Weekly 2014 NFL Mock Draft


Hi guys here is my weekly mock draft.

There is still some trades in it but less than last week.

1. ***TRADE UP*** Atlanta Falcons: JD. Clowney, DE, South Carolina

Texans will be looking to trade this pick and they might find a trade partner in the Falcons. Atlanta wants to be back into contention. If they want to reach that goal they need to add some pass rush. Clowey will not only bring pass rush but also attitude and physicality. Falcons will have to give next year first round pick and this year first and second.

2. St. Louis Rams: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

With Clowney off the board the Rams will have a hard time trading this pick. So they will stay at number 2 and draft the top player on their board. Some might want to see Robinson there but historically Fisher don’t draft OL in the first round.

3.  Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

There are some reports out there saying that Jacksonville are looking to take their quarterback in the second round. I think this is just smokescreens. I also don’t buy all the bad publicities that Bridgewater is getting lately. He is an exceptional leader and his decisions making are NFL ready. He is a ”face of the franchise” type of quarterback and the Jaguars will pull the trigger.

4. Cleveland Browns: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

The Browns need a signal caller more than any other position. They could wait and draft a quarterback with their 26th pick but they don’t have the luxury to wait and hope that their guy will be there. Manziel is a playmaker and he will get the fans exited.

5. Oakland Raiders: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

Raiders have a though decision to make here. That have to choose between Mack or Robinson. They add a lot of defensive players in FA but they lost their LT. Robinson is the top OL player in the draft and he will bring some aggressiveness and physicality to their O-line.

6. ***TRADE DOWN*** Houston Texans:  Khalil Mack, DE/OLB, Buffalo

Texans will be excited that Mack is still available and will draft him with 1.57 seconds on the clock. They need more pass rush and Mack is a versatile player that can be moved around. Great pick and great fit.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

The Buccaneers have to protect who ever their starting quarterback will be. There are some reports that the Bucs would draft Bortles if he is available but I think he will fall in the draft.

8.  Minnesota Vikings: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA

Barr is a raw pass rusher but he has a lot of upside. Vikings will draft the replacement for Allen and gets good value.

9.  Buffalo Bills: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

The Bills will be very happy that a Wr like Evans falls to them. They need more weapons if they want Manuel to succeed. Evans could very well develop into one of the best in the league in a few years. He has all you want from a #1 receiver.

10.Detroit Lions: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

Suh is in his contract year. He should be resign but it isn’t done just yet. Fairley is also in his contract year. Lions will draft Donald to continue to have a great interior D-lineman. He might not fill an immediate need but he is the best player on the board and he gives them flexibility when they will negotiate with Suh and Fairley.

11. Tennesse Titans: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

The Titans have to replace Verner. Who’s better than the best corner in the draft?

12. New York Giants: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

Giants need to add some weapons for Manning.  Ebron is an elite pass catcher TE. He could be the next Vernon Davis and Giants can’t pass on him.

13. St. Louis Rams: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

I know I said Fisher don’t draft a O-line with a top pick and the Rams need to boost their secondary but if Lewan is there they have to take him. Bradford have to be protected if they want him to play 16 games.

14. Chicago Bears: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

The Bears biggest need is arguably CB. So Dennard fills a need and he is the type of physical corner that they like.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

Steelers need an upgrade in their secondary. Unfortunately Dennard and Gilbert are gone but Fuller is rising up draft boards lately. At the moment drafting Fuller at 15th is not a reach.

16. Dallas Cowboys: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

Cowboys need a player with range and ball skills at the safety position. They are lucky that Clinton-Dix is still available and he will be an immediate game changer in their secondary. Cowboys have Barry Church at the safety position. He is a very good tackler and with Clinton-Dix in town it will allowed Church to play more in the box and do what he does best.

17. Baltimore Ravens:  CJ. Mosley, ILB, Alabama

18. New York Jets: Odell Beckham Jr, WR, LSU

19. Miami Dolphins: Zack Martin, T/G, Notre Dame

20. Arizona Cardinals: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

21.  Green Bay Packers: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

22.  Philadelphia Eagles: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Marquise Lee, WR, USC

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

25. ***TRADE UP*** San Francisco 49ers: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

49ers have a lot of draft picks so they can afford to trade up. They need a corner back and with Gilbert, Dennard and Fuller already off the board they can’t afford to sit and wait for Roby to fall to them. They will easily find a trade partner in the Chargers. 49ers will have to give a third round pick to SD to move at their spot.

