| Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3


==
1. Indianapolis Colts - QB Andrew Luck, Stanford

  Luck has been the number one player in the entire draft for a year. Why change now?

==
2. Washington Redskins (VIA STL) - QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor

  RG3 is an exceptional athlete and fits Mike Shanahan's offensive system very well.

==
3. Minnesota Vikings - OT Matt Kalil, Southern California

  The Vikings lack a starting left tackle, and Kalil could be a pro bowl player.

==
4. Cleveland Browns - RB Trent Richardson, Alabama

  Trent Richardson would help the Browns rebuild their rushing attack.

==
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - CB Morris Claiborne, L.S.U.

  Bucs' secondary needs talent, Claiborne is an exciting player who can work in any scheme.

==
6. St. Louis Rams (VIA WAS) - WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State

  Blackmon would give the Rams offense a badly needed threat on the outside.

==
7. Jacksonville Jaguars - CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina

  Jaguars need more talent at cornerback, Gilmore has been rising due to his skills and leadership.

==
8. Miami Dolphins - QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

  After missing out on several targets, the Dolphins set their sights on Tannehill and his upside.

==
9. Carolina Panthers - DT Michael Brockers, L.S.U.

  Panthers need to get stout along their defensive front. Brockers has huge potential.

==
10. Buffalo Bills - LB Luke Kuechly, Boston College

  Bills can use Kuechly's sure tackling at several positions on their defense.

==
11. Kansas City Chiefs - OG David Decastro, Stanford

  Chiefs fans remember the success the team enjoyed when they had Pro Bowl guards. Decastro turns back the clock.

==
12. Seattle Seahawks - DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina

  Seahawks can use the mercurial Coples to boost their pass rush. Many have bashed him but he's still elite.

==
13. Arizona Cardinals - OT Cordy Glenn, Georgia

  Glenn has rare agility for his size and can help at several positions.

==
14. Dallas Cowboys - S Mark Barron, Alabama

  Cowboys defense lacks a field general to keep the secondary accountable, Barron can fill that role .

==
15. Philadelphia Eagles - DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State

  Eagles may trade up to make this pick, they really like Cox for their wide 9's scheme.

==
16. New York Jets - LB Melvin Ingram, South Carolina

  Jets might trade up, but one way or another they will upgrade their pass rush. Mercilus also possible.

==
17. Cincinnati Bengals (VIA OAK) - WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame

  Bengals don't have a supplemental target to take the pressure off of A.J. Green.

==
18. San Diego Chargers - DE Nick Perry, Southern California

  Chargers can use Perry as an edge rusher immediately and improve their pass rush.

==
19. Chicago Bears - DE Whitney Mercilus, Illinois

  Bears can use a pass rushing force like Mercilus on the other side from Julius Peppers.

==
20. Tennessee Titans - CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

  Titans' lack a true #1 cornerback, the talented Kirkpatrick has that type of potential.

==
21. Cincinnati Bengals - DT Dontari Poe, Memphis

  Poe has rare size/speed and can completely wreck blocking schemes from the nose position.

==
22. Cleveland Browns (VIA ATL) - WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech

  Browns continue to rebuild their offense, this time looking at the wide out position late in rd 1.

==
23. Detroit Lions - OT Jonathan Martin, Stanford

  At some point the Lions will have to replace Jeff Backus, currently in his 11th season.

==
24. Pittsburgh Steelers - OT Reily Reiff, Iowa

  Steelers could use Reiff, who is a tough well-coached athlete, with potential to start early.

==
25. Denver Broncos - DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan State

  Broncos lost key DT in free agency, Worthy can not only replace, but upgrade the position.

==
26. Houston Texans - WR Rueben Randle, L.S.U.

  Texans are looking for a supplemental player across from Andre Johnson.

==
27. New England Patriots (VIA NO) - DE Courtney Upshaw, Alabama

  Pats want to improve their pass rush, Upshaw is a surly player known for his hard hitting..

==
28. Green Bay Packers - LB Shea McClellin, Boise State

  Packers need to take some pressure off of Clay Matthews and bring in another pass rusher.

==
29. Baltimore Ravens - DT Devon Still, Penn State

  Still is a versatile and tough player who can start at 5-tech in a 3-4 defense.

==
30. San Francisco 49ers - TE Coby Fleener, Stanford

  TE might not be an obvious need for the Niners, but Harbaugh loves double TE formations.

==
31. New England Patriots - OC Peter Konz, Wisconsin

  Retirement and injuries have taken toll on the interior of the Patriots offensive line.

==
32. New York Giants - LB Dont'a Hightower, Alabama

  Giants usually don't pick linebackers early, but Hightower's value might be too much to pass up.
