NFL 2014 Live Mock Draft Round 1
Selections 17-32

2014 NFL Live Mock Draft
May 8-10, 2014


17 Baltimore
C.J. Mosley
    Alabama
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
234
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix
One year after selecting Arthur Brown in Rd. 2, Ozzie Newsome opted for one of the best players on the board despite needs at other positions. Mosley is a smallish interior LB, but he excels in coverage and is highly instinctive. An Alabama product, Newsome once again showed an affinity for his alma mater. While Mosley is an outstanding player, I have to slightly disagree with taking the linebacker over HC-D or Calvin Pryor. Right tackle will continue to be the biggest need going into Day 2, but the value was not there here.
Grade: B
18 NY Jets
Calvin Pryor
    Louisville
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -17
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
207
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix
Jets were outscored by 97 points last season, the widest negative point differential for a 8-8 or better team since the 1970 merger. Although Clinton-Dix was ranked higher on our Big Board, Pryor may be a better fit for the Jets. Pryor brings some badly needed physicality to the Jets' DB group. John Idzik drafted DROY Sheldon Richardson last season, lets hope Lightning does strike twice.
Grade: B+
19 Miami
JaWuan James
    Tennessee
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     -30
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
311
Alternate Pick #1
Morgan Moses
Alternate Pick #2
Jace Amaro
Rumors came out over the last week that the Dolphins favored James to play RT over Moses and Bitonio (if the "Big Four" OTs - Robinson, Matthews, Lewan, Martin - were gone). Even with some significant defensive pieces left on the board (Dennard, Clinton-Dix), Miami decided to solidify their rebuilt OL. James is an instant Day 1 starter at RT, where he was for a school-record 49 consecutive games for Tennessee. A trade down for him would have been nice though.
Grade: B
20 New Orleans
Brandin Cooks
    Oregon State
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
189
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Jason Verrett
GM Mickey Loomis trades up and goes after Oregon State speedy wideout Brandin Cooks. Sean Payton and Drew Brees implement so many moving parts to their offensive schemes, Cooks gives them a wideout that can stretch defenses and jet down the field. Cooks' 4.3 speed gives the QB so much room to fit the football into his hands, simply by creating that initial separation. Opposing DC's will have fits trying to figure out where the attack will be coming from. That answer is actually pretty simple: from everywhere.
Grade: A+
21 Green Bay
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix
    Alabama
    FS
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
208
Alternate Pick #1
Jimmie Ward
Alternate Pick #2
Louis Nix
Surprise! Never really expected Clinton-Dix to be here for the Packers, There is no doubt the position of greatest need for the Packers was safety and really, both safety positions. Burnett did not play well last season after signing his contract extension and I believe a move to SS, where he will have less coverage responsibilities, will help. Dix does not come without some concerns. One Red Flag is the lack of success recent Alabama defensive backs have had. Dee Milliner, Mark Barron, and Dre Kirkpatrick have not exactly set the league on fire.Having said that, it's still the logical choice for the Packers here.
Grade: B
22 Cleveland
Johnny Manziel
    Texas A&M
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +17
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
207
Alternate Pick #1
Teddy Bridgewater
Alternate Pick #2
Marqise Lee
Three of four RD1 trades involve the wheelin'-n-dealin' Browns! This time, The Browns save Johnny Pigskin from an all-expense paid trip to Draft Day Two. Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan will now begin tweaking the offense for the free-wheeling improvisor, as he did in Washington with RGIII. Is Manziel the de facto 2014 Day One starter? Probably not, but he brings the kind of electricity to the field that the Browns have sorely needed.
Grade: A-
23 Kansas City
Dee Ford
    Auburn
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
252
Alternate Pick #1
Darqueze Dennard
Alternate Pick #2
Jason Verrett
Tamba Hali will turn 31 years old this upcoming season and will carry a cap number of almost 12 Million Dollars in 2015. These days, the NFL is all about passing and rushing the QB. Ford is a pure speed rusher that hits hard. Ford comes from a simple defensive scheme at Auburn. He needs a year of development and will serve as Tamba Hali's understudy in 2014. With this move, it's hard to see Tamba Hali as a Chief in 2015.
Grade: C+
24 Cincinnati
Darqueze Dennard
    Michigan State
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +14
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
191
Alternate Pick #1
Jason Verrett
Alternate Pick #2
Bradley Roby
Cincy must have had Gio Bernard run this pick to the podium as fast as it was turned in. They jump all over a player that they expected to be gone by 24. Newman is turning 36 and there are durability issues in the secondary. This pick is a great value and helps one of the NFL's top defenses reload. Dennard is a physical player who covers well, tackles well, and fights for the ball with great determination. He will compete and contribute right away.
Grade: A+



