2014 Mock Drafts

Jason’s Last & Final Mock Draft, 3 Rounds

Round 1
Pick Team Player Position College Analysis
1 Texans Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina The Texans have JJ Watt at one DE spot, but getting Clowney would make their D-Line seem unstopable
2 Rams Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M The Rams do have Jake Long, but he hurt his knee, with an ACL injury, so this is still a need for the Rams
3 Jaguars Sammy Watkins WR Clemson The Jags have little at WR right now, especially with a pending suspension of Justin Blackmon, so it makes sense
4 Browns Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M The Browns need a QB badly, and with Watkins off the board, they take who they hope is their franchise QB in Manziel
5 Raiders Greg Robinson OT Auburn The Raiders have a need at Tackle, Donald Penn was brought in, but he isn’t the long term answer, and Robinson is just too good to pass up
6 Falcons Khalil Mack OLB/DE Buffalo The Falcons need a young pass rusher, and Mack is just that. He is dyanamic, and could play some D-End if need be
7 Buccaneers Mike Evans WR Texas A&M The Bucs traded Mike Williams a few weeks back, so this is a need
8 Vikings Blake Bortles QB UCF The Vikings need a franchise QB, and they turned down Christian Ponder’s 5th-year option, so they should be looking for a new QB, and Bortles can be that guy
9 Bills Eric Ebron TE North Carolina The Bills could use another TE to go with Scott Chandler
10 Lions Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State The Lions need a true shut down #1 CB, and Dennard has the potential to be that
11 Titans Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State The Titans need to replace Alterraun Verner, who left for Tampa Bay, so Gilbert would be a nice fit
12 Giants Louis Nix III DT Notre Dame The Giants have aging D-Tackles, so getting Nix would be a huge upgrade in the long term
13 Rams Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix FS Alabama The Rams add a solid FS in Clitnon-Dix, a good tackler
14 Bears Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh The Bears have a need at DT, and Donald has so much upside
15 Steelers C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama The Steelers finally add another solid ILB to go with Lawrence Timmons, Mosley is also versatile, can play Outside Linebacker also
16 Cowboys Calvin Pryor FS Louisville The Cowboys lost out on Eric Reid last year, but won’t make the same mistake, so they take Pryor
17 Ravens Zack Martin OT Notre Dame The Ravens take a versatile Tackle in Martin to be their RT, but he could also play Guard if need be
18 Jets Anthony Barr OLB UCLA The Jets need an OLB, especially with Calvin Pace aging, and on a short 2-year deal
19 Dolphins Jason Verrett CB TCU The Dolphins don’t have many pressing needs, but CB could be one, and Verrett is a solid player, although small, he plays much bigger than his frame
20 Cardinals Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville The Cardinals have Carson Palmer at QB, but he isn’t the future, but I believe Bridgewater can be that
21 Packers Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech The Packers need a 3rd CB, and Fuller has great size, and would be a great addition to their secomdary
22 Eagles Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU The Eagles let DeSean Jackson go, and now need to find a replacement, and I believe Beckham can be that guy
23 Chiefs Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State The Chiefs have a need at WR, and Cooks is a nice speedy WR, so this is a fit
24 Bengals Kony Ealy DE Missouri The Bengals lost Michael Johnson to Tampa Bay, and thus have a need at DE
25 Chargers Dee Ford OLB/DE Auburn The Chargers need a future OLB/DE with Dwight Freeney aging, thus this pick will make sense
26 Browns Marqise Lee WR USC The Browns have a need at WR, especially with just Josh Gordon, and Greg Little there
27 Saints Ra’Shede Hageman DT Minnesota The Saints could use a DT, as Brodrick Bunkley has had to accept a pay cut, and may not be there long term
28 Panthers Xavier Su’a-Filo OG UCLA The Panthers have needs among the O-Line, and Guard is one of them
29 Patriots Allen Robinson WR Penn State The Patriots could use another young WR
30 49ers Bradley Roby CB Ohio State The 49ers have a huge need at CB, and Roby could fill that need
31 Broncos Timmy Jernigan DT Florida State The Broncos have a need at DT, as Terrance Knighton hasn’t liven up to expectations
32 Seahawks Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame The Seahawks could use a good DE, especially if they let or lose Cliff Avril next year, so they may want to think a year ahead of time
Round 2
Pick Team Player Position College Analysis
33 Texans Derek Carr QB Fresno State The Texans need a QB badly, and Carr in this mock is here, in the actual draft I don’t see him falling this far, but if he does, this would be a great pickup
34 Redskins David Yankey OG Stanford The Redskins need help at OG, Chris Chester isn’t getting any younger, so this makes sense
35 Browns Pierre Desir CB Lindenwood The Browns have a need for another CB, and they missed on Darrelle Revis, so Desir would be a good addition
36 Raiders Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois The Raiders did trade for Matt Schaub, but he isn’t the future, so they add a talented QB, with upside
37 Falcons Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama The Falcons have a need at Tackle, and Kouandjio is a big boy, and would fit in well
38 Buccaneers Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State The Buccaneers have little talent at OLB, and Shazier would be a great pickup
39 Jaguars Bashaud Breeland CB Clemson The Jags need help at CB, and Breeland would bring a lot of upside
40 Vikings DaQuan Jones DT Penn State The Vikes need help at D-Tackle, especially with them not bringing back Kevin Williams
41 Bills DaVante Adams WR Fresno State The Bills could use another talented WR, and Adams would bring a ton of upside
42 Titans Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State The Titans did take Justin Hunter last year, but Benjamin is too good to pass on
43 Giants Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt The Giants need another WR after losing Hakeem Nicks in free agency
44 Rams Jarvis Landry WR LSU The Rams could use some WR help, and Landry would bring some speed and expsloviness
45 Lions Kareem Martin DE North Carolina The Lions need help at DE, only Ziggy Ansah appears in the long term plans
46 Steelers Lamarcus Joyner FS/CB Florida State The Steelers have a need at FS, with just Troy Polamalu set at SS, and no real FS on the team for the future
47 Cowboys Trent Murphy OLB/DE Stanford The Cowboys could use a pass rushing OLB like Murphy, who could play DE if needed
48 Ravens Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech The Ravens did re-sign Dennis Pitta, but lost Ed Dickson, so it’s a need
49 Jets Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin The Jets get a quality ILB to eventually replace David Harris
50 Dolphins Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE Washington The Dolphins get a solid TE that they need desperately
51 Bears Scott Crichton DE/OLB Oregon State The Bears add more pass rush depth with a solid DE in Crichton

