The Mock to End All Mocks

Round 1

  1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
    It sounds increasingly likely that Clowney will be the pick because he makes defensive coaches like Bill O’Brien wet their pants based off his potential.

  2. St. Louis Rams: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
    While I have doubted MEziel because he likes to throw the ball up for grabs way too often, makes horrible reads. This pick shows they likely have given up on Bradford.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
    Justin Blackmon is done in Jacksonville so adding the Top WR in the draft to replace him would likely be a wise decision seeing as even if they draft a QB here they would have limited weaponry.

  4. Cleveland Browns: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
    Josh Gordon is a beast but he has had some off the field problems so his future is somewhat in question so adding another Top tier WR like Evans, the man who built the Johnny Fucking Football legend, would not only be good insurance but it would also get another reliable target for whatever QB they have starting.

  5. Oakland Raiders: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
    The Raiders let Vedhleer walk during FA and made a horrible decision to try and sign Saffold to a big time deal to replace him fortunately for the Raiders he failed a physical and was sent packing so they still need a LT.

  6. Atlanta Falcons: Khalil Mack, DE\OLB, Buffalo
    Mack is the best defensive player in the draft and will provide the Falcons with a defensive force equal to if not greater than Clowney but with more versatile. They will be thanking their lucky stars that the Texans were unwilling to make a deal.

  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aaron Donald, DT, PITT
    Gerald McCoy is growing into his own when he is healthy but adding a running mate on the inside of the DLine will not only help him but also Clayborn in creating a dominate DLine that will make Matt Ice melt, Brees will blow away , and Cam Newton will need another ankle surgery if this works out.

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF
    As Vegas would say Bortles is our Density. Bortles has nearly limitless potential and pairing him with QB mastermind Norv Turner could create a fearsome offense that no other team could compete with, if it works out and if not it will ruin Petey’s remaining years, but you know what they say you can’t win if you don’t play.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Haha (Hasean) Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
    The Bills lost Jarius Byrd so they may look into an early replacement and Hasean is the best safety in the draft so he’s the pick.

  10. Detroit Lions: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
    Again they would probably like a WR to pair with Cal John but no one is worth it here and they would be better off trying to get rid of the huge whole in their defense that is known as their secondary.

  11. Tennessee Titans: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    Dennard is a beast when playing press cover, which is the way that the NFL’s defense are moving towards using more often.

  12. New York Giants: Zach Martin, OT/G
    Eli is hurt and needs to be provided protection before he breaks apart and this is not to mention that Eli turns to shit if he is getting hit so the best move is to get a guy who can play nearly all the OLine positions similar to what they did last year with Pugh.

  13. St. Louis Rams: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
    They probably would have liked a WR but no guys remaining are worth it and Matthews is a helluva consolation prize. He will give them a reliable LT in the wake of Jake Long tearing his ACL and it would not be a good idea to rely on him to protect either Bradford who is coming off of his own ACL tear or Manziel.

  14. Chicago Bears: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
    Pryor is the Best player who can help with the big deficiency that is the Bears’ secondary. Maybe if they didn’t give up as many points as they score they could be a dominant team.

  15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA
    The Steelers defense lacks speed so adding one of the top speed rusher could be very beneficial to them. He could act similar to Troy Poly-molly in moving around and attacking from out of nowhere to bury QBs.

  16. Dallas Cowboys: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
    The Cowboys got Henry Melton and resign Anthony Spencer in FA but they would be smart to add an explosive guy who can cause havoc in the middle allowing those two to kill QBs.

  17. Baltimore Ravens: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana
    The quickest rising player in the draft brings some extra explosive potential to the Ravens defense. While Torrey Smith is a great WR he needs a running mate so Flacco is not at a loss when he is covered.

  18. New York Jets: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU
    The Jets need to add weapons for whoever their QB is. Beckham has some of the best hands around and will provide a reliable outlet for whatever QB is starting that week.

  19. Miami Dolphins: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
    The Dolphins OLine has been ravage by the whole “bully situation” and they never had a LT last year anyways. No one will ever question Lewan’s toughness but he will need someone to real him in, but if he is controlled properly he will make Phin fans about the GOOD Jake Long years.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    Bruce Arians believes in Carson Palmer at least publically but he is a smart man who has been around and improving QBs long enough to know that Palmer will not lead his team to the promise land but he can still be a good mentor for someone with Carr’s skill level for a year or so.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
    J’Michael Finley is moving on along with his horribly messed up neck so the Packers need to find a replacement and Ebron is supposed to be the TE in the draft so he’s the pick, although some could argue they have other pressing needs the Pack’s GM is one of the key proprietors of the BPA philosophy.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
    DJax is gone and now the closest thing to a Top WR is Riley Cooper so adding an explosive dynamic WR like Cooks would be easily the smartest move Kelly could do seeing as no Safety is around this price point.

