The 2014 NFL draft is behind us all, NFL Draft Insiders will look back and do what every hardcore football guru does, analyze the winners of and the losers of the draft inside the war room.

Let’s look back at what the AFC team needs were heading into the draft and if they succeeded.

 

AFC East

Buffalo Bills

 

Needs: WR, OL, S, TE

 

The Bills made the first big move in the draft, trading up with the Browns and drafting receiver, Sammy Watkins. Then on day two they traded away their former number one, Stevie Johnson for a fourth round draft pick in 2015, which could potentially turn into a third. In round two the Bills added OT Cyrus Kouandjio. In a recent interview Bill GM, said: “we like his length.” Preston Brown, the inside linebacker can come in right away and make a difference in the run game. OG, Cyril Richardson, another big, lengthy guy, needs some work pass blocking, but great value for the fifth round. Seantrell Henderson, I personally really like this pick. He has all the measurable to be a first rounder, 6’7”, and 331 pounds. But, his off the field issues are well documented and he literally walked off the field on his pro day saying “I quit.” If he can somehow work through all his issues, he will be the bills starting right tackle of the future.

 

The Bills boldness to move up was great, but giving up a first rounder was too much, considering how deep this class of receivers was. The Bills also didn’t address their need a safety, so for those reasons, the Bills are the next keep you guessing.

 

(1) 4 WR Sammy Watkins Clemson

(2) 44 T Cyrus Kouandjio Alabama

(3) 73 LB Preston Brown Louisville

(4) 109 CB Ross Cockrell Duke

(5) 153 G Cyril Richardson Baylor

(7) 221 OLB Randell Johnson Florida Atlantic

(7) 237 T Seantrel Henderson Miami (FL)

New York Jets

 

Needs: WR, TE, CB, S

 

The Jets first pick, safety Calvin Pryor, while it fits a need, surprised me and most people. In all of my mocks I had them taking either a tight end or wide receiver. Pryor was also the third best safety on my board and the Jets made him the first safety taken. Tight end, Jace Amaro will help, but I would have taken a receiver at this point and maybe even traded up to get one. Dexter McDougle in the third round was a reach, Pierre Desir would have been a better fit for the Jets at this point in the draft. The Jets did address their need at wide out with back to back picks in the fourth. Jalen Saunders and Shaquelle Evans. Saunders at 5’8” 165, is pint sized and will likely be a return specialist and possibly play in the slot. Shaquelle Evans is the physical presence the Jets need. Underrated speed and great hands. My favorite pick from the Jets. Dakota Dozer has the size at 6’3”, 313 pounds as well as the athleticism and raw ability to start. Brandon Dixon, an athletic division II cornerback, who needs to work on his tackling. Quarterback, Tajh Boyd has a strong arm and was a winner in college. Boyd has a ton of upside and was a great pick in the sixth round.

 

The Jets did a good job drafting players that fit their scheme even if they had to reach for a player or two. Despite some head-scratching moments, I would say they are draft winners.

 

(1) 18 S Calvin Pryor Louisville

(2) 49 TE Jace Amaro Texas Tech

(3) 80 CB Dexter McDougle Maryland

(4) 104 WR Jalen Saunders Oklahoma

(4) 115 WR Shaq Evans UCLA

(4) 137 G Dakota Dozier Furman

(5) 154 LB Jeremiah George Iowa State

(6) 195 CB Brandon Dixon NW Missouri State

(6) 209 WR Quincy Enunwa Nebraska

(6) 210 DE I.K. Enemkpali Louisiana Tech

(6) 213 QB Tajh Boyd Clemson

(7) 233 OLB Trevor Reilly Utah

 

Miami Dolphins

 

Needs: OL, DE, DB

 

The Dolphins biggest need is clearly offensive line, after losing two starters to off the field issues. The Dolphins wisely took OT, Ja’Wuan James. James played at a high level is whole career and can play at either right or left, wherever the Dolphins need him. Jarvus Landry is a great position receiver, who I believe will become the Dolphins number one target by the end of the 2014 Regular season. OT, Billy Turner is tough, but isn’t tops in the athletic department. Walt Aikens would have gone higher in this year’s draft, but he had some character issues in college. Nevertheless, great value pick in the fourth round. Jordan Tripp has the size, length and athleticism to play at multiple positions in the Dolphins front seven. He’s a great fit. Matt Hazel was someone I was watching late, natural pass catcher with good height. Played at a smaller school where he did not get a lot of recognition, another great pick for Miami.

