Peyton Manning is back with most of his parts this season. Nick Foles surprised us all and should have another nice year. Brady’s numbers were down, But he hopes for a healthier cast around him. Cam Newton could have a down year after surgery and many new faces in Carolina.
There’s always players that get drafted higher than they should. Some have had success in early years and aren’t what they should be. Others stock can be hurt by a bad quarterback or offensive line. Let’s take a look on some names I’m going to avoid drafting too high or at all this season.
Lacy, Bernard and Keenan Allen were just a few of the stand out rookies in 2013. Here’s some names to keep in mind when you draft. They are in no particular order. As we’ve seen, anyone can become a key member of your roster. Rookies usually aren’t worth a high draft pick. But do add depth and starting ability.

Here is my final round 1 edition. It doesn’t include trades. However, I expect there to be a lot of them. Atlanta, Philly and others may look to move up. While teams in the back end could move out of the first round. Which could lead to more quarterbacks going toward the end. Houston is on the Clock…
This is a no trade mock draft. Houston and Atlanta are the hot talk for a trade. That would most likely send Jadeveon Clowney to the Falcons with the first overall selection. If Houston is sitting at six I think they will go for a QB like Manziel or Bortles. Minnesota, Cleveland and Tampa Bay could all grab Quarterbacks early. Cleveland could wait until the second selection in the first round. This is a deep draft at many positions.
It seems like a good crop of small school players this season. Many who will make impacts on Sundays from the break of camps. Lets take a look at some more who could make that big jump.
In part one we took a look at quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Runningback Terrance West. Both should make an impact in the NFL. Let’s look at some more prospects who could shine at the next level.
Not every player who gets drafted comes from a big school. Some players are over looked or develop later. Academics can play a role also. We’ve seen players from smaller schools play big roles in the pros. Let’s take a look at a few from this years crop of prospects.
