    2013 NFL Mock Draft

    Round 1

    1. Cleveland Browns: Matt Barkley-QB-USC

    Analysis: The Browns are heading for new ownership and a total rebuild. I don’t think Brandon Weeden is a bad quarterback by any means but he needs time and the Cleveland fan base isn’t going to be patient. Matt Barkley is one of the most sought out of players in the draft and is a franchise quarterback without question.

    1. New Orleans Saints: Barkevious Mingo-DE-LSU

    Analysis: The Saints are off to a disastrous start to the 2012 season and they will benefit from getting one of the best pass rushers to come around in quite some time. Mingo is an absolute monster with a non-stop motor, great use of his hands, and closing speed that will make him a terror for opposing quarterbacks.

    1. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith-QB-West Virginia

    Analysis: The chiefs have a talented team but it is as clear as day that they need to upgrade from Matt Cassel. Geno Smith is developing into quite the quarterback in Morgantown and the Chiefs make a bold move in order to grab their franchise quarterback.

    1. St. Louis Rams: Robert Woods-WR-USC

    Analysis: Sam Bradford sure lacks that go-to receiver and is currently surrounded by a group of guys in which no one stands out. Woods is ready to contribute immediate and while he isn’t having a great 2012 collegiate season he certainly has the tools to be a pro-bowl receiver at the next level.

    1. St. Louis Rams (Washington): Luke Joeckel-OT-Texas A&M

    Analysis: The Rams will not beat anyone if they cannot keep Sam Bradford upright. They sent former number two overall pick Jason Smith to the Jets leaving left tackle as a major void.

    1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dee Milliner-CB-Alabama

    Analysis: The Jaguars need an upgrade at corner in a big way especially considering they face Kenny Britt, Reggie Wayne, and Andre Johnson each two times a year.

    1. Indianapolis Colts: Jonathan Hankins-DT-Ohio State

    Analysis: Chuck Pagano will try to build a defense similar to the one he had in Baltimore and finding a mammoth of a man to stick in the middle is a good start. Hankins is extremely powerful and can control the line of scrimmage which will free up their linebackers.

    1. Carolina Panthers: Star Lotulelei-DT-Utah
    Analysis: The Panthers strike gold filling a major need and acquiring one of the best players in the draft. Lotulelei reminds me of Ravens’ Haloti Ngata and the Panthers defense gets a lot better.

    1. Tennessee Titans: Sam Montgomery-DE-LSU

    Analysis: Derrick Morgan hasn’t been productive and the Titans defense needs to put more pressure on the quarterback. Montgomery is extremely productive and has the ability to take over games which is something the Titans’ defense lacks.

    1. Oakland Raiders: Tyler Wilson-QB-Arkansas

    Analysis: Carson Palmer isn’t playing poorly in 2012 but the Raiders have a chance to draft the guy they can groom behind him which they cannot pass up. Wilson is a gifted passer who could develop into one of the better passing quarterbacks in the league especially if he is given time to groom behind Carson Palmer.

    1. Miami Dolphins: Keenan Allen-WR-California

    Analysis: The Dolphins need to provide Ryan Tannehill with weapons and for my money Keenan Allen is the best receiver in the draft. Allen runs great routes, has strong hands, and great size that will make him a legit threat at the next level.

    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: David Amerson-CB/S-NC State

    Analysis: Ronde Barber has a date with father time and Aqib Talib is an unrestricted free agent so cornerback is at the top of the list when it comes to the Buccaneers’ needs. Amerson has amazing ball skills but has struggled a bit in 2012 but we haven’t seen a player with game-changing ability on the defensive side of the ball in quite some time.

    1. Detroit Lions: Marcus Lattimore-RB-South Carolina

    Analysis: The Lions have drafted many players trying to get it right at running back but their running game is a non-factor. Marcus Lattimore is a sure thing and the Lions will finally have a running back capable of carrying the load. Adding another dimension to the Lions’ offense will make them extremely tough to stop.

    1. Minnesota Vikings: Justin Hunter-WR-Tennessee

    Analysis: The Vikings need to find a complement to Percy Harvin for their young signal caller (Christian Ponder) and they snag the AJ Green clone in Justin Hunter.

    1. Buffalo Bills: Tyler Bray-QB-Tennessee

    Analysis: The Bills are on the verge of breaking out but their ordinary quarterback is holding them back. Tyler Bray has the tools of a top ten pick but needs to mature off the field. He may not be able to start right away but give Bray some time and he can take the Bills’ offense to the next level.

