This article is one of a 32-part series in which the goal is to identify one relatively unheralded player selected in the 2014 NFL Draft who appears to be an especially good schematic fit with his new NFL team.

A total of 68 selections were made during the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the 2014 NFL draft and there were plenty of head-scratchers among them. What were the most shocking developments? The Patriots taking investing a second round pick in a QB makes the list... but just barely.
