1/27 2014 NFL Mock Part 3
1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
The Houston Texans have a glaring need at the quarterback position, and with the first pick there options are plentiful. Teddy Bridgewater is the best of the trio (Bridgewater, Bortles, Manziel) of this years elite signal callers. Bridgewaters numbers might not blow you away but he is fundamentally sound and posses great awareness, agility, toughness, and arm strength. Mr. Bridgewater posses the abilities to step in right away.
2 - STL: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
The Offensive line play was shaky last season in St.Louis, and you can bet suring up there offensive line will be a top priority. Jake Matthews is arguably the most complete offensive lineman in this years class. He has exceptional size, footwork, and strength which make him a polished run and pass blocker. Matthews selection will be of great value to a organization looking for stability up front.
3 - JAX: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
Jacksonville badly needs a franchise quarterback but they also need playmakers on both sides of the ball just as bad. Jadeveon Clowney is arguably this years most physically gifted prospect. He will tremendously improve Jacksonvilles pass rush while giving them a defensive star they sorely need. Clowneys selection isn't the top priority but it is a high priority on the list, they will not be able to pass up on such a superior talent.
4 - CLE: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Cleveland Browns are sitting in a good position to find a superior signal caller sitting in the 4th spot. They will have the tough decision to decide between Manziel and Bortles, but it will be to hard for them to pass on the former Heisman winner Johnny Football. Manziel is a dual threat player that can make plays both inside and outside of the pocket. His exceptional running abilities will force defenses to honor his dual threat abilities.
5 - OAK: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
The Oakland Raiders have several holes to fill on there roster including offensive line. Aubruns Greg Robinson is a road grading offensive tackle prospect that will fill a huge hole for them. Robinson has shown abilities to dominate his opponent in the running game, and his long arms, quick feet, and patience prove him to be a exceptional pass blocker. This pick isn't going to excite many Raider fans, but passing up on this building block is something they can not afford.
6 - ATL: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
The Atlanta Falcons defense was awful last season and the poor pass rush was a major contributor to that. UCLA OLB/DE Anthony Barr will address that need by providing them with a physically gifted pass rusher. Barr has shown to be tough in the run game as well, he does a exceptional job using his hands and strength to get off opponents quickly and make plays. Barr will be a immediate upgrade for the Falcons and it will give them some much needed reinforcement in the trenches.
7 - TB: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The Buccaneers have bigger needs than wide receiver, but Clemson’s Sammy Watkins could be awfully tough for them to pass up. Watkins is a special talent who can do it all including stretch the field with blazing speed (4.3). Pairing up Watkins with Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson will give the Bucs one of the best receiving units in the NFL. Surrounding second year quarterback Mike Glennon with elite talent will be a top priority and no better place to start then with Watkins.
8 - MIN: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
The Minnesota Vikings are looking to add a signal caller to there offense, and with the acquisition of offensive coordinator Norv Turner they will need to find a strong arm passer who can push the ball down the field. Bortles is a finished pocket passer who has great vision, accuracy, and leadership skills. His mobility is above average and that will allow him to extend plays with his feet and make plays out of the pocket. Peterson will take pressure off him early but expect Bortles to flourish
9 - BUF: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
The Buffalo Bills stuck gold last season by finding ILB Kiko Alonzo, but the rest of the linebackers were not up to par. The Bills will stay local with this pick and select Buffalo University stand out Khalil Mack. Mack is a tough tenacious player who was overlooked most of his career due to playing in the MAC conference, but don't let that fool you this guy is a monster. Pairing the freak Mack with the standout Alonzo might take this already good unit over the top.
10 - DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The secondary was the poorest part of a bad defense last season especially the cornerback play, addressing this unit can not wait until later in the draft. Oklahoma State standout Justin Gilbert is arguably the best all around cornerback in this years class. Gilbert is a tall fluid back who has speed to run with all the routes, he has also shown excellent ball hawking skills in his college career. Gilbert will give the Lions a much needed top flight corner they badly need.
11 - TEN: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Alterraun Verner is a free agent this offseason and if they can not resign him there will be a gaping spot to fill on this defense. Dennard is a tough physical press corner who plays well against bigger receivers, he has also shown a willingness to play the run game tough . Dennard does have some speed issues which hold him back from being the top corner in this class, but his skills set is too good for the Titans to pass on and this will make the divorce with Verner much easier to handle.
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
The Rams had issues with the secondary play all season long last year and the safety play was a major reason. Clinton-Dix is a premier coverage safety who doubles as a great tackler. Clinton-Dix has shown elite speed, range, and ball hawking skills which is something the Rams sorely need. The Rams can not afford to look to address this position later in the draft with a player like Clinton-Dix still on the board. He will settle in immediately as a starter and a instant impact player.
14 - CHI: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Chicago defense last year was awful at stopping opponents rushing attack last season. Some of the blame could of been put on injuries but the reality is the lack of depth on the defensive line. Notre Dame defensive tackle Louis Nix is a 6'2 340 pound run stuffing nose tackle who is insanely strong. Nix dominates the line of scrimmage and when not double teams he wrecks havoc. Pairing Nix with 3 tech Landon Cohen will improve there interior defense instantly.
15 - PIT: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Steelers defense is getting old and injecting youth into that side of the ball is essential to sustain success. Louisville safety Calvin Pryor is the most physical defensive back in this years draft. He imposes his will against his opponents in the running game, and does a great job playing center field. Pryor is a smart heady player who is rarely caught flat footed or out of place. He will slide in nicely next to Troy Polamalu for the time being and eventually take over this unit.
16 - BAL: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
The Ravens offense hasn't been the same since Anquan Boldin left town last season, and finding a secondary receiver to pair with Torrey Smith is critical. Florida States Kelvin Benjamin is a excellent option as he has shown all the signs of a reliable NFL receiver. Benjamin posses excellent hands, quickness, and speed. He has all the abilities to run all the routes at the next level as well. Benjamin will give Flacco another dangerous target and take some attention off Torrey Smith.
17 - DAL: Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
The Cowboys defensive line is a major area of concern and with Jason Hatchers pending free agency they need to develop depth immediately. Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan is a extremely powerful and disruptive player who always plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage. Jernigan does a good job rushing the passer as well which will allow him to be a true three down lineman. Jernigan will fill a huge hole for the Cowboys even if Hatcher returns.
18 - NYJ: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Jets have a outstanding defense but the offense has holes all over the place. North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is a outstanding play maker who can line up anywhere on the field. His size and speed will cause immediate matchup isses for defenses and his ability to line up in the slot and win makes him a three down tight end. His run blocking abilites are suspect but there not asking him to run block. Pairing him with Jeff Cumberland will give Geno Smith some great options
19 - MIA: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Dolphins have holes to fill on the offensive line since the recent Incognito-Martin issues have come to surface. Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan is a tough nasty run blocker who uses who body extremly well in the running game. His long arms and quick feet make him a prototype left tackle at the next level which is exactly what the Dolphins are looking for.
20 - ARI: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
The Cardinals are in need of a OLB to play opposite Calais Campbell. John Abraham is 35 years old and they need to look to get younger this offseason. Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier is exceptional against the run, but his speed and strength will make him a load to handle on passing downs. Shazier will complement Campbell very well as there strengths and weaknesses will balance each other out.
21 - GB: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE , Washington
With Jermichal Finleys career hanging by the thread the Packers will need to address there tight end position. Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a do everything tight end package that will fit in nicely in Green Bay. Seferian-Jenkins is a massive red zone target who does a excellent job at winning match ups in the air. His ball skills and hands will make him a threat defenses will have to recognize week 1.
22 - PHI: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
The Eagles are sitting pretty on the offensive side of the ball so they need to take advantage this year to stockpile defensive talent. One of the areas that could use improvements is the cornerback position. Ohio State CB Bradley Roby is elite coverage cornerback who does a excellent job running with all routes. Roby is a heady player who rarely is out of position and always plays the ball looking for a turnover.
23 - KC: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
The Chiefs are looking for someone who can stretch the field outside and to pair with Dwayne Bowe. USC WR Marqise Lee is the exact player Andy Reid is looking for. Sky is the limit for Lee as he has great speed, quickness, hands, and does a excellent job running routes. He does a great job tracking the long ball in the air and going up to get it. Surrounding Alex Smith with as much talent as possible is a must for the Chiefs this offseason and Lee is a great place to start.
