First-round mock drafts are enjoyable, but they only tell 1/7 of the story. For the second straight year, NFL.com is presenting a complete seven-round mock draft, with picks from No. 1 all the way to Mr. Irrelevant at No. 254. Is this exactly how things will unfold Thursday through Saturday at Radio City Music Hall in New York? Probably not. But it's an interesting excercise nonetheless. Let's get to it!
6. Cleveland Browns: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama. The Browns could be targeting Jordan or LSU's Barkevious Mingo, but a trade down might be the top priority. Regardless, Milliner fits Cleveland's style very well.
7. Arizona Cardinals: Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU. With Darnell Dockett on the decline, the Cardinals could groom Ansah as his replacement. The team did very well with another inexperienced prospect in Calais Campbell.
12. Miami Dolphins: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina. As of publishing, the Dolphins had not acquired Branden Albert. Cooper cannot play on the edge, but he would solidify one of the interior positions.
13. New York Jets: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia. Many might expect the Jets to "replace" Darrelle Revis with this selection, but the team fared pretty well with Antonio Cromartie as its top corner. Most of all, Gang Green needs to score touchdowns, and Austin can do that in a variety of ways.
14. Carolina Panthers: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas. Vaccaro would match up very well against Jimmy Graham and Tony Gonzalez in the NFC South, and can also lock down quicker slot targets. He was one of the few to handle Tavon Austin in Texas' loss to West Virginia.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State. The former receiver loves to aggressively jam his opposition at the line of scrimmage, but shows enough comfort to turn and locate the football when trailing.
18. Dallas Cowboys: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri. The nimble mover could be selected earlier than this, but Richardson would impact the Cowboys' plans as a 3-technique defensive tackle in the team's new four-man front.
19. New York Giants: Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State. Despite undergoing knee surgery less than five months ago, Carradine is one of the most talented edge rushers in this class and could produce as early as this season.
20. Chicago Bears: Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State. It might seem early, but Taylor is a versatile corner able to play in zone or man situations. He consistently competes at the catch point after pressing receivers at the line.
21. Cincinnati Bengals: John Cyprien, S, Florida International. The Bengals usually prefer prospects from larger schools, so Eric Reid or Matt Elam could be targeted here, but Cyprien is more talented than both.
24. Indianapolis Colts: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA. Few were more impressive than Jones during Senior Bowl week, and the versatile defensive lineman was impressive in college, as well. His ability to win inside and out will be coveted.
25. Minnesota Vikings: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee. A bit of a surprise, but there's a legitimate chance Hunter is selected before Cordarrelle Patterson and Keenan Allen. Hunter's weaknesses aren't physical, just lapses in concentration that lead to drops.
26. Green Bay Packers: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame. The Packers obviously could trade down with a team needing a quarterback, but some consider Eifert the top skill-position player in this class. His ability to catch the ball at its highest point is outstanding.
27. Houston Texans: Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State. I don't agree with Watson being a first-round pick, but he shows more athleticism on the field than in drills and teams appear to be intrigued by his upside.
28. Denver Broncos: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina. The UNC product is being pegged as a 3-technique defensive tackle due to his ability to get upfield quickly. I like how he works beyond the line of scrimmage, but many of those disruptions started with him lining up as a 0- or 1-technique.
29. New England Patriots: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State. The Patriots spent two first-round picks on the defensive side of the ball last year, but Werner would add even more pass rush across from Chandler Jones.
30. Atlanta Falcons: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington. Trufant's footwork is outstanding, but his lack of a physical mentality could hurt when he's asked to attack runners in the open field or deal with bigger targets. Asante Samuel thinks otherwise.
31. San Francisco 49ers: Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama. When Justin Smith was sidelined, the 49ers' defense changed for the worse. Williams has tremendous strength to occupy blockers and could move inside in some situations.
32. Baltimore Ravens: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State. Some will call Brown small for the position. I won't, and instead think Brown is one of the top talents in this entire class. He has speed to work to the sideline and aggression to take on and beat blockers.
