2014 NFL Mock Draft Update: Trade Barrage


Trading has become a regular part of drafts.  With that in mind this 2014 NFL mock draft will offer some speculation on how they could impact the action.

#1 – Atlanta Falcons (f/HOU) – Jadeveon Clowney – DE – South Carolina

Trade:  6th, 37th (2nd), 1st in ’15 picks to Texans for 1st pick

It’s the one trade that makes the most sense.  The Atlanta Falcons are one or two players away from getting back to contending.  Finding a young pass rusher to build around for the next ten years like Jadeveon Clowney is exactly what they need.  He should thrive on that fast track Georgia Dome turf.

#2 – Detroit Lions (f/STL) – Sammy Watkins – WR – Clemson

Trade:  10th, 1st in ’15 and DT Nick Fairley to Rams for 2nd pick

This is the most interesting trade considered in awhile.  Detroit remains somewhat uncertain regarding Nick Fairley, leading to their not using the option to retain him through 2015.  So instead of forking over a load of draft picks, they use him in a package with the St. Louis Rams to go up and get coveted receiver Sammy Watkins.

#3 – Jacksonville Jaguars – Blake Bortles – QB – UCF

It’s still about the future for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the quarterback in this 2014 NFL mock draft with the brightest future is Blake Bortles.  At 6’5″ he has the body for the pros, a good arm, mobility and a sharp mind that helps when the pressure ratchets up a notch.

#4 – Cleveland Browns – Jake Matthews – OT – Texas A&M

When in doubt, go with the safe pick.  The Cleveland Browns likely wanted Sammy Watkins but that is no longer possible.  In that case add some badly needed protection for their quarterbacks is a must.  Jake Matthews is the most complete tackle in this class with the strength and athleticism to play on the right or left sides.

#5 – Oakland Raiders – Khalil Mack – OLB – Buffalo

Plenty of veteran talent and experience was added to the Oakland Raiders defense in free agency but they still need a young difference-maker to bring it all together.  Khalil Mack is another complete football player.  He rushes the passer, tackles in the run game and makes plays in coverage.  A very violent and dynamic talent.

#6 – Houston Texans (f/ATL) – Johnny Manziel – QB – Texas A&M

With their extra picks in hand the Houston Texans put their future in the hands of the polarizing Johnny Manziel.  He certainly doesn’t lack the confidence to carry a franchise.  His rare playmaking skill, mobility and instinct should serve him well provided Bill O’Brien can file down the rough edges to his game.

#7 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Mike Evans – WR – Texas A&M

Mike Williams is gone via trade.  Vincent Jackson is 31-years old.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are flirting with disaster at wide receiver.  That is why they have to take Mike Evans if he’s there at #7.  The Texas A&M product has all the size (6’5″) in the world coupled with good hands and an explosive lower body.

#8 – Minnesota Vikings – C.J. Mosley – LB – Alabama

It’s really hard to argue that the Minnesota Vikings are probably weakest at the linebacker position.  They have nobody of note, especially in the middle.  Help is also needed on the outside.  C.J. Mosley can solve both problems.  The athletic, tough, instinctive leader of the Alabama defense can play any position and would be most welcome on that roster.

#9 – Buffalo Bills – Greg Robinson – OT – Auburn

What a coup for the Buffalo Bills.  In sore need of help to shore up their offensive front, they end up snagging arguably the most talent tackle on the board.  Greg Robinson is a dominant run blocker with the frame, athleticism and power to shift over to the right side should that be the desire.  E.J. Manuel will be that much better off.

#10 – St. Louis Rams (f/WSH) – Taylor Lewan – OT – Michigan

Getting Nick Fairley in that deal will draw some varying opinions but for the Rams they will eye his steadily increasing sack production and see a physically gifted tackle who can potentially turn their defensive front from really good into dominant.  On top of that they still manage to get one of the top blockers in Taylor Lewan to protect Sam Bradford.

#11 – Tennessee Titans – Anthony Barr – OLB – UCLA

Pass rush was a problem for the Tennessee Titans even before Ken Whisenhunt arrived.  Now his new 3-4 defense under Ray Horton is building and is in need of someone to go get the quarterback.  Anthony Barr is tailor-made for that system.  His athletic prowess and pass rush potential make him a perfect outside linebacker to build around.

