Every year the NFL Draft if important for the Cleveland Browns. Every year it seems like the most important draft in memory. Every year the hopes and dreams of a rabid fan base fall on this one event, that now spans 3 days. We here at FoS LOVE IT too. Friday we completed our Browns 7 Round 2014 NFL Mock Draft. Yesterday we covered a very interesting covered a very interesting 4 round Mock Draft that had the Browns taking Mike Evans at #4, and interesting players on down the line. Today we give you our Weekly FoS 2014 NFL Mock Draft: 1st Round.
We use FanSpeak for our 7 rounder but this Mock Draft is a combination of what we think teams will and should do. If we think a team should draft a wide receiver but have no indication or history that they ever would we avoid mocking a WR there. The opposite applies as well. This draft is unique in that there are a number of players that could go high but where they go is very up in the air. There tends to be a few “rules” of thumb going around on the top picks so lets hash them out here:
- Texans: Blake Bortles or Jadeveon Clowney
- Rams: Trade down, Greg Robinson or Sammy Watkins.
- Jaguars: Clowney, Khalil Mack or a QB.
- Browns: QB, Watkins, Clowney or Robinson
- Raiders: Clowney, Robinson, or QB.
- Falcons: Trade up for Clowney, Robinson, Mack or Jake Matthews
Not that we agree with these, and obviously the farther down the draft you go the more “rules” there are. We placed those in order of the current perceptions. Now on to our 1st round Mock starting on the next page.
