2014 NFL Mock Draft Update: Complete 2nd Round


The latest 2014 NFL mock draft continues into the second round as the trades keep flying and teams make some bold moves.

#33 – Houston Texans – Lamarcus Joyner – S – Florida State

Inconsistency at safety must be addressed for Houston.  Lamarcus Joyner lacks size but is a playmaker with a cool head on his shoulders.

#34 – Washington Redskins – Cyril Richardson – G – Baylor

Protecting RGIII must take priority for the Washington Redskins.  Cyril Richardson is a road grader in the run game and is too big and athletic to beat in pass protection.

#35 – St. Louis Rams (from HOU) – Timmy Jernigan – DT – Florida State

He dominated the BCS title game for stretches and the Rams could use more help defending the run.  Timmy Jernigan does that better than anybody.  So they move up to get him.

#36 – Oakland Raiders – Brett Smith – QB – Wyoming

Reggie McKenzie doesn’t fear surprise picks for the Oakland Raiders.  Brett Smith is a late riser but he has a good arm, mobility, a nice frame and works his progressions well.

#37 – Atlanta Falcons – David Yankey – G – Stanford

Protecting Matt Ryan and opening up running lanes are priorities for Atlanta.  David Yankey is versatile, powerful, and a leader who can set the tone from the guard spot.

#38 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Antonio Richardson – OT – Tennessee

Having acquired their pass rusher, Lovie Smith tries to get Mike Glennon more protection.  Antonio Richardson is a big, burly tackle who can lock down rushers and get downhill to open lanes in the running game.

#39 – Jacksonville Jaguars – Trevor Reilly – DE – Utah

Gus Bradley needs more from the Jacksonville Jaguars pass rush.  Trevor Reilly has really come on for Utah, displaying top notch athleticism and a better pass rush instinct.

#40 – New York Giants (from STL) – Zack Martin – G – Notre Dame

In dire need of help up front, the Giants jump up a few spots to secure Notre Dame lineman Zack Martin.  Smart, strong and technically sound he is ready to start immediately.

#41 – Buffalo Bills – DeVante Parker – WR – Louisville

DeVante Parker is the ideal Buffalo Bills receiver.  Not only is he big at 6’3″ but he has speed to go with it.  E.J. Manuel will covet that in 2014.

#42 – Tennessee Titans – David Fales – QB – San Jose State

Jake Locker is in doubt for his job and the Tennessee Titans need to bring in competition.  David Fales has some deficiencies but he is accurate, intelligent, mobile and can run a pro offense at its peak.

#43 – St. Louis Rams (from NYG) – Jason Verrett – CB – TCU

Corteland Finnegan is getting older, so Jeff Fisher gives St. Louis some depth at corner.  Jason Verett is undersized but tough, athletic and fast.  He has a nose for the football too.

#44 – St. Louis Rams – Tre Mason – RB – Auburn

No running back had a bigger ending stretch to the season than Tre Mason.  He runs with a purpose, has good vision and can be a receiver as well.  St. Louis got something from Zac Stacy, but Mason brings more depth and potential.

#45 – Detroit Lions – Bradley Roby – CB – Ohio State

Inconsistency at cornerback continues to haunt the Detroit Lions.  Bradley Roby is still not polished enough but his athleticism and potential in coverage is unquestioned.

#46 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Moses Morgan – OT – Virginia

The Virginia senior got better and better as the season went on.  He has the frame and athleticism of a top tackle and can grow into much more.  His issue is weight control.

#47 – Dallas Cowboys – Ra’Shede Hageman – DT – Minnesota

The defensive overhaul continues.  With a safety in place, Dallas gets lucky by nabbing the uber-athletic Ra’Shede Hageman.  His upside is off the charts and could do amazing things under Rod Marinelli.

#48 – Baltimore Ravens – Kyle Van Noy – OLB – BYU

Ozzie Newsome sticks to his board, so he will see Kyle Van Noy is still available.  Baltimore needs more youth at outside linebacker.  Van Noy is an instinctive playmaker.

#49 – New York Jets – La’el Collins – OT – LSU

La’el Collins has played both guard and tackle for LSU.  The New York Jets might need help at both positions in 2014 so he is a heady pickup for the front office to protect Geno Smith.