    1. New York Jets: Eric Reid-S-LSU

    Analysis: Both of the Jets’ starting safeties, Yeremiah Bell & Laron Landry, are free agents after the season and the position could use a youth movement. Reid is the best safety in the draft as he makes plays, excels in run support, and can cover.

    1. San Diego Chargers: Taylor Lewan-OT-Michigan

    Analysis: the Chargers are learning that Jared Gaither cannot be counted on. They need a franchise left tackle to protect Phil Rivers. Lewan has the natural ability to be a very good player but will need to work on his technique to excel.

    1. Denver Broncos: Barrett Jones-C/OG-Alabama

    Analysis: The Broncos’ main priority needs to be protecting Peyton Manning and drafting the best offensive linemen in the draft will help. Jones is a special player as he has the ability to play all five spots on the offensive line at an extremely high level.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals: Bjoern Werner-DE-Florida State

    Analysis: The Bengals are a young team on the verge of becoming a contender in the AFC and drafting this monster to play opposite of Carlos Dunlap will give them a fierce pass rush. Werner is the most productive defensive end in the nation and has the tools to make a big impact in the NFL.

    1. Philadelphia Eagles: Jonathan Banks-CB-Mississippi State

    Analysis: Nnamdi Asomugha is not the player he was once was and Dominique Rodgers Cromartie is coming up on free agency so the Eagles’ will have to address their secondary.

    1. Chicago Bears: Jake Matthews-OT-Texas A&M

    Analysis: The Bears just cannot get it to work when it comes to their offensive line but it is something they need to fix. Matthews has amazing NFL pedigree and should form a strong offensive tackle tandem for the Bears pairing with Gabe Carimi.

    1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Xavier Rhodes-CB-Florida State

    Analysis: you would be hard pressed to find a worst secondary than the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers pass defense is atrocious but lucky for them they draft one of the best cover corners in the nation in Xavier Rhodes.

    1. Dallas Cowboys: Chance Warmack-OG-Alabama

    Analysis: The interior of the Cowboys’ offensive line is horrid so the Cowboys draft the best guard available. Warmack will line up next to Tyron Smith and give the Cowboys an extremely talented left side on the offensive line.

    1. Seattle Seahawks: Manti Te’o-LB-Notre Dame
    Analysis: The Seahawks defense is very good and adding a linebacker that is all over the field like Te/o will only make it better.

    1. New England Patriots: Jackson Jeffcoat-DE-Texas

    Analysis: The Patriots’ pass rush opposite of Chandler Jones is a complete joke. Jeffcoat has the tools of a top ten pick and with proper coaching could become one of the biggest steals of the draft.

    1. New York Giants: Alex Okafor-DE-Texas

    Analysis: The Giants love to draft pass rushers and one can never have too many.

    1. Arizona Cardinals: Brennan Williams-OT-North Carolina

    Analysis: The Cardinals might have the worst offensive line in the league so finding a left tackle that can protect whomever their quarterback is has to be priority number one.

    1. Baltimore Ravens: Aaron Dobson-WR-Marshall

    Analysis: The Ravens have that speedy down field threat but Anquan Boldin’s days of being a big time receiver are over. Dobson is the best player no one is talking about and would give Flacco another viable receiving threat.

    1. Green Bay Packers: TJ McDonald-S-USC

    Analysis: Nick Collins was forced into early retirement due to injury and the Packers need to find someone who can formidably replace him. McDonald has NFL pedigree and is a difference maker from the safety position/

    1. San Francisco 49ers: Jonathan Jenkins-DT-Georgia

    Analysis: The 49ers’ defense is already scary good and adding a monster like Jenkins in the middle will make them better. The move reminds me of when the Baltimore Ravens signed Sam Adams and it allowed Ray Lewis to run free.

    1. Houston Texans: Terrance Williams-WR-Baylor

    Analysis: The Texans are as complete of a team as there is in the NFL and adding a weapon opposite of Andrew Johnson makes them the best team in the NFL.

    1. Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Eifert-TE-Notre Dame

    Analysis: Tony Gonzalez shows no signs of slowing down but the Falcons would be wise to draft his replacement because Eifert is a special talent that falls into their laps.

    Round 2

    *Cleveland Browns: Pick used in supplemental draft on WR Josh Gordon

    *New Orleans Saints: Pick suspended due to “Bounty Gate”

    1. Kansas City Chiefs: CJ Mosley-ILB-Alabama

    Analysis: The Chiefs can pair Mosley with Derrick Johnson inside and give the Chiefs one of the most complete linebacker cores in the NFL.

