2014 NFL Mock Draft Picks 21-32 by Tyler Lurkins
21. San Diego-Cyrus Kouandjio, T, Alabama-San Diego is desperately needing a solid LT, though finding a way to excel without one. Why not draft another Alabama product? Kouandjio is not the elite pass protector, but is every bit the player Fluker is. He will be a huge upgrade, and in a year or two, will be a complete product at LT. Kujo’s is not an elite pass rusher, and may be the first high prospect to return to school.
22. Detroit-Marqise Lee, WR, USC-Lee is a shifty receiver with flawless hands. A great route runner, Lee may be the most NFL ready receiver in the draft. The Lions window for success is closing. Age and salary cap issues will slowly creep up on Detroit. If they don’t find an immediate impact weapon across from Megatron, Detroit will never reach full potential.
23. Dallas-Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida St.-Jernigan is a quick twitch disruptor in the middle of the line. He is a big motor with a mouth to match. His ability to get into the gaps will make for a perfect scheme fit in Dallas. As Florida State continues to win, Jernigan will get a ton of exposure.
24. New England- DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn St.-Jones is a mammoth playmaker in the middle of Penn State’s line. Penn St. churns out DT’s and if Jones doesn’t see his stock rise during the season, the combine will be where he cuts his teeth. Big enough to play nose, but small enough to move to end or under tackle, Jones will be a perfect scheme fit in New England.
25. Green Bay-Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon-Green Bay always selects the best player available. By far, at this point, it’s Olomu. Not one to wow scouts with speed, Olomu is still a great instinctive corner. Especially in the run game, where he is a sound tackler.
26. Cincinnati-Kyle Van Noy, LB, BYU-Van Noy is a perfect SAM backer for this team. Though the fact he is super religious with no drama, may make him an outcast. Harrison is great veteran presence, but his presence doesn’t make for production. Van Noy is great in coverage, but is an unstoppable pass rusher.

Harrison is great veteran presence, but his presence doesn’t make for production. Van Noy is great in coverage, but is an unstoppable pass rusher.
28. New Orleans-Rob Crisp, T, N. Carolina St.-With the elite pass rushers off the board, New Orleans should take the opportunity to improve their pass protection. Crisp is a mammoth tackle who excels in pass protection. He is extremely long with a great base. Not getting recognition due to maybe playing on a poor team, Crisp will be this years Pugh.
29.Seattle-Cyril Richardson, G/T, Baylor-The Seahawks need more competition on the O line. Richardson could easily land either guard spot or even right tackle. Remember, Richardson was once a left tackle in this air raid offense. A player who can start at 4 of 5 line positions is good to have in a pinch.
30.Cleveland(via Indianapolis)-Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor-McGahee may stick around for his run blocking skills, but he isn’t the home run hitter Cleveland needs. Seastrunk is great at hitting the hole. He is elusive and has the hands and vision for the screen game.
31. Denver-Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech-Fuller is a solid playmaker, always placing himself around the football. He fits the mold of a McCourty or Kyle Wilson. Denver’s secondary still needs major help, especially with Bailey’s play digressing.
32. Kansas City-La’el Collins, G, LSU-Collins is doubtful to declare, and rightfully so as this may be his high point. Reid’s schtick is the same. Collins is a versatile, wide body, that can start right away. With very few holes, KC is guaranteed to go O line.
