2014 NFL Draft order: Picks 1-24 set following first week of playoffs

Andy Lyons

After a down game from Andy Dalton, could the Cincinnati Bengals be looking for a new quarterback in the draft?

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Following the first weekend of playoff games, four more picks are set in the 2014 NFL Draft. Now picks 1-24 are determined.

Green Bay will pick No. 21, Philadelphia No. 22, Kansas City No. 23 and Cincinnati No. 24.

Despite making the playoffs three consecutive years, the Cincinnati Bengals may want to look for a quarterback in this year's draft. Starter Andy Dalton threw two costly interceptions in Cincinnati's playoff loss to San Diego, leaving his future somewhat in doubt. From Cincy Jungle:

Asking if Dalton should be considered the quarterback of the future is a legitimate question, from every divisive angle of the debate. Dalton is up for a contract extension over the offseason and the Bengals have to ask themselves, do they want to go forward with this.

If the Bengals want to go the same route they did with Dalton in the draft and take a safe player, someone like Alabama's AJ McCarron might be worth a pick in the third round. If they want to roll with Dalton for another season, drafting a high-upside quarterback later is an option. A player like Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas or Pittsburgh's Tom Savage would fit that criteria.

Picks 1-20 were set following the completion of the regular season with the Houston Texans taking the No. 1 pick.