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
    The BEST CB in the draft is snagged up by a team that knows that height doesn’t make a CB great as shown by Brandon Flowers. Verrett is basically Winfield with better coverage skills.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virgina
    The Bengals secondary has been held together by duct tape, super glue, bubble gum, and former DC Mike Zimmer but seeing as he has moved on to be the Vikings HC it might be a good idea if they bring in some young blood to compete with Hall and nearing 1st round bust Kirkpatrick.

  25. San Diego Chargers: Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA
    Philip Rivers saw a career resurgence last season when his new GM got him some OLine help so thinking of how well he could do if the improved the remaining crappyness that exist along the OLine. Su’a-Filo can play nearly all the positions on the OLine but he would have the most success if he played OG.

  26. Cleveland Browns: C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
    Former MLB D’Qwell Jackson was released by the Browns which opens up a hole in the middle of their defense as well as a lack of leadership so adding a highly talented team first guy like Mosley would be a great way to placate the loss of Jackson if he stays healthy, which is why he is going this low. (I can see this trade to the Redskins for their 2nd and Kirk Cousins but not putting in trades because that is stupid and unpredictable.)

  27. New Orleans Saints: Ryan Shaizer, LB, Ohio State
    The Saints have been building a decent 3-4 defense but they could really go to the next level if they could get a speedy attack out of anywhere rush LB and Shaizer fits that pretty well with the added benefit of coverage skills.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
    The Panthers have no WRs outside of the old guys they brought in during FA and that just will not do when trying to help your young promising QB continue to grow.

  29. New England Patriots: Louis Nix III, NT, Norte Dame
    The Patriots current NT Vince Wilfork is pretty old and has asked for his release so bringing in his replacement early could be a great idea. Nix is a prime example of what a NT should look like with an extra bit of burst. While he won’t play all 3 downs he will be a dominant 2 down run stuffing block eating monster.

  30. San Francisco 49ers: Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburg
    Yes this pick makes no sense but then again they did pick a 4th round WR in the first a 2 years ago and then gave up on him a year later. Harbaugh takes a chance to develop Savage as either insurance if Krappy-dick continues to fail to evolve as a passer and possible trade bait if Krappy works out and Savage looks decent in a year or two.

  31. Denver Broncos: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois
    The Broncos offense was considered one of the best ever but they fell flat on their face during the SB, but that is not the problem with the Broncos instead it is their vaunted defense that needs improvement. If they can somehow add a Stud safety like Ward it would give them a bit more leeway in how they cover WR and TE because he is the kind of guy who can turn a potential bad play into a great one.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Dominique Easley, DE/DT, Florida
    The SeaChicks have very little needs so they could take the risk on the highly talented health risk that is Easley. If Easley can stay healthy he could be the steal of the draft.

Round 2

  1. Houston Texans: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
    The Texans need a QB and their HC heavily worked out Jimmy G. before his pro day work out took place and Billy O seemed to like what he saw. Plus why not have the guy who has been compared to Romo play at the pro level in the same state.

  2. Washington Redskins: Joel Bitonio, OT/G, Nevada
    If protected RGIII can be a dominate player so adding a versatile OLinemen who can play many position would be a great idea.

  3. Cleveland Browns: Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU
    The Browns chose Trent Richardson a couple years ago and the pick was a bust so now they need to add a young RB who can take the pressure off of whoever the QB is going to be. Hill besides being a powerful runner also has pretty good hands so not only will teams have to worry about Gordon and Watkins burning them they will have to keep honest and watch him every play meaning likely single coverage on one of those WRs.

  4. Oakland Raiders: LeMarcus Joyner, CB/S, FSU
    The Raiders secondary is a bit of a mess so adding a guy who can play multiple positions would be a great way to mitigate this weakness.

  5. Atlanta Falcons: Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon
    The Falcons could not swing a deal to trade up for Clowney and so they settled for a LT in the 1st so now that they are in a more favorable situation to take a young DE they snag the very impressive Crichton.

  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
    The Bucs traded away their overpaid no.2 WR so they will likely aim for a young guy to pair with VJax for whoever their starting QB is. Matthews possess the size that Lovie Smith loves in his WR which is an added bonus.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    The Jags need a QB and they seem to really like what Bridgewater brings to the table as in a pro ready guy with pretty decent leadership qualities.

