2014 NFL Draft Round Four

By Chris Malumphy

The fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft began with the Philadelphia Eagles selecting Florida defensive back Jaylen Watkins. Using a pick obtained in a trade with the Cleveland Browns, the 49ers drafted Bruce Ellington a wide receiver from South Carolina. Having manuevered to use a first round pick on quarterback Johnny Manziel, and having passed on the opportunity to select Sammy Watkins early in the draft and Marquise Lee at the beginning of the second round, everyone under the sun expected the Browns to work to improve a horrible receiving corps, especially since their lone star, Josh Gordon, is facing a year long suspension and the recently obtained Nate Burleson broke his arm. It's ironic that they lost the chance to draft receivers to the 49ers, who are loaded at the position. Contrast the Browns with the Jaguars who drafted quarterback Blake Bortles and then used their next two picks on wide receivers Marquise Lee from USC and Allen Robinson of Penn State. The Houston Texans skipped over several bigger names to fill a much needed quarterback spot when it picked Tom Savage from Pittsburgh.