53 Packers Will Sutton DT Arizona State The Packers get some needed depth along the D-Line with Sutton
54 Eagles Joel Bitonio OT Nevada The Eagles get a solid Tackle in Bitonio
55 Bengals Jimmie Ward SS Northern Illinois The Bengals need to get better at SS, Taylor Mays won’t do it for them
56 49ers Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss The 49ers have a big need at WR, and Moncrief would help fill it
57 Chargers Gabe Jackson OG Mississippi State The Chargers could use another Guard, someone with youth, and size
58 Saints Kyle Van Noy OLB BYU The Saints get a solid pass rusher at OLB in Van Noy
59 Colts Marcus Martin C USC The Colts need a Center big time, especially after Phil Costa retired
60 Panthers Cody Latimer WR Indiana The Panthers have a big need for a WR, and Latimer will help fill that need
61 49ers Marcus Smith OLB Louisville The 49ers need to add insurance at OLB, and Smith is just that
62 Patriots Keith McGill CB Utah The Pats add another CB to their secondary, even after getting Darrelle Revis
63 Broncos Chris Smith DE Arkansas The Broncos have a need at DE, they got help at DT in round 1, and now a solid DE in Smith
64 Seahawks Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame The Seahawks need someone for the future at TE, as Zach Miller isn’t the future
Round 3
Pick Team Player Position College Analysis
65 Texans Carl Bradford OLB/DE Arizona State The Texans get more help with their pass rush by taking Bradford here
66 Redskins Antoinio Richardson OT Tennessee The Redskins continue to add depth on the O-Line
67 Raiders Demarcus Lawrence DE Boise State The Raiders add some much needed depth on the D-Line
68 Falcons Christian Jones OLB/ILB Florida State The Falcons add much needed depth at the Linebacker core

79 Ravens Phillip Gaines CB Rice The Ravens also add some depth their CB core

82 Bears Cameron Fleming OT Stanford The Bears have little depth at Tackle, so this makes sense
83 Browns Paul Richardson WR Colorado The Browns continue to add WR depth
84 Cardinals Tre Mason RB Auburn The Cardinals missed on the Ryan Williams pick, but they won’t miss with Mason

Jason’s Second to Last Mock Draft, 2 Rounds

Round 1
Pick Team Player Position College Analysis
1 Texans Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina Imagine the terror and nightmares for O-Lineman if they have to face JJ Watt and Clowney, a dynamic duo in my opinion
2 Rams Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M The Rams have a need at Tackle, and Jake Long did sign a multi-year deal last offseason, but he then Tore his ACL, so it’s still a question mark
3 Jaguars Sammy Watkins WR Clemson The Jags do have Justin Blackmon, but not much else that would scare opposing defenses, thus Watkins would do just that
4 Browns Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M It’s time for  the Browns to find their franchise QB, and I believe Manziel can be that
5 Raiders Greg Robinson OT Auburn The Raiders need help at Tackle, and Robinson may have the most upside of the top tackles
6 Falcons Khalil Mack OLB/DE Buffalo Mack is a high riser, a potential #1 overall pick, and I think the Falcons make a deal to move up for Clowney, but for this mock, I won’t do trades, and thus the Falcons select the second best Defensive player in Mack
7 Buccaneers Mike Evans WR Texas A&M The Bucs have been linked to Evans for weeks, and I believe with the departure of Mike Williams to Buffalo, the Bucs need a true #2 WR, and Evans can be that for them
8 Vikings Blake Bortles QB UCF The  Vikes need a franchise QB, and I think Bortles could be that
9 Bills Louis Nix III DT Notre Dame The Bills have a need at DT, and Nix would fit in well
10 Lions Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State The Lions have a huge need at CB, and Dennard is a potential shut down CB
11 Titans Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State The Titans need to replace the loss of Alterraun Verner, and they do so wuth Gilbert
12 Giants Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh The Giants need help at DT, and Donald has really flown up draft boards
13 Rams Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix FS Alabama The Rams have a need at FS, and Clinton-Dix is my top guy, so this makes sense
14 Bears Taylor Lewan OT Michigan The Gabe Carimi experience didn’t work out well for them, and Eben Britton isn’t the answer at LT, so they take one of the most underrated players in Lewan
15 Steelers C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama The Steelers finally get there young stud at Inside Linebacker, and Mosley is versatile too, OLB is a potential spot for him also
16 Cowboys Calvin Pryor FS Louisville The Cowboys missed out on Eric Reid in 2013, but they better not make the same mikstake, so they take Pryor, a really his riser
17 Ravens Eric Ebron TE North Carolina The Ravens retained Dennis Pitta, but lost Ed Dickson, so they replace him with a better athlete in Ebron
18 Jets Anthony Barr OLB/DE UCLA The Jets need a pass rusher, and a guy who can play OLB and possibly DE, and Barr can do that
19 Dolphins Zack Martin OT/OG Notre Dame The Dolphins can use a good Tackle/Guard combo player, and Martin is just that
20 Cardinals Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville The Cardinals need to find a franchise QB, and Bridgewater has the potential, he just need to show it
21 Packers Jason Verrett CB TCU The Packers have a need at CB, and while Verrett may be small, he has heart, passion, is a good cover corner, and is a good tackler,
22 Eagles Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech The Eagles need help at CB, Cary Williams hasn’t been a real excitement
23 Chiefs Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State The Chiefs need some more weapons if they expect Alex Smith to take them to the super bowl
24 Bengals Kony Ealy DE Missouri The Bengals need DE help after losing Michael Johnson, and I don’t see Ealy being here, but in this mock, he lasts this long
25 Chargers David Yankey OG Stanford The Chargers add another top notch Guard in Yankey
26 Browns Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU The Browns add more fire power at WR with Beckham Jr.
27 Saints Ra’Shede Hageman DT Minnesota The Saints add more beef along the D-Line with Hageman
28 Panthers Allen Robinson WR Penn State The Panthers need help at WR, and Robinson brings that help
29 Patriots Marqise Lee WR USC The Pats get another top notch WR
30 49ers Dee Ford OLB Auburn With the future uncertain for Aldon Smith, the 49ers take a pass rusher, as Smith is likely to be suspended
31 Broncos Timmy Jernigan DT Florida State The Broncos add more beef on the D-Line with Jernigan, who can play Inside and Outside on the Line
32 Seahawks Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame The Seahawks could lose Cliff Avril after 2014, so they add an insurance policy in Tuitt
Round 2
Pick Team Player Position College Analysis
33 Texans Derek Carr QB Fresno State The Texans got their next top pass rusher in round 1, and now get their franchise QB in Carr
34 Redskins DaQuan Jones DT Penn State The Redskins could use so many positional help, but DT is among the top needs
35 Browns Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State The Browns got a QB, and a WR, and now get pass rush help in Shazier
36 Raiders Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois This may be a reach, and I have Garoppolo much lower on my top 300 board, but I believe the Raiders could do the usual reach pick
37 Falcons Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama The Falcons need help at Tacklem, so getting Kouandjio would be a huge score
38 Buccaneers Bradley Roby CB Ohio State The Bucs replace Darrelle Revis with Bradley Roby, not a even swap, but Roby is talented for sure
39 Jaguars Tom Savage QB Pittsburgh I am going for another reach, the Jags need a QB, and Savage is my next best QB, so this could make sense
40 Vikings Will Sutton DT Arizona State The Vikes need help at DT, especially with the return of Kevin Williams not happening
41 Bills Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech The Bills get a quality TE in Amaro and he brings so much talent, pass catching and blocking
42 Titans Trent Murphy OLB Stanford The Titans could use another pass rusher, and Murphy is one of the top left on my board
43 Giants Bashaud Breeland CB Clemson The Giants need a CB to add to their depth, and Breeland is a high riser
44 Rams DaVante Adams WR Fresno State The Rams add more weapons at WR, and hope to help Sam Bradford
45 Lions Kareem Martin DE North Carolina The Lions add some help along the D-Line with Martin
46 Steelers Lamarcus Joyner FS/CB Florida State The Steelers get a dual threat, CB and FS in Joyner

49 Jets Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State The Jets get a quality WR in Benjamin, with a ton of upside

53 Packers Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin The Packers add much needed help at ILB in Borland
54 Eagles Jarvis Landry WR LSU The Eagles get more help at WR after losing DeSean Jackson
55 Bengals Jimmie Ward SS Northern Illinois The Bengals can use an upgrade at Safety from Taylor Mays
56 49ers Marcus Roberson CB Florida The 49ers have a huge need at CB, and Roberson would fill that
57 Chargers Carl Bradford OLB Arizona State The Chargers add more depth at OLB, and another pass rusher in Bradford
58 Saints Gabe Jackson OG Mississippi State The Saints add depth at Guard
59 Colts Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss The Colts add more weapons for Andrew Luck
60 Panthers Joel Bitonio OT Nevada The Panthers need a QB protector with Jordan Gross gone, and Bitonio is a high riser
61 49ers Cody Latimer WR Indiana The 49ers have been linked to Latimer, so this pick makes sense, plus they have a need for a future stud WR
62 Patriots Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee The Pats need help at Tackle, even with Nate Solder on board, this would be a wise move, that the Patriots usually make
63 Broncos Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame The Broncos add more young weapons for Peyton Manning
64 Seahawks Xavier Su’a-Filo OG UCLA The Seahawks get a really good Guard, as it looks like James Carpenter won’t be there long term

Jason’s 2nd Post -Combine, Post Free Agency Frenzy 1 Round Mock Draft

1. Houston Texans – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

- I have been on the bandwagon that the Texans would select the best QB available, but after thinking it through, I believe Clowney brings more to the table, with him and J.J. Watt on the defensive line, then that’s a force to be reckon with.

2. St. Louis Rams – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

- The Rams need help at Tackle, Jake Long is coming off a Torn ACL, so he isn’t going to be the same player pre-Injury, so Matthews make sense, he can play Left and Right Tackle.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville

- The Jags need to start over at QB, they traded Blaine Gabbert to the 49ers for a late round pick, so now they get their real franchise QB in Bridgewater.

4. Cleveland Browns – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

- The Browns need a play maker opposite Josh Gordon, who has the potential for a 1-year suspension with another mishap.

5. Oaklannd Raiders – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

- The Raiders have a need for a young pass rusher, so Mack would fill in, and could potentially play End and OLB.

6. Atlanta Falcons – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn

- The Falcons need a legit LT, and he would make a great blind side protector for Matt Ryan.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

- The Bucs need another starter at WR after dealing Mike Williams to Buffalo for a late round pick, so Evans makes sense.

8. Minnesota Vikings – QB Blake Bortles, UCF

- The Vikes need to find the answer at QB, and I believe Bortles is that answer for them.

9. Buffalo Bills – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

- The Bills have a need for a pass rusher, and Barr can play OLB, and End in the 4-3 scheme.

10. Detroit Lions – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

- The Lions need a true #1 CB badly, and they get it in Dennard.

11. Tennessee Titans – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

- The Titans let Alterraun Verner go in free agency, and now they replace him with Gilbert, who is a potential shut down, #1 CB.

12. New York Giants – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

- I know the Giants signed Mike Patterson to a new 1-year deal, but it was for the league minimum, so Nix makes sense, as a long term starter.

13. St. Louis Rams – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

- The Rams have a need at FS, and Clinton-Dix is my top guy, so it makes sense.

14. Chicago Bears – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

- The Bears re-signed Eben Britton, but he isn’t a long term answer for them at Tackle, so Lewan will fit in, and become a long term, main stay on the O-Line.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

- The Steelers have needed to get younger at ILB, and now they do with Mosley, who can also play OLB if need be.

16. Dallas Cowboys – DE Kony Ealy, Missouri

- The Cowboys need help at DE, and Ealy is my #2 DE in the draft.

17. Baltimore Ravens – WR Marqise Lee, USC

- The Ravens did sign Steve Smith, but it’s basically 1-year deals, so adding a talented, and young WR would be an ideal move.

18. New York Jets – WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State

- The Jets are in need of a WR, afterall they cut Santonio Holmes, and Stephen Hill has been less than impressive.

19. Miami Dolphins – OG David Yankey, Stanford

- The Dolphins lost John Jerry to the Giants, and won’t be bringing back Richie Incognito, so they go out and get my top Guard.

20. Arizona Cardinals – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

- I don’t buy the injury should cause Tuitt to fall, and the Cards could ujse a future pass rushing beast at DE.

21. Green Bay Packers – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

- The Packers need a TE badly, Jermichael Finley isn’t coming back, so this makes sense.

22. Philadelphia Eagles – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

- The Eagles struck out with Nnamdi Asomougha, and Cary Williams hasn’t been impressive, so they add a nice young CB in Roby.

23. Kansas City Chiefs – WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

- The Chiefs need help at WR, and Robinson would be a nice fit.

24. Cincinnati Bengals – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

- The Bengals could use a OLB/DE, and Murphy can play both spots.

25. San Diego Chargers – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

- The Chargers are in need of another pass rusher, and Shazier is just that.

26. Cleveland Browns – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

- The Browns need a franchise QB, someone who will bring people to the stadium, and Manziel will do just that.

27. New Orleans Saints – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

- The Saints could use a DL, who can play End and Inside, so Hageman fits in well.

28. Carolina Panthers – WR Odell Beckham Jr., LSU

- The Panthers go for a replacement for Steve Smith, and get Beckham Jr., and get some needed speed.

29. New England Patriots – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina

- The Pats need another TE, Aaron Hernandez is heading for jail, and Rob Gronkowski isn’t 100%, so Ebron makes sense.

30. San Francisco 49ers – CB Jason Verrett, TCU

- The 49ers have a major need at CB, as Carlos Rogers was released, and Tarell Brown signed with Oakland, plus CHris Culliver has had his share of off the field incidents in the past month.

31. Denver Broncos – DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh

- The Broncos could use a DT, a versatile one, I believe Donald can play End and Tackle.

32. Seattle Seahawks – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State

- The Seahawks could use another big D-Lineman, and Jernigan would fit in well.

Jason’s 1st Post-Combine, Post Free Agency Frenzy 1 Round Mock Draft

1. Houston Texans – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville

The ideal move for Houston is to trade the pick away, and get more picks in return, but I still believe Bridgewater is the best QB in the draft, and best player available.

2. St. Louis Rams – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

The Rams kept Rodger Saffold after a fiasco in Oakland allowed him to return, but they still need a franchise LT, as Jake Long is coming off a Torn ACL

3. Jacksonville Jaguars – QB Blake Bortles, UCF

The Jags have done a solid job in Free Agency, and yes they kept Chad Henne, but they need the future of the franchise, and I believe Bortles can be just that.

4. Cleveland Browns – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

This is possibly the worst kept secret in the NFL, the Browns value Manziel as a franchise QB, and they need one, so Manziel fits the bill.

5. Oakland Raiders – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

The Raiders got some solid players in free agency for cheap, but still have a need at DE.

6. Atlanta Falcons – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

The Falcons have a need at OLB, and Mack is a dynamic pass rusher.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn

The Buccaneers got rid of Donald Penn, so they will need a new LT, and Robinsion is among the best in the nation.

8. Minnesota Vikings – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

The Vikings let go of Erin Henderson, who had 2 off the field arrests, so they take the best ILB in the draft in Mosley, who is also verstaile enough to play OLB if needed.

9. Buffalo Bills – DE Kony Ealy, Missouri

The Bills have a need at DE, with Mark Anderson lasting 1 year in Buffalo.

10. Detroit Lions – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

The Lions have a need at CB, and Dennard is still my Top CB.

11. Tennessee Titans – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

The Titans need a new lockdown CB, especially after losing Alterraun Verner to Tampa Bay.

12. New York Giants – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

The Giants have a need up front in the middle of the D-Line, and Nix fills that spot.

13. St. Louis Rams – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

The Rams need more help for Sam Bradford, and in an ideal world Watkins goes higher with a trade, but with this being a mock without trades, he goes here.

14. Chicago Bears – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Bears need help along the O-Line, especially after Gabe Carimi was a bust pickup.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

The Steelers lost both Jericho Cotchery, and Emmanuel Sanders, so getting a play making WR is a must.

16. Dallas Cowboys – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

The Cowboys need a pass rushing OLB, who could play some DE, so Barr makes sense.

17. Baltimore Ravens – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

The Ravens did draft Matt Elam, but he is more of a SS, so they take their future at FS, in Clinton-Dix.

18. New York Jets – WR Marqise Lee, USC

The Jets need a play making WR with the loss of Santonio Holmes.

19. Miami Dolphins – OG David Yankey, Stanford

The Dolphins lost John Jerry to the Giants, and Richie Incognito isn’t likely back, so Yankey would be a solid choice.

20. Arizona Cardinals – QB Derek Carr, Fresno State

The Cardinals are set at QB for a few years, but Carson Palmer won’t be there forever, so Carr makes sense.

21. Green Bay Packers – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

The Packers need a TE to replace the possible departing Jermichael Finley.

22. Philadelphia Eagles – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

The Eagles need a CB, since they could let Cary Williams go at any point.

23. Kansas City Chiefs – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

I know they added Vance Walker, but Hageman brings so much versatility.

24. Cincinnati Bengals – OLB Trent Muprhy, Stanford

The Bengals could use a good pass rusher, and Murphy could be just that, plus he could play some D-End.

25. San Diego Chargers – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

The Chargers could use a OLB if they lose Larry English.

26. Cleveland Browns – WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State

The Browns add some much needed depth after they let Davon Bess go.

27. New Orleans Saints – WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

The Saints let Lance Moore go, and could use a speedy deep threat, and Robinson could do well for them.

28. Carolina Panthers – WR Odell Beckham Jr., LSU

The Panthers lost Steve Smith, and Brandon LaFell, so they should look to add a young WR in Beckham.

29. New England Patriots – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina

The Pats need a 2nd TE to go with Rob Gronkowski, and Ebron fits the bill

30. San Francisco 49ers – CB Jason Verrett, TCU

The 49ers have a huge need at CB and WR, but Verrett is rated higher on my board, so Verrett is the pick.

31. Denver Broncos – DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh

The Broncos need another solid D-Lineman.

32. Seattle Seahawks – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Seahawks do need to add some depth at DE, and Tuitt would fit the bill.

Jason’s 1st 3 Round 2014 NFL Mock Draft, Pre-Combine

1. Houston Texans – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville

The Texans need a new beginning at QB, and Bridgewater is my top QB in this years draft class.

2. St. Louis Rams – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

The Rams have a need at Tackle, as Jake Long tore his ACL, and Rodger Safold is a free agent, so getting a Tackle who can play both Left & Right Tackle is a great pick.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars – QB Blake Bortles, UCF

The Jags could go a few ways with this pick, but ultimately I think QB is their biggest need, and Bortles has so much upside.

4. Cleveland Browns – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

The Browns need a new QB, and Brandon Weeden, who asked for a trade, is clearly not the franchise QB, so Manziel seems to fit the mold better.

5. Oakland Raiders – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

The Raiders may need a DE if Lamarr Houston departs as a free agent, but heck, they could use another pass rusher anyway, so Clowney makes sense.

6. Atlanta Falcons – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

The Falcons need more pass rush help, and they cut ties with Stephen Nicholas, so there is a spot available in Atlanta for Barr.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn

The Bucs need to find a true LT, and Robinson fits the mold.

8. Minnesota Vikings – QB Derek Carr, Fresno State

I believe the Vikings will find their franchise QB in this years draft, and I believe Carr has the potential to be just that.

9. Buffalo Bills – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Bills need another DE to go with Mario Williams, as Mark Anderson didn’t work out, after being cut just after 1 season in Buffalo.

10. Detroit Lions – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

The Lions need a true #1, shut down Cornerback, and Dennard is just that.

11. Tennessee Titans – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

The Titans could use a OLB, as they may let Kamerion Wimbley go, who is a hybrid OLB/DE, which is what Mack could potentially do for the Titans.

12. New York Giants – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

The Giants have Shaun Rogers as a scheduled free agent, and Nix is an upgrade in my opinion, and will anchor their defense for years to come.

13. St. Louis Rams – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

The Rams finally find that true #1 WR in Watkins. In reality, Watkins won’t fall this far, but without trades, this is where he ends up falling to.

14. Chicago Bears – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

The Bears need to replace Brian Urlacher, who retired last offseason, and Mosley is a fast, and versatile linebacker, can play Inside and Outisde if need be.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Steelers need to find a solution at LT, and Lewan seems to the right choice.

16. Dallas Cowboys – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

The Cowboys screwed up by not picking Eric Reid at 18 last year, when they decided to take Terrence Frederick at pick 31 in a trade with the 49ers, so they make the right call this time in Clinton-Dix.

17. Baltimore Ravens – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

The Ravens are in the market for another WR, so Evans makes sense, he is a big WR, with decent speed.

18. New York Jets – WR Marqise Lee, USC

The Jets will likely let Santonio Holmes go, so getting an overall better WR in Lee is a huge upgrade.

19. Miami Dolphins – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama

The Dolphins need a LT, and if they strike out in free agency, then the draft is the best place to get one, and Kouandjio is a good one.

20. Arizona Cardinals – OG David Yankey, Stanford

The Cardinals need stability at the Guard position, and Yankey is the top Guard in my opinion, so it fits.

21. Green Bay Packers – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

The Packers need to find a TE if Jermichael Finley, who is eyeing Seattle, leaves as a free agent, so Amaro makes sense.

22. Philadelphia Eagles – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

The Eagles may let Cary Williams go after only 1 season in Philly, and they struck out on Nnamdi Asomougha badly, so getting a young, shut down cornerback like Roby would be a big plus.

