2013 NFL Mock Draft: Matt Miller's 7-Round Projections Heading into Bowl Season

0 of 38

    What better way to kick off college football's bowl season than by taking a fresh look at all seven rounds of the 2013 NFL draft?

    With the college football season nearing an end, NFL draft season is starting to heat up. While we don't quite know the number of underclassmen who will declare for the upcoming draft, we are starting to get a clearer picture of the actual draft order every week.

    Here is an updated look at the 2013 class, with the draft order set by record through Week 13. All assumed underclassmen who will enter the draft are included at this time.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars

1 of 38

    Pick: QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

    The Blaine Gabbert era will come to an end after the 2012 season, if it hasn't already, in Jacksonville. With the team likely to replace general manager Gene Smith—and maybe head coach Mike Mularkey—a new regime will be in place, and they'll surely want to pick their own quarterback.

    Geno Smith isn't a flawless, Andrew Luck-type talent, but he is a dynamic playmaker who can create offensively in and out of the pocket. His ability to make downfield throws will open up the Jacksonville offense in ways that Gabbert never could. With Justin Blackmon already in place, Smith walks into a good situation, and one that he can quickly influence in a positive fashion.

2. Kansas City Chiefs

2 of 38

    Pick: QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas

    Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have both tried, and failed, as the starting quarterbacks in Kansas City this season. A change is coming.

    Whether it's with Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel as the decision-makers remains to be seen, but it's a virtual guarantee at this point that the Chiefs will be looking hard at the available quarterbacks this offseason. With the free agency class very weak, K.C. will need to look to the NFL draft.

    With Geno Smith gone to Jacksonville, Tyler Wilson becomes the next-best candidate. And he's a good one. Wilson has an NFL-level arm and accuracy, and he's one of the toughest quarterbacks to come out of college in some time. His pocket presence is great, and his courage under fire will remind a lot of people of a young Brett Favre.

    This need could change depending on what happens with Branden Albert in free agency and how the team decides to handle the contracts of Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson on defense. But, in early December, quarterback is the overwhelming need for Kansas City.

3. Carolina Panthers

3 of 38

    Pick: OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

    The Carolina Panthers have a good left tackle in Jordan Gross, but the team is in a position to simply draft the best available player. That's easily Luke Joeckel.

    The Texas A&M left tackle is one of the cleanest offensive linemen I've seen in the last five years. He'll grade out as well as a Jake Long or Joe Thomas-type prospect by the time the April draft rolls around. Joeckel grades out better than Matt Kalil, who went No. 4 overall in 2012's draft.

    The Panthers would look to shift Gross to the right side, solidifying an offensive line that needs massive help. If 2012 rookie Amini Silatolua develops as expected, the team will have a much improved look in 2013.

4. Oakland Raiders

4 of 38

    Pick: ILB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame

    The on- and off-field issues of linebacker Rolando McClain will force the Oakland Raiders into looking long and hard at middle linebacker Manti Te'o. But what they'll find is the Notre Dame prospect doesn't just have better character; he's a better football player.

    Te'o is a Heisman Trophy finalist, and my pick as the winner. He's been at the top of his game for the last two seasons at South Bend, doing things that linebackers simply don't do. He's totalled seven interceptions in the 2012 season, showing off his vision, instincts and agility. He's been a force between the hashes, too.

    Te'o has some flaws, like all prospects, but he's one of the safest picks in the entire 2013 class. That's what the Raiders need right now. Leadership and class.

5. Philadelphia Eagles

5 of 38

    Pick: DT Star Lotulelei, Utah

    Defensive tackle may not be the biggest need in Philadelphia, but due to injuries and a roster loaded with young players, it can afford to draft the highest rated player on its board. It doesn't hurt that Star Lotulelei would be a nice upgrade playing next to Fletcher Cox.

