The 2014 NFL draft day surprises began almost immediately and made for one of the more intriguing first rounds in recent memory.
(PRWEB) May 15, 2014
The Houston Texans took Jadeveon Clowney with the top-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft last week. After months of speculation and questions about Clowney’s work ethic, the Texans ultimately chose the defensive end out of South Carolina. While Clowney’s selection wasn’t shocking, there were plenty of other surprises that took place during the NFL’s annual selection meeting.
Now, PrintableBrackets.net is taking a look back at the good, the bad and the ugly from the 2014 NFL Draft.
“Clowney headlined a star-studded list of players that went in the first round of the draft,” said Printable Brackets spokesperson Zaniel Worth. “The draft day surprises began almost immediately after the Clowney pick and made for one of the more intriguing first rounds in recent memory.”
After the St. Louis Rams took Auburn offensive lineman Greg Robinson, the Jacksonville Jaguars surprised many by taking UCF quarterback Blake Bortles with the third overall pick. Bortles wasn’t projected by most experts to be the first quarterback off the board, let alone the third overall pick.
“The Bortles pick set the tone for the rest of the draft,” said Worth. “After the Jags pulled the trigger on the pick, other teams began gamble a bit.”

“Easily the most fascinating story of the 2014 NFL Draft was the freefall of quarterback Johnny Manziel,” said Worth. “If the Dallas Cowboys ended up taking Manziel, social media may have broken!”
Manziel ended up going to the Cleveland Browns, who traded with the Philadelphia Eagles to take him with the 22nd overall pick.
