  1. Overall1 QB Rank1 QB Rank1 Overall1 Player Teddy Bridgewater PositionQB Height6-2 Weight214 College Bridgewater's a mobile, intelligent, competitive player with outstanding field vision and the ability to make most NFL throws. Does he have a laser rocket arm? No, but he can throw on the run, and throw off-balance, and throw across his body accurately.
  2. Overall2 DE Rank1 DE Rank1 Overall2 Player Jadeveon Clowney PositionDE Height6-6 Weight266 College Though critics of Clowney continue to question his work ethic, motor and decreased statistical production last season, the ex-Gamecock is hard to ignore when he is on the field. No matter where he is drafted, he will enter the 2014 campaign as a heavy favorite to land Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
  3. Overall3 OL Rank1 OL Rank1 Overall3 Player Greg Robinson PositionOL Height6-5 Weight332 College Despite his hulking size (6-5), he still can be classified as an athlete, which is a bit of a rarity along the O-line. The combination of power and quickness will have NFL scouts viewing him as a franchise left tackle -- someone who can be dropped in as a starter at training camp and left there for a decade.
  4. Overall4 LB Rank1 LB Rank1 Overall4 Player Khalil Mack PositionLB Height6-3 Weight251 College No matter the opponent, Mack simply explodes off the tape. He seems to perfectly fit the NFL prototype of the hybrid player who can move from strong-side linebacker to rush end (think Von Miller), and there's little doubt that the 6-foot-3, 251-pound Mack will be selected among the first few picks in the 2014 draft.
  5. Overall5 OL Rank2 OL Rank2 Overall5 Player Jake Matthews PositionOL Height6-5 Weight308 College The son of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews and cousin of Green Bay's Clay Matthews, Matthews ought to carve out his own niche in the NFL. He's a technician as a blocker, from his footwork to his hand position.
  6. Overall6 LB Rank2 LB Rank2 Overall6 Player Anthony Barr PositionLB Height6-5 Weight255 College At 6-5 and 255 pounds, Barr has the speed and balance to bend the edge on the blitz, the agility to drop into coverage and the strength to occasionally just rag-doll a blocker. The team that takes him and builds on these attributes could be rewarded with a special player for a long time to come.
  7. Overall7 LB Rank3 LB Rank3 Overall7 Player C.J. Mosley PositionLB Height6-2 Weight234 College Mosley's a 360-degree player who excelled in tackling, range plays and coverage for one of the nation's best and most complex defenses.
  8. Overall8 WR Rank1 WR Rank1 Overall8 Player Mike Evans PositionWR Height6-5 Weight231 College Evans still has extensive work to do on his own game, but being 6-foot-5 with incredible hands and exceptional leaping ability buys him some leeway. Few receivers already in the NFL can win in the air the way that Evans can.
  9. Overall9 WR Rank2 WR Rank2 Overall9 Player Sammy Watkins PositionWR Height6-1 Weight211 College The case for Watkins is a rather obvious one. At 6-1, 211 pounds and with 4.4 speed, Watkins has the size and speed to match what already is an NFL-ready game. May need to improve his route-running. That's about the only thing standing between him and stardom.
  10. Overall10 DT Rank1 DT Rank1 Overall10 Player Aaron Donald PositionDT Height6-1 Weight285 College Donald uses tremendous speed and power to upend blockers and disrupt plays over and over, and his effort is never questioned. This is a franchise-defining player in the right system.
  11. Overall11 CB Rank1 CB Rank1 Overall11 Player Darqueze Dennard PositionCB Height5-11 Weight199 College One of the centerpieces on a Michigan State team that came within a few plays of a national title berth, Dennard proved time and again to be an absolute force in the Spartans' secondary. Assuming he can avoid drawing repeated flags, Dennard has the technique to be an immediate starter.
  12. Overall12 DT Rank2 DT Rank2 Overall12 Player Louis Nix III PositionDT Height6-2 Weight331 College The 6-foot-2, 331-pound Nix is a more traditional nose tackle. With the right kind of coaching staff and a strong locker room, Nix could dominate in a B.J. Raji fashion.
  13. Overall13 QB Rank2 QB Rank2 Overall13 Player Johnny Manziel PositionQB Height6-0 Weight207 College There's far more to Manziel than on-field gimmicks and off-field questions. He's not a scheme-transcendent player, but Manziel can be everything he thinks he can be in the right situation.
