Day 3 is no less important to any 2014 NFL mock draft, including the community edition. Our panel of writers had a field day in the frantic finish of this experiment. How do you think they fared?
Remember that each team has three minutes to pick and can offer trades at any time. Your writers are Sayre Bedinger, Geoff Zlobinsky, MacKenzie Pantoja, Joe Wedra and Erik Lambert. Click the links below to review the previous days. Enjoy!
101. Houston Texans: Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
Erik Says: Ben Tate is gone and the injury issues are piling up for Arian Foster. Ka’Deem Carey is a great value find this late in the draft. Strong, tough and good vision.
102. Washington Redskins: Telvin Smith, LB, Florida State
Sayre Says: Versatile, ultra-athletic linebacker who is always around the ball making plays.
103. Atlanta Falcons: Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina
MacKenzie Says: A big but agile pass rusher with great measurables and potential whose biggest enemy is inconsistency.
104. New York Jets: Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida
Sayre Says: This is a guy who was previously being talked about as a first round pick. He is a fantastic value for us here in the fourth round.
105. Jacksonville Jaguars: Demarcus Lawrence, DE, Boise State
Erik Says: Gus Bradley needs to keep adding pass rushers. Demarcus Lawrence is a versatile talent with enough athleticism to play standing up or with his hand in the dirt.
106. Cleveland Browns: Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford
Joe Says: I think Skov is a player that has the potential to be taken within the top-100, so I jumped quick on this pick! Depth in the line backing corps is crucial and I felt like this would help the Browns out in more ways than one. Skov can play – don’t sleep on him!
107. Oakland Raiders: Christian Jones, LB, Florida State
Joe Says: Jones is a very interesting prospect. His play goes up and down a few times on tape and it’s hard to project where he’ll really go. Utimately, this was a safe pick considering I was sitting at 107. Who knows, I might have taken a pro-bowler here! If he plays to his full potential, it’s possible.
108. Minnesota Vikings: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh
Geoff Says: Four words – Sleeper. Of. The. Class.
109. Buffalo Bills: T.J. Jones, WR, Notre Dame
Joe Says: I’ve been a fan of Jones since I first watched Notre Dame to start the season. Every time he touches the ball, something special happens. The Bills could use another weapon for Manuel and I think Jones can be that guy. Don’t be surprised if he gets snaps starting Week One.
110. Arizona Cardinals (f/STL): Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas
MacKenzie Says: He’s not much help against the run but Jackson Jeffcoat has the burst and athleticism the Cardinals want coming off the edge.
111. Detroit Lions: Christian Kirksey, LB, Iowa
Sayre Says: Kirksey is an incredibly gifted linebacker with athletic ability that can fly around for the Lions’ defense. He showed incredible improvement year to year in his time at Iowa.
112. Tennessee Titans: Terrance West, RB, Towson
MacKenzie Says: Chris Johnson is gone and the Titans need a replacement. Terrance West carried his school on his back and had very good run-receive ability.
113. New York Giants: James Gayle, DE, Virginia Tech
Joe Says: Gayle is a really fun guy to watch here. He had some domainant performances against some good players, but a few games that didn’t exactly pop. Overall, he’s solid depth for a defensive line and a good risk-reward selection at 113.
114. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/BAL): Josh Huff, WR, Oregon
Erik Says: He’s not big and struggles with drops but his speed, fluidity and natural playmaking instinct give the Jaguars a dangerous player with the ball in his hands.
115. New York Jets: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
Sayre Says: We’re keeping tabs on our QB position and making sure to cover all bases. McCarron is a winner who has been compared to Tom Brady, the guy we can’t beat.
116. St. Louis Rams (f/MIA): Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
Erik Says: This guy was a borderline first round pick a month ago. He may have fallen down boards for his Senior Bowl struggles but he’s still one of the best run blockers and athletic enough to improve his pass protection.
117. Chicago Bears: Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
Erik Says: I had planned to start on the offense by now but seeing Victor Hampton on the board postponed everything. The South Carolina corner has character questions but he’s a great athlete, dangerous in coverage and a physical tackler.
118. Pittsburgh Steelers: Morgan Breslin, LB, USC
Erik Says: Before getting hurt in 2013 there were few better pass rushers in college football than Morgan Breslin. He’s a natural fit for the Steelers defense and has steal potential.
