Team

Player

Reason

1

Rams

Sam Bradford (QB) - Oklahoma

Franchise QB - he is the real deal

2

Lions

Russel Okung (OT) - Oklahoma State (5.17, 36", 38, 6'5'', 310)

Lions can grab a DT in the second round.  Protect your franchise QB

3

Bucs

Ndamakong Suh (DT) - Nebraska (4.98, 6'5'', 307)

Best player in the draft. Unique specimen.

4

Reskins

Trent Williams (OT) - Oklahoma (4.88, 34,25", 23, 6'5'', 315)

Perhaps better than Okung, and believed to have a greater ceiling - Michael Oher

5

Chiefs

Bryan Bulaga (OT) - Iowa (5.26, 33.25'', 26, 6'5'', 315)

Mechanically sound, high character prospect

6

Seahawks

Gerald McCoy (DT) - Oklahoma (4.96, 6'4'', 295)

Carrol is a defensive minded coach, and McCoy will be perfect for defensive scheme

7

Browns

Dan Williams (NT) - Tennessee (5.17, 6'2'', 327)

Rodgers will be released, Dan William's is a high character player who will anchor D

8

Raiders

Anthony Davis (OT) - Rutgers (5.35, 34", 21, 6'5'', 323)

Davis is incredible on tape, superior to Campbell and is the right prospect to take here

9

Eagles

Eric Berry (S) - Tennessee (4.4, 6', 211)

Eagles trade 1,2,5 for Buffalo 1, Lynch. Eagles have firepower to move up and take possibly the best player in the draft

10

Jaguars

Earl Thomas (S) - Texas (4.37, 5'10'', 208)

Ballhawking safety to improve a poor secondary

11

Broncos

Maurkice Pouncey (G/C) - Florida (5.23, 32.5, 6'4'', 304)

Sure, it's a bit high for a center but Maurkice Pouncey can play every position on the line except LT. Anchor O-line for years

12

Dolphins

Dez Bryant (WR) - Oklahoma State (4.54, 6'2'', 225)

Parcels has to sign off for Dez Bryant - he's too talented and this offense is basdly in need of a WR

13

49ers

Mike Iupati (G) - Idaho (5.26, 34.75, 27, 6'5'', 331)

Iupati can play guard, and RT - which both are needs for the 49ers

14

Broncos

Jared Odrick (DT) - Penn State (4.98, 6'5'', 304)

Broncos trade Marshall and 2nd for Seahawks 1 - Seahawks get play maker and Broncos fortify their defensive line

15

Chargers

C.J. Spiller (RB) - Clemson (4.37, 5'11'', 196)

Chargers trade 1st and 2nd for Giants 1st. Chargers move up and grab the best RB in draft

16

Titans

Derrick Morgan (DE) - Georgia Tech (4.72, 6'3'', 266)

Best DE in this year's draft - help fortify the defensive line

17

49ers

Joe Haden (CB) - Florida (4,57, 5'11'', 193)

Best corner falls into the 49ers laps - improve an aging secondary

18

Steelers

Kyle Wilson (CB) - Boise State (__, 5'10'', 194)

Improve an aging secondary.  High character player with good instincts

19

Falcons

Rolondo McClain (LB) - Alabama (4.69, 6'3'', 250)

McClain can play outside lineback in a 4-3 and play inside if need be. 

20

Texans

Ryan Mathews (RB) - Fresno State (4.41, 6', 218)

Texans snag Mathews - perfect fit for their zone blocking scheme

21

Bengals

Jermaine Gresham (TE) - Oklahoma (4.76, 6'5'', 260)

Bengals have other needs but this will make stopping their offense even that much more difficult

22

Patriots

Sergio Kindle (OLB) - Texas (4.65, 6'3'', 250)

Possibly the best linebacker in draft - instantly improves pass rush

23

Packers

Brandon Graham (DE) - Michigan (4.69, 6'1'', 268)

Graham can play 3-4 outside lineback.  Packers have other needs but they need to improve their pass rush - as evident in the playoffs

24

Bills

Jimmy Clausen (QB) - Notre Dame

Clausen's proday was beautiful.  Clausen's mechanics are incredible and he is ready to play now

25

Ravens

Jason Pierre-Paul (DE) - South Florida (4.64, 6'5'', 270)

Raw but extremely talented prospect - get a chance to learn from the best.  Perfect fit for JPP

26

Cardinals

Jerry Hughes (OLB) - TCU (4.59, 6'2'', 254)

Improve 3-4 OLB position and pass rush - which was non-existent against the Cardinals

27

Cowboys

Nate Allen (S) - South Florida (__, 6', 207)

Cowboys need to improve the safety position.  Alen is a ballhawk

28

Giants

Brian Price (DT) - UCLA (5.13, 6'1'', 303)

Price is a perfect fit for Fewel's tampa two scheme.  He's fast, athletic, and makes plays in the backfield

29

Jets

Sean Weatherspoon (LB) - Missouri (4.52, 6'1'', 240)

May not be a 4-3 prospect - but Weatherspoon is FAST and Jets need to improve their pass rush. He has room to gain weight

30

Vikings

Devin McCourty (CB) - Rutgers (4.34, 5'11'', 193)

McCourty can play man and zone defense.  He is fast, has good size, and strong.

