September 10th Mock Draft (Matthew Jones)

17. St. Louis Rams (from Redskins) – DB Ha’sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama*

The cornerback position has been addressed, but the Rams still lack quality options at safety.

18. Chicago Bears – OT James Hurst, North Carolina

Kyle Long will probably remain at right guard, which makes right tackle a priority this offseason.

19. Indianapolis Colts – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson*

Reggie Wayne is aging, and Darrius Heyward-Bey is not a capable number one option at receiver.

20. Dallas Cowboys – DE Aaron Lynch, South Florida*

Franchise player Anthony Spencer may not be a member of the Cowboys beyond this season.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – LB Khalil Mack, Buffalo

Adding the disruptive Mack as the eventual successor to James Harrison makes sense here.

22. Baltimore Ravens – WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt

The tall, strong, physical Matthews would make sense as a replacement for Anquan Boldin.

23. New York Giants – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon*

Corey Webster, Aaron Ross, and Jayron Hosley struggled in ’12; Terrell Thomas was hurt again.

24. New Orleans Saints – LB Kyle Van Noy, Brigham Young

Even when healthy, Will Smith may not possess the athleticism to stand up in the 3-4 defense.

25. Pittsburgh Steelers – TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington*

Heath Miller will turn 31 this October and is still recovering from a serious knee injury.

26. Atlanta Falcons – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida St.*

Starter Corey Peters is among the weak links on Atlanta’s defense, clearing the way for Jernigan.

27. Houston Texans – DT Daniel McCullers, Tennessee

Despite his size, McCullers is also disruptive enough against the pass to fit Wade Phillips’ defense.

28. Seattle Seahawks – OG Gabe Jackson, Mississippi St.

Seattle’s otherwise-loaded roster is uneven at best along the offensive line and lands a great value.

29. Green Bay Packers – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina*

Perennially-underwhelming tight end Jermichael Finley could be made expendable by Ebron.

30. New England Patriots – DE Kareem Martin, North Carolina

At 6’5” and 265 pounds, Martin possesses the size New England covets in their front seven.

31. San Francisco 49ers – CB Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida*

Purifoy has the size and athleticism to intrigue as a developmental press-man cornerback.

32. Denver Broncos – DT Anthony Johnson, Louisiana St.*

Johnson would fit well as a three-technique next to 2013 first-round pick Sylvester Williams.

    What happened to the Rams second 1st round pick???

  4. Tom says:

    This mock is terrible…..the Jags won’t pass on Bridgewater and the Redskins pick belongs to the Rams.

    • Trevor M. says:

      You do realize this mock is based on one person’s opinions and is about ~9 months early? Give him a break.

    the hoodie would have to be insane to pass over purifoy at the end of the first, if he`s available. just my 2c.

    A first round mock draft with Tajh Boyd not being selected?? Face palm.

    • MatthewJones says:

      I’d be careful about locking anyone into the first round at this point. Many people thought guys like Matt Barkley, Tyler Wilson, Landry Jones, Nick Foles, Ryan Mallett, Jimmy Clausen, Brian Brohm, and even Andre’ Woodson and Omar Jacobs were first-round picks heading into their final collegiate seasons. Another factor which contributed to Boyd’s absence was the fact that many teams have recently invested highly in a quarterback. Maybe a team like Cleveland or Tennessee could look for a new passer if they’re picking that high, but Boyd would be a substantial reach at that point in my opinion.

    definitely an original mock that doesnt got teddy at 1 :)
