  1. Pick No.
    1
    QB
    Central Florida
     
    I might be only one, but I think Bill O'Brien and Texans would regret not taking a QB.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    OT
    Texas A&M
     
    Rams in prime position to trade down. If they don't, Jeff Fisher knows all about the Matthews family.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    DE
    South Carolina
     
    The Jags certainly would not mind if this guy fell to No. 3. He would fill a huge need.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    WR
    Clemson
     
    Watkins-Josh Gordon duo at WR would strike fear into hearts of opposing defensive coordinators.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    QB
    Texas A&M
     
    The Raiders need a quarterback, and Johnny Football with that fan base certainly would be entertaining.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Auburn
     
    The Falcons -- and Matt Ryan, especially -- need to find a left tackle who can block.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    WR
    Texas A&M
     
    The Bucs need a wide receiver, and Evans would pair nicely with fellow "big receiver" Vincent Jackson.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    QB
    Louisville
     
    Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder? Please.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    OLB
    Buffalo
     
    Mack, a Florida kid, would get to stay in Buffalo. And he would be getting paid now.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    CB
    Oklahoma St.
     
    Most analysts say Gilbert is best corner in draft. If Lions agree, they take him because they need a good CB.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    The Titans could use a pass-rushing outside linebacker, and Barr would fill that need.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    OT
    Michigan
     
    The Giants' O-line too often resembled a subway turnstile in 2013, and Lewan should help in that regard.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    FS
    Alabama
     
    Clinton-Dix looks to be a good fit. Picking a WR would be tempting, though.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    NT
    Florida St.
     
    The Bears signed two likely starting DEs in free agency and should go the draft route to shore up weak interior.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    CB
    Michigan St.
     
    Dennard is most physical corner in draft, meaning he should fit in with Steelers, who have aging CBs.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    DT
    Pittsburgh
     
    Rod Marinelli tutored some big-time DTs when he was with the Bucs. Here's his next big-time DT.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    FS
    Louisville
     
    Pairing Pryor with Matt Elam? The Ravens would have some big hitters at safety, that's for sure.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    TE
    North Carolina
     
    The Jets need a WR, too, but Ebron is best TE in draft. And, man, the tabloid media would love the quotable Ebron.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    OT
    Notre Dame
     
    Miami is in the midst of rebuilding its O-line and Martin could start at LT, RT or either guard spot -- and with a minimum of fuss.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    CB
    Virginia Tech
     
    Pairing Fuller with Patrick Peterson potentially would give the Cardinals one of the best CB duos in league.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    ILB
    Alabama
     
    The Packers could use a thumper at inside 'backer in their 3-4. He's the best ILB in this draft.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    WR
    LSU
     
    The Eagles need a playmaker on the outside to replace DeSean Jackson; if this guy is there, Chip Kelly should weep with joy.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    USC
     
    The Chiefs are another team looking for WR help. Lee had a great 2012 but was uneven in 2013.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    OLB
    Ohio St.
     
    Shazier has speed to burn and could be a special playmaker in the Bengals' aggressive scheme.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    NT
    Notre Dame
     
    The Chargers need a big, physical nose man, and the affable Nix would fit nicely.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    QB
    Fresno St.
     
    The Browns get their quarterback. His learning curve would be eased by a Gordon-Watkins tandem at WR.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    DE
    Missouri
     
    The Saints need a pass-rushing end, and he's the second-best of those in this draft. He's also OK vs. the run.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    WR
    Oregon St.
     
    The Panthers have a huge need at WR. Cooks has potential to quickly develop into a No. 1 receiver.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    DE
    Auburn
     
    Ford is a one-trick pony, but that one trick is valuable: He knows how to rush the passer.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    CB
    TCU
     
    The 49ers let Carlos Rogers go in free agency, and Verrett can slide right into Mr. Rogers' old neighborhood. (Hey, no groaning over that line.)
  31. Pick No.
    31
    A CB or WR would be tempting, but Su'a-Filo is best true guard in draft and would end any concerns about position.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    DT
    Minnesota
     
    He's a boom-or-bust guy, but when you're the champs, you can afford to take risk on guy who could become star.
