Pick Team Selection Analyst Comments Trade Details
1 Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina Josh Clowney is the best player in this draft, hands down.
2 Cleveland Browns (via STL from WAS) Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida Mike The Browns have to settle the quarterback position and have an extra 1st round pick to fall back on for another position, so it's time to pull the trigger. CLE gets: 2nd overall, STL gets: 4th and 35th overall
3 Jacksonville Jaguars Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville Josh Jaguars finally get their quarterback of the future.
4 St. Louis Rams (via CLE) Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn Mike The Rams get who they wanted to begin with and picked up another 2nd round pick, which ain't too shabby.
5 St. Louis Rams (via OAK) Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo Josh The Rams got who they wanted at two with Robinson anyway, then moved up with the 2nd they acquired to solidify the best front seven in the NFL. STL gets: 5th overall, OAK gets 13th overall 35th overall, 2015 4th
6 Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M Mike The Falcons have collected weapons for Matt Ryan, so now it's about time they started protecting him in the pocket.
7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson Josh With or without Mike Williams, Watkins is the best player on the board for the Bucs.
8 Minnesota Vikings CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama Mike The Vikings need a new centerpiece for their defense and Mosley can play MIKE or WILL for Mike Zimmer, as well as be a leader in the locker room.
9 Buffalo Bills Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan Josh May be a bit of a reach, but the Bills need to shore up that offensive line.
10 Detroit Lions Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State Mike Since the Lions improved wide receiver in free agency, they solidify the cornerback position in the first round in the draft with few teams willing to trade up.
11 Tennessee Titans Jason Verrett, CB, TCU Josh Why not replace Verner with a better version of him?
12 New York Giants Zach Martin, OT, Notre Dame Mike Martin's versatility will allow the Giants to plug and play him at literally any spot on the offensive line and New York could use competition at all spots.
13 Oakland Raiders (via STL) Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M Josh The Raiders get the playmaker they need, and a big-time red zone threat.
14 Chicago Bears HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama Mike When your defense is giving away play after play, you need an enforcer who can stop the run and excel in coverage.
15 Pittsburgh Steelers Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State Josh The Steelers need secondary help, bad. Gilbert brings them a terrific athlete who plays cornerback.
16 Dallas Cowboys Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA Mike The Tampa 2 defense needs its Derrick Brooks and Barr could turn into that player for the Cowboys with his athletic presence and versatility.
17 Baltimore Ravens Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia Josh Moses can play either of the tackle positions, and will be an instant starter at right tackle for the Ravens.
18 New York Jets Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State Mike The Jets really could have used a cornerback here but the value just isn't there, so they decided to upgrade their receiver unit with a younger Santonio Holmes.
19 Miami Dolphins Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, UCLA Josh Su'a-Filo gives the Dolphins an instant starter that will be a force for ten years.
20 New England Patriots (via ARZ) Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh Josh Donald is a tad undersized, but Belichick will let him do what he does best, and what a player he can be. Cardinals get: 29th and 93rd overall picks, Pats get 20th
21 Green Bay Packers Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois Josh Ward can do anything a safety needs to do, and he does it well. Packers shore up their secondary here.
22 Philadelphia Eagles Dee Ford, OLB/DE, Auburn Mike The Eagles would like to trade back and get a wide receiver along with some more picks, but they are happy with their new pass rusher, who could develop into a 10-12 sacks per year player.
23 Kansas City Chiefs Odell Beckham, WR, LSU Josh Beckham is a very good route runner, and will get himself open each play for Alex Smith.
24 Cincinnati Bengals Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri Mike The loss of Michael Johnson leaves the Bengals without a talented young defensive end, but they have quickly filled that need with the talented former SEC sack monster.
25 San Diego Chargers Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech Josh The Chargers desperately need cornerback help, and Fuller is the best on the board.
26 Cleveland Browns (via IND) Marqise Lee. WR, USC Mike The Browns have a need opposite of Josh Gordon and Lee would fit in well with the Mike Shanahan offense.
27 New Orleans Saints Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State Josh Benjamin has some flaws, but nothing that Drew Brees will not be able to minimize. The Saints are now unstoppable in the red zone.
28 Carolina Panthers Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina Mike Ebron has fallen through the cracks of this mock draft but he will be a reliable weapon for the next few years for Cam Newton.
29 Arizona Cardinals (via NE) Jace Amaro, TE, Texas A&M Mike After being viciously trolled by the Panthers, the Cardinals go for the next best tight end on the board.
30 San Francisco 49ers Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State Mike The 49ers have shown patience with players coming off injuries and Roby is an exceptional talent when healthy.
31 Denver Broncos David Yankey, G, Stanford Josh Yankey will immediately step in at guard to help protect Peyton Manning.
32 Oakland Raiders (via SEA) Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State Josh After adding Mike Evans in the first, the Raiders trade back in to the first round ahead of the Texans for their franchise quarterback. Raiders get: 32. Seahawks get: 35, a 4th and a 7th
33 Houston Texans Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M Josh Johnny Football stays in Texas, but in the second round. Great value for the Texans to get both him and Clowney.
