My Picks: 

Key Needs:

Team Moves:

1.

Chiefs

Star Lotulelei-

DT Utah

6-4, 325, , 

 

DE, WR, CB, QB,  

Last Years F.A.:

Dwayne Bowe WR

Stanford Rout CB

Kevin Boss TE

Peyton Hillis RB

F.A. Lost:

Demorrio Williams LB

The Team: The Chiefs had a total break down last season. They need a reboot, and their is no QB worth the top pick in the Draft. The closest is Matt Barkley, who throws amazingly like Drew Brees. Brees dropped from top five pick to the first pick in the 2nd Round. Their offense fell apart because of injury, and their defense looked terrible. With Glenn Dorsey a FA, Tyson Jackson looking like the next to be put on the unemployment line, and their inability to stop the run, I just don't see Star falling. They hired Andy Reid to run things, and he likes to take the big uglies first. “We have been blessed with the No. 1 pick in the draft,” New HC in charge Andy Reid said. “And you want to make sure you do the right thing and pick the right guy, not necessarily a quarterback, it has to be the right thing.” If there is one guy in the NFL who will take a big O-Tackle with the first pick in the Draft it is Parcells. I mean, Andy Reid. 

The Player: He plays with the strength and leverage of Suh. He was not as consistently dominate as Suh. However, he didn't have much talent around him.  

The Reason: Joeckel Will be a temptation, but they took two O-Tackles on Day Two last year. Though they played more O-Guard than Tackle last year. There just isn't another player on the board who fills their needs. 

Second Choice: Luke Joeckel OLT 

2.

Jaguars

*Luke Joeckel

OLT Texas A&M

6-6, 307, 

 

DT, OT, FS, DE, CB, OT, OG, WR, DE,  LB

Last Season's Key F.A.:

Laurent Robinson WR

Chad Henne QB

Jeremy Mincy DE

Aaron Ross CB

Key F.A.:

Rashean Mathis CB

Dwight Lowery S

William Middleton CB (R)

Matt Roth DE

Guy Whimper OT

CJ Mosley DT

Allen Russell WLB (R)

Leger Douzable DT (R)

The Team: The Jags would be ecstatic if Star falls to them. If he doesn't fall they could reach for Johnathon Hankins or Sheldon Richardson. However, both their starting O-Tackles have been a disappointment. The Franchise appears to be stuck with Gabbert. So the new management better start allocating more resources for his continued safety in the pocket, or start looking for new jobs now. 

The Player: Joeckel has the size and measurement. Nobody in this years Draft looks as smooth and natural moving backwards. However, he does struggle sometimes in the run game. does not look as comfortable moving forward  

The Reason: Taking a passrusher here is not out of the question. The pick up of Branch and Babin give them a little wiggle room. 

First Choice: Star Lotulelei DT/NT. 

3.

Raiders

*Damontre Moore

DE Texas A&M

6-5, 255,    

 

Key F.A. Signed:

Key F.A. Lost:

The Team: The Raiders need just about everything, starting with a QB. However, like a lot of early teams, they are likely to get just as good a prospect in the 2nd Round as here. Their HC is a defensive coach. He should have his choice of DE/OLB passrushers. So I don't seem him passing on one here. Jarvis Jones is the top player and passrusher in the Draft, but the thinning of his spine at his neck got him tossed from USC. The last time I remember something similar to this was Marcus McNeil from Auburn who played OLT for San Diego. He fell into the 2nd Round and didn't last long in the League. The new GM seems more like a play it safe guy then anything the Raiders have seen in while. So I'll give them the safer Passrusher, 

The Player: Moore not only has all the physical tools, he has been super productive the past two seasons. 

The Reason: The Raider's D-Line looks like it is a state of flux to me. Moore could go a long way to help solving that problem.  

Second Choice: Jarvis Jones OLB/PR

4.

Eagles

*Jarvis Jones-

OLB/PR Georgia

6-3, 240,  

S, FB, RB, CB, OG, RB, DL, 

Last Seasons F.A. Signed:

DeSean Jackson WR

Todd Herremans OT

Trent Cole DE

DeMarco Ryans ILB

Key F.A.:

Steve Smith WR

Evan Mathis OG

King Dunlap OT

Owen Schmitt FB

Ronnie Brown RB

Derek Landri DT

Antonio Dixon ST (R)

Travor Laws DT

Juqua Parker DE

Vince Young QB

Key Loses:

Winston Justice OT

The Team:  Last season was an unmitigated disaster. As a result they have a whole new everything. I have no idea what all the new guys are thinking. I do know the first thing they have to do is get rid of the coach killer Vick. They are shifting into a 3-4, so getting some players who fit that mold will be important. I thought about jamming an O-Tackle in here, but that seems odd with Jason Peters coming back. If he can stay healthy the line will get healthy fast, as it will improve in three positions.  

