With free agents starting to be signed by their respective teams and released players signing with new teams, it’s time to make some updates to the 2014 mock draft.  Free agency starts soon and the rumors are already swirling.  It’s that time of the year and this is when fans really get into GM mode and want to make Madden rosters for their teams.

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1

1. Houston Texans - Blake Bortles QB/UCF

With the NFL Combine and Pro Day out of the way for Bortles, I still think he did enough to warrant this pick by the Texans.  He’s actually #3 on my QB board, but he just seems to have that “swag” factor!  I hate the word “swag” btw!  I think it’s between Bortles and Clowney for this pick.  No one else is in the mix for me, well besides Watkins.

2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins) - Greg Robinson OT/Auburn

As appealing as Watkins may be to the Rams, protecting Bradford is too much of a bigger need.  By the luck of a failed physical Saffold returned, but they need a lot more work.  With the recent law issues facing Lewan, there may not be a top prospect available with their 2nd pick.  Robinson is the best prospect at this position.

Ok, it’s official!  I am sick and tired of the national media bashing the Philadelphia 76ers.  They suck, this we all know.  The fact that media outlets are portraying them as the worst scum known to mankind and acting as if they are the first team to purposely “lose” is foolish.

Tanking.  It’s the term that is most used to describe the 76ers.  It is reasonable to assume that every team with a lack of talent of purposely trying to lose to have their shots at Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, some even Joel Embiid.  Why are people attacking the Sixers….when they aren’t even the worst team in the league?

As we stand today, the Sixers have a record of 15-52, while the league worst Milwaukee Bucks are 13-55.  Yet, no one is running around talking about how horrible the Bucks are “tanking” to get a top pick.  And I’m sure you won’t hear it.  Granted, the Sixers have lost a franchise record 21 games in a row and it’s easy to see they are out-manned on the court, but to act like coach Brett Brown isn’t giving his all or the players aren’t giving their all is plain and simply disrespectful.
