Who doesn’t love a good bargain? In the 2014 NFL Draft, every team was able to come away with what I consider to be at least one great value. That doesn’t mean they necessarily cashed in on the fall of someone in the first or second round like the Vikings and Teddy Bridgewater. I’m talking deeper in the draft. These are the picks that teams made in the mid-late rounds of the draft that can not only round out their roster but provide them with a guy that can make contributions early on. Here are the top value picks from this year’s draft in the NFC South.
Very physically gifted athlete who is a former #1 high school recruit that went a little bit lower in the draft due to some inconsistency but he has a ton of potential and can be a really nice pass rusher in the NFL if he dedicates himself. In Rob Ryan’s defense, I think that’s possible. He can be moved around the formation and create problems for opposing quarterbacks. This was a really solid fifth round pick with a lot of upside as he grows into his game.
