2013 NFL Mock Draft: Senior Bowl Edition

17. Pittsburgh Steelers
Jonathan Cooper, OL, North Carolina (SCOUTING NOTES)
Cooper doesn’t get all the love that Warmack does, but he is nearly equally as talented. An interior line of Cooper, Pouncey and DeCastro would conceivably keep Ben Roethlisberger upright.

18. Dallas Cowboys
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (Scouting Notes)
Adding the physical Johnson to Tyron Smith would be a good start to rebuilding the Cowboys’ offensive line. He has really improved his game this year and is ready to contribute as a rookie.

19. New York Giants
Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Banks is a big corner that has the athleticism to stick with the outside receivers that he is going to see in the NFC East like Dez Bryant, Pierre Garcon and Jeremy Maclin.

20. Chicago Bears
Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia (SCOUTING NOTES)
If the Bears want a guy to replace the speed that Brian Urlacher used to play with, Ogletree is their guy. A former safety like Urlacher, Ogletree is still learning the finer points of linebacker, but you can’t teach the athleticism that he has.

21. Cincinnati Bengals
Kenny Vaccaro, CB/S, Texas (SCOUTING REPORT)
Vaccaro is the most versatile defensive back in this draft, being able to cover the slot, a deep half, rush the passer, and support the run from deep or in the box. Depending on how he runs at the combine, he might sneak into the top half of the first round.

22. St. Louis Rams (via WAS)
DJ Fluker, OT, Alabama (SCOUTING REPORT)
Barry Richardson was a starter last year for the Rams, Fluker would come in and win that job within the first week. A pure NFL right tackle, Fluker will maul you and is able to hold his own in pass protection with his length and strength.

23. Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings need themselves some new receiving threats. WVU’s Tavon Austin might be tempting here to potentially replace the “headache” of Percy Harvin, but Woods might be too complete of a receiver too pass up here.

24. Indianapolis Colts
Barrett Jones, OL, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
Andrew Luck needs his Jeff Saturday. Jones suffered a bad foot injury this year, but should be ready to go by the start of the 2013 season. As high as his football IQ is, he should be able to come into camp and pick up the offense without issue.

25. Seattle Seahawks
Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Brown is such a fluid athlete – he covers well and gets from sideline to sideline to support the run. Adding Brown to Bobby Wagner and KJ Wright just doesn’t seem fair.

26. Green Bay Packers
Jarvis Jones, OLB/ILB, Georgia (SCOUTING REPORT)
I think this is where Jones’ freefall stops. NFL teams are going to look at Jones’ medicals from the NFL Combine perhaps more than any other. It might take a while for one to be okay with the spinal stenosis – although he certainly has some impressive skills. Without injury concerns, he is a top 15 pick for me.

27. Houston Texans
Keenan Allen, WR, California* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Houston needs a second threat to go alongside Andre Johnson – Allen is just that sort of prospect. If he is able to stay healthy, he has a chance to be the best receiver out of the 2013 NFL Draft class.

28. Denver Broncos
Perhaps one of the most polarizing figures in the 2013 NFL Draft, Ansah is just a big ball of talent that is lacking experience playing football. He could go anywhere from the top overall pick to the start of the second round and I wouldn’t be surprised.

29. New England Patriots
Sharrif Floyd, DL, Florida (SCOUTING NOTES)
Floyd is a versatile player that can play inside and outside in the 4-3, while having the skills and frame to play end in an odd front as well. He is the complement to Wilfork that the Patriots have been looking for and should open things up for Chandler Jones and company. If Sebastian Vollmer isn’t re-signed by draft time, the Patriots could also look at a right tackle here.

30. Atlanta Falcons
Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (SCOUTING NOTES)
When Tony Gonzalez, perhaps the best tight end of all time, retires, you should probably try and replace that guy. Eifert has phenomenal hand strength and seems to have a catching radius bigger than anyone outside of Gonzalez and Gronkowksi. Either Ertz or Eifert will be the first tight end selected.

