Re: TexansTalk Top 10: 2014 Draft
On talent alone.....
1. Jadeveon Clowney - DE, South Carolina
- I'm not a big fan of Clowney, but he's obviously the most physically gifted player in the draft. Whether he has the drive or work ethic to turn that into next level success is unknown.
2. C.J. Mosley - ILB, Alabama
- Most well rounded player in the draft. Has all the physical tools in every area and a great mental understanding of the game. He's better than DeMeco, IMO.
3. Anthony Barr - OLB, UCLA
- Unreal physical gifts. Has the prototypical skill set you look for in a 3-4 OLB.
4. Mike Evans - WR, Texas A&M
- The best offensive player in college football, IMO. Big bodied WR that reminds me a bit of Jimmy Graham. Not a TE though.
5. Jake Matthews - OT, Texas A&M
- The best balance of talent and technical proficiency in this O-Line class.
6. Teddy Bridgewater - QB, Louisville
- Easily the most technically developed QB in this class out of the top group. Better physical tools than other developed guys in the 2nd group like Murray and McCarron.
7. Khalil Mack - OLB, Buffalo
- Great instincts combined with great physical ability. Reminds me of Von Miller.
8. Sammy Watkins - WR, Clemson
- Ridiculous physical skills. Still very raw as a WR, IMO.
9. Louis Nix - DT, Notre Dame
- Very gifted inside player that can play against the run and also rush the passer.
10. Cyrus Kouandijo - OT, Alabama
- Most physically talented O-Lineman in the draft, but is still somewhat raw technically.
