My Final NFL Draft Predictions

Editor's note: The Rams own the #2 pick in this year's draft because of a draft-day trade with the Washington Redskins in 2012. 

The NFL Draft is tonight, and I foresee a trade [or three] happening:

Trade #1

Houston Texans trade: #1 overall pick in this year's draft  

Atlanta Falcons trade: #7 overall pick in this year's draft, #37 overall pick in this year's draft, and a 2015 1st round pick 

Trade #2

Cincinnati Bengals trade: #24 overall pick in this year's draft 

Oakland Raiders trade: #36 overall pick in this year's draft, #67 overall pick in this year's draft, and a 2015 2nd round pick 

Trade #3

New Orleans Saints trade: #27 overall pick in this year's draft 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade: #38 overall pick in this year's draft, and a 2015 2nd round pick 

Now, without further ado, here's how I see things turning out: 

1. Atlanta Falcons [from a trade with the Houston Texans] select South Carolina Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney 

2. St. Louis Rams select Auburn Offensive Tackle Greg Robinson

3. Jacksonville Jaguars select Central Florida Quarterback Blake Bortles

10. Detroit Lions select LSU Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. 

11. Tennessee Titans sélect Notre Dame Offensive Tackle Zack Martin 

12. New York Giants select North Carolina Tight End Eric Ebron
