NFL Draft

Jadeveon Clowney to Declare for Draft

NFL Report Update: Following Sunday's win over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl, Jadeveon Clowney told a reporter that he has made up his mind; he will enter in the NFL Draft. Clowney had somewhat of a disappointing season in 2013, mustering just three sacks during the regular season in 2013, compared to his 13 sacks in 2012. Despite this, Clowney is one of Houston's many options for the first overall pick along with Teddy Bridgewater. Good luck to Clowney in the pros!

2014 NFL Mock Draft 3.0

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Teddy Bridgewater: Even though Teddy Bridgewater is no longer the favorite to win the Heisman, his incredible skill set makes him the favorite to be drafted first overall, probably by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2013, Bridgewater has completed 72.0% of his passes as of  October 23rd, with 2,213 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, and just 2 interceptions. Bridgewater is the real deal.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Marcus Mariota: Marcus Mariota, the starting quarterback for Oregon, has quickly become the front runner in the race for the Heisman Trophy. Marcus Mariota is a dual threat quarterbacks, who is just as talented at running the ball as he is at passing it. Mariota is incredibly quick, and his ability to make big plays earns him the second overall pick in the draft.

3. Oakland Raiders: OT Jake Matthews: The Oakland Raiders are ranked last in the league in sacks allowed with 28. Young quarterback Terrelle Pryor has the potential to be an above-average quarterback in the league, but before that happens, the Oakland Raiders must protect him the pocket. Jake Matthews is the best offensive lineman in the draft, so it makes sense for him to be drafted by Oakland.

4. Buffalo Bills: OT Taylor Lewan: Ever since the Bills lost Andy Levitre at tackle, they have been searching desperately for a solid replacement. Enter Taylor Lewan. After injuring his leg against Penn State earlier in the season, Lewan returned to play a week later against Indiana, and his performance was impeccable as usual. Lewan is still a solid pick behind Jake Matthews.

5. New York Giants: DE Jadeveon Clowney: Jadeveon Clowney's stock value has rapidly decreased over the course of a season due to injuries and inconsistent play. In 5 games, Clowney has recorded just two sacks with no forced fumbles. Clowney is still a very talented defensive end with size, speed, and power. The New York Giants would be thrilled to have Clowney resurrect their struggling pass rush.

6. Minnesota Vikings: DT Louis Nix III: Three of Minnesota's four offensive linemen will be free agents at the end of the 2013 season. The Vikings may have drafted defensive tackle Shariff Floyd in the 2012 draft, but there is no guarantee that fellow defensive tackle Kevin Williams will be re-signed. Louis Nix III is the best tackle in this draft, and is definitely worth a top 10 pick by the Vikings.

7. Arizona Cardinals: WR Sammy Watkins: We still believe that the Arizona Cardinals will select wide receiver Sammy Watkins with their seventh pick in the draft. Larry Fitzgerald turned 30 years old last August, so his days as one of the best receivers in the league are over. With Tajh Boyd as quarterback, Sammy Watkins has been averaging 14.8 yards per catch with 5 receiving touchdowns in 2013. Watkins is one of the most talented offensive weapons in this year's draft class.

8. Tennessee Titans: OLB Anthony Barr: Outside linebacker Zach Brown will likely leave Tennessee at the end of this season once his contract expires, so the Titans will look to fill this void in the draft. Anthony Barr is by far the best linebacker of this entire draft class, and is worth a first round draft pick by the Titans.

9. St. Louis Rams: QB Brett Hundley: In last Sunday's game, Sam Bradford tore his ACL, and sadly, he will be out for the rest of the season. In a draft class loaded with above-average quarterbacks, Brett Hundley may be their best option in the first round.

10. Houston Texans: QB AJ McCarron: McCarron, the starting quarterback for Alabama, has already won three National Championships, proving he is capable of winning big games. Sure, McCarron's supporting cast is the best of any football team in the nation, but I would say this senior is the most NFL-ready of any quarterback in the NFL.

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Pre-Bowl Game Edition

1. Houston Texans: QB Teddy Bridgewater: Despite his many talents, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was not even in contention for the Heisman Trophy. But even though Bridgewater is coming from a weak football school, as well as the fact that his team was not involved in the BCS Championship discussion, NFL teams are eager to draft Bridgewater first overall. Bridgewater is absolutely incredible in the pocket, and his ability to throw on the run makes it difficult for defenses to contain him even when they bring the blitz.

