2013 NFL Mock Draft

Weekly Updates every Thursday.
Kansas City Chiefs:LukeJoeckel, OT, Texas A&M
The Chiefs just traded for QB Alex Smith. LT Brandon Albert was just franchised. However, thisdoes not rule out LT Luke Joeckel. Most NFL insiders believe he is still at the top of the Chiefsboard.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport,
they are still very interested in him. Theycould still draft Joeckel as a RT and replace Albert next year if he walks. The Kansas City Starbelieves Albert was retained as trade bait but it is highly unlikely someone will give up anumber 1 and sign him to a long term deal. The only team that would consider that is the Colts.Until we hear different Joeckel is still the favorite to go number one.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
The Jaguars need a pass rush. New HC Gus Bradley learned to build a team on defensive speed
from Pete Carroll. Jordan was the most impressive DE/OLB at the combine. The 6’7” 255 lb.
rush linebacker was under used at Oregon, often dropping into coverage on tight ends or slotreceivers. We have a hard time believing Carroll was the only one calling for Bruce Irvin lastyear at #15 from his staff. Bradley is going to take the player that fits his defense and has themost potential to succeed. At this juncture Dion Jordan fits the mold.
Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd , DT, Florida
The Raiders want to give QB Terrelle Pryor every chance to succeed and will not go QB. Theyhave only been expressing interest to get someone to trade up to 3 and take Smith. If the
Raider’s do not move they most likely will go defense and address the line. Richard Seymour is
owed 6.5 million this year and is cut bait. Tommie Kelly was terrible and Desmond Bryant justgot arrested. Upgrading to Floyd, who is the top DT, would fix the pass rush and allow the
Raider’s to trim down their cap number.
Philadelphia Eagles: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
The Eagles resigned QB Michael Vick. They must get him protection. OT Jason Peters is comingoff a season ending achilles injury. He may move to the other side and allow Fisher to take overthe blindside. New HC Chip Kelly is an offensive minded coach and, with the defensive depth inthis class, will most likely sure up his offense first.
Detroit Lions: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
The Lions would want Eric Fisher at this pick but he is off the board. GM Martin Mayhew evenadmitted that he's looking for a new CB. Milliner is the top CB in this draft and confirmed it withhis combine. He will not have a pro-day due to surgery but is too good of a value to haveDetroit pass on.
Cleveland Browns: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
The Browns do not want QB Brandon Weeden. 1. He is going to be 30. 2. He is only in hissecond year. 3. They un-successfully tried to trade him. 4. The office that drafted him is gone. 5.He was terrible last year. Should we go on? QB Geno Smith may not be that franchise QBprospect that is in every draft, but the Browns are desperate. They have a New HC, OC, DC, andfront office. GM Michael Lombardi said there is no QB worth drafting in the first round but thatis probably because he did not anticipate Geno Smith falling. If he is available, it will be hard forthe Browns to pass on a QB upgrade and go defense; which was not that bad last year.
Arizona Cardinals: Matt Barkley
Matt Miller, of the Bleacher Report, reported that one of his sources said Matt Barkley will not
make it past the Cardinals at 7. The Cardinals are desperate. Not one of their QB’s belong on an
NFL roster. In this mock they are hurt too because the top two OT are gone. The Cardinals needto make a pick that will appease the fans and WR Larry Fitzgerald. Matt Barkley would have
been a top 3 pick in 2012 if he declared. It is hard to see him falling too far. See Jake Locker.
Buffalo Bills: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
GM Buddy Nix wants a QB but the only two worth taking are gone. It would be a ChristianPonder type of reach if they drafted one here. I could see the Bills trading up for Smith ortrading down if both he and Barkley are gone. If they stay, they will draft the top WR inCordarrelle Patterson. He is loaded with talent and would be an excellent complement to StevieJohnson. WR Donald Jones was cut this season, so the Bills need a second WR.If the draft goes this way do not be surprised if the Bills take QB Ryan Nassib or, more likely, QBTyler Bray in round 2. It has been reported the Bills do not like Nassib. Bray already has somechemistry with Patterson from their days in Tennessee and has a huge arm that is needed incold Buffalo. There is no solid number 3 QB in this draft and coming off of a solid combine, Braymay have already jumped Tyler Wilson and EJ Manuel.
New York Jets: Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU
The Jets are cutting everything and everyone. OLB/DE Calvin Pace, Aaron Maybin, and BartScott are gone. The Jets are retooling their entire roster because they are way over the cap viathe Sanchez deal. They must replace the rush linebackers they cut, otherwise their defense willnot work. Ziggy Ansah is a freak prospect and would nicely, but more importantly cheaply, fillthat need. He is a top 10 prospect in the wake of his combine performance.
Tennessee Titans:
Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
The Titans want Dee Milliner, but after his performance he will not fall this far. They will thenhave to turn their attention to the second best CB in this draft in Desmond Trufant. Trufant isexperiencing what happened to CB Stephon Gilmore last year. Both started off as fringe roundone prospects due to lack of exposure but tore up their bowl games and the combine. Gilmoreended up getting drafted 10
overall in 2012 and sure enough that is where the Titans arepicking. Trufant secured his position as the second best corner in this class and would fill a needthat they have had for the last three seasons.