    1. St. Louis Rams: Kawann Short-DT-Purdue

    Analysis: The Rams have Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford but Short is a better player than both guys. The Rams’ defense is getting better and adding beasts like Short only make them better.

    1. Washington Redskins: Tony Jefferson-S-Oklahoma

    Analysis: The Redskins’ secondary has been exposed in 2012 so finding better talent to put out there has to be key.

    1. Jacksonville Jaguars: EJ Manuel-QB-Florida State

    Analysis: If the Jaguars are drafting this high than Blaine Gabbert isn’t working for them. EJ Manuel has developed into a good quarterback who has physical tools that are off the charts. The Jaguars need to bring in some competition for Gabbert and my money is on Manuel beating him out.

    1. Miami Dolphins (Indianapolis): Corey Lemonier-DE-Auburn

    Analysis: Cameron Wake is quite a pass rushing force and the Dolphins drafted Olivier Vernon last year but Lemonier is a special player who can take over a game. The Dolphins get a real gem and their strong defense gets much better by adding a player of Lemonier’s caliber.

    1. Carolina Panthers: Carrington Byndom-CB-Texas

    Analysis: The Panthers continue to add pieces to their defense and corner is another position of need.

    1. Tennessee Titans: Jonathan Cooper-OG-North Carolina

    Analysis: Running lanes are not opening up for Chris Johnson so the Titans need to get better play from their offensive line. Cooper is a skilled player who possesses great strength and should be a plug & play at left guard.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals (Oakland): Sean Porter-OLB-Texas A&M

    Analysis: The Bengals had the best draft in 2012 and they are off to a great start in 2013. Porter will play linebacker in the Bengals’ defense and he has excellent pass rushing ability to boot.

    1. Miami Dolphins: Kenny Vaccaro-S-Texas

    Analysis: The Dolphins’ secondary lacks play makers and Vacarro can bring that to the table and also gives the Dolphins a physical presence in their secondary.

    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DJ Fluker-OT-Alabama

    Analysis: DJ Fluker is a pro bowl talent at right tackle and adding him gives the Buccaneers one of the best offensive lines in the NFL.

    1. Detroit Lions: Terry Hawthorne-CB-Illinois

    Analysis: The Lions’ secondary is still woeful so they need to find someone who can shut down teams’ best receiver.

    1. Minnesota Vikings: Sylvester Williams-DT-North Carolina

    Analysis: the Vikings can reassemble “Williams Wall” by pairing this monster with Kevin Williams.

    1. Buffalo Bills: Marquess Wilson-WR-Washington State

    Analysis: The Bills need to get a better dynamic when it comes to their passing attack. Stevie Johnson is their number one but no one is stepping up as the number two.

    1. New York Jets: Le’veon Bell-RB-Michigan State

    Analysis: The Jets have to move on from Shonn Greene because he cannot handle the load. Bell is a tough, physical runner who fits the Jets’ mold.

    1. San Diego Chargers: Justin Gilbert-CB-Oklahoma State

    Analysis: Quinton Jammar is a pending free agent and he is no spring chicken either. Gilbert is a day one starter in San Diego.

    1. Denver Broncos: Jesse Williams-DT-Alabama

    Analysis: Williams can be put next to Derek Wolfe in the middle of the Broncos’ defense eating blockers which will free Von Miller to chase down the opposing quarterback.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals: Andre Ellington-RB-Clemson

    Analysis: The Bengals need a more dynamic runner than Benjarvis Green-Ellis. Ellington fits the bill and is a physical runner that fits the mold of the AFC North.

    1. Philadelphia Eagles: Shayne Skov-LB-Stanford

    Analysis: The Eagles continue to improve their linebacker core. Skov combines with Demeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks give the Eagles a complete group.

    1. Chicago Bears: Dion Sims-TE-Michigan State

    Analysis: The Bears’ haven’t had a legitimate tight end since Greg Olsen was traded to the Panthers. Sims is a seam threat and productive red-zone player that could help limit some of Jay Cutler’s mistakes.

    1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dallas Thomas-OT/OG-Tennessee

    Analysis: The Steelers will get David DeCastro back from injury in 2013 and drafting Thomas here would give one of the best, young interior offensive lines in football.