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
    Every team needs three starter worthy CBs but currently the Vikings have 2-ish, the reason for the ish is because Rhodes is still growing into the position and Munnerlynn is more of a slot guy/no.2 CB so adding a guy with as much potential as Desir would be a great move. Now he has not played the talent level of the top guys he is still capable of being a shut-down CB with some coaching and Zim knows how to get the best out of his guys.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
    Young QBs need security blankets so adding the very reliable Amaro would be smart as it will help speed along Manuel’s growth as a potential Franchise QB.

  10. Tennessee Titans: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB/DE Georgia Tech
    The Titans are rumored to be heading towards a 3-4 defense so the obviously need a rush LB and that is where Attaochu comes in.

  11. N.Y. Giants: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
    The Giants have many needs but they almost always target BPA so that is why even with a heavily fortified DLine they will still pick up the uber talented Ealy if he is there.

  12. St. Louis Rams: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
    The Rams secondary needs improvement after the massively underwhelming performance by Finnegan so adding another feisty CB to pair with Jenkins and Johnson would be a good idea seeing as Johnson is only a no.3 CB.

  13. Detroit Lions: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
    The Lions want to get a WR early to pair with CalJohn so getting a steal like Moncrief in the second will make little QB Chipmunk-face happy seeing as he won’t get shut down if Johnson is not open.

  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ra’Shede Hagemen, DE\DT, Minnesota
    Hagemen should go earlier than this but if he falls this far the Steelers will snatch him up in a second giving their defense something it has been lacking for a while and that is speed and youth. Hagemen will be an angry big man after so many teams passed on him that he likely will be the defensive rookie of the year.

  15. Dallas Cowboys: JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee
    What do you need to add when your QB is coming back from injury? Well it is easy an improved OLine so as not to let him get hurt again. James will be the pick to replace Free at RT allowing him to move inside solidifying two positions with one pick.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
    The Ravens offense is a time based as requires a shit ton of time for the WRs to get open so they should add some girth on the OLine and Moses is pretty damn big. If he can refine his skills he will make blindside DBag Oher irrelevant.

  17. N.Y. Jets: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    They added the flash early with Beckham but now they bring in the reliability in Robinson. He will give them the big body guy they thought they were getting when they selected Hill a few years back.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Keith McGill, CB, Utah
    Every team is likely to copy the Seahawks defense of big bodied CBs to compete against the ever growing size of WRs. McGill needs refining but if he can live up to his hype he could be a no.2 CB in which the Phins have lacked since trading away Davis.

  19. Chicago Bears: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
    Again the Bears need to provide youth to their secondary and so adding a young reliable CB like Gaines would be smart. He doesn’t take many risks but this means he doesn’t make many mistakes either.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State
    The Cards for years have had a shitty OLine and only finally have they addressed it by bringing in the talented FA LT Veldheer but they can still add some youth to the interior of the OLine. If given time even Carson Palmer can lead a team to the playoffs.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
    The Pack could use some secondary help but no one left is worthy of this pick so they take the B “Defensive” PA and that is Van Noy. He will provide insurance just in case Perry or Matthews get sidelined again.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Terrence Brooks, S, FSU
    The Eagles secondary is a joke so they could be willing to take Brooks even though it is likely to be considered a reach.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina
    Michael Johnson moved on to the Bucs in FA so it left a void that needs to be filled. Now people will say they have Hunt for that but if he moves up as a starter they will then lack a backup. Either way Martin and Hunt will compete and the best guy will start and the other will be a great rotational guy.

  24. San Francisco 49ers: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    Rumor has it the 9ers want a WR so why not bring in the local kid who broke records as the no.2 WR behind Crabtree.

  25. San Diego Chargers: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
    SJB is another one of those big bodied CBs that the NFL is moving towards and the Chargers secondary has let them down during many games so why not add someone who can help them stop the bleeding of points.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Chris Smith, OLB, Arkansas
    They already added Shazier in this mock so you may ask why another LB well while Shaizer will give you the wow factor you still need a reliable guy like Smith.

  27. Indianapolis Colts: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State
    Luck is a really good young QB but like all QBs without quality protection he cannot do what he does to the best of his abilities so adding the mammoth Jackson will assist him in that as well as opening up massive holes for any RB they have.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Marcus Martin, C, USC
    Most of the Panthers’ OLine is well aged and many of them are contemplating retirement so getting a talented young guy like Martin in now to learn the system and steal knowledge from the elderly statesmen will only make the team better in the long run.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford
    By now everybody has heard how moronic Aldon Smith is so it might be a good idea to find a possible replacement and I am sure Harbaugh would enjoy having one of his old players on his pro team.

