2014 Mock Draft

By on January 11, 2014

The 2014 NFL draft is a few months away so I figure it’s a good time to start posting my mocks. I am sure there will be a few trades come draft day but at this point I will not add any trade ideas I have, that will be for my final draft. A lot can happen and to be honest not knowing who is going to be coaching a few of the teams makes it tough, but I am going to guess anyways.

1st Round:

1. Houston Texans: Blake Bortles, QB: UCF: Do I really think he is deserving? NOPE! But with a horrible pick for Head Coach so I assume they will follow with a horrible pick here, I would take Clowney or trade down. (photo USA Today Sports / Mark J. Rebilas)

  1. St. Louis Rams (from Washington): Jake Matthews, OT: Texas A&M: Rams need to protect Bradford, when he returns. I wouldn’t be surprised if they trade down with a team like the Raiders or the Vikings.

 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB: Louisville:  Again, another QB that I don’t think should be a top 5 pick but again teams will buy into the hype and bite on it. He had a pretty weak schedule and that really can’t be stressed enough.

 

  1. Cleveland Browns: Sammy Watkins, WR: Clemson: This dude can flat out ball! Speed, strength, hands, guts and everything else you want in a wide receiver. Putting him opposite Josh Gordon would give the Browns one of the premier receiving duos in the NFL. It doesn’t matter who the QB is these 2 guys will make them look like a Pro-Bowl QB.

 

5. Oakland Raiders: Anthony Barr, OLB/DE: UCLA: Although they could take a QB or Clowney I think they take the safe road and pick up a guy that has huge motor and no extra baggage. (photo USA Today Sports / Gary A. Vasquez)

 

  1. Atlanta Falcons: Greg Robinson, OT: Auburn: 6’5’’ 320lbs… Time to protect Matty ice a little better. Matt Ryan will have plenty of time to get the ball downfield with this wall protecting him.

 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Jadeveon Clowney, OLB/DE: South Carolina: Lovie Smith is going to get this freak and make him even better.  This defense just got really good, really fast. I think they give Mike Glennon another year to see if he actually has what it takes.

 

  1. Minnesota Vikings: Johnny Manziel, QB: Texas A&M:  Like Dr. Evil had Mini-me, Fran Tarkenton will have Johnny Manziel. I think he will end up being the next Ryan Leaf so as long as the Browns don’t draft him I’m fine.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills: Khalil Mack, OLB: Buffalo: The Bills need a nasty gemlin on defense and they get it with Mack. This guy is all over the place, forcing fumbles, sacking the QB and just hitting guys behind the line of scrimmage on regular basis is what he does.

 

10. Detroit Lions: Darqueze Dennard, CB: Michigan State: The Lions are set on Offense and their Defensive Line is stacked, so why can’t they win? Well they got rid of their coach and that was half of the problem, the other is the fact, although they can throw the ball all over the field they can’t stop anybody else from doing the same.

  1. Tennessee Titans: C.J. Mosley, ILB: Alabama: Athletic enough to play inside or outside, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and just an all-around great Linebacker. He will instantly improve the Titans defense, and they need all the help they can get.

 

  1. New York Giants: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT: Alabama: The Giants played like a bunch of Morphine addicts this last year, slow and weak, CK will bring some toughness and youth to an O-line that didn’t stop anybody. Eli was rushing passes, most of which were picked off, and they just never got in a rhythm.

  1. St. Louis Rams: Mike Evans, WR: Texas A&M: This is the real reason Johnny Football was so good. Evans is a HUGE WR with great hands, 6’5” 225lbs, have fun short DB’s, have lots of fun with that. Yes I know it’s two guys from Texas A&M being drafted in the 1st round by the same team but in all honesty, they are both better than Manziel will ever be.

  1. Chicago Bears: Louis Nix, DT: Notre Dame: Well it’s about time the Bears start playing defense again and this is a start in the right direction. They have an impressive Offense so the defensive side needs attention. Nix is big and after he heals from his injury will be NFL ready.

