1. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville (Jr.): He has a rocket for an arm, plays in a pro-style offense and has the size teams love. He will be the No. 1 pick next April.
2. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina (Jr.): He is a pass-rush freak. He has explosive speed off the edge and plays with a nasty streak. What's not to like?
3. Cyrus Kouandjio, T, Alabama (Jr): He is a better pro prospect in my mind than former teammate D.J. Fluker, who went 12th to San Diego this year. Plus, he's a left tackle.
4. Marqise Lee, WR, USC (Jr.): He is big, long, fast and plays in a pro-style offense. He is special.
5. Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson: He has the arm and the ability to spread the football around. And he's accurate. He can also run now that he has trimmed down. He is a dual-threat quarterback, but more of a passer than you think.
6. Adrian Hubbard, OLB, Alabama (Jr.): When studying the Alabama tape this year, my eyes were drawn to him. He can be a special edge rusher in a 3-4.
7. Jake Matthews, T, Texas A&M: The son of Hall of Fame guard Bruce Matthews, he is a force who will move to left tackle this season with Luke Joeckel gone to the Jaguars.
8. Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson (Jr.): Can he fly or what? Speed, speed, and more speed. He was the Tigers' best receiver, not DeAndre Hopkins, who was a first-round pick by Houston last week.
9. Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame (Jr.): One of the big reasons Manti Te'o got to make a lot of plays was Nix in the middle of the line creating havoc. Nix is a power player who also has good quickness.
10. Taylor Lewan, T, Michigan: He did a much better job against Clowney than he got credit for in that bowl game. He has the feet you need to play left tackle on the next level.
11. Kyle Von Noy, OLB, BYU: When studying Ziggy Ansah, this kid showed up a ton on tape. I was shocked he went back to BYU. He reminds me of Brad Van Pelt, an old-time Giants linebacker.
12. Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame (Jr.): He is a 300-pound end who can run. He had 12 sacks last season for a good Irish defense.
13. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA: He is an edge rusher who is ideal for any 3-4 team. Those guys always have great value. He is a great athlete who can run at 6-5, 245.
14. Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State (Jr.): He is a smooth cover corner who isn't tall at 5-11, but he can play man coverage and he's good at it.
15. C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama: From a talent standpoint, he might be the most talented of the Alabama players. But his position doesn't have the value of the others.
16. David Fales, QB, San Jose State: Most haven't seen him play. If you haven't, watch him this year. He is big, strong and has a good arm. He completed 72.4 percent of his passes last season.
17. Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU: He's the next in the line of big-time inside players to come out of LSU. They haven't all hit on the next level, but he has a real chance.
18. Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma: He is a 6-foot corner who knows how to excel in man coverage and he's also a willing tackler.
19. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington: He has a DUI arrest that could hurt his stock, but is he ever talented. He is a big, strong, powerful pass-catching tight end.
20. David Yankey, T, Stanford (Jr.): He's a good pass protector who will need to get stronger on the next level. But those Stanford linemen come out NFL ready.
21. Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama (Jr.): He has good size at 6-1, but he also has the speed and range teams now crave on the back end.
22. Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas: The son of former NFL defensive end Jim Jeffcoat might have been in this year's draft if he didn't get hurt last season. He has good speed and power off the edge.
23. Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State: We saw two guards go in the top 10 this year, and this kid has a chance to go in the top half of the first round next year.
24. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon (Jr.): Teams are now intrigued by dual-threat quarterbacks, and Mariota is that. He is big and fast and has a big arm.
25. Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State (Jr.): He is short at 6-2, but he is a strong power player (295 pounds) in the middle of the Seminoles defense.
26. Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida (Jr.): At 6-1, he has good size and plays a lot of man coverage for the Gators. He has a chance to go even higher with a good season.
27. AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama: He isn't just a system quarterback playing on a good team. He's accurate and has a good arm. He also has good size.
28. Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt: He has the size (6-3) you want in an outside receiver and he has put up big numbers at Vandy. His 40 times will be big.
29. Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia: If he were an inch or two taller, he would be higher on the list. He has a rocket for an arm.
30. Antonio Richardson, T, Tennessee (Jr.): -- He is a powerful left tackle who did a nice job against Clowney last year. He could move much higher up this list next year.
31. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State (Jr.): He is a run-and-chase linebacker who can also rush the quarterback. His size at 225 pounds might be a concern.
32. William Sutton, DT, Arizona State: Yes, he's undersized for the position. But he kid is special. He is strong and quick.
After a dearth of top-tier quarterbacks in the 2013 draft, Pete Prisco foresees a bumper crop in 2014 -- with seven QBs coming off the board among his projected top 32 picks.
Interesting mock draft. Quarterbacks have the highest position value for sure.

I really can't see Teddy B, getting taken that high. Louisville is just much better than anyone they play on their terrible schedule.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Richardson will be a top ten pick IMO.
at Aaron Murray's "rocket arm"
too much bammer ITBBO
Remember that Geno was supposed to be a top 10 pick as well
I remember when Jevan Snead was supposed to be a top-10 pick
I'd be willing to bet Bridgewater isn't even a first rounder after ths year
i personally dont see why nobody takes bridgewater seriously...dude seems legit
I don't think there will be enough good film on him to justify being a #1 overall pick, especially over a monster like Clowney.
Dare I say, Matt Barkley.
Compare him to Mariota and there is no comp IMO
totally agree...i think clowney is the no brainer number 1 unless a guy like andrew luck emerges.....and thats just not happening this year
not to mention there are a handful of good qb's next year. bridgewater, mccarron, manziel, murray, etc. would be smarter to trade down to someone who's in love with clowney and take your qb later.
unless someone comes out of nowhere,a la cam newton, clowney should be #1, either by pick or trade.
there are 3 positions worth a clear #1 pick. the qb, the guy who rushes the qb (de) and the guy who protects his blindside (lt).
none of the qb's seem spectacular at this point, though there are several that look good.
there are a handful of lt that look very good and potentially worthy of a #1 (cyko, matthews, lewan, etc.), but you could drop down a few spots and get one of them.
there's only 1 de that's clearly the best. clowney.
if you have solid de's, and need a qb and/or ot, drop down a few and pick up some value in later rd picks plus your need.
if you need a de, well...
agree with this...but a DE could emerge...theres untapped freak athletes everywhere that have their light suddenly turn on....you pretty much know what you are getting with the QB field
Only one I can see challenging Clowney would be Anthony Barr, and that is as a 3-4 OLB

Nearly all Mock drafts had Barkley at least in the top 10 last year. With many #1. He didnt even go in the first 4 rounds this year.
2013 NFL Mock Draft: CBS Sports Has Chiefs Taking Matt Barkley At No. 1 Overall
Jernigan is better than Johnson.
Correct, and he won't got that high
Mocks always seem to be clueless on QB's
From Logan, to Barkley and now Bridgewater
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
I love the idiots comparing Barkley and Geno to Bridgewater.
Both had first round WRs to throw to, Bridgewater is on a talentless team (nobody even got drafted last year)
He is tough, strong, perfect size, and smart. He will be either #1 or #2 when the time comes around.
No, he won't be
QBs are the foundations of teams. That is why 10 of the last 13 first picks have been QBs. (2 DEs)
If you switch Clowney and Bridgewater you have USCar playing for a natty title. U of L would be at a no name bowl.
One defensive player that makes up 25%-33% of a DL isn't on the level as a franchise QB. No matter how good he is.
A DE is like the third most important position on a team and you need two of them.
AJ McCarron and Aaron Murray as 1st rd QB's.
mock draft are so useless
McShay and Kiper combined got one pick right in the first round with their last mock drafts
Logan Thomas was predicted top 5 this time last year
Pull your head out of your ass
