First round – Updated 24th April
|#1 Eric Fisher (T, Central Michigan)
Jay Glazer says he believes Fisher goes #1. He doesn’t put out bad information.
|#2 Luke Joeckel (T, Texas A&M)
If Joeckel lasts to #2, I can understand why Jacksonville makes this pick. Even if he plays right tackle.
|#3 Sharrif Floyd (DT, Florida)
This will be a long rebuild.
|#4 Lane Johnson (T, Oklahoma)
Philly’s line was a mess last year. Johnson looks like a smart fit in Chip Kelly’s offense.
|#5 Ziggy Ansah (DE, BYU)
Plenty of options here for Detroit.
|#6 Dee Milliner (CB, Alabama)
I still think this is Cleveland’s favourite.
|#7 Dion Jordan (DE, Oregon)
With the tackles off the board they have to turn to defense. Jordan would be a nice consolation.
|#8 Matt Barkley (QB, USC)
Rumour has it this pick will come down to Barkley or Ryan Nassib.
|#9 Tavon Austin (WR, West Virginia)
They need a spark on offense.
|#10 Jonathan Cooper (G, North Carolina)
A lot of people say this will be a guard, despite the addition of Andy Levitre.
|#11 D.J. Fluker (T, Alabama)
There’s a buzz around this guy going into the draft.
|#12 Tyler Eifert (TE, Notre Dame)
If they trade for Branden Albert, this could be considered the final piece of an offensive rebuild.
|#13 Barkevious Mingo (DE, LSU)
They could be tempted by a quarterback. Mingo would provide a needed edge rusher, however.
|#14 Sheldon Richardson (DT, Missouri)
Fantastic pick for Carolina if this happens. Watch out for Atlanta trading up.
|#15 Star Lotuelei (DT, Utah)
Can play the nose or five technique.
|#16 Chance Warmack (G, Alabama)
Tough to pass on this guy here.
|#17 Jarvis Jones (OLB, Georgia)
He could sink in a bad way, but he is the prototype fit at outside linebacker in Pittsburgh’s scheme.
|#18 Kenny Vaccaro (S, Texas)
Fills a need.
|#19 Tank Carradine (DE, Florida State)
Looked good in his work out this week. Recovering well from an ACL injury.
|#20 Justin Pugh (G, Syracuse)
Getting rave reviews and this is a big need.
|#21 Eric Reid (S, LSU)
Speculation suggests a few teams have a round one grade on Reid.
|#22 Alec Ogletree (LB, Georgia)
They need a linebacker and Jeff Fisher’s never been afraid of a challenge.
|#23 D.J. Hayden (CB, Houston)
Leslie Fraser would approve this pick you’d imagine.
|#24 Desmond Trufant (CB, Washington)
They’ve been looking at the corners.
|#25 Sylvester Williams (DT, North Carolina)
Age is the only thing holding him back.
|#26 Datone Jones (DE, UCLA)
It’s easy to forget just how much San Francisco abused Green Bay’s defense in the playoffs.
|#27 Justin Hunter (WR, Tennessee)
Receiver looks like a strong option here.
|#28 Bjoern Werner (DE, Florida State)
Not a flashy player and could fall as a consequence.
|#29 Xavier Rhodes (CB, Florida State)
They’ll surely consider a cornerback here?
|#30 Jamar Taylor (CB, Boise State)
Will they move up to get Dion Jordan, Dee Milliner or Sheldon Richardson?
|#31 Matt Elam (S, Florida)
Hard-hitting safety, would look good in this defense.
|#32 Manti Te’o (LB, Notre Dame)
Big shoes to fill.