 

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Justin Gilbert, CB: Oklahoma State: Steelers defense is old and slow, they need to start upgrading at most positions on this side of the ball in order for Omar Epps to keep his job. Gilbert is rock solid and quick, will also help on the returns.

 

  1. Baltimore Ravens: Zach Martin, OT: Notre Dame: From Super Bowl to reality the Ravens were smacked with the fact they have a weak O-Line and need help all along it. They need to protect their grossly overpaid QB and Zack Martin will do just that.

 

  1. Dallas Cowboys: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT: Notre Dame: at 6’6’’ 312 lbs the Cowboys get the Increadible Hulk, this dude is fast, strong and smart. The Cowboys should be drafting a QB but Jerry Jones continues his bromance with the choke king Romo so they are forced to take a guy that will destroy QB in their division.

 

  1. New York Jets: Kelvin Benjamin, WR: Florida State: Sexy Rexy needs to give his new QB a few more weapons; standing 6’5” and being built like a redwood tree Benjamin will give Gino a true end zone target.

 

  1. Miami Dolphins: Marqise Lee, WR, USC: Lee and Wallace will give Tannehill the weapons he needs. It may be just enough to keep Philbin there as coach.

 

  1. Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Shazier, OLB: THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY: Shazier will bring toughness and intensity to a Defense that badly needs it. Carson Palmer had a pretty solid season and they still have Larry, so fixing the Defense is a must.

 

  1. Green Bay Packers: Eric Ebron, TE: North Carolina:  Packers need a TE, they need help on defense more but I think they just give the double check more targets to throw to and add the help on defense later in the draft.

 

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: Vic Beasley, OLB: Clemson:  The Eagles have an electrifying offense, but a lackluster defense, Beasley will give them a boost of attitude and grit on that side of the field.

 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Jason Varrett, CB: TCU: Some may think the Bengals go looking for a QB; they might, just not this early in the draft. Marvin Lewis will give Dalton the benefit of the doubt, for at least another season, or until the guy they draft later on outplays him on the practice field.

 

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: Allen Robinson, WR: Penn State: The Walrus turned around the Chiefs in dramatic fashion and he will continue to bring back the pride by giving Alex Smith more to work with, Bowe is good, Charles is GREAT but adding in Robinson adds to the mix and keeps the upward movement in place.

 

  1. San Diego Chargers: Bradley Roby, CB: THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY: This may be a little early for Roby but his speed will help him move up the draft boards and it will help the Chargers on defense. Their offense is solid; it’s just those DB’s need to have some depth.

 

  1. Cleveland Browns (from the Colts, for Trent Richardson…) What at a trade this turned out to be): Cyril Richardson, OG:  Baylor: 6’5” 340 pounds of brutality! Richardson can play OG or OT and move defenders out of the way with ease. That’s right Browns fans, a real OG that can block! Oh and that’s right no QB taken in the 1st round!

 

  1. New Orleans Saints: Taylor Lewan, OT: University of Michigan: Protecting Drew Brees is still the main key here. Lewan, although coming from a horrible school with a horrible team shined, he is a huge human being that appears to have a very bright future ahead of him.

 

  1. San Francisco 49ers: Kony Ealy, OLB/DE: Missouri: Justin Smith is 34 and not getting any younger, Ealy is an explosive end/linebacker hybrid that should fit right in with the 49ers defense.

 

  1. New England Patriots: RaShede Hageman, DT: Minnesota: The Hoodie will love this monster; he can play NT, DT or probably even DE, 6’6’’ 311 pounds and SUPER LONG ARMS! This may not be the most needed position for the Pats but he will serve his purpose.

 

  1. Carolina Panthers: Odell Beckham Jr. (3) , WR: LSU: Steve Smith is about to collect social security and they need to add youth for Cam to toss the ball to. Beckham will give Cam the ability to stretch the field and continue his rise to the top of the QB charts.

  1. Seattle Seahawks: Jace Amaro, TE: Texas Tech: Russell Wilson made a lot of magic happen, but the Defense is what makes the Seahawks so tough, that and all the PED’s their DB’s take. Giving Wilson a top notch Tight End will only help his development.

