Mock Drafts on the net.
1 Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina
  We gotta expect the best player to go 1st, and this also very much fits the Bill O'Brien
  profile; Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel will be given the polished gem and
  O'Brien will polish a Garoppolo, Carr, or Mettenberger into his offensive gem.
2 St. Louis Rams Greg Robinson OT Auburn
3 Jacksonville Jaguars Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M
4 Cleveland Browns Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
  Here's believing that the Browns just aren't "totally in-love" with the QB's commonly
  thought of as the "top 3," and will go for that at #26 or with a trade-up later…
  Watkins will look like a smart pick once they go with Carr or Garoppolo, ...or
  Mettenberger later on (watch out for the Mettenberger idea -- it's a hunch)
5 Minnesota Vikings (Oak) Blake Bortles QB Central Florida
  Vikes trade 3rd/5th rd. picks to move up for their #1 QB; Bortles will be surrounded
  by great coaching, a running game, and weapons for a smooth development.
6 Atlanta Falcons Khalil Mack DE/OLB Buffalo
7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
8 Oakland Raiders (Minn) Derek Carr QB Fresno State
  A formula seems to be setting up that involves a totally smitten Raider front office in 
  regard to Carr; they slip into a good slot for getting him before other teams can strike.
  …And since when do the Raiders care about popular group-think anyhow?
9 Buffalo Bills Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
10 Detroit Lions Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State
11 Tennessee Titans Anthony Barr DE/OLB UCLA
12 New York Giants Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
13 St. Louis Rams Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix FS Alabama
14 Chicago Bears Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh
15 Pittsburgh Steelers Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
  Though there's mouth-watering intensity to get that big wide receiver, the projection
  allows Pittsburgh to get the their top-rated CB (need #2), and then monitor the falling
  WR talent in round 2; sliding back for WR Benjamin/Beckham will also be considered.
16 Dallas Cowboys Timmy Jernigan DT Florida State
17 Baltimore Ravens Calvin Pryor FS Louisville
18 New York Jets Eric Ebron TE North Carolina
  Ebron is of high value at this slot in the draft; although WR could technically be the
  greater overall need, where the Jets crave some play-making…Add this selection to
  the lengthy list of teams that are taking needs now and waiting for WR on day two.
19 Miami Dolphins Zach Martin OT/OG Notre Dame
20 Arizona Cardinals Ra'Shede Hageman DT Minnesota
21 Green Bay Packers C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama
  Here's where the first true "amazing value" comes out and smacks us in the face… and
  why the Packers are so good and so consistent; luck may have played a part in Mosley
  falling right into their lap, but "need" meets "value" perfectly w/ this selection.
22 Philadelphia Eagles Marqise Lee WR USC
23 Kansas City Chiefs Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State
24 Cincinnati Bengals Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech
25 San Diego Chargers Louis Nix NT Notre Dame
26 Cleveland Browns Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
  Now, look, … The other 31 teams aren't going to just allow the Browns to sit here and
  grab their favorite QB; but if Teddy does slip out of the top 10, they have the assets
  to trade up 5-10 spots and nab him. Watkins + Bridgewater on day 1? ...Wow!
27 New Orleans Saints Dee Ford DE Auburn
28 Carolina Panthers Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State
29 New England Patriots Xavier Su'a-Filo OG UCLA
  This just seems like a match made in heaven - player fits team perfectly and is a good,
  safe selection - a very underrated prospect that quietly will slip into the first round. 
  Yes, this is a wildcard/unorthodox projection, but something resonantes w/ the match.
  Even if Su'a-Filo doesn't go here, I would expect him to be selected in this first round.
30 San Francisco 49ers Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU
31 Denver Broncos Ryan Shazier LB Ohio State
32 Seattle Seahawks Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame
