Zach Berman's mock NFL draft
Jadeveon Clowney DE, South Carolina
Even if it's not Houston making this pick, Clowney is the most talented player in the draft and plays a premium position.
2. St. Louis Rams
This could be a potential trade spot for Atlanta, Buffalo, or Detroit. If St. Louis keeps the pick, it helps protect Sam Bradford.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Khalil Mack OLB, Buffalo
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley will find creative ways to use Mack. Sammy Watkins is not a bad consolation prize if Mack is off the board.
4. Cleveland Browns
Sammy Watkins WR, Clemson
The Browns bypass Johnny Manziel to take Watkins, forming one of the NFL's best wide-receiver duos with Josh Gordon.
5. Oakland Raiders
Mike Evans WR, Texas A&M
The Raiders could be compelled to draft an offensive lineman, but Evans' potential helps a team devoid of playmakers.
6. Atlanta Falcons
Jake Matthews OL, Texas A&M
The Falcons are candidates to trade up, but they still land a safe, starting tackle by staying at No. 6. Penn Charter's Matt Ryan will be happy.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Johnny Manziel QB, Texas A&M
With Evans off the board, the Bucs go with his college quarterback. Josh McCown will help groom the former Heisman Trophy winner.
8. Minnesota Vikings
Aaron Donald DT, Pittsburgh
New coach Mike Zimmer knows defense. Donald can thrive under the coach who helped develop Geno Atkins.
9. Buffalo Bills
Taylor Lewan T, Michigan
The Bills need to protect EJ Manuel, and Lewan is a Day 1 starter. Coach Doug Marrone, a former offensive lineman, will be pleased with this pick.
10. Detroit Lions
Justin Gilbert CB, Oklahoma State
If the Lions cannot trade for Watkins, they might trade down and address a cornerback later in the round. This is the best spot to get Gilbert, who will help their secondary.
11. Tennessee Titans
Kyle Fuller CB, Virginia Tech
The Titans will think hard about an edge rusher, but Fuller still fills a need and is arguably the top cornerback in the draft.
12. New York Giants
Zack Martin OL, Notre Dame
The Giants take an offensive linemen in the first round for the second straight season. Tom Coughlin will value Martin's versatility.
13. New York Jets (trade with St. Louis)
Odell Beckham WR, LSU
The Rams auction their pick, and the Jets' surplus of picks helps them land another receiver and a potent returner.
14. Chicago Bears
Calvin Pryor S, Louisville
The Bears cannot get the defensive tackle they want here, so they address another need with the hard-hitting Pryor.
15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Darqueze Dennard CB, Michigan State
The Steelers like tough, physical players. Dennard fits that description.
16. Dallas Cowboys
Anthony Barr LB/DE, UCLA
The Cowboys need to improve their pass rush, and Barr has the potential to be a difference maker - even in a 4-3.
17. Baltimore Ravens
Eric Ebron TE, North Carolina
The Ravens continue adding playmakers to their offense. Fans in Audubon will be happy to know Joe Flacco gets another target.
18. St. Louis Rams (trade with Jets)
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix S, Alabama
The Rams move back and still are able to land a safety that can start on Day 1. If Clinton-Dix gets past this spot, the Eagles could be lucky.
19. Miami Dolphins
Morgan Moses OL, Virginia
If the Dolphins cannot move up to acquire Zack Martin, they'll take their chances with the promising Virginia lineman.
20. Arizona Cardinals
CJ Mosley LB, Alabama
The Cardinals don't have many pressing needs, and they can look at Derek Carr here. Mosley has too much value, though, and he helps replace Karlos Dansby.
21. Green Bay Packers
Stephon Tuitt DL, Notre Dame
The Packers could go with an inside linebacker at this spot, but they instead go with a five-technique defensive lineman who has experience in the 3-4.
Marqise Lee WR, USC
The Eagles will focus on Lee's first two seasons when he was among the best receivers in college football and enjoy the value of a player who can score whenever he touches the ball.
23. Minnesota Vikings (trade with Chiefs)
Blake Bortles QB, UCF
Andy Reid does not have a second-round pick, so he finds a willing trade partner in Minnesota, which gets a quarterback without using a top-10 pick.
24. Cincinnati Bengals
Bradley Roby CB, Ohio State
The Bengals stick with value. It helps when that value fills a need.
25. San Diego Chargers
Louis Nix DL, Notre Dame
The Chargers might be tempted to go with a cornerback, although they can find one later. Nix is a hard-to-find anchor in a middle of the defensive line.
26. Cleveland Browns
Derek Carr QB, Fresno State
The Browns use their extra first-round pick on a quarterback for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to develop.
27. New Orleans Saints
Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State
The Saints might look for defense at this spot, but Cooks in Sean Payton's offense is too intriguing.
28. Carolina Panthers
Cyrus Kouandjio OL, Alabama
The Panthers need a wide receiver, although that will be easier to find in the second round than a potential starting tackle.
29. Jacksonville Jaguars (trade with Patriots)
Teddy Bridgewater QB, Louisville
The Jaguars could wait until the second round, but this allows them to jump the Texans and get a potential building block at quarterback.
30. San Francisco 49ers
Cody Latimer WR, Indiana
The 49ers have enough resources to move up for a top receiver or cornerback. If they stay at No. 30, the fast-rising Latimer makes sense.
31. Denver Broncos
Ryan Shazier LB, Ohio State
Broncos coach John Fox will enjoy the speedy Shazier, who could be off the board before Denver gets a chance.
32. Seattle Seahawks
Joel Bitonio T, Nevada
The Seahawks can trade back into Day 2 to save money. If they stay still, a versatile offensive lineman makes sense.
