As of Monday, the 2014 NFL Draft is exactly 100 days away, which means my first mock draft of the year is probably really wrong. Enjoy.
A few explanations for the first couple picks:
If I were in charge of the Texans, I would absolutely select a quarterback with the first selection and that quarterback would be Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater. However, the decision-making for the first pick will reportedly be led by owner Bob McNair, who has publicly gushed about South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney.
Still so far from draft day that might not mean much, but it could also mean plenty. Especially from the franchise that famously passed on the consensus top pick to take a freakishly athletic defensive end, Mario Williams, who looks to be a decent comparison for Clowney.
After that I generally hate taking a wide receiver so early, but there really isn't a premium position that the Rams have a strong need to address. I wouldn't be surprised if they traded down and made wide receiver a more economical option, but with players like Robert Quinn, Chris Long, Jake Long and Sam Bradford already in place, there isn't much need to look elsewhere.
