#33 – Jacksonville Jaguars – Cyril Richardson – G – Baylor

Teddy Bridgewater gets some protection and the Jacksonville Jaguars get a powerhouse run blocker with some versatility.

#34 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Justin Gilbert – CB – Oregon State

Greg Schiano likes man-to-man corners and Justin Gilbert has the physical and athletic prowess to become a stout compliment to Darrelle Revis.

#35 – Atlanta Falcons – Will Sutton – DT – Arizona

The defensive renovation can’t end with one round as the Atlanta Falcons continue reloading by taking the undersized but highly disruptive Will Sutton.

#36 – Houston Texans – Melvin Gordon – RB – Wisconsin

There is a lot of uncertainty around Arian Foster and Ben Tate in 2014, so the Houston Texans grab some insurance with Wisconsin star Melvin Gordon.

#37 – Minnesota Vikings – Zach Mettenberger – QB – LSU

Having collected Clowney early the Minnesota Vikings hope they can still get a potential franchise quarterback and make big-armed LSU standout Zach Mettenberger their choice.

#38 – Washington Redskins – Kyle Van Noy – OLB – BYU

Playmakers are needed everywhere on that Washington Redskins defense.  Kyle Van Noy is instinctive and displays a knack for dropping in coverage or tracking the ball.

#39 – Buffalo Bills – Jason Verrett – CB – TCU

The defense has got some good pieces in place but they still need more help in the secondary and Jason Verrett, despite size concerns is a bonfide ball hawk.

#40 – Cleveland Browns – Lamarcus Joyner – FS – Florida State

T.J. Ward has the strong safety spot locked down so the Cleveland Browns decide to put the aggressive Lamarcus Joyner next to him to fortify the back end of the secondary.

#41 – San Diego Chargers – Loucheiz Purifoy – CB – Florida  

Getting their pass rusher in the first round, the San Diego Chargers add help the defensive back.  Loucheiz Purifoy has all the physical tools to become a corner QBs will avoid.

#42 – New York Giants – Austin Seferian-Jenkins – TE – Washington

Eli Manning loves to use his tight ends but the New York Giants haven’t kept up their end.  They correct that mistake by giving him the monstrous, athletic Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

#43 – Oakland Raiders – Zack Martin – OL – Notre Dame

Matt McGloin or Terrelle Pryor?  Hard to say but either one could use better protection up front.  Zack Martin is experienced, smart and athletic enough to handle NFL pass rushers

#44 – St. Louis Rams – Tajh Boyd – QB – Clemson

The 2014 NFL mock draft gets another shakeup from the St. Louis Rams when they officially put Sam Bradford on notice by taking Clemson dual threat Tajh Boyd.

#45 – Baltimore Ravens – Morgan Breslin – OLB – USC

Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil are both over 30-years old.  Morgan Breslin is a gifted pass rusher out of USC and good insurance for the future of the Baltimore Ravens.

#46 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Kyle Fuller – CB – Virginia Tech

Dick LeBeau needs fresh bodies in his decrepit secondary.  Kyle Fuller is a football natural, with good size and a willingness to step up and play physical against anybody.

#47 – Tennessee Titans – Christian Jones – LB – Florida State

Arguably the most athletic linebacker in the draft, the Tennessee Titans hope Christian Jones can help bolster their inconsistent run defense and provide more impact plays.

#48 – Dallas Cowboys – Gabe Jackson – OG – Mississippi State

Opening up the run game and solidifying interior protection is a must.  Gabe Jackson is a punishing blocker, opening holes for runners and only getting better in protection.

#49 – Miami Dolphins – La’el Collins – OT – LSU

The offensive line overhaul continues.  La’el Collins projects as a guard but has played 2013 at tackle.  He is a downhill mauler in the run game.

#50 – New York Jets – Darqueze Dennard – CB – Michigan State

Rex Ryan can spot cornerbacks a mile away so he can’t possibly miss Darqueze Dennard.  Injuries aside, he has every tool in the book.  He thrives in press coverage.

