Now that both the Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine games have wrapped up, the first phase of the NFL draft preseason has passed. Overlooked and underrated players are making waves, while some of college football's household names are fading fast.
Reports have been trickling in over the past week from analysts, scouts and GMs, shining small rays of light through the haze that is the pre-draft evaluation period. With the combine less than a month away and the final draft order a Super Bowl away from being set, now is as good a time as any to take a stab at the big picture.
Yep, a full 7-round mock draft, including projected compensatory picks and an ideal undrafted free-agent pickup for each team thrown in for good measure.
Let's get started.
The new Chiefs brass claims, according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star, the team will draft the best player available with the first overall pick this April—a statement that, if genuine, means that Geno Smith won’t be the guy. Considering the relative weakness of this year’s quarterback class, the Chiefs can probably afford to wait until the second round to grab a signal-caller.
Luke Joeckel, the true best prospect in the draft, could either replace Branden Albert if the Chiefs don’t retain him or pair with Albert as arguably the best offensive-line bookends in the NFL.
Everyone knows the Jaguars’ quarterback situation is a mess, but the team’s plans regarding its most glaring weakness are murky at best. Rather than delve into all of the conflicting reports, I’ll just assess the situation myself. Blaine Gabbert is a sissy. Chad Henne is a solid NFL backup, but not a franchise quarterback.
New regimes have no loyalty to inherited players, and new GM David Caldwell likely won’t want to bet all his chips on any of the quarterbacks currently on roster. The consensus is that the Jags will go defense here, but both defensive end and linebacker are deeper this year than quarterback. As draft day approaches, Geno Smith will start looking better and better.
The Raiders could stand to upgrade most positions on the roster, but getting to the quarterback has to be their priority at this point. The good news is that anyone they draft here will be an upgrade to their current personnel. Star Lotulelei’s size and explosiveness will be mightily appealing as a replacement for the flat-footed loads currently on the roster. Similarly, Jarvis Jones will be coveted for his combination of speed, strength and athleticism.
Given the choice, however, the Raiders will likely opt for a defensive end who can get after the quarterback in a hurry. Both Bjoern Werner and Damontre Moore would fit the bill nicely, but expect the Raiders to go with the latter thanks to his ferocious style of play and high motor.
Though nothing official has been announced, all indications are that the Eagles are moving to a 3-4 scheme—a somewhat dubious decision given the personnel currently on the defensive side of the ball. Admittedly, Fletcher Cox and Cullen Jenkins are well-suited to the 5-technique, but Trent Cole and Brandon Graham don’t project as ideal rush linebackers.
Still, the most glaring need in the Eagles’ future 3-4 is at nose tackle where the team is totally devoid of a starting-caliber player. Assuming Lotulelei lasts this far, he has to be the pick. He has the size and strength to stand up blockers while also possessing a smaller player’s ability to get into the backfield.
A no-brainer if he’s available.
The Lions are known for strictly adhering to the "best player available" strategy. Some think they may abandon that this year and grab Alabama defensive back Dee Milliner with the fifth pick given the continued sad-sack state of their secondary. Louis Delmas can’t stay healthy, Amari Spievey is mostly a liability, and rookie Bill Bentley had a rough debut campaign.
However, as the best player available at this point, Bjoern Werner also fits a glaring need.
Cliff Avril underperformed this year after receiving the franchise tag, while Kyle Vanden Bosch is all but done. If both Moore and Werner are gone when the Lions’ turn comes up, Milliner might very well be the guy. If one of these elite defensive end prospects is available, though, they will be the pick.
With their switch to a 3-4, the Browns have given themselves more options in the draft. They were always in need of a pass-rusher, but their scheme change means players like Jarvis Jones and Barkevious Mingo won't be such risky picks.
A lot of consideration will be given to both Mingo and Ezekiel Ansah here (assuming Werner and Moore are off the board), but Jones is a steal at this point and the Browns will see that. Jones led the nation in sacks this year, yet also possesses good coverage skills for a rush linebacker. He's too good to pass up.
