    *** THIS IS A LIVE 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT. PICKS ARE BEING POSTED NOW. TO SEE PREVIOUS VERSIONS, CHECK OUT THE ARCHIVED 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT SECTION. FOLLOW @walterfootball FOR UPDATES ***

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    The Jaguars can't go into the 2013 season with Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert as their quarterbacks. They just can't. No one would go to the games - flashy uniforms or not. There are rumors that Jacksonville likes both Ryan Nassib and Matt Barkley. The latter is the one who is available.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Geno Smith, QB

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International
    Despite making the Pro Bowl, Donte Whitner wasn't very good this past year (he surrendered more touchdowns than any safety). Dashon Goldson, meanwhile, left for Tampa Bay in free agency. The 49ers, who might want to upgrade the secondary after Joe Flacco torched them in the Super Bowl, will need a replacement.

    Jonathan Cyprien made this big leap recently. There's so much buzz about him recently, and there are multiple reports indicating that several teams have him ranked as the No. 2 safety in this class. He could go as high as No. 21 to the Bengals.

    Pick change; previously D.J. Hayden, CB

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State
    Chip Kelly said there would be competition at the quarterback position. He probably meant between the signal-caller he just retained, Dennis Dixon and whomever he drafts in Round 2 or 3. I can't see Nick Foles staying on the roster; he doesn't fit the offense, and the Eagles can get a third-rounder at the very worst for him.

    E.J. Manuel is the best fit for Kelly's offense out of the signal-callers available at this juncture, though maybe the Eagles will move up for Geno Smith.

  4. Detroit Lions: Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State
    As I mentioned in Round 1, the Lions are desperate for a left tackle in the wake of Jeff Backus' retirement. Menelik Watson has been mentioned as a possible first-round selection, so he could be the top player on Detroit's board.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 100-plus yards in four of the five games prior to battling Pittsburgh, but that's mostly just great blocking rather than the Law Firm improving. One of the Bengals' top priorities is finding a capable running back.

    As mentioned in the 2013 NFL Draft Rumors page, we received word from a reliable source saying that the Bengals are "all in" on Eddie Lacy. This makes sense, as Cincinnati loves Alabama prospects.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Long, OT

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky
    The Cardinals consider guard to be a much greater need than tackle. If they draft a lineman in the first two rounds, it'll probably be an interior player.

  7. New York Jets: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
    The Jets need a replacement at tight end after losing Dustin Keller to the Dolphins. They reportedly love Zach Ertz, so they'll take him if he's available at this juncture.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
    This is a steal for the Titans, as I had to slot Bjoern Werner somewhere. I removed him from the Giants' pick, and I had trouble finding a spot for him. I'm sure someone will trade up for him in the beginning of the second round if he falls.

    Defensive end is a need for Tennessee though. The Titans have zero depth behind Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley, and in a division that features Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck, they need all the pass-rushing help they can get.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
    General manager Buddy Nix, who is generally forthcoming about his offseason plans, told the media that he plans on drafting a franchise quarterback. He also said that he desperately wants a wide receiver across from Stevie Johnson. The Bills get lucky here, as Cordarrelle Patterson falls right into their laps.

    Pick change; previously Robert Woods, WR

  10. Miami Dolphins: Robert Alford, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
    Brent Grimes was signed, but cornerback is still a huge need for Miami. Counting on Grimes, who is coming off a torn Achilles, would be foolish, so the Dolphins could easily go after two corners relatively early in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Margus Hunt, DE/DT, SMU
    The Buccaneers lost Michael Bennett and Roy Miller this offseason, so they have to find help on the defensive line. They've shown interest in Margus Hunt.

    Pick change; previously Terron Armstead, OT



  12. Carolina Panthers: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State
    The Panthers cut Chris Gamble, so they desperately need some help at the cornerback position.

    Pick change; previously Kawann Short, DT

  13. San Diego Chargers: Justin Pugh, G/OT, Syracuse
    Even if the Chargers are lucky enough to obtain Lane Johnson at No. 11, they'll likely draft another lineman on Day 2. They're in desperate need of guard help.

  14. St. Louis Rams: Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
    The Rams just lost Steven Jackson to the Falcons, so they'll have to find another running back to compete with Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead.

    Pick change; previously Eddie Lacy, RB

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin
    The Cowboys are expected to use a Round 2-4 pick on a running back. Jerry Jones recently said that none of DeMarco Murray's current backups are considered No. 2 runners.

    Pick change; previously Damontre Moore, DE/OLB

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU
    The Steelers, as they always do, catch a falling prospect. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently reported that the Steelers could be targeting an inside linebacker early in the 2013 NFL Draft. Kevin Minter may go at the end of the first round, so he's a steal at this juncture.

  17. New York Giants: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, Texas
    Giant fans know that general manager Jerry Reese loves drafting pass-rushers. With Osi Umenyiora gone and Justin Tuck coming off a down year, Reese may select a defensive end early this April.

  18. Chicago Bears: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
    I had Arthur Brown going to Chicago in the first round a couple of weeks ago, but I'm hearing he could fall a bit because of some injury concerns. The Bears have shown lots of interest in him, however, so they could move up a few spots in Round 2 to land the talented linebacker.

