Welcome to Radio City Music Hall for the 1st Round of the 2014 NFL Draft and now on the clock……..

#1 Pick
Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina –This is the easiest and safest pick in the draft. Teaming him up with Cushing and Watt should make things difficult for the AFC North. And they should still be able to find a quality quarterback in the second round.

#2 Pick

Greg Robinson OT Auburn – The Rams must keep Sam Bradford upright and the mauler from Auburn is a great step in the right direction.

#3 Pick
Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo- Some would argue that Mack is the best defender in the draft and Jacksonville makes another move towards respectability with this selection

#4 Pick
Sammy Watkins- WR Clemson Just like Houston, the Browns need a quarterback but there will be a good option at the 26th pick in the first round. Watkins heads to Cleveland to create a dangerous duo with Josh Gordon.

#5 Pick
Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M LT is the foundation of the offensive line and who is currently manning the position for the silver and black now… Point proven

#6 Pick
Anthony Barr OLB UCLA- While the Falcons have OL troubles, the two best tackles are off the board so they settle for the former running back who has a high ceiling.

#7 Pick
Mike Evans WR – Texas A&M –The Tandem of Jackson and Evans is one in the same but that could work…. I just don’t see it considering the Bucs still need some speed at the position and Evans is not a burner.

#8 Pick
Blake Bortles QB UCF- Even though the Vikings resigned Cassel and have Ponder still on the roster, they aren’t settled at the position for the future and this is a step in the right direction.

#9 Pick
Eric Ebron TE- UNC Could ebron be the next Vernon Davis? If so Marrone & Co. could have a steal in the talented tight end.

#10 Pick
Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix S- Alabama Everyone thinks they know where the Lions are going but we don’t and probably wont until the pick is called. HA HA fits a need and he has the talent to upgrade the position significantly.

#11 Pick
CJ Mosley- Alabama Back to back Crimson Tide selections shows that Saban has the talent in Tuscaloosa even if he didn’t win the BCS Title last year. If Mosely can stay healthy he may prove to be one of the better players of the draft, but that’s a big IF…

#12 Pick
Taylor Lewan OT- Michigan Talented but troubled can the former U-M star stay out of the shine of the bright lights of the big city.

#13 Pick
Odell Beckam Jr. WR – LSU Some hinted at the Rams taking Watkins at #2 but they settle for the LSU receiver that may be considered the second most polished receiver in the draft.

#14 Pick
Aaron Donald DT- PITT Paired with Jared Allen and Lamar Houston will give the Bears one of the most formidable front fours, at least in name and potential in the NFL

#15 Pick
Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma St. – After running the 4.3 forty everyone had him pegged as the #1 corner he still needs some technique work but will be a versatile weapon for the Steelers.

#16 Pick
Kony Ealy DE Missouri – The Cowboys front seven is in restructuring mode and Ealy gives them a guy that has good pass rush ability and a willingness to play in space.

#17 Pick
Darquez Dennard  CB Michigan State-  Dennard brings the MSU toughness to a team that has been known for being the toughest in the league. He may not be flashy but he gets the job done.

#18 Pick
Marquise Lee WR USC- The Jets would love corner help but the three best are now gone, if lee can recapture his 2012 season the jets may finally have some receiver help for whoever ends up the QB.

#19 Pick
Zach Martin OT Notre Dame – The bullying situation of 2013 cost the dolphins two OL and they need to replace them ASAP Martin has G/T flexibility that should help the Phins

#20 Pick
Jeremia Attaochu OLB Georgia Tech- The Cardinals need to find a pass rusher for their 3-4 scheme and while this is a reach, Attaochu fits a major need and should be an early contributor

#21 Pick
Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State – Speed kills and this Buckeye has it and should pay dividends to a packer defense that is looking for their Kaepernick neutralizer.

#22 Pick
Calvin Pryor S Louisville – The Eagles gave up too many big plays and while Pryor struggles some in space the hard hitter will make receivers think twice

#23 Pick
Brandin Cooks WR Oregon St. – One of the fastest receivers at the combine the Chiefs need some help at the receiver spot and find it in a deep draft.

#24 Pick
Jason Verrett CB – TCU The Bengals opt for the safer selection in Verrett over Roby the OSU star. While smaller Varrett has made plays on the collegiate level

#25 Pick
Louis Nix DT Notre Dame Another safe pick that fills a need Nix gives them someone who can stability up front

#26 Pick
Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville – Just months ago he was looked at being a lock to be the #1 but the Browns get their franchise QB with their second pick… smart

#27 Pick
Bradley Roby CB Ohio State – The talented corner needs to grow up fast and lucky for him he heads to a saints team with a lot of leadership at the top which should help.

#28 Pick
Cyrus Kouandijio OT – Alabama There are some injury questions but the mammoth tackle should be able to step in and replace Jordan Gross and help keep Superman Cam upright

#29 Pick
Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech – Uncertainty with Gronk puts the pats in dire need of finding a security blanket for Brady, even if Gronk does bounch back Amaro gives the team a nice #2 TE option.

#30 Pick
Dee Ford DE Auburn – Adding Ford, who considers himself to be better than Clowney, allows for a potential replacement for Aldon Smith if he cant return soon

#31 Pick
Scott Crichton DE Oregon St- Although they signed Demarcus Ware he is getting up in age and its always easier to groom a replacement than find one.

#32 Pick
Tim Jernigan DT Florida St. – Even though Timmy J was gassed during the national championship game, the DT shows that he has the talent if he gets into shape and become a rotational player early on
