2013 NFL Mock Draft: Complete Predictions for Remainder of NFL Draft
The 2013 NFL draft is through three rounds, and already we've already seen plenty of excellent picks and trades, but also plenty of bizarre selections and moves.
As a result, there's still plenty of talent available in the final rounds of the draft this year, with some of the biggest names not yet selected. Guys like Matt Barkley and Tyler Wilson remain the pick of the players still remaining, while prospects like Jesse Williams and Quinton Patton also remain available.
Read on to see a full mock draft of the final four rounds on Saturday, and see which players are heading to which teams over the remainder of the 2013 NFL draft.

2013 NFL Draft: Round 4
1. (98) Jacksonville Jaguars: Sanders Commings, CB/S, Georgia
Jacksonville still desperately need help in the secondary here, and whilst the pressure will be on to take one of the talented quarterbacks who is available, the Jaguars would be much better served trusting Blaine Gabbert and helping their defense here.
Sanders has good size and could play at either cornerback or safety, and that versatility makes him a very appealing option indeed for Jacksonville.
2. (99) Kansas City Chiefs: Phillip Thomas, SS, Fresno State
Thomas is an athletically gifted player and is a great option for the Chiefs here, who haven't yet been able to add any real depth to their defense in the draft.
3. (100) Oakland Raiders: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
They might have Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor, but the prospect of Tyler Wilson being available at the No. 3 pick here is simply too much to pass up for Oakland.
Wilson gives the Raiders depth under center and allows one of their quarterbacks to become a nice trade asset down the future—if not even himself, should the Flynn-Prior combination work in Oakland.
4. (101) Philadelphia Eagles: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisana Tech
Patton has tremendous hands and would be a great fit in Philadelphia's system to add further depth out wide. Jeremy Maclin won't have instilled a great deal of confidence as far as his contract and injuries go, so it makes sense to add in another good route-runner who can succeed as a No. 2.
5. (102) New England Patriots: Akeem Spence, DT, Illinois
New England has never been shy of pulling a draft surprise, and with its defensive line still needing some depth for the year ahead, don't be surprised to see a stunning move by the Patriots.
Akeem Spence comes from nowhere to be drafted in the fourth round.
6. (103) Arizona Cardinals: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
Just because Carson Palmer is in town, don't expect the Cardinals to fool around here and not take a good quarterback prospect if there's one available—which there should be by the No. 6 pick of the fourth round given that Barkley, Wilson and Nassib are all still on the boards.
Arizona had shown interest in Barkley before the draft, and whilst he might not be the star that he was originally considered to be, he's still a great selection who could well see game time in 2013.
Especially if Carson Palmer plays like Carson Palmer often plays.
7. (104) Miami Dolphins: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Marcus Lattimore won't be ready to go from the opening day, but his potential is worth a pick here from Miami, who has already lost Reggie Bush to the Lions.
Lattimore is a smart running back who, once healthy, could provide some interesting spark and competition coming off the bench for Miami.
8. (105) Buffalo Bills: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
Buffalo has done a nice job in the draft up until now, adding offensive weapons to their team and building well for the future of the franchise.
However, the Bills do have to play against Tom Brady and an improving Ryan Tannehill twice a year, so adding some defensive help would be a smart move now.
9. (106) Miami Dolphins: Malliciah Goodman, DE, Clemson
In his time at Clemson, Goodman showed real promise at times, with his long arms and success in the nickel package making for an attractive option here.
10. (107) Tennessee Titans: Brandon Jenkins, OLB, Florida State
Tennessee doesn't have a great deal of depth at outside linebacker, and since Arian Foster is lining up against the Titans twice a year, it makes sense to get some depth there right away—prompting a move for Florida State's Brandon Jenkins.
Jenkins is very athletic, with his speed on the outside allowing him to beat linemen to the edge, which the Titans will be very appreciative of here.
11. (108) Carolina Panthers: Chris Faulk, OT, LSU
Carolina's hold at right tackle is fairly obvious here, and the Panthers seriously need some depth on their offensive line. Bringing in Chris Faulk—whom they've already scouted—makes sense for this pick.
12. (109) Green Bay Packers: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
Jesse Williams is a big guy who is incredibly athletic, and after sliding down the draft boards to the third round, the Green Bay Packers will be the beneficiaries of his services next season.
Which, given the fact they play Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte twice a year, will be a great selection for the Packers' run defense, which has been known to leak yards and big plays. The addition of Williams helps Green Bay's run defense a great deal.
13. (110) Arizona Cardinals: Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina
Given the depth that the NFC West is gathering on defense, and the proficiency shown from Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore over the years, making a move here for linebacker Kevin Reddick—who is great against the run—is a nice option for the Cardinals.
Reddick is great at fighting through traffic to make stops, and he'll be a nice option for the Cardinals in some packages next season.
14. (111) Cleveland Browns: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech
Brandon Weeden isn't all that bad of a quarterback if his offensive line does its job and he has someone other than Josh Gordon to throw the ball to.
Da'Rick Rogers is a nice attempt to help patch that up.
15. (112) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson
For Ellington to still be around the boards now is a great steal for the Bucs, who having already locked up their secondary. The front office will now look to secure a replacement for second-year running back Doug Martin—perhaps signaling a pending deal for given that LeGarrette Blount.
16. (113) St. Louis Rams: Alvin Bailey, OG, Arkansas
Sam Bradford might be getting a little nervous heading into the third day of draft action that there hasn't been any real action to help his offensive line next year.
The Rams will start to fix that in the fourth round here.