    1. Dallas Cowboys: Robert Lester-S-Alabama

    Analysis: The Cowboys have journey men starting at safety so adding a talent like Lester is an immediate upgrade.

    1. Seattle Seahawks: Cordarrelle Patterson-WR-Tennessee

    Analysis: Golden Tate and Sidney Rice are so-so but Patterson is a player on the rise after being extremely productive at the University of Tennessee.

    1. New England Patriots: Khaled Holmes-C-USC

    Analysis: The Patriots need to get better at center and right guard so drafting the best center in the draft is a strong move.

    1. New York Giants: Travis Frederick-C/OG-Wisconsin

    Analysis: The Giants’ offensive line is old and it’s time they start rebuilding. Frederick gives them versatility and a powerful presence.

    1. Arizona Cardinals: William Gholston-DE-Michigan State

    Analysis: the Cardinals’ defense has been brilliant early in 2012 so they draft the best player on the board which could make them even better. Gholston is an explosive pass rusher who will find a way to contribute early.

    1. Baltimore Ravens: Shawn Williams-S-Georgia

    Analysis: Ed Reed is a free agent and he wants big money. The Ravens will be strapped for cash after paying Joe Flacco so they will have to draft Reed’s replacement.

    1. Green Bay Packers: Eddie Lacey-RB-Alabama

    Analysis: there is not a lot of tread left on Cedric Benson’ tires so the Packers need to find an every down back capable of shouldering the load.

    1. San Francisco 49ers: Oday Aboushi-OT/OG-Virginia

    Analysis: Aboushi is a versatile player who will find a starting spot on the 49ers’ line in no time.

    1. Houston Texans: Nickell Robey-CB-USC
    Analysis: Robey is a gifted cover guy who will add depth to the Texans’ secondary and push Kareem Jackson for a starting spot.

    1. Atlanta Falcons: Michael Buchanan-DE-Illinois

    Analysis: Buchanan is way too talented to still be on the board but the Falcons get yet another gift. Ray Edwards has been a free-agent bust and John Abraham is getting older so Buchanan makes a lot of sense here.

    Round 3

    1. Cleveland Browns: Kenny Stills-WR-Oklahoma

    Analysis: If the Browns turn to Matt Barkley they are going to want to make sure they have a plethora of weapons surrounding him.

    1. New Orleans Saints: Aaron Mellette-WR-Elon

    Analysis: The Saints need to get better players at receiver to help take some of the pressure of Drew Brees. Mellette is a small-school stud who is an upgrade to Lance Moore & Devery Henderson.

    1. Kansas City Chiefs: Montee Ball-RB-Wisconsin

    Analysis: Peyton Hillis is on a one year deal and the Chiefs will like to have someone who can take some of the load off of Jamaal Charles.

    1. St. Louis Rams: Gerald Hodges-LB-Penn State

    Analysis: The Rams continue to build a formidable defense adding a starting caliber player in round three.

    1. Washington Redskins: Rick Wagner-OT-Wisconsin

    Analysis: Jamaal Brown has been a major disappointment and keeping RG3 clean has to be the Redskins main priority.

    1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Margus Hunt-DE-SMU

    Analysis: Hunt is a gifted pass rusher who would be a perfect fit playing opposite of last years’ second round pick Andre Branch.

    1. Indianapolis Colts: Chase Thomas-OLB-Stanford

    Analysis: Pagano continues to focus on the defense and Chase Thomas can be his version of Jarrett Johnson.

    1. San Francisco 49ers (Carolina): Landry Jones-QB-Oklahoma

    Analysis: Alex Smith is playing well but I am not sold on him as a franchise quarterback. Colin Kapernick has tools but he doesn’t have starter written on him in my opinion. Landry Jones is a gifted passer but needs to improve his pocket presence.

    1. Tennessee Titans: John Simon-DE-Ohio State

    Analysis: The Titans take another gifted defensive end simply because he is the best player on the board. Adding Sam Montgomery and John Simon should give the Titans a deep and productive defensive line.

    1. Oakland Raiders: Dion Jordan-DE-Oregon

    Analysis: The Raiders love great athletes and Jordan is that as well as a very good football player. Jordan may not start right away but he will find a way to be on the field.

    1. Miami Dolphins: Da’Rick Rogers-WR-Tennessee Tech

    Analysis: The Dolphins add another receiver for Mr. Tannehill. Suddenly the Dolphins receiver core is strong with Keenan Allen, Da’Rick Rogers, Brian Hartline, and Davone Bess.

