The Texans new coach, Bill O'Brien, knows they need a QB, but could opt for best prospect at this point. They can get their QB later.
The Rams have a QB who is statistically one of the best in the league when not pressured. Problem is, he's pressured a lot. They need to protect him. Matthews is the most polished prospect in the draft and surprises by being taken ahead of Robinson.
Gus Bradley is a defense-first type of guy. Mack is an elite prospect at the OLB position--he can do everything.
The Browns are in desperate need of a QB--they have the OL and receiving weapons to go with one. Manziel's dual threat ability is too good to pass up, no matter the cost.
The Raiders have a lot of holes outside of quarterback, and will look to fill one here with Watkins. Watkins is a difference maker regardless of the quarterback, and Schaub should be more than enough to utilize him.
Similar problem to the Rams: They need to protect their quarterback better. Robinson is arguably the best
They got Michael Johnson, but they need more. Lovie loves to apply pressure to quarterbacks. Barr is a nice hybrid DE/OLB that could be used to add that necessary pressure.
Bridgewater's stock has fallen. He has fallen in the draft. That doesn't make him any less of a great pick, though.
Lewan is a rising prospect, and a very good OT--arguably the best in the draft minus his off the field issues. Similar to the Vikings last year, they need to protect their first round QB from injury and give him time to develop.
The Lions need a #2 next to Megatron. Evans might be the #2 prospect, but he's a deep threat--they need a speedster. An offensive weapon. Beckham can be that weapon.
Shazier is a rising prospect. The Titans desperately need OLB. They'll reach for Shazier here.
TRADE!! The 49ers trade their #30, #56, #94, and #129 picks for the Giants #12 pick.
Looking to move ahead of all the other WR-hungry teams (including division rival Rams), SF moves up to take the second best available receiver. They need more solid targets for Kaepernick--especially a big bodied deep threat like Evans to couple with Crabtree.
The Rams desperately need help at Safety. Clinton-Dix is a plug-and-play Safety who will make an impact day one.
The Bears also desperately need help at Safety. Even if they can't get Clinton-Dix, their Safeties are so bad they'll take Pryor here.
They need help at CB--fortunately none have been taken so far, so they get their pick. Dennard is a physical corner who fits with LeBeau's defense.
Hageman is physical and has HUGE potential. He literally has the perfect body for a DT. He'll go earlier than expected here.