    The Bears once had a strong group of linebackers, but Nick Roach just signed with the Raiders, while Brian Urlacher was told to hit the road because he wouldn't accept $2 million for 2013. D.J. Williams was signed, and while he's currently projected to replace Urlacher in the middle, he could ultimately move to strongside linebacker if Chicago can land someone as talented as Brown.



  19. Washington Redskins: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
    The Redskins signed E.J. Biggers and retained DeAngelo Hall, so they're OK at cornerback for now. However, Biggers, Hall and Josh Wilson all have expiring contracts in March 2014. Long-term corner help is needed.

  20. Minnesota Vikings: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    The front office has to add more talent to complement a very inconsistent Christian Ponder especially in the wake of the Percy Harvin trade. Go here to see my grade for the Percy Harvin trade. Multiple wideouts had to be obtained for Ponder prior to the Greg Jennings signing. One more is still needed.

    Pick change; previously Keenan Allen, WR

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Long, OT/G, Oregon
    It was once considered a given that the Bengals would retain Andre Smith, but ProFootballTalk recently reported that Cincinnati is now expected to let Smith walk away and instead search for a cheaper replacement at right tackle in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Johnathan Franklin, RB

  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon
    I'm giving Kansas City this pick for the rumored Branden Albert trade. It sounds like it's going to happen very soon.

    The Chiefs pretty much sent everyone to Oregon's Pro Day, so Andy Reid had a good look at Kiko Alonso, who could perhaps be Jovan Belcher's replacement.



  23. Green Bay Packers: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
    James Starks has yet to prove that he can stay healthy, while Alex Green has shown nothing in several starts. Cedric Benson is obviously not a long-term answer, though I've been impressed with DuJuan Harris in his limited action. Still, the Packers are expected to address the running back position at some point in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
    The Seahawks traded for Percy Harvin, but they could be in the market for another wideout because Sidney Rice is so unreliable. They're reportedly heavily interested in Quinton Patton.

  25. Houston Texans: Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida
    There's a ton of uncertainty at inside linebacker for Houston. Brian Cushing is coming off a torn ACL, Bradie James is an impending free agent who isn't very good, while neither Tim Dobbins nor Darryl Sharpton is worthy of starting.

  26. Denver Broncos: Johnathan Hankins, NT, Ohio State
    The Broncos signed Terrance Knighton, but that doesn't mean they won't add another interior lineman. Jack Del Rio loves having multiple massive defensive tackles. Think back to his days in Jacksonville with Marcus Stroud and John Henderson.




  27. New England Patriots: Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State
    It's no secret the Patriots need receiving help in the wake of losing both Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd this offseason. Markus Wheaton fits exactly what Bill Belichick looks for in a receiver, and this is the right draft range for him.

  28. Atlanta Falcons: Cornelius Washington, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The overpaid Ray Edwards was cut during the season. John Abraham was also released recently. Defensive end will be a priority early in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the Falcons may even double dip at the position in the first few rounds.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: John Jenkins, NT, Georgia
    The most frustrating part about creating this year's mock draft is finding a spot for all of the nose tackles. There are just too many, and there aren't enough teams that need them. The 49ers, as an example, don't value the position highly, but I think they'll see the value in obtaining someone like John Jenkins at the end of Round 2 or the beginning of Round 3.

    Pick change; previously Margus Hunt, DE/DT

  30. Baltimore Ravens: Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut
    The Ravens like Sio Moore's versatility. They desperately need help at linebacker in the wake of Ray Lewis' retirement, Dannell Ellerbe's departure and Rolando McClain's ridiculous arrest.

    Pick change; previously Darius Slay, CB

Luke Joeckel at #1 and Barrett Jones at #98 makes absolutely no sense at all.

How the PH*CK could there be 97 picks difference between those two?

Jones was all SEC for 3 years, the Rimington Award winner, the Outland Award winner, and anchored the best -0- line in college ball.

Jones will be a steal for somebody in the 1st round. He's as safe a pick as there is in this draft class.

I know there is a lot of hoopla around the Falcons losing Grimes and cutting Robinson but think about the significance of it. Granted, Robinson was a starter but McClain played better. Grimes was hurt all of last season and the Falcons still won 13 games. The issue the Falcons had was running the ball and stopping the run. No big DT for them in your mock and no help along the O-line.

Lorenzo Alexander was backup inside linebacker. Sometimes I question why I even look at your mock draft anymore. We lose a backup inside lb and skins should look for outside lb help?? Nice job walter.....

A few decent 49ers picks (Geathers, Escobar, Lattimore & Klein), but most (including the most important ones) were not good.

Passing on Barrett Jones & Logan Ryan 5 times? Not gonna happen, both should be 2nd round guys, 3rd at the latest.

I hope the Rams do not draft like this. It would be a terrible draft.

Sooo, you telling me that the Cowboys biggest need is O-line but you don't have them taking a O-linemen till the 3rd round? and it isn't even Barrett Jones? And they are ONLY taking 1 O-lineman the entire draft? Seriously? c'mon, that doesn't even make sense on ANY level!!

concerning the third round...you have the Browns drafting Glennon IF Mallet isn't traded to them, and then Wilson to New England in that same round. Shouldn't it be either or?
