Rd. 1 = Blake Bortles, QB, UCF (replaces Schaub)

My reason for taking Bortles is because of the same high priority that Belichick and Walsh use to select their QBs, ability to win and to win in the 4th quarter with the last possession and game winning drives. When it comes to last possession and game winning drives nobody did it better, as well or as often as Bortles (Manziel comes close). The QB who wants the ball in his hands at the end of the game and is able to deliver in almost every circumstance is usually much more successful than those who don't or can't.

Bortles was always cool, calm, collected and delivered in each of his last possession and game winning drives. In judging the improvement from the last year to this year no one exceeded Bortles leap. Bortles coach and coordinator have said that they have enough confidence in Blake because he has shown the intelligence to let him make his own reads and calls and I am not sure any other college QB today has those options available.

RD 2 - Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU (replaces Mitchell)

RD 3 – Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas (replaces Ninja)

RD 4 – CJ Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa (replaces Graham)

RD 4 (Comp/Barwin) – Reid Caraun, DT, Princeton (gives Texans a 2nd DT for the 4-3)

RD 5 - Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU (replaces Tate)

RD 6 - Ronald Powell, OLB, Florida (fills a hole)

RD 6 (Comp/Quin) - Greg Blair, ILB Cincinnati (replaces Sharpton/Mays)

RD 7 – Brandon Dixon, CB, Northwest Missouri State
