2014 NFL Draft Picks: List of Prospects Selected by Each Team

There we have it. After 256 selections, the 2014 NFL draft reached its conclusion.

Each team improved through the draft; although, it will still be some time before we fully realize the impact of this draft class on the NFL as a whole.

Coming away with a good draft haul can propel a franchise into the NFL's elite. However, a poor draft can set a team back for years.

So, which team figures to benefit most this year?

As teams begin to scramble for undrafted free agents, let's take a team-by-team look back through the draft's seven rounds.

 

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 17 C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama
2 48 Timmy Jernigan DT Florida State
3 79 Terrence Brooks FS Florida State
3 99 Crockett Gillmore TE Colorado State
4 134 Brent Urban DT Virginia
4 138 Lorenzo Taliaferro RB Coastal Carolina
5 175 John Urschel OG Penn State
6 194 Keith Wenning QB Ball State
7 218 Mike Campanaro WR Wake Forest

NFL.com

A great selection in linebacker C.J. Mosley was the highlight of the draft for the Ravens. Mosley is an agile, athletic linebacker who will fit nicely in Baltimore's defensive scheme.

 

Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 24 Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
2 55 Jeremy Hill RB LSU
3 88 Will Clarke DE West Virginia
4 111 Russell Bodine C North Carolina
5 164 AJ McCarron QB Alabama
6 212 Marquis Flowers OLB Arizona
7 239 James Wright WR LSU
7 252 Lavelle Westbrooks CB Georgia Southern

NFL.com

The Bengals made a great choice in Darqueze Dennard in Round 1. Unfortunately, the team followed it up with a couple questionable picks in Jeremy Hill and AJ McCarron—not exactly great fits or positions of dire need.

 

Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 8 Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State
1 22 Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M
2 35 Joel Bitonio OT Nevada
3 71 Christian Kirksey OLB Iowa
3 94 Terrance West RB Towson
4 127 Pierre Desir CB Lindenwood

NFL.com

The Browns made the draft's biggest splash selecting Johnny Manziel at No. 22 overall. It will be interesting to see how he fares in his rookie season with a potential suspension looming for Josh Gordon.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 15 Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State
2 46 Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame
3 97 Dri Archer RB Kent State
4 118 Martavis Bryant WR Clemson
5 157 Shaquille Richardson CB Arizona
5 173 Wesley Johnson OT Vanderbilt
6 192 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
6 215 Daniel McCullers DT Tennessee
7 230 Rob Blanchflower TE Massachusetts

NFL.com

Pittsburgh added some nice pieces to its defensive front, however, the team still lacks youth in the secondary. Ryan Shazier should be a great fit, but it was a surprise this team didn't add a cornerback or safety in the early rounds.

 

AFC South

Houston Texans

Houston Texans' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 1 Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina
2 33 Xavier Su'a-Filo OG UCLA
3 65 C.J. Fiedorowicz TE Iowa
3 83 Louis Nix DT Notre Dame
4 135 Tom Savage QB Pittsburgh
6 177 Jeoffrey Pagan DE Alabama
6 181 Alfred Blue RB LSU
6 211 Jay Prosch FB Auburn
7 216 Andre Hal CB Vanderbilt
7 256 Lonnie Ballentine FS Memphis

NFL.com

Jadeveon Clowney was the draft's top prospect, and fittingly went No. 1 overall to the Texans. After adding Louis Nix later in the draft, the team's defensive front looks very scary this season.

 

Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
2 59 Jack Mewhort OT Ohio State
3 90 Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
5 166 Jonathan Newsome DE Ball State
6 203 Andrew Jackson ILB Western Kentucky
7 232 Ulrick John OT Georgia State

NFL.com

The Colts didn't have many picks to work with. The team did make the most of them, though, selecting Jack Mewhort to boost the offensive line and Donte Moncrief to give Andrew Luck a much-needed additional weapon.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 3 Blake Bortles QB Central Florida
2 39 Marqise Lee WR USC
2 61 Allen Robinson WR Penn State
3 93 Brandon Linder OG Miami
4 114 Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
5 144 Telvin Smith ILB Florida State
5 159 Chris Smith DE Arkansas
6 205 Luke Bowanko C Virginia
7 222 Storm Johnson RB Central Florida

NFL.com

It looked to be a risk selecting Blake Bortles at No. 3 overall, however, the Jaguars did a nice job of getting him some help quickly. Selecting Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson in the second round were great moves for the Jaguars.