  14. Overall14 CB Rank2 CB Rank2 Overall14 Player Justin Gilbert PositionCB Height6-0 Weight202 College Gilbert has the physical tools to bother receivers -- both in terms of strength and speed. No one would raise an eyebrow if Gilbert became the first corner drafted this year.
  15. Overall15 QB Rank3 QB Rank3 Overall15 Player Blake Bortles PositionQB Height6-5 Weight232 College Bortles is a big (6-foot-5, 232 pounds) guy who can sling the ball downfield and make plays with his mobility. He'll need to work on his reads and develop a better understanding of more complex defenses.
  16. Overall16 S Rank1 S Rank1 Overall16 Player Calvin Pryor PositionS Height5-11 Weight207 College Pryor is fast enough to make an enormous impact in any NFL defense as a center fielder. And he can play everywhere from the box to the deep third. The ability to do it all from that position is a very valuable thing in today's NFL.
  17. Overall17 WR Rank3 WR Rank3 Overall17 Player Marqise Lee PositionWR Height6-0 Weight192 College The athletic Lee, a savvy receiver, is now fully healthy after struggling en route to 57 receptions in 2013. He could be dropped into a starting lineup from Day 1 and challenge for Rookie of the Year honors.
  18. Overall18 OL Rank3 OL Rank3 Overall18 Player Taylor Lewan PositionOL Height6-7 Weight309 College Lewan likely would have been a top-10 pick following the 2012 season but decided instead to return to Michigan. Assuming teams can get past the off-field issues, Lewan will warrant an early selection.
  19. Overall19 DT Rank3 DT Rank3 Overall19 Player Ra'Shede Hageman PositionDT Height6-6 Weight310 College When he's on, Hageman is a monster disruptor from multiple gaps and angles, and he's just about impossible to stop consistently. When he struggles, Hageman can be penalty-prone and finds himself out of the picture.
  20. Overall20 DE Rank2 DE Rank2 Overall20 Player Dee Ford PositionDE Height6-2 Weight252 College While Clowney struggled to meet expectations last season, Ford flew past the bar set for him. He may not be far behind Clowney when it comes to production as a rookie.
  21. Overall21 OL Rank4 OL Rank4 Overall21 Player Zack Martin PositionOL Height6-4 Weight308 College A 52-game starter for the Irish, Martin repeatedly proved himself to be a dependable blocker outside. Is a move to guard in Martin's future? Many NFL minds think so, even though he never played there at Notre Dame.
  22. Overall22 WR Rank4 WR Rank4 Overall22 Player Odell Beckham Jr PositionWR Height5-11 Weight198 College There is a little less size here (5-11) and just average strength, which could hurt his ability to power through NFL cornerbacks. Everything else has the look of a plug-and-play NFL receiver.
  23. Overall23 S Rank2 S Rank2 Overall23 Player Ha Ha Clinton-Dix PositionS Height6-1 Weight208 College Clinton-Dix is an accurate violent tackler, able to clamp down in run support and blitz effectively. No play is totally safe as long as he's on the field.
  24. Overall24 WR Rank5 WR Rank5 Overall24 Player Kelvin Benjamin PositionWR Height6-5 Weight240 College The ex-Seminole is absolutely huge for a WR at 6-5, 240. He plays a tight end-style game to match that bulk, too, doing some of his best work in the red zone. The rub: Benjamin is far from a finished product.
  25. Overall25 TE Rank1 TE Rank1 Overall25 Player Eric Ebron PositionTE Height6-4 Weight250 College Ebron has staked his claim as a potential top-10 pick. Scouts will continue to question his blocking ability until he proves he's capable of holding his own there at the NFL level.
  26. Overall26 TE Rank2 TE Rank2 Overall26 Player Jace Amaro PositionTE Height6-5 Weight265 College Like Ebron, the blocking aspect of Amaro's game is worrisome. He may have to work out of the slot in the NFL, but he has the potential to be a menace there.
  27. Overall27 OL Rank5 OL Rank5 Overall27 Player Xavier Su'a-Filo PositionOL Height6-4 Weight307 College There's nobody else who possesses his combination of root strength, understanding of technique and agility to the second level. The most exciting guard prospect since Stanford's David DeCastro.
  28. Overall28 CB Rank3 CB Rank3 Overall28 Player Jason Verrett PositionCB Height5-9 Weight189 College Even though he may be undersized by NFL standards, Verrett thrived at TCU despite matching up with bigger receivers. Look no further than Verrett's stats for evidence of his ball-hawking abilities: 14 pass break-ups in 2013 plus nine career picks.
