Round 1

1 Houston Jadeveon Clowney* DE South Carolina 6' 5" 266
DraftSite's comments:Not a surprise here. Expect the Texans to overload Clowney and Watt and have them on the same side in most situations.
2 LA Rams Trade Icon Greg Robinson** OT Auburn 6' 5" 332
DraftSite's comments:Jeff Fischer has NEVER taken a lineman in the 1st round but this was another obvious pick.
3 Jacksonville Blake Bortles* QB UCF 6' 5" 232
DraftSite's comments:And the flood gates are about to open...Mack is the best player available but Jacksonville got the best QB available.
4 Buffalo Trade Icon Sammy Watkins* WR Clemson 6' 1" 211
DraftSite's comments:We had Watkins 4th...just the wrong team obviously....Buffalo needs targets and EJ Manual must be happy.
5 Oakland Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo 6' 3" 251
DraftSite's comments:Great pick for the Raiders....we don't say that often.
6 Atlanta Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M 6' 5" 308
DraftSite's comments:Great pick for the Falcons...what they needed and they didn't have to move to do it.
7 Tampa Bay Mike Evans** WR Texas A&M 6' 5" 225
DraftSite's comments:Biggest wide receiver combo in the NFL Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans
8 Cleveland Trade Icon Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State 6' 0" 202
DraftSite's comments:Cleveland has talked about wanting a CB to pair with Joe Haden but this was a bit of a surprise.
9 Minnesota Trade Icon Anthony Barr OLB UCLA 6' 5" 255
DraftSite's comments:Could be the steal of this draft when we look back in a few years...we were very high on him.
10 Detroit Eric Ebron* TE UNC 6' 4" 250
DraftSite's comments:A surprise here although Detroit loves weapons to throw the ball to...catching it is the problem.
11 Tennessee Taylor Lewan OT Michigan 6' 7" 309
DraftSite's comments:We thought this would be Darqueze Dennard but Lewan is a nice safe pick.
12 NY Giants Odell Beckham, Jr.* WR LSU 5' 11" 198
DraftSite's comments:After losing Hakeem Nicks another wideout was needed but we thought the defensive line and Aaron Donald would be the pick...he can't last much longer.
13 LA Rams Aaron Donald DT Pitt 6' 1" 285
DraftSite's comments:Quinn and Long on end with Brockers and Doanld at tackle...this line is scary.
14 Chicago Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech 6' 0" 190
DraftSite's comments:Chicago doesn't go with the typical pick and Fuller has been flying up the boards.
15 Pittsburgh Ryan Shazier* OLB Ohio State 6' 2" 230
DraftSite's comments:Pittsburgh should have tried to trade back. Thought they would have went secondary.
16 Dallas Zack Martin OT Notre Dame 6' 4" 308
DraftSite's comments:Should be a guard instead of a tackle. Good pick if he gets to play the inside.
17 Baltimore C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama 6' 2" 234
DraftSite's comments:Ray Lewis replacement is now in Baltimore.
18 NY Jets Calvin Pryor* S Louisville 5' 11" 207
DraftSite's comments:Nice pick...Rex Ryan wins as he wanted defensive back help.
19 Miami Ja'Wuan James OT Tennessee 6' 6" 311
DraftSite's comments:Wow......first pick with a prospect we had in round 2 going a round early.
20 New Orleans Trade Icon Brandin Cooks* WR Oregon State 5' 10" 186
DraftSite's comments:Been awhile since the Saints took offense with their first pick but some turnover on offense has happened the last couple of seasons.
21 Green Bay Ha Ha Clinton-Dix* S Alabama 6' 1" 208
DraftSite's comments:we had Jimmie Ward here since we thought Ha Ha would be gone.
22 Cleveland Trade Icon Johnny Manziel** QB Texas A&M 6' 0" 207
DraftSite's comments:Good for both teams involved...Cleveland had the ammo to move up and Philadelphia gets a 3rd rounder.
23 Kansas City Dee Ford DE Auburn 6' 2" 252
DraftSite's comments:Square peg round hole...don't like Ford in Kansas City.
24 Cincinnati Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State 5' 11" 199
DraftSite's comments:Great pick here...both starting corners last year over 30 years old.
25 San Diego Jason Verrett CB TCU 5' 9" 189
DraftSite's comments:Good pick for San Diego they needed a corner and now they can go after a defensive tackle.
26 Philadelphia Trade Icon Marcus Smith DE Louisville 6' 3" 251
DraftSite's comments:Like the position the Eagles drafted but not the player, you could have taken him later....much later.
27 Arizona Trade Icon Deone Bucannon S Washington State 6' 1" 211
DraftSite's comments:This is a good pick...just surprised it was not Jimmie Ward.
28 Carolina Kelvin Benjamin** WR Florida State 6' 5" 240
DraftSite's comments:Definite position of need but I feel Benjamin is more of a tight end.
29 New England Dominique Easley DT Florida 6' 2" 288
DraftSite's comments:Surprised this was the Patriots first round pick.
30 San Francisco Jimmie Ward S Northern Illinois 5' 11" 193
DraftSite's comments:Jimmie Ward and Eric Reid...Niners set for years at safety
31 Denver Bradley Roby* CB Ohio State 5' 11" 190
DraftSite's comments:Great value at #31.
32 Minnesota Trade Icon Teddy Bridgewater* QB Louisville 6' 2" 214
DraftSite's comments:Seattle plays it to perfection and Minnesota gets their QB for Norv Turner to work with.
