The Texans could draft Clowney here but I don't think he has proven to have the motor to justify being the number one pick. It is all about the quarterback and
The Rams play against the 49ers and Seahawks who rush the passer very well. Greg Robinson will help negate that for the Rams in that very tough NFC West.
The Jags could go quarterback here but I expect them to give Gabbert one more season. Clowney if he can be motivated to play hard could be a NFL pass rushing beast and the Jags won't pass him up.
The Browns will pull the trigger on Johnny Football and hope he is mature and good enough to be a franchise quarterback.
Bortles falls to the Raiders in this 2014 NFL mock draft and they won't pass him up. The Raiders know a good quarterback can make up for other issues on the team.
Like the Rams the Falcons play in a division of pass rushers. Matthews will help a pathetic offensive line of the Falcons.
This is a pick make on potential and Anthony Barr has plenty of it. Barr only played one year of defense in college so he is raw but very talented.
The Vikings may well try to move up for one of the top three quarterbacks or down a few spots to pick Carr. If the Vikings hold in place then Zimmer will want a pass rushing linebacker and Mack fits the bill.
The Bills could go skill position on offense here but it all starts up front and Lewan is the best tackle left on the board in my 2014 NFL mock draft.
The Lions need a weapon opposite of Megatron and another skilled wideout will help their quarterback prove he was worth all that money.
The Titans need somebody to do what Kenny Britt never did and Lee is a good pick here.
The Giants will go offensive tackle if a good one falls but their once vaunted defensive line got old. Jernigan will fit in nicely here.
The man with the funny name will stiffen up the secondary for the Rams for years to come.
With Charles Tillman possibly leaving as a free agent the Bears draft the best corner still on the board in my 2014 mock draft.
The Steelers get a big time target for Big Ben to throw to.
The Ravens jump on the best wideout left in a draft that has some nice ones.
The Cowboys could go pass rusher here but Pryor would be hard to pass up.
The Jets could go WR here but Ebron is going to be a special player and probably does not hang out in parking lots like Kellen Winslow.
The Dolphins desperately need offensive linemen who don't bully or be bullied so Martin is a no brainer here.
Kouandjio can play right away for the Arizona Cardinals who struggle to block on offense.
Nix is a solid pick here for a Packers team that needs defense in the worst way.
The eagles could go with a defensive back here but if Mosley is here he will shore up a bad linebacking unit.
The Chiefs need offensive skill weapons in the worst way and Beckham is the best still around in my 2014 NFL mock/
Shazier stays close to where he played his college ball as he joins the Bengals and a new defensive coordinator.
The Chargers address their biggest need with cornerback Roby who should start right away.
Jordan Matthews is a distant cousin of Jerry Rice. Matthews has good size and decent speed but will struggle getting off the line until he learns the pro game.
Tuitt is a beast who can play in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense and will make the Saints happy they picked him here.
The Texans give
30 New England Patriots Colt Lyerla TE-
With one tight end in prison and one hurt all the time the Patriots offense really suffered. Lyerla will help solve that problem in a big way.
Verrett will help replace Champ Bailey who will probably retire.
Russell Wilson gets a much needed wide receiver in a draft that is loaded with good ones.
