First-round pick: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis
** *Pick Analysis: *"He knows he has some work to do. On the positive side, Lynch has elite arm talent and athletic ability. What he needs to work on is that he's never been in a huddle, never been under center, and never done a five-step drop let alone a seven-step drop." - Mike Mayock

First-round pick: Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia

Pick Analysis:"With his range, toughness and ability to drop down in the slot and cover man, he's like a poor man's Earl Thomas. He says he models his game after Brian Dawkins. Some say he's much like Bob Sanders. This is a dynamic playmaker." -- Mike Mayock

050316-JoeyBosa-ia.jpg

First-round pick: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

Pick Analysis:"Understand that the Chargers' base defense is a 3-4 front. Most people thought that Bosa would go to a 3-4 team. I've seen Bosa stand up and play in space, and he can do that. His playing style is most reminiscent of Everson Griffen of the Vikings." -- Mike Mayock