 

  1. Denver Broncos: Timmy Jernigan, DT: Florida State: Some may say the Broncos need to protect Manning, they will be protecting Manning by drafting a nasty D-lineman like Timmy (insert SOUTH PARK voice). After the Elvis mishap and the Von Miller disaster the Broncos need to retool their defense and picking up a National Champion defensive lineman will do just that.

ROUND 2:

  1. Houston Texans: Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, FS: Alabama: Ha-Ha will play the line of scrimmage, rove and attack, just what the Texans need.

 

  1. Washington Redskins: Calvin Pryor, FS: Louisville: Hard hitting, I mean brutal, like a watching a train hit a group of floppy eared white bunnies kind of brutal. Pryor can play SS or FS, he is turbo charged and he could end up going in the 1st round with a really strong showing at the combine.

 

  1. Cleveland Browns: Lamarcus Joyner, DB: Florida State: Although he is only 5’8” he may be one of the hardest hitting DB’s in the nation. He is without a doubt one of the most athletic guys in the draft. Putting him with Joe Haden and T.J.Ward will finally give the Browns a real fearsome group of DB’s.

 

  1. Oakland Raiders: Derek Carr, QB: Fresno State: It seems like every year a QB drops and I pick Carr to be that guy this year, the Raiders may look to move Terrelle Pryor in the offseason or on draft day… (HEY BROWNS….YOU MAY WANT TO GRAB HIM!) so they will be looking to add a QB, I just hope for them he doesn’t turn out to be like his brother.

 

  1. Atlanta Falcons: Kyle Von Noy, OLB: BYU: Falcons have the weapons on offense other than a RB. They may select a RB here but I think they bolster up the Defense with a guy like Von Noy; he is like a jack of all trades at the Linebacker slot.

 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Austin Serafin-Jenkins, TE: Washington: Lovie got his freak on defense now he gets his freak on offense. 6’7’’ 270 lbs and some of the best hands any tight end has in the draft.

 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tre Mason, RB: Auburn: Mason is hard runner, soft hands and loves to drive the ball north. MJD should be on his way out of town and the Jags need to reload the backfield.

 

  1. Minnesota Vikings: Xavier Su’a Filo, OG: UCLA: Since they drafted their “Franchise” QB in the 1st round they need to make sure he is protected.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills: Antonio Richardson, OT: Tennessee:  The Bills need to make sure they give EJ Manuel enough time to throw the ball and keep him off his back. Richardson was the anchor on his line and could move up in the draft but for now I have him here.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans:  Trent Murphy, DE: Stanford: Some may think the Titans go offense but I think they continue to rebuild their defense here. Murphy is smart, dependable and a work horse. Granted they may be forced to take a RB if they do in fact follow the rumors of trying to move or cut Chris Johnson.

 

  1. New York Giants: Marcus Roberson, CB: Florida: Let’s face it, the Giants need help all over but they need to make sure team can’t throw all over the field on them, Roberson will bring some much needed help and depth with the DB’s.

 

  1. St. Louis Rams: Deone Bucannon, SS: Washington State:  Adding depth in a pass first league is of high importance. Palmer, Kap, and Wilson will have fits trying to avoid Bucannon.

 

  1. Detroit Lions: Brandin Cooks, WR: Oregon State: Fast, quick and very good hands, it’s just another lethal weapon for Stafford to boost his numbers.

 

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Gabe Jackson, OG: Mississippi State: This pick could be used to continue to add youth on the defense but they need to balance the draft and make sure they protect Big Ben; Jackson is 340 pounds that doesn’t get pushed back very often.

 

  1. Baltimore Ravens: Jarvis Landry, WR: LSU: Ozzie needs to make sure his overpaid QB has targets, they gave their overpaid QB the protection he needs in the 1st round and now they add an NFL ready WR.

 

  1. Dallas Cowboys: Kyle Fuller, CB: Virginia Tech: Again, I think the Cowboys should draft a QB or trade this pick for a real head coach, but since I know neither will happen I have them adding a DB.

