2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 - Picks 17-32

Last update: Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012. Major changes.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2014 NFL Mock Draft is somewhat random.

  1. St. Louis Rams: David Yankey, OT, Stanford
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Chance Warmack, G and Kenny Vaccaro, S

    The Rams desperately need to protect the fragile Sam Bradford, or whomever they'll have starting at quarterback in the future (more on that later). David Yankey could start at left tackle, which would allow St. Louis to move Rodger Saffold to another position.

  2. Cleveland Browns: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Dion Jordan, DE

    Sheldon Brown is enjoying a great season, but he won't be able to play at this high level forever. He'll turn 35 a month prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, so Cleveland will need to find some young blood at cornerback.

  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dion Bailey, OLB, USC
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Johnthan Banks, CB

    The Buccaneers have a woeful pass defense because of their secondary, but a vacant third linebacker position doesn't help matters. They'll need to find someone worthy enough to play with Mason Foster and Lavonte David.

  4. Dallas Cowboys: Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): John Jenkins, NT

    Anthony Spencer is a free agent, so chances are the Cowboys will find another complement for DeMarcus Ware this offseason. If not, they'll definitely need to do it the following spring.

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: A.J. Johnson, ILB, Tennessee
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Sam Montgomery, DE

    The Bengals may not be able to use one of their first three picks this year on an inside linebacker, but they'll have to upgrade Rey Maualuga eventually because he's a major liability.

  6. Chicago Bears: Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Tyler Eifert, TE

    Two of Chicago's key defensive tackles, Henry Melton and Amobi Okoye, will be free agents in March. Losing Melton would be especially painful, so if that happens, they'll need to find a solution sometime soon.

  7. Denver Broncos: Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Jonathan Cooper, G

    Louis Nix is the best player available at this spot - I wanted to slot him about half-a-dozen picks earlier, so the Broncos are getting great value. They're also filling a dire position of need.

  8. San Francisco 49ers: Ryan Shazier, DE/OLB, Ohio State
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Matt Elam, S

    The 49ers can afford to take one of the best players available on the board with this pick because they have so few needs. They could stand to find depth at the rush linebacker position.

  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Alex Okafor, DE/OLB

    The Steelers have to get it right with one of these first-round five-techniques. Ziggy Hood and Cameron Heyward have shown very little throughout their brief NFL careers, so Pittsburgh will eventually have to bring someone in to challenge them.

  10. New York Giants: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Ezekiel Ansah, DE

    Prince Amukamara looks like the real deal, but the Giants need help across from him. Corey Webster, who has been torched often this year, could be cut this coming offseason because he'll be due $7 million in 2013.

  11. Baltimore Ravens: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): C.J. Mosley, ILB

    I've moved Robert Woods out of my 2013 NFL Mock Draft because of his immense struggles this year. Perhaps he can bounce back in 2013 and place himself back into first-round consideration. The Ravens could use a wideout with Anquan Boldin turning 34 a few months after the 2014 NFL Draft.

  12. Green Bay Packers: Ray Drew, DE/DT, Georgia
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Keenan Allen, WR

    Ryan Pickett and the oft-injured Mike Neal will have hit free agency by the time the 2014 NFL Draft rolls around. The Packers will need to find reinforcements up front.

  13. Atlanta Falcons: Deshazor Everett, CB, Texas A&M
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Barrett Jones, G/C/OT

    It's very possible the Falcons will be using an early-selection on a cornerback in the near future. Brent Grimes will be a free agent after this season; Dunta Robinson will be due $10 million in 2014; while Asante Samuel will be entering his mid-30s.

  14. Houston Texans: Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Justin Hunter, WR

    The Texans were heavily considering a right tackle in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Maybe they'll take one two years later.

  15. New England Patriots: Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Tavon Austin, WR

    New England's problems at safety are well-documented. Bill Belichick will need to find help at the position sometime soon.

  16. St. Louis Rams: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Chance Warmack, G and Kenny Vaccaro, S

    The Rams, drafting in the Redskins' spot, will probably know what they have in Sam Bradford following the 2013 season. Bradford will be due $14 million in 2014, so St. Louis will either have to give him a new contract or pull the plug.

    Logan Thomas is very raw, but he's still projected to go in the first round at some point because of his immense upside.

Enough with the Offensive linemen early for the Bengals. I don't care how good that Center is from USC. They can get a Center in the 5th or after. They can get an OT 4th or after. Too many ???? in the secondary for the future not to get young guys now. Like Dennard round 1 if he falls to 24.
1.Denard CB
2. Breeland CB
3.Sutton DT
4.Hurst OT
5. Stork C
To Hell with the QB too, not a big fan of Dalton choking in playoffs, but Brees wasn't looking like he was catching on and San Diego jumped on a QB and Franchised Brees till they couldn't no more and let Brees walk to NO and win a SB. This won't be the only draft with QB's if Dalton bungles it away again....

Very good read. Love Mack going to the Rams at #2 but at #13 they must get a safety. That secondary is horrid and must get help. Would like to see another corner in the second round then add O line and a QB for the rest of the draft. Also snag that Copeland kid, would be a monster lead blocker for Stacey.

Why do you keep going on about the Packers losing Dietich-Smith? He is a mediocre player who the Packers already have a replacement for in JC Tretter.

This would be an excellent draft for the Lions except they won't draft a 2nd WR

Definitely seeing Zimmerman in a colts jersey. First time someone agrees.

I think they did a good job, but why would the jaguars give up the 3rd pick for just a 1st and 2nd round picks.

Marquise Lee will be a bust. Injury problems + average size + catches the ball with his body = bust. If the Browns take him I will be pissed.

I liked your mock on Texans till the 3rd round and below.

No no no no... Vikings would never trade up for anyone, none the less a quarterback. If anything they would trade back as spielman hinted they want at least 10 selections by the end of the draft

sorry guys, this mock is not a good fit for Pittsburgh, Every pick, I see as not BPA with the exception of Moncrief. Will the folks that are proficient at doing this exercise STOP with the Steelers need OL help. The Truth is DL is more of a vacancy. Ebron has a nice upside but his concentration is suspect, and Pittsburgh starts Heath Miller. Verret has a thin frame, although a tough competitor. I would rather they draft Deonne Buchanon and then a CB at 97. Buchannon was in for a visit, and I just think he hits like a STeeler safety. Terrance Brooks would be another good option. The one thing I do like is that finally people are seing Joel Botonio as a fringe first rounder, I had him low 40's back in February.

The Bears will not take Clinton-Dix in the first. You had the right school, wrong player. They will take C.J. Mosely because he is by far the best Ilb in this draft and it can be argued that Clinton-Dix is the third best player at his position. The Bears do not draft defensive backs in the first round. Ever. Mike Brown - second round. Charles Tillman - second round. Major Wright - third round.
