Default CBS Sports 2014 Mocks -- Dane Brugler/Rob Rang

Dane Brugler Mock

Quote:
1. HOUSTON TEXANS

(2-14) Blake Bortles, QB, UCF: Losing the final 14 games of last season, the Texans deserve this top spot. But despite the forgettable season, Houston isn't a complete re-build and new head coach Bill O'Brien inherits a roster that only needs a few tweaks. If the Texans keep this pick, it would be a surprise if they went in any other direction but quarterback and while Teddy Bridgewater seems to be the favorite, don't count out Bortles here.

2. ST. LOUIS RAMS (FROM WASHINGTON)

(7-9) Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: This would be a tough pill to swallow for the Redskins, who have earned a top-five pick so far this season, but traded this pick to the Rams two years ago in the Robert Griffin deal. Expect the Rams to offer up this pick for ransom, similar to two years ago, but if they keep it, GM Les Snead and his staff have the luxury of going best player available, which is the Clowney.

3. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

(4-12) Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The Jaguars played themselves out of the first overall pick by winning a few games down the stretch, but imagine their luck if Bridgewater is still on the board when they pick at three. This new regime needs to identify who the quarterback of the future will be to lead Jacksonville out of mediocrity.

4. CLEVELAND BROWNS

(4-12) Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M: Brandon Weeden won't be back in Cleveland, Jason Campbell is a stopgap and while Brian Hoyer is still in the team's long-term plans, he's coming off an ACL injury and Cleveland needs to add a young arm to the mix. Manziel will certainly create colorful discussions between now and May, not only on Twitter and your local bar, but also scouting war rooms around the league. He will be an option for the Browns here.

5. OAKLAND RAIDERS

(4-12) Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson: The Raiders need upgrades at several positions, most importantly quarterback. But they might be left in a spot where they guy they want isn't left on the board. If that's the case, Watkins would be a nice consolation prize.

1. HOUSTON TEXANS

(2-14) Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: Local star Johnny Manziel is the more dynamic athlete. Central Florida's Blake Bortles may possess an even higher upside and new Texans' head coach Bill O'Brien was quite complimentary of him after he and the Nittany Lions faced UCF in September. But due to his accuracy, underrated athleticism and experience in a pro-style scheme, Bridgewater appears to be the best fit in O'Brien's offense. With the immediate results expected in today's NFL, adding the draft's most consistent and pro-ready quarterback to a roster already teeming with talent seems too logical not to occur.

2. ST. LOUIS RAMS (FROM WASHINGTON)

(7-9) Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: Owners of this lofty pick due to the Robert Griffin III trade, the Rams are in a terrific position to improve their team immediately or for the future. The Rams already boast one of the league's top defensive end tandems in Robert Quinn and Chris Long but that may not stop them from adding the draft's most talented player in Clowney or trading the rights to this pick to whichever team offered the greatest bounty to take South Carolina's superstar or one of the quarterbacks.

3. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

(4-12) Blake Bortles, QB, UCF: The Jaguars may have the least talented roster in the NFL but the team played hard under head coach Gus Bradley and were a respectable 3-5 on the road. Improving at home could get a kick-start with the selection of Bortles, a local standout and prototypically-built pocket passer whose consistent improvement has his stock skyrocketing.

4. CLEVELAND BROWNS

(4-12) Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn: Regardless of the identity of Cleveland's next head coach, the Browns are expected to draft a quarterback with this pick. A passionate fan base might love the idea of Johnny Manziel, but the gusts and grass of FirstEnergy Field may not be the best fit for a quarterback so reliant on his mobility and lacking elite size or arm strength. Otherwise, pairing the most dominant run blocker in the draft in Robinson with All Pro left tackle Joe Thomas could give the Browns the bookend tackles to make a quarterback drafted later likelier to enjoy success.

5. OAKLAND RAIDERS

(4-12) Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M: With general manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen each on the hot seat, big changes could be coming in Oakland. Regardless of who's in charge, an upgrade at quarterback is necessary. The late Al Davis would have loved Manziel's magical playmaking ability and considering this club's lack of identity on offense, no team is more in need of a lightning rod like Johnny Football.

Pete Prisco Mock Draft No. 1

Quote:
1. Houston Texans -- Central Florida QB Blake Bortles: I know there will be a push for Johnny Manziel, but Bill O'Brien seems to be a pocket* passer guy.

2. St. Louis Rams (From Washington) -- Texas A&M T Jake Matthews: I know some think Greg Robinson has moved ahead of him, but this is the safe, sure choice.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars -- South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney: This is a premier pass rusher for a team that needs one in the worst way.

4. Cleveland Browns ** Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel : This would seem to be a natural fit. They need a quarterback in the worst way.

5. Oakland Raiders -- Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater: They finally get the passer they've been looking to get for years.