#50 – Miami Dolphins – Ka’Deem Carey – RB – Arizona

Offensive line is still a need but so is finding a workhorse running back to ease pressure on Ryan Tannehill.  Ka’Deem Carey doesn’t get attention, but few do the job better than him.

#51 – Chicago Bears – Deone Bucannon – SS – Washington State

Safety became a sore spot for Chicago as the season went on.  Major Wright is a free agent.  So they take Deone Bucannon, a 6’1″ safety from WashingtonState with a reputation for dealing fierce hits and taking the ball away.

#52 – Arizona Cardinals – Michael Sam – OLB – Missouri

Pass rush from the outside linebacker spot took the Arizona Cardinals defense to another level.  Still, John Abraham is 35.  They need youth.  Michael Sam has the frame and the proven production to fit right in at that spot.

#53 – Green Bay Packers – Marcus Roberson – CB – Florida

Sam Shields is a free agent and the Packers could use more reliable coverage from their corners.  Marcus Roberson is not a run defender but he plays very good man-to-man on receivers.

#54 – San Diego Chargers – Loucheiz Purifoy – CB – Florida

Though his coverage ability is not at the same level as his Florida teammate, Loucheiz Purifoy is the better athlete with a higher ceiling.  That is what the Chargers bank on.

#55 – Philadelphia Eagles – Morgan Breslin – OLB – USC

An injury dropped him off the map but at the start of the college season Morgan Breslin was viewed as one of the best pass rushing outside linebackers in the country.

#56 – Cincinnati Bengals – E.J. Gaines – CB – Missouri

A slight size deficiency drops him into the second round but E.J. Gaines has first round ability.  He can play solid coverage, tackle and has the instincts to attack the ball.

#57 – Indianapolis Colts – Xavier Su’a-Filo – G – UCLA

More and more it’s easy to see the Indianapolis Colts thrive when Andrew Luck is protected.  Xavier Su’a-Filo has the quickness, power and technique to further that aim.

#58 – New Orleans Saints – Aaron Colvin – CB – Oklahoma

The loss of Keenan Lewis really showed how thin New Orleans is at corner.  Aaron Colvin can alleviate a lot of that pressure with his good size and athleticism.

#59 – San Francisco 49ers (from KC) – Travis Swanson – C – Arkansas

Jonathan Goodwin is still an anchor in the middle for the 49ers but he’s getting up there in age.  Travis Swanson gives them an excellent line of succession to maintain their stout offensive line.

#60 – San Francisco 49ers – Dominique Easley – DT – Florida

A torn ACL ended his season but before that there wasn’t a more dominant defensive lineman than Dominique Easley.  San Francisco won’t fear the injury concerns.

#61 – Carolina Panthers – Jordan Matthews – WR – Vanderbilt

Why not double up?  The Carolina Panthers did it last time.  Jordan Matthews can bring them another receiver, one with a big frame, great hands and keen understanding of how to run routes and get open.

#62 – New England Patriots – C.J. Fiedorowicz – TE – Iowa

His production is highly misleading.  Scouts believe C.J. Fiedorowicz has the size-to-speed ratio to give defenses headaches.  On top of that he is a highly effective blocker.

#63 – Denver Broncos – Victor Hampton – CB – South Carolina

Champ Bailey is aging fast and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is a free agent.  The Denver Broncos need more help at corner.  Victor Hampton, while inconsistent, is athletic and tough.

#64 – Seattle Seahawks – Jack Mewhort – OT – Ohio State

Russell Wilson hasn’t gotten the best protection in 2013 and the Seattle Seahawks could really use more help at the tackle spots.  Jack Mewhort is big, versatile, intelligent and getting better.

  • Kyle Smith

    Why is Minnesota left off the list…

    • Jimmy DeMarco

      Because in his previous article about trades in the first round… He has Minnesota moving into the 2 spot of the 1st round and trading their 1st & 2nd to the Rams.

      • Kyle Smith

        Oh right on, thanks Jimmy.

        I’m going to read said article now.

        I’m hoping and assuming his projection had my Vikes taking a top projected QB.

