if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State
It was surprising to see the Jaguars ignore the interior of their offensive line in the 2013 NFL Draft. Center Brad Meester, who just turned 36, isn't nearly the player he once was.
Oakland Raiders: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
The Raiders' current starting wideouts are Denarius Moore and Rod Streater. Neither is a No. 1 receiver, so Oakland needs to find one for its new quarterback.
Cleveland Browns: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
Greg Little appeared to have fixed his issues with drops toward the end of last season, but his problems resurfaced in the opener against Miami. The Browns have to find a new No. 2 wideout for their new quarterback.
Pick change; previously Johnny Manziel, QB
New York Jets: Josh Huff, WR, Oregon
Santonio Holmes won't be on the team much longer, so even if Stephen Hill develops, the Jets will need another starting receiver.
Pick change; previously Jordan Matthews, WR
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
Josh Freeman's time as a starting quarterback is quickly coming to an end. The Buccaneers will give Mike Glennon a shot this season, but if he fails, they'll need to look elsewhere for a potential franchise signal-caller.
Pick change; previously Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT
San Diego Chargers: De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
The Chargers signed Danny Woodhead to be their third-down back, but I'm not sure he'll work outside of New England's system. Philip Rivers needs a true replacement for Darren Sproles. De'Anthony Thomas would definitely work.
Buffalo Bills: Craig Loston, S, LSU
It seems as though a divorce is coming between Jairus Byrd and the Bills. If Byrd walks next offseason, Buffalo will obviously need help at safety.
Pick change; previously Justin Gilbert, CB
Minnesota Vikings: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
The Vikings didn't find a young quarterback this offseason because they didn't want to hurt Christian Ponder's confidence. However, if Ponder stinks again - he was awful in the opener - Minnesota may look into drafting a young signal-caller.
Pick change; previously A.J. McCarron, QB
Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State
As mentioned, the Steelers have major issues on the offensive line. They couldn't block the Titans at all in the opener.
Pick change; previously Christian Jones, ILB
Tennessee Titans: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
Jurrell Casey is going to have a monstrous year as Tennessee's interior pass-rusher, but the team needs some players who can get to the quarterback from the outside.
Pick change; previously David Fales, QB
Arizona Cardinals: Stephen Morris, QB, Miami
If the Cardinals are drafting 11th overall, it means that the Carson Palmer experiment didn't go as well as planned. In that case, they'd consider a quarterback in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Stephen Morris would fit perfectly in Arizona's offense.
Indianapolis Colts: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT, Notre Dame
I mocked Datone Jones to the Colts for a while because they need a pass-rushing presence up front. That's still a hole they have to fill.
Pick change; previously Henry Anderson, DE/DT
Carolina Panthers: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
The Panthers went back-to-back defensive tackles this past April, so they could definitely do the same thing at the cornerback position (if they go with a corner in the first round) considering the circumstances.
Kansas City Chiefs: Ed Stinson, DE/DT, Alabama
The Chiefs decided to keep Tyson Jackson for one more season, but it's unlikely that he'll be back in 2014. With that in mind, they'll be looking for a new defensive end next offseason.
Philadelphia Eagles: Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama
There's doubt that Brandon Graham and Trent Cole can fit into the Eagles' new defense. If that turns out to be the case, Philadelphia will be searching for a pass-rusher across from Connor Barwin.
Pick change; previously Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB
Detroit Lions: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
Thanks to a barrage of injuries, Louis Delmas is no longer the player he once was. Delmas is owed $6 million in 2014 - his contract year - so the Lions could send him packing a season early.
Pick change; previously Cameron Erving, OT
Dallas Cowboys: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
I have no idea what the Cowboys were thinking when they passed on Sharrif Floyd at No. 18 overall. Moving down and then selecting a third-round center made it clearer than ever that they need a real general manager. In the meantime, Jerry Jones will continue to run the team into the ground.
Perhaps Jones will suddenly realize that Dallas has a glaring need on the interior of its defensive front. Timmy Jernigan would be a nice fit as Monte Kiffin's three-technique - just as Floyd would have been.
St. Louis Rams: Cyril Richardson, G/OT, Baylor
Another offensive line upgrade for the Rams, who have issues at left guard.
New York Giants: Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
The Giants have one of the worst linebacking corps in the NFL. Something must be done about this.
Chicago Bears: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
The Bears are another team that could consider back-to-back corner selections. It all depends on whether they re-sign their current players.
Pick change; previously Derek Carr, QB
Miami Dolphins: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Dolphins signed Dustin Keller this offseason, but he went on to tear his ACL, MCL and PCL in the preseason. They'll have to find a new tight end.
Baltimore Ravens: Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon
Dennis Pitta just suffered a brutal hip injury that could downgrade his effectiveness in the 2014 season. Ed Dickson, meanwhile, is an impending free agent. He sucks anyway, as does Dallas Clark.
Washington Redskins: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia
DeAngelo Hall won't be around much longer, so the Redskins will be in need of another cornerback sometime soon.
Pick change; previously Darqueze Dennard, CB
Atlanta Falcons: Dominique Easley, DE, Florida
Dominique Easley has been dominant this season. I wanted to slot him earlier, but couldn't find a good fit for him. The Falcons won't mind, as they could use a new left end with Kroy Buermann playing more linebacker.
Pick change; previously Ka'Deem Carey, RB
Cincinnati Bengals: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
The Bengals don't have much at center, as Kyle Cook beat out Trevor Robinson in an underwhelming camp battle.
Houston Texans: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
The Texans have a couple of defensive linemen heading for free agency in March, including Antonio Smith.
Green Bay Packers: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
Nick Perry was disappointing in his 2013 debut. If he doesn't improve, the Packers will need to bring in some competition for him next year.
Pick change; previously Ty Zimmerman, S
New Orleans Saints: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
I mocked Sheldon Richardson to the Saints a couple of times last spring because they happen to be thin at defensive end in their new 3-4. That's still the case.
Pick change; previously Deandre Coleman, DE/DT
New England Patriots: Michael Dyer, RB, Louisville
The Patriots, as we all know, like to take chances on troubled players. Michael Dyer would be a consensus first-round pick if he had a clean off-the-field history. New England may bring him in if Stevan Ridley's fumbling problems persist.
Pick change; previously Daniel McCullers, NT
San Francisco 49ers: Deandre Coleman, DE/DT, California
Justin Smith will be 34 in a few weeks. The 49ers will need a new starter up front sometime soon.
Pick change; previously Josh Huff, WR
Denver Broncos: Will Sutton, DE/DT, Arizona State
Will Sutton should be drafted much higher than this, but he'll fall because of size issues. Perhaps the Broncos will see the value in picking him; he'll be able to help them because they have no interior pass rush.
Pick change; previously Andrew Jackson, ILB
Seattle Seahawks: Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
The Seahawks have multiple areas of concern on their offensive line, including both guard spots. Imagine how potent Russell Wilson would be with upgraded protection.
