2014 NFL Mock Draft: Post-Combine Update
Who will be the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft? That's the question on everyone's mind as the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine comes to a close.
Will the Houston Texans pull the trigger on one of the top quarterbacks? Could they see Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel leading them back into the playoffs? Where does that leave once-in-a-decade talents like Sammy Watkins and Jadeveon Clowney? What about elite left tackle prospects Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews?
The 2014 draft class figures to be one of the deepest in recent memory. In fact, in my 10 years covering the draft, this is the best group I've seen—that's good news for the Texans and their 31 counterparts.
So, who comes off the board first? Find out in this full seven-round mock draft.
1. Houston Texans
The Pick: QB Blake Bortles, Central Florida
This is not the pick I would make as general manager of the Houston Texans. However, this is the pick I believe they would make if the draft were happening today.
The decision will be a long and difficult one for Houston. There are four quarterbacks to consider—Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr and Bortles—as well as freaks like Jadeveon Clowney and Greg Robinson. But until you have a quarterback you believe in, you have to keep trying to get one.
Bortles is raw, but if he develops as expected, he'll be a high-level starter. He's big and impossible to bring down in the backfield, and he has the athleticism to improvise, both in and out of the pocket. He doesn't have Colin Kaepernick's arm, but his strength is good enough to push the ball upfield while he's on the run or in the pocket.
2. St. Louis Rams (via Washington Redskins)
The Pick: WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson
The St. Louis Rams have plenty of needs to address in the 2014 offseason, but general manager Les Snead and head coach Jeff Fisher also know they can't pass on a game-changing offensive weapon for quarterback Sam Bradford.
The talk here will be about offensive tackles—Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews—against the talent of Watkins. The decision is easy, in my opinion, as Watkins ranks as my No. 3 overall player (behind Bridgewater and Clowney). That value, and his ability to dominate on the edge, would make him an incredible threat in the Rams offense.
And with two first-round picks, the Rams have a good chance to add a left tackle at pick No. 13. That, of course, all hinges on them keeping this pick—and that's not a guarantee.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Pick: QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville
If I were making the picks for each of these teams, Teddy Bridgewater would be the first player off the board. However, the Jacksonville Jaguars can hope he lasts to pick No. 3 come May 8.
The Jaguars' need for a quarterback is well known and very legitimate. Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert are not the answer at the position—not now and not in the long term. Even with an elite defensive end prospect like Jadeveon Clowney still on the board, their deficiency at the QB spot is so great that the Jaguars have to compare need against value.
The pick, if you're truly marrying need and value here, should be Bridgewater.
4. Cleveland Browns
The Pick: QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M
The Cleveland Browns, like so many other teams selecting in the top five each year, desperately need a quarterback. The good news is that the pick of Sammy Watkins at No. 2 overall pushes Johnny Manziel down to Cleveland.
Manziel may be a divisive prospect, but you can't deny his talent and electric ability. He's fast, instinctive, smart and poised under pressure. His style of play may be unique, but that's part of the beauty of it. Manziel is the type of talent who can put an offense on his back and win games—and that's what the Browns need.
With three selections within the top 35 picks, the Browns would be smart to draft their quarterback here and use the subsequent picks to build up the talent around him.
5. Oakland Raiders
The Pick: DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina
Jadeveon Clowney is a once-in-a-decade talent at defensive end. So why isn't he going first overall—or anywhere within the top four, for that matter? Because defensive end isn't as important to teams as quarterback is.
There's a great chance that someone—Atlanta, for example—trades up to the No. 2 overall spot and steals the South Carolina pass-rusher. But in a mock draft without trades, he's on the board for the Oakland Raiders here, and that's great news for a team that lacks franchise-caliber players at many positions.
The Raiders need a quarterback, but Derek Carr would be a reach for them at No. 5 overall. There's also the reality that the team could look to free-agent quarterbacks, so the front office may not feel quarterback is a need in Round 1. Also, Clowney would be a cornerstone player for a defense in need of help.
6. Atlanta Falcons
The Pick: OT Greg Robinson, Auburn
The Atlanta Falcons would love to see Jadeveon Clowney on the board here, but unless they're willing to trade up, they are unlikely to land him. By May 8, they may be willing to deal up to the first or second overall pick in order to get the elite defensive end prospect, but for now, that's not on the table.
Finding Greg Robinson on the board at No. 6 wouldn't be a bad thing. Protecting your $100 million investment in Matt Ryan is a smart play for a front office that just hired renowned offensive-line evaluator Scott Pioli to help their scouting department.
