2014 NFL Mock Draft Update With Trades: Who is Moving Up?


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

Who are the Texans taking number one overall? Clowney question, bro. On a more serious note, the Texans have a tough call here. It’s reportedly down to Clowney or Johnny Manziel, and Houston is faced with a similar decision to the one they had to make in 2006.

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

The Rams’ pass rush is already really good. Adding Khalil Mack gives it the potential to be filthy.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

Anything the Jags get from Justin Blackmon in addition to the playmaking ability of Watkins is a bonus. With Mack/Clowney off the board, this is a no-brainer pick almost for the Jags if they are dead set on not taking a QB.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (f/CLE): Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M 

**TRADE**

The Bucs are not over-stocked on 2014 picks but they could throw a day two pick and a future day two pick the Browns’ way to entice them to move down here. The Browns accumulate some additional picks, and the Bucs get their QB of the future in Johnny Manziel.

5. Oakland Raiders: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

The Oakland Raiders have holes everywhere. They are particularly weak at defensive tackle, where Donald would be a major upgrade. This is one of the hardest workers in the draft and will have an instant impact in Dennis Allen’s unit.

6. Atlanta Falcons: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

The Falcons take the ultra-athletic tackle here to protect the blind side of their franchise quarterback. If Atlanta stays put with this pick, taking an OT seems a no-brainer.

7. Cleveland Browns (f/TB): Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

The Browns get another big pass catcher to pair with Josh Gordon and some of their other intriguing offensive weapons.

8. New York Giants (f/MIN): Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

**TRADE**

The Giants trade a day two pick and another later round pick to swap spots with the Vikes in the first round.

Here they select Taylor Lewan, the second tackle off the board despite Mel Kiper Jr.’s assertion that he could and/or will be a top six pick. This seems like a good spot for the Giants to jump up and get him.

9. Buffalo Bills: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

The Bills take advantage of the fall of Matthews, who can play right or left tackle to start his career but ultimately has the potential to end up as a top level blind side protector in the league.

10. Detroit Lions: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA

The Lions could go a number of directions here, but pegging Barr in this slot seems to make a ton of sense. He has great potential at the next level and could be a major defensive weapon for them.

11. Tennessee Titans: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

The Titans make a bit of a shocker pick, going with the signal caller from UCF who has drawn comparisons to Ben Roethlisberger, whom new Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt obviously has some significant experience with.

12. Minnesota Vikings (f/NYG): Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama 

The Vikings are in a good spot here with some of the best defenders still on the board. They take Clinton-Dix, a guy who can pair with Harrison Smith on the back end and get some additional picks along the way.

13. St. Louis Rams: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

The Rams make Fuller the first corner selected in this draft and surprise a few people by going defense with their first two picks. They could opt for an offensive tackle with one of the picks but getting the top two players at LB and CB is an enticing option for St. Louis to jump at.

14. Chicago Bears: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois

Jimmie Ward has been compared to Kenny Vaccaro, and Chicago’s current situation at safety is an embarrassment. With this pick, Ward would immediately become a fan favorite.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

The Steelers take what many consider to be the top corner in the draft and get a heck of a return man in the process.

16. Dallas Cowboys: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

Dallas upgrades its front four with the athletic Hageman, who may have more upside than any defensive tackle in the draft.

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

Baltimore locks down their right tackle spot with Martin, one of the hottest names in this year’s group of players.

18. New York Jets: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

The Jets have a tough call here between Beckham and Eric Ebron, but they opt for the electrifying playmaking skills of Beckham, who has a chance to be a top 12 pick when all is said and done.

19. Miami Dolphins: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

The Dolphins have Charles Clay, but Ebron shouldn’t fall this far so they cash in and get an incredibly athletic TE that can split out and create mismatches.

20. Arizona Cardinals: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The Cardinals are serious about taking a QB early, and here they put their money where their mouth is. Carr has a very strong arm and would be a great developmental guy for this team to work with.

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

The Packers address a need and take the best player available in C.J. Mosley, a hard-nosed linebacker who can play all three downs.

22. San Diego Chargers (f/PHI): Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State 

**TRADE**

The Chargers swap spots with Philly in the first round, throwing a mid-round pick their way for the rights to draft Dennard and fill their biggest need defensively, arguably.

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

The Chiefs didn’t expect Pryor to be here, so they take the hard-hitting strong safety to pair with Eric Berry on the back end.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

The Bengals take the extremely athletic, hard-working Shazier to line up all over the formation and wreak havoc in the backfield.

25. Philadelphia Eagles (f/SD): Marqise Lee, WR, USC

Philly picks up an extra selection, maybe two, and still gets one of the best receivers in the draft in Marqise Lee, who would be an instant contributor for Chip Kelly’s offense.

26. Cleveland Browns (f/IND): Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

This would be considered a major win if you are the Browns, in my opinion. Getting Mike Evans in a trade down, and then cashing in with the falling Bridgewater late in the first seems like the ideal situation for Cleveland.

