2013 NFL Mock Draft: James Christensen (12/18)

33. Kansas City Chiefs
Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia (SCOUTING NOTES)
Ogletree is a beast of an athlete that is still learning the tricks of the trade at linebacker after converting from safety. Once the light switches on, look out – he could be a steal.

34. Jacksonville Jaguars
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (Scouting Notes)
Johnson is a smooth pass blocker that could give Gabbert / Henne more time to operate.

35. Cincinnati Bengals (via OAK)
Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
Bernard would bring a dynamic to the Bengals that they just don’t have in the solid BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

36. Philadelphia Eagles
Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
Williams on the interior would be a force to be reckoned with some of the talent surrounding him.

37. Detroit Lions
Eric Reid, FS, LSU* (SCOUTING NOTES)
The Lions safety corps with Louis Delmas, Amari Spievey and company just haven’t been getting the job done. Adding the presence of Reid to the backfield would be a step in the right direction.

38. Tennessee Titans
Kevin Minter, LB, LSU (SCOUTING NOTES)
Minter is a savvy, athletic linebacker that has flown under the radar of his more media-friendly teammates. He is a football player’s football player.




39. San Diego Chargers
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee (SCOUTING NOTES)
Depth at the receiver spot is starting to thin out for Green Bay. Hunter is a big target that can get down the field and create mis-matches. The Chargers need to hit on a receiver here after so many busted picks and signings as of late.

XX. Cleveland Browns
The Browns forfeit this pick due to the supplemental draft selection of Josh Gordon

40. Buffalo Bills
Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor (SCOUTING NOTES)
Pairing the speedy and athletic Williams with Stevie Johnson and the running game might lead to something special in Buffalo – a team that strikes fear into the hearts of AFC defenses.

41. Carolina Panthers
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Rhodes isn’t a polished prospect, but his physical gifts are going to be tempting to NFL teams looking for help at cornerback.

42. Arizona Cardinals
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Mike Glennon isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but some NFL team will fall in love with him within the first fifty picks. Some nights, he looks like a first rounder – sometimes he looks like a career backup.

43. Tampa Bay Bucs
Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia (SCOUTING NOTES)
One of Geno Smith’s favorite targets, Bailey can win vertically and really stretch the field.

44. Miami Dolphins
Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
If Roby declares, Miami would be getting a young corner with loads of promise to put on the other side of Sean Smith.

XX. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have forfeited their second round pick due to the “Bountygate” scandal.

45. New York Jets
T.J. McDonald, FS, USC (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Jets have had some mild success with one year rentals like Laron Landry. McDonald brings some athleticism and a big body as well, although he isn’t true coverage safety.

46. St. Louis Rams
Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
Lacy is a violent runner with an impressive spin move. If Steven Jackson is done in St. Louis, Lacy would be a great fit here.

47. Pittsburgh Steelers
Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
The Steelers have the best pass defense in the league, but adding Poyer would give their backfield some youth and athleticism.

48. Dallas Cowboys
Cordarelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee (SCOUTING NOTES)
Patterson has the size, speed and athleticism that the NFL craves. He isn’t a polished receiver at this point, but that hasn’t stopped Dallas in the past.

    Watched and ah last night against San Diego State. He showed me zero. Did’nt see any push or intensity. Looked like he was pacing himself.

  2. Brian says:

    I would jump for joy if we drafted Ziggy Ansah. He is the player I want most out of this draft and pray that he falls to us.

  3. Russ N. says:

    Love the Ansah pick. He looks good as both an OLB and a 4-3 DE, so it would allow BB even more versatility to dial up pressure. Between Ninkovich, Jones, and Ansah they would have a few good pass rushers to couple with an improving secondary.

    And Kawann Short would create a very stout interior for the Pats. Wilfork is obviously the best there is, and Love is good and improving, but once they get off the field for rest, there’s a huge drop off. Deaderick has played well the last few weeks, but beyond him it’s pretty much scrubs. After the Niners did some damage running up the middle this week, DT is definitely a position of need. Would have been nice if Fanene worked out in the offseason, but Short would definitely add a good body to the mix.

    I’d be absolutely thrilled if the draft ended up that way. Two more young, talented players to add to an improving defense? What more can you ask for?

  4. Jagsman says:

    i cant see the Jags passing up Rhodes or Jesse Williams to take an OT. Rhodes makes alot of sense given the fact that Mathis, middleton are bad cbs as well as Ross. Cox who i think the jags keep is injury prone but is a FA as well as Middleton and mathis.

    our DT spot is interesting because we could really use a DT to shore the run defense up some and williams should be an improvement over mosley.

    • td says:

      who the heck is going to play QB? Gabbert is terrible and Henne so-so. The lack of an NFL QB is going to cost your coach and/or assistants their jobs.

      • Jagsman says:

        Henne or Gabbert is going to play qb.

        sure RT could be an issue but its definitely not as bad as CB or DT.
