NFL draft prognostication is based largely in conjecture and deductive reasoning. We don’t know what will happen when the selections begin on April 25, but there’s still a lot of value in analyzing team needs and expected draft positioning.
First-round mock drafts are the norm leading up to the draft, but we’re going beyond that with the draft now just over a week away. With complete draft projections, we’ll try to provide a better understanding of team needs and prospects’ potential value.
The following mock draft focuses on the first round with explanations for each pick, moving on to a complete overview of all 254 selections (including compensatory picks). Read on for a full outlook of your team’s potential draft strategy.
1. Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
There’s little reason to believe the Chiefs will go in another direction here. They cemented several positions in free agency and don’t have many glaring needs to address. Luke Joeckel is the best player available and he’s most likely to be the first player selected in next week’s draft.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
David Caldwell’s selection is a difficult one to peg, but this makes a lot of sense. Dion Jordan has the versatility to play several positions on the defensive front, most notably in Gus Bradley’s Leo role.
3. Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
Reggie McKenzie can’t afford to miss with this pick. Given the lack of truly elite talent in this draft class, taking the safe route in selecting Sharrif Floyd is the smart choice. Floyd is a tremendous interior pass-rusher with the size, strength and explosiveness to be a nightmare in a one-gap scheme.
4. Philadelphia Eagles: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
The Eagles could look to address some needs at offensive tackle or cornerback here, but Utah’s Star Loutlelei presents the most value at No. 4. With Philadelphia transitioning to a 3-4 under Billy Davis, finding a prototypical two-gap defensive lineman like Lotulelei has to be a priority.
5. Detroit Lions: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
Jeff Backus retired and Gosder Cherilus signed with Indianapolis in free agency. If Martin Mayhew hopes to protect his franchise quarterback, he’ll need to fill those positions early in the draft. Defensive end and cornerback are big needs, but they can wait until Day 2.
6. Cleveland Browns: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
The Browns have a coveted pick in this draft. With the top two offensive tackles off the board, several teams are going to be interested in moving up to No. 6 for Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson.
Because trades are nearly impossible to predict, we’ll keep this pick simple. Cleveland already addressed its pass-rushing needs in free agency, and cornerback becomes the next biggest priority. Dee Milliner would be an excellent fit opposite Joe Haden.
7. Arizona Cardinals: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
Arizona can’t afford to wait until the fourth round for an offensive tackle (as they did last year). With Johnson still on the board and limited value at No. 7, the Cardinals can shore up their biggest positional need with the last of this year’s elite offensive tackles.
8. Buffalo Bills: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Geno Smith may not fall this far, but Buffalo will have a hard time passing on him if he does. Kevin Kolb isn’t the long-term solution, and adding the draft’s best signal-caller will give the Bills the option of developing him for a brief time before throwing him into the fire.
9. New York Jets: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
New York needs to get better at attacking opposing quarterbacks. With just 30 sacks in 2012, the Jets need to focus on finding some quality pass-rushers in the early rounds of this draft.
Jarvis Jones doesn’t have tremendous speed, but he does almost everything well enough to warrant this selection. With terrific speed-rushing ability and solid cover skills, Jones has the potential to be an exceptional three-down linebacker in the NFL.
10. Tennessee Titans: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
Adding Andy Levitre was a good start, but the Titans still need to solidify their interior offensive line. Chance Warmack will give Chris Johnson another quality run-blocker to run behind, keeping the pressure off Jake Locker and the Titans’ passing game.
11. San Diego Chargers: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
San Diego may try to move up to acquire one of the top three offensive tackles in this class, but we have to assume the Chargers will stand pat with their first-round pick. If they choose to do so, North Carolina’s Jonathan Cooper would be a good consolation prize for missing out on Joeckel, Fisher, Johnson and Warmack.
12. Miami Dolphins: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Like San Diego, Miami would probably love to acquire a top-tier offensive lineman here. Without another option worth the 12th pick, the Dolphins can turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball and a position that still needs some additional talent.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
If Miami passes on Xavier Rhodes at No. 12, expect the Buccaneers to seriously consider the Florida State cornerback with this pick. They may reach for Washington’s Desmond Trufant, but there’s much more value in selecting Sheldon Richardson—a player who would create a deadly combo when paired with Gerald McCoy.
14. Carolina Panthers: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
Chris Gamble retired this offseason, leaving a big hole at the cornerback position. With few glaring needs to address early in this draft, the Panthers can instead draft his replacement and worry about other positional needs in subsequent rounds.
15. New Orleans Saints: Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU
Rob Ryan’s new 3-4 front will necessitate some personnel changes this offseason. The biggest of those defensive changes will have to take place at outside linebacker.
Barkevious Mingo is still very raw, but his athleticism and potential are tremendous. The Saints will have several options, but Mingo is the best suited to be a full-time pass-rusher in Ryan’s aggressive defense.
16. St. Louis Rams: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
The Rams have needs at both safety and wide receiver. It’s likely they address both in the first round with picks No. 16 and No. 22.
Having two first-round selections gives a team a lot of room to take advantage of value. Kenny Vaccaro will be an option, but Tavon Austin has the playmaking ability and star potential to be the right choice with this pick.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
The Steelers love to develop their early-round talents before throwing them into the fire. With Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark still in place, Vaccaro can play a lesser role early in his career (potentially in nickel and dime packages) and still give Dick LeBeau extra depth at both safety positions.