 

  1. New York Jets: Anthony Steen, OG: Alabama: Rex knows he needs to protect his QB, Steen comes from a Pro-style offense in Alabama and should help give Geno a little more time in the pocket.

 

  1. Miami Dolphins: Joel Bitonio, OT: Nevada: The Dolphins are sold on Tannehill and need to do everything they can to keep him upright and able to throw the ball. Bitonio is smart and has been the leader on the offensive line at Nevada; he will help fill the voids that Martin and Incognito will leave.

 

  1. Chicago Bears: Travis Swanson, C: Arkansas: Well the Bears added a brute up front on the defense and they turn around and land the best Center in the draft here.

 

  1. Arizona Cardinals: Terrance Mitchell, CB: Oregon State: DB’s are needed all over the place get them while you can!

 

  1. Green Bay Packers: Shayne Skov, ILB: Stanford: Clay Matthews finds a great Tag Team Partner here, both are smart and great at anticipating what the offense will do.

 

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: Ahmad Dixon, SS: Baylor: Chip continues to add depth where depth is needed.

 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals:  Telvin Smith, OLB: Florida State: I already told you that they will not be drafting a QB early, hold tight they might later.

 

  1. San Francisco 49ers (from K.C.): Martavious Bryant, WR: Clemson: 6’4” 220 lbs and he runs a 4.57 in the 40. Adding another depth threat and a huge end zone target for Kap is almost unfair.

 

  1. San Diego Chargers: Dee Ford, OLB: Auburn: The rebuilding of the defense continues for the Bolts.

 

  1. New Orleans Saints: Christian Jones, ILB: Florida State: Jones will help anchor the Defense with his run defense and intensity.

 

  1. Indianapolis Colts: Chris Watt, OG: Notre Dame: With no pick in the 1st round the Colts look to protect Luck with a solid pick and possible steal in the 2nd.

 

  1. San Francisco 49ers: Louchiez Purifoy, CB: Florida: Niners need the depth and Purifoy is going to thrive in this defense.

 

  1. Carolina Panthers: JuWuan James, OT: Tennessee:  Protecting the Cam man is the only way to continue to win.

 

  1. New England Patriots: Scott Crichton, DE: Oregon State: Crichton is what the Pats look for, smart, able to play more than one spot and hard working.

 

  1. Seattle Seahawks: Davante Adams, WR: Fresno State: More targets for Wilson…OH MY!

 

  1. Denver Broncos: Michael Sam, OLB: Missouri: The offense is fine, the defense needs lots of help and I think the Broncos address it all draft long.

ROUND 3:

  1. Houston Texans:  Jordan Matthews, WR: Vanderbilt.

  2. Washington Redskins: Chris Boreland, ILB: Wisconsin.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Morgan Moses, OT: Virginia

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Bishop Sankey, RB: Washington

  5. New York Jets (from Tampa): Trevor Reilly, DE: Utah

  6. Jacksonville Jags: Seantrel Henderson, OT: Miami (fla)

  7. Cleveland Browns: Carlos Hyde, RB: THE OHIO STATE UNIVERISTY

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Chris Smith, DE: Arkansas

  9. Buffalo Bills: Yawin Smallwood, ILB: Connecticut

  10. New York Giants: Telvin Smith, OLB: Florida State

  11. St Louis Rams: Will Sutton, DT: Arizona State

  12. Detroit Lions: Dion Baily, FS: USC

  13. San Francisco 49ers: (from Titans): Aaron Donald, DT: Pittsburgh

  14. Baltimore Ravens: Weston Richburg, C: Colorado State

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Terrence Brooks, FS: Florida State

  18. Chicago Bears: DaQuan Jones, DT: Penn State

  21. Green Bay Packers: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB: Georgia Tech

  22. Philadelphia Eagles:  E.J. Gaines, CB: Missouri

  23. K.C. Chiefs: Anthony Johnson, DT: LSU

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Tajh Boyd, QB: Clemson

  25. San Diego Chargers: Ego Ferguson, DT: LSU
