The Super Bowl is over, as is Senior Bowl week. Teams are focusing even more on draft preparations, with the NFL combine starting later this month. Thought this was a good time for my second mock draft. I still have the Ravens taking Texas A & M wide receiver Mike Evans with the 16th pick. Here’s the entire first round.

1. Texans – Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville – Bill O’Brien needs a QB to groom.

2. Rams – Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina – They could also trade down.

3. Jaguars – Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida – Their next try at a franchise QB.

4. Browns – Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A & M – The QB’s will go quickly in this draft.

5. Raiders – Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson – The top WR in the draft heads West.

6. Falcons – Greg Robinson, OT Auburn – They need physical linemen and he fits bill.

7. Buccaneers – Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A & M – Immediate reinforcement for line.

9. Bills – Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo - Another edge rusher to help Mario Williams.

10. Lions – Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St. – A solid cover guy to help defense.

11. Titans – Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan – Physical pass blocker to strengthen line.

13. Rams – Marqise Lee, WR, USC – Another playmaker for Sam Bradford.

14. Bears – Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida St. – Would help Julius Peppers on defense.

16. Ravens – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A & M – This is a solid player at a need position.

17. Cowboys _ Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri – Would help DeMarcus Ware get to QB’s.

18. Jets – Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina – A middle of the field target for Geno Smith.

20. Cardinals – Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota – Physical lineman fits Cards’ style.

21. Packers – Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame - Green Bay strengthens middle defense.

22. Eagles – Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville – Secondary was an issue for Eagles in 2013.
