Reviewing, I think there will probably be more trades, especially in the 2nd round, and it seems that QBs and OTs should probably be going higher. Oh well. 1 Kansas City - Luke Joekel OT Texas A&M - I don't really understand why some mockers are giving them Fisher. Yes, Fisher has upside. Give me the guy who dominated week in, week out in the SEC. 2 PROJECTED TRADE Jacksonville flips this pick to the Raiders for the #3 pick and a later exchange of picks irrelevant to a two-round mock draft. The Raiders, mindful of the possibility of teams like Arizona and Buffalo leapfrogging them, move up a spot to get Geno Smith QB West Virginia 3 Jacksonville (from Oakland) - Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan 4 Philadelphia - Dion Jordan DE Oregon - It would be surprising if Chip Kelly didn't add some players he is familiar to the locker room. Plus, Jordan's upside is through the roof as a moveable chesspiece. 5 Detroit - Dee Milliner CB Alabama - Schwartz's heart would probably prefer adding a puss rusher like Ansah here, but his head knows how bad his secondary is. 6 PROJECTED TRADE Cleveland trades this pick to the Dolphins for the #12 pick and a later exchange of picks irrelevant to a two-round mock draft. The Dolphins, having watched Jake Long leave, trade up to draft Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma 7 Arizona - Matt Barkley QB Southern California - Bruce Arians may genuinely like Drew Stanton as a starter, but even he knows that it's not a long-term solution. 8 Buffalo - Sharrif Floyd DT Florida - Nassib seems to be the consensus here, but I'm going to go on the assumption that Buffalo makes a move at quarterback before the draft (Carson Palmer, perhaps?) and fills a defensive need instead. If the Bills QB depth chart still reads T Jackson, A Corp, B Smith come the draft, I think they'll be forced to go QB here. 9 NY Jets - Ezekiel Ansah DE Brigham Young - Most think Ansah will be gone by now. And there's a good chance he will. I don't think there's any way he drops past Rex Ryan, though. 10 Tennessee - Star Lotulelei DT Utah - It seems he and his doctors are comfortable with his heart, and Tennessee gets a star on D. 11 San Diego - Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee - I think Philip Rivers is done. However, the new regime in San Diego seems committed to getting better around him and see if that doesn't resurrect him. They've done a good -- no, a great job improving the offensive line in the offseason, now they need to improve the skill positions. Malcom Floyd is a good player, but not anybody's idea of a #1 wide out. Robert Meachem seems to be a bad fit, if not exposed as a bad player. Patterson gives them what they need. 12 Cleveland (from Miami) - Bjoern Werner DE Florida St 13 PROJECTED TRADE Tampa Bay trades this pick to the Steelers for the 17th pick and a later exchange of picks irrelevant to a two-round mock draft. The Steelers, whether or not Emmanuel Sanders is playing for them, need a WR to start on Week 1. As long as his medicals check out, there nothing not to like about Keenan Allen WR California to fill that need. The Steelers can make a modest trade-up, as the next three teams might be considering a WR. 14 Carolina - Sheldon Richardson DT Missouri 15 New Orleans - Barkevious Mingo DE LSU - Mingo is my pick for the bust of the first round. I don't think he's very good, and if his name were more common, he probably wouldn't be so highly regarded. Barkevious Jones would be a third rounder. 16 St. Louis - Tavon Austin WR West Virginia - Could do what Danny Amendola used to do for them. On the off-chance that management feels that the group of Austin Pettis, Chris Givens, and Brian Quick can be improved upon. 17 Tampa Bay (from Pittsburgh) - Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame - The Bucs are able to trade down and get their target at a more appropriate slot. 18 Dallas - Kenny Vaccaro S Texas - This is shaping up to be the no-brainer of the first round. 19 NY Giants - Xavier Rhodes CB Florida St 20 Chicago - Chance Warmack G Alabama - The O-line rebuild continues in Chitown. 21 Cincinnati - DJ Fluker OT Alabama - This pick will obviously change if their incumbent right tackle from Alabama returns. 