2014 NFL Mock Draft v. 3.0 - Two-round 'consensus' mock from 'Raptor,' 'Invictus'

I think we made a mockery of it all this time.... - US PRESSWIRE

Another mock draft brought to you by your friends Invictus XI and Raptor 22. Let us know how you think we did!

Time for another two-round 2014 NFL Mock Draft, my friends. This time, I think you'll find we did something different with the New York Giants. 'Raptor' and 'Invictus' took turns, with Raptor taking the odd selections and Invictus taking the even selections. For the New York Giants turns, we both came to a consensus. Let us know what picks you agree and/or disagree with. Only a few more weeks to go!

Round 1

1.

R22

Blake Bortles, QB, UCF - The Texans have made no secret that they're interested in quarterbacks in the 2014 draft. Bortles might not be the most pro-ready, but he fits the mold of the quarterbacks that Bill O'Brien has had in New England and Penn State.

2.

IXI

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn - Though I prefer Jake Matthews, Robinson is the better fit with Jake Long on the left side. He's got the size, athleticism, and fluidity to be an Orlando Pace type player for the Rams.

3.

R22

Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson - The Jags desperately need a quarterback. However, Sammy Watkins could be the best receiving prospect since Green & Jones. They'll just have to roll the dice on finding a starting QB in the second round.

4.

IXI

Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB SCAR - Somehow, someway, Clowney falls right into Cleveland's lap, and gives them two genetically engineered hell beasts screaming off the edge when he's paired opposite Barkevious Mingo.

5.

R22

Johnny Manziel, QB, TAMU - They signed Matt McGloin and Matt Schaub, but neither is inspiring as a starter. Besides, there's just something that feels right about Johnny Football running around in The Black Hole.

6.

IXI

Khalil Mack, OLB Buffalo - Could have gone Matthews here, but the Falcons opt to add a pass rushing terror in the Von Miller mold that bolster their sagging pass rush. Mack can play any position he wants across the front seven and win consistently.

7.

R22

Mike Evans, WR, TAMU - The Buccaneers seem to have their quarterback in place with Josh McCown being signed. By drafting Mike Evans they have their own version of the Twin Towers receiving corps that McCown succeeded with in Chicago.

8.

IXI

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama - Surprise! Eric Ebron was also under consideration but the need was greater at safety. I have Clinton-Dix rated better than Mark Barron was, so I think this spot is certainly justifiable. They are starting Jamarca Sanford right now. Not good enough on the back end.

9.

R22

Jake Matthews, OT, TAMU - Matthews might be the cleanest, most flawless player in this draft. He can immediately step in at left tackle and provide a beastly bookend to Cordy Glenn.

10.

IXI

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU - No, I'm not kidding. For me, Beckham Jr.'s blend of speed and dominance at the catch point make him an elite prospect. Two trusted draft analysts, Josh Norris and Daniel Jeremiah, have OBJ as a top 10 player. I know the Lions need a defensive back and this draft class is loaded on wide receivers, but aside from Mike Evans, no other wide receiver wins more contested catches than he does. That gives him a monstrous edge when it comes to 1-on-1's that will be provided to him by Megatron.

11.

R22

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Lousiville - Jake Locker has looked good at times, but he simply hasn't stayed healthy. Bridgewater is still in the conversation for best QB in the draft, and to get him outside of the top-10 is too good to pass up.

12.

IXI

R22

TRADED TO SAN FRANCISCO FOR No. 30 and No. 61 OVERALL Didn't initially want to do trades, but what's the fun in picking the same players? We both wanted to take a look at what might happen if the Giants traded down in this scenario and added up an extra pick. Definitely not out of the realm of possibility that the Giants are not enamored with whoever is left. Taylor Lewan might not have cleared his concerns with them. They might find Aaron Donald too small for their particular scheme. They might think Ebron's drop issues aren't fixable.

According to the trade value chart, San Francisco wins here, but in a loaded draft such as this one, things even out, and it will be difficult to find a trade partner. So who did they trade up for? Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA - Barr likely has the highest-ceiling of any player in this draft not named Clowney. The fact that he's still learning the game and had the production he did makes his upside infinite. He ran a 4.44 at 255 pounds on his pro day. The 49ers are the perfect organization for him, allowing him to stay on the West Coast and learn behind a strong defensive group and take over seamlessly for Aldon Smith (who seems to be on his way out). Barr is as high character as you can get, too, so no worries on that front.