2. St. Louis (via Washington): OT Jake Matthews: Jake Matthews, by far the best lineman in this year's draft, would be be a great new addition to the Rams' offensive line. With Jake Matthews on one side of the offensive line, and Jake Long on the other, the St Louis Rams might be able to have the most talented O-Line in the National Football League. Apart from improving the offensive line, St. Louis may be tempted to draft a quarterback with the second pick in the draft; however, assuming that Sam Bradford can return from his injury by the start of next season, the offensive line must be upgraded as soon as possible.

3. Oakland Raiders: DE Jadeveon Clowney: The Oakland Raiders' defensive line has definitely improved since last season, but it will be extremely difficult to pass on the highly talented defensive end out of South Carolina, Jadeveon Clowney. Clowney's skill set will earn him extroidanary numbers at the NFL combine, so his draft stock will sky rocket upwards despite his sub-par play in 2013.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Derek Carr: This quarterback out of Fresno State flew under the radar throughout the 2013 regular season, and by the end of the year, Carr led the entire nation in both passing yards (4,866) and passing touchdowns (48). Similarly to Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr is coming from a relatively small football school, Fresno State, which may hurt his draft stock slightly.

5. Atlanta Falcons: LB Anthony Barr: After losing to San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game in 2012, many injuries in 2013 caused the Falcons to go 4-10 as of Week 15. Atlanta's defense, ranking 29th in total yards allowed, needs help with both their run and pass defense, and an athletic linebacker/defensive end like Anthony Barr will surely benefit this struggling team.

6. Cleveland Browns: QB Blake Bortles: After Marcus Mariota announced to the football world that he would be staying at Oregon for his senior year, Blake Bortles has rocketed upwards in the draft boards. Bortles, standing at 6'3" and 240 pounds, has been compared to the likes of Ben Roethlisberger, where both of them are similar in size yet very athletic quarterbacks. It is time for Cleveland to give up on second year quarterback Brandon Weeden.

7. New York Giants: OLB Khalil Mack: Not many players from the University at Buffalo are drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft, but Khalil Mack is an extraordinary talent. This season, Mack posted 100 tackles and 10.5 sacks, where 2.5 of those sacks came against Ohio State in the season opener. The New York Giants ranked 26th overall in defensive sacks, so Khalil Mack would be a great addition to this team.

8. Buffalo Bills: WR Samy Watkins: If the Buffalo Bills wish to build their offense around EJ Manuel, then a new wide receiver should be the first new addition in the offseason. Sammy Watkins from Clemson caught 83 passes for 1,237 yards and 10 scores in 2013, and he is clearly the best wide receiver in this year's draft. The Bills are still one or two years away from making the playoffs, and in order to turn around their game immediately, they must make a huge splash in free agency.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Johnny Manziel: There is no disputing that Johnny Manziel is an incredibly talented quarterbacks, but his lack of size and off the field troubles may cause several teams to pass. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a team that will be willing to take the risk, hoping that Manziel can rescue their franchise.

10. Minnesota Vikings: CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu: As of Week 16, the Minnesota Vikings rank dead last in the NFL in passing yards allowed with 294.4 yards per game. The Vikings were hoping that rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes could fix the problem with their pass defense in 2012, but obviously, there was no improvement. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is one of the best defenders in this draft class, and hopefully, he can team up with Xavier Rhodes to form one of the best pass defenses in the league.

2013 NFL Mock Draft 4.0

1. Kansas City Chiefs: OT Luke Joeckel: Unlike the 2012 NFL draft, where Indianapolis was clearly going to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick, this year, half a dozen players have the potential to be drafted by Kansas City. OT Eric Fisher has been climbing up mock drafts instead of OT Luke Joeckel, the original favorite to be selected by Kansis City. Though Joeckel remains my first overall pick in the draft, Eric Fishers has a legitimate shot at playing in Kansas City in the 2013 NFL season.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE/OLB Dion Jordan: Jacksonville might just have the worst roster on paper in the entire National Football League. Technically, every position apart from running back needs to be improved if they wish to compete for a playoff spot. If the Jaguars were to draft defensive end Dion Jordan, Jordan would be playing alongside fellow defensive end Jason Babin, and hopefully, Jacksonville's pass rush will be more reliable in 2013.

