ROUND 1      change       prior pick in this mock draft

PICK TEAM

PLAYER

COMMENT
1 IND Luck
QB
Stanford
There are no surprises here, and there will be no surprises at this spot in the NFL draft.  Luck to the Colts is a given.  So bye, bye Mr. New Orleans born guy, quarterbacked the Colts to the playoffs but your run is now dry ...
2 WAS Griffin III
QB
Baylor
The Redskins' trade makes the intrigue at the two exceptional mock draft portal sites, Hail Redskins and DC Pro Sports disappear.  Both sites are run by Redskins fans.  The cost in draft picks was high, but I believe it will be worth it in the long run.
3 MIN Kalil
OT
USC
There is a lot of buzz around Claiborne here, however, I believe it is just buzz.  I still believe Kalil will be their selection here unless 
4 CLE Richardson
RB
Alabama
I had Richardson here early.  Richardson now appears to be a consensus at this spot.  He is a special back and, without coming away with Griffin III, assures the Browns of a young star on offense.
5 TB Claiborne
CB
LSU
The Bucs signing Vincent Jackson cements my choice of Claiborne here.  After his workout, I was tempted to go Blackmon here, however, now he will not be considered at this spot.  The Bucs have a need at cornerback and Claiborne has the value to be drafted here.
6 STL Blackmon
WR
Oklahoma State
With STL now picking at this spot, and Blackmon putting to rest fears of a 4.6 forty, I look for them to grab Blackmon if the draft unfolds as I have it.
7 JAC Gilmour
CB
South Carolina
There has been a lot of buzz here regarding Gilmour, a player I believe has top 10 talent.  Even though Ingram is still a possibility, I'm biting.  There will be a good defensive end available for Jacksonville in round two.
Last mock was DE/OLB Ingram
8 MIA Tannehill
QB
Texas A&M
No Manning, no Flynn, very few free agents attracted to the mess that is the Ross-Ireland owner-GM tandem means the Dolphins have to get their QB in the draft.  Even if they wait a year, this year demonstrates that players may stay away in free agency again next year.  So the draft it is, and sooner is better than later.  With Moore on hand the Dolphins will not have to force feed Tannehill.  
9 CAR Cox
DT
Mississippi St
I'm stubbornly moving of Reiff here, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is the pick.  With potentially one more update after this, I might go back to him.  The Panthers need help on their defensive line.  With Ingram now available he could be the pick.  However, I went with Cox since he can help against the run and has pass rushing skills.
Last mock was OT Reiff
10 BUF Reiff
OT
Iowa
My mock draft has now unfolded as Buffalo wanted it to.  With Reiff available they grab the much needed offensive tackle. 
Last mock was WR Floyd
11 KC Poe
DT
Memphis
The Chiefs can use a big-run-stuffer in the middle of their defense.  Poe is a big man and a tremendous athlete for a kid his size.
12 SEA DeCastro
OG
Stanford
The board is setting up nicely for Seattle.  DeCastro, Coples, Ingram, and Kuechly all would make sense here.  The signing of Jason Jones has me going off Coples and Ingram.  That leaves DeCastro and Kuechly.  The resigning of Hill and signing of Ruud leaves me projecting DeCastro here, even though I am in the minority on this projection.  DeCastro is a replacement and potential upgrade over Gallery who signed with New England.
13 ARZ Martin
OT
Stanford
Many will call this a reach, however, Arizona needs a tackle badly.  So, if they belive in Martin, as I do, then it won't matter in the long run if they drafted him higher than his current value.  A quick point about Tebow hype.  The QB who best fit the mold of three so-so at best quarters and then turned it on in the fourth quarter and overtime to get wins last year was Skelton.  I like this kid's upside.  He wasn't suppose to hit the field in his first two years, they were suppose to be sit and learn years.  He progressed nicely from year one to year two and I expect that trend to continue.
14 DAL Barron
SS
Alabama
Even though Dallas signed Carr, I could still see them grabbing Gilmour here.  Coples will also be tempting.  However, for now, I'll stay put and have them draft strong safety Barron.  They signed Pool, but he is best served as a backup. 
15 PHI Brockers
DT
LSU
Great trade for the Eagles in getting Ryans.  I love the new Eagles linebacker corps now.  Chaney will be fine at SAM, and I had a second round grade last year on Rolle who will develop into an excellent WILL for Philly.  So now there is no room for Kuechly at this spot.  Therefore, with Laws leaving in free agency I have the Eagles drafting Brockers to initially work into the rotation, and eventually taking over as a starter.
Last mock was DT Cox
16 NYJ Ingram
OLB/DE
South Carolina
The Jets could go in a number of different directions here.  They could grab Floyd, or draft Ingram or Coples.  However, when in doubt, I look for Ryan to go defense.  Ingram is a slightly better fit for their 3-4 defense than Coples, so that is who I have the Jtes drafting.  However, with Coples falling into their laps, they are happy to pull the trigger.  Coples is a good fit to play the "Suggs" role (a linebacker who is really a defensive end) in this defense.
