Moose911`s first commented 2014 NFL Mock Draft is up. One draft day trade is always included.

I would love to get some comments on my Mock, also critical comments and what you honestly think about the picks. But pleeease, keep in mind that I am not a native USA born football fan, so be gentle and leave them with style and respect.

1.   Houston Texans – Blake Bortles, QB

I got ripped from some Texans fans last year for taking a QB and see your results… NOW clearly a need for Houston so the no.1 pick will be the QB position AGAIN, like so many years before.

Despite reports of a not tooooo spectacular Pro-Day I still believe he is considered by the Texans. On the other hand Clowney comes more and more to my mind as the 1st overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Previous pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB

2.   TRADE: Atlanta Falcons from St. Louis Rams (Trade Redskins 2012- RGIII) – Jadeveon Clowney, DE

GM Les Sneed came from ATL to the Rams. Knows all the Front Office people there well. I think they move it and already have a deal in place (no additional first rounders I guess), but after playing FA so slow they have to get extra picks.

Atlanta pick comes down to Clowney or Mack.

3.   Jacksonville Jaguars – Sammy Watkins, WR

For me this makes sense. Not much of an offense, your main WR is always suspended and your franchise Rushing leader is gone. Henne can play QB and to add a weapon like Watkins makes as much sense as a rookie QB.

4.   Cleveland Browns – Teddy Bridgewater, QB

Puh, the Browns are the Browns, so I never will figure out what they will do. Releasing your first round pick before drafting him is not possible so why not try another QB, this time even higher than in 2012.

Previous pick: Blake Bortles, QB

5.   Oakland Raiders – Mike Evans, WR

Same like no. 4 but some fancy moves (including the no-move for Saffold) in FA. Manziel, will not happen like predicted before FA Mock Draft. Schaub will start and throw to the other team a pick 6. Skill position is on my mind. See pick, but adding D. Jackson will change everything.

Previous pick: Johnny Manziel, QB

6.   St. Louis Rams – Greg Robinson, OT

Moved down and almost have to pick a OL with all those nasty D`s in the NFC Best. He or Matthews should make most sense. But with Fisher you never know. Look out for bad boy moves: Incocnito (knows and likes J. Long well) and the other Michigan guy, Taylor Lewan. Brrr, that would be even more 15yard penalties against the Rams in 2014.

7.   Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jake Matthews, OT

I think this is needed, because I don`t see A. Collins as a RT ad Donald Penn was cut. DE should be set so will move on with my K. Mack pick.

Previous pick: Khalil Mack, DE

8.   Minnesota Vikings – Johnny Manziel, QB

At no. 8 the Vikings admit, that they paniced with C. Ponder some years ago and choose the pick the star QB from Texas A&M. This guy will be loved in Min.

Previous pick: Darqueze Dennard, CB

9.   Buffalo Bills – Khalil Mack, DE/OLB

The talented third OL missing in this Mock, or a steal of a DE how should long be gone or a huge/speedy WR for your 2nd year QB…

I like every pick, to be honest, but hunting Tom Brady would be fun and also you can get rid of M. Williams contract after one or two years.

Previous pick: Jake Matthews, OT

10.  Detroit Lions – Justin Gilbert, CB

After FA which means the Golden Tate signing, I don`t think the Lions take a WR. Secondary was a mess in 2013 and a talented CB just fits what they need.

Previous pick: Mike Evans, WR

  • Seahawks to open NFL season vs. Packers

    NEW YORK (AP) Mike McCarthy promises there won't be any bad memories plaguing his Green Bay Packers when they open the NFL season on Sept. 4 at Super Bowl champion Seattle.

    The last time Green Bay visited CenturyLink Field was in Week 3 of the 2012 season, a 14-12 Seahawks victory clinched on what now is often dubbed the "Fail Mary." Russell Wilson's desperation pass on the final play was called a touchdown reception for Golden Tate by the replacement officials.

    A few days later, the lockout of the regular officials ended.

    "This game won't be about the past," he said. "It will be about the 2014 Green Bay Packers.

    It's the third straight season the Packers have traveled to face the defending Super Bowl champions.

    "It's a tremendous opportunity for our football team," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "We have experience playing in the kickoff opener three years ago, and we will draw on that. Obviously, being the visiting team this time presents new challenges. It will help sharpen our focus even more during training camp and the preseason."

    That Thursday game is the first of four prime-time games on opening weekend. Also at night will be a Sunday matchup of AFC champion Denver and Peyton Manning hosting his former team, Indianapolis; and a Monday night doubleheader with the New York Giants at Detroit, followed by San Diego at Arizona.

    The NFL will play three games in London: Dolphins-Raiders on Sept. 28; Lions-Falcons on Oct. 26; and Cowboys-Jaguars on Nov. 9. The Detroit-Atlanta game will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET in an experiment to test the NFL's audience draw on a Sunday morning.

    A Saturday doubleheader in Week 16 has San Diego at San Francisco and Philadelphia at Washington.

    For the first time, games in Weeks 5 through 10 can be flexed from Sunday afternoon to night, with a limit of two. Beginning with Week 11, a Sunday game can be moved to prime time each week. Also, a select number of Sunday afternoon games are being "cross-flexed," moving between CBS and Fox to potentially draw more viewers.

    The Thanksgiving tripleheader features three strong division rivalries: Chicago at Detroit, Philadelphia at Dallas, and Seattle at San Francisco, a rematch of the memorable NFC title game last January.

    That game will be played in 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., which opens in Week 2 when they host Chicago in a Sunday night match.

    Looking for the latest installment of Manning vs. Tom Brady? The Patriots host it on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 2.

