2014 NFL Mock Draft 2.0

We are still a couple of months away from the actual NFL draft but with the NFL Combine coming up I figured it would be fun to do a mock before we see all the official player measurables and times come in.

1. Houston - Johnny Manziel. The Texans have to draft a QB and what better way to bring back some fans then by drafting Johnny Football. He may not be tall but as Russell Wilson proved a couple of weeks ago his skills are enough to lead a team to the Super Bowl.

2. St. Louis - Jadeveon Clowney. Yes I know the Rams have two studs at defensive end already but Clowney is too much of a talent to pass up.

3. Jacksonville - Blake Bortles. The Jags will get either one of Johnny Football or Bortles. Bortles is the guy for now.

4. Cleveland - Teddy Bridgewater. It wouldn't shock me to see the Browns trade up to get one of either Bortles or Johnny Football but if they don't I got them going Teddy here.

5. Oakland - Jake Matthews. The Raiders could also trade up to get a potential franchise QB but instead take a potential All-Pro left tackle in Matthews.

6. Atlanta - Anthony Barr. The Falcons need elite talent who can rush the QB. Barr fits the bill perfectly.

7. Tampa Bay - Sammy Watkins. It will be too tempting for the Buccaneers to pass on a game changing wideout.

8. Minnesota - Derek Carr. He's a project but his upside is tremendous.

9. Buffalo - Khalil Mack. The Buffalo U product won't have to travel far.

10. Detroit - Mike Evans. Detroit loves receivers in the first round.

11. Tennessee - Craig Robinson. I'm not sure why teams are so fascinated with this left tackle but he's projected to go top 10 on a lot of boards.

12. New York Giants - Zach Martin. The Giants need help up front. Martin can play either tackle or guard.

13. St. Louis - Taylor Lewan. The Rams decide to protect Sam Bradford with this roid head. 

14. Chicago - Haha Clinton-Dix. The Bears need help in the secondary. Someone like Clinton-Dix who can actually tackle should help.

15. Pittsburgh - Timmy Jernigan. I think Jernigan has All-Pro potential at DT.

16. Dallas - Louis Nix. The Cowboys needs a run stuffer who can take on two linemen. Irish Chocolate can do both.

17. Baltimore - Marqise Lee. Flacco needs more weapons to throw to and Lee is good enough to start right away.

18. New York Jets - Eric Ebron. Scouts love this North Carolina tight end and I know he is good but I think this will be the first reach pick in the draft.

19. Miami - CJ Mosley. Inside linebackers tend to be hit or miss in the first round. Dolphins hope Mosley fills a need.

20. Arizona - Aaron Donald. A little undersized Donald has the motor to succeed in the NFL at defensive tackle.

21. Green Bay - Justin Gilbert. The first corner to come off the board.

22. Philadelphia - Darqueze Dennard. The Eagles need help in the secondary. This Michigan State product brings swagger to the back end.

23. Kansas City - Kony Ealy. The Chiefs could use another pass-rusher and the Mizzou product has an ability to put pressure on the QB.

24. Cincinnati - Ra'Shede Hageman. The Bengals can team up Hageman with Geno Atkins to make a lethal combo inside.

25. San Diego - Jason Verrett. Chargers defense needs corners bad and Verrett is the best leftover. 

26. Cleveland - Cyrus Kouandijo. The Browns will be looking to protect Bridgewater or whomever they trade up and get.

27. New Orleans - Stephon Tuitt. The Saints are looking for players who can make their secondary look better. Well a pass rusher can help alleviate some of the pressure on the secondary by getting to the QB.

28. Carolina - David Yankey. Cam Newton needs better protection. Yankey can play either tackle or guard.

29. New England - Jace Amaro. Patriots need help at tight end and Amaro is the best one available.

30. San Francisco - Odell Beckham. 49ers are looking for long term answers at wide out.

31. Denver - Dee Ford. We all saw how poorly the Broncos did getting to the QB in the SuperBowl. 

32. Seattle - Antonio Richardson. This Vols left tackle will help protect RussellMania.

Farewell to The Captain #2 Shirts and Hoodies Now Available!

As you know I'm not the biggest Yankees fan in the world.  In fact I've loathed them since conception. But I sure as hell respect Derek Jeter for his career both on and off the field.  The guy got more top quality ass (talking legit 10's not 7's) than any player in any sport and he's done it right by not getting tied down with one chick.  He's waiting till after his playing days are over to get hitched.  Gotta respect the game from Jeter.  You also gotta respect these awesome The Captain shirts and hoodies.  Admit you love them!

Get these classic "The Captain" Farewell t-shirts and hoodies today!  Don't be a your love for the biracial angel!