13.

R22

Calvin Pryor, S, Lousiville - If Pryor is the second-best safety in this draft class, it isn't by much. He's two inches shorter than Ha-Ha, but that is about the only difference. The Rams get to solidify the back end of their defense with a very versatile player.

14.

IXI

Aaron Donald, DT, PITT - This is an easy one. Donald is one of the best players available at a position of extreme need after losing Henry Melton. He slots in perfectly as the prototype 3 technique to form a devastating front line with Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston.

15.

R22

Darqueze Dennard, S, Michigan St. - Dennard might have been born to play in Dick LeBeau's defense. He might the best cover corner in the draft. As much as the Steelers need offensive weapons, Pittsburgh should be thrilled to get a cornerback in the mold of Prince Amukamara or Revis.

16.

IXI

Dee Ford, DE, Auburn - Although I think Kony Ealy has a higher ceiling, I go with Ford because I think he's a better pure edge rusher (Ealy better stunting inside) and is a better fit for what Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli set out to do last year. The Cowboys need someone to clean up coming off the bend after they get the interior disruption with Melton. It's a new age Demarcus Ware - Jay Ratliff connection.

17.

R22

Eric Ebron, TE, UNC - Ozzie Newsome is one of the best in the business. One of the reasons he is one of the best is because he doesn't reach for need, and he doesn't look a gift horse in the mouth. Ebron is considered by some a top-10 talent, and getting him at 17 is phenomenal value, and another weapon for Joe Flacco.

18.

IXI

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan - Fantastic value after the Jets lose out on Eric Ebron. Lewan falls because of some character concerns, but Idzik knows better and nabs the Michigan product to anchor the OL opposite D'Brickashaw Ferguson. They currently have Breno Giacomini penciled in as a starter, but I think he's better suited to be a guard.

19.

R22

Zack Martin, OL, Notre Dame - This pick just keeps happening. It's too perfect. Martin has good feet, is strong, tough, has high character, and can play right tackle or guard, and the Dolphins need both.

20.

IXI

Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL, UCLA - Strongly considered Kony Ealy here but went with a nasty, fluid moving guard. I know they just spent a top 10 pick on Jonathan Cooper last year, but that isn't nearly enough when in the NFC West. I have David Yankey rated marginally higher, but I think XSF's ability to get out in space and move is perfect for an running back like Andre Ellington on those quick screens and short routes. Su'a-Filo also has the upside to play tackle, something that Yankey likely does not at the pro level.

21.

R22

Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma St. - The Packers just spent a lot of money on Sam Shields, but as the highest remaining player on my board, Gilbert is a pure value pick. His blend of size, athelticism, and ball skills will be needed with the receiving corps that Detroit and Chicago have put together.

22.

IXI

Marqise Lee, WR, USC - If there's any situation that would strike fear in me, it's Marqise Lee going the Eagles. Can't think of a more perfect fit. Lee's ability to turn on the jets after each and every cut on his route is special. He'd be a nightmare matchup in the slot for Chip Kelly's squad. Can you imagine the speed that Jeremy Maclin, Marqise Lee, Lesean McCoy and Darren Sproles could bring? Thank goodness the Giants loaded up on the secondary this offseason.

23.

R22

Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St. - The Chiefs could use an explosive weapon for their offense and Cooks is just such a receiver. He simply plays the game at a different speed than everyone else, and bears a striking resemblance to former Andy Reid pick, DeSean Jackson.

24.

IXI

Kony Ealy, DE, Mizzou - Ealy seems like a good blend of value and need for the Bengals here. They lost Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap is much more effective against the run, so they need a guy who will be able to rush the passer. Enter Ealy, who can work his way through the trash and create havoc both inside and outside. The upside with him is great too, as he posted an impossible 6.83 3 cone time at 273 pounds, showing off his lateral agility.

25.

R22

Jason Verrett, CB, TCU - Need meets value here. If Verrett were a bit bigger he would have been in the running for first cornerback taken. He is a vicious defender with outstanding quickness and cover skills.

