1. Colts: Robert Griffin III, quarterback, Baylor.
In an upset, the Colts opt for the most gifted quarterback in the draft.
2. Redskins: Andrew Luck, quarterback, Stanford.
Mike Shanahan settles for a still-elite prospect at the game’s premier position.
3. Vikings: Matt Kalil, tackle, USC.
Left tackle is Minnesota’s biggest need, and Kalil is a top-three talent.
4. Browns: Morris Claiborne, cornerback, LSU.
The Browns may reach for offense, but Claiborne is the best player left.
5. Bucs: Trent Richardson, running back, Alabama.
LeGarrette Blount alone won’t cut it for Greg Schiano’s run-first approach.
6. Rams: Justin Blackmon, wide receiver, Oklahoma State.
The new regime wants its top wideout to dominate after the catch.
7. Jaguars: Melvin Ingram, defensive end, South Carolina.
Able to play almost anywhere, Ingram is the draft’s most versatile rusher.
8. Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill, quarterback Texas A&M.
After whiffing on free agent QBs, the Fins reunite Tannehill with Mike Sherman.
9. Panthers: Quinton Coples, defensive end, North Carolina.
Coples teams with Charles Johnson to give Carolina a terrific end tandem.
10. Bills: Riley Reiff, tackle, Iowa.
The Bills were free agency “winners,” but they still need offensive line help.
11. Chiefs: Dontari Poe, defensive tackle, Memphis.
K.C. has been willing to reach for defensive linemen under G.M. Scott Pioli.
12. Seahawks: Whitney Mercilus, defensive end, Illinois.
Mercilus must clean up his technique, but he is a relentless outside rusher.
13. Cardinals: Cordy Glenn, tackle, Georgia.
Glenn fits the Russ Grimm mold at 346 pounds with an efficient game.
14. Cowboys: Courtney Upshaw, defensive end, Alabama.
He’s an upgrade on Anthony Spencer, whom Dallas reluctantly franchised.
15. Eagles: Stephon Gilmore, cornerback, South Carolina.
The Eagles are prepared to part with Asante Samuel; Gilmore replaces him.
16. Jets: Michael Floyd, receiver, Notre Dame.
Floyd improves the Jets’ odds of making good on their QB investments.
17. Bengals: Kendall Wright, receiver, Baylor.
Wright is the best player left, giving Cincy a dynamic bookend for A.J. Green.
18. Chargers: David DeCastro, guard, Stanford.
DeCastro would solidify a San Diego line that is promisingly getting younger.
19. Bears: Nick Perry, defensive end, USC.
Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli will love Perry’s burst off the edge.
20. Titans: Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle, Mississippi State.
Cox is an impact interior rusher with room to improve as a run stuffer.
21. Bengals: Dre Kirkpatrick, cornerback, Alabama.
Some teams like Kirkpatrick at safety, but he’d be a press corner for the Bengals.
22. Browns: Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech.
Not just a workout freak, Hill is a natural hands catcher with elite separation skills.
23. Lions: Jonathan Martin, tackle, Stanford.
24. Steelers: Mike Adams, tackle, Ohio State.
Adams is far from polished, but it’s no secret that the Steelers are high on him.
25. Broncos: Devon Still, defensive tackle, Penn State.
Denver declines to pass on the the most productive interior defensive lineman left.
26. Texans: Rueben Randle, receiver, LSU.
Houston didn’t address receiver in free agency, so it pounces on Randle’s potential.
27. Patriots: Michael Brockers, defensive tackle, LSU.
Brockers can’t rush the passer, but has a bright future as a five-technique, 3-4 end.
28. Packers: Peter Konz, center, Wisconsin.
The homegrown talent would be Scott Wells‘ successor in Green Bay.
29. Ravens: Coby Fleener, tight end, Stanford.
He’d be Baltimore’s version of Jimmy Graham as a playmaking “Joker” tight end.
30. 49ers: Doug Martin, running back, Boise State.
The Niners were forced to re-settle for Alex Smith, so they’ll keep running the ball.
31. Patriots: Brian Quick, receiver, Appalachian State.
Flying under the radar, Quick has tools to develop into a future No. 1 receiver.
32. Giants: Luke Kuechly, linebacker, Boston College.
Inside linebackers aren’t drafted early, but Kuechly fills a big need in New York.
