Marc Sluis Seven Round 2014 Mock Draft - POST COMBINE MOCK

03-10-2014

Now with the NFL Scouting Combine complete, we look at a full 7 round mock draft. Much was learned at the Combine and new rankings and new mocks are a must following it.

Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Houston TexansDEJadeveon Clowney #South Carolina
 A quarterback is always in play at #1, but rarely is there a prospect with the mythical athletic ability of a Jadaveon Clowney. Pairing such a freak with JJ Watt would be awfully tough for opponents to block, and for quarterbacks to sleep at night.
2St. Louis RamsOTGreg Robinson #Auburn
 (from Redskins) The 6'5 332 pound mauler had an impressive combine posting a sub 5.0 40, 32 reps on the bench and 35 inch arms. All those are ideal for a franchise left tackle but his agility in drills cemented his top 10 status. As far as the Rams are concerned they have the leverage to command a nice price for this pick and could very well deal this pick to a team like the Falcons or QB needy team like Minnesota.
3Jacksonville JaguarsQBBlake Bortles #UCF
 Bortles has done nothing but help build his image by throwing at the combine and interviewing well. It also helps when you measure out at 6'5 232 pounds. The Jags need a franchise quarterback and if Bortles does go #1 Manziel or Bridgewater are certainly in play.
4Cleveland BrownsQBTeddy Bridgewater #Louisville
 The Browns have a dedicated and passionate fan base but a dysfunctional front office holding them back. One move that would signal they are moving in the right direction would be snagging a high character field general with pinpoint accuracy and above average mobility.
5Oakland RaidersQBJohnny Manziel #Texas A&M
 Johnny Manziel is the most polarizing prospect in the class and it would seem like a classic Raider move taking the risky yet high potential player. Sammy Watkins is also an option but a quarterback would seem to be priority #1.
6Atlanta FalconsOLBKhalil MackBuffalo
 It's rare that one of the most physically gifted prospect comes from a non-traditional football school like Buffalo, but Mack combines speed, strength and the heart of a lion to terrorize offenses, including Ohio St.
7Tampa Bay BuccaneersOLBAnthony BarrUCLA
 A converted fullback Barr has had to a learn a new position quickly, but has made quite the transition. The 6'5 'backer with long arms has the athleticism and burst to intrigue teams running a 3-4. Lovie Smith has played a Tampa 2 style 4-3 historically but Barr is the type of raw athlete he could mold into a dynamic pass rusher to be deployed in multiple roles.
8Minnesota VikingsQBDerek CarrFresno State
 Derek Carr has his flaws (footwork, composure under pressure, etc) but his arm strength, football IQ and maturity are elite. Having Adrian Peterson at his disposal will help the rookie and potentially draw eight in the box, opening up space vertically for him to attack deep.
9Buffalo BillsWRSammy Watkins #Clemson
 The Bills need to juice up their offensive attack and Watkins is just the explosive threat necessary to do so. His frame and body control often go unnoticed but its due to his inherent ability to impact a game in so many ways like bubble screens, kick returns and deep catches.
10Detroit LionsCBDarqueze DennardMichigan State
 The Lions have avoided using a premium pick on the secondary for several years but with a crop of corners like this year available as well as a new coaching staff its likely they finally pull the trigger. The two impact corners on their board will be Dennard and Justin Gilbert who both solidified their stock at the combine.
11Tennessee TitansOTJake MatthewsTexas A&M
 It's unfortunate that a talented and consistent prospect with great bloodlines drops due to nothing in his control. Greg Robinson and Jadaveon Clowney are flashier and the quarterback position is so heavily valued that Matthews gets pushed down to Titans team who'd love to add the left tackle.
12New York GiantsOTTaylor LewanMichigan
 Eli Manning had a horrendous year behind a terrible O-line and making sure he has the time to read defenses from pocket will be one of the goals of the offseason. Lewan showcased surprising athleticism in Indy and his nasty demeanor will hopefully inject some toughness and life into the G-Men at the point of attack.
13St. Louis RamsSHaha Clinton-Dix #Alabama
 What the Rams do with their #2 overall selection will ultimately shape this pick and possibly the entire first round. If Greg Robinson is taken to pair with Jake Long, the next major need is at safety. Rookie TJ McDonald went down with an early injury but Clinton-Dix is an upgrade who can deliver bone jarring hits and play centerfield.
14Chicago BearsDTTimmy Jernigan #Florida State
 Injuries on the defense cost the Bears any chance of making the playoffs. Surprisingly Jay Cutler going down was less of a negative with Josh McCown playing like a Pro Bowl candidate. With Cutler recently resigned the focus will shift back to the defense. Jernigan is a talented tackle with the quickness and mobility to penetrate even at the NFL level.
15Pittsburgh SteelersDTLouis Nix III #Notre Dame
