Show/Hide All Player Comments Rd (Ovr) Team Pos Name College Cls Height Weight 40
Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (1st) 43DE Jadeveon Clowney South Carolina Jr 6'5 1/4" 266 lbs. 4.53

Analysis: Although the Texans are in need of a QB, Clowney is a can't miss player. After running a blazing 4.53 40 yard dash at the Scouting Combine, he proved how explosive he can be off the edge. With Clowney and J.J. Watt at the DE positions, the Texans become one of the more scarier pass rushing teams in the NFL.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (2nd) OT Greg Robinson Auburn rSo 6'5" 332 lbs. 4.92

Analysis: The Rams will most likely trade out of this pick, but right now, I've got them selecting Greg Robinson. At 6'4" 330+ pounds, this guy is a monster. And his Combine performance only helped his stock. Jake Long is not the long term answer at LT, so going with Robinson here and moving Long to RT makes sense.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (3rd) OT Jake Matthews Texas A&M Sr 6'5 1/2" 308 lbs. 5.07

Analysis: Even with glaring QB needs, I've got them taking a Tackle here. The Jags have an average Offensive Line. And if they plan on winning anything in the next 5 years, they've got to get their franchise LT now.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (4th) WR Sammy Watkins Clemson Jr 6'0 3/4" 211 lbs. 4.43

Analysis: Risky move here not taking a QB, but I think they can get one a little later. Watkins opposite of Josh Gordon is a nightmare for opposing defenses. At 6'1" 211 pounds, he's not the biggest WR, but he is explosive. Watch Clemson's Bowl Game.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (5th) QB Johnny Manziel Texas A&M rSo 5'11 3/4" 207 lbs. 4.68

Analysis: The first QB finally comes off the board. The Raiders have been at the bottom for too long, and are hoping Johnny Football is the guy that can dig them out. Manziel has incredible talent, albeit a little rough around the edges. He's got to learn to become a pocket passer, and not to get happy feet when under pressure.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (6th) CB Justin Gilbert Oklahoma St. Sr 6'0 1/8" 202 lbs. 4.37

Analysis: The Falcons have a HUGE hole at the CB position, with the departure of former Pro Bowler Asante Samuel. That's why Justin Gilbert makes perfect sense here. After an excellent Combine, the Falcons realize they have a can't miss cornerstone for their defense.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (7th) OT Taylor Lewan Michigan rSr 6'7 1/8" 309 lbs. 4.87

Analysis: Mike Glennon had a good first year in TB. A lot of people have QB here, but I think the smarter choice is to build an offensive line for Glennon. Taylor Lewan is the most athletic OT in the draft, and proved it at the Combine. He will be a cornerstone for this franchise.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (8th) QB Teddy Bridgewater Louisville Jr 6'2 1/8" 214 lbs. 4.79

Analysis: With questions at QB since Ponder was drafted, and even before that, it's no wonder what the Vikings will do at No.8 in the draft. Bridgewater has huge upside and should be allowed time to learn as he hands the ball to Adrian Peterson on Sundays.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (9th) WR Mike Evans Texas A&M rSo 6'4 3/4" 231 lbs. 4.46

Analysis: After drafting EJ Manuel last year, it's time to get him some more weapons. And Mike Evans is just that. Almost Calvin Johnson like in size at 6'5" 231 pounds and a 40 time of 4.53, the Bills can't pass up on this guy.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (10th) CB Darqueze Dennard Michigan St. Sr 5'10 7/8" 199 lbs. 4.52

Analysis: After missing out on Justin Gilbert, the Lions still go CB at No.10 overall. Dennard had an average Combine, but is still a very gifted player. Very good in Press Coverage, he's what the Lions need in a division with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and the army of WR the Packers have.

The first shocker to me is Matthews going #3 to Jacksonville. I would think with all the QB options available in this draft it's going to have to be a franchise caller. They just traded Gabbert to SF too. Gilbert to the Falcons is pretty shocking too. Mack fell quite a bit. Yankey is up pretty high.

The big one to me is Bortles to #26 and Cleveland. Wow, what a slide! Why do you think he is a late round one guy?

First of all, thank you for your comment. It is very much appreciated.

Second, I'm new to mock drafting, so there's bound to be a few head scratchers.
But overall, I liked my draft. It's changed a lot since I created it with all
the moves now happening in free agency and trade rumors and speculations.

Now, allow me to explain...

First, Matthews made sense at #3 to me because as a rebuilding team, you need a
LT that's going to be there for 12-15 years. I figured they would hold out for a
QB until next years draft class with guys like Mariota, Hundley, Miller, and
maybe even Jameis Winston. But now that they've traded Gabbert, it looks to me
like they're going QB. My mock will be updated most likely to reflect this.

Gilbert to the Falcons makes sense. They need help in the secondary. Big time.
What position do you think they're looking for, if not CB?

As for Mack, dropping to 14 isn't catastrophic. And the Bears would love to have
him. I'm thinking maybe now either the Falcons or Bills would get him. Although
with the moves the Bucs have been making Defensively, they could be in the
market too.

The Yankey pick, now that I reflect on it, wasn't a very good one. I know the
Ravens need help on the OL, but I think they address it later in the draft.

As for Bortles. Out of the top 10 picks, the Texans, Jaguars, Browns, Raiders,
Bucs, and Vikings all have QB needs. The Bucs I think are confident in Mike
Glennon. The Texans, unless they trade out of the pick, are no doubt taking
Clowney Number 1, and I think they get their QB at the top of the 2nd round...

That leaves the Jags, Browns, Raiders, and Vikings. I still believe Raiders go
Manziel and Vikings go Bridgewater, although that could change by my next mock
draft. I believe if the Browns believe they can get a QB later in the draft,
they take a different positional need with a difference maker like Sammy
Watkins.

I don't think that Bortles will go #3 right now to the Jags. Things could
obviously change, but for now no. And then he slips all the way to 26, because
outside of the top 10, how many other teams need a QB? The only surprise team
could be the Titans at 11, but if not, that's why he slips to 26. Remember Brady
Quinn?(I know he sucked, but still). Same thing happened to Aaron Rodgers. They
both slipped in the draft after guys had them going high because there weren't
very many teams outside of the top 10 looking for QBs.

I hope I explained myself well enough. I look forward to mock drafting all 7
rounds, complete with trades, at the end of this month.

Thanks again for your comment!

I'm groovy with most of it and I love Ebron falling to the Pats - my only complain would be Khalil Mack
falling!
