2014 NFL Mock Draft Picks 11-20 by Ian
11) Tennessee Titans – Anthony Barr OLB UCLA.
Best player available at this point. Barr is a solid pass rusher and a very good athlete, not much else needs to be said
12. New York Giants – CJ Mosley ILB Alabama.
Linebackers have been a problem for the Giants in the last few years. Since Antonio Pierce retired the Giants have needed
an ILB, and Mosley is the best one in this draft.
13. St. Louis Rams – Haha Clinton-Dix S Alabama.
Had a tough pick for the Rams, they could use a OT, or a Safety. Taylor Lewan is still on the board but if Jake Long gets healthy the need for a OT is not an immediate one for St. Louis. Adding Clinton-Dix
to a talented young defense is a good pick for the Rams.
14. Chicago Bears – Ra’Shede Hageman DT Minnesota.
Standing over 6’5” and 315 lbs, with room to put more weight on, Hageman is an athletic defensive lineman and will help the Bears on third down immediately.
15. Pittsburgh Steelers – Taylor Lewan OT Michigan.
The Steelers have needed a revamp on the offensive line for a while, every time the attempt to do this injuries kill their chances. Hiring Mike Munchak to coach the OL was a great ﬁrst step, but
adding some more OL talent is still needed. Lewan would have been a ﬁrst rounder
last year had he not returned to Michigan, but there is some concerns on how well he
can bend and move to get to blocks. With Munchak’s help Lewan should still help
16. Dallas Cowboys – Khalil Mack OLB/ DE Buffalo.
Best player available. Small school product can add some weight to play DE opposite Ware. In a passing league having multiple pass rushers is key and a trio of Mack, Ware and Jason Hatcher would be.
17) Baltimore Ravens – Mike Evans WR Texas A&M.
The combine could hurt Evan’s stock if he does not run well. He is not expected to put up the numbers Sammy Watkins will in Indy but a solid combine will have teams comparing him to Vincent
Jackson. Flacco could use a playmaker at WR.
18. New York Jets – Marqise Lee WR USC.
Marqise Lee has the talent, size and
physical abilities to be a very good NFL wide receiver. Santonio Holmes is past his
prime and needs to be replaced.
19. Miami Dolphins – David Yankey OG Stanford.
The Dolphins could also use an upgrade at LT, but with the top tackles already gone, an interior OL upgrade will have to do. Yankey is easily the top guard in the draft and will help the struggling running
20. Arizona Cardinals – Eric Ebron TE UNC.
Ebron leads a trio of talented tight ends in this class. What makes Ebron the best of the three is his run blocking and physical abilities. He can make plays after the catch and will be a weapon for whoever is the QB.
