2013 NFL Post Combine Mock Draft: Matt






1. Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joekel, OT, Texas A&M - Personally, I think the Chiefs should just try to trade down and get some more picks. However, if they stay where they are, it's looking like Joekel will be the pick. His addition and the re-signing of Joekel would give them two franchise tackles to work with.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon - Jordan really opened some eyes at the combine. He is considered by many as the top OLB prospect. Jacksonville wants to build a powerful and fast defense, so Jordan fits the bill perfectly here.

3. Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida -The Raiders need an upgrade at just about every position on defense. They are aging and thin at DT, so this would be a wise choice. Though I don't completely agree, Floyd is getting all the attention lately, and is even considered by some as the best player in the draft.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan -  No matter who the QB will be for this team opening day, they are going to need to bring in some protection for him. Kelly will probably want to bring in one of the top offensive lineman in the draft. People have said that Fisher is challenging Joekel for best OT in the class.

5. Detroit Lions: DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama - Milliner's combine pretty much solidifies him as a top 6 pick. He's also the best player available here, so that fits Detroit's draft strategy. 

6. Cleveland Browns: Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU - Ansah is jut the kind of guy they need to put some pressure on the Quarterback.  He should be able to fit in as an outside linebacker in their new 3-4 set. 

7. Arizona Cardinals: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama - It feels weird to put a guard in the top ten, but it could happen this year. Arizona needs help on the line, Warmack is a once in a lifetime guard prospect, and the rest of the class is really weak. I don't see Warmack escaping the top 10 this season.

8. Buffalo Bills:  Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia - It seems weird to have no quarterbacks drafted until 8th overall, but that just shows how underwhelming the class is this year. The Bills would be thrilled if he fell to them in the draft. He'd win the competition between himself, Fitzpatrick, and Jackson pretty easily.

9. New York Jets: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU - Mingo had a solid combine and solidified himself as top 20 pass rusher. Now that Pace has been released, rush linebacker is an even bigger need in New York.

10. Tennessee Titans: Kenny Vacarro, S, Texas - Tennessee made a great move in signing George Wilson, but they still need another safety. Vacarro will be getting more and more attention as the draft approaches.

11. San Diego Chargers:  Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma - Johnson's impressive combine will only make his draft stock rise even higher. San Diego desperately needs help at tackle, so I don't think it's too much of a reach for them.

12. Miami Dolphins: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee - Whether Hartline is retained or not, Tannehill still needs an actual #1 receiving option. I think Patterson will be the consensus top receiver in the class by April.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State - Tampa needs a couple of corners added to their roster this season, and Banks will probably be available for them here at 13 overall. There has been plenty of people in the organization who have publicly said they would be happy with Banks as their first round selection. 

14. Carolina Panthers:  Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri - Carolina desperately needs a DT, and Richardson is the best player available. 

15. New Orleans Saints: Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M - Moore's combine was extremely disappointing, but I still think he can be a top 15 pick. If New Orleans believes he can play rush linebacker, I don't think they could pass him up at this juncture.

16. St. Louis Rams: Keenan Allen, WR, California - Whether Amendola is brought back or not, Bradford needs a legitimate #1 target who can stay healthy. Allen has all the tools to be a star in the NFL.