    And for those looking for the rematch of the Super Bowl, Seattle's 43-8 rout of Denver, it's on Sept. 21 at Seattle. Denver opens the season against three 2013 playoff teams: Indianapolis and Kansas City at home, then at the Seahawks.

    "I think when you look at it, we have to start fast," Broncos general manager John Elway said. "We knew it was going to be a tough schedule playing the NFC West, and when we finish first in our division like we have the past three years, it is always going to be a tough schedule with a lot of good football teams on it."

    Bye weeks begin in Week 4 when Arizona, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Seattle and St. Louis are off. They end in Week 12 when Carolina and Pittsburgh are idle.

    The season ends Dec. 28 with all divisional games.

  • Seahawks QB Russell Wilson to divorce wife

    RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has announced that he and his wife Ashton are divorcing.

    Wilson made the announcement in a statement released by the Seahawks on Wednesday. He says decisions like this are not easy and respectfully asks for "prayers and understanding and privacy during this difficult time."

    The pair married in January 2012 after he finished his college career at Wisconsin and before he was drafted by the Seahawks. The couple had been visible at Seahawks events for his first two seasons in the league.

    Wilson led Seattle to its first Super Bowl title in February, when the Seahawks overwhelmed the Denver Broncos.

  • Seahawks acquire QB Terrelle Pryor

    ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have traded away the final player drafted by late owner Al Davis.

    Oakland dealt quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday for a seventh-round pick in next month's draft.

    The Raiders fulfilled Pryor's wish to be traded a day before the start of their offseason program. Pryor had asked to be dealt after the season when he lost his starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin, and the Raiders made the move after acquiring Matt Schaub from Houston to be the starter.

    Pryor said on Twitter: "Thank you Mr Davis and Raidernation for the unbelievable support!! I will miss the Fans and all of the teammates I have met over the years with the Raiders organization!!"

    The Raiders took Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft in 2011, less than two months before Davis died. Pryor was suspended for the first five games by Commissioner Roger Goodell, who ruled he must miss the time he would have served under a suspension had he stayed at Ohio State.

    Pryor got on the field only once as a rookie, committing a false start before his first play. He then played sparingly late in his second season before beating out general manager Reggie McKenzie's hand-picked starter, Matt Flynn, in training camp last summer.

    Pryor showed flashes of what he could do early in the season, completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 845 yards, four touchdowns, two interceptions and a 97.6 passer rating in his first four starts. He also brought the running element to Oakland's offense and set an NFL record for quarterbacks with a 93-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage against Pittsburgh on Oct. 27.

    That was the final real highlight of his first year as a starter. He lost his job to McGloin a few weeks later after struggling through a knee injury in a loss to the New York Giants. Pryor had completed 50.1 percent of his passes for 714 yards with one touchdown, eight interceptions and a 44.2 passer rating in his four starts before losing his job.

    He played only sparingly after that until starting the season finale against Denver. Pryor finished the season having completed 156 of 272 passes for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with a passer rating of 69.1. He also rushed for 576 yards on 83 carries, but was sacked 31 times.

    Pryor will compete with Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels for the backup job to Russell Wilson on the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.

    "Terrelle is an incredibly explosive athlete and we're excited for him to come in and compete," Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a statement.

    The Raiders had already decided to go in a different direction at quarterback when they traded a sixth-round pick to Houston for Schaub. Coach Dennis Allen had already chosen Schaub as his starter and McGloin is in place as the backup. Oakland could still draft a quarterback next month.

  • Bengals exercise WR A.J. Green's option for 2015

    CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals exercised a 2015 contract option for receiver A.J. Green on Monday, letting them turn their focus to an extension for quarterback Andy Dalton.

    Green was the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft and was entering the final season on his deal. The collective bargaining agreement allows teams to exercise a fifth-year option on players drafted in the top 10. The Bengals will have to pay him the average of the top 10 receivers in the NFL.

    Green has 3,833 yards receiving in his first three seasons, trailing only Randy Moss' 4,163 yards in his first three seasons. He set club records with six 100-yard receiving games and five straight 100-yard games last season. He finished with 1,426 yards, trailing only Chad Johnson's club record of 1,440 yards.

    Bengals owner Mike Brown said at the NFL's annual meeting last month that he planned to exercise the fifth-year option on Green, which had to be done by the first week in May.

    "It's what is in the new CBA," Green said on Monday morning. "There's nothing I can do about it."

    By exercising the option, Bengals can wait until after next season to talk to Green about a long-term deal.

    "That's one thing I don't ever worry about, that business side," Green said. "I feel like my body of work speaks for itself. So whenever the time is right, it happens."

    Dalton was taken in the second round in 2011, so he's not subject to an option year. His deal expires after this season. Dalton said on Monday that the Bengals have talked to him about an extension, but nothing appears to be imminent.

    The first Sunday Night Football game of the 2014 season features the second meeting between Peyton Manning and his former team when the Denver Broncos face the Indianapolis Colts and his young replacement, quarterback Andrew Luck, on Sept. 7. With the NFL Network adding eight games to its schedule, there will be more night games than ever this season.

  • Report: Jacobs have had discussions about Bills (The Associated Press)
    The Jacobs family is, in fact, involved in helping secure the Bills' future in Buffalo, and hasn't ruled out getting involved in buying the team. Jeremy Jacobs Jr., the son of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Sr., told The Buffalo News on Wednesday that the family has been engaged in discussions involving the franchise's future, but said it was too early to say whether it will make an attempt to buy the team. Bills owner Ralph Wilson died last month. In a released statement, Jacobs Sr. said he has no intention of selling the Bruins in order to purchase the Bills, a move that would be required because NFL rules do not allow owners to control major sports franchises in separate markets.
