2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 - Tim Heaney

By Tim Heaney

Sammy Watkins, NFL Draft Prospect
STL can't pass up Watkins

 

Unless one of these players gets injured or arrested, or another unforeseen circumstance occurs, this, like Cory's update yesterday, will be my final Round 1 NFL Mock Draft.

I did not predict trades, instead favoring what each team's best pick would be in a vacuum.

Enjoy and share!

School Comments
1
Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney

South Carolina Make talent fit the system. QB will come in Rd 2.
2
St. Louis Rams Sammy Watkins
WR
Clemson STL has enough O-line pieces and instead takes high-upside weapon.
3
Jacksonville Jaguars Khalil Mack
LB
Buffalo Gus Bradley gets his new "Leo." Little chance of a Titanic failure.
4
Cleveland Browns Greg Robinson
OT
Auburn Missing out on Watkins, new brass builds trenches to bolster Ben Tate's potential.
5
Oakland Raiders Mike Evans
WR
Texas A&M OAK hangs tight and grabs a WR1 type for Matt Schaub.
6
Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews
OT
Texas A&M Dirty Birds need a pass rush but also must protect Matt Ryan.
7
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Eric Ebron
TE
North Carolina Wanted Evans but not upset: Jeff Tedford will often make him a WR anyway.
8
Minnesota Vikings Blake Bortles
QB
Central Florida Guess Mike Zimmer talk wasn't a smokescreen.
9
Buffalo Bills Taylor Lewan
OT
Michigan More protection for EJ Manuel will do.
10
Detroit Lions Justin Gilbert
CB
Oklahoma State They need better secondary coverage to give their pass rushers more time.
11
Tennessee Titans Johnny Manziel
QB
Texas A&M Jake Locker had his chance. Time for a new era.
12
New York Giants Zack Martin
OT
Notre Dame Miss out on Ebron but get versatile, reliable cog for front 5.
13
St. Louis Rams Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
S
Alabama His range will do wonders for the D front.

Pittsburgh Steelers Darqueze Dennard
CB
Michigan State Will be groomed to be one of the next rocks of this D.
16
Dallas Cowboys Kony Ealy
DE
Missouri Raw but talented edge rusher helps fill void left by DeMarcus Ware.
17
Baltimore Ravens Calvin Pryor
S
Louisville This is a value pick. Ozzie Newsome is all about value picks.
18
New York Jets Odell Beckham
WR
Louisiana State NYJ make up for missing out on Tavon Austin last year with a more diverse WR.
19
Miami Dolphins C.J. Mosley

21

Ohio State LB is a bigger need than most think.
22
Philadelphia Eagles Marqise Lee

Cincinnati Bengals Bradley Roby
CB
Ohio State Roby off-field concerns appear overblown.

28
Carolina Panthers Brandin Cooks
WR
