We are only a couple of days away from the 2014 NFL draft, which means it's crunch time for predictions.

Of course, that's where NFL draft gurus Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay come in. They've been going back and forth with their projections for months, but with only days remaining until Thursday's first night of drafting, there's only so much more these guys can talk about it.

Recently, these two put their minds together to create a joint mock draft that runs for three rounds. They rotated picks and their calls are their own. They didn't draft based on what they think teams want.

Naturally, the SEC is well represented, with 25 players picked to go in the first three rounds.

McShay has Jadeveon Clowney going first to the Houston Texans, while Kiper has Johnny Manziel going fourth to the Cleveland Browns. Both combined to take six SEC players in the first 10 picks and had 10 SEC players taken in the first round.

A couple of third-round gems include Kiper having the Cincinnati Bengals taking AJ McCarron with the 88th pick and the Minnesota Vikings drafting Tre Mason with the 96th pick.