        • Jimmy DeMarco

          You’re welcome kyle.
          Yeah, he has them taking Carr.

          • Kyle Smith

            Nice!

            I would prefer Bridgewater but I don’t know how ballsy Rick Speilman is to give up tons of picks for the #1 overall pick.

            In a dream world I would have them trading up for #1 and grabbing Teddy B. We were super aggressive last year and even though the defense had holes, we have some quality players in last years draft now on our team.

            Who’s your team?

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            I think Houston will trade down a few spots and take Manziel. And that’s what Eric has Houston doing with Cleveland.

            Minnesota getting Carr is a good pick for them. I actually like Bortles too.
            I’m not too sure what the numerical value is for moving up to number one exactly, but it would cost Minnesota a lot.

            I’m a Cowboys fan. Looking for a LOT of defensive help lol.

          • Erik Lambert

            As a Bears fan I’m right there with you.

          • KevVc1

            That makes no sense whatsoever. The majority of mock drafts Ive seen have the Vikings taking Carr at number 8 anyway. There is no way we would move up to number 2 to get the guy that most mocks have as the 4th best QB.

          • Erik Lambert

            That could change if he puts up good pro days and a good combine. Also, don’t discount other teams that might leapfrog Minnesota to get him like Tennessee. There is no way Carr makes it to the 8th pick.

          • Kyle Smith

            I was talking about Bridgewater. If you’re talking about him as well, he is not the 4th best QB. He is the #1 QB and most NFL ready.

            If you’re talking about someone else then by all means, I could hear you out, I love these debates and hearing different opinions!

            I was just saying that after such an aggressive draft last year, I wish Speilman would jump up and be the most aggressive he’s ever been and try to take Bridgewater. My vikings are in dire need of a franchise QB. It’s been far too long since we’ve had great productivity and consistency at that position.

            Who’s your team KevC?

          • KevVc1

            @Kyle I was referring to the idea the Vikes would move up to get Carr when it looks like, at least right now, we could sit tight, not give up anything, and still get him. I could at least see the argument of moving up to get Bridgewater but im not sure even he would be worth it. If you look at what Washington did a few years ago with RGIII, they more than likely got their franchise quarterback (although after this year the jury may still be out somewhat) but the rest of the team has been decimated and they are still losing draft picks. I also dont know that Spielman would be willing to be aggressive at the top of the draft for a quarterback. He has been aggressive at the end of the round for more surefire position players but if he gives up a ton for a quarterback that doesnt work out, he knows he would be sent packing….Im a dire hard Vikings fan living in Denver….its been a rough year….

          • Kyle Smith

            Ahh!! I feel your pain! I’m at Langley Virginia. I want our team to reestablish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the NFC North.

            Bortles or Carr is fine by me as a vikes fan, they both show lots of promise, good arm strength & size etc. I’m not a manziel bandwagoneer, even though I do believe he is a great player. His size concerns me and I would hate to see RG3 happen in minnesota.

          • Gary Stewart

            hou, jax, cle, oak, tb? min… what the writer has done is math here guys there are 5-6 teams that need a qb while i like you would want teddy its likely that spielman who like the rams have a track record of moving around and at #8 could see all 4 qbs gone b4 they get to select moving to #2 to draft carr is suspect to me as well but moving to #2 guarantees that other that teddy they will have the pick of the litter. and if they have decided to move on from jared they may take clowney at least that represents another reason to move up to #2 for minn. cause clowney wont be there at #8 either.

  • Jimmy DeMarco

    Seeing as you have Dallas taking Dix with ourffirst pick in your previous article, which I think will be the pick. But, with you having guys like Ealy, Tuitt and Nix going in the 1st round and Jernigan going early in the 2nd, I can’t see Hageman falling that far in the 2nd round to Dallas.

    Don’t get me wrong, if that’s the case, Dallas is in business. I just can’t see Hageman falling that far.

    • Erik Lambert

      Probably not but based on my projections that just is how the board plays out. Hageman could very well go earlier but who knows. A bad pro day and combine could drop him.

      • Jimmy DeMarco

        That’s true.
        I would think someone like Mccullers or Sutton may be there with our second pick.

