Analysis: Chiefs addressed QB in free agency and franchise LT's are rare. KC could still get Fisher or Johnson with trade down, but Joeckel is generally higher regarded. With rumors swirling that KC will trade Branden Albert, the Chiefs stay in the No. 1 spot and grab Alex Smith's protector in Joeckel who will be a Pro Bowler for years to come. After months of speculation Kansas City sticks with Joeckel. The former Aggie will help give Alex Smith the time he needs to find his targets.

*Eric Fisher, OT
Central Michigan
Analysis: Jordan is the Von Miller of this draft, an edge terror, and this for a team that should spend most of its draft looking for pass rushers. New coach Gus Bradley saw what Bruce Irvin meant to Seattle's "D." Gus Bradley wants speed on the Jaguars defense and gets it with the best pass rusher in the class. *TRADE WITH LIONS: The lure of taking a local favorite who could be a franchise left tackle was too much for Detroit to avoid. The Lions deal with the Jags to move up three spots.

Sharrif Floyd, DT
Florida
Analysis: Oakland brought in Nick Roach at MLB and Floyd is the best DT in this year's class, able to work in one-or-two-gap schemes and form a nucleus in the middle with Roach. GM Reggie McKenzie goes with the smart pick and selects Floyd to fill the void on the Raiders D-Line after parting ways with Richard Seymour and Tommy Kelly in the offseason. Oakland fills a need and plays it safe (for once) by selecting the top defensive tackle on the board.

Eric Fisher, OT

Dion Jordan, DE
Oregon
Analysis: This is a coin-toss over Ansah but new coach Chip Kelly is about offense, fast offense, and setting the edge on Michael Vick's blind side is a priority. Offensive "genius" Chip Kelly gets a key piece for the Eagles offense in Fisher to help protect Vick and improve Philadelphia's woeful O-Line. This seems way too predictable, but why not? Jordan's former college coach Chip Kelly uses his first pick ever to draft him, giving the Eagles some serious pressure off the edge.
Ziggy Ansah, DE
BYU
Dee Milliner, CB
Alabama
*Ziggy Ansah, DE
BYU
Analysis: Losing Cliff Avril hurts a shaky Detroit defense, Jim Schwartz got tackle Riley Reiff last year and Ansah is a player who can make the back-seven better with pressure complementing Ndamukong Suh. The Lions go with the athletic Milliner to pair with Chris Houston to form a capable secondary in the pass-heavy NFC North. *TRADE WITH JAGUARS: The Jaguars trade down three spots and still land Ansah, one of the most talented players in the draft. Ansah's raw, but he has some major upside.
Dee Milliner, CB
Alabama
Ziggy Ansah, DE
BYU
Dee Milliner, CB
Alabama
Analysis: Milliner could go to nearly any of the first five and be a good pick. What he gives the Browns is the true best-player-available and a partner with CB Joe Haden for an elite coverage duo. Ansah's potential is too high for the Browns to pass up on despite adding Paul Kruger in the offseason. Cleveland benefits from some movement by two teams ahead of them and sees the top cornerback in the draft, Dee Milliner, sitting there for the taking at No. 6. Milliner paired with Joe Haden would be about as good as gets.

Analysis: Arizona brought in Carson Palmer, which is a short-term solution for new coach Bruce Arians, who knows that if you can't draft your franchise QB (not in this year's draft), then you'd better protect the one you have. New head coach Bruce Arians brought in Carson Palmer to give the Cardinals a 'respectable' quarterback. Now he gets Johnson to protect the QB's blindside. The Cardinals end up playing it safe by not trading up and are rewarded with the ultra-talented and athletic Johnson.
Geno Smith, QB

Chance Warmack, OG
Alabama
Analysis: Kevin Kolb is nothing more than a backup. New coach Doug Marrone likes Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib and could deal down to add picks and still get his former college QB, but Smith is better. Is the Nassib chatter real or just a smokescreen? Nonetheless, Smith appears to be the safe bet here and will look to prove the naysayers wrong. One of the best offensive guards to come out in more than a decade, Warmack possesses the perfect blend of power and championship pedigree. Exactly what Buffalo needs.
Jarvis Jones, OLB
Georgia
Barkevious Mingo, DE
LSU
Barkevious Mingo, DE
LSU
Analysis: Jets have tried to give Rex Ryan his defensive stars -- Darrelle Revis, Vernon Gholston, Kyle Wilson, Quinton Coples and Muhammed Wilkerson in five of the last six first rounds. Jones is potentially elite and ideal for the attacking 3-4 Ryan runs. For one more year, anyway. The Jets need to find someone who can get to the quarterback. Ryan elects for Mingo at No. 9 to pair him with last year's first-rounder Quinton Coples. Rex Ryan gets his guy. Mingo will be the best pass rusher left on the board at No. 9 and it's no secret that is precisely what the Ryan is craving.
