2014 NFL Mock Draft: 7-Round Predictions at the Start of Free Agency

    The major events of the combine process are finished, but where prospects will land on draft day still has one major hurdle before the draft picture becomes clear: free agency.

    With free agency starting on March 11, we'll get a much clearer picture of team needs, positional value on rosters and which teams will still be in the market for a quarterback come draft day.

    While much can, and likely will, change in terms of draft predictions after free agency, here's a full seven-round mock draft prior to free agency.

1. Houston Texans: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

1 of 38

    Barring the possibility of the Texans addressing the quarterback position in the next few weeks, look for this to be the near consensus selection for mock drafters to make. With Matt Schaub likely on his way out and Case Keenum unlikely to be the long-term answer for Bill O'Brien, grabbing a franchise quarterback with his first pick seems likely.

    While I feel Teddy Bridgewater is the better passer in this draft, Bortles' upside is clear, and his ideal measurables and flashes of elite potential make him a worthwhile pick for a quarterback guru like O'Brien to develop.

2. Atlanta Falcons (TRADE with STL): Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

2 of 38

    RICHARD SHIRO/Associated Press

    I'll stick with the theory that if Jadeveon Clowney doesn't go first overall, he will end up as the second selection in the 2014 draft. While St. Louis could stay at No. 2 and take the draft's best non-quarterback, Atlanta trading up to secure the best player at their most pressing position seems more likely.

    Atlanta hasn't been afraid to trade up in the draft before, and if the Falcons can move up four spots by giving up just one other top-100 draft pick, they can quickly turn their 2013 defensive struggles around.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

3 of 38

    John Raoux/Associated Press

    Franchise quarterbacks don't grow on trees, and the general theory is that if you have a chance to grab one, you do it without question. Teddy Bridgewater's perceived "draft value" has fluctuated throughout the process, but he grades out as the best passer in this draft.

    If the Jaguars can secure Bridgewater, they can quickly begin to turn the franchise's fortunes around and pave the way for Gus Bradley to lead the team into the playoffs over the next two years.

4. Cleveland Browns: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

4 of 38

    RICHARD SHIRO/Associated Press

    The Browns would love to find their franchise quarterback, something they've needed since the team returned to the NFL in 1999, in this draft. However, they'd be unwise to force the issue and instead should opt to add more offensive firepower to support whoever inherits the starting quarterback spot.

    Sammy Watkins is the best offensive playmaker in this draft, and pairing him with Josh Gordon for the future would make for an exciting duo that could quickly make this receiving corps one of the best in the NFL.

5. Oakland Raiders: Khalil Mack, OLB/DE, Buffalo

5 of 38

    Mike Groll/Associated Press

    With the Raiders coaching staff working on one-year deals and general manager Reggie McKenzie on the hot seat, look for Oakland to focus its draft (and free agency) efforts on immediate impact players. If Teddy Bridgewater doesn't fall to them, I think the Raiders will turn their attention to Sammy Watkins and Khalil Mack.

    Mack is a pro-ready pass-rusher who can play linebacker or defensive end depending on the formation and situation. He can provide instant pass-rush help, which could be especially necessary if the team can't bring back Lamarr Houston in free agency.

6. St. Louis Rams (TRADE with ATL): Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

6 of 38

    Dave Martin/Associated Press

    The Rams could opt to stick at No. 2 overall and draft Greg Robinson, the best offensive tackle in the 2014 class. However, if they do move down with Atlanta, there's still a chance they could land the player who potentially tops their draft board.

    With Sam Bradford ingrained as the starting quarterback for another season, St. Louis would like to upgrade their protection for him. Robinson had a breakout season at Auburn this past season and turned in a phenomenal NFL combine, both of which have led to his rise as a legitimate top-five prospect.

7. Tampa Bay Bucs: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

7 of 38

    TONY AVELAR/Associated Press

    Derek Carr going before Johnny Manziel may shock fans of the draft and college football, but it's a very real possibility. The Bucs may opt for an offensive tackle (though The Baltimore Sun has linked Anthony Collins to the team) or a defensive end (though Khalil Mack will already be off the board and Anthony Barr isn't a great fit) at this pick, but quarterback is a real option, as this regime has no ties to last year's drafted quarterback Mike Glennon.

    Derek Carr ranks above Johnny Manziel on my board, so value-wise, it isn't far-fetched. And with new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford being the former offensive coordinator for David Carr while both were at Fresno State, there's clear ties between Carr and the Bucs. 

