NFL General Managers on the Hot Seat Ahead of 2014 Draft
Marcio Jose Sanchez

We are less than one month away from the 2014 NFL draft, and there are a handful of general managers who are squarely on the hot seat ahead of it.

While a losing season in 2014 could find each of the five men on this list out of a job, nailing the draft is the foolproof method to ensure job security. A successful draft haul will reap immediate and future dividends, and give the team an on-field boost throughout the season.

Plus, a strong rookie class will provide perception that the team is on the up-and-up, making it difficult to fire the primary decision-maker.

The general managers who comprise this list are on it for a variety of reasons. Some have lorded over underachieving squads, one has failed to acquire a franchise quarterback, one has failed to produce a halfway-decent season and one is employed by Stephen Ross (sorry, Dennis Hickey).

When May 8 rolls around, the pressure will be on these five men to deliver results. If they don't, the hot seat could turn into a notice of termination.

Here are the NFL general managers on the hot seat ahead of the 2014 NFL draft.
