2nd Mock
I included a couple trades for fun. You may speculate on the return value. I took the current standings and projected the playoffs. You're welcome Seattle.

1. Cleveland Browns f/ Tampa Bay – Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The Bucs should like Glennon’s work enough to work a trade down, and the Browns cash in on two 1st round picks to get their guy. They have the pieces to rise quickly between their defense, Gordon, Thomas, and now Bridgewater.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon: The Jags need help almost everywhere. It begins with the quarterback. Mariota is risky but with the league’s transition to more read-option Mariota could pay high dividends.

3. Houston Texans – Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA: With Hundley and Bortles returning to school, the Texans don’t like their QB options at number 3. They do like Barr, who gives a Derrick Thomas type presence to JJ Watt’s Neil Smith.

4. Atlanta Falcons – Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: The Falcons have been looking for that pass rushing end for years and finally Clowney falls in their laps.

5. Minnesota Vikings – Ra’shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota: After just missing out on Clowney, the Vikes take a nice consolation prize and keep Hageman in Minnesota.

6. Arizona Cardinals f/ N.Y. Giants – Jake Matthews, T, Texas A&M: The Giants don’t like their options after missing on Barr and Clowney, so the Cards move up to avoid missing one of the stud tackles.

7. Buffalo Bills – Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina: Ebron will quickly become Manuel’s new best friend and add a new element to Buffalo’s burgeoning offense.

8. Oakland Raiders – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M: Pryor will like the addition of this big target to the Silver and Black.

9. St. Louis Rams f/ Washington – Cyrus Kouandjio, T, Alabama: Redskins provide the Rams with their left tackle of the future. Hopefully this one sticks.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers – Antonio Richardson, T, Tennessee: Steelers pass on Watkins, trusting their ability to identify receivers in the later rounds is greater than their ability to identify tackles.

11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers f/ Cleveland – Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson: Mike Glennon gets a speedster to test his rocket arm on.

12. St. Louis Rams – Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo: The Rams add a playmaker to their linebacker corps. Not just a Mack truck thumper (couldn’t resist), Khalil can play inside or out.

13. Baltimore Ravens – Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame: This just makes too much sense. Tuitt will benefit greatly from Ngata next to him.

14. Tennessee Titans – Ha’sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama: The Titans would love to add an aggressive playmaker like HaHa to the back of their defense.

15. San Diego Chargers – Taylor Lewan, T, Michigan: The Bolts bookend Fluker with Lewan. Their run game should be very very good.

16. New York Jets – Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech: The Jets add the very dangerous Amaro to their offense and Geno Smith leaps for joy.

17. New York Giants f/ Arizona – C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama: Missing out on Barr, the G-Men deal back and pickup Mosley, who adds a physical, athletic presence to their front 7.

18. Philadelphia Eagles – Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida: Eagles add this cover man to help out on defense. I almost went with Ifo but I don’t want to wear out the Kelly-Oregon connection.

19. Chicago Bears – Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon: Here’s Ifo. The Bears look to the future with this coverman after briefly considering Derek Carr and Kelcy Quarles.

20. Green Bay Packers – Kyle Van Noy, LB, Brigham Young: The Pack adds this disruptive presence opposite Matthews.

21. Miami Dolphins – Cameron Ervin, T, Florida St.: The Phins need to protect Tannehill and move to do so by keeping Ervin in state.

22. Dallas Cowboys – Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina: Quarles has turned it on this year, living in opponents backfields. Whoever Dallas’ new coach is will thank Jerry for adding Quarles.

23. Detroit Lions – Odell Beckham, WR, Louisiana St.: Beckham’s a stud and will help make that offense lethal.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers f/ Cleveland and Indianapolis – Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame: The Bucs add this huge presence to the middle of their line hoping his knee problems aren’t chronic. Sammy Watkins and Louis Nix is a nice haul for Tampa.

25. San Francisco 49ers – Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California: The Niners don’t like their DL choices and so add a weapon to help Kaepernick evolve.

26. Carolina Panthers – Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio St.: The Panthers considered ASJ here but ultimately settle on Shazier to play next to Keuchly and behind Lotulelei. Panthers looking reeeeaaal good all of a sudden.

27. New England Patriots – Anthony Johnson, DT, Louisiana St.: Johnson can’t replace Wilfork but will play a solid 3 tech next to Wilfork’s shade until big Vince retires.

28. Denver Broncos – Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St.: Roby is too talented to last this long so the Donks stop his slide. DBs and pass rushers will be important so long as Peyton is running up the score.

29. Cincinnati Bengals – Christian Jones, LB, Florida St.: The Bengals add the athletic Jones next to the thumper Burfict. They might address interior OL here instead.

