    2014 NFL Draft: 7 Round Mock

    by Matt Richner, NFL Draft Expert and Paul Bessire, GM, PredictionMachine.com
    Last Updated: 1/18/2015 8:58 PM ET
    Utilizing our unique, objective approach to player projections and development, PredictionMachine.com presents its 2014 NFL Draft content, including a Seven Round Mock Draft, Position-by-Position Reports, Statistical Breakdowns and Future Projections for all prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft. New this year is the NFL Draft Machine for customizable mock drafts and comprehensive draft evaluation. All NFL Draft Content is FREE from PredictionMachine.com's Paul Bessire and John Ewing as well as NFL Draft Expert Matt Richner.

    NFL Draft Expert Matt Richner, who has worked and continues to work with several NFL front offices and PredictionMachine.com General Manager Paul Bessire took the reigns of all 32 teams in the 2014 NFL Draft to create this full, seven round "objective draft." With a complete evaluation of teams' strengths and weaknesses as well as an analysis of every player's talent (work that also powers the innovative NFL Draft Machine, which was used to power this process), this "mock" draft represents what each organization SHOULD do in the 2014 NFL Draft. It is not at all related to any expectation as to what teams will do in next week's draft.

    Focusing solely on verifiable, objective information about each player and ignoring what pundits think will actually happen with each pick, each draft selection below finds the ideal fit at each pick based upon the following: team needs, previous and future picks, ability to tolerate risk, players' strengths, weaknesses, ceilings and floors, offensive and defensive scheme assignments and players' relevant talent levels. For example, due to an elite roster with few weaknesses and a large quantity of picks in the 2014 draft, San Francisco can assume risk and, thus, take chances on players with high ceilings that may have red flags elsewhere, whereas teams like Oakland and Jacksonville are in the opposite position.

    Since we were running every team's draft, we followed the current draft order and did not allow for any trades. You can do this as well for free with an easy-to-use interface and instant analysis with draft class evaluation in the NFL Draft Machine.

    For clarity, Matt ran the draft boards for the Texans, Rams, Jaguars, Browns, Raiders, Falcons, Buccaneers, Vikings, Bills, Lions, Titans, Giants, Bears, Steelers and Cowboys. Paul did the rest. This process was completed over two days, but could have been done in less than two hours with the NFL Draft Machine. Based on these results and the NFL Draft Machine analysis, the top five classes are: 1) Jets 2) Browns 3) Packers 4) Ravens 5) 49ers. The bottom five classes are: 32) Titans 31) Colts 30) Bears 29) Buccaneers) 28) Raiders. The teams with the most projected wins added from the draft class are: 1) Jaguars (1.3) 2) Texans (1.2) 3) Jets (1.1) 4) Ravens (1.1) and 5) Cowboys (1.0). No team in this mock draft fails to add a starter for 2014.

    The Predictalator

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.
