    Early Mock 2014

    My first mock... I didn't use current draft order... a best guess as to where things would end up (I did not put a ton of effort/thought into it).... and yes, the Steelers pick is my hope/prayer.

    Pick Team Player Pos School
    1 JAX Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
    2 TB Marcus Mariotta QB Oregon
    3 NYG Jadaveon Clowney DE South Carolina
    4 MIN Brett Hundley QB UCLA
    5 HOU Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M
    6 STL Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
    7 OAK Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
    8 ARI Cyrus Kouandjio OT Alabama
    9 CLE Taj Boyd QB Clemson
    10 PIT Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
    11 TEN Anthony Barr OLB UCLA
    12 ATL Bradley Roby CB Ohio St
    13 STL(WAS) CJ Mosley LB Alabama
    14 PHI Louis Nix DT Notre Dame
    15 BUF Ifo Ekpre-Olomu CB Oregon
    16 BAL Marqise Lee WR USC
    17 CAR Jason Verrett CB TCU
    18 CHI Khalil Mack OLB Buffalo
    19 MIA Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee
    20 NYJ Jordan Mattthews WR Vanderbilt
    21 SD Darquez Dennard CB Michigan St
    22 DET Haha Clinton-Diz S Alabama
    23 DAL A Seferian Jenkins TE Washington
    24 NE Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    25 GB Stephon Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    26 CIN Kyle Van Noy OLB BYU
    27 SF Trent Murphy DE Stanford
    28 CLE(IND) David Yankey OG Stanford
    29 NO Cameron Irving OT FSU
    30 KC Eric Ebron TE North Carolina
    31 DEN Lamarcus Joyner CB FSU
    32 SEA Chris Smith DE Arkansas

    Why would dallas take ASJ? They just drafted Escobar in the second.

    Watkins is the perfect pick, you know so antonio can fit comfortably into his #2 role ;-)

    good point on dallas

    #2 is not a role... it's a label used to misconstrue talent
    Antonio would move into the "wes welker role"

    Brown, Wheaton, Watkins.... in roles that would create a dynamic offense:

    Watkins would be your Split End, running deep ins/outs/digs.... and going over the middlewith mid routes that bank tons of YAC... He has the size to play on the line and beat press coverage

    Brown would line up everywhere and anywhere and just completely abuse zone coverages while catching 100 balls a year.

    Wheaton would be the Flanker, taking the top off of routes while Brown worked in the zones those routes create. He'd play off the line creating the space to let his speed loose and protect him from jams.

    And then a healthy Miller casually working the middle seams and soft LBer zones...

    dreamz

    anyways... this has nothing to do with the Brown argument. If you want to talk about roles/positions that's different than labels.

    I assure you i understand split ends and flankers lol. Brown does have the bulk and speed to play outside, but hes much better suited inside with the ability run in/out out of the slot....not something i consider a "#1" WR.

    But hey, if he makes late game grabs to put them in FG range to beat the ravens, you can call him whatever you want