        • Erik Lambert

          McCullers has weight issues and Sutton is slightly undersized with short arms. If I had to choose between those two I’d take Sutton. Draws a lot of comparisons to Geno Atkins.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            Not a bad comparison lol.
            I know Dallas doesn’t draft DL in the 1st Rd, historically. And I know how good Dix is.
            I’m just holding out hope Jerry takes a big time DL with the first pick.

            With safeties like Reynolds, Pryor, Bailey, Buccannon, Loston and Zimmerman in the draft, I would prefer DL in the 1st then one of those in the 2nd. Or even go back to back DL then take our safety.

            Obviously it won’t happen. Jerry just refuses to take DL in the 1st Rd. And he also likes to trade down and take the players from less popular schools too. He’s a genius isn’t he? Lol.

            Do I hear another TE coming? Lol

          • Erik Lambert

            I wouldn’t put it past him. The guy’s ego is bigger than that monstrosity of a stadium he built. He simply thinks he can run the entire show which historically has never worked out. The way I look at it is you have Rod Marinelli in town, the best defensive line coach in the business. He turned Henry Melton, a running back in college, into a Pro Bowl defensive tackle. I think the Cowboys can afford to wait until Day 2 to get their D-line help, which is why I had them take Dix. Still, Jerry does have a love affair with offense and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he went that direction. Not that I’m complaining. It’s one more defensive option the Bears might have a shot at.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            Lol. It would definitely help Chicago.
            I can actually see Jerry taking an OL again in the first round and then a WR with our 2nd pick. Or even trading out of the 2nd round for another 3rd and a 6th.

            He’s so clueless when it comes to talent evaluation, he’s not even a legend in his own mind. Lol

          • Erik Lambert

            Winning three Super Bowls thanks to Jimmy Johnson can do that.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            You got that right.
            It would be nice to see him get just 1 draft right. Last year wasn’t horrible in totality. But I would like to see him at least get 5 of the 7 right.
            Probably asking 3 too many. But, Cowboy fans can dream lol

          • Erik Lambert

            His greatest defensive pick, DeMarcus Ware, was an accident because Matt Millen was too stupid to take him in Detroit. If you want to build that Tampa 2 defense then you should hire Jerry Angelo. That’s the only thing he got right here in Chicago. In truth Jones has an eye for wide receivers, that I will say. Everything else he seems to get by with free agents. However, I think his greatest failure is not finding a quality head coach after Johnson.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            I agree with everything you said.
            Personally, I would rebuild. Ware, Hatcher, Sims, Durant, Austin, Randle, Hanna, Jones, Wynn, Carte, all fgone. And I would even cut heath, who’s garbage. I wouldn’t resign Waters, I’d restructure Carr’s and Romo’s contracts, trade Murray and Witten.

            Look to sign at least one FA on defense, Hardy or Johnson and then just build a defense through the next 2 drafts.

            And I’ve even seen articles about signing Alexander from San Diego, which I’ve been saying since the season ended. Unless Jerry is looking to take one of those big 6 foot kids in the draft. I just don’t see Williams as a true # 2 receiver.

            It will never happen, just what I would do.

          • Erik Lambert

            It won’t happen. That’s too drastic. Kiffin is a good defensive coach despite what happened this season though I confess I think he’s getting too old for the job. Hatcher is gone and I think Austin will be too. Trading Murray is interesting and I’ve written articles about dealing Witten but Jones won’t do that either. Their best hope is to free up some cap space, maybe improve their depth with some cheap free agents and then go after some difference-makers in the draft. Don’t forget Eric Decker too. He’s got good size (6’3″) and would be a great compliment to Dez as he’s been to Demaryius in Denver.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            I do like Decker actually. All the negative press he’s gotten about not having elite speed & he’s only good because of Peyton is BS. He’s not a # 1, everyone knows that. But he’s got great hands and is an exceptional route runner. & his first step ability off the snap to beat his man is top notch.

            Kiffin isn’t a bad DC, I agree. Injuries played a huge part in their atrocious defense this year. & switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3, Tampa 2 isn’t easy.
            Look at how quickly Kansas City fell when injuries started piling up on their defense.