I'm of the opinion that Kevin Kolb is a legitimate NFL starter; problem is, he can't stay healthy. New head coaches often mean new quarterbacks, and nobody is going to argue that the Cardinals don't need one. They also need a new offensive line, however. After blowing up the Senior Bowl, Eric Fisher is going to look mighty pretty sitting here at seven.
But at the end of the day, the Cardinals will not want to leave the draft without a top-tier quarterback. With the recent trend to overdraft the position, the Cardinals might not want to wait until Round 2.
Ryan Nassib's stock is all over the place. Some say he's a surefire first-rounder with the most consistent arm of the bunch, while others claim he is a mid-round prospect who struggles to drive the ball.
Two things are for sure: the Bills need a quarterback, and the hiring of Syracuse's head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett bodes well for Nassib's chance to go eighth overall. I say, why not? Already knowing the system he is entering into will provide Nassib a huge head start on other rookie quarterbacks, and aside from Geno Smith, no one has proved that they are definitively better than Nassib.
This is a gamble I like.
The Jets desperately need a new offense. That means, a new quarterback, a No. 1 receiver and a new running back, for starters. New GM John Idzik isn't likely to screw this up, however. Sanchez's insane extension means he will be in New York in 2013. There's no reason to reach for a quarterback here when next year's crop promises to be far superior.
Instead, expect Idzik to let Sanchez have the year to prove himself. If he doesn't, they move on then. For now, the team needs to improve its defense, starting with a pass-rusher. Mingo has unlimited potential and fits nicely into Rex Ryan's hybrid scheme.
Alterraun Verner is set to become a free agent after the 2013 season. He may want a big contract, and the Titans need to be sure whether they want to re-sign him at that point.
Alabama's Dee Milliner could come in and immediately improve the Titans secondary while also giving the team options come next offseason. The team could go with Chance Warmack here to help shore up their anemic offensive line, but Milliner may prove too appealing to pass on at 10.
The Chargers will be ecstatic if Eric Fisher falls to them here. San Diego has to address its offensive line, with both of their tackles proving to be liabilities. With Taylor Lewan and Jake Matthews returning to school, Fisher was already rising. After a dominant Senior Bowl, he may be out of reach.
If not, the Chargers have to snatch him up. He would be an immediate starter on San Diego's line, with the added upside to become truly dominant at the position. He'd also have a new best friend in Philip Rivers.
The Dolphins are loaded when it comes to picks. Specifically, they have five of the first 84. They could go a lot of different ways, but Keenan Allen is their best bet at this point.
The team's other positions of need are either less glaring (defensive line) or aren't worth the same value as a receiver here (secondary). Pairing Allen on the outside with Brian Hartline would allow Davone Bess to move to the slot where he belongs and would give Ryan Tannehill a legitimate weapon for the long term.
The Buccaneers have little choice but to address the secondary here. I wouldn't be surprised to see them go with Xavier Rhodes or Kenny Vaccaro if both Milliner and Johnthan Banks were off the board, but I believe Banks will be available.
Banks is a three-year starter in the SEC, a cover corner who has very few knocks against him. Reports trickling out of the Senior Bowl suggest the Bucs are already sold on Banks, so expect him to be the guy if he's available.
The Panthers started out the season pathetically, but Cam Newton got his swag back at the end of the year and the team started to win. There's no doubt Newton needs more weapons, but the Panthers' late-season success may provide the defensive-minded Ron Rivera the wiggle room to address the mess that is their defensive tackle situation.
Johnathan Hankins would be an instant upgrade to the team's current personnel, and while he isn't the flashiest player the Panthers could go after, he'd likely have the biggest immediate impact of the available prospects.
The Saints defense was a travesty in 2012. Coaches are hoping this can change with the switch to a 3-4 scheme in 2013. The team's current personnel actually projects well, with one exception—rush linebacker. Martez Wilson is theoretically a good fit, but is unproven. Junior Galette is a nice rotational player, but shouldn't be starting.
Despite his pre-draft surgery, Dion Jordan will likely continue to impress in the lead up to April. He is an ideal 3-4 linebacker—a 245-pound, 6'7" specimen with good strength and 4.6 speed.