Jonathan Cooper, OG
North Carolina
Star Lotulelei, DT
Utah
Jonathan Cooper, OG
North Carolina
Analysis: Coach Mike Munchak got G Andy Levitre in free agency and is a Hall of Fame guard. He wants an elite wall in front of Chris Johnson and Cooper or Chance Warmack gives him that. A little off the wall here since the top two rated guards are still on the board, but the Titans elect to grab Lotulelei to anchor their defensive line. The Titans see too much they like from Jonathan Cooper to pass on him. Although Warmack is the first guard drafted, Cooper is more than just a consolation prize.
Chance Warmack, OG
Alabama
Jonathan Cooper, OG
North Carolina
D.J. Fluker, OT
Alabama
Analysis: This is the best way to fill their hole at guard and also the best-available at this point. Rivers spent too much time on the ground last season so the Chargers grab the top interior lineman in the class with North Carolina's Cooper. Fluker is a nasty player on the field who will dominate defenders. Quarterback Philip Rivers will appreciate his competitive nature and giant frame.
Xavier Rhodes, CB
Florida State
Chance Warmack, OG
Alabama
Xavier Rhodes, CB
Florida State
Analysis: Miami needs help against the pass and the call will be between LSU "rush-man" Barkevious Mingo and Rhodes. Dolphins stay in-state here and hope Rhodes is in the Deion Sanders FSU tradition. Probably not, but this is a need area. Miami revamped its offense in the offseason. Inserting the powerful Warmack on their line next to Pouncey gives them a formidable duo going forward. Hometown kid gets to suit up for a Dolphins team that is trying to take the next step in the rebuilding process.
Star Lotulelei, DT
Utah
Tavon Austin, WR
West Virginia
Tyler Eifert, TE
Notre Dame
Analysis: ND tight end Tyler Eifert would not be a complete surprise here, someone to answer the Patriots' TE nucleus. But Rex Ryan is about defense and Lotulelei is polished and a massive (311) presence who also can push the pocket. The Jets desperately need more playmakers on offense. Austin is the consensus No. 1 wideout in the class and gives New York a dangerous weapon in the passing game.  The former Notre Dame standout climbs all the way to No. 13, where the Jets fill a huge need for a playmaking tight end.
Sheldon Richardson, DT
Missouri
Sheldon Richardson, DT
Missouri
Kenny Vaccaro, S
Texas
Analysis: Surrounding Cam Newton with more talent should be a priority and D.J. Fluker wouldn't surprise here, but Ron Rivera needs a dominator up front on defense. The Panthers are thin at defensive tackle and need more talent up front. Defensive-minded Rivera goes with the safest best on the board in Richardson. Vaccaro could be a Top 10 pick, but he slips just a bit to the Panthers who will pair the rookie with talented veteran safety Charles Godrey.
Tavon Austin, WR
West Virginia
Jarvis Jones, OLB
Georgia
*Tavon Austin, WR
West Virginia
Analysis: Replacing LT Jermon Bushrod isn't possible here and Sean Payton loves speed on the outside. Austin is all of that. Despite the slow 40 time, Jones is still regarded as one of the best OLB's in the 2013 class. His playmaking ability gives the Saints defense just what they need. *TRADE WITH STEELERS: Pittsburgh sees an opportunity to jump ahead of other potential suitors for Austin and snags arguably the most explosive player in the draft.
Barkevious Mingo, DE
LSU
Kenny Vaccaro, S
Texas
*Sheldon Richardson, DT
Missouri
Analysis: Jeff Fisher would have preferred more firepower for QB Sam Bradford, but a speed rusher in that dome makes both sides of the ball better. It's no secret the Rams need a safety. They're thrilled to see the No. 1 rated safety still on the board and rush to the podium to make their selection. *TRADE WITH COWBOYS: The Cowboys take advantage of some movement due to Austin and allow the Rams to trade down. Dallas then selects Richardson, the best defensive lineman on the board and someone they really like.
