Hyatt's one and only First Round Mock Draft

Figure I should give my thoughts in here, because as a Chosen Person on Easter, I don't have much to do.

Carolina- Cam Newton, QB- seems to be a lock at this point.

Denver- Patrick Peterson CB- Elway looks at this defense, and gets nauseus. He and Fox won't be afraid to pull the trigger on the best talent in the draft

Buffalo- Marcel Darius DL- The Bills look to get success from the Alabama well where they got Cornelius Bennett 24 years ago.  Darius will definitely help the Bills rebuild their terrible defense

Cincinnati- AJ Green WR- Coin flip between him and Julio Jones.  They may take Jones as they feel he's a better fit, but I think Green is the best choice for them.

Arizona- Von Miller OLB- The Cards really like Andy Dalton, more so than Gabbert, and probably will get him in the 2nd round. The attention turns to the anemic pass rush, and they become the beneficiary of Denver's surprise pick.

Cleveland- Julio Jones WR- Holmgren likes taking WRs in the first round, and Jones fits their scheme as a nice blocking WR and elite athelete.

San Francisco- Robert Quinn DE- I'm pretty sure that similar to the Cards, the 9ers are going to pass on a QB and take some improvement to their pass rush

Tennessee Titans- Nick Fairley, DT- The titans have been slim on the interior D-line since Haynesworth left 2 years ago, so now they get Haynesworth 2.0, complete with character questions

Dallas Cowboys- Tyron Smith OT- The Cowboys need help now on the OL, but they choose a developmental prospect in Smith.  I think the Rams may trade up and grab JJ Watt, but assuming they don't, this is the pick.

Washington Redskins- Blaine Gabbert QB- The Skins have been enamored with JJ Watt, but they won't pass on Gabbert if he falls this far, as he does in my scenario

Houston Texans- JJ Watt DT/DE- The Texans think the way to improve their Pass D is going to be improving their pass rush, and Watt fits that bill.  

Minnesota Vikings- DaQuan Bowers DE- Vikes want to improve their pass rush as well, and Bowers, despite the injury risk, is the most talented rush guy in the draft.  

Detroit Lions- Prince Anakamura CB- The lions biggest need is filled with a guy who's ready to roll as soon as he hits the field as a starter.  

St. Louis Rams- Cameron Jordan DE- If Julio Jones doesn't fall to 9, the Rams will look to improve their pass rush, as spags loves coming at the QB.

Miami Dolphins- Mark Ingram, RB- With Ricky Williams old, and a FA, The dolphins go to the best RB in the draft to pair with Ronnie Brown.

Jacksonville- Ryan Kerrigan, DE- IT's either Aldon smith or Kerrigan here, and I think Kerrigan fits the Jags better.

New England- Aldon Smith, DE- Smith has the DL versatility the pats like, and can definitely hold up nicely next to Wilfork.

San Diego- Adrian Clayborn, DE- Makes sense for SD to keep their D building

New York Giants- Anthony Costanzo, OT- The giants are looking to improve their O-line, and I think that they'll go Tackle before they would choose Pouncey.

Tampa Bay- Muhammed Wilkerson DE- The D-Line has been a priority for the Bucs to get pressure on Ryan and Brees 4 times a year.

Kansas City- Greg Camiri, OT- The chiefs need a ROT, and Camiri can be slotted in from day one.

Indianapolis- Mike Pouncey, OG- The Colts want to upgrade their line, and their running game, and Pouncey does both on the inside, returning to his natural guard position.

Philadelphia- Jimmy Smith, CB- Seems like the right fit with Ellis Hobbs retiring, and suspect depth at the position

New Orleans- Stephen Paea, DT- The saints think this workout warrior can help them pressure the QB.

Seattle- Corey Liuget, DT- The Seahawks are not in a position to really draft for need, being that no one matches up their needs at this point, so getting a top 20 talent in Liuget is the best scenario for them

Baltimore- Brandon Harris, CB- With just about every DE they want taken, the Raven go for a different need fill with Harris.  I fully expect them to trade down with a team looking to snatch their favorite 2nd tier QB (49ers, Bills, or Cards).

Atlanta- Danny Watkins, OG- A 2nd guard taken in the first round? Sure, why not

New England- Akeem Ayers, OLB- The pats use their 2nd pick to enhance the pass rush.

Chicago- Derrek Sherrod, OT- The Bears need some more protection for a cutler to toss his horribly misplaced passes to the other team.

New York Jets- Justin Houston DE/OLB- Jets look to the strength of this draft to help their team.

Pittsburgh Steelers- Aaron Williams, CB- The steelers over-react to being ripped apart in the Super Bowl by Aaron Rodgers

Your SUPER BOWL CHAMPION GREEN BAY PACKERS!!!- Brooks Reed, Ari- The Packers have been enamored with Reed for awhile, and they get their man.