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 11 Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
2 54 Bishop Sankey RB Washington
4 112 DaQuan Jones DT Penn State
4 122 Marqueston Huff FS Wyoming
5 152 Avery Williamson ILB Kentucky
6 178 Zach Mettenberger QB LSU

NFL.com

Taylor Lewan and Bishop Sankey will do wonders for this offense. Lewan is a mauler in the trenches, and Sankey is a well-rounded running back. The late addition of Zach Mettenberger also gives this team some leeway with Jake Locker.

 

AFC East

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 4 Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
2 44 Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama
3 73 Preston Brown ILB Louisville
4 109 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
5 153 Cyril Richardson OG Baylor
7 221 Randell Johnson OLB Florida Atlantic
7 237 Seantrel Henderson OT Miami

NFL.com

Trading up for Sammy Watkins at No. 4 overall was a brilliant move by the Bills. EJ Manuel continues to develop as an NFL quarterback, and having Watkins in the fold will do wonders.

 

Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 19 Ja'Wuan James OT Tennessee
2 63 Jarvis Landry WR LSU
3 67 Billy Turner OT North Dakota State
4 125 Walt Aikens CB Liberty
5 155 Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
5 171 Jordan Tripp OLB Montana
6 190 Matt Hazel WR Coastal Carolina
7 234 Terrence Fede DE Marist

NFL.com

The Dolphins addressed their needs along the offensive line, however, the team took a big reach for Ja'Wuan James in the first round. He now has some lofty expectations to live up to.

 

New England Patriots

New England Patriots' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 29 Dominique Easley DT Florida
2 62 Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois
4 105 Bryan Stork C Florida State
4 130 Jame White RB Wisconsin
4 140 Cameron Flemming OT Stanford
6 179 Jon Halapio OG Florida
6 198 Zach Moore DE Concordia
6 206 Jemea Thomas CB Georgia Tech
7 244 Jeremy Gallon WR Michigan

NFL.com

New England put together one of the draft's most puzzling hauls. Dominique Easley has great upside, but is recently removed from ACL surgery. Jimmy Garoppolo may be a talented prospect, but adding a signal-caller in the second round wasn't expected for this team.

 

New York Jets

New York Jets' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 18 Calvin Pryor FS Louisville
2 49 Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech
3 80 Dexter McDougle CB Maryland
4 104 Jalen Saunders WR Oklahoma
4 115 Shaq Evans WR UCLA
4 137 Dakota Dozier OT Furman
5 154 Jeremiah George ILB Iowa State
6 195 Brandon Dixon CB Northwest Missouri State
6 209 Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska
6 210 IK Enemkpali DE Louisiana Tech
6 213 Tajh Boyd QB Clemson
7 233 Trevor Reilly OLB Utah

NFL.com

The Jets had a great draft. Calvin Pryor adds a physical presence in the secondary, and Jace Amaro will give a big, fast target to whoever winds up under center this season.

 

AFC West

Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 31 Bradley Roby CB Ohio State
2 56 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
3 95 Michael Schofield OT Michigan
5 156 Lamin Barrow OLB LSU
6 207 Matthew Paradis C Boise State
7 242 Corey Nelson OLB Oklahoma

NFL.com

Bradley Roby was a phenomenal first-round selection for Denver. He fills a big need and will be a nice complement to Aqib Talib. Denver also got deeper at wide receiver, adding the talented Cody Latimer in the second round.

 

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 23 Dee Ford DE Auburn
3 87 Phillip Gaines CB Rice
4 124 De'Anthony Thomas RB Oregon
5 163 Aaron Murray QB Georgia
6 193 Zach Fulton OG Tennessee
6 200 Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill

NFL.com

It was a rather perplexing draft for the Chiefs. Dee Ford was not only a reach in the first round, but he doesn't seem to fill an immediate need. Adding De'Anthony Thomas in the fourth round was a great move, as he'll be a fine replacement for the departed Dexter McCluster.

 

Oakland Raiders

Oakland Raiders' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 5 Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
2 36 Derek Carr QB Fresno State
3 81 Gabe Jackson OG Mississippi State
4 107 Justin Ellis DT Louisiana Tech
4 116 Keith McGill CB Utah
7 219 Travis Carrie CB Ohio
7 235 Shelby Harris DE Illinois State
7 247 Jonathan Dowling SS Western Kentucky

NFL.com

Khalil Mack in the first round and Derek Carr in the second round began a great haul for the Raiders. This team improved in a big way on both sides of the ball.

 

San Diego Chargers

San Diego Chargers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 25 Jason Verrett CB TCU
2 50 Jeremiah Attaochu OLB Georgia Tech
3 89 Chris Watt OG Notre Dame
5 165 Ryan Carrethers DT Arkansas State
6 201 Marion Grice RB Arizona State
7 240 Tevin Reese WR Baylor

NFL.com

The Chargers needed a cornerback in a big way and got a great one in Jason Verrett. Speedy and versatile, Verrett can play both outside and in the slot. 