    The team could look at the offensive line here, but as long as Jason Peters can come back healthy in 2013 at left tackle, a lot of its issues will be workable outside the first round. Maybe Taylor Lewan or Jake Matthews gets Philly's attention here to eventually replace Peters, but that seems like a stretch in the first round.

    Instead, the team will bank on a defensive player who can shape the new-look Eagles in 2013. With Juan Castillo and Jim Washburn gone, the scheme is set to change no matter if Andy Reid is back with the team. Drafting an impact defensive tackle like Star will go a long way in revamping the front four.

6. Arizona Cardinals

6 of 38

    Pick: OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

    There is no questioning where the Arizona Cardinals' biggest draft need is at—their offensive line has been the worst in the NFL all season. Finally pulling the trigger on an offensive lineman to replace Levi Brown has to be the priority.

    Taylor Lewan brings nice versatility to the line. He's athletic enough to play left tackle, but should the team want to keep Brown on the blindside for a few more seasons, Lewan is strong enough to line up on the right side while he transitions to the NFL—similar to what Tyron Smith did in Dallas after being a first-round pick.

    Lewan signifies a clear upgrade to the position and shows fans that the Cardinals are serious about finally fixing their leaky front five.

7. Cleveland Browns

7 of 38

    Pick: OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

    Best player available. That is the mantra that the new Cleveland Browns ownership must remember when heading into the draft.

    The Cleveland roster is loaded with young players, some already showing their star potential, and the focus should be continuing that growth by building the talent level and adding more young talent. This isn't the year to sell out in a big trade up the board, nor is it time to panic and start filling needs. The Browns aren't close to competing for a Super Bowl, so the focus has to be on talent and not needs.

    Speaking of talent, Jarvis Jones may be the most talented player in the entire draft class. The Georgia outside linebacker will draw many comparisons to Von Miller, and his ability to aid a pass rush as a 4-3 outside linebacker is very similar. As long as Jones' spinal stenosis issue doesn't creep into his scouting reports, the outside 'backer is looking at a sure-fire top-10 selection.

8. Detroit Lions

8 of 38

    Pick: CB Dee Milliner, Alabama

    Just one year removed from a playoff berth, the Detroit Lions find themselves in a reloading phase. Again. 

    The 2012 offseason allowed the Lions to focus on getting younger on the offensive line, but one area they couldn't address was cornerback. Now that is the team's clear-cut weakness.

    With Bill Bentley on the roster from last draft, the Lions can afford to add one more player, if that player can be a day one starter. Dee Milliner can be. Milliner brings the size, speed and vision to be a starting corner in the NFL. He's well-versed in Nick Saban's NFL-style schemes from his days at Alabama, something that will help him translate quickly to the Lions starting lineup. 

9. San Diego Chargers

9 of 38

    Pick: OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M

    The San Diego Chargers swung on left tackle Jared Gaither in free agency, and that miss has set the team back dramatically this year. Gaither played well in three games to end the 2011 season, but San Diego's front office ignored his lingering health issues. Now Gaither is a risk moving forward, and the team is still without a left tackle.

    Jake Matthews makes up one-half of college football's best tackle duo at Texas A&M. Paired with Luke Joeckel, the two have become an excellent combination on the edges of the Aggie offense. Matthews is ready for the NFL.

    As a right tackle in the A&M scheme, Matthews has shown very good strength and balance—enough so that he can be looked at as a LT once in the NFL. Matthews has the tools to be a very successful blindside blocker, but even in a worst-case scenario, he could step in and fill the hole the Chargers have on the right side for the next decade.

10. Tennessee Titans

10 of 38

    Pick: DE Dion Jordan, Oregon

    The Tennessee Titans are in good shape with a roster full of young studs on both sides of the ball. Now it's about filling in those last few gaps and looking to add talent at hard-to-find positions. Like defensive end.

    Oregon's Dion Jordan is a hot-rising prospect in the 2013 class. His versatility as an outside linebacker and/or defensive end makes him very attractive as the NFL moves to more of a 3-4 defensive-based league. Jordan has the speed and strength to fit as an edge rusher no matter the scheme being used. In Tennessee, he would line up opposite Kamerion Wimbley and terrorize quarterbacks.

