Trade #1 - Dallas trades it's #9 overall to New England for it's #17 overall, #60 overall, and #92 overall.
Trade #2 - Buffalo trades it's 2nd (#34 overall), it's first fourth rounder (#99 overall) and 6th rounder (#164 overall) to Atlanta for their first round pick (#27 overall).
1. Carolina - Da'Quan Bowers DE - The #1 pick, in my mind, is Fairley's or Bowers to lose. Who Carolina picks might come down to offseason workouts and interviews, and I think Bowers will edge Fairley out.
2. Denver - Nick Fairley DT - No brainer pick if available.
3. Buffalo - Patrick Peterson CB - This is the same team that picked C.J. Spillers at #10 overall and didn't play him much. Who knows what to predict.
4. Cincinnati - A.J. Green WR - The campaign to appease Carson Palmer is culminated with this amazing WR
5. Arizona - Von Miller OLB - Arizona adds a much needed edge rusher.
6. Cleveland - Marcel Dareus DT - The Browns lose out on A.J. Green but find a worthwhile alternative.
7. San Francisco - Prince Amukamara CB - Tough, physical, and in the mold of a Harbaugh player.
8. Tennessee - Blaine Gabbert QB - This pick will get a lukewarm reception from Titan's fans but Gabbert has to go somewhere early and Tennessee is as good a fit as any.
9. New England (from Dallas) - Robert Quinn OLB - New England lands a very solid player and makes a trade with Dallas that benefits both teams.
10. Washington - Julio Jones WR - After deciding on a QB through trade or free agency, Washington ignores their defensive needs and takes the best player available.
11. Houston - Aldon Smith OLB - With no CB or S that appeals here, Houston takes this stud for their new 3-4.
13. Detroit - Nate Solder OT - The Lions pass on any CB and take someone they hope can protect Stafford.
14. St. Louis - Cameron Jordan DE - With no stud WR still available, the Rams take the best defensive player available.
15. Miami - Ryan Mallet QB - Miami can't resist Mallet's strong arm and take a risk with a questionable QB
16. Jacksonville - Ryan Kerrigan DE - The Jags can't get to the QB and Kerrigan can, even better than Adrian Clayborn.
17. Dallas - Gabe Carimi OT - Dallas lands the player they were targeting all along. Solid pick, and Romo is very happy.
18. San Diego - J.J. Watt DE - The Chargers very good defense just gets better. Scary thought.
19. New York Giants - Jimmy Smith CB - A CB who is 6'2" over 200lbs and can run a low 4.4? His college stats were impressive too. He won't last much longer than this.
20. Tampa Bay - Adrian Clayborn DE - Though I am not a big fan of Clayborn's, his physical talents and production are hard to overlook. He will be a solid 4-3 DE
21. Kansas City - Akeem Ayers OLB - The Chiefs pick a guy who has a lot of raw ability but was miscast at UCLA. Ayers can do just about anything. Can rush, cover, and tackle, though plays soft often.
22. Indianapolis - Anthony Castonzo OT - The Colts offensive line needs more help than Rosie O'donnell at a beauty pageant.
23. Philadelphia - Derek Sherrod OT - Very good OT here who can step in immediately.
25. Seattle - Cameron Heyward DE - The Seahawks land some much needed help up front and pass on Locker in the first.
26. Baltimore - Jonathan Baldwin WR - The Ravens draft a stud WR to "grow" with Flacco.
27. Buffalo (from Atlanta) - Justin Houston OLB - Buffalo jumps the Jets, the Pats, and Green Bay and lands a very solid 3-4 OLB.
