Justin's Week 11 Mock

1. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-13) - Teddy Bridgewater (QB/Louisville)

Jacksonville fans are getting desperate.  After Sunday's game, Jaguars fans took this ad out in their newspaper.

The worst part is, they still think Tim Tebow is the answer.  The Jaguars need to bring in a new quarterback to become the face of this franchise.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12) - Jadeveon Cowney (DE/South Carolina)

Clowney aggravated his foot injury last Saturday against Florida, but it shouldn't harm his stock too much.  Tampa Bay already has a solid defense, but Clowney could really solidify their pass rush.

3. Buffalo Bills (5-11) - Anthony Barr (OLB/UCLA)

The Bills have Mario Williams, but you can never have enough guys who can get to the quarterback in this league.  Barr has seven sacks this season.

4. Cleveland Browns (5-11) - Johnny Manziel (QB/Texas A&M)

Quarterback has been a need in Cleveland, it is doubtful that Brandon Weeden will be brought back.  Maziel's size is a concern, but he has played well enough over the past two seasons that teams could ignore it.

5. Houston Texans (5-11) - Brett Hundley (QB/UCLA)

Case Keenum was benched last week in favor of Matt Schaub's return, signaling that he may not be the long-term answer after all.  Hundley is only a redshirt sophomore, like Manziel, but rumor has it he recently inquired about representation with Roc Nation.

6. St. Louis Rams (6-10) - Jake Matthews (OT/Texas A&M)

With Roger Saffold an impending free agent, tackle is again a need for the Rams.  Sam Bradford is coming off of a torn ACL next season, so protection will be a big need.

7. Minnesota Vikings (6-10) - Tajh Boyd (QB/Clemson)

Both Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel struggled against Seattle's defense and Josh Freeman has pretty much become a bust signing.  I think Boyd will actually drop, but he won't with quarterback as big of a need as it is for the Vikings.

8. Tennessee Titans (6-10) - Louis Nix (DT/Notre Dame)

Nix is the top play available who makes the most sense for the Titans, who are last in the league in rushing touchdowns allowed.  Nix could plug up the middle lanes for Tennessee.

9. Oakland Raiders (6-10) - Mike Evans (WR/Texas A&M)

Oakland needs help at wide receiver in order to help with the development of Terrelle Pryor.  Evans is a big body receiver in the mold of Vincent Jackson.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (6-10) - Haha Clinton-Dix (S/Alabama)

The Eagles have need all across their secondary, so if Clinton-Dix is available, then this becomes a no-brainer. Clinton-Dix is better fit as a free safety, but can play strong safety as well.

11. Atlanta Falcons (6-10) - Khalil Mack (OLB/Buffalo)

Atlanta failed to pressure Tampa Bay, sacking Mike Glennon just twice as he went 20/23 against them.  Mack failed to register at least half of a sack for the first time in six games last week, but did record 15 tackles.

12. St. Louis Rams (6-10) - Jason Verrett (CB/TCU)

Cortland Finnegan has struggled all season.  At this point, the Rams may considering moving him to the nickel spot and finding a new cornerback to play across from Janoris Jenkins.

13. New York Jets (7-9) - Sammy Watkins (WR/Clemson)

Geno Smith was terrible last week, but his main receivers were as well.  Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill combined for just two catches and 71 yards on 15 total targets.  Smith needs a legitimate offensive weapon if the Jets want to succeed.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-9) - Taylor Lewan (OT/Michigan)

The Steelers offensive line played well against Detroit, but Pittsburgh will still likely look for help across their offensive line.

15. Dallas Cowboys (7-9) - Vic Beasley (DE/Clemson)

Dallas is dealing with the potential loss of Anthony Spencer and they don't have the cap space to bring him back.  Beasley has been a terror all season, but his size may limit where he is drafted.

16. Cincinnati Bengals (8-8) - Marcus Roberson (CB/Florida)

Cincinnati has an aging Terrance Newman and an injured Leon Hall among their secondary.  Secondary is slowly becoming a need for the Bengals.

17. San Diego Chargers (8-8) - Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE/Washington)

With Antonio Gates getting older, the Chargers will need to find a new safety valve for Philip Rivers.  Seferian-Jenkins is a match up nightmare, especially in the red zone.

18. Green Bay Packers (8-8) - C.J. Mosley (MLB/Alabama)

Middle linebacker has been a need for the Packers all season.  Desmond Bishop was released before the season started and A.J. Hawk has quickly aged.  Mosley is a steal at this spot.

19. San Francisco 49ers (9-7) - Kyle Van Noy (OLB/BYU)

Once a strength of this team, San Francisco's pass rush lacks depth and it has shown throughout the season with Aldon Smith sidelined.

20. Detroit Lions (9-7) - Eric Ebron (TE/North Carolina)

Brandon Pettigrew has been phased out of the offense while Joseph Fauria has cooled off after a hot start.  The Lions need another weapon aside form Calvin Johnson on their offense.

21. Miami Dolphins (8-8) - Cyrus Kouandjio (OT/Alabama)

Even before the Jonathan Martin situation, the Dolphins needed help at offensive tackle.  Ryan Tannehill is the most sacked quarterback in the NFL, being knocked down 41 times in 10 games.

22. Arizona Cardinals (10-6) - Ra'Shede Hageman (DE/Minnesota)

Even with the Jaguars thin offensive line, the Cardinals were only able to muster a pair of sacks.  Arizona needs to upgrade their pass rush if they want to contend in the NFC West.

23. New York Giants (8-8) - Antonio Richardson (OT/Tennessee)

The Giants secondary has played better, but their offensive line is still an issue during the four game winning streak.  Richardson could man the left side while rookie Justin Pugh continues to develop on the right.

24. Baltimore Ravens (8-8) - Jordan Matthews (WR/Vanderbilt)

Baltimore needs help across from Torrey Smith.  Anquan Boldin was underrated in Baltimore and was never properly replaced.

25. Carolina Panthers (10-6) - Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (CB/Oregon)

Carolina has issues in their secondary that need to be addressed.  Chris Gamble was never properly replaced after he retired, but in a cornerback-heavy draft, they could find his replacement here.

26. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6) - Adrian Hubbard (DE/Alabama)

The game against the Broncos showed that despite having two quality pass rushers, the team still needs depth.  Hubbard could provide the team with another guy who can get to the quarterback and help take pressure off of Justin Houston and Tamba Hali.

27. Chicago Bears (10-6) - Bradley Roby (CB/Ohio State)

With both starting cornerbacks entering free agency, the Bears will need to find a replacement at the position if they cannot retain both players.

28. New England Patriots (12-4) - Kyle Fuller (CB/Virginia Tech)

Aqib Talib has played well in New England, but he could be lost to free agency in the offseason.  If he isn't retained, New England will need to find another cornerback.

29. Cleveland Browns (5-11) - Lache Seastrunk (RB/Baylor)

Cleveland has absolutely no running game, something that needs to be discovered if they expect to contend in the AFC North.

30. New Orleans Saints (10-6) - Anthony Johnson (DT/LSU)

The Saints defense played well against San Francisco, but the defense still needs to be upgraded, especially on their front seven.  Johnson can help bring an interior pass rush to New Orleans.

31. Seattle Seahawks (14-2) - James Hurst (OT/North Carolina)

Seattle's pass protection has struggled this season, especially with Russell Okung out.  A right tackle will be needed next season.

32. Denver Broncos (13-3) - Cyril Richardson (G/Baylor)

Denver's interior offensive line is in need of an upgrade.  Imagine how much better Denver's offense would be with better blocking.