  30. New England Patriots: Troy Niklas, TE, Norte Dame
    The Patriots offense last season was a joke when they were without Gronk and mister tough guy murderer so adding a young TE without injury or character concerns would be advised.

  31. Denver Broncos: Jaylen Watkins, CB, Florida
    The forgotten, yet still the best, Florida CB should be the pick here to help the awful secondary of the Broncos.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Billy Turner, OT/G, North Dakota
    It is always a good idea to invest in versatile OLinemen and Turner is no exception seeing as he can play 3 positions on the OLine minus LT and C.

  1. Nicely done. It looks like you put a lot of work into this. With that said, I have a few criticisms.
    1. Unless the Rams trade away Bradford before their pick, there is no way they draft a QB with an early pick.
    2. That goes double for the 49ers. Fans would storm the field if the team thought it was a good idea to replace Kaeppernick, especially with a first round pick on a UFA talent.
    3. The Browns need a QB and don’t pick one with three chances in your mock? How can they be less stupid about getting a new signal caller than these other two teams who don’t even need one?
    4. Dominant

    • Bradford has no future in St. Louis, but they will be stuck with him as a backup for another year because of his price tag. Then toss him when it drops to under 4 mil next season.
      Kaeppernick is gonna want a lot of money but has not developed at all since his first start.
      Either they will trade their 1st to the Redskins for their second and Cousins or they get Mettenbeger, maybe McCarron, in the 3rd. Yes he will fall because of his ACL injury and failing the drug test at the combine.

      • Unless he has a breakout year, Bradford’s price tag is going way down on his next deal. He’s a serviceable starter, and the Rams would be stupid to throw that away with either of their first round picks this year. There’s way too much potential to improve other areas of the team for them to be that short-sighted.

        Meanwhile, Kaeppernick made the playoffs in his first 2 years as a starter, took his team to the Super Bowl in his first year, and has a 3-2 post season record. That’s pretty impressive for a young 2nd rounder. If the 49ers can’t work out a contract for him, they’d be better off waiting until that is set in stone and get their new QB in 2015.

    Interesting how they decide to knock Floyd out of the first round altogether, just because our coaches were inept at how to utilize and develop young talent early. Going into the draft, Floyd was a top-5 talent.

  3. This draft is going to be so fun. QB’s being shopped around all over the place absolutely anything can happen. I’d be very happy with Bortles though Roger. I’ll do anything not to watch Matt Cassel at TCF. Also I’ve come around to the idea of drafting a running back as apparently Adrian will start earning crazy money in the next couple of years will he be willing to take a pay cut if we still haven’t got a QB? Spielman also said Norv would like a 2-back system.

  4. I hope the league doesnt make us wait even longer for the draft next year and where is bridgewater,I wonder if he will really fall out of the first 2 rounds.Hes still the QB I would draft.

  5. ‘Twas the night before the draft, and all around the North
    Vikings fans wondered what magic Spielman will bring forth.
    Will he trade up? Will he trade down?
    What kind of talent will he bring to town?
    Weeks of rumors, speculation, and misdirection
    will come to an end as he makes his first selection.
    The Vikings need a secondary to shut down the pass
    but also a quarterback who will give our team class.
    We’ve been linked to Bortles, Bridgewater, and Savage
    but ProDays showed they may be only better than average.
    This draft was supposed to be deep with skilled quarterbacks
    but they all seem to be turning out just a bit better than hacks.
    Perhaps we’re better off simply drafting all D?
    We scored plenty last year, just got outscored, you see.
    We’ll know in a day, just what Rick has planned.
    If he screws THIS one up, he’ll likely get canned.

  6. Oh, oh– just read how Manziel feels “ghosts” and runs– sounds a bit like a panic-attack similar to Ponder. Maybe we should take a tough big guy like Bortles or Bridgewater. I like Bridgewater– a good kid.

  7. Thanks for asking, IA….The docs seemed stumped on this one, but I don’t care. No symptoms other than weight loss.
    On the bright side, last weekend I ate a 2 rib prime rib, 2 dozen beer and an entire cherry cheesecake…..and lost a lb.

  8. (True story)…..
    One doctor, who specializes in genetics, had this conversation with me……
    (Doctor)…” Nova, (not my actual name)…did either of your parents suffer from this malady ” ?
    (Me)….” Well, the problem is that my dad slept around a lot so we don’t know who the mother is “.

    Some doctors have NO sense of humor.
