2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: Borltes is Bill O'Brien's Guy

#5, Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1
(Friday, March 28, 2014)

It's been about two months since my last update, and things are a little different this time. This isn't my first Mock Draft of the season, but it is the first of several since the NFL season officially ended, and Draft season officially began. So, without further ado, here is my 2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0!

Records and needs have been added for each team, as well as the top 4 most realistic alternative options for each team in the first round. You'll also see "Reach/Value" listed below, which is based on where each player is slotted in my Top 50 Big Board. If a player is not ranked in my top 50, then a specific value cannot be determined, and you'll see N/A".

You can view my 2014 NFL Prospect Rankings here and my 2014 NFL Draft Big Board here.





1. Houston Texans
Blake Bortles*, QB, Central Florida
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 229 lbs. | Class: Junior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 2-14 | Team Needs: QB, OL, DL, LB, TE

Analysis: All signs point to the Texans selecting Central Florida signal caller Blake Bortles with the first overall pick. I believe Bortles would be a great fit for Bill O'Brien's offense. He has the prototypical frame and a good skill set, but, this would be a MAJOR reach, as I currently have a second round grade on Bortles.

"I'm told 3/4's through Blake Bortles workout Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien let it be known "I've seen all I need to see." - Tony Pauline

Reach/Value: -37

Other Options:

  1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
  2. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
  3. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
  4. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M



2. Saint Louis Rams
Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 308 lbs. | Class: Senior
(via Washington)


2013 Season Record: 7-9 | Team Needs: WR, OG, OT, S, CB

Analysis: The Rams are expected to go offensive tackle here if they don't trade back. While many expect them to draft Greg Robinson, don't be surprised if they take Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews instead. Matthews is viewed as the "safer" pick, and would be a plug-and-play starter at either tackle spot.

Reach/Value: -3

Other Options:

  1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
  2. Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
  3. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
  4. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn



3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jadeveon Clowney*, EDGE, South Carolina
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 266 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: QB, OL, RB, DL, CB

Analysis: This would be a perfect scenario for David Caldwell and the Jaguars, as I'd imagine their top two targets are Teddy Bridgewater (QB, Louisville) and Jadeveon Clowney (DE, South Carolina). Although, passing on a franchise quarterback could be a mistake, it would be an even bigger mistake to pass on a once-in-a-decade type of talent like Jadeveon Clowney.

Reach/Value: +2

Other Options:

  1. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
  2. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
  3. Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
  4. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M



4. Cleveland Browns
Sammy Watkins*, WR, Clemson
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 214 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: QB, OG, WR, DB, RB

Analysis: Cleveland seems to be very interested in Derek Carr, and their representatives have been skipping all of the major quarterback pro days. It's more likely that they look to trade up from #26 overall, and take the best player on the board. Sammy Watkins, the best receiver in the draft, paired with Josh Gordon would make this offense even more explosive.

Reach/Value: 0

Other Options:

  1. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
  2. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
  3. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
  4. Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State



5. Oakland Raiders
Teddy Bridgewater*, QB, Louisville
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 208 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: QB, OG, DB, LB, TE

Analysis: Even after trading for Matt Schaub, Oakland is in a position to draft the best quarterback available. They seem to really love Derek Carr, but they won't pass on Teddy Bridgewater. Many expect him to slide, but Bridgewater is still the best signal caller available in the 2014 NFL Draft.

"The word leaving pro-day is 'connecting the dots' Bridgewater ends up with the Oakland Raiders in round one." - Tony Pauline

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
  2. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
  3. Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
  4. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M



6. Atlanta Falcons
Khalil Mack, EDGE, Buffalo
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 252 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: OT, OLB, TE, S, RB

Analysis: At this point, the Falcons would have a tough choice between Greg Robinson and Khalil Mack. Robinson has the traits to be an elite tackle, and is a dominant run blocker. But, Mack is the best defensive player in the draft not named Jadeveon Clowney. I don't have any inside info of course, but I get the feeling that Atlanta would lean with the edge rusher here.

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
  2. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA
  3. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
  4. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan



7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Johnny Manziel**, QB, Texas A&M
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 207 lbs. | Class: Sophomore (RS)


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: QB, OG, OLB, TE, WR

Analysis: The Buccaneers have the luxury of drafting the best player on their board. With Sammy Watkins gone, don't be surprised if the Buccaneers pull the trigger on a quarterback with the 7th overall pick. The signing of Josh McCown certainly won't preclude them from drafting a talent like Johnny Manziel. Opinions vary on Manziel, but he is undoubtedly a first round talent. Lovie Smith and company can afford to gamble on such a polarizing prospect.