Last mock was DE/OLB Coples
17 CIN Floyd
WR
Notre Dame
This will be interesting.  The Bengals have given every indication that they would go cornerback here, and another postiion with the 21st pick.  However, with Floyd available, I anticipate them changing it up.
Last mock was CB Gilmour
18 SD Mercilus
OLB/DE
Illinois
Hmmm, does signing Robert Meachem mean the Chargers won't go receiver here?  With their need for a pass rusher on defense, and with Mercilius, Coples, and Upshaw available, I say yes, even though Hill is a perfect fit for their system.  
19 CHI Coples
DE/OLB
North Carolina
While many draft analysts are predicting a receiver here, I'm going in a different direction.  I think the Bears go receiver in free agency (UPDATE - They went trade instead getting Brandon Marshall).  While I still believe that the Bears could continue building their offense line by drafting Glenn, with Coples available I have them drafting him to play opposite Peppers.
Last mock was OG Glenn
20 TEN Glenn
OG/OT
Georgia
With Glenn now available I have the Titans grabbing him instead of Kirkpatrick.  Scott is an UFA and Harris was less than stellar last year.  I keep looking for a spot for Kuechly who has fallen in my mock through no fault of his own after I had Seattle passing on him.  This is a potential landing spot, but McCarthy played well in relief of Ruud last year.
Last mock was CB Kirkpatrick
21 CIN Kirkpatrick
CB
Alabama
Does the signing of Green-Ellis mean the Bengals have solved their need at running back?  I think not, but they may think yes.  The Bengals passing on the corner for Floyd at #17 works out a they get Kirkpatrick at #21.
Last mock was DE/OLB Upshaw
PRIOR PICKS: WR Floyd
22 CLE Weeden
QB
Oklahoma ST
I am beginning to think this come down to whether or not the Browns think Weeden will be available for them in round two.  They could pick a receiver here and trade back up into the late first round, but I don't include trades in my mock draft.  Therefore, with excellent depth at receiver and a fall off after Weeden, I have the Browns grabbing Weeden here and looking for a receiver on day two. 
PRIOR PICKS: RB Richardson
23 DET Martin
RB
Boise State
The Lions thought they had their running back situation solved with a Best-LeShoure tandem.  Now LeShoure has seen his future go up in smoke, and Best cannot stay healthy.  Martin won't disappoint.  He can be the every down back and either Best or Leshoure  can be the change-of-pace back.
24 PIT Kuechly
ILB
Boston College
The Steelers are looking for a young inside linebacker to replace Farrior.  Kuechly is drafted to be that player.  This pick is an absolute steal for Pittsburgh, and my guess is, if Kuechly starts falling, a team such as Seattle could look to move back into round one to grab him much higher than this.
25 DEN Worthy
DT
Michigan State
While a running back makes sense for me (and Coach John Fox - just remember his Stewart/Williams tandem in Carolina) with Bunkley moving on and Thomas an UFA, I have them taking one of the talented defensive tackles still on the board.  Peyton will have to wait until later for some new toys.
Last mock was DT Brockers
26 HOU Hill
WR
Georgia Tech
Do Texans like Sharpton enough to pass on Hightower here as Ryans' replacement?  With Hill available, I say yes.  The Texans will look for linebacker help later and take Hill here.
27 NE Perry
DE
USC
The Pats are licking their chops as they send up their card with Perry's name on it.  They lost Anderson in free agency and Carter is an UFA and coming off injury.
28 GB McClellin
OLB/DE
Boise State
Can Upshaw play OLB in a 3-4 defense?  If the draft unfolds as I have it, this spot will answer that question.  Will Upshaw's fall stop here, or will he be passed over by a player more suited to OLB in the Packers' 3-4 defense?  I say Upshaw's slide continues as Green Bay selects the hogh-motor and athletic McClellin.
Last mock was OLB/DE Branch
29 BAL Konz
C
Wisconsin
This is where Konz becomes the future at center for the Ravens and can backup at guard and right tackle as well until he gets the starting job.
30 SF Zeitler
OG
Wisconsin
The 49ers need a long term solution at right guard.  Since the need is immediate I have them drafting Zeitler over Silatolu.
Last mock was Worthy DT/DE
31 NE Robinson
CB
Central Florida
I think the Pats like their cornerbacks better on paper than on the field right now.  I look for them to move McCourty to safety full time next year.  With Dowling unproven and coming off injury, and Arrington possibly best served as a nickel, Robinson who can fly and is very athletic, is drafted and grows into one of the top cornerbacks in the league.
PRIOR PICKS: DE Perry
32 NYG Wilson
RB
Virginia Tech
After signing Bennett the Giants can look tight end later in the draft.  The Giants need a running back to pair with Bradshaw.  Bradshaw used to be more of a game-breaker.  Last year his longest run was 26 yards.  Wilson offers a nice compliment who possess game-breaking speed.

