I would love to get some comments on my Mock, also critical comments and what you honestly think about the picks. But pleeease, keep in mind that I am not a native USA born football fan, so be gentle and leave them with style and respect.

1.   Houston Texans – Blake Bortles, QB

I got ripped from some Texans fans last year for taking a QB and see your results… NOW clearly a need for Houston so the no.1 pick will be the QB position AGAIN, like so many years before.

Despite reports of a not tooooo spectacular Pro-Day I still believe he is considered by the Texans. On the other hand Clowney comes more and more to my mind as the 1st overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Previous pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB

2.   TRADE: Atlanta Falcons from St. Louis Rams (Trade Redskins 2012- RGIII) – Jadeveon Clowney, DE

GM Les Sneed came from ATL to the Rams. Knows all the Front Office people there well. I think they move it and already have a deal in place (no additional first rounders I guess), but after playing FA so slow they have to get extra picks.

Atlanta pick comes down to Clowney or Mack.

3.   Jacksonville Jaguars – Sammy Watkins, WR

For me this makes sense. Not much of an offense, your main WR is always suspended and your franchise Rushing leader is gone. Henne can play QB and to add a weapon like Watkins makes as much sense as a rookie QB.

4.   Cleveland Browns – Teddy Bridgewater, QB

Puh, the Browns are the Browns, so I never will figure out what they will do. Releasing your first round pick before drafting him is not possible so why not try another QB, this time even higher than in 2012.

Previous pick: Blake Bortles, QB

5.   Oakland Raiders – Mike Evans, WR

Same like no. 4 but some fancy moves (including the no-move for Saffold) in FA. Manziel, will not happen like predicted before FA Mock Draft. Schaub will start and throw to the other team a pick 6. Skill position is on my mind. See pick, but adding D. Jackson will change everything.

Previous pick: Johnny Manziel, QB

6.   St. Louis Rams – Greg Robinson, OT

Moved down and almost have to pick a OL with all those nasty D`s in the NFC Best. He or Matthews should make most sense. But with Fisher you never know. Look out for bad boy moves: Incocnito (knows and likes J. Long well) and the other Michigan guy, Taylor Lewan. Brrr, that would be even more 15yard penalties against the Rams in 2014.

7.   Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jake Matthews, OT

I think this is needed, because I don`t see A. Collins as a RT ad Donald Penn was cut. DE should be set so will move on with my K. Mack pick.

Previous pick: Khalil Mack, DE

8.   Minnesota Vikings – Johnny Manziel, QB

At no. 8 the Vikings admit, that they paniced with C. Ponder some years ago and choose the pick the star QB from Texas A&M. This guy will be loved in Min.

Previous pick: Darqueze Dennard, CB

9.   Buffalo Bills – Khalil Mack, DE/OLB

The talented third OL missing in this Mock, or a steal of a DE how should long be gone or a huge/speedy WR for your 2nd year QB…

I like every pick, to be honest, but hunting Tom Brady would be fun and also you can get rid of M. Williams contract after one or two years.

Previous pick: Jake Matthews, OT

10.  Detroit Lions – Justin Gilbert, CB

After FA which means the Golden Tate signing, I don`t think the Lions take a WR. Secondary was a mess in 2013 and a talented CB just fits what they need.

Previous pick: Mike Evans, WR

  • Seahawks hold off Broncos 26-20 in overtime

    SEATTLE (AP) Marshawn Lynch scored on a 6-yard TD run on the first possession of overtime and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 26-20 on Sunday in a Super Bowl rematch that lived up to expectations.

    Seattle (2-1) blew a 17-3 fourth-quarter lead, watching Denver tie the game at 20 on Peyton Manning's 26-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds left in regulation and his 2-point conversion pass to Demaryius Thomas.

    But Manning never saw the ball in overtime thanks to Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. After nearly getting sacked for a safety and throwing an interception in the fourth quarter, Wilson was brilliant in overtime. Wilson rushed for 21 yards and was 4 of 6 passing in overtime. Lynch went the final 6 yards.

    Manning led the rally for Denver (2-1) helped by a number of Seahawks mistakes.

  • Eagles hold off Redskins as brawl mars rivalry game

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) Rookie Jordan Matthews, the receiver who replaced DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia, caught two touchdown passes, and the Eagles beat Jackson and his Washington Redskins 37-34 on Sunday in a nasty game marred by a fourth-quarter brawl.

    Jackson had his own big play, an 81-yard TD that tied it at 27. But it was not enough to offset Matthews and Jeremy Maclin, whose 27-yard scoring reception gave Philadelphia (3-0) the lead. Rookie Cody Parkey's third field goal, a 51-yarder with 5:55 remaining, put the game out of reach.

    Philadelphia's Chris Polk had a 102-yard kickoff return. Kirk Cousins threw for three touchdowns for Washington (1-2).

    The game was slowed by several injuries and disrupted by a sideline brawl with about 10 minutes remaining. Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was blindsided by Chris Baker during an apparent interception return by Bashaud Breeland. Baker and Philly left tackle Jason Peters were ejected.