119. Dallas Cowboys: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
MacKenzie Says: Dez Bryant is the big receiver for Dallas and he’s 6’2″. So why not give Romo an even bigger target with the 6’6″ Brandon Coleman.
120. Arizona Cardinals: Kenny Ladler, S, Vanderbilt
MacKenzie Says: Only 21-years old and already experienced. Ladler has the athleticism to play free safety but also can tackle and hit. Good versatility.
121. Green Bay Packers: Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon
MacKenzie Says: Somebody is going to give the hyper-athletic Colt Lyerla a shot. The Packers have the need, locker room, coach and quarterback to help him thrive.
122. Philadelphia Eagles: Lamin Barrow, LB, LSU
Geoff Says: Barrow was interesting to watch while he was at LSU. He can play at a high-level, but he’ll need to be more consistent at the next level. The Eagles need as much help as they can get on the defensive side of the ball…Barrow helps here late in the 4th.
123. Cincinnati Bengals: Brett Smith, QB, Wyoming
MacKenzie Says: Andy Dalton can expect competition in 2014. Brett Smith gets overlooked because of his mechanics but he’s an athlete with a good arm and upside.
124. Kansas City Chiefs: Marqueston Huff, S, Wyoming
Erik Says: Eric Berry needs help on the back end of the Chiefs defense. Marqueston Huff impressed coaches at the Senior Bowl and has versatility as both a safety and corner. Fast, rangy and very tough.
125. San Diego Chargers: Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia
Joe Says: Antonio Gates isn’t the young weapon in San Diego anymore and the team could use another tight end to seal things up on the offensive side of the ball. Lynch is just outside of the “big four” of tight ends, but he has the potential to be a great fit with Phillip Rivers.
126. New Orleans Saints: Jalen Saunders, WR, Oklahoma
Erik Says: The loss of Darren Sproles was an undeniable blow for the Saints. They really could use another like him. Jalen Saunders is a quick, nifty slot receiver who excels on punt returns much like Sproles did.
127. Cleveland Browns (f/IND): Antone Exum, CB, Virginia Tech
Joe Says: Who doesn’t need help at CB? The Cleveland secondary is good, but adding someone like Exum would give the coaching staff a little insurance in case of injury. Plus, Exum can play! If healthy, his stock goes way up.
128. Carolina Panthers: Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane
Sayre Says: The Panthers need to add a number of players to the WR position so Grant is simply a piece of the puzzle. Not elite speed but great hands.
129. Chicago Bears (f/SF): Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
Erik Says: The fact this kid is widely compared to Matt Forte is enough praise for Chicago. He has the smooth stride, one-cut running style and versatile ability as a receiver and blocker to thrive under Marc Trestman.
130. Cleveland Browns (f/STL): Andre Williams, RB, Boston College
Joe Says: Why not? The Browns bolstered their offense in free agency, but adding Williams would be a safe pick. Talk about “low-risk, high-reward”… This is essentially the definition of that saying. Williams is a pure rusher who put up record numbers at BC.
131. Denver Broncos: Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana
Sayre Says: Versatile, underrated linebacker prospect with great athletic ability that can be a special teams ace from day one for the Broncos.
132. Seattle Seahawks: Chris Davis, CB, Auburn
Sayre Says: Athletic cornerback who can also return kicks (sorry ‘Bama fans) and helps replace Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond.
133. Detroit Lions (comp): Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
Sayre Says: Looking for more versatility at linebacker, we felt like Zumwalt had the size and ability to play a few roles for this team.
134. Baltimore Ravens (comp): Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
Joe Says: Baltimore could use some additional help with their pass-rush. The guys they have now are rather injury-prone and Smith dominated at times on tape. This is one of those “safety picks” here.
135. Houston Texans (comp): Charles Leno, OT, Boise State
Erik Says: Jimmy Garoppolo can’t hope to reach his potential without blocking. Charles Leno needs some polish but under a good coach like Bill O’Brien has load of athletic upside at all three line positions.
136. Detroit Lions (comp): Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton
Sayre Says: Reid is one of the top sleepers in this year’s draft. He adds an athletic presence to the Lions’ defensive line rotation.