27. Houston Texans (f/NO): Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh 

**TRADE**

Houston swaps their 2nd rounder and sends a third rounder to the Saints for the right to draft Tom Savage, their QB of the future. This is a risky move but Bill O’Brien puts his eggs in this basket and will have some time to work with one of the hottest prospects leading up to draft weekend.

28. Carolina Panthers: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

The Panthers need to fill some holes on their offensive line, and getting Moses here is a great way to rebuild the tackle position on their offensive line.

29. New England Patriots: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame

Nix’s fall is the Patriots’ gain. This team got some decent play out of their young guys when Vince Wilfork went down last season, but it’s time to start grooming his eventual replacement as the penetrating giant up front.

30. San Francisco 49ers: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

The Niners take a bit of a risk on Roby with this selection, but they have done so in the past with some questionable character guys. This is a guy who should start right away for them.

31. Denver Broncos: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU

Verrett would be a fantastic addition to the Denver secondary, joining the likes of Aqib Talib, Chris Harris, and Kayvon Webster at the CB position to give Denver a really solid group of playmakers to create more turnovers.

32. Seattle Seahawks: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

The Seahawks get a big, powerful tackle who can fill their void at the right tackle position.

    So the TB bucs give up picks, and Jax passes on a QB for a WR, and the Browns really want a WR too???????? From what the GM just said for TB, they want to trade Down, not sure how you got up outta that? Smokescreen?

    • SayreBedinger

      I could see TB doing anything at this point. I wouldn’t rule out a trade down but it’s hard to believe a lot of what you hear at this time.

  • Johnny

    Wow!!! So Miami had the choice between ILB CJ Mosley AND TE Ebron.. And went with Ebron??? That’s a tough choice…. IDK…

    (Other ?, QB Savage shows up the the 1st round? And TB trades UP for Manziel?, TB has a crop of QBs already and might not even have to trade up, afraid Oakland will take him??)

    But:::: as for my Dolphins:::

    ILB Mosley OR TE Ebron ???
    (Don’t know how both dropped to #19)

    That’s a tough one, but I got to go with LB Mosley, he’s polished NFL Ready, and top at his position.. (So is Ebron)..
    But, in reality?? I don’t think there is a chance that TE Ebron drops all the way down to #19… Probably even Mosley won’t make it to #19..

    Eitherway.. A very interesting Mock bro.

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks! This would be a great scenario I went with Ebron because I think the Dolphins could really use another offensive weapon with size. He’s got the ability to be a star.

      • John

        He won’t be a star. I’m just telling you. No hard feelings. He just isn’t that good.

    • John

      That would be a dumb ass move to take Ebron. There are NO good TEs in this draft. The only reason you hear of this guy is because he is the better of a bad class for TEs this year.

      • Johnny

        I like Austin S-J at TE.. (If he makes it to 50)..He’s bigger 6’6 263… Just ran a 4.56 at Jets facility… Athletic.. And a basketball player like Jimmy Graham was.. We need that big target for THil… You put ASJ with Clay, now your talking..

  • disqus_57pX4h0tnv

    The chargers will take Cookie Gilchrest in the first round shocking everyone, especially cookie.

    The raiders will trade up and try and draft Jim Otto, only to realize he doesn’t play QB. They will quickly trade him for George Blanda.

    Kansas City will most likely try and replace Len Dawson by trading Alex Smith for Brett Favre.

    • Nick Mansoor

      Shut up

      • disqus_57pX4h0tnv

        Shaddup or “shut up”.. How’d ya know???

        Mocks are silly-so don’t take it or yourself so seriously.

        • Nick Mansoor

          drafts are a complete crap shoot, I enjoy seeing mocks but damn bro, use real names lmao

          • disqus_57pX4h0tnv

            They are real names from NFL days long since past. But they are just as reasonable guesses as this last mock.

            So you could say I was mocking this mock. So it’s ok if you mock my mock of this mock.

          • Nick Mansoor

            i meant from this year, i realize they are old timers haha

  • David

    Dallas will not be taking Hageman or any other 1 tech at 16..And Ward over Pryor????

    • SayreBedinger

      I KNOW RIGHT?!

  • pbg619

    Just a very bad mock draft

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks pbg619 I’d like to see yours anytime shoot me an email.

  • Rick Talley

    Still see Rams trading down, but adding Mack and Fuller to their defense makes me salivate!

  • Alter Ego

    Hell yeah…let the trade by SD come true…love it!

  • Zach Barker

    I will agree with some others about Ward over Pryor but overall, makes for an interesting mock. Not sure Panthers pass on Cooks if he’s still there at 28 over Moses, but they could shock everybody and take XSF at guard too. Gonna be a fun draft to watch!!

  • octavia a henry

    Why would the saints take themselves out if the first round that would be a dumb move.

    • SayreBedinger

      To gain extra picks. Easy.

      • octavia a henry

        So you are telling me the saints will give up the 27 pick and that Houston and saints swap second rounds and Houston would send them a third round too. Not a bad move. I gotcha!