26.

IXI

C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama - An unorthodox selection given Cleveland's needs at CB, OL and WR, but hear me out. They let D'Qwell Jackson go and replaced him with Karlos Dansby, an effective, but aging all around player. Who's the other ILB? Currently they have someone by the name of Craig Robertson. C.J. Mosley has the instincts and aggressiveness to be a playmaker in any scheme. He has sideline to sideline range and will make this unit elite. A linebacker corps of Clowney - Mosley - Dansby - Mingo is likely one of the best in the league.

27.

R22

Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU - KVN is one of the most well-rounded players in the draft. He can do anything any defensive coordinator would ask of him. He can rush the passer, play the run, and drop in coverage. Perfect for a "Ryan" defense that just loves exotic blitzes (that happens to need a pass rusher).

28.

IXI

Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama - Boy, for a playoff team, the Panthers have an incredible amount of holes. They have guys I've never heard of starting at OT, WR, and CB. Not to mention, their safeties aren't great either. The pick was between Kouandjio and Kyle Fuller, but I opted with Kouandjio assuming there are no knee issues because if an offesnive lineman isn't the pick, Cam Newton will be chewing on some quality turf next year.

29.

R22

Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota - My Spidey sense is telling me that New england will probably move this pick. But, if they stay still, they take an incredibly explosive defensive lineman. Hageman has all the tools to be a top-10 player, except the consistency. If anyone can get a consistent level of play out of him, it's Darth Hoodie.

30.

IXI

R22

TRADED TO THE NEW YORK GIANTS who select Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. He's not Eric Ebron, but he's close. A monstrous target at 6-foot-6, 260 pounds, he provides an imposing presence up the seam for Eli Manning and will give him the threat up the middle that he's so desperately craved. He isn't the greatest blocker, but he shows effort and is an effective move blocker down field. He has shown the ability to separate and attack the ball at its highest point and would offer several mismatch opportunities for the Giants. Just what the doctor ordered. Also considered Louis Nix III here.

This sets the Giants up quite nicely for the next few rounds, as they have solved their most dire issue, which is a big weapon for the offense. Now they have two more selections in the top 64 to go with the best player available and still possibly land some more starting caliber draft choices.

31.

R22

Allen Robinson, WR, Penn St. - With Eric Decker leaving Peyton for "Greener" pastures, the Broncos add Allen Robinson. Robinson is a big, playmaking receiver who (with Thomas) will give defensive coordinators headaches.

32.

IXI

Morgan Moses, OT UVA - Wasn't originally going to go with Moses here, but he's been a fast riser throughout the offseason process, and there are several reports that label him as a first-round caliber player. Seattle has Michael Bowie as their starting right tackle and Moses would represent a massive upgrade there to solidify that core for the defending champs.

Round 2

1. (33)

R22

Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, GT - All offseason mock drafters have been drooling over the idea of Clowney and Watt chasing Andrew Luck twice a year. Well, now the Texans get that extra shot of pass rush ability. Attaochu is a polished pass rusher with great length and quickness, but he can still provide some firepower against the run. Also he come down and play defensive end in nickel situations.

2. (34)

IXI

Kyle Fuller, CB, VT - The Redskins had one of the worst secondaries in the league last year and haven't done much in the way of improving it considering they have the unproven David Amerson and the most overrated player on the planet, Deangelo Hall, as their starters. Enter Kyle Fuller, one of the best blends of movement, technique, and instincts in this draft to shore up that weak spot.

3. (35)

R22

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois Browns desperately need a quarterback. I mean *I* might even be their QB right now. So, they take one here. Jimmy G is my second- or third-ranked QB depending on how I'm feeling that day. He doesn't have a Paris Gun of an arm that Derek Carr has, but he has a lightening release with great accuracy. Also, he has out-of-this-world production. In a college season he came close to setting NFL single season records. Had he played a full 16-game schedule, he would have thrown for 6000+ yards, 60+ TDs, and 11 INTs.

4. (36)

IXI

David Yankey, OG, Stanford - The Raiders grabbed Johnny Football, now they need to protect him. Yankey is my top pure guard in this class, and I have him neck-and-neck with former teammate David DeCastro. Adding him to their front line will go a long way in regaining some respectability for this team and will join an amalgam of Donald Penn, Kevin Boothe, and Austin Howard as part of the rebuild.

