2013 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

 1st Round (Only)


1st Overall Pick – Cleveland Browns

Robert Woods – Wide Receiver – USC

Fantastic all around receiver can make this offense a lot better right away. He would be the #1 receiver and the go to target for the QB whether it be McCoy or Weeden.


2nd Overall Pick – Minnesota Vikings

Matt Barkley – Quarterback – USC

The Christian Ponder project is done and it’s going to be confirmed that he’s a backup. Get Barkley in and he could start from Day 1.


3rd Overall Pick – Miami Dolphins

Sam Montgomery – Defensive End / Outside Linebacker – LSU

They need someone to compliment Cameron Wake. Montgomery is very versatile and very explosive giving the Dolphins two great pass rushers on the edges.


4th Overall Pick – Oakland Raiders

Tyler Bray – Quarterback – Tennessee

Carson Palmer is going to be 33 after next year and who knows how his health is and if he’s even performing. They’ll need a long-term project as Matt Leinart is not that and neither is Pryor. Bray has great size and a great arm.


5th Overall Pick – Jacksonville Jaguars

DJ Fluker – Offensive Tackle – Alabama

Fluker is freakishly athletic and is very strong. If they draft him, they could have one of the better lines in the league. They can make him start at RT and then eventually move him over to LT and move over Monroe to RT, and either make Whimper a guard or let him backup. They need all the protection if they want to go forward with Blaine Gabbert.


6th Overall Pick – Indianapolis Colts

Tyrann Mathieu – Cornerback – LSU

Mathieu is extremely physical and can play the nickel-back spot from Day 1. The nickel-back spot and the cornerback spot in general is the biggest need on the Colts.


7th Overall Pick – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

David Amerson – Cornerback – North Carolina

Questionable kids as he’s gone against weak teams, but the athleticism and the cover skills are there. He would replace Ronde Barber.


8th Overall Pick – St Louis Rams

Keenan Allen – Wide Receiver – California

Allen is the 2nd best receiver in this draft. He’s tall, strong and has great hands. He and Quick could become a good tandem down the line.


9th Overall Pick – New York Jets

Jonathan Hankins – Nose Tackle – Ohio State

Wilkerson is not coming through and the Jets need a big guy in the middle. Get a real big nose guard in there; a guy that can be the cornerstone of that D for years to come.


10th Overall Pick – Seattle Seahawks

Manti Te’o – Linebacker – Notre Dame

The best linebacker in this draft is big, strong and smart. He comes from a good school and with Barrett Ruud only being signed to a 1 year deal, they’ll take Te’o over Ruud.


11th Overall Pick – Arizona Cardinals

Landry Jones – Wide Receiver – Oklahoma

It’s hard to imagine if Kolb or Skelton will pan out. With this pick, they can have a reliable smart experienced QB that could easily win the starting job, and they can shop Kolb.


12th Overall Pick – San Diego Chargers

Star Lotulelei – Nose Tackle – Utah

Antonio Garay is old and his days are running out. Star Lotulelei is arguably the best defensive tackle in this draft, as he’s huge and explosive. Give them a “Star” in the middle for years to come.


13th Overall Pick – Tennessee Titans

Jonathan Banks – Cornerback – Mississippi State

Jason McCourty is the only proven starter there. Jonathan Banks could play the #2 spot perfectly and eventual take over the #1 spot.


14th Overall Pick – Washington Redskins

Taylor Lewan – Offensive Tackle – Michigan

A not as good Jake Long is still pretty damn good. Lewan is good all around and could be a solid left tackle down the line.


15th Overall Pick – Buffalo Bills

Ricky Wagner – Offensive Tackle – Wisconsin

Wagner is arguably better than Fluker and Lewan, because he has been apart of one of the best lines in the country. He’s a brick that cannot be moved and could become the left tackle there from day one, and move Cordy Glenn over to RT, a better place for him.


16th Overall Pick – Kansas City Chiefs

William Gholston – Defensive End – Michigan State

The Chiefs need to compliment Tamba Hali. Houston was good in the preseason, but that’s it. Gholston is like Quinton Coples where he could stop the run and rush the passer.


