There's a lot of hype around Manziel and Bortles, but Bridgewater is still the guy. He's the most complete and NFL ready of all the QB prospects.
St. Louis is going to try to trade away their pick, but I don't think anyway will bite. The only team I could see biting would be Atlanta for Clowney, but don't make the move and St. Louis drafts Matthews.
The Jaguars desperately need a Quarterback. They also desperately need a pass rusher, but they aren't going to take a risk on someone like Manziel or Bortles and instead go for perhaps the safest pick in the draft Clowney.
There's been a lot of talk about Manziel being the guy, but the new front office doesn't seem to be interested in Manziel, or so we're lead to believe. I think they are interested, but Bortles is on the rise and I think the new front office doesn't want to take a risk on Manziel
The raiders need a QB, but they also need someone to throw to; Watkins is the best receiver in the draft and he's a no-brainer for a team that needs a WR.
The Falcons need some O-Line help and with Matthews gone Robinson is the guy. A lot of people question his size, but he's still one of the best prospects out there.
I don't think Tampa is desperate for a Linebacker, but we know Lovie loves his defense. Barr is an athletic freak and makes sense in for the Bucs.
The Vikings need a QB, and while I'm sure they would love Bortles or Bridgewater, the chances either of them get to pick 8 don't seem likely. They could trade up to take St. Louis spot at #2 to get Bortles, but it seems that they would have to give up too much just to jump 5 spots.
The Bills need a linebacker and with Barr gone Mack makes a lot of sense. He won't have to go to far and is a solid overall pick for the Bills.
The Lions are torn between another threat at WR and CB. Cornerbacks talent is a lot harder to come by in this draft than WR talent so I think the Lions address the need of CB.
The Titans need a safety and Pryor is the guy. He's the best Safety prospect in addition to Clinton-Dix and has good coverage and is great at stopping the run. He'll be able to fill a lot of holes at once for the Titans
The Giants could give a little more protection to Eli and Lewan should be able to provide that. Eli had one of his worst years in 2013, the Giants are hoping with Lewan protecting him he can bounce back
Safety is a need for the Rams and HaHa is one of the best Safety's in the draft. He has a great career at Alabama and will be a good fit in Jeff Fisher's system
The bears defense is starting to get old and Donald is a great pass rusher. He's overshadowed by Clowney but is still very athletic
A young, fast CB in the secondary is just what the Steelers need
Jernigan was one of the key pieces in FSU's run to the National Championship, he's a big body that fills a need for the Cowboys on the D-Line