23. Kansas City Chiefs – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

The Chiefs need some helpn along the defensive line, especially with Tyson Jackson a pending free agent, so Hageman, who can play End or Inside, makes sense.

24. Cincinnati Bengals – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

The Bengals need help at OLB, and Murphy would fit in well in Cincy.

25. San Diego Chargers – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

Theb Chargers may need another OLB is Larry English isn’t back. But either way, this may be an upgrade.

26. Cleveland Browns – WR DaVante Adams, Fresno State

The Browns may need another WR if they let Greg Little go, or trade Josh Gordon.

27. New Orleans Saints – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

The Saints just let Jabari Greer go today, so getting a good shut down Cornerback in Gilbert is a huge plus.

28. Carolina Panthers – WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State

The Panthers have Ted Ginn Jr. as a free agent, and Steve Smith isn’t getting any younger, so getting an explosive Receiver would be a plus.

29. New England Patriots – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina

The Patriots need a new #2 TE with the loss of Aaron Hernandez to the pending jail time, so Ebron would fit the mold as a #2 TE.

30. San Fransico 49ers – WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

The 49ers need a speedy WR, and an explosive one, even if they retain Anquan Boldin, so Robinson gives them that.

31. Denver Broncos – DT Will Sutton, Arizona State

The Broncos need some d-line depth, and Terrence Knighton isn’t guaranteed to be extended, so they look for a younger play, in Sutton.

32. Seattle Seahawks – DE/DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh

The Seahawks need help along the d-line if they can’t retain Michael Bennett, and Sutton could fill in at End and Tackle.

Round 2:

33. Houston Texans – OLB Kyle Van Noy, BYU

The Texans got their QB in round 1, so they go out and get the next best pass rusher in Van Noy.

34. Washington Redskins – DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State

The Redskins don’t own a 1st round pick, the #2 overall pick, which belongs to the Rams, so they go and get one of their needs, help on the d-line, and Jones could play End, Tackle, and Nose Tackle in my opinion.

35. Cleveland Browns – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State

The Browns could use some d-line help, and Jernigan would fit in with their scheme.

36. Oakland Raiders – WR Odell Beckham Jr., LSU

The Raiders are in need of a playmaker at WR, and Beckham is just that.

37. Atlanta Falcons – DE Kony Ealy, Missouri

The Falcons need help at DE, as Osi Umyeiora isn’t getting younger, and Ealy is a monster off the edge.

38. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida

The Bucs can use help in the secondary, and Purifoy would help out well.

39. Jacksonville Jaguars – TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington

The Jags can use another top notch TE to go with Marcedes Lewis, that’s of course if they keep him, as he has a high cap figure.

40. Minnesota Vikings – WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt

The Vikings did get Cordarrelle Patterson last year, but they still need to build with their receiver core, and he would help out new franchise QB Derek Carr, and his transition to the NFL.

41. Buffalo Bills – FS Calvin Pryor, Louisville

The Bills could use another CB to help out their secondary, so Pryor makes sense, plus Jarius Byrd is a free agent to be.

42. Tennessee Titans – WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State

The Titans need help at WR, as Kenny Britt is a scheduled free agent.

43. New York Giants – CB Jason Verrett, TCU

The Giants need a CB badly, Terrell Thomas is a free agent, so getting a young, talentted Corner is a need.

44. St. Louis Rams – CB Marcus Roberson, Florida

The Rams can use extra help at CB, so Roberson would fit in well.

45. Detroit Lions – WR Donte Moncrief, Ole Miss

The Lions need a WR with Nate Burleson a question mark to be back in 2014.

46. Pittsburgh Steelers – ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford

The Steelers need to find a young, tackling machine ILB, and Skov is just that.

47. Baltimore Ravens – CB Vic Hampton, South Carolina

The Ravens need another CB after losing Cary Williams in free agency last offseason.

48. Dallas Cowboys – OT Zack Martin, Notre Dame

The Cowboys have issues at Tackle, so getting a good, solid young Tackle would help along ways.

49. New York Jets – OLB Dee Ford, Auburn

The Jets have a need at OLB with Calvin Pace not likely back. So Ford make sense as a pass rusher off the edge.

50. Miami Dolphins – FS Lamarcus Joyner, Florida State

The Dolphins need some help in the secondary, and Joyner can help at FS and CB.

51. Chicago Bears – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee

The Gabe Carimi pick didn’t work out well for them, trading him after just 2 seasons, so getting a good Tackle makes sense.

52. Arizona Cardinals – QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois

The Cardinals need a future QB, and I believe Garoppolo could be the answer.

53. Green Bay Packers – WR Paul Richardson, Colorado

The Packers may need a WR, as James Jones may not be back.

54. Philadelphia Eagles – ILB Chris Borland, Wisconsin

The Eagles will need a ILB if they do cut DeMeco Ryans.

55. Cincinnati Bengals – DE Scott Crichton, Oregon State

The Bengals will need a DE, as it’s been said they won’t bring back Michael Johnson.

56. San Francisco 49ers – CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood

The 49ers need a CB badly, especially if they lose Tarell Brown, so Desir is a highb riser, and fits well.

57. San Diego Chargers – OG Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State

The Chargers need a OG, as they lost Louis Vasquez in free agency last offseason.

58. New Orleans Saints – OT Morgan Moses, Virginia

The Saints need a Tackle badly, and Moses would help fill in right away.

59. Indianapolis Colts – DE Kareem Martin, North Carolina

The Colts could use help at DE, and Martin is a pure sack machine, and pass rusher.

60. Carolina Panthers – SS Dion Bailey, USC

The Panthers need helpn at DB, and Bailey will surely help fill in.

61. San Francisco 49ers – SS Craig Loston, LSU

The 49ers will have a huge need if they don’t get back Donte Whitner.

62. New England Patriots – OLB Carl Bradford, Arizona State

The Pats need to get younger on the Linebacking core, and Bradford will help with that.

63. Denver Broncos – SS Ahmad Dixon, Baylor

The Broncos need some future help ay Safety, and Dixon will help a ton.

64. Seattle Seahawks – TE Troy Niklas, Notre Dame

The Seahawks need another TE, especially if they cut ties with Zach Miller.

Round 3:

65. Houston Texans – OG Xaier Su’a-Filo, UCLA

The Texans add more depth to their offensive line with this pick.

66. Washington Redskins – WR Martavis Bryant, Clemson

The Redskins have both Josh Morgan, and Santana Moss as free agents, so WR is a big need.

67. Oakland Raiders – SS Deone Buchannon, Washington

The Raiders need help at Safety, and get it with Buchannon.

68. Atlanta Falcons – OG Cyril Richardson, Baylor

The Falcons need a Guard to add to their depth.

69. New York Jets – RB Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona

The Jets need help at RB, as none of their back really stepped up in 2013.

70. Jacksonville Jaguars – DT Ego Ferguson, LSU

I believe the Jags could use a big DT.

71. Cleveland Browns – SS Jimmie Ward, Northern Illinois

The Browns have T.J. Ward as a free agent, so they need a solid safety, who could take his place if they lose him.

