9. Buffalo Bills – C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama

Kiko Alonso has been a steal. Adding Mosley to this front seven may be just what takes it over the top. Mosley’s ability to find the football and make a boatload of plays should make him an immediate hit in the league.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

Emmanuel Sanders may or may not be back. Either way, I think the Steelers could look to give Big Ben a big time weapon in the form of a WR or TE early in this draft. Mike Evans has been fantastic this season for the Aggies and should be a top 15 prospect when it’s all said and done. He’s a perfect complement to Antonio Brown on the outside and should draw coverage his way early.

11. New York Jets – Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

This pick may draw more than a few negative comments but I’m sold on Adams as a top 20 pick in this draft, if he comes out. The Jets are dead broke at the WR position. Santonio Holmes is on his way out and Stephen Hill hasn’t developed into the next great Georgia Tech NFL receiver. Adams has the skill set to push Adams and Watkins with a great pre-draft showing.

12. Tennessee Titans – Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

The Titans need to find a better and more consistent pass rush. Ealy could be the best, least talked about prospect that is draft eligible. If Ealy enters the draft, you will be hearing a lot about him in the near future. Ealy gives the Titans an instant and much needed upgrade on this defense.

13. San Diego Chargers – Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State

D.J. Fluker has been better than I thought he would be. That said, the Chargers need more help on this offensive line. Erving is continuing to grow as the week’s pass and he’s passed Taylor Lewan and Cyrus Kouandijo in my book.

14. New York Giants – Cyrus Kouandijo, OT, Alabama

The Giants OL has been miserable at times this season. Will Beatty has been one of the worst starting LT’s in the league – and it’s not even close. Kouandijo is a talented OT with loads of upside. He’s been a bit up and down this year but has the makings of a future stud LT in the NFL.

15. St. Louis Rams – Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

Jeff Fisher rolls the dice on Manziel. Someone will, so why not the Rams with two first round picks. I know that he’s unorthodox on and off the field but his ability to make plays will make him the ideal high risk, high reward guy. Fisher hasn’t shied away from taking on the troubled star in the past and they could use a guy to groom as Bradford’s replacement.

16. Green Bay Packers – Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

Jermichael Finley’s day in Green Bay could be numbered. He was having a solid season before suffering a devastating head/neck injury against Cleveland. I can’t see the Packers rolling the dice on him in 2014, so they look to the draft for a weapon for Rodgers. Amaro is a special TE prospect that can be used in all sorts of fashions for this offense.

    Jordan Matthews is an under rated player. Could be a lot like Terrence Williams from last draft. Though I think he might drop to Day 2. Those TE’s would be enticing as well as Trent Murphy, Ryan Shazier, Ra’Shead Hageman, and Justin Gilbert

  • Nice Marmot

    I’m all about Bortles and my Brownies. So many mocks don’t even mention him . . .

    • bradc11

      I’m with you. It would be ideal if Hoyer recovers from ACL and they can slowly bring Bortles along. A draft of Watkins and Bortles would be a great start to this draft for the Browns

  • HardcoreBillsfan37

    I love the CJ Mosley pick for Buffalo! Him lining up with Kiko will really help out the run game and will add another LB capable of pass coverage. Great mock!

    • bradc11

      Mosley and Kiko are a scary LB tandem for a lot of years.

  • Bex_R1986

    Two points on this, one positive, one negative.

    Delighted to see Bortles included here. He has an exceptional skill set, complimented by a quick mind, as under rated as they come. Sitting at No. 22 on my draft board currently, ahead of Brett Hundley actually. Great player.

    I am however, absolutely baffled by why everyone seems to love Justin Gilbert of Oklahoma State. Seriously, it astounds me. He is horrible in man coverage, bites on the simplest of play fakes, gets burned by any double move, I could go on! He’s borderline 4th to 5th round to me and only on the basis of his natural athleticism and return ability. Other than that he is hopeless in coverage. I’d be delighted to be given an explanation as to why he deserves even a day 2 pick let anole 1st round consideration. I know this comes across harsh, but I really don;t see why he is considered highly. Thanks!

      I was a big Gilbert detractor based off last years tape but he’s been very good this year. Thought he was very good as a sophomore and had very bad junior tape. He’s redeemed himself this year. He does gamble a bit too much but his athleticism makes up for a lot of those mistakes. While I don’t see a round one grade warranted I think he’s a solid second rounder. This corner class doesn’t have a headliner so he will be primed for being over drafted.

      Bortles could shoot up boards with his potential and guys like Mariota going back to school. Love his skill set and think his potential could have him picked in top 15 when it’s all said and done.

      • Bex_R1986

        Well I appreciate the explanation and the thought process, such as your thinking that this is a weak CB class. However, I think Verret is exceptional, (small he may be) but he is outstanding in covering a teams leading player. His size is certainly an issue, but I’d still take him long before some others. Moving on to others, Darqueze Dennard has legit shut down corner potnetial. His ceiling is massive. He’ll creep into the 1st by the time this process is done. I personally am a big fan of Kyle Fuller. Not in the 1st but a high 2nd round guy, due to some speed concerns, but the guy can play. I’d argue that this is actually an under-rated CB group that will be remembered more highly than it is now

        • bradc11

          Not a weak class at corner just no headliner. I like Verrett’s game but his size is going to be an issue. Dennard may wind up being my top corner in this draft but I’m not sure that I consider him a headliner. I think he has solid mid-1 value. Verrett’s an early day two guy for me. I haven’t seen a ton on Olomu, so I’ll hold off on him. After those guys, I like a whole slew of guys in the 2-3 range. I like the depth of the class especially those guys lumped in 2 and 3.

  • Bex_R1986

    Allow me to offer a comparison for Justin Gilbert. He is the CB version of Taylor Mays. You get lost in his athleticism and fail to realise that he has no initiative, anticipation or instincts to play his position.

  • Skinsfan

    What would Washington use the pick for? A LT that they already spent a top 5 pick on? How about a QB that they already spent a top 3 pick on? A 4-3 DE when they run a 3-4? How about a pass rushing OLB? Oh wait, they already 2 that they spent a 13th and 16th pick overall on. Nobody drafts a RT #2 overall and there isn’t a WR or CB worthy of that spot, so the Redskins would be screwed if they actually had that pick. They get to save themselves some money. THANK YOU ST LOUIS!!!!
