This is my first attempt at a mock draft since the start of free-agency so a lot of things have changed. Teams needs are more accurate, but we have also learned more about individual prospects draft stock due to continued scouting and recent pro-days. Moving forward we’ll see things continue to take shape, but we’ll also undoubtably see things become even more unclear because we don’t exactly know what each team is thinking or planning. We like to think we have a good idea of what’s going to happen – but I think it’s fair to say that we should expect the unexpected because of all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. Each teams uses their own rating system, and values their picks, players, and roster depth in a unique way that doesn’t always match what we’d expect. Due to the possibilities of ‘red flags’, best player available, trades, injuries, and other circumstance (connections/scheme) I’ve learned to do mocks with an open-mind as if I were making the pick for the team and investing my own money to help better justify a selection. I look at all angles, all possibilities, and Im really just using the best guess I have with the information, history, and reports available to me.
Like I said, a lot will change in the next month – but here is my best thinking at what a reasonable mock could look like if the draft were held today. Again, I have no direct sources so these are my own opinion – but I study prospect value, NFL rosters, draft history, team needs, and current news almost up-to-the-second to help understand the direction a team may go with their picks. I look at all options, scenarios, and reasoning – some of which is extremely noticeable while others requires I put a lot of believe in my own thought process. I tend to ‘forecast’ what I think a team will do with unbiased opinion and by implementing logical, the unexpected, potential sleepers, my own ‘eye test’, and current reports.
I hope you enjoy.
NEW MOCK – UPDATED 04/04 (7 Rounds):
*My rankings do not always match the order I have players selected in mocks because teams draft based on their boards (not mine) and because players will never be chosen by a ‘labeled’ rank – and due to other various factors, including: scheme, fit, rising/falling, connections, and forecasting.

March 22, 2013
1. Chiefs (2-14) – Eric Fisher, OT – Central Michigan; Senior: 6’7″ 306
I think they’ll likely end up moving Albert for a 2nd Round if they go with an offensive tackle here, but regardless they need a replacement for Winston at RT as well – I doubt they view Donald Stephenson as a serious option despite the fact they used a 3rd Round pick on him in 2012. The fact that they are said to be considering 8-10 prospects makes me think they’d like to trade down, but also leads me to believe that they don’t necessarily think Joeckel is the premiere choice and in fact like Fisher or Johnson slightly better. If it’s not an offensive tackle then I think Star, Floyd, or maybe even Sylvester Williams (as crazy as that seems now) make the most sense as a starting DE option (they’d use recently signed Devito in a rotation). I honestly don’t think they’ll be many takers even if they wish to trade down so I went with Fisher. Sure, I probably personally like Joeckel better – but Fisher is a dominate pass blocker with has long arms, athleticism, and left-tackle technique so it’d be hard to debate his recent rise/consideration for the No.1 selection.
Needs: RT, 3/4 LILB, 3/4 OLB, LG, 3/4 DE, FS, RB, FB
Depth: 3/4 DE, WR, 3/4 OLB, 3/4 ILB, OT, C, TE
2. Jaguars (2-14) – DeMarcus ‘Dee’ Milliner, CB – Alabama; *Junior: 6’0″ 201
I know a pass rusher like Jordan or Mingo are typically mocked here – and I think Floyd is still worth mentioning as well, but too me Milliner makes too much sense. In fact, if it’s not Milliner I think they’d take either Joeckel or Fisher over a pass-rusher at this point. I’ve seen Milliner falling outside of the Top 10 in mocks lately and I don’t understand that – he did have a shoulder surgery, but nothing serious. New HC Gus Bradley needs to add multiple CB’s (and he come from Seattle where he had Sherman/Browner) to this roster with the losses of Cox, Ross, and Mathis this offseason. Babin, Mincey, and Branch are viable options at DE, enough so I think they have the ability to go elsewhere here and add a rusher later. I know Geno Smith has been mentioned with Jacksonville, but I believe that is if they trade down or want to trade back into the first-round. They need to add an arm as competition for Gabbert/Henne, but I’m not sold on them completely being done with Gabbert – although I do expect them to draft a QB at some point early. Milliner is a complete corner, and they should’t pass on him.
Needs: CBx2, 4/3 LOLB, RT, RB, SS, No.2 WR, QB, C, 4/3 DT, RG, TE
Depth: 4/3 OLB, S, WR, KR, 4/3 DE, OG, 4/3 DT, CB, FB, MLB
3. Raiders (4-12) – Geno Smith, QB – WVU; Senior: 6’2″ 218
I wanted to mock Joeckel here so badly because I think they need to upgrade the offensive tackle (although re-signed K.Barnes did help) spots, but it was too tempting to go with Geno. They don’t want Palmer, but seem to be stuck with his salary – and while Pryor will be given his chance they don’t have enough invested in him to warrant passing on a new franchise signal-caller here. Palmer could be cut and Pryor could play while Geno transitions for the half the season. It may be a little early for Geno, especially since Oakland has so many other needs (and no second-rounder), but I think Pryor is more of a backup/gadget/situational QB and they won’t be able to try to land another worthy one in this draft at a later point. Again, I like Joeckel or any of the OT’s better here, and would also be a fan of Milliner, Star, or Floyd. Oakland has so many needs that they could trade down (if there is a willing team trying to come up) and probably still land Smith or a player of need while obtaining more picks in the process. You don’t see an OT mocked here too often, but it should be an options considered more frequently.
