1. Houston Texans
Jadeveon Clowney

The Texans go with the player with the most upside and hype. Pairing Clowney with J.J. Watt will be huge for the Texans.

2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington)
Greg Robinson

Keeping it simple so far. Robinson addresses a need on the offensive line, with Jake Long‘s age and injury history. Watkins could be a great wide receiver but isn’t the bigger guy they need to add to their offense, they could go Mike Evans here.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Khalil Mack

The Jaguars go with the best fit for their LEO position with Mack a stellar athlete from a small school.

4. Cleveland Browns
Sammy Watkins

With Robinson and Clowney off the board, and no QBs selected yet, the Browns role the dice with the most electric WR in the draft. Evans is clearly a possibility here but the Browns go with the dynamic Watkins. The Browns hope to have a QB fall to them at 26 or may look to trade up starting with the Bears selection.

5. Oakland Raiders
Blake Bortles

Bortles has the upside and potential that the Raiders can bank on. While the GM and coach know they are on thin ice they go with a QB that could buy them a little time with his potential. Taking Jake Matthews here is a option.
