#NFLDraft 2013: Full Mock Draft


Fans of terrible teams have made it to their own personal Superbowl - the draft!  With the draft finally upon us (April 25th in primetime), ViralRead has put together a full first round mock draft.


1. Kansas City Chiefs - LT, Eric Fisher, Central Michigan  - Reports out of KC today say KC likes his “meanness.” I have no idea what that means but apparently it differentiates him from Joeckel.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars - OLB, Dion Jordan, Oregon - “The Praying Mantis” gives Jacksonville an athletic pass rusher
3. Oakland Raiders - LT, Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M - Reggie McKenzie WILL trade out of this spot. Look for him to switch the Lions and trade back to 5. The Lions will jump all over Joeckel who has 1st overall pick talent.
4. Philadelphia Eagles - WR, Tavon Austin, West Virginia - The Eagles have been awful in the draft the past few years. Look for that tradition to continue if they fall in love with the speed of Austin who they view as a future Desean Jackson replacement.
5. Detroit Lions - DT, Shariff Floyd, Florida - The Raiders will end up picking in this spot and they’ll get a choice between Floyd or Lotulelei.
6. Cleveland Browns - OLB, Barkevious Mingo, LSU - Adding Mingo and Kruger in an offseason isn’t that bad for the Browns. The roster still has a longgg way to go.
7. Arizona Cardinals - DE, Ziggy Ansah, BYU - The Cardinals D needs a pass rusher desperately and they’ll hope Ansah can develop into a legit end.
8. Buffalo Bills - QB, Landry Jones, Oklahoma - Wait what!?!?! First huge shocker of the draft. Bills love Jones over Geno (who the Bills new Cuse rooted coaching staff dominated) and Nassib (who they weren’t thrilled with at Cuse). If they don’t reach for Jones here look for them to trade down and target him later. If I get this right and Peter King gets this wrong how pathetic is that… seriously think about it.
9. New York Jets - OLB, Jarvis Jones, Georgia - At one point this year talked about as the #1 pick. Sexy Rexy loves pass rushers and won’t be able to resist the talented Jones.
10. Tennessee Titans - LT, Lane Johnson, Oklahoma - Titans should take the best player on their board, which at this point should be Johnson.
11. San Diego Chargers - RT, DJ Fluker, Alabama - The Chargers line sucks. Fluker will help the development of Ryan Mathews tremendously.
12. Miami Dolphins - CB, DJ Hayden, Houston - Dolphins get a potential shutdown corner.
13. New York Jets - WR, DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson - Jets need a playmaker. Bad. Really really bad.
(from Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
14. Carolina Panthers -  DT,  Star Lotulelei, Utah - Shariff Floyd could also go in this slot, it really depends on who the Raiders take. The Panthers should be able to get a decent player in this spot.
15.New Orleans Saints - CB, Xavier Rhodes, Florida State - Rob Ryan now has control of the defense. One of the most overrated defensive coordinators in the game (check out the numbers on his pass defenses) gets a legit corner talent in Rhodes.
16. St. Louis Rams - OG, Jonathan Cooper, UNC - A guard has no business being taken this early but everyone seems to love Cooper.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers - TE, Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame - Heath Miller is getting old and Eifert would make a great replacement. Eifert just looks like a Steeler.
18. Dallas Cowboys - DT, Sheldon Richardson, Missouri - 104 year old Monte Kiffin is turning the Dallas D into a 4-3. He needs good interior DTs to do that and Richardson is a start.
19. New York Giants - G, Chance Warmack, Alabama - Jerry Reese is a believer in “take the best player available.” The Giants’ could use more depth on the o-line and even though it’s still too early to take a guard, they could do worse than Warmack. (Taking T’eo would be horrible here)
20. Chicago Bears - LB, Arthur Brown, Kansas State - With Urlacher gone the Bears have a logical replacement in Brown.
21. Cincinnati Bengals - S, Kenny Vaccaro, Texas - Pair Vaccaro with nutjob Pacman Jones and Leon Hall and you’ve got yourself a hell of a secondary.
22. St. Louis Rams - WR, Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee - Gives Bradford a legitimate receiver that he’s wanted for so long.
(from Washington Redskins)
23. Minnesota Vikings - LB, Manti T’eo, Notre Dame - The Vikings have shown the most interest in T’eo and need a linebacker. The Catfished one should be a solid but not spectacular player.
24. Indianapolis Colts - S, Johnathan Cyprien, Florida International - Colts secondary needs help and Cyprien has loads of potential.
25. Minnesota Vikings - CB, Dee Milliner, Alabama - Would have gone higher but now has injury concerns with his shoulder. Could be a great pick if he’s healthy.
(from Seattle Seahawks)
26. Green Bay Packers - LT, Menelik Watson, Florida State - Aaron Rodgers needs an offensive line bad. The Packers line was embarrassing last year and hopefully Watson can help.
27. Houston Texans - WR, Keenan Allen, Cal - Houston needs another option in the passing game besides Andre Johnson. Johnson is also 32 years old now and won’t last forever.
28. Denver Broncos - RB, Jonathan Franklin, UCLA - Moreno played well at the end of last year but could use help. Franklin makes sense for the Broncos.
29. New England Patriots - LB, Datone Jones, UCLA - They could use a pass rusher but who knows what they’re thinking.
30. Atlanta Falcons - CB, Jamar Taylor, Boise State - The Falcons lost Brent Grimes to Miami and could use a replacement.
31. San Francisco 49ers - DL, Jesse Williams, Alabama - Great fit at Nose Tackle for the 49ers.
32. Baltimore Ravens - DE, Bjoern Werner, Florida State - Lost Kruger? No problem for the defending champs as they can pick up Werner who is probably already better.

So there you have it, ViralRead’s 2013 NFL Mock Draft. With no clear cut 1st overall pick this could get very interesting. Enjoy the draft everyone!