Robinson is a once-in-a-decade athlete at the position, and he looks to be a franchise left tackle and elite run-blocker early in his career.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Pick: OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
Protecting the franchise is now the job requirement of a left tackle. And in Tampa, where Donald Penn has been good but not great, it's possible that the Bucs front office will look to make an upgrade at the position.
The Buccaneers would love to see Sammy Watkins or Jadeveon Clowney still on the board here, but the team would not be settling or reaching by grabbing Jake Matthews to be a stud at left tackle. Matthews has the reach, movement, football IQ and versatility to be great along the offensive line.
If the board falls this way in May, Tampa may look to trade out of this spot, but as of today, this is the pick.
8. Minnesota Vikings
The Pick: QB Derek Carr, Fresno State
The Minnesota Vikings need a quarterback. Derek Carr is one of the better prospects at the position. This is a match of need and value for the new Vikings staff.
Carr may not receive the attention of the other big quarterbacks, but his play on the field was top-notch. He's the lone senior of the top four quarterbacks and has played in a pro-style system at Fresno State. And if you're the Vikings, you want a pro-ready passer to step right in and help turn this team around.
Of course, having Adrian Peterson, Matt Kalil, John Sullivan and Cordarrelle Patterson as a supporting cast will help. Carr, who ranks as the No. 12 overall player on my board, is a great value and fills the team's biggest need.
9. Buffalo Bills
The Pick: DE/OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo
The story sounds too good to be true: local college player stays in town to be the outside force the Buffalo Bills need. But if Khalil Mack is available at pick No. 9, he should be the man for the Bills as they look to catch the New England Patriots in the AFC East.
Mack has the edge ability to be a force for the Bills in passing situations, but he also showed good ability when unprotected against the run. Mack will struggle when asked to cover up (line up in front of) the tackle, but that's not his game. He's a weakside linebacker with pass-rushing skills and the instincts to dominate.
A young roster in Buffalo breeds the type of "best player available" pick that this is, and Mack would help to complete the team's young defense.
10. Detroit Lions
The Pick: WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
Imagine an offense with Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and Joseph Fauria joined by Mike Evans—that's immediately one of the best matchup offenses in the NFL. Oh, and they would also have Matthew Stafford, one of the game's best arms, delivering dimes to the targets. Not bad, Detroit.
The Lions have needs, but this is also a young team with many up-and-coming players. Fauria, Riley Reiff, Larry Warford and a number of players on offense give the franchise the star power to fuel the new regime led by Jim Caldwell. And if they can keep Stafford protected and consistent, the targets would be in place to keep up with any offense in the league.
Adding Evans may seem like a luxury pick—and the Matt Millen haters will point to another wide receiver in the first round—but this is a need for Detroit. Adding a legitimate target opposite Johnson will open up the offense and make the Lions one of the league's best when they have the football.
11. Tennessee Titans
The Pick: OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA
The transition to a 3-4 defense—or at least a hybrid defense—under new head coach Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Ray Horton will require new weapons. Enter Anthony Barr.
This is exactly the type of athlete the Titans need. Barr is long, athletic, dynamic and able to create pressure consistently off the edge. The former running back has also shown the agility to be dangerous in space, and he can be a contributor in coverage early on.
Barr is the type of athlete that can make a defense. Think of the elite edge rushers in the NFL and what they bring to the table, and you see the type of potential the former Bruin offers.
12. New York Giants
The Pick: DE Kony Ealy, Missouri
It's hard to remember that the New York Giants won two Super Bowls recently, especially when you look at their struggles on the field in 2013. To get back to the postseason and back to their title-winning ways, general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Tom Coughlin must first fix the trenches.
Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy is exactly the type of long, athletic, powerful defender the Giants need opposite—or next to—Jason Pierre-Paul. The days of Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora are over, but adding a similarly talented athlete makes sense for the Giants in this scenario. They could pull the trigger on a left tackle, but William Beatty carries a big cap number and does have some upside. Fixing the pass rush would provide better value, and it would also be a better move financially.
That's not to say Ealy is a consolation prize. He's a strong edge player with the athletic flexibility to play in a 6-5 or 3-technique at the next level. He's a game-changer along the defensive line and will immediately free up Pierre-Paul and the rest of the Giants' front seven to make plays.