#12 – New York Giants – Aaron Donald – DT – Pitt

Linval Joseph was a tough loss for the New York Giants, as was Justin Tuck.  They need more disruption up front if their defense is going to function properly.  Aaron Donald is the best interior pass rusher in this draft.  He gets off the line so fast and uses natural leverage and quickness to shoot gaps and blow up plays in the backfield.

#13 – St. Louis Rams – Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – FS – Alabama

If Jeff Fisher is ever going to maximize the effect of his defensive front he needs to ensure his secondary has the playmakers in place to take advantage.  Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is a classic centerfielder at free safety with great speed and instincts to track the football in coverage.

#14 – San Francisco 49ers (f/CHI) – Justin Gilbert – CB – Oklahoma State

Trade:  30th, 56th (2nd), 94th (3rd) and 129th (4th) to Bears for 14th pick

The San Francisco 49ers are primed and ready to go get players they want in this 2014 NFL mock draft.  Case and point, they strike a deal with Chicago to snare arguably the best cover corner in the class.  Justin Gilbert has the speed, length and athleticism to cover any receiver and also adds return ability on special teams.

#15 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Darqueze Dennard – CB – Michigan State

It’s never really hard to recognize “Pittsburgh Steelers” during a draft.  Jarvis Jones was that guy in 2013.  Darqueze Dennard fits the mold this time.  The MichiganState corner thrives playing suffocating press coverage and also plays tough against the run  He will make a great addition to that aging secondary.

#16 – Miami Dolphins (f/DAL) – Zack Martin – OT – Notre Dame

Trade:  19th and 81st (3rd) to Cowboys for 16th, 229th (7th) and 238th (7th) picks

Zack Martin is the last true Day One starter on the board at tackle.  The Miami Dolphins badly need him for their rebuilding offensive line.  With Baltimore a threat to take him, the Fins strike a deal with Dallas to go up and get him.  It might seem like a heavy price, but in truth Martin is worth it.

#17 – Philadelphia Eagles (f/BAL) – Calvin Pryor – SS – Louisville

Trade:  22nd and 86th (3rd) picks to Ravens for 17th pick

Malcom Jenkins was a nice addition but the safety spot is far from fixed for the Philadelphia Eagles.  Calvin Pryor is exactly what they need.  His physical presence, ability to tackle as well as blitz is an ideal fit for their defense.  The upside in coverage is what makes him worth moving up for.

#18 – New York Jets – Eric Ebron – TE – North Carolina

They get their guy and didn’t even have to move up to do it.  The New York Jets sorely lack a talent at tight end.  Eric Ebron, athletically is one of the best to come around in a long time.  Vernon Davis comparisons might be reaching this early but there is no question he can become a great target for Geno Smith or Michael Vick.

#19 – Dallas Cowboys (f/MIA) – Kony Ealy – DE – Missouri

Defensive end is in serious danger for the Dallas Cowboys.  DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer are gone.  Henry Melton should help on the inside but as of now the edges are razor thin.  Kony Ealy alleviates a ton of that pressure.  He has the size and strength to play the run and plenty of explosion to find ways to the quarterback.

#20 – Arizona Cardinals – Dee Ford – DE – Auburn

John Abraham had a great resurgence for the Arizona Cardinals but at 35-years old he’s on his last legs.  Replacing his outside pass rush is critical for the Cardinals defense.  Dee Ford out of Auburn has the bend, speed and skill to become that player.  He wrecked havoc late last season and can easily make the switch to outside linebacker.

#21 – Green Bay Packers – Stephon Tuitt – DE – Notre Dame

Getting more athletic and dynamic up front was a major key for the Green Bay Packers.  Julius Peppers was a solid short-term option but they need more help.  Stephon Tuitt has the size, strength and speed to play anywhere from defensive end to nose tackle.  He creates heat on the quarterbacks and has the long arms to shed blockers.

#22 – Baltimore Ravens (f/PHI) – Kelvin Benjamin – WR – Florida State

Joe Flacco gets his much needed big target to compliment Torrey Smith.  Kelvin Benjamin has that rare 6’5″ frame coupled with good speed to force defenses into adjusting.  He can go up and get the football or shield off defenders on curl routes.  His knack for the big play is something the Baltimore Ravens need.

