2/14 2014 NFL Mock 2 Round
1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
The Houston Texans have several holes to fill, but no hole is more glaring then the quarterback position. Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater is hands down the top quarterback in the 2014 class. Bridgewater is a finished pocket passer with great mobility. He does a great job with his eyes and progressions all while excelling in the play action game. Bridgewater will make a immediate impact in Houston even though I expect some growing pains, I do expect the final product to be a great one.
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Between injuries to Jake Long and incumbent starter Rodger Staffold's contract expiration, the Rams have holes on there offensive line. Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson can help fill one of those spots. Robinson is a true mauling offensive tackle who excels in the run game, he always seems to generate a push at the point of the attack no matter who he's playing against. His massive size (6-5 320lbs) also allows him to wear his competition down.
3 - JAX: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
The Jaguars have several holes on there roster too fill with one of them being at the quarterback position, but the Jags can not afford to pass on the once in a decade defensive end talent Jadeveon Clowney. Clowney posses a rare combination of size (6-6 250 lbs) speed, quickness, and elusiveness which is why people are raving about this guy. Combining Clowney with Jason Babin will make a area that was once a question mark into a strength under Gus Bradley's guidance.
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Cleveland Browns are looking to a true franchise quarterback and luckily for them, they have two players to choose from. In the end they will pick college footballs most exciting player Johnny Manziel. Manziel is a dynamic player with a lot of flash, but the kid can flat out play the quarterback position. His ability to make plays out of nothing and throw the ball extraordinarily well on the run make him in a home-run pick for the Browns.
5 - OAK: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
Oakland is in a similar position to the Cleveland Browns, they are looking for stability at the quarterback position. Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles is a polished passer with great vision and decision making skills. His above average mobility will not make him a liability on the field either, but don't expect him to be running everywhere he is a true pocket passer. Bortles will have time to acclimate to the NFL game, but after he does expect him to excel.
6 - ATL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Atlanta has two major glaring needs 1.) offensive tackle 2.) pass rush. Texas AM offensive tackle Jake Matthews will solve one of those problems immediately. Matthews is a excellent pass protector, and maybe even the best in the class. Adding Matthews will allow Sam Baker to move back over to his best suited position on the right side. Protecting franchise QB Matt Ryan is high on there list, and this pick will solidify his blindside for years to come.
7 - TB: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
The Buccaneers desperately need to upgrade there ability to get to the quarterback, and UCLA defensive end Anthony Barr does exactly that. Barr is a fluid athlete who does a great job providing pressure off the edge, he also is known for being a strong stout player against the run. Combining Barr with 3-tech standout Gerald McCoy will instantly improve there pass rush. Lovie Smith loves players with toughness and high motors and that is exactly what Barr is.
8 - MIN: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
The Vikings are in the market for a quarterback and with newly hired offensive coordinator Norv Turner demanding a strong armed passer who can push the ball down the field. Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr is exactly what Minnesota is looking for. Carr is a finished fluid passer who makes great decisions on the run, and has leadership intangibles that are off the chart. Carr will prove to be a great pick and he will give some stability to there QB position.
9 - BUF: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
Buffalo has several needs and wide receiver is lower on the list but passing up on elite receiving talent Sammy Watkins will prove to be to hard. Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods have both proved to be serviceable receivers but they are both complimentary pieces. Watkins will give the receiving corps a go to guy and his presence will make everyone around him better. He will give second year quarterback EJ Manuel a true deep threat and give there offense a true star.
10 - DET: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
The weakest link for the Lions was there cornerback play this past, this area must upgrade immediately if they want to compete. Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard is a tough nosed corner with exceptional ball hawking skills. Dennard has abilities to shut down an entire side of a field. Dennard is also one of the toughest cornerbacks in this years class when it comes to stuffing the run. Dennard will fit in right away in Detroit's bad boy defense proving to be a top corner.
11 - TEN: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
The Titans desperately need to upgrade outside linebacker play due to the fact that Kameron Wimbley was a absolute bust. So steps in Khalil Mack who has been overlooked by many just because he played in the MAC conference but the fact is that this guy is a monster. Mack is a ferocious pass rush talent who has a rare combination of strength and speed. Mack doesn't just rush the passer he is exceptional in passing lane space, which makes him a perfect OLB for the next level.
12 - NYG: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Giants need to upgrade there offensive line due to recent poor play which was one of the reasons for such a awful season. Will Beatty is a true right tackle and Justin Pugh will do better on the inside. Taylor Lewan is a great left tackle prospect out of Michigan. Lewan thrives in the pass protection game, but his 6-7 frame allows him to wear down players in the run game with his body. This pick will solve three problems in one and provide major upgrades at all three.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
The Rams arguably had the worst safety combination last season with McLeod and McDonald, this area needs to be upgraded immediately. Alabama safety Hasean Clinton-Dix is hands down the top safety prospect in this years class. Clinton-Dix is a tough defender who plays strong in the run game, while being known for causing a no fly zone in center field. Clinton-Dix will upgrade the Rams secondary immediately by improving there pass and rush defense.
14 - CHI: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
With Henry Meltons pending free agency the Bears have holes to fill in there interior defensive line. Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald is a elite talent who posses insane quickness and strength. His small stature (6-1 288lbs) allows him to be quick and get in small cracks while causing havoc for opposing offensive lines. If the Bears can bring back Henry Melton this will turn this group into a strength and it will allow DT Landon Cohen to come off the bench with fresh legs.
