2 rounder with Canadian Spelling!!!!
Houston - Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
Bob McNair is already throwing out smokescreens about how much he loves Clowney but he knows his D is strong and just hired an offence guy in O'Brien. If they think that Bridgewater is a franchise QB they won't pass on him
St. Louis (via Washington) - Jadewon Clowney DE South Carolina
I highly expect a trade down here but I am not mocking trades this draft. Quinn and Clowney would be pretty fearsome. They play in the strongest division and getting to the QB will be a must to stay competitive. They have Chris Long also which would be a pretty high priced rotation guy.
Jacksonville - Anthony Barr OLB/DE UCLA
All 3 of my mocks I keep placing him here. Gus Bradley runs a hybrid system and they have no talent coming off the edge. Barr is a Von Miller clone and instantly upgrades the pass rush. After missing on Gabbert, they pass on an early QB selection. Henne can hold the fort until next year or if they take a QB to groom in the later rounds
Cleveland - Blake Bortles QB UCF
No Coach and no clue. Campbell and Hoyer were adequate but will never get them to the playoffs. Josh Gordon was a beast with pedestrians throwing to him. Bortles isn't a pick and play guy but keeping Hoyer around while they groom Bortles isn't a bad idea
Oakland - Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
Not sure how they feel about Manziel but 2015 draft is stronger for QB depth and they must realize that they need more then one good offseason to be tops in this strong division. A year of grooming and learning a new game speed can only help they QB they take in 2015
Atlanta - Greg Robinson OT Auburn
Probably moving off this pick wether is be up for Clowney or down for an OT or maybe Ebron.
Robinson will this years Lane Johnson and shoot up the draft board before the draft. He will no doubt make who ever is running for the Falcons happy and Matty Ice won't be upset about the pick either
Tampa Bay - Scott Crichton DD Oregon St.
There is always one surprise early in the Draft. Another spot that will most like be moved on. McCoy collapses the pocket but the lack of and elite edge rusher has hurt the defence. Lots of talent all around just have to put the pieces together. Crichton doesn't do anything flashy but he is ultra consistent with a good motor
Minnesota - Kony Ealy DE Missouri
QB is a huge need but only Manziel with an early round grade and he won't be a fir for them while moving outdoors . Allen is old and will be gone soon. Ealy adds a little hype to the pass rush.
Buffalo - Khalil Mack LB Buffalo
Not a fan of this pick but it makes sense picking a hometown boy to a position of need. Mack and Alonso with be a formidable behind the line they have. If Watkins falls I can see them taking him over anyone else
Detroit - Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida St.
Sticking with this pick. His stock with soar after combine. Caldwell is going to work with Stafford on his mechanics and patience. Having 2 6'5" wideouts will definitely help.
Tennessee - Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
Needs bookend, BPA, family ties to organization. Can't see CJ2K sticking around but whoever runs behind this year will be a happy guy. Locker gets one more chance.
New York Giants - Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
Toss up between Lewan and Kouandijo. Lewan has more polish and can be inserted right into LT spot right away. Manning got hit/pressured way to often last year leading to all the INT's
St. Louis - Cryus Kouandijo OT Alabama
Jake Long is a band-aid (literally) and can't be counted on for a full season. Cryus can be inserted into RT and move over throughout the season if Long gets hurt or released. Saffold is a FA that will probably be priced out if they keep Lonng
Chicago - Louis Nix III DT Notre Dame
AP, Bush, And Lacy in the division Stopping the run is a must. Peppers could be a cap casualty due to age but DT is much more pressing need. Offence clicks but doesn't see the field enough.
Pittsburgh - HaSean Clinton-Dix S Alabama
Secondary is getting very old. A year to learn under Tory and Dix could be one of the very best.
Baltimore - Marques Lee WR USC
Once rated as the top WR in the class, his stock dropped this season due to injury and poor QB play. He would take over as the Boldin type receiver to Tory Smiths burner. Flacco needs weapons after signing that big contract
Dallas - Timmy Jernigan DT Florida St.
Cupboard is bare when it comes to the middle for this team. Hatcher is getting old and they used a patchwork crew beside him. Jernigan adds strength to the line helping take away double teams from Ware and Spencer
New York Jets - Eric Ebron TE UNC
Rex signed a new contract that does not give him much protection at all so he is still in the same boat he has been the last couple seasons and that is start producing wins or get fired. Geno Smith struggled mightily as a rookie but some of that was because he had no talent to throw to. Ebron adds a big solid safety valve for him that will thrive in the red zone.
Miami - Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee
Probably a reach but they really have no choice but to fix the line after the debockel that they had last year. Richardson will need a year at RT to adjust to faster ends. He has good size that could translate to guard if he struggles against speed
Arizona - Johnny Manziel
Probably won't drop this far. A very good situation here as he won't be thrust into the limelight and can learn from consummate professional like Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer. Tough division so chances are they let him watch and learn for a year under Palmer and maybe insert him on goal line situations
Green Bay - CJ Mosley LB Alabama
They can't stop the run. Mosley roaming the middle will help turn that around. He is quick sideline to sideline and chances are Hawk will be a cap causality so MLB will be a big gaping hole
Philadelphia Eagles - Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma St.
Scores big points, gives up big points. Adding a near shutdown corner will help lessen the blow the defence allows game in and game out. Gilbert stock rose steadily all season. He has great size and fluid hips.
Kansas City - Stephen Tiutt DE Notre Dame
Poe wore down as the season ended so adding some depth along will help keep him and the rest fresh. Tiutt isn't going to put up huge sack numbers but rarely is a 5 Tech asked to. He will add to an already good run defence.
Cincinnati - Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan St.
Seconday is getting old and needs depth. Denard is a tough player that plays hard and can fill the nickel from day one allowing to them to switch someone (Newman is he stays on team) to Safety where depth is more of a concern
San Diego - David Yankey OG Stanford
Line played well but still needs upgrading. LT is a weak spot but no good replacement here to take. Yankey is a good line pusher that played tackle in college and should help the stable of RB's stay happy. Cornerback is also a real void but keeping Rivers upright is probably more of a need right now.
Cleveland Browns - Cyril Richardson OG Baylor
Mack is a free agent at centre and even if he is retained they need to upgrade interior of the line. Even with the earlier selection of Bortles this will be a Ground and Pund offence supported by a talented D.
New Orleans - Trent Murphy OLB Stanford
Rob Ryan loves to blitz but doesn't have the pass rushing personel to do so. Murphy has good speed off the edge and will help take pressure off Cam Jordan and Will Smith.
Carolina - Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
Saying that Carolina's WR depth is weak is an under statement. Newton needs weapons to take the pressure off him. Last years draft really shore up the D-Line but now they need to add some talent on offence. Evans gives Cam a tall target to toss too. Good red zone option as well
New England - Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech
Once the strong point of the offence, now TE seems to be a need with Gronk injured and Hernandez released. Amaro has solid hands and can easily be the 2nd option if Gronk is heathly. He might not be quick in the Hernandez role but BB will be creative and scheme plays for him. Good chance that NE trades back from the slot
San Francisco - Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
Rogers will be released and finding depth in the secondary will be a need. Colvin is big wthl good hips and range. Needs to work on his tacking. Depending on Boldin, they could take a WR here as well.
Seattle - Jason Verrett CB TCU
Not many needs but where they do have a need not enough talent left to warrant a 1st round choice. Browner will suspended and a free agent and depth really goes down after Sherman. Verrett is a solid corner that will have to be plugged into the nickel to start.
Denver - Zach Martin OT Notre Dame
All depends on if Manning plays next season which I think he will. Adding depth along the front line to keep him out of harms way i a must. Martin can be plugged into the right side right away.
Houston - Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
Washington - Calvin Pryor S Louisville
Jacksonville - Derek Car QB Fresno St.
Cleveland - Odell Beckham Jr. LSU
Oakland - Kareem Martin OLB/DE
Atlanta - Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
Tampa Bay - Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame

Miami Dolphins - Xavier Su'a-Filo G UCLA
Arizona - Jack Mewhort OT Ohio St.

denver taking a tackle is... well, bad. really, really bad. we gave up the fewest sacks in the nfl, have 3 terrific tackles, and we should address that in the first with a player who won't start behind a very young player? come. on.
also, your formatting (or lack thereof) makes this really difficult to read.

hate the saints first round reasoning and dislike the pick. Murphy is too much of a rushing upfield player and we already have that in Gallette. With Murphy we almost have a 5-2 base.
zach martin and donte moncrief would be sweet picks
Saints 2014 draft wish list:
- No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
- Corner or Wideout in the first
- No reaching
- No Kelvin Benjamin
