View Full Version : Underclassmen declaring for 2014 NFL Draft

Ole Miss junior WR Dontre Moncrief will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.
Pauline cites multiple sources that have told him as much. "Moncrief himself thinks he is going to rather early... I think he is more of a second day guy," Pauline said on his podcast. The non-seniors will really bring a lot of talent to this position during the draft process. It hasn't been a great year form Moncrief production-wise, but his talent did not disappear into thin air.

Draft insider Tony Pauline is hearing "more and more" that Fresno State redshirt sophomore WR Davante Adams will declare for May's draft.
Pauline could not say enough good things about Adams and how impressive he has been this season. It helps to play in a pass happy offense, but Adams' role was one reason why Jalen Saunders left for Oklahoma. This receiver class could be quite strong at the top.

Meant to post this earleir but slipped my mind.:

"One of those future pro’s is Cedric Ogbuehi, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound right tackle who has flawlessly taken Matthews spot who took over Joeckel’s.

In a recent interview with A&M’s 12th Man Magazine, the junior said despite his bright NFL future he plans to stay at A&M for his senior season.

“I plan to come back next season and make the move to left tackle for my senior year,” Ogbuehi said. “That’s my future position, so I want to do like Jake did and come back and play left tackle. I’d love to be a part of something like what Luke did and what Jake has a chance to do.

"On Monday, the standout junior said he would "consider his options" where the NFL draft is concerned, according to Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio News Express. According to transcription from texags.com, Ogbuehi also said he is waiting to consider the possibility at the proper time.

Top of second but I am thinking why not get perfect right tackle in 4th? Ogbuehi like Matthews and maybe Antonio Richardson can play both sides but use those picks for other positions. I want to turn this team around sooner rather than later so picking for position rather than BPA.

Where we are picking this year ... We should get 3 impact players and 3 starters out the gate!

I really really like Jace Amaro, TE, TTU
His hands and route running are very impressive with his size. Plus speed and average blocking too complement what he has in the receiving element. He can be a good pro!

yeah I'm starting to think the same strategy for RT. either you blow it out of the water and take a guy who can move across to LT in the future. or you find a player who is more then capable RT and keep him there but he comes later in the draft. I'm leaning towards the latter as well. i have my eyes set on ILB, CB, NT, QB, TE in the first 2-3 rounds and grabbing the BPA at those positions.

he could be an outstanding pro. he potential is in line with graham and gronk. his becoming an elite blocker and has soooo much speed and good hands. his size isn't on the same level of the other 2 but he still creates outrageous mismatches

Nothing official yet, but Jeremy Hill and Terrance McGee, both LSU running backs, could declare for the draft. McGee is a great change of pace guy and works in the receiving game. Hill is good at everything and can break a long run out of nowhere.

I don't think there's anything wrong in him requesting the grade, especially if it's lower than he'd like and would use it as motivation. You have to remember that Mettenberger had his injury after Mariota declared that he'd be staying a year, so that might factor into it.

What I mean is, I'm surprised he announced he was going back to school before he knew what his grade was. I have no problem with him wanting to know. That's a pretty big part of the decision.

I'm pretty confident that his grade won't be as high as he hopes, so he ends up back at Oregon anyway.

Not really sure why he's jumping early although I assume his HC getting fired has something to do with it. Had a shot to come back for his senior year and, with Carr and Fales gone, be the torch bearer for the Mountain West.

Not to mention, his play style is reminiscent of Manziel. He tends to bail from the pocket early, throw on the move, and force passes that shouldn't be thrown. He would be better served to return for another year and work on his pocket passing ability.

I think his coach getting fired may very well be the main reason. I am surprised he is leaving early for the same reasons you are.

He is very similar to Manziel, IMO. Not quite the athlete, but two inches taller and a slightly better passer. What I like most about him is that he has relied less on his feet and more on his arm each year. I also like that he has the closest skill set to Manziel in this draft but can be had way later. I would much rather take a risk on him in the 3rd or 4th than Manziel in the 1st.

I saw an article today that basically said he made his decision on a whim. Didn't put his name into draft evaluation and has no clue where he's getting drafted. Just decided to "go for it". He said it has nothing to do with the new coach, but his actions say otherwise.

If that's true then he either thinks he's going higher than he probably really is or he just wants out of Wyoming.

He said he just wants to be an NFL QB. That's his dream. I guess nobody informed him that he could go back for his senior year, get drafted higher, and still be one. He said he'll be happy just to make an NFL roster as a QB. No ambition to start or be great, just make it. That's admirable to reach his dream, but I want my QB to have a little more ambition than to "just make it".

He said he just wants to be an NFL QB. That's his dream. I guess nobody informed him that he could go back for his senior year, get drafted higher, and still be one. He said he'll be happy just to make an NFL roster as a QB. No ambition to start or be great, just make it. That's admirable to reach his dream, but I want my QB to have a little more ambition than to "just make it".

That's a fair point.

What are your thoughts on Amaro? I think the dude looks like a beast and has great hands, but besides Crabtree and Amendola I've been wrong on basically every TT product, but even Amendola didn't get drafted so I was still wrong there.

I know he's been arrested, but I think it was for something like using a fake/stolen Credit Card to get drunk, which I imagine money solves those kinds of problems.

IMHO Amaro's on field production is worthy of 1st RD consideration. My #1 TE is Sefarian-Jenkins. My wish is for Ebron and Amaro to go in Rd1 and if by chance and I think it's a good chance that Aaron Donald goes before pick #33, Sefarian-Jenkins would be my B. Choice for the #33 pick.

Arizona junior RB Ka'Deem Carey is leaning toward entering the 2014 NFL Draft, reports Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports.

Getlin passes along that Carey has received a second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. If he indeed declares, the 5-foot-10, 207-pounder will have finished his collegiate career with 16 consecutive 100 yard games. Carey told reporters last month that he'd probably declare for the draft if he receives a first- or second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. The junior is shiftier than a cheap lawyer and has drawn comparisons to Bengals rookie Gio Bernard and Eagles star Shady McCoy.

Oh wow, if he entered the draft, I sure would be interested in Mariota at 1-1...

I think he would be a very good pick and very well may end up being the better pro than Teddy but I don't think the FO would pick him ahead of Bridgewater because the want to win now. IMO Bridgewater is the one guy who has the greatest possibility of starting from day one.

Here is the most informative article I have read about Bridgewater and why I think he will end up being the pick.

I've been a big fan of his for 2 years now. Not a 3-down guy, but electric speed and great out of the backfield. Could be a Vereen type RB in O'Brien's offense. He actually reminds me of Vereen a little bit, but didn't post near that level of production in college.
