1. Jadaveon Clowney - DE - S. Carolina
TRADE - Let's assume the Falcons swing for the fences this year and trade their first, second and next year's first round pick to move up 5 spots and take Clowney. He'll instantly boost a mediocre defense and make Atlanta a contender again in 2014. The Texans get extra picks to fill more holes.
4. Mike Evans - WR - Texas A&M
TRADE - Mike Evans = Julio Jones. A few years ago the Bengals took A.J. Green early in the draft leaving Julio Jones as the next top-tier WR on the board. This year the Rams take Watkins at #2 and the Bucs feel the need to trade up in front of Oakland to nab the second best WR.
7. Justin Gilbert - CB - OkLA. State
TRADE - The Browns move down a few spots from #4, pick up an additional 3rd round pick this year and 4th next year and turn around and take the top CB in the draft in Gilbert. I could argue that CB is the Browns biggest need and Gilbert is an instant starter and huge upgrade from Buster Skrine who is best suited to be a slot, nickel corner. (If this were me - I'm taking Johnny Football!)
8. Johnny Manziel - QB - Texas A&M
The Vikings can't really start the year with Christian Ponder or Matt Cassel behind center can they? Really? They take the big leap here that the first 7 teams weren't willing to take and get Johnny Football. Can he bring them the magic that Favre brought them for a year?
9. Jake Matthews - T - Texas A&M
The Bills haven't had a solid O-Line in a long time and they finally shore up the LT spot with Matthews here. I think Matthews is the best O-Linemen in the draft and is a steal here at #9. My friends who are Bills fans won't be excited about this pick, but it fills a giant need.
26. Chris Borland - LB - Wisconsin
I know teams say they are taking the best player on their board, but the Browns need another MLB next to Carlos Dansby and I love Chris Borland from Wisconsin and I think Ray Farmer, Mike Pettine and company will too. With a deep WR class they'll look there in Round 3 and likely take a QB at the top of Round 2.
