    *** 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: E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
    There are a few areas the Texans need to address outside of the quarterback position. They need to find a new right tackle, upgrade the outside linebacker position and acquire a better nickel.

    Pick change; previously Jaylen Watkins, CB

  2. Washington Redskins: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
    The Redskins must improve their defense, but they also have to focus on upgrading the receiver position. A No. 2 wideout is needed.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Coleman, 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: Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU
    Akeem Spence had a disappointing rookie campaign playing next to Gerald McCoy, capped off by an arrest for marijuana possession. The Buccaneers may want to bring in another interior defensive lineman.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Johnson, DT



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Chris Watt, G, Notre Dame
    The Jaguars have a major hole at left guard, so they’ll have to shore that up to help protect their new quarterback.

  6. Cleveland Browns: Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
    The Browns had a great front seven this past season, but the one liability in the group is Craig Robertson, who was abused in coverage. That’s why Cleveland could double up on inside linebackers.

  7. Oakland Raiders: Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    The Raiders will need a running back if they lose either Darren McFadden or Rashad Jennings in free agency this spring.

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
    With Toby Gerhart heading for free agency, the Vikings will need to bring in a new running back to spell Adrian Peterson.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
    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: Dakota Dozier, G, Furman
    The Rams already addressed the offensive line, but they’ll have to do something about the guard position if Rodger Saffold isn’t retained.

  11. Detroit Lions: Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise State
    Willie Young is a free agent. If he’s not retained, Detroit will have to find someone to compete with Devin Taylor to rush the passer across from Ziggy Ansah.

  12. Tennessee Titans: Terrance West, RB, Towson
    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.



  13. New York Giants: Christian Kirksey, LB, Iowa
    The Giants had major problems in their linebacking corps this past season. They’ve been hesitant to upgrade this group in recent offseasons, but they’ll have to do it soon.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Tripp, OLB

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jordan Tripp, OLB, Montana
    The Jaguars upgrade yet another level of their defense; their linebacking corps beyond Paul Posluszny is putrid.

    Pick change; previously Brent Urban, DE/DT

  15. New York Jets: Dri Archer, RB/WR, Kent State
    Here’s another weapon for Geno Smith. Dri Archer could serve as a dangerous weapon coming out of the backfield.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Smith, DE/OLB

  16. Miami Dolphins: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona 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 Calvin Barnett, DT

  17. Chicago Bears: Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
    The Bears need to add another linebacker to their very thin linebacking corps.

    Pick change; previously Pierre Desir, CB

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Marcus Smith, DE/OLB, Louisville
    The Steelers will be looking to add some pass-rushing depth if they can’t retain Jason Worilds or have to cut LaMarr Woodley.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB

  19. Dallas Cowboys: Chris Smith, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Cowboys need another pass-rusher, so expect them to add a defensive end in the first few rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Will Clarke, DE/DT, West Virginia
    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.



  21. Green Bay Packers: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    Mike McCarthy told the media that he wants to draft a quarterback early. Can you blame him after what happened this past season?

  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 year.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
    Like the Panthers, the Bengals are a team that needs a tackle and may take a chance on a talented player with a medical issue.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Jerick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
    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: Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
    The Chargers are fortunate that Keenan Allen was so dominant this past season because their other receivers disappointed. The front office will have to bring in a new wideout.

    Pick change; previously Deandre Coleman, DE/DT

  26. New Orleans Saints: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
    The Saints have some issues at cornerback. Jabari Greer was recently released, as he was coming off a torn ACL.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Dontae Johnson, S, N.C. State
    Here’s some secondary help for the Browns, who could use someone to challenge Tashaun Gipson at safety.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
    Steve Smith won’t be around much longer, so the Panthers may want to add two receivers this offseason.

    Pick change; previously Bruce Ellington, WR

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama
    The 49ers may want some pass-rushing insurance just in case Aldon Smith gets into trouble again.

  30. New England Patriots: C.J. Fiedeorowicz, 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: Brent Urban, DE/DT Virginia
    The Broncos have some issues at defensive end. Shaun Phillips, 33 in May, surprised many by playing extremely well after struggling in San Diego the previous season. Unfortunately, his contract expired. Robert Ayers also happens to be a free agent.

    Pick change; previously Rob Herron, WR

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State
    It doesn’t sound like the Seahawks will be retaining right tackle Breno Giacomini, so here’s a potential replacement.