 

Miami drafted players to support Ryan Tannenhill and filled their defense needs at the same time. The Dolphins are winners.

 

(1) 19 T Ja'Wuan James Tennessee

(2) 63 WR Jarvis Landry LSU

(3) 67 T Billy Turner ND State

(4) 125 CB Walt Aikens Liberty

(5) 155 TE Arthur Lynch Georgia

(5) 171 OLB Jordan Tripp Montana

(6) 190 WR Matt Hazel Coastal Carolina

(7) 234 DE Terrence Fede Marist

 

New England Patriots

 

Needs: DT, TE, S, RB

 

The Patriots did what they always do and traded down..oh no wait, they didn’t. The Patriots took defensive end, Dominique Easley. Apparently the player that Seattle wanted. Easley would have been a top 15 pick had it not been for two knee injuries. A great pick by the Patriots. Their second-round pick while a little bit of a head-scratcher, was my favorite pick of the draft up to that point. Jimmy Garoppolo grew up a Tom Brady fan and now he gets to study under him. Hopefully it will work out for the Patriots and him in the long run. Bryan Stork has the versatility to play any of the three interior line positions. Running back James White, can’t be an every down back, but they don’t need him to be with the depth already there. The 6’4” 323 pound Fleming gives the Patriots the large pass blocking presence up the middle. Jemea Thomas and Zack Moore, two more players that can play at multiple positions, something Belichick loves. Jeremy Gallon lacks elite straight line speed, but has sure hands and will thrive under Brady.

 

I can’t remember a year in which the Patriots didn’t draft well. They always have a plan. Belichick has done it better than anyone over the past decade plus. The Patriots are winners.

 

(1) 29 DL Dominique Easley Florida

(2) 62 QB Jimmy Garoppolo Eastern Illinois

(4) 105 C Bryan Stork Florida State

(4) 130 RB James White Wisconsin

(4) 140 OL Cameron Fleming Stanford

(6) 179 G Jon Halapio Florida

(6) 198 DE Zach Moore Concordia (MN)

(7) 206 CB Jemea Thomas Georgia Tech

(7) 244 WR Jeremy Gallon Michigan

 

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens

 

Needs: OT, S, CB, WR

 

The Ravens first pick, C.J. Mosley, didn’t really fit a need. But they need help next to Daryl Smith and people are already calling him the next Ray Lewis. Definitely too soon for those kind of comparisons, but Mosley does fit the mold. Timmy Jernigan, another guy people had mocked in first rounds for months leading up to the drafts and dropped after he failed a drug test at the combine. Terrance Brooks was the fifth best safety, after Calvin Pryor. Brooks led the nation in interceptions in 2013 and should play well alongside Matt Elam. Crocket Gilmore has a big catching radius and can block well. Gilmore will be a matchup nightmare for defenders at 6’6”. Had his 40 time been faster Gilmore would have been a sure second rounder. Brent Urban, the 6’7” defensive end was great value, stick him outside to play the 5-technique or inside at defensive tackle cause of his size. Lorenzo Taliaferro is built like a linebacker, at 6’0”, 230 pounds, Taliaferro will be great in short yardage situations for the Ravens. Baltimore could also stick him in there on third and long, with his pass blocking and catching ability. The Ravens moved back in the draft and picked up the receiver they needed, Michael Campanaro. Campanaro compares to Danny Amendola, injury concerns and all.

 

Baltimore stuck to their needs and took the best available players when they could. The Ravens are winners.

 

(1) 17 ILB C.J. Mosley Alabama

(2) 48 DT Timmy Jernigan Florida State

(3) 79 S Terrence Brooks Florida State

(3) 99 TE Crockett Gillmore Colorado State

(4) 134 DE Brent Urban Virginia

(4) 138 RB Lorenzo Taliaferro Coastal Carolina

(5) 175 C John Urschel Penn State

(6) 194 QB Keith Wenning Ball State

(7) 218 WR Mike Campanaro Wake Forest

 

Cincinnati Bengals

 

Needs: CB, OL, DE, RB

 