ROUND TWO   

ROUND 2     change         prior pick in this mock draft

PICK TEAM

PLAYER

COMMENT
33 STL Reyes
DT
Connecticut
This is a good draft for defensive tackles and the Rams get a good one at the top of round two. Reyes is the choice over Still  for now, but that may change.  He will be paired with newly signed Langford, who played DE in Miami's 3-4 last year.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Blackmon
34 IND Fleener
TE
Stanford
While a receiver like Wright will be tempting, this draft is deep at receiver and the Colts can get a good one later in the draft.  With no solid option at tight end, why not pair Luck with his college target who is clearly the best receiving tight end in this draft.
PRIOR PICKS: QB Luck
35 MIN Jeffery
WR
South Carolina
With no corner with good value at this spot, I expect the Vikings to go receiver here.  With Harvin, an undersized receiver already on board, I look for MIN to go with a receiver with size at his spot.  So Wright will continue to drop.  Jeffrey ran well at his Pro Day and has Brandon-Lloyd-like ability to catch the ball.
PRIOR PICKS: OT Kalil
36 TB Miller
RB
Miami
The Bucs wanted Richardson in round one but I had the Browns selecting him right before they picked.  The speedy Miller is an ideal back to pair with the bruiser Blount.
PRIOR PICKS: CB Claiborne
37 CLE Randle
WR
LSU
I had the Browns decision for their second pick in round one between Weeden and a receiver.  I indicated a good receiver would be available when they picked in round two and I was right, Randle is a steal at this spot in the draft.
Last mock was WR Wright
PRIOR PICKS: RB Richardson, QB Weeden
38 JAC Upshaw
DE/OLB
Alabama
While Jacksonville needs a receiver, they need a defensive end more.  So Upshaw's slide stops with a team that will use him a lot his rookie year.
Last mock was WR Randle
PRIOR PICKS: CB Gilmour
39 STL Jenkins
CB
North Alabama
Having already drafted two good players, the Rams are in a good spot to take a shot on the potential off-the-field troubled Jenkins.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Blackmon, DT Reyes
40 CAR Branch
DE/OLB
Clemson
The board sets up nicely for the Panthers here.  They can grab WR Randle Still or DE Curry or Branch.  For now, I have them going with the defensive end Branch.
Last mock was DT Reyes
PRIOR PICKS: DT Cox
41 BUF Wright
WR
Baylor
With the Bills now grabbing Floyd in round one, I have them changing up to McClellin here.  Much like Miller last year, most will have McClellin drafted to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, but he has the skills to play outside in 4-3 as well.
Last mock was OLB/DE McClellin
PRIOR PICKS: OT Reiff
42 MIA Curry
DE
Marshall
I see this pick coming down to Curry or a wide receiver.  There are still a lot of good receivers on the board and Miami can get one in round three.  So Curry is the pick here to start opposite Waqke in Miami's new 4-3 defense.
PRIOR PICKS: QB Tannehill
43 SEA Hightower
ILB
Alabama
Ruud isn't a bad option at middle linebacker, but Hightower has the potential to be better.  Hightower can start off as the Seahawks fourth linebacker before settling in as a starter.
PRIOR PICKS: OG DeCastro
44 KC Adams
OT
Ohio State
When the Chiefs drafted Albert I felt he would end up at guard, not left tackle.  I still believe that is is best NFL position.  Adams allows the Chiefs to move him to guard, as long as he doesn't allow his career to go up in smoke.
PRIOR PICKS: DT Poe
45 DAL Still
DE/DE
Penn State
The Cowboys are thrilled that Still is available.  The Cowboys need an upgrade at defensive end.  Still, a defensive tackle in college, has the skill set to kick outside to end in Dallas' 3-4 defense.
PRIOR PICKS: SS Barron
Last mock was OG Zeitler
46 PHI Smith
FS/SS
Notre Dame
Smith is an ideal pick since he has the speed for free safety and the hitting ability for strong safety.  If Jarrett comes through he can play free safety and move Coleman to nickel safety.  If not, he can slide in next to Coleman (or Allen if he develops).
PRIOR PICKS: DT Brockers
47 NYJ Sanu
WR
Rutgers
With Burress not resigning, the Jets need a big receiver with reliable hands.  Sanu fits that bill.
PRIOR PICKS: DE/OLB Ingram
48 NE Kendricks
MLB
California
