An early first-round mock for the 2014 NFL Draft

By Keith Hernandez

Who doesn't love the NFL Draft? In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd satisfy all of you football lovers with an early mock draft. The offseason is only a few weeks old, and the start of free agency is less than a month away, but most of you die-hards are already counting down the days until the 2014 season.

I usually don't do any mock drafts this early, since the draft is still several months away and my guesses will probably change drastically as draft day approaches, but what the hell? As Cory Bonini suggested a week ago during his first mock of the season, there will probably be several trades in the top-10 picks, but for the sake of keeping these mocks clean, I'll refrain from prognosticating any swaps in the first round. Here you go:
