E-mail Print PDF

Moose911`s first 2014 NFL Mock Draft is up, right on time before Start of Free Agency. 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 – Teddy Bridgewater, QB

      The first pick gets the only comment this time of the year, because we don`t do an explanation until start of Free Agency. After start of FA it makes much more sense to put in the extra work.

      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.


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

      3.   Jacksonville Jaguars – Sammy Watkins, WR

      4.   Cleveland Browns – Blake Bortles, QB

      5.   Oakland Raiders – Johnny Manziel, QB

      6.   St. Louis Rams – Greg Robinson, OT

      7.   Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Khalil Mack, DE

      8.   Minnesota Vikings – Darqueze Dennard, CB

      9.   Buffalo Bills – Jake Matthews, OT

      10.  Detroit Lions – Mike Evans, WR

      • DeSean Jackson joins Redskins voluntary workouts

        ASHBURN, Va. (AP) DeSean Jackson has reported for the Washington Redskins' voluntary offseason workout program after skipping the first week to take a vacation.

        The Redskins tweeted a photo of their biggest offseason acquisition working out in the weight room Monday, and the three-time Pro Bowl receiver tweeted a photo of his No. 11 jersey in his locker.

        Jackson wore No. 10 with the Philadelphia Eagles and had said he would try to see if franchise player Robert Griffin III - the Redskins' current No. 10 - would be willing to switch. Griffin quickly nixed the idea.

        Jackson signed with Washington on April 2, less than a week after getting released by the Eagles. The Redskins started their workouts the following week, but Jackson went ahead with his vacation.

      • 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith arrested at airport

        LOS ANGELES (AP) San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threatened that he had a bomb.

        The 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1 and became uncooperative with the process, airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said. She said he told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative and was taken into custody.

        A witness video posted on TMZ.com shows Smith exchanging words with an officer as he was being handcuffed and escorted out of the gate area.

        Smith was booked for investigation of making a false bomb threat. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said anyone who makes a bomb threat at an airport is potentially subject to federal charges, although no such charges have been filed against Smith.

        A message seeking comment from Smith's agent wasn't immediately returned.

        With the arrest, Smith is involved in three pending criminal cases.

        "We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment."

        A fearsome pass-rushing specialist, Smith took a five-game leave of absence from the 49ers last season to undergo treatment for substance abuse. He rejoined the team Nov. 5.

        Smith played in a 27-7 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 22, two days after he was arrested and jailed on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession. After the game, he publicly apologized for his behavior and later announced he would leave for treatment.

        Leading up to the playoffs in early January, Smith said during an interview with The Associated Press he was encouraged by the strides he had made to better himself off the football field that put life - and his work - in perspective. He said at the time he hadn't had any alcohol since before his Sept. 20 DUI arrest, and that he wasn't craving it. When he rejoined the team Nov. 5, he insisted he was on the path to lifelong sobriety stuck by that statement.

        His teammates rallied around him in support of his rehab and, later, his return to the team.

        Smith emerged as one of the NFL's most-feared pass rushers in 2012. He had a franchise-record 19.5 sacks that year, but failed to record a sack in his final six games including the team's postseason Super Bowl run.

        Smith finished with 8 1/2 sacks and 34 tackles in 11 games last season, making eight starts.

        In November, Smith pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon, stemming from a June 2012 party at his home. Investigators say several shots were fired, two partygoers were injured and Smith was stabbed. In the subsequent investigation, prosecutors say detectives found five unregistered weapons in Smith's house, including two Bushmaster rifles and an Armalite AR-10T. They say those are assault weapons illegal to possess under California law.

        Smith and former teammate Delanie Walker were named in a lawsuit last September filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court by a Northern California man who said he was shot at a party at Smith's house on June 29, 2012. The players charged a $10 admission and $5 per drink, the lawsuit said. Smith and now-Tennessee Titans tight end Walker were allegedly intoxicated on Smith's balcony when they fired gunshots in the air while trying to end the party, the lawsuit said.

        Smith, selected seventh overall in the 2011 draft out of Missouri, had previously been arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012 in Miami shortly after the 49ers lost in the NFC championship game.

        This is the latest in a long list of legal issues for 49ers players the past two years - and recently, too. The Niners, who lost to the rival and eventual champion Seattle Seahawks in the NFC championship game, have made nearly as much news away from the field as they have in free agency this offseason.

        On Thursday, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was one of three NFL players named in a Miami police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there, though no one has been charged with a crime. Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette - a former 49er - were with the woman at a Miami hotel where Lockette lives, according to the Miami Police Department report. The police say it's too early to determine whether a crime was committed.

