2014 NFL Mock Draft 5.0 (Final)

Number 17: Baltimore Ravens – Zack Martin | OT | Notre Dame

With Eugene Monroe officially locked up the Baltimore Ravens offensive line is beginning to look a bit more sturdy. The Ravens also went out and traded for now former Buccaneer offensive lineman Jeremy Zuttah; Zuttah can play either guard or tackle. But even with the aggressiveness of Baltimore to fix the line, they still have a huge need at right tackle, as they lost Michael Oher to the Tennessee Titans. Drafting Zack Martin can help fill the need at the right tackle position. However, one of the best traits that the Ravens will be getting with Martin is his flexibility. He can tackle, and, if needed, he can be kicked inside to play guard.

Number 18: New York Jets – Odell Beckham Jr. | WR | Louisiana State

The Jets really lack an outside receiver, making the position a major area of concern heading into next season. They brought in Eric Decker, but he is more of a slot receiver and not a true number one. Odell Beckham Jr. is a player that was able to use his elite speed and athleticism to make big plays for the Tigers last season. After an impressive season and great workouts, Beckham has shot up the draft boards of many. He is very good at creating separation between him and the defender and is even better after the catch.

Number 19: Miami Dolphins - Eric Ebron | TE| North Carolina 

Last season, the Miami Dolphins offensive line was absolutely horrid. Not only did they fail to produce on the field, but they also served as a huge distraction for the team due to the off the field antics of a few starters. The Dolphins quickly attempted to fix the problem as they traded away Jonathan Martin and refused to re-sign either John Jerry or Richie Incognito. They brought in Pro Bowl left tackle Brandon Albert and will look to add to the line during the draft. However, with that being said, there are still other positions that they could add to. Miami already has Charles Clay at the tight end position, so adding another one would greatly improve the offense. Eric Ebron would be a very good compliment to Clay. They can then go out and draft a right tackle in the second round and add a veteran guard come training camp.

Number 20: Arizona Cardinals – Ryan Shazier | LB | Ohio State 

The Arizona Cardinals are a team that has made major upgrades heading into next season. They went out and brought in players that filled their needs. They needed a cornerback, so they brought in Antonio Cromartie. They needed a new left tackle, so they went out and signed Jared Veldheer. The one position that they might have digressed at was the linebacker position, as they let Karlos Dansby walk. With a need for an inside linebacker, it would make sense for Arizona to select Ryan Shazier. In his last season at Ohio State, Shazier recorded 143 tackles with 22.5 of them resulting in a loss. What is even more impressive is what Shazier was able to do off the football field. In the past few months he has added a substantial amount of weight, while maintaining his superb speed. At his Pro Day, Shazier ran a  4.4 forty. His speed and ability to cover a large amount of ground will make him a perfect fit for the Arizona Cardinals.

Number 21: Green Bay Packers – C.J. Mosley | LB | Alabama 

Inside linebacker is a huge need for the Green Bay Packers and this pick could easily be flipped with the prior selection of the Arizona Cardinals. C.J. Mosley is your prototypical inside linebacker. This is the most logical pick for a very logical franchise.

Number 22: Philadelphia Eagles – Timmy Jernigan | DT| Florida State 

The Philadelphia Eagle could use this draft to get increase the size of the defensive line. Timmy Jernigan is an absolute beast. He is a 300 hundred pound man who stays very light on his feet. Jernigan isn’t the best pass rusher in the draft, but his ability to draw a double team up front is something that the Eagles would love have.

Number 23: Kansas City Chiefs – Marqise Lee | WR | Southern Cal

Outside of Dwayne Bowe, the Kansas City Chiefs really lack a true play making receiver for Alex Smith to throw to. Marqise Lee is very good route-runner and extremely quick on his feet. Drafting Lee would give another viable option opposite of Dwayne Bowe.

Number 24: Cincinnatti Bengals – Dee Ford | DE | Auburn 

The Cincinnati Bengals are a very deep team. They don’t have a lot of holes that they need to fill; however, they could use another pass rusher. They lost Michael Johnson to free agency, so expect them to fill his spot by drafting an end with the twenty-forth pick. Dee Ford is a very good prospect coming out of Auburn and is someone who the Cincinnati Bengals would love to have.

