2013 Senior Bowl: Mock Draft

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
Franklin was the best running back in Mobile displaying a complete game that translates to the NFL. He also showed very good hands and big play ability.

18. Dallas Cowboys - Justin Pugh, OL, Syracuse
Pugh was overshadow by Fisher and Johnson, but Pugh performed solidly throughout the week. His height and lack of arm length is a bit disappointing, but it didn’t effect him in college and it didn’t really effect him this week. Pugh played some guard this week and that versatility will only help him.

19. New York Giants – Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State
McFadden pulled out half way through the week, but I thought he was the best corner on the South side. He’s got very good hips and makes explosive breaks on the ball. He can play slot or outside corner and while he is only 5’9″ but he’s competitive and aggressive for his size.

20. Chicago Bears - Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
Harper really turned heads down here, with his combination power and speed. He got off the jam better than any receiver down here and was attacking the ball. At 6′ 228 he runs very well for his size and is able to get open with physicality and power moves.

21. Cincinnati Bengals - Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
Short wasn’t flashy this week, but he showed great athleticism and and power during one on one drills. From my vantage point he won most of his battles. Short has a lot of versatility playing NT, 3Tech and 3-4 End.

22. Washington Redskins (via StL) – Marquise Goodwin, WR, Texas
Goodwin was turning heads with his unbelievable speed. He was running really smooth and precise routes and seperating out of them. He’s only 179 pounds, but was easily the most fluid and agile prospects on both teams. In Washington Goodwin can provide another vertical threat for RG3 to hit.

23. Minnesota Vikings - John Jenkins, DT, Georgia
Jenkins is a massive human being moves well for his frame and displays quickness off the ball. I think he can play 4-3 DT as well as the nose and showed good hustle throughout the week.

24. Indianapolis Colts - Ezekial Ansah, DE, BYU
Ansah didn’t have a great week down here, he didn’t have much success pass rushing and wasn’t able to get off blocks. He didn’t have a power rush move and once he was engaged with the OT he couldn’t disengage. I’m taking into account his raw ability here when putting him into the mock.

25. Seattle Seahawks – Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, UConn
Big corner, who didn’t stand out for the good or bad this week. He played undercontrol and displayed good technique. In this mock it just happens to be a perfect fit for the Seahawks big secondary.

26. Green Bay Packers – Lavar Edwards, DE, LSU
Edwards was the best DE performer down here in Mobile. He has incredibly long arms and was the most fluid pass rusher in drills. Edwards was overshadowed during his season, but this was a chance to see him isolated and he stood out.

27. Houston Texans – BW Webb, CB, William & Mary
Webb is another player who got better with each practice. On day four he was extremely aggressive, fighting for space in the red zone and making aggressive plays on the ball. He seemed to absorb coaching well as the Lions DB coach seemed to take a liking to him.

28. Denver Broncos - Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
After Franklin, Gillislee was the most consitent performer in Mobile. He combines good burst through the hole, with good patience and vision. Gillislee also broke a number of tackles in practice this week.

29. New England Patriots - TJ McDonald, S, USC
McDonald had a very good week playing a more traditional safety position. He was able to cover the TE well and was a more physical run defender. He has very good size and is probably the best athlete out of all the safeties in Mobile.

30. Atlanta Falcons – Brian Winters, OG, Kent State
Winters was what I expected this week and that is a mean SOB who uses his hands well and will compete on every play. He played LT at Kent State, but is absolutely limited to guard at the NFL and I think he can be a starter from day one.

31. Baltimore Ravens – Shawn Williams, S Georgia
Williams was a physical presence in the run game this week. He struggled to turn and run with the vertical receiver and might be limited coverage wise. But, as an in the box run support safety, he is one of the best in the class.

32. San Francisco 49ers – Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina
Williams is a penetrating DT who possesses good rush moves and a quick first step. He plays aggressive and with quickness. He won one of the practice player of the week awards in Mobile.

    I like TE Mychal Rivera at 6’3 237 runs a 4.79 ,with 10.27 inch hands! I think he could be a slot guy with some work, playing like Hernadez for the Pats. Very good value in the (projected) 7th round. This guy has great intangables, high IQ, work ethic, etc. a BB type guy.

    Trufant is Bigger, Stronger, and Faster than Poyer

  3. James says:

    The caption says that Trufant had a good Senior Bowl… I’m confused, isn’t the Senior Bowl today at 4pm???

  4. Russell Easterbrooks says:

    Anyone wanting to see tape on DE/T Armond Armstead look at “2012 CFL all-star highlight video” !!!!

  5. Russell Easterbrooks says:

    Interesting Mock Mike! I would love to see OG/T Brain Winters at RG for New England ! I have projected him to NE if the right draft pick trade works out. (2nd round pick). I also have CB Jorden Poyer going to NE. After a trade to a mid-round team, Pats 1st pick , for a 2nd, 4th, and 4th next year.
    2nd from trade- CB Jorden Poyer or DE Donte Jones
    2nd Pats——— OG/T Brain Winters or OG Alvin Bailey
    3d Pats ——– DE/LB John Simon
    4th from trade- S/LB DeVonte Holloman
    7th From Tampa- CB Demetrius McCray
    7th Pats——–OG/T Matt Summers-Gavin

      I also like WR Conner Vernon, If a pick around 4thor5th is traded for, this would depend if Welker and Edleman are resigned, as to need.