  • Cowboys topple Rams, tie biggest comeback ever

    ST. LOUIS (AP) Terrance Williams scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, and Bruce Carter returned an interception 25 yards for a TD on the next snap, capping the Dallas Cowboys' comeback from a 21-0 deficit to stun the St. Louis Rams 34-31 on Sunday.

    DeMarco Murray's 1-yard run late in the first half began the rally for Dallas (2-1). Dez Bryant caught a 68-yard scoring pass in the third quarter, and Carter's first career interception and touchdown came not long after he was evaluated for concussion-like symptoms on the bench.

    The comeback matched the largest in Dallas history, the other two coming in overtime in 1984 against New Orleans and 1999 against Washington. It tied the second-largest lead blown by the Rams, who slowed Murray but got burned everywhere else.

    St. Louis is 0-2 at home and was whipped 34-6 by Minnesota in the opener.

  • Estimated 7,000 fans trade in Ray Rice jerseys

    BALTIMORE (AP) More than 7,000 fans showed up to exchange their Ray Rice jerseys for those of other Ravens players during a two-day event at Baltimore's home team officials said Saturday.

    The Ravens handed out 5,595 new jerseys before running out before midday Saturday, then issued more than 2,400 vouchers for fans to pick up their jerseys once new shipments arrive in October.

    Team spokesman Kevin Byrne said the Ravens spent "six figures" on the trade-in. He declined to disclose an exact figure.

    "We anticipated over the two days getting about 5,000 people, so we got about 2,000 more," Byrne said. "We just felt it was the right thing to do, and that's why we did it."

    Byrne said the jerseys collected by the team will be given to companies that deal in scrap materials.

    "The NFL licensed jerseys are not recyclable because of certain materials in parts of the jersey, so what we're going to do is offer them to companies who deal in scrap," Byrne said. "We're not getting paid for it. We'll just give it to them, and they can do with it as they please."

    Approximately 15 percent of those who showed up had their jerseys rejected because either they were not officially licensed by the NFL or hadn't been available through the team's online or stadium store. The team offered them token gifts in exchange.

    "It's clearly an unusual time for the franchise," Byrne said. "I think the one thing that we've tried to be, historically . is that we've been transparent. So this is new territory for us. We're learning as we go."

    Fans began lining up as early as 4 a.m. on the first day of the exchange Friday. By the time gates opened at 8 a.m. on Friday, there were estimated to be more than 1,000 people in a line that stretched at least halfway around the stadium.

    The most requested jerseys, according to the team, were those of quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receiver Torrey Smith. Five other player jerseys also were available.

    Ross Sober and his 9-year-old son, Logan, of Hampstead, Md., arrived at around 9:45 Saturday to find an imposing line that stretched much of the way around the stadium.

    Still, they completed the exchange in 50 minutes, turning in two youth jerseys. Both Logan and his 12-year-old brother Griffin were hoping to land Lardarius Webb jerseys before the stock ran out.

    Still, their father was quite pleased with the process.

    "It was as rosy an event as you could hope for," Sober said. "The people at the counter where we got our voucher were smiling and happy. The guy noticed that we had a Super Bowl patch ironed on, and he ripped the patch off and gave it back to us. It was orderly, it was friendly and nobody was protesting. You couldn't ask for better."

  • Goodell: 'Same mistakes can never be repeated'

    NEW YORK (AP) More defiant than contrite, Roger Goodell announced no sweeping changes in his first public statements in more than a week of turmoil surrounding the NFL's handling of players accused of crimes.

    The commissioner was definitive about one thing: He has not considered resigning.

    Goodell was short on specifics Friday as he discussed how he would address the rash of domestic violence incidents in the league. He said the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.

    "Unfortunately, over the past several weeks, we have seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong," he said in his opening statement. "That starts with me."

    The league has faced increasing criticism that it has not acted quickly or emphatically enough. The commissioner reiterated that he botched the handling of the Ray Rice case.

    "The same mistakes can never be repeated," he said.

    Goodell said he would meet with NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith next week, and they would work with outside experts to evaluate the league's policies.

    Among the areas that will be examined is Goodell's role in discipline. The commissioner now oversees all personal conduct cases, deciding guilt and penalties.

    He will establish a committee to review NFL personal conduct, seeking experts in the area of domestic abuse and violence to serve on it. Goodell's role with such a committee was not directly addressed.

    "Nothing is off the table," he said.

    One of the key questions is how to balance the league's desire to take a stance against violent acts with the due process requirements - and the sometimes slow pace - of the legal system. Goodell indicated the league is considering becoming "engaged" in the investigation process while law enforcement is still handling its probes.

    Goodell said he believes he has the support of the NFL's owners, his bosses.

    "That has been clear to me," he said.

    The commissioner and some NFL teams have been heavily criticized for lenient or delayed punishment of Rice, Adrian Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases. Less than three weeks into the season, five such cases have made headlines.

    Vikings star running back Peterson and Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy are on a special commissioner's exemption list and are being paid while they go through the legal process. Arizona running back Jonathan Dwyer was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he can't play for the team again this season. Ray McDonald, a defensive end for San Francisco, continues to practice and play while being investigated on suspicion of domestic violence.

