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

  • Chiefs offense hums in 41-14 rout of Patriots

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Perhaps the Kansas City Chiefs gave their neighbors across the parking lot a little bit of inspiration with their impassioned performance against New England.

    Jamaal Charles returned from an ankle injury to score three touchdowns, Alex Smith threw for 248 yards and three scores, and the Chiefs routed the Patriots 41-14 on Monday night, getting the sports week off to a smashing start in Kansas City with the Royals preparing to open the baseball playoffs on Tuesday.

    "To have back-to-back events like this, Monday night football and a home playoff game, yeah, it's special," Smith said. "Right next door to each other."

    Arrowhead Stadium, which was packed to the brim in red-clad Chiefs fans, is just a short walk from Kauffman Stadium, which will surely be packed with blue when the Royals end a 29-year playoff drought against the Oakland Athletics in the AL wild-card game.

    Several members of the Royals even showed up for the Chiefs-Patriots game, including starting pitcher James Shields, drawing huge roars when they were shown on the big screens. And some of the Chiefs said they were thinking about returning the favor, including wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

    Regardless, the Chiefs will be able to spend Tuesday in a celebratory mood.

    They held the Patriots' Tom Brady to 159 yards passing and a touchdown, picking him off twice and returning one for a touchdown. Brady was also strip-sacked by Tamba Hali to set up a Chiefs field goal, capping off a miserable night for the two-time NFL MVP.

    "It was just a bad performance by everybody," Brady said. "We need to make sure we never have this feeling again. We've got to figure out what we have to do better."

    The Chiefs forced the Patriots to air it out by stuffing Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley. And when Brady dropped back, their front seven ran roughshod over New England's suspect offensive line.

    It hardly helped the Patriots offense that it was trying to operate on the same night Chiefs fans were trying to reclaim the record for loudest outdoor sports venue. The record was set in the first half, when Guinness World Records noted a noise level of 142.2 decibels - breaking the mark of 137.6 that Seattle Seahawks fans set last season.

    "My ears are still ringing," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said with a smile.

    Kansas City had 303 yards of offense by halftime, the most against any Belichick-coached team in the first half of a game. That includes his years coaching in Cleveland.

    "We just never got anything going. Nothing," Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. "They just executed. They executed perfectly. We were always out of the game, it seemed."

    Here are a few of the reasons why the Patriots were thumped so soundly:

    RUN, RUN, RUN: Charles looked just fine on his sprained right ankle, running for 92 yards. He was spelled by Knile Davis, who added 107 yards on 16 carries. "We kept each other fresh," Davis said. "When he went in, he did his thing. When I went in, I did my thing."

    TENSE MOMENT: Charles briefly went to the locker room after stumbling into the end zone on his third touchdown of the game. He appeared to grab his hamstring, and Reid said that he received an IV, indicating that he might have been cramping. "I feel sore," Charles admitted afterward.

    BRADY'S STRUGGLES: Brady is completing just 59 percent of his passes through his first four games, his worst rate since becoming the Patriots' starter in 2001. He is also averaging less than 200 yards passing per game. "I wouldn't say we've had a very productive four games to start, but hopefully we can learn from it and understand the things that we're doing wrong," he said. "There's nobody going to dig us out of the hole. We've kind of created it for ourselves and we're going to have to look each other in the eye and see what kind of commitment we're willing to make."

    KELCE STARS: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who is quickly becoming one of Smith's favorite targets, had eight catches for 93 yards and a touchdown. "We know what we can do on our offense and our defense," Kelce said. "Our defense got a lot of turnovers today, and that was awesome to see."

    GAROPPOLO PLAYS: Rookie quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo got into the game in the fourth quarter for New England, when the outcome was already decided. He was 6 of 7 for 70 yards with a touchdown. "I am a relief pitcher, pretty much," he said, "so that is my job."

  • Bills bench quarterback Manuel, to start Orton

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) EJ Manuel is out as the Buffalo Bills' starting quarterback, and veteran Kyle Orton is in.

    Coach Doug Marrone's patience ran out following two straight losses that exposed 2013 first-round draft pick Manuel's lack of development. Marrone benched Manuel on Monday, one day after he completed less than half his passes and threw two interceptions in a loss to Houston.

    Orton will start Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. The Bills signed Orton on Aug. 30 to back up Manuel.

    "It's not all EJ's fault," Marrone said, "but we need to get better production, obviously, out of that position.