13. St. Louis Rams
The Pick: OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
With the No. 2 pick in this mock draft, the Rams added a dynamic, electric playmaker in wide receiver Sammy Watkins. By pairing him with Tavon Austin, Chris Givens, Stedman Bailey and flex tight end Jared Cook, the team is in good shape at the position. Now, it's time to finish building an offensive line that can protect the quarterback.
The Rams are banking on Sam Bradford being the answer at quarterback, and I believe he can be if he is protected and given legitimate targets. That's why Watkins and Taylor Lewan are so important.
Lewan has the ability to start immediately at left tackle, which becomes especially important if Jake Long isn't ready to start the season. Lewan is also strong enough to handle right tackle duty if/when Long is ready to go.
Having two Michigan men on the edges is a great way to give Bradford the time he needs to deliver the ball to an impressive list of playmakers.
14. Chicago Bears
The Pick: CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State
The Chicago Bears have legitimate needs at defensive end and defensive tackle, but they also need upgrades at linebacker, cornerback and safety. What does that mean? The Bears can comfortably draft the best remaining defensive player on the board at pick No. 14—and that's what I've done here.
Justin Gilbert would give the Bears a big (6'0", 202 lbs) cornerback with the ability to play in press coverage. He's hungry and confident and has the athleticism to be a factor on turnovers and special teams. With Charles Tillman's age and impending free agency, the team needs a starter opposite Tim Jennings. That could be Gilbert from the first day of camp.
15. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pick: WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State
Assigning value to players is one of the toughest jobs of a scout and general manager. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to look at a player and say, "He can play," but putting a number value on that player is tough.
All that is to say that Kelvin Benjamin confounds me. He's built like a tight end (6'5", 240 lbs) and ran exceptionally well in the 40-yard dash (4.61) and in the Gauntlet drill in Indianapolis. I'm in love with Benjamin's raw ability, but his lack of concentration on the field leads to many drops and missed assignments.
The Steelers can roll the dice on Benjamin because of need and potential value. They need a big target to open up the field for Ben Roethlisberger, and the Florida State product has that upside. How well he develops and how each team values his rawness will be the key to where he's actually selected in May.
16. Dallas Cowboys
The Pick: DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh
Rebuilding the defensive line could quickly become a top priority for Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys this offseason. With Jason Hatcher and Anthony Spencer set to hit free agency and DeMarcus Ware carrying a crippling $16 million cap hit this season, the team could really be looking at replacing both defensive ends and at least one defensive tackle.
The best way to rebuild is through the draft, and given the team's cap situation, that's really their only option. Pitt's Aaron Donald is the type of athletic, dynamic pass-rusher the team needs in the middle of its 4-3 scheme.
Donald isn't the biggest guy (6'1", 285 lbs), but he has the lightning-quick first step needed to win battles along the line. He may never be great against the run, but he has the athletic profile, hand use and leverage to be a positional leader in sacks and tackles for loss in the NFL.
17. Baltimore Ravens
The Pick: TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina
The Baltimore Ravens have to look at the loaded crop of wide receivers and tight ends in this year's class and realize they can give Joe Flacco the weapons he needs to become a top-tier quarterback. Given the team's depth chart at the two positions, I expect them to go after both a tight end and a receiver early on.
Eric Ebron has carried a comparison to Vernon Davis from me since I finished my report on him. He's smooth and crazy athletic and can even come down and contribute as a blocker. Ebron can play in-line (next to the offensive tackle on the line of scrimmage) or in a flex position (in motion, in the slot, etc.). That versatility is what the Ravens need, as Ebron would give Flacco a legit yards-after-catch threat in the middle of the field.
If the Ravens can lock up left tackle Eugene Monroe in free agency—and they definitely can—then this pick becomes automatic.
18. New York Jets
The Pick: WR Odell Beckham Jr., LSU
The New York Jets have to give their quarterback weapons this offseason. That may come through the draft and free agency given their many needs at wide receiver and tight end. With their first pick in the draft, it's almost as simple as assigning them the best pass-catcher on the board.
Odell Beckham Jr. is the best pass-catcher on the board, but he's also a great fit for the Jets offense. Beckham has the speed to stretch a defense and can make big plays down the field, but I also love his ability to take a short pass and turn upfield for yardage.
Whether it's Geno Smith or someone else throwing the ball for New York next season, Beckham is the type of receiver on whom the quarterback can rely.
19. Miami Dolphins
The Pick: DT Louis Nix, Notre Dame
The Miami defense could be ravaged by free agency, and that will lead to a tough decision at pick No. 19.
