I took a look at the big board from CBS sports just to see who might be available for us at 24. Here is what the top 25 of their board looks like:

1 *Jadeveon Clowney DE 1 South Carolina Jr 6-5 266 1
2 *Greg Robinson OT 1 Auburn rSo 6-5 332 1
3 Jake Matthews OT 2 Texas A&M Sr 6-5 308 1
4 *Teddy Bridgewater QB 1 Louisville Jr 6-2 214 1
5 *Blake Bortles QB 2 UCF rJr 6-5 232 1
6 *Sammy Watkins WR 1 Clemson Jr 6-1 211 1
7 Khalil Mack OLB 1 Buffalo rSr 6-3 251 1
8 *Johnny Manziel QB 3 Texas A&M rSo 6-0 207 1
9 Taylor Lewan OT 3 Michigan rSr 6-7 309 1
10 Anthony Barr OLB 2 UCLA Sr 6-5 255 1
11 Darqueze Dennard CB 1 Michigan State Sr 5-11 199 1
12 Zack Martin OT 4 Notre Dame rSr 6-4 308 1
13 *Mike Evans WR 2 Texas A&M rSo 6-5 231 1
14 *Eric Ebron TE 1 North Carolina Jr 6-4 250 1
15 *Marqise Lee WR 3 Southern California Jr 6-0 192 1
16 C.J. Mosley ILB 1 Alabama Sr 6-2 234 1
17 *Kony Ealy DE 2 Missouri rJr 6-4 273 1
18 *Louis NixInjured DT 1 Notre Dame rJr 6-2 331 1
19 *Hasean Clinton-Dix FS 1 Alabama Jr 6-1 208 1
20 Justin Gilbert CB 2 Oklahoma State Sr 6-0 202 1
21 Aaron Donald DT 2 Pittsburgh Sr 6-1 285 1
22 *Timmy Jernigan DT 3 Florida State Jr 6-2 299 1
23 *Xavier Su'a-Filo OG 1 UCLA rJr 6-4 307 1
24 *Odell Beckham Jr. WR 4 LSU Jr 5-11 198 1
25 *Calvin Pryor FS 2 Louisville Jr 5-11 207 1-2

Having a look at this, I am guessing there will be a very good player available for us at 24. I am guessing that the top 8 will all be gone pretty much guaranteed by the time we pick, so that leaves 16 players in the top 24 who have a chance to still be around when we pick.

We know that the organization doesn't think a 1st round WR will be the pick, so take out Marquise Lee and Mike Evans. Take out Anthony Barr as well as he is more of a fit in a 3-4 scheme. These guys will likely go before we pick anyways, so no worries. That leaves 12 more players to be taken, before we pick at 24:

That leaves us with a possibility of any one of these players (the remaining top 25) being available:

9 Taylor Lewan OT 3 Michigan rSr 6-7 309 1









11 Darqueze Dennard CB 1 Michigan State Sr 5-11 199 1
12 Zack Martin OT 4 Notre Dame rSr 6-4 308 1









14 *Eric Ebron TE 1 North Carolina Jr 6-4 250 1









16 C.J. Mosley ILB 1 Alabama Sr 6-2 234 1
17 *Kony Ealy DE 2 Missouri rJr 6-4 273 1
18 *Louis NixInjured DT 1 Notre Dame rJr 6-2 331 1
19 *Hasean Clinton-Dix FS 1 Alabama Jr 6-1 208 1
20 Justin Gilbert CB 2 Oklahoma State Sr 6-0 202 1
21 Aaron Donald DT 2 Pittsburgh Sr 6-1 285 1
22 *Timmy Jernigan DT 3 Florida State Jr 6-2 299 1
23 *Xavier Su'a-Filo OG 1 UCLA rJr 6-4 307 1
24 *Odell Beckham Jr. WR 4 LSU Jr 5-11 198 1
25 *Calvin Pryor FS 2 Louisville Jr 5-11 207 1-2

Eric Ebron will probably be gone anyways and probably won't be the pick since another first round TE doesn't seem likely... Also Odell Bekcham Jr won't be the pick, because, again, we have heard that first round WR isn't going to happen. I crossed these two off the list since while they may be available, they probably won't be the pick for us. So basically out of the remaining list of the top 25 every pick for us will be a good one other than 2 (Ebron and Beckham) (and with 25 players on the list when we pick at 24, that gives us one spot of leeway). Assuming that at least a couple of teams will reach for a player outside of the top 25 and we could get one of these players that everyone would be in love with: Dennard, Gilbert, Donald, Pryor, Nix, Lewan. Obviously most of these players will be gone, but ONE of them will be there for us! Go on and dream! In my opinion we are in a GREAT spot to get a great player for us who fits the team and could be considered a need. Is there any player on this list that you would hate if we picked in the first?