137. New York Jets (comp): Crockett Gillmore, TE, Colorado State
Sayre Says: The Jets continue to add playmaking ability to their offense with Gillmore, the 6’6” pass catcher out of Colorado State.
138. Baltimore Ravens (comp): James White, RB, Wisconsin
Joe Says: Pierce and Rice and uncertain at-best on this depth chart and the Ravens need a security blanket. White is one of the most underrated running backs in this class.
139. Atlanta Falcons (comp): James Hurst, OL, North Carolina
MacKenzie Says: Matt Ryan has gotten by on modest blocking too long. James Hurst is an injury risk but can run and pass block like a starter when healthy.
140. New England Patriots (comp): Weston Richburg, C, ColoradoState
Erik Says: Center is an overlooked area of need for New England. Weston Richburg is their kind of player with great intelligence, technique and leadership needed to make all the calls up front.
141. Houston Texans: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
Erik Says: Jonathan Joseph is still the man but the Texans have to think about adding some young corners. Phillip Gaines is an intriguing talent with lots of upside in a 3-4 system.
142. Washington Redskins: Mike Davis, WR, Texas
Sayre Says: The Redskins need to get some more targets for RG3. Getting Andre Roberts helps, but aside from Pierre Garcon, nothing is a sure thing for the Redskins outside.
143. St. Louis Rams (f/TB): Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
Erik Says: The perfect stash-away pick. Before tearing his ACL, Aaron Colvin was one of the top corners in the nation and can be again. He needs time to heal and can thrive under Jeff Fisher.
144. Jacksonville Jaguars: Justin Ellis, DT, Louisiana Tech
Erik Says: Red Bryant was a great pickup as a run stuff for the Jags but he’s is into his 30s. Justin Ellis has the size and strength to become a successor in that line of duty.
145. Cleveland Browns: Dri Archer, RB, Kent State
Joe Says: Many will sleep on Archer because of his small-school history at Kent State. In reality, he was one of the fastest players in the MAC and was an electric playmaker. The Browns would categorize this selection as an “offensive weapon”. Archer is just that.
146. Seattle Seahawks (f/OAK): Will Clarke, DE, West Virginia
Sayre Says: The Seahawks need to add some depth to their DE rotation, and Clarke is a fantastic value in the 5th round here.
147. Atlanta Falcons: Jerrick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
MacKenzie Says: Running back was disappointing last year and the Falcons need more out of it. Jerrick McKinnon is a freak athlete. With some polish he can become a dynamic weapon out of the backfield.
148. Minnesota Vikings: Isaiah Crowell, RB, Alabama State
Geoff Says: Adrian Peterson, ultimately, is an injury risk. Minnesota needs some insurance behind “AD” and Crowell brings that. He’s probably one of the most slept-on prospects in 2014 and he’s sure to make an impact wherever he goes. Any coaching staff is going to be pleasantly surprised with Crowell in camp.
149. Buffalo Bills: Prince Shembo, LB, Notre Dame
Joe Says: Shembo here was a selection that I was pretty proud of. I was glad he fell here because I think he’s a heck of a talent that did really good at Michigan State. He’ll add much needed depth.
150. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/DET): Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama
Erik Says: The quarterbacks continue to get weapons added to the arsenal. Where Huff was the big play threat, Norwood is the reliable, intelligent go-to guy you look for on third down.
151. Tennessee Titans: Bene Benwikere, CB, San Jose State
The loss of Alterraun Verner hurt. Bene Benwikere offers good depth with ballhawking instinct to ease the pressure.
152. New York Giants: Storm Johnson, RB, UCF
Joe Says: I really like Storm Johnson and think he can be an impact sleeper in this draft. While he isn’t at the level of the top-tier guys, he played great next to Blake Bortles at UCF. He might be Able to make a roster spot in 2014 and get some playing time if any injuries happen.
153. St. Louis Rams: Deion Belue, CB, Alabama
Erik Says: He’s a developmental prospect who needs to bulk up but comes from a proven system at Alabama and has good physical qualities that could make him a very good slot corner.
154. New York Jets: Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama
Sayre Says: Steen has some injury issues pushing him down the board, but if healthy, he can be a starting guard in his rookie season.
