    1. Houston Texans;DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

    Also has the run of QBs going early:

    4. Minnesota Vikings;QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville
    5. Jacksonville Jaguars;QB Derek Carr, Fresno State
    6. Cleveland Browns;QB Blake Bortles, Central Florida
    7. Oakland Raiders;QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M


    Which would leave Tajh Boyd sitting there at 33 for us. Of course this mock has no projected trades.

    just saw ESPN Rob Rang review that Boyd is falling and needs excellent showing in bowl & if selected also the senior bowl to move into top 100. Critique is he can make all throws but poor decisions especially if he gets tapped couple times. Of note a early season favorite of mine is moving back up. David Fales percentage is only 64 % his game against Fresno St and Derek Carr was 37/45 547 yds 82 %, 12.16 avg 6 TDs no INTS for rating of 228.2. Of course Fresno's defense is terrible.

    Fales really looked good in that game, but like you said, no defense

    Miller writes for bleacher report. BR requires no journalistic qualities whatsoever, more important BR seeks no redeeming qualities. BR is what it's name suggest, it's opinions from people who sit in the bleachers. BR is the opposite of the Best and the Brightest. Let me explain it this way, I have been approached twice to write for BR. :)

    Considering Bleacher is a part of CNN and Turner Broadcasting System, maybe you should have taken that chance and not become a keyboard warrior on a message forum.

    Wow, what a fall. I've heard whispers that he can be intimidated.

    Maybe BR is why CNN has been setting all time LOW ratings and viewership?

    My first thoughts were, "Great...... we can take Clowney & still have our choice of Boyd or Mettenberger in the second."


    Then I googled our second round pick....... looks like a BabyWatt

    Didn't see much in the way of pass rush moves, just ran around guys kinda like what Brooks Reed did in college. Seems like a good athlete though and good play diagnosis.

    This is the year to load up on WRs. 19 underclassmen WRs declared so far.

    8 WRs in the 1st would be unprecedented. Last year the most popular position in the 1st round was OT with 5. CB, DT and DE tied with 4.