#23 – Kansas City Chiefs – Odell Beckham Jr. – WR – LSU

A dose of speed is really a need for the Kansas City Chiefs on offense, especially after losing Dexter McCluster.  Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the open field threat who can take it the distance once the ball is in his hands.  He also should lend some help on special teams with his return ability.

#24 – Cincinnati Bengals – Derek Carr – QB – Fresno State

Andy Dalton officially gets put on notice when the Cincinnati Bengals pull another first round stunner.  Derek Carr is their way of saying it’s now or never because the FresnoState product has what Dalton doesn’t.  He has the big arm to make any throw and the athleticism to make plays outside the pocket.

#25 – San Diego Chargers – Kyle Fuller – CB – Virginia Tech

This is a major victory for the San Diego Chargers.  In need of serious help at corner they end up getting the second or third best on the board.  Kyle Fuller has good size, plenty of speed and a tough-minded approach that serves him well in press coverage.  His added willingness to play the run only makes him more valuable.

#26 – Cleveland Browns (f/IND) – Teddy Bridgewater – QB – Louisville

Carr going off the board is a disappointment for Cleveland who seemed to really like him.  Still, they shouldn’t feel bad about getting Teddy Bridgewater instead.  The Louisville star has plenty of physical potential and from a mechanical and intelligence standpoint is ready to start right away if the Browns wish it.

#27 – New Orleans Saints – Bradley Roby – CB – Ohio State

If not for his struggles early in 2013 then OhioState cornerback Bradley Roby would be much higher in this 2014 NFL mock draft.  Not that the New Orleans Saints are complaining.  In need of more help on the back end, they get a chance to pair the hyper-athletic and speedy Roby with Keenan Lewis.

#28 – Chicago Bears (f/CAR) – Ra’Shede Hageman – DT – Minnesota

Trade:  30th and 156th (5th) picks to Panthers for 28th pick

Chicago moves back after both Clinton-Dix and Donald came off the board and the 49ers offered a sweet deal for Gilbert.  However, they felt compelled to leap frog New England in order to get Ra’Shede Hageman, a physical freak of nature with enormous upside who is a perfect fit for the new defense under construction by GM Phil Emery.

#29 – New England Patriots – Austin Seferian-Jenkins – TE – Washington

Rob Gronkowski doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to return, leaving the New England Patriots with a glaring hole at the tight end position.  This can’t continue if they wish to win that elusive fourth Super Bowl.  Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a great physical talent with the size and speed to make plays in coverage but also has promises as a blocker.

#30 – Carolina Panthers (f/CHI) – Brandin Cooks – WR – Oregon State

They needed a replacement for Steve Smith and the Carolina Panthers get one.  Brandin Cooks may be short of stature but his speed and superb hands make him a nightmare to coral in the open field.  He should become a great target for Cam Newton and able to line up almost anywhere on the field.

#31 – Denver Broncos – Ryan Shazier – OLB – Ohio State

The defense was and remains the primary focus for the Denver Broncos heading into the draft.  They really could use more help at linebacker and nabbing Ryan Shazier here is a great pickup.  His speed and tackling prowess will be most welcome on a largely veteran-laden unit.

#32 – Seattle Seahawks – Marqise Lee – WR – USC

Yes, Sidney Rice is back and Percy Harvin should enter the season healthy but can the Seattle Seahawks really bank on that?  Both haven’t played full seasons in years.  Coupled with the loss of Golden Tate and this problem is anything but solved.  Landing a talent like Marqise Lee this late would chance that.

  • octavia a henry

    We need a big physical speedy wide receiver. Thank you

    • Erik Lambert

      They can find that in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    • Panther Hines

      I think every team needs what you just described

  • PSUGuy24

    Are you kidding? Why in the world would the Eagles trade their 3rd round pick to move up 5 spots in one of the deepest mid-round drafts in years?

    • Erik Lambert

      Because Pryor is one of few top flight safeties in this draft and he brings things to the table the Eagles simply don’t have.