    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin Taylor-DE-South Carolina

    Analysis: Adrian Clayborn is out for the season and this team struggles to put pressure on the quarterback. Taylor is a gifted player who should find his way on the field quickly.

    1. Detroit Lions: Leon McFadden-CB-San Diego State

    Analysis: The Lions select another corner but it is what they need to do if they want to find their way back to the post season.

    1. Minnesota Vikings: Larry Warford-OG-Kentucky

    Analysis: They found their franchise left tackle last April in Matt Kalil and now they have a player than can plug in at left guard next to him.

    1. Buffalo Bills: Kevin Reddick-LB-North Carolina

    Analysis: The Bills have a great defensive line but their linebacker core could stand to be upgraded.

    1. New York Jets: Tavon Austin-WR-West Virginia

    Analysis: Austin is dangerous with the ball in his hands and the Jets are currently lacking weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

    1. San Diego Chargers: Denard Robinson-WR-Michigan

    Analysis: The Chargers gamble with perhaps the best athlete in the draft. Robinson has the speed to kill and if utilized correctly could become a weapon.

    1. Denver Broncos: Jonathan Brown-LB-Illinois

    Analysis: The Broncos defense has some serious talent especially in Von Miller and they continue to add pieces that can contribute.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals: Cobi Hamilton-WR-Arkansas

    Analysis: The Bengals have acquired a ton of picks over the last couple of drafts so they can draft the best player on the board giving Andy Dalton quite a receiver core to work with in Cincinnati.

    1. Philadelphia Eagles: Graham Pocic-C-Illinois

    Analysis: The versatile Pocic will be the Eagles opening day starter at center.

    1. Miami Dolphins (Chicago): Johnny Adams-CB-Michigan State

    Analysis: The Dolphins pass defense is atrocious and Adams could fight for a starting spot immediately.

    1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Akeem Spence-DT/DE-Illinois

    Analysis: Spence could play defensive end in the Steelers’ 3-4 defense. The Steelers need to start getting younger on defense.

    1. Dallas Cowboys: Zac Dysert-QB-Miami-Ohio

    Analysis: If the Cowboys do not make a deep run they will start looking at options on how to get there. Dysert is extremely talented and while I don’t think he starts over Romo he gives them a tremendous option down the road.

    1. Seattle Seahawks: Wes Horton-DE-USC

    Analysis: Horton adds yet another pass rusher to a gifted Seattle defense.

    1. New England Patriots: Kwame Geathers-DT-Georgia

    Analysis: Adding beef next to Vince Wilfork should make it tougher for opposing teams to run on the Patriots.

    1. New York Giants: Jordan Reed-TE-Florida

    Analysis: Reed has the talent to be a better pro than collegiate player and Eli Manning gets yet another viable target.

    1. Arizona Cardinals: Alvin Bailey-OG-Arkansas

    Analysis: The Cardinals continue to upgrade their horrid offensive line.

    1. Baltimore Ravens: Alex Hurst-OT-LSU

    Analysis: Left tackle is a need in Baltimore as Michael Oher is far better suited on the right side.

    1. Green Bay Packers: Andrew Jackson-ILB-Western Kentucky

    Analysis: The Packers don’t have many needs so drafting a player who adds depth and starting potential down the road makes sense.

    1. San Francisco 49ers: Micah Hyde-CB-Iowa

    Analysis: Hyde could come in a challenge Tarrell Brown for the starting corner position opposite of Carlos Rogers.

    1. Houston Texans: Seantrel Henderson-OT-Miami

    Analysis: They need to find a right tackle that can replace Eric Winston. Henderson is suited to be on the right side of the line in the NFL and should challenge for a starting spot right out of the gates.

    1. Atlanta Falcons: Jordan Pryor-CB-Oregon State

    Analysis: Dunta Robinson has declined while Brent Grimes & Asante Samuel are free agents after the season.

    Lots of work on that draft. I like it from Miami's standpoint. Two potentially great wide receivers, although certainly have to check into the character for Da'Rick Rogers. Love Keenan Allen and really like the Kenny Vaccaro pick. I wonder if Cory Lemonier makes it to round 2. That would be a nice haul. As an aside, I don't see Chase Thomas making it to round 3. I think he's moving up to the latter part of round 1. Just my opinion.

    I like Allen, lemonier, and I love the vaccarro pick. Not a Darrick Rodgers fan though. Probably a little jaded since he committed to Georgia and bailed. But he also reminds me a lot of arullius benn.