        Late last month in San Jose, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver was arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run and reckless driving after he drove a car into a bicyclist and fled. He is the player who underwent sensitivity training after his anti-gay remarks leading up to the Super Bowl after the 2012 season. He has done outreach to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

        Last summer, another starting linebacker, Ahmad Brooks, was investigated by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office on allegations that Brooks repeatedly hit a teammate on the head with a beer bottle. No assault charges were filed because of insufficient evidence.

        According to police, Brooks hit then-teammate Lamar Divens with the bottle three times and then punched him in the face during an early morning argument June 8. Divens sustained a 3-inch cut on his forehead.

        Another member of the defense, Demarcus Dobbs, was suspended for Week 1 last season for his own arrest on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession in 2012.

      • Two Hernandez associates indicted on murder charges

        FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) Two associates of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez were indicted Friday on murder charges in the shooting death of a man last summer about a mile from Hernandez's home, prosecutors said.

        A grand jury in Bristol County returned separate indictments against Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace in the June 2013 killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd, District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter said.

        Ortiz and Wallace, who are from Bristol, Conn., where Hernandez grew up, had been charged previously with accessory to murder after the fact and had pleaded not guilty. They had been ordered held on $500,000 bail on the older charges.

        Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the killing of Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston resident who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins.

        Jenkins, who testified before the grand jury, has been charged with perjury in the case. Hernandez's cousin Tanya Singleton, who refused to testify, has been charged with criminal contempt and conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact. Both have pleaded not guilty.

        The district attorney's office said Friday that Ortiz and Wallace would be arraigned in Fall River Superior Court on the new charges at a date yet to be scheduled. The office said it would have no further comment on the indictments until then.

        Ortiz's lawyer, John Connors, said he had not seen the indictment but called it "totally ridiculous." He said, as he had in the past, that Ortiz was "just along for the ride" with Hernandez, Wallace and Lloyd on the night Lloyd was killed.

        Connors said the district attorney's office has strung his client along, charging him first with a weapons violation, then accusing him of being an accessory.

        "It almost looks to me like they felt they couldn't use him as a witness, (so) they're going to charge him?" he said. "Why wouldn't they have done this months ago? There's no new evidence in this matter."

        Questions have been raised about the reliability of Ortiz as a witness. Prosecutors say he has told authorities that he didn't see who shot Lloyd but that Hernandez and Lloyd were alone outside the car. That's different from his initial story, in which, according to court records, he told police that Hernandez and Wallace got out with Lloyd.

        Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found by a jogger in an industrial park in North Attleborough. Prosecutors have said Hernandez was upset with Lloyd for talking at a nightclub to some people with whom he had problems. They have not identified who they believe pulled the trigger.

        A message was left for Wallace's attorney, David Meier. Wallace has been described by prosecutors as Hernandez's "right-hand man."

      • How Lloyd fits in 49ers' competition at wide receiver (Comcast SportsNet Bay Area)
        Veteran Brandon Lloyd joins what should be a good competition among 49ers wide receivers for spots on the 53-man roster and playing time. The 49ers kept five wide receivers on their 53-man roster last season with two others assigned to the practice squad. Michael Crabtree: He was not the same after returning last season from surgery to repair a torn Achilles, but he was still pretty good. Anquan Boldin: He is back with the 49ers after signing what amounts to a two-year contract.
      • Donald Trump’s interest in buying Bills more than publicity stunt (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
        Donald Trump’s ploy to become the next owner of the Buffalo Bills may not be such a ploy after all. With his net worth always the subject of inquiry, but it’s no question that it’s a large sum, Mike Florio says he still doesn’t see a transition to Trump happening. “I feel like he’s trying to make an attention-grab, a publicity-grab,” Florio claims. “When it’s time to crunch the numbers, he’s not going to want to pay what it will take.” Regardless of Trump’s misadventures with the USFL and his pompous way of always finding the spotlight, a source close to Mike Florio with an educated idea of the ownership dynamic inthe NFL says other owners would be on board with the move. “It would be very hard [for the NFL] to find nine other owners that would vote against Donald Trump.”
      • Trump's ties to Kraft could help Bills' pitch (Comcast SportsNet New England)
        Donald Trump wants in on the Buffalo Bills. The Donald told The Buffalo News that hed be a great owner and pooh-poohed his role in the USFLs birth, death and litigation against the NFL. Whether Trump ultimately gains entrance to the Billionaire Boys Club depends on the owners of the other franchises granting approval. And Trump has at least one friend in a high NFL place, Robert Kraft.
