Explanation

PICK

1

Texans

Nine Years later and your presented with the same choice in the 2005 Draft. Pick the once in a Generation DE and pair him with J.J (S) Watt

Jadeveon Clowney, DE South Carolina

2

Rams

Plain and simple, you need a darn good O-Line playing in the tough NFC West.

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

3

Jaguars

31 Sacks last year, plug in Mack and you have an immediate play maker for Gus 3-4 Defense

Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo

4

Browns

Fills RT until Jake Long leaves, but a league high 121 QB hits last year. While giving up 49 sacks, Great Fill

Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

5

Raiders

Potentially the best WR in the draft, to give Matt Schaub someone to throw to.

Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

6

Falcons

A healthy standing Matt Ryan, equals a scary 2014 offense for the Falcons

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

7

Buccaneers

With this pick, it helps fortify the Bucs WR core, who needs help after they traded Mike Williams

Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

8

Vikings

A.P your prayers are answered. You get your franchise QB so you don't have to run 50 times a game. Plus Norv gets Ben R 2.0

Blake Bortles, QB. UCF

9

Bills

193.9 passing yards per game. Plug in healthy E.J Manuel's and a new toy for his offense.

Eric Ebron, TE, UNC

10

Lions

This pick is no joke, this actually fills their biggest need with the BPA method. Also fills the void by L. Delmas

HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

11

Titans

With a transition to a 3-4 you need OLBs. Aside from Shaun Phillips there is a hole that they manage to fill

Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA

12

Giants

One thing that i can always rely on, is the the giants will take a Lineman with their first pick.

Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburg

13

Rams

With HaHa gone, Odell is the next best option. Top 3 WR in the draft, helps Sam Bradford out with Tavon Ausin

Odell Beckham Jr.WR, LSU

14

Bears

Plug in a hard hitting safety, who will fills a huge need in the back end. Immediately adds a force to be reckoned with in the NFC North.

Calvin Pryor, FS/S, Louisville

15

Steelers

Young CB with a high potential roof,while providing a younger CB for their rapidly aging Defense.

Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

16

Cowboys

Ranked dead last in defense. No matter how good your secondary is. It wont mean anything if you cant pressure the QB

Kony Ealy, DE, MIzzou

17

Ravens

Not sure many people knew this, but the ravens offense ranked 29th in YPG. Plug in Lee who immediately boost the pass offense that badly misses Anquan Boldin

Marquise Lee, WR, USC

18

Jets

Name a WR on the Jets that's not named Eric Decker. This pick gives Geno/Vick weapons to get this offense rolling.

Brandin Cooks,WR, Oregon State

19

Dolphins

Biggest Need, a plug in player who can play every position on the O-Line.

Zack Martin, OT/OG, Notre Dame

20

Cardinals

Couldn't be a mock draft without a draft shocker! This gives Teddy a year or too to develop his size and mechanics. Also if anything happens to Carson Palmer he gives you a good back-up

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

21

Packers

His fall stops right here. CJ has red flags due to injury but Dom Capers has his mouth watering with his new toy. Huge upgrade over Brad Jones, and the aging AJ Hawk

CJ Mosely, LB, Alabama

22

Eagles

It kills me to make this pick with Calvin Pryor on the board. Kyle Fuller is Hands down the best pick for the Eagles. Versatile player who can contend to start and helps out OK secondary.

Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

23

Chiefs

Gives a play maker to Alex Smith to add to his arsenal. D. Avery is better off as the 3rd WR

Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana

24

Bengals

Easy pick, two corners are over 30 while another corner is coming off of injury. Gives them a building block to help their secondary. (Dre Kirkpatrick who?)

Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

25

Chargers

Defense has given up the 5th most yards in the passing. Upgrade over their two corners, which is a huge need when you end up playing Peyton Manning twice a year.

Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan

26

Browns

"Draft Day Johnny Manziel, 5 years later how am I the man still" -Drake : Browns get their apparent heir to the Browns Organization.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

27

Saints

Add another piece to Rob Ryans 3-4 Defense. Gives a scary good pass rusher and fills a need.

Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn

28

Panthers

I would go WR here if OT Jordan Gross decides not to retire. This pick is a little bit of a reach at this pick. But the need is worth it, Keeping Cam Newton standing up right will help his development in becoming a better QB

Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

29

Patriots

(If this pick isn't traded) Now your probably wondering whats going through my head. Listen carefully: Revis, Browner, Arrington at CB and McCorty at safety. Enter this pick and it gives the Pats the scariest secondary next to the Seahawks.

Jimmie Ward. S, Northern Illinois

30

49ers

Ranked 24th in Pass Offense last year the 49ers beef up their WR core with this pick.

Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

31

Broncos

They would love to pick up Mosley here, but in this mock he isn't. This pick can be switched inside and fill in and be a better player than Jamar Chaney.

Ryan Shazier, OLB/ILB, Ohio State

32

Seahawks

"With the 32nd Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Super Bowl Champs select...." Yes plug in this versitile player and can be kicked out to RT to fill in after Breno Giacomini left to the Jets. If that doesn't work just slide him right into guard.

Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG/OT, UCLA