Needs: CBx2, 4/3 LDE, LT/RT, QB, FS, No.1 WR, 4/3 DT, LG, TE, P, RB
Depth: Pass-Rushers, 4/3 DT, OG, 4/3 MLB, OT, 4/3 OLB, S, WR, 4/3 DE
4. Eagles (4-12) – Star Lotulelei, DT/NT/DE – Utah; Senior: 6’3″ 311
I think they need insurance at LT incase Peters doesn’t come back at full strength, so I wouldn’t totally disregard Joeckel/Fisher/Joeckel here – but I’d suspect they’d add a quality insurance policy there with another early/cheaper priced pick and take arguably the top defender here. The ‘Top Defender’ could be anyone from Milliner, to Star, to Jordan, to Floyd – but I think a healthy Star is too good to pass up as a LDE/NT option in their scheme. Again, they need an OT – but not necessarily a starter with Herremans and Peters holding those spot currently so I expect a defender or maybe even Geno Smith here. Vick will be around another year, but Geno still does make sense as a potential fit over Foles in Chip Kelly’s offense. I know they also added Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher at CB this offseason, but I still don’t see Fletcher being enough to shy them away from a prospect like Milliner. Star, Floyd, Sylvester Williams, or Sheldon Richardson all still seem like better five-technique DE options than anyone else here – Lotulelei just happens to be the one in my opinion.
Needs: 3/4 LDE, LT/RT, CB, 3/4 NT, Offensive-Speed, C
Depth: QB, 3/4 DE, WR, OG, OT, P, 3/4 NT, 3/4 OLB
5. Lions (4-12) – Luke Joeckel, OT – Texas A&M; *Junior 6’6″ 306
They lost OT’s Gosder Cherilus (to Indy) and Jeff Backus (to retirement) this offseason so the position become a huge need real quick. It could be argued that they also lost Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch this offseason too, so they need a guy like Dion Jordan. I wont argue that Jordan is strong possibility, but as Detroit knows ‘DE’s come and go, but OT’s stay a while’ so I think they’ll likely opt for Joeckel or Fisher over a defensive prospect. They could consider Lane Johnson as well, but if Joeckel and Fisher are both gone then I could see a Jordan, Ansah, Carradine, or Jarvis Jones getting more consideration. Tank Carradine is a potential sleeper for this selection, he fits the 4/3 DE spot well and is if he checks out health-wise is a Top 10 talent – so keep him on the radar. Joeckel is arguable the top player available so it’d be a steal for the Lions, but you can bet they’re probably going to be leaning towards protecting their own QB before worrying about getting the other teams.
Needs: LT/RT, 4/3 DEx2, No.2 WR, RG, 4/3 SOLB, C, CB, K, KR, P
Depth: OG, 4/3 DE, OT, S, WR, 4/3 OLB, CB, TE, FB
6. Browns (5-11) – Tavon Austin, WR/RB/KR – WVU; Senior: 5’9″ 174
Surprise, Surprise. I absolutely love Tavon and I don’t know why he isn’t getting mentioned higher in this draft. Oh wait, I think I know why – he is “just a slot receiver”. As NFL Films’ Greg Cosell pointed out – Austin isn’t just a slot receiver, “he is more than that.” Cleveland addressed the defense via free-agency, and desperately need to add some flare to their offensive attack. If Chip Kelly had been named coach I think this would be a more popular selection, but New HC Rob Chudzinski has an offensive pedigree as well. They’re losing Josh Cribbs, Trent Richardson is more of a downhill runner, and while Travis Benjamin could see a greater role this season – he isn’t Tavon. I could see a 5-technique DE prospect being an option here, say Sharrif Floyd – but aside from moving down I don’t think anyone at this point offers more of a dynamic to a team in need of offensive threats. This is the new ‘open field’ NFL and I think Tavon Austin is going to benefit from that style with his versatility. Again, I’d say Sharrif Floyd is a great option here as well, maybe even Carradine, Jarvis Jones, or Ansah so I’m not naive enough to think that this is a bit too high for him and these defenders offer more value, but I can see Austin happening.
Needs: LDE, No.2 CB, LG, QB, TE, FS, KR, 3/4 NT, K
Depth: WR, RB, CB, OT, 3/4 OLB, 3/4 DE, OG/C, SS, MLB
7. Arizona (5-11) – Lane Johnson, OT – Oklahoma; Senior: 6’6″ 303
I say it’s going to be Joeckel/Fisher/Johnson should one be available over all other options, including Smith. Levi Brown has fallen at of favor a bit, and will likely move to RT or an OG spot if they can land one of the premiere young offensive tackles here. Arizona will be in a tough spot should all three tackles be gone. I know a QB is a strong option, maybe Geno Smith if he is here – but I like the Glennon possibility by trading back into round-one regardless. As strange as it’d seem Florida State’s Menelik Watson could gain consideration here as the draft move closer, especially if they miss on the ‘Big 3′. Johnson is a rising prospect who will likely land in the Top 12 and could gain consideration as a No.1 overall selection come April. I personally believe the only other options that make sense based on their current roster are Jarvis Jones and an OLB (to compete with Sam Acho) and S Kenny Vaccaro (Bell signed a 1 year contract, and they need a SS optioned better Johnson). If it’s not an OT, I’d probably lean with trying to trade down (or reaching for Glennon), or going with Vaccaro.
Needs: LT, SS, QB, 4/3 OLB, OG, Speed-WR, C
Depth: OT, 4/3 DE, FS, WR, 4/3 DT, TE, CB, RB, MLB
8. Bills (6-10) – Jarvis Jones, OLB/DE – Georgia; *Junior: 6’2″ 245
I think Warmack should be consider, but I doubt he’ll be this pick this high despite the need. I think Geno Smith will probably be their target here. They need a QB and while its easy to expect them to target Ryan Nassib later on in this draft, you can’t always “wait” and still land your guy. Therefore, if they want Nassib – they might as well just take their guy now. If Smith is here and they need a QB, they need to take him – not wait, and hope to land another QB later. If healthy Jones could be a highly productive playmaker – he was once considered the consensus No.1 overall prospect. I think if Jones’ healthy isn’t a concern he should be a Top 10 selection (even with his poor pro-day showing). Buffalo will likely be better off trading down if they have the choice, aside from QB they’ll likely want to target a OLB, S, or WR here. Again, Warmack or Cooper fill a need – but the more likely options for value based on other needs are Jarvis Jones (OLB (upgrade over Bradham) and Kenny Vaccaro (SS option over Searcy). It may comes to the point where Buffalo is in position to select the “BPA”, which could include Warmack – but would more likely be between Ansah, Jordan, Floyd, or Ogletree. They could stand to consider a a DE prospect to compete with Mark Anderson opposite of Mario Williams.