  29. Overall29 DE Rank3 DE Rank3 Overall29 Player Kony Ealy PositionDE Height6-4 Weight273 College His size/speed combo could open the door for him to land with a team running a 3-4 defense, in addition to those projecting him at his familiar 4-3 end spot. Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews called Ealy the toughest matchup he faced in college.
  30. Overall30 OL Rank6 OL Rank6 Overall30 Player Cyrus Kouandjio PositionOL Height6-7 Weight322 College Few players in this class have seen their stock tumble quite like Kouandjio, once viewed as the possible top OT. When Kouandjio is on, few tackles can match his massive power. He just needs to be on more often.
  31. Overall31 OL Rank7 OL Rank7 Overall31 Player David Yankey PositionOL Height6-6 Weight315 College An excellent technician who would be an asset to any power zone team. He has the potential to be a franchise guard in the right system.
  32. Overall32 WR Rank6 WR Rank6 Overall32 Player Brandin Cooks PositionWR Height5-10 Weight189 College He will not blow through physical defenders nor will he win jump balls downfield. What he will do is make just about every other catch, then threaten to turn those plays into home runs.
  33. Overall33 DT Rank4 DT Rank4 Overall33 Player Timmy Jernigan PositionDT Height6-2 Weight299 College The production is there, and it's quite possible some team will take him in the first round as a 3-tech tackle.
  34. Overall34 LB Rank4 LB Rank4 Overall34 Player Ryan Shazier PositionLB Height6-1 Weight237 College Like Luke Kuechly, Lavonte David and Bobby Wagner, Shazier shows the potential to be a full-field athletic linebacker who can hit the hole in the run game, cover short and intermediate routes and chase opponents from sideline to sideline.
  35. Overall35 OL Rank8 OL Rank8 Overall35 Player Travis Swanson PositionOL Height6-5 Weight312 College Swanson's physical performance at the combine left something to be desired. His experience as a 50-game starter at Arkansas should ease most of the concerns he may have raised in Indianapolis back in February.
  36. Overall36 WR Rank7 WR Rank7 Overall36 Player Allen Robinson PositionWR Height6-2 Weight220 College After leading the Big Ten in receiving in back-to-back seasons, Robinson has a shot to sneak into Round 1 and shouldn't slip past Round 2. Penn State leaned on him heavily to help keep its offense moving.
  37. Overall37 OL Rank9 OL Rank9 Overall37 Player Morgan Moses PositionOL Height6-6 Weight314 College There is little debate that Morgan improved as his final season with the Cavaliers progressed. He does carry ideal size (6-6, 314) and argued at the combine that he can play any position along the line.
  38. Overall38 QB Rank4 QB Rank4 Overall38 Player Derek Carr PositionQB Height6-2 Weight214 College Carr has the ability to drive the ball downfield to all areas of the field, and he can reset and do it on the run. It wouldn't be a huge surprise if an NFL team saw more than enough to develop here and took him in the late first round as its quarterback of the future.
  39. Overall39 CB Rank4 CB Rank4 Overall39 Player Lamarcus Joyner PositionCB Height5-8 Weight184 College The team which drafts him then may envision Joyner in a Tyrann Mathieu-like hybrid role, playing safety on early downs and dropping into the slot against three-receiver looks. The versatility should be a boost for Joyner's draft stock come May.
  40. Overall40 DE Rank4 DE Rank4 Overall40 Player Scott Crichton PositionDE Height6-3 Weight273 College Crichton does not check off the same athleticism boxes that the three end ranked higher than him do, but he has the strength and experience to be a legitimate Day 2 selection. For a team willing to ease Crichton into the lineup, the payoff ought to be huge.
  41. Overall41 LB Rank5 LB Rank5 Overall41 Player Kyle Van Noy PositionLB Height6-3 Weight243 College Van Noy is another do-it-all guy capable of rushing the passer, tackling well and showing real athleticism in coverage. He doesn't really stand out in any one particular area, but he does a lot very well.
  42. Overall42 CB Rank5 CB Rank5 Overall42 Player Marcus Roberson PositionCB Height6-0 Weight191 College The raw traits may not be there in comparison to some others in this class, but Roberson very much knows how to play his position. When he's on, he can frustrate the heck out of an opposing receiver.
