1. Carolina: Marcell Dareus DT Alabama. They might take offers for Gabbert(or take him themselves), but Dareus makes the most sense for them.
2. Denver: Robert Quinn DE UNC. Status quo ante
3. Buffalo: Patrick Peterson CB LSU. They just can’t pass on the total package.
4. Cincinnati: Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri. Palmer appears to be serious about not returning.
5. Arizona: Von Miller 34 OLB TAMU. Rebuild time in Arizona…
6. Cleveland: Julio Jones WR Alabama. A real weapon to buld around.
7. San Francisco: Prince Amukarama CB Nebraska. Basically for the same reasons that I had them taking Peterson last week.
8. Arizona(projected trade[see below for more details]Tennessee gets picks 17 and 33): AJ Green WR UGA.
9. Dallas: Nick Fairley DL Auburn. They play him at 5 tech, but this is a disaster waiting to happen: a player with no discipline going to Jeruh’s Camp Enablement.
10. San Diego (projected trade with Washington, Washington gets pick 18, WR Vincent Jackson, the teams swap natural 2nds and Washington gets Seattle’s 3rd round pick): Aldon Smith DE/OLB Missouri. SD needs a pass rusher in the worst way with so many defensive free agents.
11. Houston: Phil Taylor NT Baylor. Shooting up the boards, Houston reaches a bit and solidifies their dline.
12. Philadelphia(projected trade with Minnesota, Minny gets pick 23, QB Kevin Kolb and DE Juqua Parker): Tyron Smith OT Southern Cal. Philly gets to dump spare parts on Minny and get their RT.
13. Detroit: Derek Sherrod OT Miss State. Stafford might be made of glass, but he runs for his life too much.
14. St Louis: Quinton Carter FS Oklahoma. They need to replace Atogwe with talent.
15. Miami: Cameron Jordan DL California. Moving up charts, they use him at a 5 tech DE and as a stand up rusher.
16. Jacksonville: Mark Ingram RB Alabama. Yes, they have MJD, but he’s breaking down from taking the load. This allows them to grind out yards with Ingram and use Jones-Drew in the slot more.
17. Tennessee via Arizona(projected trade with New England: Pats get Larry Fitzgerald and Cards’ 3rd, Cards get pick 17, both of New England’s 2nds): Mike Pouncey OL Florida. They need guard help pretty badly. 9 spots and picking up a high 2nd is a great deal for them. Expect a QB at 33 in this scenario.
18. Washington(from San Diego): Colin Kaepernick QB Nevada. A bit high, but he can start relatively soon.
19. New York Giants: Anthony Costanzo OT Boston College. He’s probably more natural on the left, so Diehl eventually slide over there.
20. Tampa Bay: Adrian Clayborn DE Iowa. More natural in the 3-4, but he can be a weak side DE in the 4-3.
21. Kansas City: Leonard Hankerson WR Miami. Bowe is a flanker, Hank is a burner. Perfect for need.
22. Indianapolis: Da’quan Bowers DE Clemson. Raw, but they can sit him, dump Hughes onto a 3-4 team and replace Mathis soon.
23. Minnesota(from Philadelphia): Rodney Hudson OL FSU. Hutch’s replacement in 2013.
24. New Orleans: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame. They have some young guys in there already to replace Shockey, but Rudolph makes a lot of sense—and the Saints rarely draft for need.
25. Seattle: Cam Newton QB? Auburn. The Wtf pick of the first round, but it makes some sense. They aren’t sold on Clipboard Jesus and Hasselback could tutor(or at least try to tutor) him.
26. Baltimore: Martez Wilson LB Illinois. They need to start thinking about the post Ray-Ray era when he’s on the radio/tv/podcasts ripping them 20 hours a day.
27. Atlanta: Marcus Cannon OG TCU. Fast enough for their ZBS.
28. New England: Joseph Barksdale OT LSU. Fitz fills a major need, Barksdale can play RT tomorrow. Now they need a pass rusher and their offseason is complete.
29. Chicago: Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin. Status quo ante.
30. New York Jets: Akeem Ayers LB UCLA. Bart Scott is regressing, and Pace/Thomas/etc need reinforcement on the outside.
31. Pittsburgh: Stefen Wisniewski OL PSU. He’ll move to RG.
32. Green Bay: JJ Watt DL Wisconsin. Status quo ante
