NFL DRAFT 2014: DAY 2 MOCK

Here is my post 1st round mock.  I have the needs that were filled in the 1st round highlighted.

SECOND ROUND

33. HOUSTON TEXANS-RA'SHADE HAGEMAN-DE/DT-MINNESOTA

NEEDS: QB, PR, ILB, RT

34. WASHINGTON REDSKINS-MORGAN MOSES-OT-VIRGINIA 
The Redskins need to protect RG IIII. Moses is a NFL ready OT that can start day one at RT. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 34, 66
NEEDS:  SS, RT/G, CB, ILB, #3 PR 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: RUN/ZONE BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: REACTIVE 3-4 PRESS MAN

NEEDS: QB, LT, DT, #1 WR, FS, LG, PR

37. ATLANTA FALCONS-DEMARCUS LAWRENCE-PR/OLB-BOISE 

The Falcons need a pass rusher and Lawrence provides solid value here.  If they draft Lawrence and Robinson, they will fill their two key needs. Atlanta looks like they are moving to a 3-4 this year so Lawrence would be a great fit as an OLB.
NEEDS:  LT, PR-OLB, TE, C 

38. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-JIMMY GAROPPOLO-QB-EASTERN ILLINOIS 

Tampa gets a solid developmental QB here. Josh McCown is 35

NEEDS: PR, QB, RT, LG, #2 WR, Speed RB

40. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (From trade DOWN last night with MIN)-TIMMY JERNIGAN-DT-FSU
Seattle is smart enough to take the best player in the board that can immediately help them defend the title. The Seahwaks are always willing to take chances on high risk but ultra talented players. 
NEEDS:  WR, RT, DT, RG

41. BUFFALO BILLS-KONY EALY-DE/PR-MISSOURI 
The Bills add a pass rusher to help out Mario Williams. Ealy provides good value here

NEEDS: RT, TE, Both S Spots, LG, WR 

42. TENNESSEE TITANS-TRE MASON-RB-AUBURN 

The dude was the best RB in the nation last year.  He made the best defenses in the SEC look average and torched FSU in the title game as well.  He can start from day one and make Titans fans forget about the inconsistent Chris Johnson.
NEEDS:  CB, Speed RB, PR-OLB, QB, OT upgrade 

43. NEW YORK GIANTS-JOEL BITONIO-OT-NEVADA
A big man to protect Eli.

NEEDS:  DS, CB, LG, #3 WR or TE  

46. PITTSBURGH STEELERS-LOUIS NIX-NT/DT-NOTRE DAME
A big man in the middle for the Steelers 3-4 defense. Nix is too good to pass up here
NEEDS: CB, Big WR, young TE, ILB, DE 


47. DALLAS COWBOYS-SCOTT CRIGHTON-DE/PR

The Cowboys need a pass rusher. Crighton is a great fit for a 4-3.

48. BALTIMORE RAVENS-XAVIER SU'A FILO-G-UCLA

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome will always looks to get the best player available.

NEEDS: #1 WR, CB, PR-OLB, TE, RG, FS

50. MIAMI DOLPHINS-LAMARCUS JOYNER-CB/SS-FSU

Joyner is a Miami native that can help at slot corner and maybe even play strong safety. The perfect guy to matchup with the Julian Edelman and Jeremy Kerley type WR's  
NEEDS:  RT, MLB, WLB, RG, Power RB, DB Depth 

51. CHICAGO BEARS-WILL SUTTON-DT-ARIZONA ST. 

The Bears helped the secondary in round 1, now it's time to get some help on the D-Line. Sutton has great size to be an ideal 3 technique in a Tampa 2
NEEDS: DS, DT-3T, CB

52. ARIZONA CARDINALS-KYLE VAN NOY-OLB/PR-BYU

The Cards could use another pass rusher. 
NEEDS: PR-OLB, SS, 3-4 DE, ILB, backup QB

San Francisco has had their eye on this guy
NEEDS:  Speed WR, Nickel Corner, PR Depth, NT, SS

NFL DRAFT 2014: MY FINAL MOCK!!!!!!!