Needs: LG, QBx2, No.2 WR, RT, SS, Big-WR, 4/3 DE, 4/3 OLB, TE, P
Depth: 4/3 MLB, WR, CB, OT, OG, 4/3 DT, RB, S, FB
9. Jets (6-10) – Barkevious ‘Keke’ Mingo, DE/OLB – LSU; *Junior: 6’4″ 241
New York has all kind of needs, but Mingo could be the best pass-rusher in the draft. I could see the Jets going any number of ways with this selection, but I think they’ll likely target an edge-rusher like Mingo, Jordan, or Jones. The next best prospect in my opinion would be S Kenny Vaccaro so keep an eye on him here as well. They signed OLB Antwan Barnes, but he isn;t going to provide them with the kind of help they’re looking for from their front-seven so while Mingo is raw he can definitely get to the QB. I think an offensive tackle prospect would be consider should one of the ‘Big 3′ still be available here, maybe even a talented (but ‘red flagged’) player like Alex Ogletree. The do need solid-depth at virtually every defensive position so I wouldn’t rule out any of the best defensive players with this selection. I think a 5-technique DE like Floyd, Ansah, or Carradine may also be tempting to use in a rotation with Coples and Wilkerson. It’s also important to keep an eye on the status of CB Darrelle Revis – it a trade could prompt them to reach for Trufant of Rhodes.
Needs: 3/4 OLBx2, RT, OGx2, No.1 RB, FS, SS, TE, No.1 WR, 3/4 LILB, 3/4 NT
Depth: CB, Pass-Rushers, QB, OT, S, OG 3/4 DE, WR, K, FB
10. Titans (6-10) – Ezekiel ‘Ziggy’ Ansah, DE – BYU; Senior: 6’5″ 271
Ansah is likely a Top 10 selection, and if fact – this may be on the extreme low-end of where he should go given his upside. The Titans will ultimately have some options here now because they’ve filled a lot of their needs in free-agency, so while they’re not in the worst shape at DE I don’t think they could pass on Ansah here. Wimbley and Morgan are nice option, but Ansah would offer almost an immediate edge-force. If Ansah isn’t available then players like Carradine and Werner could also be mentioned because behind their two starting ends they lack depth, and most would argue that Morgan has been an underachiever his whole career. I know Tennessee added Levitre this offseason, but I’d still like to think they’d considered Chance Warmack here because of his talent and still having a slight need. Also, they could also opt for secondary help with Rhodes or Trufant (Vaccaro is unlikely now with addition of Pollard). Nonetheless, I think Tennessee is in a position to trade down, or likely take the best player available on their board.
Needs: RG, CB, 4/3 DE, RT, WR, TE, RG/C, 4/3 DT, FB
Depth: OG, S, 4/3 OLB, OT, 4/3 MLB, C, RB
11. Chargers (7-9) – Chance Warmack, OG – Alabama; Senior: 6’2″ 317
I dont know if the addition of King Dunlap will be enough to keep them from selecting one of the ‘Big 3′ offensive tackles should one fall, but I know the loss of Vazquez to Denver leave a huge void at OG. Some might argue that Cooper is the better OG prospect, but, to me, it Warmack. Warmack is a dominate force on the interior and would provide San Diego with the type of talent (and protection) they desperately need. I think the addition of Dunlap will however prevent them from reaching for an either OT Watson or Fluker here. The Chargers added Derek Cox is free-agency so I think with him and their other youngsters they can avoid considering a CB here as well. I personally believe it’s going to come down to whichever offensive guard they rank higher – Cooper or Warmack. I guess you can never rule out a pass-rushers with their demand in the league, and also Vaccaro is worth mentioning here too.
Needs: LG, SS, 3/4 DE, CB, C, 3/4 NT, 3/4 ILB, Durable-RB, QB
Depth: OT, OG, Pass-Rushers, 3/4 ILB, S, 3/4 OLB, TE, WR
12. Dolphins (7-9) – Sharrif Floyd, DT/DE – Florida; *Junior: 6’3″ 297
I don’t think Floyd has fallen per say, but the reports that some teams may favor Sylvester Williams may have caught us a little off-guard. Nonetheless, I think Floyd should (and will be) mentioned as a Top 5 prospect because of his overall dominance – but I have him sliding a bit with he rise of offensive-tackles, Geno Smith, and a healthy Star and Jarvis. This is essentially a steal for Miami at this point, who have a need at DT opposite of recently franchised DT Randy Starks. Miami is still doing some things this offseason, so they may add an help at offensive tackle (trade for Brandon Albert, sign Eric Winston), a pass-rusher (sign Osi Umenyiora), and CB help (sign Grimes) via free-agency. With that said, I think there are a number of prospects still in play for the Dolphins – but Floyd fills a need, and offers a lot of value. The others players I’d consider here for them are Vaccaro, Watson, Fluker, Carradine, Jordan, and Syl.Williams depending on what happens with their needs the next few weeks.