 The great Steeler defenses of the recent pass were known for the hair on fire play of Troy Polamolu and hard hitting of James Harrison. Those elite defenses were actually built on Casey Hampton's block absorbing ability at the nose. Nix is a beast up front who is massive, strong and more than capable of helping to solidify that three man front.
16Dallas CowboysDTAaron DonaldPittsburgh
 The Cowboys will miss out on the postseason yet again, but there are patches of talent throughout the roster. One place they could improve upon is any position on the defense besides DeMarcus Ware. Aaron Donald ran a ridiculous 4.68 at 285 pounds and that explosive ability is confirmed on tape.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Baltimore RavensWRMike Evans #Texas A&M
 The Ravens missed Anquan Boldin more than I think they know. Joe Flacco struggled without a true playmaker outside of Torrey Smith. With Dennis Pitta healthy and another big hybrid receiver like Evans outside teams will have to respect Flacco's arm once again.
18New York JetsTEEric Ebron #North Carolina
 This pick fills two needs for the Jets who needed an NFL starting caliber tight end and actual offensive threat for Geno Smith or whoever plays quarterback. Ebron is eerily close to a Stephon Hill type prospect because his talent is only clouded by inconsistency. But you don't find receivers with his size, smooth athleticism, explosion and functional strength very often.
19Miami DolphinsOTZack MartinNotre Dame
 Martin helped his stock more than maybe anyone at the Senior Bowl. The Dolphins lost two starting linemen to the Incognito-Martin saga so they could pluck a few offensive line prospects in May. Martin will project inside for some teams but that works for the Fins who can use help all over the line.
20Arizona CardinalsCBBradley Roby #Ohio State
 Bradley Roby resuscitated his stock a bit with a great combine although teams always knew he was an A+ athlete. With Cyrus Kouandjio's knee getting a lot of negative attention Arizona may have to wait until the second round to get some help up front.
21Green Bay PackersILBC.J. MosleyAlabama
 Mosley might not be the flashy edge rusher or hard hitting safety but he's as close to a can't miss linebacking prospect as there is. His ability to play the run and excel in coverage will help an up and down Packers defense.
22Philadelphia EaglesSCalvin Pryor #Louisville
 Chip Kelly's offense is taking shape but the defense is more than a work in progress. The secondary is a major weak point and Pryor's aggressive mentality at the safety position is moving him up draft boards quickly.
23Kansas City ChiefsWROdell Beckham Jr. #LSU
 The Chiefs have a relatively complete roster but the offense lacks a vertical threat. Beckham is fast enough to provide that but also attacks the ball when covered.
24Cincinnati BengalsDEKony Ealy #Missouri
 On the offensive end its up to Andy Dalton to take the team to the next level. Geno Atkins is signed long term but adding a versatile and athletic defender at the end position would only help limit the amount of double teams Atkins has to deal with.
25San Diego ChargersCBJustin GilbertOklahoma State
 The Chargers could use an upgrade at corner and there are not many prospects with Gilbert's speed (4.37), size (6'0 202) and length (33 1/8 inch arms).
26Cleveland BrownsWRMarqise Lee #USC
 (from Colts) The Browns have a new coach after just one year with Rod Chudzinski and picking the quarterback of the future is going to be addressed with one of these two first rounders. Lee is a great addition to a burgeoning star in Josh Gordon. Lee's smooth athleticism, speed and ability to create separation would be a perfect complement to Gordon's physical style.
27New Orleans SaintsDE/34LB/OLBDee FordAuburn
 Rob Ryan did an outstanding job turning an awful Saints defense into an attacking turnover machine. Adding Ford, who showed the most explosiveness off the edge during the Senior Bowl, would make them even better.
28Carolina PanthersWRKelvin Benjamin #Florida State
 Cam Newton looks to be taking the next step in his development but Steve Smith will have to lose a step at some point right? Benjamin has the size and strength of a tight end but the athleticism of a receiver. His ability to high point the ball makes him impossible to cover in the red zone.
29San Francisco 49ersCBJason VerrettTCU
 Verrett won't wow you physically, although his 4.38 was impressive, but the guy understands coverage. He is always a step ahead of the receiver and would give the Niners the reliable cover corner they need to solidify an already stellar defense.
30New England PatriotsTEJace Amaro #Texas Tech
 Amaro is a gifted route runner for a tight end and is able to attack the seam of the defense. That would force teams to play him or Gronk one on one, which is always a losing proposition.
31Denver BroncosDTRa'Shede HagemanMinnesota
 Denver's window is closing and maximizing the last few years of having Peyton Manning at quarterback means improving the defense. Terrence Knighton is emerging into an All-Pro type nose tackle but Hageman would bring a dose of athleticism to the defensive line.
32Seattle SeahawksGDavid Yankey #Stanford
 The Seahawks don't have many holes, but they could use some help on the interior of the offensive line. Yankey is very mobile and more than capable of playing in space, which is something he would be asked to do blocking for Russell Wilson.