11. Buffalo Bills

11 of 38

    Pick: QB Matt Barkley, USC

    The Buffalo Bills want a new quarterback, but are they willing to overpay for one?

    Chances are, the answer to that is yes, and USC quarterback Matt Barkley finds himself in a position to be overpaid for his services. The Bills would love to have Barkley, but drafting him here is a bit too high for my taste.

    Barkley leaves USC a decorated and productive quarterback. He's like the Ken doll of NFL quarterback prospects—he just looks like he would be a long-term NFL starter. That is, until you ask him to throw deep. Barkley's intermediate-to-deep accuracy and strength are both major question marks on his scouting report, but NFL teams have a way of looking the other way when they need a new signal-caller. 

    Barkley stands to benefit from a weak crop of quarterbacks and a heavy need for the position in the top half of the draft.

12. Miami Dolphins

12 of 38

    Pick: OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

    If you're Ryan Tannehill, how do you feel about Richie Incognito as your left guard? Probably not very good, unless you find yourself in a bar fight. It's time to look for upgrades.

    The Miami offseason will be shaped heavily by free agency. If the team chooses to not re-sign Jake Long, it could spend its first pick on a right tackle. If the front office cannot lure a top-flight wide receiver to town, this selection could—and should—be used on a wideout.

    Reaching for a position of need can set a franchise back, though. Instead, the smart move would be drafting the highest rated player who is also at a position of need. Like Chance Warmack.

    The Alabama guard has the highest rating I've ever given a college prospect at the position. The Dolphins' biggest need isn't at guard, but Warmack is a can't-miss prospect. 

13. New Orleans Saints

13 of 38

    Pick: DE Barkevious Mingo, LSU

    Bring on the pass-rushers.

    The New Orleans Saints hired Steve Spagnuolo to run their defense, but they were (and are) missing the key components to run his defensive schemes up front. Spagnuolo loves to get pressure with his front four, leaving the back seven to cover, but he can't do that with the players on the roster now.

    The team should focus on building around 2011 first-rounder Cameron Jordan and then look to add a premium pass-rusher. Someone like Barkevious Mingo. The LSU prospect is an athletic freak, but he's also strong enough to shed blockers. He's experienced as a left end in the Tigers defense, meaning he's used to going up against bigger, stronger right tackles.

    That will bode well for his transition to the NFL, where the Saints will ask him to simply pin his ears back and go after the quarterback.

14. New York Jets

14 of 38

    Pick: OLB Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

    There may be big changes coming to the New York Jets organization, so predicting in December the mindset of the front office is tough. But no matter who is there calling the shots in April, improving the pass rush will be a focus.

    The first round of the draft has helped New York rebuild its defensive line, but as long as the team is planning to run a 3-4 scheme, it needs to add horses on the edge to rush the passer. Texas A&M's Damontre Moore is that guy.

    Moore has been a constant pass-rushing presence in the SEC this season, showing that up against bigger, stronger, more athletic offensive tackles he can get the job done at a high rate. That production, plus his raw ability to dip and rush the passer, will make Moore very appealing in the early stages of the draft.

15. St. Louis Rams

15 of 38

    Pick: DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

    The St. Louis Rams have two picks to use in the Round 1 thanks to their trade with Washington that eventually sent Robert Griffin III to the Redskins. With those two picks, the Rams can address a few needs.

    The biggest, and most obvious, need is at right tackle. But with Joeckel, Lewan and Matthews off the board, Jeff Fisher and Les Snead can look to fill other key positions with their first selection. Adding a pass-rushing defensive tackle has to be near the top of their wishlist.

    The team drafted Michael Brockers at DT last year, but Brockers is a 1-technique tackle who plays the run and occupies blockers. Richardson is a gap-shooting pass-rusher who will give the Rams a very, very good defensive line from left to right.

