2014 NFL Mock Draft Updated 4/4/14

  • Chicago Bears sign C Brian De La Puente - This is one of the biggest bargains of free agency. Brian De La Puente has been a starter in New Orleans for 3 years since Jonathan Goodwin left following the 2010 season. In those 3 seasons, De La Puente has been an above average starting center, grading out 12th, 2nd, and 16th among centers on [...]
  • Denver Broncos sign C Will Montgomery - This is another steal for the Broncos. I don’t know why Will Montgomery was cut by the Redskins, owed just 1.925 million dollars for the 2014 season. Since moving to be the Redskins’ starting center in 2011, Montgomery has started all 48 games and has graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 16th, 5th, and 15th [...]
  • Cleveland Browns re-sign C Alex Mack - This deal came about in a roundabout fashion. The Browns started the situation off by using the transition tag on Mack, which would have paid him roughly 10 million dollars for the 2014 season if he had signed it. That 10 million dollar sum was the average of the top-10 offensive linemen in the league. [...]
  • Houston Texans sign RB Andre Brown - There haven’t been any atrocious deals given out to running backs this off-season, but I have a feeling a lot of teams around the league who signed running backs this off-season are kicking themselves now that they see that the Texans got Andre Brown for the veteran’s minimum. Andre Brown has his share of issues. [...]
  • San Diego Chargers sign RB Donald Brown - I don’t really have much of an issue with the money here. Brown is getting 10.5 million over 3 years with 4 million over 1 year guaranteed. That compares pretty well with other contracts given to running backs this off-season,  including Darren McFadden (1 year, 4 million), Joique Bell (3 years, 9.3 million), Maurice Jones-Drew [...]
  • Jacksonville Jaguars trade QB Blaine Gabbert to San Francisco 49ers - Trade for Jaguars: Blaine Gabbert was awful in 3 seasons with the Jaguars since being taken with the 10th overall pick in 2011, proving to be one of the biggest draft busts over the past 5 or so years. He completed 53.3% of his passes for an average of 5.61 YPA, 22 touchdowns, and 24 [...]
  • Oakland Raiders sign RB Maurice Jones-Drew - Maurice Jones-Drew has seen a steep fall from his 2011 season, in which he led the NFL with 1606 rushing yards. That season, he averaged 4.7 yards per carry on 343 carries, added 43 catches for 374 yards and scored 11 times. He did all of that on an otherwise abysmal offense during Blaine Gabbert’s [...]
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade C Jeremy Zuttah to the Baltimore Ravens - Trade for Ravens: The Ravens desperately needed a new center as Gino Gradkowski struggled mightily in his first season as a starter in place of the retired Matt Birk. The 2012 4th round pick graded out as Pro Football Focus’ worst ranked center last season. Jeremy Zuttah is not a great center, grading out 22nd [...]
  • Oakland Raiders re-sign DT Pat Sims - The Raiders let a number of good, young players go this off-season, letting LaMarr Houston, Vance Walker, and Jared Veldheer leave and replacing them with aging veterans like Antonio Smith, Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley, and Donald Penn. It’s an odd strategy and use of cap space. That being said, they’re making a great move here [...]
  • Washington Redskins re-sign CB DeAngelo Hall - Last off-season, DeAngelo Hall was cut from his large contract by the Redskins and brought back on a cheap one-year deal worth about a million dollars. It made sense. He was going into his age 30 season and had graded out below average on Pro Football Focus in 4 of his last 5 seasons, dating [...]