With both Randy Starks and Paul Soliai expected to hit free agency on March 11, the Dolphins will be looking at replacing the two older tackles via the draft. Depending on their ability to re-sign cornerback Brent Grimes, the use of the team's first-round pick could change, but as of today, defensive tackle is their biggest potential need.
Louis Nix didn't have the best combine you'll ever see for a defensive tackle, but this is a man who shows up on film. Nix is an anchor against the run and has shown the quickness to split blockers and pressure the quarterback. That's exactly what Miami needs as it rebuilds its defensive line.
20. Arizona Cardinals
The Pick: DE/OLB Dee Ford, Auburn
The Arizona Cardinals could aim to solve their need at left tackle in free agency, which would open the door for a pass-rusher or the best available defender with No. 20 overall pick.
Dee Ford was held out of combine workouts due to a back issue that he called a "precaution," but it could cause him to slip down the board when the first round comes around. If Ford is still available at this spot, however, the Cardinals have to pounce on him.
His quickness, violence and agility bending the edge as a pass-rusher are ideal for the Cardinals defense. And if left tackle is fixed in free agency, Ford will help to fix the hole at weakside linebacker, the other big area of need on the team.
21. Green Bay Packers
The Pick: FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Alabama
The safety position is among the biggest needs the Green Bay Packers have as the combine closes. A great safety can pull together an entire defense and make everyone around him better. That's the type of player Mike McCarthy needs. That's also the type of player Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is.
Clinton-Dix fits the role of the single-high safety and is an ideal player for today's NFL. He can run and shows great range to the flats, which is where teams want their safeties to be now. But Clinton-Dix isn't just a coverage guy. He'll come down into the box and hit guys.
With the Packers' needs at safety, this pick is a match made in heaven.
22. Philadelphia Eagles
The Pick: FS Calvin Pryor, Louisville
The safety position has evolved quietly over the last few seasons. The idea of a "free" and "strong" safety may matter in Madden, but in real life, the line has blurred. Teams now want safeties with range—and you'd better be able to cover, run and tackle.
Calvin Pryor does all three at a high level, but his specialty is the ability to crush wide receivers and tight ends as a tackler. And that's what the Philadelphia Eagles lack at the safety position—or anywhere in their secondary, really.
Pryor could step right into the defense and become an enforcer, not just in the middle but anywhere in space.
23. Kansas City Chiefs
The Pick: DT/DE Ra'Shede Hageman, Minnesota
The need for a defensive end in Kansas City might surprise you, but the Chiefs are facing considerable uncertainty at the position.
Tyson Jackson has been a longtime starter, but he's a free agent and hasn't exactly lived up to expectations. Opposite him, you have Allen Bailey—a good young athlete, but a raw player—and veteran Mike DeVito. Youth and explosive qualities are needed.
Ra'Shede Hageman is a freak athlete, but his film at Minnesota was too often inconsistent. That's why he's available at No. 23 when he has legit top-15 talent.
24. Cincinnati Bengals
The Pick: CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State
There's a good chance cornerback Darqueze Dennard comes off the board much earlier than this on May 8, but assigning a team to draft him higher than No. 24 overall is difficult. A talented corner, Dennard could fall right into the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals, and they would be fine with that.
Dennard is a grabby, physical cornerback with the toughness to play in press coverage early in his career. You'd like to see better long speed and hip flexibility, but he ran much better than expected at the combine and answered many questions critics had about his burst and sprint speed.
Dennard would step right into a starting job in Cincinnati as the team looks to replace aging veterans Terence Newman and Adam Jones.
25. San Diego Chargers
The Pick: CB Jason Verrett, TCU
The San Diego Chargers made the postseason thanks to the resurgence of Philip Rivers in Mike McCoy's system. In 2014, they're hoping to make small fixes to the roster that can push them over the top in the AFC West.
Verrett has the toughness and ball skills to be a very good outside cornerback in the NFL. He's quick and rangy and shows the instincts to get in place to make big plays. He finds the ball well and has the tools to excel in man or zone coverage.
The Chargers need a true No. 1 cornerback in the secondary, and Verrett can be that guy.
26. Cleveland Browns (via Indianapolis Colts)
The Pick: WR Marqise Lee, USC
With the No. 4 pick, the Browns found their quarterback in Johnny Manziel. Now, they need to give him a target with which to work the middle and deep stretches of the field.
The team has a nice set of talent with Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, but they need at least one more receiver. Marqise Lee is a nice fit, as he has the speed to pick up yards after the catch and is a top-tier route-runner, having shown the consistent ability to run himself open in coverage.
