2014 NFL Mock Drafts 2.0
By Edward Aschoff
Now that the NFL season is officially over and national signing day has come to an end, we're turning our attention more and more to May's NFL draft.
To help, ESPN draft gurus Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have unveiled there updated mock drafts. They both have a Mock Draft 2.0 and they both have their own strong opinions, of course.
The SEC is once again well represented by both, but Kiper and McShay differ on who should go No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans. Kiper has former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel going to the Texans, while McShay has former South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney going first. Kiper has Clowney going third to the Jacksonville Jaguars and McShay has Manziel dropping to fifth to the Oakland Raiders.
Score for the SEC, regardless.
As for the rest of the first round, Kiper has 12 former SEC standouts going within the first 32 picks. McShay has 10 going in the first round.