Reach/Value: -14

Other Options:

  1. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA
  2. Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
  3. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
  4. C.J. Mosley, MLB, Alabama



8. Minnesota Vikings
Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 215 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 5-10-1 | Team Needs: QB, OG, OLB, S, CB

Analysis: Another team that can go "best player available". Minnesota desperately needs a franchise quarterback, and this pick makes almost too much sense. Mike Zimmer wants a big-armed pocket passer, and Derek Carr would be a perfect fit for Norv Turner's vertical offense.

Reach/Value: -3

Other Options:

  1. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA
  2. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
  3. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
  4. C.J. Mosley, MLB, Alabama



9. Buffalo Bills
Greg Robinson**, OT, Auburn
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 327 lbs. | Class: Sophomore (RS)


2013 Season Record: 6-10 | Team Needs: OT, WR, TE, S, DE

Analysis: Greg Robinson is one of Buffalo's top targets, so they'll run to the podium if he's still available. Yes, Robinson is the consensus top tackle and most don't seem him falling out of the top 5 picks, but I think it's possible. Plug in Robinson at one of those tackle spots, and you've basically solidified the offensive line.

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
  2. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
  3. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
  4. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA



10. Detroit Lions
Anthony Barr, EDGE, UCLA
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 247 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 7-9 | Team Needs: S, CB, DE, OLB, WR

Analysis: The Lions almost always draft the best available player. In this case, that would be UCLA edge rusher Anthony Barr. If you don't think the Lions will draft edge rushers in back-to-back years, remember, in 2010 and 2011, they selected defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley respectively. Pairing Barr with Ansah would give the Lions an impressive young tandem of pass rushers, and arguably help form the best (young) defensive line in football.

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
  2. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
  3. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
  4. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M



11. Tennessee Titans
Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 198 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 7-9 | Team Needs: QB, CB, NT, RB, LB

Analysis: Tennessee's is transitioning to a hybrid 3-4 defense, so adding the right personnel should be a priority. However, their biggest need on defense is a cornerback after losing Alterraun Verner. Justin Gilbert is the favorite to be the first corner drafted. He has the size, length, athleticism, and play making ability that NFL teams covet.

Reach/Value: -3

Other Options:

  1. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
  2. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
  3. Louis Nix III, NT, Notre Dame
  4. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan



12. New York Giants
Mike Evans**, WR, Texas A&M
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 231 lbs. | Class: Sophomore (RS)


2013 Season Record: 7-9 | Team Needs: OT, OLB, WR, TE, DL

Analysis: With the moves the Giants have made, it's safe to say they won't spend this pick on a defensive back. They could go many different ways here, but with Mike Evans still sitting on the board, he'd be difficult to pass up. Eli Manning needs a number one receiver, and Evans is the best receiver not named Sammy Watkins in the draft.

Reach/Value: +2

Other Options:

  1. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
  2. Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
  3. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
  4. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama



13. Saint Louis Rams
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix*, S, Alabama
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 207 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 7-9 | Team Needs: WR, OG, OT, S, CB

Analysis: The secondary must be addressed. St. Louis could use another corner, but the more pressing need is at safety. The rangy, play making safety "Ha Ha" Clinton-Dix would be a steal here for the Rams. He's the perfect compliment for TJ McDonald, who's more suited as a strong safety.

Reach/Value: +5

Other Options:

  1. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
  4. C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama



14. Chicago Bears
Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 195 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: S, CB, DT, OT, OLB

Analysis: After bolstering their defensive line, expect the Bears to target a cornerback here, which makes sense considering that Charles Tillman only re-signed on a one-year deal, and could be moving to safety. He isn't as fast or athletic as his Oklahoma State counterpart, but Darqueze Dennard is a physical press corner who projects as a potential shutdown guy at the next level.

Reach/Value: -1

Other Options:

  1. Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
  4. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri



15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kelvin Benjamin**, WR, Florida State
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 242 lbs. | Class: Sophomore (RS)


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: WR, CB, DL, ILB, RB

Analysis: Pittsburgh wants to draft a tall receiver in the first round, but Mike Evans is off the board. Where do they go then? How about Kelvin Benjamin? Benjamin is raw, but may have more upside than an Evans. I have a 3rd round grade on Benjamin, so he would definitely be a huge reach in my opinion, but the reward could be great if they hit on him.