Give Manziel a smart wide receiver like Lee—someone who knows how to work back to the ball—and you have a dynamic duo in the making.
27. New Orleans Saints
The Pick: ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
C.J. Mosley's draft stock remains all over the place at this point in time. He's clearly the top inside linebacker in the class, but I've been told that teams are afraid of his knees and may not clear him medically. Mosley has produced on the field, though, and that's tough to overlook.
The New Orleans Saints may be in a position at pick No. 27 where they feel the value is worth the risk. Mosley, if cleared, has NaVorro Bowman-like athleticism at the middle linebacker position. His range allows him to be a threat on outside runs and in pursuit against the pass, but he's also strong enough to make plays against the run on inside plays.
Mosley would be a terror in Rob Ryan's scheme. The Saints have to be hoping for this scenario in May.
28. Carolina Panthers
The Pick: OT Zack Martin, Notre Dame
The retirement of Jordan Gross makes left tackle the biggest need on the Carolina Panthers depth chart. So much so, in fact, that it wouldn't be a surprise to see them try and pick up a free-agent starter—but that will be difficult given their cap situation and defensive end Greg Hardy's expiring contract.
The best move, and most likely one, would be to draft a left tackle. Zack Martin may project at guard for some, but his game film and performance during Senior Bowl week proved to me that he can handle the job of protecting Cam Newton's blind side. Martin understands angles and space and is agile enough to keep himself in front of edge rushers.
The Panthers have other needs—notably, at wide receiver and in the secondary—but this need takes precedence.
29. New England Patriots
The Pick: TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech
The New England Patriots cannot afford to ignore the fact that Tom Brady needs some weapons. Be it through the draft and/or free agency, Bill Belichick has to add targets at tight end and wide receiver.
Jace Amaro can be the weapon the team lost when Aaron Hernandez was arrested. While not as fast in space, Amaro can be a flex tight end and a matchup nightmare with his size (6'5", 265 lbs), reach and speed. Match him up in the slot with Rob Gronkowski in-line, and you have the personnel to be dynamic, versatile and very frustrating for the opposition.
The Patriots can no longer count on Gronkowski to be their No. 1 target—at least not until he stays healthy. Amaro, teamed with young wide receivers, could keep this offense going.
30. San Francisco 49ers
The Pick: WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State
The San Francisco 49ers need a speedy wide receiver to take the top off the opposing defense and truly stretch the field. That's something quarterback Colin Kaepernick has never had—and something the team never needed with Alex Smith at quarterback. But now, with Kaepernick's big arm, the 49ers need that deep threat with elite speed.
Enter Brandin Cooks. His 4.33-second 40-yard dash at the combine proves that his speed is legit, and his production at Oregon State led to him winning the Biletnikoff Award in 2013. Cooks has the speed, hands, body control and range to be excellent when working down the field in a loaded San Francisco offense.
With 11 picks in the draft class, the 49ers can make this pick for need and focus on value and depth at other spots.
31. Denver Broncos
The Pick: DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State
The middle of the defensive line in Denver could be stable, but it could also implode. That's where pick No. 31 comes into play.
The team found great success with Terrance Knighton, but how long will he be in town after asking for a raise? Sylvester Williams was a first-round pick for the team in 2013, but he's yet to develop into a star. The potential is there for Williams to be a high-level starter, but the Broncos also need more of a pass-rusher lining up next to him.
Timmy Jernigan has the flexibility to play any of the defensive tackle techniques (0-1-3) and excel. He's strong as an ox and quick off the ball—even if his 40-yard dash wasn't that impressive. Jernigan, in rotation with Knighton and Williams, would give Denver the balance it needs to offset its studs at linebacker.
32. Seattle Seahawks
The Pick: OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama
The front office in Seattle has done a great job building a talented, young and cheap team. Now, the Seahawks have a roster with the ability to win another Super Bowl, but they have to remain ahead of their competitors. That means finding better ways to protect Russell Wilson.
Right tackle Breno Giacomini has a Super Bowl ring, but his spot could still be upgraded in 2014. With a chronic knee injury keeping Cyrus Kouandjio off some teams' boards, as reported Chase Goodbread of NFL Network, he could slip way down the board. Of course, it only takes one team to love him, and the play he showed on the field for Alabama merits a first-round pick, but that knee injury definitely raises red flags.
If Pete Carroll and John Schneider are comfortable with Kouandjio's knee, he's the type of power right tackle the team would love to have in the NFC West.