            I would like to get a younger DC, even if we’re sticking with the Tampa 2.

          • Erik Lambert

            Marinelli ran it very well in Chicago, which might be a perfect line of succession. No defense can survive so many injuries for long against today’s offenses. I believe Decker is the ideal #2. He knows how to get open and can make defenses pay for doubling the #1.

          • Jimmy DeMarco

            My dad is a huge Bears fan, he’s 73.
            What’s your thoughts on the Cutler signing?

          • Erik Lambert

            Had to happen. He gives them the best chance to win now. Another year under Trestman should see marked improvement and Emery will do everything possible to reload that defense. It was the right call, and the Bears protected themselves by making it so they can cut him loose in three years if they wish.

          • Gary Stewart

            jerry seems to get the right guys like frederick he just winds up reaching way too far a 3rd round prospect at #20 is a huge reach even though fredericks worked out think if he only reached to round 2 to get frederick and actually picked well with the 20th overall pick but thats jerry being jerry

          • Erik Lambert

            I was flummoxed when he stated he thought the defense was in good shape for the draft, which told me he wasn’t seeing what everybody else was.

          • Gary Stewart

            erik where can i read your projections for the first round including the trades and who you have the rams picking at #8 if you had us trading #2 for #8 and a 2nd rounder only its not enough was there a future pick in your deal as well??

          • Gary Stewart

            erik i found it thanks see my evaluation of your 2 round mock for the rams somewhere above. good job !!GO RAMS!!

    • Gary Stewart

      after 10 picks there will be 10 gone and so on the point is if hageman is gone someone else will still be on the board the scary thing if i were a cowboy fan (which i am not) is knowing that jerry jones is calling the shots he got a great center in fredericks last year and he worked out well but he was projected as a 3rd rounder and they took him in the first @ 20. so they probably could have got another solid player for their defense last year at 20 and still “reached” for fredericks in the 2nd round thats where i see the problem

    • Albert Smith

      I completely agree with you!

  • Dixie Dawg

    No pick for the Browns in Round 2?? C’mon, I know the refs SCREW US and the NFL Media forgets us constantly but where has your data gone to Mars??? Browns take the best CB in round 2.

    • Jimmy DeMarco

      Read his previous article about trades in the first round.
      He has the Browns trading up to the first pick & trading their 1st pick and 2nd round pick.

      • Erik Lambert

        Don’t forget they have two first round picks. It would take that, a second rounder and maybe even their 2015 first rounder to get that pick depending on the demands Houston gets. If anybody has the ammo to move up to #1, it’s Cleveland.

        • Jimmy DeMarco

          That’s true. Cleveland does have what it takes to get it done.

    • Erik Lambert

      Jake Matthews at #8 for the offensive line. Mike Evans, the big 6’5″ receiver at #13.

  • Gary Stewart

    ok erik i went back to get the whole picture and other than not knowing if you had us trading any later round picks away in your mock i have in your mock the rams parlaying the 2nd 13th and 42nd pick for the #1 o line prospect in the draft a top 3 wr in the draft and a serious red and probable #1 type a top 3 dt to go alongside brockers a top 3-5 cb in this draft and a serious smash mouth rb to compliment zac

    evans wr 13th

    thats 5 top 50s filling almost every hole with 5 rounds to go and…. if we cut dahl and sign tj mack in free agency our safety problem is covered and id be in heaven!!!!

    t cb

    • Erik Lambert

      Such is the effect of moving picks around. It’s a highly productive draft though I still feel there is a chance they might take a quarterback. I agree T.J. Ward would be an ideal pickup for you though I believe my Bears might try to outmaneuver you for him given our own safety problems. If I were SF and SEA, I’d be very nervous if things went this way for you.

    • Zachery Klausman

      This draft would be amazing aside from the Evans pick at 13. There better players available and hopefully we could trade that pick off for a 1st rounder next year.

      • Erik Lambert

        Don’t forget Evans is only a sophomore. His inconsistency towards the end of the season was more due to inexperience than lacking talent. Imagine how good he would look on the field playing across from Tavon Austin. Besides, the depth of the defensive class in 2014 would mean you can solve a ton of your problems there later on.
