The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked in this mock draft, and they took Michael Floyd. A pick that makes perfect sense, given the Jaguars' ridiculous lack of talent at the receiver position. The Notre Dame product is not an elite prospect, but he should be a clear upgrade for Jacksonville.

Now we come to the Miami Dolphins, who, unlike every other team so far, do not have a huge list of needs. They do have one need that trumps every other need, though: quarterback. That's a need they could fill with Ryan Tannehill - but is he really worth a top 10 pick? Outside of Tannehill, there are a lot of different prospects who the Dolphins could select here - which highlights one problem for this draft: there are a lot of prospects with roughly equal value in the middle of the first draft. There's not a lot of elite talent on this draft.

Round 1

1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2. Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor (trade)
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC
4. Cleveland Browns: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
6. St. Louis Rams (trade): Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
8. Miami Dolphins:
