*** 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: Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
    The Texans could use a better slot receiver option, and I'm sure they're very familiar with Bruce Ellington, given all of the work they've done with Jadeveon Clowney.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Washington Redskins: Josh Mauro, DE/DT, Stanford
    The Redskins signed Jason Hatcher, but he's only a short-term solution on the defensive line.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
    The Falcons may search for their running back of the future in the middle rounds. Steven Jackson won't be around much longer if he keeps playing like he did in 2013.

  4. New York Jets: Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
    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 early in the draft.

  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton
    The Jaguars have just one interior defensive lineman who can rush the passer (Sen'Derrick Marks). They may want to add another to bolster their rotation.

  6. 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.

  7. Oakland Raiders: Terrance Mitchell, CB, Oregon
    The Raiders have plenty of holes on their roster, including the secondary. They'll need to add another corner.

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State
    The Vikings need some depth behind Adrian Peterson with Toby Gerhart gone.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Preston Brown, LB, Louisville
    The Bills added a couple of short-term options at linebacker this offseason. They'll need a starter for the future.

  10. St. Louis Rams: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
    Zach Mettenberger could fall this far after failing his Combine drug test. If so, the Rams will consider him because they won't care about his character issues.

    Pick change; previously Kelcy Quarles, DT

  11. Detroit Lions: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State
    The Lions have said that they plan on drafting a defensive tackle to push Nick Fairley. There's a chance that'll happen at No. 10 with Aaron Donald, but it's more likely to be a Round 2-4 pick.

  12. Tennessee Titans: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    A.J. McCarron won't be drafted at No. 16, and he probably won't go in the first two rounds. This is the right spot for him, as the Titans could use a possible quarterback of the future.

  13. New York Giants: Brock Vereen, S, Minnesota
    The Giants lost Will Hill to another suspension, so they'll look to add a safety in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously James Hurst, OT

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    The Jaguars missed out on Alex Mack, so they'll obviously be interested in finding a center during the draft.

  15. New York Jets: Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
    The Jets may spend a mid-round choice to upgrade their depth at inside linebacker, which is lacking right now.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming
    The Dolphins have shown a lot of interest in receivers throughout the pre-draft process, which is not surprising because they don't have much behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.

  17. Chicago Bears: George Uko, DT, USC
    Henry Melton is long gone, so if the Bears happen to miss out on Aaron Donald at No. 14, George Uko would be an option during Day 2.

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: James Gayle, DE/OLB, Virginia Tech
    The Steelers will be looking to add some pass-rushing depth with LaMarr Woodley gone.

  19. Dallas Cowboys: Cyril Richardson, G/OT, Baylor
    The Cowboys have to find some depth on the interior. Furthermore, Doug Free will be hitting free agency shortly, so that's another reason Dallas might take a lineman in the middle rounds.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Kelcy Quarles, DE/DT, South Carolina
    Darnell Dockett, 33 in May, is due $5.75 million this upcoming season. He's no longer the pass-rusher he once was, and Arizona lacks a long-term replacement for him.

    Pick change; previously Shamar Stephen, DE/DT

  21. Green Bay Packers: Will Clarke, DE/DT, West Virginia
    As mentioned earlier, the Packers are trying to get much faster on defense. They also need help up front, as B.J. Raji signed back on for just one more year.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Dontae Johnson, CB/S, N.C. State
    Philadelphia's defense was terrible for many reasons, one of which is the safety position. Malcolm Jenkins was signed, but help is still needed there. Nate Allen is just too unreliable to be one of the starters.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    The Bengals will keep sticking with Andy Dalton, but they'll need to develop a quarterback just in case Dalton can't get them over the first-round hump.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Ka'Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    The Chiefs will be looking to add a running back, as Knile Davis is not expected to be ready for the 2014 season.

  25. San Diego Chargers: Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech
    The Chargers currently lack a starting-caliber nose tackle, so they may use a Round 2-4 selection on one if they don't take Louis Nix at No. 25.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Kendall James, CB, Maine
    The Saints addressed their hole at safety with Jairus Byrd, but they still have some issues at cornerback. Jabari Greer was recently released, as he was coming off a torn ACL. Champ Bailey was signed, but he's just a short-term potential fix.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Coleman, WR

  27. Cleveland Browns: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama
    The Browns are candidates to double up on the receiver position, given that they don't have anything outside of Josh Gordon and Andrew Hawkins at the moment.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Dakota Dozier, G, Furman
    The Panthers have to draft multiple linemen - preferably ones who won't retire anytime soon.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Khairi Fortt, LB, California
    The 49ers don't have much behind Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman, so they could use a mid-round selection on depth at inside linebacker.

  30. New England Patriots: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
    With Aaron Hernandez gone forever and Rob Gronkowski coming off a serious knee injury, the Patriots may want to bring in another talented tight end.

  31. Denver Broncos: Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
    The Broncos could stand to find another interior pass-rusher to give them a nice rotation.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
    The Seahawks will also need depth at corner, given that Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond both left.

  33. Detroit Lions: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
    The Lions don't really have anything beyond Reggie Bush and Joique Bell at running back, and the former won't be around for very long.

  34. Baltimore Ravens: Zack Kerr, NT, Delaware
    The Ravens plan on moving Haloti Ngata outside, so they'll need to add some competition and/or depth at nose tackle.

  35. Houston Texans: Andre Williams, RB, Boston College
    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).

  36. Detroit Lions: Gabe Ikard, C, Oklahoma
    The Lions re-signed Dominic Raiola, but they need to find a long-term solution at center.

  37. New York Jets: E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
    The Jets could easily double dip at the cornerback position, given how troublesome that area is.

  38. Baltimore Ravens: Mike Davis, WR, Texas
    Baltimore added Steve Smith, which I thought was an awful move (go here for my NFL Free Agent Grades), but regardless of my opinion, the Ravens are still in the market for more help at receiver.

  39. Atlanta Falcons: Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia
    Tony Gonzalez could always return, but the Falcons need to add another tight end because chances are that he's gone for good.

  40. New England Patriots: Jordan Tripp, OLB, Montana
    The Patriots want to add a speedy linebacker, which is why they brought in Wesley Woodyard for a visit. They couldn't sign him, so they'll have to acquire one in the draft instead.