  43. Overall43 RB Rank1 RB Rank1 Overall43 Player Ka'Deem Carey PositionRB Height5-9 Weight207 College Carey is dealing with a lack of next-level speed on the field, but his productivity and overall skillset should see him go fairly early in the second day of the draft.
  44. Overall44 DT Rank5 DT Rank5 Overall44 Player Dominique Easley PositionDT Height6-2 Weight288 College It's a shame Easley has suffered major injuries to both knees. If he can come back from his latest setback, Easley would be an enormous asset to any NFL team.
  45. Overall45 OL Rank10 OL Rank10 Overall45 Player Gabe Jackson PositionOL Height6-3 Weight336 College Jackson is the best of the pure maulers in this class. An NFL team with an emphasis on man-blocking and good coaching could turn him into a superior inline blocker.
  46. Overall46 DT Rank6 DT Rank6 Overall46 Player Stephon Tuitt PositionDT Height6-5 Weight304 College This is a player with some caveats he'll have to overcome. The 6-foot-5, 304-pound Tuitt has a lot of raw ability, but it needs to be channeled correctly.
  47. Overall47 DE Rank5 DE Rank5 Overall47 Player Trent Murphy PositionDE Height6-5 Weight250 College Murphy repeatedly proved to be one of those coveted nose-for-the-football type of players at Stanford, leading the country in sacks with 15 last season.
  48. Overall48 WR Rank8 WR Rank8 Overall48 Player Jordan Matthews PositionWR Height6-3 Weight212 College Matthews caught 94 passes in 2012 and 112 last season, overcoming average QB play. He probably will be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in the pros.
  49. Overall49 LB Rank6 LB Rank6 Overall49 Player Telvin Smith PositionLB Height6-3 Weight218 College Few linebacker prospects over the last few seasons bring it with Smith's velocity, and his 2013 numbers (90 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and three interceptions returned for 147 yards and two touchdowns) speak to his versatility.
  50. Overall50 CB Rank6 CB Rank6 Overall50 Player Kyle Fuller PositionCB Height6-0 Weight190 College Once a rather clear Day 2 candidate, Fuller's work at the combine (4.49 40, 4.19 short shuttle, 128-inch broad jump) put to rest lingering concerns over his health. Now that he has made his way back on the field, Fuller has climbed into the Round 1 mix.
  51. Overall51 CB Rank7 CB Rank7 Overall51 Player Bradley Roby PositionCB Height5-11 Weight194 College NFL teams are leery of players they feel they may have to motivate. Roby falls under that umbrella following a tough 2013, one that saw him regress from the dominant form he showed in 2012.
  52. Overall52 TE Rank3 TE Rank3 Overall52 Player Austin Seferian-Jenkins PositionTE Height6-5 Weight262 College Seferian-Jenkins is not a perfect specimen as a blocker, but he's further along in that regard than either Ebron or Amaro. The Washington product has the look of a long-time NFLer -- if he can stay healthy and motivated.
  53. Overall53 RB Rank2 RB Rank2 Overall53 Player Carlos Hyde PositionRB Height6-0 Weight230 College Hyde may be the only back in this draft class combining the kind of power and speed that would make him a franchise back at the NFL level. What makes him special is that he also has enough short-area speed and "wiggle" to elude tacklers.
  54. Overall54 RB Rank3 RB Rank3 Overall54 Player Tre Mason PositionRB Height5-8 Weight207 College Mason stands under 5-9, but at 207 pounds and with 4.5 speed, he's got a good palette of skills for the running back position.
  55. Overall55 DE Rank6 DE Rank6 Overall55 Player Jackson Jeffcoat PositionDE Height6-3 Weight247 College The 6-3 Jeffcoat may have no choice but to transition to a 3-4 OLB spot in the NFL. Eventually, he should be able to pull off that shift, even if it takes him a little while to round out his game and pack on some pounds.
  56. Overall56 DT Rank7 DT Rank7 Overall56 Player Will Sutton PositionDT Height6-0 Weight303 College Sutton's ability to deal with double teams is something that really stands out on tape. He'll have to answer questions about his weight issues at the Senior Bowl and the fact that his sack totals dropped from 13 in 2012 to just four last season.
  57. Overall57 WR Rank9 WR Rank9 Overall57 Player Jarvis Landry PositionWR Height5-11 Weight205 College Landry may slide in a very deep receiver class. In Round 2, he may prove to be a bargain. As a pick in Round 3 or later, Landry might turn into the steal of the draft.
