|#1 Andrew Luck (QB, Stanford)
|#2 Robert Griffin III (QB, Baylor)
Robert Griffin III has probably already started looking for property in the capital.
|#3 Matt Kalil (OT, USC)
Minnesota want what the Rams got from Washington, and they’re trying, but ultimately they’ll stay here and take Kalil.
|#4 Trent Richardson (RB, Alabama)
The Browns have to find someone to build around. Richardson is a future superstar.
|#5 Morris Claiborne (CB, LSU)
The biggest spenders in free agency, Tampa Bay could still use a stud cornerback.
|#6 Justin Blackmon (WR, Oklahoma State)
The Rams need to find an X-factor on offense.
|#7 Stephon Gilmore (CB, South Carolina)
Who knows what the Jaguars are going to do? Will Gene Smith or Shahid Khan make the choice?
|#8 Ryan Tannehill (QB, Texas A&M)
Don’t be surprised after a month of hype if Miami does something else and Tannehill falls a bit.
|#9 Fletcher Cox (DT, Mississippi State)
Carolina could go in many different (defensive) directions.
|#10 Mark Barron (S, Alabama)
The Bills need a left tackle, but can they justify taking one here?
|#11 Luke Kuechly (LB, Boston College)
Scott Pioli loves guys like this – blue collar, high work ethic. He’ll make him fit into the 3-4.
|#12 Courtney Upshaw (DE, Alabama)
It’s all about the pass rush.
|#13 David DeCastro (OG, Stanford)
Arizona needs to make a solid commitment to the offensive line.
|#14 Dontari Poe (DT, Memphis)
If Barron falls here he could be the choice. Otherwise, I suspect Brockers or Poe.
|#15 Chandler Jones (DE, Syracuse)
The fastest riser going into the draft.
|#16 Riley Reiff (OT, Iowa)
New York wants to run the ball and dominate up front.
|#17 Dre Kirkpatrick (CB, Alabama)
Better in run support than coverage, but I suspect Cincy will try and add a corner in round one.
|#18 Melvin Ingram (DE, South Carolina)
If he starts to drop, where does he leave the board? San Diego would have alternatives here.
|#19 Quinton Coples (DE, North Carolina)
He could fall further if you believe the talk.
|#20 Michael Floyd (WR, Notre Dame)
Tough to read this guy’s stock. Tape not as great as the numbers/measurables. Off-field concerns. But talented.
|#21 Peter Konz (OG/C, Wisconsin)
|#22 Rueben Randle (WR, LSU)
After taking Richardson to star on the ground, they go for Randle.
|#23 Jonathan Martin (OT, Stanford)
Concerns about existing lineman could force Detroit to address the offensive line.
|#24 Dont’a Hightower (LB, Alabama)
This guy was made to play in the AFC North.
|#25 Michael Brockers (DT, LSU)
This is arguably Denver’s biggest need.
|#26 Stephen Hill (WR, Georgia Tech)
Would they consider Coby Fleener as an alternative?
|#27 Shea McClellin (OLB, Boise State)
Mike Vrabel is often the comparison for this guy.
|#28 Whitney Mercilus (DE, Illinois)
Green Bay’s priority has to be finding another pass rusher.
|#29 Kevin Zeitler (OG, Wisconsin)
There could be a late rush on offensive lineman.
|#30 Amini Silatolu (OG, Midwestern State)
The Niners may well take a guard and Silatolu is raw – just like Mike Iupati.
|#31 Doug Martin (RB, Boise State)
For whatever reason, I can just picture this guy as a Patriot.
|#32 Cordy Glenn (OT, Georgia)
He looks a bit sloppy and his stock is all over the place. Even so, he could go higher.

Seahawks beyond rounds 1-2
If the Seahawks go DE & LB with their first two picks, running back is likely to be high on the agenda in round three. Chris Polk and Robert Turbin could be options given they’re more likely to be able to carry the load if Marshawn Lynch misses time. That is the key here. It may put off the Seahawks looking at an Isaiah Pead or LaMichael James. If the value just isn’t there at running back, there are some nice options at tight end such as Dwayne Allen and Orson Charles. At receiver, Seattle worked out Brian Quick and if you get Dwight Jones at any point in this draft, I think you’re getting a steal.
Expect Seattle to look at the quarterback market in rounds 4-6, although round three is a possibility depending on how things shake out. Brock Osweiler, Kirk Cousins and Russell Wilson could be on the radar as ‘early’ options, with Chandler Harnish a possible later round choice. Keep an eye on any cornerback over 5-11. There’s solid depth in this class all the way to round four, so Seattle may be able to address several key needs.