155. Indianapolis Colts (f/MIA): Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State
Geoff Says: Donald Brown wasn’t a star but he did some good things for the Colts. Devonta Freeman was overlooked at FSU but he has the chops to replace what Brown gave them from a versatility standpoint.
156. Chicago Bears: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana
Erik Says: Stockpiling big, athletic receivers is the new vocation in Chicago. Cody Latimer fits that mold at 6’3″ with really good speed and agility. He can become a great slot option for them.
157. Pittsburgh Steelers: Trai Turner, OG, LSU
Erik Says: Trai Turner knows how to play Steeler football. He has the size and strength to get after it in the running game. With some added polish he can become an eventual starter on the interior.
158. Dallas Cowboys: Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forest
MacKenzie Says: A pre-draft standout, Michael Campanaro is a slippery receiver with a simple knack for getting open. Dallas loves receivers like that.
159. Carolina Panthers (f/JAX): Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State
Trade: Panthers send 168th pick and 2nd in ’15 for Justin Blackmon and 159th pick
Sayre Says: The Panthers wanted to upgrade at WR in this draft, and with Davante Adams and now Justin Blackmon, we feel solid about our group. Adding this pick here was icing on the cake as we were able to get a physical corner from the Pac 12 who can eventually start for us.
160. Arizona Cardinals: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
MacKenzie Says: Bruce Arians needs to start planning for life after Carson Palmer. David Fales is a savvy, pinpoint accurate passer from SJSU with great production and lots to prove.
161. Green Bay Packers: Cody Hoffman, WR, BYU
MacKenzie Says: Scouts aren’t sure about Cody Hoffman but at 6’4″ he has the hands and athleticism to develop into something serious down the road.
162. Philadelphia Eagles: Ricardo Allen, CB, Purdue
Geoff Says: I felt good about Allen here considering all of the details. Allen is a nice sleeper and Philadelphia needs secondary help. While they did address the need earlier, Allen will help sure up the depth chart.
163. Kansas City Chiefs: Max Bullough, LB, Michigan State
Erik Says: This kid is much better than his draft position. A suspension last season hurt Max Bullough but MSU linebacker has the size, strength, toughness and leadership required of an inside linebacker.
164. Cincinnati Bengals: Tre Boston, S, North Carolina
MacKenzie Says: He tackles, he hits and he gets teammates in the right position. Tre Boston should find a niche with the Bengals.
165. San Diego Chargers: Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford
Joe Says: Fleming is a guy that I could see being taken higher than this, so I had to give him to the Chargers. Depth is the key word at this point in the draft – Fleming gives San Diego just that.
166. Miami Dolphins (f/IND): Tyler Starr, LB, South Dakota
Sayre Says: Intriguing small school prospect who is relentless after the football. He’s a very solid mid-round pick.
167. New Orleans Saints: Nevin Lawson, CB, Utah State
Erik Says: A team can never have enough corners. He needs more time to clean up his game but the talent and work ethic is there.
168. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/CAR): Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB, Boston College
Erik Says: His outstanding combine turned some heads, and should’ve. Kevin Pierre-Louis has the production as proof he can play and with more work he can make plays for the Jaguars.
169. New Orleans Saints (f/PHI via NE): Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford
Erik Says: Sproles is gone as is Chris Ivory. The Saints still have bodies at running back but they love to stockpile them. Tyler Gaffney is a value pick who has the strength and toughness to handle heavy loads of carries.
170. San Francisco 49ers: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
Sayre Says: The Niners are stock-piling QBs for the future that can either be really good backups, yield picks in a trade, or both.
171. Denver Broncos: Tyler Larsen, C, Utah State
Sayre Says: Larsen has starting potential at the center position and can play guard if need be. He’s a durable player who will give them depth and a guy who can take over in the future at this position.
172. Seattle Seahawks: A.C. Leonard, TE, Tennessee State
Sayre Says: Ultra-athletic TE prospect that gives Seattle another speedy playmaker offensively to work with.
173. Pittsburgh Steelers (comp): Xavier Grimble, TE, USC
Erik Says: This pick is not about instant gratification. Pittsburgh already has Heath Miller but they need a project in place for the future. Xavier Grimble has the size, athleticism and hands to become a monster.