Needs: LT/RT, No.1 RB, CB, 4/3 RDT, OG, 4/3 DE, FS, TE
Depth: Pass-Rushers, S, 4/3 DT, MLB, CB, WR, OT, OG, KR
13. Tampa Bay (7-9) – Menelik Watson, OT – Florida State; *Junior: 6’5″ 310
The Bucs lost DT Roy Miller and DE Michael Bennett this offseason so they need help on the defensive front, but I also think they need to solidify the offensive line. Penn isn’t horrible at LT, but they need an upgrade over Dobson at RT – and Watson is an under-the-radar Top 20 talent with a lot of upside and skill. I think they could consider Fluker as well if they choice to address the offensive line. There is no question that players like Tank Carradine, Dion Jordan, Jarvis Jones, Sylvester Williams, Sheldon Richardson, and Bjoern Werner would make more sense on the surface, but I think it’ll be easier to add help on the defensive line later in this draft due to the depth of talent available. They are also in the market for CB help so I don’t think it’s out of the question to consider Xavier Rhodes or Desmond Trufant as this selection either. Three other names worth noting here are Alec Ogletree, an extreme sleep in Southern Miss’ Jamie Collins, and Tyler Eifert.
Needs: LT/RT, 4/3 DE, 4/3 RDT, 4/3 OLB, CBx2, QB, TE, KR
Depth: WR, OT, 4/3 DT, 4/3 DE, 4/3 MLB, DB, OG, RB, 4/3 OLB
14. Carolina (7-9) – Sylvester Williams, DT – UNC; Senior: 6’3″ 313
I think everyone saw Williams as a Top 25 selection, but recent reports that some teams have him rated ahead of Florida’s Sharrif Floyd may have us nudging him a little higher than better. There is no doubt Williams is a premiere player in this class, and there is even less doubt that Carolina needs to add someone of his caliber to the defensive front. The Panthers needs to add multiple defensive-tackles in this draft (or the offseason in general) so the likes of Williams, Richardson, or Jesse Williams here will be popular options. Any DT they could land here would be an upgrade over their current options of Fua and Kearse. This could also be a spot you see them target a receiving threat like Tavon Austin or C.Patterson given the lack of depth at wideout they have. They have re-signed CB Captain Munnerlyn (just to a 1 year deal however) so that may push the corner need into a later round – although it’s a position that needs to add young talent. Kenny Vaccaro is another name I’d consider here as a potential starting FS, and they’ll be looking for RT help as some point as well.
Needs: No.1 WR, 4/3 DTx2, CB, FS, RT, RG, TE, Big-WR
Depth: 4/3 OLB, OG, WR, 4/3 DE, 4/3 MLB, 4/3 DT, DB
15. Saints (7-9) – Dion Jordan, DE/OLB – Oregon; Senior: 6’6″ 248
Jordan is typically mentioned as a Top 6 selection (certainly Top 10) so this would be a good pick for New Orleans. They may still add Dallas OLB Vicotr Butler, but they’re still going to edge-rushers in their switch to the 3/4 scheme. Jordan has a little injury concern, which could cause him to slide a bit – but he is still a premiere edge pass-rusher in this group. The Saints actually have a huge whole to fill at LT with Bushrod signing elsewhere (I think Brown stays on the right-side) so keep an eye on Watson or Fluker here – or maybe the Saints will look to move up for one of the ‘Big 3. tackles. I think they could go any number of ways on the defensive end, including: Tank Carradine, Bjoern Werner, Sheldon Richardson, Jarvis Jones, Keke Mingo, Sylvester Williams, or maybe even Kenny Vaccaro depending on who is taking ahead of them. Again, I think OLB/DE Jamie Collins is a potential sleeper here too. The Saints could also be in the market for a No.2/downfield receiving option like Cordarrelle Patterson so that is something to keep in mind as well.
Needs: LT/RT, 3/4 NT, 3/4 OLB, SS, 3/4 RDE, No.2 WR, QB
Depth: Pass-Rushers, OT, S, WR, CB, C, ILB, KR, 3/4 NT, TE
16. Rams (7-8-1) – Jonathan Cooper, OG/C – UNC; Senior: 6’2″ 311
They landing Jake Long to anchor the LT spot, but they may end up trying to trade former LT Roger Saffold rather than moving him to another position on the line – even if Saffold sticks around at RT, they’ll still have a need at LG. This is where I think they’ll be able to land either Cooper or Warmack to help protect Sam Bradford. Upgrading the line, which has been a musical-chair game, for St.Louis is too big of a need to pass on either of those players here. They have other needs, which will make Tavon Austin, Kenny Vaccaro, Cordarrelle Patterson, and even Alec Ogletree very tempting options here – but Cooper is too good to pass on. They have another pick at No.22 coming up where they can address another area of need, but here it almost has to be one of the stellar interior lineman.
Needs: No.1 WR, FS, 4/3 OLBx2, LG, No.1 RB, SS, C, RT, P
Depth: OT, 4/3 DT, 4/3 OLB, CB, WR, OG, QB, S, KR, FB
17. Steelers (8-8) – Tyler Eifert, TE – Notre Dame; *Junior: 6’6″ 250
A TE may comes off as a slight shock, but Heath Miller is coming off an injury in which he suffered ACL, MCL, and PCL tears last season. He has been a reliable target for Big Ben and they’ll need to have insurance just incase he isn’t ready (or able to) return fully by next season. Eifert is a WR-like target and despite having Miller would still be a great addition for them. I know defensive is a typical pick for Pittsburgh, and they’ll probably be considering some options – which include: Jarvis Jones, Tank Carradine, Jesse Williams, Kenny Vaccaro, Alec Ogletree, Bjoern Werner, Sylvester Williams, or Jonathan Hankins. They may be able to land Dumervil, V.Butler, or another edge free-agent presence to help fill James Harrison’s void however. They also be looking for a new tailback at some point, but I think it’s a little too early to consider one here.
