NFL Draft 2014: Comparing mock draft gurus' top five picks

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

There are a lot of mock drafts out there and quite a few mock draft gurus as well. They all seem to have their unique ideas as to who they see each team picking in the 2014 NFL draft. No two are exactly alike, even in the top five. With the Raiders picking at number five, I thought it would be interesting to collect the top five of a few of the more prominent mock drafts from around the interwebs and let you judge for yourself.

These are how many of the mock drafts currently stand as of January 20, 2014:
