Early Look @ 2014 NFL Draft
Real early look at the 2014 NFL draft. Pretty sure everyone might agree with the #1 pick, people knew that in October this past year with how great he was. If he does anything like he did last year and has not injury issues, he should be there. Tons of skilled receivers in this draft potentially, and with the Dyer situation in question a running back is hard to find at an elite level yet. And I like a lot of the offensive tackles as well, corner is a little weak though.
And it is all just crazy projection but fun to do right after this year is finished.

If the trend of small slot receivers and change of pace guys keeps up, that will really help the likes of DeAnthony Thomas, Dri Archer and Venric Mark. Normally guys like that would never go 1st round in the draft. However they will all have to improve their route running ability to become a true slot receiver and learn to play without the ball in their hands as a running back. Be interesting how Denard Robinson translates to the NFL, that could tell a lot, because like these players he is a better running back than receiver arguably.
Players I had that almost made that 1st round cut and are in the conversation.

Nix is your #9 guy and Tuitt isn't in your top 32?
Anthony Barr and Jordan Matthews are my man crushes.
Matthews is my #1 WR. Lee and Watkins can take it.
Matthews would be my #1 OT and no one should be ahead of Bridgewater including Clowney
Tim Cornett third round.
Like IrishFan said, Tuitt is better than Nix.
Randall Telfer is on the same level as Grimble. USC is very blessed to have a great pair of TE's.
Zach Mettenberger is absolute garbage.
also you forgot Will Sutton
I also feel like David Fales is one of the QB's who is gonna open some eyes next year.
Look out for RB James Wilder form FSU as well.
Moncrief and Aaron Morris are legit. After no Rebels drafted this year, they both should be taken early next year. Maybe Nick Brassell too. I think Cody Prewitt will come back for his senior year but he is an awesome talent. Bo Wallace could do wonders for his stock this season if he improves his decision making.
If Jeff Driskel is on your top QB's list or even close to it then I believe you have never watched him. HE BETTER TAKE ONE HUGGGGEEEEEEEEEEE LEAP next year even to be considered anywhere close to the top 6 rounds of the draft.
Aside from Bridgewater it is FAR to early to tell who the top QBs will be. There's like 6-7 who can legitimately become 1st round picks, or none of them! It will be an interesting season. I'm going to pay more attention this year since I was clearly off about a couple guys value (namely Barkley and Bray).
You forgot next year's E.J. Manuel...
Mr. Stephen Morris
He just got arrested but Jeremy Hill from LSU, and Lache Seastrunk should be in the conversation at RB.
Kevin Hogan from Stanford deserves to be in the conversation at QB as well. Although I doubt he comes out next year after only a season and a half starting, but he could be a guy that challenges Bridgewater for that #1 spot.
No Ka'deem Carey?
Logan Thomas...bleh...another year of hearing **** about him - dude sucks so much dick