16. Dallas Cowboys

16 of 38

    Pick: S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas

    The Dallas Cowboys enter an interesting offseason. It's make-or-break time for Jerry Jones' current roster, and for this edition of the Cowboys to realize their potential, upgrades are needed across the board.

    The most glaring need for Dallas is at offensive guard and right tackle. The team can look to add those pieces again through free agency or in later rounds of the draft. With their first pick, the Cowboys need to get a playmaker.

    Kenny Vaccaro from nearby Austin is just that. Vaccaro lines up as a free and strong safety for the Longhorns defense, but he also can play nickel cornerback in the slot if needed. With the way the Dallas safeties have looked this season, that's just the kind of player this team needs.

17. Minnesota Vikings

17 of 38

    Pick: DT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State

    Some might see Johnathan Hankins going here at No. 17 and wonder why he's fallen so far. The simple fact is that Hankins—a lot like Michael Brockers last year—won't be viewed as a pass-rushing defensive tackle. He's not incredibly quick off the ball, and that will slow down his draft stock.

    What Hankins does do well is create havoc in the middle of the defense. He's powerful off the ball and will be able to generate penetration through force. He'll shove the center off the ball, creating opportunities for Kevin Williams and the linebackers to crash the A-gap.

    Hankins will be a fine fit in the new-look Minnesota defense. The team can then focus on getting more talent at wide receiver and maybe adding another quarterback to the mix in later rounds.

18. St. Louis Rams (from Washington)

18 of 38

    Pick: OL Dallas Thomas, Tennessee

    With their first pick, the St. Louis Rams picked up a pass-rushing defensive tackle in Sheldon Richardson. 

    Now the Rams must look at the available players and decide which position is most important. The team still has needs at wide receiver and along the offensive line; it'd also like to get better at safety. With its second first-round pick, finding a right tackle to line up opposite Rodger Saffold will take priority.

    Dallas Thomas has played left tackle and offensive guard for Tennessee, but he's best projected as a right tackle in the NFL. He doesn't quite have the length of a right tackle, but he has the squat body type and strength to be a force as the lead blocker in the Rams run game.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

19 of 38

    Pick: CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State

    The trade that sent Aqib Talib to the New England Patriots left a big hole at cornerback on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' depth chart. It's time to fill that hole.

    Johnthan Banks will challenge Alabama's Dee Milliner for the top cornerback spot. He might even get up there as the top CB depending on how the pre-draft events go. Banks has the playmaking ability to rise up the board, and teams like Tampa—who so badly need a shutdown—will be looking for a stud like Banks to get the job done.

    In following rounds, look for Tampa to address its offensive line and more needs on defense.

20. Cincinnati Bengals

20 of 38

    Pick: DE Bjoern Werner, FSU

    The Cincinnati Bengals have found production from defensive ends Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson, but what they haven't found yet is consistency from the position. Bjoern Werner and his 13 sacks would provide an instant upgrade to the Cincinnati front four.

    The Bengals do have other needs, but this isn't an ideal spot to draft a safety or running back. Instead, the value of Werner—who by all means could go much higher than this—versus reaching for a need is much smarter overall.

    For a team like the Bengals, who are closer to being a yearly contender, adding talent over need makes sense.

21. Pittsburgh Steelers

21 of 38

    Pick: OLB C.J. Mosley, Alabama

    The age of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has become an issue as of late. With seven starters over the age of 30, it's time for the front office to start looking at getting younger and faster. That will start with the 2013 NFL draft.

    Pittsburgh's front office does a great job of addressing needs and adding value each year. The front office is stable, smart and generally one of the best in the game. This year, they'll be tasked with getting younger at outside linebacker, safety, cornerback and nose tackle while considering the possibility of getting better at defensive end.

    To help ease into these changes, the Steelers would love to add C.J. Mosley. The Alabama outside linebacker is an NFL player in waiting. He's well-coached, athletic and disruptive off the edge. There's also enough film on Mosley to see that he could slide inside in a 3-4 defense and not miss a beat.