  • thanos kaplanis

    lewan at 10 when he’s gonna go in the 2nd

    • Erik Lambert

      No, thanos, he’s not.

      • thanos kaplanis

        well I don’t think the rams will pass on ha’ha

        • Erik Lambert

          They didn’t. Look at #13.

          • thanos kaplanis

            sorry didn’t see that

          • Erik Lambert

            No problem. Easy to miss with their picks so close together.

  • Old Frog

    I hope not! Dallas trades 16 to Miami who take Zack Martin? I want Zack Martin. I will be screaming (not in a good way) if it goes down like that. The only trade down I’m happy with is if Donald, Martin, and Barr are already off the board.

    • Erik Lambert

      You’re foolish if you think the Cowboys won’t go defensive line. They are thin at tackle and practically non-existent at end. Martin is a good talent but he is not what Dallas needs. Their primary concern is at guard, a problem that can be solved in the 2nd or 3rd.

      • Old Frog

        Foolish?! Opinions vary.

      • Scott.

        Just saw your first round trade (my fault) agree with getting ealy and picking up additional pick.

        • Erik Lambert

          No problem. Thought it was the right move.

  • BearsFan_39

    Makes sense but I feel Chicago would be shooting themselves in the foot not taking Gilbert if he fall to them.

    • Erik Lambert

      Don’t. Gilbert is an outstanding athletic talent but this corner class is very deep at the position and Gilbert isn’t a shutdown corner.

  • Panther Hines

    I really like Cooks but if Lee is still on the board I think the Panthers would rather go that route. Love the trade back for the Panthers instead of a classic Marty Hurney trade up…that busts…and sets the franchise back for years….and forces them to draft Jimmy friggin Clausen….

    • Erik Lambert

      Yeah, that was a head-scratcher. I think teams are down on Lee because of his injury concerns and lagging speed at the combine. Cooks led the NCAA in receiving and looks fast in person and on tape. The trade back made sense because New England likely would’ve taken Hageman and the Bears need somebody like him. By that same token the Patriots aren’t a threat to taking Cooks so the Panthers wouldn’t see much harm in a deal. They get a Smith replacement, an extra pick and can move on to the next round.

  • dolphinmofo

    I don’t see the dolphins trading up for a right tackle in the first round. Especially one that’s not one of the top three. In this situation we should trade down or go bpa.

    • Erik Lambert

      Martin is not just a right tackle, DM. He’s a lineman. His strength and technique are so good that he can play any position up front. Need him at right tackle? Fine. Right guard? Okay. He really can play anywhere and those kinds of players are rare.

      • dolphinmofo

        At the senior bowl he struggled against the better d tackles so right now he’s not nfl ready for guard. That makes him right now only a rt. Plus the way you worked your draft if Dallas goes d line then either ebron Pryor or martin falls to us at 19. Eliminating the need to trade.

        • Erik Lambert

          Ebron and Pryor won’t keep Tannehill off his back. They are luxury picks where as Martin has the talent to fill a huge need for them. Trading a third in exchange for him and a couple of 7th rounders is worth it. The inexperience of playing guard is a minor issue.

          • dolphinmofo

            No but they do fill a need. Hickey is going bpa in the first because their is such a drop off in talent after the top three tackles. Which none of them will fall to us at 19. We can get just as good rt in the second, but not a te or s of their caliber.

    • Paul Newbold

      the jets will take him if the dolphins don’t. he’ll likely be gone before ny picks though. dolphins would love this kid!

  • Jake

    I don’t get it, last week you had Minnesota trading back to #12 with the Giants (a pretty crazy scenario I thought considering what you had involved) and taking Bridgewater and this week you have them holding on at #8 and taking Mosley. Are we just throwing darts at a board here or what? Why the change? Why the inconsistency? The Vikings didn’t make any moves in the last week that would change their priorities, Bridgewater didn’t do anything to diminish his stock. I don’t get it. And now you have the Giants holding at #12 (instead of trading with Minn.) and taking a DT when last week you had them trading up to #8 to take a TE. What’s going on here? Why the wild inconsistency?

    • Erik Lambert

      For the very reason you wrote out that comment. It creates discussion. In truth I feel the 2nd round offer enough cushion at QB to allow taking another need early. Mosley is exactly what they need.