FIRST ROUND

1. HOUSTON TEXANS-JADEVEON CLOWNEY-PR/DE/OLB-SOUTH CAROLINA 

The Texans will likely draft the Clowney. This is the smart move as Clowney and JJ Watt can make a pass rush duo as good as any in the NFL. Clowney has drawn comparisons to former #1 Texans pick Mario Williams. I think he has the chance to be another Robert Quinn.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 1, 33.65
NEEDS: QB, PR, ILB, RT
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING SCHEME
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: 3-4 ZONE 

2. ST. LOUIS RAMS-JAKE MATTHEWS-OT-TEXAS A&M

I don't want to go chalk. Many mocks have the Rams taking OT Greg Robinson out of Auburn. The interesting thing is that the Rams don't need a LT they need a RT. Jake Long is a solid LT. I think the Rams will go with the more NFL ready prospect in Matthews. Head coach Jeff Fisher coached Jake's father, Hall of Fame guard Bruce Matthews in Tennessee.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 2, 13, 44, 75
NEEDS: #1 WR, FS, RT, LCB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: FAST FLOWING 4-3 PRESS MAN 

3. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS-SAMMY WATKINS-WR-CLEMSON

Watkins is the play maker the Jags have lacked on the outside. He would instantly be the most talented WR in franchise history. The Jags can always trade back into the 1st for a QB or wait until #39 and draft a good pass rusher.  Plenty should be available (Kyle Van Noy, Demarcus Lawrence, Scott Crighton or maybe even Dee Ford). Khalil Mack would be a great choice here as well.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 3. 39, 70
NEEDS: PR, QB, RT, LG, #2 WR, Speed RB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: RUN 1st/MAN BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: FAST FLOWING 4-3 UNDER PRESS ZONE

4. ATLANTA FALCONS (Projected Trade UP with CLV for picks #6 and #68-GREG ROBINSON-OT-AUBURN
Trading up to the #1 pick for Clowney will cost way too much.  Giving up a 3rd to move up for a road grater like Robinson will be a smarter trade. The Falcons need a someone to protect franchise QB Matt Ryan and someone to open holes for the running game as well.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 6, 37, 68
NEEDS:  LT, PR-OLB, TE, C 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS 1st/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: HYBRID 3-4 ZONE 


5. OAKLAND RAIDERS-KHALIL MACK-OLB/DE/PR-BUFFALO

Oakland could draft an OT like Taylor Lewan or Zach Martin. But ultimately the smarter choice is Mack. Mack will be put in a position to succeed with newly signed pass rush mentors Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley. The Raiders can line him up a both DE and have him split time at SLB with Sio Moore. At #5 he would be a mini-steal.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 5, 36, 67
NEEDS: QB, LT, DT, #1 WR, FS, LG
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PHYSICAL 4-3 PRESS MAN 

6. CLEVELAND BROWNS(Projected trade DOWN with ATL)-MIKE EVANS-WR-TEXAS A&M
The Browns go with the athlete and play maker from Texas A&M.  NOT the one you think though. Evans, not Johnny Football is the choice here. I think new GM Ray Farmer knows he can stay put at #26 or move up to get his new QB. Evans and Josh Gordon could be the Brandon Marshall/Alshon Jeffrey duo of the AFC.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 4, 26, 35, 71, 83
NEEDS: QB, #2 CB, #2 WR, ILB, Speed RB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: HYBRID 3-4 PRESS MAN 


7. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-JOHNNY MANZIEL-QB-TEXAS A&M

New QB Josh McCown is 35 years old. He's NOT the long term answer at QB. Manziel will need time to develop but he may be worth the risk with his play making skills. Tampa can then instantly trade Mike Glennon.   
Picks in first 3 rounds: 7, 38, 69
NEEDS: #2 WR, SLB, RG, QB 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PRESSURE 4-3 TAMPA 2

8. MINNESOTA VIKINGS-AARON DONALD-DT-PITTSBURGH
The Vikings need a franchise QB. However new coach Mike Zimmer is a defensive guy and will try to communicate with GM Rick Spielman to draft a guy that reminds many of Zimmer's former Pro Bowl DT Geno Atkins. Donald could pair Shariff Floyd to form one of the best young DT duos in the league.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 8, 40, 72, 96
NEEDS: QB, MLB, #WLB, LG, #3 WR, DE
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/MAN BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: HYBRID 4-3 MAN  


 9. BUFFALO BILLS-TAYLOR LEWAN-OT-MICHIGAN 

The Bills could use another OT to compliment current LT Cordy Glenn. Lewan is the most athletic OT in this class. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 9, 41, 73
NEEDS: RT, TE, Both S Spots, LG
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: RUN 1st/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: WIDE 9 4-3 PRESS ZONE

10. DETROIT LIONS-HA HA CLINTON-DIX-DS-BAMA

The Lions have major problems on the back end.  In a division with the Packers and Bears, they need help guarding WR's.  Ha Ha isn't quite Earl Thomas, but he has an opportunity to become a Pro Bowl dual high safety that can cover or play in the box.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 10, 45, 76
NEEDS:  DS, CB, LG, #3 WR 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PRESSURE 4-3 ZONE 

11. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (Projected Trade up with TEN for picks #30, #56, #94 and a 2015 2nd round pick)-ODELL BECKHAM JR.-WR-LSU

