1. player. 48. Despite recent rumblings that Marcus Mariota might be the pick at #1, I still think Winston will be the pick here. The Buccaneers hopefully get their QB of the future with this pick.. Quarterback. Florida State. Jameis Winston

Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 2. player. 35. The Titans are in prime position to trade down if someone wants to move up for Marcus Mariota. Or they could choose to select him for themsevles. Since no trades in this mock, Mariota goes here.. Quarterback

player. 52. Jacksonville will look to secure one of the best pass rushers in the draft after also considering the left takle position. They could have the pick of the litter when they select at #3 overall.. Linebacker. Florida. Dante Fowler Jr.. 3

4. player. 28. I still think that Oakland will go for a weapon for Derek Carr with their first pick and Kevin White provides a big target for him. Amari Cooper could be the pick too, but White is a better fit in my opinion.. Wide Receiver. West Virginia. Kevin White

Oct 18, 2014; Gainesville, FL, USA; Missouri Tigers defensive lineman Shane Ray (56) rushes against the Florida Gators during the second half at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Missouri Tigers defeated the Florida Gators 42-13. Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Shane Ray. 6. player. 30. The Jets need a pass rusher after taking care of their needs at cornerback in free agency. Ray is a top 5 talent and a great value that will pay dividends for the team in the future.. Defensive End. Missouri

I really considered Amari Cooper for this spot, but saw Williams as too good of a value at this point. The Bears should be able to use him as a DE in their new 3-4 defense.. Defensive Tackle. Southern California. Leonard Williams. 7. player. 57

44. They brought in some players that they hoped could help their pass rush problem, but should instead look to fix the problem after Gregory falls into their laps.. Defensive End. Nebraska. Randy Gregory. 8. player

Brandon Scherff. 9. player. 31. There’s no hiding that the Giants are in desperate need of help on the offensive line and a player like Brandon Scherff could help keep Eli Manning on his feet instead of on his back.. Offensive Tackle. Iowa

Amari Cooper. 10. player. 51. The Rams have a new quarterback in Nick Foles, so now they’ll get him some weapons to work with. Cooper is the most polished of the WRs in this draft and cn help right away.. Wide Receiver. Alabama

Next: Picks 11-20
