Rhett's 2014 Mock Draft 1.0



1(1). Teddy Bridgewater Quarterback Louisville - Bridgewater is playing lights out so far this season, and seems to be rather unstoppable. There are comparisons to Russell Wilson, but a taller version. He's an athletic, mature and smart quarterback with little to work on. He has a great arm, with great accuracy, and has great poise in the pocket and he isn't scared to take a hit. Teddy will come in, snatch the starting job and start bringing this team to greatness for years to come.

2(33).Melvin Gordon Running Back Wisconsin - Gordon is the most explosive back on the nation, maintaining a YPC Average of 10 yards over the last 2 seasons. He's drawing early comparisons to a mix between Chris Johnson and Jaamal Charles. He has great vision, reading the defense, and has the patience to let the line set their blocks before taking off down the field. Gordon can come in and replace the old injured MJD with a young explosive player, which is something this team lacks; explosion. In season one, Gordon can compete with Forsett for playing time, with Forsett likely starting, and Gordon taking the 3rd down role while adjusting to the speed of the NFL.

3(65). Hroniss Grasu Center Oregon - very quick and athletic center. Pretty good run blocker and moves really well. Looks to me like a great fit for the Zone Blocking Scheme.

4(97.) Jacskon Jeffcoat Defensive EndTexas -Tweener at 6'5" 245 lbs, ha a fantastic burst of the line. Needs to work on his pass rushing repertoire and needs to get stronger. He does turn the corner fast, and has great agility and drops his hips with ease. Traditionally, he looks like he'd have to stand up and go to a 34 defense, but for this defense he looks like an intriguing LEO candidate.

4(120). James Gayle Defesive End Virginia Tech - Another Tweener. Gayle has nice physical set at 6'3" 252 lbs. He is a good run defender and solid pass rusher. He's has a good first step and rarely bites on the play action fake. He has good closing speed, and is a reliable good tackler. Great athlete, but relies too much on his speed, if he doesn't win off the snap he's usually held up at the line, because he lacks strength and doesn't use his hands well. He does utilize the spin move, but really needs to work on his hands and strength to be a good pass rusher in the NFL.

5(129). Jawaun James Right Tackle Tennessee - James is a rock on the Vols' line. If he starts the rest of the season and a bowl game, it'll make 50 starts for him at Tennessee. James is not athletic enough to play LT, and is looked at as a Rt or a guard. He is a good run blocker and pass blocker, can come I and compete for a starting position right away.

5(138). Josh Huff Wide Receiver Oregon - good athlete, good seed, can come in and compete for the 4th receiver position. Also can contribute on special teams. He has great vision, and balance and plays taller then his 5'11" height.

5(152). Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin - thumper MLB. Great run stuffer, and solid pass rusher, not very fast, and not good in pass coverage. If he can't become better in coverage, he'll be limited to a 2 down role in the NFL.

6(161). Kevin Pierre-Louis DE/WLB Boston College

7(193). Stanley Jean Baptiste CB Nebraska
