1. MIA (0-16) - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford (they'll likely be underdogs the rest of the year
2. IND (1-15) - Matt Kalil, OT, USC (Peyton need not worry, Indy is bad, but Miami is worse)
3. DEN (3-13) - Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma (If they are picking here, it means Tebow isn't the future)
4. CLE (4-12) - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State (WR corps is less than stellar)
5. ARI (4-12) - Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
6. CAR (5-11) - Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU (A notch below Patrick Peterson, and Carolina could definitely use the secondary help)
7. MIN (5-11) - Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina (Ponder needs weapons, could fill in nicely for Sidney Rice, another successful Gamecock)
8. TEN (6-10) - Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina (Excellent value and fills a position of need)
9. SEA (6-10) - Matt Barkley, QB, USC (Pete Carroll/Barkley reunite?)
10. JAC (6-10) - Vontaze Burfict, LB, Arizona State
11. STL (6-10) - Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame
12. WAS (7-9) - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor (First round talent, WAS trying to mimic Vick's success)
13. KC (8-8) - Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
14. PHI (8-8) - Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College (Bloodlines might not be enough for Casey Matthews)
15. DAL (8-8) - Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama (Secondary always seems to be lacking in Big D)
16. SD (8-8) - Alameda Ta'amu, DT, Washington
17. CIN (9-7) - Alfonzo Denard, CB, Nebraska (Replacement for Jonathan Joseph)
18. CHI (9-7) - Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa (O-Line struggles to keep Cutler upright sometimes)
19. TB (9-7) - Mark Barron, S, Alabama
20. BAL (10-6) - Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia
21. CIN* (9-7) - Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama (Tremendous value, and with the secondary addressed, can afford a luxury pick)
22. BUF (10-6) - Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia
23. SF (11-5) - Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
24. DET (11-5) - Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
25. HOU (10-6) - Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame (What Julio Jones is to ATL, Floyd can be in HOU)
26. CLE** (4-12) - Andrew Datko, OT, Florida State
27. NYG (10-6) - Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut
28. NYJ (12-4) - Bruce Irvin, LB, West Virginia
29. PIT (12-4) - Jared Crick, DL, Nebraska
30. GB (13-3) - Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina
31. NE*** (13-3) - Ronnell Lewis, LB, Oklahoma
32. NE (13-3) - Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

*via Oakland, who I have finishing (9-7)
**via Atlanta, who I have finishing (10-6)
*** via New Orleans, who I have finishing (13-3)

Constructive criticism encouraged, thanks for reading.

Jeffery is a good Vikings pick, especially with Kalil and Martin off the board as LT is a bigger need than WR IMO, but Jeffery is a much better value than Reiff.

One question about the projected order: Do you really see St. Louis winning 6 of their remaining 10 games? I definitely see them winning a few, but no chance at getting to 6. They play ARI 2x, SEA 2x, and Cleveland once, but they also play New Orleans, Cincy, San Fran 2x, and Pitt. The only way I see them getting to 6 wins is by winning all of those first games I listed plus another of the last 5 and they are way too bad for that to happen.

Please explain Burfict to Jacksonville. Holy crap.

I'm puttin a lot of faith in the eventual help of Sam Bradford, and the development of Brandon Lloyd and their offense. Maybe 6-10 is a bit ambitious (I have them losing to NO, SF, PIT and SEA, beating SF, ARIx2, SEA, CLE, SF, and CIN)

I don't get the KC pick. We have so many more needs on this team than another first rounder on the DL: QB, RT, ILB, RB are huge needs.

I guess...I definitely don't see it happening, though. Even if their offense develops as you think it will(it's got a long ways to go given that they're 28th in YPG and 32nd in PPG), their defense is still terrible(29th in YPG and 31st in PPG).

The Bengals are not passing on Richardson with their first pick no matter who is there minus Luck. Richardson is not a luxury pick for us. OG is a bigger priority that CB at this point at well. Where is DeCastro? He would be the Bengals second pick and the Bengals would walk to the AFCN championship for the next 6 years.

Why the hell would Green Bay take an undersized 4-3 OLB?

I can handle where you have NO picking.

Dude, remove the rose colored glasses now before you hurt yourself...The Rams are currently 0 - 6 and soon to be 0 - 7 after our loss to New Orleans this Sunsday, and you think we will go 6 - 3 the rest of the year and finish at 6 - 10?

Yeah, the schedule gets allegedly easier but this team tanked weeks ago.

Doesn't matter who the Rams are playing when they suffer from Tin Man disease.

Oh, and the fact we are among the leaders in penalties, penalty yardage and dropped passes we appear to have a bad case of Scarecrow Syndrome too.

6 - 10? We'll see...that would be quite amazing indeed.

The Patriots have a lot of defensive tackles and I think they'd like to get back to a 3-4 base if possible. I'm not really sure Worthy is a five-technique. Not a terrible pick considering the value but I don't think it'll happen. Ronnell Lewis is what, 6'2", 245? The Patriots have a strict size requirement on their pass rushers which tends to be at least 6'3", 255 and up. Think big!

Lamo Jones will be no different and I'd rather play Tebow in Denver.

Dennard is a Cover 2 Corner Bengals don't run a Cover 2. Jenkins is a better fit at Corner for the Bengals.

Ricahrdson is a good pick.

Ahmad Brooks has played very well this year CB or S in round one for the Niners.

If Colts and Dolphins both go 0-16, Colts get the number one overall pick because their strength of schedule is tougher.

I agree with this.

true, but I have the Colts going 1-15 so this is a moot point..

Add TE to the list.

Add TE to the list.

Yes, but it's secondary to the ones that vidae listed. Remember that Moeaki will be back next year. With his injury history it would be nice to have another passing catching TE but that can be addressed in a later round (as they did when drafted Moeaki).