The Player: Jones is just a phenomenal Passrusher. Just when I thought Von Miller was the best by far I would ever see, Jones jumps off the Tape. He is not as good as Miller, but he sure is a close second. Struggles at the point of attack sometimes, but other than that he is superior in all other aspects of his position.  

The Reason: A couple of years ago they had interesting bookend Passrushers. Now they have Trent Cole and Vinny Curry as their main OLB. There is no better 3-4 prospect in this entire Draft than Jones. 

Second Choice: Matt Barkley QB 

5.

Lions

*Bjoern Werner-

DE/PR FLA ST

 6-4, 260, 

CB, DE, LB, S, RB, LB, OL, WR, OL, WR, DL,

Last Seasons FA:

Cliff Avril DE/PR

Calvin Johnson WR

Stephen Tulloch LB

Key F.A. Released:

Sammie Lee Hill DE

DeAndre Levy LB

Kevin Smith RB

Maurice Morris RB

Eric Wright CB

Erik Coleman S

Chris Harris S

The Team: Another teams whose needs don't seem to match the talent available. I seriously hate this Draft. The Lions will not stop losing until they get some serious help in the secondary. So Milliner and Reid should be their top priorities. Even Te'o would be more likely to help this team next season then any other players in my top ten. If we go with best player available at a need position it look like a Passrusher.  

The Player: Werner is such an impressive rushers from the Strong side. I always think teams are looking for that player opposite their top rusher to really cause havoc for the opponents O-Line. His main problem is that he is often unreliable in the run game, and indifferent in pursuit. However, when he is rushing the QB his talent is obvious. 

The Reason: Their D-Ends seem to be falling apart.   

Second Choice: Dee Milliner CB

6.

Browns

*Barkevious Mingo

DE/OLB/PR LSU

6-3, 240,  

 

QB, DE, CB, OL, OL, DE, DB, QB, DL, OL, DL, OL, 

Key F.A. Signed:

D'Qwell Jackson ILB

Oniel Cousins OL

Alex Smith TE

Key F.A.:

Mike Adams FS

Johns Greco OL

Steve Vallos OL

Artis Hicks OL

Key F.A. Lost:

Tony Pashos ORT

Peyton Hillis RB

Frostee Rucker DE

Eric Wright CB

The Team: They need so much help. But first they need some serious new karma. Injuries, incompetence, and indecision has destroyed this Franchise. They will probably have to stick with Weeden until next year. However, they are planning another move back to the 3-4 defense. "It'll be a 3-4 defense, the same defense we ran (in Arizona),'' The Brown's new D-Coordinator Horton said. "It won't be a hybrid unless you're playing golf.'' I don't know what that second part meant, but they will have to find some 3-4 players. They will be looking for some aggressive blitzers to attack the quarterback. "I think it’ll be an attacking defense," Brown Owner Jimmy Haslam said about his new D-Coordinator. "He told me in Phoenix with the Arizona Cardinals that he blitzed more than anybody in the league except for the Houston Texans. So I think it’ll be exciting and fun to watch."

The Player:  Mingo is all flash and dash on the edge. He is still more promise than production. He is not stout at the point, but he is so quick at flashing inside to hit the RB. He looks like one of those explosive guys who plays better in the NFL than in college. 

The Reason: Mingo is more of pure Passrusher, but I think his best fit is in a 3-4. Where he can use his pure speed and explosion on the edge to TTC and hit the QB. 

Second Choice: Geno Smith QB 

7.

Cardinals

Eric Fisher-

OLT C. Michigan

 6-6, 305, 

WR, OT, OL, DE, OLB, ILB, DB, DB, DB, OT, TE, OLB, CB, RB, OL, NT, 

Last Years Key F.A. 

Early Doucet WR

Levi Brown OLT

Adam Snyder OL

William Gay CB

Key F.A.:

Vonnie Holliday DE

Brandon Keith ORT

D'Anthony Batiste OT

Pork Chop Womack OG

Deuce Lutui OG

The Team: Again, players don't meet needs. They should just bite the bullet and take Barkley, but can they take another USC QB after the Leinart fiasco. Either Smith or Barkley will likely be available here. They will have to decide if one of them is the guy they want. Or, if they will be happy with a Glennon, Nassib, or Tyler Bray as a better option in the 2nd Round, with a top OLT prospect here. 

