There are four Pac-12 players in the first round of Kiper's 2014 NFL Mock Draft. And there are two Oregon State players in the first round!

Mel Kiper 1.0 is out and ready ($), and the Internet is ready to break! Here's the latest mock draft.

6. Atlanta Falcons - Anthony Barr, OLB/DE, UCLA: The Atlanta Falcons struggled with defensive consistency this year. So Anthony Barr makes a whole lot of sense to just provide an all-around gamechanger. A lot of scouts think Barr is the best all-around player in this draft, so why not go with the flow?

18. New York Jets - Marqise Lee, WR, USC: The Jets could use some more offense, and by more offense I mean any offense. Getting a playmaker like Lee would improve one of the most anemic passing games in the league.

28. Carolina Panthers - Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.: After the Panthers offense ground to a halt in their playoff game this past weekend, getting another wide receiver to succeed Steve Smith would go a long way to improving Carolina's long-term prospects at success.

31. Denver Broncos - Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon St.: Denver's pass rush is probably where the most improvement is needed on the defensive end, and Crichton is the guy to go for here to get really good.
