Here it is:

Pick Team Selection Analyst Comment
1 Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina Josh He is STILL the best player available, and should be a lock for the number one pick.
2 St. Louis Rams (via WSH) Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn Mike The Rams can't find the value they want (no trades) so they go with the top guy remaining on their board.
3 Jacksonville Jaguars Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville Josh Why does a guy drop an entire round because of a pro day? Come on. Jags get their guy.
4 Cleveland Browns Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson Mike The Browns start off their third regime in the last three years with a great playmaker to put opposition the awesome Josh Gordon.
5 Oakland Raiders Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo Josh Mack can start at five positions, and has the potential to be a pro bowler at three of them. Great versatile player for the Raiders at five.
6 Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M Mike The Falcons need a new left tackle and Matthews may be the most NFL-ready player in the draft.
7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M Josh Josh McCown threw to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Now he has Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans
8 Minnesota Vikings Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St. Mike New Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer loves defensive backs and Minnesota could stand to add a few, despite addressing the position in the last two drafts.
9 Buffalo Bills Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan Josh Lewan's potential is worth the Bills taking a shot on him in the top 10. Protecting Manuel is top priority.
10 Detroit Lions Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina Mike Ebron apparently thinks he is going to Detroit and it's hard to argue that he wouldn't make an impact despite Brandon Pettigrew being on the roster.
11 Tennessee Titans Jason Verrett, CB, TCU Josh Verrett is a better version of what the Titans just lost in free agency in Alterraun Verner.
12 New York Giants Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh Mike The Giants lost Linval Joseph in free agency and Cullen Jenkins is getting up there in age, so they go for the best defensive tackle in the class.
13 St. Louis Rams Hasean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama Josh The Rams fill their two biggest needs with two of the best players in the draft.
14 Chicago Bears Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU Mike The Rams stole Clinton-Dix from Chicago, so they address another need with Henry Melton's replacement.
15 Pittsburgh Steelers C.J. Mosely, ILB, Alabama Josh The Steelers can do anything they want with Mosley, and being the best cover linebacker in the draft is just added value to his innate ability to be around the ball.
16 Dallas Cowboys Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA Mike The Tampa 2 of the Cowboys needs some athletic linebackers and it is hard to get more athletic than Barr.
17 Baltimore Ravens Zach Martin, OL, Notre Dame Josh Martin becomes the starter at right tackle, and protects Flacco's strong side for years to come.
18 New York Jets Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State Mike New York failed with Santonio Holmes but could make up for his loss and shortcomings by drafting a younger version of the fomer first round pick.
19 Miami Dolphins Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia Josh Moses is one of the most underrated players in this draft, he doesn't make it look pretty but gets the job done. Has experience at right tackle as well.
20 Arizona Cardinals Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M Mike The Cardinals were torn between Blake Bortles and Manziel here, but went with the mobile talent that Bruce Arians can mold.
21 Green Bay Packers Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois Josh Jimmie Ward can do anything a safety is asked to do. Cover, tackle, play centerfield. This allows the Packers to do more things as a defense.
22 Philadelphia Eagles Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU Mike It came down to C.J. Mosley, Kyle Fuller and Odell Beckham, so the Eagles went for their most immediate need.
23 Kansas City Chiefs Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville Josh The Chiefs defense gets stronger, and with the talent on that side of the ball, it allows Pryor to roam freely and do what he does best, hit.
24 Cincinnati Bengals Blake Bortles, QB, UCF Mike BAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like the Bengals just got some leverage in negotiations with Andy Dalton and perhaps his possible successor.
25 San Diego Chargers Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech Josh The Chargers need help in the secondary, and Fuller is the BPA as a need. Perfect fit for both teams.
26 Cleveland Browns (via IND) Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State Mike It may be a smokescreen but the Browns have shown a ton of interest in Carr and with the top 3 passers off the board, this makes sense.
27 New Orleans Saints Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn Josh Rob Ryan will use Ford to the best of his ability, as a pass rusher. Ford struggles against the run, but that is not what he is being paid to do.
28 Carolina Panthers Marqise Lee, WR, USC Mike The Panthers seriously need help at wide receiver and with Lee somehow still on the board, they almost have to take him.
29 New England Patriots Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame Josh If anyone fits perfectly in New England, it is Nix. He can play three positions on the defensive line, and when he is good, he is great.
30 San Francisco 49ers Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State Mike Shazier is a Harbaugh guy in that he can mold him into whatever he wants and get something out of him.
31 Denver Broncos Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State Josh Gilbert can replace Rodgers-Cromartie right away and give the Broncos two very good cover corners with Talib on the other side.
32 Seattle Seahawks Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech Mike The Seahawks could use more playmakers on offense and Amaro can lineup anywhere.
33 Houston Texans Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State Josh The Texans need help in the secondary, and Roby is there for the picking at 33.
