Mike Mayock's Top Fantasy Prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft

Mike Mayock is an NFL analyst and their announcer for the Thursday Night NFL Network games. I really like his style and "tell it like it is" attitude.

Here are his top offensive fantasy prospects in the top 50 overall of this years NFL Draft and my comments on the rankings. His overall prospect rankings are in parenthesis. 

1 Johnny Manziel (10) (I think JF is a seat seller but not the best QB)
2 Blake Bortles (15)
3 Derek Carr (20) I like Bridgewater here
4 Jimmy Garoppolo (38) 
5 Zach Mettenberger (40) What about Tom Savage? (90)
6 Terry Bridgewater (42) Way too low IMHO

1 Bishop Sankey (27) I disagree here Hyde is better
2 Carlos Hyde (31)
3 Jeremy Hill (49) I like Tre Mason and his bruising NFL style more

1 Sammy Watkins (4)
2 Mike Evans (7)
3 Odell Beckham (17)
4 Brandin Cooks (21)
5 Kelvin Benjamin (26)
6 Marqise Lee (28) (Could be higher-stock has dropped too much)
7 Cody Latimer (50)

1 Eric Ebron (8)
2 Jace Amaro (32) (I favor Austin Seferian-Jenkins a little more but both are tall TEs who could be WRs)

-So a QB, 2 WRs and a TE in the top 10 picks of 2014. Except that is based on best player available and not team need.
-Mayocks Mock Draft has Johnny Manziel falling to Dallas at 16
and the first QB is Blake Bortles to TEN at 11. I have TEN going same but also have a few more QBs drafted before then. Truth is it may be feast or famine for the QBs in round one. It could be a QB run if someone pulls the trigger early.