The Bengals have only been a couple pieces away from compete ting and finally winning a playoff game. Three years in a row, they’ve been one and done. Their biggest hole was at corner and did they get a good one. Darqueze Dennard was the top corner on a lot of analyst’s boards. Out of all the players who fell in the first, his drop was a big shock. In the second, the Bengals got a very talented back, with some off the field question marks in Jeremy Hill. My third rated back in this year’s draft. William Clarke was a much needed addition after losing Michael Johnson. Russell Bodine can play at any position on the offensive line and start. Although he’s a much better run blocker than he is a pass blocker. A.J. McCarron is an admitted game manager and gets downgraded because of the team he had around him. James Wright is the big bodied receiver, but he only caught 18 passes in 2013. Lavelle Westbrook has above average strength for his size, but lack explosiveness and instincts to start right away.

 

The Bengals got the best cornerback in the draft and late. In addition they addressed their needs and didn’t reach for anyone. The Bengals are winners.

 

 

(1) 24 CB Darqueze Dennard Michigan State

(2) 55 RB Jeremy Hill LSU

(3) 88 DE William Clarke West Virginia

(4) 111 C Russell Bodine UNC

(5) 164 QB AJ McCarron Alabama

(6) 212 OLB Marquis Flowers Arizona

(7) 239 WR James Wright LSU

(7) 252 DB Lavelle Westbrooks Georgia Southern

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

 

Needs: CB, WR, DT, OL

 

Coming off a year where they finished 8-8, only barely missing the playoffs. The Steelers only had a few major holes to fill. Cornerback being the biggest, one they did not really address, which had me scratching my head a little. Even so, the Steelers got some outstanding players. First off, inside linebacker Ryan Shazier. Shazier actually played at both inside and outside linebacker in college and will fit right in to Dick LeBeau’s system. Worth noting that Shazier is also one of the faster linebacker in this year’s draft, having ran a 4.59 40 at the combine. Stephon Tuitt, another defensive lineman who didn’t have his greatest year in 2013. Tuitt didn’t run or jump at the combine, after doctors found a small fracture in his foot. Tuitt will likely play the 5-technique and eventually replace Brett Kiesel.

 

It’s worth mentioning, Tuitt finished his career at Notre Dame with 21.5 sacks. Dri Archer at one point was projected to go in the seventh round, that was until he ran at combine, where he ran a 4.26 40 yard time, nearly breaking Chris Johnson’s record of 4.25. Archer will not have to start, since the Steelers already have Le’Veon Bell. He will likely come in on passing downs and play the Darren Sproles role. Matavius Bryant has the intangibles, but has suffered from groin injuries and what’s known as the dropsies (he drops the ball too much). Otherwise Bryant would likely been a first rounder. If the Steelers can get him to cure his “dropsies”, Bryant will be a star. Shaq Richardson is a long, lean, press man corner, but has some consistency issues, which is why he went in the fifth round.

 

On paper, Pittsburgh had one of the better 2014 drafts. Adding depth on both sides of the ball. The only position of need they didn’t address, was cornerback. But, they are still winners.

 

(1) 15 OLB Ryan Shazier Ohio State

(2) 46 DE Stephon Tuitt Notre Dame

(3) 97 RB Dri Archer Kent State

(4) 118 WR Martavis Bryant Clemson

(5) 157 DB Shaq Richardson Arizona

(5) 173 T Wesley Johnson Vanderbilt

(6) 192 ILB Jordan Zumwalt UCLA

(6) 215 DE Daniel McCullers Tennessee

(7) 230 TE Rob Blanchflower UMass

 

Cleveland Browns

 

Needs: QB, WR, CB, OL

 

The Browns made waves when they traded their first pick with Bills and moved down to the nine spot and then trading back up the Vikings and taking cornerback Justin Gilbert. Gilbert was rated as the highest cornerback for most of the time leading up to the draft and about two weeks before the draft Darqueze Dennard jumped up ahead on most people’s boards. Mike Pettine apparently wanted OT Greg Robinson, but since he wasn’t there they smartly moved down and took the number two guy on their board. Cleveland reportedly tried to trade up again to number 11 with the Titans, but were unable to close a deal. The Browns did end up trading again when they swapped picks with the Eagles at 22 and took Johnny Manziel. Then they got an offensive tackle with first-round talent in Joel Bitonio. Terreance West is a good change of pace back to play alongside Ben Tate.  And Pierre Desir should translate well to the NFL, despite the fact he played division II football in college.

