NFL's Future

2014 NFL Mock Draft

"Teddy Bridgewater"

Robert Mayer – USA Today Sports

We are in week two of the preseason, yet I feel like I’m in midseason form. The 2014 NFL Draft is already creating a ton of buzz with headliners like Jadeveon Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater having fans looking into the future – before we’ve kicked off the regular season. With the amount of buzz, the emails have flooded in requesting an updated 2014 NFL Mock Draft. 

Ask and you shall receive. It’s about two weeks after it was promised but the wait was worth it. We used the Vegas Super Bowl odds to determine draft order, so this does not reflect my feelings on order of finish. 

At this point, mock drafts are just about gauging players we think could rise up draft boards throughout the 2013 season. These are not intended to be accurate but rather start feeling out team needs and begin to gauge players value. Evaluating these guys is a fluid process that really doesn’t start to take any sort of shape until midway through this season – and often times beyond that point. 

The next mock draft will take place after week one of the NFL season is in the books and we will continue to add a new mock each week of the season, leading up to draft season. After the break, check out the latest 2014 NFL Mock Draft.

    I really love the Lynch to the Bucs pick. I’m a believer in Clayborn and expect him to become an impact rusher, but I’m much less confident about Bowers. Neither come close to the abilities of Lynch though so he’s a great fit for a team that really needs to up the sack/QBP stats.

    I’m not as high on Brandon Coleman as a top 20 guy at this point, but what I do love is the fit to the Colts. That could be a perfect match pairing such a big athletic guy like that with Andrew Luck.

      Bex,

      Lynch seemed like a natural fit for the Bucs. I like Clayborn – just not sure he’s a 10-12 sack/year guy. Lynch can give you that and adds to the athleticism of your D, which is quickly becoming the name of the game.

      I think the verdict is still out on Coleman – for me as well. Elite physical skills but need to see him evolve into more than just a vertical route runner this season. He’s been limited in the offseason which won’t help his case. For now, I think he’s a late 1 that will be pushed up the draft board with his combo of size/athleticism.

    What about Tajh Boyd?

      William,

      I don’t see first-round out of what I’ve seen of Boyd. Not saying he won’t be there but I need to see more from him as a passer. He’s intriguing from the standpoint of being an athlete but has to get in system/team willing to craft offense around his skills. Very overrated as downfield passer. I’d take Fales over Boyd everyday at this point. Boyd higher ceiling but I’m not sure he ever reaches it…but who know’s I had same concerns about Manuel.

    Lee and desean Jackson would be a nice duo

    You have that many QBs going in the 1st round and no AJ McCarron? That’s insane. The guy has the arm and all the intangibles to be a franchise QB…and he has the hardware to prove it.

    Taylor lewan for chargers, you didn’t put him on the list.

  • micah

    Lewan is going In top 10 no doubt .

  • John

    Denver may need another DT because Terrance Knighton may not get it done, so that’s not a bad pick.

    Keep seeing Bama fans talking about AJ McCarron. With defenses having to concentrate on a brusing running game and NFL quality WR he should have good stats. Please look at the Florida QB’s NFL success in teh 200s. Great in college (with superior talent) back ups in the pros (AJ’s faith)
