2014 NFL Mock Draft Picks 21-32 by Tyler Lurkins
21. Green Bay-Zach Martin, G/T, Notre Dame-Pack fans see O lineman too frequently in the drafts. Yet, Rodgers can’t go down again. The guard spots need tremendous upgrades, and Martin could be an all pro guard down the road.
22. Philadelphia-Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana-Philly needs an explosive receiver, and Latimer is boosting up the boards. The rare combination of size and speed will have Latimer sitting on the cusp of round 1. This offense will find a way to utilize his talents.
23. Kansas City-Xavier Su’A-Filo, G, UCLA-With very few picks, Reid will continue the trend of selecting O lineman. KC is weak at G and Su’A-Filo will be a plug and play prospect.
24. Cincinnati-Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A and M-Cincy is a great team, with few holes or upgrades. With Dalton drawing criticism from the fan base, Cincy shouldn’t pass on a chance to upgrade the QB position.
25. San Diego-Kyle Fuller, CB, Va Tech-San Diego’s first priority should be to shore up the secondary. Fuller is coming out of the woodworks as an excellent cover corner.
26. Cleveland(via Indianapolis)-Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St.-The CB position can use an upgrade across from Haden. Roby is a hometown favorite who plays aggressive on the ball.
27. New Orleans-Demarcus Lawrence, LB, Boise St.-Lawrence is a fringe, round 1 prospect. New Orleans could use to bolster their rushing corps, especially since it’s an emphasis of the Ryan defense.
28. Carolina-Cyrus Kouandjio, T, Alabama-Kouandjio may not see the first round after poor post season medical billings and performances. The Panthers have not been aggressive in free agency and will look to reach for Kouandjio or a Brandon Thomas. The other only option is trading up. If they don’t seek line depth for Newton, Carolina will take a huge step backwards.
29. New England-Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame-Essentially the Wilfork deal is one year contract. New England would love to trade back and nab a TE, WR, or O lineman, but they can’t afford to go pass on a replacement for Wilfork.
30. San Francisco-Jason Verrett, CB, TCU-The offseason has brought several changes to the San Fran secondary. Verrett is a scrappy ballhawk who should start day 1.
31. Denver-Joel Bitonio, G, Nevada-With all the money spent on the defense, Denver will spend some picks to protect Manning . Bitonio is moving up boards. He can play LT, but will be a very solid G.
32. Seattle-Morgan Moses, T, Virginia-Moses is a mammoth run blocker and anchors the right side of the line. Coming off the Super Bowl win, Seattle needs to keep their line in shape for another run.
