As the NFL season is over it is time to update the mock draft. Some of the picks might surprise you, some may not. I did not do any trades, however, I am thinking there will be a few. So without further delay Mock Draft v2.2:

1. Houston Texans
Blake Bortles

I am sure I will get a ton of flack from many thinking the Texans should go with Manziel. I just think Bortles offers more in terms of how the Texans are built. Also, remember he beat Bill O’Brian’s Penn State (new Texans coach) last season, he knows what this kid can do.

2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington)
Jadeveon Clowney

I just think the Rams will stick with Bradford and improve their defense. They are in the NFC West and have to compete with the 49ers and Seahawks.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Teddy Bridgewater
QB, Lousiville

The Jags are in dire need of a QB. Bridgewater will give them a QB they can build around, they are happy he is on the board at 3.

4. Cleveland Browns
Johnny Manziel
QB, Texas A&M

The Browns are also in need of a QB. They go with Manziel here. It is possible they trade up and take Bridgewater off the board forcing the Jags to settle for Manziel. (Yes, I said settle)

5. Oakland Raiders
Sammy Watkins
WR, Clemson

I also expect the Raiders to try to trade up to get one of the QBs. They could reach for Carr here, but with all the needs they have they go with best player on the board at this point. They might go Boyd in the 2nd.

6. Atlanta Falcons
Khalil Mack
OLB, Buffalo

It seems everyone has the Falcons taking Matthews here. I just don’t see it. This offense can put up points but there is no pass rush to be found anywhere on this team.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Kony Ealy
DE, Missouri

Some will be surprised to see the Buccs take Ealy this early, I just think after the combine and the fact one of the biggest needs for Tampa is a DE, Ealy makes sense.

8. Minnesota Vikings
Derek Carr
QB, Fresno State

The Vikings have to get something on offense. They have AP and really could use a QB who can throw a football. Carr falls and the Vikings are happy.

9. Buffalo Bills
Jake Matthews
OT, Texas A&M

The Bills are so happy they drop the paper with his name on it ten times before it gets turned in. Finally some protection.

10. Detroit Lions
Darqueze Dennard
CB, Mich St.

Oh how the Lions secondary has looked the last few seasons. While there is a possibility of a WR here to pair with Megatron, I just think they play it smart here.

11. Tennessee Titans
Greg Robinson
OT, Auburn

The Titans have quite a few needs, but blocking for Johnson seems like such an easy answer I would be surprised if they go in any other direction.

12. New York Giants
Taylor Lewan
OT, Mich

The Giants need to make sure Eli doesn’t get destroyed anymore. Since they missed on the top two guys they go with Lewan.

13. St. Louis Rams
Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix
S, Alabama

I am praying HaHa drops to the Cowboys, but I think the Rams will pick him here. They need so much help in the secondary.

14. Chicago Bears
Ra’Shede Hageman
DT, Minn

Another player I would love see fall to the Cowboys. After watching how the Bears just could not tackle this year, they go big.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Mike Evans
WR, Texas A&M

They really need some WRs in The Steel City. Evans provides a big target for Ben and should help the offense in ways they haven’t had in a while.

Tags: 2014 NFL Mock Draft Dallas Cowboys

  • Assassin

    Dallas has no 6th round pick. Also, I would expect big Cyril to be gone by the 2nd round at the latest. He’s the second best OG in the draft. Add that I would probably take West Texas A&M QB Dustin Vaughn – the player of the year over those late round QB’s.

    • n0ble

      I am currently basing where people go off of the most up to date rankings. This will all be updated as we go along and combines, workouts, etc are completed, hence why I have Cyril where I do. The problem I see for Vaughn is he is from such a small school I would see him going as an UDFA. Now I would not be opposed to getting him there. As for the 6th round, I know currently they do not have a 6th, but we are not 100% sure of comp picks and it is possible they trade into the 6th. Again, this will be updated a few more times leading up to the draft.

      • Assassin

        Keep an eye on Vaughn – 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, West Texas A&M – he went 447 of 675 for a 66.2 average with 5,401 yards and 53 touchdown passes in 2013. Vaughan is the only quarterback at any level to pass for 5,000 yards this season as he led the nation in passing and was second in passing yards per game. His 53 touchdown passes also led the nation and was the most in conference history in a season. He owns the school and conference record for career passing yards (13,525), total yards (13,608) and touchdowns (123). Draftscout said this: “While South Carolina’s Connor Shaw dominated the pre-game buzz for this contest, West Texas A&M’s Dustin Vaughan caught the attention of scouts throughout the week of practice and delivered a handful of passes Saturday afternoon to carry over his positive momentum. Scouts like Vaughan’s frame, as well as his functional mobility in the pocket and big arm. He showed the ability to check down to secondary targets, as well as good touch on two deep passes to Fresno State wideout Isaiah Burse. While the stat-book wasn’t impressive (2/5 for 38 yards), it would have been better if not for an ugly drop from Burse, who otherwise enjoyed a strong game as a receiver and returner, himself.”

          Not saying the kid won’t be or isn’t good. It is really unusual that such a small school product is taken before the 6th round. If we get him, fine, bring him in for a look. I went with Guiton because I like his leadership and his playing ability. I am not saying we don’t need to bring in more than 1 QB.

  • SK_Jersey13

    Great mock, some clever picks, like Ebron to the Pata. I’m surprised to not see Anthony Barr tho, I think he’s a sure top 15er

    • n0ble

      We shall see Barr will most likely come off the board, but every year there is one guy who for whatever reason drops…this mock it happened to be him. After the combine I am sure I will have him somewhere there. Problem is there is not a TON of need this season for OLBs, I would guess either the Rams or Bears if they went OLB. If he is still there for the Saints they may take him over Shazier. In fact I will change it for the Saints to grab him…