15 - PIT: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Steelers are in need for a injection of youth in there secondary let alone there defense. Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert is a elite talent who plays the game the way the Steelers love. He plays tough on receivers and isn't afraid of the running game either. He also does a good job blitzing which is something corners must be able to do for Dick Labeau. Gilbert will allow the aging Ike Taylor to play a lesser role which will benefit both parties.
16 - BAL: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
As we found out this season the Ravens go as Flacco goes. There receiving group was dismal outside of Torrey Smith last season, and getting another threat outside of him will immediately benefit Flacco and the offense. Mike Evans is a big (6-5 225lbs) strong prospect from Texas AM. He does a great job using his body by going up and getting the ball. He will give Baltimore another much needed red zone threat and someone Flacco can rely on.
17 - DAL: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
The Cowboys have a couple weaknesses and there interior defensive line is the biggest weakness. 3-tech Jason Hatcher's pending free agency will make upgrading this group and even higher priority. Luckily for Dallas Ra'Shede Hageman is a perfect fit for there defense. The strong, agile, quick, and tough Hageman will give the Cowboys a reliable 3 down player. If they Boys can bring Hatcher back, pairing him with Hageman will give them a solid interior group.
18 - NYJ: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Jets offense is in need of a play-making threat especially from the tight end position. North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is a elite pass catching tight end who has the whole package. Ebron is athletic enough to line up in the slot and win battles against defensive backs, and he will be able to use those abilities to stretch the field. Ebron will give the Jets a immediate upgrade at tight end and a huge upgrade for Geno Smith.
20 - ARI: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
The Cardinals are in the market for a true left tackle, and Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio will fill this hole for them. Kouandjio is a elite pass protecting offensive lineman who excels in the passing game, but his toughness and strength allow him to hold his own in the running game as well. With the Cardinals heavy passing attack Kouandjio will fit in immediately, and give them a huge upgrade and more pass protection for Carson Palmer.
21 - GB: Deone Bucannon, S , Washington State
Green Bays back half of there secondary was there Achilles heal last season, and upgrading this unit is absolutely vital. Deone Buccannon is a bone crushing safety prospect from Washington State University. Buccannon is a physical player who dominates in the run game with his toughness and hard hitting. He also does a great job defending the back half of the defense with great ball skills. Buccannon will make a immediate impact and give them a much need upgrade.
23 - KC: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
The Kansas City Chiefs are in the market for finding a complimentary piece to add to there receiving group to take some pressure off Dwayne Bowe. USC receiver Marquise Lee s a great route runner who has exceptional hands. Lee will take some pressure of Bowe and he will give Alex Smith another threat on the outside. Lee is going to develop in a nice possession receiver at the next level, and that might be the missing piece to a already stellar offense.
24 - CIN: Chris Smith, DE , Arkansas
With Micheal Johnson's pending free agency they will look to add defensive end depth. Arkansas defensive end Chris Smith is a true passing talent, he does a exceptional job at getting to the quarterback. Smith will need to develop more strenght and weight to turn into a true 3 down player at the next level but when he does he will be a all around defensive end.
25 - SD: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
The Chargers cornerback play was the weakest link for there defense last season, and upgrading this unit can not wait til later in the draft. Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby is a excellent pass defending player, but I do question his toughness and ability to be a good run defender. The Chargers will need to hope that Roby's cover skills will outweigh the fact that he is a liability in the running game. If Roby can accomplish that he will be a all around player, and a huge upgrade.
26 - CLE: Tre Mason, RB , Auburn
The Browns are in the market for a huge upgrade over incumbent starter Edwin Baker. Tre Mason is a tough between the tackle runner who rarely puts the ball on the ground. Mason will give the Browns a home run threat out of the backfield from both a running and receiving standpoint. Mason will give the Browns a game changing threat something they have been missing since the Jamal White days in the early 2000's
28 - CAR: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
Carolina is looking to upgrade there receiving corps with the pending free agency of Ted Ginn and aging of Steve Smith make this a priority. Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews is a sure handed receiver who always knows where is he on the field, Matthews does a great job catching everything thrown in his direction, and has abilities to break a game open. Matthews will make defenses respect his presence and he will take some pressure off the aging Steve Smith.
29 - SF: Allen Robinson, WR , Penn State
Anquan Boldin is a potential free agent and even if he stays they will need to groom a replacement. Penn State receiver Allen Robinson is a big play receiver who is a true deep threat. His 4.3 speed will allow him to stretch the field and give Kapernick another big play target. Robinson is a super productive player who will fit in immediately for the 49ers. If Boldin returns his numbers will take a hit, but if he leaves I would expect Robinson to be the go to guy.
31 - DEN: Trent Murphy, LB, Stanford
Denver's defense has been a lot different this year without Von Miller in the lineup. His absence has highlighted the team's need to bring in more pass-rushers for depth. Trent Murphy out of Stanford is a long, tall, strong defensive end who would be able to contribute early in his career for the Broncos. Murphy will have a chance to thrive while playing along a healthy Von Miller, this unit will prove to be a huge asset for there defense
32 - SEA: Antonio Andrews, RB , Western Kentucky
Marshawn Lynch is aging and taking some carries off his back now allow him to have a longer career. The Seahawks will have a chance to groom someone, all while giving him a chance to learn from one of the best. Western Kentucky running back Antonio Andrews is a big play tough between the tackle runner who can take a chunk of the carries off Lynch. He pass catching skills are phenomenal, which will benefit him by allowing him to maximize his opportunities.

Above Average -- Very well thought out and concise. I do not believe that McCullers or Andrews will be 1st rounders,but that's the beauty of a MOCK draft eveyone has their own opinion. Nice job.

Average -- Philly won't draft a linebacker. Need S,CB or WR. Give you credit though, for thinking out of the box on some of your picks
