    ROUND 1

    (0-5)Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The prior regime in Jacksonville traded into the top-10 of the 2011 NFL Draft for Blaine Gabbert, but if the Jaguars are again stuck with a top-five pick next May, it's hard to believe they would pass up a quarterback here. Bridgewater tests off the charts in several categories, including toughness, intelligence and poise and has the talent to step in from day one and be "the guy" in Jacksonville.
    (0-4)Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon: Head coach Greg Schiano inherited Josh Freeman when he was hired as the Buccaneers head coach and it didn't take long for the coach to replace Freeman at quarterback with third rounder Mike Glennon. Mariota doesn't scream pro-style quarterback, but teams are more willing than ever to gamble on athletic, high-ceiling quarterbacks.
    (0-4)Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M: The Steelers have several holes on the roster, but it's hard to overlook all the issues on the offensive line. It would be tough for them to pass on a prospect as good as Matthews.
    4. NY GIANTS
    (0-5)Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: One of the keys to the Giants' success over the years has been their ability to put pressure on the pocket off the edges, but New York currently ranks 31st in the NFL with five sacks over the first five games. And if Clowney is still available with this pick then it's a no-brainer, assuming they're comfortable with his effort concerns.
    5. NY JETS
    (3-2)Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA: The Jets are a tough team to figure out because they have several roster weaknesses on both sides of the ball. A quarterback isn't out of the question with this pick, but assuming the Jets are content with rookie Geno Smith for another season, an impact pass rusher like Barr would make a lot of sense.
    (2-3)Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan: The Raiders' roster is in flux with several holes and young, unproven players on the depth chart so Oakland could go in a number of directions with a high pick. Oakland was reportedly set to take an offensive tackle last April if Fisher or Joeckel were still on the board, making Lewan an option here.
    (2-3)Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M: First off, Johnny Football in the Top 10? It's certainly possible and how much fun would he be in Chip Kelly's offense? Manziel's backyard style of football is far from traditional, but his cocky, quick-thinking approach to the position just might fit what Kelly wants to do in Philly.
    (1-3)Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA: Minnesota is stuck in quarterback mediocrity with Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel and newly acquired Josh Freeman. So it's safe to say that the Vikings quarterback of the future isn't on the current roster and Hundley brings a lot of potential to the next level.
    (1-3)Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson: Can the Panthers really go another offseason without finding more weapons for Cam Newton? Watkins is a playmaker with the ball in his hands and would instantly help Carolina move the ball downfield.
    (2-3)C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama: The Bills have found themselves an impact middle linebacker with Kiko Alonso and could upgrade the outside linebacker spot with a player of Mosley's caliber.

    (2-3)Trent Murphy, DE, Stanford: The Cowboys have received better-than-expected production from their front-four, but besides DeMarcus Ware, Dallas' defensive line could use some help. Murphy is used to standing up as a rush linebacker but could put his hand on the ground as a defensive end.

    Have seen 3 Stanford games and got 1 more to watch but he is a perfect sde for this scheme IMO. Can play the run well, even drop in coverage( he is playing OLB in a 3-4 right now and de on passing downs) and is explosive off the edge. Great motor , seems to play in the backfield. I don't think anybody could be unhappy with that selection[/quote]

    I know I'll get skewered for this, but Trent Murphy has a lot of Jared Allen in him................except the mullet. The kid just flat out produces on the highest level at a big-time program. 40 times be damned, I would LOVE to have this kid in Dallas.

    I would really like that pick at 20.

    Also, no way the Bucs go QB at 2 if they like Glennon. That doesn't make any sense at all. They go Clowney or trade down.

    Since being elevated to GM 5 years ago Mark Dominik has hired Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano. To major flops as head coaches.

    Dominik and Schiano may both be out after this season. If that's the case the new regime will have no allegiance to Glennon and may elect to take a QB.

    Good point, though I think there is enough to like about Glennon to not go QB at #2

    I still think this team ends up drafting mid teens.

    It's a tough situation, but if you are bad enough to pick 2nd, and like the QB available.....take him

    I mean that team could end up scoring 28 points every game the rest of the way and not win another one. You can hardly blame the QB for that.

    It's certainly possibile, but how often does a team perform that well on offense, and pick that high? And if they are scoring that much, and losing, how many times per game is the QB turning the ball over?

    I hope the Giants win enough games to get out of Clowney range, knowing there luck they'll end up with him.

    Looks like now he's got Dallas taking the FS from Alabama. Not sure I like that idea in R1. He says an immediate upgrade over Barry Church, but Church is one of the few bright spots on this defense IMO. Gotta go DL.

    I think it was a big mistake picking Schiano over Schottenheimer. I'm a big fan of Marty and would be on board to bring him in if the Cowboys were at the same stage as the Bucs were.
