In NFL.com's latest mock of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, a total of five Pac-12 players are drafted. One is the obvious player, two have been circuated around here for awhile, and a few surprises are making their way up the board.
3rd pick - Anthony Barr (UCLA), outside linebacker to Jacksonville Jaguars: Jacksonville has no pass rush whatsoever. Barr should fix this in a hurry.
13th pick - Marqise Lee (USC), wide receiver to St. Louis Rams: St. Louis is very good in multiple aspects, but they have no playmakers out there and their passing game needs work.
21st pick - Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Washington) tight end to Green Bay Packers: Green Bay needs to be prepared for a replacement for Jermichael Finley, and getting an offensive weapon like Seferian-Jenkins could go a long way.
26th pick - Paul Richardson (Colorado) wide receiver to Cleveland Browns: Cleveland could use an excellent offensive weapon to try and upgrade their anemic passing game. Richardson is a value option here.
28th pick - Brandin Cooks (Oregon State) wide receiver to Carolina Panthers: Carolina’s passing game got shut down with a gimpy Steve Smith. Grabbing a receiver like Cooks might provide that extra offensive punch.