34 Washington Redskins RaShede Hageman, NT, Minnesota Mike The Redskins are risk takers and while Hageman is a boom or bust prospect, he has the size and ability to be special.
35 Cleveland Browns Cyrus Kouandjio, OL, Alabama Josh The Browns can afford a risk on Kouandjio's knee if he falls this far. If their doctors pass on him, he could be a starter right away.
36 Oakland Raiders Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State Mike Regardless of the quarterback, he needs someone to throw to and the Raiders are lacking at wide receiver.
37 Atlanta Falcons Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame Josh Niklas can help in the run game, the passing game, the red zone, everything. Great value pick for the Falcons here.
38 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA Mike The Buccaneers still don't know what will happen with Carl Nicks' toe and Davin Joseph is gone, so they need insurance.
39 Jacksonville Jaguars Demarcus Lawerence, DE/OLB, Boise State Josh The Jags need guys who can get to the quarterback, Lawrence is the best pass rusher left at this point.
40 Minnesota Vikings Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU Mike The Vikings are looking for a quarterback of the future and Mettenberger fits Norv Turner's "big play" interests.
41 Buffalo Bills Terrence Brooks, S, Florida State Josh While Brooks is still relatively raw, he is the best safety left on the board, and will be an instant starter in Buffalo
42 Tennessee Titans Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri Mike Ray Horton will get an interesting piece to move around his defense and Ealy will have the ability to show he can be productive anywhere.
43 New York Giants Joel Bitonio, OL, Nevada Josh Bitonio has been given a lot of press of late, and some think he can be an elite guard right away and play tackle if need be as well. Giants need to protect Eli.
44 St. Louis Rams Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State Mike The Rams have tried to add more weapons and they haven't really worked out, so going back to well may be the only solution.
45 Detroit Lions Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood Josh The Lions passed on some good cornerback talent in the first, but get a potential number one corner in the second in Desir.
46 Pittsburgh Steelers Kyle Van Noy, ILB, BYU Mike The versatie linebacker could come in and fill the void at both inside and outside linebacker.
47 Dallas Cowboys Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt Josh The Cowboys now have the best receiving corps in the division, by far. Dez and Matthews on the outside with Terrence Williams in the slot could be lethal.
48 Baltimore Ravens Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame Mike WIth Arthur Jones headed elsewhere, the Ravens fill his void with Tuitt.
49 New York Jets Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State Josh The Jets add two bonafide playmakers in Cooks and Benjamin in the first two rounds. Geno Smith is the happiest man in New York (Jersey).
50 Miami Dolphins Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State Mike The Dolphins may look to deal Dion Jordan and even if they don't, adding Crichton creates a successor for aging Cam Wake.
51 Chicago Bears Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State Josh The Bears are in need of a starting safety, and Bucannon is the best available. Adding him and Jernigan makes that defense a lot better right away.
52 Arizona Cardinals Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State Mike Arizona needs a partner for Andre Ellington and Hyde will add power to the running game.
53 Green Bay Packers Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin Josh All of the sudden, the Packers defense looks very good. Adding Ward and Borland gives the defense two leaders who can flat out ball.
54 Philadelphia Eagles Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech Mike This robbery should have never happened but the Eagles lucked out here.
55 Cincinnati Bengals Dominique Easley, DT, Florida Josh This is where taking the best player works out. Easley and Geno Atkins together...watch out.
56 San Francisco 49ers Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State Mike San Francisco cut Carlos Rogers and could use a cornerback that can play nickel or on the outside as well as safety help. Joyner cures all.
57 San Diego Chargers Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State Josh Chargers add a left tackle, because, well, King Dunlap can't be good again, can he?
58 New Orleans Saints Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State Mike The Saints have revolving door at center and could seriously use an upgrade. Richburg is the best at his position in this class.
59 Indianapolis Colts Marcus Martin, C, Southern California Josh With Richburg going off the board, the Colts are forced to take the next center to assure themselves that they do not miss out.
60 Carolina Panthers Carl Bradford, OLB, Arizona State Mike The Panthers are set on the inside but the outside linebacker position could use youth and depth, as well as an upgrade to Chase Blackburn.
61 New England Patriots Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington Josh ASJ has the potential to be Rob Gronkowski. Think about that. Uh oh.
62 San Francisco 49ers Will Sutton, NT, Arizona State Mike The 49ers have few glaring needs but adding youth to the defensive line is one them.
63 Denver Broncos Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut Josh Jamar Chaney is the starting MIKE right now in Denver, Smallwood can be a poor mans NaVorro Bowman. Not bad for a late second rounder.
64 Seattle Seahawks Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana Mike The big media "riser" of the draft season is the best blocker in the class and has the ability to eventually become a quailty starter for Seattle.