Needs: TE, 3/4 ROLB, No.1 RB, 3/4 NT, No.1 WR, LG, 3/4 ILB, SS
Depth: OT, CB, S, 3/4 OLB, 3/4 DE, WR, C, QB, OG, KR
18. Dallas (8-8) – Kenny Vaccaro, FS/SS – Texas; Senior: 6’0″ 214
I think landing Vaccaro would be the best possible scenario for Dallas – although, I think it’s safe to say it’s unlikely he last thing long. I don’t think Dallas needs to add offensive line help as badly as some people claim, they must however get better production from the guys they have. With that said, I think it’d be tough for them to pass on Chance Warmack should he be available because he is a legitimate all-pro caliber player. Vaccaro on the other hand is that type of talent in the secondary and can be the play-making safety the Cowboys have lacked. I could see Tavon Austin be an attractive should he be available, as well as OLB prospects Alec Ogletree or Arthur Brown. It’s also not out of the question for them to consider a defensive line prospect like Carradine, Werner, Richardson – remember Anthony Spencer isn’t signed to a long term deal quite yet, and they could use DT depth as it is.
Needs: FS, Slot-WR, 4/3 SOLB, RT, RB, 4/3 DT, TE
Depth: LB, OG, 4/3 DE, QB, CB, C, S, WR
19. Giants (9-7) – DJ Fluker, OT/OG – Alabama; *Junior: 6’5″ 339
The Giants have addressed a few needs via free-agency, but they still need to add youth to their offensive line. LT Beatty was resigned but Fluker projects as a good RT, where David Diehl is nearing the end of his career. If its not Fluker, Watson, or even Cooper (they need OG help too) here they could address the line later – but I’d expect them to use multiple picks on young lineman in this draft. DT Sheldon Richardson would make a lot of sense as well because it seems they’re looking to revamp the position. I also wouldn’t rule out Eifert either, although the addition of Brandon Myers could delay a TE selection. If they aren’t able to land value along the offensive line here I think they will look to add depth/help at the linebacking core with Ogletree, A.Brown, or Te’o or for a young DE to use in a rotation to increase the lack pass-rush from last season.
Needs: LG, RT, MLBx2, 4/3 WOLB, C, TE, 4/3 DT, RB
Depth: S, WR, 4/3 DE, CB, OT, 4/3 OLB, OG, QB
20. Bears (10-6) – Alec Ogletree, MLB/OLB – Georgia; *Junior 6’2″ 242
I like Ogletree a lot, but because of ‘red flags’ I find it hard to gather where his value actually ranks. I think he could go as high as No.8 overall because of his talent, and I doubt he makes it into Round 2 – so this should be a “safe zone” for him. The Bears are parting ways with long-time MLB Brian Urlacher (plus they lost OLB’s Roach and Hayes this offseason) so Ogletree versatility will be very helpful. The added LT J.Bushrod from New Orleans, but the offensive line is still an area of concern at multiple positions so I think Coopper, Fluker, Watson, and maybe even Kyle Long will still be considered here. I could also see New NC Marc Trestman being tempted with a WR like Cordarrelle Patterson as a No.2 option. Arthur Brown could be in play too, as well as secondary help like Demond Trufant, Xavier Rhodes, Jonathan Cyprien and Matt Elam. The Bears could also consider a defensive line prospect, especially if one they value ends up falling – possibly Richardson or Carradine. The addition of Bennett took any any chance of Eifert with this pick.
Needs: RT, MLB, 4/3 SOLB, LG, C, FS, No.2/Deep Threat-WR, CB, 4/3 DT
Depth: 4/3 OLB, OG, WR, 4/3 DE, TE, OT, DB, RB
21. Bengals (10-7) – Jonathan Cyprien, SS – Florida International; Senior: 6’0″ 217
I’d still personally prefer Matt Elam, but I think there is a buzz around Cyprien which could land him in Round 1. The Bengals have Taylor Mays penciled in as the starting SS, so whether its here or with another early pick – I’d expect them to look for a better option at that position. Also, should Fluker or Watson be available I think they’d strong consider either over a safety. Andre Smith is still an UFA, and likely won’t be returning – so the RT spot is a major issue for Cincy. They look to be okay at CB, and they resigned MLB Maualuga so I don’t think thats an area they have to consider in Round 1 anymore. I think Tavon Austin could get consideration – or one of the other traditional WR could be an option, although thats something they’ll likely look to add in the later rounds.
Needs: RT, SS, No.2 WR, C, RB, 4/3 OLB, KR
Depth: MLB, OT, QB, OLB, DB, 4/3 DE, OG, CB, 4/3 DT, TE
22. Rams (Redskins 10-7) – Matt Elam, SS – Florida; *Junior: 5’10″ 208
I know, I know – Cordarrelle Patterson. Listen, I like Patterson and they desperately need a new No.1 target, but I think a quality WR (similar in ability to Patterson) is going to be there at No.46. I also understand that you can’t always wait in hopes of landing another guy at a position of need – but I think Elam is a little under-valued and is worth this selection. He or Cyprien make alot of sense here, especially since they passed on Vaccaro with their earlier pick. Aside from Patterson, the other guy who makes a lot of sense to me is Arthur Brown as an OLB in their system. They could also consider a new No.1 running-back if they value one at this point (I doubt it thought). With these two 1st rounder they must 1. secure the offensive line and 2. add a playmaker – I just thought that adding the defensive playmaker over Patterson here seemed like the better option given the state of their current safeties.
Needs: No.1 WR, FS, 4/3 OLBx2, LG, No.1 RB, SS, C, RT, P
Depth: OT, 4/3 DT, 4/3 OLB, CB, WR, OG, QB, S, KR, FB
23. Vikings (10-7) – Cordarrelle Patterson, WR – Tennessee; *Junior: 6’2″ 216
They lost Harvin, added Jennings – but they still need that No.2 wideout. If Patterson ends up being available here I don’t think they could pass on him – he is too good. They lack WR’s so this would be an easy choice, but they might also consider Ogletree, Te’o, Minter, or Arthur Brown with this selection as well. They added pick No.25 via the Percy Harvin trade so they’ll have some flexibility to maybe move up. I think that Kyle Long is worth mentioning, but Sheldon Richardson, Tank Carradine, Jesse Williams are Bjoern Werner are the other strongest candidates here. They also need a safety so should Elam or Cyprien be available they may get consideration too.
