    *** This 2014 NFL Mock Draft (4 rounds) was updated Feb. 12. 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: Brandon Thomas, G/OT, Clemson
    Wade Smith, now 33, is past his prime and no longer effective. He was a liability this past season.

    Pick change; previously E.J. Gaines, CB

  2. Washington Redskins: Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
    ESPN loves talking up London Fletcher by saying he’s still great, but he could barely move. He was one of the reasons the Redskins were so inept on defense. He has announced his retirement anyway.

    Pick change; previously Jared Abbrederis, WR

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
    The Falcons have three defensive tackles with expiring contracts, including Corey Peters, a run-stuffer who tore his Achilles in December. A replacement is needed.

  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
    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.

    Pick change; previously Kelcy Quarles, DT



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Keith McGill, CB, Utah
    The Jaguars definitely need some help at corner to help combat Andrew Luck.

  6. Cleveland Browns: Terrence Brooks, S, Florida State
    Here’s some secondary help for the Browns, who could use someone to challenge Tashaun Gipson at safety.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Larsen, C

  7. Oakland Raiders: Cyril Richardson, G/OT, Baylor
    The Raiders need multiple upgrades on their offensive line. Lucas Nix might be the worst starting guard in the NFL, so he needs to be replaced.

    Pick change; previously Joel Bitonio, G/OT

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina
    The Vikings used one of three first-rounders on a defensive tackle last year, but they may have to double dip at the position with Kevin Williams hitting free agency.

    Pick change; previously Calvin Barnett, DT

  9. Buffalo Bills: Trevor Reilly, DE/OLB, Utah
    Jerry Hughes’ great 2013 campaign came out of nowhere. The Bills should probably obtain some insurance just in case it was a fluke. They could use depth at linebacker anyway.

  10. St. Louis Rams: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State
    The Rams probably won’t go offensive tackle early, but they’ll have to at some point considering the uncertainty surrounding Jake Long.

  11. Detroit Lions: Rob Herron, WR, Wyoming
    The Lions could very easily double dip at receiver in the 2014 NFL Draft to help turn depth at this position into a strength.

    Pick change; previously Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB

  12. Tennessee Titans: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
    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.

    Pick change; previously A.J. McCarron, QB



  13. New York Giants: Richard Rodgers, TE, California
    The Giants signed Brandon Myers to serve as a dependable intermediate target for Eli Manning, but he failed. Perhaps they’ll draft someone instead.

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Brent Urban, DE/DT Virginia
    Surprise, surprise, Tyson Alualu struggled at left end in Jacksonville’s new scheme. An upgrade here is needed for the league’s worst pass rush.

  15. New York Jets: E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
    Here’s more help for the secondary. Antonio Cromartie will be a cap casualty this offseason.

    Pick change; previously JuWuan James, OT

  16. Miami Dolphins: Calvin Barnett, DT, Oklahoma State
    Both Randy Starks and Paul Soliai happen to be impending free agents. The Dolphins will need to re-sign either Starks or Soliai and acquire one more interior lineman for depth.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Grimble, TE

  17. Chicago Bears: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
    Matt Forte had 363 touches last year. The Bears may want to bring in another running back who can do similar things in the passing game just to give Forte a break.

    Pick change; previously De’Anthony Thomas, RB

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Deandre Coleman, DT, California
    The Steelers need some help up front. Cameron Heyward finally improved this year, but Ziggy Hood continued to struggle.

  19. Dallas Cowboys: Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise State
    Here’s another upgrade for the defensive line. With Anthony Spencer hitting free agency, Dallas will need a new pass-rusher across from DeMarcus Ware.

    Pick change; previously Aaron Lynch, DE

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU
    Rashard Mendenhall is a free agent, but that’s for the best because he stinks. The Cardinals have to find someone to split carries with Andre Ellington.



  21. Green Bay Packers: Tre Boston, S, North Carolina
    Is there any doubt that the Packers need to improve their secondary? Their defensive backfield blew so many coverages throughout the season, and they had no chance against Colin Kaepernick.

    Pick change; previously Joel Bitonio, G/OT

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Terrance Mitchell, CB, Oregon
    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 season.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State
    The Bengals need insurance at defensive end. Geno Atkins is coming off a torn ACL, while Domata Peko is entering his contract year.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
    The Chiefs found out the hard way this past season that they have very little behind Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.



  25. San Diego Chargers: Michael Sam, DE/OLB, Missouri
    I think this is a good spot for Michael Sam. The Chargers took a chance on another linebacker who was a “distraction” last year, and Manti Te’o didn’t exactly ruin things. San Diego is a relatively small market, so that helps.

    Besides, Sam fills a need. 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.

    Go here for more on Michael Sam’s draft stock.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Fleming, OT

  26. New Orleans Saints: Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama
    The Saints need some help across from Junior Galette at outside linebacker, as they can’t rely on Victor Butler.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Khairi Fortt, ILB, California
    The Browns have a great front seven, but the one liability in the group is Craig Robertson, who was abused in coverage this past season.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
    Greg Hardy will definitely be missed if the Panthers can’t retain him this offseason. Here’s some help if that happens to be the case.

    Pick change; previously Devonta Freeman, RB

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
    San Francisco’s group of cornerbacks isn’t very strong, as Carlos Rogers has understandably declined at 32. He’s due $6.25 million next year, so the team could cut ties with him. The 49ers extended Tramaine Brock, but they’ll still need corner help.

    Pick change; previously Bryan Stork, C

  30. New England Patriots: Ross Cockrell, CB, Duke
    The Patriots will need depth at cornerback behind Alfonzo Dennard and Logan Ryan if free agent Aqib Talib walks.

    Pick change; previously Bene Benwikere, CB

  31. Denver Broncos: Mike Davis, WR, Texas
    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 Cody Hoffman, WR

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Anthony Steen, G, Alabama
    The Seahawks have multiple areas of concern on their offensive line, including both guard spots. Imagine how potent Russell Wilson would be with upgraded protection.