26. Cleveland Browns: Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA

27. New Orleans Saints: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn

28. Carolina Panthers: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

29. New England Patriots: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

30. ***TRADE DOWN*** San Diego Chargers:  Jason Verrett, CB, TCU

Drafting Verrett at 30th in no a brainer for the Chargers and they get great value. Trading down in the first round and still get a corner like Verrett is the best case scenario for the Chargers.

31. Denver Broncos: Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State

32. Seattle Seahawks: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

Tags: NFL Draft San Diego Chargers

  • ECAVILLE/Ace of Spades

    Possibilities are endless! I’m cool with Verrette. He has CHARGERS style of play.

    • Julien Bélair

      Yep He is my guy since January

  • tubbs45

    Yes, I like it… whats the exchange pick wise?
    I think that the Lions go safety with HaHa and the Cowboys pick up a big DT like Jernigan or Nix.

    Strong work.

    • Julien Bélair

      Thanks ! I think the lions would be a CB before a Safety and I don’t think Clinton-Dix worth a 10th overall pick.
      Jernigan won’t be a first rounder imo because he is absolutely useless in the passing game. About Nix..well I think we all know about his knee

  • Dave O

    Trading down is the best thing the Chargers can do in their situation this year. I hope it plays out like this.

    • Julien Bélair

      me too brother

  • NateLew

    I like the idea of trading down. We get very crappy value with San Fran though, no deal. We get a late 3rd round pick for moving our 25th pick all the way back to 56? NO THANK YOU. I understand the team can use depth and by no means should we trade up, but it’s going to be hard to find multiple starters in a draft where the top 50 prospects are gone.

    • NateLew

      You mention San Fran desperately needing the next corner off the board, but what about us? 4 corners picked and we move back a whole round? Doubt you can trust whoever falls to 56 to hold down a starting job.

      • shane

        it’s only trading chargers 1-26, for niner 1-30 and niner 3rd rounder. not THAT bad

        • NateLew

          Oh shit, brain fart on my part. I didn’t even take their 30th into account.

  • Sergio Quintero

    I would switch Bridgewater for Bortles, Teddy seems to be dropping like a rock

    • Derek

      reverse psychology, a team (buc’s,vikings,maybe steelers) want him. game tape dont lie, especially qb’s.

      • Sergio Quintero

        Teams fall in love with skill sets, Al Davis was obsessed by it, and sometimes is pays off, Kaepernick was a major project but I’m sure the Bengals who played it safe with Dalton would like another bite at that apple.

        I agree a bad pro day shouldn’t affect, but it takes a little to create a tiddlewave of bad press, and he didn’t have a big advantage over Bortles, Manziel & Carr anyway, so for me I’m guessing he’s the 3-4th QB of the board.

        It probably is in the chargers favor that Bridgewater falls, as the Jaguars appear to be super interested in him, a trade for the jaguars 2nd & 3er round picks was discussed in an article (picks 39 & 70).

        • Eli Rodriguez

          If we trade with anyone I hope its the Texans or the Jags. Their 2nd and the extra 3rd round pick would come in handy.

        • Julien Bélair

          It’s a possibility …. but I just don’t buy it

        • Derek

          That prob will happen due to teams overthinking/falling in love with skill sets. But when it comes to qb, fs,ss I think game tape is everything. Manziel and bridgewater and Carr are the only qb’s that should be in the first rd.

    • Julien Bélair

      Like I said I don’t buy it. He is NFL ready and I think this is all just smokescreen. But hey I can be wrong!

  • jjojohnsonJohnson

    Atlanta should stay pat at #6 and select the best pass rusher available Mack/Barr repeated in the 2nd Attouchu/Ford then address tackle in the 3rd for depth with the addition of Carimi/Asamoah in the offseason on top of a healthy Baker I’ll OL should be able to hold up

    • Julien Bélair

      This is one way to look at it. It is a costly trade I’ll admit that

  • Tony

    We could probably trade down again with Houston or Minnesota if they like Derek Carr. In this scenario probably Houston since they picked up an extra seconds and might want the 5 year contract for their QB of choice instead of a 4 year.

    • Julien Bélair

      yep but you might loose the chance to draft Verrett

  • SDmarm17

    would rather see us take Van Noy if we are going to trade down to 30.
