2014 NFL MOCK DRAFT - Round 1

1
Seahawks saw Brandon Browner head to New England and Walter Thurmond go to New York. The Seahawks will likely need to find a replacement for the other side of Sherman in the secondary. Verrett is not the type to be an interception guy, but he is a man press physical corner that will battle for every ball with WR's.

  • Oakland Raiders.png

    Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

    The Raiders traded for Matt Schaub on the cheap, but the real question is, who is their future. Do they select Derek Carr or Manziel? Bridgewater? I think the best fit for the Raiders moving forward has to be Carr. He played at lesser competition but lit it up at Fresno State. Even if Carr sits for the year, its better for the Raiders moving forward as they now have a QB they can build around. 
  • Atlanta Falcons.png

    Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

    Ideally this is where the Rams would end up due to the trade with the Falcons. They can still pick up their LT primarily because there is no set time table for Jake Long to return and Bradford needs to be protected. Robinson showed his talent for the Tigers this season excelling in pass blocking but still road grating the way for Auburn's unique running attack. Robinson is strong and agile and will handle the blind side well in the pro's. 
     
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers.png

    Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

    The Bucs have not been silent about adding a prolific WR and that could mean trading up to get one or taking one a bit early. Either way, adding Mike Evans to your WR corps certainly brings a different dimension to your offense. Evans is 6'5 and can fly but has the ability to go and grab the abll out of the air. 
  • Minnesota Vikings.png

    Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

    The Vikings need another presence in the locker room, preferrably one with confidence that he can lead a team to greatness. Johnny Manziel won the Heisman trophy as a Freshman and his confidence is through the roof as a football player. Being able to have Adrian Peterson as a safety net, the Vikings can set themselves up well with adding Manziel to be the future. 
  • Buffalo Bills.png

    Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

    As much as the Bills could use a few defensive pieces, the simply cannot pass up a weapon like Ebron for their franchise QB in E.J. Manuel. While the Bills have signed back Scott Chandler, Ebron is just more athletic and skilled as a receiver and will create mismatches for opposing defenses. 
  • Detroit Lions.png

    Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

    Chris Houston is reaching that age where he might be on the downside of his career. The Lions have said that they want to add a playmaking CB that can stand up to the taller WR's in the league, while Gilbert doesn't fit that bill, he certainly is a playmaking CB that can match up against good WR's. Gilbert is physical and athletic and has proved to be every bit of a great CB in the making. Look for the Lions to add Gilbert if he is available. 
  • Tennessee Titans.png

    Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA

    With Ken Whisenhunt now the HC, the Titans are going to a hybrid defense consisting of the 3-4/4-3 schemes. The Titans are going to look to generate a pass rush from multiple fronts and adding a prolific pass rusher like Anthony Barr would be a great start. There are a lot of questions for the Titans moving forward but this is the BPA for the Titans in this draft at this pick.  
  • New York Giants.png

    Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

    The Giants defense is predicated on the pass rush from the front 4 and with this position in the draft, the Giants could pick up a very disruptive pass rusher. Donald had a tremendous Senior Bowl and blew up at the combine to really show that he is the real deal. Perry Fewell will love scheming with Donald as a focal point. 
  • St. Louis Rams.png

    Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

    For the longest time, the Rams have been mocked a S to pair with T.J. MacDonald who was a bright spot for the Rams before he got injured. Clinton-Dix is by far the best S in the draft and the Rams are able to take him with their original pick. Having MacDonald and Clinton-Dix as your safety tandem will certainly help in their standings in the NFC West competing with offenses like the Niners, Cardinals and Seahawks. 
  • Chicago Bears.png

    Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

    The Bears lost a number of starters on their offensive line and they will need to replenish their line if they want to have a chance of being competitive in the NFC North. Peppers is now with the Packers, Melton is omcing off injury and Wooten has left as well. While they picked up Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston they should pair someone with Stephen Paea. 
  • Pittsburgh Steelers.png

    Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

    If the Steelers are going to want to keep Ben Roethlisberger healthy and upright, they are going to have to upgrade Kelvin Beachum on the blind side. Lewan did not have a great year but that was due to Michigan having a poor offense. But Lewan did have a good senior bowl and performed well at the combine to keep him in the top 3 of the elite tackles. 
     
  • Dallas Cowboys.png

    Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State

    I would love to say that the Cowboys have found their repacement for Doug Free, but its more likely that Martin will move inside initially for the Cowboys because of the lack of talent on the interior offensive line. Mackenzie Brenadeau and Ronald Leary are two weak spots at OG and they are both slotted to start. Martin would be a big upgrade on the offensive line for the Cowboys.

