#1 St Louis: Sam Bradford (QB, Oklahoma)
This pick has been obvious for a long time and is not a surprise. The Rams need a franchise quarterback to build around.
#2 Detroit: Ndamukong Suh (DT, Nebraska)
I never once had Okung picked here, because Suh was the obvious choice. Every move in the off season was geared around taking Suh here.
#3 Tampa Bay: Gerald McCoy (DT, Oklahoma)
With Detroit taking Suh, Tampa Bay were happy to settle for McCoy. He might have the better career.
#4 Washington: Trent Williams (OT, Oklahoma)
Scheme fit and this makes Seattle's choice at #6 a lot easier.
#5 Kansas City: Eric Berry (S, Tennessee)
The new regime in Seattle were dreading this scenario. They wanted Williams or Berry, now both are gone. The Seahawks are on the clock.
#6 Seattle: Russell Okung (OT, Oklahoma State)
Welcome to Seattle, Russell Okung. The Seahawks have a great offensive line coach. Okung has the physical skills, let's hope the two can combine to sufficiently replace the great Walter Jones.
Watch the Seahawks take Russell Okung 6th overall
#7 Cleveland: Joe Haden (CB, Florida)
Haden is a great football player who fills a need in Cleveland's secondary. His best football is to come.
#8 Oakland: Rolando McClain (LB, Alabama)
I had McClain at #5 throughout, this is a much smarter pick than Oakland have made in the past. Coach on the field, can be very good.
#9 Buffalo: C.J. Spiller (RB, Clemson)
I'm higher on Spiller than some. Buffalo clearly don't like Anthony Davis, so their options were limited. They took the best player on their board.
#10 Jacksonville: Tyson Alualu (DT, California)
Nobody expected this - the draft's first major shock. They passed on Derrick Morgan and JPP. Interesting that the Jaguars didn't trade down, they don't own a second round pick.
#11 San Francisco: Anthony Davis (OT, Rutgers)
The Niners make a trade with Denver, swapping #13 for #11 for the price of a fourth rounder. Davis is raw but has major upside. He has the right coach.
#12 San Diego: Ryan Mathews (RB, Fresno State)
The Chargers make a big move, trading #28 for #12. The cost is Seattle's old second rounder at #40 and a fourth rounder. Was this actually to keep Mathews away from Seattle? Why else a trade this big?
#13 Philadelpia: Brandon Graham (DE, Michigan)
Three trades in a row. Again, is this to keep Graham away from Seattle? The cost - two third round picks. Seattle are on the clock.
#14 Seattle: Earl Thomas (S, Texas)
The Seahawks get their corner/safety hybrid. This guy is a playmaker. It seems like Pete Carroll was always sold on a tackle and safety combo. I stand by my opinion on this blog that I preferred Thomas over Berry.
Watch the Seahawks take Earl Thomas 14th overall
#15 New York Giants: Jason Pierre-Paul (DE, USF)
JPP has major upside, it's just whether or not he can match potential with long term production. Unbelievable that Derrick Morgan is still on the board.
#16 Tennessee: Derrick Morgan (DE, Georgia Tech)
This is amazing value for the Titans at their biggest position of need. Tennessee fans should be delighted with this.
#17 San Francisco: Mike Iupati (OG, Idaho)
The Niners, potentially, have an offensive line for the ages. Staley is entrenched, they now have a very good young book end in Davis and a guard with amazing upside.
#18 Pittsburgh: Maurkice Pouncey (C, Florida)
The Steelers finally spend a high pick on their offensive line after years of spoilt mocks. They always find value in Pittsburgh. Falcons pick should be interesting next.
#19 Atlanta: Sean Wetherspoon (LB, Missouri)
I think Wetherspoon is a bit over rated, but he fills a need for the Falcons. There's some big names still on the board. Houston will go cornerback.
#20 Houston: Kareem Jackson (CB, Alabama)
As expected, a cornerback for Houston. They had their pick of the bunch really, with Wilson and McCourty still around too.
#21 Cincinnati: Jermaine Gresham (TE, Oklahoma)
Nobody ever doubted Gresham's talents, it's just those serious knee injuries that worry me. If he was more durable, he'd have gone higher than this even.
#22 Denver: Demaryius Thomas (WR, Georgia Tech)
What a surprise, the Patriots trade down. Interesting choice for Denver, moving Marshall to take a guy with raw talent, but whom worked in a scheme from which we can learn only so much about his talents.
#23 Green Bay: Bryan Bulaga (OT, Iowa)
I projected a fall for Bulaga in my last few mocks. This is par value for a guy who isn't without his faults but will be a solid pro in Green Bay.
#24 Dallas: Dez Bryant (WR, Oklahoma State)
The Cowboys move above Baltimore to get Bryant. This is a great pick by Dallas and a great fit for Bryant.
#25 Denver: Tim Tebow (QB, Florida)
Unbelievable. There was some talk about Denver and Tebow today and it was clearly worth listening to. Denver move back into round one to get the Florida QB. Cutler and Marshall are out, Tebow and Thomas are in. Clausen is still on the board and this has been a drama filled first round.
#26 Arizona: Dan Williams (DT, Tennessee)
Bit of a surprise that Williams lasted this long considering the value of 3-4 nose tackles. Still, this has been a draft full of surprises. Nice value for Arizona who continue their scheme transition. Tebow-mania almost leads ESPN to forget the Cardinals are on the clock.
#27 New England: Devin McCourty (CB, Rutgers)
Interesting choice for the Patriots. They've passed on Odrick and Kindle to add to their secondary.
#28 Miami: Jared Odrick (DE, Penn State)
The Dolphins got a guy they might have considered at #12, they acquired Brandon Marshall and move up in round two. A+.
#29 New York Jets: Kyle Wilson (CB, Boise State)
Rex Ryan loves defensive backs. They continue to add talent to their secondary.
#30 Detroit: Jahvid Best (RB, California)
The Lions trade back into round one to guarantee Jahvid Best. Durability issues aside, Best could be a star - he's a home run hitter. The price wasn't much to move up.
#31 Indianapolis: Jerry Hughes (DE, TCU)
The Colts can't really go wrong with their infrastructure. Hughes is a nice addition who could thrive in that defensive scheme.
#32 New Orleans: Patrick Robinson (CB, Florida State)
He's capable of being very good but makes too many mistakes. Back-to-back first round cornerbacks for the Saints after Malcolm Jenkins in 2008 - does he go to safety now?
