  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    South Carolina
     
    Clowney is the most talented player in this draft class, and I expect Houston to select him if it canít trade out.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    OT
    Auburn
     
    Manziel is a real possibility here, but Robinson would be tough to pass up.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    OLB
    Buffalo
     
    This decision will probably come down to Mack and Watkins. They canít go wrong with either player.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    QB
    Texas A&M
     
    The Browns are desperate for a quarterback, and Manziel appears to be their guy.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    WR
    Clemson
     
    Oakland should race the card up to the podium if Watkins is still available.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Michigan
     
    The Falcons want to get tougher up front. Lewan gets the nod over Matthews because heís a more physical player.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    WR
    Texas A&M
     
    The Bucs could trade out of this pick, but Evans fills a huge void on their roster.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    ILB
    Alabama
     
    Bridgewater is a legitimate option here, but Mosley is one of the cleaner prospects in the draft and will have an immediate impact.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    OT
    Texas A&M
     
    Matthews would team up with Cordy Glenn to give the Bills an outstanding set of young offensive tackles.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    CB
    Oklahoma St.
     
    Eric Ebron would be tempting here, but the Lions need to upgrade their secondary.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    CB
    Virginia Tech
     
    The Titans will target a QB in the middle rounds. Fuller is polished and fills the void left by Alterraun Vernerís departure.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    OT
    Notre Dame
     
    Martinís stock has risen throughout the spring. He is capable of playing all five spots on the line.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    FS
    Louisville
     
    Pryor rates slightly higher than Clinton-Dix and gets the nod here, but I wouldnít rule out a trade with this pick.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    DT
    Pittsburgh
     
    Donald is the most dynamic interior defender in the draft class.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    CB
    Michigan St.
     
    The Steelers would be bypassing several outstanding WRs, but they can circle back for one in a later round.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    The Cowboys need to address their pass rush, and Barr brings plenty of production and upside.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    TE
    North Carolina
     
    Clinton-Dix would fill a pressing need, but Ebron is the bigger talent.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    WR
    LSU
     
    Beckham would team with Eric Decker to give Geno Smith (or Michael Vick) a talented WR duo.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    OLB
    Ohio St.
     
    With no OT worthy of this spot, the Dolphins take the explosive Ohio State linebacker.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    QB
    Central Florida
     
    This is ideal for both Bortles and the Cards. He can sit behind Carson Palmer for a year before taking over.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    TE
    Washington
     
    Seferian-Jenkins would provide Aaron Rodgers with an enormous red-zone target.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    FS
    Alabama
     
    The Eagles need more playmakers in their secondary and Clinton-Dix would be an ideal fit.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    Oregon St.
     
    Cooks has the speed Andy Reid is looking for at the wide receiver spot.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Ohio St.
     
    Roby comes with some baggage, but heís as physically gifted as any CB in the draft.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    CB
    TCU
     
    Louis Nix is an option here, but the need to upgrade the CB position is tough to ignore.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    WR
    USC
     
    Lee and Manziel would provide a nice 1-2 punch for the Browns offense.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    There is a lot of buzz around the league that Martin is highly coveted by the Saints.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    OT
    Virginia
     
    The Panthers need help at WR and OT. They go tackle with this spot and address WR in following rounds.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    DT
    Minnesota
     
    Hagemen is inconsistent on tape, but he has the tools to be a Pro Bowl player.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    I doubt the 49ers will be selecting right here. I expect them to trade up for a CB or WR.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    OT
    Nevada
     
    Bitonio is highly thought of in personnel circles. He plays with good awareness, toughness and balance.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    Suía-Filo would be a big upgrade at guard for the Super Bowl champs.