  58. Overall58 QB Rank5 QB Rank5 Overall58 Player A.J. McCarron PositionQB Height6-3 Weight220 College The tape shows a reasonably mobile, reasonably strong-armed, reasonably talented quarterback who usually had gobs of time in the pocket due to outstanding offensive lines. Most likely, he's a career backup and possible spot starter at the NFL level.
  59. Overall59 CB Rank8 CB Rank8 Overall59 Player Bashaud Breeland PositionCB Height5-11 Weight197 College Breeland may have benefited from another year at Clemson, but he nonetheless figures to be gone by sometime on Day 2. He projects, at least early in his career, as a very solid No. 2 or No. 3 cornerback, capable of matching up with secondary receivers.
  60. Overall60 RB Rank4 RB Rank4 Overall60 Player Bishop Sankey PositionRB Height5-9 Weight209 College Sankey isn't a pure power back, though he understands how to bounce off contact and pick up extra yards, and his receiving ability is something that many pro teams would find valuable. In a new NFL that values the versatile back, Sankey's ahead of the game.
  61. Overall61 QB Rank6 QB Rank6 Overall61 Player Jimmy Garoppolo PositionQB Height6-2 Weight226 College Garoppolo gets jittery and balky in the pocket under pressure. If he can get that sorted out, Garoppolo has the skillset to become a medium-grade NFL asset.
  62. Overall62 OL Rank11 OL Rank11 Overall62 Player Weston Richburg PositionOL Height6-3 Weight298 College Athleticism's not a concern here -- Richburg topped all centers at the combine with a 5.1 40 time, and he played both linebacker and QB in high school.
  63. Overall63 WR Rank10 WR Rank10 Overall63 Player Jared Abbrederis PositionWR Height6-1 Weight195 College Is he a Pro Bowler? Maybe not. But it is not out of line to expect Abbrederis to go for 60-plus catches as a rookie.
  64. Overall64 S Rank3 S Rank3 Overall64 Player Jimmie Ward PositionS Height5-11 Weight193 College He shows tremendous range in space, can turn and transition with receivers consistently, and shows a lot of awareness on the field. The only thing that might keep him out of the first round is his size.
  65. Overall65 LB Rank7 LB Rank7 Overall65 Player Chris Borland PositionLB Height5-11 Weight248 College He's slow to the play, not out of a lack of trying, but sheer physical limitations. But he has an innate sense of where the play is going. Could he be the next Lofa Tatupu or Zach Thomas?
  66. Overall66 WR Rank11 WR Rank11 Overall66 Player Martavis Bryant PositionWR Height6-4 Weight211 College There aren't a ton of 6-4 receivers with the speed to beat a corner at the line and then blow past a helping safety. That's where Bryant does his best work right now -- as a straight-line deep threat.
  67. Overall67 DE Rank7 DE Rank7 Overall67 Player Demarcus Lawrence PositionDE Height6-3 Weight251 College An under-the-radar guy that NFL fans ought to get to know now -- Lawrence has a legitimate shot to leapfrog several players here and land in Round 1 come May.
  68. Overall68 OL Rank12 OL Rank12 Overall68 Player Joel Bitonio PositionOL Height6-4 Weight302 College Despite being a top athlete among linemen this year (4.97 40, 32-inch vertical, 4.44 three-cone), Bitonio may not have the strength required to lock down an edge in the NFL.
  69. Overall69 CB Rank9 CB Rank9 Overall69 Player Antone Exum PositionCB Height6-0 Weight213 College Exum struggled with injuries last year. The 6-0, 213-pounder turned in a 4.59 40 at the combine, offering up evidence in his workout there that he will be ready to roll for training camp.
  70. Overall70 WR Rank12 WR Rank12 Overall70 Player Davante Adams PositionWR Height6-1 Weight212 College Adams can catch and run, but he also excels in one-on-one matchups, as he did multiple times during Fresno State's bowl game.
  71. Overall71 QB Rank7 QB Rank7 Overall71 Player Zach Mettenberger PositionQB Height6-5 Weight224 College He has a classic delivery, good size for the position and can zing the ball into tight windows. The main issue in his way is that Mettenberger doesn't show a lot of mobility.