3. Oakland Raiders: DT Sharrif Floyd: A surprisingly silent offseason for the Oakland Raiders means 2013 will not be any more successful than 2012. The signing of defensive tackle Vance Walker will not be able to solve their problems on the defensive line, which is why Sharrif Floyd will be drafted third overall in April.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Dee Milliner: After what appeared to be the construction of a Dream Team, Philadelphia's hopes of a Super Bowl title were quickly dashed. In March, the Eagles organization parted ways with cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomgha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, two former Pro-Bowlers. The Eagles will look to add Milliner to their roster, so they can focus on a struggling offensive line in the next several rounds.

5. Detroit Lions: DE Ezekiel Ansah: Ansah has been playing football for approximately three years since he moved to the United States from Ghana, but already has skills resembling All-Pro defenders in the National Football League. His technique is in need of tweaking, which is why he will not overtake Dion Jordan at the number two spot, but the Lions need a defensive end after their busy offseason on the offensive side of the ball.

6. Cleveland Browns: QB Geno Smith: It seems the Cleveland Browns are willing to give quarterback Brandon Weeden another shot at the starting quarterback position, even though his mediocre rookie season did not lead Cleveland into the 2012 playoffs. With the sixth overall pick in the draft, it would be very tempting to draft Geno Smith as a backup. Head coach Rob Chudzinski served as the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, and has experience with mobile quarterbacks, seeing that he was able to re-animate the Panthers offense with quarterback Cam Newton.

7. Arizona Cardinals: OT Eric Fisher: Despite having the worst offensive line in the entire league (an NFL worst 58 sacks allowed in 2012), the Arizona Cardinals did not add a single offensive lineman through free agency. Clearly, the Cardinals are looking to draft someone to protect their quarterback in a draft class loaded with offensive linemen. Eric Fisher's draft stock is gradually climbing upwards, and it is possible the Arizona Cardinals won't even have the opportunity to draft Eric Fisher at the seventh overall pick in the draft.

8. Buffalo Bills: DE Björn Werner: The Buffalo Bills organization signed Mario Williams to a blockbuster deal in 2012, but his productivity did not live up to the hype. Björn Werner, a junior coming out of Florida State, is the reigning ACC Defensive Player of the Year, and when alongside Mario Williams, teams will be forced to adjust their offensive schemes.

9. New York Jets: OLB Barkevious Mingo: Rex Ryan and the New York Jets have been showing a lot of interest in Barkevious Mingo, an outside linebacker/defensive end from LSU. Mingo posted a 40-yard-dash time of 4.58 seconds at the combine, and hopefully, Mingo would be able to ressurect a fading franchise.

10. Tennessee Titans: OG Chance Warmack: There is little doubt in my mind that Tennessee will draft a guard with the tenth overall pick. The titans signed running back Shonne Green to a minor deal this past off season, as he will join Chris Johnson in the back-field. The Titans offensive line needs minor tweaking before Week 1, and Chance Warmack fits the bill. Chance Warmack is a very talented offensive lineman, but he is also competing against guard Jonathan Cooper in the 2013 draft for a spot on the Titans roster.

2013 NFL Mock Draft 3.5

1. Kansas City Chiefs: OT Luke Joeckel: I am still a firm believer that the Kansas City Chiefs will use their first overall pick to draft offensive lineman Luke Joeckel. The release of offensive tackle Eric Winston only solidifies my belief. At 6'6" and 310 pounds, Luke Joeckel will surely do a great job of protecting newly acquired quarterback Alex Smith. Joeckel has proven he can protect both types of passers while playing at Texas A&M; a mobile quarterback in Johnny Manziel, and a pocket-passer in Ryan Tannehill.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Ziggy Ansah: The NFL combine is a great way for small school individuals to blossom into first round draft picks. Ziggy Ansah has been playing football for just three years, but already he has proven himself to be worth the second overall pick. Ansah's size and talent closely resembles Jason Pierre-Paul, and rumors have been swirling around that Jacksonville would not be afraid to take a risk in the draft.