30. New Orleans Saints – Vic Beasley, LB, Clemson: The Saints get tremendous pass rush from Cameron Jordan and that’s about it. Beasley is a poor man’s Von Miller but the Saints will welcome him to New Orleans.

31. Kansas City Chiefs – Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St.: The Chiefs look to the future and take Carr while passing over ASJ and the tantalizing Allen Robinson.

32. Seattle Seahawks – Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee: The Seahawks take this goliath hoping to turn him into a world-beater.

Let me have it.

Interesting for Cleveland and I could see it happening. Kind of cringe at the cost but I wouldn't be upset.

Nice Dallas pick, big fan of Quarles. I actually just brought him up on our board as a guy who will continue to rise as the process continues. The combination of a great season and a good workout would put him in top 20 coversation imo.

kBuc5 11-11-2013 11:37 AM

The Buc's main needs are QB, DE, TE, OG, Slot WR. Given the way the board fell no problem with Watkins really even though that seems like a high pick for the Buc's to use on a WR. Spence has been pretty good as a rookie and McCoy is a pro bowler, no need for a DT that high.

Robcards 11-11-2013 01:01 PM

Not a bad Jets pick as far as position goes. However, I don't think these TEs are going to go top 16. Eifert was one of the best TE prospects in recent years and even he didn't go top 20 last year in a weak draft class. It's just not a position that is high value.

wwgd 11-11-2013 01:51 PM

Shazier is good, but this is a bad pick for us. TD is playing great, Blackburn's been decent, and Klein looked impressive in his first start yesterday. I have no problems with drafting an OLB just not with a premium pick. WR and OT is what I want in the first two rounds.

twiz 11-11-2013 01:59 PM

I really think that's too much for any QB in this draft. Too many question marks throughout, when Hoyer and Campbell have both played well and we can get a strong QB prospect with our current picks. Just a couple weeks ago, I thought this would be worth it, and if Bridgewater or Mariota is their guy, they'll make that trade. But personally, each week has left me more and more sour on almost every QB in this draft.

I'd be pretty surprised if the Ravens took a defensive lineman in the first round. Arthur Jones is a free agent but Brandon Williams has looked pretty good and either he or Ngata would take Jones' place (he's going to be too expensive to retain) and the other would start at nose tackle with Canty manning the other end spot. Depth could be an issue but Baltimore will have Lewis-Moore next season and Deangelo Tyson is a fairly solid player. The Ravens are in a good place with their front seven right now. Offensive line, free safety, cornerback, and getting another clear-cut starting receiver tops the needs list at this point.

Pat Sims 90 11-11-2013 05:32 PM

Bengals picking 29 lol. I think they will be lucky to make the playoffs at this point the way they have been playing. That being said I am not a fan of Jones and much rather have someone like Ikpre-Olomu.

ArkyRamsFan 11-11-2013 07:16 PM

Rams are much more likely to pick Watkins instead of Kouandjio and Clinton -Dix instead of Mack for several reasons.

1.) Joe Barksdale has been playing well at RT and it looks like he may have won the job permanently. Heck, now that Saffold is back he is playing OG for first time since 7th grade. Go figure.....

2.) We just don't need a OLB at that point in the first round. Since we are in nickel 50+% of the time and Laurinaitis and Ogletree never come off the field where would that leave Mr. Mack? On the bench playing mebbe 40% of snaps.

Both Watkins and Clinton-Dix start from day one.

Pick 'em, Dano!!:banana:

Pit Bull #53 11-13-2013 04:06 PM

Just my opinion, but in that scenario, I'd take Lewan for the Titans and not look back. Dave Stewart is done.

mightytitan9 11-14-2013 04:12 PM

HaHa isn't a top 15 pick IMO. I know a lot of people disagree, but I would be very upset if we were selecting there and he was our selection

jared3 11-14-2013 10:05 PM

TE Jace Amaro is returning to Texas Tech for his senior season. Also, Kelcy Quarles a first rounder? I doubt it.

the_legend_killer 11-14-2013 10:13 PM

Hageman at 5 seems a bit high.

This is from 8 days ago:

Prior to Texas Tech's final home game of the season, junior TE Jace Amaro suggested it might be his last at the school.
"If you have no other reason to go out to this game, come for our Seniors. Who knows, it might be my last game at the Jones too," Amaro tweeted. This goes against what the tight end tweeted a few weeks ago, but we aren't surprised. He and Eric Ebron are the top two tight ends in this class, according to our own Josh Norris. "I know my idea is to stay here all four years," Amaro said after the game. "That's the plan right now, and we'll just see what happens at the end of this season."

T-RICH49 11-18-2013 02:19 PM

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:07 PM.
