The 2014 NFL Draft is just two days away, and the time between now and then will be filled with millions of different projections of how the first round will fall. We add to those mock drafts with another of our own - with a little twist. We draft movie athletes into the NFL.
We are going to have a little fun this morning. With the 2014 NFL Draft just two days away, a lot of the internet is going to be churning out mock drafts as fast as they can - and we are going to add to that, but we are not going to use the actual draft prospects, at least for this mock. Instead, today's mock big board is full of the fictional movie characters we have all seen on the big screen.
The key there is, it has to be semi-fictional. I'm not putting Michael Oher on the bog board, since he's actually an NFL player. A movie like "Friday Night Lights" however is free game, since it's not about NFL players. Hopefully that distinction makes sense.
The Titans did not pick up the fifth year option on Jake Locker, which means he is on a short leash as the team decides whether this is his final year in Tennessee or not. Picking up Mox here gives them time to develop the youngster while deciding what to do with Locker.
The Rams already added a wide receiver, now they continue to address the offense with a running back, but also target a need on defense with Jones, who was thrown onto the defense mid-game as a safety, and dominated. Best of both worlds for the Rams.
A undersized cornerback, Djordjevic could slide over and pick up a safety position. He's got the heart to succeed, though he has a history of not getting along with coaches. Maybe a second stint under coach Nickerson in college has him ready to make the NFL leap.
During the 2013 season, in became clear that the Cowboys had to fix their defense - then they lost DeMarcus Ware in the offseason. Campbell gives them a new pass rusher, and the defensive leader they must have.
Linebacker may not be among the top needs for the Ravens, but are you telling me John Harbaugh would turn down a linebacker who he just needs to tell to get the ball, and he will? Well, either that or he will kill someone.
Geno Smith needs weapons, which Murphy provides. He's a true hybrid at the position - even before the split out TE was a norm in the NFL. Plus, if you look on the bright side, he will never be offsides on an audible.
The Dolphins take a risk by selecting Jackson here, assuming they will either be able to pick his brother in the second round or that Jamal will be able to succeed without Andre. It did not work in the past, but the two Jacksons have proven to be elite before - now Jamal needs to be able to do it again.
The Cardinals need to find a replacement for Carson Palmer, who is not getting any younger. Harbor needs time to make sure his leg heals fully, and can use the time behind Palmer as a developmental period.
The Chiefs need help on the offensive line, and Billy Bob, assuming medical clearance is obtained for him and his cat, will provide that. He could line up at center or guard. When he pulls, he will simply dominate at the second level.
A big, powerful blocker, Lastik is probably a right tackle at the NFL level, but he has had success on the left side of the line already. Could start on the right with an eye toward developing into a left tackle.
Originally projected as a darkhorse to end up as a number one overall pick, Mack slides to 25th today, and he's probably not very happy about it. The Chargers should be ecstatic about that, because he is going to tear up some people to prove he should have been picked higher.
With Cush under center, the Browns now look to shore up the offensive attack with a dynamic runner (with or without shoes). They use the pick they stole from the Indianapolis Colts for Trent Richardson to grab an incredible runner.
The first woman in the NFL finds herself in New Orleans, as Icebox brings her intensity and drive to Rob Ryan's defense. After a poor decision to try cheerleading to be more of a girl, O'Shea returned to the Little Giants and again dominated. She will do the same at the professional level.
Tom Brady may continue to be the starter for the Patriots for the foreseeable future, but he's not getting any younger, and the team has to start considering the future. Ryan Mallett has potential, but not like Drew, who has Andrew Luck style hype leading into the draft.
Jim Harbaugh is not a typical coach, and he wants to prove it to the 49ers among all the speculation that he is wearing out his welcome in the Bay Area. What better way than taking a one-trick pony like Gump and turning him into something dynamic. Can you imagine what could be in this box of chocolates once Harbaugh gets involved?
The Seahawks have an insane defense, so they should spend this Draft adding to the offense. Elliott is...mature...for this Draft, but he is a good possession receiver and should become a reliable target for Russell Wilson. The concerns about his reliance on pain killers and his partying lifestyle have to be answered before the Seahawks can fully commit to this pick.