    Groups such as the National Organization of Women and league partners and sponsors have come down hard on the NFL to be more responsive in dealing with them. Congress also is watching to see how the NFL reacts.

    NOW President Terry O'Neill reiterated her calls for Goodell to resign.

    "NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell today did nothing to increase confidence in his ability to lead the NFL out of its morass," O'Neill said in a statement. "What Mr. Goodell doesn't seem to understand is that he should be aiming to make fundamental changes in the organization."

    Rice was initially suspended for two games. Goodell admitted more than a month later that he "didn't get it right" and announced tougher penalties for future domestic violent incidents.

    After video emerged of the assault, the Baltimore Ravens cut the star running back and the league banned him indefinitely.

    Goodell reiterated Friday that he didn't believe anybody at the NFL had seen the video before it was published by TMZ. The Associated Press reported last week that a law enforcement official says he sent the video to a league executive five months ago.

    Citing Rice's appeal of his suspension, Goodell declined to specify Friday how the player's description of what happened was "inconsistent" with what the video showed - the commissioner's reason for changing his punishment.

    The NFL asked former FBI director Robert Mueller to conduct an investigation into the league's handling of the Rice case. The law firm where Mueller is now a partner, WilmerHale, has connections to the NFL. Goodell insisted Friday that it wasn't a conflict of interest because Mueller himself has not previously worked with the league.

    Goodell acknowledged he has learned that interviewing Rice and his now-wife together is an inappropriate way to handle a domestic violence case.

    The commissioner declined to address whether any women were involved in the decision to suspend Rice for two games, but conceded that's "exactly what we're concerned about."

    "We didn't have the right voices at the table," he added.

    The NFL has since added domestic violence experts as consultants. It also announced it is partnering with a domestic violence hotline and a sexual violence resource center.

    In a memo to the clubs late Thursday, Goodell said that within the next 30 days, all NFL and team personnel will participate in education sessions on domestic violence and sexual assault.

    The league will provide financial, operational and promotional support to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

  • Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Taking stock of the 3-0 teams (Shutdown Corner)
    We're down to three undefeated teams after just three weeks. And the three undefeateds are far from flawless. The Bengals are the best of the group. Their offense has been diverse, especially with quarterback Andy Dalton playing well and running back Giovani Bernard emerging as a star. They're an impressive 3-0, yet you're forgiven if you have some reservations about completely buying in. You remember the playoffs the last three years. Then there are the Cardinals and Eagles. The Cardinals have a great coaching staff led by Bruce Arians. That's the best way to explain them overcoming their massive defensive personnel losses and winning despite having to go with Drew Stanton at quarterback. Their schemes on both sides are covering up some issues. It's hard to imagine the Cardinals being a Super Bowl contender with Stanton at quarterback (or, let'e be honest, with Carson Palmer at quarterback) but 3-0 is a great start nonetheless. The Eagles are just a strange 3-0 team. They're literally unlike any 3-0 team we've ever seen. They're the first in NFL history to go 3-0 after being down by at least 10 points in each of their first three games. They're 3-0, they also have a good coach, but do you really trust a team that allowed the Redskins and Jaguars to take double-digit leads on their home turf? All three of the 3-0 teams are in the top 10, of course, but none have cracked the top two yet. Onto the post-Week 3 power rankings: 32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3, LW: 29) Unbelievable. 31. Oakland Raiders (0-3, LW: 32) There's something to be said for moral victories. They played well. Not a win, but I bet they feel a lot better than after the Week 2 nightmare against Houston.
  • Former Steelers LB Harrison hints at return (The Associated Press)
    James Harrison is itching to get back to work. The five-time Pro Bowl linebacker posted a thinly veiled message via Instagram on Monday night hinting at an imminent return to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Harrison signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Steelers on Sept. 5, saying the organization remained like family even though Pittsburgh released him the spring of 2013 and he spent last season in Cincinnati. The Steelers (2-1) lost linebackers Ryan Shazier and Jarvis Jones to injuries in Sunday night's 37-19 win over Carolina.
  • Chargers running back Woodhead out for year (The Associated Press)
    Danny Woodhead was many things to the San Diego Chargers - running back, receiver, leader, hard worker and popular teammate. ''He means a lot to the organization,'' coach Mike McCoy said Monday. He was stopped after a 1-yard gain by diving defensive tackle Kyle Williams. I promise that.' I can't wait to get him back out here.'' Woodhead was lost one week after Ryan Mathews sprained his right knee in a victory against the Seattle Seahawks.
  • Bills flunk litmus test in losing to Chargers (The Associated Press)
    Buffalo was outplayed by the Chargers on both sides of the ball in a 22-10 loss Sunday. Buffalo's offense had difficulty mounting much of a threat in being limited to 113 yards and five first downs through the first half. The Chargers had two scoring drives that lasted 15 or more plays and ate up more than 7 minutes each. Buffalo was flagged 11 times for 101 yards, with three of those penalties negating a combined 60 yards offense.
  • Bills WR Easley's knee injury being evaluated (The Associated Press)
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills backup receiver and key special teams player Marcus Easley's status is uncertain a day after he hurt his left knee.
