33. Houston Texans – Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St.

The Texans will have to trade back into the first to pull this one off but it’s a strong possibility if he slides into the 20’s.

34. Washington Redskins – Brad Roby, CB, Ohio St. 

35. Cleveland Browns – Marqise Lee, WR, USC

36. Oakland Raiders – Brandon Thomas, OG, Clemson

"Dee Ford"37. Atlanta Falcons – Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn

The Falcons would be sprint to the podium to turn in this card. A draft of Matthews and Ford would be a fantastic start for this squad.

38. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

39. Jacksonville Jaguars – Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois

The Jags gamble in the first as they had a shot at any of the QB’s and find one that I value as a first rounder in the second.

40. Minnesota Vikings – Kyle Van Noy, LB, BYU

41. Buffalo Bills – Cyrus Kouandijo, OT, Alabama 

42. Tennessee Titans – Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State

43. New York Giants – Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame

The Giants could go with Eric Ebron in the first but it will be tough to pass on Aaron Donald. Niklas is a big, underrated athlete that might wind up being a steal at No. 45.

44. St. Louis Rams – Lamarcus Joyner, FS, Florida St.

45. Detroit Lions – Davante Adams, WR, Fresno St.

46. Pittsburgh Steelers – Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood

47. Dallas Cowboys – Terrence Brooks, S, Florida St.

Both FSU safeties are off the board in the top 50. I have been the President of the Lamarcus Joyner fanclub but Brooks is a guy that I think could be a surprise and steal in the draft.

48. Baltimore Ravens – Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

49. New York Jets – Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska

50. Miami Dolphins – Tre Mason, RB, Auburn

51. Chicago Bears – Deone Bucannon, S, Washington St."Deone Bucannon"

If Bucannon makes it down this far the Bears should be jumping for joy. He can thump and is better in coverage than anyone is giving him credit for. He carries a first round grade for me, so this officially is a steal.

52. Arizona Cardinals – Demarcus Lawrence, OLB, Boise St.

53. Green Bay Packers – Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

54. Philadelphia Eagles – Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech

55. Cincinnati Bengals – Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina

56. San Francisco 49ers – Weston Richburg, C, Colorado St. 

The Niners look long-term (and possibly short-term) with this one. Daniel Kilgore is slated to start the season but Richburg should be able to steal that spot.

57. San Diego Chargers – Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida

58. New Orleans Saints – Joel Bitonio, OT/OG, Nevada 

59. Indianapolis Colts – Marcus Martin, C, USC

60. San Francisco 49ers – Bashaud Breeland, CB, Clemson

The ‘Niners need some help at the cornerback spot. Breeland is a long athlete that needs a little work but could pay major dividends down the road.

61. Carolina Panthers – Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU

62. New England Patriots – Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

63. Denver Broncos – Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson

Why not? The Broncos can afford to take a shot at Bryant who carries a ton of upside but some inconsistencies. If he pans out this one could a difference maker late in round two.

64. Seattle Seahawks – Allen Robinson, WR, Penn St.

    Buddy I do not believe Minnesota will double up on QB.
    As for Lions yes it can be boring but I do not find any problem with the duo.

    • bradc11

      Thanks for the catch Reggie. It’s changed. It’s a solid get for the Lions, so no need to change it if it works.

  • Flint

    I got to say I hate your two first rd. Browns picks. “Johnny Trademark” is a BIG reach, and if we are to take a corner, we need one with size.

    • bradc11

      We’ll see on Johnny…I’m not sure he makes it to the Browns.

      Don’t get lost in Verrett’s height. If you didn’t know he was 5’9″ish you wouldn’t know watching his tape. He played a slew of ‘big’ receivers and more than held his own. I’m not sure he’s not the best corner in this draft. If he were 5’11 or 6’0 we’d be talking about him as a top 10 pick.

      • Flint

        O.K., Quality is there at corner, with J.V., but Haden is avg. size and Skrine under-sized ( except his heart). We better get a big safety then, and I’d still like someone like McGill.

        • bradc11

          They definitely need to add more than one in the secondary. They probably pick up a safety in the mid-to-late rounds. McGill would be a good fit for them but he’s probably going to come off the board late on day two – maybe too rich for them with other needs to fill.

  • Phillip

    And Green Bay fans will continue to disagree. We could easily move up in the 2nd and still find Ward, there’s no way Ted Thompson reaches for Ward at 21, he could even trade down 10-15 spots, add picks and still get Ward. If Mosley, Dix, and Ebron are all gone, Ryan Shazier will likely be going 21 and than Green Bay could get aggressive and possibly look to add Ward or Bucannon in the 2nd, and who knows, Ward has a mid 2nd draft grade and even lower with a lot of people, he could easily fall in our laps at 53, but 21 is just far too early for Ward.

    • bradc11

      Call me stunned if Ward makes it out of round 1. On May 9th if he’s still on the board you can shoot me an email ([email protected]) and tell me I told you so. Shazier would be a solid pick for the Pats and if I didn’t go with Ward, he probably would have been in serious consideration.

    • Micheal Profetta

      Shazier or Mosley would make sense for the Packers in round one. Clinton-Dix is exactly what they need, but they would probably have to trade up. Don’t sleep on Ward. He has some Polamalu to his game and I doubt he’ll be available at #53. I wouldn’t be shocked if the Eagles at #22 or Chargers at #25 scooped him up. Green Bay got zero turnovers from their safeties last season, so a play-maker like Bucannon makes sense, but he’s more of a box safety. The Packers need a safety who excels in coverage. Terrence Brooks could be a 2nd round target. Call me crazy, but I have a feeling that Thompson will draft a WR much higher than most expect. The Packers have been “talking up” Jarrett Boykin…perhaps a little too much. He’s known to disappear for stretches (see playoff loss to SF) and I think that his ceiling is as a #4 WR. If Mike Evans somehow slips to #21, Thompson will grab him.

  • Duncan

    HCD would still probably be available if Buffalo were to trade down a few slots. I like the pick, but I don’t Clinton-Dix has the value to be taken at #9.

    Cyrus Kounandijo, seems to to be falling down draft boards due to his bad knees. I would still love to have him if he can prove that he will be around more than two or three years into his career, but at this point, he looks like a third round prospect to me.

    The steelers will draft offensives in the first round. That is how Colbert drafting pattern go, Defense one year, the offensive the next year. They will most likey draft Odell Beckham, Marqise Lee or Kelvin “lazy” Benjamin.
