2014 NFL Draft: BGN's 30 Bold Predictions

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We are almost there. Now it's time to guess!

The draft is just days away and instead of giving you a mock draft that will be mostly wrong, BGN wants to give you something different. That's why Dave Mangels and I have decided to bring out some bold predictions. These are clearly not all going to be right and honestly, some of them we hope they aren't going to happen. That said, these are predictions based on following the process, past drafts and our individual philosophies.

Below are the predictions. Feel free to share your's in the comments section. Enjoy!