The Player: Fisher showed he has all the skills you want in an OLT this past seasonThen he went to the Senior Bowl and dominated. He will be a top ten pick come April.  

The Reason: This crop of QBs main characteristic is inconsistency. They can pick up a QB just as inconsistent in the 2nd Round as Geno Smith.  

Second Choice: Geno Smith QB   

8.

Bills

*Sam Montgomery-

DE/OLB LSU

6-5, 260,    

OLT, QB, LB,  WR, CB, DE/OLB, CB. QB, LB, S CB, 

Key F.A. Signed:

Steve Johnson WR

Mario Williams DE/OLB

Eric Winston OT

Mark Anderson DE Crap!!

Key F.A.:

Roscoe Parrish WR

Derek Hagan WR

Demetrius Bell OT

Kraig Urbik OG (R)

Chad Rinehart OG (R)

Scott Chandler TE

Reggie Torbor LB

Kirk Morrison LB

Andra Davis LB

The Team: The good news of the two D-End disasters they picked in FA last season is that they can get rid of one pretty quickly. They are in perfect position here to find a replacement for Mr. Anderson.

The Player: I like Montgomery as more complete player over Mingo. He is just as good against the run as the pass. It will be interesting to see where he goes. 

The Reason: If the Bills had Glenn at ORT and Lane at OLT they could really balance their O-Line nicely. Then Nassib or Manuel will be waiting for them in the 2nd Round. It looks like they are ready to dump Fitzpatrick for financial reasons. So they might have to take Smith here. Otherwise look for them to take the top defensive player on the board. 

Second Choice: Geno Smith QB

9.

Jets

Geno Smith-

Donald Strickland CB/S

Jim Leonard SS

Marquice Cole CB (R)

Mathew Mulligan (R)

Key F.A. Lost:

Brodney Pool S

The Team: The Jets need... LOL. I mean, they really need... LOL. They really need a QB. They have a QB who lost all his confidence when they brought in the team destroyer, and the Team Destroyer who can't play QB no matter who many moron's yell: "Tea and Bow" together, LOL. Their is nothing finer then watch the Jets team, fans, and media tear each other apart. GO TEA-BOW! 

The Player: Smith can easily look like best QB in the Draft by far, and then choke when the pressure is on. He is ready physically, but he is clearly not ready mentally. Mental toughness is one of the most important aspects, if not the most important aspect of playing QB in the NFL. He scares the crap out of me. I have more games to watch on him. 

The Reason: Why not add another inconsistent insecure QB to the chaos, LOL. God help us Pat's fans when Brady retires, because unless you get lucky this is what you get at QB when it turns desperate. 

Second Choice: Geno Smith QB

Titans

Barrett Ruud LB

Patrick Bailey LB

Tim Shaw LB

Ahmad Hall FB

Key F.A. Lost:

Scott Wells OC

Chris Meyers OC

Jason Jones DE

The Team: Titans look like they might be in pretty good position. They need some help in the secondary and on the O-Line. They should have their choice of Womack, Milliner, and Reid. I think either of the three would be a huge help for this team. Although, Barrett Jones could play all three interior O-Line positions for them at an All-Pro level.    

The Player: Womack is an old school thumper who can put a hurt on defenders. Like on the first play from the Championship game, he picked up the ILB and knocked him 7-yards sideways. 

The Reason: Right now Womack is the top rated of the three players who could start for them next year. Plus, he is rated higher by most other people. Your welcome Mr. Johnson.        

Second Choice: *Eric Reid S

Chargers

Lane Johnson

Atari Bigby S

Key F.A. Lost:

Vincent Jackson WR

Kris Dielman OG

Marcus McNeil OLT

Luis Castillo DE

Dnate Hughes CB

The Team: This team has some very big needs. Most will be meet in FA. However, the O-Line is wretched and could really use as many as four new starters. If one of the big three OLTs drop they will gleefully grab him up.  

The Player:  If you don't know this guy, don't worry. He showed at the Senior Bowl as a converted TE, who converted from QB, that he is a legit OLT prospect. He dominated in every passing drill. He even looked pretty good in the run game as well. He will be a top ten pick.  

The Reason: They have to protect Rivers before he gets beaten out of the League. Having a legit NFL OLT will make everyone on the offense better.  

Second Choice: Dee Milliner CB
