Top Values & Biggest Risks In The 2014 NFL Draft Print E-mail

PFDN has revealed its top values and biggest risks list for the upcoming NFL draft.  You only have to look at the champion Seattle Seahawks to see the fantastic results that follow when a team drafts well.  Richard Sherman (5th round, 2011 NFL Draft), Kam Chancellor (5th round, 2010 NFL Draft), Russell Wilson (3rd round, 2012 NFL Draft) and Malcolm Smith (7th round, 2011) were all acquired with mid-to-late round picks.  That is exceptional drafting and it is no wonder that John Schneider and Pete Carroll have built a powerhouse of a team. The 1st round of the draft gets most of the publicity, but the 2nd and 3rd day of the draft are critical.

 

This year’s draft is very deep and has a good group of quarterbacks.  There is no slam-dunk franchise quarterback as an Andrew Luck or a Troy Aikman does not come along very often.  PFDN did not include Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles among the biggest risks.  This is because they are all fine prospects with of course, some areas to work on, but they can all develop into good starters.  Jimmy Garoppolo and Derek Carr were evaluated to more likely disappoint than the big 3 quarterbacks. Scouting reports on the key prospects will be coming.
