It's that time again, time for everyone to become an expert when it comes to the draft.
It's just a big guessing game and most of the time no one has any clue where people are going. But it's still fun to make predictions.
We already know who the first two picks are going to be, but then it gets pretty interesting.
So let's get right to it.
It's already been announced, but everyone knew it was going to be him six months ago.
Washington gave up a lot to make sure it could get RGIII, but it's understandable since it's been years since they've had a franchise QB.
Word is that Minnesota really wants to trade out of this pick, but it may have a hard time getting a buyer. The Vikings could go Matt Kalil or Justin Blackmon here. But Claiborne is a game-changer and Minnesota's secondary was awful last year.
This might be a little high for Kuechly, but the guy is a machine and could be an immediate leader for the young Tampa D.
Blaine Gabbert looked pretty awful last year, but it wasn't entirely his fault. He really had no one to throw to.
For how good he is, Blackmon isn't getting as much credit as he deserves. The Jaguars haven't had a good WR in years. This is the pick they should make.
Miami failed in its campaign to get a QB in the offseason. Tannehill is risky and a bit of a project, but the skill-set is there. If the Dolphins can be patient with him, it could really pay off.
Carolina needs a defensive tackle and Cox seems to be a sure thing. That's about as perfect a a situation as you can get.
Buffalo is a strange team. The Bills are stuck between falling apart and taking the next step. If they are going to go with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, they need to get him better protection. Reiff should be the pick, unless Kalil falls this far.
It's not certain that Brockers can be a true nose tackle, but he has the potential to really stuff up the middle for KC.
Ingram has fallen a bit, but he could be a steal this late. The Seahawks need a pass-rusher off the edge. Ingram may be the best in the draft.
People have compared him to Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald, but he doesn't have their speed. He ut he can very good, however. Fitzgerald will need to to take pressure off him.
The Cowboys couldn't stop the pass last year, and Gilmore has really been moving up the draft board. In fact, don't be surprised if he goes earlier than this pick.
There are talks of Philly moving up to get a defensive tackle. But if the Eagles stay put, McClellin would be a good fit. The Eagles linebackers were pretty bad last year. They traded for Demeco Ryans to put on the inside, McClellin would be a good complement on the outside.
Cincy had a bunch of injuries in the secondary and really felt it. Leon Hall should come back, but strong depth would really help.
The Chargers have a few needs. Barron is the best safety in the draft and would form a dynamic duo with Eric Weddle.
Coples has really dropped, but Chicago could use someone on the other side of Julius Peppers. Coples' upside is too great to pass up.
The Titans have let a lot of good defensive players leave in the past couple years. I'm not sure I know their plan. But they need help on the defensive line, so Jones makes sense.
I could see them taking DeCastro with their earlier pick and Dre Kirkpatrick here. But either way, I think these are the two best picks for them.
Not sure if the Browns are ready to give up on Colt McCoy yet, but if they aren't, they are going to need to get him some help. Greg Little looked decent last year. If they added Wright with Trent Richardson, they could have a good core of young offensive players.
The guy had a great combine but never showed a lot in college. The Steelers could take a risk here. Poe definitely has potential and wouldn't necessarily have to start right away.
Andre Johnson has deserved a No. 2 receiver for so long. The Texans should realize this by now, especially since they had no one to take over for him when he went down with an injury.
The Patriots couldn't stop the pass for the life of them. Drafting anyone in the secondary would help. Harrison provides them with skill and toughness.
The Packers really need someone to help Clay Matthews. He just wasn't the same player because everyone focused on him. They could also go DE here.
Baltimore has been known to draft the best available player. The Ravens should be thrilled if Hightower falls to them. He is a steal here. The only reason he wouldn't go higher is because teams have bigger needs.
This could be a bit of a reach, but San Francisco doesn't have a ton of needs. Zeitler would solidify a strong offensive line.
The Patriots defense really struggled. They need help in the secondary. But one thing that would help would be better pressure up front. Perry could help to provide that.
The offensive line was decent last year but could use some depth. Adams is probably the best OT at this point. Jonathan Martin is a possibility as well.