72. Minnesota Vikings – CB Ricardo Allen, Purdue

The Vikings can use another solid CB, and Allen has return skills too.

73. Buffalo Bills – DT Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina

The Bills continue getting depth on the d-line with Johnson.

74. New York Giants – DE Michael Sam, Missouri

The Giants need a DE, and Sam fits the mold in my opinion.

75. St. Louis Rams – RB Carlos Hyde, Ohio State

The Rams add more depth to the RB core, with this pick.

76. Detroit Lions – RB Lache Seastrunk, Baylor

The Lions also add depth to RB core.

77. San Francisco 49ers – C Travis Swanson, Arkansas

The 49ers need a Center, as Jonathan Goodwin isn’t expected back, and Daniel Kilgore, and Joe Looney aren’t ready yet, so they bring in Swanson to compete, and possibly start right away.

78. Dallas Cowboys – OLB Christian Jones, Florida State

The Cowboys will need a OLB if Anthony Spencer isn’t back in 2014.

79. Baltimore Ravens – OT Cameron Fleming, Stanford

The Ravens add a Tackle with the possibility that Michael Oher isn’t a Raven long term.

80. New York Jets – DE Chris Smith, Arkansas

The Jets need depth at Defensive End, and Smith will give that to them.

81. Miami Dolphins – RB Bishop Sankey, Washington

The Dolphins add more depth at RB.

82. Chicago Bears – RB Andre Williams, Boston College

The Bears could cut ties with Michael Bush, so Williams could be a wise pickup.

83. Cleveland Browns – RB Tre Mason, Auburn

The Browns traded Trent Richardson, and now they get a replacement in Hill.

84. Arizona Cardinals – WR Jarvis Landry, LSU

The Cardinals could use another WR for the future, and Landry is a fast one.

85. Green Bay Packers – DT George Uko, USC

The Packers could lose BJ Raji, plus Ryan Pickett may not be back, so Uko could make sense.

86. Philadelphia Eagles – FS Ed Reynolds, Stanford

The Eagles have question marks at Free Safety, so Reynolds could help answer those question marks.

87. Kansas City Chiefs – CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech

The Chiefs need another CB after releasing Dunta Robinson.

88. Cincinnati Bengals – CB Keith McGill, Utah

The Bengals need a CB to add to their depth, and as a possible starter down the road.

89. San Diego Chargers – RB Jeremy Hill, LSU

The Chargers need more RB help, especially if they don’t hold onto Ryan Mathews for the long haul.

90. Indianapolis Colts – WR Jared Abbrederias, Wisconsin

The Colts could use more weapons to go with Reggie Wayne, and T.Y. Hilton at WR for QB Andrew Luck.

91. New Orleans Saints – ILB Yawin Smallwood, UConn

The Saints could use a ILB, as they aren’tr expected to bring back Jonathan Vilma.

92. Carolina Panthers – CB E.J. Gaines, Missouri

The Panthers need some help at CB, so Gaines makes sense.

93. New England Patriots – CB Rashaad Reynolds, Oregon State

Reynolds makes sense, especially if they lose Aqib Talib in free agency.

94. San Francisco 49ers – CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Nebraska

The 49ers need more CB depth, so this pick makes sense.

95. Denver Broncos – OLB Telvin Smith, Florida State

The Broncos could use another OLB.

96. Minnesota Vikings – ILB Lamin Barrow, LSU

The Vikings need an ILB with the release of Erin Henderson, so Barrow competes with Audie Cole, Michael Mauti, and Gerald Hodges.

Jason’s 4th 1 Round 2014 NFL Mock Draft, Pre-Super Bowl

1. Houston Texans – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville

2. St. Louis Rams -OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

10. Detroit Lions – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

11. Tennessee Titans – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

12. New York Giants – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

13. St. Louis Rams – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

14. Chicago Bears – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

15. Pittsburgh Steelers – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

16. Baltimore Ravens – WR Marqise Lee, USC

17. Dallas Cowboys – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

18. New York Jets – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

19. Miami Dolphins – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama

20. Arizona Cardinals – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

21. Green Bay Packers – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn

22. Philadelphia Eagles – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

23. Kansas City Chiefs – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee

24. Cincinnati Bengals – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

25. San Diego Chargers – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

26. Cleveland Browns – WR DaVante Adams, Fresno State

27. New Orleans Saints – WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State

28. Carolina Panthers – WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

29. New England Patriots – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

30. San Francisco 49ers – WR Odell Beckham Jr., LSU

31. Denver Broncos – OG David Yankey, Stanford

32. Seattle Seahawks – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina

Jason’s 3rd 1 Round 2014 Mock Draft (As of December, 27th, 2013)

1. Houston Texans – 2-13 – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Lousiville

The Texans need to find an answer at QB, as Matt Schaub likely won’t be there in 2014.

2. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

The Rams need to find a true LT, who could also play RT, and Matthews is that. Especially now that Jake Long has a Torn ACL, and Rodger Saffold is a pending free agent.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars – 4-11 – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

The Jags let Jeremy Mincey go with his release, so finding a stud pass rusher like Clowney would help the Jags defense.

4. Oakland Raiders – 4-11 – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

The Raiders lost Phillip Wheeler in free agency, so they replace him with the best OLB in the nation.

5. Cleveland Browns – 4-11 – QB Derek Carr, Fresno State

The Browns need a true franchise QB, and Carr just mind the right guy, and clearly Brandon Weeden is not the guy.

6. Atlanta Falcons – 4-11 – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

The Falcons need to find a true pass rushing OLB, and Mack could be the answer.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 4-11 – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Bucs need a true top OT, and Lewan would help fill a much needed vacancy.

8. Minnesota Vikings – 4-10-1 – QB Blake Bortles, UCF

Clearly neither Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel, and Josh Freeman are the answers at QB, so the Vikings get a high riser in Bortles, who just might be the answer they need.

9. Buffalo Bills – 6-9 – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Bills could use another solid pass rusher at DE, since they let Mark Anderson go in the offseason after 1 year in Buffalo.

10. Tennessee Titans – 6-9 – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

The Titans could lose Kenny Britt in free agency, and Watkins is too good to pass up.

11. New York Giants – 6-9 – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

I believe the Giants need a true DT/NT, and Nix fills that spot.

12. Detroit Lions – 7-8 – CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

The Lions really need a stud CB, and Dennard is just that.

13. Pittsburgh Steelers – 7-8 – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

The Steelers will need a WR if they lose Emmanuel Sanders in free agency, so they take my 2nd best WR in Evans.

14. New York Jets – 7-8 – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama

The Jets need to find a long term answer at RT, and Kouandjio fits that.

15. St. Louis Rams – 7-8 – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

This may be a surprise pick, but the Rams need to move on from Sam Bradford, and Manziel would help fill the role.

16. Green Bay Packers – 7-7-1 – OT Cameron Erving, Florida State

The Packers could use some help at Tackle, as Derek Sherrod has had injury issues.

17. Chicago Bears – 8-7 – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon

Both Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman are pending free agents, so getting Ekpre-Olomu makes sense.

