Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2014 NFL Mock Draft is based on my NFL Power Rankings.


    *** This 2014 NFL Mock Draft (4 rounds) was updated Jan. 29. 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: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
    As mentioned earlier, teams that spend early picks on quarterbacks often double up on offense. If the Texans decide to do that, they could certainly upgrade the right tackle position, which is a big problem area for them.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Van Noy, DE/OLB

  2. Washington Redskins: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT, Notre Dame
    The Redskins need help all over their defensive, including up front. They had no push from their defensive line this past season.

    Pick change; previously Loucheiz Purifoy, CB

  3. Cleveland Browns: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
    The Browns desperately need a No. 2 receiver to upgrade Greg “Mr. Dependable” Little. There will be tons of options for them in Round 2.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
    No quarterback yet? Well, any signal-caller would be a reach at this point. Besides, as I mentioned, the Raiders need to add blue-chip players to their roster because they don’t have any currently under contract. Aaron Donald, who was a force at the Senior Bowl, would help Oakland’s lacking interior pass rush.

    Pick change; previously Derek Carr, QB



  5. Atlanta Falcons: Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA
    The Falcons have some major issues on the offensive line. Everyone wants to look at left tackle, but the guard position is an area that must be upgraded as well.

  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
    Mike Glennon’s options are rather limited once you get beyond Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. The Buccaneers will be searching for a new No. 3 receiver this offseason.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    Maurice Jones-Drew is an impending free agent (go here to check out my 2014 NFL Free Agent Rankings). He’ll likely want to leave such a terrible situation, so the Jaguars will need to find a new running back.

  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, happens to be a free agent.

    Pick change; previously Tajh Boyd, QB

  9. Buffalo Bills: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame
    This offseason has to be all about building around E.J. Manuel. Buffalo already upgraded its offensive line; now it has to find a potent intermediate weapon for the second-year quarterback.

  10. Tennessee Titans: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
    There have been reports indicating that Chris Johnson will be cut this offseason. If that’s the case, Tennessee will obviously be searching for a new lead running back.

  11. New York Giants: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State
    The Giants are another team that will be hunting for a new running back. Andre Brown is a free agent, while David Wilson may not be ready for the 2014 season.

    Pick change; previously Antonio Richardson, OT

  12. St. Louis Rams: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    Here’s more secondary help for the Rams, who will need to do something about the cornerback position with the disappointing Cortland Finnegan due $9 million next year.

    Pick change; previously Aaron Donald, DT



  13. Detroit Lions: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    Dominic Raiola has seemingly been on Detroit’s roster forever, but he’ll be a 35-year-old free agent in March. The Lions will probably bring in a new center.

  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
    The Steelers have to address the cornerback position. Ike Taylor was dreadful this past year, as the receivers he battled – save for A.J. Green, oddly enough – posted season-high totals against him.

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
    Dallas had horrible safety play all year. An upgrade in this area would have allowed it to beat Philadelphia in Week 17.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
    It should be quite apparent that the Ravens desperately need help at receiver. Neither Jacoby Jones nor Marlon Brown should be a No. 2 wideout in the NFL. Think Joe Flacco misses Anquan Boldin?

  17. New York Jets: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn
    The Jets have a great interior pass rush, but they need to become more potent on the outside. Dee Ford followed up with his dominant performance in the national championship with a great Senior Bowl. I don’t know if he can sneak into the first round, but he’ll definitely be chosen early on Day 2 at the latest.

    Pick change; previously Davante Adams, WR

  18. Miami Dolphins: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington
    The Dolphins don’t trust Lamar Miller at all, while Daniel Thomas isn’t very good. They’ll likely be searching for a new starting running back this spring.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Moses, OT

  19. Chicago Bears: Lamarcus Joyner, S, Florida State
    As written in the Bears team needs page, Major Wright is a free agent. Chris Conte, well, I don’t think Chicago fans are going to forget his ineptitude in the win-and-in season finale anytime soon.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Van Noy, DE/OLB, BYU
    The Cardinals, who typically go with the top player on their board, will almost definitely be interested in someone like Kyle Van Noy, as they really need an upgrade at outside linebacker across from Sam Acho. John Abraham, 36 in May, won’t be effective much longer.

    Pick change; previously Trevor Reilly, DE/OLB



  21. Green Bay Packers: Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford
    The Packers need pass-rushing depth in the event that Clay Matthews gets hurt again. As Charlie Campbell reported, the Packers are very interested in Trent Murphy.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Dion Bailey, S, USC
    Philadelphia’s defense was terrible for many reasons, one of which is the safety position. Nate Allen is an impending free agent, while Patrick Chung is absolutely terrible.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
    Mike Zimmer did a great job of getting the most out of Terence Newman and Pacman Jones, but he’s moved on to be the head coach in Minnesota. The Bengals will have to compensate with some new corners.

    Bradley Roby is slotted pretty low in this mock because he played poorly this previous season. He’s also had some off-the-field issues. I think the Bengals would take a chance on him though.

  24. San Francisco 49ers: Craig Loston, S, LSU
    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 heading into free agency.



  25. San Diego Chargers: Michael Sam, DE/OLB, Missouri
    The Chargers were so desperate for help at rush linebacker that they signed Dwight Freeney last offseason. The former Colt is obviously not a long-term solution for the team’s pass-rushing woes. He wasn’t even a short-term answer.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Saints have some issues at cornerback with Jabari Greer’s status being uncertain. Greer, who tore his ACL in November, is due $4.4 million next season as a 32-year-old.

    Pick change; previously Christian Jones, ILB

  27. Indianapolis Colts: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
    The Colts need help all over their defense, including the linebacking corps, where the injury-prone Pat Angerer will be a free agent this March.

    Pick change; previously Gabe Jackson, G

  28. Carolina Panthers: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
    Jordan Gross is a free agent this season. He has said he’ll only play for Carolina, but he also discussed retirement. Even if he comes back, the Panthers will need to think about bringing in a long-term solution at left tackle, as well as an immediate upgrade over right tackle Byron Bell, who couldn’t block Junior Galette.

    Pick change; previously Jackson Jeffcoat, DE

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    Anquan Boldin and Mario Manningham will both be free agents next March. The 49ers will need a new receiver to complement Michael Crabtree.

    Pick change; previously Paul Richardson, WR

  30. New England Patriots: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State
    Ryan Wendell, an impending free agent, has been most responsible for Tom Brady’s poor pass protection.

    Pick change; previously Bryan Stork, C

  31. Denver Broncos: Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
    Eric Decker, coming off a great season, is set to hit free agency (go here to check out my 2014 NFL Free Agent Rankings). He could be too rich for Denver’s blood considering all of the money the front office will have dedicated to Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Fuller, CB

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
    The Seahawks suddenly have some issues at cornerback, with Brandon Browner facing a long suspension and Walter Thurmond heading for free agency. Stanley Jean-Baptiste is the top of tall corner Seattle likes.

    Pick change; previously Cyril Richardson, G
