View Full Version : The first 15 picks

Disclaimer: I am not nearly as ambitious as most of you and I am a bit lazy so I am doing a top 15 mock.

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
*Possible they go A.J. Green or even Marcell Dareus here but QB is the major issue and Ron Rivera is quoted as saying he's ""I'm already convinced." on Newton.

Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
*There is a chance they pick up Patrick Peterson and throw the top 10 for a loop as far as mock drafts are concerned. However, they could pick up a younger DB later and hope Champ keeps playing at the high level. Dareus would put a wall in the middle of the D-line for years and boost the defense.

Von Miller, DE/OLB, Texas A&M
*Big chance they pick up Blaine Gabbert here but Von Miller is just what they need and could make an impact day one.

A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
*The Bengals could be another landing spot for Blaine Gabbert but just like the Bills they don't want to gamble. A.J. Green may be the best player in this draft and if you are uncertain about Palmer, why not give him some incentive to come back?

Patrick Peterson | CB | LSU
*I have a feeling this won't be the Cardinals making this pick but it will still be Patrick Peterson going off the board. If the Cardinals don't find a trade partner they would pick up Peterson or Blaine Gabbert.

Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
*This was a tough pick for me, I really wanted to say Robert Quinn here but with changing to a 4-3 defense I could see them wanting to beef up the defensive line starting in the middle.

Blaine Gabbert | QB | Missouri
*This is a real toss up, I go back and forth on Gabbert, Quinn, Cameron Jordan and Amukamara. We obviously have an issue at QB and it is the reason our team is where they are and picking at 7, Gabbert is the man.

Cameron Jordan | DE | California
*Possible they will go for Julio Jones at this spot with their dumbass receiver getting arrested. Also could go Quinn but I think most teams feel Jordan is a safer pick, if Jordan is here they draft him and surprise everyone. Yes, I know that Quinn is still on the board but I think he drops out of the top 10.

Tyron Smith | OT | USC
*Almost had to do a coin flip here with Smith and J.J. Watt, but Romo has a broken heart and needs some pass protection and Dallas is bound to sign one of their FA defensive linemen.

Lions from Redskins
Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
*I don't believe this will be the Redskins making this pick but it will be Prince Amukamara. I think someone will move up (Lions to jump the Texans maybe?) and the Redskins will drop back a couple spots hoping to pick up Julio Jones.

Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina
*The Texans were sad to see Amukamara get picked before them but very happy that Quinn is still on the board.

J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
*It is possible the Vikings reach here and pick Ryan Mallet or Jake Locker but I think they go for the safer pick and get mister motor, Justin Smith junior.

Redskins from Lions
Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
*This trade idea might mess up my whole mock but I could see it happening.

Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
*They draft a DE here, I'm not sure which one but I think they go for the boom or bust player.

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
*Everyone has them taking Pouncey the center from Florida and that could happen if they have faith that Brown can stay healthy. I see them picking up Ingram to keep their running back stable stocked.