31. Baltimore Ravens
Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Ed Reed – is it time to move on from the greatest safety to play the game? If the Ravens say yes, Jefferson is the guy to try and fill and his shoes. Jefferson hits, has a ton of range, and is like a running back with the ball in his hands.

32. San Francisco 49ers
Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (SCOUTING NOTES)
Ertz and Harbaugh, back together again. Adding the huge, athletic tight end would make the diverse San Fran offense even more multiple.

    Here is what I would do for Pats offseason moves
    Pats free agents sign Vollmer,Edelman and Woodhead.
    NFL free agents Starks DT, Smith CB and Hartline WR
    all from Miami.
    Draft 1 BB takes chane on Manti Te’o
    2 Jawan Jamison RB Rutgers
    3 Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB Connecticut

  2. sid says:

    i want terrance williams in the draft i also think that marcus hunt will be available by the end of second round we also can take into acount if the patriots trade away ryan mallet they could get a late first rount pick to early second round pick so if they could get a pass rusher a widereceiver in the first 2 round we would be in perfect position to make another run at a super bowl

    • steve earle says:

      You’ll never see a high pick for Mallett at this point because he has shown nothing as yet to attract that kind of interest. As for Hunt it’s highly doubtful he would be around at the bottom of the second but it’s alright to want.

  3. BG23 says:

    Look for Arizona to pick either Chance Warmack or Eric Fisher at #7.

    The only wrench in that could be Jarvis Jones.

    They then would trade back into the late 1st if a QB they like is there.

    • russell easterbrooks says:

      OT Eric Fisher maybe the best T in the draft so Arizona takes him for sure! They could also trade with New England getting thier 1st pick (29) for the Cards 2nd pick (38) and thier 4th pick (100).

  4. harry b. says:

    The Bengals are picking Giovanni Bernard AND Montee Ball?

  5. clammy says:

    with their 2nd pick in the 2nd round, the Bengals would take Okefor, not a 2nd db this early. Also either Bernard or Ball, no way they take 2 RB’s in their first four picks

  6. Russell Easterbrooks says:

    I don’t see Sharrif Floyd being on the board when ever the Pats get thier 1st pick considering a trade. A guy who my be is Datone Jones, DE/DT at 6’4″ 280. This guys stock is moving up the draft board from a 4th rounder. Very strong guy,smart, high motor, and has played all over the D-Line.

  7. Jay says:

    Don’t see anyway possible that the Dolphins use their first two picks on WRs especially if they acquire one in FA(Jennings, Bowe, or Wallace). Patterson is a bit overrated to me and it’ll show at the combine in my opinion. It’ll probably go
    1. CB
    2. WR
    2a. DE
    3. OT
    3a. TE
    I do like Stedman Bailey in the 2nd though.

  8. 2.0 says:

    I certainly hope the Patriots don’t go this way. These selections are horrible. Aaron Dobson over all the other receivers in this draft? Micah Hyde over other dbs? Those are both Tavon Wilson-esque picks. Sadly that means they’re possible but hopefully not as neither of those guys are very good players.

  9. Nick says:

    SD also just spent a early round pick last year on a TE. Do you really think they’ll use another early pick on another TE? However they do need someone to play along side Weddle. If TJ McDonald is somehow there in the mid 3rd I think he’ll follow in his fathers footsteps to the Chargers. Weedle and McDonald would be a great pair

    1. Fisher
    2. Hunt
    3. McDonald
    4. Robey (back to back USC)
    5. Uzzi
    6. Honey Badger
    7. best RB available

  10. Nick says:

    Chargers take Blaine Gabbert 11 in the 2nd, hell no! I can see them taking a flyer on a QB later but Rivers is a top notch QB who needs to trust a line. Which is what the Chargers will build through the 1st few rounds. I just don’t get the hype on strong arm QB’s who can’t throw. He struggled terrible day one of senior bowl practice and I just don’t see a team with a proven QB (granted he is struggling) taking a risk QB pick so early. Let the Jags take him. SD goes defense in round 2 and I think Margus Hunt may be their man, Okafor or if Te’o really falls that far I think they grab him to pair with Butler

  11. McTash says:

    I know teams tgend to fall overly in love with QB’s butI think the chancesof that many going that high is beyond remote. I’m not sure any of them belong in top 0 never mind top ten. Perhaps not even in 1st rd at all.

