Tonight is the night, the NFL Draft is finally here. It has been months since the last college football game of the 2013 season and now we can finally see where the future stars will land.
Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater has been over analyzed and scrutinized since his last throw in a Cardinals uniform. He was projected as a top 5 pick when the season ended, now he has slid to the 2nd round by some NFL analysts.
Saftey Calvin Pryor has gotten only good attention during the combines. He was projected as a late 1st round or early 2nd round pick, now he is anywhere from 10th to 15th.
Let’s look at what some of the most recent mock drafts are saying.
Non of the CBS Sports analysts think that Bridgewater will be picked in the 1st round other than Dane Brugler who has him going to the Browns with the 26th pick. Pryor is projected by most to go in the 1st round with the highest being picked 13th to the Rams.
WalterFootball.com has Pryor going 18th to the Jets, Bridgewater 39th to the Jaguars, DE Marcus Smith to the Seahawks and Preston Brown 109th to the Bills.
USA Today has Bridgewater as the first pick of the 2nd round to the Texans and Pryor as the 24th pick to the Bengals.
It is hard to predict where a player will go in the NFL draft. Teams are so secretive, for the most part, of who they want and why. This year’s draft will have some late trades which makes it even harder to predict.
I think that there is two or three teams that really like Teddy Bridgewater. Browns, Vikings and Jaguars have shown a lot of interest in the QB. I predict Teddy will go 26th to the Browns, but I also think the Vikings could take him at No.8. He met with the Vikings several times and every insider said they came away impressed.
I really think Pryor will be a top 15 pick. I am gonna say that the Bears take him at No. 14.
Look for Marcus Smith to go late 2nd round, my prediction is 63rd pick to the Broncos.
