3/26 costrander3689's Mock Draft
1 - HOU: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
I think the Texans will try had to drop back, possibly with Jacksonville. If they can't they should go with Mack, who fits their system and gives them a huge upgrade a position of need
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
This pick should be between Robinson, Watkins and Matthews. The Rams have been going high-upside with some of their recent picks, and would be wise to grab a potentially dominant RT and future LT here
3 - JAX: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
I think the Jaguars will end up swapping with Houston, landing each of them with the picks that I have them taking. Clowney should pair nicely with Red Bryant
4 - CLE: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
After Gordon and Cameron, the Browns receivers are not that frightening. Yes, they still need a QB, but adding Watkins and free agent HB Tate will make their QBs life much easier
5 - OAK: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
This pick will likely come down to Bortles and Matthews. I think the Raiders will ride with what they have at LT and RT for now, and take a huge-upside QB here. Bortles wont have to start immediately, and can learn behind Schaub
6 - ATL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
With Clowney gone, the Falcons should scoop up Matthews here. His ability to play LT or RT will be huge for them
7 - TB: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The Bucs almost get cornered into making this pick here; not that they'd be upset. Evans would give McCown/Glennon another option behind VJax, who could use a sidekick to take some pressure off of him
8 - MIN: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Despite all the reports, I still believe Bridgewater will be off the board before Manziel. He's a high-IQ, high-accuracy rhythm passer that can prepare behind Cassel and take over, potentially early in the year
9 - BUF: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
I like Ebron over Lewan here. Though they might have a shot at a decent TE in the 2nd round, they won't find anyone like Ebron there.
10 - DET: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Secondary should be a focus area for Detroit in this draft. I wouldn't be surprised if they drafted 3 DBs in the first 4 rounds. HCD would give them a legitimate centerfield-type safety that they've badly needed
11 - TEN: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
The Titans need to find a real MLB that isn't Fouku or McCarthy. Mosley is a heat-seeking missle that will certainly help their defense
12 - NYG: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
The Giants d-line needs and infusion of talent. Hankins and Moore have some potential, and after losing Joseph, grabbing a potentially-dominant 3-tech DT would be a nice idea
13 - STL: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
With HCD off the board, the Rams should look CB here. Dennard would pair nicely with Jenkins and give them the ability to cover a speed receiver and a physical receiver
14 - CHI: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Tillman and Jennings are on the wrong side of 30, and are going to start declining soon. Gilbert could step into one of their starting roles, and allow them to start lowering their snap counts to stay fresh
15 - PIT: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
With the top 2 CBs gone, and Lewan on the board, this pick shouldn't take too long. The Steelers have been looking for a cornerstone-LT, and get a really good one with Lewan
16 - BAL: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
Matt Elam has been a success story so far, but they need to replace their other safety spot. Pryor gives them another hard-hitter that can put some fear into WRs
17 - DAL: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Nix could tumble a bit, but he'd be a good pick for Dallas. He would create a solid pair with Melton that can keep opposing HBs and QBs from getting too comfortable
18 - NYJ: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
Decker was a nice pick-up, but they should keep looking for weapons. Beckham is a nice grab here and would give them a speedy route-runner on the outside
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
The Dolphins need help all over the o-line. Martin can play RT, RG or LG, making him incredibly valuable for them.
20 - ARI: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
WIth the top QBs off the board, the Cardinals should look for a pass rusher here. Barr's fall has more to do with teams' needs than his ability, and he's a steal for Arizona here
21 - GB: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
AJ Hawk badly needs a partner at MLB. Hawk fits the thumper role, and Shazier would take the coverage role
22 - PHI: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
Philly would like a safety here, but with HCD and Pryor off the board, pass rusher is their next best bet
23 - KC: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Alex Smith can be phenomenal when he has a good supporting cast. Bowe and Charles are solid, but he needs an explosive option outside, which Cooks would give him
24 - CIN: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Bengals need help and CB, and depth at safety. Fuller would give them both of those things, and could start at any secondary position
25 - SD: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
With DJ Fluker firmly entrenched at RT, the Charger should look for a replacement for Dunlap at LT
26 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Manziel is the most likely to fall of the top 3 because of concerns about his durability and decision making, but the Browns would have a hard time talking themselves out of this one
27 - NO: Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
The Saints continue to beef up their defensive front, and get Will Smith's replacement here
28 - CAR: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
With Jordan Gross retiring, and massive depth at CB and WR available, the Panthers should take a shot at Kouandjio here, assuming the concerns about his knee are actually false
29 - NE: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL , UCLA
With a rapidly aging interior o-line, the Patiots should continue thinking of th future. This pick reminds me of the Nate Solder pick a few years ago, and we've seen how that turned out
30 - SF: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
CB is the biggest concern area for the 49ers. Verrett can play outside or in the slot immediately, and could be a 3rd safety in a pinch
31 - DEN: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
Woodyard is off to Tennessee, leaving a solid hole at MLB. Treviathan and Miller are good OLBs, and plugging Borland into the middle would solve some concerns
32 - SEA: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
Lee appears to be the only of the top 5 WRs to not be gaining momentum. If he falls this far, I don't see the Seahawks not taking a shot at him

Below Average -- Manziel won't fall out of the top 10 and Clowney is the pick at 1. He is head and shoulders above Mack and can play OLB or DE in Houston's 3-4.
