    Please give me your feedback. I've been trying to do my homework on this as best as I could!

    1.) Indy- QB Andrew Luck. Though some have suggested The Colts might sneakily grab RGIII, Luck is still viewed as the most complete prospect since Peyton Manning.

    2.) Washington- QB Robert Griffin III. Did they overpay to get the #2 pick? Well, how desperate would you be for an elite QB prospect after years of Patrick Ramsey, Mark Brunell, Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, John Beck and Rex Grossman?

    3.) Minnesota- OT Matt Kalil. Christian Ponder has the ability to make plays outside the pocket, but Charlie Johnson at LT forced him to do so too often. The Vikes will remain faithful to Ponder this year, but they'll need to keep him healthy.

    4.) Cleveland- RB Trent Richardson. It's hard to be certain how The Browns will go here, but the departure of Peyton Hillis leaves them with the oft-injured Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbannaya. Richardson is a multidimensional back with great size, plus the Browns would like a bigger target at WR.

    5.) Tampa- CB Morris Claiborne. I wanted badly for him to end up a Ram, but it just doesn't seem to work out. The Bucs beefed up their o-line to help the run game and added Vincent Jackson which leaves Blackmon out of the picture here. Eric Wright was a solid addition but there defensive backfield is still in rough shape.

    6.) St. Louis- WR Justin Blackmon. Finally, an answer for the teams WR woes. Though not a 'burner' Blackmon is more than capable of getting behind a defense, and is very quick in and out of cuts. His sure hands and ability to snag balls anywhere near him will be an invaluable asset to Bradford.

    7.) Jacksonville- WR Michael Floyd. The Jags are desperate to find help on offense. While Floyd here might be a reach, the team realizes they can't leave Blaine Gabbert to fend for himself. Floyd will compliment newly added Laurent Robinson and allow Mike Thomas to move into the slot.

    8.) Miami- QB Ryan Tannehill. Their inability to sign a free agent QB might actually work out well for them. Though Tannehill is still a bit raw in terms of NFL QBs, he'll bring the skills needed to run a West Coast offense. Tannehill might not be a top 10 talent, but David Garrard isn't a starting QB.

    9.)Carolina- DE Melvin Ingram. The Panthers registered 31 sacks as a team last season. A lot of that could be attributed to injuries along the D-line and a lack of pass rush across from Charles Johnson.

    10.)Buffalo- OT Riley Reiff. The Bills went all in on defensive line help during the free agency, now it's time to help protect the investment in Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    11.)Kansas City- DT Dontari Poe. The Chiefs picking a first round lineman, real shocker right? They have lacked a true NT since switching to the 3-4 though and Poe has shown potential to really be a disruptive force there.

    12.)Seattle- DE Quinton Coples. The Seahawks resigned Red Bryant who has come into his own after transitioning from DT early on. They really need a pass rush presence though and Coples fits the bill nicely.

    13.)Arizona- OG David DeCastro. Deuce Lutui has got to go, which leaves an (extremely large) opening on the line. DeCastro has received rave reviews and favorable comparisons to Steve Hutchinson.

    14.)Dallas- DE/OLB Courtney Upshaw. Anthony Spencer has long been something of an under-achiever in Dallas and though he received the franchise tag, his replacement will likely be found this year.

    15.)Philadelphia- DT Fletcher Cox. The Eagles secured a MLB in Demeco Ryans which puts them out of the running for Luke Kuechly. They could use a big body in the middle of the line to occupy some blockers though. Cox would be a behemoth on the Philly line.

    16.)NY Jets- LB Luke Kuechly. Though Bart Scott remains a Jet, they have already cut down his playing time and can't really look forward to paying him his $4 million salary. Kuechly is a play toward the future and may allow NY to ship Scott off.

    17.)Cincy- CB Dre Kirkpatrick. Some things just work, like a player with judgement issues going to the Bengals. Kirkpatrick has a really good skill set though and also has a solid combo of size/speed.

