(3 Round) 2014 NFL Mock Draft – December 2.0

Well, there is still a while to go before the actual NFL Draft in May 2014. With that said, here is another mock draft…

…although in this mock, I did a little more “forecasting” (okay, not too much more) than you’ll find in most mock draft at this particular time.

A lot of the mocks you see – and rightfully so, since it’s so far in advance – contain most of the same look, with the same 40 players (or so) mocked in a similar pattern over the Top 32 picks. Therefore, in this mock – I took a different approach and tried my best to give a – not current, but – future look at what could happen come next May. We always see the ‘front runners’ in these early mocks, but Im projecting, a twist if you will, of what I think could transpire as the draft moves closer (around combine time) to give this mock a different feel. I made this a 3 Round version for your pleasure, with a lot of underclassmen.

So, as you can probably guess this idea of forecasting is “calling for cloudiness” because of all the eligible underclassmen I have in this projection. I wanted to do a ‘future look’ (and I did), but it’s only truly accurate if every single one of this underclassmen declare…and Im no fortune teller. Therefore, I should use the term (or idea of) forecasting a little more loosely until a final list of underclassmen is set – and such, I can more accurately excluded those underclassmen returning to school instead of projecting them, but hey – Im doing it now…so I only excluded those who have announced that they’d return to school thus far.

Regardless, I think you’ll find an interesting take and hopefully see my idea behind this mock.

Geno Smith was widely considered the No.1 overall pick around this time last year, and wound up being a 2nd round pick. We are going to be wrong a lot of times, and we’re not going to know what teams board exactly look like – so much so that it seems rather silly to even do a mock this far out. However, I like doing them because they’re fun – but I also now that Im going to be wrong. Heck, I was high on Alabama defense lineman Jesse Williams last year (I included him in my final mock as a 1st rounder – wrong!) and he ended up a 5th rounder. Im not trying to be right, but I am hoping to to provide an accurate (realistic) account of what “could” happen based on value and team need. It just so happens in this mock – Im forecasting/projecting where value may be at a later date (based on current pool of players declared, or rather still undecided) in such a way that test my own expectations, or draftnik skills.

So, yes – it’s December (Im using that draft order, and pool of players), but Im approaching this mock like it was say…March, or later. I’ll have to reference this come a later date to see how I did – although, I am including a lot of underclassmen that will surely return to school.

9 thoughts on “(3 Round) 2014 NFL Mock Draft – December 2.0

  1. personally, I’d go with Jordan Matthews over Lee @ 25. I just think CLE would benefit from a Marshall/Jeffrey set-up. Two BIG receivers to give DBs fits.

    • I understand that reasoning, and I do agree that it’s an interesting combination option. I could see them doing what you say – I just can’t see them taking a receiver over Lee if he is available at that point. Lee is arguable a Top 15 player (despite an injury filled season), so he offers good value at that point. If they go WR – I could only see them going Matthews (who I think is a fine receiver himself) if Lee has already been taken.

  2. No way Allen Robison falls that far…. You also have a lot of guys way toooo high..

    • Robinson has had a good year, and very well could be selected higher. I think he is worthy of a higher selection than a 3rd Round spot, my only concern is that WR’s in general are a risk with high picks. You’ve saw a trend where wideout tend to slip a little bit further than expected. So while his combination of hands and size are very intriguing – the overall consensus that “you can wait to get a WR” or “its easier to find lesser known guys at the position” (i.e. Kenbrell Thomkins among many others) could hurt the 2nd tier prospects overall placement. Also, outside of the “sure-fire” Top 1 or 2, maybe 3 player at the position – the 4 to 12 range guys are usually pretty enter-changeable.

    • On the other players…like I said, current projections will differ slightly from this mock. I took a look ahead, and tried to forecast future projection.

      I intend to place prospects higher, or lower, than you typically see them – at this point in time.

  3. Anonymous on said:

    garbage

    • Welllll, that’s not nice.

      Oh well though…..I didn’t plan on meeting everyones expectations. Im sorry you feel that way, but I stand behind my work and projections. It’s much easier to criticize than to actually put your work out (or put the time in to producing the work) for others to judge.

      Thanks for looking it over – I don’t mind your disregard for it as much as love the positive results that I’ve received about it.

  4. So….

    Im not too far off with Hundley. As Ive stated, I think he’s easily the best Prospect.
