The 2014 NFL draft is both one of the best and most confusing drafts I have seen in a long time. This is mainly because of the cast of characters that this draft includes. There are quite a few quarterbacks that could go in the first round. All of these quarterbacks have the chance to be great, but also have the chance to be busts. Another interesting thing about the 2014 NFL draft is the amazing crop of young wide receivers. It’s almost a shame for the teams that have bigger needs than wide receiver, because then they miss out on some of these amazing talents.

For more great mock drafts, visit the database at Walter Football as well as the good folks over at the DC Pro Sports Report. We thank them for their support.

With that out in the open, here is my Mock Draft.

*=Real Life Trade   ^=Projected Trade    #=Coin Toss for Pick

1. Houston Texans
Teddy Bridgewater
Quarterback, Louisville

This pick will be the most interesting pick in the draft, only because this is a team that desperately needs a quarterback, but quarterback is not the most talented position in the draft. Another reason is that there are so many choices at quarterback. I like Bridgewater the best out of the quarterbacks in this draft. This is because of the quarterbacks in the draft, Bridgewater seems to have the best talent package of pocket presence, decision making, speed, accuracy, and strength.

2. Atlanta Falcons (^From St. Louis (*From Washington))
Jadeveon Clowney
Defensive End, South Carolina

The Rams acquired this pick from the Redskins in the trade for quarterback Robert Griffin III. I believe that when Jadeveon Clowney, lasts through the first pick, the Rams will trade this pick to a the Falcons. Jadeveon Clowney is probably the most talented player in this draft which is why this pick is so valuable. The Falcons tried to fix their pass rush attack last year by signing  defensive end Osi Umenyiora, however that did not work out as well as hoped. Pass rush remains their biggest weakness so they will trade up to get this pick from the less needy Rams by giving them their first round and second round pick.