22 PROJECTED TRADE St. Louis trades this pick to Tampa Bay for the #43 pick and a later exchange of picks irrelevant to a two-round mock draft. The Buccaneers need a corner pretty badly, and they know the quality will drop off very soon. They take Desmond Trufant CB Washington. 23 Minnesota - The Vikings tab Johnathan Banks CB Mississippi St to replace Antonio Winfield. See explanation above. 24 Indianapolis - Jesse Williams DT Alabama - The Colts continue to evolve to a 3-4, and tab Williams as their solution in the middle. 25 Minnesota - Jonathan Cooper G North Carolina 26 Green Bay - Jarvis Jones LB Georgia 27 Houston - Robert Woods WR Southern California - Maybe I can now stop feeling sorry for Andre Johnson. 28 Denver - Tank Carradine DE Florida St - Cornellius should be able to give them some of what they lost when Elvis left the building. 29 PROJECTED TRADE (shocker) - New England trades this pick to Buffalo for the #41 pick, a fourth rounder, and a 2014 2nd. Buffalo grabs Ryan Nassib QB Syracuse. Buffalo's gamble pays off, as they trade up ahead of the other QB-needy teams coming at the top of the 2nd, knowing that BB would be open to a trade, given his lack of picks this year. 30 Atlanta - Sam Montgomery DE LSU 31 San Francisco - David Amerson CB North Carolina St - Don't think that Jim Harbaugh hasn't noticed what Seattle is doing up North. 32 Baltimore - Alec Ogletree LB Georgia. I'm sorry, but if anybody is expecting Manti Te'o to replace Ray Lewis, it's not happening. Ever. 2nd Round 33 Jacksonville - Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina 34 San Francico - Kawann Short DT Purdue 35 Philadelphia - Jamar Taylor CB Boise St 36 Detroit - Datone Jones DE UCLA 37 Cincinnati - Damontre Moore DE Texas A&M 38 Arizona - EJ Manuel QB Florida St - In this division, it seems one needs a dual-threat QB. Manuel could be the steal of the draft. 39 NY Jets - Mike Glennon QB North Carolina St 40 Tennessee Manelik Watson OT Florida St 41 New England (from Buffalo) Markus Wheaton WR Oregon St I like Wheaton here over a cornerback or defensive linemen. However, I'd certainly entertain the thought of a Sanders Commings, DJ Hayden, Robert Alford, Leon Mcfadden or Margus Hunt 42 Miami - Eddie Lacy RB Alabama 43 St. Louis (from Tampa Bay) - Jonathan Cyprien S Florida International - To compete with Seattle and San Francisco, St. Louis is going to need to improve the middle of their defense. This is a great pick for them if Cyprien is available. 44 Carolina - Justin Hunter WR Tennessee 45 San Diego - Justin Pugh OL Syracuse 46 St. Louis - DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson - St. Louis can stand a WR double-dip, especially as Hopkins could be the BPA right now. 47 Dallas - Jordan Poyer CB Oregon St 48 Pittsburgh - Corey Lemonier LB Auburn - He seems to be one of those off-the-shelf Pittsburgh linebackers that Dick Lebeau finds semi-annually. 49 NY Giants - Kevin Minter LB LSU 50 Chicago - Manti Te'o LB Notre Dame 51 Washington - Manti Te'o's girlfriend GF Parts Unknown I kid, I kid. Brandon Jenkins LB Florida St 52 Minnesota - Johnathan Hankins DT Ohio St 53 Cincinnati - Andre Ellington RB Clemson - Makes sense to pair with Green-Ellis, and ultimately become the lead dog. 54 Miami - Eric Reid S LSU 55 Green Bay - Brennan Williams OT North Carolina 56 Seattle - Arthur Brown LB Kansas St 57 Houston - Landry Jones QB Oklahoma 58 Denver - Tyler Bray QB Tennessee 59 PROJECTED TRADE (shocker) - New England trades this pick to the Ravens for #62 and a late pick. The Ravens leapfrog the Falcons, as both have lost their starting centers this offseason. The pick is Barrett Jones C Alabama. 60 Atlanta - Hugh Thornton G Illinois - Which makes Atlanta's play to shift Peter Konz to center and draft Thornton to step in at guard. 61 San Francisco - Vance McDonald TE Rice - Nicely replaces Delanie Walker on the roster. 62 New England (from Baltimore) - Leon McFadden CB San Diego St - There may be more highly-rated corners available, but I don't know if any of them are a better fit than McFadden. Other considerations are Hunt, John Jenkins, and I think Belichick could be eyeing the Honey Badger right about now.