Reach/Value: N/A

Other Options:

  1. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
  2. Louis Nix III, NT, Notre Dame
  3. Ra'Shede Hageman, DE, Minnesota
  4. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech



16. Dallas Cowboys
Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 287 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: DE, DT, S, OG, OLB

Analysis: Yes, Dallas signed Henry Melton, but can they really afford to pass on the best interior pass rusher in this class? Aaron Donald is the best 3-technique defensive tackle in the draft, which is where Melton lined up in Chicago. It's interesting to note than the Dallas Cowboys website has Melton listed as a defensive end. Does than mean they'll use him like Oakland used Lamarr Houston? If so, Donald makes a little more sense than at first glance.

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. Louis Nix III, NT, Notre Dame
  4. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama



17. Baltimore Ravens
Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Ht: 6-7 Wt: 312 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: WR, OT, S, TE, DL

Analysis: Adding Steve Smith shouldn't preclude them from targeting a receiver, but expect Ozzie Newsome to draft the best player available. Concerns about his character could cause Taylor Lewan to slide, but I doubt he gets past Baltimore. They let Michael Oher walk (for good reason), so Lewan makes a ton of sense as a big upgrade at right tackle.

Reach/Value: +5

Other Options:

  1. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
  4. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina



18. New York Jets
Brandin Cooks*, WR, Oregon State
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 185 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: WR, OG, TE, DB, LB

Analysis: I do think they'll take a long, hard look at Eric Ebron (who at this point is sliding), but the Jets have been enamored with Brandin Cooks throughout the draft process. Cooks shouldn't be limited to the slot. He is an explosive, play making receiver, which is what the Jets currently lack.

Reach/Value: -24

Other Options:

  1. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
  2. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  3. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
  4. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech



19. Miami Dolphins
Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 308 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 8-8 | Team Needs: OG, OT, LB, WR, DB

Analysis: Miami also has the luxury of drafting the best player available, but, they also still have several holes to fill on the offensive line. One thing is for sure, Zack Martin can fill one of them. He'll likely be given a shot to start at right tackle, but should also be able to kick inside to guard, which could be his best position.

Reach/Value: -5

Other Options:

  1. C.J. Mosley, MLB, Alabama
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  4. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California



20. Arizona Cardinals
Dee Ford, EDGE, Auburn
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 252 lbs. | Class: Senior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 10-6 | Team Needs: OLB, OG, CB, TE, DL

Analysis: "Luxury" is the key word in this mock. But, that doesn't mean teams aren't filling needs when trusting their boards. You can make the case that Dee Ford is a better football player than Anthony Barr right now. Needing an edge rusher, this pick makes a lot of sense.

Reach/Value: -3

Other Options:

  1. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  2. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
  3. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
  4. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina



21. Green Bay Packers
Eric Ebron*, TE, North Carolina
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 253 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 8-7-1 | Team Needs: TE, S, ILB, C, WR

Analysis: It's no secret that Green Bay is likely going to focus on the defensive side of the ball in round one, but, I doubt they expected Eric Ebron to be available once they got up to bat. The consensus top tight end in the draft is what the new age NFL is looking for from the position. There's absolutely nothing wrong with supplying the best quarterback in football with more weapons.

Reach/Value: -6

Other Options:

  1. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Miami
  2. Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
  3. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  4. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville



22. Philadelphia Eagles
Calvin Pryor*, S, Louisville
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 211 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 10-6 | Team Needs: S, OLB, WR, DL, ILB

Analysis: Releasing DeSean Jackson may come as a surprise to some, but was an expected move if a trade could not happen. It's very likely Chip Kelly and the Eagles target a receiver in round one, but safety is still a pretty big need as well, so Calvin Pryor should still be in play.

Reach/Value: -3

Other Options:

  1. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  2. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
  3. Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
  4. Louis Nix III, NT, Notre Dame



23. Kansas City Chiefs
C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 234 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 11-5 | Team Needs: WR, OG, DB, ILB, DE

Analysis: Though the Chiefs are widely expected to take a receiver in the first round, I'm not sure if they can pass on C.J. Mosley. The draft's top non-pass rushing linebacker is a top 15 talent, and pairing him with Derrick Johnson would be unfair.

Reach/Value: +6

Other Options:

  1. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  2. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
  3. Ra'Shede Hageman, DE, Minnesota
  4. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech



24. Cincinnati Bengals
Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 190 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 11-5 | Team Needs: CB, C, LB, DE, WR

Analysis: Terence Newman is aging, Dre Kirkpatrick looks like a bust, Adams Jones isn't very good, and Leon Hall is coming off of another torn ACL. Safe to say, cornerback is a pressing need. Kyle Fuller is in the same tier as Justin Gilbert and Darqueze Dennard. If teams aren't concerned about his health, he'll be a first round pick.

