The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone, which means a few standouts from Indianapolis have begun to shoot up draft boards as they continue their strong performance during draft season.

Of course, it is still only February and plenty can change between now and draft day, but the picture is becoming a little clearer.

For the purpose of this mock draft, there will be no trades though the St. Louis Rams appear to be actively seeking a trade partner for the No. 2 spot.

What prospects could be on your favorite team’s radar?

Here is a look at the latest first-round projections:

    Not a lot of wr in the first.
    Bridgewater will be in the top 5

    • joshsanchez

      I’m not a big fan of WRs in the first, but this year is different. Watkins and Evans are clearly worthy of the first-round grade, as is Lee. After that, it is just a question of how big of a need the teams feel WR is. This class is loaded, so many may wait.

    Actually one of the better mock’s I have seen.. good job… really the only question mark I had was Nix, I think GB will take a safety if one of the top two is available…

    • joshsanchez

      I went with Nix because he’s an impact player at a high area of need. As far as true NT’s go, there is a large gap between him and the next best NT. Gap is much smaller at safety, so I gave the trenches priority there.

      • bk

        If he’s healthy Nix is worth it, just worry about spending a 1st round pick on him…

      • Phillip

        A lots gonna depend on what they do in FA, if Raji or Pickett is brought back or we sign a DT we would definitely pick Pryor, even then though, at 21 Pryor would probably be even more value than Nix while filling our most pressing need. I really don’t think GB would pass on Dix or Pryor at 21 unless 1 of the top 10 picks fall, Pryor n Dix at 21 is a value and need pick. I also believe a safety would be the best thing for our D, especially Pryor because of the impact he’d have on the run game, he’s gonna be a major game changer. Also with a DL, we don’t need to risk a repeat of last season where he might need time to transition, experience would be the way to go, i’d much rather see us bring Raji back to play DT, Nix is pretty much a slower Raji.

          Pryor @ 21 is not a value pick. It’s not a reach, but some people have Nix as a top-10 player, so that’s a value pick. No one on the web has Pryor as top-10. Of course, it only matters what Green Bay has them at. ;)

    Nobody knows what’s really going to happen, there could be a run on QB’s, OT’s and even LB’s early on. If the Vikings get Bridgewater at #8, the have to pull the trigger unless they make a trade for Ryan Mallett.

  • 3kolu

    The Texans are in a similar situation to when they drafted Mario Williams. I believe Clowney could drop a little because of attitude issues.

    • Jarod Cook

      Clowney is a legit talent. He was double/tripled teamed all the time, or offenses just ran to the other side of the field from him. Watt and Clowney both have proven they can win 1 on 1 battles. And you can’t double team both of them every play. IMO it makes since to draft Clowney, and pick QB later in draft.

      • 3kolu

        No doubt he is one of the greatest athletes to compete at any level, however, he’s not the only player to be double-teamed. The question that has to be asked is if this guy is going to work towards his next contract or is he just going to collect on his rookie contract. However, I wouldn’t want to be the GM that passed on a potential HOFer.

  • Sterling Archer

    Manziel over Bridgewater…. not going to happen

  • Tyler_KC_Fan

    I think the Chiefs take Dennard before Benjamin. I used to be a big fan and wanted Benjamin but I think that if Dennard, Pryor, Gilbert or Clinton-Dix is there at 23rd we take one of them. WR we may be able to get in the 3rd, or if we trade back then the 2nd.

  • Jarod Cook

    As a Browns fan I’d be ok with draft. At #4 Watkins teamed with Gordon and Cameron, would cause havoc for defenses. But with a WR rich draft you can get guys in 2nd/3rd to play WR2. Word has it Browns like Carr, but didn’t workout at combine and needs to sit a year or two. Personal I like Garoppolo in the second if they plan on sitting a QB for a year or two. With a defensive coach and the release of DQJ i think the browns trade out of #4 to draft LB at #8-12 and get some more picks.

    • Phillip

      Don’t write off Hoyer yet, he should be the day 1 starter n he could be an answer for a couple years so a developmental QB could be the way to go later in the draft. Hoyer should some solid potential n the more weapons added, the better he might be, don’t be surprised if he’s lighting it up next season. I like that Watkins pick, hopefully they’ll get Hyde to fall to em in the 2nd round, wouldn’t be surprised if they use the 2nd 1st on Hyde, that wouldn’t be bad either.

      • Jarod Cook

        I agree with you Hoyer should be day 1 starter. If they can improve the OL, grab a sure handed WR2 in draft or free agency, should have a productive year. I’ve said all along wait till 2nd/3rd to grab a QB, and let him develop behind Hoyer. As an OSU fan I’m not completely sold on Hyde. He had Miller in the same backfield, as well as played a slew of pathetic defense in the B10 and powder puff scheduling. I like Mason of AUB, as well as Hill from LSU same style of runners and they can get them late 2nd/early 3rd.