18. Dallas Cowboys: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama
Dallas simply must get stronger on its offensive line. The Cowboys finished 31st in the league in rushing last year and failed to keep Tony Romo on his feet. Alabama’s D.J. Fluker has the size and surprising quickness to play right tackle or either guard position, and he’ll go a long way toward solidifying one of the worst offensive lines in the league.
19. New York Giants: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
Ezekiel Ansah’s inexperience and raw football skills may force him to slide down the draft board on April 25. If he falls this far, expect the Giants to take full advantage.
New York is without a quality pass-rusher to play opposite Jason Pierre-Paul. With a little polish and a lot of coaching, Ansah could give New York one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the NFL.
20. Chicago Bears: Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia
Brian Urlacher’s exit will force the Bears to use an early-round selection on his replacement. Georgia’s Alec Ogletree is the best available, and his background as a safety makes him a good fit in a scheme that relies heavily on the Cover 2 and plenty of deep zone drops for its middle linebacker.
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State
Andre Smith is still without a contract and there’s been no indication Cincinnati will choose to re-sign him before the draft (per Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer). With a much cheaper options still on the board, the Bengals can add his replacement in a player with the technique and footwork to eventually transition to the left side of the line.
22. St. Louis Rams (from Washington): Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International
St. Louis was able to get its explosive playmaker at No. 16, and this pick has to have a defensive focus. With vacancies at both safety positions, Jonathan Cyprien is the most logical fit with this selection.
Cyprien has the speed, range and aggressiveness to play either safety position. He’ll be a great fit in Jeff Fisher’s defense.
23. Minnesota Vikings: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
Cordarrelle Patterson’s raw route-running ability has raised some concerns about his NFL readiness, but he has all the physical traits teams look for in a future No. 1 receiver. The Tennessee product is electric with the ball in his hands, giving Ponder a true home-run threat every time he gets him the ball.
24. Indianapolis Colts: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
Florida State’s Bjoern Werner is a better fit at defensive end in a 4-3, but he has the athleticism to make the transition to outside linebacker and situational pass-rusher in Indianapolis. With a lack of truly game-changing pass-rushers, the Colts can add a player with an innate ability to get after opposing quarterbacks.
25. Minnesota Vikings (from Seattle): Arthur Brown, ILB, Kansas State
The Vikings were able to secure one of the best wide receivers in this class just two picks earlier, and this selection will allow them to turn their focus to the defensive side of the ball.
Kansas State’s Arthur Brown is one of the most talented three-down linebackers in this class. His versatility, recognition skills and high motor will make him a good fit at either middle or strong-side linebacker in Minnesota.
26. Green Bay Packers: Matt Elam, S, Florida
Most of Green Bay’s position needs are on the defensive side of the ball. Safety, linebacker and defensive end could all be in play at No. 26.
Ted Thompson is terrific at identifying value and taking advantage of it early in the draft. In this case, Florida’s Matt Elam presents the best value at a position of need.
27. Houston Texans: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
The Texans have waited long enough to get some help for Andre Johnson. They need to find another quality pass-catching weapon early in this draft.
DeAndre Hopkins isn’t all that big or fast, but he runs exceptional routes and has the strong hands to go up in traffic and come down with the ball. Paired with Johnson, Hopkins could prove to be the most productive receiver in this draft class.
28. Denver Broncos: Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State
Elvis Dumervil was a huge part of Denver’s pass rush. With the defensive end now in Baltimore, the Broncos need to find his replacement as soon as possible.
Florida State’s Tank Carradine is the ideal option to fill Dumervil’s shoes, especially if he can be healthy by the start of the season. An ACL tear has limited his draft stock, but Carradine has the potential to be the best pass-rusher in this draft class.
29. New England Patriots: Keenan Allen, WR, California
Red flags continue to pile up for Keenan Allen, including a drug test he reportedly failed at the combine (per ESPN).
Paired with a nagging knee injury and marginal straight-line speed, the California product is no longer the early first-round selection he was previously expected to be.
That said, New England has made its desire for another receiving option all too apparent this offseason. Allen is still a highly talented player who will fit in well in an offense that favors good hands and crisp route-running.
30. Atlanta Falcons: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
Offseason changes necessitated the release of John Abraham, and while Osi Umenyiora will help ease the sting of his departure, the Falcons still need another pass-rushing defensive end to help him out.
Damontre Moore didn’t impress anyone with his offseason workouts, but those numbers mean very little when watching him on the field. The Texas A&M standout is a heady pass-rusher who uses his leverage well and has an innate ability to get into the backfield. He’ll be a terrific fit across from Umenyiora.
31. San Francisco 49ers: Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama
San Francisco’s wealth of draft picks will allow it to add both depth and talent in this draft. They can acquire both in selecting Alabama’s Jesse Williams.
Williams played both defensive end and nose tackle in Nick Saban’s 3-4 front at Alabama, and he could play a similar role for the 49ers.
32. Baltimore Ravens: Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame
Manti Te’o is arguably the most polarizing prospect in this draft. He may not be the popular selection, but there’s no denying Baltimore’s need at the inside linebacker position. Kevin Minter could also be a possibility here, but Te’o has too much talent to fall out of the first round.
33. Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
34. San Francisco 49ers (from Kansas City): Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
35. Philadelphia Eagles: Kyle Long, OT, Oregon
36. Detroit Lions: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
