NFL mock draft 2014: Xavier Su’a-Filo, Brandin Cooks, Austin Seferian-Jenkins first rounders?

Christian Petersen

We have five Pac-12 players who could be drafted in this latest mock of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Xavier Su’a Filo, UCLA Bruins offensive lineman: With Su’a Filo entering the NFL Draft, he becomes one of the most coveted offensive linemen out there. Su’a Filo has the quickness and the strength to be an excellent NFL guard.

SB Nation projection, No. 13 to St. Louis Rams: Su'a-Filo has the type of movement skills to climb boards throughout the pre-draft process. His versatility will be welcome in St. Louis, where injuries seem to be a given on the offensive line.

Anthony Barr, UCLA Bruins linebacker: Barr was considered the best Pac-12 player on the board before the year started. His pure athleticism and skill will probably keep him in the first round, but a lot of other players will be fighting him for that top spot.

SB Nation projection, No. 22 to Philadelphia Eagles: Despite his first step and length, he still lacks some of the natural movement skills required to be a dominant player on the edge. He struggles to make tackles in space and lacks secondary pass rush moves. If anyone will appreciate Barr's speed and fit for the 3-4 defense, however, it could be Chip Kelly. He could use Barr similarly to how he used Dion Jordan at Oregon.

Marqise Lee, USC Trojans wide receiver: Lee is right in that group of elite Pac-12 offensive weapons who should be picked up in the first day of the draft.

SB Nation projection, No. 23 to Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs could use more speed on the outside. Dwayne Bowe is a physical wide receiver who can stretch the defense at times, but Marqise Lee would provide the ability to make plays after the catch and really test defenses over the top.

Brandin Cooks, Oregon St. Beavers wide receiver: Cooks took advantage of an outstanding season and sold high for the draft. Cooks could be an outstanding speedster wide receiver and might very well be a future number one option for a team looking for a big play wideout.

SB Nation projection, No. 27 to New Orleans Saints: Marques Colston isn't getting any younger, so keeping the wide receiver depth chart stocked with young talent should be a priority in New Orleans.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington Huskies tight end: Seferian-Jenkins is one of those players who projects to be an outstanding tight end once he gets to the next level. He has excellent physical talents but struggled with a pedestrian 2013 season. He has all the skill to be good though.

SB Nation projection, No. 32 to Seattle Seahawks: Seferian-Jenkins was once considered the top tight end in this draft class, but his play as a junior did not live up to the hype. He's still an intriguing prospect because of his size and ability to high-point the football, though.