  12. qazmlpgh says:

    I would like to see Belichick double up on WRs this draft like he’s done with TE and RB in recent drafts.

    • Russell Easterbrooks says:

      Bill may do that, he has a history of taking two players for a position. Tho I think he needs TWO CB’s late.

      • steve earle says:

        No, no cb early. Question of being able to keep Talib is real concern plus after he and Dennard position is very weak. Next priority would be d-line. WR’s are down the list unless BB is foolish enough to let Welker go.

  13. Matt says:

    The Lions are not going to reach for a DL who was unable to produce on a regular basis in the Big Ten against average OL. Nobody even has him in the first round let alone the top 5. Star will not be going later then the 6th pick in the draft and seeing how the Eagles DL is in shambles will go their. The Lions in your scenario will trade back and take Warmack, or stay and take Mingo or Warmack or Milner. But I don’t agree with Geno going first over all it will be either Joeckel or Moore or WIlson or Star in the first spot. you can’t reall argue with Thomas in the second, but if they don’t take Milner in the first they might take a CB in the third or the best OL or OLB available.

    • Detroit 313 says:

      Detroit Lions need go down and get Byu de, get a pick or two for that second round a fs, de from msu with that exra pick on second rb out of unc then oslb, ot, wr. honey bager lsu, punter

  14. Jagsman says:

    i like the draft except the 3rd round pick. i feel thomas is alot like Marshall Newhouse of the packers which is a tweener. id go John jenkins instead because we likely need to add more talent at DT and with Bradleys scheme u need ton of big DTs.

  15. Nick says:

    Pats need to grab Margus Hunt.

    • STEVEN says:

      Im starting to think that way also Nick. Add 20-25 lbs n move him next to Wilfolk. A lesser JJ Watt. Interesting. Also, WE NEED WR’s!

      • Nick says:

        Hunt just looks like he could be an animal in the NFL. They just need to coach him up a bit. He seemed pretty versatile, lining up at DT and DE at different times. I am not really sure he even needs to add weight. He is already about 280. He also blocks a lot of field goals, so give him time, and he may start batting passes like Watt. 82 inch wingspan is pretty crazy. About the same as Watt, I think. Him, Jones, Wilfork, and Ninkovich could be pretty crazy.

    • Russell Easterbrooks says:

      Margus hunt is an interesting prospect, and if the Pats were going to a 4-3 D all the time he would be a great choice. Tho I think you will see his stock rise into the mid-first round, unless his Combine is not good, where the Pats could not get him.
      I think our D will continue to play a 3-4 look with a rusher from some where, attacking or dropping into coverage at other times.
      My guess is Bill trade’s that 1st pick, for a mid-round team’s 2nd or 3d and other choices 4th-5-6th. Bill loves to get value with his picks, last year it was trade up, this year maybe trade back and look for value. There are some GREAT players out there in th 3d round on that can contribute to the team.

      • Alex says:

        Think he could play end in the 4-3 and kick inside on passing downs, but he could be beastly (JJ Watt like) as an attacking 3-4 End

      • Nick says:

        I hope BB does not trade down. He had his best draft in years last year by trading up. I hope he just stays where he is this year. His stock could rise to mid-first round, but with the depth of pass rushers this year, I doubt it. Werner, Jordan, Mingo, Ansah, Damontre Moore, Jarvis Jones, Alex Okafor, Datonte Jones, Corey Lemonier, William Gholston, and Michael Buchanan. Probably 8-9 of those guys could go before Hunt. Dion Jordan will probably be considered the combine athlete of the year. WR’s will also be in very high demand, as there are not many good ones this year. I just hope Hunt falls to the pats. It would be so awesome.

    • steve earle says:

      I like Hunt too but rather see him as bookend to jones at lde. But by this mock I’d take Jesse Williams with our 29 then look for a cb in our 2nd. WRs can wait.
