NFL draft
 < 2013 2015 > 

The 2014 NFL draft was the 79th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible football players. The draft, officially the "Player Selection Meeting",[1] was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York on May 8–10, 2014,[2] beginning at 8 pm EDT on May 8.[3] The draft was moved from its traditional time frame in late April due to a scheduling conflict at the venue.[4]

There was discussion leading up to the draft as to the future of the event in New York City, where it has been held since 1965. Given the increased interest the draft has garnered over the past decade,[5] there is a belief that the event may have outgrown Radio City Music Hall, which has been the venue for the past nine drafts. The possibility of extending the draft to four days was also being discussed. The NFL will decide in late summer where and when next year's draft will take place.[6]

The Houston Texans opened the draft by selecting defensive end Jadeveon Clowney from the University of South Carolina. The last time a defensive player was taken with the first overall selection was in 2006 when the Texans selected Mario Williams.[7] The Texans also closed the draft with the selection of safety Lonnie Ballentine of the University of Memphis as Mr. Irrelevant, which is the title given to the final player selected.[8]

The St. Louis Rams made history in the seventh round by selecting Michael Sam, who became the first openly gay player to ever be drafted in the NFL. Sam was selected with the seventh to last pick of the draft.[9] Sam came out publicly in the months leading up to the draft.[10] U.S. President Barack Obama called Sam's selection "an important step forward today in our Nation's journey."[11]

Early entrants[edit]

A record 98 underclassmen announced their intention to forgo their remaining NCAA eligibility and declare themselves available to be selected in the draft.[12] When including four players who received degrees but still had eligibility remaining, the number swells to 102.[13] Fourteen underclassmen—plus Teddy Bridgewater who graduated with eligibility remaining—were selected in the draft's first round,[14] including the first four and six of the first ten players selected.[15]

Determination of draft order[edit]

The draft order is based generally on each team's record from the previous season, with teams which qualified for the postseason selecting after those which failed to make the playoffs.[16] The Houston Texans with a 2–14 record in 2013 held the first selection of each round. The Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens finished 2013 with identical 8–8 records and strength of schedule ratings, hence a coin flip was used to determine the selection order — the Cowboys won the flip and thus selected ahead of the Ravens.[17]

Supplemental draft[edit]

The supplemental draft was held on July 10, 2014. For each player selected in the supplemental draft, the team forfeits its pick in that round in the draft of the following season. 4 players were eligible, but for the second straight year no players were selected.[21]

Summary[edit]

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) led all college athletic conferences in terms of first round selections with eleven, including the first two picks of the draft.[14] For the first time since the league's second draft in 1937, no player from the University of Texas was selected.[22]

For the second year in succession — and only the second time since 1967 — no running back was selected in the first round.[23] The first player taken at the position was Bishop Sankey who was selected in the second round with the 54th pick overall. This is the latest point in the history of the draft for the first running back to be selected.[24]
