NFL Mock Draft

NFL 2014 Mock Draft 1–Updated April 1, 2014
by Jeff Ellis

First Round

Houston Texans

Blake Bortles QB UCF This is going to stay constant baring a tragic tractor accident
St. Louis Rams Jadeveon Clowney DE SC Take the BPA, look to trade Long next year as contract gets expensive
Jacksonville Jaguars Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville Want to run a safe offense, Teddy would fit well in it
Cleveland Browns Johnny Manziel QB TAM Am I the only one who thinks the negative Manziel talk is a smoke screen? Shannon figured out how to use Griffin, could do the same here. Browns might punt on a quarterback but seems unlikely.
Oakland Raiders Greg Robinson OT Auburn They have a need on the left side, talk the BPA here
Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews OT TAM Every pick has been about Matt Ryan early, get him a blindside protector
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Khalil Mack DE/OLB Take the BPA, Mack could be a force at linebacker
Minnesota Vikings Sammy Watkins WR Clemson Jennings might be done they take the BPA, and add Watkins
Buffalo Bills HaHa Clinton Dix S Dix could replace Byrd, Bills have had an affinity for ACC and SEC players early
Detroit Lions Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma UM Gilbert will help in special teams and at corner, he is an elite athlete and has great size
Tennessee Titans Anthony Barr DE/OLB Need to help the pass rush, Barr could be a monster in Horton’s system
New York Giants Eric Ebron TE UNC Giants take athletes, have a need at TE, seems like a natural fit
St. Louis Rams Mike Evans WR TAM Maybe the best WR to pair with Austin, get a red zone weapon for Bradford
Chicago Bears Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh Need a Melton replacement, Donald has plus everything but size, should be an excellent pro
Pittsburgh Steelers CJ Mosley ILB Bama Have needed a replacement for Foote for a while
Dallas Cowboys Calvin Pryor S Louisville With addition of Melton could use safety, has been a weakness since Woodson retired,
Baltimore Ravens Taylor Lewan OT Michigan Ravens have no trouble drafting red flag guys, could use a new RT, top talent but lots of character flags
NY Jets Brandon Cooks WR Oregon St Cooks would give Jets a playmaker the offense lacks, explosive speed
Miami Dolphins Zak Martin OT/G ND Need a ton of line help, even with the addition of Albert
Arizona Cardinals Ryan Shazier ILB OSU Need to replace Dansby, Shazier can play inside, top 34 defenses are built inside out, elite speed for backer
Green Bay Packers Dee Ford DE/OLB Auburn Perry can’t stay healthy, need to add another pass rusher, Ford has great tools needs to stay healthy
Philadelphia Eagles Marquise Lee WR USC Jackson is on the way out, and Kelly loves to draft guys who excelled against him at Oregon
Kansas City Chiefs Odell Beckham Jr WR LSU Reid type of receiver, small and fast, good complement to Bowe
Cincinnati Bengals Bradley Roby CB OSU Hall is never healthy, need to get younger at corner, love OSU players over the years
San Diego Chargers Darqueze Dennard CB MSU Horrible secondary need to add players, if Dennard was faster he would be a top ten player
Cleveland Browns Xavier Su’a Filo OG UCLA Have had no interest in free agency looking at line help, here they grab Filo rated as the top guard. He played left tackle all year, was voted the best lineman in the Pac 12. Could play inside or at right tackle for the Browns.
New Orleans Saints Kyle Fuller CB VA Tech Added Byrd but could use more help in the secondary
Carolina Panthers Moses Morgan OT Virgina Need so much help after FA, have to find line help first as it is harder to find left tackle types later
New England Louis Nix DT ND Wilfork was cut, need to find a big body replacement huge need for system (edit–has since been re-signed 4/1)
San Francisco Timmy Jernigan DT FSU 49ers are so deep they can draft and red shirt, Jernigan would be the BPA on the board, and could play NT he is bigger than Dorsey
Denver Broncos Cyrus Koundjio OT Bama Adding Koundjio allows them to move Franklin inside and replace Beadles and upgrade two positions
