1

Panthers

Nick Fairley (DT/DE) - 6'5'' 298lb - Auburn

The Panthers need to build a more aggressive and powerful defensive front - and Rivera will want to do that with Carolina just like he did with the Chargers.  Fairley is the man.

2

Broncos

Da'Quan Bowers (DE) - 6'4'' 280lb - Clemson

The Broncos were dead last in sacks and ranked 31 in rush defense.  The defensive line needs talent and significant improvements.  Bowers is the best DE in the nation - and will be perfect in John Fox scheme.

3

Bills

Patrick Peterson (CB) - 6'1'' 222lb - LSU

As much as the Bills need a defensive line man - Peterson is too good to pass up.  Period

4

Bengals

AJ Green (WR) - 6'4'' 200lb - Georgia

Carson Palmer and Marvin Lewis are back - TO-Ochocinco are not.  Green is the best player available and gives Palmer a weapon opposite Jordan

5

Cardinals

Robert Quinn (DE/OLB) - 6'5'' 265lb - UNC

Cardinals will find a veteran QB.  The Cardinals need to improve their pass rush - and their rush defense as it ranked 30th in the league.

6

Browns

Julio Jones (WR) - 6'4'' 210lb - Alabama

The Browns need to find Colt McCoy a big time WR to throw to.

7

49ers

Blaine Gabbert (QB) - 6'5'' 240lb - Missouri

Haurbaugh's next QB prospect.  Tape shows that he is as good as advertised but needs alot of work

8

Titans

Marcell Dareus (DT/DE) - 6'3'' 306lb - Alabama

The Titans defense has not been the same since the departure of Hansworth.  Dareus is a perfect replacement.

9

Cowboys

Prince Amukamara (CB) - 6'1'' 200lb - Nebraska

Jason Garret can go either defensive back or offensive tackle.  I have him taking an elite CB - OT can come in the second round.

10

Redskins

Cam Newton (QB) - 6'6'' 246lb - Auburn

Shanahan needs to choose his QB and Newton is the guy.  He's a work in progress.  HUGE.  - but Shanahan can mold him into the type of QB he wants.

11

Texans

Justin Houston (OLB) - 6'3'' 254lb - Georgia

Wade Phillips will implement a 3-4 defense in Houston and will take a rush OLB to feature in his new defense.

12

Vikings

Stephen Paea (DT) - 6'1'' - Oregon State

Vikings will find a veteran QB in the offseason.  Frazier is a defensive coach - and will eventually need a replacement for Pat Williams.

13

Lions

Akeem Ayers (OLB) - 6'3'' 254lb - UCLA

Lions have a weakness at OLB and CB.  CB can come later - Ayers is a top notch OLB prospect.

14

Rams

Jonathan Baldwin (WR) - 6'5'' 220lb - Pittsburgh

The Rams need to find Bradford a franchise WR to throw to.

15

Dolphins

Mark Ingram (RB) - 5'10'' 215lb - Alabama

No Williams.  No Ronnie BRown.  Chad Henne has one more year to prove himself.  Not a bad thing for the Dolphins I think.

16

Jaguars

Aldon Smith (DE) - 6'4'' 258lb - Missouri

The Jaguars continue to build a young talented defensive line with a stud pass rusher

17

Patriots

Cameron Heyward (DT/DE) - 6'6'' 287lb - Ohio St.

Heyward's bowl performance was admirable - and will be a perfect fit for a tough Patriots defensive line

18

Chargers

Cameron Jordan (DT/DE) - 6'4'' 290lb - Cal

Chargers have a top ranked defense - which can be further fortifed by adding depth and talent to the DL

19

Giants

Derek Sherrod (OT) - 6'6'' 300lb - Miss St.

The offensive line has issues.  Sherrod is a physical offensive tackle that can really bring stablitiy to the LT position

20

Bucs

Adrian Clayborn (DE) - 6'4'' 285lb - Iowa

The Bucs continue to build their young defensive line by adding Clayborn next to McCoy

21

Chiers

Von Miller (OLB) - 6'2'' 240lb - Texas A&M

There are a few issues here for the Chiefs defense.  Tamba Hali is a free agent and the veterans have not played to their potential  Von Miller can add pressure to this young and energetic defensive unit.

22

Colts

Nate Solder (OT) - 6'9'' 305lb - Colorado

The Colts need to do everything in their power to protect Peyton Manning - who has yet to sign a contract extension.

23

Eagles

Mike Pouncey (G) - 6'5'' 320lb - Florida

Eagles have to improve the interior of their offensive line.

24

Saints

Jurrell Casey (DT) - 6'1'' 305lb - USC

Saints don't have many glaring weaknesses but adding a big stout DT to help their rush defense is most ideal.

25

Seahawks

Brandon Harris (CB) - 5'11'' 195lb - Miami

Seahawks need improvements in their secondary.

26

Ravens

Anthony Castonzo (OT) - 6'7'' 308lb - BC

Gather is a free agent.  The Ravens had a tough time with the Steelers offensive line.  The Ravens will have two stout offensive tackles on their line with Castonzo and Oher

27

Falcons

Kyle Rudolph (TE) - 6'6'' 265lb - Notre Dame

The Falcons need to find Matt Ryan another weapon.  DB is also an option here but Rudolph is the top TE in the class - and Gonzalez might be on his way out

28

Patriots

Jimmy Smith (CB) - 6'2'' 205lbs - Colorado

Patriots ranked 30th in pass defense - regardless of the great play of McCourty.  Smith can partner up with Devin and improve this secondary.

29

Bears

Gabe Carimi - (OT) - 6'7'' 315lb - Wisconsin

This pick is automatic for like all drafts - but makes too much sense.  Whoever the best OT prospect is at this point will be taken.

30

Jets

JJ Watt (DT/DE) - 6'6'' 292lb - Wisconsi

The Jets need to add depth to theiir defensive line - and JJ Watt is the best player available at this point.  It will help improve an already solid defense.

31

Packers

Allen Bailey (DT/DE) - 6'4'' 285lb - Miami

Give Capers another player to add pressure to the defense.  The Packers have a great roster - and adding more players to help Clay Matthews will make them even better.

32

Steelers

Aaron Williams (CB) - 6'1'' 195lbs - Texas

The Steelers corners are their weakness.  They need to add a stout defensive back to help their secondary in the passing game.  Troy can't do everything!