The Rams need multiple upgrades to their offensive line, most notably at left guard and right tackle. Lane Johnson could be the pick here; a scenario that would either find him playing right tackle or seeing Roger Saffold move to left guard.
For the value, however, Chance Warmack is a can't-miss prospect. He is the top guard available, and maybe the best guard prospect in over a decade. Possessing three of the first 47 picks allows the Rams to go with the legitimate best player on the board, a top-10 prospect who will be a starter from day one and do his best to finally keep Sam Bradford off the turf.
The Steelers defense needs multiple upgrades including an inside linebacker, a rush linebacker, a 5-technique end and a safety. The best value of those choices is Sheldon Richardson, an ideal 3-4 defensive end.
After a breakout season, Richardson's stock is on the rise, but there's always hesitance concerning one-year wonders. This should allow him to last long enough for the Steelers to snap him up as a long-term replacement for the ineffective Ziggy Hood. Pairing Richardson with Cameron Heyward would go a long way in providing hope to an aging defense.
Going against the grain this offseason are the Cowboys, who are switching to a 4-3 scheme under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. While the linebacking corps is set, Anthony Spencer likely won't be back in Dallas next year, meaning Jerry Jones needs to find a complement for DeMarcus Ware.
Ezekiel Ansah is a raw prospect with Jason Pierre-Paul levels of upside that Jones will love. It's not unlikely that Ansah will rise beyond 18 come April, but his lack of polish may keep him out of the top 15. Jones would be ecstatic.
Te'o's stock will have suffered more due to his weak coverage skills than his fake girlfriend by the time April rolls around. The Giants, desperately (and vocally, according to ESPN.com via SBNation) in need of linebacking help, will bite.
Manti Te'o would fit in nicely in New York, playing behind a solid front four. The Giants' style of play lends itself to a downhill middle linebacker more than most teams in the NFL. If Chase Blackburn (a free agent this offseason) can be the team's top linebacker in 2012, there's no reason Te'o couldn't be that in 2013.
This is a no-brainer. The Bears offensive line is terrible. Phil Emery criticized the line's production during his press conference earlier this month, and all of the coaches who were invested in the J'Marcus Webb experiment are gone. If Lane Johnson is on the board, he has to be the pick.
Johnson is a lean, athletic tackle (and former quarterback and tight end) with quick feet and good strength. He could immediately step in at starter, allowing Webb to slide over to right tackle and Gabe Carimi to jump in at left guard. Pair those three with Lance Louis at right guard and Roberto Garza at center, and the Bears line is already looking much improved.
The Bengals have three of the top 55 picks in the draft, meaning they have options. This is too early to address their running back need, so look for the Bengals to continue adding pieces to their defense. A linebacker or defensive end could be the pick here, but both are deeper positions than the safety class this year.
Kenny Vaccaro is the best safety in the draft, and he has the flexibility to play either a run-stuffing strong safety or a roving free safety. The Bengals' deep secondary is a mess, but Vaccaro would go a long way to fixing it.
There's no doubt Sam Bradford still needs weapons, but don't expect the Rams to go receiver with either of their first-round picks. Brian Quick is still a work in progress, but Chris Givens was a nice surprise in his rookie campaign and Danny Amendola is underrated when healthy.
Instead, look for the Rams to add a dynamic receiver in Tyler Eifert. Lance Kendricks has been disappointing thus far, relegated primarily to H-back while also lining up in two tight end sets. Eifert would open up the outside receivers by providing the team a much-needed weapon over the middle of the field.
The Vikings are fortunate this year. Their biggest needs—receiver, defensive tackle, cornerback—are some of the most top-heavy positions in the 2013 draft. The offense has to take priority here, though, as the Vikings need playmakers to ease the load Adrian Peterson carried all year.
Cordarrelle Patterson has arguably the highest upside of any receiver in the draft, and his combination of speed and size would be utilized early and often on the outside.
Jesse Williams is an ideal fit for the Indianapolis Colts at 24. Like Star Lotulelei, Williams has the size and strength to play nose tackle in the Colts' 3-4, while also possessing the explosiveness and surprising agility to play on the outside of the line.
