Sky Sports Neil Reynolds draws up his own NFL Mock Draft as he predicts which rising stars will be snapped up in the first round. Andrelton Simmons Jersey . NFL coaches have been tracking the hottest talents in recent months, but which teams will land their preferred picks?Neil is backing the two most sought-after quarterbacks to be the first two picks of the draft with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans taking Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, respectively. A profile on Florida State Quarterback, Jameis Winston 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - QB Jameis WinstonThere are some off-the-field concerns with the Florida State passer but the Bucs are desperate and need to find a franchise quarterback. Winston has all the tools to be a quality NFL player.2. Tennessee Titans - QB Marcus MariotaThe Titans would be willing to shop this pick and could very well do so. If they stay put, they have to find a face of a faceless franchise – and that is Mariota, who is a coach’s dream. A profile of former University of Southern California defensive end, Leonard Williams. 3. Jacksonville Jaguars - DE Leonard WilliamsThe Jags failed to score more than 25 points in any game in 2014 but can address offense in round two. Williams is the best defensive player available in this Draft and a wonderful chess piece.4. Oakland Raiders - WR Amari Cooper A profile on former University of Alabama wide receiver, Amari Cooper The Raiders selected their franchise quarterback last year in Derek Carr and now is the time to surround him with talent, starting with the most polished receiver in this Draft.5. Washington Redskins - OLB Dante Fowler Jr.The Redskins need help in the secondary and in upgrading their putrid pass rush. Fowler is a dynamic edge rusher in a draft filled with difference makers off the edge.6. New York Jets - OLB Randy GregoryThe Jets could go with another WR here in Kevin White but I think they need pass rush on the outside and overlook Gregory’s failed drug test at the recent NFL Combine.7. Chicago Bears - WR Kevin White A profile of former West Virginia wide receiver, Kevin White. The Bears could do with some help on defense but also need to find another WR to replace the departed Brandon Marshall. White offers some intriguing upside despite being inexperienced.8. Atlanta Falcons - OLB Shane RayThe Falcons are another team who failed to pressure quarterbacks enough last season. Ray is a high-energy player who is competitive, nasty and hates to lose!9. New York Giants - OT/OG Brandon ScherffThe Giants need help on the offensive line and Scherff, who could be a good tackle or a very good guard, is just what the doctor ordered. Tom Coughlin will love this tough and reliable blocker. A profile of former University of Louisville Cardinals wide receiver, DeVante Parker. 10. St. Louis Rams - WR Devante ParkerThe Rams might be keeping an eye on the bidding war to trade up and grab Marcus Mariota. If they stay put, they can upgrade a receiving corps devoid of a true number one target.11 .Minnesota Vikings - CB Trae WaynesThe Vikings need to find a premier wide receiver and could be in the market for a RB if they deal Adrian Peterson. But the stronger need is at corner and Waynes is the best available.12. Cleveland Browns - WR Breshad PerrimanThe Browns simply have to find a wide receiver who can be relied upon following the suspension of Josh Gordon. Perriman is big and strong but also offers blazing speed to stretch the field. Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer says you can never predict how the selection will play out 13. New Orleans Saints - OLB Vic BeasleyThe Saints need to upgrade a defense that ranked 31st in the NFL a year ago. Beasley is purely a pass rusher at this stage of his career but has all-round potential if he can get stronger.14. Miami Dolphins - OT/OG La’El CollinsI think the Dolphins look long and hard at RB Todd Gurley here, but eventually they help out QB Ryan Tannehill even further by giving him a versatile and granite-tough lineman in Collins.15. San Francisco 49ers - DT Arik ArmsteadThis would be a pick based on potential but could be worth the risk as there are not too many 6-foot-7, 300-pound defenders in the NFL. Armstead is raw but Jim Tomsula can coach him up.16. Houston Texans - NT Danny SheltonThe Texans need another WR and could very well grab one here. But I don’t think they see Vince Wilfork as a long-term option on the nose and Shelton is a space-eater who ties up blockers. A profile of former University of Georgia running back, Todd Gurley. 