 

NFC North

Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 14 Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech
2 51 Ego Ferguson DT LSU
3 82 Will Sutton DT Arizona State
4 117 Ka'Deem Carey RB Arizona
4 131 Brock Vereen FS Minnesota
6 183 David Fales QB San Jose State
6 191 Pat O'Donnell P Miami
7 246 Charles Leno Jr. OT Boise State

NFL.com

The Bears started the draft nicely by selecting Kyle Fuller in the first round, however, the team's draft quickly went downhill after that with some questionable selections in the third and fourth rounds.

 

Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 10 Eric Ebron TE North Carolina
2 40 Kyle Van Noy OLB BYU
3 76 Travis Swanson C Arkansas
4 133 Nevin Lawson CB Utah State
4 136 Larry Webster DE Bloomsburg
5 158 Caraun Reid DT Princeton
6 189 T.J. Jones WR Notre Dame
7 229 Nate Freese K Boston College

NFL.com

Matthew Stafford must be a very happy man. The quarterback now has more weapons than he will know what to do with after the Lions selected Eric Ebron in the first round. Watch out for the Lions offense this season.

 

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 21 Ha Ha Clinton-Dix FS Alabama
2 53 Davante Adams WR Fresno State
3 85 Khyri Thornton DT Southern Miss
3 98 Richard Rodgers TE California
4 121 Carl Bradford OLB Arizona State
5 161 Corey Linsley C Ohio State
5 176 Jared Abbrederis WR Wisconsin
6 197 Demetri Goodson CB Baylor
7 236 Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley State

NFL.com

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Packers may be one of the best fits in the entire draft. Green Bay needed a safety who can play center field, and Clinton-Dix has the fluidity and athleticism to do just that.

 

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 9 Anthony Barr OLB UCLA
1 32 Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
3 72 Scott Crichton DE Oregon State
3 96 Jerick McKinnon RB Georgia Southern
5 145 David Yankey OG Stanford
6 182 Antone Exum CB Virginia Tech
6 184 Kendall James CB Maine
7 220 Shamar Stephen DT Connecticut
7 223 Brandon Watts OLB Georgia Tech
7 225 Jabari Price CB North Carolina

NFL.com

After grabbing pass-rushing specialist Anthony Barr early, the Vikings traded back into the first round to select Teddy Bridgewater. Now the team has its quarterback of the future and a viable signal-caller in front of Adrian Peterson.

 

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 6 Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
2 37 Ra'Shede Hageman DT Minnesota
3 68 Dezmen Southward FS Wisconsin
4 103 Devonta Freeman RB Florida State
4 139 Prince Shembo OLB Notre Dame
5 147 Ricardo Allen CB Purdue
5 168 Marquis Spruill ILB Syracuse
7 253 Yawin Smallwood OLB Connecticut
7 255 Tyler Starr OLB South Dakota

NFL.com

Jake Matthews will certainly solidify the offensive line in a big way, but the team's best selection was Ra'Shede Hageman in the second round. Stout against the run and athletic enough to rush the passer from the interior, he'll be a major defensive upgrade in Atlanta.

 

Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 28 Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State
2 60 Kony Ealy DE Missouri
3 92 Trai Turner OG LSU
4 128 Tre Boston SS North Carolina
5 148 Bene Benwikere CB San Jose State
6 204 Tyler Gaffney RB Stanford

NFL.com

Well, the Panthers got their receiver in Kelvin Benjamin. He may not have tremendous upside, but at least he'll provide Cam Newton with a big target on the outside.

 

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 20 Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State
2 58 Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
4 126 Khairi Fortt ILB California
5 167 Vinnie Sunseri SS Alabama
5 169 Ronald Powell OLB Florida
6 202 Tavon Rooks OT Kansas State

NFL.com

Selecting Brandin Cooks was a great move by New Orleans. It's never a bad idea to give Drew Brees some weapons, and Cooks will be a great replacement for the versatile Darren Sproles.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 7 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
2 38 Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE Washington
3 69 Charles Sims RB West Virginia
5 143 Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
5 149 Kevin Pamphile OT Purdue
6 185 Robert Herron WR Wyoming

NFL.com

The Buccaneers didn't pull any punches and went offense early. Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins will give this team's aerial attack some much-needed size and speed.

