Taking a Look at Peter King’s Top 10 2014 NFL Mock Draft


Peter King has his long Monday Morning Quarterback weekly in the season and off-season, though he has some guest writers in the summer, that goes over a variety of things from the NFL. This week’s was especially interesting for Cleveland Browns fans as he went over the Jon Harbaugh situation. King also gave his version of a 2014 NFL Mock Draft, a Top 10 version. With it he had Blake Bortles going #1 and then two non-QBs at #2 and 3 leaving the Browns with a choice of either Johnny Manziel or Teddy Bridgewater. He gives no explanation for any of the picks but has the Browns selecting….

Cleveland: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville.

For the Browns, if they are sold on a QB in this year’s draft this may be the best case scenario, having 2 QBs left on the board when they pick. Worst case, assuming no one trades up with the Rams or the Rams go away from Sam Bradford, is that the Browns are left to select the remaining QB of the 3 available. More and more information has come out that very few people are sold on any of these 3 QBs as franchise guys. Is it possible they slide out of the Top 5? 10?

Selecting Bridgewater would give the Browns a secure future, one with questioned upside, but a known commodity. Selecting Manziel would give the Browns a flash with a low floor but possibly unlimited ceiling. Many Browns faithful, including some FoS readers and commentors want the Browns to select Sammy Watkins. What if the Browns do select Watkings, and 1 of the top 3 QBs does start to slide? Could we see the type of trade suggested earlier today, but instead of for a WR its for one of the QBs? Could the Browns leave the 2014 NFL Draft with Watkins and one of the big 3? Could you dream of a scenario where most/all fans are happy?

If you had to pick a QB, maybe because the owner said so, which would you take? Why? Do you think King’s top 4 makes sense with the information we have today?