  • Baltimore Ravens.png

    Odell Beckham, WR, LSU

    The Ravens have been concerned with adding more weapons to their arsenal which is why they went and got Steve Smith. But is he really the answer to your WR corps. Ozzie Newsome will trust his board and still draft a WR here if there is not a S on the board. What he will get out of Beckham is a elusive YAC type WR who will catch anything near him. 
  • New York Jets.png

    Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

    The Jets have been trying to have WR's that work out like Stephen Hill and Santonio Holmes, but none just seem to stick. They brought in Eric Decker, but will he be that system guy? He doesnt have Peyton anymore. Jets will look to bring in a lot of weapons for whom ever the starting QB will be. Cooks was phenomanal last season for the Beavers and really gained national spotlight throughout the year. Jets could use his services as a deep threat and a YAC receiver. 
  • Miami Dolphins.png

    Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame

    With Jonathan Martin gone, the Dolphins have Jason Fox on the roster slotted to start, but he is not starting material. That also meant the Dolphins had to go out and grab a LT, Brandon Albert. Tannehill was sacked a LOT last season and I think that he would like to reduce that by a little bit this year. It will help his production and growth in the league if he has protection to throw. 
  • Arizona Cardinals.png

    Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn

    John Abraham is 35 years old and his back up is Lorenzo Alexander who is 32. The Cardinals could use someone opposite Sam Acho who will give the Cardinals a legitimate pass rush. Ford was pivotal in Auburn's national championship run and was exceptional during the combnine and senior bowl. 
  • Green Bay Packers.png

    Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

    The Packers are not in need of a lot of pieces but they do need a reliable pass catching TE. Amaro was one of the most productive TE's in the nation last season as he put up WR numbers. Quarless is a solid #2 but does not have that experience and ability to push to be that dependable blanket for Rodgers when he is trying to put a drive together. 
  • Philadelphia Eagles.png

    Marqise Lee, WR, USC

    With the loss of DeSean Jackson and Maclin coming off ACL injury, the Eagles will be in the market for a WR that is not as much of a me player as Jackson was, which might be the reason why Kelly didn't want him in his locker room. Lee didnt have the year that he expected but scouts still saw his talent. He can be that productive WR so long as he has a QB that can get it to him. Foles will be the man for the Eagles this season. 
  • Kansas City.png

    Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, UCLA

    I am not sure that I would want Jeff Linkenbach as the starting RG protecting Alex Smith. With the loss of Asamoah the Chiefs will certainly look to replace the RG position with a young draft pick that can come in and be a nasty presence on the line opening holes for Charles and ensuring that Smith will have time to throw. 
  • Cininnati Bengals.png

    Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

    Carlos Dunlap was given an extension which left Michael johnson expendable. The Bengals elected not to bring him back and could be looking for a new DE in the draft. With Ealy on the board, its hard to not count him as the pick for the Bengals. Ealy was productive for the Tigers this season with 7.5 sacks and 12.5 TFL's. A high motor dependable end the Bengals will need to replace Michael Johnson.

  • San Diego Chargers.png

    Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame

    The Chargers traded for Sean Lassimore for their NT position, but if Louis Nix is sitting here, the Chargers have to take him for the long term answer for their 3-4 defense. Nix can be disruptive and get into the backfield quickly. He has elite strength and quickness and is agile for a big body. He can take on multiple blockers and shoot gaps to be a distraction.
  • Cleveland Browns.png

    Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA

    The Browns are in dire need of an OG with the loss of Shaun Lauvao to the Redskins. Alex Mack is back after the Browns matched the Jags offer. John Greco and Jason Pinkston are not starters and probably need to be upgraded, and with this pick from the Colts, the Browns can pick up young top tier talent without costing a lot in free agency. 
  • New Orleans Saints.png

    Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech

    Parys Haralson signed a 1 year deal after not living up to his contract he got prior to this one. The Saints will certainly be in the market for an OLB that can rush the passer and get in the backfield. He is quick to under cut tackles and strong enough to shed blocks. Consistent motor that never stops attacking the backside to get to the QB. Certainly an upgarde over Haralson. 
  • Carolina Panthers.png

    Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

    The Panthers are seriously in jeopardy of having no WR's on the roster that anyone recognizes. They signed Jason Avant, who I think is underrated as a WR. They also slgned Jericho Cotchery and still have Tavarres King on their roster. But they dont have that true #1 WR that will have that established relationship with Cam Newton as they build for the future. Benjamin is a physical freak and while he runs a bit slow he is tall and will help blocking and going up and getting those jump balls.