  • Guy Smith

    What is wrong if a team is Desperate to move up, especially if a QB or WR is still available at #16, and Maneuver to get a High second rounder, take Jernigan with our first rounder, hope Crichton is there with that high second rounder, and use our pick at @47 for a safety like Deone Buchannon or a Offensive lineman??

  • Rick Talley

    Very intriguing trade for Rams # 2. I think that might get it done. Snead would have his coveted 2, first round picks next year when a quarterback might be in play. Plus, I think you are right to think one of the top 3 tackles will slide to #10……maybe even Mathews. I do think they will take Dennard with 13, instead of HaHa; which would be ok with me. And Fairley would be better in the Loo with Williams at the defensive helm. I likey

    • Jim Ellis

      Agreed. Not a bad trade. Also I agree regarding the CB from Michigan State

      • Erik Lambert

        A lot of Rams fans are split on this. Several want Ha Ha while others want Dennard or Gilbert from Oklahoma State. It’s really a tossup.

  • nc0gnet0

    Interesting trade, picks plus Farley to St.Louis to move up to #2. Would St. Louis be interested, and do they have cap space? Do the Lions need to trade up to #2 for Watkins, or could they afford to gamble a bit and trade up to #4 or #5 ? What would the difference in cost be?

    • Erik Lambert

      Remember Fairley is still on his rookie contract for 2014 with an option for 2015, so the Rams can definitely afford him. Mark my words there is no way Cleveland or Oakland will agree to a deal if Watkins is there. The Rams are the best bet.

      • nc0gnet0

        True, I wonder if the lions could deal Suh instead, and not have to give up next years first round pick. Cleveland of Oakland might listen to that trade.

        • Erik Lambert

          Suh’s salary cap number is ridiculous. I know Oakland and Cleveland have space but do their coaches really have the presence to handle a headcase like Suh? Ironically I think the only guy who does is Jeff Fisher and his team can’t afford it. It’s a nice idea but not as feasible as Fairley to me.

          • nc0gnet0

            True about Suh, it might help if they got him re-negotiated prior to draft day. At least at Oakland he would put butts in the seats. I love the idea of trading up for Watkins, but wonder if a trade up to 5-6-7 and taking Evans might not be the better move, figuring it would not cost them next years number one.

          • Erik Lambert

            Five would be your best bet since I believe Tampa Bay will take Evans at #7. The Falcons might be an option if they don’t move up but if the Texans or Rams move down to that spot I doubt they’ll move down again because they’ll want one of the top prospects.

          • nc0gnet0

            So which in your opinion would be the better move. Watkins seems to be a better fit for the lions (already have plenty of height at receiver, they need speed, but getting Evans might not demand quite the premium)? I was thinking to trade up to five, swapping first rounds picks, toss in Farley and a third rounder.

          • Erik Lambert

            The Lions are at a point where their roster is ready for championship run. Evans is a nice safe move in a trade scenario but many feel his true value is in the 8-15 range. He’s a good player but Watkins is a game changer. It’s not just speed that make him great it’s vision, agility, strength and toughness that allow him to make plays no matter where the offense is on the field. Evans can’t say the same. So while it might cost more, I believe Watkins is worth every penny.

  • Alfredo Martinez

    McCay is fall in love with Kony Ealy… I can see this pick for cowboys in a trade down scenario and aditional second round pick…with 2 picks in the second round you could add Ryan Shazier and Demarcus Lawrence…3 pre draft valley ranch visitors

  • Paul Newbold

    Interesting piece as always Eric. I’d love Ebron to be there at #18 for the Jets. If Not, I could see them chasing a corner, or a guard up the board slightly. I know everyone in NY is screaming for a first round receiver, but with the depth of this draft they can afford to wait. I think Rex will win the argument and go defense in the first…and as unpopular as it might be in NY, they may go defense again in the second. I see them going OLB in the second if Rex gets his way. With two top defensive picks, the Jets set themselves up long term defensively. Drafting receivers in the third and fourth and adding a developmental guard as well, will allow them to improve offensively, and develop talent for the future. Jet fans are getting excited about a play off run…and forget we’re still rebuilding. :) Thanks for the read!

