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. 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 second running back, upgrade the outside linebacker position, obtain another tight end and acquire a better nickel.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Washington Redskins: Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
    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 Donte Moncrief, WR

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
    The Falcons may search for their running back of the future in the middle rounds. Steven Jackson won’t be around much longer if he keeps playing like he did in 2013.

    Pick change; previously Daniel McCullers, NT

  4. New York Jets: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    Poor Rex Ryan is frustrated that his team whiffed on all of the top cornerbacks. The Jets will have to address the position in the draft.

    Pick change; previously Ego Ferguson, DT (TB)



  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: Marcus Smith, DE/OLB, Louisville
    Paul Kruger predictably failed to live up to his price tag this past season. The Browns may want to bring in another pass-rusher if they have plans on releasing Kruger after the 2014 season.

    Pick change; previously Yawin Smallwood, ILB

  7. Oakland Raiders: Terrance West, RB, Towson
    The Raiders retained Darren McFadden, as predicted, but for only one year. Rashad Jennings is gone, so Oakland needs a new insurance policy.

    Pick change; previously Ka’Deem Carey, RB

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Jones, LB, Florida State
    The Vikings have just one sure thing at linebacker, and that would be Chad Greenway, who is coming off an awful season.

    Pick change; previously Charles Sims, RB

  9. Buffalo Bills: Christian Kirksey, LB, Iowa
    I hope the Bills don’t think that Keith Rivers is a long-term option (or any sort of option) for them at linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Jackson Jeffcoat, DE

  10. St. Louis Rams: Dakota Dozier, G, Furman
    The Rams still have a hole at one of the guard positions, even after retaining Rodger Saffold.

  11. Detroit Lions: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
    Willie Young is gone, so Detroit will have to find someone to compete with Devin Taylor to rush the passer across from Ziggy Ansah.

    Pick change; previously Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB

  12. Tennessee Titans: Jerick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
    The Titans probably won’t be able to trade Chris Johnson. If they cut him, Tennessee will obviously be searching for a new lead running back.

    Pick change; previously Terrance West, RB



  13. New York Giants: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
    Jerry Reese has taken chances on falling prospects before (see Damonte Moore last year), so maybe he’ll take a shot on Antonio Richardson to help upgrade a poor offensive front.

    Pick change; previously Christian Kirksey, LB

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

  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. Sorry I don’t have Archer in the first round, by the way. Perhaps if I had agents feeding me shaky info, I could move him up.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
    The Dolphins retained Randy Starks, but lost Paul Soliai to the Falcons. Here’s a big body to replace him.

    Pick change; previously Will Sutton, DT

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

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Will Clarke, DE/DT, West Virginia
    The Steelers lost Ziggy Hood and Al Woods in free agency. Neither was an impactful player, but the team is severely lacking in depth up front.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Smith, 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: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
    Last year’s second-round pick, Kevin Minter, will likely start for the departed Karlos Dansby. Depth is needed at inside linebacker, however.

    Pick change; previously Will Clarke, DE/DT



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

    Pick change; previously A.J. McCarron, QB

  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. I liked the Nolan Carroll signing, but Philadelphia will still probably add another corner.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    The Bengals will keep sticking with Andy Dalton, but they’ll need to develop a quarterback just in case Dalton can’t get them over the first-round hump.

    Pick change; previously Antonio Richardson, OT

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
    The Chiefs need some help in their receiving corps, especially with Dexter McCluster now in Tennessee.

    Pick change; previously Jerick McKinnon, RB



  25. San Diego Chargers: Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State
    The Chargers could easily double up on cornerbacks considering their huge need at the position.

    Pick change; previously Bruce Ellington, WR

  26. New Orleans Saints: Chris Davis, CB, Auburn
    The Saints have some issues at cornerback. Jabari Greer was recently released, as he was coming off a torn ACL.

    Pick change; previously Ty Zimmerman, S

  27. Cleveland Browns: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
    The Browns signed Donte Whitner, but they could use another safety to challenge Tashaun Gipson.

    Pick change; previously Dontae Johnson, S

  28. Carolina Panthers: Anthony Steen, G, Alabama
    The Panthers have to draft multiple linemen – preferably ones who won’t retire anytime soon.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Coleman, 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 signed DeMarcus Ware, but they also lost Shaun Phillips and Robert Ayers to free agency.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State
    The Seahawks lost Breno Giacomini to the Jets, so here’s a potential replacement.
