Early NFL Mock Draft

1. Jacksonville Jaguars, Matt Barkley The Jaguars are 1-8 and must take desperate measures in order to stay in Jacksonville. That may mean replacing Blaine Gabbert after just two seasons with Matt Barkley.
2. Kansas City Chiefs, Geno Smith The Chiefs are one of the better teams in the AFC except for one major position, quarterback. If Barkley isn't available the big-armed Smith is a no-brainer.
Geno Smith
3. Cleveland Browns, Barkevious Mingo Cleveland needs some type of pass rush which means Mingo could be a solution. He'll play at defensive end but the Browns need him more at outside linebacker.
4. Tennessee Titans, Jarvis Jones The fantastic pass rusher from Georgia should become the most talented pass rusher the Titans have had since Albert Haynesworth.
5. St. Louis Rams, Luke Joeckel Jason Smith never worked out which means they need some more help on the line. Joeckel is no doubt the top linemen available in this year's draft.
6. Carolina Panthers, Star Lotulelei The Panthers have a lot of issues and not all of them have to do with Cam Newton. The huge tackle from Utah should help improve their rush defense.
7. Buffalo Bills, Manti Te'o The Bills don't need a linebacker urgently in fact they might prefer a quarterback or receiver here. But Te'o will upgrade any defense even one as bad as the Bills.
8. Cincinnati Bengals, Bjoern Werner The Bengals need help at linebacker and Werner could fill them even though he is naturally a defensive end.
9. New York Jets, Johnathan Hankins A lot of Jets fans will push for Tyler Wilson here but they also have holes on defense. Hankins is a big bulky force up the middle.
10. Philadelphia Eagles, Chance Warmack Might be weird to see a guard this high up but Warmack is just that good and the Eagles need him.
11. Oakland Raiders, Tyler Wilson No Carson Palmer should be done very soon as he hasn't really upgraded these Raiders. They might go with a quarterback later but it will be tough to pass up Wilson if he is available.
12. Dallas Cowboys, Johnathan Jenkins Not as flashy as what some Cowboys fans might want but hey they really need a defensive tackle.
13. St. Louis Rams, Tyler Eifert The Rams need receivers, but when is the last time they had a quality tight end? They should pick up Eifert, the next in a long line of great Notre Dame tight ends.
14. New Orleans Saints, Sam Montgomery The Saints are aging especially on the line which may be adressed earlier then linebacker.
15. San Diego Chargers, Keenan Allen Phillip Rivers has struggled mightily but he needs more recievers. Keenan Allen should be a quality pickup.
16. Arizona Cardinals, Taylor Lewan At times the Cardinals protection has been atrocious. If Lewan is still on the board he'll be this team's pick.
17. Miami Dolphins, Justin Hunter If Tannehill is to develope he needs more options then Brian Hartline.
18. Tampa Bay Buccaners Dee Milliner The Buccaners should keep trying to improve their secondary and Milliner should be a steal this late.
19. Minnesota Vikings, Kawaan Short The Vikings addressed their O-Line. Now about that defensive line. Short is a nice pickup from around the area.
20. Indianapolis Colts, Johnathan Banks Banks, a shutdown corner from Mississippi State should help the Colts pass defense immediately.
21. Detroit Lions, Barrett Jones The versatile Jones will help the Lions improve on protecting Stafford.
22. Seattle Seahawks, Robert Woods When a team wants Terrell Owens you know they need receivers. Woods should be an easy selection for an improving team,
23. Pittsburgh Steelers, C.J. Mosley The Steelers love gritty football. Mosley should be exactly what the Steelers need.
24. New York Giants, Dion Jordan If Jordan is available the Giants should bolster their pass rush with this talent from Oregon.
25. Denver Broncos, Slyvester Williams This monster from UNC should give the Broncos a fantastic defense.
26. Green Bay Packers Alex Okafor The Packers don't have many holes. They'll use this as a consolation pick.
27. Chicago Bears, Sheldon Richardson The Bears defensive line has been atrocious over the years which means Richardson shouldn't be too tough of a pick here.
28. Baltimore Ravens, Alec Ogletree Will Ogletree be the replacement for Ray Lewis?
29. New England Patriots, Terrance Williams Wes Welker won't last forever. Tom Brady's next go-to target could be Williams, a stud from Baylor.
30. Houston Texans Jesse Williams The beast from 'Bama should be a formidable presence alongside J.J. Watt.
31. San Francisco 49ers, Eric Reid The sure tackler Reid will be a fantastic late pickup for the Niners.
32. Atlanta Falcons Eric Fisher The Falcons will get someone to protect Matt Ryan. Fisher could be that guy.