    • Erik Lambert

      Thank you for reading. Initially I actually had them moving up for somebody but as I re-evaluated the board I came to the conclusion that Ebron would likely fall to them. Their chance to move up would come later. Read the second round sheet to see.

      • Paul Newbold

        I agree if they don’t move up in the first, they will likely make a move in the second. Another intriguing move is if they were to move down in the first, they could pick up an extra second or third and still have a first rounder later on the board. More than likely though I can see them staying put at 18 and making a move after that, either up the board in the second, or if they can find a trading partner…back into the late first. They still have flexibility, but really need to get the best they can get out of the first 3 rounds!

        • Erik Lambert

          Based on my three rounds they can fill each of their needs with quality talents, leaving the remainder of the draft to hunt for BPA.

  • Matthew

    jaguars aren’t taking a qb at #3. furthermore, you just wrote a stupid article about how manziel was the “best fit” for jax. if that were the case, why wouldn’t you have them choosing manziel at 3?

    • Erik Lambert

      Things change Matthew. Your opinion on my articles matters very little to me. Just because I view Manziel as a good natural fit doesn’t mean the Jaguars are going to draft him. Bortles is better suited for the NFL level and has more long-term upside. As much as they may want to trade down or consider another prospect, quarterback is by far their most glaring need. Have a nice day.

      • Matthew

        apparently my opinion matters somewhat or else you wouldn’t have felt the need to reply back and justify your position.

        jax perhaps has the least amount of talent on an nfl roster (maybe oakland can save them from that distinction unless people think aging veterans are the way to go). they’re not going to force a pick on a qb in the first round. if they were picking first and andrew luck was out there, sure, but then they wouldn’t be forcing anything.

        clowney, mack or watkins would give them high impact players at important positions on the field and are much safer. i wouldn’t even rule out an offensive lineman if they went with best available player and had one ranked way higher than anyone else. if they truly have their heart set on a qb in the first round, it would behoove them to trade back. of course, they would need a trading partner and while sitting at 3 isn’t as nice as 1 or 2, i think some GM will be desperate enough to try and move up.

  • Rich

    Why not trade back again instead of taking Ealy at 19?

    • Erik Lambert

      Trade back with who? Philly is in the division. Packers have no reason to move up. Chiefs don’t have the picks. Niners already moved up for Gilbert. Bengals and Chargers have no reason. Browns are your best hope and I don’t see anybody on the board they’d be willing to give up the picks for.

  • David

    I still think that is to high for Kony as well..

    • Erik Lambert

      I don’t.

  • Mike Brand

    if thats the best in round 1 for the packers i say trade out of the first and get what we need in day 2 and day 3 where ted always finds his best players .

    • Mike Brand

      also do you even know anything about the packers and their needs . i dont see the packers picking any of these guys . tuitt is damaged goods and may miss the first year so why would we pick a guy that cant even play in his first year with the #21 pick that pick holds lots of value to a team like the texans who need a qb

  • Diegoblue

    We need better than Norwood .. We need speed plus I think the 4th rd is too high for him

  • Dewight Mitchell

    it a win win situation for the lions

    • Dewight Mitchell

      if they do it

  • Paul Engleson

    The Vikings are Going to take Either Bridgewater or Justin Gilbert CB OSU in the first round. In the 2nd Rd they will take a CB if they haven’t already takes a QB in 3rd & 4th Rounds they will take LB’s after that whey will take OL Why because those are what the needs are of the Vikings. Why do you People say “Well the Vikings need to fill these needs then you go and say Well I think they will take a RB when they don’t need one Get Real and stay consistent with the teams needs OK>

  • tfjck

    A Fairley trade and a future 1st rounder will never happen. This is pretty far fetched even for a fantasy draft. Fairley will play at a higher level than any DT’s taken in this years draft.

  • Guy Smith

    Even if we have to give up a Second rounder Plus in next years draft, I would like to have a Second -2nd rounder (higher than #47) and add a DEnd, DT, OLineman and a safety. We would Still have enough picks to add some depth later

  • 3kolu

    The Vikes need to trade down if they are going to draft Mosely.
