Just when I thought I was done with all forms of mock drafts, they pull me back in. The 2014 NFL draft is just one day away, so to celebrate in a sick and twisted way, I mocked the first round of the draft. Using the latest draft talk and look at team needs, I put together my first and only full first-round projection for the 2014 draft.

Perhaps it’s the draftnik in me since I’ve said this about every position, but there is intriguing talent throughout this year’s draft class of defensive ends. In a league where pass-rush and stout defensive line play is at a premium, the defensive end position is among the most important to have a great rotation at.

I don’t recall a draft with more mixed opinions, projections and grades than this year’s, which should make for an exciting draft in May that is full of unpredictability. With one of the deepest draft classes I have evaluated, there is talent to be had in every round and ample opportunity for teams to fill holes and acquire talent.

Though the 2014 NFL Draft is still more than three months away, Saturday’s Senior Bowl was the last opportunity to watch any top prospects take the field in a fully-padded, 60-minute football game.

The game itself was only one part of the evaluation process that took place this week in Mobile, Ala., and the Senior Bowl itself is just a small part of each participating player’s evaluation. Still, the game gave each prospect playing in it a chance to stand out.

A strong performance Saturday meant little to any prospect who didn’t show the same ability in actual college football games and in Senior Bowl practices earlier this week. A few players, however, further proved their ability from strong collegiate careers and standout practices by making big plays on gameday.

2014 Senior Bowl: Day 1 Notes and Quotes

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

From morning weigh-ins to media night, there was plenty to see and hear for the NFL coaches, scouts, executives, media and at the two practices in between, the fans, during the Monday kickoff of Senior Bowl week.

With no full pads, players just getting used to working with one another and their coaches, and a schedule/travel situation that made it virtually impossible to see the entirety of both of Monday’s practice sessions, they might not have been as quite as valuable as those to come Tuesday and Wednesday. Still, the players on the field knew full well that their every move was up for evaluation, and some shined while others struggled.