Number 25: San Diego Chargers – Kyle Fuller | CB | Virginia Tech

Despite making it to the playoffs last season, the San Diego Chargers had real problems in stopping the pass. Although they did re-sign and sign a couple of cornerbacks, drafting a young prospect would be extremely beneficiary. They play Peyton Manning twice a year, so having depth at the cornerback position is a pretty good thing to have. Fuller can come in and start day one, making an immediate impact on the team.

Number 26: Cleveland Browns (from Indy) – Teddy Bridgewater | QB | Louisville 

This is the pick that I was referring to earlier. Will Bridgewater be here at twenty-six? Possibly. If he is, the Cleveland Browns will obviously take him. They have done a really good job at filling out their team this offseason, and if their draft picks pan out, the AFC North can get really interesting this year.

Number 27: New Orleans Saints – Bradley Roby | CB | Ohio State

As long as Rob Ryan is the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, they need to have an abundance of cornerbacks. In Ryan’s system, cornerbacks are often left out on an island with their receiver. It is important that the Saints add-on another cornerback to this roster who excels in man-to-man coverage. Despite not having the ideal size that teams look for at the cornerback position, Roby has world class speed and is extremely efficient in coverage. Luckily for the Saints, this year’s cornerback class is VERY deep.

Number 28: Carolina Panthers – Morgan Moses | OT | Virginia 

With the sudden retirement of Jordan Gross, the Panthers must immediately find a replacement at the left tackle position. With Morgan Moses being the best available tackle remaining, the Panthers must pull the trigger. They have other wholes that need to be filled at the wide out position; however, they can always fill those whole during the second day of the draft. Protecting Newton should be first priority.

Number 29: New England Patriots –  Louis Nix III | DT | Notre Dame

It is likely that the Patriots will bring in another young defensive lineman to add to their rotation. Coach Belichick loves his defensive lineman and there is a lot to like with Nix. Nix is a BIG dude and would be an ideal match for the Patriots. You would think that the Patriots are on the lookout for a future replacement for Vince Wilfork. If they play their cards right, New England could very easily find it right here.

Number 30: San Francisco 49′ers – Jason Verrett | CB | Texas Christian 

The San Francisco 49′ers will be looking to add some youth to the cornerback position. Jason Verrett has many traits that San Francisco might find attractive. He is very fast and has excellent coverage skills. He is also quite versatile, as he can play anywhere from the outside to the nickel position. One part of the team that the 49′ers would like to work on is the secondary. They can continue to do so by drafting Jason Verrett.

Number 31: Denver Broncos – Xavier Su’a-Filo | G | UCLA 

The Broncos did an exceptional job in terms of filing out their team during the free agency period. They were able to bring in big time players with T.J. Ward, Demarcus Ware and Aqib Talib. They were even able to fill out the loss of Eric Decker by signing Emmanuel Sanders (who is an upgrade in my opinion). The only thing remaining for the Broncos to continue to work on is the offensive line. As long as they have Peyton Manning, it is imperative that they keep him upright. Su’a-Filo is the best offensive guard in the draft and with him being available to the Broncos, this pick should be a no brainer.

Number 32: Seattle Seahawks - Jeremiah Attaochu | DE | Georgia Tech

The Seattle Seahawks have a history of building their team through the draft and not spending a prodigious amount of money on free agents. They let Red Bryant and Chris Clemmons both walk, which puts a priority on drafting another pass rusher. Jeremiah Attaochu is very athletic and has extremely long arms. He gets off of the line very quickly and excels in rushing the quarterback — which is just what the Seahawks like.

  • Jan Bennett

    You have the Steelers & the Chargers selecting the same player. Come on man!

    • Julien Bélair

      Haha sloppy work

      • tubbs45

        They cloned Gilbert!

    • DiscountPCRepair SATX

      No way the BEARS take Pryor over Gilbert or Clinton-Dix.

      • Peter Maiz

        I really agree. I don’t think Pryor will go that early, I see him going early 2nd round, mark my word.

        • DiscountPCRepair SATX

          I like Bucannon more than Pryor

    • Peter Maiz

      Proofreading his list would have helped, but I like this mock, apparently well researched. Justen should think of Cornell for a school in journalism, unless, of course, he wants Florida to party.Take this from an old man like myself.

    • Justen Rosenberg

      The twenty-fifth pick is supposed to be Kyle Fuller, not Justin Gilbert. Sorry for the mistake..