Spikes is a tough kid but he doesn't have the speed to play middle linebacker in a 4-3 defense.  Kendricks has the production, speed, quickness and athleticism to excel in the NFL.  I love this pick for the Pats. 
PRIOR PICKS: DE Perry, CB Robinson
49 SD James
RB
Oregon
The Chargers missed Sproles last year.  James is drafted to be the change-of-pace back for Mathews.  Like Sproles, James is a big-play waiting to happen.
PRIOR PICKS: OLB Mercilus
50 CHI Silatolu
OG
Midwestern St
While Givens is a favorite of mine in this draft, with the Bears now passing on a guard in round one in favor of Coples, I have them selecting Silatolu over the speedy receiver.
Last mock was WR Givens
PRIOR PICKS: DE Coples
51 PHI Fleming
CB
Oklahoma
If Samuel is traded or cut, the Eagles will need a another corner.  Fleming is a very underrated prospect in the draft.  He has the speed to play outside and the quickness to cover slot receivers.  He is one of my favorite undervalued players in the draft.
PRIOR PICKS: DT Brockers, FS/SS Smith
52 TEN Hosley
CB
Virginia Tech
David can push Witherspoon for the starting WILL and would give the Titans a solid, young linebacking corps.
Last mock was OLB David
PRIOR PICKS: OG/OT Glenn
53 CIN Turbin
RB
Utah
Turbin has the power like Green-Ellis and is fast, not Scott-fast, but fast enough to make big plays.  He will eventually be their workhorse running back.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Floyd, CB Kirkpatrick
54 DET Jones
DE
Syracuse
With Hosley off the board, I now have them going with Jones a player most have a higher grade on than me.  With Vanden Bosch getting up in age and Avril potentially leaving in free agency next year if a long term contract cannot be negotiated, Jones makes sense here.
Last mock was CB Hosley
PRIOR PICKS: RB Martin
55 ATL Egnew
TE
MIssouri
If the draft unfolds as I have it and both Allen and Charles are on the board, I will be curious to see if my preference for Egnew over those two will be vindicated as I have it projected here.  The Falcons need to plan for Gonzalez' retirement.
56 PIT Polk
RB
Wisconsin
The Steelers need a running back with Mendenhall likely to begin the year on the PUP.  Redman did okay filling in but Polk is an underrated prospect who I project to be an upgrade on Redman.
PRIOR PICKS: ILB Kuechly
57 DEN Brooks
OG
Miami (OH)
While Coach Fox loves his running backs, I believe with Turbin and Polk off the board he will wait a round or two to select one.  With Manning as the new starter it's a good idea to get offensive line depth and potential.  Brooks is an interesting prospect who could develop into a special player.  
PRIOR PICKS: DT Worthy
58 HOU Allen
TE
Clemson
With solid back-up TE Dreessen leaving in free agency, Allen becomes his replacement.  Allen hurt himself at the Combine.  However, while it doesn't appear he will be a difference-maker as a starter, he will be one of the best back-up TEs in the league; one who can also fill in as a solid starter if the starter gets injured.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Hill
59 GB Pead
RB
Cincinatti
With Grant not likely to be resigned, Starks yet to break out as I thought (mainly due to constant injury) and Green not a sure thing, I look for the Packers to grab Pead who will be the change-of-pace back to Starks, Green, or whoever 
PRIOR PICKS: OLB McClellin
60 BAL Crick
DE
Nebraska
Crick has the size to play DE in the Ravens' 3-4 defense.  With Redding moving on in free agency, the Ravens need depth at that position.
PRIOR PICKS: OC Konz
61 SF Johnson
CB/FS
Montana
While many like Johnson as a corner, I can't get Deon Sanders comments about him at the Combine out of my head.  He said, in no uncertain terms, that Johnson had the movements skills of a safety, not a corner.  However, he remains high on most draft analysts boards as a corner.  I have him listed as the #3 safety in the draft.  With San Fran he starts playing in the nickel and or dime defenses, and down the road he can become a starter at corner or free safety.
PRIOR PICKS: OG Zeitler
62 NE Wolfe
DT
Cincinnati
Silatolu is now off the board.  So I now look for the Pats to draft a safety or defensive tackle.  There is better value at defensive tackle so it's Wolfe over Thompson and Martin as a better fit for the the Pats' 4-3 defense.
Last mock was OG Silatolu
PRIOR PICKS: DE Perry, CB Robinson, ILB Kendricks
63 NYG
Givens
WR
Wake Forest