174. New York Giants (comp): Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley St.
Joe Says: With a comp. pick, I couldn’t go wrong here. Eli Manning could use a few more weapons and Janis May bring the small-school heart to training camp. Who knows – maybe he’ll see the field a bit in the years to come. The talent is there, that’s for sure!
175. Baltimore Ravens (comp): Ross Cockrell, CB, Duke
Joe Says: Cockrell has some really nice tape and I was pleased to be able to grab him with a comp. pick here. Baltimore needs added legs in the secondary. If Cockrell can play special teams, he might find himself battling for a spot on the 53-man roster
176. Green Bay Packers (comp): John Spooney, RB, Brown
MacKenzie Says: He’s not yet a football player, but Spooney is a true athlete with the strength and speed to become a factor with a little time.
177. Houston Texans – Brock Vereen, FS, Minnesota
Erik Says: Losing Daniel Manning hurt the depth at safety for Houston. Brock Vereen is a rangy, athletic kid who has the physical chops to make it in the pros.
178. Washington Redskins – Justin Britt – OT – Missouri
Geoff Says: The Redskins get a highly overlooked blocker who can play on the left or right sides or even the interior.
179. Jacksonville Jaguars – Aaron Lynch – DE – South Florida
Geoff Says: Gus Bradley believes in his ability to develop. Aaron Lynch is the ultimate unpolished diamond as a pass rusher.
180. Cleveland Browns – Joe Don Duncan – TE – Dixie State
Joe Says: Duncan is a sleeper in this draft that will get drafted later than he should. He dominated small schools, but he projects to be a guy who can make a team in May. (His name is awesome, too.)
181. Houston Texans (f/OAK) – Nat Berhe – SS – San Diego State
Erik Says: Why not double down? Nat Berhe plays fast, shows great awareness and throws his body around in coverage or tackling.
182. Atlanta Falcons – Russell Bodine – G – North Carolina
MacKenzie Says: More blocking help for Matt Ryan. Bodine can play both guard and center for the Falcons.
183. Chicago Bears (f/TB) – Tom Savage – QB – Pitt
Erik Says: This late in the draft is a real theft for the Bears. Tom Savage is a sleeper. Great arm talent, big body, underrated mobility and experience in a pro style attack. Terrific Jay Cutler backup/insurance.
184. Minnesota Vikings – De’Anthony Thomas – RB – Oregon
Geoff Says: A speedy, deceptively strong runner who would make a perfect compliment to Adrian Peterson. Return ability as well.
185. Buffalo Bills – Seantrel Henderson – OT – Miami
Joe Says: Henderson has the potential to be taken on Day Two, so I was excited to be able to make this pick here. He has a few bad games on tape, but he looks like a first-rounder at times.
186. Tennessee Titans – Ronald Powell – DE – Florida
MacKenzie Says: A strong and athletic edge rusher, Powell is a perfect fit for the Titans but needs to work on his consistency issues.
187. New York Giants – Michael Schofield – OT – Michigan
Joe Says: Taylor Lewan is the best tackle from Michigan, but Schofield can play too. This pick gives the G-Men some much-needed depth on that offensive line.
188. St. Louis Rams – DeAndre Coleman – DT – Cal
Erik Says: Pass rush is the selling point for the Rams defensive front but to do that they must stop the run. Putting the big, powerful Coleman in the middle would really help with that.
189. Detroit Lions – Kerry Hyder – DT – Texas Tech
Sayre Says: Lions take some depth for the defensive line and hope Hyder is a player that can crack the rotation as a rookie.
190. Miami Dolphins – Bryan Stork – C – Florida State
Sayre Says: Stork is solid value in the 6th round with starter potential in the NFL.
191. Chicago Bears – Marcel Jensen – TE – Fresno State
Erik Says: Taking raw talent is typical in the draft and Marcel Jensen has loads of it. He was used mostly as a run blocker at Fresno State but he has the size, speed and good hands to become a threat in the passing game.
192. Pittsburgh Steelers – Walt Aikens – CB – Liberty
Erik Says: Another small school sleeper with great measurable athletic ability and size. He flashes on tape in both press and zone coverages with plenty of toughness to play the run.
193. Kansas City Chiefs (f/DAL) – Adrian Hubbard – OLB – Alabama
Erik Says: This could be a late round steal for KC. He’s not a gifted pass rusher but Adrian Hubbard has the length and power to develop into a very solid five-technique defensive end.