Williams would provide flexibility for a Colts defense that seriously overachieved last year. The entire defensive line could use a makeover, and Williams provides the team options.
After a down season, some might consider this a bit of a reach. The Seahawks don't care what you think. John Schneider and Pete Carroll draft players who are the best at what they do, not necessarily the most well-rounded players. For instance, Bruce Irvin is a pass-rusher, not a run-stuffer, and that is exactly how they (successfully) used him this year.
D.J. Fluker is a massive-bodied right tackle who can run block for days. Breno Giacomini can't do much. A no-brainer, right? We'll see if Schneider and Carroll agree.
It's true that the Packers' pass-rush was abysmal last season, but their priority has to be keeping Aaron Rodgers upright. Josh Sitton and Bryan Bulaga are outstanding players, while T.J. Lang is a serviceable starter. The Packers are likely still holding out hope for the brittle-bodied Derek Sherrod.
The entire offensive line was in shambles last year thanks to unfortunate injuries, but a center is desperately needed either way. Jeff Saturday was benched in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith, but neither should be starting. Jonathan Cooper is a godsend for the Packers at 26. He possesses the perfect combination of strength, agility and technique, and his play has been universally recognized.
The Texans desperately need more playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. Andre Johnson will be 32 when the 2013 season begins, while the team's strategy to overdraft late-round prospects in the third (DeVier Posey) and fourth (Keshawn Martin) rounds last year didn't pan out so well.
Tavon Austin would provide a dynamic option in the passing game, serving as a Welker-esque slot receiver and opening up space for Posey to develop on the outside. Fans should revolt if the Texans pass up a receiver in the first two rounds again.
Despite the shoddy secondary play in the playoffs this year, the Broncos have to address the defensive tackle position. Despite the best efforts of Von Miller, the Broncos' soft play in the middle was a gift to opposing quarterbacks and put undue pressure on the secondary.
John Jenkins follows the motif this year of big-bodied defensive tackles who possess deceptive quickness and an ability to shed blocks and get into the backfield. The Broncos need two new starters at D-tackle next year; Jenkins' sheer mass constitutes a player and a half.
It's tough to tell whether Welker is regressing or truly and inexplicably being phased out of the offense. Whichever the case, neither he nor Brandon Lloyd are getting any younger, and Julian Edelman is unproven as a long-term starter (and is a free agent).
Terrance Williams is a Lloyd-like receiver with decent size, deceptive speed and crisp route-running. He, more than most other top receivers in this draft, would fit nicely into New England's offensive schemes.
Truth be told, the Falcons could use two new defensive ends this offseason. Despite a solid year, John Abraham is getting older and more fragile by the day, while Ray Edwards was cut midseason. Kroy Biermann is a rotational lineman only.
The pick could be Sam Montgomery here, but Alex Okafor is going to keep rising throughout the draft process. He is a high-motor player who will interview well and whose character won't be questioned. He might not have the upside of a player like Montgomery, but he is the safer pick.
If Ogletree falls this far, the Ravens have to scoop him up. He led the Bulldogs in tackles this year, despite not playing in the first four games of the season, and he might be the most purely athletic player in the draft.
With the news of Ray Lewis' retirement, the time for a replacement is now. Dannell Ellerbe could be the other starter next year as he was phenomenal in relief of Lewis this year and has continued to impress in the playoffs. Whatever the team's plans for him, however, depth is still needed in the middle, and Ogletree's value is too good to pass up here.
The 49ers are in an enviable position this year. Not only are they playing for a Super Bowl in a week's time, but they also have 11 guaranteed picks in the upcoming draft (and a likely compensatory pick as well). They can afford to truly go after the best player available with each and every pick if they want.
Arguably, the best player available who fits a need is Xavier Rhodes. The 49ers have few real weaknesses, but Carlos Rogers' play regressed this year, and the secondary in general could use an infusion of youth. Rhodes is a big, strong corner who would fit nicely in Jim Harbaugh's system.
