2014 NFL Mock Draft

The draft is coming up, you have your Todd McShays and Mel Kipers throwing around rubbish, Mike Mayock analysing players and the rumour mill is flowing. I am going to take an in depth look at the top 10 picks in the draft and how it will most likely fair.

"Hello and welcome to the 2014 NFL Draft...the Houston Texans are now on the clock"

Roger Goodell: With the 1st pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Houston Texans select...Blake Bortles, Quarterback, Central Florida

Bill O'Brien is an offensive guy, loves what Blake Bortles brings to the table, sees the future of the franchise taking off from day 1 by taking a quarterback. Interviewed him at his pro day, the combine and brought him in for a private workout.

5 Alternate Picks: 1. Jadaveon Clowney, 2. Johnny Manziel, 3. Khalil Mack 4. Teddy Bridgewater, 5. Greg Robinson

Roger Goodell: We have a trade to announce: the Atlanta Falcons have acquired the 2nd pick from the St Louis Rams. With the 2nd pick in the 2014 Draft the Atlanta Falcons select...Jadaveon Clowney, Defensive End, South Carolina

No brainier, win now mode, want to bolster their pass rush, do it. St Louis want another haul so the accept Atlanta's offer.

5 Alternate Picks: (Stay Put) 1. Jadaveon Clowney, 2. Greg Robinson, 3. Sammy Watkins, 4. Jake Matthews, 5. Khalil Mack

Roger Goodell: With the 3rd Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Jacksonville Jaguars select...Johnny Manziel, Quarterback, Texas A&M

The Jags have shown the most interest in Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel, Clowney and Mack would fit Gus Bradley's defence, but it is time they spend a pick on the best available QB. (Little interest shown in Bridgewater and Carr)

5 Alternate Picks: 1. Khalil Mack, 2. Derek Carr, 3. Teddy Bridgewater, 4. Greg Robinson, 5, Jake Matthews

Roger Goodell: With the 4th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Cleveland Browns select...Khalil Mack, Linebacker, Buffalo

Mike Pettine is a defensive guy, attended Mack's pro day instead of Greg Robinson's, beat writers have stated they will take a QB with either their 26th or 35th and that Sammy Watkins is unlikely.

5 Alternate Picks: 1. Derek Carr, 2. Greg Robinson, 3. Sammy Watkins, 4. Jake Matthews, 5. Teddy Bridgewater

Roger Goodell: We have a trade to announce: the Detroit Lions have acquired the 5th Pick from the Oakland Raiders. With the 5th Pick in the 2014 Draft the Detroit Lions select...Sammy Watkins, Receiver, Clemson

The Raiders have publicly stated that they are looking to trade down and too much interest has been shown in Sammy then any other player, especially the cornerbacks, linebackers, safeties and receivers, all signs point to trading up.

5 Alternate Picks (Stay put): 1. Sammy Watkins, 2. Greg Robinson, 3. Jake Matthews, 4. Mike Evans, 5. Derek Carr

Roger Goodell: With the 6th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the St Louis Rams (From Atlanta Falcons) select...Greg Robinson, Tackle, Auburn

They trade down and still get the player they would most likely have got at #2

5 Alternate Options (Falcons): 1. Jake Matthews, 2. Anthony Barr, 3. Taylor Lewan, 4. Eric Ebron, 5. Mike Evans

Roger Goodell: With the 7th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...Teddy Bridgewater, Quartberback, Louisville

Lovie Smith wants his own quarterback, he does not like Mike Glennon's potential, Josh McCown is 34 and only on a 2 year deal, they are reportedly favouring Teddy over Mike Evans and Sammy Watkins

5 Alternate Options: 1. Mike Evans, 2. Jake Matthews, 3. Derek Carr, 4. Anthony Barr, 5. Taylor Lewan

Roger Goodell: With the 8th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Minnesota Vikings select...Derek Carr, Quarterback, Fresno State

4 QB in the top 10! Yep, the Vikings apparently favour Derek Carr over Bridgewater and Norv Turner likes his arm and he fits their vertical offensive scheme

5 Alternate Options: 1. CJ Mosley, 2. Anthony Barr, 3. Mike Evans, 4. Jake Matthews, 5. Justin Gilbert

Roger Goodell: With the 9th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Buffalo Bills select...Mike Evans, Receiver, Texas A&M

Giving EJ Manuel some options to succeed in this league.

5 Alternate Options: 1. Jake Matthews, 2. Haha Clinton Dix, 3. Eric Ebron, 4. Taylor Lewan, 5. CJ Mosley

Roger Goodell: With the 10th Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Oakland Raiders (From Detroit Lions) select...Jake Matthews, Tackle, Texas A&M

They get that franchise LT, since WR, QB and the top defensive players are gone, they take the top O-Line player available as well as picking up an extra pick.

5 Alternate Options (Detroit Lions): 1. Jake Matthews, 2. Anthony Barr, 3. CJ Mosley, 4. Justin Gilbert, 5. Haha Clinton Dix or Calvin Pryor

Thanks for reading, this is my view on what the Lions will do, I based these on the info available. If the options in this mock that are available at #10 are still there if we don't trade up, I see us going BPA.
