2014 NFL Mock Draft: Sean Beazley
Updated: Monday, May 5, 2014
Here is the 2014 NFL mock draft from Sean Beazley:

1. Houston Texans (draft history): Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

I don't think the Texans get a RG3-type offer for this first pick, so they are stuck settling for one of the best defensive prospects to come out of college in a decade. That's a pretty good consolation prize.

2. St. Louis Rams (draft history): Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo

I like Mack over a tackle or wide receiver here. This is the deepest wide receiver class ever, and the Rams have another pick at No. 13 where they can add a WR. Jeff Fisher has never drafted an offensive linemen in the first round, and I think it holds true here.

* FanDuel MLB: Win the $1 MILLION top prize in FanDuel's DFBC

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (draft history): Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

The Jaguars are in a desperate need for a QB, but they are also in need of a big time WR as many are expecting that Justin Blackmon might not be back for 2014. Watkins is the best playmaker in the draft.

** Projected trade with Cleveland **

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (draft history): Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

The Bucs move up to No. 4 from seventh overall to land a big time WR in Evans. Evans would be the perfect complement to Vincent Jackson, now that Mike Williams is gone. I don't think the Bucs can stand pat and hope Evans slides to No. 7.

5. Oakland Raiders (draft history): Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

The Raiders ideally want to move down to gain more picks, but finding a trading partner here when the next three big players on the board (arguably) are all tackles. Robinson is the No. 1 tackle on my board, and he fills a need for the Raiders.

6. Atlanta Falcons (draft history): Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

The Falcons are one of the popular teams to move up into the early first round for a pass rusher, but I think the price is just too steep. They stand pat at No. 6 and get a tackle who can anchor their line for the next decade.

** Projected trade with Cleveland (via Tampa Bay) **

7. New York Giants (draft history): Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

The Giants move up and add the best interior linemen in the draft. Donald gives the Giants D-Line some much needed help. I don't think they can sit and hope he falls to them as I could see their division-rival Cowboys making a move for him as well.

8. Minnesota Vikings (draft history): Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

The Vikings go with the top QB on their board in Bortles. I don't think the Vikings can get cute and trade down in hopes in getting Bortles later.

9. Buffalo Bills (draft history): Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

2014 Fantasy Football Mock Draft:
Last month, Kevin Hanson completed a one-man 2014 fantasy football mock draft.

- Round: One | Two | Three | Four | Five
Lewan has been shooting up draft boards, and some experts say he is the best tackle in the draft. There are two things a young QB needs: weapons and protection.

The Bills added Mike Williams from Tampa, now they have a fierce tackle.

10. Detroit Lions (draft history): Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

The Lions defensive backfield is their biggest need on draft day for sure. I think Gilbert is the pick here.

** Projected trade with Tennessee **

11. New York Jets (draft history): Odell Beckham, Jr., WR, LSU

Eric Decker was a nice land this offseason for the Jets, but he is not going to beat double teams. The Jets need more help at the position. There are some teams that could use a WR that pick before the Jets, so the price is worth it. Tennessee is able to get some much needed additional picks.

** Projected trade with NY Giants **

12. Cleveland Browns (draft history): Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

This is going to be the pick that shocks the draft. The Browns move down twice, still have the opportunity to draft Johnny Manziel in the process, and they go with Carr instead. I personally like Manziel more, but I think Carr fits a little better in Cleveland.

13. St. Louis Rams (draft history): Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

The Rams parted ways with Cortland Finnegan this offseason, and could use a replacement. I think Fuller makes sense here for the Rams.

14. Chicago Bears (draft history): Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

The once feared Bears defense has turned into one of the worst units in the league. The Bears get the best safety in this year's draft, and it's a position of need.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (draft history): Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

The Steelers definitely need help at corner as Ike Taylor has been past his prime for the past few seasons. Dennard just has that kind of game where you can see him in Steelers' Black & Gold.

16. Dallas Cowboys (draft history): Anthony Barr, DE/OLB, UCLA

The Cowboys could go in a number of different directions with this pick. They could take Calvin Pryor or maybe Zach Martin, but I believe Barr has too much upside to overlook here.