San Francisco trades up to get a WR that can stretch the field. Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree are very good WRs, but neither has the deep speed to blow the top off of a defense. Beckham Jr. has 4.38 speed and is also a good route runner with good hands. The 49ers have 6 picks in the top 100, so a trade up is very likely. Tennessee only has 6 total picks and no 3rd round pick so they may be looking to trade down for additional assets.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 30, 56, 61, 77, 94, 100
NEEDS:  Speed WR, Nickel Corner, PR Depth, NT, SS 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PHYSICAL 3-4 ZONE 


12. NEW YORK GIANTS-ZACH MARTIN-OT-NOTRE DAME

The Giants can fill a huge hole on the O-Line with Martin. His ability to play either OT or G is what makes him so appealing here. The G-Men need to give Eli more time in the pocket. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 19, 49, 81
NEEDS: DT, WLB, RT/G, RB, LDE
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PRESSURE 4-3 ZONE

13. ST. LOUIS RAMS-JUSTIN GILBERT-CB-OK ST.

Gilbert is a big, athletic, physical corner that can become a great compliment to their smaller yet ultra talented corner Janorris Jenkins. Coach Jeff Fisher knows how to get the most out of defensive backs.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 2, 13, 44, 75
NEEDS: #1 WR, FS, RT, LCB

14. CHICAGO BEARS-CALVIN PRYOR-DS-LOUISVILLE 

The Bears need help at safety.  They can wait to grab a corner in the 2nd or 3rd as there's great depth in the corner class this year.  However it will be very had to find a hard-hitting safety like Pryor later in the draft.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 14, 51, 82
NEEDS: DS, DT-3T, CB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: FAST FLOWING 4-3 MAN 

15. PITTSBURGH STEELERS-DARQUEZE DENNARD-CB-MICHIGAN ST. 

A tough, physical press corner to guard AJ Green and Josh Gordon twice a year.  Incumbent CB Ike Taylor needs help.
Picks in first round: 15, 46, 97
NEEDS: CB, Big WR, young TE, ILB, DE 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS ZONE 

16. DALLAS COWBOYS-ANTHONY BARR-PR/DE/OLB-UCLA
The Cowboys need a pass rusher to fill the void left by the loss of DeMarcus Ware.  Barr is raw, but may develop into a stud pass rusher one day.  He has the size and length to be a 4-3 end or a 3-4 OLB.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 16, 47, 78
NEEDS: DT-3T, PR-DE, WLB, SS
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 4-3 TAMPA 2 ZONE 

17. BALTIMORE RAVENS-ERIC EBRON-TE-UNC

Ebron is too good for GM and Hall of Fame TE Ozzie Newsome to pass up. Flacco has good players on the outside in Torry Smith and newly acquired Steve Smith. He needs someone that can stretch the middle of the field.    
Picks in first 3 rounds: 17, 48, 79, 99
NEEDS:  RT, DS, ILB, DE, CB, C/G Depth, #3 WR
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS MAN

18. NEW YORK JETS-MARQUISE LEE-WR-USC

The Jets need a big time pass catcher to compliment 2nd year QB Geno Smith.  Lee is a smooth route runner with great hands and solid deep speed. He comes from a big program and is from Los Angeles so he won't be phased by the New York media and bight lights.  Lee has a chance to become everything Jets fans hoped Santonio Holmes would be.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 18, 49, 80
NEEDS: #1 WR, CB, PR-OLB, TE, RG, FS
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS MAN 

19. CLEVELAND BROWNS (projected trade UP with MIA for picks #26 and #83)-DEREK CARR-QB-FRESNO ST. 
Twice in the past eight years the Browns waited to take a QB with their second pick in the 1st round. They traded back into the first round for Brady Quinn in 2007 and took Brandon Weeden in 2012. Neither pick worked out well. They hope the 3rd time is a charm. Carr will be in a great position to succeed with Josh Gordan, Joe Thomas, Jordan Cameron and projected pick Mike Evans.   
Picks in first 3 rounds: 4, 26, 35, 71, 83
NEEDS: QB, #2 CB, #2 WR, ILB, Speed RB

20. ARIZONA CARDINALS-BLAKE BORTLES-QB-UCF
The Cards have done a good job in recent drafts adding young pieces to help them. They need to add depth on D. However, if Bortles slips all the way to #20, it will be very hard for them to pass up on him. Bortles has been compared to Big Ben. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians coached Big Ben in Pittsburgh, so he knows how to develop a QB like Bortles.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 20, 52, 84
NEEDS: PR-OLB, SS, 3-4 DE, ILB, young backup QB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 MAN

