There are many solid football players coming out in 2014, but some players are over hyped by the media in my opinion. I wanted to write an article where I post my five biggest “Bust” players coming out in the 2014 NFL Draft. I might be wrong later, but everyone has their own opinions.
Derek Carr – QB – Fresno State – I don’t care if this kid’s brother was the first pick, and that he has a strong arm, Derek Carr makes too many mental mistakes. I have a bad feeling about Carr, and honestly do not have him in my top 5 quarterbacks. Carr continues to rise people’s big board, but I am confused, because although he has big boy numbers, he does not impress on film.
Kyle Van Noy – DE – BYU - Can you say Aaron Maybin 2.0? I am not sold on Van Noy at all, the kid shows flashes but if a team drafts this kid anywhere higher than the third round they are making a mistake, in my opinion. I love his athleticism, but I just don’t see that “it” factor in his game, like you see with Khalil Mack and Anthony Barr.
Ka’Deem Carey – RB – Arizona – Everyone likes this speed back, but I don’t think he is as great of a back as people are claiming. I have several backs ranked ahead of Carey, and I feel that he is overrated. He has NOT declared for the NFL Draft and I think that is a good thing. Give him another year to develop and he will be removed from my list.
Louhiez Purifoy – CB – Florida – People are obsessed with the Gators corner backs, but Purifoy has not been that impressive to me. The Gators had a sophomore that looked fluid when in the game. Purifoy has great size and speed, but both corners were ate up badly this year in multiple games. Purifoy could turn into a gem, but he will need a bunch of coaching.
Jake Matthews – OT – Texas A&M – I understand the kid’s father is a legend, and that is great and all, but he doesn’t impress me. I think a team will over draft him because of his father’s name, and he will not end up being the factor they were looking for. His stock could drop before the draft.
