TheCount's Pre-Combine 1st Round Mock
1 Chiefs - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Hard not to spend the 1st overall pick on a position other than QB when your #1 need is QB.
2 Jaguars - Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
Last in the league in sacks last year.
3 Raiders - Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Could potentially lose both their starting DT's.
4 Eagles - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Jason Peters is coming back from a pretty bad injury. At worst, one of them plays RT.
5 Lions - Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
They'd be overjoyed to have Moore here, as Cliff Avril is in a situation very similar to Anthony Spencer.
6 Browns - Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
They need a play maker on the defensive Front 7.
7 Cardinals - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
Their line, like our line, has been a debacle for years.
8 Bills - Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California
Their GM, Buddy Nix, is on record as saying they'd draft a franchise QB even after giving out a contract to Fitzpatrick.
9 Jets - Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
I'm sure they'd love to add ANOTHER QB, but Barkley was taken right before them and thus saves them from themselves.
10 Titans - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
They need o-line help, but Titans have a long history of favoring D help over O help.
11 Chargers - Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
Their line may be worse than ours, but unfortunately for them, the top 2 tackles are off the board.
12 Dolphins - Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Sean Smith wants to get paid and Richard Marshall just had back surgery.
13 Buccaneers - Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
They could really use a new, young CB after losing Talib to.. insanity and Barber to age, but they might favor pass rush over DB help in the 3-4 if they lose Bennett.
14 Panthers - Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
DT help is long overdue for the Panthers.
15 Saints - Kenny Vaccaro, SS, Texas
They'd love to add a sure fire 3-4 OLB, but their secondary is probably a bigger mess. I've got a feeling Vacarro is going to work out well at the combine and raise his stock just a bit more.
16 Rams - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
They should keep Amendola, but there's no reason he should be their #1 receiver. Patterson is healthier than Allen going into the draft and has tons of upside.
17 Steelers - Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young
Ziggy Ansah replaces Ziggy Hood, who does not offer much in terms of a pass rush.
18 Cowboys - Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
With the top DT's and DE's off the board, Cowboys turn to improving the o-line.
19 Giants - Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame
Considered a potential Top 15 prospect before the fake dead girlfriend saga, Giants are happy to land Te'o.
20 Bears - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
Bears need some offensive line help badly, and with Te'o off the board - the decision is made for them.
21 Bengals - Alec Ogletree, OLB, Georgia
Ogletree drops because of his character concerns… but we all know the Bengals don't give a damn about character concerns.
22 Rams (from Redskins) - D.J. Fluker, Alabama
After landing a feature WR earlier in the 1st, the Ram's double dip on offense and bring in some oline help.
23 Vikings - Keenan Allen, WR, California
If word is true and they are trying to get rid of Percy, they will need a replacement unless they plan on forcing Ponder to keep throwing to just his tightened.
24 Colts - John Jenkins, DT, Georgia
Switching to the 3-4, so they acquire a key kog - the massive NT.
25 Seahawks - Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
Knowing Carrol, he'll probably end up making a big, unconventional splash here - but they do need some DT help.
26 Packers - Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
They played musical chairs with their RB situation all of last year, probably about time they addressed the position.
27 Texans - Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU
Bradie James is starting opposite Cushing, time to get younger.
28 Broncos - Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama
Like the Panthers, DT help is long overdue. Williams may not be much of a pass rush threat, but he'll free up their LB's.
29 Patriots - DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
They are playing hard ball with Welker.
30 Falcons - Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
They need a strong side DE, especially after releasing Ray Edwards. John Abraham has still got some juice but he's 35.
31 49ers - Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
They need quite a bit of DB help, so maybe they go Elam here but Banks is probably a better prospect at a more important position than SS.
32 Ravens - Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
Boldin's cap number is high and I'm sure they'll try to make something work, but if not, Austin is a rocket ship that's gonna wow at the combine and they will want to keep weapons around Flacco.
Thoughts welcome, as always.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