5. (37)

R22

Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame - It was time for Tony Gonzalez to retire, but that leaves Matt Ryan without a luxury he's come to enjoy. Niklas doesn't quite have the upside of Austin Seferian-Jenkins, but he also doesn't have the lingering questions about his effort. Niklas does have plenty of upside himself. He's a massive target, and can develop into a complete tight end.

6. (38)

IXI

Gabe Jackson, OG, Miss. ST. - Jackson is a top 32 player for me ... barely. That means at pick 38, he's very good value and they need a complete revamping of their right side of the line, as they are currently starting Patrick Omameh and Demar Dotson at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Jackson has drawn comparisons with Larry Warford, and if he's even 75 percent of what Warford was for the Lions, he's a steal and a half here.

7. (39)

R22

Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St - The Jags passed on a QB with their first pick, but they can't afford to do so a second time. Carr has everything needed to be the best quarterback in his class. He has a monster arm, prototypical build, and he grew up around the NFL. Unfortunately, he also has a hard time anticipating pressure, and lets his mechanics break down. If he can improve his awareness Carr can become the franchise quarterback the Jags so desperately need.

8. (40)

IXI

Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU - Though it might be a smokescreen, there are reports circulating that the Vikings are smitten with Zach Mettenberger. They had him throwing specific routes during his visit with them. Mettenberger is among the smartest QBs in this class and has a big arm to boot. Might not be terribly athletic, but he doesn't need to be when he's throwing bombs down the field to Cordarrelle Patterson.

9. (41)

R22

Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt - The Bills have a guy they think could be their franchise quarterback. They bookended their offensive line with their first pick. Now they get to give their offense some teeth. Matthews is the most productive receiver in SEC history. He has massive hands, great body control, decent speed and good suddenness in and out of his breaks. In short, he's exactly what E.J. Manuel needs, and a great target to go with Stevie Johnson

10. (42)

IXI

Louis Nix III, NT, ND - The Titans are switching to a 3-4 this year and for that, a dominant nose tackle can help tremendously. Enter Nix III, a wide body that new Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton likes to utilize. With Derrick Morgan and Jurrell Casey bookending him, and Shaun Phillips, Akeem Ayers, Zach Brown, Kamerion Wimbley and Zaviar Gooden coming off the edges, the Titans have quietly built a tremendous front line on their defense that can come at you in waves.

11. (43)

R22

IXI

Davante Adams, WR Fresno State - Was the last wide receiver that I can see becoming a No. 1 wide receiver from this class. Adams has his warts, but he's a tremendous target at 6-foot-2, 218 pounds running a 4.48 40-yard dash and a 39.5-inch vertical. He has incredible agility for his size, likely the best in the draft, and can put on moves that you'd normally expect smaller guys like Brandin Cooks to make. He also has a large catch radius and excels at breaking tackles and creating after the catch.

In any other draft, I see him as a solid first-round player, but given just how deep this class is at wide receiver, he makes it down here, on the same level as guys like Jordan Matthews and Allen Robinson. The Giants have now added two receiving weapons for Manning. Imagine using Victor Cruz in the slot with Randle and Adams outside, Amaro as the tight end, and Jerrel Jernigan as the 'Dexter McCluster' offensive weapon to be used in special sets. Would go a tremendously long way toward making things right.

We were debating heavily between Adams and Shazier, and it truly was a coin flip sort of decision. The winning factor here was Shazier's penchant for injury and smaller body size. The Giants need healthy players. That ultimately was what won us over.

12. (44)

IXI

Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State - The theme for this Rams draft is athleticism that punches you in the mouth. They got that with Greg Robinson and Calvin Pryor. They add another uber-athletic phenom in Ryan Shazier to pair him opposite last year's top pick Alec Ogletree. Shazier falls this far due to injury concerns, but the value was too great here. Having two dynamic presences at linebacker in Shazier and Ogletree allows the Rams to open things up on the defense and gives them a monstrous presence against mismatches in their division like Andre Ellington, Percy Harvin, and Vernon Davis.