 

The Browns were very active over the three day period and were involved in five trades. Their only head-scratcher moment came because they did not draft a receiver, despite the news regarding Josh Gordon. Overall it was a good draft and they get a winners mark.

 

(1) 8 CB Justin Gilbert Oklahoma State

(1) 22 QB Johnny Manziel Texas A&M

(2) 35 G Joel Bitonio Nevada

(3) 71 LB Chris Kirksey Iowa

(3) 94 RB Terrance West Towson

(4) 127 CB Pierre Desir Lindenwood

 

AFC South

Houston Texans

 

Needs: QB, OL, DL, LB

 

The Texans addresses every one of their needs. They stuck to their board, never wavering. Most people know the Texans would have like to have traded down from the first overall pick, but due to their asking price, were unable to so. No big loss though, seeing as how they drafted the best player on almost everyone’s board, Jadeveon Clowney. Then with their second pick, they got a guy with first round talent, Xavier Su’a-Filo, the best guard on almost everyone’s big board as well. Picking up tight end C.J. Fiedorwicz, the 6’5”, 265 pound guy who can catch and block, something that seems to be a dying art for tight ends nowadays. With their next pick, they helped out J.J. Watt and Clowney, getting DT Louis Nix III. How did it help out Clowney and Watt? Well, if you double team anyone of these guys, it will free up someone to get that one-on-one matchup and with the speed of Clowney and Watt, you’re getting a facemask full of turf or grass, whatever it may be. Andre Hall could be decent depth at cornerback, and Jay Porsch is a machine at fullback, Arian Foster has to love that pick, I bet he can just see the holes now.

The Texans were also able to address their quarterback need by capturing the Pittsburgh signal caller Tom Savage in the fourth round.

Overall I would say the Texans are Winners. Maybe, they can prove it on the field now after losing 14 games in a row last year.

 

 

(1) 1 DE Jadeveon Clowney

(2) 33 G Xavier Su'a-Filo

(3) 65 TE C.J. Fiedorowicz

(3) 83 DT Louis Nix III Notre

(4) 135 QB Tom Savage

(6) 177 DE Jeoffrey Pagan

(6) 181 RB Alfred Blue

(6) 211 FB Jay Prosch

(7) 216 CB Andre Hal

(7) 256 S Lonnie Ballentine

 

Indianapolis Colts

 

Needs: S, OL, WR, LB

 

The Colts traded away their first round pick last year in order to acquire Trent Richardson. Who everyone thought would come in right away and give Andrew Luck a running back that would make defenders at least think twice about the run. That never happened, Richardson vastly underperformed for someone who essentially cost two first rounds picks. Jack Mewhort, was a reach to me, when Morgan Moses and Marcus Martin were still available.  Donte Moncrief is my favorite pick by the Colts. He can stretch the field for Luck and take some pressure off of Wayne and Hakeem Nicks. Maybe even open up the running game for Richardson. Jonathan Newsome is a bit undersized and needs to get stronger. He does have the quickness to come in on passing downs and play situational football.

 

I would have liked to see them address their biggest need, safety. For that reason and the trade the Colts made last year for Richardson, which affected this year’s draft the Colts are losers.

 

(2) 59 T Jack Mewhort Ohio State

(3) 90 WR Donte Moncrief Mississippi

(5) 166 DE Jonathan Newsome Ball State

(6) 203 ILB Andrew Jackson Western Kentucky

(7) 232 G Ulrick John Georgia State

 

Tennessee Titans

 

Needs: CB, LB, QB, RB

 

When the Titans took offensive tackle, Taylor Lewan at 11, it definitely shocked me. Two of the top three cornerbacks were still available, Darqueze Dennard and Kyle Fuller. Plus, they went out and signed a right tackle in Michael Oher and they have a Pro Bowl left tackle in Michael Roos. Roos is an unrestricted free agent after 2014, but I feel like the titans could have waited till the second round. Bishop Sankey was taken to replace Chris Johnson, I personally had him as the fourth best running back and the Titans made him the first back to come off the board. Making it the latest a running back has been selected, since 1967. The previous high was 37th overall, when the Bengals drafted Giovani Bernard. Marqueston Huff is my favorite pick by the Titans, they can stick him at safety or corner and he’ll compete at either position. Their last pick, quarterback, Zack Mettenberger was amazing value in the sixth round and likely fell because of his drug test that was diluted at the combine. Nevertheless, Mettenberger will benefit from red shirting and learning under Ken Whisenhut.

