Predicting First 8 Picks

I think Falcons would draft Shane Ray if draft shakes out that way, although I personally think Gregory might end up being the better NFL player, Ray fits the positional profile without the baggage

Not into making these type of predictions but I'm not sold on Tennessee giving up on mettenberger after 6 games. They had zero playmakers around him. I think they will trade down a few spots and get a wr. Chicago has been rumored to be interested in trading up for mariotta and willing to rid themselves of cutler so who knows. Tampa of course takes a qb. Pass rushers could slide

1. J. Winston - Tampa Bay. The Bucs need to start from scratch.

2. M. Mariotta - San Diego. The Chargers also see the opportunity to re-set. Jax gets Rivers and give Metz time to develop.

3. D. Fowler - Jacksonville. Bradley gets his new LEO. It doesn't hurt that the local kid stays home.

4. L. Williams - Oakland. The Raiders draft the local kid and re-establish their nastiness. Their D is looking good.

5. V. Beasley - Washington. DC could use an OL, but select a talented pass rusher. They will find a good OL in the second round.

6. A. Cooper - NYJ The J-E-T-S add a future star WR. The big apple gets a peach of a weapon.

7. K. White - Miami. The Dolphins have been rumored to covet the talented Mr. White.

8. A. Dupree - Atlanta

The Falcons should sprint to the podium to take Randy Gregory, but the filter is alive and well. No trade down partners materialize. The FO decides to gamble on greatness. They draft a player that is raw, but has the tools to become a star LEO.

You got #8 wrong...

1. Winston: Best QB prospect. I think he can be managed at the pro level.

2. Mariota: It might not be TEN picking him, but he will go #2

3. Fowler: For a while I thought this should be Williams, but I think JAX goes edge rusher now.

4. Cooper: This pick will be a WR. Get the young QB a weapon on the outside.

5. Williams: I think the Redskins want an edge rusher, but Williams is #1 prospect

6. Beasley: Best pass rusher in the draft goes to a team with that need

7. White: It might not be the Bears, but this pick goes as a WR

8. Ray: Falcons wanted Beasley, but Ray is quite the player at #8 (trade down in this scenario has a high possibility, but if 2 WRs are off the board, could be tough).

EDIT: Probably now Dupree with Ray news about foot surgery....many players are never the same after turf toe / foot injury issues...this is slightly worrisome...

No Trades, just picks, of course this is just speculation.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars- Dante Fowler Jr.

4. Oakland Raiders- Kevin White

5. Washington Redskins- Vic Beasley

6. New York Jets- Marcus Mariota

7. Chicago Bears- Danny Shelton/Amari Cooper

8. Atlanta Falcons-Shane Ray

Cutler back in TEN? That could be interesting QB battle in camp...

If Williams falls to four and the Raiders don't take him, they're fools. Pairing him with Mack would make for a NASTY front.

Then again, that's the smart, forward thinking move, so they probably won't do it. Heh

I've been saying the same about Oakland passing on a top wr. They need a star on that offense

Bucs - Winston

Titans - Marriota

Jags - Fowler

Raiders - Williams

Redskins - Beasley

Jets - Cooper

Bears - White

Falcons - Ray

Of course this is moot because there will be at least one trade thats going to change the draft order.

This is the exact order I have on my NFL.com mock..so, I guess I agree w you a little

I think IF Tennessee takes Mariota, they'll trade him that same night