Damontre Moore, DE
Texas A&M
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR
Tennessee
*Jarvis Jones, OLB
Georgia
Analysis: Replacing the impact of James Harrison is key for Dick LeBeau and Damontre Moore may be a reach but a good fit for the Steelers' 3-4. The loss of Mike Wallace hurts, but it won't take Steelers fans long to forget with the addition of Patterson who can do it all and may have the most upside of any wide receiver in the draft. *TRADE WITH SAINTS:Jones was always a player the Saints wanted. New Orleans moves down a few spots and still lands Jones while also picking up an additional pick.
D.J. Fluker, OT
Alabama
Sylvester Williams, DT
North Carolina
*Eric Reid, S
LSU
Analysis: Dallas committed to Tony Romo and just as the Bears made moves on the line to help Jay Cutler, the Cowboys need more up front. RT has been an issue. Fluker is a huge bookend to LT Tyron Smith, another No. 1 OL pick. The Cowboys break their rival Giants' hearts by selecting Williams one spot ahead of them. Putting Williams on their D-Line will free up space for their talented edge rushers. *TRADE WITH RAMS: St. Louis feels fortunate to trade down and still have a quality player of need available to them. Reid will be a day one starter for the Rams.
Sylvester Williams, DT
North Carolina
Xavier Rhodes, CB
Florida State
Sylvester Williams, DT
North Carolina
Analysis: The Giants addressed offensive line with three re-signings. They have been scrambling on defense and Williams is too good to pass up, although the board still has good options at safety. Cornerback is a big need for the Giants. They go with the talented Rhodes who sees his stock fall after a run-on of defensive and offensive lineman. Williams is a hard-working defensive lineman that will get the job done on the inside, while the Giants' talented pass rushers do damage on the outside.
Alec Ogletree, ILB
Georgia
Alec Ogletree, ILB
Georgia
Alec Ogletree, ILB
Georgia 
Analysis: Conventional thinking has the Bears trading down to add picks. Leap-frogging the Giants to grab Williams addresses a D-line need, and there is still a big question at guard. If they can't go after a targeted player, either offensive or defensive line, Ogletree is a potential starter next year if not this. The Bears could elect to trade down, but are thrilled to see Ogletree still on the board. The talented former Georgia linebacker gives Chicago its heir-apparent to Brian Urlacher and could spend his rookie season learning behind D.J. Williams. Ogletree is still available at No. 20, which proves to be too tempting for the Bears to pass on. The former Bulldog adds some much-needed youth to the defense. The Bears certainly have a variety of needs, but Ogletree makes the most sense.
Kenny Vaccaro, S
Texas
Eric Reid, S
LSU
Jonathan Cyprien, S
Florida International
Analysis: Safety is the weak spot in an emerging defense and Vaccaro is a big-time player from a major program. Eric Reid is the fall back if Dallas takes a Lone Star home guy. The Bengals need an upgrade at safety after getting poor play from Taylor Mays and Reggie Nelson in 2012. Cincinnati elects to go with Reid over Florida's Matt Elam Solid prospect who will help Cincinnati's defense reach that next level. Some scouts fear the lack of competition he faced in college could prove to be an issue.
Eric Reid, S
LSU
Justin Hunter, WR
Tennessee
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR
Tennessee 
Analysis: The chance to add two Day 1 starters in the first round will be too good for Jeff Fisher to pass up. Rejoice Rams nation, the team finally drafts a wide receiver. Hunter gives Bradford a big target to throw to who was consistent in his three seasons at Tennessee. Is he a one-year wonder or the second coming of Randy Moss? The truth most likely lies somewhere in the middle. Patterson is good receiver that can develop with Sam Bradford throwing to him.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR
Tennessee
Manti Te'o, ILB
Notre Dame
Desmond Trufant, CB
Washington
Analysis: The Vikings may deal up to grab a big wideout who was productive for the Volunteers in his one season with the team. Manti Te'o can rejoice after his whirlwind four months come to an end. The Vikings need help at linebacker and reunite him with his former Notre Dame teammate Harrison Smith. Minnesota receives a dependable cornerback that can step in and be an impact player right away.
Menelik Watson, OT
Florida State
Desmond Trufant, CB
Washington
Bjoern Werner, DE
Florida State
Analysis: Protecting Andrew Luck is the franchise mandate. Watson is an undeveloped 320-pounder with enormous upside because of quickness. Trufant may be the most talented cornerback in the draft and gave Pac-12 receivers fits in 2012. Pairing him with Vontae Davis gives the Colts a talented starting tandem. Werner is just scratching the surface of his talent. The German born defensive lineman helps fill the void left by the departure of Dwight Freeney.
