In this year's draft class, only one thing is certain: No one knows what is going to happen once the draft starts.
Each year, it's impossible to predict exactly what is going to happen, but this year is even more enigmatic. Without an elite quarterback prospect available, the teams at the top of the draft are desperately trying to trade down but aren't finding any suitors. With so many blue chip offensive linemen, we could see as many as three tackles and two guards drafted in the first 15 picks (maybe even the first 10)!
Once the Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock, the rubber will meet the road on months of preparation and countless hours of film study. Yet, the game is just beginning as teams look to wheel, deal and steal before they reveal who their picks will be.
The Chiefs want to move down—that's no surprise to anyone—but anyone who might be a suitor is thinking the exact same thing they are. Why move up so far for Joeckel when Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson are such a similar caliber of prospect?
Yet, the Chiefs could do much worse than this pick. With the selection of Joeckel, Branden Albert is almost certainly on his way out of town (perhaps for a 2013 draft pick). Andy Reid gets his franchise left tackle and extra picks to boot.
The Jaguars are throwing up lots of smoke screens about this pick—smokescreens that are effective because this team has so many needs. Could the Jaguars go offensive line? Sure, but drafting a right tackle (or a left tackle moving Eugene Monroe to right tackle) seems like a luxury pick. Could the Jaguars go defense? Absolutely, as Gus Bradley looks to recreate the defense he had in Seattle.
Still, no pick is going to make as big of an impact—both short-term and long—as drafting a franchise quarterback. Blaine Gabbert is not the guy. Geno Smith can be.
Lotulelei has been one of the top defensive prospects since early fall, but various bumps and stock shifts have sent him up and down the fickle boards of the media. NFL teams don't operate like that, however, and Lotulelei should end up going a lot higher than the flavors of the month that some experts have in this spot.
The monster tackle from Utah will step in and redefine the Raiders defense from Day 1.
With Chip Kelly's new offense being installed in Philadelphia, a lot of eyes are on the defensive side of the ball to see if they'll be able to keep pace with an up-tempo attack. It doesn't matter how many points the offense puts up if the defense fails to keep opponents from putting up one more.
Jordan steps in as an outside linebacker for the Eagles and offers solid pass-rushing ability, but even more in terms of coverage and pursuit.
This has been the pick on my mock drafts since January, and I believe the only thing that could change it is a trade up from someone who wants to snag Fisher first. With Fisher installed at left tackle to protect Matt Stafford's blind side, Riley Reiff moves to either right tackle or right guard and solidifies two gaping holes currently in the Lions starting lineup.
Cornerbacks take a while to get used to the NFL. Luckily for Milliner, he'll get to start opposite Joe Haden and deal with No. 2 wide receivers instead of the Calvin and Andre Johnsons of the world. Milliner isn't the perfect cornerback prospect, but if he's able to play with the same physicality he showed at Alabama with the speed he showed at the combine, he could be close.
Johnson is the last of the elite tackle prospects in this class, so he could end up going a pick or two higher to teams looking to leapfrog the Cardinals. If he falls to them, though, look for them to run (not walk) to turn in their card. With Johnson protecting Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald might actually get a few decent passes thrown his way in 2013.
The Bills could still take a quarterback here (or, more likely in a trade down)—even with the addition of Kevin Kolb. With no trades in this mock, they go receiver and pick up an awesome weapon to put across from and complement Stevie Johnson. Patterson's deep-field ability, straight-line speed and ability to put up yards after the catch will make whoever is throwing passes in Buffalo really happy.
The Jets need a pass rush like Tim Tebow needs a one-way ticket out of LaGuardia. It's going to be tempting to trade up to take Milliner as replacement for Revis Island (Milliner Peninsula?), but the cornerbacks aren't going to matter for Gang Green unless they can get some pressure up front.