17th Overall Pick – Carolina Panthers

Barkevious Mingo – Defensive End – LSU

They got Andre Branch in the 2012 Draft and they already have Johnson, but they could have a nice 3 man rotation that can constantly get pressure on the QB.


18th Overall Pick – Dallas Cowboys

TJ MacDonald – Safety – USC

Jerry Jones really wanted Mark Barron this year, but he couldn’t get him. TJ MacDonald is a monster who can play both free and strong safety. Good everywhere on the field.


19th Overall Pick – New Orleans Saints

Luke Joeckel – Offensive Tackle – Texas A&M

Stithcomb is gone and they need a permanent solution at RT. Joeckel did a great job protecting Tannehill. He still has muscle to add to his frame, too.


20th Overall Pick – Philadelphia Eagles

Xavier Rhodes – Cornerback – Florida State

DRC’s future is in question, and even with the selection of Boykin, he’s a nickelback at best. Rhodes could play outside and inside.


21st Overall Pick – Houston Texans

Marquess Wilson – Wide Receiver – Washington State

They lost Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter is a better slot guy. Davier Posey ain’t got nothing on Wilson. Wilson and Johnson on the outside, with Walter and Posey rotating in the middle, could put Houston into the next level.


22nd Overall Pick – Detroit Lions

Marcus Lattimore – Running Back – South Carolina

Big concerns due to his ACL injury, but the skills are there. He’s a big strong running back who is also patient. He’s a better La’Veon Ball. He could start from Day 1 and be a force.


23rd Overall Pick – New York Giants

Jonathan Cooper – Offensive Guard – North Carolina

Cooper is one of the most experienced guards coming out of college in the last few years. They’ll need to replace Snee soon and Cooper could be that guy. Not as talented as some of the guys in recent years, but experienced like crazy and consistent.


24th Overall Pick – Pittsburgh Steelers

Jackson Jeffcoat – Defensive End – Texas

This kid could definitely rise next year. He has good speed and great size. Could become a great 3-4 DE.


25th Overall Pick – Atlanta Falcons

Tyler Eifert – Tight End – Atlanta Falcons

This is Tony Gonzalez’s last year in the NFL (99% sure) and they’ll need a successor. Why not take a young Tony Gonzalez.


26th Overall Pick – Chicago Bears

Corey Lemonier – Defensive End – Auburn

Julius Peppers is going to be 33 after next year, and doesn’t have many years left. They have the other DE spot figured out with McClellin. Now Lemonier, could become the franchise DE for years to come (after Peppers retires).


27th Overall Pick – Denver Broncos

Barrett Jones – Center / Offensive Guard / Offensive Tackle – Alabama

Very versatile kid could play anywhere on the line, which is useful since the Lions O-line is old.


28th Overall Pick – Cincinnati Bengals

Le’Veon Ball – Running Back – Michigan State

Benjarvus Green-Ellis is most likely a short term solution, which means they’ll need a long term solution at running back. Le’Veon Ball is a huge 240 pound monster who crushes people, but is surprisingly patient.


29th Overall Pick -- Green Bay Packers

Chris Faulk – Offensive Tackle – LSU

Chad Clifton is gone and who knows if Sherrod could play LT. Maybe backing up is better for Sherrod. Faulk is a consistent strong kid, who has been great thus far in his career.


30th Overall Pick – New England Patriots

Brandon Jenkins – Defensive End – Florida State

The Patriots need someone to compliment Chandler Jones and Jenkins is that guy. He’s very versatile and they could create a 2 headed DE monster.


31st Overall Pick – San Francisco 49ers

Oday Aboushi – Offensive Tackle – Virginia

They still need a RT. Anthony Davis is still horrible!! Aboushi is like Osemele and is a strong kid that is also versatile. Reminds me of Kelechi Osemele and Ben Ijalana. Perfect RT, but not LT.


32nd Overall Pick – Baltimore Ravens

Eric Reid – Safety – LSU

Ed Reed is getting old and they lost their depth with Zbikowski going to Indianapolis. Reid could provide depth for a couple of years and learn behind Reed, then finally take over. It’s going to be from one Reed (or Reid) to another.
