    Pat Kirwan's First Mock of 2014 (I think)

    2014 NFL Mock Drafts
    By Pat Kirwan National NFL Insider

    NFL Mock Draft - 02/14/2014

    1. Houston Texans (2-14):
    Blake Bortles, QB, UCF: Of the top three quarterbacks in the draft, Bortles looks like the kind of guy O?Brien has coached in the past. A big, strong-armed player that the new coach can mold into a Ben Roethlisberger type.

    2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington) (7-9)
    Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M: A 10-year starter and the son of one of Jeff Fisher's former players. He can play RT until Jake Long is done. Fisher's Tennessee teams always had great linemen.

    3. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-12)
    Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M: Manziel is just the spark the Jaguars need and their head coach saw the success his former team had with Russell Wilson?s run skill.

    4. Cleveland Browns (4-12)
    Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The top QB on some boards and a smooth player. Could be headed for a team in desperate need of a starter.

    5. Oakland Raiders (4-12)
    Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: Clowney could go higher than this, but too many teams need a quarterback up top and he didn't exactly light the world on fire last season.

    6. Atlanta Falcons (4-12)
    Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn: I just talked to a former NFL line coach that worked with Robinson for five weeks and feels he has a chance to be a great player. Some believe he passes Matthews before the draft.

    7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12)
    Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo: The Bucs only had 35 sacks last year and could use another pass rusher. Lovie Smith likes the quick athletic type and Mack fits the bill.

    8. Minnesota Vikings (5-10-1)
    Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA: Unless Jared Allen re-signs, the Vikings need another pass rusher. Some believe it will be risky taking a former fullback turned defender.

    9. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
    Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan: The Bills head coach is a former offensive line coach and he knows the Bills need better people up front. Lewan is sliding in the eyes of some, but Michigan has produced a lot of NFL linemen.

    10. Detroit Lions (7-9)
    Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson: Nate Burleson has been released and putting the best receiver in the draft opposite Calvin Johnson gives the Lions a very dangerous duo.

    11. Tennessee Titans (7-9)
    C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama: Mosley is the best linebacker in the draft and can be a run and hit player in any scheme. He is capable of calling the defense.

    12. New York Giants (7-9)
    Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame: If the Giants get Linval Joseph re-signed, the Giants could go in a different direction. But if they don't, this wide body is a solid fit.

    13. St. Louis Rams (7-9)
    Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State: Jeff Fisher likes corners in the early rounds and Cortland Finnegan is close to done.

    14. Chicago Bears (8-8)
    Hasean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama: The Bears need to replace S Chris Conte, and Major Wright may not be back after free agency. Look what Earl Thomas does for the Seahawks.

    15. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)
    Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri: The Steelers could go in many directions but everything starts up front, and the 6-foot-5 Ealy fits their profile for a defensive lineman. It?s time the Steelers get more pass rush from their front three.

    16. Baltimore Ravens (8-8)
    Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M: The Ravens have a big-armed QB and one receiving threat. They need a big receiver opposite Torrey Smith.

    17. Dallas Cowboys (8-8)
    Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh: After watching Donald at the Senior Bowl and knowing what Rod Marinelli and Monte Kiffin want, this guy is the perfect fit.

    18. New York Jets (8-8)
    Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California: The Jets need two wide receivers from this draft if they are ever going to evaluate Geno Smith fairly. Lee is a game breaker, and the Jets will be lucky if he?s still on the board.

    19. Miami Dolphins (8-8)
    Zach Martin, OT, Notre Dame: Martin went to the Senior Bowl and proved he can play left tackle as a rookie. Drafting a LT with the same last name as Jonathan Martin should not stop them from this choice.

    20. Arizona Cardinals (10-6)
    Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State: Carr is the last of the first-round quarterbacks, and Arizona needs to start thinking about the future. No rush to get him on the field with the way Carson Palmer is playing. I could see the Cardinals selling this spot to someone who needs a QB more or taking an offensive tackle.

    21. Green Bay Packers (8-7-1)
    Ra'shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota: The Packers have a number of defensive linemen scheduled for free agency and they want to be more versatile on defense. Hageman solves both problems if GB gets him to play hard all the time.

    22. Philadelphia Eagles (10-6)
    Calvin Pryor, FS, Louisville: Like the Bears a few picks up, the Eagles have safety issues and Pryor could be a starter from Day 1. Philly may look at a pass rusher here like Dee Ford but the grade may push them toward the safety.

    23. Kansas City Chiefs (11-5)
    Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina: Some believe Ebron will go higher in the draft but he is raw and that may push him down in the first round. The Chiefs offense needs a solid tight end, and Alex Smith will get him up and running quickly.

    24. Cincinnati Bengals (11-5)
    Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State: Leon Hall isn?t getting any younger and how long can the Bengals go to Adam Jones when there is an injury?

    25. San Diego Chargers (9-7)
    Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young: Many think he belongs in the second round but his Senior Bowl performance changed the minds of a few defensive coaches. Van Noy is extremely versatile in coverage and as a pass rusher. He wouldn?t be the first guy to jump from the second to first round because of a trip to Mobile.

    26. Cleveland Browns (from Indianapolis) (4-12)
    Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama: The Browns already got their quarterback earlier in the round and now it?s time to protect him. Cyrus becomes the right side book end with Joe Thomas on the other side.

    27. New Orleans Saints (11-5)
    Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State: The Saints would do flips if Jernigan were still on the board at this point in the draft, and they would waste little time running up with the card for a defensive tackle with his kind of quickness.

    28. Carolina Panthers (12-4)
    Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee: Jordan Gross is 34 and a free agent. Even if he comes back the Panthers need a tackle for the long haul.

    29. New England Patriots (12-4)
    Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech: The Patriots want to be a hybrid tight end attack, and with Aaron Hernandez out of the picture and Rob Gronkowski often injured it is time for a big, athletic tight end.

    30. San Francisco ***** (12-4)
    Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida: The ***** may look at a WR here or even CB Jason Verrett. There?s plenty of depth at WR and for now Roberson wins the debate about corner.

    31. Denver Broncos (13-3)
    Dee Ford, DE, Auburn: Ford is an explosive pass rusher and would be productive opposite Von Miller in passing situations. The Broncos score early and often and find themselves defending teams playing catch-up. Ford would replace what the Broncos had when Elvis Dumervil rushed opposite Miller.

    32. Seattle Seahawks (13-3)
    Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame: This is a deep draft and the Seahawks would love it if Tuitt were still on the board. The reality is Seattle will get a very good player by just staying where they are. Tuitt is a step toward replacing Michael Bennett, who is a free agent looking for a big pay day.

    Interesting how he has the back half of the 1st going. Like the picks for the Rams though.

    That's different. IMO Dennard is a MUCH better CB prospect than Haha is a S prospect.

    I always wonder how good these Alabama players are on defense just because there are so many great ones around them. Is Ha-Ha really worthy of a 1st round pick or does he look much better than he is because he has 6 or 7 other NFL starters around him ?
