Default Re: CBS Sports 2014 Mocks -- Dane Brugler/Rob Rang

Rob Rang 4/21 w/trades
Quote:
1. HOUSTON TEXANS

(2-14) Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina: Every franchise picking No. 1 overall is hoping that an Andrew Luck-like can't miss quarterback is available to them. Unfortunately for Bill O'Brien and the Texans, there isn't one of that caliber available this year. Taking Clowney, unquestionably the most gifted player in the 2014 draft, and pairing him with J.J. Watt gives Houston the best opportunity to win right away.

2. ATLANTA FALCONS (FROM ST. LOUIS)

(4-12) Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo: The Falcons are desperate to land an impact pass rusher to star in defensive coordinator Mike Nolan's scheme and with Mack, one of this draft's blue-chip talents, almost surely off the board by the sixth pick, Atlanta will have to be aggressive. St. Louis Rams' general manager Les Snead previously worked under Atlanta's Thomas Dimitroff and may be willing to facilitate the trade given the likelihood that the Rams can still address their biggest area of concern -- the offensive line -- with one of the top tackles likely to be available a little later.
3. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

(4-12) Blake Bortles, QB, UCF: Given head coach Gus Bradley's defensive background, the Jaguars would likely take either Clowney or Mack if available. With each off the board, however, Jacksonville instead takes the more traditional route of building with the draft's top passer.
4. CLEVELAND BROWNS

(4-12) Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M: Veteran Brian Hoyer is a serviceable quarterback but he, like virtually every other quarterback the Browns have trotted out since Bernie Kosar, lacks the star power to turn around this rudderless franchise. Do I have questions about Manziel's ability to hold up in the ultra-physical AFC North, especially at gusty and grassy FirstEnergy Stadium? Sure, but waiting to see which quarterback may fall to No. 26 (or lower) could mean more of the same for a long-suffering fan base. If he is not chosen here, Manziel could be in for quite a slide.

32. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

ROUND 2
1. HOUSTON TEXANS

(2-14) Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh: O'Brien gets his prototypical NFL passer in Savage, who some scouts believe would rank as a top 10 prospect had he played his entire career with one program.

2. WASHINGTON REDSKINS

(3-13) Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
3. CLEVELAND BROWNS

(4-12) Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss

13. DETROIT LIONS

(7-9) Dominique Easley, DT, Florida
14. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

(8-8) Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame
15. DALLAS COWBOYS

(8-8) Joel Bitonio, OG, Nevada: Gritty and versatile, Bitonio could team with recent first round picks Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick to give Dallas a strong young nucleus along the offensive line.
16. BALTIMORE RAVENS

(8-8) Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State: Ozzie Newsome could see Richburgh - viewed by some as a plug and play talent -- as an instant upgrade over incumbent starting center Gino Gradkowski.
17. NY JETS

(8-8) Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech: The Jets rely on their defensive line to supply their pass rush but could see this former Yellow Jacket as a fit as a traditional 3-4 edge rusher.
18. MIAMI DOLPHINS

(8-8) Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State
19. CHICAGO BEARS

(8-8) Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
20. ARIZONA CARDINALS

(10-6) Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU: Bruce Arians may love Carson Palmer but adding a young passer to groom behind him would be wise.
21. GREEN BAY PACKERS

(8-7-1) Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington: The reigning Mackey Award winner possesses the length and reliable mitts to help ease the sting of the expected loss of Jermichael Finley.
22. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

(10-6) Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State: Chip Kelly gets the big receiver he prefers in his offense with a local standout.
23. CINCINNATI BENGALS

(11-5) JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee: The Bengals do a terrific job each year of filling holes and could see the underrated James as an ideal replacement for right tackle Anthony Collins, who left via free agency.
24. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

(12-4) Marcus Smith, DE, Louisville: With Aldon Smith's availability in question, the 49ers would be wise to seek reinforcements.
25. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

(9-7) DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State: The Chargers boast two of the better young five-technique defensive ends in Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes and could see the 6-4, 322-pound Jones as a quality nose guard candidate.
26. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

(11-5) Marcus Martin, C, Southern California: With veteran Brian de la Puente signing with the Chicago Bears, the highly physical, aggressive Martin could be counted on to start as a rookie.
27. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

(11-5) Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
28. CAROLINA PANTHERS

(12-4) Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss: Due to the extraordinary depth at the position, the Panthers can afford to wait until Day Two to find receivers for Cam Newton.
29. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

(12-4) Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
30. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

(12-4) Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
31. DENVER BRONCOS

(13-3) Davante Adams, WR
32. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

(13-3) Marcus Smith, DE, Louisville: Pete Carroll is always looking for edge rushers and with Cliff Avril only signed for one more year, adding depth at the LEO position is critical.