18. Baltimore Ravens – 8-7 – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

The Ravens need to find help at ILB next to last years 2nd round pick, Arthur Brown. And Darryl Smith isn’t the answer.

19. Dallas Cowboys – 8-7 – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

The Cowboys need to find a true hard hitting Safety, and Clinton-Dix is just that.

20. San Diego Chargers – 8-7 – OG David Yankey, Stanford

The Chargers need a OG badly, and Yankey is the top guy in this years class.

21. Miami Dolphins – 8-7 – OT Greg Robinson, Auburn

The Dolphins need to find an answer at LT, ever since they lost Jake Long, and Tyson Clabo isn’t the long term answer.

22. Philadelphia Eagles – 9-6 – WR Marqise Lee, USC

The Eagles may need a WR if Jeremy Maclin isn’t back next year, so Lee makes sense.

23. Cincinnati Bengals – 10-5 – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee

The Bengals could use another top tier Tackle.

24. Cleveland Browns (f/Indianapolis Colts) – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

The Browns could use another CB to go opposite Joe Haden.

25. Arizona Cardinals – 10-5 – QB Brett Hundley, UCLA

The Cardinals need an answer at QB, and Hundley may be the right fit.

26. New Orleans Saints – 10-5 – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

The Saints may lose Parys Haralson in free agency, so picking up a pass rushing threat at OLB makes sense.

27. Kansas City Chiefs – 11-4 – OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson

The Chiefs could use another pass rusher at OLB.

28. New England Patriots – 11-4 – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

The Pats need help at CB, as Ras-I Dowling proved to be a bust of a pick.

29. San Francisco 49ers – 11-4 – WR DaVante Adams, Fresno State

I know some have Adams lower, but the 49ers need a WR, and GM Trent Baalke has been to several Fresno State games, so he is obviously interested in him.

30. Carolina Panthers – 11-4 – WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State

The Panthers need another WR threat, as Steve Smith is getting older, and injury prone.

31. Denver Broncos – 12-3 – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

The Broncos could use a good pass rusher at OLB.

32. Seattle Seahawks – 12-3 – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

The Seahawks need a DT, so Hageman makes sense.

Jason’s 2nd 1 Round 2014 Mock Draft (As of november, 26th, 2013)

1. Houston Texans – 2-9 – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville

It’s obvious that Matt Schaub isn’t the future for the Texans at QB, and if the Texans keep the #1 pick, it’s got to be Bridgewater.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – 2-9 – QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon

Mariota isn’t the most polished QB in this draft, but he may have the highest upside. And the Jags need to find a true answer at QB, as Gabbert and Henne are clearly not the answers.

3. Atlanta Falcons – 2-9 – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

The Falcons need help along the front 7, and Clowney is the best DE in this draft, and the best defensive player in this year class.

4. Minnesota Vikings – 2-8-1 – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

The Vikings have a question mark at OLB. Is it Erin Henderson, Desmond Bishop, or who? Both are on 1-year contracts, and neither have the capability that Barr has.

5. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

The Rams have an uncertainty in Rodger Saffold at RT, and Matthews has the potential to play on the right side, and left side, so it makes sense.

6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 3-8 – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Buccaneers could use another top tier Tackle, so Lewan makes sense.

7. Oakland Raiders – 4-7 – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

Might be a steal, and the Raiders lack explosiveness, and just plain great weapons, and if Terrelle Pryor is to succeed at QB, he needs better weapons.

8. Cleveland Brown – 4-7 – QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

The Browns need a franchise QB, and Manziel has the potential to be just that, and this makes sense all around.

9. New York Giants – 4-7 – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Giants need many things, but DL help is at the top, in my opinion, thus Tuitt makes sense. They lost Osi Umenyiora, so this makes a lot of sense.

10. Buffalo Bills – 4-7 – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

The Bills could use another big body DT. They have a great front 7, and great front 4. They cut Mark Anderson in the offseason, so they could have a dynamic DL in Mario Williams, Marcel Dareus, Kyle Williams, and now Louis Nix III.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers – 5-6 – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama

The Steelers have a serious need for youth along the O-Line. And Kouandjio is among the best Tackle prospects in the nation, and thus it makes sense.

12. Baltimore Ravens – 5-6 – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

The Ravens need more weapons for Joe Flacco to succeed. They traded away Anquan Boldin, who is doing great in San Francisco, so they get a dynamic WR in Evans.

13. San Diego Chargers – 5-6 – OG David Yankey, Stanford

The Chargers lost Louis Vasquez in free agency, so they have a need at Guard, and Yankey is my top OG in this class.

14. New York Jets – 5-6 – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

The Jets need youth along the linebacker core. And Mack is a dynamic play making OLB. So it makes sense to me.

15. Tennessee Titans – 5-6 – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

The Titans lost Cortland Finnegan 2 offseasons ago, and never really replaced him, so now they do so, by getting Roby, and teaming him with McCoutry.

16. Miami Dolphins – 5-6 – OT Cameron Erving, Florida State

It’s clear Tyson Clabo isn’t the answer at Tackle, so they get a young, stud LT, who has tremendous upside.

17. St. Louis Rams – 5-6 – QB Brett Hundley, UCLA

A bit of a surprise indeed. But Sam Bradford to me isn’t the future. He hasn’t produced, and is injury prone. This pick may not be the most likely, but it makes sense to me.

18. Green Bay Packers – 5-5-1 – CB Lochiez Purifoy, Florida

The Packers need secondary help, and CB is among the top needs. So Purifoy makes sense. Dynamic CB, who has speed, and good size.

19. Detroit Lions – 6-5 – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon

The Lions still need CB depth, and Ekpre-Olomu will step in as a starter right away.

20. Philadelphia Eagles – 6-5 – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

The Eagles are in need a true stud Safety. And Clinton-Dix is just that.

21. Chicago Bears – 6-5 – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

The Bears need to replace Brian Urlacher, who was clearly low-balled, and he decided to retire, so they get younger at ILB. And Mosley is just that, plus he can play Inside and Outside.

22. Dallas Cowboys – 6-5 – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

The Cowboys may need a OLB/DE if Anthony Spencer leaves after 2013. Plus Murphy is younger, and cheaper compared to Spencer.

23. Cincinnati Bengals – 7-4 – OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson

The Bengals get younger at OLB, and Beasley is a dynamic pass rusher.

24. Arizona Cardinals – 7-4 – QB Zach Mettenberger, LSU

The Cards need a franchise QB, and clearly Carson Palmer isn’t the future, but he can be a great mentor for Mettenberger.

25. Cleveland Browns (f/Indianapolis Colts) – WR Marqise Lee, USC

The Browns seem likely to trade Josh Gordon in the offseason, so this makes sense to get a play maker at WR.

26. San Francisco 49ers – 7-4 – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

The 49ers need CB help, they did lock up Tramaine Brock, but Carlos Rogers has a large cap number, and could be a cap cut, and Tarell Brown could leave for more money than the 49ers can afford.

27. Carolina Panthers – 8-3 – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee

The Panthers could use a new Tackle, with Jordan Gross not exactly spectacular.

28. New England Patriots – 8-3 – DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State

The Pats could use more D-Line help. And Vince Wilfork isn’t getting any younger.

