In addition to free agency changing the personnel needs of each teams, some prospects’ draft stocks are also rising and falling with their pro day performances.

The draft picture looks a whole lot different after the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine than it did going in.

The projected No. 1 overall pick in last week’s mock draft, Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, was red flagged at the combine for a heart condition, which caused him to drop from the top spot. Meanwhile, the potential for West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith to take the top spot also became very unlikely when reports came forward Wednesday that the Kansas City Chiefs are trading their second-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers for quarterback Alex Smith.

How did those events, as well as all the players who made a bigger name for themselves at the combine, affect the picture in this mock draft, now less than two months away from the 2013 NFL draft? Read through the following pages to find out.
