The 2014 NFL draft came and went, with three days of young athletes receiving phone calls bearing news that their dreams were now a reality and riches were on the way. Now, it is up to each rookie to fulfill their potential and make an impact in the league.

Our perception of each and every player shifts immediately. They are on a team, and that means a spot on the depth chart is on its way. The top players are now potential starters, Sleeper picks are second- and third-stringers and late-round draft picks are fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Here is the full list of results from the NFL draft, as well as a few predictions on how some of the top players might fare in their rookie seasons.

Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, Houston Texans

Clowney was the most fearsome player in the NFL draft, but even he knows that he might not be the biggest terror on his new team. That honor belongs to J.J. Watt, and Clowney said he was ready to play follow the leader, as per Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.

"I talked to J.J. Watt," Clowney said. "He's like, 'Man I'm glad you're being a part of the Houston Texans, I'm ready to show you around.' He's gonna be like a leader to me, I'm gonna follow him and get ready to get going."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was glad to hear Clowney take a measured approach in one of his first post-draft interviews.

Clowney knows that he has off-the-charts athletic ability, but that it must be paired with a deeper understanding of the NFL game.

If the Texans want to force offensive tackles into early retirement, then defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel would do well to pair up Watt and Clowney on the same side of their 3-4 front as often as possible. Watt can draw blockers and leave Clowney in one-on-one situations on the edge, and this could pave the way for a double-digit sack season in his rookie year.

 

Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars shocked the world by taking Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick. They had glaring holes at multiple positions, and Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater were both thought to be more NFL-ready than Bortles, who is a raw talent.

However, ESPN's Ron Jaworski—never one to miss an opportunity to gush about a college quarterback—thought the Jaguars made a fine selection. From an interview on the Mike & Mike radio show, via ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco:

From a strategic standpoint of a team, I don't care if it's a quarterback or a tackle or a wide receiver, if that's the guy you like, go get him. Obviously Gus Bradley, [GM David] Caldwell, they all like Blake Bortles and he clearly to me is the kind of guy you can build your franchise around. 

Although he may be a franchise quarterback someday and doesn't face strong competition with his new team, he's still a player who needs to be brought along slowly. The Jaguars did him a solid by drafting wide receivers Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee, but rookie receivers struggle picking up complex NFL route trees and don't start to reach their potential until their second or third year in the league.

Of course, those two don't have the luxury of waiting in the wings like Bortles does, but it would a complete mess if all three had to contribute from the get-go. Then again, the Jaguars offense was a mess all last season, so maybe nobody will notice the difference.

Bortles shouldn't play until the latter half of the NFL season barring injury or a meltdown from Chad Henne, and his numbers will be pedestrian at best while the offense matures around him. No shame in that, as this is all part of the learning experience for the talented quarterback.

 

Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sammy Watkins was the first-choice wide receiver in the NFL draft, and nobody had any reason to expect otherwise. Watkins is a burner and should be a star in the league, but Evans isn't likely to be far behind him.

Just look at how close their numbers were in 2013.

2013 NCAA Stats, Watkins vs. Evans
Player Games Receptions Yards Yards per Catch Touchdowns
Mike Evans 13 69 1,394 20.2 12
Sammy Watkins 13 101 1,464 14.5 12

Sports-reference.com

Watkins caught more short and intermediate passes in the Tigers offense, but Evans was an undeniable big-play threat.

Evans did have a superior passer in Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M, but Tajh Boyd was no slouch slinging the ball at Clemson either. Evans is also 6'5" and 231 pounds, making him one of the largest wide receivers in the league. It's little wonder there was an emphasis on Richard Sherman-esque cornerbacks with a player like Evans looming.

This is no knock on Watkins, but Evans might be better suited to contribute right away in the league. This is especially true if EJ Manuel struggles in his second season in the league.

Evans will produce a high-tower tandem at wide receiver with Vincent Jackson, one of the best wideouts in the league. ESPN Stats & Info noted the unusual tandem and just how difficult it is for tall wide receivers to make an impact in the league.

Still, not all of those towering wideouts are bestowed with the strong hands and natural ability of Evans. Evans will take some time to get a foothold in the NFL, but he could be a threat to get 10-plus catches in a game, let alone a season, by his second year in the league.