Logan Ryan, CB
Rutgers
Keenan Allen, WR
California
Manti Te'o, ILB
Notre Dame
Analysis: Manti Te'o is a strong possibility here for a team whose No. 1 need is arguably linebacker. But losing Antoine Winfield left a void in a division that has three offenses built on the pass. Adding Greg Jennings won't stop the Vikings from improving their wide receiver corps. Allen gives Ponder another weapon in the passing game and gives the Vikings a solid 1-2 punch. It has been wild ride for Te'o over the past five months, but he will finally have a chance at regaining some normalcy in his life when the Vikings select him at No. 25. and he begins his professional career.
Tyler Eifert, TE
Notre Dame
Eddie Lacy, RB
Alabama
Eddie Lacy, RB
Alabama
Analysis: Jermichael Finley was kept but only on a one-year deal and Mike McCarthy won't leave his offense thin at a linchpin position for Aaron Rodgers. Packers could trade up if Eifert is within reach. The Packers offense gets even scarier with the selection of Lacy. The former Alabama star will make teams gameplan for an actual rushing attack from Green Bay. The first running back doesn't come off the board until late, but the wait will be worth it for the Packers as they land a huge impact player at the end of the first night of the draft.
Keenan Allen, WR
California
Robert Woods, WR
USC
Robert Woods, WR
USC
Analysis: Texans ownership has voiced a need for speed opposite Andre Johnson. Allen is not a burner, but he's 6-foot-2 and caught 205 passes in three seasons without elite quarterbacking. Woods stock has fallen more than anyone in the class. Before the season, he was projected as a Top 5 pick. The Texans get a steal here to pair with Andre Johnson. His stock was sky-high prior to the 2012 season, but a mediocre final year at USC added questions about his upside. Now it seems Houston has no problem with Woods being Andre Johnson's wingman.
Bjoern Werner, DE
Florida State
Tyler Eifert, TE
Notre Dame
Tank Carradine, DE
Florida State
Analysis: Losing Elvis Dumervil was a big setback to the pass rush. Werner had 20 sacks the past two seasons and is a fit in a 4-3 scheme like John Fox's. Eifert's fall finally comes to an end. It may be a bit of luxury pick for the Broncos, but he gives Manning another weapon and huge red-zone target. Carradine's torn right ACL, which occurred on a non-contact play, came at the absolute worst time in FSU's season finale. After a lot of hard work Carradine has proven he is a solid first-round selection.
Johnthan Banks, CB
Mississippi State
D.J. Hayden, CB
Houston
*Geno Smith, QB
West Virginia
Analysis: Bill Belichick wants to keep the secondary strong and the Pats have gone defense with five of their last six first-round picks. This will be between Banks and Desmond Trufant. The Patriots continue to add to their defense in the first-round. If it wasn't for a heart condition, Hayden could have been a Top 15 pick in the draft. *TRADE WITH JAGUARS (2ND & MORE): Smith may go in the Top 10, but if he doesn't he will free fall to the end of the round where some team (like the Jaguars) will trade up to take him.
Zach Ertz, TE
Stanford
Bjoern Werner, DE
Florida State
Johnthan Banks, CB
Mississippi State
Analysis: A guy to apprentice under Tony Gonzalez? Not bad. Werner's potential and upside are too much for the Falcons to ignore this late in the draft. Werner fills a void after the release of John Abraham. Countless SEC receivers say the same thing; Banks is one of the toughest corners they had faced during their college careers. The Falcons see the potential and stay put at where they were slotted to select.
Margus Hunt, DE
SMU
Zach Ertz, TE
Stanford
*Justin Hunter, WR
Tennessee
Analysis: The real question is how far up the 49ers go for a targeted player using their quiver of a dozen or so draft picks to deal. Hunt is a Aldon Smith type DE. Alex Okafor from Texas was more productive but Hunt is faster. Harbaugh elects to go with his former Stanford tight end Zach Ertz who gives 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman another weapon in the passing game. *TRADE WITH JETS (2ND & MORE): Hunter is still available and the Jets need a receiver, so how about another trade to give the Jets a trio of first round picks.
Manti Te'o, ILB
Notre Dame
Jonathan Cyprien, CB
Florida International
DeAndre Hopkins, WR
Clemson
Analysis: Te'o could well end up in Chicago or Minnesota and is the wild card in the second half of the first round. Productive but ... The Ravens need to fill the void after the loss of Ed Reed. Baltimore does so with Cyprien who is the best safety on the board. Ozzie Newsome sits and stays at the final spot in the first-round and will gladly take Hopkins to help replace the production lost with Anquan Boldin's departure.