    "We have to make adjustments. We've got to make some changes because we can't keep going in the direction that we're going."

    Manuel started 14 games over the past two seasons.

    The Bills (2-2) have sputtered on offense during two straight losses. Manuel had a season-low quarterback rating of 59.4 and threw an interception to J.J. Watt that was returned for a momentum-changing touchdown Sunday during the 23-17 loss.

    Manuel has completed just 58 percent of his passes through four games this year.

    "We've got to get better in a lot of situations," Marrone said. "Just the overall offense in itself. You can start on first downs, which we're not doing a good job of. Third downs, red zone touchdowns, I think all those things that you see, again, it's not pinning it just on one player, but we all have to do a better job in those areas."

    Marrone had previously said he wanted to be patient with Manuel's development.

    Orton, a nine-year NFL veteran, spent the past two seasons in Dallas before being cut by the Cowboys in mid-July after he skipped the team's offseason workouts amid reports he was considering retirement. Orton has a 35-35 career record split among four teams since being selected by Chicago in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. He has been a starter with every team he has joined, as well as a backup, and spent two years behind Tony Romo in Dallas.

    Marrone said he made the decision to change quarterbacks, then informed general manager Doug Whaley, Manuel, and the rest of the team.

    "This decision was based on what's giving us the best opportunity to win," Marrone said. "I believe that we have a playoff-caliber team. I think that we have to play better than we did the last two weeks, though."

    While Manuel has size and mobility, his decision-making and leadership have been questioned. He acknowledged needing better command of the offense days before the season opener, and understood he had plenty to prove as a bona fide starter.

    Manuel also faced injury issues last year that hampered his development. He missed six regular-season games and went 4-6 in 10 starts.

    The Bills invested heavily to improve their offense this season in order to give Manuel every chance to succeed. They made the biggest splash in the draft when they traded next year's first-round selection to move up five spots and select dynamic receiver Sammy Watkins with the No. 4 pick. The Bills also used three of their seven selections on offensive linemen, and acquired wide receiver Mike Williams in a trade with Tampa Bay.

    Marrone said as Orton began practicing with the team that the Bills first targeted Orton early in training camp as a backup; the need for a contingency plan emerged when former backups Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel didn't show enough progress.

    Before being informed of the change, Bills players backed Manuel earlier Monday.

    "You can't put it all on him," tight end Scott Chandler said. "I think he made a lot of great plays, a lot of great throws that we didn't help him out on."

    "It's not a one-man show," running back C.J. Spiller said. "In this league, the quarterback is the focal point and the emphasis of wins and losses of teams. Obviously, he didn't have his best day, and we didn't give him a lot of help either, as well."

    NOTES: DT Kyle Williams (knee) and LB Nigel Bradham (knee) had MRIs, but a team spokesman said their status for next week is not yet known. G Chris Williams (back) has a chance to play this week, Marrone said. Williams did not make the trip to Houston. Rookie Cyril Richardson started in his place. . The Bills extended their streak of games with a sack to 17 with two against the Texans. It's the team's longest streak since it went 29 straight games with a sack from Oct. 27, 1996 to Oct. 4, 1998.

  • Cardinals running back facing 9 charges for hitting wife

    PHOENIX (AP) Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer has been formally charged with assaulting his wife during two arguments in July at their Phoenix apartment.

    An indictment publicly released late Friday charges Dwyer with felony aggravated assault and eight misdemeanors, including assault, criminal damage and disorderly conduct.

    Investigators say Dwyer broke his wife's nose with a head-butt during a July 21 argument and engaged in a dispute the following day in which he punched his wife and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who wasn't injured.

    Dwyer had been booked on Sept. 17 on suspicion of aggravated assault against his son, but the indictment doesn't charge him with any crimes related to the child.

    Prosecutors say it's not unusual for grand juries to return slightly different charges than those initially brought in a case.

    A message left for Jared Allen, an attorney representing Dwyer, wasn't immediately returned Monday.

    Police say the first dispute between the couple erupted after Dwyer's wife learned about his recent phone contact with another woman and came to believe her husband was cheating.

    The arrest came at a time when the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell are under fire over a series of violent off-the-field encounters involving some marquee players, including Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy.

    The NFL has said the Dwyer case will be reviewed under the league's personal-conduct policy. The day after his arrest, the Cardinals placed Dwyer on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he can't play for Arizona again this season.

    An Oct. 6 status conference has been scheduled for Dwyer.