 

Even though they used their first pick to draft value, instead of need. I really like what the Titans did with the rest of their draft, getting Sankey, Huff and Mettenberger. For those reason, the Titans are winners.

 

(1) 11 T Taylor Lewan Michigan

(2) 54 RB Bishop Sankey Washington

(4) 112 DT Daquan Jones Penn State

(4) 122 DB Marqueston Huff Wyoming

(5) 151 LB Avery Williamson Kentucky

(6) 178 QB Zach Mettenberger LSU

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Needs: QB, WR, DE, OL

 

The Jaguars shocked pretty much everyone when they passed on receiver Sammy Watkins and linebacker Khalil Mack, to take Blake Bortles. The Jaguars did need a quarterback and Bortles could be the long term answer. But, they went out their way to name Chad Henne as the starter and have said Bortles will “red-shirt” his first year. Why take a quarterback at three, if you’re going to red-shirt him? It just doesn’t make any sense. Personally, I would have waited till the second round and taken Garoppolo or maybe even Derek Carr. But to the Jags credit, their next three picks were weapons for Henne or Bortles and an offesnsive lineman to keep them upright. Marqise Lee was a steal at 39, his knee injury probable being the only thing that held him back. But look at what happened to Keenan Allen, last year he fell for the same reason and ended up being a big part of the chargers playoff push. Allen Robinson is a great pick as well, the 6’2” reliable pass catcher should be productive regardless of who is throwing the ball. Brandon Linder fills their need on the offensive line. Aaron Colvin tore his ACL during the senior bowl, otherwise he could have been a first rounder, more likely falling to the second though. Colvin will more than likely sit the year on IR or the PUP list. DE Chris Smith is a little undersized, but makes up for his lack of size in strength (28 bench press at the combine).

 

Despite their first pick being a head-scratcher of sorts, they stuck to their board and addressed all of their major needs. They’re winners.

 

(1) 3 QB Blake Bortles Central Florida

(2) 39 WR Marqise Lee USC

(2) 61 WR Allen Robinson Penn State

(3) 93 G Brandon Linder Miami (FL)

(4) 114 CB Aaron Colvin Oklahoma

(5) 144 LB Telvin Smith Florida State

(5) 159 DE Chris Smith Arkansas

(6) 205 C Luke Bowanko Virginia

(7) 222 RB Storm Johnson Central Florida

 

AFC West

Kansas City Chiefs

 

Needs: WR, DL, S, OL

 

The Chiefs needed to add depth to their front seven. When Tamba Hali and Justin Houston went down last year, they struggled on defense, mightily. So when the Chiefs took Dee Ford I don’t think it shocked anyone. The Chiefs did not have a second-round pick because of the trade in 2013 to acquire Alex Smith from the 49ers. Nevertheless, they used their next pick wisely, taking cornerback, Phillip Gaines. Gaines could come in and play in nickel and dime situations right away and maybe compete for a starting job down the road. De'Anthony Thomas was drafted to replace Dexter McCluster, someone who Alex Smith looked to a lot in 2013. Aaron Murray doesn’t have the size you want in a quarterback, but neither does Drew Brees or Russell Wilson and they have Super Bowl rings. Murray won’t start right away, which will be good for him, especially since he’s coming off an injury. With their last two picks the Chiefs took two guys with the raw ability to be starters on the offensive line, just not right away, they both need some polishing.

 

The safety position being one of their biggest needs and they did not take anyone to address it. Still, with only having six picks to work with, the Chiefs did well. They’re winners.

 

(1) 23 DE Dee Ford Auburn

(3) 87 CB Phillip Gaines Rice

(4) 124 RB De'Anthony Thomas Oregon

(5) 163 QB Aaron Murray Georgia

(6) 193 G Zach Fulton Tennessee

(6) 200 T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif McGill (Canada)

 

San Diego Chargers

 

Needs: CB, WR, LB, DL

 

The Chargers reportedly loved Jason Verrett and for months now. Leaving no one’s jaw to drop when they selected him 25th overall on Thursday. If Verrett were a little bit taller he would have gone in the top 15, maybe even in the top 10. But corners like Brent Grimes in Miami can play at around 5’10” and still be game changers. Jeremiah Attaouchu is my favorite linebacker behind Mosley and Mack. Great value in the second and gives them a pass rusher to get to Manning, Schuab and Alex Smith twice a year. Chris Watt is a great interior lineman and could start if need be. Marion Grice is a great back, with good vision and cutback ability. He also gives Philip Rivers an additional target to throw too. Tevin Reese struggles against man, but has the hands and speed to possibly play in the slot.

