1. Carolina: Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri. If anything, the Super bowl finally settled the true importance of having a top flight QB. I’m not sold that he’s worth this pick(Trent Dilfer raving about him gives me pause on that conclusion), but I find it plausible that they would skip taking Fairley et al to keep from having Jimmy The Pickle start anymore.
2. Denver: Robert Quinn DL UNC. They are very tempted to take Fairley, but his conditioning issues even at a relatively low weight+Denver’s air=looking elsewhere.
3. Buffalo: Von Miller DE/OLB TAMU. Status quo ante
4. Cincinnati: Nick Fairley DT Auburn. They jump all over him.
5. Arizona: Marcell Dareus DL Alabama. Campbell and Dockett regressed(Campbell more than Branch), Branch is a UFA.
6. Cleveland: AJ Green WR UGA. Name their starting WRs.
7. San Francisco: Julio Jones WR Alabama. Crabtree is a talent, but is too inconsistent.
8. Tennessee: Patrick Peterson CB LSU. Finnegan is slowing down.
9. Dallas: Prince Amukarama CB Nebraska. They might try to dump Jenkins on someone dumb.
10. Washington: Aldon Smith DE/LB Missouri. Him or Clayborn with this pick, Smith will play a lot of 5 tech and OLB rusher. Also, with Clayborn and Smith here, expect New England to make a push to move up.
11. Houston: Adrian Clayborn DL Iowa. Phillips sends Shanahan a bouquet of flowers.
12. Minnesota: Derek Sherrod OT Miss State. McKinnie looks done. Loadholt probably needs to move inside.
13. Detroit: Quinton Carter FS Oklahoma. Schwartz’s defense needs…something… in the defensive backfield.
14. St Louis: Titus Young WR BSU. Still moving up the board. Him+Mark Clayton+Amedola is a pretty good corps of WRs.
15. Miami: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame. Medical red flag, but not having a chain mover in the middle of the field is killing their passing attack. Rudolph is huge and fast.
16. Jacksonville: Da’Quan Bowers DE Clemson. Status quo ante
17. New England(From Oakland): Mark Ingram Rb Alabama. Law firm/Woodhead isn’t enough, they need a real top flight RB.
18. San Diego: Leonard Hankerson WR Miami. They’re going to deal Vjax(or at least try to). They need to replace him with a deep strike WR.
19. New York Giants: Joseph Barksdale OT LSU. Status quo ante.
20. Tampa Bay: Mike Pouncey OG Florida. Whether or not they resign Joseph, they could use Pouncey.
21. Seattle: Ryan Mallett QB Arkansas. I don’t think that this is a good pick—they need OLmen more. But with Hasselback’s age and Whitehurst’s inconsistency, its logical.
22. Baltimore: Nate Solder OT Colorado. Assuming that they resign Wilson and sign an outside WR like Moss or Vjax.
23. New Orleans: Akeem Ayers OLB UCLA. They missed Fujita badly.
24. Indianapolis: Tyron Smith OT Southern Cal. Left tackle is THE priority for the Colts.
25. Philadelphia: Ryan Kerrigan DL Purdue. They need an Olineman more, but Reid can’t pass on tweener DLmen.
26. Kansas City: Cameron Jordan DL California. A tweener who can play at DT or DE. . I’m still not sold on him, but with Hali a UFA, they need to replace him to help him(if they resign him).
27. Atlanta: Jonathan Baldwin WR Pittsburgh. White needs a tag team buddy.
28. New England: JJ Watt DL Wisconsin. The kind of hard working 5 tech with decent physical tools that Belichick loves. However, if I were New England, I would gladly part with my 2 1sts to sign Lamar Woodley away from the Steelers.
29. Chicago: Ricky Stanzi QB Iowa. Status quo ante
30. New York Jets: Phil Taylor DL Baylor. Kris Jenkins is done, and that defense needs a center of gravity.
31. Pittsburgh: Marcus Cannon OG TCU. Kemoeatu is too hit/miss and they need a big presence in the middle of the line with Pouncey.
32. Green Bay: Mikel LeShoure RB Illinois. Grant, Starks and Jackson just aren’t the answer.