  • Romo, Murray lead Cowboys past Saints 38-17

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Tony Romo wasn't trying to look like DeMarco Murray.

    The 34-year-old Dallas quarterback instead showed everyone that his surgically repaired back is coming along just fine.

    Romo threw three touchdown passes and Murray ran for a pair of scores in another 100-yard game - one of them after the longest scramble of Romo's career - in the Cowboys' 38-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night.

    The Cowboys went up 31-3 when Romo broke free on third down and slid for the first down a play before Murray ran loose in the secondary, juked Jairus Byrd at the 10 and was pushed across the goal line by Corey White.

    "It makes me feel old and the fact that I haven't gotten more than 21 yards is pretty pathetic," said Romo, whose previous long run was 17 yards despite a career known for scrambles that keep plays alive. "But other than that, it feels pretty great."

    The Cowboys kept Drew Brees and the Saints scoreless in the first half after giving up an NFL-record 40 first downs in a 49-17 blowout loss in New Orleans last year.

    Brees had touchdown passes to Josh Hill and Jimmy Graham early in the fourth quarter to get the Saints to 31-17 before the Cowboys regained control.

    The former Texas high school star threw for 340 yards, but had just 84 yards with an interception while Dallas was building a 24-0 halftime lead after he had 838 yards with seven touchdowns and no picks in his previous two games against Dallas, both wins.

    "I think we're a different team than we were last year," Romo said. "What you find is you forget it's the Saints and Drew Brees and just go play."

    Dallas reached 3-1 for the first time under coach Jason Garrett after also starting 2-1 the three previous seasons. The Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia for the NFC East lead.

    The Saints (1-3) couldn't sustain the momentum from their win over Minnesota and lost to the Cowboys in Texas for the first time since 1991.

    "There's not going to be too much good to see in this film," New Orleans coach Sean Payton said. "We're 1-3 right now, and that's about how we're playing."

    The Cowboys had 445 yards against former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who directed the scheme that led to one of the franchise's worst offensive performances in years last season, about 10 months after they fired him.

    Romo was 22 of 29 for 262 yards without an interception. He finished an 80-yard drive to open the game with a 6-yard pass to a leaping Terrance Williams in the end zone and found him again for 23 yards to put Dallas up 24-0 with 19 seconds left in the first half.

    Williams led Dallas with 77 yards receiving, and Bryant had an 18-yard scoring catch late in the fourth quarter to secure the second win for Dallas in the past 10 games against New Orleans.

    Murray's first touchdown, a 15-yard run virtually untouched around right end, was set up when Bruce Carter tipped Brees' pass and Justin Durant intercepted it at the New Orleans 39.

    The NFL's leading rusher joined Emmitt Smith as the only Dallas running backs with 100 yards in the first four games of a season, and he didn't fumble in the first quarter for the first time this season. He had 149 yards to push his season total to 534.

    "DeMarco is inspirational," owner Jerry Jones said. "Glad to see him have a game that he didn't turn the ball over. About the time New Orleans was thinking about getting some life, he'd go out and make those yards."

    Brees had 256 yards passing after halftime, and the Saints ended up with 438 total yards. But New Orleans had three turnovers to none for Dallas.

    "We had our chances in the second half," Brees said. "But at the end of the day when you look at this game, the entire game, we got beat. We got beat in every facet of it."

    After pulling to 31-17 early in the fourth quarter, the Saints had a chance to get closer, but a drive stalled and punter Thomas Morstead was tackled for a 2-yard loss while trying to throw a pass on a fake punt. That set up Bryant's clinching touchdown.

    "Hindsight's probably 20-20," Payton said. "It was on the hash mark that we wanted, and they covered it pretty well."

    NOTES: Cowboys K Dan Bailey's 51-yard field goal in the second quarter was 29th in a row. He broke Chris Boniol's franchise record of 27 last week at St. Louis. ... Saints RB Khiry Robinson had 87 yards rushing, 62 of them on a run that set up the touchdown to Hill. ... Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne left in the first quarter with a left knee injury. Jones said after the game the initial exam "was not encouraging."

  • Gore powers 49ers past Eagles to avoid 3-game skid

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers got Frank Gore involved in the offense again, and it returned them to their winning ways.

    Hard-nosed defense helped, too.

    Gore caught a career-best 55-yard touchdown and ran for 119 yards in his first 100-yard game of 2014, leading the San Francisco 49ers past Philadelphia 26-21 on Sunday to hand the Eagles their first loss.

