    It's never too early.....

    1. Houston Texans -- Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon: The Texans didn't draft a quarterback until the fourth round this year, but if Mariota had declared, I think he would have been their No. 1 selection over Jadeveon Clowney.

    2. Washington Redskins -- Leonard Williams, DT, Southern Cal: From an athleticism standpoint, Williams is close to elite for a defensive lineman and his football ability seems to get better with each game – sky is the limit.

    3. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska: One of my favorites, Gregory is still learning and needs to get stronger, but he shows flashes of Jason Pierre Paul when he was a young rusher at South Florida.

    4. Cleveland Browns -- Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford: Joel Bitonio and Mitchell Schwartz are both guards in my opinion, making right tackle a need area. Peat can fill that spot as a rookie and eventually be the Browns' left tackle.

    5. Oakland Raiders -- Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa: A mean, nasty player, Scherff would have been a first rounder this year and if he continues to develop in pass protection, he could end up in the top-10 next year.

    6. Atlanta Falcons -- Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan State: A player who emerged last season as an impact pass rusher, Calhoun will go this high if he takes the next step in his development, building off last year's stats (14.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 18 QB Hurries).

    7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State: Winston has the skills to be the No. 1 overall pick, but he has room to grow on the field and needs to keep his nose clean off the field.

    8. Minnesota Vikings -- Landon Collins, S, Alabama: After starting nine games last year, look for Collins to command more of a leadership role in 2014 and have a bigger impact than 2014 first rounder, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

    9. Cleveland Browns (from BUF) -- Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama: Cleveland's wide receiver situation is somewhat of a concern right now and while there isn't an A.J. Green type of prospect next year, Cooper is an exciting pass catcher.

    10. Detroit Lions -- Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State: With Nick Fairley expected to test the free agent waters, Bennett could be a possible long-term replacement.

    11. Tennessee Titans -- Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA: While still very raw, Hundley has a full tool box and if he takes the next step in his development in 2014, look for him to be a top-12 pick next year.

    12. New York Giants -- Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M: Another draft, another first round Texas A&M first round offensive tackle, making it three straight years with the Aggies producing a blocker in the top-32 picks.

    13. St. Louis Rams -- Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon: The Rams have spent several high round draft picks on defense and I don't expect that to stop, especially if a player as good as Ekpre-Olomu is here.

    14. Chicago Bears -- Devonte Fields, DE, TCU: There is no such thing as too much pass rush and although Fields has some immature qualities, this would be a great fit for him to learn under Jared Allen.

    15. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson: Pittsburgh has rebuilt their linebacker group the past two years in the first round (Jarvis Jones, Ryan Shazier) and Beasley could continue those efforts.

    16. Dallas Cowboys -- P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State: An emerging superstar last season, Williams was the Defensive Player of the Game in the BCS Title Game and has a big future ahead of him as a versatile defensive back.

    If there's a QB they like, they need to take him. Otherwise, keep building the DL.

    8. Cleveland Browns

    Edge player Vic Beasley, Clemson - Paul Kruger can be cut to save money at any point after the 2014 season. Beasley and Barkevious Mingo would offer a dynamic edge rushing duo. Beasley has plenty of edge speed, but also displays an inside arm bar to keep his opponent on skates.

    9. St. Louis Rams

    QB Connor Cook, Michigan State - A surprise name for the third quarterback off the board? Possible, but I thinkBryce Petty and Brett Hundley are extremely overrated at this point. Cook really impressed me last year, and hopefully his development continues.

    10. Tampa Bay Bucs

    Edge player Randy Gregory, Nebraska - Gregory started coming on strong last season, and I expect his development to continue. He flashes strength and speed around the edge.

    11. Atlanta Falcons

    Edge player Shawn Oakman, Baylor - My dude. Oakman will have a full-time role in 2014. Watch out. He has great speed and extremely strong hands to keep his opponent off balance and on skates.

    12. Dallas Cowboys

    Edge player Devonte Fields, TCU - Fields had a troubled 2014 campaign. However, the talent is there. The Cowboys could be desperate for edge rushing help.

    same players available in the Brugler one and we may have to draft Todd Gurley. Great player and probable need next year.

    I'm also big on Jaelen Strong WR Arizona State (a Cowboys fan), Mario Edwards Jr DE Florida State, and Shawn Oakman DE Baylor.

    The only way we draft CB in the first round next year is if either Claiborne or Carr is gone.

    Both are possible. Claiborne's contract/cap hit breaks even next off-season and Carr will count $12M plus in 2015 and could be a candidiate for a June 1st designation. Hopefully both players perform at a level this next season that will justify their 2015 contracts.

    Mariota, Winston, and Hundley will get most of the notoriety, but look for the Cowboys to be interested in QB's Sean Mannion or Bryce Petty. Both big, smart pocket passers that Garrett will probably like. And they'll likely be more in our range, too.

    As a Baylor fan I would love to have Petty on the Cowboys. He's also probably going to be better off sitting for a year or two so that works out assuming Romo's back doesn't force him to retire soon.
    Also the RG3 vs Petty on rival teams would be an interesting dynamic.

    impossible to say who will be where in the order, who will declare early, what each team's need are, etc.

    I will wait until around December to start thinking about this

    Why do they use the same draft order? It makes no sense. If you're gonna waste your time guessing who will get picked, why not also guess where each team will pick?

    They had a top one drop in their laps this year. I figure to draft a top one, it will cost quite a bit more then the 16th pick. I have serious doubts that Jerry is willing to invest what will be needed to draft a top QB prospect. He has never shown that he was willing to do it in the past. He will spend a lower round pick and hope to get lucky. I see some post-Aikman type years coming in the near future.

    Yeah, good quarterback options don't come around every year and careers can end suddenly. By next year then need to start thinking about an eventual successor to Romo.

    I suspect that 2014 will produce a round 1 WLB unless Carter shows this team something.

    Mannion is one to watch, especially if Garrett returns.

    There is nothing implied. They just used the exact same order as the 2014 draft.
