As a Fansided site, we are hosting an ongoing 2014 NFL Mock Draft here at Factory of Sadness with some of the Local and NFL sites.Follow along here as we complete all 32 teams First Round Picks.

#1. Houston Texans select Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville, Quarterback - The Houston Texans select Teddy Bridgewater with the first pick in the 2014 NFL draft.  The Texans are in desperate need of a young, skilled quarterback who has the potential to become their franchise guy, and Teddy Bridgewater fits that bill. It will be interesting to see if the Texans bring in a veteran to start while Teddy learns the ropes or if they plan on immediately implementing him as their starting quarterback.  Personally, I hope it’s the latter.  This kid is really fun to watch and he’s smart.  If the Texans don’t choose a quarterback for the first pick in the draft (which is asinine), I’m not sure who else they’d take.  They have so many other holes to fill it would likely be Jadeveon Clowney or an OLB before they attempted to draft any offensive linemen.

Selection Made By House of Houston. Check out more about the Texans here at their site.

#2. St. Louis Rams select Sammy Watkins, Clemson, Wide Receiver - Now I know this will sound crazy. Taking a wide receiver 2nd overall? However, he fits a need for the St. Louis Rams. Tavon Austin is a fantastic football player. However the Rams were not productive throwing the football. The St. Louis Rams ranked 27th in the NFL in passing yards. Some of that had to do with the injury to Sam Bradford but even when healthy Bradford was average at best. So if the Rams are going to gain more yards through the air, how can they do that? Getting a better quarterback is the obvious answer however that might be off the table so you get a playmaker at wide receiver that can turn a short pass into a long touchdown.

Selection Made by Arch Authority. See more details about this selection at their site here.

(Hypothetical) #2 Washington Redskins select Jake Matthews, Texas A&M, Offensive Tackle - The Washington Redskins would select Jake Matthews with the second pick. Matthews fills a need for the Washington Redskins. He will fit right in at the right tackle position. Other options for this pick include Anthony Barr, Taylor Lewan, and Greg Robinson.

Hypothetical Selection Made by All Over The Hill. Read more about their hypothetical selection here.

    I don’t know. I really like Braxton Miller here.

  • Gary Stewart

    braxton is staying in school, watkins would be great but even better for the rams after they trade down for more picks

    • Nick Flasher

      True on Watkins. And I was just knocking Buckeye Honk for overvaluing Miller.

      • Gary Stewart

        got ya as hard as it is sometimes to identfy sarcasm when people speak it is even more so when its typed w/o an lol unless of course you said clev was going to sign tim tebow as their new starting qb no lol needed there and btw i do really like sammy watkins wow

        • Nick Flasher

          I wouldnt laugh just yet, especially if McDaniels gets the job. He did bring him in to NE. Scary.

          I would definitely not have. a problem with Watkins. That guy looks legit. And then maybe the Browns will take a chance on Mettenberger in the 2nd. Not bad. A trade for Ryan Mallett isnt off the table if McDaniels comes here as well.

          • Gary Stewart

            another idea is trading up to #2 to get teddy bridgewater if houston decides to pair clowney with jj watt then teddy is there at #2, clev would then have to jump jax or teddy would be gone at #3

          • Jared Mueller

            How much would you be willing to give up for Teddy? Anyone else you would want to trade up for and how much would you move to get them?

          • Gary Stewart

            jared im a ram fan so with the 2nd pick i wouldnt want us to trade up to #1 for teddy what i was trying to say is if teddy didnt go to hou at #1 how valuable would the #2 pick be as trade down scenarios would be plentiful the only way (and it would be a shock) that the rams take bridgewater at #2 is if they cant find a trade down and decide to cut bradford and his 17.6 mil cap hit, that would however as i said come as a shock!!

          • Jared Mueller

            I think the Rams have a big decision there. Don’t see them cutting Bradford. A trade? I wonder if Teddy falls a bit this year. Last year Geno Smith was assumed #1 pick at this time and fell to the second round.

          • Gary Stewart

            to me the big difference was geno was more a product of the system he had tavon and stedman playing a spread offense and he showed flaws under pressure. teddy is a good sized fairly mobile qb who is far more accurate far more often and a better pocket passer plus while players came to genos defense that he was liked in the locker room etc the fact remains those rumors do not and have never existed about teddy

          • Jared Mueller

            I have heard some concerns about Teddy’s size so that could be an issue, height weight etc…. So strange looking back to last year at this time and what was “suppose” to happen… And this year we have an extra almost month to “prepare”

    Re Manziel too risky at 4th pick-Oh yah please brain trust do not draft him the 4 hole or in the fist round.
    Re Matthews or Clowney pique my interest Oh hell yah I would love either one as a Brownie from the 4th pick
    re Watkins at number 4 Absolutely not

  • Gary

    Any good quarterback would drool over having Josh Gordon and Sammy Watkins on the field at once.
    Defenses couldn’t cover both these guys. And still have Cameron as another choice to throw to.
    This would give Browns fans something to cheer about. Of course drafting the right quarterback will help too.
    I hope the Browns don’t take Manziel. I don’t think he is the answer. I would take Bridgewater or Bortles.
    Then take Hyde as running back and you have the start of a great offense.
    But, with the Browns history of making the wrong picks, it will be another disappointment once again.

    But, this is Cleveland. And their track record of making the wrong picks isn’t very good.
    Hopefully they open their eyes and make the right choices this year.
