Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (1st) 43DE Jadeveon Clowney South Carolina Jr 6'5 1/4" 266 lbs. 4.53

Analysis: The Houston Texans trade down. They receive Atlanta's 2014 1st, 2nd and 2015 1st and 2nd.

There is talk of Houston shopping the 1st overall draft pick in this year's draft. I think Atlanta, who is in dire need of defensive playmakers, are a potential target for that pick. Jadeveon Clowney will be a day one starter for Atlanta's brand new 34 defense, at OLB.

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

Analysis: With the 1st pick being drafted, it is very unlikely the Rams can manage to shop their pick.

I see St. Louis picking up the tackle with the most upside in the draft. Very reminescent of last year's Lane Johnson, Robinson might be the rawest of the top three OTs in this year's draft, but has shown he can be a quality player. Will be penciled down as a starter at RT straight away.

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

Analysis: Jacksonville has shown faith in Chad Henne this offseason by getting rid of Gabbert. Now, they will try to solidify their OLine before bringing in a big time franchise QB in next year's first round.

Pairing up Joeckel with his running buddy at A&M could be a very good choice for the Jaguars. They run a very similar offense to the Aggies, and Matthews will lose no time in learning protection schemes.

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

Analysis: Johnny Football gets off the board at number four, and goes to Cleveland. The Browns and Manziel have been tied earlier in the offseason, and while they dispelled the rumors, I believe they will go for the A&M playmaker.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (5th) WR Sammy Watkins Clemson Jr 6'0 3/4" 211 lbs. 4.43

Analysis: Watkins will go cross-country to Oakland, where he'll be teamed up with Denarius Moore, James Jones and Rod Streeter. Adding these four wideouts to a potent running attack of MJD and McFadden, and you have a high octane offense. With four potential starting receivers and two very good backs, you could look at a rotating offense that can hit 100% for the whole 60 minutes!

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (6th) QB Blake Bortles Central Florida rJr 6'5" 232 lbs. 4.93

Analysis: The Texans have traded down a great pass rusher for the best pocket passer in the draft. Bortles has sneaky athleticism, on top of a great arm. He's got the size necessary for the hits he's going to take at the next level, and a strong and accurate arm to come with it.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (7th) WR Mike Evans Texas A&M rSo 6'4 3/4" 231 lbs. 4.46

Analysis: Tampa Bay has an alright defense, and cannot pass on Mike Evans, who has all the physical tools to be the next Megatron. Pairing him with a vet like Vincent Jackson, and teaching him the tricks of the trade will make Evans the weapon of the future, for whichever QB is manning the ship down in Tampa.

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

Analysis: Arizona trades up to Minnesota for what may be the most surprising pick in this year's draft.

Carson Palmer did an awesome job last year, but he is clearly not the future of the franchise. He is on the wrong side of 30, and has shown in previous franchises that he can be up and down. Bridgewater, if drafted by the Cardinals, will have a year or two to sit and learn behind Palmer. He can focus on bulking up as well. However, by year 3, I think Arizona will unveil their weapon.

They offered their 2014 1st, 2nd, and a 4th in 2015 for Minnesota's 2014 1st.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (9th) 34OLB Khalil Mack Buffalo rSr 6'2 5/8" 251 lbs. 4.55

Analysis: Khalil Mack stays in Buffalo (or maybe Toronto?), period. He is a great defensive force, and can be the last remaining piece for the most dominating front 7 in football.

Buffalo's starting front seven: LDE Mario Williams, NT Marcell Dareus, RDE Kyle Williams, LOLB Khalil Mack, LILB Kiko Alonso, RILB Brandon Spikes, ROLB Manny Lawson.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (10th) CB Justin Gilbert Oklahoma St. Sr 6'0 1/8" 202 lbs. 4.37

Analysis: Detroit needs cornerback help, and it turns out the best player available is just that. Justin Gilbert brings length, speed and smarts to a very poor Detroit secondary. There is no way he doesn't become the best player in the Lions defensive backfield, and that as a rookie. Great pick up by Detroit.

I think Lawrence Virgil will be an undrafted free agent, he tries to play powerball, but doesn't have the size or strength for that. Also, isn't very good at avoiding the low blocks. The video used doesn't show great speed so DE or OLB would be an issue. Good hustle though.

Ah! I see you're a Jags fan. I picked Virgil in the 7th round for Jacksonville
because they are lacking depth at the DT position. The kid can either play DT or
DE as well, and with Bradley's defensive scheme, Virgil could backup Alualu at the
LDE spot, as well as bring competition at the DT spots.

This is a pretty good draft for the Rams. I just can't for the life of me see them selecting a WR in the 1st round (or early at all) again. They tried the spread concepts last year early after selecting Tavon Austin and then scrapped it pretty quickly to go back to Fisher's old run first philosophy. This is a make or break year for Brian Quick too, 2012's #33 overall pick. I also think Bullough is kind of a redundant pick.

The rest is really solid. I LOVE Greg Robinson. Joel Bitonio and Terrence Brooks make lots of sense. Although the Rams might use Greg Robinson at LG instead of RT, until Jake Long is gone. Fales, Gaffney, Swanson all picks I like. Colvin would be a nice pick to take a flier on late too.

Hello Ramzee!

I'm glad you like the draft, I put over two weeks to finally finish this draft.
As for the WR in the first round, I think it is a possibility. Sam Bradford is
in dire need of a number 1 receiver for his contract year, and I don't think
Pettis, Givens, Quick or Britt are it. They are all average at best receivers.
Austin is a strong player in the slot, and I believe Bailey may be the best
option at number 4.

As for the Rams linebacker situation, I think Skov could be the starter on the
right side, over Dunbar. Bullough fits well as a backup to Laurinaitis, as most
of the other linebackers on the roster are more suited to play on the outside.
