School Notes
1
Carolina Panthers Marcell Dareus
DT
Alabama Fluid pick; not buying Cam Newton here yet; don't think Blaine Gabbert is an option
2
Denver Broncos Patrick Peterson
CB
LSU DL help a strong possibility; Nick Fairley? Marcell Dareus is the pick if available
3
Buffalo Bills Cam Newton
QB
Auburn Need to generate some buzz; Buddy Nix reportedly high on Newton
4
Cincinnati Bengals Blaine Gabbert
QB
Missouri Convinced Carson Palmer won't return, leaving CIN in a tough spot at QB
5
Arizona Cardinals Von Miller
OLB
Texas A&M Best edge rusher in the draft
6
Cleveland Browns A.J. Green
WR
Georgia Not sold on this pick; could be a DL Da'Quan Bowers?
7
San Francisco 49ers Robert Quinn
DE
North Carolina Will have to pick up a QB later in the draft; Prince Amukamara a strong candidate
8
Tennessee Titans Nick Fairley
DT
Auburn Robert Quinn probably the pick if available; QB can wait
9
Dallas Cowboys Prince Amukamara
CB
Nebraska Jerry Jones gets the second best cornerback in the draft
10
Washington Redskins Julio Jones
WR
Alabama Big-play WR a must; could address QB, OT or CB
11
Houston Texans Aldon Smith
OLB
Missouri Moving to a 3-4 and need an edge rusher; more pressure will help the secondary
12
Minnesota Vikings Da'Quan Bowers
DE
Clemson Hard to envision Bowers slipping this far, but knee concerns and inconsistent play could cause fall
13
Detroit Lions Cameron Jordan
DE
California Nate Solder? Akeem Ayers? Tyron Smith?
14
St. Louis Rams Akeem Ayers
OLB
UCLA No more shot at Julio Jones here; address the DE position; DT possible, too.
15
Miami Dolphins Mark Ingram
RB
Alabama Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown both UFAs; Ingram can take pressure off QB situation
16
Jacksonville Jaguars Ryan Kerrigan
DE
Purdue Jags once again desperately in need of a pass rusher
17
New England Patriots (from OAK) Anthony Castonzo
OT
Boston College RB possible here - tackle need goes away if Matt Light returns
18
San Diego Chargers J.J. Watt
DE
Wisconsin Fills a need at DE and should be an immediate upgrade; RT, LB and WR remain options
19
New York Giants Nate Solder
OT
Colorado WR, LB may draw consideration
20
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Adrian Clayborn
DE
Iowa Desperately need a pass-rushing end; CB a high priority now?
21
Kansas City Chiefs Tyron Smith
OT
USC Bulked up and could play LT for a team, but I'm not sold. Workout warrior but still just OK on tape
22
Indianapolis Colts Corey Liuget
DT
Illinois Daniel Muir and Antonio Johnson both FAs; OT possible; Muhammad Wilkerson?
23
Philadelphia Eagles Jimmy Smith
CB
Colorado CB desperate need; OL, LB possibilities
24
New Orleans Saints Muhammad Wilkerson
DT
Temple Anthony Hargrove likely leaving; hard to count on Shaun Rogers at this point
25
Seattle Seahawks Jake Locker
QB
Washington Could be Ryan Mallett; Locker's Pro Day solidified a first-round spot in my eyes
26
Baltimore Ravens Justin Houston
OLB
Georgia Will fill the role they were hoping Sergio Kindle could have
27
Atlanta Falcons Derek Sherrod
OT
Mississippi State Can play RT; DE, OLB, CB all possibilities
28
New England Patriots Torrey Smith
WR
Maryland Had Mikel LeShoure here; believing there is a bigger need for WR in NE than once thought
29
Chicago Bears Gabe Carimi
OT
Wisconsin Chicago desperately needs to strengthen their front five; DT, CB possibilities
30
New York Jets Cameron Heyward
DE
Ohio State Shaun Ellis and Trevor Pryce both set to become a UFAs; could consider WR or CB
31
Pittsburgh Steelers Aaron Williams
CB
Illinois Three of their top four CBs are set to become UFAs; OT, OG possible options
32
Green Bay Packers Christian Ballard
DE
Iowa Need to do something at DE with Cullen Jenkins a UFA and Johnny Jolly's troubles
