2014 NLL Mock Draft: Rounds Five and Six


38. Minnesota: Peyton Lupul: Ranked at #39, Lupul is one of the later round prospects who might be able to stick. A west coast player with Burnaby and Maple Ridge, He has 60 points this season to put him on the map. Minnesota is a team who could see him some playing time even.

39. Vancouver: Randy Jones: Ranked at #44, Jones is a sleeper pick to become a decent pro goal scorer. He has played on the east and west coast and his time in Burnaby makes him a candidate for Vancouver.

40. New England: Kyle Issacs: Ranked at #41, Isaacs is based out of St, Catharines and Six Nations and is a rare player who brings pro experience from Ohsweken in CLax. He has a ton of talent with 121 points in his Jr B career and seems like a natural pick for New England who might lack at lefty with Ryan Ward and Tracey Kelusky potentially gone.

41. Colorado: Mike Henry: Ranked at #47, Henry has become a breakout player who seems to be getting better and better. Colorado is deep on the left side but with Casey Powell and Sean Pollock no sure things to return, they are going to want to stock up on forward depth.

42. Colorado: Connor Eustace: Ranked at #33, Toronto would have loved to have Eustace drop to them. He’s a smaller defender but has held his own in MSL with Brampton. Another defensive depth guy.

43. Toronto: Ryan Watson: Ranked at #32, Watson is a project player the Rock can take a risk on in a relatively weak draft. He’s been on the west coast mostly.

44. Edmonton: Adam Bakular-Evans: Ranked at #48, Bakular-Evans could become a practice roster player that can develop into a regular with the Rush, a team that appreciates good defense. He’s a big guy at 6’4 and could pan out to become a regular in the NLL.

45. Calgary: Karver Everson: Ranked at #49, Everson is young and has produced more in each season he has played. The Junior Shamrock could stick with a team like Calgary’s depth chart since they haven’t held a forward there, and he could develop into a decent player to dish out some assists.

46. Rochester: Riley Camazzona: Ranked at #42. It might make sense for the Knighthawks to look at a goalie to bring in to camp to contend as a backup or even just to have a practice roster goalie. Amgus Goodleaf is currently their only other goalie on roster than Matt Vinc.


47. Edmonton: Macgregor Johnston: Ranked at #35, Johnston adds depth to the right side where the Rush are deep but he could be a practice player. The Rush have lost Alex Turner and Corey Small is coming off of injury so any forward depth isn’t a bad thing.

48. Vancouver: Brett Fleming: Ranked at #36, there are a lot of Nanaimo prospects this year and Fleming is one of them. He can score a lot for an undersized player and being on the west coast gives him a chance to prove himself with the Stealth.

49. New England: Jordan Wolf: If anyone is going to take an American field player then it is going to be New England, formerly Philadelphia. This team needs recognizable names and they love giving American field players a shot.

50. Colorado: Connor Goodwin: Has 138 career points at the Jr A level with Port Coquitlam and New Westminster. Another forward depth player for the Mammoth.

51. Toronto: Brady Heseltine: Ranked at #50, Heseltine has gotten mixed reviews from general managers. The Brampton product has had his flashes but would also be a project to become an NLL level player. Being in Brampton, it makes sense for Toronto to take a flyer on a young defender.

52. Toronto: Matt MacGrotty: Toronto’s defense looks good right now but it is going to get old fast. The Rock will likely have a defense heavy draft to insert some youth and with this late pick, MacGrotty looks like best available.

53. Edmonton: Mike Mawdsley: 111 career points in Junior, all with Barrie. Mawdsley adds more forward depth for the Rush.

54. Calgary: Tyler LeBlanc: A Jr B player in Ontario, LeBlanc can score with 159 career points at that level with Mimico, Halton Hills, Mississauga, and Six Nations.

55. Rochester: Pat McCrory: A defenseman with pro experience in Southwest with CLax, not a bad option for the last pick. Might even see time with the practice roster for defensive depth.