21. GREEN BAY PACKERS-RYAN SHAZIER-WLB/ILB-OHIO ST. 

The Pack get an ultra athletic LB that can play all over the field.  He would be a great compliment inside to AJ Hawk.  Shazier also has the versatility to rush the passer and cover TE's.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 21, 53, 85, 98
NEEDS: ILB, FS, TE, C, #3 WR
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS MAN

22. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES-KYLE FULLER-CB-VIRGINIA TECH
It seems most mocks have the Eagles taking a big WR. That would be a nice luxury pick. But the Eagles MUST upgrade their horrible secondary first. Fuller is a big time corner with great length and ball skills.  In a division with Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Pierre Garcon and former Eagle Desean Jackson, having a shut down corner is a must. Fill a key need here and then wait until the 2nd round to draft a big WR. Their will be plenty available.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 22, 54, 86
NEEDS:  CB, SS, Young PR, Big WR, OL Depth 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: FAST FLOWING 4-3 UNDER 

23. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS-BRANDIN COOKS-WR-OREGON ST. 

What a difference a year makes!  KC went from picking 1st last year, to the playoffs this year.  The Chiefs still need a lot of help at WR.  Cooks would be the perfect target for weak armed QB Alex Smith.  Cooks has great ability to make plays in space.  He will be an instant upgrade over Donnie Avery.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 23, 87
NEEDS: WR, RG, FS, #3 CB 3-4 DE Depth
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: RUN 1st/ZONE BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS MAN

24. CINCINNATI BENGALS-CJ MOSLEY-ILB-BAMA 

The Bengals biggest need is corner so they may go with Bradley Roby or Jason Verrett. However, if Mosley is still here at #24, they should add they play maker out of Alabama. He can team up with Vontaze Burfict to form a LB duo that can be very similar to Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman in San Francisco. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 24, 55, 88
NEEDS:  CB, RDE, SLB, C/G Depth, #3 WR
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: WILL BECOME BALANCED AGAIN/MAN BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: HYBRID 4-3 MAN

25. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS-LOUIS NIX-NT/DT-NOTRE DAME
The Chargers need a starting NT to anchor their 3-4 defense.  Nix would be put in a great situation to succeed with great talent right behind him in ILB Donald Butler, All-Pro S Eric Weddle and we can't forget his former college teammate ILB Manti Te'o.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 25, 57, 89
NEEDS:  CB, NT, ILB Depth, C/G Depth, Young TE, SS
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/MAN BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 3-4 PRESS ZONE

26. MIAMI DOLPHINS (projected trade down with CLV)-MORGAN MOSES-OT-VIRGINIA 
They Dolphins need an OT that can start right away at RT and eventually move to LT. Moses isn't the sexiest pick, but he would be the smartest pick here.   
Picks in first 3 rounds: 19, 50, 81
NEEDS:  RT, MLB, WLB, RG, Power RB, DB Depth 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 4-3 PRESS MAN 

27. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (projected trade UP with NO for picks #39 and #70-TEDDY BRIDGEWATER-QB-LOUISVILLE
The Saints are rumored to be enamored with C/G Marcus Martin. Translation, the Saints WILL trade down. It makes sense for Jacksonville to trade up and get their QB of the future before their division rivals Tennessee and Houston can get Bridgewater. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 3. 39, 70
NEEDS: PR, QB, RT, LG, #2 WR, Speed RB

28. CAROLINA PANTHERS-JOEL BITONIO-OT/G-NEVADA
Like the Eagles, it makes more sense for the Panthers to wait to take a #1 WR given the depth of this class. They cannot afford to wait on an OT that will protect QB Cam Newton. Bitonio is a safe/solid choice here.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 28, 60, 92
NEEDS: LT, #1 WR, CB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/ZONE BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: REACTIVE 4-3 ZONE 


29. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS-RA'SHEDE HAGEMAN-DE/DT-MINNESOTA
They need help on the D-Line with Wilfork getting long in the tooth, large in the belly and short in the knees
Picks in first 3 rounds: 19, 62, 93
NEEDS: DL, C/G, TE 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PRESSURE 4-3 HYBRID PRESS ZONE 


30. TENNESSEE TITANS (projected trade DOWN with SF)-JASON VERRETT-CB-TCU

Trading down works out for the Titans as they trade down and still get a top notch corner that can contribute right away as a nickel corner.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 11, 42
NEEDS:  CB, Speed RB, PR-OLB, QB
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: BALANCED/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PHYSICAL 3-4 HYBID MAN 


31. DENVER BRONCOS-BRADLEY ROBY-CB-OHIO ST.

Good corner that has slipped due to character concerns and inconsistent play.  The Broncos will take him here as it provides solid value for their biggest need.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 31, 63, 95
NEEDS:  CB, FS, MLB,  Speed RB, #3 WR, DL Depth
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: PASS/MAN BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: ATTACKING 4-3 MAN  

32. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS-TIMMY JERNIGAN-DT-FSU

Seattle is smart enough to take the best player in the board that can immediately help them defend the title.  Jernigan can be a rotational DT at first, and then become the eventual replacement for Red Bryant. Pete Carroll can get the most out of this guy.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 32, 64
NEEDS:  WR, RT, DT, RG
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: POWER RUN/ZONE BLOCKING 
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: FAST FLOWING PRESS ZONE 



SECOND ROUND

33. HOUSTON TEXANS-TOM SAVAGE-QB-PITTSBURGH  

The Texans wait till the 2nd to get their QB of the future.  They hope this big QB with a big arm can turn into the next Joe Flacco.
NEEDS: QB, PR, ILB, RT

34. WASHINGTON REDSKINS-JaWUAN JAMES-OT-TENNESSEE
The Redskins need to protect RG IIII. James is a NFL ready OT that can start day one at RT. 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 34, 66
NEEDS:  SS, RT/G, CB, ILB, #3 PR 
OFFENSIVE SCHEME: RUN/ZONE BLOCKING
DEFENSIVE SCHEME: REACTIVE 3-4 PRESS MAN

35. CLEVELAND BROWNS-CARLOS HYDE-RB-OHIO ST

36. OAKLAND RAIDERS-CODY LATIMER-WR-INDIANA

Latimer is big (6-3/215) and fast (4.44 speed) that can come in and help the passing game.  Right now Rod Streater and free agent pickup James Jones are the Raiders top two WR's.  New QB Matt Schaub needs weapons on the outside
NEEDS: QB, LT, DT, #1 WR, FS, LG

37. ATLANTA FALCONS-DEMARCUS LAWRENCE-PR/OLB-BOISE 

The Falcons need a pass rusher and Lawrence provides solid value here.  If they draft Lawrence and Robinson, they will fill their two key needs. Atlanta looks like they are moving to a 3-4 this year so Lawrence would be a great fit as an OLB.

38. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-DEE FORD-DE/PR-AUBURN

Tampa gets an absolute steal here. Like Robert Mathis, he can become an ultra productive, high motor pass rusher  

39. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS(trade DOWN with JAX)-MARCUS MARTIN-C/G-USC

Picks in first 3 rounds: 9, 41, 73
NEEDS: RT, TE, Both S Spots, LG

42. TENNESSEE TITANS-TRE MASON-RB-AUBURN 

The dude was the best RB in the nation last year.  He made the best defenses in the SEC look average and torched FSU in the title game as well.  He can start from day one and make Titans fans forget about the inconsistent Chris Johnson.
NEEDS:  CB, Speed RB, PR-OLB, QB

43. NEW YORK GIANTS-JACE AMARO-TE-TEXAS TECH
A big pass catcher for Eli. 
NEEDS: DT, WLB, RT/G, RB, LDE

44. ST. LOUIS RAMS-DEONE BUCHANON-DS-WASHINGTON ST.

NEEDS: #1 WR, FS, RT, LCB

45. DETROIT LIONS-WESTON RICHBURG-C/G-COLORADO ST. 

The Lions current center, Dominic Raiola is 35 years old.  Richburg can start at LG right away and replace Raiola in the next 2-3 years
NEEDS:  DS, CB, LG, #3 WR 

46. PITTSBURGH STEELERS--KELVIN BENJAMIN-WR-FSU
A big raw target for Big Ben and a great red zone threat that can compliment WR Antonio Brown. The Steelers are rumored to like Benjamin. They hope he slips all the way down here. They may need to trade up to get him though. 
NEEDS: CB, Big WR, young TE, ILB, DE 


47. DALLAS COWBOYS-DOMINIQUE EASLEY-DT-FLORIDA

The Cowboys will be very lucky if Easley slips here.  He would be the perfect 3T-DT in Dallas' Tampa 2 defense.  Injuries have dropped him into the second round.

NEEDS:  RT, DS, ILB, DE, CB, C/G Depth, #3 WR

49. NEW YORK JETS-KEITH McGILL-CB-UTAH

NEEDS: #1 WR, CB, PR-OLB, TE, RG, FS

50. MIAMI DOLPHINS-LAMARCUS JOYNERY-CB/SS-FSU

Joyner is a Miami native that can help at slot corner and maybe even play strong safety. The perfect guy to matchup with the Julian Edelman and Jeremy Kerley type WR's  
NEEDS:  RT, MLB, WLB, RG, Power RB, DB Depth 

51. CHICAGO BEARS-STEPHON TUITT-DT-NOTRE DAME

The Bears helped the secondary in round 1, now it's time to get some help on the D-Line.