Ansah is a freak athlete, and some Jets fans will compare him to Vernon Gholston. The comparison isn't fair, however, because Ansah is already more of a natural pass rusher than Gholston ever was. Yet, this is a bit of a boom-or-bust pick, so fans may still have room for concern.
The Titans don't need Chance Warmack quite as desperately after bringing in Andy Levitre from Buffalo, but one can imagine Jake Locker and Chris Johnson just pounding the table for more help on the interior of the offensive line.
Warmack might be the best player in the entire draft and would make an immediate impact in both the run and the pass game. CJ might actually get 2K again with Warmack around.
This is a perfect example of a player the Chargers don't "need" but one they could certainly use. Austin might be the best offensive weapon in the entire draft, though "receiver" may not adequately describe his true impact on the game. Austin could be one part Percy Harvin and one part Darren Sproles—a walking mismatch.
He'd give the Chargers offense an element it hasn't had in years and a lot more excitement than the current roster holds.
The Dolphins are looking to make an impact in a big way this offseason with so much money spent in free agency, stadium improvements to fund and a general manager on the hot seat. Werner's stock has fallen a bit in media circles as of late, but he's a legitimate stud as a pass rusher and should get even better as he continues to learn the game. Across from Cameron Wake, he could grab double-digit sack totals sooner rather than later.
A dream scenario for the Jets would be a top receiver falling here, but Cooper is a solid consolation prize. Remember the "butt fumble?" A talented interior lineman like Cooper could go a long way toward making sure that sort of thing never happens again. The Jets have tons of work to do putting that offense back together, but starting with an elite lineman is a good place to start.
This is a bit of a dream scenario for the Panthers, as a player many think is worthy of a top-10 selection (note: I do not believe that) falls to them at a position they desperately need help at. Floyd looks the part of a stud tackle but needs to continue to develop his game to make a bigger impact. Meanwhile, he takes up a lot of space in front of the Panthers' talented linebackers so they can make even more big plays.
Mingo is another player others are much higher on. The problem isn't a lack of talent, but rather a lack of size. With so little bulk on Mingo's frame, it's likely he ends up as a rotational or situational pass-rusher and doesn't see a lot of work on run downs—at least, early on in his career. That said, the Saints need pass-rushers in the new Rob Ryan defense, and the local prospect fits nicely.
The Rams put a great defense together in Jeff Fisher's first year in St. Louis, but this team isn't going anywhere until it starts putting more talent around Sam Bradford. The Rams have lots of one-dimensional receivers, but Allen is a multi-tool threat who can work between the hashes and has the ability to win jump balls down the field as well.
Alec Ogletree is a bit of a weird fit no matter where he ends up. Many teams will wish he was a little bit bigger and others will wish he was a little bit more of a pass rusher. Still, he's been productive in a pro-style 3-4 defense and has the toughness that teams like the Steelers crave. He needs to learn to shed blocks a little better, but aggressiveness is not an issue.
The Cowboys moved on from Rob Ryan's defense this offseason and brought in Monte Kiffin to bring the Tampa 2 to Dallas. Part of the Tampa 2's philosophy—the two-deep safety play—is going to be awfully problematic with the Cowboys' current personnel. Vaccaro has the ball skills and the range to shine in that type of offense and the ability to keep everything in front of him.
The Giants are known for their near-addictive need for pass rushers, but with Osi Umeniyora headed to Atlanta, hurting an already lackluster pass rush last year, the Giants may need even more help along the defensive line. Yes, the Giants have a lot of holes on their roster, but improving up front has to be mission No. 1.
The Bears defense looked elite at moments last season but took a huge step back when it counted. Now, they'll have questions to answer everywhere but cornerback as they also look to install a new offense and better protect Jay Cutler. Brown could play a number of linebacker positions, but in the end, I think he steps in as Brian Urlacher's successor and gives the Bears front a lot of stability.