Needs: MLB, No.2 WR, 4/3 DT, LG, SS, Big-WR, RB, 4/3 DE, KR
Depth: OG, 4/3 OLB, CB, WR, S, OT, FB, C
24. Colts (11-6) – Margus Hunt, DE/DT – SMU; Senior: 6’8″ 277
Indy has made some nice addition this offseason, including defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois and Aubrayo Franklin so I’d probably shy away from Sheldon Richardson, Jesse Williams, or Jonathan Hankins here. I would however consider a defensive lineman that can offer a pass-rush from the edge. The Colts run the 3/4 scheme so most of the pressure will come from those 3/4 backers (Erik Walden and Lawrence Sidbury were signed to help with that this offseason), but they still need a front-three guy capable of getting to the quarterback. Hunt is a freakish athlete who is capable of playing the 5-technique and applying pass-rush pressure. Carradine might be an option although he is better suited for a 4/3 front, the same could be said for his FSU teammate Werner. I think they may consider a guy like Jamie Collins, Barrett Jones, or possibly a WR prospect – although neither of those players who offers as much value as Hunt.
Needs: 3/4 ROLB, No.2 WR, 3/4 NT, RG, 3/4 DE, C, 3/4 ILB
Depth: WR, 3/4 OLB, RB, OG, 3/4 DE, S, OT, CB, KR, FB
25. Vikings (Seattle 12-6) – Cornellius ‘Tank’ Carradine, DE – Florida State; Senior: 6’4″ 276 (XXX)
Carradine is an impressive prospect, and despite an ACL in November will still likely be a 1st round selection. He tested well at FSU’s pro-day as will run days before the draft so we’ll have a better gage on where he’ll land in the coming weeks – but he is a Top 10 talent for sure. Minnesota isn’t is dyer of DE help, but Jared Allen is going to become an UFA after the 2013 season so they could stand to add a young guy to the mix. With his injury rehab Minnesota would be a nice fit because he wouldn’t have to be rushed into a role with Allen, Robison, and Griffin currently on the roster – but he would offer an exceptional edge threat over the ladder two listed. I think Sheldon Richardson is the other strong possibility here, or they could opt for a MLB prospect if they feel one is warranted with this selection. Again, OL Kyle long and a safety prospect could also be in consideration.
Needs: MLB, No.2 WR, 4/3 DT, LG, SS, Big-WR, RB, 4/3 DE, KR
Depth: OG, 4/3 OLB, CB, WR, S, OT, FB, C
26. Packers (12-6) – Zach Ertz, TE – Stanford; *Junior: 6’5″ 249
Ertz might seem like a bit of a surprise to Green Bay, but they need to add a pass-catching target for Rodgers with Jennings departure. Also, Finley might only be around another season, it doesn’t seem like DJ Williams is the long-term answer, and they lost Tom Crabtree. Ertz is a WR-like target who can line up all over the field, and is a pretty good blocker as well. I think the Packers will have a few options here – maybe even selecting the best available player or trading down, but its hard to argue the importance of multiple TE’s in the NFL these days. If a viable option at offensive tackle is available they could consider that alternative since it’s undetermined on how Derek Sherrod will return, or they could consider Kyle Long or Barrett Jones here as well. They also need a RB, but I think that they’ll be able to find value in that later with a later pick – but Eddie Lacy or Le’von Bell may be options here. I think the other strong option for the Packers is a front-three player for the defensive to provide depth a unit that has its fair share of injuries over the past few years – so keep an eye on Jesse Williams, Hankins, Hunt, D.Jones, and S.Richardson with this pick.
Needs: LT/RT, RB, 3/4 NT, 3/4 OLB, WR, TE, FS/SS, ILB
Depth: OG, CB, C, S, 3/4 DE, WR, Pass-Rusher, QB, FB
27. Texans (13-5) – Jesse Williams, DT/NT/DE – Alabama; Senior: 6’3″ 323
Williams is a versatile guy who would be a nice fit with Houston. If they want a bigger-bodied NT then they may consider Hankins or Jenkins, but Williams offers the Texans good value for their scheme. They’re in the market for a new wideout opposite 32 year old Andre Johnson, so any of the top available prospects could find a home with Houston. They could also stand to consider an ILB for depth (Cushing is recovering from an ACL injury) so I could see Brown, Te’o, and Minter being considered as well. They’ll also likely consider an a RT prospect should a quality one be available. I think this will be a spot where they address the defensive line with one of the available prospects. They did lose Connor Barwin, but Whitney Mercilus should be ready to step into that spot. They could also consider secondary help here.
Needs: 3/4 NT, RT, No.2 WR, TE, ILB, Pass-Rushers, LG, CB, FS, P
Depth: WR, 3/4 OLB, S, RB, 3/4 DE, OT, OG/C, ILB, KR, FB
28. Denver (13-4) – Sheldon Richardson, DT/DE – Missouri; *Junior: 6’3″ 294
Richardson is often consider a Top 20 prospect, so while I think a true DE prospect would be a better fit – it’d be hard to pass up Richardson at this point. He may come with a few concerns, but other than Bjoern Werner there isn’t a player with as much talent as Richardson available. They have added Terrance Knighton to the defensive line, but they could stand to keep adding help. They may also opt for one of the top available linebackers here – but I think they’ve filled a lot of their pressing needs in free-agency with Welker, Vasquez, Rodgers-Cromartie so they could be in position to move down with a team looking to get back into Round 1. Richardson is really a need, but also fits the idea of best player available.