8. Minnesota Vikings: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame

8 of 38

    Joe Raymond/Associated Press

    After letting Letroy Guion go last week, per NFL.com, the Vikings have a glaring hole at nose tackle, a key position in new head coach Mike Zimmer's defense. The team already has talented 3-technique Sharrif Floyd on the roster, so pairing him up with the monstrous Louis Nix could allow the Vikings to keep with their franchise's trend in dominating the middle of the line of scrimmage.

    Nix is a bit of a reach here based on his play this past season at Notre Dame and a lackluster combine performance, but there's only so many athletes that are this big (342 pounds) and have the success Nix has had in his playing past.

9. Buffalo Bills: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

9 of 38

    Gerry Broome/Associated Press

    After the surprise drafting of EJ Manuel last year, the new focus of the Bills should be to add weapons around him to produce success on offense. Enter Eric Ebron, whose rare pass-catching fluidity for a tight end and overall athletic smoothness should allow him to slide into the NFL and provide an instant impact.

    Similar to Vernon Davis coming out of Maryland, Ebron has the unique skill set and upside to be a worthwhile top-10 pick despite playing a position that generally doesn't get selected in that area. Ebron can quickly become Manuel's safety valve in the offense.

10. Detroit Lions: HaHa Clinton-Dix, SAF, Alabama

10 of 38

    Dave Martin/Associated Press

    The Lions have been linked to drafting Mike Evans more than once, including in Todd McShay's recent mock draft (via The Detroit News), but I'm personally not sold yet on the fit. With such a deep receiver class, the Lions can surely get a No. 2 receiver to aid in Calvin Johnson's productivity in the second and/or third round, so taking one at No. 10 seems like a waste in value.

    The team has already released safety Louis Delmas, and with the safety class lacking depth in the 2014 draft, getting the best of the bunch and a worthwhile top-20 value in HaHa Clinton-Dix seems like a much wiser option.

11. Tennessee Titans: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

11 of 38

    Patric Schneider/Associated Press

    Jake Matthews could still go as high as second overall, so to see him at No. 11 is a bit surprising. However, if three quarterbacks do slide into the top 10 picks, we could see Matthews (and Taylor Lewan) slide a bit into double-digit territory on draft day.

    As for the fit in Tennessee, the Titans need to add more youth to their offensive line, especially with both starting tackles Michael Roos and David Stewart entering the final year of their respective deals. Also, Jake's father, Bruce Matthews, was a Hall of Famer for the Titans, adding another connection to this potential option.

12. New York Giants: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

12 of 38

    Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

    After David Diehl announced his retirement back in late January, the offensive line became a glaring need for the Giants in both free agency and the draft. At pick No. 12 in most drafts, finding an elite offensive tackle isn't an easy task. However, thanks to a loaded 2014 class, a player like Taylor Lewan, who would have been debated as the best tackle in the 2013 class had he declared, has a very real chance to fall to New York on draft day.

    Lewan can provide either an instant upgrade at left tackle over the struggling William Beatty or slide into the right tackle spot to give Beatty another year to improve his play. Either way, Lewan could do wonders for Eli Manning and hopefully get this offense back on draft.

13. St. Louis Rams: Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA

13 of 38

    Mark J. Terrill/Associated Press

    Anthony Barr isn't a finished product, but he possesses one of the highest ceilings of any prospect in this draft, regardless of position. While he could land in the top seven picks, Barr falls on this mock draft scenario thanks to the quarterbacks going early. 

    For the Rams, while they may not need another pass-rusher right now, grabbing Barr to play the strong-side linebacker spot and providing situational depth as a defensive end will only improve this defense further and for the future. Drafting is all about adding talent to the roster, and Barr provides the most talent for the Rams at this point in the first round.

14. Chicago Bears: C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama

14 of 38

    Butch Dill/Associated Press

    The era of Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs has come and gone in Chicago, and finding linebacker help is now one of the biggest needs for the Bears in this draft. While Lance Briggs is still on the roster, he'll be 34 during the 2014 season. And according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required), inside linebacker Jon Boston was one of the worst at his position last year.

    C.J. Mosley can slide in as either an inside or strong-side linebacker for the Bears, giving this team an experienced leader and versatile presence for a defense that sorely needs defensive help. 

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

15 of 38

    Sue Ogrocki/Associated Press

    The Steelers could go a variety of directions with the 15th overall pick, as they have a handful of needs after not drafting as well as their reputation may have led people to believe. With a nose tackle like Timmy Jernigan, an offensive lineman like Zack Martin and a top cornerback talent like Justin Gilbert, they'll have options with their pick to improve at their three biggest needs.