194. Baltimore Ravens – Matt Patchen – OT – Boston College
Joe Says: The Ravens took Jack Mewhort earlier in this draft, but they could use some depth. The tackle spot on the depth chart is very thin, giving Patchan the ability to make this roster.
195. New York Jets – Michael Sam – DE – Missouri
Sayre Says: Jets take Sam to play the rush LB position and get a guy who was one of the most productive pass rushers in the SEC.
196. Arizona Cardinals – Carlos Fields Jr. – ILB – Winston Salem State
MacKenzie Says: Size and stiffness have gotten him hidden but Carlos Fields shows the instincts, reaction and toughness for the pros.
197. Green Bay Packers – Laurent Duvernay-Tardif – OT – McGill
MacKenzie Says: He’s a wild card coming out of Canada but there is no denying the blocking prowess of Duvernay-Tardif in this 2014 NFL mock draft.
198. New England Patriots (f/PHI) – Avery Williamson – ILB – Kentucky
Geoff Says: Linebacker took some tough hits for the Pats in free agency. Williamson is a sure tackler who excels against the run and fits their defense.
199. Cincinnati Bengals – Wesley Johnson – C – Vanderbilt
MacKenzie Says: He played tackle in school but Johnson has the quickness and smarts to excel as a center for Cincinnati.
200. Kansas City Chiefs – Brent Urban – DE – Virginia
Erik Says: One steal, two steal, red steal, blue steal. Another five-technique sleeper, Brent Urban played defensive tackle at Virginia but his outstanding length and quickness make him a pass rush threat.
201. San Diego Chargers – Bennie Fowler – WR – Michigan State
Joe Says: The Chargers are thin at receiver and they could use a safety blanket in case one of their starter gets hurt. Fowler has the experience against good talent – look for him to make an impact!
202. New Orleans Saints – L’Damian Washington – WR – Missouri
Erik Says: Success with late round receivers is a calling card for the Saints. L’Damian Washington is a great project to take on. At 6’4″ he runs with 4.4 speed and is a tireless worker. With more refinement and bulk he can become a stud in time.
203. Indianapolis Colts – Howard Jones – OLB – Sheperd
Geoff Says: A small school sleeper, Jones has pass rush prowess Indy should be just dying to unlock next to Robert Mathis.
204. Carolina Panthers – Shaquille Richardson – CB – Arizona
Sayre Says: Panthers add some competition to their CB position and get one of the Pac 12’s top athletes at the position.
205. Jacksonville Jaguars (f/SF) – Richard Rodgers – TE – Cal
Geoff Says: Inconsistency with his coaches held him back, but Richard Rodgers has upside as a pass catcher with more work.
206. New England Patriots – Eathyn Manumaleuna – DT – BYU
Geoff Says: He’s not elite but Manumaleuna is a dedicated worker who gets a lot out of his talent. The Patriots make good use of such players.
207. Denver Broncos – Andre Hal – CB – Vanderbilt
Sayre Says: Hal was an All-SEC performer in consecutive years and could fight his way onto the roster or practice squad.
208. Seattle Seahawks – John Brown WR, Pittsburgh State
Sayre Says: Very intriguing sleeper WR with speed to burn. Seahawks have done well developing unheralded WRs in recent years.
209. New York Jets (comp) – John Urschel, G, Penn State
Sayre Says: Jets get some depth for their offensive line with a gritty Big 10 player.
210. New York Jets (comp) – Tevin Reese – WR – Baylor
Sayre Says: Reese comes from a prolific passing offense and is a nice upside pick at this stage for the Jets, who need offensive playmakers.
211. Houston Texans (comp) – Logan Thomas – QB – Virginia Tech
Erik Says: Garoppolo is the main guy but nobody said the Texans had to take just one quarterback. Logan Thomas is arguably the most intriguing physical specimen in this 2014 NFL mock draft. He’s got tons of upside, but is very inconsistent.
212. Cincinnati Bengals (comp) – Khairi Fortt – OLB – Cal
MacKenzie Says: This kid flies around the field. He does his best work in open space and coverage. The Bengals need someone like that.
213. New York Jets (comp) – Connor Shaw – QB – South Carolina
Sayre Says: With nothing set in stone at the QB position, the Jets take a risk on one of the SECs more intriguing QB prospects this year.