Needs: 4/3 DEx2, 4/3 OLB, RB, MLB, FS, FB
Depth: S, 4/3 DT, CB, OG, WR, LB, 4/3 DE, C, OT, QB
29. Patriots (13-5) – Xavier Rhodes, CB/S – Florida State; *Junior: 6’2″ 210
They resigned Talib for one year which is a good thing, but not a long-term thing so corner should very much be in play here – even with Talib they still need another quality CB. This could come down to Rhodes, Trufant, or maybe even Jamar Taylor. I went with Rhodes because of his size and ability to move to a safety position in the future – but I do really like Trufant as well. I think they’ll be able to retain Sebastian Vollmer (although there hasn’t been much progress) or I’d say that RT would be a bigger priority and they’d likely consider Kyle Long here. Other than a corner (or Long), the other area of need with the departure of Welker and Lloyd is in the receiver core. Amendola is a slot, but they’re going to need to add another young receiver or two in this draft. New England is always a tough read, they like to trade (and acquire picks) so thats always an option for them as well.
Needs: CB, RT, No.2 WR, 4/3 DT, RG, Big-WR, SS, 4/3 LDE, C
Depth: OG, OT, 4/3 OLB, WR, 4/3 DE, CB, 4/3 MLB, S, QB, FB
30. Falcons (14-4) – Bjoern Werner, DE – Florida State; *Junior: 6’3″ 266
Neither of the top 2 TE prospect’s are available, but with Tony Gonzalez agreeing to return for another reason they may be able to wait a round or two to add a youngster at the position. Werner offers great value here for Atlanta – he was once considered a Top 10 selection in this draft. The Falcons may add a veteran via free-agency, but I’d still expect that they target a young end to replace John Abraham at some point early in this draft, and right now the best option is Werner at this point. They’ll also be in the market for a CB here so keep an eye on Trufant, Rhodes, Taylor, and Blidi Wreh-Wilson since Robinson and Grimes departed this offseason. Peter Konz will be moving to C to take of for the retiring Todd McClure so they’ll need a new RG as well – Justin Pugh may get consideration with this selection. A young RB could be an option, but with the addition of Steven jackson that seems unlikely until later.
Needs: 4/3 DEx2, RG, TE, CB, 4/3 OLB, Slot-WR, MLB
Depth: 4/3 DT, C, RB, OG, S, QB, OT, KR
31. 49ers (13-5-1) – Johnathan Hankins, DT/NT – Ohio State; *Junior: 6’3″ 320
San Fran has 14 picks so I’d expect them to be active in this draft, trading up, down, and maybe for some veterans. The 49ers have a pretty solid roster as it is, so they’ll likely have the luxury of selecting the best player, or reaching for need in some cases. Hankins is a stellar plugger in the middle and would be a nice anchor in their 3/4 scheme. They did lose Goldson to Tampa Bay this offseason, but there are rumors they could be targeting Charles Woodson or another veteran – so I think the secondary is a position they’ll wait to address. Starting C Jonathan Goodwin is 34 years olds, and only under contract for 1 more season, so a new center could potentially be an early target – maybe even Barrett Jones here. I’d personally look for San Francisco to look for depth/help on the defensive side of the ball with this pick given the number of top defensive players at the top of this draft, most likely: Datone Jones, Jamie Collins, or Damontre Moore. Also, having lost Delanie Walker this offseason as well will also create a void for a second-TE – keep an eye or Zach Ertz should he be available.
Needs: FS, 3/4 NT, TE, K, C, QB, WR, 3/4 DE, RG
Depth: 3/4 OLB, CB, OG, S, 3/4 ILB, 3/4 NT, OT, KR
32. Ravens (14-6) – Arthur Brown, MLB/OLB – Kansas State; Senior: 6’0″ 241
With Ray Lewis retiring and Dannell Ellerbe jumping to Miami they desperately need ILB help – actually given the number of starters they’ve lost this offseason they need a lot of help. The Super Bowl Champs will have a new look team next season with the Lewis, Ellerbe, Reed, Kruger, Boldin, Birk, and Pollard departing. Arthur Brown is a better prospect than Te’o or Minter, so I’d personally favor him over those two – however, I think they’ll be tempting too. Brown is a nice addition to a team looking for new defensive leadership. They need a nice big-possession wideout, as well as a slot WR so I’d keep an eye on any of the available receiving prospects. Im sure they’d love to get their hands on hometown-star Tavon Austin, but his stock has risen too high for this selection. They could be in the market for a young pass-rusher (or they might land a veteran like James Harrison or Elvis Dumervil) so you can never rule out a premiere defensive prospect with Baltimore. Barrett Jones may be an option as a replacement for Birk as well – and the Ravens could also consider an OT – especially if they don’t bring back Bryant McKinnie.
Needs: ILBx2, LT, No.2 WR, C, FS, 3/4 OLB, SS, Slot-WR
Depth: 3/4 DE, 3/4 NT, CB, OG, QB
33. Jaguars – EJ Manuel, QB – Florida State; Senior: 6’5″ 237
They need competition for Gabbert. I like Manual as a rising prospect over the other QB options.
34. 49ers (Chiefs) – Gavin Escobar, TE – San Diego State; *Junior: 6’6″ 254
May be a little early for him. He is a big target, good hands. Nice No.2 option at TE.
35. Eagles – Kyle Long, OT/OG – Oregon; Senior: 6’6″ 313
Chip Kelly Connection. Insurance on the line incase Peters doesn’t return to old form. Offers flexibility too.
36. Lions – Damontre Moore, DE/OLB – Texas A&M; *Junior: 6’5″ 250
They need DE help and Moore is best available. One time Top 10 prospect slides down lower than originally thought.
37. Bengals (Raiders) – Manti Te’o, MLB/OLB – Notre Dame; Senior: 6’1″ 241
Maualuga is back, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to add another option. Te’o is talented and this is a nice fit.
