2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 3

Last update: Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Major changes in all 5 rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

*** This mock draft will be updated at least once per week (Tuesday afternoons and other times for important events.). Check out old versions of this 2014 NFL Mock Draft in the archived mock draft section. Follow @walterfootball for updates. ***

  1. Houston Texans: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
    The Texans have officially lost Ben Tate, who signed with the Browns. This was expected all along though, so the team has been looking at new options behind Arian Foster (Andre Brown signed on for just one year). Tre Mason would make a lot of sense for them atop Round 3.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Carl Bradford, DE/OLB

  2. Washington Redskins: Carl Bradford, LB, Arizona State
    Carl Bradford can play both outside and inside linebacker in a 3-4. The Redskins need some help at both positions - especially the former next year if Brian Orakpo leaves - so he makes a ton of sense for them.

    Pick change; previously Terrence Brooks, S

  3. Oakland Raiders: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    The Raiders will draft a quarterback at some point in the first few rounds, as they need a long-term solution beyond Matt Schaub. A.J. McCarron fits the system.

    Pick change; previously Paul Richardson, WR

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State
    The Falcons addressed a bunch of needs this offseason, but one hole that remains is the safety position, as the team recently cut Thomas DeCoud.

  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dominique Easley, DT, Florida
    Considering that they have to battle Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton twice per season, the Buccaneers need to find someone besides Gerald McCoy to apply an interior pass rush.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington
    The Jaguars signed Toby Gerhart, but perhaps they'll add another running back in Rounds 3-4. They have to know that Gerhart can't possibly be the sole featured back.

    Pick change; previously Tre Mason, RB

  7. Cleveland Browns: Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford
    There's speculation that the Browns could take a right tackle early in the 2014 NFL Draft in order to move Mitchell Schwartz to guard.

    Pick change; previously Bishop Sankey, RB

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
    The Vikings can help their new quarterback (as well as Adrian Peterson) with improved interior offensive line play. Charlie Johnson, the weak link on the unit, was retained, but he can't be a starter anymore. Vladimir Ducasse was added, but he may just be a backup.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Bashaud Breeland, CB, Clemson
    The Bills have brought in a bunch of cornerbacks, so that might be a sign that they're going to take one somewhat early in the 2014 NFL Draft. Perhaps Corey Graham will move to safety.

  10. New York Giants: Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State
    The Giants signed Rashad Jennings, but they still need another running back. They can't rely on just Jennings until David Wilson returns.

  11. St. Louis Rams: Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh
    The Rams should think about drafting a quarterback on Day 2 just in case Sam Bradford continues to be mediocre (and injury-prone).

    Pick change; previously Zach Mettenberger, QB

  12. Detroit Lions: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    The Lions re-signed Dominic Raiola, but they need to find a long-term solution at center.

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
    Jim Harbaugh loves to run multiple-tight end formations. The 49ers have Vernon Davis and Vance McDonald on the roster, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a steal here and fits San Francisco's offense so well that Harbaugh may not want to resist. Besides, Davis will be a 32-year-old free agent after the 2015 season.

  14. Dallas Cowboys: Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU
    The Cowboys desperately need a defensive tackle, as they don't have much around Henry Melton.

  15. Baltimore Ravens: Terrance West, RB, Towson
    Given Ray Rice's struggles and legal issues, the Ravens may use a pick in the middle rounds on a new running back.

  16. New York Jets: Lamarcus Joyner, CB/S, Florida State
    Poor Rex Ryan is frustrated that his team whiffed on all of the top cornerbacks (things got very bad for him in the April Fools Mock Draft). The Jets will have to address the position in the draft.

    Pick change; previously Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB

  17. Miami Dolphins: Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State
    As noted earlier, the Dolphins must make multiple upgrades on their offensive line. If they want to use Zack Martin at guard, they could take a right tackle later on.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Fleming, OT

  18. Chicago Bears: Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
    If the Bears can't retain Henry Melton and happen to miss out on Aaron Donald at No. 14, Anthony Johnson would be an option during Day 2.

  19. Cleveland Browns: Christian Jones, LB, Florida State
    The Browns had two holes to fill at inside linebacker once they cut D'Qwell Jackson. Signing Karlos Dansby fills one of the needs, but Cleveland needs a long-term option at the position.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Craig Loston, S, LSU
    The Cardinals could use some safety help, as free agent Yeremiah Bell is thinking about retirement.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
    The Packers lost James Jones to the Raiders, so they may want to add another receiver.

    Pick change; previously Cody Latimer, WR

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaylen Watkins, CB, Florida
    Cary Williams hasn't been very good and will probably be released next offseason (he's due $6.5 million in 2015), while Bradley Fletcher can't be counted on to start 16 games in a year. I liked the Nolan Carroll signing, but Philadelphia will still probably add another corner.

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
    The Chiefs need some help in their receiving corps, especially with Dexter McCluster now in Tennessee.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
    The Bengals lost Anthony Collins in free agency, so they'll have to look elsewhere for a long-term solution at left tackle.

  25. San Diego Chargers: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
    The Chargers' defense made every single quarterback look like a Pro Bowler early in the year. They have a dreadful cornerback situation, which could be remedied with the use of an early-round pick in May's draft.

    Pick change; previously Loucheiz Purifoy, CB

  26. Indianapolis Colts: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    The Colts managed to retain Vontae Davis, but they still have a big need at corner. If you don't believe me, go back and watch the Kansas City-Indianapolis playoff game.

    Pick change; previously Cyril Richardson, G/OT

  27. New Orleans Saints: Ka'Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    The Saints lost Darren Sproles, so they may want to find another pass-catching running back in the 2014 NFL Draft.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
    The Panthers obviously could double up - or even triple up - on receivers during the early stages of the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Cody Latimer, WR

  29. New England Patriots: DaQuan Jones, NT, Penn State
    This pick makes sense even with the Ra'Shede Hageman first-round selection. Vince Wilfork was re-signed, but he won't be around much longer. The Patriots need a long-term solution at nose tackle.

  30. San Francisco 49ers: Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
    The secondary is a troublesome area for the 49ers, so they may spend multiple selections on the cornerback position.

  31. Denver Broncos: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas
    The Broncos lost Robert Ayers, so they might be interested in addressing their depth at defensive end, all while finding a potential successor for DeMarcus Ware.

    Pick change; previously Jarvis Landry, WR

  32. Minnesota Vikings: Telvin Smith, OLB, Florida State
    The Vikings have just one sure thing at linebacker, and that would be Chad Greenway, who is coming off an awful season.

  33. Pittsburgh Steelers: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
    The Steelers signed Lance Moore to replace Jerricho Cotchery, but he's just a temporary solution.

  34. Green Bay Packers: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
    Mike McCarthy told the media that he wants to draft a quarterback early. Can you blame him after what happened this past season?

    Pick change; previously Will Clarke, DE/DT

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Thomas, OT/G, Clemson
    The Ravens knew all along that they'd lose Michael Oher in free agency. He's gone, so they need a new right tackle because Ricky Wagner cannot be allowed to start.

    Brandon Thomas drops to the bottom of Round 3 because of his torn ACL, but the Ravens would be lucky to have him, as he could bolster the offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Jack Mewhort, OT

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Ahmad Dixon, S, Baylor
    The 49ers spent a first-round pick on a safety last year, but they may have to use another selection on one with Donte Whitner signed on with the Browns.
