Mock Draft No. 6: Jags will take Florida DT Floyd with No. 2 pick

It's time for Mock Draft No. 6.

What changes are in order? For starters, I now have the Jaguars at No. 2 taking Florida's Shariff Floyd. He might be the best player in this draft, so it would make sense.

I have Geno Smith sliding to Buffalo at No. 8. The signing of Kevin Kolb isn't about to stop the Bills from taking a quarterback.

Next week, more changes. The following week, more change.

That's what doing a mock every Monday does. It makes us have a lot of the picks right in the end.

See, I told you so.

1. Kansas City Chiefs -- Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A&M: This makes way too much sense.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida: This kid is a dominant force and they need help inside.

3. Oakland Raiders -- Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon: He would fill a major need on the outside.

4. Philadelphia Eagles -- Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama: Yes, they signed some corners, but they take another here.

5. Detroit Lions -- Eric Fisher, T, Central Michigan: Jeff Backus is retiring, so they get a replacement.

6. Cleveland Browns -- Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State: They could pair him with Joe Haden to form a nice tandem.

7. Arizona Cardinals -- Lane Johnson, T, Oklahoma: They have to upgrade at left tackle and this kid would do it.

8. Buffalo Bills -- Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: Somebody has to play the position, so Smith makes sense.

9. New York Jets -- Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah: Rex Ryan would probably see another Haloti Ngata in him.

10. Tennessee Titans -- Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU: They have to improve their outside pass rush. This kid is raw but makes sense.

11. San Diego Chargers -- Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia: The pass rush needs help and this kid made a ton of plays.

12. Miami Dolphins -- Menelik Watson, T, Florida State: They need another tackle to step in on the right side of Jonathan Martin is going to the left side.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington: They have to get somebody to play corner and a young one makes sense even if they get Darrelle Revis.

14. Carolina Panthers -- Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri: They have a big hole in the middle of their defense and Richardson can help plug it.

15. New Orleans Saints -- Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU: They take a local kid with hopes he can help their pass rush.

16. St. Louis Rams -- Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina: They added Jake Long, so now they add a powerful inside piece.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Bjoern Werner, OLB, Florida State: The Steelers can convert him to an outside 3-4 linebacker.

18. Dallas Cowboys -- Chance Warmack, G, Alabama: They have to get better inside. Warmack is a mauler.

19. New York Giants -- D.J. Fluker, T, Alabama: They have to get better play up front from their line.

20. Chicago Bears -- Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State: Even with D.J. Williams signing, this makes sense. Brown is rising up boards.

21. Cincinnati Bengals -- Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas: They need more range from the back end.

22. St. Louis Rams (From Washington Redskins) -- Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia: They lost Danny Amendola, so they take a faster version who can give them more big plays down the field.

23. Minnesota Vikings -- Datone Jones, DE, UCLA: Jared Allen can't play forever, and this kid has a ton of talent.

24. Indianapolis Colts -- Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee: Reggie Wayne isn't a kid anymore. They need help.

25. Minnesota Vikings (From Seattle Seahawks) -- Keenan Allen, WR, California: They add Greg Jennings, but now get another receiver to help the passing game.

26. Green Bay Packers -- Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State: Their line has been a trouble spot. They have to get better.

27. Houston Texans -- DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson: They have to get somebody to take the pressure off Andre Johnson.

28. Denver Broncos -- Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama: They need to improve in a big way in the middle of their defense.

29. New England Patriots -- Damontre Moore, OLB, Texas A&M: More pass rush help is always needed.

30. Atlanta Falcons -- Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State: With Dunta Robinson and Brent Grimes both gone, they have to take a corner.

31. San Francisco 49ers -- Matt Elam, S, Florida: They need a young safety to step in for the departed Dashon Goldson.

32. Baltimore Ravens -- Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: It's time to get a replacement for Anquan Boldin.
