Round 1 Mock pre com
1 Colts - Andrew Luck QB - No surprise Colts or not he is the #1 pick.
2 SL - Justin Blackmon WR - Blackmon is not a stunning talent but he has a Jerry Rice work ethic and is not a diva. SL was so desperate for a WR they trade to get an aging bust. Lloyd like his coach will not be back.
3 Minni - Matt Kalil OL - If they want Ponder to work they need to keep him in the pocket. If SL takes Kalil I could see Blackmon here so either way this is my top 3.
4 Trade Washington Robert Griffin III - Washington has burned so many bridges in the QB market they really have very few options there. They can go after Flynn and hope he is the next thing or get a vet to groom this kid. I really wouldn't put it past them to trade to 1 and get Luck however.
5 TB Morris Claiborn CB - Is likely #1 on their short list. Barber is like 100 and they need a CB bad.
6 Trade Cleveland - Trent Richardson RB - They need a star and they will need a RB. This fits both. All they really have on O in a QB so Trent and Blackmon have to be their two top targets. I just dont see Blackmon getting this far but if he does I still think they go Trent.
7 Jax - Nick Perry DE/LB - Fits what ever it is they have been doing on D. A good 4-3 option but has 3-4 ability. Jax is making something there either way this is not a bad pick they need to add a blitz.
8 Carolina - Luke Kuechly ILB - Conner is a FA and they will likely be looking to replace him. Kuechly is a very good inside run stopper. It is very likely they trade back with a team looking to nab Tannehill.
9 Trade Seattle - Ryan Tannehill QB - Pete needs more then this FA market to save his job. A rookie QB may be his best option. I'd go DE for them but I think it is very likely someone trades up to get Tannehill. I don't see Miami taking him but they will likely make it look like they are, to draw the trade.
10 Buff - Zach Brown - Buff has 1 good LB and very little depth. This D hurt them bad. Zach is pure talent here and it is much needed in Buff.
11 KC - Riley Reiff OL - Seems ranked higher then he should be. If KC doesn't get Tannehill OL seems logical. I have DeCastro ranked higher but a G, I just can't do it.
12 Trade Miami - David DeCastro G - Seems way too early for a G but for now I'm going with it because it is a great fit. Carey is a FA and Colombo is old. They need to add to that line as they also struggled last year. They trade back and get anther pick so taking a G is exceptable.
13 Zona - Dre Kirkpatrick DB - As much as I would love to say Zona will go OL here this is just more likely. They have 3 FA in the back and Dre would be a big upgrade for them.
14 Dallas - Quinton Coples DE - Dallas will be looking to add some good youth to that front 3. Coples will deffinetly fill that role.
15 Philly - Lavonte David LB - Andy's kind of player. Great athlete but kind of on the small side. Actually I think this would be a very good pick up for them. Given the fan out cry here if they dont go LB Jeffy might wake up next to an severed Eagles head.
16 Jets - Melvin Ingram DE/LB - I'm actually not a fan but he has leaped up the charts and most of my other picks are already off the board here. With some good coaching and losing a few Lbs he'd be good in this D. Possible Trade down? If we added pick in this drafted it would be a great idea much more talent here then last years weak draft.
17 Bengles - Lamar Miller RB - Great burst good power. Benson is on a down slope and Scott is just not that good. May seem early but Cinci needs what this guy can do. Heck even I'll admit this may be my dumbest pick.
18 SD - Mohamed Sanu WR - With Gates aging and DJax on his way out SD need a young WR that can do more then just go deep. Sanu is a clutch WR that would work well in this system. I can only hope they are done with diva WRs.
19 Chi - Jonathan Martin OL - Will likely go WR shopping in the FA pool. Cutler got the snot knocked out of him too much this year.
20 Tenn - Mark Barron S - They have a lot of youth on this team but will likely be losing at least one S here. Barron is just the easy out so I took it. Was thinking Floyd but they have 3 good WRs.
21 Cinci - Whitney Mercilus DE - Unless they land Avril I'm throwing this one right out there. They have made some bad DE picks they need to get a winner on this one.
22 Cleveland - Michael Floyd WR - This is why I think Cleveland will go Trent even if Blackmon falls. Question is do they take a WR here or go Dennard and take one in the 3rd? Really hard call. My brain says Dennard but my instinct tells me Floyd.
23 Detroit - Alfonzo Dennard CB - If Cleveland passes Detroit will not. Unless a stud OL falls here I think this is a pretty safe bet.
24 Pitts - Zebrie Sanders OL - If Dennard is there easy pick IMO but I dont think he makes it. Ben was hit a lot for a QB in a run 1st team OL seems like a good guess. Zebrie has a very high up side but will need a lot of coaching up. I dont think that is an issue here.
25 Denver - Devon Still DT - Still may be a top 15 guy but has 2 things against him right now. He is from Penn State and a DT. 2 things that usually fall on draft day. Denver gets a gift here.
26 GB - Mike Adams LT - Anyone else see Rodgers running for his life in the playoffs? Yeah if they want anther SB they need a better LT.
27 Houston - Michael Brockers DE - An ideal pick up if he is there. I like Crick more but Brockers right now is ranked higher.
28 NE - Fletcher Cox DL - A vercitle DL can do most anything. The kind of play the Steelers and Pats tend to pick late in the 1st and turn into studs. I'd say Jeffery here but D was a major issue for NE and they will address it. Again I like Crick more but Cox is just a better fit for NE.
29 Balt - Vontaze Burfict ILB - Lewis can't play forever. He is a solid player that fits this D very well.
30 SF - Alson Jeffery WR - I have to think even if Morgan does come back WR has to be a big consideration here. If they thought Edwards would help Jeffery has to look like gold to them. They where a WR away from being in the SB.
31 NY - Dont'a Hightower MLB - Maybe just the name but I just think it would fit for NY.
32 NE - Kendall Wright WR - Taking a short fast WR shouldn't be a hard call here. Because of his height this may be a push but for now I'm going this way. Had them going Minnifield but they have taken 3 DB in resent years.
