    • Burner's Burning Questions: The Mock Drafts, 2014 (Continual Updates)


      Like previous years, BBQ will do a series of mock drafts and will provide continual updates based on team needs, free agency additions/losses, and injuries. The frequency of mocks will increase as we get closer to the draft and it will be a daily feature in the final week. Feel free to add your own ideas and mocks as we go along.

      Trying to get a feel for what a new coach will do in free agency and the draft is difficult. There is no track record, so BBQ is looking strictly at team needs and making educated guesses based on team/coach statements and what some insiders have said. Putting together a collection of talent from the college ranks by BBQ typically starts in October, but some of that research took a hit when the old regime was let go and a new coach was hired. Hopefully we can do a good job with the mocks – your help is needed and the input from members at BGO will be incorporated in future mocks. Thanks for your help.

      Team needs are OL, DL, MLB, CB, and FS. Some of these issues could be settled (somewhat) in free agency, but we will address those potential signings in future mocks. Each week, there will be mocks with and without trades. The format is a bit different than what we have seen in the past. In each round, other candidates for selection are featured.

      Round Two: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
      Moses is the latest Virginia product to continue a tradition of quality tackle prospects from President Jefferson’s university. He is a talented player who should fit in at the right tackle position.

      Other Possibilities:
      Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
      Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor
      Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
      Dion Bailey, S, USC

      Round Three: Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor
      Richardson is a big guard who can pull effectively and provide superb pass protection. Robert Griffin, III puts a good word in for his former teammate.

      Other Possibilities:
      Keith McGill, CB, Utah
      Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
      Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
      Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State

      Round Four: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
      The best pure route runner in the draft is a big bodied Badger who puts up large and consistent numbers. With wide receivers such as Garcon, Jackson, Roberts, and Abbrederis, a weakness last season becomes the best unit on the team.

      Other Possibilities:
      Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee
      Brent Urban, DE, Virginia
      Kenny Ladler, S, Vanderbilt
      Taylor Hart, DE, Oregon

      Round Five: Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State
      Bullough grades much higher, but a deep draft and a couple of issues drops him to the fifth round. The issues are behind him and the Spartan looks to replace London Fletcher.

      Other Possibilities:
      Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
      James Hurst, OT, North Carolina
      Will Clarke, DE, West Virginia
      Jordan Zumwalt, ILB/OLB, UCLA

      Round Six: DeAndre Coleman, DE/DT, California
      Coleman is a great fit at defensive end in a 3-4 scheme and has the ability to play some defensive tackle when needed. He would be a depth addition, but could become a starter within a year or two.

      Other Possibilities:
      Jay Prosch, FB, Auburn
      Tyler Larsen, C, Utah State
      T.J. Jones, WR, Notre Dame
      Charles Leno, Jr., OT, Boise State

      Round Seven: Jordan Najvar, TE, Baylor
      He rarely got targeted by the Bears as they rarely feature tight ends in the pass happy offense. When Najvar was targeted, he produced and put up good numbers. An excellent blocker and a superior special teamer is hard to pass up in the seventh round.

      Other Possibilities:
      Shaquil Barrett, OLB, Colorado State
      Dontae Johnson, FS, N.C. State
      Tim Flanders, RB, Sam Houston State
      Glenn Carson, ILB, Penn State

      Shaquille Richardson, CB, Arizona
      Keith Price, QB, Washington
      Zack Kerr, DT, Delaware
      Andrew Rodriguez, OG, Nebraska
      Ricky Havili-Heimuli, DE/DT, Oregon
      Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson
      Steele Divitto, ILB, Boston College
      Jerome Smith, RB, Syracuse
      Chris Whaley, DE, Texas
      Zac Kerin, C, Toledo
      Jonathan Dowling, FS, Western Kentucky
      Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
      Beau Allen, DT, Wisconsin
      Alfred Blue, RB, LSU
      Matt Hall, OT, Belhaven

      One item of note: Most mocks have Cyrus Kouandjio (OT, Alabama) going in the first or second rounds. BBQ has been able to learn that there are serious injury concerns and he could not be drafted at all. Adding him as an UDFA could be a steal by placing him on IR this year and letting him compete in the future.

      Once again, feel free to add your own mocks, ideas, and suggestions.
