    McShay

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draf...-goes-no-1-todd-mcshay-2014-nfl-mock-draft-20

    1.. Houston Texans - Jadeveon Clowney* DE South Carolina
    2.. St. Louis Rams (Washington) - Greg Robinson T Auburn
    3.. Jacksonville Jaguars - Teddy Bridgewater* QB Louisville
    4.. Cleveland Browns - Blake Bortles* QB Central Florida
    5.. Oakland Raiders - Johnny Manziel* QB Texas A&M
    6.. Atlanta Falcons - Jake Matthews T Texas A&M
    7.. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
    8.. Minnesota Vikings - C.J. Mosley OLB Alabama
    9.. Buffalo Bills - Sammy Watkins* WR Clemson
    10. Detroit Lions - Mike Evans* WR Texas
    11. Tennessee Titans - Anthony Barr DE/OLB UCLA
    12. New York Giants - Taylor Lewan T Michigan
    13. St. Louis Rams - Marqise Lee* WR USC
    14. Chicago Bears - Timmy Jernigan DT Florida St.
    15. Pittsburgh Steelers - Louis Nix III DT Notre Dame
    16. Baltimore Ravens - Eric Ebron* TE North Carolina

    17. Dallas Cowboys - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix* S Alabama
    Analysis: The Cowboys' biggest need area is their pass rush (they ranked last in the NFL in sacks per pass attempt), but it might be reaching at this point to draft a D-lineman like Missouri's Kony Ealy or Pitt's Aaron Donald. But safety is also a clear position of weakness -- particularly in coverage -- and the best one in this class is Clinton-Dix. He doesn't have elite man-to-man coverage skills but has good range in zone and is an aggressive, efficient run supporter. Safety is becoming a more important position in the NFL with the increased usage of spread formations, bigger wide receivers and athletic "F" tight ends.

    18. New York Jets - Brandin Cooks* WR Oregon St.
    19. Miami Dolphins - Zack Martin T Notre Dame
    20. Arizona Cardinals - Cyrus Kouandjio* T Alabama
    21. Green Bay Packers - Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma St.
    22. Philadelphia Eagles - Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan St.
    23. Kansas City Chiefs - Odell Beckham Jr.* WR LSU
    24. Cincinnati Bengals - Lamarcus Joyner CB Florida St.
    25. San Diego Chargers - Loucheiz Purifoy* CB Florida
    26. Cleveland Browns (Indianapolis) - Davante Adams* WR Fresno St.
    27. New Orleans Saints - Morgan Moses T Virginia
    28. Carolina Panthers - Kelvin Benjamin* WR Florida St.
    29. New England Patriots - Stephon Tuitt* DE Notre Dame
    30. San Francisco 49ers - Ra'Shede Hageman DT Minnesota
    31. Denver Broncos - Jason Verrett CB TCU
    32. Seattle Seahawks - Jace Amaro* TE Texas Tech

    Kiper

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draf...4-nfl-draft-mel-kiper-reveals-mock-draft-no-2

    1.. Houston Texans - Johnny Manziel* QB Texas A&M
    2.. St. Louis Rams (Washington) - Greg Robinson T Auburn
    3.. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jadeveon Clowney* DE South Carolina
    4.. Cleveland Browns - Teddy Bridgewater* QB Louisville
    5.. Oakland Raiders - Sammy Watkins* WR Clemson
    6.. Atlanta Falcons - Anthony Barr DE/OLB UCLA
    7.. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
    8.. Minnesota Vikings - Blake Bortles* QB Central Florida
    9.. Buffalo Bills - Jake Matthews T Texas A&M
    10. Detroit Lions - Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma St.
    11. Tennessee Titans - Taylor Lewan T Michigan
    12. New York Giants - C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    13. St. Louis Rams - Mike Evans* WR Texas
    14. Chicago Bears - Timmy Jernigan DT Florida St.
    15. Pittsburgh Steelers - Louis Nix III DT Notre Dame
    16. Baltimore Ravens - Eric Ebron* TE North Carolina

    17. Dallas Cowboys - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix S Alabama
    Analysis: Defensive line could also be a pick here, as the team has some age concerns up front, but safety is a major area of need. The Cowboys could use a free safety with range, good instincts and experience who can come in and play right away. Clinton-Dix provides the added bonus of being able to help out closer to the line of scrimmage. While he's great in single high, you can bring him up and he won't shy away from contact.

    18. New York Jets - Marqise Lee* WR USC
    19. Miami Dolphins - Zack Martin T Notre Dame
    20. Arizona Cardinals - Cyrus Kouandjio* T Alabama
    21. Green Bay Packers - Calvin Pryor* S Louisville
    22. Philadelphia Eagles - Odell Beckham Jr.* WR LSU
    23. Kansas City Chiefs - Kelvin Benjamin* WR Florida St.
    24. Cincinnati Bengals - Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan St.
    25. San Diego Chargers - Marcus Roberson* CB Florida
    26. Cleveland Browns (Indianapolis) - Davante Adams* WR Fresno St.
    27. New Orleans Saints - Antonio Richardson* T Tennessee
    28. Carolina Panthers - Brandin Cooks* WR Oregon St.
    29. New England Patriots - Jace Amaro* TE Texas Tech
    30. San Francisco 49ers - Jarvis Landry* WR LSU
    31. Denver Broncos - Bradley Roby* CB Ohio St.
    32. Seattle Seahawks - Allen Robinson* WR Penn St.

    13. St. Louis Rams - Mike Evans* WR Texas

    I have no problem with drafting a safety in the first rd but in this scheme our FS has to cover a lot of ground and range is very important.

    Well, this kid has that. He has all the natural ability you could want in a Safety. He will need to get stronger for the Pro game but I think he's going to run very well and I also think he's going to show some lateral quickness and some coverage abilities. He just needs more experience. He was a RB and a CB, I believe, in HS. He was moved to Safety later so I think there might be a bit of an experience curve there but he's a guy, at 6'1" 205 lbs that can physically cover the field and play man to man.

    McShay has Mike Evans going #10 to the Lions.

    Kiper has him going #13 to the Rams.

    Right, but this says they both have him as WR TEXAS. Evans plays for TAMU.

    It says Texas A&M in the actual article.

    Also, I would swear that the original post had it as Texas A&M a few minutes ago and now it's just Texas.

    I'd rather have Cyrus Kouandjio* T Alabama in both of those mocks.

    Good thing it's February because those mocks are both horrible. Cooks from Oregon St is good but not a first round player this year, he's only 5'7" and not Tavon Austin athletic.

    Didn't realize Mike Evans was a high first. I have been hearing that he works out with Dez and that Dez wants him on the team, and that the Cowboys met with him at the Senior Bowl. But I didn't know he would take a 1st round pick. So much for the pet cat.

    Well he's got a chance then, OSU put out a highlight tape that had his heigth and weight and Im sure it said he was 5'7" or 8". Either way it's early and I've watched some tape of him and came to the conclusion the Jets already have him on their roster his name is Jeremy Kerley.

    Thanks - checked my facts and it is Mike DAVIS, not Evans. Projects in the 3rd or 4th round. My pet cat is alive and well!

    McShay was on ESPN today saying he thinks Anthony Barr is a little overrated and is more of a mid to late 1st round pick.

    I would rate him as the BPA at #17. I think he would be good at Guard as well as OT.

    sounds more like a project. You do not draft projects in the first round. The only time you take a safety in the first is if he is ready to start and shine.

    Unless this guy is a future Ed Reed or equivalent then no way
