Football Guy Mock Draft 1.0

Mar 25, 2014 2:15 AM EST

The NFL Draft is over a month away, but if you keep up with the game like me you know that most writers have already created at least two mock drafts already.  Being the sensible football fanatic that I am, I am waiting an entire five and a half weeks before the draft to give you all a mock draft (you’re welcome).  This draft includes trades and a brief explanation of each pick and trade.  I’ll post another updated mock in a couple weeks, but I am 99.99997 % sure this is exactly how the first round of the draft will work out come May.  Fans of complete sentences should stop reading here.  Get excited!

1. Texans- Jadaveon Clowney
     - Put with JJ Watt and Wreak Havoc on defense.  QB in 2nd round.
2. Rams- Greg Robinson
     - Keep Bradford Upright.
3. Jaguars- Teddy Bridgewater
     - Quiet face of quiet franchise.  And they'll probably draft Garrapalo or Carr in 3rd.
4. Browns- Johnny Manziel
     - Can inject life back into this franchise.
5. Raiders- Sammy Watkins
     - Instant juice for a juiceless offense, paired with a All-Pro defense…from 2007.
6. Falcons- Jake Matthews
     - Keep Ryan Upright.
7. Titans- Blake Bortles (trade w/ Buccaneers)
     - Jake Locker's time is running out.  He gets one more year.  Titans jump Vikes to steal their QB.
8. Vikings- Khalil Mack
     - Replace Jared Allen and get after Aaron Rodgers.
9. Bills- Eric Ebron
     - Short range weapon for Manuel.
10. Lions- Justin Gilbert
     - Seemingly foregone conclusion.
11. Buccaneers- Anthony Barr
     - Derrick Brooks, Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher…see where I'm going?
12. Giants- Taylor Lewan
     - Desperate for protection for Eli.
13. Rams- Mike Evans
     - Bigger receiver for Bradford.
14.  Bears- Aaron Donald
     - Fits too well in Bears scheme.
15. Packers- Calvin Pryor (Trade w/ Steelers)
     - Plug in starter for D who needs it.  Cowboys and Ravens need safety, so have to get ahead of them. 
16. Cowboys- Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
     - Cowboys finally answer the bell at safety.
17. Ravens- C.J. Mosely
     - Fits mold of dominant Ravens linebackers.
18. Jets- Marquise Lee
     - Jets continue to upgrade weapons for Geno and Vick.
19. Dolphins- Zach Martin
     - Offensive Line needs to be revamped.
20. Cardinals- Cyrus Kouandjio (not fun to spell)
     - With improved offensive line, cardinals are a threat.
21. Steelers- Darquez Dennard
     - Need help for AJ Green and Josh Gordon.
22. Eagles- Bradley Robey
     - Secondary is in shambles.
23. Chiefs- Austin Sefarian-Jenkins
     -  Most pick WR here, but Alex Smith doesn't use them...
24. Bengals- Dee Ford
     - Replacing Michael Johnson.
25. Chargers- Jason Verrett
     - More ammunition to stop Manning.
26. Browns- Carlos Hyde
     - Great fit, local product.
27. Saints- Kony Ealy
     - Replacement for Will Smith.
28. Panthers- Morgan Moses
     - Replacement for Jordan Gross.
29. Patriots- Louis Nix
     - Replacement for Vince Wilfork.
30. 49ers- Brandon Cooks
     - Need an explosive wide receiver with a Pac 10 connection.
31. Broncos- WR Jordan Matthews
     - Replacement for Decker.  Very productive receiver. 
32. Seahawks- Kelvin Benjamin
     - Bigger stronger Sidney Rice.  Red zone Threat.

There you have it!  Leave good feedback and I'll address you in the updated mock. 

Thanks!