22. Seattle Seahawks

22 of 38

    Pick: WR Keenan Allen, California

    Pete Carroll has done an amazing job assembling talent in Seattle in conjunction with general manager John Schneider. Now the two must find a way to plug holes in their quest to keep up with the San Francisco 49ers.

    To improve the roster, Seattle must identify players who can help immediately at wide receiver and right tackle. It'll want to find depth at running back, consider drafting more help on the defensive line and even adding another cornerback to work into nickel situations. Up first, though, is wide receiver.

    Cal's Keenan Allen missed time this year with a knee injury, but that shouldn't hold him back once the NFL combine rolls around. Allen's versatility on offense and his playmaking ability will fit in great with Russell Wilson's amazing upside.

23. New York Giants

23 of 38

    Pick: CB David Amerson, North Carolina State

    Cornerback or offensive tackle? That was the question facing us when laying out the seven-round mock draft. The New York Giants have needs at both, but the bad play of Corey Webster keeps running through my mind. Drafting a cornerback first should be Jerry Reese's priority.

    Of course, Reese sets his own board and rarely keeps to groupthink. The Giants general manager is just as likely to add another pass-rusher here instead of looking to fill a need. Reese is an innovator, and he's never afraid to go for the athlete over the sure thing.

    That's a bit of the logic behind this pick. David Amerson entered the year as a top-five pick thanks to his 13 interceptions in 2011, but he struggled at times in man coverage this season. Amerson has been a tale of two seasons, and teams judging his 2011 film will see a shutdown cover man who has amazing big-play talent. 

24. Chicago Bears

24 of 38

    Pick: OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

    If you have seen the Chicago Bears play this year, you've undoubtedly noticed that they're a little weak at left tackle. OK, a lot weak. Drafting a franchise LT will be on the minds of everyone related to the Bears organization this offseason.

    Phil Emery has done a good job as the Bears general manager, adding Brandon Marshall, Michael Bush, Alshon Jeffery and Shea McClellin to the roster since he took over last year. Now Emery must identify which left tackle can most quickly help his team. And more so, which of the left tackles who will actually be available in the later portions of the first round.

    Central Michigan's Eric Fisher hasn't seen a lot of pre-draft love, but he's a legitimate candidate as a franchise left tackle. He has the size and quickness to play out on the edge, and he'll be an instant starter for the Chicago offense.

25. Green Bay Packers

25 of 38

    Pick: OG-OC Barrett Jones, Alabama

    The Green Bay Packers are an incredibly well-built team, but even so, Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy need to start the youth movement. A great place to start is on the offensive line.

    As good as Jeff Saturday has been in his career, his days are numbered. The Packers have no ready-made candidate to step in and take over, which could mean an easy option for Thompson and McCarthy in Round 1. If so, Barrett Jones from Alabama is the right man for the job.

    Jones has played every position for the Crimson Tide offensive line, but he's spent the 2012 season at center. The Packers would love his ability in the run game, but he's also a very intelligent blocker in pass protection and blitz recognition.

26. Indianapolis Colts

26 of 38

    Pick: DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

    You have to hand it to Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano. In one season, they've taken the two-win Indianapolis Colts and built a legitimate playoff contender. The work isn't done, though.

    In their second draft, Grigson and Co. must build on 2012's success. The transition to the 3-4 defense has gone well, but the team still lacks the players needed in the front seven. Look for Indy to lean heavily toward defensive ends, outside linebackers and safeties on defense, while turning its attention to the O-line on offense.

    If Jesse Williams is on the board, the Colts shouldn't have to take long in deciding who the selection will be. The Alabama defensive tackle would be an ideal fit in the Colts' 3-4 scheme. His strength off the edge would be a nice addition to an already improved unit.