214. St. Louis Rams (comp) – Garrett Gilbert – QB – SMU
Erik Says: Sam Bradford is the main guy but the Rams should not shrink from continuing to add to the position. Garrett Gilbert has great measurables (6’3″, 220 lbs) and looked like a future starter at his SMU pro day.
215. Pittsburgh Steelers (comp) – Marion Grice – RB – Arizona State
Erik Says: LeVeon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will provide plenty of power for the Steelers ground game. Marion Grice is the perfect compliment as a speedy scat back who can receive.
216. Houston Texans – Preston Brown – ILB – Louisville
Erik Says: Brian Cushing can’t seem to stay healthy. The Texans add some insurance at ILB with the aggressive and physical Preston Brown.
217. Washington Redskins – Brock Coyle – ILB – Montana
Geoff Says: A driven middle linebacker with enough athleticism to work his way into something more.
218. Cleveland Browns – Keith Wenning – QB – Ball State
Joe Says: I like Keith Wenning a lot. While many will sleep on him, he’d provide a nice backup to the previously-selected Blake Bortles.
219. Oakland Raiders – Ladarius Perkins – RB – Miss St.
Joe Says: Think Darren Sproles potential with an inch more height and a willingness to block.
220. Atlanta Falcons – Ed Stinson – DE – Alabama
MacKenzie Says: How he fell this far is a mystery but the Falcons don’t complain about getting another strong, stout body for their front.
221. St. Louis Rams (f/TB) – Jonathan Dowling – FS – Western Kentucky
Erik Says: Their trade for Church added a starter but that doesn’t mean the Rams should stop. Dowling has great size and speed but lacks polish and discipline.
222. Jacksonville Jaguars – Chandler Jones – WR – San Jose State
Geoff Says: Another weapons for the renewed offense, Jones offers prime slot receiver traits that can be groomed.
223. Minnesota Vikings – Travis Carrie – CB – Ohio
Geoff Says: Mike Zimmer is a wizard with DBs and Carrie has the toughness and ballhawk skill that is made for his defense.
224. Buffalo Bills – Carrington Byndom – CB – Texas
Joe Says: Byndom is a guy I really like this late in the draft. While the flaws in his game are there, he could be a very solid backup at the next level if he gets some good coaching.
225. Carolina Panthers (f/NYG) – James Wilder Jr., RB, Florida State
Sayre Says: Big RB with off-field problems has loads of talent. Could be worth the risk in the 7th.
226. Baltimore Ravens (f/STL) – Tajh Boyd – QB – Clemson
Trade: 234th and 7th in ’15 picks to Rams for 226th pick
Joe Says: Nothing wrong with adding depth at the most important position, especially a proven talent like Boyd.
227. Detroit Lions – Chris Boswell – K – Rice
Sayre Says: Lions get some young competition for their kicker spot.
228. Tennessee Titans – Anthony Fera – K – Texas
MacKenzie Says: A rare versatile specialist who can double as a kicker AND punter. Accurate on both ends. Can help save a roster spot.
229. Dallas Cowboys (f/CHI) – Louis Young – CB – Georgia Tech
MacKenzie Says: He isn’t a fit for every team but young has the size and awareness that meshes with the Cowboys scheme.
230. Pittsburgh Steelers – Andrew Jackson – ILB – Western Kentucky
Erik Says: Every area of the Pittsburgh defense gets a youth infusion. Jackson is a downhill player who tackles hard and can shoot gaps.
231. Dallas Cowboys – Dexter Moody – S – Albany State
MacKenzie Says: Amazing measurables for such a small school prospect but Moody has talent value that can’t be ignored.
232. Indianapolis Colts (f/BAL) – Johnathan Brown – ILB – Illinois
Geoff Says: He has the speed, athleticism and instincts but Brown needs to work on his toughness to reach his potential.
233. New York Jets – Lorenzo Taliaferro – RB – Coastal Carolina
Sayre Says: Sleeper at the RB position who could develop into a nice role player for the Jets.
234. St. Louis Rams (f/BAL) – Cassius Marsh – DE – UCLA
Erik Says: Marsh played in a 3-4 at UCLA but he has the makeup of a Sam outside linebacker who can be used on pass rushing downs where his great motor becomes a factor.