6. Atlanta Falcons -- Auburn T Greg Robinson: They have to get help for Matt Ryan up front. He took way too many shots last season.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Clemson WR Sammy Watkins: Vincent Jackson isn't a kid, and they lack the big-*time speed outside. Could go for a pass rusher.

8. Minnesota Vikings -- Buffalo OLB Khalil Mack: New coach Mike Zimmer has a big task in trying to rebuild that defense. He needs to get faster.

9. Buffalo Bills -- Alabama LB C.J. Mosley: They need speed next to Kiko Alonso. Mosley will be a 10*-year starter.

10. Detroit Lions ** Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard: They go for the in-state product to help upgrade a secondary that needs it in the worst way.

11. Tennessee Titans -- USC WR Marqise Lee: They need a deep threat to go with Kendall Wright. Oh, they also might need a quarterback. But who?

12. New York Giants -- UCLA OLB Anthony Barr: They have little speed at linebacker, and it shows. Yes, they need offensive line help but they can wait on that.

13. St. Louis Rams -- Texas A&M WR Mike Evans: They have fast, smaller guys. They need a bigger receiver like Evans (6-foot-5, 225 pounds) to complement them.

14. Chicago Bears -- Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton*-Dix: Their secondary was bad in 2013. They need help on the back end.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Notre Dame DT Louis Nix: He is a perfect fit in their defense. They have to get better inside.

16. Baltimore Ravens -- Alabama T Cyrus Kouandjio: Both of Baltimore's tackles are unrestricted free agents. They'll lose at least one, maybe both.

17. Dallas Cowboys -- Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan: They could lose Jason Hatcher and they need help inside anyway. Did you see who they played there with some last season?

18. New York Jets -- North Carolina TE Eric Ebron: They have to get some help for the passing game. This kid has the look of a future star.

19. Miami Dolphins -- Notre Dame G-T Zack Martin: Miami has to improve that offensive line. Martin showed at the Senior Bowl he can play outside and inside.

20. Arizona Cardinals -- Michigan T Taylor Lewan: They have to get better at left tackle. Local kid who could step in and play right away.

21. Green Bay Packers -- Minnesota DT-DE Ra'Shede Hageman: The Packers have three defensive linemen scheduled to become free agents. They need to find a potential replacement.

22. Philadelphia Eagles -- Louisville S Calvin Pryor: They had big problems on the back end last season. Pryor would start right away.

23. Kansas City Chiefs -- LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr.: They have to get somebody to emerge opposite Dwayne Bowe. Beckham Jr. was a polished player for the Tigers.

24. Cincinnati Bengals -- Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert: With Leon Hall coming off an Achilles' tendon injury, Cincinnati must get younger at corner.

25. San Diego Chargers -- Florida CB Marcus Roberson: They had big problems outside last season, so they have to try and upgrade in a division where you face Peyton Manning twice.

26. Cleveland Browns (From Indianapolis) -- Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin: Cleveland needs a weapon outside to go with Josh Gordon. Benjamin would give them a huge complementary target.

27. New Orleans Saints -- Virginia OT Morgan Moses: Right tackle Zach Strief is an unrestricted free agent. If the Saints can't get him re*signed, this makes sense. If Strief re-signs, they could draft a receiver or pass rusher.

28. Carolina Panthers -- TCU CB Jason Verrett: They got by with so*-so corner play last season. It's time they upgraded it. The pass rush can't cover it up forever.

29. New England Patriots -- Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro: With Rob Gronkowski coming off another injury and Aaron Hernandez in jail, they need another weapon in the middle of the field. They love double-*tight looks for when Gronk does come back.

30. San Francisco 49ers -- Ohio State CB Bradley Roby: He is a talented corner with good size. Doesn't everybody want that now?

31. Denver Broncos -- Auburn DE Dee Ford: With Von Miller coming off an injury and Shaun Phillips getting up in age, adding another pass rusher makes sense.

32. Seattle Seahawks -- Tennessee G-T Antonio Richardson: They had trouble up front on the line this season and Breno Giacomini is a free agent.

That mock makes a lot of sense.

Can live with Bortles, not my 1st choice but can live with it.

NFL MOCK DRAFT - 2/26/2014
ROB RANG
Quote:
1. HOUSTON TEXANS
(2-14) Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: Quarterback is the logical starting point for the Texans but this class has unique depth at the position, allowing head coach Bill O'Brien to wait until the second or even third round. Clowney - who demonstrated the athleticism at the Combine to easily transition to a pass rushing linebacker in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's scheme -- would provide an immediate impact opposite superstar J.J. Watt, likely spurring a quick return to the playoffs for a club just one year removed from earning the AFC's top seed.

Notice Rang has Khalil Mack going at #6.

Mack made a very good showing at the Senior Bowl and again at Indy and as a result has moved up the boards. I'm liking him at SS OLB, over Clowney.

Mack brings pass defense, run support and pass rush. Clowney may be the better athlete, but Mack is a better fit for the team. I've read that OB likes to move big OLB's into the ILB position and Mack would fit this role very well, also.
