2014 NFL Mock Draft Update: More Picks Your Team Won’t Make


Since many of you didn’t catch on last time, we’re going to do this again. This mock draft represents players your team obviously will not be making in a couple of weeks when the draft kicks off.

Or will they…?

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

I don’t really see the fit here. Jadeveon Clowney along with J.J. Watt? How will there be enough sacks to go around?

2. St. Louis Rams (f/WSH): Khalil Mack, DE/LB, Buffalo

Like pairing Clowney and Watt in Houston, putting Mack at SAM linebacker with the Rams and their duo of Robert Quinn and Chris Long isn’t necessary.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

The Jaguars would never pick a receiver here. Watkins has good potential in the NFL, but clearly he’s not going to the Jaguars because they are sold on the QBs of this draft.

4. Cleveland Browns: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

The Browns have a slot to be filled at right tackle, and with two first round picks, there’s no reason to spend this one on the best lineman in the draft when you already have Joe Thomas.

5. Oakland Raiders: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

The Raiders are set at quarterback, and I’m sure if Bortles were on the board here they would pass.

6. Atlanta Falcons: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

The Falcons don’t need any upgrades on the offensive line. The protection for Matt Ryan was great last year.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

Having both Vincent Jackson AND Mike Evans? That would be a terrible idea. There IS such thing as too much size in the NFL at wide receiver.

8. Minnesota Vikings: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

The Vikings are OK at QB, that’s why they brought in and started Josh Freeman last year. Plus, Johnny Manziel is too popular off the field.

9. Buffalo Bills: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

The Bills cycled through QBs last year like dirty laundry, but there wasn’t anything wrong with their protection.

10. Detroit Lions: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

Why would the Lions take a tight end? No reason to add a dynamic playmaker to the offense to take pressure off of Calvin Johnson.

11. Tennessee Titans: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA

Moving to the 3-4 defense, the Titans have no need to add a pass rusher like Barr who is scheme versatile.

12. New York Giants: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

Donald is too small to succeed in the NFL, despite his elite strength, explosiveness, and production. The Giants will pass.

13. St. Louis Rams: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

The Rams taking two defenders? Forget about it. Not a possibility. They don’t need to upgrade safety bad enough to take Clinton-Dix here.

14. Chicago Bears: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

The Bears taking a corner who doubles as a return specialist? After Devin Hester left?! No.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders this year and Mike Wallace last year, but that doesn’t matter. Beckham would be a worthless pick here.

16. Dallas Cowboys: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State

The Cowboys don’t need any help on the defensive front, so they aren’t going to pick Jernigan here.

17. Baltimore Ravens: Zack Martin, OL, Notre Dame

Who is taking over at right tackle for departed Michael Oher? It doesn’t matter. Martin is considered a top 12 value by some but certainly not the Ravens.

18. New York Jets: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

The Jets upgraded their offense in free agency, and let go of Antonio Cromartie. I doubt they are looking to upgrade their defensive backfield.

19. Miami Dolphins: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

The Dolphins’ offensive line is good enough as-is. No need for a guy like Kouandjio to come in and take the RT position.

20. Arizona Cardinals: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

Carson Palmer didn’t over-achieve last year. The Cardinals are banking on him for a long-term solution and even if Bridgewater falls here, his skills aren’t enticing enough to not pass and go for another position.

21. Green Bay Packers: C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama

Mosley was a fantastic inside linebacker at Alabama, but his skills would not be of any use in Green Bay, where they have had elite production out of the middle linebacker position the last few years.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Marqise Lee, WR, USC

The Eagles released DeSean Jackson, but they’ve got it covered with Jeremy Maclin coming off that ACL injury, signing a one-year deal. Letting go of Jason Avant doesn’t matter either.

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

Pryor isn’t a good value here, and the Chiefs could look to other areas of need in the first round than pairing Eric Berry with a hard-hitting strong safety.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

Dennard would fill a need at corner for the Bengals, but despite his value here there’s no reason for them to cash in. There are other players available they could benefit from taking.