The Bengals aren't looking to pay Andre Smith what he wants, so why not grab Fluker, who can have all of the impact and fewer headaches? The Bengals are a defensively built team, and any step back in their ability to run the ball and control the clock could seriously change the dynamic and send things spiraling out of control. Fluker keeps them on the track to success.
The Rams just brought Michael Brockers on board last season, so pairing him with another first-round tackle might seem like a luxury. Yet, on a defense that is so close to great, the ability to add another fantastic pass rusher and create even more chances for that secondary is too good to pass up.
The Vikings already has some questions in the secondary and now have lost Antoine Winfield to the Seattle Seahawks. (Seriously, who don't they have now?) Rhodes can't "replace" Winfield, but he's a physical specimen to put across from Chris Cook and keep opponents from taking advantage of the perimeter.
Hopkins may or may not fall on draft day thanks to some off-the-field incidents in Indianapolis that may or may not have happened (Hopkins denies he was involved). If he falls past the Colts, however, it will be a huge mistake on their part. Reggie Wayne may have looked ageless at times in 2012, but Hopkins will be Andrew Luck's favorite target for a very long time.
While the Vikings would love a receiver here, they get another "best player available" type pick at a position where they could really use an upgrade. Fred Evans and Letroy Guion aren't making anyone forget about Pat Williams. Jones gives the Vikings another havoc-creating body up front and helps them stop the high-octane offenses of the NFC North.
This is one of those picks that almost makes too much sense. The Packers have a great passing offense but can't run the ball, and defenses know they can tee off on Aaron Rodgers—increasing his sack totals and decreasing his chances of getting another Super Bowl. Adding a tough-nosed, but dynamic runner could seriously help the Packers offense. Ted Thompson flirted with adding Steven Jackson in free agency, and Lacy could be a great consolation prize.
Brian Cushing makes up for a lot of bad play in the Texans' linebacking corps, and J.J. Watt keeps the entire defense running smoothly even when everything else goes wrong. As the Texans saw last year, it's time for a little more talent—especially up the middle. Minter is the best inside linebacker in this year's draft class and can help clean up anything that gets to the second level. He's not Cushing, but the two will be a fantastic pair.
The Broncos are going to put up a lot of passing yards next season after the addition of Wes Welker to an already great passing attack. Now, they have to make sure they can stop teams from doing the same to them. While Denver has some good safety prospects on the roster, none are sure things. Of course, neither is Elam, but he'll add an outstanding physical hitter and add a new dimension to the Broncos secondary.
The Patriots have been putting together a much better defense in the past couple of seasons and are starting to dominate the AFC East on both sides of the ball. Possessions shut down by the Pats defense means extra possessions for Tom Brady and the offense. The Patriots still need more talent at all three levels of the defense, though, and Jones would be a great hybrid player who can play with his hand up or in the dirt.
Look, I know Tony Gonzalez is coming back.
That doesn't matter. Period.
The draft is not about 2013. The draft is about the next decade. Gonzalez might be back for one year, but Eifert can be a dynamic addition to this offense for a long time to come. Plus, the Falcons can certainly use Eifert and Gonzalez together (and Roddy White...and Julio Jones...and Steven Jackson).
If a football team is only 22 starters and "backups," this is a stupid pick. If an NFL team is full of mismatches, subpackages and rotations, this pick is a no-brainer.
The 49ers' front seven could not be a much more impressive unit. The back seven, on the other hand, could certainly use some work. Without Dashon Goldson (now with the Buccaneers), the problem could be even worse in 2013. The Niners need guys who can cover to give their pass-rush time to get to the passer. Jamar Taylor is the best cornerback no one is talking about. He's physical, athletic and has great ball skills. He'll step in as a key player for the Niners' next playoff run.
The Ravens' best cornerback—Lardarius Webb—was injured last year, and the best cornerback they had—Cary Williams—isn't a Raven any more. As Joe Flacco and company try to repeat, they're going to need someone who can cover across from Webb. Trufant may have some of the cleanest man coverage ability in the entire draft.