    I'll leave Gilbert for the pick as of now, as the team desperately needs to improve its secondary. While his instincts and anticipation concerns are worrisome, especially for a senior who's played the position throughout college, his length and upside may be too talented to pass on for a team in need of a cornerback in the first round.

16. Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

16 of 38

    Keith Srakocic/Associated Press

    The Cowboys defense was one of the worst in the NFL last season, in large part due to their pass defense issues. While addressing the safety position is needed as well, providing an interior pass-rusher should be able to force quarterbacks off-balance more often and allow for fewer vertical passing options for safeties to defend.

    Aaron Donald is the best interior pass-rusher in this draft, and after wowing with his NFL Scouting Combine performance, which followed a dominant senior season and Senior Bowl, Donald seems like a top-20 lock for the draft.

17. Baltimore Ravens: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

17 of 38

    David J. Phillip/Associated Press

    Mike Evans could be a fit for teams in the top 10, including the Vikings, Bills and Lions, but I think the second half of the top 20 picks is a bit more likely. I'm not personally sold on Evans' ability to get NFL-level separation and do much more than win jump balls in the NFL, but he possesses rare size, strength, physicality and workout numbers for a receiver.

    For the Ravens, he fills the Anquan Boldin role that Joe Flacco clearly missed this past season, and playing alongside Torrey Smith and Dennis Pitta in the offense should limit the impact Evans needs to make each week as a rookie, allowing him his necessary development in Baltimore.

18. New York Jets: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

18 of 38

    Rogelio V. Solis/Associated Press

    The Jets made Geno Smith their second-round pick last year, and after starting him 16 games last season, the New York coaching staff is tied to Smith's success for the future. With that in mind, finding more weapons for him to develop with would be a wise move for the Jets, and they'll have plenty of options in the 2014 draft.

    Odell Beckham Jr. isn't a finished product as a route-runner, but he's the smoothest receiver after Sammy Watkins in this class and can provide an instant vertical and big-play threat for Geno Smith. With Stephen Hill seemingly being a bust and Santonio Holmes having been rumored to be cut since late February, according to Pro Football Talk, finding a top-notch receiver is a must for the Jets.

19. Miami Dolphins: Zack Martin, OT/OG, Notre Dame

19 of 38

    David Zalubowski/Associated Press

    After the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito situation, and with the Dolphins already having one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, finding help across the line is a no-brainer for this Miami organization. I mean, just look at this current depth chart, courtesy of Ourlads.com.

    It'd be a massive shock if Jake Matthews or Taylor Lewan fell to Miami at pick No. 19, so if the team wants one of the premier blockers in this draft, trading up is a must. If the Dolphins stand still at 19, Zack Martin is their best option. While he won't solve their left tackle concerns, he's a plug-and-play right tackle or guard for the Dolphins. 

20. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

20 of 38

    With Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu already giving this team two plus-athletes in the secondary, adding Kyle Fuller, potentially the best Cover-3 cornerback in this class, would give this secondary the firepower to contain Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson for the future.

    Fuller emerged onto the national draft scene thanks to Mike Mayock of NFL Network talking about him as a first-rounder in his February conference call, and landing in the top 20 picks seems like a reasonable posibility for Fuller, despite him dealing with injuries throughout his senior season.

21. Green Bay Packers: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

21 of 38

    With Jermichael Finley no longer the featured tight end in Green Bay, Andrew Quarless exploring his options in free agency and James Jones expected to leave, the Packers are, surprisingly, in need of bigger-bodied receiver threats to keep the offense productive.

    Jace Amaro can fit that role, especially thanks to his Jimmy Graham-type skill set. A below-average blocker who's more receiver than tight end, Amaro certainly provides a middle-of-the-field threat and a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Calvin Pryor, SAF, Louisville

22 of 38

    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    Thanks to a lackluster safety class and teams valuing safeties more than ever, Calvin Pryor could end up in the top 15 picks on draft day. So if he somehow slips to the 20s, look for the Eagles to pounce, with even trading up being a legitimate option. 

    The Eagles could use help at every level of the defense, but adding a high-impact, aggressive safety like Pryor could help their talented cornerback group and put less pressure on the pass rush to produce.

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Marqise Lee, WR, USC

23 of 38

    After Dwayne Bowe, the Chiefs lack a legitimate starting receiver on their roster. While they could look to free agency to give Alex Smith some help, utilizing one of the best receiver classes in recent draft history is a far better (and cheaper) option.

