After the longest draft process in NFL history, the 2014 class has finally turned from evaluated prospects into expectation-driven professionals. The draft saw 256 prospects drafted and many more signed after Day 3.
While every team hopes to hit on all of its draft picks and signings, the reality is each team will find that two or three of its picks won’t last long in the NFL. And for at least a third of the top 100 picks, teams will find those players don’t contribute nearly as much as the hopes that now rest on their shoulders.
Some teams try to stick to their board too much and draft players who aren’t an ideal schematic, situational or locker-room fit for their organization.
While it’s unclear what each offensive or defensive coordinator has in mind for his respective team’s draft picks, I’ve done my best to use my evaluations and the prospects that come with each selection to find 10 rookies who may end up wishing they got drafted elsewhere.
