at the receiver position here, but safety is a higher priority.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    WR
    LSU
     
    Beckham is a complete receiver and he is also one of the top returners in the draft.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    OT
    Notre Dame
     
    I keep trying to come up with another player for the Dolphins, but I can't see them passing on a clean player like Martin.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    QB
    Fresno St.
     
    This might be a bit of a surprise choice, but Carr has the skill set to fit nicely in Bruce Arians' offense.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    TE
    Washington
     
    Seferian-Jenkins needs more polish, but his combination of size, catch radius and high-point skills will make him an immediate impact player in the red zone.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    WR
    Florida St.
     
    The Eagles want to get bigger on the outside and Benjamin fits that description.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    Oregon St.
     
    Andy Reid's offense is at its best when he has a vertical threat in the passing game.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    NT
    Florida St.
     
    The Bengals have a loaded roster, which will allow them to take the top available talent.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    CB
    Virginia Tech
     
    Marqise Lee would be tempting here, but the Chargers need to upgrade their secondary.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    QB
    Louisville
     
    I wouldn't be shocked if the Browns chose Jimmy Garoppolo with this pick (there's a lot of chatter connecting the two), but I'll stick with Bridgewater right now.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    WR
    USC
     
    Lee is too good to pass up at this point in the draft.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    WR
    Fresno St.
     
    The Panthers are desperate for help at wideout and Adams is a smooth route runner that can also stretch the field.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    DT
    Minnesota
     
    Tommy Kelly and Vince Wilfork are getting up in age, and Hagemen would add some youth and athleticism to the Patriots' front.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    CB
    Michigan St.
     
    Dennard is a very physical player and he would fill an important need for the 49ers.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    OLB
    Ohio St.
     
    Keep an eye on Nevada guard Joel Bitonio with this pick, but Shazier's athleticism would be tough to pass up.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    Su'a-Filo loves to get after defenders in the run game, and he'd fit nicely in Seattle's ground and pound offense.