    Marqise Lee has long been viewed as a future NFL starter since he burst into the spotlight as a USC freshman. While he (and the entire Trojan offense) had a down year last season, his talent hasn't disappeared. Look for Lee to be highly coveted in the mid-to-late first round, with the Chiefs and Andy Reid's offense being a great fit.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

24 of 38

    Jamie Squire/Getty Images

    With Michael Johnson set to command a hefty salary in free agency, he likely won't be returning in Cincinnati. While the Bengals don't have a glaring need along the defensive line, keeping their rotation as one of the strengths of the defense would be wise if they hope to continue to keep Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger off-balance.

    Kony Ealy was a bit forgotten on the Missouri defense, especially after teammate Michael Sam won SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year. Ealy is a versatile, high-upside pass-rusher who can provide the Bengals with versatility and be another guy who has potential to put up 10-plus sacks per season.

25. San Diego Chargers: Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn

25 of 38

    Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

    The Chargers franchise has consistently tried to add pass-rushers to their defense for years but haven't found an impact player at the position since Shawn Merriman was suspended six seasons ago. 

    Dwight Freeney and Jarrett Johnson held the fort at the position last year, but neither are the long-term answer. Adding Ford to go along with last year's first-rounder, Melvin Ingram, could give this team two high-upside speed-rushers for the future.

26. Cleveland Browns (via IND): Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

26 of 38

    Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images

    The question of "Where will Johnny Football land on draft day?" is one that no one can answer now and likely will be the topic of the draft as soon as the Houston Texans are on the clock.

    As of now, my bets are on him slipping in the draft. With the quarterbacks in this mock draft being better fits for their respective teams than Manziel, we could see Manziel slip to the bottom half of Round 1. If that's the case, I'll say the Browns take the chance on Manziel after passing on him at No. 4 overall.

27. New Orleans Saints: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech

27 of 38

    Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

    Jeremiah Attaochu was one of the ACC's most productive and impressive pass-rushers in 2011 as a sophomore. But a change in the Georgia Tech defensive philosophy forced Attaochu to play in roles that weren't ideal for his skill set, and his production, and eventual draft hype, fell drastically.

    That being said, his upside as a 3-4 rusher hasn't faded, and teams in the late first round may be getting a steal when they scoop up the former Yellow Jacket. The Saints are in desperate need of pass-rushers, and with them currently being strapped for cash, look for them to address the position on draft day.

28. Carolina Panthers: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

28 of 38

    Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

    Darqueze Dennard is one of the draft's best defensive players, in my opinion. But with this draft being loaded with guys that possess higher upside and four quarterbacks going in the first round, Dennard has a real chance to slide on draft day.

    Still my top-ranked cornerback, the Panthers are likely in need of an instant starter with Captain Munnerlyn looking elsewhere, and DeAndre Presley is the "next man up," according to Ourlads.com depth charts. Dennard can give this team an instant starter.

29. New England Patriots: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State

29 of 38

    Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

    The Patriots could look at tight end, offensive line or defensive back at this spot, but with one of the premier nose tackles available and Vince Wilfork coming off injury, finding his replacement in Timmy Jernigan is a wise decision. 

    Jernigan has some motor/conditioning question marks, but his talent as a nose tackle is hard to find and overlook. If he can learn behind Wilfork for a season or two, the Patriots could develop one of the NFL's best nose tackles.

30. San Francisco 49ers: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

30 of 38

    Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

    In the last two drafts, the 49ers have been all about adding elite talents. After drafting the injury-riddled yet potentially elite Marcus Lattimore and Tank Carradine, San Francisco made it clear that it puts a premium on talent first, immediate impact second. 

    Insert Ra'Shede Hageman, who, talent-wise, could develop into the next Muhammad Wilkerson, eventually taking the starting role away from Justin Smith. However, he's still a bit raw and has some character baggage. Utilizing him situationally as a rookie and hiding him for a year would be a wise strategy for a team looking to keep its defensive front seven a strength.

31. Denver Broncos: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

31 of 38

    Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

    The Broncos need serious help in their secondary, particularly at cornerback. With Champ Bailey already cut and their lack of ability to slow down the Seattle passing attack at all in the Super Bowl, finding a starting cornerback in this draft is a near must.

    While Bradley Roby struggled more than expected as a junior, particularly against more physical pass-catchers, his rare speed and fluidity will give the Broncos coaching staff plenty of talent to work with.

32. Seattle Seahawks: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

32 of 38

    Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

    After Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that some teams have taken Cyrus Kouandjio off their boards due to knee arthritis, the expectation was that he'd fall drastically on draft day.

    However, at a position like offensive tackle, where movement and explosion aren't premium skills, he could play in the NFL for six to eight years before it's a career-ending concern. The Seahawks need an instant starter at right tackle, and the mauling Kouandjio fits the Seattle offensive mindset perfectly.