    18.)San Diego- DE/OLB Nick Perry. This guy seems to be an athletic freak and the Chargers have missed an intimidating presence like this since the glory days of Shawn Merriman. Plus he's a SoCal guy.

    19.)Chicago- OT Jonathan Martin. He hasn't received rave reviews coming out of college, but Jay Cutler would welcome him with welcome arms. Paired with Gabe Carimi the Bears might finally give Cutler some time to do what he does best: Throw to Brandon Marshall.

    20.)Tennessee- DE Whitney Mercilus. The departure of Jason Jones leaves a void on the defensive line. Though the DT position could be upgraded for the Titans, Mercilus would be more valuable here.

    21.)Cincy- WR Kendall Wright. Jerome Simpson emerged as a great weapon for Andy Dalton last year, but now has a possible 5 year prison sentence looming over his head. Wright would be a great compliment to A.J. Green and allow Andy Dalton to further develop.

    22.)Cleveland- OG Cordy Glenn. There's been some turmoil on the O-line in Cleveland and that's the last thing they need for Colt McCoy. Glenn fits best at guard, but offers some versatility and could get tried out at RT.

    23.)Detroit- CB Janoris Jenkins. Jenkins is a guy with great skill but a head screwed on backwards. Detroit is a team that try as they might, cannot fix their secondary. Jenkins is looking to prove folks wrong and this could be a match made in heaven.

    24.)Pittsburgh- DT Michael Brockers. Though Brockers didn't have the greatest showing at the combine he's still a great prospect on the d-line and his size will work well in a 3-4. The Steelers will miss Aaron Smith and Brockers could fill that hole.

    25.)Denver- DT Devon Still. Lost in the headlines with the signing of Peyton Manning were the suspensions of DJ Williams and Ryan McBean, leaving a big hole up the middle of the Bronco's defense.

    26.)Houston- WR Stephen Hill. The NFL learned that when Andre Johnson goes down, so does the Texan's passing game. Matt Schaub only went over 300 yards once in his absence and that was the nail biter that they lost to the Raiders. Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter need to be upgraded.

    27.)New England- LB Dont'a Hightower. The Patriots need some serious help up front. Without much in the way of linemen, they can turn to Hightower who will immediately improve their LB corps and bump Brandon Spikes down the chart.

    28.)Green Bay- OLB Vinny Curry. For whatever reason, injury or otherwise, the Packers can't seem to get anyone to stick at the other OLB spot. Clay Matthews' production took a dip because of it too. Curry can get to the passer, but also plays well in run defense.

    29.)Baltimore- C Peter Konz. It makes sense. I wanted to avoid what other mockers were doing, but even with 3 year extension Matt Birk is old. Not to mention the loss of Ben Grubbs. No reason to think Konz can't cut his teeth and guard and move to center later on.

    30.) San Fran- TE Coby Fleener. Again, it just makes too much sense. Delanie Walker makes for a sneaky red zone receiver, but Fleener would be a big upgrade there. Plus it remains to be seen if Alex Smith can get the ball down field to Randy Moss, so it helps to have an extra TE.

    31.)New England- DT Brandon Thompson. They ran out their friggin' long snapper to play DE! The Pats (as mentioned) need line help and since they're comfortable switching schemes, the powerful Thompson makes sense for them here.

    32.)NY Giants- TE Orson Charles. Some may shy away because of his recent run in with the law, but Charles is still probably the #1 TE in the draft. He's a sound blocker and strong to boot, and convenient enough (for Charles) both Giants TEs tore ACLs in the Super Bowl.

    33.)St. Louis- RB David Wilson. I really don't like going RB early in the draft, but this guy is interesting. 5'10" 200lbs with 4.3 speed is pretty impressive. He can also catch the ball.

    39.)St. Louis- DT Alameda Ta'amu. I'm expecting a run on DTs early in the 2nd. Hopefully this is our dude. He's got a non-stop motor and he's a big mofo too. It'd be fantastic to have him next to Langford taking up a whole lot of space.
