2014 NFL Mock Draft: Final Pac-12 Perspective mock draft of 2014

A last second mock draft focusing on the top Pac-12 prospects in the draft.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

1. Houston - Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina

2. St. Louis - Greg Robinson T Auburn

3. Jacksonville - Khalil Mack LB Buffalo

4. Cleveland - Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M

5. Oakland - Sammy Watkins WR Clemson

6. Atlanta - Jake Matthews T Texas A&M

7. Tampa Bay - Mike Evans WR Texas A&M

8. Minnesota - Blake Bortles QB UCF

9. Buffalo - Taylor Lewan T Michigan

10. Detroit - Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State

11. Tennessee - Anthony Barr LB UCLA

Barr has been pegged here for a long time now. I like him as much as any player in the draft, but he has seemed to do nothing but slide since the season ended. Regardless, the Titans need a pass-rusher and I think Barr will be a major steal if he falls outside of the Top 10.

12. NYGiants - Zack Martin G Notre Dame

13. St. Louis - Hasean Clinton-Dix S Alabama

14. Chicago - Calvin Pryor S Louisville

15. Pittsburgh - Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State

16. Dallas - Aaron Donald DT Pittsburgh

17. Baltimore - Jimmie Ward S Northern Illinois

18. NYJets - Eric Ebron TE North Carolina

19. Miami - Morgan Moses T Virginia

20. Arizona - Derek Carr QB Fresno State

21. Green Bay - C.J. Mosley LB Alabama

22. Philadelphia - Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State

I think the pack of Beckham, Cooks, Latimer and Lee is pretty much even and I think Chip Kelly might take Cooks or Lee, seeing first hand just how much they could devastate a defense when he was at Oregon. Cooks has a few less question marks around him than Lee right now after Lee spent much of 2013 injured.

23. Kansas City - Odell Beckham Jr. WR LSU

24. Cincinnati - Bradley Roby CB Ohio State

25. San Diego - Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech

26. Cleveland - Jason Verrett CB TCU

27. New Orleans - Kony Ealy DE Missouri

28. Carolina - Cyrus Kouandijo T Alabama

29. New England - RaShede Hageman DT Minnesota

30. San Francisco - Marqise Lee WR USC

It is crazy for me to think that Lee could easily slip out of the first round, but all it would really take in my mock for that to happen is for one more receiver to move ahead of him. Lee's stock may still be slipping, but I think a team like the 49ers or Seahawks, who desperately need a big play receiver will scoop him up if he is still around late in the first.

31. Denver - Ryan Shazier LB Ohio State

32. Seattle - Xavier Su'a-Filo G UCLA

Su'a-Filo's stock is rising heading into the draft, with some putting him up near the mid-first, but the lack of demand for guards should push him down a little further than that. The Seahawks need help at guard and lucky for them, one as talented as Su'a-Filo should still be available.

2nd Round

33. Houston - Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville

34. Washington - Louis Nix DT Notre Dame

35. Cleveland - Carlos Hyde RB Ohio State

36. Oakland - Timmy Jernigan DT Florida State

37. Atlanta - Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame

38. Tampa Bay - Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois

39. Jacksonville - Kyle Van Noy LB BYU

40. Minnesota - Dee Ford DE Auburn

41. Buffalo - Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE Washington

Seferian-Jenkins‘ stock had done nothing but slip since the end of the season due to injuries sidelining him much of the off-season but it sounds like his recent showcases for teams has properly shown his potential and he is back to being a near first round pick. The Bills need playmakers for E.J. Manuel and the massive Seferian-Jenkins could be the perfect prospect to be his go-to guy that can go up and make any catch.

42. Tennessee - Bishop Sankey RB Washington

Sankey might be the best running back prospect in this draft, but he also could be like the tenth, I really don't know as the top backs are all in one giant pack in my opinion. The Titans really need one of those top backs with Chris Johnson gone, and getting a fellow ex-Husky to join Jake Locker in the Tennessee backfield could be their choice.

43. NYGiants - Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame

44. St. Louis - Cody Latimer WR Indiana

45. Detroit - Kelvin Benjamin WR Florida State

46. Pittsburgh - DeMarcus Lawrence DE Boise State

47. Dallas - Scott Crichton DE Oregon State

Crichton fell just a tiny bit after being a guy who looked like he could be a late-first round pick in the early off-season, but not too far as a guy size and a motor at a valuable position. The Cowboys really need a pass rusher and with guys like Ealy and Ford off the board, Crichton would be the best choice.

48. Baltimore - JaWuan Jones T Tennessee

49. NYJets - Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt

50. Miami - Chris Borland LB Wisconsin

51. Chicago - Kareem Martin DE North Carolina

52. Arizona - LaMarcus Joyner CB Florida State

53. Green Bay - Jace Amaro TE Texas Tech

54. Philadelphia - Trent Murphy LB Stanford

Murphy seems like a major make or break player that is either going to make someone look brilliant for taking a risk on his tweener profile in the second round, or quickly disappear as a player who didn't really fit a true NFL position. Chip Kelly needs a pass-rusher, and like Cooks or Lee, Murphy is a guy that he is more than familiar with.

55. Cincinnati - Joel Bitonio T Nevada

56. San Francisco - Marcus Martin C USC

Martin is starting to stand out as the clear-cut top center in the draft and it looks like he made an excellent decision declaring early for the draft. The 49ers are one of the few teams that could really use a center in this draft and I would expect them to use one of their second round picks to make sure they can get the top one on the board.

57. San Diego - Jeremiah Attaochu LB Georgia Tech

58. New Orleans - Carl Bradford LB Arizona State

Guys who can get after the passer with the athleticism and hustle of Bradford simply don't stick around in the draft that long, even if he isn't that big. The Saints could use another dynamic pass rusher to accompany Ealy and Bradford would be the best available at the end of the second.

59. Indianapolis - Keith McGill CB Utah

One of the fastest risers in the entire draft, McGill played just one year of cornerback and battled injuries in college but is becoming a hot commodity due to his ideal, 6'3 205 size. The Colts don't get a pick until 59 in and they really need a cornerback and McGill will be the best of the bunch after all of the elite prospects are off of the board in the first.

60. Carolina - Davante Adams WR Fresno State

61. San Francisco - Bashaud Breeland CB Clemson

62. New England - Weston Richburg C Colorado State

63. Denver - David Yankey G Stanford

Yankey's stock has seemed to fluctuate leading up to the draft more than just about any other Pac-12 prospect in this draft. The Broncos clearly need some help up front with how badly Seattle's defense carved them up front and a two-time All-American like Yankey would be an excellent choice.

64. Seattle - Marcus Smith DE Louisville