13. (45)

R22

Lamarcus Joyner, DB, FSU - Let me get this out of the way now: I love Joyner. He's one of my favorite prospects to watch. He's Tyrann Mathieu without the drama. I suppose he'd be drafted as a "free safety", but I don't care what you call him. He's the type of prospect you put on the field, tell him to play, and he will make plays for you. He can play safety or cornerback, and about won the game against Clemson this year all on his own. Also, he provides commanding leadership that the Lions kinda lack.

14. (46)

IXI

Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU - I'm not the biggest fan of FSU's Kelvin Benjamin. I don't see him as a true one-on-one nightmare the same way Mike Evans is due to the lack of initial burst as well as inconsistency going up and grabbing the ball at the highest point. That being said, he's perfect for the Steelers. He can line up at tight end or wide receiver, and allow Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton to streak downfield and open things up for him. A behemoth of a player, he needs to show more consistency, but a talented coaching staff like Pittsburgh's might be the ticket he needs to become dominant.

15. (47)

R22

Tim Jernigan, DT, FSU - What the Cowboys really need they're not going to be able to get in the draft. So instead they get a defensive tackle to continue building their 4-3 front. Jernigan is an interesting player. He can take over games, but he plays like a 1-technique trapped in a 3-technique's body. However, he definitely has talent, and that's something the 'boys need more of on there defensive front.

16. (48)

IXI

Jimmie Ward, FS, Northern Illinois - The Ravens grabbed Matt Elam last year, but he's an in the box safety. They badly miss the presence of an Ed Reed-type ballhawk in the back end. Enter Jimmie Ward, the dimunitive safety that some compare to Earl Thomas because of his nose for the football. He'll fit right in and try to correct some of the pass coverage issues the Ravens suffered from last year.

17. (49)

R22

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington - The Jets finally give whoever their quarterback is a viable weapon in the passing game. ASJ is the type of threat the Jets are used to seeing lined up across from them on the Patriots. He drops due to injury and effort questions, but if he puts those behind him he can be a very good, and complete tight end.

18. (50)

IXI

Dominique Easley, DT, Florida - Aside from the aging Randy Starks and Jared Odrick, the Dolphins don't have much in the way to write about with their defensive interior. Enter Dom Easley, who, if healthy, should have been a top 10 pick. Instead, he tore his ACL and that's why he fell. He apparently is healing quite well, and could be a "Tank Carradine" type pick that potentially would pay off twice over. Imagine the interior pressure he could create along with Olivier Vernon, Cameron Wake, and Dion Jordan.

19. (51)

R22

Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St. - The Bears added a lot of explosiveness to their defensive line with their first pick, and now they add it to their secondary with their second. Roby is a fantastic athlete, and when he's on, a terrific cover corner. He was the best in the country to start the 2013 season, but he dropped because he got burned entirely too often. If he cleans up his technique and plays more consistently, this is a big steal.

20. (52)

IXI

Marcus Smith, OLB, Louisville. - The Cardinals took a risk, hoping a top-tier quarterback fell to them in the second round, but missed out. The backup plan isn't a bad one. Marcus Smith, for some reason, has fallen way under the radar but he's got tremendous bend and acceleration. He had 14.5 sacks in 13 games for the Louisville Cardinals this year thanks to that aforementioned bend and his instincts. With him rushing the quarterback opposite John Abraham, look for Arizona to stake their claim in the NFC West.

21. (53)

R22

Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU A perfect fit for that McCarthy offense, Landry will provide some eye-popping grabs and gives Aaron Rodgers another toy to play with after the loss of James Jones. Landry can play outside or in the slot and win with his impressive route tree and body control. While not as dominant as Beckham Jr. at the catch point, Landry gets open much easier. Also a brutal blocker down the field for Eddie Lacy.

22. (54)

IXI

Demarcus Lawrence, OLB, Boise State - Unlike Trent Cole and Brandon Graham, Lawrence has the movement ability to be a top 3-4 OLB. Many draft prognosticators think he's a first-round pick due to his length and polished pass rushing skills, and if they are right, the Eagles have got a steal in the mid-second round. It will go a long way to having their defense catch up to that light speed offense.

