  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    Many might say that the Jaguars have the worst quarterback situation in the NFL. They would all be wrong. Jacksonville has a franchise signal-caller. His name is Teddy Bridgewater.

    Given how important the quarterback position is, Bridgewater will the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, barring injury or late-season collapse (or Marcus Mariota declaring). There’s really no discussion. Jadeveon Clowney wouldn’t change the Jaguars’ franchise. Bridgewater would.

    I should mention that I’ve seen some project Mariota to be the No. 1 pick. He’d be in contention, but redshirt sophomore quarterbacks seldom declare. Andrew Luck didn’t even come out despite being guaranteed the No. 1 spot. Besides, Mariota is only 19. I’m not saying he won’t declare, but I think it’s more than likely that he’ll stay at Oregon. Mariota is the No. 1 pick in my 2015 NFL Mock Draft.

    The Jaguars were victorious last week, but they’re very fortunate Tampa Bay got into the win column as well. Jacksonville better not win another game, or it’ll screw up its entire future.

    By the way, I’m doing this live because I thought it’d be fun to get instant feedback. I’m going to post my mock anyway, so why not do it this way? Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
    A quarterback will be considered, but Mike Glennon has played well in three of his six starts this year, as he recently went 17-of-23 for 168 yards and two touchdowns in Seattle, nearly upsetting the Seahawks as a double-digit underdog. If he continues to perform well, Tampa Bay may give him another season.

    If this is the case, Jadeveon Clowney would be a no-brainer, as he would bolster a pass rush that recently didn’t log a single sack against Matt Ryan and his patchwork offensive line.

    Some call Clowney the top defensive prospect to come along in years. Clowney has motivational problems, as Charlie Campbell reported before anyone else about two months ago. Clowney is having a mediocre season, but teams will overlook that in favor of his talent. There were similar concerns with Julius Peppers coming out of North Carolina in 2002, and he still went No. 2 overall.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA
    Anthony Barr is a terrific fit for Atlanta’s defense. Kroy Biermann had been playing the defensive end-outside linebacker hybrid role prior to tearing his Achilles. Biermann, who will be entering a walk year in 2014, may not be 100 percent. Plus, it’s not like the Falcons didn’t need an upgrade anyway. Their pass rush is severely lacking, so Barr would definitely bolster that area.

    Barr is the best player available; some argue that he should be chosen before Jadeveon Clowney. A former running back, Barr played defense for the first time last season and made an instant impact, recording 13 sacks. He has 13 TFL and six sacks through nine games this season. The sky’s the limit for him, as he’ll only get better at his new position.

  4. Minnesota Vikings: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
    The Vikings paid Josh Freeman $3 million to find out if he can be their long-term franchise quarterback. That’s how desperate they are for one. Christian Ponder isn’t too bad, but he’s not good enough to consistently lead the team in the playoffs.

    I mentioned earlier that I don’t like to slot redshirt sophomores into my mock drafts. Brett Hundley is one, but there were reports two weeks ago that his representatives met with Jay-Z’s agency. His father denied this, but what else would he have told the media? If these rumors are true, Hundley will likely enter the 2014 NFL Draft, where he will probably be a top-10 pick. Hundley isn’t playing up to expectations this season, but he has way too much upside not to be considered here by a team that is in such dire need of a quarterback.



  5. Houston Texans: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
    Wide receiver is not a top need for the Texans, but there isn’t a better match for them in this scenario than Mike Evans. They spent a first-round pick on another wideout last year, but the position could be addressed again. Andre Johnson, 33 in July, is owed $28 million over the next three years. That’s way too much for a cap-strapped Houston squad. They may ask him to renegotiate, but Johnson, sensing he has just one more shot at a big pay day, may want to move on to a team with a more stable quarterbacking situation.

  6. Buffalo Bills: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
    I wrote a few weeks ago that it was time to shoot Vic Beasley up in my 2014 NFL Mock Draft. I was a bit reluctant to do so because of his lacking size, but he has been a terror this season. Besides, he makes a ton of sense for Buffalo’s defense.