34 Washington Redskins Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville Mike The Redskins need all the help they can get on defense and the secondary could youth some talented youth...and not Baccari Rambo...
35 Seattle Seahawks (via OAK via STL via CLE) RaShede Hageman, DE, Minnesota Mike This mammoth human being is raw but the talent on the Seattle defensive line gives him a year or so to develop into a dominating force.
36 Oakland Raiders Kyle Van Noy, LB, BYU Mike The Raiders added a quarterback and wide receiver, now it's time to add some talent to the defense.
37 Atlanta Falcons Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame Josh The Falcons add Tony Gonzalez' replacement early in the second. Niklas is an incredible blocker as well.
38 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State Mike Shazier will serve as the WILL in Lovie Smith's new Tampa 2 defense.
39 Jacksonville Jaguars Lamarcus Joyner, DB, Florida State Josh Imagine what Gus Bradley can do with the versatile Joyner. Safety or corner, the guy just makes plays.
40 Minnesota Vikings Jimmy Garappolo, QB, Eastern Illinois Mike Garappolo is a quarterback to develop behind Matt Cassel and the new regime could slowly bring him along with the veteran in place.
41 Buffalo Bills Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt Josh The Bills have other needs, but Matthews is too good of a value to pass up on, especially with WR-needy teams coming up.
42 Tennessee Titans Tre Mason, RB, Auburn Mike Chris Johnson is a goner and the Titans can't depend on Shaun Greene to carry the load, so they nab Mason off the board.
43 New York Giants Dominique Easley, DT, Florida Josh If he's healthy, Easley is a sure top 20 pick. The GMen nab a good player at 43.
44 Pittsburgh Steelers (via STL) Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State Mike The Steelers continue to retool their offensive line, which has seemingly become an annual turnstile. Steelers trade the 46th pick and a 6th rounder to Rams for 44
45 Detroit Lions Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State Josh Adams is a monster one-on-one with anyone, and he'll get that with Megatron on the other side.
46 St. Louis Rams (via PIT) Terrence Brooks, S, Florida State Mike The Rams have avoided improving their safety position in recent drafts, but this year they will attack the need with a very talented player, who comes from a winning program.
47 Dallas Cowboys Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame Josh After nabbing Barr in the first, the Cowboys get another great value with the former Irish star.
48 Baltimore Ravens Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame Mike Arthur Jones has moved to Indianapolis, so the Ravens will look to hammer out his replacement with Tuitt.
49 New York Jets Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood Josh Despite drafting Milliner last year, the Jets still need another corner. Desir is the best available and a great value at 49.
50 Miami Dolphins Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennesee Mike The Dolphins continue to form a solid offensive line this offseason with their first two picks in the draft.
51 Chicago Bears Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State Josh The Bears added Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston, and now with Clinton-Dix and Jernigan the defense gets a lot better in one offseason.
52 Arizona Cardinals Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State Mike The Cardinals pair Andre Ellington with a ground and pound back that Arizona prays is not the second coming of Beanie Wells.
53 Green Bay Packers Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State Josh Robinson has the potential to be a number one, but here he is just another dynamic weapon for Aaron Rodgers.
54 Philadelphia Eagles Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State Mike The Eagles have lessened their need with Malcolm Jenkins and bringing back Nate Allen, but the safety group can be upgraded and Bucannon serves as talented youth to develop.
55 Cincinnati Bengals Chris Borland, LB, Wisconsin Josh Borland is a tad undersized, but can play any LB position and is an animal going sideline to sideline.
56 San Francisco 49ers Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington Mike The rich get richer with another new running back to pair with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore with LaMichael James likely being shown the door.
57 San Diego Chargers Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami Josh Henderson can be as good as he wants to be, and could be a day one starter if his head is on straight. Incredible talent.
58 New Orleans Saints Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss Mike The Saints have seen plenty of offensive players come and go this offseason and Moncrief will help add depth to the wide receiver unit.
59 Indianapolos Colts Jeremiah Attaochu, DE/OLB, Georgia Tech Josh Attaochu is a great value for the Colts this late, and can play with his hands in the dirt or standing up.
60 Carolina Panthers Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State Mike The lack of 4-3 teams and depth of this class have caused Crichton to slip and he will serve as a possible 2015 replacement to franchise player Greg Hardy.
61 New England Patriots Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington Josh ASJ's ceiling is Rob Gronkowski. Think about that for a second.
62 San Francisco 49ers Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU Mike The 49ers looked at a few wide receivers in free agency but chose to trust the depth of the draft and won with Landry.
63 Denver Broncos Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson Josh Minus Eric Decker, plus Martavis Bryant. Not a bad trade for the Broncos if Bryant even comes close to his potential.
64 Seattle Seahawks Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado Mike This wide receiver run continues with a replacement for Golden Tate.