27. San Francisco 49ers

27 of 38

    Pick: DT John Jenkins, Georgia

    The San Francisco 49ers' entire 2012 draft class has produced nothing so far this season. In what has essentially become a redshirt season, A.J. Jenkins and LaMichael James have sat on the bench in perpetuity. The chances will most likely come in 2013.

    Trent Baalke's front-office staff won't likely be able to sit on their 2013 class and let them wait a year as well. Instead, the 49ers need to fill holes on a defense that's one of the best in the league but facing issues with age and contracts.

    The nose tackle position could use an upgrade over Isaac Sopoaga, and if John Jenkins is still available, the 49ers have to bite. Jenkins is a big man with the strength to anchor the middle of the defense, but he's quick enough to get upfield and makes plays in a San Francisco scheme that asks the three down linemen to be more agile.

28. Baltimore Ravens

28 of 38

    Pick: ILB Alec Ogletree, Georgia

    Ray Lewis can't be expected to play forever. Neither can Ed Reed. Two of the greatest players of the last decade will see their careers end soon, and when that happens, the Baltimore Ravens are in trouble.

    Replacing Lewis and Reed isn't possible if we're talking about impact, but their spots on the depth chart must be filled. The Ravens currently aren't in a good position to replace either.

    General manager Ozzie Newsome knows this, and he most surely knows that the 2013 draft is his chance to find two youngsters to groom for the eventual takeover at middle linebacker and free safety.

    Georgia's Alec Ogletree isn't a lock to enter in 2013, but his play this year makes it very likely. He's an athletic, rangy 'backer with the skill set that teams love these days. In the Ravens' hybrid defense, Ogletree's versatility would be a big sell.

29. Denver Broncos

29 of 38

    Pick: DT Sylvester Williams, North Carolina

    I was recently talking to an AFC West offensive lineman about the Denver Broncos. He told me that with Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil already in place, if the Broncos could find better defensive tackles, they'd be unstoppable. Hard to argue with that logic.

    The Broncos do need an upgrade at both defensive tackle positions, and with their first pick, they'd be lucky to find Sylvester Williams on the board.

    Williams didn't see a decline in production once Quinton Coples left the UNC D-line; instead, he's taken the chance to show off how good he can be as the focal point of the defense. Williams has played his tail off, and in the process, cemented his status as a first-rounder.

30. New England Patriots

30 of 38

    Pick: FS Eric Reid, LSU

    Devin McCourty has done a fine job filling in at free safety in New England, but what he lacks in raw ability and skills, Eric Reid has plenty of.

    The LSU safety is a playmaker, but he's also a hulking presence in the secondary. Where most free safeties can't tackle well or are more comfortable playing away from the ball, Reid relishes the big hit and is more than comfortable coming up to separate the receiver from the ball.

    The Patriots have lacked a "presence" in the secondary since Rodney Harrison retired. Reid will bring that back.

31. Atlanta Falcons

31 of 38

    Pick: DE Alex Okafor, Texas

    We may be seeing the last games of John Abraham's career this season, and if not this year, then soon. Once Abraham retires, the Atlanta Falcons will find themselves desperately needing help at defensive end.

    The Texas defense took a step back this year, but that had nothing to do with Alex Okafor's play. The DE is one of the best all-around players at his position in this year's class. Unlike the speed rushers drafted ahead of him, Okafor is well-versed against the run and can line up as either a left or right end.

    The Falcons may not need Okafor yet, but they will soon. 

32. Houston Texans

32 of 38

    Pick: WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia

    The Houston Texans are tied for the NFL's best record, but they're not viewed as a true threat to the rest of the league because of holes at wide receiver and in the secondary. Filling those holes will be the focus of Rick Smith and the front office this offseason.

    The wide receiver crop in the 2013 draft is solid, but not spectacular. The most exciting player is the 5'9" West Virginia all-purpose stud Tavon Austin. What Austin lacks in size, he makes up for in speed and vision after the catch. That type of playmaking is what the Texans are missing.

    Smart teams will see his skill set and know he's worthy of a first-round pick.
