1/CHIEFS: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

Andy Reid always says it starts up front.

 

2/JAGUARS: Dion Jordan, DE/LB, Oregon

Jordan would be the perfect ``Predator’’ for Gus Bradley’s defense.

 

3/RAIDERS: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

Floyd is the best DT in the draft.

 

4/EAGLES: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

Athletic tackle who would be nice fit for Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense.

 

5/LIONS: Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU

He’s very raw, but his athleticism is off the charts.

 

6/BROWNS: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

Browns add draft’s best corner to shore up secondary.

 

7/CARDINALS: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

Johnson will be third OT to go in top 10.

 

8/BILLS: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia.

Probably a reach this high, but Bills will be willing to roll the dice on him.

 

9/JETS: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

Could play nose or the 5-technique in the Jets’ 3-4.

 

10/TITANS: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama

Warmack is a road-grader who will make Titans better up front immediately.

 

11/CHARGERS: Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina

Chargers gave up 49 sacks and finished 27th in rushing.

 

12/DOLPHINS: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama

The run on o-linemen continues as Dolphins grab Jake Long’s replacement.

 

13/BUCS: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee

Boom-or-bust player, but too talented for Bucs to pass up at 13.

 

14/PANTHERS: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

Richardson gives Sean McDermott an athletic playmaker in the middle of his line.

 

15/SAINTS: Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU

With Saints switching to a 3-4, they need a difference-making edge-rusher.

 

16/RAMS: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia

This kid could add five points to Sam Bradford’s completion percentage.

 

17/STEELERS: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

Ran a disappointing 4.9 forty and has spinal stenosis, but he makes plays.

 

18/COWBOYS: Manelik Watson, OT, Fla. St.

After the investment Cowboys just made in Tony Romo, they need to keep him safe.

 

19/GIANTS: Bjoern Werner, DE, Fla. St.

Giants GM Jerry Reese always says you can never have enough pass-rushers.

 

20/BEARS: Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame

After cutting the chord with Brian Urlacher, Bears need a playmaking MLB.

 

21/BENGALS: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

Vaccaro is the draft’s top-rated safety.

 

22/RAMS: D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston

With Janoris Jenkins on one side and Hayden on the other, it will be tough to throw outside on the Rams.

 

23/VIKINGS: Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia

Ogletree has some on- and off-the-field concerns, but would be good value at 23 for team that needs a MLB.

 

24/COLTS: Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse

His short arms are a concern to teams, but can play inside or outside.

 

25/VIKINGS: De’Andre Hopkins, WR, Clemson

Had 13 catches for 191 yards and 2 TDs v. LSU in bowl game.

 

26/PACKERS: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

Packers’ leading rusher had 464 yards last season.

 

27/TEXANS: Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Miss

Would make a very nice replacement for Connor Barwin.

 

28/BRONCOS: Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU

LSU linebackers haven’t had a great NFL track record.

 

29/PATRIOTS: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State

6-2 corners with sub-4.4 speed don’t grow on trees.

 

30/FALCONS: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame

Eifert would be the ideal TE heir apparent to Tony Gonzalez.

 

31/49ers: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA

Has versatility to play the 5-technique and move inside as pass-rusher in sub-packages.

 

32/RAVENS: Matt Elam, S, Florida

Ravens released Bernard Pollard and lost Ed Reed. Elam would seem to make perfect sense.
