2014 NFL Mock Draft: Howard Ticker
Make Trades, Organize Your Own Big Board with On the Clock: Premium You be the G.M. and build your draft!
1)Houston Texans: Khalil Mack, DE, Buffalo
Today there were reports that the Texans prefer Mack to Clowney. I see the Texans getting Mack but finding a way to trade back a few picks to get him. I can see them getting a QB in the 2nd round.
2) St. Louis Rams (from the Washington Redskins): Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
The Rams can use a big tackle so I have them going Robinson here.
3)Jacksonville Jaguars: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF
I like the Jags going fairly local here and drafting Bortles for their franchise QB.
4)Cleveland Browns: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The Browns need targets to whatever QB they bring in and Watkins is the best weapon in this draft. Watkins and Gordon would be difficult to stop.
5) Oakland Raiders: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Raiders need a franchise QB and I think Johnny can help turn this franchise around.
6)Atlanta Falcons: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
The Falcons are a team that really needs help with the pass rush. This would be a huge get for them.
7)Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Offensive line is a big need for the Bucs so I have them going with one of the best tackles in the draft here.
8)Minnesota Vikings: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
The Vikings resigned Cassel but I think drafting Bridgewater can bring in a lot of excitement to the offense with AP.
9) Buffalo Bills: Jake Matthews. OT, Texas A&M
Matthews is a great tackle that can immediately come in and help project Manuel. Wide out if also an option here.
10)Detroit Lions: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA
The Lions addressed their need for a wide receiver in free agency. I had them going with the top corner here but they can use a great linebacker like Barr here.
11)Tennessee Titans: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Titans have a bunch of different needs but I have them going with one of the best defensive players left on the board and that is Gilbert. They need secondary help.
12) New York Giants: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC
The Giants good use another dynamic weapon to help Eli on offense and Ebron is just that. Offensive line and secondary help is also a potential move here.
13) St. Louis Rams: HaHa Clinton-Dix, Safety, Alabama
The Rams need a safety and Clinton-Dix is the best one in this draft. Wide receiver is also a possibility but I think they will address that in the 2nd round.
14) Chicago Bears: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St.
The Bears will need cornerback help this offseason. This will be a great pick up for the Bears here.
15) Pittsburgh Steelers: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Steelers could definitely use a young tackle and Lewan is the next best one available. Tight end or wide receiver is also an option here.
16)Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
Cowboys could use some help on the defensive line and I love this move for them.
17)Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
I had the Ravens going wide receiver for a while but I put that on hold due to the Steve Smith signing. Pryor addressed a need for them.
18) New York Jets: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
Geno Smith had almost zero help on offense this year so this would be a huge need pick for them.
19) Miami Dolphins: Zack Martin, G/OT, Notre Dame
I have been having the Dolphins go defensive tackle a while now but they really need offensive line help if they want Tannehill to get better. They are set a LT and C, Martin can come in an start at guard.
20)Arizona Cardinals: Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU
The Cardinals need defensive line help so this is a good pick up for them.
21)Green Bay Packers: Jace Amaro Jr., TE, Texas Tech
The Packers need to replace Finley. This would add just another great weapon to an already solid receiving core.
22)Philadelphia Eagles: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.
The Eagles need to replace Jackson so I have them going Cooks. If not, I have them going corner.
23)Kansas City Chiefs: C.J Mosely, ILB, Alabama
Chiefs could go wide out but they also need a middle linebacker. I like Mosley here.
24) Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Bengals need to add youth to their secondary so I like this move for them. Defensive end is also a possibility with their current free agent situation.
25)San Diego Chargers: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
The Chargers need some defensive tackle help and I think Hageman is a good fit here. Cornerback back is also a possibility here.
26) Cleveland Browns (from the Colts): Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St
I had the Browns going WR earlier. I am not a huge Carr fan but having Watkins and Gordon would be huge for him and he does not have to immediately come in and start anyway.
27) New Orleans Saints: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT, Notre Dame
This would be a huge addition to this Saints defense because Tuitt is versatile and they need help as defensive end and defensive tackle.
28) Carolina Panthers: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Cam Newton can use someone to throw to now that Steve Smith, LaFell, and Ginn are gone. Lee is similar to Smith so I like this move here.
29)New England Patriots: Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
Patriots really need a tight end and Sefarian-Jenkins would be a good fit here.
30)San Francisco 49ers: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
The Niners need to get younger in the secondary and this would be a great move.
31)Denver Broncos: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St
The Broncos need to add some youth to their corner backs so I like this move. Defensive end or offensive tackle is also a possibility.
32)Seattle Seahawks: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU
The Seahawks could use a big target so I love this move for their offense.
