List Rules Upvote the player you think will be the best player to emerge from the 2014 NFL Draft

When the dust is settled on the 2014 NFL Draft, everyone from draft experts, football pundits, GMs, scouts and fans will have their say on who had the best draft and who the best player from the draft will be. Alas, there is still plenty of time for each player's story to be written. There will be busts, despite what many pundits may think, they'll be wrong about their favorite prospects as well. That's just a fact of life. But, that doesn't mean we can't a little fun and guess who will be the best player to emerge from the heap. Sometimes you never know who will be the best player in a particular draft class. Just ask the Seahawks when they picked Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 draft if they expected a Super Bowl title from a player who was so lowly regarded. So, truth be told, the draft is a crapshoot so you won't know who the best player will be for many years. But what the hey, let's have some fun and predict who will be among the best players in football history.

Who will be the best player from the 2014 NFL Draft? Will it be first pick overall Jadeveon Clowney? Or everyone's favorite college football celebrity, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny "Johnny Football" Manziel? The point is that no one really knows. Even wide receivers like Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans and Odell Beckham can defy the odds and avoid the first year jinx and become standout receivers. 

There are plenty of great football players to emerge from the 2014 NFL Draft, but only one can be called the best to come from the draft. If you think someone is missing from this list, feel free to add the player who deserves to be among this group. Who will it be? It's up to you to decide.