25 San Diego
Jason Verrett
    TCU
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
182
Alternate Pick #1
Louis Nix
Alternate Pick #2
Bradley Roby
Not a surprising pick, by any means, from Tom Telesco. We knew that the secondary was a sore spot and expected at least one CB and one S to be selected in this draft. Would it be all that surprising if they took another CB, maybe with better size, in the mid-rounds? Verrett, if he can stay healthy, is a potential impact player who should be able to step in from Day 1 as the Nickel CB for San Diego, covering the likes of Wes Welker in the slot.
Grade: B+
26 Philadelphia
Marcus Smith
    Louisville
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -34
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
251
Alternate Pick #1
Marqise Lee
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Lawrence
Hmmm... OK? The need is there. Philly was searching for a 3-4 OLB to play opposite Trent Cole and in the rotation with Graham and Barwin. However, Smith is a huge reach. He's rated as our 60th-best prospect, behind 3 other OLBs that were still available: Lawrence, Attaochu, and Van Noy. The former Louisville DE was rising late in the draft process though. Roseman and Kelly must like his ceiling. Selecting WR Lee, DE Tuitt, or trading down again would have been better decisions.
Grade: C-
27 Arizona
Deone Bucannon
    Washington St
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -26
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Teddy Bridgewater
Alternate Pick #2
Ra'Shede Hageman
Our 53rd-ranked prospect taken at 27. While Bucannon was considered a Day Two prospect, the SS position was a need in Arizona. He'll play next to Mathieu and form a decent Safety tandem. However the Cardinals also had other positions to improve, including OLB (Lawrence, Attaochu), DE (Tuitt), and OT (Moses). Need yes? Value/BPA? Certainly not.
Grade: C-
28 Carolina
Kelvin Benjamin
    Florida State
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -53
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
240
Alternate Pick #1
Marqise Lee
Alternate Pick #2
Morgan Moses
There was a lot of players available here. I thought we'd go CB to help cover the other big WRs in the Division. But Cam needs a big target and Benjamin is that. One thing that is for sure, if this 6'5 and 240 lb. mountain of a WR puts his mind to it he can transform our 29th-ranked passing team. We'll have to see how the rest of the draft plays out to fully grade this pick, but based on the reaction on Twitter, fans do not like the pick. But they didn't like the Steve Smith pick 11 years ago, either.
Grade: Incomplete
29 New England
Dominique Easley
    Florida
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     -18
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
288
Alternate Pick #1
Kony Ealy
Alternate Pick #2
Jace Amaro
We are happy to see New England address the Defensive Line, but would have preferred Louis Nix III or Stephon Tuitt here. Easley's talent is certainly not a question, but after 2 torn ACLs, his long term health is. The last time the Patriots spent a high pick on an injury-prone player was Ras-I Dowling in 2011, who is already out of the league. Easley will be able to penetrate from multiple spots on the line, if he can stay on the field.
Grade: B-
30 San Francisco
Jimmie Ward
    Northern Illinois
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -12
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
193
Alternate Pick #1
Bradley Roby
Alternate Pick #2
Louis Nix
Jimmie Ward is an interesting choice for the 49ers. At the end of 1st Round values tend to go out the window, but Ward was widely considered to be a 2nd Round pick. Schematically, it's assumed that Ward will line up at SS as Eric Reid looks to have FS locked up, but they're fairly interchangeable in this system. We knew they had to beef up the secondary, but I would have thought Bradley Roby would have been the pick here. Time will tell if the slight reach works out for them. Here's hoping it does!
Grade: B-
31 Denver
Bradley Roby
    Ohio State
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
194
Alternate Pick #1
Xavier Su'a-Filo
Alternate Pick #2
David Yankey
This fan/analyst loves this pick. Value meets need and patience is rewarded. There are clearly concerns with the double-move and some bad tape, but this is an extremely-talented athlete with attitude. Talib+Ward+Roby will help a ton as Harris comes back. Let's just not have any breakdowns in coverage late in championship games. Bronco fans are still scarred from that.
Grade: B
32 Minnesota
Teddy Bridgewater
    Louisville
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +15
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
214
Alternate Pick #1
Derek Carr
Alternate Pick #2
Jimmy Garoppolo
"Tricky" Rick is at it again as he once again proves that he's not afraid to take chances in the draft. It only cost a 4th Round Pick to move up 8 spots to lock down the man who was widely speculated as the apple of their eye. Bridgewater has the best film of any QB prospect, an advanced understanding of how to play his position, and is arguably a more-anticipated prospect than the last 1st Round QB for Minnesota, Christian Ponder. This was a great job by Mr. Spielman, manipulating the draft to suit his needs.
Grade: A