    The 49ers (2-2) avoided their first three-game losing streak under fourth-year coach Jim Harbaugh, containing the league's top passer. Nick Foles threw two incomplete passes from the 1 in the waning moments after gaining six first downs a lengthy drive, more than the five the Eagles managed before that.

    Foles completed a 22-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin on the right sideline on that late drive. The 49ers challenged whether he had possession, but the play stood, costing the 49ers their final timeout.

    The Eagles couldn't pull off the second-half magic that had carried them in their three wins.

    On a day the 49ers gave up big plays on special teams, Gore delivered. Colin Kaepernick also threw a touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson and Phil Dawson kicked three field goals - two of at least 46 yards. Kaepernick finished 17 for 30 for 218 yards, two TDs and four sacks.

    Darren Sproles had a career-best 82-yard punt return for a touchdown, Malcolm Jenkins ran an interception 53 yards for a score for the Eagles (3-1). Brad Smith recovered Trey Burton's blocked punt against Andy Lee for a TD.

    The 49ers produced in the second half for the first time this season to give Harbaugh a win against former Pac-10 foe Chip Kelly.

    Antoine Bethea intercepted his first pass with the 49ers and forced a fumble, then the secondary kept the pressure on in the red zone. Perrish Cox made an interception with 41 seconds left to seal it.

    Gore's long scored from an off-balance throw by Kaepernick on the first play of the second quarter was the longest TD catch by a running back this season.

    But on San Francisco's next series, Kaepernick threw right to Jenkins and he broke three tackles on the way to the end zone.

    The 49ers won their first game at new Levi's Stadium, where thousands of fans skipped out at halftime.

    San Francisco outgained the Eagles 232-73 in the first half, but still trailed 21-13. Then Johnson tiptoed both feet inbounds inside the left pylon in the third quarter for a 12-yard catch, the first second-half TD of the year for San Francisco, outscored 52-3 after halftime in its first three games.

    Dawson kicked a 51-yarder before halftime, but the NFL's most-penalized team hurt itself with seven more flags for 60 yards in the first half and 10 total for 80 yards. The Eagles also had 10 penalties for 70.

    San Francisco right tackle Anthony Davis made his season debut but went down on the final play of the first quarter when Kaepernick took a sack right into the back of Davis' left knee. Tight end Vernon Davis was sidelined with a back injury early in the third quarter; he missed last Sunday's loss at Arizona with a hurting left ankle.

    Foles, who led the NFL in passer rating a year ago, was 21 for 43 for 195 yards and two interceptions.

  • Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith lead Chiefs to 41-14 rout of Patriots (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
    The Kansas City Chiefs steamrolled to a 41-14 victory over the New England Patriots on Monday night. The Patriots defense could do nothing to slow the Chiefs offense and  Tom Brady  posted one of the worst starts of his stellar career. Jamaal Charles  and  Knile Davis  led the Chiefs to 207 rushing yards and Alex Smith passed for 248 yards and three touchdowns as the Chiefs (2-2) posted a dominant showing against New England. After missing last week due to an ankle sprain, Charles return to the lineup was a boost for the Kansas City offense. Charles scored a rushing touchdown and two receiving touchdowns for the Chiefs. Smith tossed two scores to Charles and a third to  Travis Kelce  in posting a 144.4 passer rating on the night. Meanwhile, the Patriots (2-2) looked disjointed all night. New England’s offense line couldn’t open holes in the running game and Brady was hurried frequently by a strong Kansas City pass rush. Brady completed 14 of 23 passes for 159 yards with one touchdown with two interceptions – one returned 39 yards for a touchdown by  Husain Abdullah . He also fumbled possession to Kansas City following a sack by  Tamba Hali . Brady posted a passer rating of just 59.9 Monday night. It was just the 18th time in 195 regular season starts that Brady was held to a passer rating under 60. The 27 point defeat was the second largest of Brady’s career, behind only a 31-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 7, 2003. Brady was lifted following his second interception for rookie Jimmy Garappolo. Garoppolo led one touchdown drive that culminated with a 13-yard touchdown pass to  Rob Gronkowski . Garoppolo finished 6 of 7 for 70 yards and a touchdown. Brandon LaFell  was one of the few strong performers for the Patriots. He finished with six catches for 119 yards and a 44-yard touchdown reception. -- ProFootballTalk.com