NEEDS: ILB, FS, TE, C, #3 WR

54. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES-ALLEN ROBINSON-WR-PENN ST.
Chip Kelly wants a big WR, and Robinson is just that at 6-3/220.  He has drawn comparisons to Anquan Boldin with his ability to make catches while being covered.
NEEDS:  CB, SS, Young PR, Big WR, OL Depth 

55. CINCINNATI BENGALS-SCOTT CRIGHTON-DE/PR-OREGON ST.

The Bengals get a replacement for Micheal Johnson who departed in free agency.

57. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS-STANLEY JEAN BAPTISTE-CB-NEBRASKA

The Chargers need someone to help Eric Weddle in the secondary. Someone will take a chance on the 6-3/218 corner. Demaryius Thomas and Dwayne Bowe will finally be picking on someone their own size.  
NEEDS:  CB, NT, ILB Depth, C/G Depth, Young TE, SS

58. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS-DEVANTE ADAMS-WR-FRESNO ST.

DEFENSIVE SCHEME: PRESSURE 3-4 PRESS MAN

NEEDS:  Speed WR, Nickel Corner, PR Depth, NT, SS 


62. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS-DONTE MONCRIEF-WR-OLE MISS

NFL DRAFT 2014: MOCK 2.0. Matt, Tommy and Donnie Mock

FIRST ROUND

Donnie 
1. HOUSTON TEXANS-JADEVEON CLOWNEY-PR/DE/OLB-SOUTH CAROLINA 
I can be black out drunk and dumb and still know he's the best draft prospect.  I don't care about his so called lack of effort.  The talent is undeniable.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 1, 33.65
NEEDS: QB, PR, ILB, RT

Tommy
2. ST. LOUIS RAMS-GREG ROBINSON-OT-AUBURN
The Rams need to keep dick bag Bradford upright.  The Rams will try to trade the pick but if they stay put they go OT.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 2, 13, 44, 75
NEEDS: #1 WR, FS, RT, LCB

Matt
3. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS-KHALIL MACK-PR/OLB/LEO-BUFFALO
Mack is the perfect fit as the Leo in coach Gus Bradley's defense.  He is equally talented a both a pass rusher and a coverage LB.  He is the new age LB of the game today.  The Jags need a pass rusher in the worst way.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 3. 39, 70
NEEDS: PR, QB, RT, LG, #2 WR, Speed RB

Donnie 
4. CLEVELAND BROWNS-SAMMY WATKINS-WR-CLEMSON 
Too create the best young WR duo in the NFL.  Plus there's no true franchise QB in this draft.  Give Brian Hoyer a chance!!!!
Picks in first 3 rounds: 4, 26, 35, 71, 83
NEEDS: QB, #2 CB, #2 WR, ILB, Speed RB

Tommy
5. OAKLAND RAIDERS-ODELL BECKHAM JR-WR-LSU
I feel Oakland will value the deep threat WR over Mike Evans, which seems to be the consensus mock pick.  You never know what Oakland will do.  You know they won't go chalk.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 5, 36, 67
NEEDS: QB, LT, DT, #1 WR, FS, LG

Matt
6. ATLANTA FALCONS-JAKE MATTHEWS-OT-TEXAS A&M
The Falcons need a someone to protect franchise QB Matt Ryan and someone to open holes for the running game as well.  Matthews is a very versatile lineman that can play LT, RT and maybe even C.  A low risk pick for a team that is ready to contend again.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 6, 37, 68
NEEDS:  LT, PR-OLB, TE, C 

Donnie
7. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-MIKE EVANS-WR-TEXAS A&M
Tampa will try to trade down, but I have no takers, so Evans it is.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 7, 38, 69
NEEDS: #2 WR, SLB, RG, QB 

Tommy
8. MINNESOTA VIKINGS-DERRICK CARR-QB-FRESNO ST
The Vikings need a franchise QB.  A surprise first QB off the board.  I think teams are taking a second look at Carr and saying, "just because his brother sucked doesn't mean he has to."
Picks in first 3 rounds: 8, 40, 72, 96
NEEDS: QB, MLB, #WLB, LG, #3 WR, DE

Matt
9. BUFFALO BILLS-ERIC EBRON-TE-UNC
The Bills can use a big, athletic TE to compliment last year's 1st round pick, QB EJ Manual.  I hate going chalk but Ebron is just too good to pass up here.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 9, 41, 73
NEEDS: RT, TE, Both S Spots, LG

Donnie
10. DETROIT LIONS-HA HA CLINTON-DIX-DS-BAMA
The Lions have major problems in the secondary.  Have you seen their depth chart?
Picks in first 3 rounds: 10, 45, 76
NEEDS:  DS, CB, LG, #3 WR 

