Re: NFL.com Mock Drafts 2014
Bucky Brooks Mock
JADEVEON CLOWNEY DE SOUTH CAROLINA
Bill O'Brien bypasses the chance to take a quarterback to pair Clowney with J.J. Watt to create a formidable frontline.
GREG ROBINSON OT AUBURN
Jake Long's injury prompts Jeff Fisher to secure a franchise tackle to protect Sam Bradford.
TEDDY BRIDGEWATER QB LOUISVILLE
General manager David Caldwell tabs Bridgewater to be the new face of the franchise.
JOHNNY MANZIEL QB TEXAS A&M
Johnny Football would energize an organization desperate for a legitimate franchise quarterback.
BLAKE BORTLES QB CENTRAL FLORIDA
Bortles is not a finished product, but the Raiders could view him as an upgrade over Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin.
ANTHONY BARR OLB UCLA
Barr could give the Dirty Birds a pass-rushing presence that was absent in 2013 after the departure of John Abraham.
JAKE MATTHEWS OT TEXAS A&M
Lovie Smith would like to find a pass rusher to solidify the defense, but Matthews would complete a physically imposing offensive line.
KHALIL MACK OLB BUFFALO
The Vikings defense needs an infusion of youth and athleticism along the frontline. Mack fits the bill as a versatile linebacker capable of rushing the passer or dropping into coverage.
ERIC EBRON TE NORTH CAROLINA
General manager Doug Whaley will look to add an explosive weapon in the middle of the field to help foster the growth of E.J. Manuel.
JUSTIN GILBERT CB OKLAHOMA ST.
he secondary has been the weakest link of the Lions defense for years. Gilbert will not only upgrade the back end, but he would become a star playing behind a ferocious frontline that creates persistent pressure on the passer.
HA HA CLINTON-DIX S ALABAMA
It's time for the Titans to had a playmaker in the middle of the field. Clinton-Dix is capable of thumping runners in the hole, while also floating over the top to eliminate the deep ball.
TAYLOR LEWAN OT MICHIGAN
General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin will look to add a skilled big body to an offensive line desperate for a franchise player on the edge.
RYAN SHAZIER OLB OHIO ST.
The Rams could add an explosive defender to a dominant frontline that features a host of young, athletic disruptors.
TIMMY JERNIGAN DT FLORIDA ST.
The lack of a dominant 3-technique rendered the Bears defense helpless against the run. Jernigan fills that void and gives the unit an energy player along the frontline.
DARQUEZE DENNARD CB MICHIGAN ST.
As a former defensive back coach, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin recognizes the need to add a standout corner to an aging secondary.
SAMMY WATKINS WR CLEMSON
A big-bodied receiver could be in play, and it would be hard for general manager Ozzie Newsome to bypass the top receiver in the draft at this point.
KONY EALY DE MISSOURI
Jerry Jones has been known to gamble on a player with significant upside. Ealy is as talented as they come, but his production doesn't match his athleticism at this point.
MARQISE LEE WR USC
Several receivers enjoyed better 2013 seasons, but the memory of Lee dominating the Pac-12 for two full seasons could prompt the Jets to pull the trigger on the explosive playmaker.
ZACK MARTIN OT NOTRE DAME
The Dolphins' offensive line struggled well before the Jonathan Martin incident, so identifying a solid offensive tackle is a top priority. Factor in Martin's ability to play inside or outside, he could be the ideal pick in Joe Philbin's mind.
AUSTIN SEFERIAN-JENKINS TE WASHINGTON
The Cardinals need a legitimate threat in the middle of the field to take the passing game to the next level. Seferian-Jenkins is a big-bodied pass catcher in the mold of Rob Gronkowski.
LOUIS NIX III DT NOTRE DAME
A safety could be in play at this pick, but a stout anchor in the middle would alleviate the pressure on the linebackers in the running game.
CALVIN PRYOR FS LOUISVILLE
The Eagles' secondary hasn't been right since the departure of Brian Dawkins. Pryor is a firecracker with the skills to shine as a run or pass defender in the Eagles' scheme.
ODELL BECKHAM WR LSU
Beckham's explosive running skills makes him a terrific fit in Andy Reid's version of the West Coast offense.
C.J. MOSLEY OLB ALABAMA
Marvin Lewis could look to add a three-down linebacker with versatile skills to young, athletic defense.
BRADLEY ROBY CB OHIO ST.
Roby would bring much-needed athleticism and playmaking ability to a Chargers secondary that struggled in pass coverage in 2013.
MIKE EVANS WR TEXAS A&M
Why not add Johnny Football's favorite target to the mix to alleviate the pressure on Josh Gordon on the perimeter? Evans would not only alter coverage, but he would give Manziel a jump-ball specialist to lean on in the red zone.
JASON VERRETT CB TCU
Rob Ryan dramatically improved the Saints defense with his exotic blitz schemes. Verrett would encourage more man coverage with his versatility and skill.
BRANDIN COOKS WR OREGON ST.
Cam Newton would love the opportunity to throw to a Steve Smith clone on the perimeter. Cooks might be the best "catch and run" playmaker in the draft.
STEPHON TUITT DE NOTRE DAME
Bill Belichick could view Tuitt as a Richard Seymour clone capable of wreaking havoc in the Patriots' hybrid defensive scheme.
RA'SHEDE HAGEMAN DT MINNESOTA
Hageman is the kind of athlete capable of blossoming in the 49ers' program. Far from a finished product, Hageman has the size, speed and athleticism to be a dominant player on the interior.
TRAVIS SWANSON C ARKANSAS
If Peyton Manning returns for 2014, it is imperative to add a solid body on the interior to fortify the middle.
KELVIN BENJAMIN WR FLORIDA ST.
The Seahawks are lacking a big receiver on the outside capable of wreaking havoc in the red zone. Benjamin is a Calvin Johnson-like playmaker with the size, speed and athleticism to succeed on the NFL.