 

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 16 Zack Martin OT Notre Dame
2 34 Demarcus Lawrence DE Boise State
4 119 Anthony Hitchens OLB Iowa
5 146 Devin Street WR Pittsburgh
7 231 Ben Gardner DE Stanford
7 238 Will Smith OLB Texas Tech
7 248 Ahmad Dixon SS Baylor
7 251 Ken Bishop DT Northern Illinois
7 254 Terrance Mitchell CB Oregon

NFL.com

Even though many fans wanted Manziel, the Cowboys opted for the safe pick in Zack Martin. This was a great choice. Martin handled himself very well at left tackle at Notre Dame and has the athleticism and versatility to play multiple positions along the offensive line.

 

New York Giants

New York Giants' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 12 Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU
2 43 Weston Richburg C Colorado State
3 74 Jay Bromley DT Syracuse
4 113 Andre Williams RB Boston College
5 152 Nat Berhe SS San Diego State
5 174 Devon Kennard OLB USC
6 187 Bennett Jackson CB Notre Dame

NFL.com

The selection of Odell Beckham Jr. was fantastic for this offense. Pairing the athletic and physical Beckham with the equally athletic Victor Cruz will give Eli Manning a nice one-two punch this season.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 26 Marcus Smith OLB Louisville
2 42 Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
3 86 Josh Huff WR Oregon
4 101 Jaylen Watkins CB Florida
5 141 Taylor Hart DE Oregon
5 162 Ed Reynolds FS Stanford
7 224 Beau Allen DT Wisconsin

NFL.com

It was a rather interesting draft for the Eagles. The team decided to pass up big needs in the secondary early and reached for a linebacker instead. We'll have to wait and see how this all plays out.

 

Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
2 47 Trent Murphy OLB Stanford
3 66 Morgan Moses OT Virginia
3 78 Spencer Long OG Nebraska
4 102 Bashaud Breeland CB Clemson
5 142 Ryan Grant WR Tulane
6 186 Lache Seastrunk RB Baylor
7 217 Ted Bolser TE Indiana
7 228 Zach Hocker K Arkansas

NFL.com

Washington didn't have many early picks to work with, however, the selection of Morgan Moses was brilliant. He's a very solid right tackle, will start right away and help keep Robert Griffin III upright.

 

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 27 Deone Buchannon SS Washington State
2 52 Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame
3 84 Kareem Martin DE North Carolina
3 91 John Brown WR Pittsburgh State
4 120 Logan Thomas QB Virginia Tech
5 160 Ed Stinson DE Alabama
6 196 Walt Powell WR Murray State

NFL.com

The Cardinals didn't come away with an overwhelmingly impressive haul. Although, Deone Bucannon gives Arizona the possibility of having one of the league's best secondaries this season.

 

San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco 49ers' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 30 Jimmie Ward SS Northern Illinois
2 57 Carlos Hyde RB Ohio State
3 70 Marcus Martin C USC
3 77 Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin
3 100 Brandon Thomas OT Clemson
4 106 Bruce Ellington WR South Carolina
4 129 Dontae Johnson CB North Carolina State
5 150 Aaron Lynch DE South Florida
5 170 Keith Reaser CB Florida Atlantic
6 180 Kenneth Acker CB SMU
7 243 Kaleb Ramsey DE Boston College
7 245 Trey Millard FB Oklahoma

NFL.com

The Jimmie Ward pick in the first round made plenty of sense for this team. It filled a big need and got them a player who is a great schematic fit. Selecting Carlos Hyde in the second round was a bit iffy given the depth at the running back position in San Francisco.

 

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
2 45 Paul Richardson WR Colorado
2 64 Justin Britt OT Missouri
4 108 Cassius Marsh DE UCLA
4 123 Kevin Norwood WR Alabama
4 132 Kevin Pierre-Louis OLB Boston College
5 172 Jimmy Staten DT Middle Tennessee State
6 199 Garrett Scott OT Marshall
6 208 Eric Pinkins FS San Diego State
7 227 Kiero Small RB Arkansas

NFL.com

This was another draft by the Seahawks that was just strange. Paul Richardson and Justin Britt, although solid players, were huge reaches in Round 2. They'll probably both become stars anyway due to the recent draft success of this team.

 

St. Louis Rams

St. Louis Rams' Selections
Round Pick Selection Position College
1 2 Greg Robinson OT Auburn
1 13 Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh
2 41 Lamarcus Joyner CB Florida State
3 75 Tre Mason RB Auburn
4 110 Mo Alexander SS Utah State
6 188 E.J. Gaines CB Missouri
6 214 Garrett Gilbert QB SMU
7 226 Mitchell Van Dyk OT Portland State
7 241 C.B. Bryant FS Ohio State
7 249 Michael Sam DE Missouri
7 250 Demetrius Rhaney C Tennessee State

NFL.com

Greg Robinson was a solid first-round selection, however, Aaron Donald was even better. With Donald in the fold, this team could have one of the most ferocious defensive lines in the entire NFL this season.
