1. St. Louis Rams, Jimmy Clausen (QB, Notre Dame)
No one had ever heard of the Rams' current quarterback before the season started, and it's time to bring a real quarterback into St. Louis.
2. Detroit Lions, Ndamukong Suh (DT, Nebraska)
Any team would be immediately better with Suh on their defense, and it looks like the Lions will be that team.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Gerald McCoy (DT, Oklahoma)
The Buccaneers' defensive line is far from what it was when they won the Super Bowl earlier in the decade, but Gerald McCoy just might turn that around.
4. Washington Redskins, Russell Okung (OT, Oklahoma State)
The Redskins' line weakened dramatically after the loss of Chris Samuels, but look for Okung to be a star replacement.
5. Kansas City Chiefs, Bruce Campbell (OT, Maryland)
Matt Cassell needs to be protected after all the money the Chiefs spent on him, and there are few better than Bruce Campbell.
6. Seattle Seahawks, Anthony Davis (OT, Rutgers)
He is no Walter Jones, but Anthony Davis has the size and strength to bring some pride back to the Seahawks' line.
7. Cleveland Browns, Eric Berry (FS, Tennessee)
Eric Berry is one of the most athletic prospects of the decade, and the Browns will be savoring this pick for years.
8. Oakland Raiders, Taylor Mays (SS, USC)
Mays is too fast and too athletic for Al Davis and the Raiders' franchise to even consider passing on.
9. Buffalo Bills, Sam Bradford (QB, Oklahoma)
If it wasn't for Bradford's health issues this season, he would have been a lock at No. 1.
10. Denver Broncos, Carlos Dunlap (DE, Florida)
Dunlap is a fast end with a great build who would be the force needed on the Broncos' defensive line.
11. Jacksonville Jaguars, Derrick Morgan (DE, Georgia Tech)
If the Jaguars stick to the 3-4, they will need a powerful lineman like Derrick Morgan who can take care of business.
12. Miami Dolphins, Dez Bryant (WR, Oklahoma State)
I can't see the Dolphins passing on Dez Bryant because he would look perfect in their offense.
13. San Francisco 49ers, Joe Haden (CB, Florida)
The 49ers have a horrid secondary, and Joe Haden is, without question, the smartest choice here.
14. Seattle Seahawks (f/Den), C.J. Spiller (RB, Clemson)
Spiller will be an immediate star in the NFL and could help the Seahawks get back on top of their division if the defense stays intact.
15. New York Giants, Brian Price (DT, UCLA)
The Giants' defense could not stop the run or the pass when it mattered last season, but Price would be a determined game-changer on the Giants.
16. Tennessee Titans, Rolando McClain (MLB, Alabama)
The Titans could use a smart defender like McClain who is very consistent and has high awareness.
17. San Francisco 49ers (f/Car), Trent Williams (OT, Oklahoma)
There is no denying Trent Williams' ability, and the 49ers would like someone like him to improve their offensive opportunities.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Iupati (G, Idaho)
Iupati would help make the Steelers' offense more two-dimensional and would be their best lineman as soon as he steps in.
19. Atlanta Falcons, Jason Pierre-Paul (DE, South Florida)
The Falcons could not generate any pass rush last season, and there are few better at it than Jason Pierre-Paul.
20. Houston Texans, Earl Thomas (SS, Texas)
Thomas is an eligible sophomore who recorded some amazing stats while playing for the Longhorns.
21. New York Jets, Terrence Cody (NT, Alabama)
New York needs to make this pick because even if Kris Jenkins comes back next season, he is not the long-term solution for the Jets.
22. Baltimore Ravens, Golden Tate (WR, Notre Dame)
The Ravens got poor play from their receivers this season, but Golden Tate would give Joe Flacco a dangerous weapon to work with.
23. Arizona Cardinals, Jermaine Gresham (TE, Oklahoma)
Gresham is a skinnier, more athletic version of Vernon Davis and has proven to be a dynamic threat when he is healthy.
24. Cincinnati Bengals, Everson Griffen (DE, USC)
Griffen is a great fit for the Bengals because he has the size and speed to play end in the 3-4 or 4-3.
25. New England Patriots, Brandon Spikes (MLB, Florida)
The Patriots have been craving a middle linebacker like Spikes to play next to star Jerod Mayo for some time now, and it looks like their dream will come true.
26. Green Bay Packers, Bryan Bulaga (OT, Iowa)
The Packers will need to find a quality replacement for Chad Clifton if he decides to throw in the towel at the end of the season.
27. Philadelphia Eagles, Navarro Bowman (OLB, Penn State)
Bowman is a hard-hitting linebacker who has proven that he can be a stud in an NFL uniform.
28. Dallas Cowboys, Arrelious Benn (WR, Illinois)
Giving Tony Romo another receiver to work with would mean trouble for opposing defenses.
29. Minnesota Vikings, Maurkice Pouncey (C, Florida)
The Vikings did not get good play this year aside from Steve Hutchinson, so drafting Pouncey would definitely fill a void.
30. San Diego Chargers, Dan Williams (NT, Tennessee)
Williams is a beast who offensive line's had a very hard time containing throughout the season.
31. New Orleans Saints, Jonathan Dwyer (RB, Georgia Tech)
Pierre Thomas is good, but every team covets those special fast back and powerful backs, and the Saints would have that with Dwyer and Reggie Bush.
32. Indianapolis Colts, Jerry Hughes (DE, TCU)
Hughes can play defensive end or outside linebacker and would add depth to the Colts' defense.
