Welcome to my 2014 NFL Draft breakdown.
I love the Draft, it comes around my birthday, ESPN puts baseball back where it belongs, in segment 3, and it means the NFL year has started.
So lets go down the NFL Rosters and see how it went for each team.
What I said then: He’s 5’11, Again, my wife is a MONSTER LSU fan, so I’ve seen a TON of his games, and he has that LSU thing where he can make some unreal catches, and drop a few. Don’t expect him to block either.
What I think now: I wonder if he’ll want to go inside, he seems to like staying on the outside and close to sidelines. I question how he’s gonna react to getting popped everytime he catches the ball.
Round 2 Pick 43
Weston Richburg C Colorado State
Smart player with good hand movement, and works well in both passing and running plays, not a spectacular player- but should have a solid career in the NFL for the next 5-6 years until someone decides they need a better center since this one never gets on any all-Pro teams. Solid base-hit pick.
Round 3 Pick 74
Jay Bromley DT Syracuse
I was not impressed with him at the ‘Cuse. He got called for jumping way to often and he can get shoved out of the way. If he gets going though he’s hard to move out of the way, so he could see the rotation, but this guy was a day early.
Round 4 Pick 113
Andre Williams RB Boston College
Man what to do with this guy. He can be a star when his body holds up and his conditioning is there. I wouldn’t trust him in the 4th Quarter unless he’s rested. But he can be a beast if he gets through into the second level. The talent is there, and could be a guy due a big raise in a few years or driving a taxi in Boston.
Another reach, he’s only 5’10, but is going to have to play FS since he’s not that big a hitter. I think he ends up as a very good package corner playing center feild. I think he’s a special team star in the making, though.
Round 5 Pick 174
Devon Kennard OLB USC
Say it with me now, reach. Coverage might be his best asset as a weakside linebacker, but he might be giving up a lot of size against the new breed of TE in the NFL. He needs to add some muscle in the worst way, or he’s due to play on 3rd down only either bumrushing the QB or working the TE. Might not be seen this year.
Round 6 Pick 187
Bennett Jackson CB Notre Dame
Was supposed to be a great receiver coming to South Bend, but ended up moving to CB and did better than expected, so I have to give him credit there, but is still learning the position. I could see him sticking and maybe starting later in the year as he improves, but he just doesn’t have the speed to be a top corner. Maybe a package standout.
I can see two starters here in the first two picks- but there are a TON of reaches here. I mean there is a ton of guys that were a round or two early. There are major flags with EVERY PICK but Richburg in this draft- and its conceivable he’s the only one to see a second contract in the NFL. I do like Berhe though, but there is a TON of potential here as well.

Dan Fox LB Notre Dame
