Stealing an idea from Yahoo! Sports' Michael Silver here. We take a break from real draft analysis and make every player in the league available in the "Ultimate Mock Draft." But while Silver goes heavy on the quarterbacks, we're taking it to a whole new level. You can't win in this league without a good one, so we're giving signal callers to the first 20 teams on the draft board. The final 12 are just screwed.
1. Kansas City Chiefs: QB Aaron Rodgers — Not even a debate; the highest-rated quarterback in NFL history.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Andrew Luck — Yeah, already. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are too old.
3. Oakland Raiders: QB Robert Griffin III — Yeah, already. Same rule applies.
4. Philadelphia Eagles: QB Cam Newton — One of the best rookie seasons in NFL history and about to break out. Built for Chip Kelly.
5. Detroit Lions: QB Tom Brady — I think Brady is worth the 10-year sacrifice from Matthew Stafford.
6. Cleveland Browns: QB Peyton Manning — Unlike when he was a free agent, Manning doesn't have choice this time.
7. Arizona Cardinals: QB Drew Brees — Not-so-shiny 2012 campaign hurt his stock a bit.
8. Buffalo Bills: QB Matt Ryan — Only 27 and coming off of the best year of his career.
9. New York Jets: QB Ben Roethlisberger — Two-time Super Bowl champion has plenty of gas left in the tank.
10. Tennessee Titans: QB Russell Wilson — League's highest-rated quarterback during the second half of 2012.
11. San Diego Chargers: QB Eli Manning — And again, a Manning without a choice this time around. Unlike in the 2004 draft.
12. Miami Dolphins: QB Joe Flacco — Defending Super Bowl MVP. Dolphins upgrade on Ryan Tannehill.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Andy Dalton — Has the makeup of a franchise quarterback and better than Josh Freeman.
14. Carolina Panthers: QB Matthew Stafford — Needs to become more consistent, but he's only 25 years old.
15. New Orleans Saints: QB Tony Romo — A steal this late, but he's no spring chicken anymore.
16. St. Louis Rams: QB Sam Bradford — Plenty happy to get their young No. 1 overall pick back here.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers: QB Philip Rivers — Another stud quarterback from that 2004 draft, but one who has struggled of late.
18. Dallas Cowboys: QB Matt Schaub — Consistently productive signal caller stays in the state of Texas.
19. New York Giants: QB Josh Freeman — Still a potentially bright future as a franchise quarterback.
20. Chicago Bears: QB Jay Cutler — They get their starter back, which is lucky at this point.
21. Cincinnati Bengals: DE J.J. Watt — They lose Andy Dalton but land the best non-quarterback in the league.
22. Washington Redskins: OLB Von Miller — No RG3 but they add the best pure pass-rusher in the league.
23. Minnesota Vikings: RB Adrian Peterson — They land the only back worthy of the first round, and he's their own in real life too.
24. Indianapolis Colts: OLB Aldon Smith — Next best pass-rusher, please.
25. Seattle Seahawks: WR Calvin Johnson — The most dominant receiver in the game, and it isn't even close.
26. Green Bay Packers: DT Geno Atkins — Best player available for Mike McCarthy.
27. Houston Texans: WR Andre Johnson — Why not start rebuilding with your best player?
28. Denver Broncos: WR Larry Fitzgerald — Poor Fitz. No quarterback in Denver either.
29. New England Patriots: TE Rob Gronkowski — Most dominant tight end in the game back in Foxboro without Brady.
30. Atlanta Falcons: DE Jason Pierre-Paul — It's either him or their home-grown boy, Julio Jones.
31. San Francisco 49ers: QB Colin Kaepernick — They'll take him back as sort of a limbo quarterback.
32. Baltimore Ravens: LB Patrick Willis — Not a bad way to replace Ray Lewis.