3. Oakland Raiders: DT Sharrif Floyd: As the season progressed, Sharrif Floyd became a stronger presence on defense. In his final game at Florida, Floyd posted two sacks with 5 tackles. Even though he weighs close to 300 pounds, Sharrif Floyd ran 40 yards in 4.92 seconds, and his draft stock has been soaring upwards ever since.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: OLB/DE Dion Jordan: Dion Jordan has all the attributes necessary to succeed in the NFL. His combination of size and speed resembles Aldon Smith, apart from the 40-yard dash times, where Jordan's time beat Smith's time by a decent margin. Jordan should not feel out of place in Philly with former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly leading the way.

5. Detroit Lions: CB Dee Milliner: Out of all the conferences in the NCAA, the conference with the most prestigious reputation as of late is awarded to the South Eastern Conference. Corner back Dee Milliner is a product of the SEC, so clearly, he knows what it takes to succeed in a competitive environment. A blazing 40 yard dash time will provide Detroit with a shutdown corner they so desperately need.

6. Cleveland Browns: OLB Jarvis Jones: The only major downside to Jarvis Jones is his spinal stenosis. Though Jarvis has said he feels fine at the moment, many teams are worried with his current state of health. When healthy, Jarvis Jones may be the highest rated prospect in the draft. His 14.5 sacks  and 24.5 tackles for loss in 2012 rightfully earned him All-American honors. Cleveland would certainly be taking a risk by drafting Jones.

7. Arizona Cardinals: OT Eric Fisher: Alex Smith has clearly effected Geno Smith's draft stock, where in our new mock draft, he is not even in the top 10. Eric Fisher is a great option at the seventh overall spot in the draft. Arizona allowed a mind-boggling 58 sacks. Maybe John Skelton or Kevin Kolb or whomever the Cardinals sign as quarterback can have more time in the pocket.

8. Buffalo Bills: WR Tavon Austin: Tavon Austin's blazing speed at the combine makes him a serious contender to be drafted in the top 10. While attending West Virginia, Austin posted a very honorable stat line, with 1,289 receiving yards and 15 total touchdowns. Buffalo has several options if they wish to enhance their wide receiver corp, whether it be through the draft or free agency. Tavon Austin would be a great teammate alongside Stevie Johnson in New York.

9. New York Jets: OLB Barkevious Mingo: Barkevious Mingo's sack production while playing for LSU has hurt his draft stock in the eyes of scouts. New York tends to draft defense when April rolls around. Truthfully speaking, Geno Smith may be one of the best options at ninth overall, but OLB Barkevious Mingo is likely going to be a member of the Jets in 2013.

10. Tennessee Titans: OG Chance Warmack: For a team that relies so heavily on the running game, Tennessee can not afford to have a weak offensive line. A young quarterback with a speedy running back could easily be well protected by Chance Warmack. Size and speed are not a problem, so NFL teams certainly love to draft defenders out of the SEC.

     Our final mock draft before the NFL combine! Be sure to comment, subscribe, or like us on Facebook at! Also, subscribe to us on YouTube, where we create monthly highlight videos for some of the most exciting NFL players! Lastly, send us your mock drafts at!

1. Kansas City Chiefs: QB Geno Smith: The only two players fighting for the number one spot in the draft is Smith and offensive lineman Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M. Kansas City is looking to rebuild their franchise, and new head coach Andy Reid already knows how to build a game plan around a mobile quarterback. Geno Smith will likely solidify his spot as number one after the combine.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Bjoern Warner: The Jaguars ranked dead last in sacks last season, and there are not many noteworthy free agents at the defensive end position. Bjoern Warner has decided to enter the 2013 NFL Draft, and has been compared to Chris Long for his consistent and well rounded attributes. Warner may be the long term solution for the Jacksonville Jaguars' pass rush.

Ryan Nassib
3. Oakland Raiders: DT Star Lotulelei: The Oakland Raiders may lose both Richard Seymour and Desmond Bryant to free agency, so drafting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei would make a lot of sense. Lotuelei is very well rounded, providing solutions for Oakland's pass rush and run blocking.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: OT Luke Joeckel: Since Chip Kelly will likely stick with Michael Vick at quarterback, it is time the Eagles draft someone who has the ability to protect him. Luke Joeckel has the potential to be selected first overall, and hopefully, Joeckel can reduce the 48 sacks allowed by Philadelphia's offensive line in 2012.

