The wait is finally over and the picks are in…Here is A’s final Mock 2014 NFL Draft.
Welcome to Radio City Music Hall for the 1st Round of the 2014 NFL Draft and now on the clock……..
Jadeveon Clowney–No way you can pass up on a chance to team up JJ Watt and Clowney…scary isn’t the word
Khalil Mack—Will take a lot of pressure off of their DL and could be that piece to allow the D to gel
Taylor Lewan—The bitter taste of a high pick rookie QB is still in the taste of the Jags mouth and they would rather draft his protector first.
Blake Bortles—Against all Browns logic the QB that makes the most sense is selected…could the curse be ending?
Sammy Watkins—Al is gone, but he probably would have traded up to take Sammy, so it’s a push.
Greg Robinson—Matt Ryan needs to be protected for years to come and Greg is the man to do it
Mike Evans —-Will provide the deep threat they badly need to provide balance in Lovie’s Smiths offense
Johnny Manziel Smokes and mirrors…no way the Vikes are happy with their QB situation and this combo may be better than the Vick/AP one that “someone” predicted could win it all
Eric Ebron Game changers at the TE position come about every 5-7 years, hopefully Buffalo will use his talent effectively
Anthony Barr—Adding depth and speed and the “Hammer” that Jim Caldwell says he’s looking for in the draft….the silver medal to Mack
Justin Gilbert The 1a of the DBs definitely helps to solidify the Titans defense and helps the Whiz aka Ken Whisenhunt start to game plan to be more aggressive
Aaron Donald—-Once Detroit passed this is the natural fit with all of the holes the Giants have on their DL (may trade up for him)
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix—–Rams will be laughing all the way to the podium is Ha-Ha is still available for them at this pick
Kyle Fuller—-Deemed a combination of Denard and Gilbert, but with better cover skills…dangerous if this is true for the rest of the NFC North
Kony Ealy—-Will have a chance to prove what he has proclaimed as being the best DE and he will have a chip on his shoulder and big shoes to fill too
CJ Mosley—-Definitely not a replacement for the gapping hole left by Demarcus Ware, but a nice start
Zack Martin—-Solid pick to help protect Joe Flacco and give him time to get the ball to Steve Smith and make holes for Ray, if he’s there
Calvin Pryor—-Perfect fit for Rex Ryan in his last ditch effort to recreate the defensive magic from years past
Xavier Su’a-Filo—-Offensive line is the #1 concern and without trading up the interior is where they have to start
Teddy Bridgewater—-Maybe the warm weather of Arizona will mirror that of Florida and Teddy will recreate his Cardinals magic on the professional level.
Darqueze Denard—-A gift has fallen into Lambeau’s lap and help sure up that porous defensive backfield
Odell Beckham—-Solid 10 year NFL WR here; you have your replacement and upgrade of Jason Avant
Brandin Cooks—-Alex Smith gets another piece that allows him to become one step further away from a game manager
Timmy Jernigan—-Disruptive player will make an impact a few times a game, just cant disappear the other times
Ryan Shazier—-Long and rangy will cover lots of ground in a division where LBs need to run like the wind
Carlos Hyde—-Will be a HR with the fans and definitely help improve the 3rd down efficiency rate
Davante Adams—-Speed kills and if Drew Brees can have even less time to pass that equates to big trouble in the Big Easy for all opponents
Marquise Lee—-Much needed Lee comes in and is likely the #1 from day 1, Cam Newton will be spending a lot of QT with you
Dee Ford—-Not the top need, but the ability to add pressure without blitzing will be key for the Pats this season
Jason Verett—-Scheme fits well with his skill set (don’t be surprised if they trade up or down)
Jimmie Ward—-The ability to draft a talented player and have him develop over time will be beneficial for the Broncos
Cyrus Kouandjio—-The fact the Pete Carroll has the current magic touch means this pick is gonna work out well for the defending SB champs