28. New England - Mike Pouncey OG - No more concerns with LG.
29. Chicago - Tyron Smith OT - Tyron Smith falls because of his size, or lack thereof.
30. New York Jets - Rahim Moore S - The Jets, believe it or not, take another DB, this time hoping for a playmaker.
31. Green Bay - Ben Ijalena OT - From what I have read, Ijalena can play tackle or guard effectively.
32. Pittsburgh - Brandon Harris CB - The Steelers land a decent CB to add to their already amazing defense.
33. New England - Cory Liuget DT - A quality 5 technique and the third quality player for the Patriots in this draft.
34. Atlanta - Kyle Rudolph TE - Atlanta lands the player they targeted all along, and they get him in the second.
35. Cincinnati - Stephen Paea DT - The Bengals forsake greater needs elsewhere and take the best player available
36. Denver - Phil Taylor DT - The "new" Phil Taylor is a ripped 330 and can be very effective in Denver's new 4-3.
37. Cleveland - Titus Young WR - The Browns attempt to give Colt McCoy a new deep threat. However, can Colt throw deep?
38. Arizona - Aaron Williams CB - Arizona lands a decent CB to help shore up their woeful team. They probably go the free agent route for QB.
39. Tennessee - Leonard Hankerson WR - With this solid WR, the Titans have the makings of a solid team, on paper.
40. Dallas - Steve Wisniewski C - Dallas adds the best center in the draft, and at #40, a good value.
41. Washington - Martez Wilson LB - Wilson can rush the QB or play on the inside too. OLB or ILB?
42. Houston - DeAndre McDaniel SS - Houston addresses it's horrible secondary with a solid second round selection
43. Minnesota - Muhammad Wilkerson DT - Wilkerson slides more than expected for two reasons. 1) He is raw 2) There has already been tons of d-linemen picked
44. Detroit - Torrey Smith WR - The Lions can't find a CB they like and address it through free agency. In the meantime, they land DHB part two! Actually, a solid deep threat for Stafford.
45. San Francisco - Mikel Leshoure RB - I think Leshoure is a little overvalued in the late first. I like him in the early second and I think he can fit the 49ers mold.
46. Denver - Mason Foster LB - Denver lands one of my favorite players in the draft. Foster is a tackling machine who brings the wood and is undervalued in coverage.
47. St. Louis - Randall Cobb WR - A very speedy and explosive threat for Sam Bradford.
48. Oakland - Marvin Austin DT - The Raiders, big surprise, take a chance on this character risk.
49. Jacksonville - Quinton Carter FS - The Jags land a solid safety who can contribute immediately.
50. San Diego - Danny Watkins OT - Watkins is a very underrated player who might help Ryan Matthews develop as much as anybody.
51. Tampa Bay - Rodney Hudson OG/C - The Bucs take a chance on this undersized but talented player. C or OG?
52. New York Giants - Bruce Carter OLB - Though Carter could possibly slip to the third, his talent is of the first round variety.
53. Indianapolis - Drake Nevis DT - Nevis would be a decent fit for the Colts and at #53, is a steal.
54. Philadelphia - K.J. Wright OLB - The Eagles take a stud of a player who many people have not heard of.
55. Kansas City - Jerrel Jernigan WR - Jernigan is possibly the best player available and matches up perfectly with the Chiefs needs. This WR class is showing itself to be pretty deep.
56. New Orleans - Christian Ballard DE - Ballard's best fit is as a 4-3 DE and he lands in a great place.
57. Seattle - Jake Locker QB - Seatlle sweats it out and finally lands their QB. I don't think he will be good though.
58. Baltimore - Curtis Brown CB - The Ravens draft a CB who is starter quality.
59. Atlanta - Pernell McPhee DE - Pernell McPhee is an underrated stud who fits with the Falcons nicely.
60. Dallas (From New England) - Allen Bailey DE - I think Allen Bailey is a horrible football player but if coached up, he might have the tools to succeed.
61. San Diego - Deunta Williams FS - If the Chargers lose Eric Weddle, this pick becomes more important. Williams could slide to the third, or maybe the fourth. He has second round talent.
62. Chicago - William Rackley OG - The Bears fortify their O-line even more and find a guard that might prevent Cutler from hurting his other knee.
63. Green Bay - Ryan Williams RB - The Packers land a RB that, with the emergence of Starks, might not be the biggest need, but this talent is hard to pass on.
64. Pittsburgh - Jason Pinkston OG - Hometown boy plays next to Maurkice Pouncey for the next ten years. Good value, big need, good pick.