Seattle Seahawks Stephen Tuitt DE ND Tuitt has the size to be a natural fit in the Seahawks system as a run stuffing end, perfect player to take Bryant’s place
Second Round
Houston Texans Jace Amaro TE TAM New QB means new weapons, after cutting Daniels need a new TE
Washington Redskins Jimmie Ward S Northern Illinois Need help in the secondary, Ward is a rising name
Cleveland Browns Jason Verrett CB TCU Verrett has everything but size, tough, fast, strong, fits Pettine mold
Oakland Raiders David Carr QB Fresno Big time arm, if molded correctly could be a starter in the league
Atlanta Falcons Kony Ealy DE/OLB Mizzu Take the best pass rusher, and a first round talent
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin Need an upgrade at ILB, As teams watch Borland’s tapes he is rising
Jacksonville Jaguars Kelvin Benjamin WR FSU Rolle the dice on the giant receiver with questionable hands
Minnesota Vikings Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois Garoppolo is rising, could take over when Cassel falters, quick player in terms of feet and release
Buffalo Bills Troy Niklas TE ND Kept Chandler but they need another TE, Chandler cost them a game last year, Niklas is a complete TE who is 6’7”
Tennessee Titans Carlos Hyde RB OSU Need a RB with 3rd down capabilities for Whisenhut system
New York Giants Ra’Shede Hageman DT Minn Lost Joseph need tackle, Hageman is the type of athlete Giants love to draft
St. Louis Rams LaMarcus Joyner CB FSU Need help at corner, Joyner’s game tape is that of a first rounder, issue is with his measurables
Detroit Lions Kyle Van Noy OLB BYU Need to upgrade OLB, Van Noy has been a constent playermaker at BYU
Pittsburgh Steelers Davante Adams WR Fresno Need a WR, Adams isn’t the burner Wallace was but top WR on boards here, adds size
Dallas Cowboys Scott Crichton DE Oregon St Need help all over the line, Crichton is the best lineman on the board by a good margin
Baltimore Ravens Marcus Martin C USC Double dip on line and add a center they have needed since Birk retired
NY Jets Tre Mason RB Auburn Mason would be an upgrade for the Jets giving their young QB another weapon
Miami Dolphins Austin Seferian Jenkins TE Washington Need a tight end who can help out Tannehill, Jenkins caught everything throw his way, and has the size to be a red zone weapon
Chicago Bears Terrence Brooks S FCU Conte might have been the worst safety in football take a risk on the athlete Brooks
Arizona Cardinals Trent Murphy DE/OLB Stanford Need to add a pass rusher, Freeney is getting older and age is catching up
Green Bay Packers Jack Mewhort OT Mewhort at his pro day showed he could play any position on the line, could fill the Packers sudden void at center
Philadelphia Eagles Deone Bucannon S Washington Even after signing Jenkins could use another safety, plus he is another player Kelly would know
Cincinnati Bengals Jerry Attaochu OLB GA Tech Attaochu reminds me a bit of Harrison and could fill his role on the defense
San Francisco 49ers Keith McGill CB Utah Could use more help in secondary, McGill is very tall corner who they could groom
San Diego Chargers Demarcus Lawrence DE/OLB SD needs to find another pass rusher who can replace Freeney
New Orleans Saints Dri Archer Kent State Archer is to fill the void left by the Sproles trade, was a huge part of offense need someone who can step up
Indianapolis Colts David Yankey OG Need to keep Luck healthy, upgrade his line some more
Carolina Panthers Marcus Roberson CB Florida Grab a corner here, was a weak position before they lost Captain
San Francisco 49ers Jordan Matthews WR Vandy Big, fast, great hands, set a ton of SEC records, value pick this late
New England Patriots Gabe Jackson OG Miss St Could move Connelly back to center, and line up Yankey at guard, Need to protect Brady
Denver Broncos Yawin Smallwood ILB UCON need to replace Woodyard
Seattle Seahawks Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee Need a right tackle lost theirs in FA, Richardson has a lot of great tap, puzzled by his fall in others eyes