38. Arizona – Mike Glennon, QB – NC State; Senior: 6’7″ 225
Glennon over Barkley because of fit. Arians gets QB to groom for the future, with a big arm.
***Browns – FORFEIT (Supplemental Draft – WR Josh Gordon)
39. Jets – Shamarko Thomas, SS – Syracuse; Senior: 5’9″ 213
Thomas is a sleeper, should go early though. They need two starting safeties, but have all kind of needs as well.
40. Titans – Desmond Trufant, CB – Washington; Senior: 6’0″ 190
I think he should go earlier, but landing him add depths – great value. Locker’s from the Huskies, so why not add another.
41. Bills – Ryan Nassib, QB – Syracuse; Senior: 6’2″ 227
Syracuse connection. Nassib is gaining steam, he may be gone – they may need to trade up to get him. They need a QB if they don’t take one at No.8 though.
42. Dolphins – Eddie Lacy, RB – Alabama; *Junior: 5’11″ 231
Versatile back with burst and power to establish balance to offense with young QB. Better than any option they currently have.
43. Tampa Bay – Jamie Collins, OLB/DE – Southern Mississippi; Senior: 6’3″ 250
Sleeper who may end up in Round 1. Freakish athlete who offers edge-pressure, may be better suited for 3/4 scheme though. They need to add sacks though.
44. Carolina – Keenan Allen, WR – California; *Junior: 6’2″ 206
Injury concern may cause him to fall out of Round 1, good value if healthy. They need another target for Cam.
***Saints – FORFEIT (Bounty Penalty)
45. Chargers – Matt Barkley, QB – USC; Senior: 6’3″ 227
New GM, New Coach may want to draft their own guy. Regardless, they need a backup. Barkley might be gone, but Rivers is 31 years old and playing behind an awful offensive line – he could go down to injury, or get benched if the Chargers keep underachieving.
46. Rams – Le’Veon Bell, RB – Michigan State; *Junior: 6’1″ 230
They need a WR more, but I doubt Richardson or Pead are the answer. Bell can be a lead back, and is underrated – he could be first back off the board.
47. Dallas – Robert Woods, WR – USC; *Junior: 6’0″ 201
Dallas needs a slot-WR and Woods would fit the the bill. Highly productive collegiate player who could emerge as future starter.
48. Steelers – Johnathan Jenkins, NT/DT – Georgia; Senior: 6’4″ 359
Hampton is gone so they need another big body in the middle. Jenkins is a monster, would be a nice anchor.
49. Giants – Justin Pugh, OG/OT/C – Syracuse; *Junior: 6’4″ 307
They need to continue to rebuild OL with youth. Pugh could start at OG, provide versatility at multiple positions.
50. Bears – Quinton Patton, WR – Louisiana Tech; Senior: 6’0″ 204
Trestman is going to need to add playmaker, Patton would be a upgrade over Bennett to go with big targets Marshall and Jeffery.
51. Redskins – Jamar Taylor, CB – Boise State; Senior: 5’11″ 192
Taylor is a rising prospect, should be solid 2nd Rounder. Skins added Biggers, but still need secondary depth.
Needs: CB, FS, TE, 3/4 ILB, RG, KR, WR, 3/4 OLB, RT
Depth: C/OG, 3/4 ILB, DB, 3/4 DE, 3/4 NT
52. Vikings – Kevin Minter, MLB – LSU; *Junior: 6’0″ 246
Brinkley left town, so they need help in the middle. Good value at this point.
53. Bengals – Christine Michael, RB – Texas A&M; Senior: 5’10″ 220
BGJE is still under contract for two more seasons, but they need another solid option. Michael has star potential if he can remain healthy.
54. Dolphins (Colts) – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB – U Conn; Senior: 6’1″ 195
They lost Sean Smith, and must add upgrade over Carroll/Patterson opposite Marshall. Wreh-Wilson is a big CB who plays physical.
55. Packers – Barrett Jones, C/OG/OT – Alabama; Senior: 6’4″ 306
Value pick here. Jeff Saturday retired, and they have questions among current lineman – Jones can play multiple positions.
56. Seattle – Khaseem Greene, OLB – Rutgers; Senior: 6’1″ 241
They added Avril and Bennett to help strengthen defense, but they still have to replace Leroy Hill at WOLB – enter Greene.
Needs: RT, 4/3 WOLB, TE, 4/3 DT, KR, CB, K
Depth: WR, S, 4/3 OLB, 4/3 MLB, 4/3 DE, RB, OG
57. Texans – Justin Hunter, WR – Tennessee; *Junior: 6’4″ 196
Johnson is 32 years old, and they don’t have much behind him. Hunter is a big wideout who could be a steal at this point.
58. Denver – Datone Jones, DE/DT – UCLA; Senior: 6’4″ 283
Jones should be gone by now so its great value. Denver can use all the help they can get on the defensive line – especially with Elvis Dumervil departing unexpectedly.
59. Patriots – DeAndre ‘Nuk’ Hopkins, WR – Clemson; *Junior: 6’1″ 214
They need a guy who can stretch the field, heck – they just need guys who play WR. Hopkins could be a great find this late in the draft.
60. Falcons – Larry Warford, OG – Kentucky; Senior: 6’3″ 332
Konz moves to C, and Warford can step in at start at RG. Warford is a good player, he may even be gone before now.
61. 49ers – Travis Frederick, C/OG – Wisconsin; *Junior: 6’4″ 312
Goodwin’s time is SanFran is probably about done, and if nothing else Frederick gives them depth. A team with 14 picks can afford to take a chance on a talented interior lineman over another position you might expect here.
62. Ravens – Terrence Williams, WR – Baylor; Senior: 6’2″ 208
Could be Anquan Boldin’s replacement. Baltimore needs a lot of help, but they got to get their $120M man some people to throw the ball to as well.
63. Chiefs – Eric Reid, FS – LSU; *Junior: 6’0″ 213