While Childs is an interesting project, Givens is already the real deal.  He will be the Giants' third receiver.  Givens is an underrated prospect.
Last mock was WR Childs
PRIOR PICKS: RB Wilson

64 IND Ta'amu
DT
Washington
The Colts are switching to a 3-4 defense and need a big nose tackle for the middle of their defense.
PRIOR PICKS: QB Luck, TE Fleener

Nebraska
David is the top player on my board and immediately becomes the Rams best outside linebacker.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Blackmon, DT Reyes, CB Jenkins
66 MIN Hayward

Vanderbilt
After taking the tackle over the corner in round one, the Vikings draft a corner in round three.
PRIOR PICKS: OT Kalil, WR Jeffery
67 CLE Massie
OT
Mississippi
After drafting a thrower, catcher and runner, they need a blocker; especially one who can play right tackle.
PRIOR PICKS: RB Richardson, QB Weeden, WR Randle
68 TB Wagner

Utah State
I thought Foster was a miscast as a middle linebacker coming out of the draft last year; Wagner will be a better fit.
PRIOR PICKS: CB Claiborne, RB Miller
69 WAS Robinson
FS
Michigan St
Robinson has a nose for the ball and worked out well.  He is an underrated prospect.  
PRIOR PICKS: QB Griffin III
70 JAC Jenkins

Jenkins will battle Lee Evans for the right to start opposite Robinson.  Thomas moves to the slot.
PRIOR PICKS: CB Gilmour, DE Upshaw
71 BUF Cousins

MIchigan St
A player others have rated more highly than I do; Cousins can backup Fitzpatrick and provide insurance in case he doesn't return to form.

Childs has the potential to be a better player than jettisoned Brandon Marshall.