5. Detroit Lions: DE Demontre Moore: Most would agree that Detroit is in desperate need of a pass rusher with Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch both unlikely to return in 2013. Demontre Moore is the best pass rusher left on the board, and should be able to replace Avril on the defensive line.

6. Cleveland Browns: LB Jarvis Jones: Jarvis Jones' statistics while at Georgia turned many heads, and his 14.5 sacks would surely help Cleveland's defense. Its is unlikely the Browns will attempt to draft yet another quarterback with their first round pick, so it is time for them to strengthen a mediocre defense.

7. Arizona Cardinals: OT Eric Fisher: Even though Arizona's quarterback problem needs to be solved, so does the horrendous offensive line, a group who allowed 58 sacks in 2013, the most out of any team. Eric Fisher deserves to be taken over a quarterback like Matt Barkley or Tyler Wilson, where Arizona can shop for a quarterback in free agency.

8. Buffalo Bills: QB Ryan Nassib: I remain a firm believer that Ryan Nassib, a quarterback from Syracuse, will be drafted by the Buffalo Bills. Seven coaches who currently work for the Buffalo Bills at one point in their career worked at Syracuse. Former quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is out of the picture, and Nassib will be his replacement in 2013.

9. New York Jets: DE Dion Jordan: Rex Ryan loves drafting defensive players, and New York's defense remains weak at certain positions. Dion Jordan is a vicious tackler, and does not give up easily on the ball. Jordan is a potential pro-bowler, and I firmly believe Jordan's draft stock will only rise after the combine.

10. Tennessee Titans: DE Barkevious Mingo: Along with Mingo, many draft experts believe guard Chance Warmack will be taken tenth overall by the Tennessee Titans. Mingo could potentially be selected as high as number two overall, but as he falls to number ten, the Titans will eagerly pair him up with Derrick Morgan to form a powerful defensive line.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Post-Combine

1. Kansas City Chiefs: OT Luke Joeckel: With Alex Smith expected to be traded to Kansas City, the Chiefs no longer need to draft Geno Smith in order to fill the gap at quarterback. New head coach Andy Reid has said he will draft the best player on the board, which is why Luke Joeckel will be selected first overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Bjoern Warner: Jacksonville's new logo may be the start of a brand new franchise, so drafting Bjoern Warner has the potential to solve the problem on defense. The Jaguars ranked dead last in sacks last season, allowing the opposing team's quarterback to feel comfortable in the pocket. Jacksonville has many other options at defensive end, but Warner is capable of fixing the problem long term.

3. Oakland Raiders: QB Geno Smith: Even though Carson Palmer had a successful 2012 season statistically, the Oakland Raiders appear to be interested in drafting Geno Smith. Originally, Smith was the favorite to be drafted first overall, but now that Kansas City is in the process of acquiring Alex Smith, Geno will fall to number 3 in the draft.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: OLB Dion Jordan: At 6'6" and 250 pounds, Jordan has extraordinary speed that will improve Philadelphia's sack problem. The Eagles ranked 25th overall in terms of sacks, and former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly would be more than thrilled to draft one of his former players.

5. Detroit Lions: CB Dee Milliner: Milliner's incredible 40 yard dash time of 4.37 seconds has increased his draft stock exponentially. Detroit is in desperate need of a shut down corner if the Lions lose Chris Houston and Jacob Lacey via free agency.

6. Cleveland Browns: DE Barkevious Mingo: A corner back would be nice at the sixth spot in the draft, but because we expect Milliner to be drafted by Detroit, the Browns may have to settle with a defensive end. Barkevious Mingo, unlike DE Demontre Moore, maintained his high draft stock after a good showing at the combine. The better move for Cleveland would be to trade down and wait for a draft class with more depth, but if they were to keep their sixth overall pick, Cleveland will draft Mingo in order to improve their mediocre defense.

7. Arizona Cardinals: QB Matt Barkley: Offensive lineman Eric Fisher appears to be the more appropriate pick for Arizona, but many experts believe the Cardinals will take Matt Barkley in the first round. Barkley did not play any games toward the end of the 2012 season at USC due to an injury. This same injury kept him from participating the 2013 NFL combine. Even then, Arizona likes their chances with Barkley as their new quarterback in September.

