NFL Draft 2014: Who's Being Overrated in Late Approach to Draft?

With the 2014 NFL draft being moved back a couple of weeks from it's previous spot on the calendar, even more time is given for certain prospects' stocks to rise.  

Whether it's in the eyes of a particular media pundit or based on rumblings that seem to be coming from within the league, this time of year is prime breeding ground for overrating prospects.  There are also those prospects who have been seemingly overrated through the entire process, having their value inflated for a multitude of reasons.

As we head into the final stages of "Draft Season," here's a look at some players who I feel are overrated at the moment.  


What makes these prospects overrated?

Considered in compiling this list are multiple factors:

  • Overvaluing based on offseason workouts rather than college game film
  • A drastic change in ranking based on reported interest from NFL teams
  • My own personal evaluations

NOTE: This list doesn't take into account where I think these players will be drafted.  Just because I don't think a player should be taken in the first round doesn't mean I think every NFL team will agree.
