1. Houston Texans: Blake Bortles - QB - Central Florida
Houston is likely to take a QB with this pick and is rumored to be deciding between Bortles and Johnny Manziel. Manziel may be more exciting now, but Bortles has more pro potential.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from St. Louis): Sammy Watkins - WR - Clemson
The Bucs just shipped off one of their top WRs and are said to be high on Watkins.
Tampa Bay receives pick 2
St. Louis receives picks 7, 69, and 2015 First Round pick
3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jadeveon Clowney - DE - South Carolina
Gus Bradley continues to improve the defense and adds an elite prospect who could truly change a game.
4. Cleveland Browns: Johnny Manziel - QB - Texas A&M
Manziel is one of my least favorite prospects. He's a running QB and the saying always goes, you never see an old running QB in the NFL. However, Jimmy Haslem likes to make a splash and there's none bigger than landing Johnny Football.
5. Oakland Raiders: Jake Matthews - OT - Texas A&M
Oakland swung and missed on signing a long term LT but Matthews is the most pro ready OT prospect in recent memory.
6. Atlanta Falcons: Khalil Mack - OLB - Buffalo
The Falcons desperately need to upgrade their pass rush after spending big on both lines.
7. St. Louis Rams (from Tampa Bay): Greg Robinson - OT - Auburn
Jeff Fischer likes to run the ball, a lot. Robinson may be the best run blocking tackle in this draft.
8. Minnesota Vikings: Kony Ealy - DE - Mizzou
This may be a little high for Ealy but Minnesota just lost possible future Hall of Famer Jared Allen and need a long term replacement.
9. Buffalo Bills: Eric Ebron - TE - North Carolina
10. Detroit Lions: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix - S - Alabama
The Lions need secondary help in the worst way and Clinton-Dix, while overvalued, could step in immediately.
11. Tennessee Titans: Justin Gilbert - CB - Oklahoma State
Gilbert could be a perfect fit in Tennessee, who lost their best CB in free agency.
12. New York Giants: Taylor Lewan - OT - Michigan
Stupid off-field issues aside, Lewan can really play and giving Eli time to throw is a must.
13. St. Louis Rams: Mike Evans - WR - Texas A&M
This first round falls perfectly for St. Louis in getting Evans with this pick to pair opposite Tavon Austin.
14. Chicago Bears: Aaron Donald - DT - Pittsburgh
Chicago lost Henry Melton in free agency and needs a big, penetrating body in the middle.
15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Darqueze Dennard - CB - Michigan State
Dennard is a perfect fit for Dick LeBeau's aggressive defense.
16. Dallas Cowboys: Anthony Barr - OLB - UCLA
The Cowboys likely have a long-term replacement for Demarcus Ware.
17. Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Pryor - S - Louisville
Baltimore was terrible on the back end and with the depth of this draft at WR, they take the best safety available.
18. New York Jets: Odell Beckham, Jr. - WR - LSU
Beckham, Jr. gives Geno Smith a legitimate weapon on the outside but takes away an excuse for his underwhelming play.
19. Miami Dolphins: Zach Martin - OL - Notre Dame
Miami needs to revamp their line and Martin gives them flexibility after signing Branden Albert.
20. Arizona Cardinals: Jason Verrett - CB - Texas Christian
Verrett gives Arizona another physical CB to pair with Patrick Peterson.
21. Green Bay Packers: Louis Nix III - NT - Notre Dame
The Packers need a long-term replacement for B.J. Raji, who likely won't be back after next season.
22. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandin Cooks - WR - Oregon State
After releasing Desean Jackson, Philly needs to have a top WR to replace him.
23. Oakland Raiders (from Kansas City): Teddy Bridgewater - QB - Louisville
Looking at the tape, Bridgewater is the best QB in this class. However, he's been dinged by many on post-season testing. Oakland would be in good shape if this scenario plays out.
Oakland receives pick 23
Kansas City receives picks 36 and 67
24. Cincinnati Bengals: Dee Ford - DE - Auburn
The Bengals need to shore up their pass rush and Ford is a pass rush specialist.
25. San Diego Chargers: Bradley Roby - CB - Ohio State
Roby is a quality CB who had some setbacks last season. He could excel in the San Diego defense.
26. Cleveland Browns(via Indianapolis): C.J. Mosley - ILB - Alabama
Mosley is hard to predict because he could go anywhere in round 1 but it's highly unlikely he'd fall past Cleveland with their need at ILB.
27. New Orleans Saints: Ryan Shazier - OLB - Ohio State
Rob Ryan would love to have the ever versatile Shazier to utilize in his defense.
28. Minnesota Vikings (from Carolina): Derek Carr - QB - Fresno State
Minnesota trades back into round 1 to grab one of the better QBs in this draft.
Minnesota receives picks 28 and 124
Carolina receives picks 40 and 72
29. New England Patriots: Jace Amaro - TE - Texas Tech
This is probably one of the more logical picks in the first round, which means someone else will likely be drafted here.
30. San Francisco 49ers: Scott Crichton - DE - Oregon State
Crichton played hard and consistently all year for the Beavers and San Francisco always is up for more pass rushing talent.
31. Denver Broncos: Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
A surprise pick here but one of the main positions of need for the Broncos is ILB. Borland is the best prospect left and won't be around late in the second.
32. Seattle Seahawks: Kyle Fuller - CB - Virginia Tech
Fuller is a big, physical CB who would fit perfectly in Seattle's aggressive defense.