    The Bills spent lots of energy addressing their offense in the 2013 NFL Draft, but they didn’t do anything to help their pass rush. That would explain why they traded for Jerry Hughes a couple of days afterward.

  7. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
    Kelvin Beachum had a couple of nice starts before bombing against the Raiders. The Steelers then tried Mike Adams, who sucked once again. Beachem was back against the Patriots, and he struggled again. They need a solution at left tackle.

    Pick change; previously Taylor Lewan, OT

  8. St. Louis Rams: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
    The Rams signed Jake Long this past offseason, but they still need tackle help because Rodger Saffold will be a free agent next spring. Besides, who knows how long their current left tackle will be able to hold up? Long is having a solid season, but he has an extensive injury history.

    Pick change; previously Louis Nix, NT



  9. Oakland Raiders: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
    Terrelle Pryor got off to a hot start, but he has struggled during the past few weeks. Perhaps having a legitimate No. 1 receiver at his disposal would help him develop. Denarius Moore and Rod Streater are both capable, but neither is a legitimate top wideout. Sammy Watkins would easily fill that role.

  10. New York Giants: C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
    The Giants have dealt with issues at linebacker for years. They even traded for the injury-prone Jon Beason recently, who has predictably struggled. It’s time for this to come to an end. New York can solidify its weakest position with the top non-rushing linebacker in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Jake Matthews, OT

  11. St. Louis Rams: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
    St. Louis’ defense has been poor for most of the year for many reasons. One is the play of safety Rodney McLeod. He hasn’t been terrible, but it’s clear that the Rams need to find an upgrade next to T.J. McDonald. HaHa Clinton-Dix is arguably the top defensive player available who makes sense for St. Louis.

  12. Cleveland Browns: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    The Browns obviously have to grab a quarterback with one of their two selections. Brandon Weeden is awful with his backhanded, underhanded and hook-shot passes. Brian Hoyer was decent in his two full games, but he’s likely not the long-term answer. Jason Campbell has looked solid, but he can’t be viewed as the team’s future. Cleveland’s new regime has to find the quarterback it wants to roll with going forward.

    Derek Carr, who can make any throw, has been awesome this year, and he’s moving into top-10 consideration. There might be some trepidation considering that his older brother busted, but he shouldn’t be penalized for having an underachieving sibling. Think Aaron and Jordan Rodgers, Carson and Jordan Palmer, etc.

    Pick change; previously Tajh Boyd, QB



  13. Miami Dolphins: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
    Both Randy Starks and Paul Soliai are impending free agents. If Soliai leaves – contract negotations broke down prior to the season – that would really weaken the team’s run defense. Louis Nix, who can stuff the rush and get to the quarterback, would be a worthy replacement.

    Pick change; previously Ra’Shede Hageman, DT

  14. Baltimore Ravens: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
    It should be quite apparent that the Ravens desperately need help at receiver. Neither Jacoby Jones nor Marlon Brown should be a No. 2 wideout in the NFL. Think Baltimore misses Anquan Boldin?

  15. Tennessee Titans: Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson
    The Titans needed to make the playoffs for this current regime to survive. It’s likely that Mike Munchak and the front office are axed this offseason. If that’s the case, the new staff may want to bring in its own quarterback. Outside of a few games earlier in the season, Jake Locker hasn’t shown much promise. Besides, he hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

    Tajh Boyd struggled in a big game against Florida State and has some height issues, which is why I’ve moved him down in my mock draft. However, he’s still worthy of being chosen in the middle of the first round.

    Pick change; previously C.J. Mosley ILB

  16. San Diego Chargers: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
    The Chargers’ pathetic defense has made every single quarterback look like a Pro Bowler this year. They have a dreadful cornerback situation, which could be remedied with the use of a first-round pick in May’s draft.
