NFL Draft 2014- Top Picks and Also Some Interesting Thoughts

Jadeveon Clowney, DE, another great prospect gets drafted first overall to the Houston Texans. He is a big guy standing at 6’5″ and weighing in at 266 pounds, but he is able to run quickly and will make a good addition to this teams defensive line. This is great for them because they will have an awesome defensive line this year and can hopefully do as well if not better than they did in 2012. 

Johnny Manziel, quarterback at Texas A&M, the highest prospect for the 2014 draft goes to the Cleveland Browns, will this help them win more games? What’s shocking is that he was the 22nd pick after so much speculation over him all year. I think they are still lacking a lot for their team. Regardless of getting a brand new shiny quarterback, you have to have a team that can back him up and catch the ball. We can hope for the Browns that this quarterback is worth it. Also, we can hope that Manziel will put in the work to prove himself, unlike great college quarterbacks before him like Matt Leinart. Where is he anyway? Poor guy can’t stay at one team and after bouncing around year to year from Cardinals to Texans, Raiders to Bills he is now a free agent, in case anybody wants him!

Michael Sam, DE, goes to the Rams and the whole world goes crazy. Honestly who cares about what he does in his personal time. He’s a decent player who tries hard and plays hard during each game. Although the Rams may be worried because Oprah just secured him a documentary of his life outside the Rams. They have agreed to film everywhere except the Rams facility, which may keep his head out of the game. 

Ha’Sean Clinton Dix goes to the Packers in the 20th pick overall. He is a good free safety, and he is fast. I think this is a good pick for the Packers, this will help Clay Matthews and Kuhn get some help on the defensive line. The Packers though obviously need a stronger offensive line to protect Aaron Rodger’s from getting sacked eight times in one half and I hope that they found what they are looking for in the rest of the draft. 

Plenty of interesting picks this year but these few are the most talked about, and favorites of the draft. I can’t wait until pre-season to see how everyone performs. If you have anything you’d like to add, or anyone you want to chat with me about then comment below! I would love to hear from you!
