Last update: Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Major changes in all 5 rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

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


    *** 2014 NFL Mock Draft (5 rounds) was updated March 11. 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: Carl Bradford, DE/OLB, Arizona State
    The Texans would kill two stones with one bird with this pick, as Emmitt would say. They need to upgrade their pass rush and find some help at inside linebacker. Carl Bradford would satisfy the former, which would allow Brooks Reed to move inside.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

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

    Pick change; previously Ryan Shazier, LB

  3. Cleveland Browns: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State
    The Browns planned on courting Ben Tate in free agency, but that was when Michael Lombardi was in charge. As for now, Carlos Hyde is the type of running back Cleveland is looking for per our NFL Draft Team Rumors page.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
    The Raiders obviously have to go quarterback early in the 2014 NFL Draft. If they pass on one at No. 5, they’ll almost certainly select one here.



  5. St. Louis Rams: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
    The Rams acquired this selection from the proposed Jadeveon Clowney trade, as noted in Round 1. Bradley Roby’s stock is on the rise after a strong Combine. St. Louis will definitely consider him atop Round 2, as the disappointing Cortland Finnegan due $9 million next year.

  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
    The Buccaneers could use a stronger intermediate option for their new quarterback. Teams that draft new signal-callers often double up on offense, so it’s a good thing that Jace Amaro is one of the top players available.

    Pick change; previously Derek Carr, QB

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
    Bill Polian recently stated that he believes Jimmy Garoppolo will be a first-round pick. I’m not sure if that’ll happen, but Garoppolo definitely has a shot to be chosen in the second round. The Jaguars have to take a quarterback early for obvious reasons.

    Pick change; previously Tre Mason, RB

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA
    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.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
    The Bills add yet another play-maker for E.J. Manuel, who needs all the help he can get. The tight end position definitely needs to be upgraded.

    Pick change; previously Jace Amaro, TE

  10. Tennessee Titans: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
    The Titans will be looking for some long-term solutions at tackle. Michael Roos will be a free agent in 2015, while David Stewart could be released this offseason because he’s due $6.4 million next year.

  11. New York Giants: Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State
    New York could double dip in the trenches. Justin Tuck is a free agent, so the Giants will need another pass-rusher if he moves on.

  12. St. Louis Rams: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois
    St. Louis’ defense came on late in the season, but it struggled at times during the year for a couple of reasons. One was the play of safety Rodney McLeod. He wasn’t terrible, but it’s clear that the Rams need to find an upgrade next to T.J. McDonald. Jimmie Ward is arguably the top defensive player available who makes sense for St. Louis.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Matthews, WR



  13. Detroit Lions: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
    We all saw what happens to Detroit’s offense when Calvin Johnson is unavailable. The Lions need an insurance policy of sorts. Besides, having a solid No. 2 across from Megatron would make the Lions’ scoring attack even more explosive.

    Pick change; previously Jimmie Ward, S

  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: Lamarcus Joyner, CB/S, Florida State
    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: Dion Bailey, S, USC
    Dallas had horrible safety play throughout the 2013 season. An upgrade in this area would have allowed it to beat Philadelphia in Week 17.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Marcus Martin, C, USC
    Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and others all left, but perhaps the player the Ravens missed most was Matt Birk. His replacements at center have been horrible. Almost anyone would be an upgrade.

  17. New York Jets: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame
    Kellen Winslow proved to be an insufficient replacement for Dustin Keller, so this is a position New York will look to upgrade this offseason.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
    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 Bishop Sankey, RB

  19. Chicago Bears: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
    Chicago was able to re-sign Tim Jennings recently, but Charles Tillman’s contract is expiring soon. The Bears have to deal with Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford twice per year, so they’ll definitely look to upgrade their secondary with multiple selections.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Brandon Thomas, OT/G, Clemson
    The Cardinals are going to try to sign Jared Veldheer this offseason. If they miss on him and the other top tackles, they’ll have to address the position early in the 2014 NFL Draft.



  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: Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson
    The Eagles just re-signed Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper – go here for my Free Agent Grades – but Maclin was brought back for just one year, while DeSean Jackson could be traded.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Van Noy, DE/OLB, BYU
    The Bengals will need pass-rushing help if Michael Johnson leaves via free agency. The Bengals like for their strongside linebackers to rush the passer (James Harrison). Here’s Harrison’s eventual replacement.

  24. San Francisco 49ers: Keith McGill, CB, Utah
    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.



  25. San Diego Chargers: Bashaud Breeland, CB, Clemson
    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.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    The Saints could use another receiver. Marques Colston disappointed this season prior to the Carolina victory, yet he’s still New Orleans’ top option by a wide margin. Lance Moore was recently cut.

  27. Indianapolis Colts: David Yankey, G/OT, Stanford
    Adding an offensive linemen who can play multiple positions would be a good idea for the Colts, who have issues up front.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    Ron Rivera talked at length about upgrading the receiver position during the Combine press conference. He even refused to say that Steve Smith will be back next year. The Panthers were already hurting at wideout with Smith; now they may need two upgrades.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Thomas, OT/G

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina
    The 49ers have Tank Carradine waiting in the wings, but with four second-day picks, they can afford to go with the best player available who fits their scheme perfectly.

    Pick change; previously Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE

  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.

  31. Denver Broncos: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
    You have to wonder what the Broncos plan on doing at cornerback in 2014 and beyond. Champ Bailey and Quentin Jammer will be 36 and 35, respectively, in June. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, meanwhile, will be a free agent in March.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
    Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin are both impending free agents, but the Seahawks can do better at receiver anyway. I’m sure Cris Carter would agree.