17. San Diego Chargers - RB Todd GurleyThere are lots of needs in San Diego and they could go D-line here but I think Gurley has the room to grow into a special NFL talent and is good value here in the middle of round one.18. Kansas City Chiefs - C Cameron ErvingThe Chiefs need another WR to play alongside Jeremy Maclin but they also need to replace Rodney Hudson at center on an embattled offensive line. The impressive Erving can play center and tackle.19. Cleveland Browns - DT Malcom BrownThe Browns are back on the clock courtesy of last year’s trade with Buffalo. The Browns need to find some defensive muscle and Brown is a rock who could be especially strong against the run.20. Philadelphia Eagles - WR Phillip DorsettMany expect the Eagles to grab safety Landon Collins in this spot, but I think the shifty and electrifying Dorsett would be a tremendous fit in Chip Kelly’s high-octane attack.21. Cincinnati Bengals - OLB Bud DupreeThe Bengals could go offensive line but they have to find a way to re-ignite one of the most stagnant pass rushes in the NFL. Dupree is an athletic phenomenon who can play all over the defense. Total Access looks at Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, two QBs everyone is expecting to go head-to-head as the No 1 NFL draft pick. 22. Pittsburgh Steelers - CB Marcus PetersThe Steelers needed help in the secondary even before Ike Taylor retired. They also need a pass rusher but I think they opt for a physical and talented cover corner in Peters.23. Detroit Lions - OT Andrus PeatThe Lions will think long and hard about finding a replacement for Ndamukong Suh at defensive tackle but they also need to do better at protecting Matthew Stafford. Peat will help on that front.24. Arizona Cardinals - CB Kevin JohnsonArizona may choose to upgrade a poor running game with Melvin Gordon here, but I think they need to add a corner in their defense after allowing Antonio Cromartie to head back to New York.25. Carolina Panthers - OT Cedric OgbuehiThe Panthers must find a long-term answer at tackle and neither comes in the form of Michael Oher or Jonathan Martin. Ogbuehi is very talented and coachable and offers intriguing upside.26. Baltimore Ravens - CB Byron JonesThe Ravens are another team that may consider Melvin Gordon here but their need in the secondary is much more pressing. The super-athletic Jones should be a model professional.27. Dallas Cowboys - RB Melvin GordonUnless they swing a trade for Adrian Peterson, I expect the Cowboys to go after a runner early in this Draft. Gordon has home-run, headline-making skills and can score from anywhere on the field. A profile of former University of Oregon Quarterback, Marcus Mariota 28. Denver Broncos - OT D.J. HumphriesWhile it will help Peyton Manning in 2015, this would not be a short term move because the Broncos need a long-term answer at RT. Humphries looks the part and plays with a mean streak.29. Indianapolis Colts - OT Ereck FlowersThis is all about protecting the franchise in QB Andrew Luck, who takes way too many hits. Flowers is a mauler and a brawler who needs refining but he could start from day one as a guard.30. Green Bay Packers - CB Jalen CollinsThe Packers could go inside linebacker here or simply take the best player on their board. But they do need help in the secondary and Collins offers a nice combination of size, speed and aggression.31. New Orleans Saints - WR Nelson AgholorWith Jimmy Graham traded away, the Saints need passing game help and it could come in the form of the fast-rising Agholor. He can be used all over the formation and also return kicks.32. New England Patriots - DT Eddie GoldmanThe Patriots would have loved Agholor and will look long and hard at remaining players in the secondary. But they also need to replace Vince Wilfork and Goldman can eat up space vs. the run.Watch the first round of the NFL Draft live on Sky Sports 1 & 3 from midnight on Thursday April 30.Not a Sky Sports subcriber?

Manchester Uniteds EFL Cup win over Northampton did little to brighten Jose Mourinhos mood on Wednesday night.The Portuguese coach railed against footballs Einsteins, who he believes have tried to delete 16 years of his managerial career.It was the latest in a long line of colourful outbursts from Mourinho, and got ESPN thinking -- who is footballs king of coaching quips?You decide...Jose Mourinho: The self-proclaimed special one has never shied away from a press conference barb. In the past he has claimed that Rafa Benitez destroyed the best team in Europe after succeeding him at Inter, and called Arsene Wenger both a voyeur and a specialist in failure.Brian Clough: The man who took two provincial rivals -- Derby County and Nottingham Forest -- to the English championship (and beyond) almost on force of character alone. Clough famously once said of his abilities: I wouldnt say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.Sir Alex Ferguson: Football, bloody hell. That was Fergusons succinct summation of Manchester Uniteds 1999 Champions League, and it has come to be used as sporting shorrthand. Nolan Ryan Angels Jersey. The former Red Devils boss also coined the phrase?squeaky-bum time to describe a tense season run-in.Jurgen Klopp: Klopp famously compared the way in which his Borussia Dortmund side played to heavy metal ahead of a clash with Arsenal. He [Arsene Wenger] likes having the ball, playing football, passes. Its like an orchestra. But its a silent song. I like heavy metal. Has also described himself as the normal one.Claudio Ranieri: The Italians press conferences were a colourful accompaniment to Leicesters surge to the title last season. Ranieri offered his players pizza for wins, compared himself to Pavarotti and even coined a new phrase -- Dilly-ding, dilly-dong!Bill Shankly: The man who turned Liverpool into the dominant force in English football in the 1960s and 70s once opined that football was much more serious than life and death. His attitude towards winning was best summed up when he said: If you are first you are first. If you are second you are nothing. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