Reach/Value: +4

Other Options:

  1. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  2. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
  3. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  4. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California



25. San Diego Chargers
Louis Nix III*, NT, Notre Dame
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 331 lbs. | Class: Junior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 9-7 | Team Needs: CB, OG, OLB, NT, WR

Analysis: They have more pressing needs, but the Chargers apparently would like to target a defensive lineman with this pick. The best value is Louis Nix, who would replace the inconsistent Cam Thomas at nose tackle.

Reach/Value: +3

Other Options:

  1. Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian
  2. Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
  3. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Louisiana State
  4. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California



26. Cleveland Browns
Bradley Roby*, CB, Ohio State
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 195 lbs. | Class: Junior (RS)
(via Indianapolis)


2013 Season Record: 4-12 | Team Needs: QB, OG, WR, DB, RB

Analysis: Cleveland misses out on the top four quarterbacks, but will likely wait until the second or third round to address the position. Bradley Roby could intrigue the Browns. They need a corner opposite Joe Haden, and while inconsistent in 2013, Roby may have the best upside of any of the top corners.

Reach/Value: -20

Other Options:

  1. Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian
  2. Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
  3. Ryan Shazier, ILB, Ohio State
  4. Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA



27. New Orleans Saints
Odell Beckham Jr.*, WR, Louisiana State
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 198 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 11-5 | Team Needs: CB, OLB, ILB, WR, C

Analysis: No one is talking about New Orleans possibly adding another receiver. I'd imagine it would be very hard for them to pass on Odell Beckham, who would add more explosiveness and talent to the receiving corps.

Reach/Value: +8

Other Options:

  1. Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
  2. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  3. Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian
  4. Ryan Shazier, ILB, Ohio State



28. Carolina Panthers
Cyrus Kouandjio*, OT, Alabama
Ht: 6-7 Wt: 322 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 12-4 | Team Needs: OL, WR, CB, S, OLB

Analysis: Cam Newton needs more weapons, but he needs to be kept upright as well. The left tackle position should be their top priority. Cyrus Kouandjio's range appears to be round 1-3, depending on how he checks out medically. If he does check out, he should be in play for the Panthers.

Reach/Value: -4

Other Options:

  1. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
  2. Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
  3. Brandon Thomas, OT, Clemson
  4. Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian



29. New England Patriots
Jace Amaro*, TE, Texas Tech
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 266 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 12-4 | Team Needs: DT, C, WR, TE, S

Analysis: If Jace Amaro is still on the board, he'll be a New England Patriot. Amaro is my top ranked tight end, and while he may not be quite the same athlete, he does a lot of things that remind me of Jimmy Graham. And when Rob Gronkowski is finally healthy, they'll form an amazing tight end duo.

Reach/Value: +11

Other Options:

  1. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  2. Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA
  3. Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
  4. Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State



30. San Francisco 49ers
Marqise Lee*, WR, Southern California
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 192 lbs. | Class: Junior


2013 Season Record: 12-4 | Team Needs: CB, WR, C, DL, LB

Analysis: An already stacked 49ers team has the luxury of selecting the best available player. In this case, that player would also fill a need. Marqise Lee is more dynamic than Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree, and it wasn't that long ago when he was considered the best receiver in this class.

Reach/Value: +4

Other Options:

  1. Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian
  2. Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
  3. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  4. Ra'Shede Hageman, DE, Minnesota



31. Denver Broncos
Jason Verrett, CB, Texas Christian
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 186 lbs. | Class: Senior


2013 Season Record: 13-3 | Team Needs: CB, MLB, DT, DE, OL

Analysis: Denver's secondary looks very different on paper than it did a few months ago. Aqib Talib and Tony Carter are good players, but they need another corner. Jason Verrett would make a ton of sense, even if they only view him as a "slot corner".

Reach/Value: -5

Other Options:

  1. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
  2. Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
  3. Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
  4. Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota



32. Seattle Seahawks
Kony Ealy*, DE, Missouri
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 265 lbs. | Class: Junior (RS)


2013 Season Record: 13-3 | Team Needs: WR, OL, TE, DL, CB

Analysis: Seattle could target a receiver or an offensive lineman, but the way they were pursuing Jared Allen and Henry Melton suggests that they want to add another pass rusher. Kony Ealy would be a steal late in round one.