31

Colts

Taylor Mays (S) - USC (4.3, 6'3'', 230)

I don't care what others say - Mays is a perfect fit for this defense.  Fast and hard hitting. And his size will be VERY BENEFICIAL for this D

32

Saints

Carlos Dunlap (DE) - Florida (4.66, 6'6'', 280)

Dunlap has everything.  Size, speed, strength, and athletics.  Help improve Saints D-line and pass rush

 

 

 

 

1

Rams

Everson Griffen (DE) - USC (4.64, 6'3'', 275)

It will be up to the coordinators to get his motivation and work ethic up. But his potential is vast

2

Redskins

Terrence Cody (DT) - Alabama (5.62, 6'4'', 349)

Redskins trade Hansworth for Lions 2nd

3

Bucs

Demaryius Thomas (WR) - Georgia Tech (4.6, 6'3'', 225)

Bucs need a number one reciever, after loosing Bryant.  Some even think that Thomas is superior to Bryant

4

Chiefs

Chad Jones (S) - LSU (4.57, 6'2'', 221)

Improve secondary at the safety position.  Berry was possibility earlier but LT was more important

5

Bills

Jahvid Best (RB) - California (4.35, 5'10'', 200)

With Lynch trade - need RB.  Best will be perfect compliment to Fred Jackson

6

Browns

Colt McCoy (QB) - Texas

Browns need a QB to compete with Delhomme

7

Raiders

Chris Cook (CB) - Virginia (4.43, 6'2'', 212)

Size, speed, and has the ability to play corner and free safety.

8

Giants

Brandon Spikes (LB) - Florida (___, 6'3'', 250)

40 time means crap.  Spikes is an excellent LB. Has size and instincts and will improve Giants defense in pass and rush

9

Bills

Charles Brown (OT) - USC (__, 35.25", 21, 6'5'', 303)

Bills get an excellent LT prospect to protect Clausen's blindside

10

Bucs

Kareem Jackson (CB) - Alabama (4.41, 5'10'', 196)

Jackson has moved up boards, some believe he's better than McCourty

11

Dolphins

Daryl Washington (LB) - TCU (4.54, 6'2'', 230)

Even with big time signing, a LB is still a need especially with Jason Taylors probable departure

12

Patriots

Rob Gronkowski (TE) - Arizona (__, 6'6'', 265)

Strong, physical tight end to improve run and pass game. Welker is coming back from injury and Moss is getting old

13

Seahawks

Rodger Safford (OT) - Indiana (5.22, 33.5", 27, 6'5'', 313)

Safford will become Walter replacement

14

Giants

Bruce Campbell (OT) - Maryland (4.85, 36.25, 34, 6'6'', 315)

Campbell is an athletic freak and with the right coaching can tap into his potential.  Giants need an upgrade at RT

15

Patriots

Lamarr Houston (DT) - Texas (4.85, 6'3'', 305)

Houston will improve D-line and make up for Seymours loss

16

Panthers

Arrelious Benn (WR) - Illinois (4.48, 6'1'', 220)

Panthers have a need a DT, but also need a WR to play along with Steve Smith

17

49ers

Major Wright (S) - Florida (4.49, 5'11'', 206)

49ers continue to build their defense - a KR and change of pace back can be selected later.  Wright is a polished safety

18

Chiefs

Cam Thomas (NT) - North Carolina (5.27, 6'4'', 330)

Chiefs need a proper NT to anchor their 3-4 defense.  Thomas is rated 1st round potential on some boards

19

Texans

Patrick Robinson (CB) - Florida State (4.42, 5'11'', 190)

With Daunte gone, Texans get another Robinson to fill the void at CB.  Can play well in zone or man

20

Steelers

Vladimir Ducasse (OT) - Umass (5.2, 34.75", 29, 6'4'', 333)

Big Ben was sacked way to much last season - need to upgrade the o-line - especially inside

21

Patriots

Jared Veldheer (OT) - Hillsdale (5.09, 33", 32, 6'8'', 312)

Valdheer is an athletic freak and can play pretty much any position on the line.  Patriots need an upgrade on their O-line

22

Bengals

Morgan Burnett (S) - Georgia Tech (__. 6'1'', 209)

Burnett is a physican safety and will improve Bengals defense against the pass and against the run

23

Eagles

Jon Asamoah (G) - Illinois (33', 6'4'', 305)

Eagles releaed Shawn Andrews - need a replacement

24

Packers

Toby Gerhart (RB) - Stanford (4.53, 6', 231)

Packers need to improve their end zone offense, and a big physical back like Gerhart is perfect

25

Ravens

Aaron Hernandez (TE) - Florida (__, 6'2'', 245)

Ravens need a TE and Hernandez is a fantastic offensive weapon

26

Cardinals

Tony Washington (OT) - Abilene Christian (5.19, 35.5", 33, 6'6'', 311)

Need an upgrade at LT with recent retirement of Mike Gandy

27

Cowboys

Jason Fox (OT) - Miami (__, 34.5",__, 6'7'', 305)

Flozel Adams was released.  Jason Fox has the potential to be very good, and should fit just fine on Cowboys O-line

28

Seahawks

Tim Tebow (QB) - Florida

Have a few other needs - but Carrol would love Tebow's competitive nature and get the best out of him - doesn't matter if they have Charlie

29

Jets

Golden Tate (WR) - Notre Dame (4.36, 5'11'', 195)

Jets need more weapons for Sanchez and improve their special teams

30

Vikings

Joe McKnight (RB) - USC (4.42, 5'11'', 198)

Perfect change in pace back to Peterson.  This seams like a dream matchup

31

Colts

Tyson Alualu (DT) - California (4.87, 6'3'', 295)

Many boards have Aluala rated in the first round.  Perfect fit for Colts defensive strategy, and great value at this point

32

Saints

Montario Hardesty  (RB) - Tennessee (4.49, 6', 225)

Saints love running the ball, and lost Bell in Free Agency.  Hardesty will be a great fit.