24 - CIN: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State
The Bengals have a extremely talented roster but adding secondary depth/competition is one area they can address. Florida State CB Lamarcus Joyner is a smaller (5-9 180lbs) corner who has off the charts speed and quickness. He will do a better job defending from the slot then he would on the outside, but if asked to step outside I do believe he would do a fine job. Joyner is a luxury pick for the Bengals as he will start out being the nickel corner which is a perfect fit.
25 - SD: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
The Chargers secondary was a little faulty last season and finding another corner will be a top priority for them. Luckily this years class is loaded with CB talent as TCU CB Jason Verrett will fall to them. Verrett does a great job recognizing routes and has the speed to run with a vertical passing attack. He is not a great press corner which is why he has fallen down the board, but his coverage skills will outweigh his pressing abilities.
26 - CLE: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The Cleveland Browns are getting blessed by the football Gods on this one as elite receiving talent Mike Evans is still on the board. Evans is a tall (6-5) player who does a exceptional job using his body at going up and getting the football. His speed and ability to stretch the field with his size is dangerous. He will give new QB Johnny Manziel a comfort level from being college teammates. Pairing Evans with Josh Gordan and Jordan Cameron will make the Browns passing attack flat out scary.
27 - NO: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
The Saints offensive line is a decent unit but most of that is part due to the exceptional interior play. Morgan Moses is a massive tackle prospect from Virginia who has shown abilities to take over a game with his size (6'6 330+) and strength. He rarely gets no push from the left tackle position in the running game, and his huge frame and light feet make him tough to either go through or around. Protecting Drew Brees and improving an already lethal offense is a reason for Saints fans to get gid
28 - CAR: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
The Panthers need to continue to build this team around Pro Bowl QB Cam Newton, and with Ted Ginn possibly leaving town it makes WR an area for upgrade. LSU WR Odell Beckman is a sure handed sound route runner who can make plays in both the short passing game and deep passing attack. He has shown good quickness and great vision with the ball in his hands, and does excellent after the catch. Even if Ginn returns Steve Smith is 34 years old and worst case it gives Beckman time to develop.
29 - NE: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
The Patriots will be looking to add depth along the defensive line this offseason, and Minnesota DT Ra'Shede Hageman is a absolute monster of a player. The 6'6 311 pound Hageman is insanely strong and does a great job playing low and using his hands. Hageman does have some good shake and bake in passing situations as well. Hageman is strong enough to play the shade of 0 tech to allow time for Vince Wilfork to not be rushed back into action.
30 - SF: Carlos Hyde, RB , Ohio State
Frank Gore is starting to get up there in age and grooming a replacement for the future is a luxury the 49ers can afford with there current roster. Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde has great size, speed, burst, vision, and does a excellent job finishing runs. The good news for the 49ers doesn't stop there as Hyde does a great job catching the ball out of the backfield as well. Like I said before this is a pick of luxury and combining Hyde with Gore will them a nice one two punch
31 - DEN: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
The Broncos defense looked good all year but there are some holes especially on the defensive line. Pittsburgh DT Aaron Donald is a special player even though his size (6'2 288) is a concern to many. Donald does a great job playing low and uses his smaller size to fit in small cracks and knife through offensive lines. He does a excellent job in passing situations using his quickness and speed in stunts and always plays hard.
32 - SEA: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
All the Seahawks were missing last year was a elite pass catching tight end. Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro is a true pass catching tight end who does a exceptional job running routes and has great hands

Excellent -- Good reasoning and really good explanations. I do think Jags will go QB though

Average -- *and 3 first round TE's is kind of unlikely
Saturday, February 15, 2014 9:09 AM
Below Average -- The first 10 picks are not bad, but there's no way that the WRs, Lee and Evans drop thar low.

Poor -- This reminds me of a bleacher report article. Written by someone who apparently wants to be a writer in spite of having no grasp for the english language, and wants to be an authority on football in spite of obviously having no understanding of it.