235. Oakland Raiders (f/ARI) – Matt Hazel – WR – Coastal Carolina
Joe Says: All the key parts to being a pro receiver are there for Matt Hazel but he has to get stronger before seeing the field.
236. Green Bay Packers – Henry Josey – RB – Missouri
MacKenzie Says: Agile and speedy runner who tirelessly has overcome adversity. Sure-handed with the ball.
237. Philadelphia Eagles – Ben Gardner – DE – Stanford
Geoff Says: Plays well against the run and is a tone-setter who will outwork those who aren’t committed.
238. Dallas Cowboys (f/KC) – Tim Cornett – RB – UNLV
MacKenzie Says: A size-speed prospect with great long-term potential if he can “get” the football side.
239. Cincinnati Bengals – Josh Mauro – DE – Stanford
MacKenzie Says: An outstanding steal this late in the 2014 NFL mock draft. Big, long and very strong against the run.
240. San Diego Chargers – De-De Lattimore, ILB, South Florida
Joe Says: Lattimore had a few games that stood out in college. He’ll have to fight his way onto a team, but at worst, he’ll be nice to have on the practice squad just in case someone does get injured.
241. St. Louis Rams (f/IND) – Chris Watt, OG, Notre Dame
Erik Says: Notre Dame linemen aren’t always athletic freaks but they are strong, excellent technicians who can fit in almost any scheme. That is Chris Watt.
242. San Francisco 49ers (f/NO) – Trey Millard, FB, Oklahoma
Sayre Says: Millard is one of the best traditional fullbacks in the draft and could carve out a role with San Francisco.
243. San Francisco 49ers (f/CAR) – Brandon Dixon, CB, NW Missouri State
Sayre Says: 49ers continue to add competition to the secondary wit ha small school sleeper.
244. New England Patriots – Kasim Edebali, LB, Boston College
Geoff Says: Made in the Trent Murphy mold. Not the best athlete but finds ways to the quarterback.
245. San Francisco 49ers – Lawrence Virgil, DT, Valdosta State
Sayre Says: Virgil adds some nice depth to the Niners’ defensive line.
246. Denver Broncos – Kapri Bibbs, RB, Colorado State
Sayre Says: RB with some upside who can bring some competition to the Broncos’ RB stable.
247. Seattle Seahawks – Vinnie Sunseri, S, Alabama
Sayre Says: Sunseri is an intriguing athlete who has had some injury issues but is well worth the gamble at this point.
248. Dallas Cowboys (comp) – LeRon Furr, LB, Fort Valley State
MacKenzie Says: Aggressive around the line of scrimmage and has the instincts to blow plays up in the backfield.
249. St. Louis Rams (comp) – Jacob Pedersen, TE, Wisconsin
Erik Says: Pedersen loves to get his hands dirty in various blocking formations and can be a threat as a receiver during play action pass plays.
250. St. Louis Rams (comp) – George Uko, DE, USC
Erik Says: A developmental interior pass rusher. George Uko has a good natural frame and long arm coupled with a burst off the snap that can be cultivated.
251. Dallas Cowboys (comp) – DeRon Furr, S, Fort Valley State
MacKenzie Says: Brother of LeRon, he has intriguing size along with good discipline and instincts.
252. Cincinnati Bengals (comp) – Jay Prosch, FB, Auburn
MacKenzie Says: Throwback from the old days, Jay Prosch can plow open lanes for any running back.
253. Atlanta Falcons (comp) – Quincy Enunwa, WR, Nebraska
MacKenzie Says: H-back isn’t a well-known position but it has merit in the right offenses. Enunwa has solid traits for that spot.
254. Dallas Cowboys (comp) – Rob Blanchflower, TE, UMass
MacKenzie Says: A very good blocking tight end with promise as a developmental pass catcher.
255. Atlanta Falcons (comp) – Devon Kennard, DE, USC
MacKenzie Says: A versatile leader who can lineup in a variety of positions and warrants development.
256. Houston Texans (comp) – Zack Hocker, K, Arkansas
Erik Says: Houston was 26-for-35 on field goals last season. That is not very good. Zack Hocker had a very accurate career at Arkansas and has the leg to consistently hit from long range.