25. San Diego Chargers: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame

The Chargers don’t have any holes on the defensive line, so grabbing Nix here would be a waste of time.

26. Cleveland Browns (f/IND): Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The Browns taking a QB at the bottom of the first round? Nope. Not even the guy they are rumored to have the most interest in.

27. New Orleans Saints: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State

The Saints lost Brian De La Puente? Who cares! There’ll be a decent center available in the middle rounds to take over the calls on a Super Bowl contending offensive line.

28. Carolina Panthers: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

The Panthers are NOT taking a receiver in round one. Cooks especially.

29. New England Patriots: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

The Patriots don’t need a second tight end. There won’t be enough balls to go around.

30. San Francisco 49ers: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

The Niners have so many picks in this draft, but it would be a waste of time to take a corner like Fuller here.

31. Denver Broncos: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

The Broncos’ defense already has enough speed, and Shazier can’t shed blocks so he’s of no use to Denver.

32. Seattle Seahawks: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

The Seahawks lost/let go of a couple starting offensive linemen this offseason, but Moses wouldn’t be able to find a niche on this Super Bowl roster.

  • ryan theroux

    The raiders wouldn’t draft a qb in the first round they are in win now mode so if you are being sarcastic you missed on the raiders pick

    • SayreBedinger

      The Raiders are in win now mode? Just wanna get on the same page there.

      • ryan theroux

        If u dont know what a team has done the past couple years then u shouldnt waste your breathe talking about them. The raiders have signed proven winners on both sides of the ball. They were bad the last two seasons because RM was cleaning up al davis’ mess and had to have alot of dead money on the books. RM has signed four players with a total 6 superbowls and stole both of the 49ers corners. So make sure and understand a topic before u start a debate

        • Travis Majors

          LOL…win now mode….hahahaha

  • Wayne Davis

    BahaHa wtf? Lmao

  • TommyT

    LOL, pretty funny. And watch, the one time Raiders and Jags dont take a chance on a QB, one might flourish

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks, and I agree!

  • Donald Arner

    LOL! I think if CJ Mosley falls to 21,I’d bet on the Packers taking him for sure!

    • SayreBedinger

      Would be a smart pick!

  • Jake

    Haha, maybe us readers should give you negative feedback more often..
    Funny article worth the read Lol

  • Johnny

    That’s a HUGE REACH for T Cyrus at #19… No way is he a 1st round talent..

    • SayreBedinger

      Johnny, thanks for your comment. Teams DO reach in the 1st round. Even our favorite ones.

      • Johnny

        Well… I think instead of that reach.. ILB CJ MOSLEY IS STILL ON THE BOARD!!!! Could have CJ Mosley AND T Cyrus in the 2nd round!!

  • Johnny

    No way the Dolphins take T Cyrus at #19.. That’s a huge reach!!! AND ILB CJ MOSLEY IS STILL AVAILABE???????
    What??? The Phins can get the best ILB in CJ Mosley AND get your T Cyrus (who you have us picking at 19) in the 2nd round… In that case .. We get LB CJ Mosley AND T Cyrus ( in 2nd) .. Sounds a lot better when you can get the top ILB and the T you got us picking in the 1st in the 2nd round…
    That’s a wasted pick and a huge reach.. Especially after his terrible combine and injury history (knees)

  • Rick Talley

    Good mock! But haven’t I seen this before? Just remember, you can’t fix stupid!

    • SayreBedinger

      I figure if I say this is who their team isn’t taking, the most people will disagree with that type of statement.

  • micah

    This time I made sure to read the top to make sure this is a joke.

  • Richard Lee Ochoa

    For Johnny Manziel that He is a Dallas Cowboys At Heart But He Will Be #16 Draft for the Dallas Cowboys So the Vikings Needs a Quarterback For #8 For Somsebody Else

  • Josh Hart

    Only argument would be the Browns don’t have a slot to fill at RT. Schwartz played much better when he had a decent guard next to him.

    • Dave

      And RTs don’t get drafted in the top 5. Its a horrible allocation of resources, thats like spending 300$ on a trash can or a 3 round pick on a punter.
