Johnny Manziel's unique playmaking ability could be too intriguing to pass up at No. 1 overall.

The small-school label might make some teams wary, but Mack has three-down potential at outside linebacker, with the ability to bring pass rush off the edge, stand up against the run and drop seamlessly into coverage. He would be a cornerstone defensive cog for new Bucs head coach Lovie Smith, who always builds his defenses around playmaking linebackers who can multi-task and make their presence felt in a variety of ways. UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr will be the other name in the debate for Tampa Bay, but Mack's instant-impact quotient should be higher for a talented Bucs defense that's ready to win now.

The top tight end in the class, Eric Ebron could be on the rise in the next few weeks.

The Seahawks are deep enough that they won't be desperate for any particular position in the first round, but guard, defensive line and tight end are some of the more likely areas to target. But you can't rule out receiver either. Golden Tate is a free agent, Sidney Rice looks likely to be cut, and it would be nice to get another passing game weapon for quarterback Russell Wilson. Adams has NFL size and is adept at catching the ball in a crowd, with very dependable hands and a strong track record of collegiate production.