  72. Overall72 S Rank4 S Rank4 Overall72 Player Deone Bucannon PositionS Height6-1 Weight211 College Bucannon is an old-school strong safety in size and on tape -- he's at his best when he's near the line of scrimmage, looking to take someone's head off in run support or defending short passes.
  73. Overall73 LB Rank8 LB Rank8 Overall73 Player Jeremiah Attaochu PositionLB Height6-3 Weight252 College If draft positioning was based on pure potential, Attaochu would be a certain first-round prospect. The ACC's leader in sacks since 2005 with 32, Attaochu could be a monster in a defense that allows him to use different gaps and line stunts as he gets the finer points together.
  74. Overall74 TE Rank4 TE Rank4 Overall74 Player Troy Niklas PositionTE Height6-6 Weight270 College Any team drafting Niklas would be doing so with one eye on the future, since he has the size (6-6, 270) and potential, but remains a work in progress.
  75. Overall75 WR Rank13 WR Rank13 Overall75 Player Cody Latimer PositionWR Height6-2 Weight215 College A strong, physical receiver with soft hands, Latimer lacks breakaway speed. The former hoops star has the leaping ability to be a big threat in the red zone.
  76. Overall76 DE Rank8 DE Rank8 Overall76 Player Kareem Martin PositionDE Height6-6 Weight272 College A lot to like here for NFL teams, starting with Martin's 6-6 frame. While GMs may not seek out height at the DE spot like they tend to at the quarterback position, Martin figures to get a bump on draft boards as result of his size.
  77. Overall77 CB Rank10 CB Rank10 Overall77 Player Pierre Desir PositionCB Height6-1 Weight198 College Desir's size (6-1, 198 pounds) alone will earn him a shot in the NFL, though he has earned that opportunity with his play. There is a lot to like here, particularly if Desir can become more of a physically imposing defensive back.
  78. Overall78 WR Rank14 WR Rank14 Overall78 Player Bruce Ellington PositionWR Height5-9 Weight197 College Like a young Steve Smith, Ellington comes off the line with a quick release, can excel from the slot or outside and is unafraid of catching passes in traffic. Could be a third-day bargain.
  79. Overall79 TE Rank5 TE Rank5 Overall79 Player C.J. Fiedorowicz PositionTE Height6-5 Weight265 College Another big Iowa body (6-5, 265), Fiedorowicz was underused by the passing-challenged Hawkeyes. He definitely is capable of a 50-plus-catch season in the NFL.
  80. Overall80 WR Rank15 WR Rank15 Overall80 Player Donte Moncrief PositionWR Height6-2 Weight221 College In the right offense, and without the demands of being a No. 1 receiver, Moncrief could help contribute with his route development and tough blocking.
  81. Overall81 CB Rank11 CB Rank11 Overall81 Player Phillip Gaines PositionCB Height6-0 Weight193 College Gaines was a Conference USA standout with pure burner speed and a lot of interesting traits. He's got a long history of shutting down his better opponents. An unheralded name who shouldn't be.
  82. Overall82 OL Rank13 OL Rank13 Overall82 Player Billy Turner PositionOL Height6-5 Weight315 College Flew somewhat under the radar because of the minimal exposure he received playing in North Dakota. At 6-5, 315 with the ability to power through defenders, he could intrigue a team on Day 2 of the draft.
  83. Overall83 DT Rank8 DT Rank8 Overall83 Player Justin Ellis PositionDT Height6-1 Weight334 College Projects best as a nose tackle at this point, but if Ellis dropped about 15-20 pounds from his 6-foot-1, 334-pound frame and mastered a few fundamentals, I think he could be a multi-gap force.
  84. Overall84 OL Rank14 OL Rank14 Overall84 Player Jack Mewhort PositionOL Height6-6 Weight309 College Mewhort, the Buckeyes' left tackle, may fit more snugly in the NFL as a right tackle and could be a swing guard/center for a team hoping to bulk up its depth chart. What Mewhort will give a team is a very steady lineman with a running motor.
  85. Overall85 DT Rank9 DT Rank9 Overall85 Player DaQuan Jones PositionDT Height6-4 Weight322 College There's a lot to like about his NFL potential. Right now, he has a great mixture of strength at the point of attack and ability to penetrate through gaps.
  86. Overall86 OL Rank15 OL Rank15 Overall86 Player Ja'Wuan James PositionOL Height6-6 Weight311 College James is a four-year starter in the SEC and more than held his own in that role. Should he land on a team that likes to air it out, James could be a Week 1 starter -- he's a beast in pass protection.