Tommy 
11. TENNESSEE TITANS-BLAKE BORTLES-QB-UCF
The Titans are sprinting to the board.  Fuck Jake Locker.  Bortles is the man.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 11, 42
NEEDS:  CB, Speed RB, PR-OLB, QB

Matt
12. NEW YORK GIANTS-AARON DONALD-DT-PITTSBURGH
Screw what any Giants fans have to say.  I am sprinting to the podium.  The Giants can get the best player available AND fill a huge hole in the middle.  Donald can pair with DE Jason Pierre Paul to form a great pass rush duo.  Donald on the inside and JPP on the outside.  Donald also has great quickness and is good against the run
Picks in first 3 rounds: 19, 49, 81
NEEDS: DT, WLB, RT/G, RB, LDE

Tommy
13. ST. LOUIS RAMS-JUSTIN GILBERT-CB-OK ST.
Best player available.  They could use some help at corner
Picks in first 3 rounds: 2, 13, 44, 75
NEEDS: #1 WR, FS, RT, LCB

Donnie
14. CHICAGO BEARS-DARQUEZE DENNARD-CB-MICHIGAN ST.
The Bears were too busy eating Polish sausage to trade up for Donald.  They are now sluggishly walking to the podium.  They need a corner and who doesn't love double D's
Picks in first 3 rounds: 14, 51, 82
NEEDS: DS, DT-3T, CB

Matt
15. PITTSBURGH STEELERS-TAYLOR LEWAN-OT-MICHIGAN
The Steelers need to keep Big Ben healthy and their current LT is some guy named Kelvin Beachem.  Lewan is an instant starter with top 5 ability.
Picks in first round: 15, 46, 97
NEEDS: CB, Big WR, young TE, ILB, DE 

Tommy
16. DALLAS COWBOYS-JOHNNY MANZIEL-QB-TEXAS A&M 
Because Jerry Jones has an unhealthy obsession with people named Johnny.  I can't wait for the circus in big D.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 16, 47, 78
NEEDS: DT-3T, PR-DE, WLB, SS

Donnie
17. BALTIMORE RAVENS-CALVIN PRYOR-DS-LOUSIVILLE
Another safety to compliment Matt Elam.  
Picks in first 3 rounds: 17, 48, 79, 99
NEEDS:  RT, DS, ILB, DE, CB, C/G Depth, #3 WR

Matt
18. NEW YORK JETS-MARQUISE LEE-WR-USC
The Jets need a big time pass catcher to compliment 2nd year QB Geno Smith.  Lee is a smooth route runner with great hands and solid deep speed. He comes from a big program and from Los Angeles so he won't be phased by the New York media and bight lights.  Lee has a chance to become everything Jets fans hoped Santonio Holmes would be.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 18, 49, 80
NEEDS: #1 WR, CB, PR-OLB, TE, RG, FS

Donnie
19. MIAMI DOLPHINS-CJ MOSLEY-ILB-BAMA
The fan in me wants Zach Martin (Notre Dame fan as well), but the GM in me wants Mosley.  We can start Mosley inside and move Dannell Ellerbe to his natural position at WLB
Picks in first 3 rounds: 19, 50, 81
NEEDS:  RT, MLB, WLB, RG, Power RB, DB Depth 

Matt
20. ARIZONA CARDINALS-ANTHONY BARR-OLB/PR-UCLA 
The Cards may get the steal of the draft.  The Cards have plenty of vets on D that can help the raw pass rusher develop 
Picks in first 3 rounds: 20, 52, 84
NEEDS: PR-OLB, SS, 3-4 DE, ILB, backup QB

Donnie
21. CAROLINA PANTHERS (Trade up w/GB for pick #28 and #92)-ZACH MARTIN-OT-NOTRE DAME
The Panthers have a key need with the retirement of Jordan Gross. Martin is good value here and they need to keep Cam Newton upright.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 28, 60, 92
NEEDS: LT, #1 WR, CB


Donnie
22. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES-CODY LATIMER-WR-INDIANA
Not as fast as DeSean Jackson, but he's a great route runner and he's a big target that will go up and make big plays.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 22, 54, 86
NEEDS:  CB, SS, Young PR, Big WR, OL Depth 

Matt 
23. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS-BRANDIN COOKS-WR-OREGON ST. 
What a difference a year makes!  KC went from picking 1st last year to the playoffs this year.  The Chiefs still need a lot of help at WR. Cooks would be the perfect target for weak armed QB Alex Smith. Cooks has great ability to make plays in space.  He will be an instant upgrade over Donnie Avery.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 23, 87
NEEDS: WR, RG, FS, #3 CB 3-4 DE Depth