8. Buffalo Bills: WR Cordarelle Patterson: Patterson is one of the most talented offensive players in this year's draft class. At 6'2", the former Tennessee Volunteer resembles NFL star wide receiver Julio Jones, with size, speed, and spectacular hands. Whomever the Bills select at quarterback (via free agency or draft), he will have a second option apart from Stevie Johnson.

9. New York Jets: OLB Ezekiel Ansah: Historically, Rex Ryan loves those players who dumbfounded scouts at the NFL combine. Last weekend, Ezekiel Ansah ran the 40 yard dash in 4.60 seconds. Considering the BYU linebacker is 6'5" and 270 pounds, his insane athleticism is bound to catch the eye of Rex Ryan, whose New York Jets could use an upgrade on the defensive side of the ball.

10. Tennessee Titans: OG Chance Warmack: While at Alabama, Chance Warmack successfully cleared the lane for running backs Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson, and Eddie Lacey. Warmack's size can overpower most defensive ends, and the Titans will look to rush their star running back Chris Johnson a lot more in 2013.

2013 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Picks 1-10

Feel Free to send us your mock drafts by emailing me at!

1. Kansas City Chiefs: QB Geno Smith: Though the "Geno Smith For Heisman" ended halfway through the season, his talent in the eyes of scouts remains valuable. By signing Andy Reid for the head coaching job, Kansas City proved they are not afraid to rebuild this team for the next two or three years. They can start by drafting Smith, and acquiring players to suit their quarterback's needs.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Demontre Moore: Where to begin? Jacksonville needs help at almost every position on the field. Offensive line, defensive line, quarterback; the team struggles in almost every statistical category. Demontre Moore, a defensive end out of Texas A&M, has the potential to revive a pass rush ranking dead last in the National Football League.

Star Lotulelei
3. Oakland Raiders: DT Star Lotulelei: Oakland's defensive line has suffered when it comes to both running the ball, as well as applying pressure on the quarterback. Drafting a well rounded defensive tackle may be a step in the right direction for this struggling front seven.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: OT Luke Joeckel: While coaching Oregon, Chip Kelly enjoyed having many options when running the ball, especially when his quarterback has the speed necessary to accomplish the read-option. Mike Vick has shown off his speed and athleticism, but it is unclear whether or not Chip Kelly wishes to keep him. Maybe the Eagles move up to draft Smith, but the offensive line is struggling as well. Enter Luke Joeckel.

5. Detroit Lions: LB Jarvis Jones: Detroit's disappointing 2012 season, to the relief of Lions fans everywhere, ended last December, so they now have the opportunity to rebuild. Jarvis Jones is one of the most skilled defenders in this year's draft class, and may be able to help Detroit's pass rush.

6. Cleveland Browns: Dee Milliner: Cleveland has shown signs of improvement since their 2011 season thanks to rookies Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson. However, the Cleveland defense could use a shut down cornerback that may be able to stop an opposing team's number one wide receiver (Dez Bryant caught 12 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland).

 7. Arizona Cardinals: QB Matt Barkley: Originally the Heisman favorite, Matt Barkley disappointed many with his play throughout the 2012 season. However, scouts are still impressed with his leadership and throwing abilities, the intangibles Arizona needs desperately at quarterback.

8. Buffalo Bills: QB Ryan Nassib: With many speculating whether or not quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be playing in Buffalo next season, a quarterback is what the Bills ought to acquire in the upcoming draft. Seven coaches who at some point in their careers coached in Syracuse now coach for Buffalo, meaning Ryan Nassib out of Syracuse may be preferred over Ryan Wilson.

9. New York Jets: DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo: The New York Jets were the punchlines of many jokes in 2012 for their embarrassing offense and un-intimidating defense. New York's pass rush ranked 25th in the league, so Rex Ryan will be looking for a speedy pass rusher like Barkevious Mingo out of LSU.

10. Tennessee Titans: DE Bjoern Werner: Some have defensive end Bjoern Werner making an appearance all the way at number two in certain mock drafts, but the FSU defender will eventually fall to the Tennessee Titans, who are looking to create a more dominant pass rush.
