1. Kansas City Geno Smith – QB – West Virginia

Smith is far and away the best quarterback in this draft class. He might be the only one to develop into an above-average starter in the NFL.

2. Jacksonville – Jarvis Jones – OLB – Georgia

Jones is this draft’s most complete pass rusher. He’ll give the Jaguars someone who can consistently generate pressure on the quarterback. This team desperately needs someone to fill that role.

3. Oakland – Star Lotulelei – DT – Utah

Lotulelei is a nice replacement for the aging and expensive Richard Seymour or Tommy Kelly.

4. Philadelphia – Luke Joeckel – OT – Texas A&M

Jason Peters is too injury-prone to have a guaranteed spot on the roster. Joeckel is someone capable of stepping in and immediately playing at a high level.

5. Detroit – Dee Milliner – CB – Alabama

Detroit has very limited talent at the cornerback position. This is why they should make a move to bring in the draft’s most talented cover man.

6. Cleveland – Damontre Moore – DE – Texas A&M

Ray Horton has stated he plans on keeping some 4-3 principles, but expect to see some of his 3-4 alignment. Moore is versatile enough to excel in either system.

7. Arizona – Eric Fisher – OT – Central Michigan

Fisher’s excellent showing at the Senior Bowl really helped his stock. He’d be the answer to the Cardinals’ issues at left tackle.

8. Buffalo – Dion Jordan – DE/OLB – Oregon

Mike Pettine will absolutely run some type of a 3-4 attack in Buffalo. Jordan will fit nicely as an outside linebacker capable of rushing the passer and playing some coverage.

9. New York Jets – Barkevious Mingo – DE/OLB – LSU

Adding a top-notch pass rusher to this defense would again make this one of the better units in the league.

10. Tennessee – Bjoern Werner – DE – Florida State

Werner will give the Titans a cheaper and likely more effective option from Kamerion Wimbley.

11. San Diego – Chance Warmack – OG – Alabama

Warmack is a dominant player capable of consistently winning the battle up front. His addition will go a long way towards improving the Chargers’ offensive line.

12. Miami – Cordarrelle Patterson – WR – Tennessee

The Dolphins must surround Ryan Tannehill with players capable of making big plays. There isn’t a wide receiver in this draft capable of making more big plays than Patterson.

13. Tampa Bay – Johnthan Banks – CB – Mississippi State

Banks’ toughness and coverage ability will fill a major need for the Buccaneers.

14. Carolina – Sylvester Williams – DT – North Carolina

The Panthers need a force in the middle of their defense capable of penetrating the pocket and occupying blockers. Williams is that versatile player who’s able to fit that need.

15. New Orleans – Johnathan Hankins – DT – Ohio State

With the Saints making the move to a 3-4 system, they need a space-eater like Johnathan Hankins to plug the middle. He’s the ideal candidate to fill the team’s need for a nose tackle.

16. St. Louis – Lane Johnson – OT – Oklahoma

Johnson still needs time to fully develop, but his ability to protect the passer will make him a hot name come draft day. The Rams could use an upgrade at three spots along the offensive line.

Jon Dove has followed and loved the draft since he was a little dude. His life has been filled with many sleepless nights wondering just how the next draft would shake out. He took that obsession and started working with Dan Kadar at Mocking the Draft. Jon subsequently headed NFL Mocks, where he honed his skills in the areas of SEO, site organization and running a team of writers. Later, Bleacher Report approached him to join their NFL coverage team.
