2014 NFL Draft Big Board: Evan Sidery’s Top 100 Prospects (Part Two)

81. Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida*

Roberson was opposite Loucheiz Purifoy in Florida’s defense and shined as a number two corner. He has the size to be a good corner in a man defense with his talent alone. He will be a project, but if molded right he could shine.

82. Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Georgia*

With raw, explosive ability to be a downfield threat, Mitchell can be a nice target for NFL teams. He can also run the route tree very well with the ability to take short and intermediate routes to the house. Mitchell could rise up my board with a little bit more seasoning on the field.

83. LaMarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State

Joyner is a small corner listed at 5’8″, but is a tenacious defender. He can get into receivers with jam moves and press at the line of scrimmage. Joyner could also stay off and shadow on the wideout as well. Joyner could move up my board if he has a breakout year.

84. Vinnie Sunseri, SS, Alabama*

Vinnie is a good run-stuffer in the box and could also defend wideouts in the slot as well. Sunseri has played the “star” and “money” position in Alabama’s defense, which shows his versatility. He is one of the main guys in Alabama’s secondary now, so we will see if he can shine in the spotlight.

85. Gabe Ikard, OC, Oklahoma

He shows a good read for defenses by calling out correct line calls. Ikard hows a good anchor in pass-protection and can get to the second level in the running game. Ikard could eventually be my No. 1 center if he leads Oklahoma’s line to a top statistical season.

86. Bryn Renner, QB, North Carolina

Renner has good size for the quarterback position at 6’3″. He flashes an adequate arm with above-average accuracy down the field. If Renner can prove his worth again in the ACC this season, he could be on the rise in my next big board.

87. Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU*

Hill is eligible as a redshirt sophomore as he is three years out of high school. Even though he was just in trouble for committing battery, I still like Hill’s pro potential. He is a powerful, north-to-south runner who loves to create contact. If he can rack up a 1,000-yard season for LSU, I expect him to bolt after the 2013 season.

88. Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami

Henderson has the perfect frame to be a top-flight right tackle at 6’8″ and 336 pounds. He has solid fundamentals as a pass-protector and could get nasty in the run game if needed. If Henderson can stay focused, he could be a first-round pick come April.

89. Ed Reynolds, FS, Stanford*

Reynolds was a stalwart in Stanford’s secondary last year with 6 interceptions, three of which were returned for touchdowns. Ed is a ballhawk with great vision to follow the ball right into his hands. Also, he shadows well on the outside and in the slot as well.

90. Craig Loston, SS, LSU

Loston is a player you can stack in the box and use him as an asset against the run. Loston can also cover in the slot and have great success there as he had three interceptions last season. In the back end, Loston could roam if needed to track down the ball.

91. Demarcus Lawrence, DE, Boise State*

Lawrence could be moved to outside linebacker once in the NFL, but is a terror against offensive tackles in pass-rushing situations. Even though he had 9.5 sacks last season, Lawrence was also suspended twice by Boise State for violating team rules. If he can stay out of trouble, Lawrence could be a major mover up the big board by midseason.

92. C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa

Fiedorowicz is a matchup nightmare for any defense in college football. At 6’7″, he can go up and high-point the ball at its apex. Fiedorowicz could also be a monster in the red zone. If he can continue to improve his route running a little more (former basketball player), he could be another big riser come October.

93. Deshazor Everett, CB, Texas A&M*

Everett goes hot and cold at times, but when he is on his game he could be a lockdown corner. In man coverage, Everett could shadow a wideout and take him completely out of the game. He was a key factor in the Aggies’ win over Alabama last season to hand the Crimson Tide their first loss.

94. Cyril Richardson, OT/OG, Baylor

Richardson is a versatile lineman who could be a top right guard or swing out to right tackle. Richardson plays at tackle right now, but I believe he fits much better as a guard in the NFL. If he can have another dominant season at Baylor, then he should be in contention to be a first-round pick next year.

95. Silas Redd, RB, USC

Redd has had major injury issues which could knock him down a lot of teams’ boards come 2014, but he has the talent to be a starter. He will not be a bell cow back in the NFL, but should be an impact player in a rotation. If Redd can have a healthy year, and that is a big if, then he could rise up the big board.

96. Ben Gardner, DE, Stanford

Gardner does not just have a luscious mullet, but is a great football player as well. He is above average against the run and also has a nice bull rush move to help him get to the quarterback on passing downs. Gardner will be one of the big reasons Stanford has a chance to win a conference championship with their tough defense.

97. Damien Williams, RB, Oklahoma

He is an explosive back who could take any run to the end zone. Oklahoma will rely on a top running game led by Williams next season with Landry Jones gone. Williams can also be a major asset as a receiver, as he averaged over 10 yards per catch last season.

98. Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

Mettenberger has a cannon of an arm and great accuracy when he is on his game. In new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s offense, he should thrive next season. He will be used in a pro-style offense, which should help ease his transition to the NFL in 2014. Mettenberger could be a big riser in October if can show he is not just a game manager, but a game changer.

99. LaDarius Perkins, RB, Mississippi State

LaDarius is a pure athlete on the field as he could be an asset as a running back or as a returner. Perkins shows great vision and explosiveness when in the backfield. He likely will not start off as a starter right away in the NFL, but he should make a major impact on offense or special teams for many years. Lets see if Perkins can prove his worth this season and move up my next big board with a great performance for Mississippi State next season.

100. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU*

I am a little bit higher on Beckham Jr. then most due to his potential to be a No. 1 wideout right away for an NFL team. He had 40 receptions last season for LSU and he looks to even have more of a breakout season in a pro-style offense under Cam Cameron. Beckham Jr. also will be a major threat to take a return to the house. I had to put Odell in the top 100 due to his jack-of-all-trades-like feel he puts onto LSU’s offense. Beckham Jr. could be one of my highest risers after the 2013-2014 season.


Be on the lookout for my next big board in the middle of the season (October). What were your thoughts on my big board? Were there any snubs or players rated too high? Let us know in the comments section below.
