With the order set and the available underclassmen coming into view, its time to take a crack at the first ten players off the board in May.  Overall the quarterbacks will be over-drafted while the tackles and outside linebackers under-drafted.  Tony Pauline gives his opinion on how the top ten could shake down.

1Houston TexansBlake BortlesQB/Central Florida
This represents more than just the flavor of the day.  Bortles has the physical skills and mental capacity to lead a franchise at the next level as well as too much upside to pass up.  Bortles is also a Bill O’Brien type of passer and Houston is a franchise in desperate need of a signal caller.  The owner would prefer Johnny Manziel, hence the comments about trading this pick but Bortles is a clear cut favorite.
2St. Louis
Jake MatthewsOT/Texas A&M
Considering the talent on the Rams defensive line (no need for Clowney) and the need to protect Sam Bradford, Matthews is a natural fit.  The versatility to line up at left or right tackle gives them options down the road with veteran Jake Long.  The ability to start from day one makes this a no brainer.
3JacksonvilleJadeveon ClowneyDE/South Carolina
Considering Jacksonville has needed a defensive end for almost a decade coupled with the fact the team is lead by a defensive coach makes this pick rather easy.  Clowney will go a long way in helping put fannies in the seats as well.
4ClevelandTeddy BridgewaterQB/Louisville
Johnny Manziel will be a fan favorite and will get consideration at this spot but the Cleveland Browns cannot miss on this pick.  Bridgewater is the closest they’ll get to a can’t-miss signal caller.
5OaklandJohnny ManzielQB/Texas A&M
The need at the position for the Raiders coupled with the mystique Manziel brings makes this choice a natural fit.  Were there ever a modern day Ken Stabler, on the field as well as off it, his name would be Johnny Manziel.
6Atlanta Taylor LewanT/Michigan
Until further notice I’m not going to mail it in on Taylor Lewan as many others have.  His game film won’t allow me.  Atlanta needs an upgrade at the tackle position and Lewan offers exactly that on either the left or right side.
7Tampa BayGreg RobinsonT/Auburn
Robinson is not the most NFL-ready tackle at this slot but his upside is enormous.  The Bucs front office starts with a clean slate and will have time to experiment.  Khalil Mack is also a possibility here.
8MinnesotaAnthony BarrOLB/UCLA
I’m not one to pigeon hole Barr exclusively as a 3-4 OLB and feel he has too much athleticism to be one-dimensional.  Granted the Vikings still need a head coach but Barr offers great value outside of the top four picks.
9BuffaloKhalil MackOLB/Buffalo
Mack has grown by leaps and bounds at the linebacker position but he’s also a natural pass rusher that can come out of a three point stance.  That’s what he did as a sophomore for the Bulls.  This will be a popular pick for a number of reasons.
10DetroitMike EvansWR/Texas A&M
I’d love to slide a cornerback in this spot yet don’t see any worthy of being a top 20 pick, never mind being a top ten choice.  Granted I have Evans ranked higher than most but his size, dominance and upside are enormous and the fact he’ll learn from Calvin Johnson makes this very attractive.