The Fins stay in state to get their next right tackle.
PRIOR PICKS: QB Tannehill, DE Curry, WR Childs
74 KC Winn
DE/DT
Boise State
Winn has the size and movement skills needed to play defensive end in the Chiefs' 3-4 defense.  Some may be surprised because of the names on the roster, but they were not very good against the run.
PRIOR PICKS: DT Poe, OT M Adams
75 SEA Irvin
West Virginia
DE/OLB
Irvin is a pass rush specialist who will only play on passing downs.  However, he can get after the quarterback and the Seahawks need to get more pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
PRIOR PICKS: OG DeCastro, ILB Hightower
76 HOU Brooks
CB
LSU
The Texans need depth behind Robinson and Jackson, as well as Jackson insurance.  Brooks is a prospect on the rise.
PRIOR PICKS: WR Hill, TE Allen
77 NYJ Rainey
RB/WR
Florida
The Jets need game-breakers on offense and Rainey can provide big plays in both the running game and as a receiver.  He can also help as a returner.
PRIOR PICKS: DE/OLB Ingram, WR Sanu
78 SD Martin
DE/DT
Michigan
Martin is a very strong kid who has the movement skills to play DE in the Chargers' 3-4 defense.
PRIOR PICKS: OLB Mercilus, RB James
79 CHI Jones
WR
California
Jones is a solid receiver who could push for significant playing time in his rookie year.
PRIOR PICKS: DE Coples, OG Silatolu
80 ARZ Allen
OT/OG
Arkansas
The Cardinals need more help than just Martin for their offensive line.  He could pair with Martin to be a long time answer at right tackle for the Cards.  Worst case Allen can slide into guard.
PRIOR PICKS: OT Martin
81 DAL Osemele
OG/OT
Iowa State
Osemele is a big kid with long arms and big hands who projects as a solid starting guard or right tackle in the NFL.
PRIOR PICKS: SS Barron, DE/DT Still
82 TEN Brown
OLB
North Carolina
Brown is a very fast linebacker who can challenge Witherspoon for the Titans' starting WILL.
PRIOR PICKS: OG/OT Glenn, Hosley CB
83 CIN Lewis
OLB/DE
Oklahoma
Lewis can come in and compete with Lawson for the starting SAM job. 
PRIOR PICKS: WR Floyd, CB Kirkpatrick, RB Turbin
84 ATL Johnson

Johnson hasn't exploded as a pass rusher yet, but you get the feeling watching him that he has it in him to be a very good pass rusher, something the Falcons need.

85 DET Bentley
CB
La Lafayette
Bentley is a little undersized, but has good speed and a nice skill set.
PRIOR PICKS: RB Martin, DE Jones

Brewster can play anywhere on the offensive line except left tackle.  He represents a potential upgrade at guard for the Steelers.
PRIOR PICKS: ILB Kuechly, RB Polk
87 DEN Coleman

Many are slotting Osweiler as the developmental quarterback behind Manning.  I see that player being Coleman who is a workaholic like Manning and will be patient sitting and learning.

88 PHI Pierce

Temple
The Eagles stay local to draft their young, big back to complement McCoy and Lewis.
PRIOR PICKS: DT Brockers, FS/SS Smith, CB Fleming
89 NO Thompson
DT
Clemson
With no first or second round pick, I expect the Saints to grab the highest player on their board to get the best value possible.  Thompson is the best value on my board and will be drafted even though they signed Bunkley.

Arizona State
With Flynn gone, it's time to groom their next backup quarterback.

91 BAL Massaquoi
OLB/DE

Massaquoi is an intriguing prospect as an outside linebacker for a 3-4.  
PRIOR PICKS: OC Konz, DE Crick
92 SF Jackson
DE/DT
Tennessee
Jackson has the athleticism to play defensive end in a 3-4.  He adds depth for the 49ers.
PRIOR PICKS: OG Zeitler, CB/FS T Johnson
93 NE Adams
WR
Arkansas
With Welker getting up in age and salary, Adams could be his replacement as soon as next year.
PRIOR PICKS: DE Perry, CB Robinson, ILB Kendricks, DT Wolfe
94 NYG Wade

Arizona
With the injuries the Giants suffered at cornerback last year, I suspect they will bring in a corner in the draft they believe can help if needed in the upcoming season.
PRIOR PICKS: RB Wilson, WR Givens
95 OAK Hanna
TE
Oklahoma
This speed/measureable pick for the memory of Al Davis (as well as for the needs of the Raiders).  After losing Miller in free agency, Oakland needs a tight end who can stretch the field; especially with the speed they have at wide receiver.  Hanna is fast, quick, strong, and a great athlete.  He has a tremendous upside as a play-making, pass-catching tight end.