  • Paul Newbold

    sorry guy …you blew this draft….back to the board with you…..ridiculous scenarios…I’m quite certain it was only to get a reaction from fans however :)

    • SayreBedinger

      Haha thanks for the comment Paul, send me a mock anytime and I’ll post it so you can respond to all the hilarious comments, such as the one you just left!

      • Paul Newbold

        Hey, I thought maybe it was a slow day and you could use a laugh :)

  • Jon feigenbaum

    NO WAY the Bears pick Jimmy Ward in round 1-he’s NOT a first rounder for starters. I predict if C.J. Mosley is there at 14, they grab him. If not, one og the blue chip DL’s WILL still be there, and they will take the one they’re highest on. IF HA-HA Clinton Dix is still there, he could be a possible pick.

    • SayreBedinger

      WOW, NO WAY?! I DIDN”T KNOW YOU ALREADY SAW’D THE DRAFT.

  • Travis Crouch

    All the trades in the top ten have the teams just giving day two picks I have hardy seen that happen

    • SayreBedinger

      That’s fair who do you see giving up more than that?

  • baronmwd

    Hageman to Dallas at 16 is a huge strech. Hageman should be a Day 2 guy. With the players you have off the board Dallas should first try to trade back or if there staying at 16 they should grab Martin.

    • Howard Willis

      I agree, terrible mock

      • SayreBedinger

        Thanks Howard! I appreciate you logging in/signing up for a Disqus account so you could write that sentence and brighten my day!

  • Gregory Martin

    Tthe Bucs are not going to trade up for Manziel, end of story, because he is not a sure thing franchise quarterback. If he’s there at seven, then maybe they take him. However, I could see them trading up in order to take Sammy Watkins.

    • SayreBedinger

      Do you know for a fact the Bucs believe that?

  • OGsnakes1322

    Man we need that BIG NT. Everything else will fall in place!!!!!!

  • Dewight Marice Mitchell

    bad mock draft

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks Dewight! Appreciate it! If it were good, it would surely be wrong because the draft never goes as expected, nor do fans love every pick.

  • PANTTERA

    Don’t want Watkins or Manziel in NFC South. Facing breeze,newton,manziel 6 times a season sounds HORRIBLE.

  • 619chargers4life

    Truth be told , the chargers may not even go corner in the first round. Add Steve Williams to the mix and we have a crowded CB room already . With that said , there is no way the Chargers are going to trade up and lose another draft pick when our needs at NT OLB WR OG CB are up there on the list .

    • powderBLUE801

      Agree. Why would we trade up a few spots and lose two draft picks?? TT is not that dumb my man!! This is a bad mock bud!!

      • 619chargers4life

        Hella bad mock lol

      • SayreBedinger

        You’re right. Chargers could definitely use the extra picks. Noted.

        • John

          They need more picks

          • 619chargers4life

            You should give us some lol

    • SayreBedinger

      I can see the Chargers not trading up but Dennard is a top 15 player IMO and would be worth it for a team whose CBs suck badly.

  • Joe

    Were you drunk when you did this mock draft?

    • SayreBedinger

      Nope never had a drop! But nice attempt at being funny!

  • Howard Willis

    would rather have Martin tehre instead of Hegeman

  • Mark Gretz

    No movement from the niners, WHAT! That’s not going to work IMHO. If they dont move down, I mean Waaaay down for Evans, then i suggest we get on the phone and start pitchin trade possibilites with the Titans. Then we get DD. if that is not possible then we should trade out of the first round and pick up a couple of extra picks . (Boy we sure need those)

    • SayreBedinger

      I definitely think the Niners could move up. Just another of many scenarios.

  • Buddy guy

    This is probably the worst mock draft I have seen, and there have been some really bad ones!!

    • SayreBedinger

      Interesting comment, Buddy guy!

      • Buddy guy

        No offense, I just thought it was more of a joke than a mock draft

        • SayreBedinger

          You’re on to me! I hoped it would be hilarious luckily I came through.

        • Ross

          You should go read Ben Natan’s from like 2 weeks ago. It’s good for a laugh. It’s a fill 3 round one. That was the worst I have ever seen in any draft ever. Not to say this one is great though.

  • randal shacklett

    I don’t know, not bad for the Rams, I wouldn’t cry. Moving down the board and drafting a dominant offensive line is my hope/wish/dream, however.

  • Nevin Paustian

    Rumors have said that the patriots want to move up to get a top tier WR. With there being a few teams between GB and the pats that need WR’s along with the pats and packers history of draft day trades, i wonder if they will swap first round picks. GB seems to like Max Bullough, a 4th or 5th round MLB out of Michigan State, so I could see them passing on Mosley in order to acquire more picks.

  • John

    I don’t want Bradley Roby. 49ers can do better than that.

  • Charger2139

    Man id love for this to happen! Great mock draft!

  • brian199511

    The Vikings trade back and take a safety at 12 when a better one can be had later? Ridiculous concept. They should take either the best LB or QB at 12 and load up on other positions later. Bucannon is a SS who is really better than Ha Ha. I’d go with Carr then go after defense.
