2014 NFL Draft Re-Mock: Round 1 – Picks 17-32

This is a 2014 NFL Draft Re-Mock. I’m going back to 2014 and re-distributing all of the 2014 NFL Draft prospects to all of the teams in the 2014 NFL Draft order. This 2014 NFL Draft Re-Mock is based on how these players have performed in their careers, as well as the needs each team had back in 2014.

2019 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2018 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2017 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2016 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2015 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2014 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2013 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2012 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2011 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2010 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2009 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2008 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2007 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2006 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2005 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2004 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2003 NFL Draft Re-Mock | 2002 NFL Draft Re-Mock
  1. Baltimore Ravens: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: C.J. Mosley, LB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Eric Ebron, TE

    I don’t think the Ravens would re-select C.J. Mosley again with this pick. Mosley is a good run defender, but struggles in coverage. He would be a nice pick in the second round of a re-mock, but No. 17 is too early for him with all of the options available.

    The Ravens had a big need at receiver during the 2014 offseason. Their answer was getting an aging Steve Smith to start across from Torrey Smith, which was not ideal. Davante Adams would’ve been a nice weapon for Joe Flacco.

  2. New York Jets: Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Calvin Pryor, S
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Calvin Pryor, S

    It took Dee Ford some time to develop into a stud edge rusher. The Jets needed one back in 2014, as they were beginning to realize that 2012 first-rounder Quinton Coples was a big-time bust. Regardless, Ford would’ve been a much better pick than the atrocious Calvin Pryor.

  3. Miami Dolphins: Charles Leno, OT, Boise State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: JaWuan James, OT
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: JaWuan James, OT

    JaWuan James was seen as a huge reach at the time, but he turned out to be a good player. However, there was a better tackle available. Charles Leno has developed into a rock-solid blind-side protector for the Bears, so he would’ve been the better choice.



  4. New Orleans Saints: Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Brandin Cooks, WR
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Marquise Lee, WR

    The Saints ran a 3-4 defense back in 2014, yet they didn’t really have any stellar edge rushers, save for Junior Galette. With Brandin Cooks off the board, Trent Murphy would’ve been a nice option via a trade up.

  5. Green Bay Packers: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Ryan Shazier, LB

    Ryan Shazier may seem like a dubious pick, but I think it makes sense. The Packers desperately wanted him, only to see the Steelers steal him away from them. Shazier was a stellar linebacker who would’ve bolstered Green Bay’s defense enough to put the team over the top. If the Packers were able to win a Super Bowl with the help of Shazier, it would’ve been worth taking him at this juncture.

  6. Cleveland Browns: Joel Bitonio, OT/G/C, Nevada
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Johnny Manziel, QB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB

    The Browns traded up for a quarterback, but there’s no signal-caller worth taking with this choice. Instead, they can select Joel Bitonio, whom they gave a 6-year, $51 million contract to during the 2017 offseason. If they liked him enough to give him that much money, they’d certainly choose him with the 22nd pick in the draft.

  7. Kansas City Chiefs: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Dee Ford, DE/OLB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Xavier Su’a-Filo

    Dee Ford ended up being a great pick, but he’s not available for the Chiefs in this re-mock. Timmy Jernigan turned out to be a stout defensive lineman, so he would’ve made for a nice backup choice at No. 23 overall.

  8. Cincinnati Bengals: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Darqueze Dennard, CB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Darqueze Dennard, CB

    I’m fine with keeping this pick. Darqueze Dennard hasn’t been a great player for the Bengals, but he has served as a solid slot cornerback over the years. There aren’t any better options who happen to fill needs for Cincinnati, so I think it makes sense to keep Dennard slotted at this spot.

  9. San Diego Chargers: Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Jason Verrett, CB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Brandin Cooks, WR

    Jason Verrett is a talented player, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy, so he can’t be re-mocked for this pick.

    The Chargers have watched Gabe Jackson perform on a high level for the rival Raiders. They needed a guard to upgrade Jeromey Clary, and Jackson definitely would’ve done that.



  10. Philadelphia Eagles: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Marcus Smith, LB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Cody Latimer, WR

    Marcus Smith? Good lord, I forgot how bad that pick was. I guess Cody Latimer wasn’t much better though!

    I listed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix as a possible option for the Eagles. He’s one of the top players available, and he fills a big need.

  11. Arizona Cardinals: Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Deone Bucannon, S
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Blake Bortles, QB

    The Cardinals hadn’t drafted David Johnson yet, so they were in the market for a starting running back. Devonta Freeman was the best player at his position in this class, and he would’ve been a logical pick for them at some point.

  12. Carolina Panthers: JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Kelvin Benjamin, WR
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Morgan Moses, OT

    Kelvin Benjamin once looked like a great pick, but he has gotten worse with every season. The Panthers could have addressed their offensive line instead, and Ja’Wuan James is the best blocker available.



  13. New England Patriots: Brandon Linder, C, Miami
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Dominique Easley, DT
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Ra’Shede Hageman, DE/DT

    Dominique Easley is yet another injury-prone first-rounder from this class. The Patriots obviously wouldn’t take him again. Instead, Brandon Linder makes the most sense, as center was one of the biggest needs for New England at the time.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Andre Hal, S, Vanderbilt
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Jimmie Ward, S
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Odell Beckham Jr., WR

    I had the 49ers picking Odell Beckham Jr., but via a trade up. The 49ers were rumored to be high on Beckham, but couldn’t make the move for him. They stood pat and took Jimmie Ward. Here’s a better safety at this spot.

  15. Denver Broncos: C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Bradley Roby, CB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: C.J. Mosley, LB

    I slotted C.J. Mosley at this spot in my 2014 NFL Mock Draft. It was too early for the Ravens to take him at No. 17, but he makes much more sense with the 31st-overall pick. Here was my reasoning for the Mosley projection:

    “Wesley Woodyard signed with the Titans, but he looked out of place trying to play middle linebacker. Paris Lenon is a disaster. This is an area Denver may want to upgrade to help improve its defense, which couldn’t get off the field in the Super Bowl. C.J. Mosley is expected to fall during the draft because he’s damaged goods, but the Broncos may not care because they want to win now. They won’t be as concerned about his long-term health issues as other teams would be.”

  16. Minnesota Vikings: Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA `
    Actual 2014 NFL Draft Pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB
    My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Derek Carr, QB

    The Vikings traded up into the end of the opening round for Teddy Bridgewater. They obviously wouldn’t do that again because he hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

    Rather than waste a selection on Bridgewater, the Vikings could take the player they drafted with their first pick in the opening round. Anthony Barr struggles in coverage, but he makes more sense at No. 32.
