1. Houston Texans (2-14) – Jadeveon Clowney, Defensive End, South Carolina: Nothing changes here. Clowney showed during the combine that he is the most talented player in this year’s draft. Houston has to draft Clowney with the No. 1 overall selection this year.

2. St. Louis Rams (7-9) via trade from Washington Redskins – Greg Robinson, Offensive Tackle, Auburn: Still no change. After Robinson’s performances during the combine, analysts were comparing the mauling tackle to Hall of Famer Larry Allen.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-12) – Johnny Manziel, Quarterback, Texas A&M: This is where things change a little bit… The Jaguars need a flashy pick in order to keep this franchise in Jacksonville. Manziel may not be the best quarterback available, but he’s certainly the most flashy one.

4. Cleveland Browns (4-12) – Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville: The Browns are an offensive weapon or two from competing in the AFC North. Bridgewater can provide them with some stability at the quarterback position.

5. Oakland Raiders (4-12) – Sammy Watkins, Wide Receiver, Clemson:  After the combine, it’s clear that Watkins is the most dynamic offensive player in the draft and could be the perfect fit for Oakland. The more playmakers the Raiders can provide  for quarterback Terrelle Pryor the better.

6. Atlanta Falcons (4-12) – Khalil Mack, Outside Linebacker, Buffalo

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12) – Anthony Barr, Outside Linebacker, UCLA

8. Minnesota Vikings (5-10-1) – Blake Bortles, Quarterback, Central Florida

Watch for Will Sutton to creep into the first round.
