Mock draft 2.0: Jags fill QB need with Manziel
By Daniel Jeremiah
1 HOU JADEVEON CLOWNEY DESOUTH CAROLINA
Blake Bortles fits the Bill O'Brien quarterback profile but passing on Clowney will prove to be difficult.
2 STL GREG ROBINSON OTAUBURN
Robinson will provide a physical presence in the run game and he has the tools to be a dominant pass protector.
3 JAC JOHNNY MANZIEL QBTEXAS A&M
The Jaguars could take a pass rusher or WR Sammy Watkins, but Manziel’s playmaking ability would provide a much-needed spark for their offense.
4 CLE TEDDY BRIDGEWATER QBLOUISVILLE
The Browns have been searching for a franchise quarterback for more than a decade and Bridgewater’s combination of accuracy, poise and toughness is very appealing.
5 OAK BLAKE BORTLES QBCENTRAL FLORIDA
The Raiders could go in several different directions, but they need a long-term solution at quarterback.
6 ATL KHALIL MACK OLBBUFFALO
The Falcons’ pass rush needs to be upgraded, and Mack is the second-best edge rusher in the draft.
7 TB ANTHONY BARR OLBUCLA
Barr could play linebacker in the Bucs’ base defense and put his hand on the ground in passing situations.
8 MIN C.J. MOSLEY OLBALABAMA
If the top three quarterbacks are off the board, Mosley would be a great fit in Mike Zimmer’s defense.
9 BUF SAMMY WATKINS WRCLEMSON
In this scenario, the Bills couldn’t pass up the most dynamic offensive player in the draft.
10 DET JUSTIN GILBERT CBOKLAHOMA ST.
The Lions have some talented young cornerbacks, but Gilbert is on another level and he would match up well with the bigger wideouts in the NFC North.
11 TEN JAKE MATTHEWS OTTEXAS A&M
Matthews would be an upgrade over veteran right tackle David Stewart and he could eventually replace Michael Roos on the left side.
12 NYG TAYLOR LEWAN OTMICHIGAN
The Giants could look at cornerback or wide receiver with this pick, but they have a long track record of selecting linemen in the first round.
13 STL MIKE EVANS WRTEXAS A&M
Adding Robinson and Evans would give the Rams a physical offense to pair with one of the best young defenses in the NFL.
14 CHI TIMMY JERNIGAN DTFLORIDA ST.
The Bears have a desperate need at the safety position, but Jernigan is too good to pass up at this point in the draft.
