With that said, the potential gems in this draft are plenty, so organizations must make the most of each and every pick they have. Here is a look at the entire 2014 NFL draft order along with further analysis regarding some of the top prospects available.

Top Prospects to Watch

Jadeveon Clowney

In terms of raw ability, it is difficult to argue with the notion that South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is the top prospect in the 2014 NFL draft. Whether or not that leads to the Houston Texans taking him with the first-overall pick remains to be seen, however.

Clowney didn't have a particularly great season in 2013, and there is some concern that he isn't willing to go the extra mile in order to be great. According to Mark Eckel of NJ.com, an anonymous NFC personnel man is disenchanted by a perceived lack of effort on Clowney's part.

He's spoiled, and he's lazy. He's never worked hard a day in his life, now all of a sudden you're going to give him a bunch of money and expect him to work hard. I don't see it. (...) Oh, he's going to be a high pick. Some team will fall in love with him. But wait and see, just wait and see. I just don't think you can count on him. I'm betting the under on him.

That may be enough to scare some teams away, but the raw talent is extremely enticing. According to NFL on ESPN, draft expert Todd McShay puts Clowney in an elite class in terms of his ability:

Clowney could possibly be taken first by the Texans, but their need for a quarterback may very well supersede that. The St. Louis Rams pick second, although they already have great defensive ends. With that in mind, look for the Jacksonville Jaguars to take a long, hard look at Clowney at No. 3, with the Oakland Raiders being the safety net at No. 5.

 

Blake Bortles

Which 2014 NFL draft prospect will have the best NFL career?

Submit Vote vote to see results

All signs pointed toward Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater being the top signal-caller in the 2014 draft throughout the 2013 season, but things have seemingly changed since the conclusion of the campaign. It can be argued that Bridgewater has been surpassed by both Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel, who are potentially battling to become the No. 1 overall pick.

Manziel has the name recognition, star power and flashy play, but Bortles is a big, prototypical quarterback. He has drawn comparisons to Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger, and there is little doubt that Houston would love to have a quarterback in that mold.

Per James Palmer of CSNHouston.com, Bortles has plenty of interest in becoming a member of the Texans as well:

There are no guarantees, but it seems more and more likely that Houston will go with a quarterback at No. 1. It is an obvious need, and this class looks like a strong one in terms of quarterback quality. The fact that Bortles has soared up draft boards so quickly means that the Texans should approach with caution, but he definitely has all the tools necessary to be a star.

 

Sammy Watkins

Much like the quarterback position, the wide receiver class in the 2014 draft is stacked with talent. In fact, wide receiver may be the deepest position in the entire draft pool. There is no question that Clemson wideout Sammy Watkins is atop the heap, and he could be a game-changing player for some team early in the draft.

Watkins' combination of size, speed and route-running ability is something that doesn't come around on a yearly basis. In fact, Greg A. Bedard of Monday Morning Quarterback believes that Watkins has the ability to revolutionize the wide receiver position.

That will depend largely upon who is throwing Watkins the ball at the next level, but he certainly has the skills necessary to make players around him better. Taking a receiver at No. 2 is somewhat rare, but it would be very difficult for the Rams to pass on Watkins. He fills a need and gives quarterback Sam Bradford a target he can rely on.

If the Rams nab Watkins and he becomes a star in the NFL, then St. Louis will give the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers headaches in the NFC West for years to come.