29. Kansas City Chiefs – 9-2 – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State

The Chiefs need to replace Glenn Dorsey, who left for San Fran, and has played really good there, so it makes sense to get younger with Jernigan.

30. New Orleans Saints – 9-2 – DT Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota

The Saints need more youth among the D-Line, and Hageman is a riser, who could rise up farther come May 2014.

31. Denver Broncos – 9-2 – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

The Broncos need more talent at OLB, and a better pass rusher, plus with so much talent, this could be a luxury pick.

32. Seattle Seahawks – 10-1 – TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

The Seahawks have struck out with Zach Miller, so they get my top TE in Amaro, a play maker.

Jason’s 1st 1 Round 2014 Mock Draft (As of November, 7th, 2013)

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 0-8 – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Lousiville

The Buccaneers clearly need a franchise QB, and Bridgewater will bring that.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – 0-8 – QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon

The Jags need to find a QB who can be the future, and it’s clear neither Chad Henne or Blaine Gabbert are the answer.

3. Minnesota Vikings – 1-7 – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina

The Vikings get a steal here, while they may be hoping Mariota or Bridgewater fall to them, they take makybe the best player in Clowney to take over for the likely departing Jared Allen.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers – 2-6 – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

The Steelers need to get younger on the O-Line, and Matthews will bring toughness to the O-Line, and is my top Tackle in this years class.

5. Atlanta Falcons – 2-6 – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Falcons need a new LT with the release of Tyson Clabo, so they turn to Lewan, who is my 2nd best Tackle, and bring a big body, and strong Tackle go their O-Line.

6. Houston Texans – 2-6 – QB Tajh Boyd, Clemson

The Texans are happy to land Boyd, who is my opinion is a francise capable QB.

7. New York Giants – 2-6 – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama

The Giants need depth, and youth among the O-Line, and Kouandjio is a big body, and will be strength to the O-Line, and replace David Deihl.

8. Buffalo Bills – 3-6 – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Bills cut ties with Mark Anderson, only a year after landing him with a good sized deal. So they add a top notch DE and pass rusher to their D-Line, to go along with Mario Williams, Marcel Dareus, and Kyle Williams.

9. St. Louis Rams – 3-6 – DT Louis Nix III, Notre Dame

The Rams use this pick as sort of a luxury pick, and take my top DT/NT in Notre Dame’s Louis Nix III. He is a huge guy, who has good speed for a guy his size.

10. Baltimore Ravens – 3-5 – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson

The Ravens need more fire power at the WR spot, and Watkins has speed, and the length to be a dominant WR in the NFL.

11. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – OG David Yankey, Stanford

The Rams need Guard help. And Yankey is my top Guard, and my only OG in my top 32 rankings.

12. Oakland Raiders – 3-5 – WR Marquise Lee, USC

The Raiders get more dynamic at WR with Lee. Who may be having a down year, but my feelings are this is due to uncertainty at QB, and the lack of a good coaching staff.

13. Philadelphia Eagles – 4-5 – OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

You can never have too many pass rushers, so the Eagles take my top OLB, Anthony Barr, and add size and speed to their linebacker core.

14. Cleveland Browns – 4-5 – QB Brett Hundley, UCLA

The Browns take the QB, who they believe is their franchise QB for the future.

15. Miami Dolphins – 4-4 – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State

The Dolphins have many needs, Tackle, maybe a TE, but CB is a huge need, so they take the top Cornerback is taken here. He brings decent size, and good speed. And is a good cover corner.

16. Tennessee Titans – 4-4 – CB Marcus Roberson, Florida

The Titans take a good CB prospect. And they view him as the replacement for the departed Cortland Finnegan, who left a year ago to go to the Rams.

17. Arizona Cardinals – 4-4 – QB Zack Mettenberger, LSU

The Cards take a solid QB, who they hope is their future at QB. Mettenberger has become one of the best QBs in the nation, and because of that, he has risen up draft boards.

18. San Diego Chargers – 4-4 – OT Cameron Erving, Florida State

The Chargers take a Tackle to be their future at LT. They have no real long term answer their, so why not take a solid Tackle, who is the main protector of Florida State’s Freshman QB Jamies Winston.

19. Green Bay Packers – 5-3 – ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

The Packers could very well make A.J. Hawk a cap casualty in the offseason, so Mosley makes sense, as he can play Inside or Outside. Another possibility is a NT.

20. Chicago Bears – 5-3 – OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson

The Bears could use a solid pass rusher, and Beasley is a high riser. While I have him ranked in the top 15, I usually do the big boards on the reasoing of I believe that certain player is the best at that spot, not certainly where they will be picked.

21P. New York Jets – 5-4 – OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

The Jets need a top notch pass rushing OLB, and Mack has risen up, he is from a small MAC school, and is a solid pass rusher. Good speed, and size.

22P. Dallas Cowboys – 5-4 – OT Antonio Rchardson, Tennessee

The Cowboys could move on from Doug Free, and take one of the best Tackles in Richardson. Known as Tiny, he surely is not Tiny. He is a big boy, and a massive force for the Tennessee Volunteer football team.

23P. Detroit Lions – 5-3 – OLB Trent Murphy, Stanford

The Lions could use a versatile opass rusher, who can play End and OLB.

24P. Carolina Panthers – 5-3 – OLB Ryan Shazier, Ohio State

The Panthers could use a pass rusher, with dynamic play abilities, and good speed.

25P. Cincinnati Bengals – 6-3 – CB Louchiez Purifoy, Florida

The Bengals have had major issues at CB, Leon Hall went down this season, and they are rellying on Dre Kirkpatrick, a 2nd year player from Alabama, and veterans Adam Jones, and Terrence Newman. So CB is a huge need.

26P. San Francisco 49ers – 6-2 – FS Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama

The 49ers will use Clinton-Dix and Eric Reid, their 1st round pick in 2013 in the secondary as two dynamic play makers, and big hitters.

27P. New Orleans Saints – 6-2 – DE Aaron Lynch, South Florida

The Saints could be looking to cut ties with Will Smith, and by doing so, they get younger with Lynch.

28P. Cleveland Browns (f/Indianapolis Colts) – WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

The Browns have already got, who they think is their franchise QB in Brett Hundley, so why not give him a big target in Evans. Plus they are gonna look to deal Josh Gordon, and if not, that gives Cleveland a dynamic dual threat at WR.

29P. New England Patriots – 7-2 – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon

The Pats could use a young CB, who has speed, and good coverage skills.

30P. Denver Broncos – 7-1 – CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

The Broncos need to get younger at CB, and Champ Bailey isn’t getting any younger, and he may retire, so it’s best to get a young stud CB in the late 1st round.

31P. Seattle Seahawks – 8-1 – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State

The Seahawks need to possibly replace Michael Bennett, so they bring in a big DT who could play DE if need be.

32P. Kansas City Chiefs – 9-0 – DT Anthony Johnson, LSU

The Chiefs need to improve their DT spot. And Johnson could play some End, which they could use, as they let Glenn Dorsey leave to go to San Francisco, where he has done a good job.
