1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Teddy Bridgewater, QB

A guaranteed lock. Bridgewater is a perfect fit for a team desperately needing a franchise quarterback.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jadeveon Clowney, DE

Glennon isn't playing that bad but we will see what he is made of now that their star running back Doug Martin is gone for the year. That being said, The Buccaneers will happily take Clowney to vastly improve their weak defensive line.

3. New York Giants - Anthony Barr, OLB

Barr not only fills a huge hole at linebacker but he gives the Giants another defensive stud that they can be a center piece of their defense for years to come.

4. Minnesota Vikings - Marcus Mariota, QB

He provides them with an accurate passer who can make all the big time throws and someone who is a legit threat when using his legs. The Vikings would love to have a young play maker like Mariota to lead their team.

5. Houston Texans - Johnny Manziel, QB

Schaub clearly isn't your guy so why not take the best quarterback available and that's Manziel. Say what you want about his personal problems, The guy is a proven play maker who could easily take this team to the next level.

6. Oakland Raiders - Jake Matthews, OT

Pryor is their guy and they could easily take a receiver with this pick but I think they will be better off improving their offensive line and providing Pryor with some much needed protection and allow him to do what he does best - Make plays and win games.

7. St. Louis Rams - Mike Evans, WR

The Rams did a good job getting Austin last year at receiver and now they use their first of two first round picks to take another one. Evans is a big guy at 6'5 and can be a huge play maker for them.

8. Pittsburgh Steelers - Taylor Lewan, OT

Seems like the Steelers are always dealing with offensive line issues, Mostly due to injuries and poor playing. Lewan is right up there with Matthews when it comes to talent and would be a huge help for the Steelers' struggling offensive line.

9. Atlanta Falcons - Louis Nix, DT

Nix provides them with a legit run stopper and an anchor on their defensive line for years to come.

10. Tennessee Titans - C.J. Mosley, ILB

Mosley is a true talent and is well worth a top 10 pick, Especially if you have a need for a linebacker like the Titans.

@roulettethedog: It's very possible if he maintains a clean record up to the draft and other things (combine, interviews, post-season evaluations) break his way.

RevanBITW, There are mock drafts during preseason (by sites like Yahoo and ESPN) and for every week of the regular season. I do it every other week.

roulettethedog, Yes he has personal problems but how can you deny that Manziel isn't worth a top 5/10 pick? The guy has talent and has consistently performed well against high level competition. Do not be surprised to see him go that high, Especially with a good chunk of teams in the top 10 (Jaguars, Buccaneers, Vikings, Texans, and Browns) need a quarterback.

@69ingChimpmunks:

Manzel will not be by passed by my Vikings is what I mean.