17. (114) Dallas Cowboys: T.J. Barnes, DT, Georgia Tech
It's been a strange draft from the Cowboys so far, and that could well continue in the fourth round here, with Barnes making sense for the Cowboys' defensive line for next season, but perhaps not the greatest fit for the NFC East side. We'll soon find out, I guess.
18. (115) Pittsburgh Steelers: DE, John Simon, Ohio State
Some more depth is needed from the Steelers at outside linebacker—especially given the fact that both Andy Dalton and Joe Flacco have got some new offensive assistance for 2013. Mike Tomlin knows what he's doing with pass-rushers, and Simon would be a great fit for their system.
19. (116) New York Giants: Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia
The Giants need to offer more protection for Eli Manning, and they've got to work on plugging up the gaps in their offensive line for their running game to continue to flourish.
Bringing in Aboushi—who is a very big man indeed—would be a nice start.
20. (117) Chicago Bears: Duke Williams, CB, Nevada
Williams is a quick and rangy cornerback who is more than capable of shifting back to safety when needed. He is good at making tackles, and despite some character flags, he should be a nice fit in Chicago, who will be grateful for his services in 2013.
Playing Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson twice a year will do that to you.
21. (118) Cincinnati Bengals: Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois
Hawthorne might not seem like a great pick here, but he had a very strong 2011 for Illinois and has shown good versatility throughout special teams as well.
He's tall and long, and given that this team doesn't have a great deal of long-term depth at cornerback, he makes for an intriguing pick here by Cincinnati.
22. (119) Washington Redskins: Robert Lester, SS, Alabama
Washington doesn't have a great deal of depth at safety, especially given the fact that Brandon Meriweather is coming off a torn ACL—making further depth in the backfield a must here.
23. (120) Minnesota Vikings: Josh Evans, FS, Florida
The Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson effect comes into full force here for Minnesota, who has done very well throughout the draft this year—and continue to do so here by adding a very promising prospect into its secondary for even further depth in the roster.
24. (121) Indianapolis Colts: Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
Harper is not the biggest wide receiver in the draft this year, but he is great at route running and has excellent hands. For a team that has Andrew Luck under center, he's an excellent pickup, and one that will definitely help spread the field for Reggie Wayne—which can only mean good things.
25. (122) Green Bay Packers: Matt Furstenburg, TE, Maryland
Ted Thompson has done exceptionally well this draft (did we expect anything else?), and with Jermichael Finley's future seemingly not quite locked in for the future, the Packers need to make sure that they some depth at tight end to keep Aaron Rodgers happy.
Furstenburg has nice hands, and with Rodgers throwing him the ball, he is more than capable of thriving in the open field at some point in the future.
26. (123) Seattle Seahawks: Jelani Jenkins, OLB, Florida
Jenkins' draft stock is down a lot lower than it would have been were it not for his injuries, and he represents a great pickup for a very strong Seahawks defense. Seattle did need to replace Leroy Hill, and Jenkins is an athletic linebacker who will thrive in coverage for the Seahawks.
27. (124) Houston Texans: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
Matt Schaub isn't going to get any younger or more agile, and with a rich history of illnesses, the Texans need to have a good backup in place for him.
T.J. Yates isn't that, and given that two other quarterbacks exist on the draft board before now, it's not unreasonable to think that Nassib could slide to No. 27—where the Texans will more than happily snap him up and start to develop him for the future.
28. (125) Denver Broncos: Tony Jefferson, FS, Oklahoma
Oklahoma free safety Tony Jefferson's size makes him a potential cover as well for Denver, which is a nice move given its weaknesses in the secondary at times.
Michael Adams isn't that good, and with a dominant defensive line ahead of them, the Broncos know that they need to get stronger in the secondary.
29. (126) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M
Arrelious Benn is gone, and with Josh Freeman seemingly under pressure now given some of their earlier draft moves, adding in some depth at wide receiver is a good way to help him stay strong.
The Bucs continue to build on a very strong receiving core.
30. (127) Atlanta Falcons: Brian Schwenke, C, California
Schwenke adds nice depth along the offensive line for Atlanta (able to play at either center or guard) and will help keep Matt Ryan healthy for the future.
Steven Jackson will also be a pretty happy boy.
31. (128) San Francisco 49ers: D.J. Harper, RB, Boise State
With their defense so strong, the San Francisco 49ers can afford to lash out here and spend one of their many draft picks remaining on a project—running back D.J. Harper , who can offer a nice complement and different style to that of Frank Gore in years to come.
32. (129) Baltimore Ravens: Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee
Joe Flacco needs a backup. Tyler Bray is still available. End of story.
33. (130) Baltimore Ravens: Tavarres King, WR, Georgia
With wide receivers disappearing off the boards rapidly, Baltimore will want to make sure that it has plenty of options for Joe Flacco in years to come—and plenty of chances for Torrey Smith to have an open field—making Tavarres King a nice pickup here.
34. (131) San Francisco 49ers: Reid Fragel, OT, Ohio State
Reid Fragel is a very big man—which for Colin Kaepernick, who needs as much time in the read-option offense as possible, makes for a nice signing by San Francisco.
35. (132) Detroit Lions: William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
Standing at 6'7", William Gholston has the potential to be a big star as part of a very strong Lions' front seven. Kyle Vanden Bosch and Cliff Avril leaving means they really need to add some depth here, and Gholston does just that perfectly.
36. (133) Atlanta Falcons: Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
They've got Steven Jackson, but as far as longevity goes, there's a desperate need for Atlanta at running back. Mike Gillislee fills that perfectly, and having already interviewed him before the draft, it seems the Falcons could well pull the trigger on the Florida running back.