#51 – Green Bay Packers – Paul Richardson – WR – Colorado

Ted Thompson loves to stockpile receivers and that trend continues.  Paul Richardson has good size and speed for the position and the production to prove he can excel against top competition.

#52 – Philadelphia Eagles – Ka’Deem Carey – RB – Arizona

Chip Kelly loves competition on his team, so he gives his running backs some by taking the highly versatile Ka’Deem Carey.  Good between the tackles and very good receiving out of the backfield.

#53 – San Francisco 49ers – Travis Swanson – C – Arkansas

Jonathan Goodwin is heading into his mid-30s.  The San Francisco 49ers live by dominant offensive line play.  Travis Swanson is a prototypical starting center with the intelligence and quickness to prove it.

#54 – Chicago Bears – Kony Ealy – DE – Missouri

Phil Emery lucks out here.  In need of more defensive line help, he gets Kony Ealy who fits perfectly with the Chicago Bears.  Explosive off the snap, he can create problems for an offense on the ground or launch off the line to get after the quarterback.

#55 – Arizona Cardinals – Lache Seastrunk – RB – Baylor

Carson Palmer seems to have mastery of the Arizona Cardinals passing attack, but he could really use more help on the ground moving forward.  Lache Seastrunk is home run threat out of Baylor with tremendous lower body strength.

#56 – Detroit Lions – Odell Beckham Jr. – WR – LSU

Calvin Johnson can’t carry the load forever.  The Detroit Lions need another receiver to take pressure off him.  Odell Beckham Jr. is an excellent target out of LSU, displaying good speed and the ability to find different ways of getting open.

#57 – Cincinnati Bengals – Aaron Donald – DT – Pitt

One thing the front office of the Cincinnati Bengals does well is find defensive tackles.  Aaron Donald isn’t a physical marvel to the position, but he is explosive, violent, relentless and creates havoc for offensive lines.

#58 – Indianapolis Colts – Brandin Cooks – WR – Oregon State

Andrew Luck is struggling without Reggie Wayne, which means the Indianapolis Colts have to get him more weapons.  What Brandin Cooks lacks in size he makes up for in game speed, agility and savvy route running.  He can be a nightmare in the right hands.

#59 – Carolina Panthers – Craig Loston – SS – LSU

Just because the defense is already good doesn’t mean the Carolina Panthers should stop trying to give in better depth and talent.  Craig Loston is a big, instinctive and fearless player who has the explosion to create impact plays in the open field.

#60 – New England Patriots – James Hurst – OT – North Carolina

Protecting Tom Brady remains a priority.  The loss of Sebastian Vollmer has hurt.  So the New England Patriots bolster their front with James Hurst.  Despite some technique issues, he is a physical specimen who can develop to play either tackle spot.

#61 – New Orleans Saints – Jimmy Garoppolo – QB – Eastern Illinois

Drew Brees turns 35 next year.  The New Orleans Saints know time is short.  Sean Payton decides in this 2014 NFL mock draft to get his project for the future.  Jimmy Garoppolo is decisive, accurate and has a lightning quick release.

#62 – Denver Broncos – Seantrel Henderson – OT – Miami

Inconsistent offensive line play is a reason Peyton Manning is banged up this season.  The Denver Broncos must continue to bolster their depth.  Seantrel Henderson isn’t an immediate starter, but his sheer physical dimensions and skill grant him huge upside.

#63 – San Francisco 49ers (from KC) – Donte Moncrief – WR – Ole Miss

One dynamic receiver isn’t enough, the San Francisco 49ers decide to go and get another.  Donte Moncrief is somewhat overlooked but there is no question he has the size, speed and advanced route running to become an instant problem for corners in the pros.

#64 – Seattle Seahawks – DaQuan Jones – DT – Penn State

Peter Carroll loves to stockpile defensive linemen  Tackle is an area they could use depth.  DaQuan Jones has the physical dimensions of a monster but needs work on his conditioning and technique.  The Seattle Seahawks will take care of that.