  • TWing27

    Johnny football over Mack? I think I am gonna be sick if Oakland takes a QB at all.

  • Jacob

    I don’t see the Chiefs taking Lee with Roby, Verrett, Xavier Su’a-Filo, and Cooks still on the board.

    Also, you had two teams taking Gilbert. Maybe you should wait until you’re fully awake to create a mock draft?

  • Old Frog

    Dix over Martin at 16? Boy I hope not.

  • chas territo

    The Bills need a play maker before an OT, especially when there are so many good to great possibilities available and cheaper in later rounds. The play maker they need is Eric Ebron not an OT.He is the best FIT, notice upper case for fit? That’s what we need first not the OT! He presents more on the field than say Evans. Opposing teams willl have nightmares thinking how to cover him, LB’s can’t cover him, CB’s can’t cover him and he will be too hard to tackle by Safeties as well. He will open up the middle for short, medium routes, cuts, slants, in’s and outs and who can cover him in the Red Zone? I have written why he is the best fit for my Bills, informatively and knowledgably, so there it is, why he should be our pick at #9. GO BILLS!!

  • Scott Norris

    Justin Gilbert is gonna be a busy man! Off the board by the tenth pick, then picked at 15, and 25? Is he a superhero? If he is really that good, maybe he should go number one overall. Sloppy, might wanna start looking for another job.

    • BlueBoltFan

      Ha! I’m assuming one of those picks is supposed to be Kyle Fuller. As a chargers fan I’m happy either way.

      • Justen Rosenberg

        The twenty-fifth pick is supposed to be Kyle Fuller, not Justin Gilbert. Sorry for the mistake.

      • Jacob911

        Yes lol

  • cjedvm

    This is what happens when you depend on spellcheck to correct your hole article.

    • chas territo

      Hole is empty space. Whole is complete, entire or all?? Use spell check, not to complain when YOU can’t spell your damn self! GO BILLS!!

      • cjedvm

        Really! Seems Bills fans don’t understand ironey, either. fool.

        • chas territo

          No, not irony, irony has a touch of humor. What you wrote was a misspelled word, which is not funny, further establishing you as a bad speller and now not knowing definitions of words you again, misspell. Then to top it off you show how immature you are. Fool? Hardly. Intelligent or smart, yes. I don’t have to resort to name calling because someone criticizes me unlike you. So, get a dictionary, they sell them at Barnes and Noble, you can even buy the cheaper paperback version or your local Library will allow you to check it out free for 3 weeks. GO BILLS!!

          • cjedvm

            Not much to do, eh. A little creapy, getting this worked up. Go Billls!

          • chas territo

            Little youngster, please stop making a dummy out of yourself with your atrocious misspelling. It’s spelled CR e e P Y, not creapy. Your illiteracy makes me laugh even tho you try. lmao@ you. GO BILLS!!

  • Letterman007

    I just can’t see the Browns picking an OT and having the biggest expense on the team being the O line. They need playmakers on the offense. Someone who can score with the ball. I realize the line, especially the right side, needs help! But not in the first two rounds of the draft!!

  • PANTTERA

    WoW, this draft order is so far from the mock universe it’s either brilliant or insane. I do believe if early teams want the top 5 QBs they better get him in 1st. I like this early QB rush. Mack to ATL with not trade,make it happen Justen.

  • Peter Maiz

    Well, if the safeties are gone for the Packers, it would be nice to have a miracle so we can select Bucannon on the 2nd round. I know he won’t be around but rumor has it that he has every single quality Ha Ha or Pryor have, perhaps needing a bit of tweeking. Bucannon is faster than both and shows strong tackling qualities.
    I like Pryor as a safety but really think he’ll go late first round, early second round. TT will go for Mosley or Shazier, which ever one is available.

  • metalhead65

    I like the safety pick by the bears just that you have the wrong one. I like dix better. he is bigger faster and stronger and more importantly has faced tougher competition than pryor. pryor may eventually become a very good safety but the bears need one who already is and can get better. doesn’t matter how hard you hit if they catch the ball. the object is to prevent them from doing that.

  • Jacob911

    Surprising to see attaochu in the first but makes sense

  • Buddy guy

    I seriously doubt the Bears pick prior when there’s three better players on the board

  • Buddy guy

    ***pryor