33. Jaguars: Matt Barkley, QB, USC. In this situation, the Jags have their choice of the next three quarterbacks. Teams will like how Barkley works pre-snap and can accurately deliver the football, but I question if he can keep it together once out of rhythm.
34. 49ers: D.J. Swearinger, S, South Carolina. This guy is awesome. Swearinger filled a variety of roles at South Carolina, including lining up in the box and playing as a single-high safety. In fact, he held his own at cornerback against Tennessee, as well.
35. Eagles: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia. After taking a step back, a lot of Smith's positive traits fit what Chip Kelly wants in the position. In this scenario, he wouldn't have to start during his rookie year.
38. Cardinals: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff. After missing out on the top offensive tackles in Round 1, the Cardinals turn to the high-upside Armstead, who is further along in his development than many think.
40. Titans: Dallas Thomas, OL, Tennessee. Thomas appears to be lost in the shuffle, but he has great tape at left tackle and guard. His athletic lower body allows him to mirror and redirect pass rushers.
41. Bills: Kevin Minter, LB, LSU. Minter lack exceptional sideline speed, but he knifes through traffic to make plays near the line of scrimmage or stands up lead blockers and halts the offense's momentum.
42. Dolphins: D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston. Hayden could be selected much higher than this. The corner who overcame a unique injury has great closing speed and locates the football to disrupt at the catch point.
44. Panthers: Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State. Although he frequently has been compared to Mike Wallace, Wheaton's routes and catch radius are much more advanced than Wallace's were coming out of Ole Miss.
45. Chargers: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, UConn. Wreh-Wilson is left out of the discussion when talking about inexperienced players, but thanks to his length and closing speed, there's a lot of upside to his game.
46. Rams: Matt Elam, S, Florida. Elam puts together a great highlight reel. He would step into the strong safety role for the Rams. However, his lack of height is a question when matching up with larger targets.
47. Cowboys: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee. There are a lot of questions about Patterson's routes and mental capacity. The answer is simple: Get the ball in his hands on screens, slants, drags and vertical routes.
48. Steelers: Margus Hunt, DE, SMU. Teams likely are very intrigued by Hunt's upside, and he would eventually step into Brett Keisel's role for the Steelers. He needs to be taught how to use leverage to his advantage.
49. Giants: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State. Some suggest Slay has more upside than his teammate Banks, and the Giants could use his skills after a number of injuries at the position over the past few seasons.
50. Bears: Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia. Many project Ogletree to the inside linebacker spot. I think he's purely a weakside defender behind a four-man front, but can be a very good one thanks to great closing speed.
52. Vikings: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State. There are tremendous flashes from multiple spots when watching Hankins' tape. However, he disappears for long stretches of games. Regardless, in a minimized role early in his career, Hankins can be very effective.
54. Dolphins: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M. Moore is a conundrum, in that he has admitted to a poor work ethic off the field while showcasing an outstanding motor on it. He can win in a secondary pass-rushing role.
57. Texans: Keenan Allen, WR, California. Thanks to a slower 40 time and prolonged recovery process, Allen could wind up going late in the second round. He wins with burst in and out of breaks and reliable hands at the catch point.
58. Broncos: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama. John Fox always has had a soft spot for bruising backs who tend to win on first contact. Lacy is athletic for a big runner and always looks to pick up the extra yard.
59. Patriots: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech. There are some elements of Reggie Wayne and Brandon Lloyd to Patton's game, since he wins by creating a sliver of separation at the top of his routes. His hands are incredibly reliable.
61. 49ers: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford. A fluid mover who lacks burst in routes, Ertz likely will be used as a matchup receiver after lining up against linebackers, corners and safeties during his time in college. His blocking is subpar.
63. Chiefs: Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon.
64. Jags: Kyle Long, OG, Oregon.
65. Lions: Robert Alford, CB, Southeastern Louisiana.
66. Raiders: Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern.
