2014 NFL Mock Draft

Round 1 of 2 Rounds

1 Reader Comment | Add Yours

1. HOU: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida*
Some Houston residents may be erecting billboards in support of drafting Johnny Manziel, but Bortles is the quarterback who currently projects best to the next level. Jadeveon Clowney, of course, is also an option.
2. STL: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina*
Offensive lineman may be the bigger need, but Clowney is the most talented player in the class and it would not be a surprise to see him go here. A trade with the Atlanta Falcons is also a possibility.
3. JAX: Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo
Clowney may not be available at this point, but Mack is also a master at getting to the quarterback. Speaking of quarterback, don't rule out the Jags going in that direction.
4. CLE: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson*
Watkins is the most explosive player in the draft, at least on the offensive side of the ball. Oakland may be hoping he lasts one more pick, but the Browns are not likely to be so generous.
5. OAK: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M*
The Raiders would make a splash with Watkins, but they would obviously make the most possible noise with Manziel. The franchise is in need of some life, and this also would not be a bad pick from a personnel standpoint.
6. ATL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn*
Atlanta is rumored to have interest in trading up for Clowney, but it is in desperation mode for an offensive tackle. Either Robinson or Matthews would be a great fit for the Falcons.
7. TB: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Tampa Bay could go in a number of different directions here, including linebacker Anthony Barr. Matthews as a left tackle of both the present and future, however, is tough to pass up.
8. MIN: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville*
Minnesota's quarterback quandary has long been a problem and it's safe to say Christian Ponder is not the answer. If Bridgewater is still available, the Vikings would do well to snatch him up.
9. BUF: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Lewan's stock is rising and he may even challenge Robinson and Matthews among offensive tackles. The Bills need help at many places and their front five is no exception.
10. DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State*
Detroit's main weakness is the defensive secondary. It has some solid defenders up front and skill-position stars abound on offense, so this pick makes sense.
11. TEN: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Barr could go off the board to the Falcons or Bucs, but Tennessee won't mind if that turns out not to be the case. He may be the best defensive player available aside from Clowney and Mack.
12. NYG: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
The Giants need help in the middle of their defense, both on the line and at linebacker. Donald's stock is on a serious rise right now and he looks like the best defensive tackle available.
13. STL: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
Alabama stars will be selected early and often, Clinton-Dix among them. St. Louis is good up front but lacking in the secondary, so this would be a good move with its second pick of the first round.
14. CHI: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State*
Jernigan ran out of gas during the National Championship, but his absence at least showed how important he was to Florida State's defense. He is one of the two best defensive tackles in this class.
15. PIT: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame*
Nix suffered a torn meniscus near the end of last season at Notre Dame, so he is a bit of a question mark heading into the draft. Pittsburgh won't be afraid to take a minor risk.
16. DAL: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Martin went back to Notre Dame to be a fifth-year senior instead of bolting for the 2013 draft. The Irish disappointed, but Martin had a great season and he also performed well at the Senior Bowl. His stock is without a doubt on the rise.