Tommy
24. CINCINNATI BENGALS-RYAN SHAZIER-ILB-OHIO ST.
The Bengals get a play maker that they feel can play middle and compliment Burfict.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 24, 55, 88
NEEDS:  CB, RDE, SLB, C/G Depth, #3 WR

Matt
25. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS-LOUIS NIX-NT/DT-NOTRE DAME
The Chargers need a starting NT to anchor their 3-4 defense.  Nix would be put in a great situation to succeed with great talent right behind him in ILB Donald Butler, All-Pro S Eric Weddle and we can't forget his former college teammate ILB Manti Te'o.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 25, 57, 89
NEEDS:  CB, NT, ILB Depth, C/G Depth, Young TE, SS

Donnie
26. CLEVELAND BROWNS-TEDDY BRIDGEWATER-QB-LOUISVILLE
The Browns put Bridgewater in a position to succeed with Josh Gordon, Sammy Watkins, Jordan Cameron and Joe Thomas.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 4, 26, 35, 71, 83
NEEDS: QB, #2 CB, #2 WR, ILB, Speed RB

Tommy
27. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS-KYLE VAN NOY-PR/OLB-AUBURN
Van Noy is my sleeper pick as a late 1st rounder.  Last year the Saints passed on pass rusher Jarvis Jones in order to take S-Kenny Vaccaro.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 27, 58, 91
NEEDS: PR-OLB, ILB, C, #2 WR 

Tommy
28. GREEN BAY PACKERS-(Trade down w/CAR)-KELVIN BENJAMIN-WR/TE-FSU

NEEDS:  Speed WR, Nickel Corner, PR Depth, NT, SS 

Donnie
31. DENVER BRONCOS-BRADLEY ROBY-CB-OHIO ST.
Good corner, just solid a player that fills a need.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 31, 63, 95
NEEDS:  CB, FS, MLB,  Speed RB, #3 WR, DL Depth 

Tommy
32. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS-CHRIS BORLAND-ILB-WISCONSIN
Seattle needs more production out of their LB core.  Seattle loves Wisconsin players.  Remember that Russell Wilson guy. Borland will be a 1st round pick, mark my words.
Picks in first 3 rounds: 32, 64
NEEDS:  WR, RT, DT, RG



SECOND ROUND

Donnie
33. HOUSTON TEXANS-JACE AMARO-TE-TEXAS TECH

NEEDS: QB, PR, ILB, RT

Matt
34. WASHINGTON REDSKINS-MORGAN MOSES-OT-VIRGINIA 
Washington MUST and I mean MUST protect RG III.  They take the chosen one MOSES over bad knees Cyrus Kouandjio

NEEDS: QB, LT, DT, #1 WR, FS, LG

Matt
37. ATLANTA FALCONS-DEMARCUS LAWRENCE-PR/OLB-BOISE 
The Falcons need a pass rusher and Lawrence provides solid value here. If they draft Lawrence and Matthews, they will add two guys that can start right away. Atlanta looks like they are moving to a 3-4 this year so Lawrence would be a great fit as an OLB.
NEEDS:  LT, PR-OLB, TE, C 

Donnie
38. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS-SCOTT CRIGHTON-DE/PR-OREGON ST. 
Tampa needs help. I will pass over Dee Ford for the 6-3/270 pound DE that is a better 4-3 fit.  
NEEDS: #2 WR, SLB, RG, QB

Matt
39. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS-TRE MASON-RB-AUBURN 
Like the Texans we will also wait till the 3rd round to draft a QB. Mason was the best RB in the nation last year. He made the best defenses in the SEC look average and torched FSU in the title game as well. He can be a great compliment to power back Toby Gerhardt
QB, RT, LG, #2 WR, Speed RB

Tommy
40. MINNESOTA VIKINGS-XAVIER SU'A FILO--OG-UCLA
That is my final pick. A big man to open running lanes for Adrian Peterson.

NEEDS:  DS, CB, LG, #3 WR 

Donnie
46. PITTSBURGH STEELERS-JORDAN MATTHEWS-WR-VANDY
A big target for Big Ben and a great red zone threat that can compliment WR Antonio Brown.  The Steelers are smart to wait on a WR rather than reaching for Kelvin Benjamin.
NEEDS: CB, Big WR, young TE, ILB, DE

Matt 
47. DALLAS COWBOYS-DOMINIQUE EASLEY-DT-FLORIDA
The Cowboys will be very lucky if Easley slips here. He would be the perfect 3T-DT in Dallas' Tampa 2 defense. Injuries have dropped him into the second round.

Donnie

The Chargers need someone to help Eric Weddle in the secondary. Joyner is small, but he is a flat out play maker. San Diego needs guys that can matchup with Denver's receiving core. Joyner is the perfect size for a slot corner.

Matt
61. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS-MARTAVIS BRYANT-WR-CLEMSON
