[su_box title=”1. Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(2-14)
(2-14)

Jameis is not the no. 1 overall best player in this draft class, but Tampa’s offense is almost complete. They just need a franchise quarterback. Hopefully Jameis matures.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”2. Leonard Williams, DT, Southern California” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(2-14)
(2-14)

Name five players on the Titans…Most can not. They need talent EVERYWHERE. Williams is an instant upgrade and will anchor that defensive line for years to come.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”3. Dante Fowler Jr., OLB, Florida” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(3-13)
(3-13)

Jacksonville’s offense is ready to go, but their defense is not. Finishing no. 26 in overall defense last year, the Jags need the most pro-ready option available. Fowler will immediately improve their pass rush and run defense.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”4. Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(3-13)
(3-13)

Last year, Oakland made the smart and safe pick with Khalil Mack (LB) and they will do the same this year. The offense has almost no talent. Cooper’s talents are not mini, look for him to be the Watkins of this year’s draft.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”5. Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(4-12)
(4-12)

With no relation to Michael or Pam, Vic Beasley will find himself a Redskin on draft day. With the loss of oft-injured Brian Orakpo, the Skins need a new, exciting young OLB. Here is to hoping Vic stays healthy.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”6. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(4-12)
(4-12)

This team is itching for a new quarterback. The fan base may set the stadium on fire if they pass Mariota. Yeah, there is talk of the Eagles trading into this spot, but would the Jets be dumb enough to want Sam Bradford or Mariota?[/su_box]

[su_box title=”7. Danny Shelton, DT, Washington” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(5-11)
(5-11)

After a few weeks, this defense was unBEARable to watch. Teams ran rampant on the Bears’ injured and untalented defense. Shelton immediately bolsters a porous defensive line.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”8. Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(6-10)
(6-10)

Atlanta had the worst defense in all of the NFL last year. Gregory is the second step in not letting teams have their way with Atlanta next year. Step one was hiring Dan Quinn as head coach.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”9. Shane Ray, DE, Missouri” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(6-10)
(6-10)

Jason Pierre-Paul needs a partner in crime to rush the quarterback. The Giants will select Ray with hopes of him shining a Ray of sun on New York’s defense.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”10. Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(6-10)
(6-10)

Although I do not think he is worthy of a top ten pick, the Rams need secondary help and Waynes is the best on the board.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”11. Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-9)
(7-9)

Teddy Bridgewater got pummeled last year in numerous games. Brandon will let people know there is a new Scherff in town and ain’t nobody gonna touch his QB.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”12. Kevin White, WR, West Virginia” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-9)
(7-9)

Adding White to Dwayne Bowe and Brian Hartline gives Cleveland a nice set of receivers for Johnny Football to throw to.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”13. DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-9)
(7-9)

The Saints pretty much got rid of their whole offense from last year, aside from Drew Brees. Parker will make the Saints’ offense a slight walk through the Parker with his elite size and speed.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”14. Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(8-8)
(8-8)

Miami has hit the reset button on their wide receiving core. Adding Kenny Stills was a start, drafting Strong would make for a mighty one-two tandem in South Beach.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”15. Alvin Dupree, DE, Kentucky” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(8-8)
(8-8)

With the retirements of Patrick Willis and Chris Borland, San Fran needs someone new to get after guys. Dupree was the SEC’s active sack leader last season and will be highly sought after by the 49ers.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”16. La’el Collins, OT, Louisiana State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(9-7)
(9-7)

Houston will not be able to pass up on this beast from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Collins is 6-foot-4, 305 pounds of pure SEC grit.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”17. Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(9-7)
(9-7)

With Ryan Mathews departing for the Eagles, San Diego is left with a hole to fill at running back. Gurley was a menace in college and will put a jolt into the Chargers’ offense.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”18. Malcom Brown, DT, Texas” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(9-7)
(9-7)

The Chiefs ranked no. 28 in rushing defense last year. They could really use a guy like Brown, especially now that Gurley is in their division.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”19. Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-9)
(7-9)

For Peat sake, how many years in a row is this team going to have multiple first round picks? Cleveland has the receivers, now they just need to give Manziel time in the pocket to throw.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”20. Landon Collins, SS, Alabama” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(10-6)
(10-6)

Do we know what Chip Kelly has up his sleeve next? No. But, we do know that the Eagles had a secondary that did anything but fly. Collins will instantly improve the secondary and alert the defense if the play is by Landon or by sea (run or pass).[/su_box]

[su_box title=”21. Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Missouri/Oklahoma” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(10-5-1)
(10-5-1)

No doubt, dude has got some issues. If Cincinnati can get the most out of this guy, a duo of him and A.J. Green will bend almost every secondary like Beckham.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”22. Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(11-5)
(11-5)

Pittsburgh has a new defensive coordinator and his first matter of business will be to fix this Swiss cheese secondary.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”23. Arik Armstead, DT, Oregon” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(11-5)
(11-5)

People looked at Suh and said “Wow, he’s a beast.” There is no possible way you could not look at 6-foot-7, 292 pound Armstead and say the same thing.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”24. Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(11-5)
(11-5)

Losing Darnell Dockett was the biggest hit this team took during the offseason. Goldman should fill his spot just dandy and help this team return to their winning ways.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”25. Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-8-1)
(7-8-1)

Cam Newton needs to stay healthy in order for this team to win. Flowers has the potential to bloom into a franchise tackle and help keep Cam as good as Newton.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”26. Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(10-6)
(10-6)

He will join the ranks of Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Erisbel Arruebarrena or the LA Dodgers as having one of the hardest names in sports to pronounce. He also played the 3-4 in college and the Ravens need a pass rusher.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”27. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(12-4)
(12-4)

Darren McFadden is a serviceable backup, but not an every down back. Gordon has the quickness and agility somewhere between Flash Gordon and Jeff Gordon. Don’t believe me? Just watch highlights.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”28. Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(12-4)
(12-4)

Denver just lost their top two tight ends to free agency. Williams, say hello to Peyton, Peyton say hello to Williams.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”29. Shaq Thompson, OLB, Washington” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(11-5)
(11-5)

With thoughts of Jonas Gray and LeGarrette Blount running through the Colts’ minds, Indy will bring a new Shaq attack to help make sure those embarrassments do not happen again.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”30. Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(12-4)
(12-4)

Kendricks will be A.J. Hawk’s instant replacement. Green Bay will not even notice he is gone.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”31. Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(7-9)
(7-9)

Ranking no. 29 in run defense last season, the Saints need a guy like Philips to help stop the run. It will take more than just a Phillips to fix this defense; this team will have to pull out the whole toolbox.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”32. Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State” box_color=”#e54e53″ radius=”0″]

(12-4)
(12-4)

Losing Ridley and Vereen to free agency leaves this team with a big need at running back. Ajayi will not skip a beat in this stingy Patriots offense.[/su_box]
