clowneyWho is your favorite player in the 2014 NFL Draft?  We have a compiled a list of our top 5 overall players.  Basically our big board so to speak for the top five players in the 2014 NFL Draft.  Will there be a quarterback on the list?  Read more to find out….

The best all around player in this draft has not changed for us, it has been an easy and simple answer.  Jadeveon Clowney the 6’5, 266 defensive end from South Carolina, might be the best defensive prospect to enter the draft in the past ten years.  The guy is a freak athlete, and has tons of passion for the game.  While people criticize his work ethic on the field, you cannot criticize his athletic ability. I feel he will be a Pro-Bowler in the NFL for years to come.  Teams are going to be afraid of this kid, because he can beat you so many different ways.

Sammy Watkins is the second best overall player in this draft.  Watkins has great speed, great hands, and he gets so much separation he is extremely hard to cover.  I love Watkins and what he is capable of doing at the next level.  The former Fort Myers, Florida standout has the potential to be the biggest star from the area since Deion Sanders.  I love what Watkins does on the field, and expect him to be an immediate impact player.

When you think of offensive tackles in an NFL Draft you have to look at the past 10 years to realize how many guys in the first round were busts.  Well if you do not want to bust on a player you have to take Jake Matthews.  The kid with an amazing family pedigree is going to be a very solid run/pass blocker in the next year for years.  He is by far the best offensive tackle in this draft and it is not close.

Khalil Mack from little the little University of Buffalo might have the best motor of any player in the 2014 NFL Draft.  Khalil Mack is a special talent, if you watched him play against THE Ohio State Buckeyes, the kid killed the team single handedly.  This kid is special, has a great motor, and will be the best player to ever come out of the Bulls program.  Whoever lands Mack will get a superb pass rusher that has speed and agility combined with power.  Another special talent!

Okay, Okay, you want a quarterback right?  Well here you go, Teddy Bridgewater is by far the best quarterback in this draft class, but he is not my fifth player.  My fifth best player is Greg Robinson the offensive tackle from Auburn. I could not place a quarterback in this top five because I do not feel there is one capable of being a “Franchise” quarterback.  Greg Robinson on the other hand can be a “Franchise” left tackle.  So I take the tackle over the second tier quarterback class.