 

The Chargers barely made it to the playoffs last year and if they wanted to compete again, holes would have to be filled. And I think the Chargers filled them, at least mostly. The Bolts are winners.

 

(1) 25 CB Jason Verrett TCU

(2) 50 OLB Jeremiah Attaochu Georgia Tech

(3) 89 G Chris Watt Notre Dame

(5) 165 DT Ryan Carrethers Arkansas State

(6) 201 RB Marion Grice Arizona State

(7) 240 WR Tevin Reese Baylor

 

Denver Broncos

 

Needs: CB, LB, WR, OL

 

The Denver Broncos got man handled by Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Getting held to only eight points.  Most of the credit goes to Seattle, but they didn’t sack Russell Wilson once. Denver did add Demarcus Ware and Von Miller should come back healthy. Aqib Talib was another nice addition, but his play was inconsistent last year and the Broncos needed another play maker. One they got in Bradley Roby. Roby got into some trouble only a couple weeks before the draft. Dropping his stock to where the Broncos could get him at 31. Denver traded up to 56 to go and get Cody Latimer, some analysts had him as a late first rounder and I personally thought he would go right around where he was drafted. Michael Schofield was a great player at Michigan, but had the spot light taken away from him cause he played next to Taylor Lewan, the Titans first round selection. Lamin Barrow is under developed, but has a ton of upside and will only benefit from playing with Miller and against Manning. Matt Paradis converted from the D-line to center while at Boise State. Good value for a sixth round pick. Corey Nelson, another player who stock fell because on an injury. Nelson needs to bulk up, but could be a situational pass rusher.

 

Denver only has a couple more years left with Peyton at most. Their window to get back and win a Super Bowl is closing quickly. If they can get their first three picks to come in and contribute right away, with that and the free agent signings, the Broncos could make it back to the big game again. A couple of big ifs, but crazier things have happened. Denver, nonetheless are winners.

 

(1) 31 CB Bradley Roby Ohio State

(2) 56 WR Cody Latimer Indiana

(3) 95 T Michael Schofield Michigan

(5) 156 LB Lamin Barrow LSU

(6) 207 C Matt Paradis Boise State

(7) 242 OLB Corey Nelson Oklahoma

 

Oakland Raiders

 

Needs: QB, WR, DT, OL, CB

 

The Oakland Raiders had the best draft they’ve had in a while, at least on paper. But, for now that’s is all we have to go on. The Raiders were another one of those teams, that had been rumored to have been in contact with a few teams about possibly trading down and stacking draft picks. While the Raiders did trade, it didn’t come in the first round. Oakland stayed at five and took outside linebacker, Khalil Mack, the best defensive player on some analyst’s boards. A steal at five and an immediate impact player at either the LEO/WILL linebacker spot for the Oakland Raiders. With their second pick, the Raiders took Derek Carr, who should not have to start with Matt Schaub there. He’ll be able to sit and learn, which will only benefit him and the Raiders long term. Gabe Jackson was another guy they liked and for good reason, he has all the measurable you would want in one of your offensive lineman. Justin Ellis the DT, isn’t an elite pass rusher, but he can play the 0 technique and command double teams, in order to free up their linebackers and defensive ends. Keith McGill has the size you want in today’s corners and especially in the AFC west, since you have to play Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers twice a year, for the foreseeable future. But, when it comes down to it, this draft will probably be graded in the future off of Derek Carr’s success or lack of. We shall see.

 

The Raiders drafted well, but get downgraded cause they did not take a receiver. They still don’t have a true number one guy for Schuab or Carr. Still, they’re winners this year.

 

(1) 5 OLB Khalil Mack Buffalo

(2) 36 QB Derek Carr Fresno State

(3) 81 G Gabe Jackson Mississippi State

(4) 107 DT Justin Ellis Louisiana Tech
