With three months to go it’s tough to determine what will happen. The quarterbacks in this year’s draft could change the whole landscape, especially if the Chiefs decide to take one or not. There may be a team that trades back into the mid-to-late first round, so please keep that in mind since I can’t predict a trade.
Here is the post Senior Bowl mock draft:
1. Kansas City Chiefs – Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Andy Reid may want his franchise QB here, but the team could decide to trade back into the first round to get him.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars – Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
The Jaguars need to improve their pass rush and Werner could contribute from day one.
3. Oakland Raiders – Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
The Raiders need to find their new franchise QB and Smith could be a possibility.
4. Philadelphia Eagles – Eric Fisher, OT Central Michigan
Fisher will soar up draft boards and could challenge Joeckel for the first OT taken.
5. Detroit Lions – Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
The Lions don’t have a glaring need on defense but they’ll settle for Milliner to improve the secondary.
6. Cleveland Browns – Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
Jordan may be a reach at six, but the Browns need to stock up on 3-4 pass rushers.
7. Arizona Cardinals – Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
If the Cardinals opt to pass on taking a QB, they could go with the best defensive player available.
8. Buffalo Bills – Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California
It’s unlikely that new coach Doug Marrone wants Ryan Fitzpatrick long-term, making Barkley the pick.
9. New York Jets – Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
The Jets need to move on from the Sanchez/Tebow era and Tyler Wilson is capable of starting in week one.
10. Tennessee Titans – Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
Improving the defense is key for the Titans and Floyd is a young (20), versatile athlete with big time talent.
11. San Diego Chargers – Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
The Chargers need to protect Phillip Rivers, making Johnson an ideal pick.
12. Miami Dolphins – Keenan Allen, WR, California
If the Dolphins don’t sign a top free agent wide receiver, they’ll have to take one with this pick.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
The Bucs have a need at cornerback, but they may opt to take Moore instead.
14. Carolina Panthers – Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
The Panthers need DT help and Richardson will contribute as a pass rusher up the middle.
15. New Orleans Saints – Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU
Switching to a 3-4 will result in the Saints taking a pass rusher.
16. St. Louis Rams – Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
The Rams need to protect Sam Bradford and that starts with taking the best offensive lineman available.
