2014 NFL Draft Class

Jadeveon Clowney

The 2014 NFL Draft class is considered by many to be one of the best in recent memory. Jadeveon Clowney kicked off what ended up being one of the most athletic first rounds in all of NFL history. Taylor Lewan took the top spot all time among OT with a 10.00 while elite prospects like Aaron Donald and Odell Beckham also measured out as elite athletes in the first round.

Round Above 5.00 Below 5.00 Percent above
1 27 4 87%
2 20 10 67%
3 22 13 63%
4 18 20 47%
5 18 15 55%
6 20 15 57%
7 18 17 51%

 

Only four players in the first round measured below average for their Relative Athletic Scores, and two of them were safeties Calvin Pryor and HaHa Clinton-Dix. The other two were Kelvin Benjamin and Darqueze Dennard, both of whom have seen their fair share of struggles even though Benjamin started off hot. The 4th round actually had more sub 5.00 RAS players than over 5.00, and included such gems as RBs Devonta Freeman and James White, both of whom played for super bowl teams in 2016.