  87. Overall87 RB Rank5 RB Rank5 Overall87 Player Jeremy Hill PositionRB Height6-1 Weight233 College Hill certainly looks the part of an NFL running back. But he might be a bit of a one-trick pony when more is demanded of him -- he's a good straight-line power back, but could struggle to get free when he's the focus of NFL defenses.
  88. Overall88 QB Rank8 QB Rank8 Overall88 Player Tom Savage PositionQB Height6-4 Weight228 College Savage doesn't throw the same type of pass consistently from game to game, he's erratic on the run and he's prone to unravel under pressure. Anyone looking for a Derek Anderson-style developmental prospect could do a lot worse.
  89. Overall89 LB Rank9 LB Rank9 Overall89 Player Jordan Zumwalt PositionLB Height6-4 Weight235 College Zumwalt may already be close to maxed out, potential-wise. Even if that is the case, some team will land a charged-up special teams player who at least should be able to crack a depth chart at linebacker.
  90. Overall90 RB Rank6 RB Rank6 Overall90 Player Dri Archer PositionRB Height5-8 Weight173 College If not for an injury-plagued 2013 season, the blazingly fast Archer would have been on more radars already. When he's healthy, he can be extremely dangerous for an offense.
  91. Overall91 CB Rank12 CB Rank12 Overall91 Player Keith McGill PositionCB Height6-3 Weight211 College McGill is an interesting prospect because of his size and his ability to play press coverage. There are injury and technique issues to consider, but he's logged some interesting tape when healthy.
  92. Overall92 QB Rank9 QB Rank9 Overall92 Player Aaron Murray PositionQB Height6-1 Weight207 College Murray's a high-quality individual by all accounts, and he presents a nice combination of arm strength and mobility. Size and injury concerns, not to mention a pretty obvious ceiling, may limit Murray as a prospect.
  93. Overall93 LB Rank10 LB Rank10 Overall93 Player Christian Jones PositionLB Height6-3 Weight240 College Overlooking Jones, a versatile 6-3 linebacker, might be a huge mistake. He can cover, he can get to the football and he played several different spots on Florida State's defense throughout his career.
  94. Overall94 OL Rank16 OL Rank16 Overall94 Player Dakota Dozier PositionOL Height6-4 Weight313 College Dozier has rare athleticism and impressive root strength. Yes, he's got the usual small-school dings, but he's certainly worth a third-round risk pick.
  95. Overall95 RB Rank7 RB Rank7 Overall95 Player Charles Sims PositionRB Height6-0 Weight214 College Sims likes to swing wide and turn the corners, and he averaged 50.8 catches over his four college seasons. Combine the versatility with that solid body type and you've got one of the draft's biggest sleepers.
  96. Overall96 CB Rank13 CB Rank13 Overall96 Player Louchiez Purifoy PositionCB Height5-11 Weight190 College The 5-11 Purifoy has shown the ability to stuff receivers one-on-one. Ran a 4.61 40 at Indy, and may have quicker feet than he showed there, especially when it comes to turning his hips.
  97. Overall97 OL Rank17 OL Rank17 Overall97 Player Cameron Fleming PositionOL Height6-5 Weight323 College A three-year starter at Stanford, Fleming has the size and smarts NFL teams are looking for. His lack of quickness and unrefined technique may portend a position change at the next level.
  98. Overall98 RB Rank8 RB Rank8 Overall98 Player Terrance West PositionRB Height5-9 Weight225 College Strength of opponent questions will undoubtedly dog West, but when you isolate his skillset, it becomes clear that the 5-9, 225-pound back can get to the edge in a big hurry, and has an impressive second burst for his size. West doesn't have much of a learning curve.
  99. Overall99 OL Rank18 OL Rank18 Overall99 Player Antonio Richardson PositionOL Height6-6 Weight336 College Opinions vary rather wildly on Richardson, who needed knee surgery after the 2012 season and recently told The Tennessean that he played in '13 at "about 65 percent." Standing 6-6 and 336 pounds, Richardson does offer more than enough at tackle to warrant a pick somewhere in the middle rounds.
  100. Overall100 CB Rank14 CB Rank14 Overall100 Player Rashaad Reynolds PositionCB Height5-10 Weight189 College His 5-10 frame will be a liability when covering bigger receivers -- but he can cover in the slot and outside, provides a pop in run support and is familiar with different coverage schemes.
