Last update: Wednesday, March 19, 2014. Major changes in all 5 rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


    *** 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. Baltimore Ravens: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
    Baltimore added Steve Smith, which I thought was an awful move (go here for my NFL Free Agent Grades), but regardless of my opinion, the Ravens are still in the market for a long-term No. 2 option for Joe Flacco.

    If Baltimore decides to go with a wideout – a likely scenario if Eric Ebron is off the board – Ozzie Newsome will have plenty of players at the position to choose from. Thus, the Ravens would be a candidate to move down unless they really love Marqise Lee. Perhaps a team looking to nab Zack Martin would like to trade up in front of Miami.

  2. New York Jets: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
    The Jets need to add more play-makers to the roster because Geno Smith was surrounded by the worst supporting cast in the NFL last year. Eric Decker was signed, but New York needs more receivers. The top weapon who can be added to the roster is Brandin Cooks, who blew up the Combine. For more on the Jets potentially choosing Cooks, check out the 2014 NFL Draft Team Rumors page.

  3. Miami Dolphins: Zack Martin, OT/G, Notre Dame
    Zack Martin had an outstanding Senior Bowl, and there’s talk that despite his short arms, he could be used at left tackle. Worst-case scenario, he’s a stud guard or a right tackle. Miami needs help at both positions in the wake of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident.

    Also, here’s something to keep in mind: As Charlie Campbell noted on our NFL Draft Rumors page, “Dennis Hickey has a huge inclination to go for high-character players. If a player is perceived to be a thug, gang-banger or have a drug issue, that could knock them off Miami’s board. I could see Zack Martin being a fit.”

  4. Arizona Cardinals: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    The Cardinals have a habit of going with the top player on their board. The prospect who fits that description is Darqueze Dennard, who also happens to fill a need. Arizona wants a new cornerback across from Patrick Peterson, as it showed interest in Antonio Cromartie, bringing him in for a visit.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Barr, DE/OLB



  5. Green Bay Packers: Ra’Shede Hageman, DE/DT, Minnesota
    The Packers spent last year’s first-round pick on a defensive lineman, but that doesn’t mean that Ted Thompson won’t double dip there. B.J. Raji was re-signed for a 1-year deal, but he probably won’t be around in 2015. Ra’Shede Hageman is one of the top players available and happens to fit what the Packers want to do up front in terms of getting quicker.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
    Philadelphia’s defense was terrible for many reasons, one of which is the safety position. Malcolm Jenkins was signed, but help is still needed there. Nate Allen is just too unreliable to be one of the starters.

  7. Kansas City Chiefs: Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA
    The Chiefs would like to select a guard, but they can probably do so after trading down. They just signed Jeff Linkenbach, but I’m told that they view the former Colt as a backup. Right guard is a huge hole.

    Pick change; previously Odell Beckham, WR

  8. 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 has some off-the-field concerns, but that’s not going to stop Marvin Lewis from selecting him at No. 24.

    Pick change; previously Darqueze Dennard, CB



  9. San Diego Chargers: Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame
    The Chargers currently lack a starting-caliber nose tackle, so they’ll be thrilled if Louis Nix falls to them. This has a good chance of happening, as many teams won’t be interested in Nix because he’s not very good at rushing the passer. San Diego won’t care though, as it needs an upgrade over Cam Thomas, who happens to be an impending free agent.

  10. Cleveland Browns: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    Cleveland has been linked to Derek Carr, so the front office may opt to draft him here instead of spending the No. 4 pick on a much better quarterback. Hey, it’s the Browns; they like to do things a bit “differently” because they are a “special” team.

  11. New Orleans Saints: Kony Ealy, DE/OLB, Missouri
    Considering that New Orleans has to deal with Matt Ryan and Cam Newton twice per year, the team could stand to bolster its pass rush. The Saints can’t count on Victor Butler, who is coming off a torn ACL. Butler will be a free agent following the 2014 season anyway.

  12. Carolina Panthers: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
    The Panthers’ receiving corps is a joke right now. They’re so desperate for a wideout that they may have to as Nate from the Play 60 commercials to catch passes from Cam Newton. They almost have to go with a wideout, so perhaps they’ll move up for someone like Odell Beckham.

    Pick change; previously Jason Verrett, CB



  13. New England Patriots: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
    Another corner? Well, Darrelle Revis is in New England for just one season, while Brandon Browner is one infraction away from being suspended for an entire year. The Patriots don’t need to address the cornerback position, but they could certainly add someone like Kyle Fuller, who fits the characteristics of a Bill Belichick player.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
    Anquan Boldin was re-signed – go here for my Free Agent Grades – but he won’t be around much longer. Also, Mario Manningham just signed with the Giants. San Francisco needs to add a deep threat at wideout, and Kelvin Benjamin certainly fits that. The 49ers like Benjamin, so they may trade up for him.

  15. Denver Broncos: C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
    Boom. C.J. Mosley falls hard in this mock draft, sliding 20 spots from my previous update. However, if you read Charlie Campbell’s draft rumor mill, Mosley is expected to go much later than most expect. One team even thinks he’ll be available when they’re on the clock in Round 2.

    The Broncos have a big need at inside linebacker, so I think they’d be happy if he dropped to them.

    Pick change; previously Ryan Shazier, LB

  16. Seattle Seahawks: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn
    The Seahawks need another edge rusher. Cliff Avril will be a free agent after this upcoming season, and Seattle probably won’t be able to afford him. Chris Clemons is no longer with the team either.
