NFL Mock Draft 2013: Matthew Jones

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

A versatile two-gap defensive lineman such as Williams would provide Pittsburgh with an alternative to Ziggy Hood, who looks like a bust.

18. Dallas Cowboys – OG Barrett Jones, Alabama

Dallas needs to overhaul their line with a right guard to replace Mackenzy Bernadeau, who allowed seven sacks this season.

19. New York Giants – DE Ezekiel Ansah, Brigham Young

Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell would love to replace Justin Tuck with a physical freak such as Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah.

20. Chicago Bears – OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

The Bears were evidently not satisfied with their offensive production this year; finding a left tackle should be a priority.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – DE Alex Okafor, Texas

Carlos Dunlap is a legitimate pass rusher, but Cincinnati lacks a bookend opposite him; Okafor had 12.5 sacks last season.

22. St. Louis Rams (from Redskins) – FS Eric Reid, Louisiana St.*

Starting free safety Craig Dahl was ineffective this season; the Rams need to upgrade opposite strong safety Quintin Mikell.

23. Minnesota Vikings – WR Robert Woods, Southern California*

Percy Harvin is a stud, but Minnesota has yet to replace Sidney Rice’s production at wide receiver; Woods would offer an improvement.

24. Indianapolis Colts – OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Indianapolis’ top priority this offseason should be finding linemen to protect Andrew Luck; Cooper replaces right guard Mike McGlynn.

25. Baltimore Ravens – DE Dion Jordan, Oregon

A versatile pass-rushing option such as Jordan would dramatically improve the effectiveness of Baltimore’s defensive fronts.

26. Seattle Seahawks – WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia

Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell previously coached Percy Harvin in Minnesota; Austin would be very appealing.

27. Green Bay Packers – TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame*

Tight end Jermichael Finley appears unlikely to receive his roster bonus this offseason; Eifert would offer an improvement.

28. Houston Texans – WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee*

Drafting a dangerous complimentary receiver such as Patterson may extend Andre Johnson’s career by a few more seasons.

29. San Francisco 49ers – CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida St.*

Carlos Rogers hasn’t played up to his usual standard this season; a physical zone cornerback such as Rhodes would fit well.

30. New England Patriots – DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida*

Kyle Love has been a pleasant surprise since joining New England as an undrafted free agent, but a more disruptive player would be preferable.

31. Atlanta Falcons – TE Zach Ertz, Stanford*

Tony Gonzalez appears ageless but it may be time for Atlanta to start thinking about finding a long-term replacement at tight end.

32. Denver Broncos – LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia*

The combination of Keith Brooking and Joe Mays left a lot to be desired at middle linebacker for the Broncos this season; Ogletree is incredibly athletic.

    Baltimore WILL draft Kevin Minter LB for sure.
    I look for New England to trade back thier 1st pick with a Mid-round team. Dallas? Tampa? for a 2nd, 4th and 4th in 2014.
    So the Pats will go for;
    2nd pick trade- WR DeAndre Hopkins,
    2nd Pat pick- Alvin Bailey OG
    3d Pats pick- S/CB D.J. Swearinger
    4th pick trade- LB Bruce Talyor
    5th Compensatory pick- WR Conner Vernon
    7th pick (Tampa)-Brent Russell DT
    7th Pats pick-S Brandon Bishop

  2. Ralph says:

    Joeckel and Lewan IMO are going to be perennial all-pro type tackles, you can take that to the bank. If you have a need for a Tackle, this is the year to trade up.

  3. ollie says:

    I read the other day,that Eric Reid Safety from LSU is staying in school,according to his Father…Benny Logan DT is staying also.

  4. Sean k says:

    Why would the rams draft two tackles in the first round, I get one. we have huge needs at linebackers and widerecievers.

  5. Bill Thompson says:

    Did you guys see the Florida vs South Carolina game. I heard that thier guard James Wilson looked very good against South Carolina and with all of the current Gators on the team would be an ideal pickup. What do you guys have on Wilson #66 Gators. Looks like a 2-3rd round pick rather than a 5th or 6th round pick

  6. Larry P. says:

    Why the H would u think the AZ Cards would take a QB in the 1st rd. they need help elsewhere, that”s why they’re so f***** up. Buffalo needs A Big Mobile QB which in this case is Logan Thomas, who some are calling the next Cam Newton. then Buffalo could go wr and te with the 2nd and 3rd rd. picks and then def. the rest of the draft. NE Could Definitely use some more help on def. and a few young wr’s.

  7. Eugene says:

    Pats need another DE, not a DT. Love and Wilfork are both good players. Trevor Scott and Rob Ninkovich are not.

    • generally agree but ? if a good DE will be there at around 27 besides perfer a DB in 1st and expect 2 or 3 good ones will be there. That leaves the DT for 2nd rd. But do you have a someone in mind for your DE?

  8. Mike J says:

    As a Bucs fan, I don’t think they”ll take a CB rd. 1.

  9. Henry G says:

    Michael Oher is about to be replaced soon??? That is as moronic a statement as I have ever heard!

  10. jagsr4real says:

    i get the first pick idea but if we are picking at 1 why should we take Barkley(recent USC QBs havent been doing great) over a Guy whos similiar to Cam newton. id rather go have cam newton if u know wat i mean.
