2013 NFL Mock Draft: Complete 2-Round Mock Draft

Matt Schreiber@@schreiberstakeAnalyst IIIApril 17, 2013

The 2013 NFL Draft is just eight days away! That means it's time for my final mock draft as promised. This time, I have provided two complete rounds of picks for the upcoming draft. 

The No. 1 pick is pretty much clear cut. The Kansas City Chiefs will be selecting the best overall player in Luke Joeckel.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley liked Geno Smith's workout, and I expect him to snag Smith with the second pick. From then on it's pretty much the best fit for each team. 

I like the Eagles to take Dion Jordan at No. 4. He is an extremely talented athlete who will fit in perfectly to Chip Kelly's 3-4 defensive scheme. The fact that Jordan played under Kelly at Oregon is just another plus to the puzzle.

Eric Fisher, in my opinion, is the second best player in the draft. I see him falling all the way down to No. 7 where the Arizona Cardinals will be more than lucky to bring him to Glendale. 

Heart problems detected in the offseason will keep Star Lotulelei out of the top five, but the Jets will keep him in the top 10 by filling a void at the defensive tackle position.

Eddie Lacy will be the only running back taken off the board in the first round, joining forces with Andy Dalton and A.J. Green in Cincinnati. 

Three receivers, Tavon Austin, Cordarrelle Patterson and DeAndre Hopkins, will look to solve passing game issues in St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Houston respectively.

In this defensive-heavy draft, it is likely 20 defensive players will be off the board come Round 2.



The SEC headlines the first round with 13 players taken off the board, and four of them coming from the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide.

Below are my projected first 32 picks for the 2013 NFL Draft.

Round 1 - Mock Draft

Pick Team Player Position College
1 Kansas City Luke Joeckel OT Texas A&M
2 Jacksonville Geno Smith QB WVU
3 Oakland Sharrif Floyd DT Florida
4 Philadelphia Dion Jordan DE Oregon
5 Detroit Dee Milliner CB Alabama
6 Cleveland Ezekial Ansah DE BYU
7 Arizona Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan
8 Buffalo Johnathan Cooper OG North Carolina
9 New York Jets Star Lotulelei DT Utah
10 Tennessee Xavier Rhodes CB FSU
11 San Diego Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma
12 Miami Chance Warmack OG Alabama
13 Tampa Bay Sheldon Richardson DT Missouri
14 Carolina Kenny Vaccaro FS Texas
15 New Orleans Barkevious Mingo OLB LSU
16 St. Louis Tavon Austin WR WVU
17 Pittsburgh Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee
18 Dallas Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina
19 New York Giants DJ Fluker OT Alabama
20 Chicago Alec Ogletree ILB Georgia
21 Cincinnati Eddie Lacy RB Alabama
22 St. Louis Eric Reid FS LSU
23 Minnesota Jamar Taylor CB Boise State
24 Indianapolis Datone Jones DE UCLA
25 Minnesota Manti Te'o ILB Notre Dame
26 Green Bay Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame
27 Houston DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson
28 Denver Bjoern Werner DE FSU
29 New England Desmond Trufant CB Washington
30 Atlanta DJ Hayden CB Houston
31 San Francisco Matt Elam SS Florida
32 Baltimore Kevin Minter ILB


The second round is where teams will be looking to steal some hidden talent to fill holes in their rosters. The Jaguars will get the ball rolling with Alex Okafor, the highly touted defensive end from Texas. He brings speed and athleticism that will help the defensive-minded Gus Bradley put together a defense comparable to the one he had rolling in Seattle.

The Philadelphia Eagles take the second quarterback off the board in EJ Manuel, who can potentially fit in nicely to Chip Kelly's high-speed offense, assuming he maintains better ball security outside of the pocket.

The Jets will take Ryan Nassib with their early second-round pick, who I believe is going to be the most successful quarterback coming out of the 2013 draft class. He will have a real good shot at the starting gig with only Mark Sanchez standing in his way.

Matt Barkley will head to Buffalo two picks later where he will have a chance to compete with newly acquired Kevin Kolb for the starting job.

The Washington Redskins traded their first-round pick to acquire Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft, so their first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft won't come until the 51st overall pick. I see Darius Slay as a good fit to fill a void at the cornerback position in Washington.

A recently failed drug test will force first-round hopeful wide receiver Keenan Allen out of California to drop to the 59th pick, where he can get his act together with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Seventeen of the 30 second-round picks will be defensive players, creating a total of 37 defensive players taken in the first 62 picks of the draft.



Below is the second round of my mock draft. Enjoy.