23. (55)

R22

Joel Bitonio, OL, Nevada - Bitonio is a late riser in the draft process, but he deserves it. Bitonio is athletic, plays nasty, and can slide in pretty much anywhere along the Bengals' line.

24. (56)

IXI

Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska - A bit early for SJB, but I have a gut feeling the 49ers want size out of their corners. He has some developing to do, but he's a perfect weapon against guys like Michael Floyd or Brandon Marshall. The NFL is a copy cat league and with Seattle starting the trend of big, nasty corners that bully you into submission, guys like Jean-Baptiste will go higher than in previous years.

25. (57)

R22

Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee - Every year there is a nose tackle who is overdrafted simply because there aren't that many humans that big. McCullers very well could be this year's. He is an absolute behemoth at 6-7, 350 (or heavier). He plays with power and has no problem moving double teams if he can get leverage. If not, he does not go backwards. He should be a great compliment to the rest of SD's defensive front.

26. (58)

IXI

Weston Richburg, OC, Colorado St - After losing Brian De La Puente, the Saints have no starting center. Enter Richburg. He's the best center in this year's draft and some are even talking about him sneaking up into the first round. While I definitely disagree with that, I think this is strong value at this spot. He's a strong pass protector that is athletic enough to get out in space and punish defending players on screens. Drew Brees is quite happy with this pick.

27. (59)

R22

Telvin Smith, S, FSU - Telvin Smith is a leader and a playmaker. However, he also carries the dreaded "Tweener" label. Luckily Indy could use both a safety and a linebacker, and Smith is the best of either still on the board. There is the possibility that he could fill out more and become a full-time linebacker, but as it is he is perfect for a Kam Chancellor-type role.

28. (60)

IXI

Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss - When your starting wide receivers are Jerrico Cotchery and Jason Avant, you know you're in some deep doo-doo. Moncrief steps in and instantly becomes the "X" wide receiver. Big bodied and freakishly athletic (running a 4.4 40 at 6t-2, 220 pounds), he struggles winning contested balls and doesn't run very good routes. Perfect for a vertical style offense, and Cam is going to enjoy throwing bombs to him if he gets the time.

29. (61)

R22

IXI

TRADED TO THE NEW YORK GIANTS to select Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT ND - The value and need here was too great to ignore. He was Invictus' 38th-ranked player on his board. Raptor compares him to Lamarr Houston. He's got the versatility to play at 3 and 5 technique and will allow Perry Fewell to be scheme versatile. The Giants played a decent amount of snaps in a hybrid 3-4, and with the addition of Tuitt, they could certainly do it more often.

He does his best work collapsing the pocket inwards, and thus could be exceedingly disruptive at 6-6, 305 pounds with 34.5-inch arms. He fell because of lack of need by other teams, as well as because he was somewhat out of shape and coming off hernia surgery. He doesn't have elite burst, but he generates awesome power coming off the snap and can knock offensive linemen backwards consistently. His hands are super heavy and allow him to break free. Good motor on him as well, as the Giants look to add the missing piece towards making their defense elite again.

30. (62)

IXI

Antonio Richardson, OG/OT, Tennessee - Richardson is a prototypical pick for these Patriots. They love finding the falling prospect and nabbing him late. Once thought of as a top 15 tackle, Richardson failed the offseason process and his stock began to freefall. He's got excellent upside however, as he's got pretty good feet for a man of his girth. He likely takes over for Dan Connelly at right guard where he can use his athleticism to move people off the LOS.

31. (63)

R22

Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin - If Borland was taller, he'd be gone by now. But he's under 6 feet, so he's dropping... He's not undersized though. Borland is actually an explosive athlete, and has a tremendous football IQ. He would be able to step in and start at middle linebacker, and fit perfectly next to Von Miller.

32. (64)

IXI

Scott Crichton, DE Oregon St - A powerful 6-6, 270-pound defensive end drops to Seattle. They lost Red Bryant and Chris Clemons to free agency and have nothing in the way of rotational pass rushers. On top of that, Cliff Avril is in the last year of his contract. Crichton has some developing to do, but has terrific upside as a power LDE capable of crashing the edge and overpowering the right tackle. Considered Martavis Bryant here, but didn't see as much value.
